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). 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. In 2005, Rob's late puppy passed and inspired Rob to write his first book and enabled him to communicate with pets. Rob participates in private paranormal investigations, helps ghosts cross over, and has provided countless messages from people or pets as ghosts or spirits. He lived in a haunted house, too!

I had the busiest summer ever giving talks, making appearances and promoting my new book "Pets and the Afterlife." I've given talks and appeared at Pet Expos in Richmond, VA; Frederick, MD; and Winchester, MA. I've given talks about haunted cases with the Inspired Ghost Tracking Team, and opened for Medium Barb Mallon's Halloween event. I interviewed on many paranormal radio programs and Boston's WBZ-Newsradio!
I also took part in Pensacola, Florida's ParaCon and went to upstate New York for a dog rescue fundraiser for "Adirondack Save-a-Stray."
In 2015, I'm making appearances at Pet Expos in Washington, DC, New York City and the Boston area. I'm also giving talks to a kennel club, at a library and other places.
Here's info about my book: PETS AND THE AFTERLIFE by Rob Gutro: The loss of a pet is like the loss of a child to pet owners. The love we share with our pets never dies, and in a new book called "Pets and the Afterlife" by Rob Gutro, the author provides proof that our pets do communicate with us from the other side. Available in paperback and E-book, on Amazon.com and other outlets at: To order paperback of Kindle- click here
Remember to appreciate the simple things in life, from a good cup of coffee to a sunny day, to light traffic. It will really make a difference. For those grieving over the loss of a loved one in 2014 (whether person or pet), know that they will be with you from time to time to watch over you and help you make some decisions. People and pets in spirit do not want us to be sad, they want us to be happy, and appreciate our lives. They want us to live life to the fullest so we have no regrets when it is our time. So, make 2015 a wonderful year.

My Interview of Randy Russell Author of "The Ghost Will See You Now: Haunted Hospitals of the South"
This is part 1 of 3 of the Q&A with Randy.
I recommend picking up a copy of his book. It will really give you a different feel for walking into a hospital...
"The Ghost Will See You Now: Haunted Hospitals of the South"
BOOK SUMMARY: Organized as a state-by-state guide to known Southern hospital hauntings, The Ghost Will See You Now includes 40-plus ghost stories and lists of sightings at more than 160 haunted locations. In addition to the numerous hospital sightings, ghosts also haunt medical-care facilities as diverse as TB sanitariums, spas, dental clinics, treatment centers at historic forts, nursing homes, hospice centers, ambulances, hospital train cars, and an early-19th-century pharmacy in New Orleans. To Buy the Book on AMAZON: http://www.amazon.com/The-Ghost-Will-See-You/dp/0895876310
*Randy has authored several other fascinating books I've also read:
Ghost Dogs of the South, The Granny Curse and Other Ghosts and Legends from East Tennessee and Ghost Cats of the South!
Randy: Not really, if you mean interacting with the dead. I think the stronger influence was in working among the dying, rather than those already deceased. Certain areas of the Medical Center were definitely clouded with a heavy sense of foreboding.
Q: What perception of physical death and ghost investigations give you about the afterlife?
Oddly enough, I find a stronger sense of an afterlife among the living than I do from any perception of physical death. Yes, physical death is real. Yes, it will happen to each one of us. If there is an afterlife beyond the bounds of this earthly realm, that’s cool. I’m all for it.
But what I know of the afterlife is found in the experiences of the living. My research takes place among the living, collecting in detail the true experience (senses, feelings and understandings) of a living person who encounters a ghost… or who in any number of ways interacts with and/or communicates with a dead person. My own experiences with ghosts are limited to a few.
Q: Why do you think so many stayed behind in hospitals instead of "haunting" their homes and places familiar to them?
Many ghosts haunt the location of their deaths. These are ghosts in general who have lost contact with their loved ones and their homes. Trauma and fear, confusion and pain, isolation and helplessness all contribute to a less than ideal moment of passing from living to dead. The transition is, to put it simply, an unhappy one. This would tends to create a ghost, and perhaps a ghost of some discontent.
But I think you make a good point, Rob. I’m sure many people who have died in a hospital (or on their way to a hospital) are likely to haunt other locations of their lives. Some ghosts travel. Some ghosts don’t. Some of the ghosts in THE GHOST WILL SEE YOU NOW are the nurses and doctors who worked in a particular haunted hospital.
Q: Do you think that the majority of the hospital haunts you wrote about were residual (i.e. like an emotional thumbprint of events that keep running over and over) or intelligent (where the ghosts could communicate and interact with the living)?
Let me say that I’m not convinced that an emotional thumbprint runs over and over on its own. I simply do not believe a ghost falls in the woods when no one is there to see or hear it. When people, the right people perhaps, are present, I do think some ghosts fall in the same place and in the same way without attempting further, if any, communication with the living. My personal belief is that a ghost activity of any sort only occurs in the presence of the living.
That said, the living don’t have to understand (or appreciate) a ghostly activity at all. The audience of a ghost performance may not even notice. Still, it is my belief the audience is a requirement for the performance to occur. A true ghost experience, as I define it for my work, takes place between the living and the dead. Solely and, well, souly.

