10 Ways to Communicate With Pets After Their Death
The death of a pet is tragic and painful and can leave a hole in the hearts and lives of those who cared for them. Often, a pet is considered an attachment figure more robust than humans, as pets carry an energy of complete and unconditional love for their owners.

Animals often have strong psychic abilities and are sensitive to the emotions and vibrations of their owners. Most often, these owners share a particular telepathic link or an intuitive bond that is irreplaceable and a tough loss to accept after their pet's death.

It may be difficult to express to others the connection owners share with their pets, as it is a special bond that cannot be recreated. The grief when losing a pet can sometimes leave the owners feeling guilty and ashamed, especially if the pet passed earlier than expected.

A recent survey by top10.com found that nearly 40% of participants are open to psychic mediums for grief and closure, highlighting the profound need for emotional support during such times.

As we start to open our minds as a society, more and more people experience paranormal activities, such as their pets coming through as a ghost and strong presence. They call these spirit animals "phantimals," showing that there are ways to communicate with pets after their death.

Here are 10 ways to communicate with pets after their death.

1. Visit Their Gravesite

If you choose to bury your pet after death, you may have a particular grave site prepared for them. If so, visiting your pet's burial site often is essential, as their remains and memory hold a special connection to them. This allows you to communicate and connect intimately with them via the gravesite.

2. Hold on to Their Favorite Toy

A pet's energy often lingers after their passing. Their scent may remain on an item they played with or an area where they often hung out. Whether that be a special toy or a specific spot on a couch, holding on to that item or spending time in the area can help you connect with your pet and communicate with them.

3. Keep Their Ashes Close

Some owners will choose to cremate their pets. By keeping their ashes, you are holding on to a part of them. Placing their ashes in a particular place that is important to you will not only help you grieve and hold on to their memory, but this act will also be of sentimental value.

Your pet's spirit will be able to feel their body in the ashes as they pass to the other side, and they may come to visit you and communicate with you.

4. Visit Places You Both Loved

Stick to the old routine that you shared. Continue visiting the places that were unique to you. The walks you took and the places you saw together hold memories that retain a pet's spirit long after they have passed. By visiting the sites you have shared, you can continue to grieve and communicate with your pet, send energy their way, and show them that you have not forgotten them.

5. Meditate on Their Behalf

Meditation is a beautiful tool to still our bodies and clear our minds. It helps to connect to the present moment and allows the energies surrounding us to come through in the most unexpected ways.

Meditation can help with visualization and the expansion of your imagination. Meditating allows your soul to travel through the spirit realm and connect to worlds from different timelines and dimensions. You can often recreate a story with your pet through meditation and allow yourself to be open to the messages that come through with your pet. Your pet will take you on a magical adventure in the unconscious realm if you are lucky.

6. Perform a Ritual

Ancient cultures and shamans practiced rituals to worship and communicate with animals. They would often undertake spiritual journeys that would connect them to animal spirits that would act as guides and messengers. They used natural elements to communicate with animals from the other side.

You can connect with your pet by performing a simple ritual such as lighting a candle, praying through crystals, and embodying yourself in nature. We are connected through nature's elements; thus, we are one energetically.

7. Dream About Your Pet

Dreams help us connect to the spirit world, and it is often how we can visit our loved ones that have passed to the other side. The realm of the in-between connections to all types of spiritual beings is possible there. A simple trick is to think about your pet before you fall asleep. This will signal them to meet you in your dream state, allowing them to spend time and communicate with you.

8. Write About Your Pet in Your Journal

Writing in your journal and connecting to the best memories of your pet is a beautiful way to build a connection with them after their death. Not only is this a therapeutic way to allow yourself to release the pain from within, but it can also trigger automatic writing.

Automatic writing is a psychic ability that channels information from a spirit and allows it to come out on paper. You might be surprised to see what you write down and realize that you are communicating with your pet from the spirit realm.

9. Connect Through Tarot Divination

Tarot divination is a practice where you can connect to your pet through mediumship. Since the Tarot is a mirror to the soul, you can connect to your pet by seeking the answers from within.

Often, those close to us live within certain aspects of our personalities. Thus, by connecting with the tarot cards, you can find out what your pet thinks, feels, and wants to say to you after death. It is a great practice that will create a special moment of mindfulness and help you connect deeply with your intuition.

10. Speak to a Pet Psychic

Speaking to a pet psychic with various psychic abilities can help you connect with your pet. They can provide an online psychic reading to connect with your pet in the spirit world and create a clear picture of what they want to say to you at this time of grieving.

The sensations that come through, such as goosebumps or a feeling of upliftment and protection, are clear signs that your pet is communicating with you. At times, you may even hear them speaking (barking, purring, etc.) and moving their feet on the ground.
