Ghost Dog

Puma in the Light, ©2011 Rose De Dan www.reikishamanic.comI had a very interesting experience with my neighbor recently. In conversation I said something about perhaps looking for another dog, and she said, “How many dogs would that be?“

I looked at her a little oddly and said, “My dog Puma has been gone for three years.”

My neighbor looked startled. She said, “That can’t be, I always see him walking with you. Husky-type dog, right?”

I said, “Yes, he was—but he has been in spirit for three years.”

My neighbor looked like I had hit her with a ton of bricks, and I urged her to sit down—I thought she was going to pass out.

I gently said, “I know you know what I do for a living. There are many animal spirits around me—you are not crazy.”

I think it is going to take her a while to process the fact that she has been seeing Puma’s spirit.

Bless you, Puma—I am grateful for your support. I have told him from time to time that he does not have to stay around, but he has said it is what he wants to do.

And I am grateful that it was Puma that my neighbor saw, not my power animal. That really would have thrown her for a loop!
