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.

Another Audible and Physical Sign from Dog's Spirit!



Over the holidays, I received this email from my friend Katharine who lives across the country. She conveys an amazing
Murphy with a smile
sign from her English Setter who had passed before Christmas.

I just had to tell you a really neat story. I lost my English setter Murphy two days before Christmas this year and was feeling like the house is rather empty and wishing she could let me know how she is. Some friends were over yesterday evening and I heard an ornament fall off the tree. I looked over there and an English setter ornament had fallen off the tree and I felt like Murphy was saying hi to me!

My response: Katharine- What a perfect sign from Murphy. I'm so sorry to hear about Murphy's passing. I'm grateful that she knew enough to send you an audible and physical sign with a picture to help comfort you and let you know she's around. Rob  

Katharine wrote: It was such a special sign from my Murphy and I am so glad I didn't miss it
That same night, my friends and I continued on out to eat. One of the specials was à la orange which was husbands my favorite dish, so of course I believe that was a sign that he was telling me that Murphy was with him and saying hi.

The timing of Katharine's late husband's favorite dinner with the dropping of the ornament was even more of a connection. It was a confirmation that Murphy is indeed with his dad.

Things come in 3s - The passing of 3 pets (and a special rescue dog story)

On Tuesday, February 17, we received word that three pets passed. Things also seem to happen in threes, and this day
brought very sad news about precious cats and a dog. You may notice in your own life that when people or pets pass, you usually hear about three of them within a short period of time. Why that happens is a mystery known only to spirit.
  On Feb. 17, however, I found out that two friends lost their cats, and one of the dog rescue folks we worked with lost a senior dog she recently adopted. It was a heartbreaking night and a reminder how special cats and dogs are in our lives.
 
KARIN'S CAT 
   Our friend Karin told me that her cat got out and hadn't come back after a month. I told her that  I feared her cat had passed in the woods and she also thought the same.Karin happened to pick Feb. 17 to send me the message about her cat, and two other messages followed soon after.

MERLIN THE BLACK CAT
    Our friends Cristina and Will said goodbye to the beautiful black cat Merlin. Merlin was born in November 1997 and passed on February 17, 2015. Cristina said "He was my sweet little guy. We've been together a long time."

PAPPY THE SENIOR DACHSHUND
Pappy the Senior Dachshund
   In January, our friend Donna G, coordinator for Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue received an email from Kim L. of a Texas Dachshund rescue. Donna shared the email with us about a dog in Texas in need of a foster home. Despite being in Maryland and far away, rescues transport dogs anywhere in the U.S to find them good foster or forever homes - which is why we were contacted by Kim.
   Kim said he is a senior, red, smooth 15 pound dachshund that was turned into the Montgomery County Animal Shelter in Conroe, Texas. The shelter simply called him "ID# A 248535."  
   Kim named this little guy "Pappy." It turned out that Pappy was also mostly blind (he could see light and shadows as it turned out). But clearly he was a senior dog, and some heartless, cruel person dumped him near the end of his life.
   After checking with Donna and with us, Kim decided to foster little Pappy herself. She wanted to give this little guy the best part of his life. She did.
  On February 17, I received the following email from Kim:   Pappy the old male doxie we talked about had to be put down yesterday. He could no longer get up and was going to the bathroom on himself.  I just wanted to let you know.
  I read that email and cried. I never got to meet Pappy, but through the rescue I got to know him. In just a month of being abandoned on the street in his old age, he passed. We're so grateful to Kim for taking him in and caring for him in the last month of his life when he needed love more than ever.

Q&A: Do "Demons" Truly Exist?

Over the next 2 weeks, every Tuesday, I'll be featuring a question that I received via email, and my response. 
 
 3. Do "demons" truly exist?  Yes, but they're not really "demons." I believe they are life forms from other planets (with over 1,000 exoplanets we've found so far, some are bound to support life). When they die, their energies also go through the universe as our spirits do. When alien entities come to earth they are likely hostile because they are afraid of us- so like a cornered wild animal, their first instinct is to strike at living people.

