3 Late Visitors in B&B

Today I went to a really cool Bed and Breakfast and discovered at least three ghosts inside. When I entered the building, I immediately got a dull headache in the back of my head, indicating that there were ghosts (beings of energy, Earth-bound) in the dwelling. I got the sense of a woman in the room on the first floor.
There was a lot of energy on the main stairwell as I ascended to the second floor. I also encountered the ghost of a man who passed in one room. As soon as I got into the room, he made me breathe heavily, feeling how he felt as he was dying in that room. Another room had a brilliant, calming, healing energy. It was a total emotional difference from the other room.
The B&B was in fact three different row homes (all built in the 1800s) before they were merged into this beautiful bed and breakfast. Each of those ghosts I encountered were not of recent times, but were residents of the homes in the past. It was quite an experience, as I haven't often encountered multiple ghosts in a place before.

Love Never Fades - it powers up Spirits who have crossed.

In a number of the events that I've been to and had the opportunity to speak with people about my book, the topic of love comes up often. Love the main emotion that powers spirits (those who have crossed into the light) to "power up" and come back to give messages or signs to those they left behind. Positive emotions help spirits who have crossed over while negative emotions (fear, anxiety, hatred) help earth-bound ghosts power up.
One instance of the power that love brings to a spirit happened when a man and his daughter came up to me earlier this year at The "Karmafest" event. As the man approached I sensed a spirit around him, a woman. He asked me about the book, and I explained that I wrote it based on my developing abilities to talk to ghosts and spirits. He asked about his wife who passed, and I instantly knew it was her around he and his daughter. His wife (who passed from an illness) immediately filled me up with so much emotion and love that she held for these two, that it caused me to visibly shake. It was overwhelming. She wanted them to know that she's around them all the time.
The man confirmed that some "odd things" happen around the house. He mentioned the strings from shades that he constantly finds wrapped in knots in the spare room (whenever he goes in there). He said that he and his wife shared a memory about knots, something from a movie they watched together. He said he couldn't understand how the knots kept happening, when neither he nor his daughter tied them, and there was no one else in the house. Obviously, it was a clear sign from his wife.
So, the love that the man and his late wife shared are giving her the power to tie those knots, and power enough as a spirit to make me visibly shake with the energy and love she has for her husband and daughter.
In short, love never fades. In fact, it powers those who have passed (and gone into the light) to send us messages they're still checking in on us from time to time, and leaving signs (if we're paying attention).

Spirits and Child Prodigies

If you have a child that has an incredible talent, and you don't know where this talent came from, your child may be recalling a past life, and carried over the talent from that life into the present life.
- I know that some find this hard to grasp. However, there are a number of children that recall historic events in details they could never know. One such instance is this, according to ABC NEWS: Six decades ago, a 21-year-old Navy fighter pilot on a mission over the Pacific was shot down by Japanese artillery. His name might have been forgotten, were it not for 6-year-old James Leininger. Quite a few people — including those who knew the fighter pilot — think James is the pilot, reincarnated. James' parents, Andrea and Bruce, a highly educated, modern couple, say they are "probably the people least likely to have a scenario like this pop up in their lives." But over time, they have become convinced their little son has had a former life. FULL STORY: http://abcnews.go.com/Primetime/Technology/story?id=894217&page=3
On a related note, if a child has memories of a past life that can be proven by those who still live, then why wouldn't a child carry on some of the talents they acquired during a previous life? They would.
DEFINITION: A child prodigy is someone who at an early age masters one or more skills at an adult level.[1] One heuristic for classifying prodigies is: a prodigy is a child, typically younger than 15 years old, who is performing at the level of a highly trained adult in a very demanding field of endeavor.
One such child prodigy was in the news this past week. A five year old boy that paints like an impressionist painter. When you look at his works, you'll be as amazed as I was. I'm convinced that this child, Kieran Williamson of England, lived before as a painter. You will be convinced, too. Five year olds simply don't have this ability- it had to come from somewhere else, and that was likely a past lifetime.
Some information from his website about Kieron: Kieron was a typical energetic toddler with a passion for mud and water. He loved riding his bike and throwing stones into the sea and every available puddle. The walk to and from school was more like an assault course for Kieron and he would often appear out of the bushes with a stick or bug in hand. Today Kieron is one of the world's youngest, globally reaching artists. His recent work has seen bids from over 35 different countries. He has over 1800 fans on his mailing list, featured all over YouTube and the world's media websites.....

Amazon UK Has a New Kindle E-Book! Mine!

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Giving a new meaning to the phrase "Ghosts in the Machine," Amazon.co.uk's Kindle now offers a new E-book called "Ghosts and Spirits: Insights from a Medium," by Rob Gutro.
"Ghosts and Spirits: Insight from a Medium" is also available in paperback, and is published by Virtualbookworm.com. In its first week of publication, the book rated #30 in popularity of paranormal books at the U.S.'s Amazon.com on January 9, 2010.

Gutro is more recognized for his work on hurricanes at the U.S. Space agency NASA, but has recently published the book based on his inherited ability to communicate with Earth-bound ghosts or spirits.
"I'm looking forward to coming to the U.K. in the next year and visiting many of the haunted places," Gutro added. "Encounters with ghosts in the U.K. would be an entire book in itself, and one that I would love to write," he said.
For people who enjoy television ghost hunting programs, haunted houses or want to know the who, what, where, when and whys of ghosts and spirits, this book will provide insight and answers to better understand them.
Readers will learn the difference between ghosts and spirits and the ways they attempt to communicate with the living. Gutro will also share true stories of paranormal encounters submitted from his friends around the U.S. After each story, Rob explains the encounter and what the entity is trying to communicate. The book also highlights the author's experiences on ghost walks in various cities or in historic places around the U.S. "The purpose of the book is to educate people about what happens after their loved ones pass," Gutro said.

In a Gym, Driving to Work...Spirits communicate anywhere.

Ghosts and spirits will talk to me anywhere. Over the last week I've heard them driving to work and in the gym I work out at. Although ghosts haunt places they're familiar with, and are restricted to communicating where they choose to dwell, spirits can communicate anywhere in the world. Once a spirit passes into the light it gives them that ability.
- Last week I was driving to work, and as I was nearing the office a co-worker's father came to me and gave me visions of a workbench, and kept calling the name "Johnny" or "Jonnie" - turns out that's the name of the co-worker's husband. Her dad also told me to tell her how proud he is of her, in her way of helping one of her boys pursue his dreams.
- Another instance happened when I went to the gym I work out at. I mentioned to a young woman at the check in counter that I wrote the book "Ghosts and Spirits: Insights from a Medium" and she wanted to know the difference between the entities, and a couple of other questions. She got distracted from our short conversation because she had to do her job... so Tom and I went to work out. While on the treadmill, I received a vision of a "grandmother-like figure" with grey hair pulled back in a bun, and wearing a red dress. She also showed me an apple (as in the color of an apple). I also got a message about a young man with one earring. Upon leaving, I talked with the woman behind the counter about these messages, and she confirmed that it was her great-grandmother, and that the last time she saw her great-grandmother alive she (the great-grandmother) was in fact, wearing a red dress. The message was that she's around the young woman and watching over her.
So, spirits can communicate anywhere... and do!
