Explanations of What Ghosts and Spirits Really are on Halloween (and year 'round)

Halloween happens tomorrow, and if you're curious about the truth about what a ghost is, and what a spirit is, and the difference, check out Rob Gutro's updated/revised book "Ghosts and Spirits." It was updated this year and you'll learn all about the paranormal and read some amazing stories about hauntings in various places and how spirits of loved ones come through and give messages.   The cover contains a photo of the Ghostly face of an actor that haunts the Bird Cage Theatre in Arizona, as the visage appeared in front of a painting of an actress (that hangs in the lobby of the Bird Cage).  Available in paperback and E-book on Amazon.com (Get the version with the purple border, as it's the NEW version. Used copies on Amazon are the old version). 

 Paranormal Author Revises Breakthrough Book: "Ghosts and Spirits"

Look for the purple border for the new volume
WASHINGTON -- Author and paranormal investigator Rob Gutro has updated and revised his breakthrough paranormal book "Ghosts and Spirits" for 2016. The author's four books have all reached best-seller status in Amazon.com's supernatural category.   
"Ghosts and Spirits" was Gutro's first book, originally published in 2010. It was the first paranormal book to distinguish the difference and similarities between Earth-bound ghosts and spirits who have crossed over into "Heaven, Valhalla, Paradise, etc." or whatever people call the other side.  

"Look for the purple border to get the 2nd Edition. There are a number of 1st editions on Amazon.com under "used" - so make sure you get the revision."
"One of the most incredible stories in the book is about how my dad's spirit helped me prove to my own family members that he was at his own wake and funeral and around during the entire week of his services," Gutro said. "My dad's spirit also helped me find a number of things for my mother, who lived over 300 miles away."
The author, a medium, paranormal investigator, scientist and dog dad, provides proof that people and pets do communicate with us from the other side. He is a medium with Inspired Ghost Tracking of Md. He sketches out what ghosts look like who are haunting private homes and has received many confirmation from homeowners. He is also a parent to three dogs and is a volunteer with Dachshund and Weimaraner rescues.
"I wrote this book to provide some understanding of the difference between an Earth-bound entity and one who crossed over," Gutro said. Readers will learn about orbs, poltergeists, dark entities, the significance of ashes, what happens to murder and suicide victims, how to experience ghosts, how to cross them over, and more. He has learned that when it comes to spirits, there is no such thing as a coincidence. He cautions though that people should not jump to conclusions and think everything is a sign. "There has to be a personal meaning or connection," he said. 
Rob Gutro, medium, paranormal investigator
In "Ghosts and Spirits" readers will also learn how the author lived in a haunted house, how he experienced many ghosts in historic and other places.
Earlier in 2016 he published his fourth book, "Pets and the Afterlife 2," a follow up to Amazon's best-selling "Pets and the Afterlife," where readers will learn how dogs and cats have the intelligence and ability to send signs to the living after they pass. "Ghosts and Spirits" includes the author's first experience with pet communications thanks to his dog "Buzz" who passed and became "the world's best canine communicator." It was all of the communications from Buzz that inspired him to write his first book.
"I write these books to educate and give people understanding to recognize signs on their own," he said. He doesn't take appointments or do readings but people are always welcome to e-mail or Facebook him.
Rob maintains a weekly blog, Facebook and Twitter pages, where he writes about paranormal topics, and where people can share their stories or find other resources on the paranormal. The new book and his other books "Pets and the Afterlife," "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead" are available in paperback and E-book, on Amazon.com and other outlets at: http://tinyurl.com/hp92st7. Published by CreateSpace, Inc.
The author has been featured in the Washington Post, MSNBC, WBZ Newsradio Boston, "Coast to Coast AM" syndicated radio with George Noory, Paranormal TV's "Do You Believe," Paranormal Underground Magazine and U.S., U.K. and Ireland paranormal radio programs such as Unknown Paranormal Radio, Ghost Chronicles Radio, the Haunted Syndicate Pararadio Show and many others.

