The Use Of Energy To Create A Sign
Do our deceased pets visit us? Absolutely. But it takes a lot out of them to do so.
Since your pets don’t have a physical body anymore, they need to generate a great deal of energy to contact you. That energy can be supplied from energy-conducting items like batteries, water, or crystals.
Be sure to look hard for the signs that your pet is reaching out from the other side. These signs might be subtle so try to quiet your mind to enable you to experience them.
Also try to limit distractions, like technology, social media, or the daily news so they don’t interfere with the signs your pet is sending.
Your departed pets need energy or spiritual fuel to send signs. They don’t have a physical body so they have to draw upon an energy source to communicate with you.
Spiritual fuel can be supplied through any item that conducts energy such as quartz crystals, batteries, an indoor fountain.
