The Woman in Blue from Montpelier Mansion

In my book "Ghosts and Spirits: Insights from a Medium"  http://tinyurl.com/caa8jk8 You'll find my investigation of the Montpelier Mansion in Laurel, Maryland with the Inspired Ghost Tracking Group inspiredghosttracking.webs.com/.
Ronda and Rob both sensed the Woman in the Blue Dress
  There were a number of ghosts that still linger in the house and one in particular was seen by me, my friend and medium Troy Cline, and Ronda Dixon. Ronda had the first encounter with the woman years before when Ronda was working there doing needlepoint. She sensed that someone else was in the upstairs bedroom with her, looked quickly and saw the bottom of a light blue dress worn by a woman of the 1800s.

  During the investigation of Montpelier later with Inspired Ghost Tracking, both myself and Troy sensed the same woman. She didn't stay in a fixed place, and she actually said something to both of us, which made us realize that this was an intelligent haunt.
  The woman had lived on the property before, and loved the house so much she didn't want to leave. She showed me how she would walk up or down the stairs to the main doors to greet people. She showed me that one door, now considered a back door, was once connected to a driveway where horses and carriages would pull up and guests would arrive. It was at that door that Ronda, and Tom (also of the Inspired Ghost Tracking Group) would get a physical sign of the Lady in light blue.
  To read the full story about the Lady in Light Blue at the Montpelier Mansion, and the mysterious gentleman ghost that both Troy and I saw standing silently in one room, check out my book "Ghosts and Spirits: Insights from a Medium" by Rob Gutro.
  Let me know if you encounter either of these ghosts whenever you visit!

Great Paranormal Fiction Novel: Grave Peril

I  recently read  a great book by Jim Butcher about a modern-day wizard who lives in Chicago,
and is a paranormal investigator. The book is one in a large series apparently, so I can't wait to get more of them. It features Harry Dresden who is assisted by his religious friend Michael Carpenter, a knight of the cross, who wields a sword supposedly with power from Heaven called Amoracchius. 
    Together in this book, the deal with the ghost of a evil wizard that had previously caused them problems while living and has come back. The characters are likeable, the story moves along quickly, and Harry and Michael get into so many jams you'd think they couldn't possibly get through them. 
   For anyone into the paranormal, this is a must read. Can't wait to read the rest of them!

THE SMUDGING CEREMONY: REMOVE BAD ENERGY WITH SAGE SMOKE

The following was provided to me by Kathy Schueler - about how to smudge and rid your home of bad energy: 

THE SMUDGING CEREMONY: REMOVE BAD ENERGY WITH SAGE SMOKE

Some of you want to know how to perform a cleansing ceremony with the use of burning sage, also known as "smudging".

A smudge stick is a dried and bundled plant. One can also use loose leaves in smudging, but before we get to the particulars of such a ceremony it will help to have an understanding of the origins of this sacred practice and how it will cleanse, heal, and consecrate an energy field, or thing, or space.

The Origins and History of Smudging:

People commonly credit smudging as being a Native American practice, but the use of rising smoke in spiritual rituals has been practiced across many cultures for thousands of years. The ancient Hindu texts reveal this was practiced 6,000 years ago with the burning of incense. Smoke purification was performed in Egypt, with the burning of aromatic resins for religious ceremonies. It was practiced in Babylonia, Greece, Rome, Japan, Tibet, China, among the ancient Hebrews, and among indigenous tribal cultures around the world, with the native tribes of North America being only a portion. Catholic and Orthodox Christianity, which are an amalgam of pagan beliefs and practices, use incense in religious ceremonies, adapted from the pagan rituals popular when the Christian theocracy was legalized by the pagan-turned-Christian, Roman Emperor Constantine, in 325 AD.

So the use of smoke to purify in a spiritual way is not exclusive to the Native American tradition, although we have them to thank for the wonderful and deeply spiritual practice of burning sage and other sacred plants as a purification practice. This tradition is a very beautiful gift and the most effective method commonly used in spiritual cleansing ceremonies today.

How it Works to Cleanse and Purify:

Smudging is an intrinsic part of shamanism, the world’s oldest medicine. Shamans recognize that every form of life on this planet has a spiritual purpose and a sacred consciousness. They know that plants have invaluable healing properties. Human animals, as it turns out, are not the top rung of creation’s ladder even though we think we are because we have big brains and walk on two feet. All beings, whether plant, animal, or mineral are divine and have sacred right to life; all have something to offer to the manifest “other.”

To approach a smudging ritual and to be effective in cleansing away negative energy, one must be reverent of the plant being used and even the energies being cleansed. All energy is divine at its core, whether Light or Dark. Respect for all life is essential to any smudging that you undertake. If you cannot feel reverent about this sacred practice, don’t do it. Find someone who is spiritually qualified and energetically prepared to do it for you.

