Purpose of this Blog

I'm an investigator with Inspired Ghost Tracking and a developing medium. Inspired uses scientific equipment to find proof of ghosts or spirits. Since I was a child I could receive messages from ghosts or spirits (who have crossed over). I wrote the BOOKS: "Pets and the Afterlife," "Ghosts and Spirits" and "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead" to teach others how Ghosts and Spirits communicate and to give hope about the afterlife. I also provide some scientific explanations about how they do it. I'm not a medium who makes appointments - I'm not as well-developed in my abilities as learned mediums. I'm more of a "medium rare." I just hope you find comfort in these explanations based on my experiences.

Q&A: Pet ashes and energy

Here's an email and observation that I received from someone who has their dog's ashes. They
experienced how ashes can connect to the energy of spirit.


I got my dog's ashes back today. I also selected a necklace with a heart and some of her cremains were placed inside the locket. I put it on and placed my left palm over the locket and pressed it close to my heart. For two seconds and only two seconds, I felt a soft electrical type of charge. I was shocked and immediately felt peace. 
  I could not believe what I felt so I tried it again and again but there was no other feeling. It was a one time occurrence and I am still in a state of peace and happiness. I believe it was her spirit that was now resting with me on my heart.

     What a wonderful tribute to her to keep some of her ashes in a locket- and a great sign from her that she's still with you! When we pass the energy within our physical bodies couple with our memories and personalities and we make a choice to stay Earth-bound as a ghost or cross over into the light/heaven/Valhalla, etc. as a spirit. Energy is the key here and love is positive emotional energy that binds us together with those we love (whether pet or person).
  Sometimes ashes can hold some residual energies.  The energy can be physically sensed some times, and it appears that your girl made it happen for you. Your emotional energy (love) helped "re-energize" the residual energy in your dog's ashes, so you felt a spark.
  Take comfort in knowing she's still with you in spirit.

In the News: 'Ghost of Henry VIII's wife' caught on camera - can you spot it?

 In 2017, I'll be publishing another book- that one about my experiences with ghosts I've met in the British Isles, which includes one of Henry VIII's wives, Katherine. In this new article from the UK Mirror, a bus driver caught her image on camera!

'Ghost of Henry VIII's wife' caught on camera - can you spot it?

Trevor Tye, 45, swears that nobody has tampered with the photo he took after driving a coach load of tourists to Hampton Court Palace

Mercury Press Coach driver Trevor Tye caught what could be the ghost of one of Henry VIII’s wives on camera while taking pictures at Hampton Court Palace
Spooky: Coach driver Trevor Tye says this could be the ghost of one of Henry VIII’s wives
A coach driver snapped what he believes could be the ghost of one of Henry VIII's wives during a visit to Hampton Court Palace.
Trevor Tye, 45, had driven a coach-load of tourists to the royal palace but ventured in to get pictures himself while he was waiting.
It was only after returning home after taking pictures of the beautiful marble staircase in the Palace's public entrance, that he spotted what appears to be the figure of a young woman stood eerily watching down.
Henry VIII's fifth wife Catherine Howard was imprisoned at Hampton Court in 1541 before she was beheaded at the age of 21 and her ghost has been said to still haunt the palace.

Spotted: The picture taken by coach driver Trevor Tye
Trevor claims he sent the picture to the palace, who informed him a security guard had spotted the ghost of a young woman or girl in the same spot on more than one occasion.
Trevor, from York, said: "I didn't even realise I had caught anything unusual until I got home and a friend looked at some of my pictures and said, who is that girl?"

Snapped: The pictures were taken at Hampton Court Palace
"I couldn't believe it as the room was completely empty when I took the picture so I know that there is no way it is someone in the shot," he continued.
"I have had the picture examined by experts and everyone has said the picture has not been tampered with at all, so for me the only explanation is that it is a ghost."

Keen: Trevor has been hunting ghosts for years
Trevor said: "It is most definitely one of the best examples of a ghost being caught on camera and I think this is especially true since the security guard was able to confirm that he has seen the same figure too.
"I was very careful when taking the picture to ensure no one was in the room - the last thing I wanted was someone ruining my shot.
"Unfortunately the vast majority of ghost pictures you see are faked so I am really pleased to have caught something like this."

It is said she is usually seen in a white gown, much like the one in Trevor's picture, while Henry VIII's third wife Jane Seymour is also said to haunt the palace after dying there in 1537.
Trevor said: "I don't know who the ghost is, but it is either a young woman or perhaps a girl of maybe 16 or 17. It is hard to make out the age of her clothing but it doesn't look modern.
"It looks like she is looking down and reading something on a stand in front of her.
"I am not scared by the picture and would happily go back to Hampton Court, but I doubt I'll capture anything quite like this again."
Regal: Hampton Court Palace is in Richmond Upon Thames
The palace's website lists both Catherine Howard and Jane Seymour as ghosts who might haunt Hampton Court, along with Sibell Penn, the Lady in Grey, and a 'Skeletor' figure caught on CCTV in 2003.
Hampton Court's website states: "Hampton Court Palace, with its 500 years of history, has seen many dramatic royal events from the death of Henry VIII's third wife, Jane Seymour, to the condemnation and house arrest of his fifth, Catherine Howard, for adultery.
"Over the centuries, staff, visitors, workmen and residents have experienced strange phenomena for which there is often no practical explanation."

Doing final edits on "Pets and the Afterlife 2"

   The proof copies of my fourth book arrived this week. It's called "Pets and the Afterlife 2." Since the first volume (published almost 2 years ago) has made such an impact and so many people have emailed me since about the loss of their pets, I wrote a second book to help people understand what happens after our pets pass, how they communicate with us and how they're always connected to us. 
  This weekend I will be going through the book to make little format edits to ensure it's ready for print. I hope to have it published by the end of February. 
  A huge thanks to my friend Hannah Kim, who agreed to do the original artwork for the cover of the book of a dog and cat "looking into the light."  

ABOUT THE BOOK:  Pets and the Afterlife 2 was written to help grieving pet parents understand how pets in the afterlife share signs from the afterlife.
  The author is a medium, paranormal investigator, pet parent and a scientist. He explains the science of energy, what happens when pets pass, and the intelligence of pets.
  Learn the difference between a ghost and spirit, and the types of signs our pets can give us from the other side.  Read amazing messages that the author received and fantastic personal experiences shared by others to help the reader better understand the many ways spirit pets can communicate.
