Like many people, I also watch a lot of the ghost "hunting" TV shows: Ghost Hunters, Ghost Hunters International, and Ghost Adventures. Although its fascinating to see people use scientific equipment to prove that ghosts exist in the buildings they explore, they never take a medium with them. I think that's a mistake. Why? Because mediums can communicate with ghosts to learn why they are still there, and help them cross over into the light where they belong.
I belong to a great ghost group, and they're called "Inspired Ghost Trackers," because they use scientific equipment to "Track" ghosts, not "hunt them." Whenever we find a ghost we also try and cross them over, because they deserve the peace of being with their families.
I didn't always have this awareness. Yes, I knew spirits were people who passed, but earth-bound ghosts always had more of a mystery of who they were. My friend Louis Charles, author of the great book "Ghosts Need Help, Too" really helped push that awareness in me some years ago. It's an amazing book, and one that all in the "ghost hunting business" should read to help remind them that ghosts need help crossing into the light.
Remember, ghosts had lives on Earth. They were people, too. They may have had children, spouses, pets, jobs. They traveled and worked. They lived and breathed. Now they deserve that final peace. After all, most ghost hunters will get a sound file from a haunted location that says "help me."
Although they may initially choose to stay on Earth, they forget how to cross over and need our help to do so. They belong in the light and as part of the energy of the cosmos, not on Earth.
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.
