Fascinating Book: My Son and the Afterlife by Elisha Medhus

I just finished reading a fascinating Book: My Son and the Afterlife by Elisha Medhus and Highly recommend it. The book is about the amazing and detailed communications from a Doctor's teenage son who took his own life. He is channeled through a medium who provides amazing detail about the afterlife and how it works.
-Several interesting things I've learned (that I thought may have been the case) that will change your life.
Most importantly, is that "god" or the source of all light is in EVERY living thing- Animals, humans, insects, plant life. All of them have a consciousness (of course it may be somewhat difficult to imagine plants with a consciousness, but scientific studies revealed that plants emit a faintly audible 'scream' when being cut or snapped). Regardless, all living things have a "SOUL." Period. Animals, like humans all have memories, emotions, knowledge, language (of their own) and personalities. - Darker personalities are just lesser levels of light.
-    If you've lost someone you'll want to read this as it really gives a great idea of the other side (and there are no "streets of gold" or any of that which you'll find in some religions). In fact, a person's religious beliefs here on Earth often prevent them from reaching higher levels of perfection on the other side. Makes sense. If people are so fixed in a belief, they shut themselves off from learning. Often times on Earth, that's exactly what happens to the religious fanatics - they can't see beyond their beliefs to see reality.
***ONE IMPORTANT THING- If you DON'T have an open mind, and think that your religion knows what the other side is, don't read this. NO religion really knows anything about the other side. It's people who died and communicate with the living that know what lies there. 
   As someone who has received messages from people and animals that have passed, I recommend this book.
  The book has really amazing dialogue between Erik (the son who passed) and his mom, Dr. Medhus. You'll WANT to read it.  Just read it with an open mind.- Rob

BOOK SUMMARY: LOVE KNOWS NO BOUNDARIES—NOT EVEN DEATH
Dr. Elisa Medhus never believed in life after death. As an accomplished physi­cian, she placed her faith in science. All of that changed after her son Erik took his own life and then reached out from the other side.

Intimate, heartbreaking, and illuminating, go on an incredible journey from grief and skepticism to healing and belief. Based on Medhus’s wildly popular blog, Channeling Erik, My Son and the Afterlife provides answers to the most universal questions of being human.

At once tragic and uplifting, Erik speaks from the other side with candor, wisdom, and depth as he describes his own experiences and provides new answers about the nature of souls, death, and the afterlife—answers that have the potential to change our lives forever.

What is Prayer? - Ghosts and Spirits

Today's blog focuses on "What is prayer," and it's relation to Earth-bound Ghosts and Spirits.

RULE #1:  You need not be religious to pray.

WHAT IS PRAYER?
Prayer of any kind is a focus of positive emotional energy that acts as a healing force. Any positive thoughts are healing energy. If you don't believe in a god or angels, saints, etc. then call upon your loved ones in spirit to share positive energy. 

HOW DOES PRAYER AFFECT DARK ENTITIES? - If you don't have to belong to a religon, then why are priests called to do exorcisms? 

ANSWER: The catholic religion told you so. The truth is that prayer of any kind is positive emotional energy. It's calling on love, light and all things that make negative entities weaker or powerless. 

BTW, ghosts and spirits don't usually possess people. Dark entities (or demons, which are life forms from other places) can try to take over people on occasion, but it's rare.

In the news: 'Ghost child' caught on camera by teens at Christmas dinner - or is it?


'Ghost child' caught on camera by teens at Christmas dinner - or is it?

The pair said the female 'ghost' had cuts to its head and sunken eyes

Two teenagers claim to have taken a picture of a ghost while they were out for a Christmas dinner.

Sophie Killip and Kayleigh Lomas, both 19, took a picture of the long tables and decorations decked out ready for a Christmas party.

But when they examined the snap an hour later they noticed a ghostly dark-haired child sitting at the end of the table.
The girl, who appeared to have cuts on her head, wore old fashioned clothes and seemed to be staring straight at the camera from sunken eyes.

"The table was just one down from us and nobody was sat there so we took a photo of the decorations because they were really nice," spooked Sophie, a student, said.


"There was nothing there at the time but when we looked back at the photo we couldn't believe it. It was pretty scary and I felt creeped out.

