Thomas Edison and Contacting the Dead

I've been reading George Noory's book "Talking to the Dead." George is well known for being the host of the amazing and widely syndicated radio show "Coast to Coast AM." I was honored to be his guest recently and really enjoying talking with him.
 - George's book talks about the history of EVPs, and obtaining audio from ghosts and spirits. One of the things that piqued my interest was his discussion of Thomas Edison. He said that Edison said several times that he may have thought communicating with the dead was possible. At one point, Edison said "There is a doubt. I am not sure. That's the reason I am experimenting. But if I didn't believe, I wouldn't try."  Noory said that if Edison tried to work on a prototype, none was found when he died.
Thomas Edison
  Ghostvillage.com wrote an arhttp://www.ghostvillage.com/ghostcommunity/index.php?showtopic=19802ticle about Edison's communications:
  Noory's book is filled with many people who tried creating "telephones" to talk with the dead, including an inventor in Scotland who put a telephonic apparatus to the throat of mediums in order to "hear spirit voices" coming from within the medium. That invention came about in the late nineteenth century.
  Interesting stuff- and check out George Noory's book "Talking to the Dead" for more info on trying to obtain electronic recordings and EVPs.

Article to Consider - Can Dealing With Evil Spirits Kill You?

I ran across this article to consider: Bad Vibes: Can Dealing With Evil Spirits Kill You? http://whofortedblog.com/2012/07/15/bad-vibes-dealing-demonic-affect-health-kill-hurt/ 
I just learned that Ryan Buell at 30 is dealing with pancreatic cancer. He was the team lead for Penn State's "Paranormal State" television program. The article suggests that several paranormal researchers that dealt with demonic entities became extremely ill. It's something to think about. It's also a good idea to mentally shield yourself before going on investigations- picture a white light of safety around you.
My feeling is that negative energy, and depression within the person weakens someone's immune system. I have a friend in Virginia who has now battled four different types of cancer (starting over 26 years ago) and because he's optimistic and doesn't get depressed, he continues to beat physical ailments. Other people, however, who are battling depression are often sick with various things. That doesn't mean that depression causes illness. Not by any means. It means that depression and a negative attitude will weaken your immune system and make you more susceptible to an illness. - That's been proven for decades. 
I sincerely wish Ryan the best. He's an incredible guy and has inspired so many. Now he's inspiring many in his battle with pancreatic cancer. Please send him positive thoughts, and keep YOUR thoughts positive to help yourself.

Read the Baltimore Guide Article: Medium visits Federal Hill book shop and identifies ghostly inhabitant

Read the great article the Erik Zygmont of the Baltimore Guide wrote about my appearance at the Book Escape in Baltimore. Margaret Perry Ehrlich and Ronda Dixon of Inspired Ghost Trackers were there, too, and helped tell the story of our previous investigation. http://baltimoreguide.com/http:/baltimoreguide.com/medium-visits-federal-hill-book-shop-and-identifies-ghostly-inhabitant/

 

