A while back, my beloved dog who I owned for her whole life, nearly 14 years, had to be put to sleep. I was with her, and whispered to her to find me one day again. I put a little statue and picture of her on my altar, and as time went on, I tried to put her out of my mind, as we must do as all things are impermanent.
The other night as I was falling asleep, I closed my eyes and saw her very clearly, smiling? at me, and I said, not really in a conscious way, but like a part of me was having the conversation and the rest was just listening. I said "are you ready? has it been that long already?" at that moment, she took on some different form I cannot explain, which embraced my whole self and then "entered" my soul? not sure how to explain it. But I started to cry and said "ok, but make sure you find me when you're ready, you find mommy" and then she was gone. I felt really weird afterwards.
Yesterday I had counted the days since her death, which was 49. Then I read one of the Dalai Lama's teachings of what happens when we die and are reborn, which said the maximum # of days between death and entering into the next life was 49. That really freaked me out. Can anyone explain or confirm such an occurance? Or do I need to admit myself into a mental institution?
