The Spiritual Contracts of Animals

Me: Let’s talk about animals. Are they able to make pre-birth contracts to be victims of abuse, or are they just extensions of the abuser’s energy and they just go along for the ride? In other words, do they have contracts?

Erik: Hell, yeah. Every living force on Earth creates a conscious effort to leave the dimensional plane that they’re in and come here.

Me: Why do animals have contracts? Is it for their own personal growth or is it purely to teach us?

Erik: Let’s take the word, “animal” out of it, Mom, and let’s so life force.

Me: Yes. Life forces.

Erik: So, why do life forces have contracts?

Me: Yeah.

Erik: Cuz I think if you make it broader, people can see themselves as part of that answer. It makes it more human and people understand what’s alike to them. Really, that life force in an animal is human. The life force in a plant or an insect or a worm or whatever—that’s human.

(I guess he means a life force is a life force.)

Erik: They still have subcultures and societies and relationships to like minds, to enemies, to self, to weather. They’re having the same experience. They have the use of language and communities. Each of these subcultures, animal life as a dog, wild or domestic, animal life as a horse—these subcultures provide different levels of lessons. Like, you really want to learn compassion and loyalty? Be a dog, a domesticated dog. It’s superb how the personality of that subculture of the dog yearns to, enjoys and loves being part of a pack, being part of a family. Those are natural instincts. And giving attention over to the lead dog of the pack—the level of emotions and focus that’s required for that—it’s something you can’t truly obtain if you’re choosing to be human all the time.

Me: So, they are here to learn some things, not just act as teaching tools?

Erik: Yeah. All life forces do.

Me: So, it’s God, you know, as in the Conversations with God book by Neale Donald Walsh, um, that God is just manifesting parts of Itself as life forces and creating different lives to experience itself?

Erik: Yes!

Me: Okay. And they’re all part of the collective that is God Source. Everything is God.

Erik: Yes.

Me: All right.


Here’s a message from Betty Daniel, a blog member and gifted writer. Please enjoy her free e-books. 

Erik channels much of the information to her, so you know each book is going to be hilarious!

BOOK 4: Is now available.

The ERIK novels which he says he downloads to E. J. Daniel are FREE as PDFs sent to your email. Request any or all from: (That’s “q” as in quick) Read them in this order:




THE GREAT SCHEME OF THINGS. Book 4 If you have already received the first three books, just request Book 4.


Dear Reader,

The journey on which you’re about to embark will take you through stories that are deeply personal and involves a relationship between a mother and her son.

As a physician raised by two atheists, I had no personal belief system about life after death. In a word, I was a confirmed skeptic. As my journey progressed, my mind opened. It is my sincerest hope that yours will open as well and that you will have a greater understanding of your own life and what’s to come ahead.

Although Erik sometimes paints a rosy picture of the afterlife, time and time again he stresses that suicide is not the answer to one’s problems. If you struggle, please understand that the information in my blog and my book is no substitute for professional help. Please click here for a list of resources for help when you find yourself considering taking your own life. Know that they are readily available when you feel that hopelessness and despair that many of us feel from time to time in our lives.

I refuse all donations and ad revenue on the blog. It is my dream to one day establish a nonprofit organization that delivers a variety of spiritual services for those who have lost loved ones to suicide and cannot afford that assistance on their own. It’s a mission of love, sacrifice, and dedication.

Love and light,

    OMG! this is the 4th day in a row when the post has direct relationship to a discussion I was having with someone else the day before. I feel amazed, weird and blessed all at the same time. coincidence? IDK

    • Cynthia DeSoto Buckner

      Synchronicity! 😉

  • Oktobre Taylor

    One of my first real experiences with going to hear a spiritual person speak in person, I was completely put off of him when he answered a question about pets and animals. In his answer he basically made them out to be less and seemed to think of them as not the conscious beings I know in my heart them to be. It is funny how one little thing could turn me so completely from being able to hear anything else this man had to say. It wasn’t long after that I found Erik….and thank goodness too, because I was ready to turn my back on all of that spiritual stuff because if they all felt that way about animals, I knew it wasn’t for me.

    • debra sharpton

      i agree fully…i know my animals will be there when i transition

    • Elijah

      Good for you Oktobre….. I would have been put off by this so called spiritual person. To not recognize these beautiful angels is sad for all of humanity. I tell my mom all the time…. thank you for raising me with animals. And like Debra…. I know my babies will be there when i transition.