Medium visits Federal Hill book shop and identifies ghostly inhabitant

Written by on July 18, 2012 in Featured, Neighborhood News - No comments
Medium Rob Gutro relaxes among the stacks at The Book Escape, possibly home to a helpful ghost.
Meteorologist Rob Gutro, who talks to the dead in his spare time, says that the weird goings-on at Federal Hill’s The Book Escape, a used book store at 805 Light St., are indeed the activities of a ghostly resident.
Store owner Andrew Stonebarger said he experienced something very strange in the basement of the store.
“I heard a noise in one of the rooms,” he said. “The microwave had turned itself on.”
Stonebarger also described another experience:
“When you’re looking for a special book and you’re going through the shelves, once in a while the book you were looking for will just fall from the shelves,” he said. “It has happened to me once or twice, but it’s also happened to other employees.”
Gutro, an author and medium from Bowie, investigated The Book Escape with members of Inspired Ghost Tracking, a Jessup group that, as indicated by the name, tracks ghosts.
“I was able to determine the identity of the person who still lingered there,” said Gutro. “He had something do do with books per se, but I don’t know if I should give it away.”
Gutro’s latest book, Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead, reveals the true identity of the shade.
At a book signing at The Book Escape last weekend, Gutro treated visitors to the full story of the bookstore’s ghost, as well as an audio recording of the ghost telling him and the ghost trackers to “go away.”
His connections with the spirit world aside, Gutro leads a normal life.
Gutro said that he had his first encounter at 14.
“I saw my grandfather appear in front of me, six months after he died,” he said. “That’s when I knew something was going on.”
Things happened sporadically from then. Gutro’s six-month-old weimaraner puppy died tragically in front of his eyes. After that, “he started making appearances,” Gutro said.
Things really picked up when he met his partner, according to Gutro.
“I fell in love,” he said. “It made me more receptive to messages.”
While he was writing his first book, Ghosts and Spirits: Insights from a Medium, Gutro experienced the death of his father.
But he wasn’t really gone.
At the funeral, Gutro’s grieving mother was sobbing uncontrollably. She quickly reduced her tissues to wet and useless shreds.
Gutro said that his father told him, three times, “Tell her to use my handkerchief.” In their 53 years of marriage, Gutro’s mother had always refused to touch his father’s handkerchiefs, even to wash them. When Gutro finally relayed his father’s message, his mother was taken aback.
“For the first time in 53 years, my mother had one of my dad’s handkerchief’s on her,” Gutro said. “She pulled it out of her pocket.”
Formerly a radio broadcast meteorologist for the Weather Channel, Gutro continues to work as a meteorologist. Additionally, schools, museums, and social groups request him for speaking engagements on weather-related topics. He and his partner love dogs, especially weimaraners and dachshunds. He likes coffee and exercise, he said.

Ghosts in Another Room?

I enjoy watching the ghost hunting shows on television with my partner, who is also a certified ghost investigator on the Inspired Ghost Trackers team. One question he asked was "why are ghosts always in the next room?"
  Think about it. If you're watching "Ghost Hunters" or "Ghost Adventures" or some other ghost hunting program, usually investigators hear noises in another room.  Why do you think that is?
Haunted Hospital room. Cr: Lovethesepics.com
  I believe it has to do with the personality of the ghost. Remember that ghosts maintain the personalities they had when they were living, breathing people. Some ghosts causing activity in another room may be shy and not want to directly confront the living, yet, they want to let them know that they exist. It's like shy people who want so much  to let people know they're in a room, but are afraid to come up to someone and talk to them. So, the shy ghosts make noise in another room as a "cry for help." Usually, a ghost's cry for help means a request to help them cross into the light to join their loved ones.
  Another personality trait th may be the reason a ghost makes a noise in another room instead of in the direct presence of someone, is that the entity may enjoying playing/toying with people, and trying to scare them. People who were controlling or power hungry in life, would be controlling in death. Those kinds of people who are now earth-bound ghosts, would enjoy scaring people from a room away, making them wonder what happened in another room.
  Whatever the reason for a ghost making a noise from another room- it's all to get attention to let the living know they're dwelling in a place, and they want help crossing into the light.

My Thanks to the Book Escape, Baltimore


I had a great time today giving 2 short talks about the ghost that haunts the Book Escape  http://www.thebookescape.com/(and he's a good-tempered ghost), and meeting some great people. The Book Escape is a used bookstore (that also sells new books and MORE) in Baltimore, Maryland's Federal Hill neighborhood, which is in  itself very historic.
   My thanks to Andrew for hosting me- and for Erik Zygmont of BaltimoreGuide.com for attending and writing an article about it. (Watch http://baltimoreguide.com/ for an article later this week).
   My thanks to Margaret and Ronda of Inspired Ghost Tracking (of which I'm a proud member) for coming up and helping out with the technical aspects of the talk, and Lisa from the group.
  Thanks to Steve for videotaping (watch for the video soon on this blog!), and Jane for the introduction to Andrew several years ago that led to the investigation and an earlier talk, too. I met other great folks like Rico, and a woman and her two children, who so nicely sat and listened. There were also others, too.
   It was a great experience, and an amazing book store, which I highly recommend. After all, I went shopping there after I finished! :)
