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.

Nuzzled by a Princess (Spirit Cat Communicates)

This is part three of my experiences at the New England Pet Expo. I attended the expo in September to promote my book "Pets and the Afterlife." In this blog, you'll learn how a special cat's spirit gave several physical signs.

This is a blog I call: "Nuzzled by a Princess"

Princess was a beloved family cat who lived with Joanie and her daughter. I met both of them at the Pet Expo and they told me that they created a facebook page as a tribute to their cat, Princess, who passed. "Paws for Princess" is a grassroots group of caring, compassionate folks in western Massachusetts who are dedicated to the safety and well being of all community cats.

WHO WAS PRINCESS? - Princess was a feral kitten who touched many people's lives. She joined our family at 4 months old and lived a happy life. Princess past away suddenly at less than 2 years old. This group was named after her to keep her memory alive and to protect all feral cats.

SENSING PRINCESS IN SPIRIT - Joanie's daughter told me that after Princess had passed, she has sensed her beloved cat several times. She said that she had been nuzzled by her cat's spirit, feeling a cat nose on her face and no one was there!  She also reported feeling Princess' spirit brush by her legs and she's felt Princess on the bed. 

All of these things are ways in which cats commonly communicate from spirit. Cats tend to be more stealth in their after death communications and tend to give physical sensations.

Spirits Lead Us to People or Pets: A Trigger Leads to a Bullet

This is part two of my experiences at the New England Pet Expo. I attended the expo in September to promote my book "Pets and the Afterlife." In this blog, you'll learn how spirit influences the living and leads us to someone we need.

"A Trigger Leads to a Bullet"

During my talk at the Pet expo about my book, I explained how spirits (either those of people or pets) can lead us to someone that we need to meet. After the talk ended a woman came up to my table and told me that she had a dog named "Trigger" who passed. In her grief, she was one day moved to go to a nearby animal shelter. She said that she went to possibly adopt another dog although she was still dealing with Trigger's loss. However, spirits have a way of bringing us to places and encouraging us to do things to heal ourselves.

The woman explained that as she was walking through the shelter, one dog caught her eye, and she knew she needed to get a closer look. She said as soon as she saw the dog's name on his cage in the shelter, she knew he was the right dog. His name was "Bullet." She told me that she knew that appropriately, the spirit of her dog "Trigger" led her to adopt "Bullet."

To add to that - it is interesting for folks who remember Roy Rogers, the singing cowboy- that he ALSO had a pet (horse) named Trigger, and he had a dog named Bullet.

Watch for signs from our loved ones in Spirit on Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!  Holidays, birthdays and anniversaries are usually the time spirits of our loved ones, people or pets, come around and give us signs to let us know they're around. It
Webster was a black and tan Dachshund like this guy
happens all the time (although we may miss the signs if we're not paying attention). It already happened today.

   This morning, Thanksgiving morning, the spirit of a black and tan dachshund let me know that he's been around his mom - so I messaged her immediately. Back in April 2014 after Webster the dachshund had passed, he came through to me when a song came on as I was thinking about him. It was "Somewhere Out There" by Linda Ronstadt and James Ingram. 
     WEBSTER'S THANKSGIVING GREETING - This morning as I was preparing to put the turkey in the oven, I took a picture of our three dogs in the kitchen who ran over to it and were sniffing like crazy. I posted it on my personal facebook page. After I posted it, I read the first posting, and it was from our friend Shelley, whose dachshund Webster passed in 2014. 
   I then clicked on Pandora.com to play some music while cooking, and Webster's song was the first one that came on.  
   There is NO such thing as a coincidence when it comes to spirits.

MY MESSAGE TO SHELLEY - Good morning, Shelley! _ No sooner did I post the pic of our kids sniffing the turkey as I was about to set it in the oven this morning, that I saw your posting about your baking a pie... and Pandora radio played its first song this morning - from Webster. "Somewhere Out There" by Linda Ronstadt and James Ingram . It choked me up! He wants to let you know that he's around you today and was proud of you for baking that pie. 

   Previously, Webster made himself known to me before, when I was baking and I let Shelley know.  She told me that he would always be in the kitchen whenever food appeared... and he still is.
First Message from Webster/The Blog from April 5, 2014:  Musical Sign from Webster the Dachshund
    On April 5, 2014, I was responding to an email from my friend Shelley, who is also a dachshund rescue volunteer. She had just lost her beloved dog, Webster. As I wrote in my new book, Pets and the Afterlife" - losing a dog is the same as losing a child. My heart hurts for Shelley and everyone who loses a pet (as I've lost several dogs).
   As I was writing to Shelley, her dog Webster's spirit came through to me immediately. I happened to log onto Pandora.com radio.. As soon as the music started to play, I wrote to Shelley and said "Webster JUST sent me a song for you. I've never heard it come up on Pandora and I instantly knew it was a message from him. 
It's Somewhere Out There by Linda Ronstadt and James Ingram.  
This song is from Webster with love: https://youtu.be/RkI-B2JWSZI

