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.

A Ghost in an Annapolis Building


 
Audubon Store in Annapolis
   Since I was a kid I've been able to sense Earth bound ghosts or spirits who have crossed over - and I always get a light headache in the back side of my head whenever they're around. Entities are energy and they give me an "energy overload," thus, the headache.  Anyway, while a friend was visiting, my husband and I walked around Annapolis, Md. and I ran into some residents who still live there after one or two hundred years....
  For those reading this from outside of Maryland, Annapolis (on the Severn River, connected to Chesapeake Bay) is the capital of the U.S. state of Maryland, as well as the county seat of Anne Arundel County.  The city was actually used the temporary capital of the United States in 1783−1784! The city was founded in 1649, so there were bound to be some Earth-bound ghosts... and there were.
  While walking around the quaint downtown area, we turned onto Maryland Avenue. It was there that I encountered on man who continues to linger there 80 years after he died.

THE MAN FROM THE 1930s - 
the ghost appeared similar to the man in the middle
   One store we went into was the building that houses a store for the Audubon Society.   As soon as I walked up to the front of the building I got my ghost-indicating headache. The store was on the first floor of this multi-story building, on the left side of the entrance.
  The building appeared to be an old apartment building with shops on the first floor and a doorway between the shops that go into a narrow hallway/lobby with an elevator.
  It was in that hallway/lobby I sensed a larger man, dressed in a 1930s suit with a hat. He passed from a stroke, but this was his building. He owned it. He wanted it and still wants it. My hubby also sensed a presence there as well.
   The ghost was stubborn, and didn't seem to care that he was separated from his other loved ones who died decades ago. Obviously he was materialistic in life and maintained that personality (as we do) in death. Sadly, he was so materialistic that his family doesn't matter as much as owning that building. So, we let him be and walked on. There are some Earth-bound ghosts that simply can't be convinced they need to move on, and if he hasn't learned that in 80 years of lingering in that apartment lobby, he'd likely be hard to convince.

What Happens When We Die? Energy!!!

I've learned a lot about what happens when our physical bodies die, since I've been able to communicate with those who have passed.
  I'm also a scientist - a meteorologist, who believes that science helps explain what happens when we die and it all centers on energy. 
   As I mention in my books, "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead," and "Ghosts and Spirits: Insights from a Medium," we have energy coursing through our bodies.
   Think about it. Our thoughts are little electrical impulses.
WHERE DO THE ELECTRICAL IMPULSES COME FROM?  - According to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the human brain contains about 100 billion neurons or nerve cells. Those cells have trillions of synapses or connections, and each connection transmits about one signal per second. Some connections (special ones) can send as many as 1,000 signals per second!
  MEASURING THE ENERGY IN OUR BRAINS - Doctors measure the electrical activity in our brains through the technique of Electroencephalography, also known as an EEG. An EEG records electrical activity along the scalp and measures the fluctuation of voltage fluctuations. The changes involtage happens within the neurons of the brain - basically, what happens when we think.  EEGs usually measure 20 to 40 minutes of the brain's spontaneous electrical activity.
    BIG DEAL. SO THERE'S ELECTRICITY IN THE BODY.  Yes, it is a big deal. There's also energy in the body as a result of blood pumping through the body, cells rebuilding and dying off, and the body in a constant state of activity. So, what happens to all of that energy after our physical body dies, and why does it have to go somewhere?
   THE LAW OF CONSERVATION OF ENERGY -In physics, the law of conservation of energy says that the total energy of an isolated system cannot change, it can only be changed from one form into another or transferred from one object to another.
   Although some other scientists (especially those who are not also mediums like me) discount this applying to ghosts, spirits or energy in the human body, I've come to understand that it DOES apply to the energy in the human (or animal) body. The Law also says that energy is conserved over time. Energy can change form; for instance, chemical energy can be converted to kinetic energy.
   HOW DOES THAT LAW APPLY TO PEOPLE? Consider the energy running through our bodies that I explained above. That energy has to go somewhere when our physical bodies die. It can't just "cease to exist." I've come to understand that that energy combines with our personality/consciousness/soul and makes a conscious choice to stay Earth-bound as a ghost (for various reasons) or crosses "into the light" into Heaven/joining the energy of the universe/Valhalla, etc. (call it what you will).
