We share a special emotional connection with our pets. Whether you are a dog lover or a cat person, your bond with your furry friends has a deeper spiritual meaning than just giving you company and loving unconditionally.
Spiritual meaning of animals
Dogs and cats often teach us a lot about communication, acceptance, and love. However, they have a deeper purpose to serve in their and our lives. Not only do they help and support us in our core purpose in life, but they also act as angels and spirit guides who help us realize exactly what we need to. Our pets can “manifest our illnesses, take on our emotional energy, and help ground us. They allow us to express a previously untold emotion that resides inside. Pets hold a mirror up to us, allowing us to see ourselves through loving eyes,” explains pet communicator Ann Marie Hoff.
Our pets often create circumstances that help us grow, be more loving and compassionate and help us meet important people who become a crucial part in our life’s journey. But there is a deeper spiritual meaning of having pets. They are not just our spirit guides, our cats and dogs are spiritual healers as well. Have you ever felt depressed while hugging your cat or dog? Have you ever noticed how your frustrations from a long day instantly disappear the moment you reach home and see your beloved pet? Our pets heal our soul with unconditional love.
“Pets bring healing,” writes hypnotist and author Robert Schwartz. He explains “Indeed, our animal companions are master healers, in part because they embody love in an entirely non-threatening form. The clear absence of threat creates within us a willingness to receive healing.” Not only that, but pets are also highly sensitive to energies as well. “They can detect a change in the vibratory pattern of a body very easily,” explains Cathedral of the Soul. As our pets love us unconditionally, they absorb our negative energies.

How dogs help us spiritually
Both dogs and cats have a profound spiritual meaning. Dogs are exceptionally intuitive and view life with their senses. They can sense energies and spirits just like humans and can distinguish between positive and negative energies. This is the reason why they often bark, growl, and behave strangely.
“Dogs come with a charged purpose; these loving beings are here to help us and to defend men. In addition to defending people in our physical plan, they defend their owners and the people they love, especially of curses and spells,” writes Cathedral of the Soul. Dogs often absorb negative energies and stop them from reaching you. This is perhaps the reason why pet dogs often fall sick suddenly and expire without any explanation. Cathedral of the Soul adds “They protect their owners from the visible and the invisible and are rewarded for it when they die.”
How cats help us spiritually
Cats also have a strong spiritual meaning for coming into our lives. It is widely believed that cats absorb negative energy from our bodies and release the negativity that it absorbs from you later when it sleeps.
