Pet Expo: Human Spirit Comes Through /Meet Some Pet Folks

Wow. I just got back from the Boston area where I had a booth and talked about my book "Pets and the Afterlife" at the New England Pet Expo in Wilmington, Massachusetts, and I had an amazing time!   I met so many wonderful people there and many had a story to tell.
  Over the next week, I'll have pictures of great folks I met and their dogs, too.  In this blog, though  I want to share a story about a man's spirit that gave me messages that  helped give healing to his sister; and I want to give a shout out to some fellow vendors that I met, and whom pet owners may want to get to know!

A man's spirit reached out to me to comfort his sister
HUMAN SPIRIT COMES THROUGH AT PET EXPO - Usually when I'm in large crowds the commotion makes it hard to concentrate and get messages. However, at the Pet Expo this weekend, a woman came to the table and her late brother came through. 
  When she came to the table she asked about spirits, animal and human. She said that her brother passed recently- and as soon as she said that his spirit came forth. He told me to tell her not to feel guilty that she wasn't there at the time of his passing and she understood. She was feeling guilty. What helped was that he made me say the same exact words he said to her in the last conversation he had with his sister (the woman at my booth) before he died.  I told her that her brother was telling me that "he wanted to go on his own terms." Those were his exact words to his sister in a phone conversation on  the night he later passed. 
   Often, people want to pass on their own. They don't want people around. That was what he told me he wanted. His spirit told me that if his sister were there holding his hand as he passed, it would be traumatic for her, and she would never forget it... and it would haunt her all her days, and he didn't want that to happen. So, he passed "on his own terms."
  The last message was that the spirit's sister should not feel guilty for not being there. He passed as HE wanted. The message seemed to bring comfort to his sister who stood before me, and I was so pleased to pass it along. That's what being a medium is all about.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