Although many different plants can be used for smudging, indigenous American tribes consider four plants to be especially sacred: sage, sweetgrass, tobacco, and cedar. Each plant is considered to have a special function and this can vary by tribe and tradition. While sage is used for purification, sweetgrass is used to bring in positive energies, and its smoke is considered to carry prayers to the Creator.

When to Use Smudge:

-If you are feeling down, negative, stuck, or in a spiritual low place, smudging is an excellent way to change things for the better.
-When your house, your property, or any place or space has been exposed to heavy and negative energies, or painful experiences and even illness, they should be cleansed with smudge.
-When you move into a new location, it should be smudged to cleanse the psychic imprints of previous occupants.
-If you feel the presence of bad energy in your living quarters, or if a solitary room makes you feel bad or uneasy by being in there, it’s time to smudge.
-If you want to create a protective barrier against outside negative influences, such as neighborhood issues, it’s time to smudge.
-If you want to make your prayers stronger and if you want to feel more connected to Spirit, it’s time to smudge.
-If your vehicle has been in a fender-bender or you’ve had a close call in your car, smudge it, inside and out, to remove negative energetic imprints that can attract more negative experiences.
-Cleanse second-hand items with smudge to remove psychic imprints of previous owners.
-You can consecrate and energetically charge your garden by smudging.
-You should smudge to clean yourself and your space before engaging in any psychic contact or spiritual ceremony.
-You can smudge anytime just to connect to a state of spiritual clarity and harmony! Remember, you “clear the air” in your life with the help of sacred smoke!

Sacred sage and other wonderful herbs are Earth Mother’s gift, and once you understand how important a tool they are in your own spiritual welfare you will never be without a supply on hand. They are a fundamental part of your spiritual first-aid kit, given by Creation to heal wounds upon the Soul.

AN EVENING OF MESSAGES FROM SPIRIT
Saturday, July 6
6pm to 9pm 
Chantilly, Virginia
Eventbrite - An Evening of Messages from Spirit
Join medium Barb Mallon for a very special evening of inspiration, validations, and messages from loved ones on the other side!

This event is much like Barb's larger mediumship events; however, instead of an audience of 50 or more, only 25 seats will be available. This gives participants a much better chance of having their own special reading.   
TO GET TICKETS TO BARB's EVENT :  http://www.eventbrite.com/event/6609714835?ref=ebtn#

This very intimate setting is a wonderful way to experience the process of mediumship through possibly your own reading or through the readings of others*.

Rob Gutro, author and budding medium, will begin the evening with a small talk and introduction. Barb will then relay messages from the other side to those members of the audience she's pulled to. She finishes with a small Q & A session and also possible messages from her students in attendance.

Barb strives to get to as many members of the audience that she can get to* during this event; however, keep in mind that those spirit people with the most dominant energy are the ones who will be able to come through. While she will do her best to keep the readings equal lengths, some spirit people have more to say than others. Some readings may be 5 minutes, while others may be a bit longer. Participants will have the opportunity to ask Barb questions during the Q&A session following the readings, and then meet with Barb and her students after the event.

This event will benefit a local animal rescue group Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA). Bring a bag of dog or cat food, warm blankets, treats or toys and get $10.00 OFF of your admittance fee! *Be sure to register accordingly when checking out!

PROGRAM:

6:00 - 6:30 - Introduction/Talk by Author & Medium, Rob Gutro

6:30 - 8:00 - Audience readings by Barb Mallon/Q&A/student readings

*Attending a demonstration does not guarantee a reading. Please be open to the process and experience when attending. The audience members who are meant to receive messages from their loved ones in spirit, will.
Because this is a public demonstration, no recording devices or camcorders permitted for privacy reasons.

Spirits and Child Prodigies, and Reincarnation

Kieran Williamson

Our spirits get "recycled." It's true. We keep coming back until we achieve perfection, and in the course of a day, think about the number of people who are far from perfect... they'll be coming back again!  (Like the person who cut you off in traffic, or a rude neighbor, or a nasty relative). Why? Because we all have lessons to learn.  On a related note, you'll know if your child has come back if they have a talent.

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.
http://abcnews.go.com/Primetime/Technology/story?id=894217&page=3

- 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=1
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.

So, what is the definition of a child prodigy? 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 a couple of years ago: Kieran Williamson from the U.K. At just 9 years old, has incredible passion for two things in life; football and painting.
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..... See his work at his website: http://www.kieronwilliamson.com/

At five years old he began painting like an impressionist painter. When you look at his works, you'll be amazed. 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 (now he's 9)- it had to come from somewhere else, and that was likely a past lifetime.
