SUMMARY:   The Victorian Era is named after the period from 1837 to 1901, the length of the rule of Great Britain's Queen Victoria. American Victorianism was an offshoot of this period and lifestyle that occurred in the United States, chiefly in heavily populated regions such as New England and the Deep South. The name was derived from the reign of Queen Victoria, which reflected the heavy British cultural influence on the nation during the time.
     As American business people of the Second Industrial Revolution created sprawling industrial towns and cities in the Northeast, the growing upper class of the Gilded Age mimicked the high society of their former mother country in dress, morality, and mannerisms. The period included various activities: the Second Industrial Revolution, the Women's suffrage movement, and Republican political domination.

Check this page: Near Death Experiences with Deceased Pets

Cody
In 2015 I "met" Cathy who emailed me about some experiences that happened to her after her dog Cody passed. I was able to clarify the messages and Cathy graciously let me include them in my latest book, "Pets in the Afterlife 2." Cathy's dog Cody is featured in Chapter 33: "Cody's Coins and Colors."  The book is available on Amazon.com in paperback and e-book. 



Cathy specializes in research, so she created a Facebook page to compile and share experiences between others of "Near Death Experiences with Deceased Pets." 


She said "I've done a lot of research for years mostly by academics who have done anecdotal studies on NDEs. Recently, I started collecting NDE accounts of people who meet their pets who had passed or they see other animals in the afterlife."
ABOUT THE PAGE: NDEs with Deceased Pets is a collection of anecdotes from people who have had a near death experience and mention seeing their pets or animals.

Note from a reader of this blog

It means a lot to hear from you and find out if you get something out of the various blogs. Recently I received the following note from a reader of the blog. .
The Tuition Room said;
I really love these stories. They fill my heart with some comfort and peace. Please keep up your meaningful work and endeavours. 
   My little dog just died. We only found out she had kidney failure when it was in Stage 4. It took all of two weeks from her diagnosis to her death. She was only 1year 11months. We cremated her and kept her ashes in a beautiful urn in our house along with her other dog who died at almost 17 years of age. (She died 3 years ago). We are devastated by the recent loss. 
    Reading your replies makes me feel so happy that they are in a better place. I pray for them all the time. 

If you have any questions, please email me at Rgutro@gmail.com or connect with me through facebook: https://www.facebook.com/RobGutroAuthorMedium/

A Public Paranormal Investigation at the Belmont Manor

This weekend I joined other members of the Inspired Ghost Tracking team to lead 3 groups of people from the general public through the historic Belmont Manor in Elkridge, Maryland on a paranormal investigation.

    The Belmont Manor started a paranormal program in 2015 with IGT members, where we give lectures and hold public ghost investigations. This was the third investigation we've done and there were about 26 people that paid for the event. All proceeds go directly to maintain the historic mansion and we do it because we want to educate the public and allow them the chance to investigate.
Belmont Manor
  The IGT Team included Margaret, Ronda, Dana, Amy, Jimmy, Greg, Randy, Tom and Rob (me). The event was about 3 hours long and started with an introduction to the types of equipment used in a paranormal investigation from basics like a flashlight (used to navigate in the dark, and also something that ghosts can turn off or on, because they're beings of energy), to a digital recorder, camera, electromagnetic field detector (to detect energy/ghosts), an infrared camera that shows temperature changes (ghosts absorb the heat energy from the atmosphere and create cold spots), and other equipment. (For Information about Inspired Ghost Tracking, visit: www.meetup.com/inspiredghosttracking/ or inspiredghosttracking.webs.com/)

   We split into three groups. Ronda, Tom and I led one group and we had a LOT of experiences. Here's what we found:
 1) The Ghostly Little Girl -  In one room (we won't say which) we sensed a little girl. Tom and I have sensed her before. Last time she told me her name was Amanda or Amelia and that she died at 6 of the flu. The ghostly girl also told me last time she loved to hear to the piano being played from the ballroom on the first floor.
Ballroom that used to have the piano Amanda enjoyed hearing
   How did we get details on this ghost? Ronda brought a small ball with lights and a battery that light up when touched. She placed it on the bed in the room and it sat unlit until we started asking the ghost questions. Ronda asked the little girl's ghost if her name was "Amanda" and it lit up. Then asked if her name was "Amelia" and it didn't light up. Ronda then asked if she was 14, and it didn't light up. She asked if she was 6 years old and it lit up. Next, Ronda asked Amanda if she died of the flu and felt pain in her chest. The ball lit up. Other questions were asked, but there was no response. When Ronda asked if she liked hearing piano music the ball again lit up and stayed lit for some time.

2) The Portal - A portal is a doorway of energy to another place. In one of the bedrooms during a previous investigation many of us on the team sensed a portal, and we learned that it went out to the cemetery in the backyard. What's interesting is that those who are sensitive (not mediums) can stand where the portal is located and feel tingling in their feet or legs. Several people in the group experienced it.

