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 "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: Why do only some pets come through or send signs while other don’t?

Recently I received this great question via email: 
       Q:  Why do only some pets come through or send signs while other don’t? What would you tell someone who is desperately trying to reach their pet on the other side to no avail?

A: Pets, like people, only come through with signs when they have something to tell us. People and pets usually return around the times of birthdays, anniversaries or holidays, too -either theirs or ours. They all give us signs - we just miss them, which is why I wrote the books to educate people on how to see them! 
Grief blocks out signs. When we are grieving and desperate to see something, we tend to dismiss things for something more "concrete." Spirits and ghosts use subtle signs because it takes a lot of energy for them to communicate. If people are sick with grief, that's when they should rely on a medium. They should also take comfort in knowing spirits come around from time to time, they're not always with us.

 PETS AND THE AFTERLIFE by Rob Gutro: The loss of a pet is like the loss of a child to pet owners. The love we share with our pets never dies, and in a new book called "Pets and the Afterlife" by Rob Gutro, the author provides proof that our pets do communicate with us from the other side.    Available in paperback and E-book, on Amazon.com and other outlets at: To order paperback of Kindle- click here

My Encounters With Some Ghosts of Gettysburg

woman in period dress
Gettysburg National Cemetery
Over the summer I visited Gettysburg, Pennsylvania to experience the history of the civil war. In addition to the history there, there's a lot of residual energy left behind by the extreme emotions during the battles. There are also some intelligent haunts - that is, ghosts that can interact with you and answer questions.


Gettysburg National Park is managed by the National Park Service and has a great museum with countless artifacts found on the battlefields, and monuments erected to every regiment of Union and Confederate soldiers placed over miles of countryside. For the National Park Service Website (hours, info, tours, directions): http://www.nps.gov/gett/index.htm

The location of the Gettysburg Address
ABOUT THE BATTLE:    The Battle of Gettysburg was a turning point in the Civil War, the Union victory that ended General Robert E. Lee's second and most ambitious invasion of the North. Often referred to as the "High Water Mark of the Rebellion", Gettysburg was the Civil War's bloodiest battle. The  Battle of Gettysburg was fought July 1–3, 1863, in and around the town of Gettysburg, by Union and Confederate forces during the American Civil War. The battle involved the largest number of casualties of the entire war and is often described as the war's turning point. Union Maj. Gen. George Meade's Army of the Potomac defeated attacks by Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, ending Lee's attempt to invade the North.

CASUALTIES:   Between 46,000 and 51,000 soldiers from both armies were casualties in the three-day battle.

A Confederate Soldier Walks the Grounds
GETTYSBURG NATIONAL CEMETERY  -  On November 19, President Lincoln used the dedication ceremony for the Gettysburg National Cemetery to honor the fallen Union soldiers and redefine the purpose of the war in his historic Gettysburg Address.  We toured the cemetery and saw the spot where President Lincoln gave the famous address.

GHOSTLY ENCOUNTERS:   As a Medium, I sense energy from people who passed and can communicate with them (if they're intelligent hauntings). During my recent trip to Gettysburg, PA- the emotional energy left behind from the soldiers going into battle was overwhelming and gave me a whopping headache. The battlefields are said to be some of the most haunted areas in the state.  
Many unidentified bodies buried here
   I developed a massive headache as we approached the town. It was like standing in a stadium packed with people who were all shouting at me. It was overwhelming. The anxiety, fear, nervousness, pride, aggressiveness, passion - all of these feelings from soldiers who battled there, and died on the battlefield linger. Some of it was residual, like an emotional thumbprint. There were actual ghosts there, though- intelligent ghosts of men that still lingered.

I interviewed Author Roberta Grimes about her book "The Fun of Staying in Touch"

Roberta Grimes is currently on a book tour, promoting her book called "The Fun of Staying in Touch" and I had a chance to interview her about it and how it came to be. Here are the questions and answers. 
You can find her book on AMAZON.COM at: http://www.amazon.com/The-Fun-Staying-Touch-Contact-ebook/dp/B00N9IYIDA 
Her website is: http://robertagrimes.com/ 
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Roberta-Grimes/479529392154968

1) I'd like to give readers an idea of the person that is Roberta Grimes. 
Tell me about yourself, where you grew up, what you wanted to do for a career...

I grew up in Massachusetts, always expecting to be an attorney, and my career has been in advising small businesses. Nevertheless, when I was eight and again at the age of twenty I had extraordinary experiences of light which started me on a search to understand reality. It has been a consuming hobby! While I have had a conventional life as a wife (of 42 years), a mother (of 3), and a grandmother (of 5), I have spent my every spare minute researching, writing, and speaking about the glorious greater reality of which this universe is a part, and the beyond-wonderful certainty that our minds are eternal.

2) When did you learn that you had the ability to get messages from those who passed?
I'm not a medium, but rather I am a serious researcher - I have spent decades reading nearly 200 years of abundant and consistent communications from the dead, most of them received before 1950. When combined with quantum physics and consciousness research, they tell a compelling and amazingly consistent story!

