A friend and I have sort of co-owned a rescued dog for the last seven years. Today we had to put her down. She was more my friend's dog than mine, so
as the vet was giving her the injection, my friend hugged her upper body, while I had my hand on her rear leg. As she was dying, even though I
couldn't feel her heartbeat, I felt her life leave her body. I mean, physically felt it.
I guess I can't really describe it very well unless you've experienced it yourself. Whenever I've put my hand upon a dying person or animal, I've
felt it when their life leaves. I'm not sure if my friend felt it and didn't really want to ask, poor guy was just lost, he kept asking the vet if
she was really gone. But I know I'm not the only one. Another time, another place, another friend, we were with someone we knew as he was dying from
blood loss. There was nothing we could to do save him. We each held one of his hands as he closed his eyes and coughed up his last breath, and we
simultaneously felt it when he died, we both looked up at each other and knew. We didn't even think about checking his heartbeat or pulse to be
honest, it was only when someone else arrived very shortly afterwards and checked his pulse that we remembered. Of course, he was dead. We just
didn't feel the need because we tangibly felt his life depart.
Human or animal, it's basically the same feeling. It's almost like, you feel this energy suddenly come from the dying one, and it's kinda like, you
can feel it travelling through you. It's only for a second or three, not very long. The only (slight) difference between people and animals is that
with people, it feels a bit stronger, sharper almost. Almost like an electric pulse that resonates through you. Every person, every animal, if you put
your hand on them as they die, you'll feel it.
I don't consider this "paranormal" really, the reason I ask it here is because I figure many people will know about souls and the nature of
I want to know, if everyone can feel it? I want to know if other people here have touched a dying person or animal and felt the same thing? Or can
only some people feel it? It's not an emotional thing, not a psychic thing, but a tangible, physical thing.
The only people I've ever really spoken to about it have been people who have also experienced a lot of death, like in warzones, or have been not
only hunters, but hunters who actually respect the animals they kill, not those arseholes who think absolutely nothing of killing of animal, the ones
who treat it same as pulling up a weed. The sort of people who will automatically reach out to touch a dying person, if that makes sense. The ones
What are your experiences with death? If you've had to put a pet down, did you feel it when their life left? Where do you think their souls go?
