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,"
"Pets and the Afterlife 2" (just published in 2016) "Ghosts and Spirits" and "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead" to teach others how Ghosts and Spirits communicate
and to give proof of 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.

Signs from Spirits of Buzz and Sprite through a Reader!

Buzz
On July 22, I was emailing with a woman named Lisa about her dog whom passed. She read my book "Pets and
the Afterlife" and told me she saw dogs that looked like my dogs in spirit: Buzz, a Weimaraner and Sprite, a red, smooth, Dachshund!  That's not a coincidence. They were signs from them to let me know they're around us - and here's why:
July 8th was the day that Sprite passed (Anniversary) in 2013
July 29th, 2004 was Buzz's birthday! 

Spirits always come around on Birthdays, anniversaries or holidays, and they can give messages to you, or to someone they know will be talking with you - as they did with Lisa!

From the Email- Lisa wrote:
I keep seeing dachshunds that look like Sprite and a large Weim who looked just like Buzz would've as an adult...this one had two different colored eyes though.  Maybe they're thinking of you too!

Sprite
My response; Thank YOU for telling me about Buzz and Sprite look-alikes. This is the month that Sprite passed and Buzz was born, and it makes perfect sense that they would send dopplegangers/look-alikes to someone who was writing to me. What great signs

NOTE- Today would have been Buzz's 12th Birthday

 If you or someone you know had a pet pass away, and they're experiencing grief or want to know what signs to look for from the pets in spirit, have them check out my books "Pets and the Afterlife" and my NEW BOOK "Pets and the Afterlife 2" by Rob Gutro, available on Amazon.com in e-book and paperback  (click to go to Amazon)

Part 3: Belmont Manor Ghostly Happenings: The Portal

A portal (doorway)
This is part 3 of the recent investigation of the Belmont Manor that focuses on the room with a ghostly portal or doorway. 

The Inspired Ghost Tracking group of Glen Burnie, Maryland leads public ghost investigations at the historic Belmont Manor (in Elkridge, MD) several times throughout the year through the Howard County Parks Department. The tours are $20 and the funds all go to support the mansion. The registration is through the parks department.

On the most recent investigation, Friday, July 16, there were several experiences where we talked with intelligent haunts (ghosts who answer questions).
  
The ball lit up with an affirmation

LIGHTING UP TO ANSWER - One of the things we use to get "Yes" or "No" answers is a ball that lights up when moved or affected by electrical activity. It's actually a cat toy, but it's easy enough for ghosts to affect it (since they're energy).

THE PORTAL - A portal is a doorway of energy that goes from one place to another.The portal is like a sideways hurricane of swirling energy. It rotates in either a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction. Sometimes in places that have ghosts portals exist. Such is the case in one room in the Belmont.

Cemetery Side of the Portal
DETECTING THE PORTAL - When you walk through the area where the portal is, some people report their legs shaking or feeling a tingling. Others get dizzy while some feel nothing. To detect the location, Amy from IGT placed 2 light-up balls on the floor. One was near the portal, the other was just away from it. The one that was in the location we identified (by different members of the IGT team) flashed every minute or two (as the portal rotated to a certain point). 

WHY AND WHERE DOES THE DOOR GO? -
One of the ghosts of the home uses this portal to go back and forth to the other portal on the property. During a thorough IGT investigation, it was determined that the other portal lies in the middle of the cemetery in the backyard. So, it's our guess that one of the ghosts goes back and forth to the cemetery to visit one of his loved ones who passed before him.

What's amazing this time is that we were actually able to prove the location of the portal with the equipment, and not just sensations from a good number of people.

That concludes the findings from one group at the Belmont during the recent public investigation. If you want to participate in one of the IGT investigations of the Mansion, Call 410-313-0200 or register online:

An Important note about spirit messages/readings

I always welcome emails from anyone who has lost a pet or person and will try to connect. However, once I give
you a "reading" or message please keep in mind that there are always more emails from people waiting for some kind of sign, too. I've corresponded with many people around the world who are devastated after the loss of loved ones. I'm trying to be fair to everyone who is also grieving deeply over the loss of their loved one.

IF YOU EMAIL About a pet who passed - Please tell me what kind of pet you're asking about: Dog, cat, horse; the gender: boy or girl; and even the breed. Why? Because there are so many spirits wanting to give messages, it's hard to know who is taking unless I have some basic information about them. I have received emails asking about "my girl" or my boy"- and nothing else. Some people have had multiple pets, too - and pets growing up. All of them have the ability to say something, so I need a little bit of info to ensure I'm getting a message from the right one.