They can leave you signs like their favorite song playing on the radio, or a coin with the year of their birth,death, or some other life event. Flowers, a phone call with no one on the other end. There are a whole host of things they can do.
|Sweet Caroline getting good care|
Katrina took her infant daughter to the doctor to investigate a high temperature. It seems that she was influenced to go to that degree from the spirit of her grandma- and be extra-cautious. That cautiousness turned out to be necessary.
Caroline went into the hospital on Dec. 22 with a temperature and doctors discovered she had a bacterial infection in her blood and needs antibiotics, so they kept her in the hospital over Christmas.
I told my friend Carol (Katrina's mom, Caroline's grandma) - "At least the doctors found something important enough to ensure she's getting the care she needs. In fact, it's because your mom's spirit helped them find it. Your mom is right there with her."
A BIRTHDAY APPEARANCE - Last month, on Tom's birthday, I told him that his late friend Ed would be around. Well, he found a penny and it was dated 1996, the year that Ed passed away. That was a confirmation from Ed that he was indeed around, just as your late relatives (people and pets) are around during birthdays, anniversaries and holidays.
TWO SCENTS IN HOLIDAY GREETINGS- Our friend Beth said on Hanukkah, "I just smelled my dad....weird! He's been gone for 4 years. It was real, (the smell) did not know to cook a favorite meal. We cooked what would have been his favorite breakfast!"
Beth's friend Tammy also got a visit from her mother-in-law. Tammy said "That happened to us yesterday. We were making her homemade peanut butter cookies there she was. It was Richard's momma's perfume. . Weird feeling. "
You can find more information about the signs spirits can give in my book "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead": SUMMARY: Follow Rob on a treasure-hunt-style journey in Virginia as he and others try to explain what appear to be random and obscure words, signs and symbols from a spirit, that all wind up being intensely personal to the spirit.Explore the science behind how they communicate. Learn how to receive their messages, where they appear, and important messages in how to live your life. Rob takes you into cemeteries, battlefields, and historic places. You’ll see what happens to victims of suicide and murders, and how infants and animals pass messages to the living.

I was listening to one of my favorite Christmas music CDs, and heard Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers singing "(I'll be Home) With Bells On" and it reminded me of the one year I wrote up the lyrics to the song and sang it with my mom and dad (who have since passed). After my brothers and their significant others departed for the day, I took a tape player (yes, tape in 1996) and put it on the living room table once the dessert dishes were cleared. I handed them the sheet of lyrics and played the tape. We all "attempted" to sing it - and although it wasn't a stellar on-key performance, it was fun and memorable.
This month, when the song came on, I could hear my parents singing in the background and I felt they joined me in the car. Spirits are around us, especially on the holidays.
As an extra, I'm sharing the video of the song here.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy New Year, Happy Ramadan- whatever you're celebrating - celebrate life and spirit!

