Présentation de l'éditeur

Kim Sheridan grew up with animals as her constant companions. Each time she faced the death of a beloved pet, along with the pain came the same questions, to which she could find no answers. Then, mysterious things began to happen that she couldn’t explain, which led her on an incredible journey to uncover the truth. Along with her own extraordinary experiences, she compiled heartwarming and meaningful true stories of everyday people around the world, and discovered compelling evidence that forever erased her own doubts about an afterlife for animals. This book provides enormous comfort and reassurance to anyone who has ever cherished a pet, and food for thought for anyone who has ever questioned the place of these beloved creatures in the larger scheme of things, both here on Earth and beyond.

Allen M. Schoen, MS, DVM, author of Kindred Spirits and Love, Miracles and Animal Healing

Ce livre (plus d'édition en français) est un recueil de manifestations de "vie" alors que nos compagnons animaux sont décédés.
L'auteure a recueilli un nombre impressionnant de témoignages, dont beaucoup émanent de personnes ayant bien les pieds sur terre.
Ce livre ouvre la discussion sur certaines croyances que nous avons . Il remet en perspective le lien qui nous uni à nos amis animaux ...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must read for any pet owner!! 15 septembre 2003
Par J. King - Publié sur
I've read several books on this subject and this book is the best. The stories are heartwarming and miraculous!
If you've ever lost a beloved pet, then this is the book to read.
The loss of a pet can be so overwhelming. With this book, you know you are not alone in your grief. You will also know that your pet, without a doubt lives on and is most likely is still with you! You will know what signs to look for by hearing others tell their inspirational stories!
What a gift this book is, in the presence of grief!!
It is very well written and will keep you turning the pages for more.
I would highly recommend!!!! The value is priceless to someone who has lost a beloved animal companion.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 You don't have to be a "believer" to love this book!! 7 décembre 2003
Par Ace - Publié sur
As, for me -- I Do believe. And this book opens my eyes even further, to the wonderful, sometimes very spiritual connection we have with our animal companions (be they horse, cat, dog, goldfish, rat - and others) in this life and beyond.
Even those who consider themselves skeptics, I believe, might find themselves resonating with specific narratives -- perhaps even, in their hearts, saying to themselves "This happened to me once!!!"
"Anima" is the ancient Latin word for "soul" -- just add an "L" to "Anima" and what do you get? This book is a fitting tribute to those non-human beings who shower us with unconditional love and devotion, and whose actions towards us sometimes go far beyond the call of duty, these pets who touch our souls and emotions, even after their deaths, with a love and concern sometimes far above what we expect in this world.
I think Kim Sheridan (who shows a great compassion, love and sensitivity towards her animal companions) has done a masterful job in putting this book together; I especially admire the way she puts specific narratives together in certain sections. I know this book must have been a labor of love.
Mahatma Ghandi once said something about how "a nation is known by the way it treats its animals". Well, this book, "Animals and the Afterlife" is populated not only by a wonderful "nation" of caring human beings, but especially by a fascinating array of loving, caring pets who even after dying have not forgotten the beloved people with whom they shared their lives.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 BETTER THAN I EVER IMAGINED! BEST BOOK I HAVE EVER READ! 10 octobre 2003
Par Barbara Howard - Publié sur
This is BY FAR the most comprehensive and fascinating book on this subject. The author has done an amazing job of covering the topic from so many different angles and so many different people's experiences, including her own. Another review said she talked about animal communication in the book, but that's just one of many, many topics she covers. This book is about far more than that! What I like about it is it isn't just about theories or interpretations. It's about actual evidence that can't be explained away. I like that the author herself started out as a skeptic, so she had to be convinced of things herself and clearly isn't just telling people what she thinks they want to hear. This book provided SO much comfort for me, and I know it will for so many others who are also looking for answers. No other book on this subject has even come close to providing the healing gift this book has given to me! I also like that it contains stories about so many different types of animals. Not only are there tons of stories about dogs and cats, but also stories about horses, bunnies, birds, rats, and even goldfish! Kim Sheridan is a wonderfully gifted author and such an Angel. Her heart, soul, and deep caring are so evident. Her beautiful and fascinating story is also throughout the book. Very well written, it kept me turning the pages. Wow! 414 pages has never gone so fast! I didn't want it to end! Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A moving testament to love 17 septembre 2004
Par Patricia Leslie - Publié sur
I think it likely that this book will in some way permanently change the consciousness of every animal lover -- whether believer, skeptic, or agnostic. the writing style is lucid and accessible, and the contents so compelling that I devoured it in record time.