For Example:   If I get a message from a dog that says, I loved playing with cardboard toilet paper rolls, and your recent dog who passed didn't even bother with them - think about dogs you may have had in the past who may have played with them.

Please consider other grieving folks  - Since I don't make a living from these (I don't charge), and it takes a lot of concentration and time away from my family, I would respectfully ask that once you get a message to try and refrain from asking more questions over several more emails.  Getting messages is not like having a phone conversation with a spirit - it takes a lot of energy for them to connect and for me to pick up on it.

Think about it this way:   It's like getting a piece of free chocolate from a store with samples and then going back 10 times later in the day to get more chocolate.

Case in Point: 
Although it's "free" to everyone, it isn't to me, because it takes time, and I want to help as many people as I can. Years ago, a woman emailed me and was devastated about the loss of her mother.  I was able to get three unique messages from her mom that provided the woman comfort. Two days later she emailed me again saying that she wanted to talk with her mother and find out if she should go to an event. Then days later, she emailed me again, asking who she's with on the other side. A week later she emailed again and asked if her mom's spirit would help guide her (living) brother.  I finally had to email her and tell her that getting messages from spirit isn't like talking on the phone and requires a lot of time and concentration.

So, I'm requesting that if you get messages from me, and you may not be able to understand immediately think about them - often times they will become clear later. If you get confirmations, feel free to let me know it makes sense. The bottom line is that your people or pets are always going to be connected to you.

Part 2: Belmont Manor: Ghostly Happenings: White Haired Lady

A female ghost: Woman in White
This is part 2 of the recent investigation of the Belmont Mansion. In this blog you'll read about the mysterious female ghost who has continually avoided investigators until this time!

The Inspired Ghost Tracking group of Glen Burnie, Maryland leads public ghost investigations at the historic Belmont Mansion (in Elkridge, MD) several times throughout the year through the Howard County Parks Department. The tours are $20 and the funds all go to support the mansion. The registration is through the parks department. On the most recent investigation, Friday, July 16, there were several experiences where we talked with intelligent haunts (ghosts who answer questions).
  

The ball lit up with an affirmation
LIGHTING UP TO ANSWER - One of the things we use to get "Yes" or "No" answers is a ball that lights up when moved or affected by electrical activity. It's actually a cat toy, but it's easy enough for ghosts to affect it (since they're energy)

THE WOMAN IN WHITE FINALLY SPEAKS - Several people have reported seeing a ghostly white haired woman in a white dress. This woman has continually avoided the Inspired Ghost Tracking team during investigations. Not this time!
  In one of the rooms that is usually devoid of activity, we were surprised to hear from her.
  We placed the light up plastic cat toy balls on the bed. I was talking about the woman that people have seen, but the IGT team has not. I said "I don't think she likes people" and suddenly the 2 balls lit up and kept flashing!  That was a confirmation from her that she in fact, did not like people!
- So, I next asked if she wanted us to leave so she could be alone and they flashed again!
No one was anywhere near the bed and there was no movement- so we can say that we now know why we've never seen or heard from the ghostly woman - She wants to be left alone and doesn't like people!

Part 1: Belmont Mansion Ghostly Happenings: Amanda the Ghost

Ronda of IGT asking questions to the ghost in "Amanda's bedroom"
The Inspired Ghost Tracking group of Glen Burnie, Maryland leads public ghost investigations at the historic Belmont Mansion (in Elkridge, MD) several times throughout the year through the Howard County Parks Department. The tours are $20 and the funds all go to support the mansion. The registration is through the parks department.

On the most recent investigation, Friday, July 16, there were several experiences where we talked with intelligent haunts (ghosts who answer questions).

There were 21 people who signed up for the investigation. So, the Inspired Ghost Tracking teams split into two groups. One for the first floor and basement, and the other for the second floor. I covered the second floor with Ronda, Amy and Jimmy.

A GHOST NAMED AMANDA - On previous investigations we learned that there is a 6 year old girl named Amanda who died of the flu and still plays in the house. People have seen her. I got all the info about her name, age, and death on a previous investigation - as I channeled her while Ronda asked me questions (we work so well together).
  
