Tarot Tuesday: Wheel of Fortune Card

Every Tuesday, my friend Joy Andreason provides "Tarot Tuesday" to give you some insight into tarot
cards. Today's card is the Wheel of Fortune Card.

Joy says: There is change in the air! Be open to your life changing for the better! Be thankful for your many blessings and cherish those you love. The only thing that is assured is that nothing ever stays the same.

MEANING OF THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE CARD: (Thanks to biddytarot.com)
Upright: Good luck, karma, life cycles, destiny, a turning point Reversed: Bad luck, resistance to change, breaking cycles

The Wheel of Fortune card shows a giant wheel, with three figures on the outer edges. Four Hebrew letters – YHVH (Yod Heh Vau Heh), the unpronounceable name of God – are inscribed on the wheel’s face. There are also the letters TORA, thought to be a version of the word Torah, meaning ‘law’, or TAROT, or even ROTA (Latin for ‘wheel’). The middle wheel has the alchemical symbols for mercury, sulphur, water and salt – the building blocks of life and the four elements – and represents formative power. On the outer circle is a snake, the Egyptian god Typhon (the god of evil), descending on the left side. The snake also represents the life force plunging into the material world. On the right side rises the Anubis, the Egyptian God of the dead who welcomes souls to the underworld. And on top of the wheel sits the Sphinx, representing knowledge and strength. In the corners of the Wheel of Fortune card are four winged creatures, each associated with the four fixed signs of the Zodiac: the angel is Aquarius, the eagle is Scorpio, the lion is Leo, and the bull is Taurus. Their wings signify stability amidst movement and change, and each holds the Torah, representing wisdom. NOTE: The Tarot card meaning description is based on the Rider Waite cards.

There is a Difference between a Medium and a Psychic

Recently, someone asked me to tell them their future, lottery numbers and if they'll be successful in their job.  I can't tell them that because I'm a medium, not a psychic. I talk to the dead, not connect to energy for people's futures.
   Some mediums will tell you that ALL Mediums are psychics. They're not. Not everyone gets both gifts.Here's how it works:

Psychics can tell people about their future endeavors because they tune into the energy of people or objects. They connect with their energy and feel a person's past, present and future. Psychics rely on their intuition and ability to get information for the person being read.

Mediums talk to people and pets who passed.  It's NOT the same. Although mediums can get a sense of the energy around a person, whether they have good or bad energy (aura), they can't necessarily read energy into their futures. That's exactly how it is with me:  I can talk with people who passed, but I can't tell you your future.

I can tell you what a person or pet wants you to know about themselves or if they've been protecting, guiding or helping you. I can explain how the person or pet feels on the other side. But I can't tell you what is in store for you. That's a psychic.

I never developed the gift of tuning into a person's future. To me, that's a much different gift. Just as some have the gift to know when someone is going to pass away days before they do. I don't have that gift either (to me, that's unsettling).

So, when you ask a medium to tell you the future, not all of them can - because we're not all psychic and mediums. Sometimes, like me, we are one or the other.

The Ghost I Recently Encountered on the Princeton Campus

The part of Campus where I met the ghost
Earlier this spring I took a trip to Princeton, NJ to visit a friend. He toured Tom and I around the campus of Princeton University and it was there I walked into a ghost on the open campus. I also think I may have figured out his identity.

THE GHOST ON CAMPUS! As we were walking near the store on campus, in a big open area, I  suddenly developed my "ghost headache." That's the headache I get in the back left side of my head whenever I'm in the presence of an Earth bound ghost or a spirit (who crossed over).
    Suddenly, an Earth-bound ghost walked right past me. He made me feel as if he were a recent addition to the campus. Someone who recently died but decided to come back to Princeton and spend his afterlife, because he loved the school so much.
   I immediately told Tom that the ghost was a man and he seemed to be in his 60s or 60ish yeard old when he died recently. I also told them that he was a professor at Princeton.

Our friend may have provided the answer to his identity. He said that just days before our visit, Princeton University economics professor Alan Krueger, who served under both Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, died the previous weekend from suicide. He was 58.

His recent death would make sense, because the ghost told me he recently returned to campus (as a ghost). The suicide may explain why he stayed behind, because people who commit suicide sometimes stay behind because they think suicide is a "sin" and they don't deserve to cross over (everyone needs to cross over). So several things here hint at the ghost's identity.

OTHER GHOSTS? There are other ghosts who haunt Princeton's campus. I didn't go in the buildings, and that's usually where they dwell. This ghost, however, was enjoying a walk around the campus when I "bumped" into him!