(Randy (right) and Margaret)
3) The Grumpy Male Ghost - In another room, we previously sensed that a man died of a heart attack, Troy and I both got that impression and Ronda also felt it. During this investigation, people in the group sensed a tightness in the room (the energy). Ronda and I worked together and I was able to channel information about the male ghost that died here. I learned that his name was Andrew Lyons. He was a merchant and he managed the barges that went up and down the Patapasco River. Horses were then used to drag the lumber to the mansion. He came to the Belmont Manor to sell timber as they were building a barn, That's where he experienced a heart attack and was brought up to that bedroom where he passed away. However, his ghost never left and remains griumpy because he couldn't contact his family. Of course, if he crossed over, he would have joined them by now.

4) Ghost Box - At the end of the investigations the three teams met back in the main meeting room for a demonstration of the ghost box. The ghost box is basically a radio that scans all stations and stops for an instant on a station to highlight a word, in response to a question asked by an investigator. It works because ghosts have the ability to manipulate electronic things to give messages.

There were a lot of great questions from people in our group and it was an amazing experience to get confirmation of details from the little girl's ghost.

Do you have psychic abilities?

The following guest blog was written by Karen of physicfox.co.uk




It is important to recognize that psychic ability is an inborn, universal, human capability. A natural extension of our other faculties such as – sight, hearing, speech, touch and smell. Some people are born with a strong ability to perceive things that most of us cannot, at least not easily. People who exhibit strong psychic ability from the beginning, also tend to have other traits; Such as inborn right-brainedness, dyslexia, musical or artistic ability, emotional sensitivity, imaginative and strong spiritual leanings from a very young age. With focus and awareness however, there is no reason why we all cannot expand our current level of psychic ability to an impressive extent.

Psychic abilities come under the following basic categories:

Clairvoyance: means ‘clear seeing’. It is the ability to visually see through Psychic senses. Someone with this gift sees images, shapes, colours, still pictures, moving pictures, etc that are not seen by others nor seen by ordinary eyesight.

Clairsentience: means “clear feeling” and relates to the sense of touch. It is the ability to perceive energy fields through physical sensations using Psychic senses. This includes auras, vibrations, and the presence of entities. When you get a “gut feeling” about something, you are using your clairsentience.

Clairaudience: means ‘clear hearing’. It is the ability to hear through Psychic senses. in other words, to hear in a paranormal way. Someone with this gift hears sounds, words, voices, and/or ideas through the hearing centre of the brain. There are two forms of clairaudience. The first form is hearing thoughts within ourselves, which sounds the same as when we talk to ourselves. The second, is through hearing at a higher vibratory level. This the vibration of the spirit world.

So how can we expand our psychic ability?

The first step is to learn the art of relaxation and meditation. To discover your inner power and how to communicate with it. Learn to know your inner self. You must have faith in, accept and acknowledge your intuitive senses. To relax is something we all know how to do to a certain extent. But rarely do we relax properly. The body may be still and in repose, but the mind is often still busy. Racing ahead, thinking of 101 things that need to be done. To allow the psychic senses to be in a receptive state, the mind needs to be still and quiet. If it is not, we cannot tune in to, or hear what our inner voice is trying to show or tell us.

The most powerful tool we have at our disposal for quietening the mind is meditation. There are various techniques for doing this. Buddhist techniques, such as the breath meditation is but one. With this method, you focus so strongly on your breathing that all other thoughts recede. Visualization is another way of quietening the mind. One of the easiest ways of using visualization is to hold an image in your mind, such as a candle or an image of a place where you have always felt calm and at peace. A sunny day at the beach. Or sitting in a sunlight grove, breathing in the scents of the earth and listening to the sounds of nature. Music can also be very relaxing. Lie quietly, listening to a favourite piece of music. All these things will help to still your thoughts and allow you to drift gently.

The higher self: Is believed to be the aspect of ourselves that is connected to the universal source of divine wisdom and energy. While meditating, you are opening up a channel between your physical mind and your higher mind. Keep a diary or journal, where you can record any thoughts, images, and feelings that you receive while in this state. Another good source of intuitive and psychic information is our dreams. When we dream, the conscious mind recedes and the unconscious mind becomes dominant. While asleep, we are very open to the power of thought and guidance from spirit.

In the dream-state, people who would not consider themselves to be Clairvoyant or Mediumistic, have been known to receive messages from loved ones in spirit, intuitive guidance and inspiration. Record your dreams, write down every bit of information you can remember. The time of day, the weather, the people you see. All will have symbolic meaning. Symbolism is the oldest form of communication, as the images will have universal meaning. Which is a powerful way of communicating in such a way that anyone, no matter what their language, belief system and cultural background is, will understand.

Know anyone whose pet passed?

If you've lost a precious pet or know someone who has, they may find comfort in knowing how to recognize signs from their pets in spirit. That's what I wrote about in my books Pets and the Afterlife and Pets and the Afterlife 2 (by Rob Gutro) both available in paperback and e-book on Amazon.com (paperbacks under $10 and ebooks under $4). .