Fun at Strathmore Mansion and a nice compliment

Tea Room & Talk the Strathmore Mansion in Bethesda, MD invited me to give a talk about"How
Spirits Communicate, and a Ghost Investigation" during their tea event
  The crowd was wonderful and had great questions. I was honored that my friends Linda and Lynn were there to support me. 
  One of the ladies that works there and whom purchased my "Pets and the Afterlife" book gave me a nice compliment when she told me that she "loved  the book" and actually keeps it on her nightstand. She said it brings her a lot of comfort. That's exactly what I hoped for when I wrote it!  I'm so humbled. 
  I spoke with so many wonderful people who had questions about ghosts, spirits, people and pets. My thanks to Mary and the staff of the Strathmore for asking me back again, and for the great desserts.  
 In a blog next week, I'll talk about what happens with spirit in accidents and murders.

Q&A 2 of 2: Ghosts and Negative Energy

On Saturday, Oct. 8th, I gave a talk at the George Mason Regional Library in Annandale, VA about one of the cases from the Inspired Ghost Tracking Group. The folks who attended had great questions. They also had their own experiences which they shared.
 Here's another question:
 "You said that Ghosts use Negative Emotional energy to power up. Does that energy come back on the living?"  Yes. Having a ghost in your house is like a vicious cycle of bad energy. It matters not what the personality of the ghost may be (they could be a happy ghost) - what matters is because they are earthbound, they use negative emotional energy like fear, anger, anxiety, depression, to "power up" to show you they're around. They also EMIT the same, causing the living to be more fearful, more angry, impatient, depressed, or anxious.  So, that's why even if a ghost has a good personality in your house, they really need to cross over - for their sake, and yours.

Q&A 1 of 2: Why Ghosts in Basements and more /Great questions at Recent Library Appearance

On Saturday, Oct. 8th, I gave a talk at the George Mason Regional Library in Annandale, VA about one of the cases from the Inspired Ghost Tracking Group. The folks who attended had great questions. They also had their own experiences which they shared.
 Here's one of the questions:
1) Why do ghosts seem to linger in basements or attics? 
Think of ghosts as the people they are/were. Since they know that living people now reside in their home, they want their own privacy. So, basements and attics are places that living people only go when they need to, and those places offer the most quiet. It's like an invisible roommate looking for their own room.
NEXT: Question about Ghosts and Negative Energy

Dragonflies Can be a sign from spirit - Story #4: Her Husband's Dragonfly

Spirits (those who have crossed into the light) have the ability to manipulate things in nature to give us signs. Things like dragonflies, birds, butterflies, feathers, flowers, and other things that would help identify them. 
That doesn't mean every time you see a dragonfly someone in spirit is there. The dragonfly or whatever it is would have to have special significance, or behave oddly in a way that it usually would not. Below is Story #1 of 4 about dragonflies and spirit.   


STORY #4 - HER HUSBAND'S DRAGONFLY


  July 12, 2016 at 7:59 AM
     My husband's birthday would have been July 8, but he passed on April 4, 2016. I wanted to visit the cemetery that Sunday after his birthday, feeling drawn to do it with my recent loss. My sister-in-law accompanied me. 

   We sat on the bench in front of the family plot and started speaking about our losses, life and suddenly a dragonfly passed by. In a little while more showed up and then there was a swarm of them just flying around us but concentrating on my husband's and mother-in-law's graves (she passed 2 years ago). They didn't fly around any other graves, just those two and around us. 
   We sat and talked for more than 1/2 hour and the dragonflies never left us. There is no body of water in the cemetery that they would have been drawn to, just us. 
   I don't believe it was a coincidence. I believe it was a communication. The funny thing is that my husband never believed in such things.

 MY REPLY:   Whenever insects like dragonflies behave oddly, they're likely being influenced by spirit as the ones you encountered were. I believe that your husband was telling you he's a believer now!

