Honor a Spirit with a Living Tribute!

Luna's memorial
This is a wonderful way to honor someone who passed- create a special place in their honor and / or mark it with a  plant that will grow, bloom and provide beauty to the world that reminds you of them. My friend Carla Kis-Major​ in Australia did this in memory of her beloved dog, Luna who passed.This is a great lesson from Carla, who knows that Luna's spirit is still with her and visits from time to time. Do something positive to honor the spirits of the loved ones you lost as Carla has done.
   One thing that I like to do for people who have lost either people or pets is to donate to an animal rescue in the name of the spirit. That way, they "live on" and their name helps save the lives of dogs, cats, horses, etc.

What is an "Old Soul"?

What is an old soul?    Sometimes you'll get a sense when you meet a young person, or adopt a pet that they're wise beyond their years. That's because they're likely an "old soul." An old soul is someone who has lived before and has come back (reincarnated). We all come back. 
   Sometimes, though, you can tell by looking in someone's eyes that they have lived before and are an "old soul."  
   Such was the case with my first dog, Buzz Wyatt, who passed away in a tragic accident on Feb. 22, 2005 when his leash opened and he was killed by a car. When he was alive I would look into his eyes and knew that he was an old soul. In fact, many people told me that whenever they met him. People would tell me Buzz lived before and came here for a short time to help teach me about unconditional love. I totally agree. He was incredibly wise for a puppy, and I don't just mean learning things- I mean reading my emotions. 
  My husband's late partner was an old soul. He had had many previous existences, already learned a lot, and was only meant to be here for a very short time this go-around.  That may explain why he has been able to punch through to reach us while only being on the other side for such a short amount of time.



a book worth reading
    Another way to tell if you or someone else is an old soul is if you are attracted to things in the past you have not been exposed to.  For example, my husband is an amateur historian on the Tudor period of England. He was drawn to it, and feels as if he had lived in England during that time. I have recollections of living in the 1870s and 1880s in the U.S. southwest. In fact, when I visited Tombstone, Arizona for the FIRST TIME in the early 1990s (before the movies came out about them), I oddly knew where to find certain buildings that still stand from the 1870s. There was no way I could have known about them or their locations unless I had been there before in a previous life. 
    There are a number of websites that list characteristics in people that can identify them as "old souls" like being non materialistic, you see the bigger picture, you are thankful, you're spiritual not religious (we grow from religions and become spiritual), you're a bit of a loner. Those are just some qualities mentioned. But if you're drawn to something or somewhere in the past and you've never been there, then it's likely you've lived there before.

Songs Tell you Spirits Are With You!

One of the many ways that spirits can communicate with you are through songs. You may hear a song that they loved and / or used to sing, or a song that reminds you of them. When you hear it, you need to know that that particular person or pet's spirit is with you (yes, songs remind people of pets).
   On March 23, while I was at work, I was listening to a radio station over the internet, and Ray Price's song "For the Good Times" came on. As a child, I remember my mother singing that song out loud when she was in the kitchen making dinners. She loved that song. As the song played I realized that my mom's spirit was with me and it made me smile to know she was visiting (my dad came in, too, but as he did in life, he stood quietly in the background).
  So, the next time you hear a song and it makes you think of a loved one that passed, acknowledge that they are there with you. It's not a coincidence. They want to let you  know that they're around.
  As a tribute to my mom, I'm posting the You Tube link to Ray Price singing that song mom loved to sing. Hope you enjoy it, and listen closely for musical signs from YOUR loved ones! - Rob