3) Do you work as a medium full-time? or is that a part-time thing?
I still practice business law, but I spend much of my time writing and speaking about what I have learned about death and the afterlife.
4) What inspired you to write the book?
I have been surprised to find that most people have no idea about the signs that the dead send to us of their survival, and no notion of how much good work is being done in the area of afterlife communication! The Fun of Staying in Touch is an easily read and highly accessible summary of both areas, and it includes an annotated bibliography so people can discover these truths for themselves.
5) Tell me about the book. What kinds of things would someone find in it?
The Fun of Staying in Touch includes a section on signs from the dead, and a section on how we can initiate communication, including what seems to be coming next. It is complete, but at the same time it's a quick and enjoyable read.
6) What inspired you to write the book? Is it your first?
My first book on this subject was The Fun of Dying - Find Out What Really Happens Next, which was first published in 2010 and has lately been reissued. For me then to talk about communication in a second book was a natural segue. My third book, completing this trilogy, will be The Fun of Growing Forever, due in 2017. I also have published five novels, the first two in 1992 and 1993 and then a trilogy that starts a seven-novel saga.
7) Have you received messages from pets as well as people?
I'm not a medium, but The Fun of Staying in Touch talks about some wonderful communications from pets, including an extraordinary communication dream that I received from my horse after his death.
8) What different types of personalities do you write about from the other side?
The communications that I have read include an astonishing range of people. We remain ourselves after we have transitioned - just the act of dying doesn't bring enlightenment - and I can tell some amusing (and some sad) stories of these people's efforts to adjust to their new situations.
9) I understand that you studied religion or religions. Does that play into your book or is it more spiritual?
I did major in religion in college, but my research is entirely fact-based. The problem with religions is that, while they often express aspects of what appears to be the truth, they have devolved into belief-systems. I don't want to believe; I want to KNOW!
 10) Do you combine science with spiritualism to explain communications and the afterlife?
No - my work is entirely scientific. In fact, this is the grounding for a whole new wave of physics that will become the prevailing mode of physics by the end of this century; I call it "the third wave."
 11) Do you provide messages to people on a daily basis or offer a service for readings?
I don't do readings, but I do communicate often with people by email and even by phone who are undertaking their own research, and I speak occasionally at various venues. I love to help people on their voyages of discovery!
 12) What do you hope that people will come away with after reading your book?
I hope to inform and enlighten the curious, comfort the grieving, and start as many people as possible on the same voyage of discovery that has been my own really wonderful hobby!

Your Pets in Spirit Will Visit from time to time

A close friend of mine just said goodbye to her 19 year old Siamese cat, Simba. I told her that our pets come back in spirit from time to time and give us messages they are still around.
   Listen at night when it's quiet, acknowledge small touches, or little cat feet on your bed at night. Pets send us signs in so many ways. Just know the love we share with them is energy that binds us together between the living and the afterlife.

To learn about how Pets communicate from the other side, check out my book:  PETS AND THE AFTERLIFE by Rob Gutro: The loss of a pet is like the loss of a child to pet owners. The love we share with our pets never dies, and in a new book called "Pets and the Afterlife" by Rob Gutro, the author provides proof that our pets do communicate with us from the other side.    Available in paperback and E-book, on Amazon.com and other outlets at: To order paperback of Kindle- click here

Signs from the Spirit of Dali the Lhasa Apso!

Dali the Lhasa Apso

Following is a wonderful email I received from a woman named Dorothy, who shared experiences of how her beloved Lhasa Apso, Dali gave her signs that she was still with her mom. 
    Spirits of dogs and cats, like people, have the ability to leads us to things in nature to show us that they're around us. Dali led her mom to see the rainbow, and manipulated the one wind chime to send a message that she's still around Dorothy from time to time. Spirits also can use things in nature like birds, butterflies, feathers, flowers, dragonflies, etc. to send us messages of their presence. They can also move things as you'll read about below, regarding to a windchime.
   Dorothy has given me permission to share her experiences and provided a great photo of Dali, so that Dali's messages and memory will live on, and comfort others - to help them know that their pets are also with them from time to time. - Rob 

Dear Rob  -
I just finished reading your book and it gave me a lot of comfort to know my pet is still here.  I lost my Lhasa Apso (12 1/2) on Sept 27, 2014.  I am older and she is my whole life, my soulmate, my best friend.  She got sick quickly and went to the vet on a Friday (who said she would be fine, gave prescription) and she died the next morning very quickly and unexpectedly.  I am devastated.

The next morning I  was trying to cope and went outside the front door and a beautiful rainbow was there.  It had not been raining, but the rainbow was gorgeous and directly over my house.  I cried and cried and immediately went inside and googled "rainbows."  I was directed to the Rainbows Bridge website (had never heard of it) and it became my outlet over the last month.  I related the rainbow story and someone suggested your book.  I immediately ordered it and read it, great insight. 

I know the rainbow was a gift from my Dali.  A few days later one of my windchimes sang when I was outside.  NO wind and only one of them.  I looked up and felt my Dali.  I have never been one to believe in all of these things, but I know now they are real.
Dali sent a rainbow
Gives me great comfort to know I will again be with my beloved Dali.  Two weeks ago we had a tornado in town.  I was with a group of people who were "herded" to a safer place inside a store.  Everyone was upset, very worried, on cells, etc.  For some reason I was extremely calm, more so than ever before.  I knew I would be okay, Dali was there.  Or maybe it was time to go to where she was?  I will never fear death now and look forward to the light.  All of this has changed me totally into a different person.  I see the good now....thank you Dali.

And I just wanted to thank you for your book, it helped me more than you know.

God Bless
