Purpose of this Blog

Rob Gutro is an author, paranormal investigator and medium with Inspired Ghost Tracking of Maryland.

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.

2 Meteorologists and Ghost Hunters! Check this FL Group

Brian McNoldy
Those who know me, know that I'm a meteorologist in my career. Until now, I haven't run into another meteorologist who also investigates hauntings. 
   Recently I had the good fortune to "meet" Brian McNoldy, another meteorologist who is also a "ghost hunter/tracker" and he co-manages a group in south Florida called The Haunted Investigations Team or H.I.T.
    H.I.T. was established in 2008 in northern Colorado. Along with the original branch in Fort Collins CO, the team has grown a new branch in Miami Fl.  their goal is to help people with claims of ghosts, haunted houses, or other paranormal activity.  WEBSITE: hauntinginvestigations.org

WHAT WE DO
ABOUT THE GROUP:
      We provide a free service to the public to investigate, document, and address any suspected or undesired paranormal activity in a residence, business, or outdoor area. We use a scientific and skeptical approach, since the majority of paranormal claims have very normal explanations.  We are professional, discreet, and confidential.
HOW WE DO IT
      We use various recording devices and meters to find suspicious areas, debunk paranormal claims, or document legitimate paranormal activity. The devices include thermometers, Electro-Magnetic Field (EMF) detectors, digital voice and video recorders, digital cameras, and webcams... combined with our own experiences.

 The Website has profiles of each member, and gives great definitions: http://hauntinginvestigations.org/hit_site_004.htm

Moving out of a Haunted House? Some Suggestions

This was one of my most popular posts, so I'm reprinting it! - Let me know if you lived in a haunted house... (I did in 1996-97 in Kentucky).
 
Moving out of a Haunted House? Here are some suggestions.
   Recently I responded to the following question: We are moving out of a house that we know has a ghost in it. How do we make sure nothing follows us? What should we do?
  Margaret, manager of Inspired Ghost Trackers of Maryland, gave this good advice:  I don't think will follow you, but just to be on the safe side make sure you tell them that they can't follow you and they are not welcome to go. They must stay where they are. And, of course if they do follow you then you know who to call!

  Here are my suggestions: 
Typically ghosts stay at a place comfortable and familiar to them.
*Tell them not to follow you, and stay put, or better yet, tell them to move into the light.  
*Put sea salt just outside the. front door to block them from leaving.
*Picture yourself surrounded by white light and positive energy to act as a block to a ghost's negative energy.
*Finally, think positive thoughts when departing. Ghosts feed off negative energy, so don't give them anything to cling to.

How About a Spirited Ghost Tour of Historic Federal Hill? (Baltimore)


This week's blog is about a NEW GHOST WALK in Baltimore that I had a good part in developing with the Inspired Ghost Trackers. Basically, two of the team, Margaret and Ronda (our resident historian) were joined by Barry from the great Scarborough Fair B&B and me, to talk around and see what ghosts I encountered. Margaret and Ronda used scientific equipment and digital recorders to get confirmations, and Ronda verified deaths of people in places where I found ghosts. 
  Federal Hill, Baltimore has ghosts from the 1700s, 1800s, 1900s and 2000s- and I found some from each period, doing different jobs. It was quite an experience.  NOW- you can share in the experience and get tickets to hear the stories and experience the hauntings for yourself.
 I'll be on several of the tours, but Margaret and Ronda will be hosting most of them- and they've been investigating hauntings for a long time, and have great senses of humor, so it'll be fun and interesting. Hope you can join us. - More info about the tours follow in the story below from Main Street Federal Hill.
Happy Hauntings!   Rob 
How About a Spirited Ghost Tour of Historic Federal Hill?
With Halloween just around the corner, there are new “spooky” attractions popping up all over town.  This year, we recommend checking out the new Historic Federal Hill Ghost Tour, guaranteed to give you an unforgettable experience of this historic community. 
Barry Werner, co-owner of Scarborough Fair Bed & Breakfast (801 S. Charles St.), has teamed up with Inspired Ghost Tracking, a paranormal investigation group based in Jessup, MD, to provide the most diverse haunted tour in the area. “Science, technology, spirituality, and legend” are combined together to give participants a unique perspective as they walk through the streets of Federal Hill.
Rob Gutro, a medium, along with Inspired Ghost Tracking, conducted research throughout the neighborhood before the tour was developed. For example, they verified a spirit residing in The Book Escape (805 Light Street). So who knows? Maybe you’ll be the next to discover a spirit. Actually, encountering a spirit could be easier than you think! As Barry says, “This community is infused with as much history as it is with spirits of the dead.”
The tour lasts about an hour and is offered on Saturdays at 6 pm and 8:30 pm.  There is a 15-person limit per tour, so buy your tickets today!
