This troubled me. I'm not going to ask, but ...

Yesterday is gone, but today is yours, tomorrow is yours, the future is yours.
No matter what you've done in the past, you can plant 'beautiful roses' in the times that lie ahead.

'You cannot redeem yourself by fruitless regret. if you have brought harm to some part of the creation, you can help to set things right by giving a greater amount of good or helpful action to that part of the creation so harmed.'
- Ramadahn

And you will. ALL our beloved animal companions will be there.
Dogs, cats, horses, guinea pigs etc. I heard of a NDE the other day where somebody met their 'dead' pet parakeet! They'll all be there.
Love is love. And love is the most powerful force in the Universe.

Fear of not existing.

As has been said above, even if we are reincarnated, if we do not remember our past selves, or feel the same, how can that really be any different from non existence? We will exist, in some form, but will not be truly 'ourself'.

I am also scared that we will not reunited with loved ones and pets. I miss my cat & hope to be reunited with him, but seems unlikely.

Oh & I fear that my life will be played out in front of me. I have made many decisions which I regret, and I would hope not to live through these again. I don't like my life, as it is, so to watch my whole life unfold in front of me would be akin to watching the scariest & most unnerving horror movie. That isn't to say that I have committed serious crimes, as I haven't, it's just that I've hurt people, like my parents, through alcohol misuse when I was younger, and through never truly realising my potential. I feel as if they look back on when I was a child, full of joy, and then look at me now and realise that the happiness has been poured out of me.

I'm sorry to hear that too. Life is full of regrets and mistakes. Who doesn't have regrets? Who hasn't made mistakes? We all have and it's part of life's learning curve.

We need to learn from our mistakes and move on, as a better and wiser person.

Your parents look back on your childhood when you were 'full of joy' ... I'm sure they do, happy memories, AND I'm equally sure they still wish you were 'full of joy'.

Like I said to Silent Legend, the past is done and gone, but the present and the future are yours.... You can turn things around and be the person you were always meant to be.

Don't you worry about that either! Animals have souls just the same as we humans do.

Being a pet 'owner' you'll know animals have personalities, feelings, emotions, also as we do. They're animated by the same Spirit of God, just packaged differently.

So yes, it'll be there. And right at home. The average moggy is more psychic than anyone on here!

We have a life in spirit, it isn't straight out, straight back in.

In our sleep, we go to the astral. We meet loved ones, old friends etc. It's like an unremembered NDE every night! If we remembered, it would totally distract us from our purpose in this earthly life.

With every life experience we add to our sum being, akin to a lotus flower unfurling its petals one by one.

There is a reason for everything and in everything.