New Sign from My Dog Buzz's Spirit - 10 years this month

The 1996 Nickel
    On this date ten years ago,  my first dog, Buzz Wyatt was struck and killed by a car. in front of me as I was walking him
and his leash opened.  He was less than one year old.You never get over that, but you do get signs from your pets. Buzz became the world's best canine communicator. In fact, he came to me so many ways that me made me aware of just how many ways a dog or cat could communicate from the other side. From doppelgangers to moving objects, from a
Buzz Wyatt
bark in the house to the sound of nails on the floor. Songs on the radio at times when I'm thinking of him or coins, butterflies or other things in nature.
   I wrote about all of those things and more in my latest book called "Pets and the Afterlife." The book also contains chapters from three other mediums with their canine spirit communicators.

   Spirits come around on birthdays, anniversaries and holidays to let us know they're still around us. Dogs and cats are no different from spirit people. They all acknowledge those events with us. So, this year, I got a sign from Buzz with help from a human spirit of a friend named Ed (who passed in 1996).

  On the night of February 11th,  I asked Buzz Wyatt to send me a sign that he's around, and I also asked Ed's spirit to let me know that Buzz is with him (he always wanted a dog in life and never adopted one). So, on February 12, I got the answer.

Ed sent the nickel
  At lunchtime I drove to the post office to mail a package and parked next to a curb. I got out of my truck and looked down and around (to make sure I wasn't too close to the curb) and there was nothing there. I mailed the package, and came back to the truck. As I was walking to the driver's side door, right next to it was a shiny nickel. When I saw it, I said in my head "Hello Edward!"

BTW- Spirits love to use coins to send messages they're around- and check the year, because if it means something to you or them- you'll have a better idea of who sent it. I didn't see the year until picked it up. It was dated 1996. 1996 was the year my friend Ed passed.  It was from Ed, and I heard him in my head say that "I've got my other dog." Our dog Sprite passed on July 8, 2013, and Ed let us know he was with him at that time. Now, Ed confirmed that Buzz was there with him, too - and it's the anniversary  month of Buzz's passing.

 I was looking for a sign and I got it - from Ed and Buzz. .

Watch for signs from your pets and people. They send them. We just have to be open-minded and pay attention.

Spirit Signs: A Yorkie's Coin and Color



In December of 2013, I received the following email from a pet parent of a Yorkie who passed. She inquired about some signs. Here are the emails:
 
Cody the adorable little Yorkie



Dec. 31, 2014 Hi, my Yorkie Cody passed on the 23rd of this month. Of course I'm traumatized and I've been in tears every day. I had a feeling he was telling me to go on with my life and he wanted me to paint my bedroom gray, which I did a few days ago. 
    What was strange was I found a nickel with his date of birth while I was cleaning and painting under the armoire that was next to his bed. Also I had cleaned under the armoire a few days prior because I was compulsively cleaning to deal with his death. Anyways, I only looked at the date of the coin because I had read in your book that coins can be messages from spirits. Thanks.


My Response Dec 31st, 4:37pm
Hi Cathy- Thank you for sharing that story with me. Spirits do influence to think of things- and painting the room gray was likely influenced by Cody. Since dogs see many colors like red and brown in shades of gray, that would make sense. It would be the color that Cody would likely see! - In addition, finding the coin with the date that matched his birth year was indeed a confirmation that he wanted to let you know he comes around from time to time, and is safely on the other side! What wonderful signs! BTW- I would love to share your story on my blog, so that others can recognize signs from their pets, if you would allow me to do so. -   
     And, if so, please send me a photo of Cody, so I can include it. What a powerful connection you have with him. - Just know that he'll be there from time to time, but he finally got his message through that he's okay, so please take comfort in that. Sincerely, Rob Gutro

Cathy's Reply  Dec 31st, 4:53pm

Cody's nickel
Hi, Rob, yes of course you can share Cody's coin story. Also I didn't realize that dogs saw colors in shades of gray. I felt like painting my room gray before Cody passed on the 23rd when I knew in my heart he was going to pass soon. Also, I thought it odd that I wanted to paint our bedroom gray because I love bright colors. Most of our house on the inside is purple. The kitchen is deep red, and I had our extra bedroom painted so yellow it's like the sun is always shinning in there. The picture I'm sending you is on the day I had Cody euthanized. I know you understand the pain of losing your baby. Thank you for getting back to me.

     Here's a picture of Cody's nickel. I really have no idea how it got under the armoire or how I missed it when I cleaned under there when I cleaned the first time after his death and before I painted our room. There was nothing else under there except dust balls.