Central to the book are scores of first-person accounts of contact with beloved animal companions from the "other side." The informants' demographics cut broadly across regional, cultural, educational and career lines. Ms. Sheridan adds her own commentaries, placing each anecdote in a more general context. These range from humane issues to metaphysical wisdom. Her own profound connection to animals provides a through-line of touching personal experiences and incisive observations as well. Types of "other-side" contact can take many forms, and Ms. Sheridan devotes a chapter to each. These include visual (in both dreams and waking visions), as well as hearing, smell, and touch. Some people receive messages through mediums or animal communicators.

While these are inescapably stories involving loss, tragedy, and grief, I found them uplifting rather than depressing. Each is a moving testament to the kind of love which can bind together individuals of different species, even beyond death. Each account attains closure with spiritual comfort, consolation and hope. The chapter on grief provides such wise counsel and compassionate insights, that it should be required reading for all veterinary and shelter personnel, as well as clergy and psychologists. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who is dealing with grief over the passing of a beloved animal companion, or who is facing such a loss. It will also be interesting to anyone curious about the spiritual aspect of animals.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An impressive case for the immortal soul of individual animals 22 janvier 2006
Par Un client - Publié sur
Anyone exploring the field of life after death, will sooner or later ask the question whether the afterlife is limited to humans. Christian tradition usually holds that it is; although members of animal species would possess a soul, this would be a mortal soul. As far as I know, Kim Sheridan is one of the main contemporary authors who seriously challenge this view. She uses a wide range of spontaneous experiences of people who lost a beloved pet. In this respect, her book strongly resembles the work by the Guggenheims about spontaneous types of postmortem contact with human spirits. It is remarkable how many experiences with animal souls have been reported, ranging from telepathic messages and apparitions to stories about reincarnation. The sympathetic author has placed these against the background of her own experiences, which greatly enhances the liveliness of her book.
Chapter 7 is dedicated to Near-Death Experiences in animals. The author claims that some animals that were close to death sometimes show personality changes that remind one of the transformation in human NDE-ers. They appear to radiate a deep peace and are much more loving than they used to be, even if they had behavioral problems before the NDE.
She also gives attention to NDEs in which deceased pets play a prominent role. Such as Obie, the cat of Shelley Nunemaker that was accompanied by people in whites robes (p. 89).
Karen Young observed how her dying cat Strawberry Shortcake spiritually left her body. She saw two smiling persons opening a doorway with sunlight and a lot of activity beyond it. Strawberry ran toward the doorway after looking back at her dead body (p. 194).
Shortly before her horse Ella passed away, Tracey Pollard from England had a detailled panoramic vision of Ella's life.
'It flashed past in an instant buy she felt that both Ella and she experienced it. It was extremely moving' (p. 334).
One of the experiences that impressed me the most is the case of Daisy (p. 223). Daisy was a neglected dog that was always tied up and she had to guard the gate. When her owner went on a trip, he asked Regina Fetrat to take care of Daisy for a while. Regina bathed her and gave her a good time. Years later, when Regina had lost all contact to Daisy or her owner, she dreamed that the dog thanked her for the good time they had spent together. During the following week, Regina felt the urge to call her owner. He told her that Daisy had passed away the week before.
Animals and the Afterlife puts the controversial topic of an immortal animal soul on a higher level by the author's thorough, intelligent approach.
Kim Sheridan defends the notion of the survival of an individual animal soul (rather than a fusion into an impersonal group soul).
Furthermore, in the last chapters Sheridan explores the general consequences of her findings for our perspective on animals. She also mentions some remarkable recent discoveries from mainstream animal psychology and advocates a much more respectful attitude to animals, that is expressed among other things in a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle.
Warmly recommended!