A Random Review on Amazon I Like

It's really encouraging that so many people write me every week and ask questions, allow me to help in some way, or
tell me that my book "Pets and the Afterlife" has helped comfort them or shown them how their own pets in spirit have communicated. 
  Here's a recent one sentence review of the book on Amazon that means so much. Thank you for letting me know that the book helped you, Jane - I'm glad that the book was able to offer you some comfort and peace. Big hugs to you. Rob
5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars, February 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
After losing a very special dog, this book was a god send.
*****************************************
The loss of a pet is like to 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.
"I wrote this book to bring comfort to people who lost a pet and explain how our dogs and cats give us messages from the other side," Gutro said. "I'm a dog dad who lost two of my own beloved dogs and both have communicated with me, just as your pets are trying to get messages to you."
Rob Gutro is a dog owner, dog rescue volunteer, medium/paranormal investigator for Inspired Ghost Tracking of Md. and scientist. In Rob's third book, "Pets and the Afterlife," readers will learn how dogs, cats, horses and some birds have the intelligence and ability to send signs to the living after they pass. They will take comfort in knowing our pets are around us from time to time in spirit and recognize the signs they give us.
In addition, readers will learn about the different levels of intelligence that a pet develops and how they are used to communicate signs to the living after the pet passes away. Rob shares scientific studies that prove our pets emotions and personalities. Read the science behind why living pets can sense entities. The author even takes the readers on a paranormal investigation where one of his dogs helps solve a mysterious canine mystery. Learn how our pets in spirit wait for us when it’s our time, what a pet’s ashes can do, the difference between ghosts and spirits and the science behind the energy they use to communicate with us.
"The book also features my dog Buzz who was killed in an accident as a puppy, and became the world's greatest canine communicator in the afterlife," Gutro said. Rob's childhood dogs recently also made an appearance as his mother passed away.
Three of the chapters are written by well-known mediums whose own dogs returned and communicated with them to assure them they were at peace. The book features medium Barb Mallon, Ruthie Larkin the Beantown Medium and Troy Cline. You'll read how Rob's dog Sprite passed and came to all three of these mediums with similar messages and how he revealed his presence to many people in the form of butterfly.
Read an amazing story of how a ghost dog rescued a young girl who grew up to work for dog rescues, and how Rob encountered a tiny ghostly dog in a famous museum in England.

Fascinating Book, Amazing Clairvoyant: "My Passport Says Clairvoyant"

Our friend Ruthie Larkin, known as the "Beantown Medium" in the Boston area recommended that we read a book about the life of a clairvoyant from Holland named M. B. Dykshoorn called "My Passport Says Clairvoyant."
   The book was amazing.   Mr. Dykshoorn had an amazing ability to see things beyond the visible. The book explains how he struggled with his gift as a child - as people didn't believe him, questioned him, and he was even thought a troublemaker because he could "see" things that happened elsewhere in people's lives. Children today with this gift or a gift of mediumship are also often mistreated or reprimanded when they're simply telling the truth in what they see, hear and feel beyond the realm of the physical. People can learn from this and acknowledge their children's gifts.
    Mr. Dykshoorn worked with police in Europe and America to find missing persons, re-enact murder cases (where he could see what happened to victims from their perspective - including the layout of the rooms they were in when murdered) , and tell people about how their life would turn out. Mr. Dykshoorn became famous throughout Europe in the late 1940s and 1950s. He and his wife moved to Australia and finally to the U.S. In fact, he was so amazing that he was awarded a police badge in Raleigh, N.C. for helping solve murders. (Holland actually stamped his passport "Clairvoyant," - thus the name of the book).
    What's fascinating is that in the Netherlands, being a psychic was believed and welcomed. Once he moved to Australia and the U.S., people doubted him. However, he persevered and showed them his amazing talent.
    He was a psychic and clairvoyant (That's different from what Rob does- talking with dead people and pets).  He actually cured people of diseases by taking on the symptoms and purging them from himself (I think it has to do with   energy transference).
  He and his wife passed in October 2011 in a fire. Although her father’s gift remained intact until his death, their daughter Helga Dykshoorn said he had difficulty making predictions about those closest to him. For this reason, she said that he could not have foreseen the fire that ravaged his apartment. 
  An article in the NY Times in October, 2011, contained some stories from people Mr. Dykshoorn had met. Here's a paragraph from the article: He had even performed medical miracles, guests were told. One man spoke of the creaky knee that Mr. Dykshoorn had remedied. Then there was the woman with the brain tumor, given 10 years to live, she said, but still plodding along 35 years later. After a visit with Mr. Dykshoorn, she recalled, she returned to her doctors, who were perplexed to learn that the tumor had virtually disappeared. 