     The compulsion to paint my bedroom gray was so strong too after his death. I kept begging my husband until he relented. We painted it only six days after Cody passed.

My Reply:  Jan 1st, 7:06pm
Hi Cathy- Cody is really beautiful. That beauty continues on the other side, too. As for the grey, I've read about the colors that dogs can see- and Yellow and Blue are the two main colors a dog can see. All of the other colors appear to them as shades of gray.
- Thanks for allowing me to share Cody's story with others.  It will bring others hope and encouragement to look for signs from their dogs and cats. Wishing you and your family a happy new year (especially knowing that Cody is still around). Rob

Q&A: What's the Difference Between Residual Energy and a True Haunting?

Over the next 5 weeks, every Tuesday, I'll be featuring a question that I received via email, and my response. 
 
2. What's the difference between "residual energy" and a "true haunting"?
Residual hauntings are like an emotional thumbprint. It leaves an energy that shows a past emotional event happening over and over, whether it be a good one or bad one. A true haunting is actually a ghost with a consciousness that can interact with people- like a living person in energy form.

Signs from the Heart- From the Spirit of Jacob the Sheltie

The following email came to me and has been reprinted with permission, to help other grieving pet owners understand how their dogs (and cats) can communicate from the other side.  I thought it PERFECT for a Valentine's Day posting -because Jacob the Sheltie was and still is a huge part of his mom and dad's hearts. - Rob


Sir Jacob of Penn's Wood March 11, 2008 - January 22, 2015


Dear Rob-
I am not sure where I stand in terms of believing what you wrote. Normally I would be very skeptical. In any event, I wanted to share our current situation.

Last week, 1/22/2015, we lost our Jacob. Jacob was a Sheltie and he died about 2 months before his seventh birthday. Jacob had lymphoma and despite every effort including chemo he lost his fight.

Jacob was my "baby". While I always liked dogs, they were pets. Jacob was the first animal that I completely gave my heart to. He came at a time in my life when I did not have much to live for. He gave my live meaning.

Jacob was born on an Amish farm in Lancaster county. He did not care much for horses and buggies and he would bark like mad when ever we passed one on the street. It was a game my wife and I would play with him pointing out all the buggies.

When Jacob passed I stopped eating and drinking. I went for three days with noting to eat or drink. The average human can survive three to five days without drinking. This was going to be my exit. Near the close of the third day my wife and I were sitting at a convenience store near our home getting gas. I have to say we live some distance from Lancaster and do not see horses and buggies where we live. After talking I decided to drink something. We had a bottle of water in the car that was for Jacob when we went somewhere. I drank some of the water ending my attempt at a passive suicide. At that moment a truck pulling a trailer passed in front of us. On this trailer was an Amish buggy. As I said, we just don't see buggies where we live. My wife and I broke down at first but then we considered the possibility that it was a message from Jacob. (All this happened before getting your book.)

Last night my wife was in a doctor's office waiting reading your book. A song came on "I can't Live without you." My wife, having just read where you talk about music, said "OK Jacob if that's you and if you're OK and someone is there taking care of you please send me a sign." The song ended and was followed by the song "The wind beneath my Wings." This is perhaps my wife's favorite song and holds very special significance for her since her father passed many years ago as it was his favorite song. The interpretation of this could mean that Jacob is OK and her dad is there with him.

Again, I don't know if I believe or not, but I have to say that I would like to. Believing would make life just a little more bearable.  Bill D.


*****************************
My response to Bill: Those were amazing signs from him. Spirits lead us to places where we will see things that we'll associate with them, just as he enabled you to see the buggy (that drove him crazy). Perfect sign. 
   The musical signs are also great messages. The first song was directed to you, and the second song was the answer to your wife's request to prove the messages were from him. He's very strong, and will be around you from time to time.
  He doesn't want you to grieve, but instead wants you to know how much he appreciated you both saving him from a life of hardship on the Amish farm. He knows how much you did for him to try and heal him, and for that he is eternally grateful.
  You gave him more love in a day than he experienced in his life before you adopted him. That love binds you all together forever. I know the feeling with our two dogs who have passed and provide us signs from time to time. 

With deepest sympathy, Rob