Reader Reviews: Pets and the Afterlife 1 and 2

One of the greatest pleasures I get from
being a medium and author is that people find comfort in learning how their own pets are around them in spirit. Many people are kind enough to let me know how my books have helped them find comfort. Here are a few new comments.

From Facebook about the Pets and the afterlife books:
Angie Peterson Phillips
This book has helped me so much. It’s a must read for anyone that has lost a beloved pet. Some days are very hard for me after losing my cat Maserati, I always pick up this book and read a random chapter over again and then I can continue on my day. 💓 I purchased my book on amazon for under 10$

Patricia Gasparro
I have both. I highly recommend. They helped me tremendously. I found out about Rob when I lost my dog in jan. :(
Mala Sridhar
These are great books...I’ve read them. It gives immense solace when reading it. I feel I’m well connected to my pet especially writing to Rob.
Leah Woods
Great books!!!!

Your Dad is Around in Spirit on Father's Day

If your dad has passed, as mine did in 2008, then you need to know he's around you today in spirit.
Dad's in spirit remember that this is one of the special days where we honored the things our dads did for us as we grew up.
   My dad inspired me to read by buying me comic books. They also inspired me to draw, and create stories. Today I use all of those abilities, and I think of my dad whenever I do. So if you learned something from your dad and find yourself doing it today, know that he is very much around you, and he's smiling at you, feeling proud.
   The hardest thing about father's day is not having our dads physically here, but they all want you to remember that they are very, very much still a part of your life.

My books will tell you many of the ways that spirits will communicate with us. 
You can read the Amazing story of how MY DAD helped me prove to my family that my dad's spirit was at his own wake and funeral in my book "Ghosts and Spirits" available on Amazon.com in paperback and E-book (under $10).

PetResQ Event: Dog Spirit Nudges Me Back to Podium!

A Mastiff in Spirit Gives a Very Personal Message to his Dad
In this third and final blog about some of the amazing events that happened during the PetResQ fundraising event in
Tenafly, NJ on June 7, you'll read about a dog's spirit that was so strong, that he basically pushed me to go back to the podium and talk about one important point I didn't mention during my lecture. It was all for his dad, too, who was in the room.

Pets and people maintain their personalities when they pass, and if they're protective of someone they love while alive, they maintain that protectiveness from spirit. They also want to ensure that their loved one knows they're around... especially if the person is skeptical about getting messages from spirit.

Before I gave my talk, a 30-year  old man and his mom came over to me to ask about the event. They just happened to be staying in the hotel because they were attending the funeral of someone they knew, and they saw the sign for the rescue event. It turned out that the man, along with his wife, run a dog rescue in Conroe, Texas!  The Rescue is called "A Chance to Bloom."  You'll see information for it below.

His mom told me that she absolutely believes in communications from spirit, however, her son told me he is a skeptic. Well, whenever spirit hears about skeptics they want to convince them. Especially when there's a strong personality in the spirit - and you couldn't get a stronger personality than from a Mastiff!

After my lecture, and sharing quite a few messages from spirit animals, I returned back to the table with my books. The man and his mom came back over to me and started talking when suddenly I heard in my head, "You need to tell them that when a dog passes away, they come back and train a newly adopted dog to have some of the spirit's habits. That's how you know that your dog's spirit is still very much around the house, and is training the new dog!"  I interrupted the man and his mom and said, "I need to go back to the podium! I'm being told that I need to share one more important thing (for someone)."

After I talked about how spirit pets come back and teach a new dog one of their habits, I returned to the Texas rescuer and his mom. The message was for him.

He was clearly moved. He told me that his newly adopted Mastiff, whom never met his Mastiff that passed, was doing some of the same exact quirky things his Mastiff in spirit did. I don't think he's a skeptic anymore... The bottom line here is that Spirits are amazing!