Great Book: Ghosts and Legends of the Carolina Coasts

I recently enjoyed the book "Ghosts and Legends of the Carolina Coasts" by Terrance Zepke. A friend of mine bought this for me while on vacation, and it's a great book! 
  The book contains encounters and legends from the coastal regions of North and South Carolina. It's nicely formatted and has nice illustrations in it, too.
  There were quite a number of stories that really stayed with me in this collection. One that I won't forget was about a Judge in Maine who accused a woman of being a witch (who may have had alzheimers or dementia). He not only accused her, he presided over her hearing, and readily sent her to death. She told him her foot and leg would come back from the grave and kick him after he died. It did. 
 - Although the judge moved to the Carolinas and was buried there, the mysterious outline of a foot appeared on his giant tombstone (several times as the first time, it was sandblasted off). There's a photo in the book of the outline of a leg and foot on the tombstone.
  So, whether you live in the Carolinas, visit them, or just want interesting ghost stories, this is a really good read.  - Rob

Thank you! Pets and the Afterlife in Top 20 Paranormal Books!

Wow. Today, January 9, 2016, my book "Pets and the Afterlife" reached the top 20 in paranormal books on Amazon Kindle.
   I've received many emails from readers from the U.S., Italy, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Mexico, Colombia, France and other countries who have said that the book has helped them understand how their pets are communicating with them from the other side, and how it has helped bring comfort.  That's exactly why I wrote the book.
   I also receive emails every week from grieving pet parents around the world. Fortunately, I've been able to connect with their pets and provide them messages. I don't do this for a living- I do this on my own time to help bring peace, comfort and understanding to everyone (like me) who lost a beloved pet.
  So, thank you for telling grieving pet parents about the "Pets and the Afterlife" book, and I hope this has brought you and them some comfort.
  Sincerely, Rob Gutro

Paredolia and Seeing "Paranormal" Things

One part of paranormal investigating is debunking things. One aspect of debunking is about disproving something that someone sees in a design or background. We do that when others do not see the image and / or there are no temperature changes, electrical discharges, or a medium doesn't sense anything. 
  There has to be some back up. What's interesting is that when you look at something, and someone tells you what they've seen, you can also envision the object there. Does that mean it's there? No.
  It's likely  Pareidolia. 
 
man on horseback?

What's Paredolia? It's a psychological phenomenon involving a stimulus (an image or a sound) wherein the mind perceives a familiar pattern of something where none actually exists.

Common examples are perceived images of animals, faces, or objects in cloud formations, the "man in the moon", the "moon rabbit", and hidden messages within recorded music played in reverse or at higher- or lower-than-normal speeds.


Earlier this week, my friend Scott in Ohio found an article and photo of a graveyard, where a person said he sees a man on a horse. 
Well, I didn't see it until I read the headline, and then I could "kind of" see it. I was making out an outline of what I think a man on a horse looks like in my mind while looking at the photo. So, no, I don't think there was a ghost in the photo. (Link to the story: http://news.yahoo.com/ghost-on-horseback-captured-in-chilling-graveyard-104358862.html?nf=1)
 
Seeing a face in a bathtub

However, that doesn't mean that ghosts don't appear in photos. We have lots of proof that they do- both in visible pictures and infrared pictures.

So, next time you look up in the sky and you see an "elephant" in the clouds, it's not the ghost of an elephant, but paredolia. Just use discretion!

What are Demons, Angels? What are possessions, exorcisms?

Recently I gave a talk about my thoughts on demons and angels and other things known in religious lore. I was pleased to hear someone being interview on Darknessradio.com who share the same feelings about these entities: that they are life from other places in the universe.

Yes, demons and angels are the spirits of beings that lived in other parts of the universe. Think about it. There are well over 6,000 exoplanets (planets in other solar systems). In fact, we've even recently discovered water on Mars and Pluto, as well as some of the moons in our own solar system. Water has the ability to contain and maintain life. So, it would be arrogant to think that we are the only planet in the cosmos with life on it.
Credit: dws4me on Twitter

WHAT ARE DEMONS? Demons are extra-terrestrial life forms that died and like people and pets, became spirit. They don't live in a place called hell. That place was created in mythology long before christianity began. Demons are life forms that don't know what humans and animals are- we look strange to them as they do to us. Think of them like wild animals that don't know if you're going to harm them, so they get defensive and hostile toward those on Earth they don't recognize - all out of fear.

WHAT ARE ANGELS? Angels, like demons are also from another place in the universe and are spirit, but are protective and helpful instead of fear-based. Angels are also higher spirits in terms of connection to the source of all energies and bring positive emotional energies. They also help, guide and protect every living thing, person or animal anywhere in the universe.


