Purpose of this Blog

Rob Gutro is an author, paranormal investigator and medium with Inspired Ghost Tracking of Maryland. Since he was a child he could receive messages from ghosts or spirits (who have crossed over). *He wrote the books "Pets and the Afterlife," "Pets and the Afterlife 2," "Ghosts and Spirits" and "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead" to teach others how ghosts and Spirits communicate with the living and to give proof of the afterlife. As a scientist, he also provides some scientific explanations about how energy is the baseline for the afterlife and the medium that entities use to communicate.

My Interesting Conversation on Amazon.com about a Medium

 Here's a blog conversation I participated in when I saw a review of a Medium's book (that I haven't read, and I don't know him). The woman who suffered a terrible tragedy seemed to want the medium to tell her a lot about her husband and son who passed. That's not how it works. Further, someone who totally misinterprets the Bible wrote that he thinks Mediums convey messages from evil beings. That really got to me. Here's the conversation:


This review is from: We Don't Die (Paperback)
REVIEW FROM T:   I first read the earlier edition of "We Don't Die" around 1996. It was my favorite book and I recommended it to everyone. I swore that if anything happened to someone I loved I would find a way to get a reading with George. I was so convinced he was the real thing. Then tragedy struck in the summer of 1998 when both my husband and son died just a few weeks apart. I contacted George's office right away.

"T" said that she got a reading from George but he didn't acknowledge her son and the things that he said "could've been looked up on public record." Below is my response, and one that really irritated me because of the person's ignorance and misuse of the Bible. - Rob

I'm sorry for your loss. Perhaps he did access public records and if so, should have told you. However, if he did, he would've known you had a child, though. I see that people expect a lot from mediums as if they were having a direct, full conversation with someone who passed.
Maybe I can shed some light on things for you. I have the gift (that I don't fully know how to use) of sometimes receiving and sensing communications from those who passed. It's not like having a conversation with a living person. Sometimes mediums will get images, scattered words or pictures and try to piece them together. They'll share them with the person they're intended for and they will have to figure out the messages. I'm not a medium (I call myself a "medium rare" because I can't just call on spirits, they come to me when they do) but I will tell you that your husband and son are aware of what you're going through and come back time to time to visit you. You need to understand that energy (the soul, brainwaves) cannot be destroyed only transformed. It's a scientific fact. *because I'm a scientist, too, I try using science to explain why our loved ones are still around you. There's a posting on a blog I maintain http://ghostsandspiritsinsights.blogspot.com/ (yes, I wrote a book about what it's like for an average guy to get these messages)- on June 14 about a program on the Discovery Channel that you may want to watch on-line. It's called Discovery Channel Program: Scientific Look at Tracking Souls to the Afterlife.
I'd be happy to try and help comfort you, and refer you to a proven medium named Barb Mallon in Virginia. She's given readings to several people I know and told them only things THEY know. I assure you she's genuinely talented and learned. Sincerely, Rob

First let me say I am so very sorry for the loss of your husband and son. Everyone has a right to believe what they wish to believe, and I don't know what your religious beliefs are. It says in the Bible to beware of people who claim to be mediums, channelers or prophets. From this and other sources I've learned that when we die, we are with God. God may comfort us by allowing us to hear from our loved ones at some point in our lives, or he may have reasons why He doesn't. But He does not need a medium to do so. I truly believe that evil spirits exist who may come through these mediums and give us messages that are misleading. The best way to find comfort is to pray and ask God directly for it. I will keep you in my prayers and I hope you find the comfort you need.

Dear D. Davidson- The Bible has been altered over time, and many things have been removed from it including the idea of reincarnation. I urge you to research the history of the Bible before making judgements. Even the Vatican employs a medium. On occasion I have personally have received messages from people who have passed about things I have no knowledge of, and have shared them to comfort people (which they have). It's all for good. There's nothing evil about it. This is a God-given gift and has nothing to do with evil.
Unfortunately, out of ignorance people use their Bible as a way to create fear, division and hatred toward others over something they don't understand. It is unfortunate that your faith has blinded you to other gifts from God.

THANK you. Excellent point and well made. When I hear the bible being misquoted/misinterpreted, especially in terms of "communication with the dead", I respond "WHAT ABOUT PRAYING TO THE SAINTS? THEY'RE DEAD, AREN'T THEY?" I, too, have the "gift" (but I do not use it) and I understand your original post about sifting through "images" and "random thoughts". As one does it, one gets better at it. IF the result of communicating with a deceased loved one is JOY and giving God PRAISE for keeping our loved one in His care, HOW can that serve Satan? It can't.

Regarding R.Gutro's & Ellzeena's post: AMEN! It took a long time for me to realize how the Bible has been misused by so many-in particular to intimidate and manipulate people into doing or believing things that are simply not true or even against what God may have intended. It's misuse has closed far too many minds to what beautiful things may be possible for us. Not that I buy into all of this, but my mind remains OPEN.

Book: Ghosts on Film

I read a lot of books about the paranormal, trying to always learn more and get different people's understandings. I recently finished "GHOSTS ON FILM" by Troy Taylor. Troy has written a number of other paranormal books (which I haven't read yet).
  I found this book to be helpful, especially in terms of defining orbs and explaining how photography works in reference to the supernatural. The first section of the book went into a detailed history of photography to give an understanding of how it works. I started getting lost in the details there, however, and skimmed through the book until I got to the chapters on photographing entities. 
  Troy did provide extensive research on how early photographers tried to scam people with trick photographs of supposed entities. He also provided early photos that were scammed. 
  He also brings up Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of the great Sherlock Holmes novels and a supporter of mediumship. I didn't know that!
  In short, I found this book educational and interesting, and would recommend it to any ghost hunter!
BOOK SUMMARY FROM THE PUBLISHER: Author and ghost researcher Troy Taylor once again delves into the supernatural with a guide to the history and mystery of spirit photography. In this latest installment in the popular “Haunted Field Guide” series, the author takes an in-depth look at the controversial and mysterious history of spirit photography, including a look at the mediums and scientists who pioneered the field and the most famous pictures that allege to be ghosts captured on film.
