All beings, human and animal, have a body and a personality with which they interact with others in this world in everyday life. More fundamental to each being, however, is their spirit or energy or soul. Although we commonly think of our soul being held within our bodies and personalities, it’s really more appropriate to think of our bodies and personalities being held within our souls. When we discard our bodies at the end of our mortal lives, our soul remains and is the eternal part of us that endures. True animal communication takes place at the level of the soul, a deep place at which we are all connected. This is why we can communicate with animals anywhere in this world and also after death as well.