    I was able to be in a small group session with James Van Praagh last September. Someone’s dog came through. The dog was able to convey things about the lady’s (his owner) day, like “you need milk.” She said she had been standing at her open fridge making a mental list that morning. Her dog also said that he still lays in his favorite spot in her house. James VP said that animals often come through and they communicate with him through thought and mental pictures.

    • JuliaC

      Thank you. Sometimes I “feel” my Maggie girl in what was her favorite nighttime spot across my bedroom door, particularly when I’m ill or down. I chalked it up to wishful thinking, but maybe she’s still doing her border collie routine of “guarding the gate” when I’m unwell.

  • julia

    out of curiousity, can you breathe in the afterlife? cuz being dead and all, wouldn’t not being able to breathe be very uncomfortable?

    • Nope.They don’t have lungs and they don’t have a body that requires oxygen to stay alive. Pretty cool.

      • julia

        that sounds very uncomfortable to me, like very suffocating. and no heartbeat either? like a constant heart stop? that sounds awful!

      • Simon

        Could you send me the pdf of the books as the author doesn’t reply to my requests.

      • Which book?

      • Simon

        The one’s written with Eric.

      • Simon

        The one co-authored by Eric and the author, I don’t think she got my emails.

      • I didn’t see this. You mean his book My Life After Death? It’s available on Amazon for only around $9.

      • Simon

        Not you, it was Tre, it wasn’t the book you wrote, it was the one given free by that author. I will delete my old comments.

      • Tre Toco

        Um let me think, no!!!!!!

      • Simon

        It has taken you 9 months to get back to me, I find you rude and not spiritual at all.

      • Who is this directed at?

      • Sometimes I get overwhelmed by all the emails, comments and FB messages. It ordinarily takes me 3-4 hours a day to answer them all, but sometimes I miss a few. That’s not intentional. You just have to get back to me, but please don’t assume I’m being rude. I’m actually doing the best I can.

      • you do amazing work, Elisa.

      • Aw, thanks!

  • Milla

    Ah Erik!! this post made me feel sad/uncomfortable and guilty cz I killed some ants that suddenly “showed up” in my room…tons of that..crawling on my bed and stuff…i was afraid that they would enter my ear drums! It happened once and the pain was excruciating! But the point here is that: I killed many ants:(

  • Gordon Ross

    In the book _Animal Souls_ in his Explorer Race series of books, Robert Shapiro (not the lawyer) channels a number of animal souls. These are not the spirits of individual animals. Well, in a sense they are. Each soul speaks as the representative of its species. It talks about the function that its species has on earth in their support of human beings. I enjoyed the book very much, and I think you will too.

  • Hi Elisa! I had a chat with a rat last year that dovetails with this conversation: Rats are a noble people :). Great post you guys!!

  • Am_Bro_Se

    Any insights on people that feel overwhelmingly drawn to rescuing animals and how it relates to spiritual contracts, etc.?

    • I bet it’s part of some contract–maybe to teach others compassion, etc. Or maybe that person abused animals or was an abused animal in the past.

  • Audie

    Great Post!….on a side note, I just requested the 4th Book from EJ Daniels. I read the first 3 books and they were Great! I learned a lot, they were fun to read, (It is Erik talking through EJ Daniels) and they were FREE! Can’t go wrong with that. Thanks for the update on Book 4 Dr Elisa.

  • Martina

    Can an animal be your soulmate ?

  • Claire

    I understand WHY we choose to make contracts, but if God loves us, why does He make us go through various lives, many of which are painful? It has the same feeling of being abused by a parent who is supposed to love you.

  • KC123

    First off, thank you, Elisa and Erik!! I’m broken-hearted about the hundreds of pilot whales that beached (and re-beached) themselves in New Zealand this week. Do you think we may be able to find out why this happened?

    • Oh no! That’s so sad. I hope they were able to help some of them back into the water. That would be a good question to ask in Raylene’s monthly Q&A or the radio show and we could ask how we can help them when it happens in the future.

  • Tre Toco

    I’m suffering so bad from losing my dog.

    • Sending you love and hugs. Maybe you should get one of the mediums to channel a message from him.

    • <3 I'm sorry you lost your animal friend. It's really hard to lost the special ones.
