Do Animals Have A Purpose In Life?

concept of having a purpose in life is something many people may
muse over at some stage in their life. However, the likelihood
of their pet actually having a purpose in life is a bit
far-fetched. Or is it?
the thing. Animals are not the dumb, insentient creatures that
we’ve been encouraged to believe they are and do indeed have a
purpose beyond simply being our companions or looking cute at
the end of a leash.
animals cannot talk, we need to find a way of tuning into them.
As with all things, some people are better at this than others
and many people these days make a living as animal
It was one
such person who was able to help a couple in the US who had a
problem with their disappearing cat. The couple had moved to a
house about half a mile from their old house. It was in a
pleasant, quiet neighbourhood with a big garden and should have
provided the perfect home for their cat. The cat, however, had
other ideas, and kept running back to its old home.
were at their wits’ end and were desperate to find out why the
cat was doing this. The animal communicator tuned into their
cat who was immediately insistent that the move had robbed him
of his purpose in life. The cat elaborated that at their former
home, at 9.00am each morning, he’d stroll round the corner and
position himself outside the entrance to the library. He’d
greet all the customers as they filed in and they’d reach down
and pet him. He loved his job and felt very fulfilled
and brought a lot of pleasure to the people who used the
– pets apparently don’t like to think that we own them and don’t
consider us as their owners – were initially quite shocked by
this; but upon reflection, they realised that it was his
habit to sit outside the library each morning, yet it had never
impacted upon them until now.
to be done? There wasn’t a library-equivalent for several miles
and they needed to find him a 'new job'. They racked their
brains and remembered that there was a residential home about a
mile away and so they asked if it’d be possible to take their
cat in several times a week and offer his services to the
residents. It was an excellent solution, everybody was happy
and the cat no longer felt the need to run away and return to
his former employment.
more poignant story came to my attention via an animal
communicator called 'Nick' whom I met several years ago.
He was at pains to explain that animal communication doesn’t
always 'fix' things but it can be pivotal in creating change
between the animal and its human. Animals can have a mission to
accomplish and sometimes they have to die because their death
can be the lesson for the owner.
named 'Nancy' had rung him up because one of her dogs, a male
dog called 'Chester', was behaving extremely aggressively
towards other dogs and it was quite clear that he wanted to rip
their throats out and kill them. Nancy was desperate for
Nick to communicate with Chester and see if there was anything
that could be done to staunch his behaviour.
Nick had even had a chance to link with Chester, one of the
other dogs, a little female called 'Molly', came in and told
Nick that Chester was reflecting Nancy’s fear of men. She
showed her human as an eight year-old child and a male figure
lurking in the background, a heavy feeling of abuse hanging in
the air. Nick asked if it was her father but it was apparently
someone of a similar age.
related this back to Nancy, she was terribly upset because she’d
never told anybody about this before, and Molly was pretty
accurate because it was Nancy’s uncle who had abused her.
tended to happen is that when Nancy’s husband would call to her
from another room, the stimulus of his voice would bring up
disturbing flashbacks from her past.
the dog told Nick that he wanted to help his ‘mum’ to overcome
her past and move forward with her life. The decision was made
that Nick would perform 3 powerful Reiki sessions on Nancy in an
attempt to heal her emotionally but unfortunately the dog got
worse during these sessions. Chester said that the Reiki was
helping but it just wasn’t enough. Nevertheless they decided to
carry on with Reiki but whilst Nancy was improving little by
little, it only served to exacerbate the dog’s condition. It
just didn’t make sense.
the day of reckoning arrived for Chester and he was taken to the
vet to be put down. Nick linked in with him and Chester said,
“My mum’s not through this yet. If I leave, she’ll have
something to reflect on and I can help her to let go of her past
emotions. Please tell her not to remember me as a dog with a
problem, but as an angel who came to help her.” Chester
admitted that he was a little nervous but that he was eager to
get stuck into his next life.
of months later, Nancy contacted Nick and told him that she felt
better than ever and that she’d finally been able to let go of
her wretched childhood memories which had haunted her for so
long. She really felt as though something quite superhuman
had intervened to help her reach this state of security and
clear that Chester had been able to do more for his owner once
he’d left his physical body and had been able to heal her in an
extremely potent way.
story is an indication of how our animals give us unconditional
love and will keep on striving to help us, even when they’ve
left this planet. Animals will go to amazing lengths
to assist, even if it means literally giving up their life
humans, today’s task is to ascertain what your pet’s purpose is
in life. My cat, like most cats, does little more than eat,
sleep and purr, and allegedly cleanses the energy in our house,
creating a peaceful, 'chilled-out' environment. A most
worthwhile purr-pose, I'd say!
