Animals in SpiritAnimals in Spirit: Our Faithful Companions

Penelope Smith





How do animals feel about crossing over?

What do they communicate to us after they die?

How can we contact animals in spirit?

Losing an animal companion can be a painful experience, yet by examining their transition from a spiritual perspective, Animals in Spirit explores the process of dying from the viewpoints of animals and their people. Learn how animals choose their paths in each life, and the knowledge they leave behind for their humans. As animals make their way from the physical into the spiritual realm, Animals in Spirit can strengthen the union with our beloved friends by teaching us to accept and understand the full experience of life.

With true stories, insights from animals and their human friends, as well as meditations to help communicate with animals in the spirit realm, Animals in Spirit will help heal the feelings of loss and separation by connecting you to your faithful companion in spirit.


Publishers Weekly

Those who live with and love animals dread the moment when their beloved companions will leave them. Smith, an animal communicator for more than 30 years, and author of two books on talking with the creatures, provides a unique and detailed account, from the animals’ perspective, on the ways they transition from the physical to the spiritual realm. Smith discusses the timing of their departure, their feelings about living in the spirit realm, and reincarnation. Stories that recount individual experiences with animals on earth as well as the spirit realm are most of the book, including ones about animals who want their humans to know that they didn’t suffer in dying, that they may have actually orchestrated their death for a particular reason, that they forgive any wrongs or that they are planning to come back in another form. Perhaps most helpful is the chapter in which animals counsel their human friends not to grieve for them but to seek joy instead. For those new to animal communication, Smith includes a short instructional chapter. Readers open to Smith’s claims about animal communication or who grieve departed furry friends will find much in these pages to offer comfort and hope. (Jan.)

Simply a beautiful book, that has more specific information about the purpose for pets being in our lives, how they feel about us and what happens next than any other book I have read. If you have had a incredibly deep connection with your animals – this book will help you realize why that is so and the importance in our own spiritual growth. I am still grieving the loss of two of my dogs from years ago, though the book made me cry numerous times – it was incredibly comforting. This book will validate that you were correct, your dog, cat, bird all have wonderful souls and are here to teach, heal and love us and guides us how to connect to them in their afterlife.

Penelope Smith is one of the forerunners in the field of animal communication. When she contacted me with information about a new book she was writing, and asked if I would like to contribute the story of my own reincarnated dog, Kai, I was honored. Kai’s story is one of many in this marvelous volume that provide insight, comfort, and peace to those seeking information regarding animals in the afterlife.

If you are a pet lover, and have lost a dear animal friend, I highly recommend (and often do to my own animal communication clients) “Animals in Spirit”.

For me personally, this was a healing read. Depending upon your depth of spirituality (mine is pretty deep)it will prove to be very thought provoking and assuring at the same time. The book is filled with stories of animals who have crossed. The author is an animal communicator, so if you are closed to this possibility, this book is not for you. If you are open minded about the spirit world, believe animals enter there after their time here has ended, and have lost a pet, then this is the book for you. I will often revisit, just to remind myself that they never really leave us.