What do Repetitive Numbers Mean with Spirit?

Barb Mallon
My friend Medium Barb Mallon wrote a great column about repetitive numbers and I wanted to share it with you this week.  -Rob
What do Repetitive Numbers Mean with Spirit?
I've had SO many clients ask me about those same series of numbers they see frequently and what they mean.  I incorporate numerology in most aspects of my life, from my home or office address, license plates, times on the clock, etc.  It's easy when you think of 0 or 1 as the beginning of a new journey and 9 being at the end of a journey.   I do believe that it's not only a message from the angelic realm, but also from guides and loved ones on the other side.  :)    Enjoy!
Barb Mallon
www.BarbMallon.com  /office@barbmallon.com  / (o) 703.474.2227

I tend to interpret the numbers in this way:
  Basically a doubled number is a more spiritual suggestion, and triple and quadruple is a "what are you waiting for?" or pay close attention - even more spiritual.  I tend to pay attention to the combo numbers as well, such as 11:44.  This would me for me to get started on that new project, but keep it organized!
 1 - a new beginning 11... a spiritual new beginning and 111 and 1111, pay attention!  Get off your butt and get started on what it is you want!  :)
 2 - need for balance, partnership, teamwork, harmony.
 3 - expansion, evolving, building, incorporating new ideas, growing, fertile.
 4 - square things up, organize, keep it together, stick to the rules, save money.
 5 - chaos, a little craziness, tone it down, simplify, breathe.
 6 - too much material, addictions, possessions, a need for more faith and spirituality.  Balance your lower self and higher self.
 7 - remember to have faith, spirituality, this too shall pass, you're starting to "get it."
 8 - infinity, what you're putting out is going to come back in the way you put it out, so careful with your thoughts!  Unconditional love, close to harvesting time.
 9 - ending of a journey, wrap everything up and keep moving forward.  A new beginning soon!
 10 = 1 - new journey, new beginning.

Paranormal Orbs 101: What is an Orb?

Today we'll explore orbs and what they look like if they are connected to a ghost or spirit. 

What is an Orb?
A Dictionary definition of an orb is an unexpected, often circular photographic artifact. In terms of paranormal activity, orbs are the most simple form a ghost or spirit can take. However, you need to be careful in calling something an orb.

What do Genuine Orbs Look Like? 
  I've found that orbs that are associated with a ghost or spirit can be diffentiated from non-orbs in a couple of ways. One is that they usually have designs or colors in them. Reflections, bugs, dust or pollen do not have designs or colors in photographs and are often mistaken for orbs. Further, genuine orbs may also have a face in them!  In one investigation I wrote about in my book "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead" myself and Troy, another medium in the group sensed 2 female ghosts in a home where a double murder occurred (unbeknownst to us). One of the Inspired Ghost Tracking Team captured an orb in the area where we sensed the two female ghosts. In the orb was the FACE of a woman. You can see it here and it appears in the book (available on Amazon) that also explains the entire investigation.

Orbs During Paranormal Investigations
   I've noticed orbs appear in photos whenever I'm sensing a ghost. There were several instances when orbs have appeared in photos when I sense a ghost nearby. In Riversdale Mansion, Riverdale, Md. I sensed a woman and a little girl in a large room. At the time, one of the members from Inspired Ghost Trackers was taking photos, and in one of them, several orbs appeared in front of a window.
  During a private investigation, I sensed a lot of emotional energy and distress in a furnace room that turned out to be where two women were murdered. In a follow-up investigation days later, an orb appeared with the face of a woman behind it! (It will be in my 2nd book coming later in 2012 called "Lessons Learned from the Dead.").

 Orbs may Indicate Ghostly Activity
    A friend from Florida sent me a photo of an orb that appeared in a photo taken outside his house. What's interesting is that he's had paranormal activity in his house -including footsteps, movement of doors and objects, and he's seen shadow figures. So, I sent the photo to the Inspired Ghost Trackers of Maryland to analyze it.

What do others say about orbs? 

Orbs appear in Riversdale Mansion room when I sensed 2 ghosts.
Dave Juliano of Shadowland.net, a ghost hunter, defines an Orb this way: The orb is the energy being transferred from a source (i.e. powerlines, heat energy, batteries, people, etc) to the spirit so they can manifest.   This may not even be a conscious thing the spirit is doing, just a natural way they get their energy.  This would explain why the orbs are round balls.  According to the laws of Physics energy being transferring like that would assume is natural shape of a sphere.   This theory can also be tied into the EMF readings we get during spirit activity. Source: http://theshadowlands.net/ghost/orbs.htm
   Dave brings up a good point about Camera Processing errors: The digital cameras can't have film-processing errors.  I am aware that some people feel that the orbs on a digital camera are an error in the digital processing of the image.  When that error does occur in digital photos, the objects tend to be square in nature, not round and they cannot be semi-transparent, the pixel behind would have to be corrupted also.