  The book "My Passport Says Clairvoyant" and was published in 1974 by Hawthorn Books Inc./New York and authored by Russell H. Felton.  This book is well worth the effort to track down!

Thanks to Haunted Salem: The Legend of the Haunted Dutchman

Thanks to the great Facebook called "Haunted Salem" - I'm republishing their story about the legend of the Flying Dutchman. I've always been fascinated by this legend, having grown up in the northeast, and wanted to share it with you, too.  Please visit and like the Haunted Salem Facebook page, too! There are lots of interesting things from a town known for the infamous Witch Trials (which were all just false hysteria).  Enjoy this legend! - Rob
 

What is the Flying Dutchman Legend?
A ship that has been cursed to sail the ocean for eternity, The Flying Dutchman is considered by sailors to be one of the worst possible omens. In some stories anyone who sets eyes on it will die a horrible death. In others the crew of The Flying Dutchman will try to give letters to any ship that hails it. These letters are always addressed to people who have long been dead and touching any of the letters will bring you great misfortune. The captain of the Flying Dutchman is believed to be Captain Benard Fokke who was known for his impressive sailing speed, so much so it was believed that he was in league with the devil.

There have been many theories about the origin of The Flying Dutchman. In most cases the crew and captain of the ship were guilty of a horrible crime which lead to them being punished by condemning them to sail the sea forever. In other tales it is a dutch ship that was lost off The Cape of Good Hope in 1641. Sightings of the ship date back to the 17th century but 19th and 20th century sightings claim that the ship was surrounded by a ghostly light. One documented sighting was by Prince George of Wales when he was teenager and on a three year voyage:

"At 4 a.m. the Flying Dutchman crossed our bows. A strange red light as of a phantom ship all aglow, in the midst of which light the masts, spars and sails of a brig 200 yards distant stood out in strong relief as she came up on the port bow, where also the officer of the watch from the bridge clearly saw her, as did the quarterdeck midshipman, who was sent forward at once to the forecastle; but on arriving there was no vestige nor any sign whatever of any material ship was to be seen either near or right away to the horizon, the night being clear and the sea calm. Thirteen persons altogether saw her … At 10.45 a.m. the ordinary seaman who had this morning reported the Flying Dutchman fell from the fore topmast cross trees on to the top gallant forecastle and was smashed to atoms."

Q&A: What About the Afterlife, Heaven and Hell?

This is the final Tuesday Q&A of a question that I received via email, and my response. 

5. I believe that, in the afterlife, there is no "heaven" and no "hell". What we experience after death has a lot to do with what we believe while on earth and, if at death, a person believes in hell and that he or she belongs there that reality will be created by that person. 
I agree. "Heaven" and "Hell" are man-made ideals. Joining the energies that run through the universe and crossing that barrier from Earth (into the light) can be thought akin to a "heaven" or paradise if you will.  "Hell" is actually being stranded on earth as a ghost, where you can't communicate with the spirits- it's like torture for eternity. 

You don't have to believe in a religion to believe in the afterlife. It's all about energy. 

Energy cannot be destroyed only transformed, and our memories, personality and consciousness become an entity of energy after our physical bodies die. Then we make a choice to stay here on Earth as a ghost or cross into the light- passing the Earthly barrier to join the energies of the cosmos (you can call it heaven, paradise, valhalla, whatever you wish).

