Everyday Signs from Pets in Spirit Jul 10, 2016
I'm often asked how to find signs from our pets and loved ones who have crossed over, or even from pets that are still living and trying to communicate with us.  I know many friends and clients who are apprehensive and think that they aren't "good" at recognizing signs.
