This is Bailey. She was my “heart dog”. When I looked into her eyes, I felt like she could see into my soul. She knew what I was thinking and feeling, and I knew her like the back of my hand. We were buddies. We were kindred spirits.
Last July there were some telltale issues that said something wasn’t right. I was in denial. My soul knew, but my heart couldn’t face it. I took her to the vet, and they said they’d get back to me with test results.
That same night she was getting weak. She always slept next to me, but that night I picked her up and carried her to the bedroom and laid her down at the foot of the bed where there was more room.
My cat woke me up at 2am, and I instantly knew she was gone. I reached over, and sure enough, she had found the strength to come over and lay next to me before she passed.
A flood of lessons came into my mind about how she wanted me to live my life. And that day, I felt like my heart had been ripped out of my chest. But, I also knew that her soul is still around, and I would only allow myself a short time to grieve.
Beyond that, I knew I would just wallow in pity, and not see the beauty of the messages. And I want that for you too; to heal, move forward and know that your earth angel is now a loving guide. It’s time to let go of guilt or remorse, because that doesn’t exist in the spirit world.