VIdeo: Top 5 Scariest Ouija Board Experiences 2015

This is good advice to all - A Ouija board is NOT a game. It can open doors to dangerous things. Rob


Published by DorsetGhost:  Published on Mar 11, 2015 -
Top  5 of the most scariest stories surrounding the Ouija board Gone wrong

Experiences where some have almost died when opening up the portal of
hell. The most creepiest Ouija Board video you will watch as all these
stories are supposed to be true, not fiction. This Shows you how dark
and scary the Ouija board really is. It's not a game, it's not meant to
be fun, and when you open up the portal, you will find out how dangerous
the Ouija board really is.
   Most paranormal researchers advise against the casual use of the Ouija
board, it can lead to a doorway to unknown dimensions. “The board itself
is not dangerous, but the form of communication that you are attempting
often is," says Ghost researcher Dale Kaczmarek of the Ghost Research
Society. "Most often the spirits whom are contacted through the Ouija
are those whom reside on 'the lower astral plane.' These spirits are
often very confused and may have died a violent or sudden death; murder,
suicide, etc. Therefore, many violent, negative and potentially
dangerous conditions are present to those using the board. Often times
several spirits will attempt to come through at the same time but the
real danger lies when you ask for physical proof of their existence! You
might say, 'Well, if you're really a spirit, then put out this light or
move that object!' What you have just done is simple, you have 'opened a
doorway' and allowed them to enter into the physical world and future
problems can and often do arise."

Dorset Ghost said : We personally received a lot of messages about a person's house being haunted and most times that house has only been haunted after a " fun" Ouija board session took place, so please be careful.

caught during our ghost hunts.  Please follow them on twitter at https://twitter.com/Dorsetghost

Diedinhouse: Website/Service that tells you if someone died in your house

Many of us do not want to live in a haunted house. Now there's a business in Canada that helps prevent that from happening and it's called "Diedinhouse.com" 

  Diedinhouse.com's website that tells you if someone died in your house
 SOURCE: http://www.ecanadanow.com/curiosity/2014/08/15/diedinhouse-ghoulish-website-that-tells-you-if-someone-died-in-your-house/ 

Some people are very keen on matters of the macabre especially death. This sensitivity is so much that some buyers might eschew the rental or purchase of a dwelling place if they knew someone had died in it. This is particularly the case in places where a suicide or homicide have occurred. However, the disclosure of a death on the premises is not legally defined as a “material” fact which must be revealed to buyers as is required with other issues such as mold or termite infestation. It is possible for a heinous act to have been performed in a home only days before someone buys it unaware of its history. 

Source:  USAToday story
For $11.99, a search on his website — which was a year in the making — will dig through multiple sources to see if anyone spent their last days at your address. Coast to Coast AM says the site scours millions of records. (In Texas, for example, you might want to avoid the Fort Worth home where a drunk woman hit a homeless man with her car and left him to die in her garage.)

Realtors initially weren't fans of Condrey's business, since it's harder to sell so-called "stigmatized properties."
Condrey says a death on-site can reduce a property's value by 15% to 25%. But lately, he says, some realtors have been coming around, even using his site to run their own searches.

Have you Explored the Haunted Banff Springs Hotel in Canada?



Looking for a beautiful, and possibly haunted place? The
Banff Springs Hotel is a luxury hotel that was built during the 19th century as one of Canada's grand railway hotels, being constructed in Scottish Baronial style and located in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada. The hotel was opened to the public on June 1, 1888. Today, the Fairmont Banff Springs resort hotel is owned by OMERS and operated by Fairmont Hotels and Resorts of Toronto.

Thanks to Haunted Salem for this post: Banff Springs Hotel is a grand hotel in Canada that was built in 1888 and is still open today. There are rumors that this is the hotel that inspired The Shining, but that has been proved false. There are numerous ghosts that are said to haunt the place, such as…

Sam, an employee who died in the 70’s. He supposedly talks to guests and even helps them with their bags and on the elevator. However, he vanishes if you try to tip him.

A bride who got married at the hotel. She died after a candle lit her dress on fire; she panicked and fell down the stairs pictured. She is said to be seen wandering the hotel in her wedding dress. Guests have also reported feeling cold or chills while they are on the staircase.

A family who was murdered in room 873 by their father. Since the murder the room has been closed but the ghosts still wander around there; reports such as vacationers waking up in the middle of the night feeling paralyzed as well as seeing fingerprints on their mirror that won’t come off are supposedly the room 873 ghosts.