Q: If demons are possibly aliens then what do you think causes possessions or do you believe those are spirit attachments?

A:  Ghosts and demons, both being energy beings, have the ability to enter into a person who is emotionally and mentally weak - a depressed person, a child, or someone who has mental illness, because those people are less likely to resist. It's rare, but there are cases of possession.

Q: If demons are not anti-religious beings why does an exorcism work on them?
A: As for the religious side, exorcisms - they mostly work not because of the religion- but because priests and people couple their positive energies to dispel and force out the negative energy. It's all about energy - and positive energy can force negative energy out.

Religions and Spirituality- Ghosts and Spirits

Today we'll look at religion and spirituality. This is a serious issue because being too steadfast in a belief has caused people to remain Earthbound.   
(In an upcoming blog ( Jan. 23) I will explain what prayer really is, and how it works especially in terms of ghosts and spirits.)

RELIGIONS AND SPIRITUALITY
Most people use religion as a base to develop a faith. Then they grow from it. That's the way it should be, if you want to grow spiritually. Remember that religions were all conceived by mankind. Spirituality is the energies within and around us. 

That's not saying you can't belong to a religion and be spiritual. You can, although most people leave religions because of constraints.

CONSTRAINTS I ENCOUNTERED - As a former catholic, when I was growing up I was told that talking to the dead is actually talking to the "devil." (Baptist religions still believe this) That's ridiculous. It's also something that was discouraged because the churches couldn't control what you heard.
   Besides, I have no "evil motive" when I convey messages. They are messages from loved ones in spirit (people and pets). I don't know the people I get messages for and often never see them again.
*What's new in 2015: Britain's Psychic World newspaper in its July edition says there are "Major changes to Roman Catholic views as The Vatican says it is OK to talk to the Dead." - per Rev. Gino Concetti, chief theological commentator for the Vatican Italian journal. "L'Osservatore Romano".

DANGERS - As someone who has been able to communicate with ghosts and spirits since I was 13, I've heard a lot from people on the other side about how constraints of religion made their life and the lives of the people around them very unpleasant (during their time on Earth).  Often times, an Earth-bound ghost or spirit will ask their family or friends for forgiveness because the ghost or spirit mis-treated others because of their strict religious beliefs.

WHY IS A MORE "CONSERVATIVE RELIGIOUS" PERSON MORE LIKELY TO BE AN EARTH-BOUND GHOST? - Religions teach that if you do something wrong in life and feel like you can't be forgiven, or generally live your life as a not-so-good, not-so-caring person, you'll go to "Hell."  So, whenever very "religious" people die, often times I've encountered them as ghosts because they are horrified that they will see hell on the other side of the light (which is ridiculous). So, people who are "conservative religious" are afraid to go into the light once they pass for fear of going to a hell. Hell, ironically, is remaining trapped as an Earth-bound ghost for eternity.

SIDE NOTE ABOUT THE DANGERS OF BEING SO "STRICT" IN A BELIEF-  
1) A friend's father was an ultra-conservative Baptist who made his family's life miserable. He didn't mind beating his kids either "in Jesus' name," and because his preacher told him it was acceptable to do so (this was in the 1960s and 1970s). He also didn't mind giving away a lot of the family's income to the church, so they struggled to pay bills. That's warped and dangerous.  If a religion causes someone to put their church before the equal and kind treatment of others, than it's a dangerous "religion." 
DANGERS TODAY: Even today, there are still a few "preachers" who have told parents it's acceptable to beat up children who are gay, in the name of Jesus. Look it up on the Internet. It's appalling.

2) Another friend who is gay, was put through an exorcism by his ultra-conservative religious parents. That ridiculous act was emotionally traumatic to my friend as a young man. This is an extreme case where a sect of religion warped the views of people.

3) Many "ultra-conservative religious" people across the U.S. who learned their child is gay either threw the kids out on the street  (which is pure evil) in the name of their god, or have driven their children to suicide. I know several friends who wanted to commit suicide because of parents who were so strict in their religious beliefs. 
    So, there's a danger in being so "firm" in your beliefs, especially when it opens the door to harm others in any way. Grow from your faith, welcome and love all others, especially those who are unlike you. Show the LOVING side of your religion. Accept everyone. Love everyone. Put yourself in their shoes.
