What Your Animals (Alive Or Passed) Are Trying To Teach You – Afterlife TV

My good friend and inaugural Afterlife TV guest, Danielle MacKinnon, joins me in the studio to discuss a number of topics, including her new book Animal Lessons: Discovering Your Spiritual Connection with Animals. Danielle, a gifted intuitive and animal communicator, talks with me about how animals are really here to teach us about life, even in ways we may not recognize.

We discuss examples of animal lessons from Danielle’s book including mirroring and modeling and what each of these aspects are here to teach us. We talk about the passing of my beloved dog, Libby, how Danielle was there for us during that difficult time, and how sometimes the biggest lessons we learn from our pets is through their deaths.

Give us your feedback on this latest episode. And if you’ve read my new book The Magic Mala, I would love if you posted a review on Amazon for others to read (link below). As always, all photos on video are courtesy of my wife, Melissa. See you again soon, Bob Olson –

    What about Polar Bears who kill unsuspecting people up in Northern Canada. If that’s helping people then I will have no part of her afterlife. I think that this lady is taking the animals abilities way beyond what they are. I also am one of these people who wants nothing to do with this kind of world ever again. I will not be controlled by a higher self, either. I want the choice to not even exist if heaven is not exactly the way I want it. I am dead serious about this. I do not expect you to post this. But feel free to email me. I have been reading all these different things since I was a kid in 1970.

    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Ed,

      Danielle doesn’t respond to this page, but you can contact her about the polar bear question on her website at

      If you’ve been reading about these things since 1970, I’m sure you know we have free will both as humans and as spirits, so all these concerns are not necessary. I think you misunderstood the interview, because it was never said that anyone is “controlled” by their higher self–the two are one in the same, and we always have the choice to listen to our higher wisdom or not (again we have free will). That said, I love your pun in being “dead serious” about wanting the choice to go into heaven. That was great. Thanks for your comment.

    What a timely episode, Thank you as usual I can always Depend on AfterLife TV to bring information that heals & creates Understanding! This Episode was so wonderful. I do believe Animals have souls & Dogs get it, they get it all, its the humans that mess up before they do. We recently had to experience something so difficult & would love to know if this particular Puppy knows & accepts why we did what we did #Heartbroken but happy with our decision. We miss him sooo much OXOX Thank you Danielle!

    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Ornella,

      I’m sure the puppy knows and accepts what was the right thing to do for you and your family. Sometimes animals are in our lives only temporarily to teach us lessons before they move on to another person or family to teach them. Be at peace and know that this puppy is happy living its life with a new family–teaching them the lessons they need to learn.

    Dear Bob,

    I enjoyed ” Magic Mala” so very much! You put metaphysics in such a wonderfully entertaining and understandable manner. Thank you for this amazing offering which I think mirrors your experience.
    Thank you for all you are and all you do!


    • Bob Olson says:

      This is a most amazing book! If you are looking for a way to manifest your dreams….this is the book for you! It is delightful non-fiction that incorporates all the major concepts of metaphysics in an easily understood and entertaining way. I now use my mala daily and I am conscious of my focus and my intentions. Thank you Bob.

    Loved this! My toy poodle, Cassie, was dying last year. An animal communicator told me of her heart problems, plus a couple more things that were old age related. On October 4, I made the decision that I would be saying goodbye within a few weeks. Several hours later, 5 a.m. on October 5, I had a heart attack. Long story short, I am positive that Cassie was mirroring my stress and heart symptoms. When I came home from the hospital, she lay on top of my chest, and we both slept a long time. That was a big healing for both of us. Here it is eight months later, and she is not having any heart problems, I am well also. I love my best friend.

    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Deb,

      What a perfect example of mirroring, and what an amazing story. I’m happy to hear you’re healing, and Cassie is doing well, too. Thank you for sharing this with us. Blessings to you and Cassie.

    Hi Bob
    My brother and my sister-in-law had a cat named Squeaky.Squeaky had her own room in the house.When Squeaky died they closed the door to her room for awhile.One day my brother opened the door and there was Squeaky, bright as day.She started to move and then faded.Acouple of weeks later my sister-in-law opened the door and there was Squeaky. She moved and then faded.My brother never told my sister-in-law that he saw their cat because he thought she would think he was crazy.

  6. Henry Piper says:

    Do we get to be with our pets in the afterlife when they cross over before we do. Will we see them again? I would also like to relate an experience I had with our dog. I got diagnosed with cancer. Our dog had been rather independent before that, but when I came home from the hospital after having my surgery he did not leave my side for the entire time I was healing. Once I was better he went back to being the independent character he was before. I’ll never forget that.

    • Bob Olson says:

      Hi Henry,

      Thanks for sharing that story. I’ve heard many stories similar to that. They show us the amazing depth and awareness that our pets have, which many people don’t believe. Yes, we get to be with our pets in the afterlife. They are often one of the first to greet us home after we cross over.