NDEs (Near Death Experiences) and Sensitivity

In September I was one of the vendors at the New England (NE) Pet Expo in Wilmington, Mass. and got to speak about my book "Pets and the Afterlife." I met a lot of fascinating people there and heard some great stories. This is the first of those stories and focuses on Near Death Experiences and why I think people who have them become sensitive to ghosts and spirits. - Rob Gutro

PART 1: NDE and Sensitivity to Spirit

It's very common for people who have had near death experiences or NDEs to come back to life and become sensitive to ghosts and spirits. In fact, it happens almost all the time.

WHAT IS A NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE (NDE)? - A near-death experience (NDE) is a personal experience associated with impending death, that may include the detachment of spirit (soul, memories and personality as energy) from the body, feelings of levitation, total serenity, security, warmth, the experience of absolute dissolution, and the presence of a light.

I believe that when the physical body experiences a temporary "death" the spirit leaves the body and connects to the energy of the spirit world. (It's all about energy after all). Once that temporary bond is created, even if your spirit re-enters your physical body and resumes and Earthly life, the connection to the energy of spirit (and ghosts) remains.

THE ENCOUNTER AT THE EXPO: I met a woman named A.J. at the Pet Expo who explained that she had a near death experience. She's a nurse by trade and she said that since she had the experience and came back to the land of the physical, she developed the ability to know when patients will pass away. HOW?  She likely developed that ability because she can tap into the energies of her patients and read their energy levels. Once their energy level drops to a certain level, she's aware that they're going to pass from the physical world. 

A GREAT RESOURCE:  I found a great website about Near Death Experiences while writing this blog: http://www.near-death.com/.

CONFLICTING SCIENTIFIC EXPLANATION - One scientific study reported in Smithsonian Magazine in 2013 stated that one researcher noted "A Last-Second Surge of Brain Activity Could Explain Near-Death Experiences." The article said that near-death sightings of light at the end of a tunnel may be related to the 30 seconds of activity in rats' brains after their hearts stop. Of course, this study hadn't been conducted on humans, and we do know that ghosts and spirits are the energies of people and animals with their memories and personalities, so despite the 30 seconds of a "final charge to the brain" many experiences last longer than that and people do leave their bodies.

Amazing Sign on My Dad's Birthday

November 8 would have been my dad's 88th birthday. Dad passed in 2008, but he's given me lots of signs he's still around. Spirits usually come around on birthdays, anniversaries and holidays, and my Dad was no exception to the rule this year!  Of course, he had help from my mother (also in spirit).

We were driving to do an errand and directly in front of us, stopped at a red light was a silver car. On the bumper of the car was a bumper sticker that said "I love Bean Ava Maria." Ava Maria was my mother's favorite song! Since my mother usually did the talking for my dad in life, she was doing it from spirit - by leading us directly behind that car! 

Rob's mom and dad
Here's another thing that's strange and wonderful about the situation: "The Bean of Ave Maria" is a coffee shop... IN FLORIDA!  It's located at 5068 Annunciation Circle, Unit 206,Ave Maria, FL. Again, what are the chances that a car in Maryland would have a bumpersticker about a place in Florida, and right in front of us at the very time we decided to go out to run an errand? 

As I've learned since being able to get messages from people who have passed (since I was 13), there is no such thing as a coincidence when it comes to how spirits give messages.

It was obvious that my mom's spirit led us to drive directly behind THAT particular car, so I would know that she and my dad were around me today. 
I wrote about many signs that my dad gave me after he passed in my book "Ghosts and Spirits"  (which I retired), and "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead" which is available on Amazon.com in paperback and E-book.

'Not all heroes are human': French police dog killed in raid

USA TODAY reported:  A police dog named "Diesel" was killed during a police raid on Wednesday that targeted the suspected mastermind of deadly terror attacks in Paris.
    The seven-year-old Belgian Shepherd was killed sometime during the seven-hour siege on an apartment in the Paris suburb of Saint Denis; French police tweeted on Wednesday. (Nov. 17).
   Police posted a photo of Diesel and said, “assault and explosives search dogs are indispensable in the missions of the operators of the raid."

The raid ended Wednesday  (Nov. 17, 2015) with the arrest of seven people with suspected links to the Paris attacks. Two suspects, including a female suicide bomber who detonated explosives as police entered the apartment, were killed.
    On social media, people shared pictures of Diesel and voiced support for the people of France. Many used the hashtag #SaintDenis, #PrayforParis and some tweeted that #NotAllHeroesAreHuman.
