Ep. 116 The Afterlife of Animals with Nicole Strickland | Dealing with Pet Loss and Pet Grief
Hello all you Hollyweirdos
As many of you have heard, we lost our beloved Hollyweird mascot and pet, Mia, unexpectedly. She was one of the most loving animals that we were so lucky to have in our life and we are deeply saddened that we no longer have her here with us. Through the grief and loss of Mia, we decided to process this loss with an episode discussing pet loss, grief, and the afterlife of animals.
On today's episode, we dive into the fascinating topic of the afterlife of animals and explore pet loss and grief with paranormal researcher and author, Nicole Strickland. Strickland is one of the leading West Coast afterlife & paranormal researchers. She’s the founder and director of the well-respected San Diego Paranormal Research Society and California Coordinator of the Ghost Research Society. Nicole is also a consultant to the American Spectral Association.
Nicole holds a B.A. degree in Media Arts / Journalism from the University of Arizona and an M.S. in Educational Counseling from National University. She plans to pursue a PhD in Parapsychology. Nicole has written several books, including Field Guide to Southern California Hauntings, The Haunted Queen of the Seas: The Living Legend of the RMS Queen Mary, Spirited Queen Mary: Her Haunted Legend, RMS Queen Mary: Voices from Her Voyages, San Diego’s Most Haunted: The Historical Legacy and Paranormal Marvels of America’s Finest City, Spirits of Rancho Buena Vista Adobe, Max and Kayli: Two Remarkable Felines Forever Imprinted On My Heart, The Afterlife Chronicles: Exploring the Connection between Life, Death and Beyond (2022) and Women on the Fringe: Groundbreaking Women in the Paranormal with Marie D. Jones and Denise Agnew. (Black Spot Books 2023).
Have you ever wondered what happens to our furry friends once they cross over the rainbow bridge? Well, grab your iced coffee or tea and get ready for a wild ride as we delve into animal ghosts with Strickland. While the concept may seem far-fetched to some, many pet owners believe they have encountered spiritual visitations from their departed companions. Whether it's catching glimpses of them out of the corner of your eye or hearing familiar noises around the house, these experiences can bring immense comfort during times of grief. So let's buckle up for an emotional rollercoaster as we chat about our beloved pets' extraordinary ability to stay by our side even after their physical presence has passed on.