PetResQ Event: A Little Girl's Nudge to me for her Dad

A young child came to me with a message for her dad.
This past weekend I was honored to be the featured guest at a big fundraising dinner event for Pet ResQ of Tenafly, New Jersey. But when I was packing my books for the event, a young spirit was right there with me and made sure that I brought something for her dad. Here's what happened.
   Before I attend a lecture or fundraiser, I always pack a suitcase of books, post cards and other promotional items. I also have put aside several paranormal-related books that I've read and only when a spirit moves me, do I put it in my suitcase.
  Last Friday, I felt a young spirit (couldn't tell if it was a girl or boy) telling me that one of their parents would be in the audience on Saturday and needed to read a certain book in my giveaway pile.   My hand was guided specifically to the book called " My Son and the Afterlife: Conversations from the Other Side  by Elisa Medhus (it came out in 2013). I loved this book and highly recommend it to any parent who has lost a child.
   I asked who this was for, and just heard "you'll get the answer when you ask at the event. There will only be one person there who lost a child. It's for that person."
  I've learned to ask over and over, because when a spirit doesn't want to tell you something, they won't, no matter how many times you ask.
   At the end of the PetResQ fundraising lecture, after I talked about all of the animals in spirit who had walked into the room, I asked who was the person who lost a son or daughter. Only ONE
man raised his hand. He looked surprised. I told him that his child inspired me to bring the book for him, and that he needs to read it.
   He explained that he lost a daughter, who was only 2 years old when she passed. Now he knows that she'll go to any length, or any distance (some 300 miles to get to me) to make sure her dad knows she's very much around.

Tarot Tuesday: Six of Swords

Every Tuesday, my friend Joy Andreason provides "Tarot Tuesday" to give you some insight into tarot
cards. Today's card is the Six of Swords.

Joy says: It may be time to create some distance between you and a challenging emotional situation. You may need to take a time out or go somewhere near water to gather your thoughts and decide on your next step. There may be other people involved who will be affected so take your time.

MEANING OF THE 6 OF SWORDS CARD: (Thanks to biddytarot.com) 
Upright: Transition, change, rite of passage, releasing baggage.
Reversed: Personal transition, resistance to change, unfinished business.

  Tarot Card Meaning  and Description:   
   The Six of Swords shows a woman and a young child being rowed across a body of water towards a nearby land. Her head is covered, suggesting sadness or loss as she moves away from something in her past. Her child nestles in close to her body, looking for safety and comfort as they make this journey together. In the boat stand six swords, suggesting that the woman and child are still carrying memories or baggage from their past into their future.
While the water on the right of the boat is turbulent, the sea ahead is tranquil. This imagery suggests that they are leaving behind a tumultuous situation, bound for a more peaceful and supportive environment.

Pet ResQ Event - Pet Spirits Who Appeared, Bulldog messages!

The poster
This past weekend, I was honored to be the featured guest at a big fundraising dinner event for Pet ResQ of Tenafly, New Jersey. I met a lot of wonderful people who supported the rescue efforts and quite a few pets in spirit showed up! In this blog you'll read about those spirits and one Bulldog who really came through. Here's the story>>>

THE EVENT - On June 7, the event is called "An Evening with Rob Gutro" was a Benefit for PetResQ of New Jersey. It was held at the Clinton Inn Hotel and Event Center,  Tenafly, NJ. It featured a delicious buffet, dessert, coffee/tea, cash bar and I was the guest lecturer. I shared with the audience many ways that our pets communicate from the other side.   - I've been doing fundraising lectures for animal rescues for the last year, and this one was quite special because this time a whole menagerie of dogs and cats came through before I went on to speak.

THE  MANY PET SPIRIT APPEARANCES!  - When people came in, their pets in spirit came with them. In fact, there were so many spirit dogs and cats that I couldn't even get their names.  At the end of my lecture, I read off all of the animals that were there in spirit to let their pet parents know they're around.
   There was a Lhasa Apso, German Shepherd, Black Labrador Retriever and a Bulldog. There were quite a few cats, too. I can't remember them all as I write, but one was grey with white paws, another black and grey, and another orange tabby, to name a few. Everyone seemed to know which was their dog or cat pretty quickly, In fact, several animals belonged to one woman (I can't recall her name). 
A bulldog came through strongly

dinner time!
PetResQ's amazing Founder Doing Introductions
THE BULLDOG -  I do distinctly remember the Bulldog, because he was the most dominant personality. He told me that he passed from respiratory issues. He also said that he's connected to someone in the military. There were other messages but I can't remember them. That's what happens when you channel - you can't remember because you're just repeating what you're hearing. 
Theresa and Emery won the cash prize and donated it to the rescue
  As I read the messages, the woman in the audience for whom the bulldog was connected was deeply moved.

PET RESQ'S MISSION:  Pet ResQ Inc.is a not for profit 501c3 organization dedicated to saving unwanted pets.Most of our rescues are "special needs" whether it being badly abused, older or handicapped.Without Pet ResQ Inc. euthanasia would be their destiny! 
We rescue without prejudice. Many who have no where else to turn. We are their voice  

BASED ON MY 2 AMAZON BOOKS:  "Pets and the Afterlife" and "Pets and the Afterlife 2."