Photos and My Talk at Dachtoberfest Event

A doggy jester
On Saturday, Oct. 2 from 11am to 2pm, I attended the "Dachtoberfest" dog event  in Middletown, PAhosted by Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue!  
   There were lots of Dachshunds, vendors, Weiner Races, photos on a Wienermobile, and I gave a talk about "How Pets Communicate from Spirit." It was held outside and despite the low clouds and some fog, and even some sprinkles, people enjoyed the event.
Doxie fishes!
  I was so honored that there were so many who gathered around to hear my talk and offer explanation of how it all works for people and pets who pass, and how they communicate from the other side. There were several folks who had their own experiences and others got confirmation.
  One woman that came by my table later told me that her dad loved hawks. When he passed, she started seeing hawks when she was thinking of him. Her dad influenced hawks to appear around his daughter and he was watching over her. That was his sign.

   I was so happy to see Megan and Matt, who drove all the way up from Maryland with the bonded pair of Dachshunds that they adopted from Coast to Coast the month before. I met them when they filled out the application and I could tell how totally spoiled that pair of doxies are now. What a wonderful sight! My thanks to them for making the drive and for adopting a bonded pair. 
Two doxies and a bubble bath!
   My thanks to the Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue (with whom I am a member and do fostering, dog transports, home visits, etc.). Please consider donating to help cover the costs of all the veterinary visits of dogs CCDR takes in.
  Here are photos of some of the great dogs I met at Dachtoberfest!

Dragonflies Can be a sign from spirit - Story #3: A Son's Dragonfly

A green dragonfly with black spots - Libellula quadrimaculata
Spirits (those who have crossed into the light) have the ability to manipulate things in nature to give us signs. Things like dragonflies, birds, butterflies, feathers, flowers, and other things that would help identify them.

  That doesn't mean every time you see a dragonfly someone in spirit is there. The dragonfly or whatever it is would have to have special significance, or behave oddly in a way that it usually would not.
Below is Story # 3 of 4 from readers about dragonflies and spirit.  

MY SON'S DRAGONFLY

November 12, 2013 

    I have had a Beautiful Green Dragonfly with black dots on its body around me since my 26 year old son died by his own hand. I know it was him because I first started seeing them the same color in Pennsylvania the day after he died and it was very cold there.
   
   Now I saw one here in Missouri while my friends and I were looking at my son's year book outside of Barnes & Noble. The dragonfly sat on the outside table the entire 3 hours we were there and then followed me into my truck! 
  It is very cold here now in Missouri and the dragonfly is outside my back door. 
I am a Believer!

Free Dog Event: Sun. Oct. 2 11-3pm, Middletown, PA

Today- From 11 am to 3 p.m. EDT  Come to the Dachtoberfest and bring your dog! 
Lots of Dachshunds, but bring any dog. It's free and there are vendors, Weiner Races, photos on a Wienermobile, and I'll be giving a talk at 12 noon about how Pets communicate from the Afterlife.
At the Greenlin Kennel, 600 Schoolhouse Road, Middleton, PA. 



Spirit, Messages and Personalities!

We keep our personalities in the afterlife
We keep our memories, personalities and behaviors in the afterlife. Recently when I gave a talk about pets and the afterlife (based on my books of the same name) at Family Vet Clinic in Gambrills, Maryland I was asked why one of three dogs had not yet given signs to his mom, Kim. This also goes for people who passed, too.

Kim said that three of her dogs had passed and she was able to identify signs from 2 of the 3, but wondered why she hadn't heard from the other one. I told her that it's all based on personality. I asked if the dog she had not heard from was passive in life and let the other 2 dogs always get attention. She confirmed that. Well, that's exactly what's happening in the afterlife. That little shy dog is letting her siblings speak for her.
A chatty dog in spirit

The same thing happened in my family with my mom and dad in spirit. When my dad passed in 2008 he was very active up until Dec. 2013, when my mom passed. Since Dec. 2013 I've only heard from my mom's spirit, because in life, my dad was passive and always stepped back to let my mother do all the talking. So, dad's still around, but he's not saying much, as he did in life.

We all maintain our personalities when we pass, so if someone was quiet in life they'll be quiet in the afterlife. If they were chatty in life, same in the afterlife. We also maintain our habits and behavior, so if a shy person or pet let others get the attention or speak more often, they'll do the same in the afterlife!
