Remembering My Friend Richard: One of his Paranormal Stories

my friend Richard passed this year
   My friend Richard passed away this year and he was (and is in spirit now) such a wonderful guy.  Richard would always encourage me, make me laugh and smile -either by phone, email or letter (we worked together and emailed which is how we met a coast away).
  Richard leaves behind his wonderful wife, two grown sons and a dog we used to talk about. Although Richard and his family lived on the other coast, we would always write letters and post-cards (we liked the old fashioned communication).
   One of the things he and I had in common was a fascination with the paranormal. In fact, he has a story in my first book "Ghosts and Spirits." His mom, Betty also has several stories of her paranormal encounters in the same book.
  I know his spirit is around his family, and his life gave "life" to so many with his smile and wonderful personality during his time on Earth. 
  Below is a story that he told me on Friday, March 5, 2010, that I published on this blog, so in his memory, I'm sharing it again.

A Presence Attached to Hitler's Car in a Museum

EDITOR'S NOTE: The following story was shared with me, and it's a prime example of how energies can attach themselves to objects. I've run into this before with entities attached to a mattress or a piece of furniture. In this case, it's a car!
The Lyon Air Museum is located on the west side of John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California. It was founded by Major General William Lyon. In the museum you'll find authentic aircraft, rare vehicles and related memorabilia, with emphasis on World War II.
The museum has a Mercedes that used to belong to Adolph Hitler. It was likely one of his staff cars. The interior in the front of the car is the original leather interior, also the hand hold on top of the window of the car which Hitler gripped when saluting to the crowd is intact. No one is allowed inside the car but Gen. Lyon's driver stood in the car, grabbed the hand hold as to imitate Hitler's pose which is portrayed in a poster in front of the car. He claims a strange feeling overtook him that he couldn't explain. He got out of the car very quickly.

A Hauntingly Good Holiday Party with Inspired Ghost Tracking

LtoR: Ronda, Tom, Margaret, Rob
      I belong to the Inspired Ghost Tracking paranormal group to use my gifts to help families who deal with Earthbound ghosts haunting their houses, but this weekend, attended the group's Holiday party. It's always nice to partake in a gathering where you have something in common with everyone (how often can you say that?).
   We participated in a gift swap where if  someone didn't like their gift, they had an opportunity to swap it with someone whose gift they did like. 
   The gifts ran the gamut from a book on ghosts, paranormal tools like flashlights and batteries to wine, gift cards, puzzles, and food.  
Nancy, Pat, Judy, Renee
   We wrapped up gift cards to a Supermarket, because, well, they're practical, and everyone shops for groceries!  I got a gift bag with a Dunkin' gift card, a delicious brownie, and a coupon at Kohls (where we shop) so that was perfect- Coffee, sugar, and shopping. 
Margaret, Ronda, Colleen, Nancy
   Tom got a bottle of wine and he was all excited about that... until our friend Dana swapped out her gift and took Tom's wine.    Tom exclaimed "But I like wine!" Everyone laughed.
  Although the gifts are supposed to be gender-neutral, last year, Tom wound up with a pair of ladies' earrings, which he promptly gave someone else..
   The event was fun, though, and spending time with like-minded and caring friends was a great way to mark the holidays.
  SIDE NOTE- If you in the the "Holiday spirit" in a bad way, with a ghost in your house - contact paranormal investigators like Inspired Ghost Tracking of Maryland to help cross them over and make your holidays (and the ghost's) brighter.  Website: https://inspiredghosttracking.webs.com/

Q&A: Do Our Pets Reincarnate? When?

One of the questions I get asked most often from grieving pet parents is if their dog, cat, horse, etc. will be reincarnated quickly. In short, the answer is no, but there's a good reason! 
Here's the question: Rob! So sorry to ask you this... but I’m having some anxiety regarding one thing... Is my dog going to come back to me in my lifetime?! Will or has she reincarnated? Sorry for asking you this question but my heart needs to know... 

My Response:  No need to be anxious! As I wrote in my books "Pets and the Afterlife" our pets wait until we have passed and then meet us when we cross over. Then, once we're all together in the afterlife, we all reincarnate and come back, all connected again in some way. 
   It's the same thing with people who pass. They wait for everyone they knew in the physical to pass away before they reincarnate. So, all of them will be waiting for you in the light, including your pets.
   In the meantime, spirits of both people and pets will be around us for the rest of our physical lives, protecting and guiding us. 

 You can find more answers in my books "Pets and the Afterlife" and "Pets and the Afterlife 2" available on Amazon.com

A Book Review of Pets and the Afterlife (and Pets 2) I Like

Recently I received this nice book review on facebook about my two books:  Pets and the Afterlife and Pets and the Afterlife 2,  by Rob Gutro. A big thank you  to Heidi for the review.

Heidi Lemster Green I have read both of these books. They brought me so much comfort, during the loss of my beautiful Daschund. I would recommend these books, to anyone who has lost a beloved animal.
REQUEST:  Please review my books on Amazon.com, too, as more reviews help people find them more easily.

Looking for a Holiday gift? Comfort Someone Whose Pet or Person Passed

Looking for a Holiday gift to help heal the loss of a pet or person?
If you know someone who has recently lost someone, give them the gift of comfort and hope. I've written 5 books, 3 about people in spirit (and ghosts) and 2 about pets in spirit (and ghosts). The #books teach the reader what signs to look for from the afterlife. Every week I receive emails from people around the world who have read the books and have found a sense of peace and comfort from being able to identify signs from loved ones.
      All are available on Amazon.com in paperback and e-book: #Ghosts and #Spirits, Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead, #Pets and the #Afterlife and Pets and the Afterlife 2 by Rob Gutro
  AND my Newest book: Ghosts of England on a Medium's Vacation!

My note to Skeptics About Getting Signs from Spirits

Recently I received an email from a gentleman who said he was skeptical about whether spirits give signs and if pets communicate from spirit. Here's my response to him, and to those of you still wondering: 
      I understand and appreciate your skepticism. As adults we are taught to think with our logical minds and usually require proof of something- such as a message from a loved one one passed on - whether it be your parents or relatives who passed years ago, or pets. 
     I know that there are a lot of people who try to take advantage of other's grief. I'm not one of those. That's why I've written books to explain what signs to look for from people or pets in spirit, and don't charge anyone for any short email reading I give. - I don't make a living out of my gift- because I'm a meteorologist - a scientist, full time. I just use my abilities to help comfort others in my spare time. 

       In short, yes, you will of course see your pets on the other side. Every living thing has a soul. A soul is memories, personality and knowledge combined with the physical energies within. When we die, our "soul" chooses to stay earthbound as a ghost or cross over into the light or heaven, Valhalla, Elysium or whatever you want to call the other side, and we become a spirit. You and everyone has the ability to communicate with loved ones in spirit. 
        As I have written in my books, dreams are the easiest way for spirit to communicate with us because our logical minds are inactive (asleep). If you've dreamed about loved ones who passed, they're trying to assure you they are fine. 
     - As for your cat who is in failing health, he understands his body isn't responding to him the way he wants. He's likely getting frustrated with himself and will let you know when he is too tired to continue fighting. - I can't read him, because he hasn't passed, but that's what cats and dogs on the other side with cancer have told me. 
     There are many other ways for people and pets to give us signs - from finding coins to erratic behavior of birds, butterflies, insects, etc to seeing someone who resembles them. All of those things I explain in my books to help people understand and comfort them.