On Saturday, Dec. 20, Santa brought our little 11 year old black and tan, mini-dachshund foster dog named Mack, to his forever home. We had been fostering little Mack for about 2 months through Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue.
His new parents adopted him yesterday after we did a home visit, checked references and brought Mack to their home. They have two other dachshunds who are both younger and very well cared for.
We've grown fond of the little guy, as we do with our foster dogs, but it's more important that the go to a good home so we can continue helping save more little guys and girls.
On Dec. 7, we took Mack to get his picture with Santa and tell Santa what he'd like for Christmas. We're thankful that Santa was able to come through. We're very excited that Mack got what he asked Santa for this year- a forever home!

Radiolab, with Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich, is a radio show and podcast weaving stories and science into sound and music-rich documentaries.
Radio Lab presented a podcast about a haunted house, that you may enjoy hearing about a house with some paranormal activity....
ABOUT THE PODCAST Dennis Conrow was stuck. After a brief stint at college, he’d passed most of his 20’s back home with his parents, sleeping in his childhood room. And just when he finally struck out on his own, fate intervened. He lost both his parents to cancer. So Dennis was left, back in the house, alone. Until one night when a group of paranormal investigators showed up at his door and made him realize what it really means for a house, or a man, to be haunted.

|Gettysburg National Cemetery|
WHAT IS GETTYSBURG NATIONAL PARK?
Gettysburg National Park is managed by the National Park Service and has a great museum with countless artifacts found on the battlefields, and monuments erected to every regiment of Union and Confederate soldiers placed over miles of countryside. For the National Park Service Website (hours, info, tours, directions): http://www.nps.gov/gett/index.htm
|The location of the Gettysburg Address|
CASUALTIES: Between 46,000 and 51,000 soldiers from both armies were casualties in the three-day battle.
|A Confederate Soldier Walks the Grounds|
GHOSTLY ENCOUNTERS: As a Medium, I sense energy from people who passed and can communicate with them (if they're intelligent hauntings). During my recent trip to Gettysburg, PA- the emotional energy left behind from the soldiers going into battle was overwhelming and gave me a whopping headache. The battlefields are said to be some of the most haunted areas in the state.
|Many unidentified bodies buried here|

Roberta Grimes is currently on a book tour, promoting her book called "The Fun of Staying in Touch" and I had a chance to interview her about it and how it came to be. Here are the questions and answers.
You can find her book on AMAZON.COM at: http://www.amazon.com/The-Fun-Staying-Touch-Contact-ebook/dp/B00N9IYIDA
Her website is: http://robertagrimes.com/
1) I'd like to give readers an idea of the person that is Roberta Grimes.
Tell me about yourself, where you grew up, what you wanted to do for a career...
I grew up in Massachusetts, always expecting to be an attorney, and my career has been in advising small businesses. Nevertheless, when I was eight and again at the age of twenty I had extraordinary experiences of light which started me on a search to understand reality. It has been a consuming hobby! While I have had a conventional life as a wife (of 42 years), a mother (of 3), and a grandmother (of 5), I have spent my every spare minute researching, writing, and speaking about the glorious greater reality of which this universe is a part, and the beyond-wonderful certainty that our minds are eternal.
2) When did you learn that you had the ability to get messages from those who passed?
I'm not a medium, but rather I am a serious researcher - I have spent decades reading nearly 200 years of abundant and consistent communications from the dead, most of them received before 1950. When combined with quantum physics and consciousness research, they tell a compelling and amazingly consistent story!
3) Do you work as a medium full-time? or is that a part-time thing?

Listen at night when it's quiet, acknowledge small touches, or little cat feet on your bed at night. Pets send us signs in so many ways. Just know the love we share with them is energy that binds us together between the living and the afterlife.