The ball lit up with an affirmation
LIGHTING UP TO ANSWER - One of the things we use to get "Yes" or "No" answers is a ball that lights up when moved or affected by electrical activity. It's actually a cat toy, but it's easy enough for ghosts to affect it (since they're energy). Well, Ronda asked questions and Amanda answered confirming her presence. A visitor in the group asked Amanda if she knew what was pictured on her shirt (they were butterflies), and the ball lit up. Another question was asked and the ball didn't light. Then a woman asked if Amanda knew what was on her shirt (cats) and the ball lit up.  Other questions were asked and received no response.

TV TIME - At the end of the questions we were about to leave when suddenly Amanda turned on the television in the room. We were all startled as the remote was in a drawer and no one was near the television. Again, ghosts can do that because they're electrical energy. Maybe Amanda was acknowledging she was done with her visitors and wanted to watch television.

The book also includes the original story and the first dozen signs from my puppy Buzz, who proved he was still around in spirit, and showed me how pets communicate from the other side. He was the inspiration for this book.
   You'll walk through historic places and meet the ghosts that dwell in them, You'll also read stories from others with their encounters of Earth-bound ghosts and spirits, and a great chapter about a mother and son's experiences with both.

Max the Cat Provides Many Messages

Every week I get a good number of emails from grieving pet parents who dog or cat passed, and they ask me to connect if I can. Fortunately, pets are great communicators!

Here's a series of emails about a Cat named Max that came through to me. Just look at the ways he let me know that it was him - there were so many ways!!

EMAIL TO ME: 
Hi Rob, I really appreciate you giving me comfort that my family and I will see my beautiful Cat Max that was 16 years old and lived with us for 16 years will be waiting for us in heaven we die one day. I wanted to ask you if you are able to connect with Max and find out from him if he is happy and feeling healthy and at peace where he is. My husband and I and our son have been quite upset about his passing and it would be great if we knew how he is doing. Thank you so much!!

MY EMAIL AND MAX'S MESSAGES
Hi -   When I read your note I kept seeing a somewhat striped cat tail curling around, and his ears are perked up. Of course, I have no idea what he looked like. But he is safely on the other side.
   Was there someone that you referenced to him as "uncle" who passed away? I keep hearing Uncle... or is the "uncle" someone that he particularly liked on this side? He seems quite connected to him.
    His health is perfect - as we all achieve perfect health in spirit- because we become pure energy.
  Max is also showing that he likes to lay on his side, I think it's his right side and expose his tummy. Did he do that?  He's purring contentedly, too, telling me that he's grateful for the wonderful life he had with you and is still going to come around.
 You may see him as a shadow from the corner of your eye, or may even feel his presence jump on a bed or a couch. Mostly likely, he'll make an appearance in all of your dreams.
  He will always be connected to you!
Hope you can make sense of some of these things and they bring you comfort.

 EMAIL CONFIRMING WHAT MAX SHOWED ME:
Max did have a striped tail. He was a domestic long hair gray and white cat. Max did like lying on his right side on our carpet in the living room. I am so happy that is safely on the other side and that he is happy and purring and in perfect health. It is amazing that you said an uncle that passed away because my uncle Vince did pass away around a month ago. Do you know if this is the uncle that Max is connected to on the other side. I am so grateful to you for connecting with Max. This really does bring comfort to my family and I.
I just want to ask you something else if that is okay. Do you know if Max is upset with my husband and I for having him put down. Because I am sometimes feeling guilty for doing that but I know that he was not doing well and that’s why we decided to do that.
 
A pic of Max sent to me after the first couple of emails
MY RESPONSE AND MORE MESSAGES FROM MAX: Max is not upset with you or your husband. In fact, he's thankful that you both were strong enough to recognize that he was tired of fighting and wanted to move on, and have the courage to help make that happen. It is the most unselfish act of unconditional love that we can show for each other. 
  He doesn't want you to feel guilt. He thanks you and wants you to know how much he appreciates your love. 

EMAIL CONFIRMING APPEARANCE IN DREAMS! 
Hi Rob,I hope you are doing great!! I had my first dream of Max last night since he has passed away. He was in his litter box and he looked fine, also I noticed there was hardly any cat litter in his box and as I was watching him he was slowly getting smaller in size and then just disappeared. You were right about me seeing him in a dream. Thanks again for everything!!
