Did you know - Glen Grant in the Hawaiian Paranormal Community?

 A friend of mine from Hawaii recently told me about a legendary paranormal storyteller from Hawaii and some of his TV show videos are still on YouTube to enjoy. He was a host of a show called "Chick'n Skin" (like goosebumps experienced when a ghost is near you).
  Glen Grant passed away at 56 in June 2003. According to the Honolulu Star Bulletin newspaper, "He was a Hawaiian who was best known as an expansive storyteller of local supernatural lore -- in print, with his popular obake and chicken skin tales, in person during tours of haunted Oahu locales, and on radio. But Grant was also an avid Hawaiiana historian, a small-businessman and active community member of the Moiliili he so loved. Ryan said he had just been elected to the center's board in January.
Grant, business partner Jill Staas and friends ran the popular "Honolulu Timewalks" and "Ghostbusters" walking tours from offices in the century-old Kamada Building near the corner of University Avenue and South King Street, next door to their bookshop-coffee bar the Haunt."

Here's a short video from his Chick'n Skin TV show that will definitely give you "chicken skin."

In the News: Rob Lowe Signed Up for a Ghost-Hunting Reality Show to Stay Close With His Sons

Rob Lowe Signed Up for a Ghost-Hunting Reality Show to Stay Close With His Sons

By



Here comes A and E to ruin your childhood with a reality TV Ghostbusters starring Rob Lowe and his two 20-something sons. The network announced today that it green-lit The Lowe Files, a nine-episode series that will take Rob, Matthew, and John Owen Lowe on a tour of the spookiest parts of the U.S. Did you know that Rob Lowe believes in ghosts? Because according to A&E’s press release, he’s obsessed:
Since I was a kid I’ve loved unexplained legends, strange phenomena and the scary, supernatural stories told around campfires. When I became a father I shared those tales with my two sons. Together we bonded over Bigfoot, UFO’s, and every creepy and bizarre story we could find, passionately debating if they were real…or not. And we swore that someday the three of us would go on our own adventure to find out. That day has come.
See, The Lowe Files isn’t really about ghosts; it’s about fatherhood. Per A&E’s Elaine Frontain Bryant, “Their explorations will certainly lead them to dynamic and exciting places, but a nostalgic journey for a father and his sons is what’s at the heart of the series’ underlying mission.” Most parents just guilt their kids into coming home for the holidays to stave off empty-nest syndrome, but sure, a reality show also works.

Tarot Tuesday: 3 of Cups: Get together with friends and celebrate

Here's this week's Tarot lesson from my friend Joy Andreasen. 
  
 Today might be a day to get together with friends and celebrate or perhaps just blow off some steam. There is never a bad time to find your tribe and just be together. In today's society sometimes we have a tendency to isolate ourselves from human contact. Our biggest communications sometime tend to be done electronically, through texting or social media. There is much to be said for actual face time, spent in the company of others. Perhaps a social gathering is in order. Even a meal spent together brings a sense of community and intimacy. Today find some to get together with people you love.

Description: The Three of Cups represents groups coming together to focus on a common emotional goal. People reach out emotionally to one another. It speaks of a sense of community, and can indicate the time to get more involved by helping. An inner passion for caring may be discovered, and energy put forth toward a goal will be positive and nurturing. It can also signal that this is the time to reach out if things have been particularly rough in the past. This card stands for all forms of support including formal organizations such as counseling or other social services. It's important that when the need for support is recognized that action is taken. This is the best time to do that. Reversed, the Three of Cups suggests that isolation from others is occurring. It is the time to take charge of the situation and to get out into the community. Consider joining a group or organization, and if the need for support is present, seek out the necessary resources.

A Dog's Spirit Appears under the Northern Lights and a surprise birthday message

Andrex
The following email is one that I received recently from a woman named Cora, who received an amazing sign from her beloved dog who passed. Several people she knew said they see her dog in a photo taken under the Northern Lights. Here's her letter and photos of her dog Andrex, and the photo of her friend in the Northern Lights and the image of Andrex in the bottom right side.
  Spirits can appear in photos, and they don't have to appear in full color. Notice that the outline of Andrex appears to glow. This photo was not enhanced, and it seems odd that area is glowing... but, as I've said with spirit, there's no such thing as a coincidence. 
  After getting permission from Cora to share this story, I decided to post it on the weekend of April 22/23. It turned out that Andrex had influenced me to PICK that weekend!  -
  Here's Cora's note after I emailed her the date I would post:
Dear Rob  Your choosing of 22nd April has a significant meaning to me.  Andrex's birthday is 23rd April!  Andrex might have sent you a message 😊 It seems that he is guiding me to approach Sonya and you, it seems that he is making me to realize that he is around me, the uncommon events happened made me noticed, Andrex is constantly sending me messages, I even heard him moving things inside my room at night, licking his paws, the licking sound was so familiar.

   Following is Cora's Original Story of how Andrex showed up in Finland:

 ANDREX AND THE NORTHERN LIGHTS
It happened that Amazon.com recommended your book "Pets and the Afterlife" while I am still grieving about the pass away of my beloved Border Collie Andrex, who left me this January on the 15th of prostate cancer.  Everything happened so fast that it was just within 1.5 months the horrible disease took my son away, which was 9.9 year-old.

The reason why I write to you now, is that I want to share with you an experience that I had with Andrex when I took a trip to Finland ten days after Andrex died.

My friend, who was a very close friend to me and Andrex, captured an unbelievable photo in Finland while she was appreciating the Northern lights.  She showed me the picture, I shouted out and said to her, Andrex was in the picture!!! He was there, sitting opposite to my friend, looking up to the sky, appreciating the Northern lights too!  It was exactly the shape of a dog, not other dogs, but the shape of Andrex, the body shape, the height.... it was him.

It sounds a bit crazy and it seems that I am just being exaggerated but my feeling told me that it was Andrex, I showed it to some friends and those were close to him recognized him!  It was indeed a little snow path next to my friend, but I would believe it was Andrex, too amazing to believe.

Tarot Tuesday: Face the Issues You've Previously Avoided



Here's this week's Tarot lesson from my friend Joy Andreasen. 
  
Are you feeling backed into a corner? Does it seem sometimes that you are always on the defensive? I wish I could say that it will all be over soon but I am feeling like April may present a lot of challenges. The good news is we get to decide how we are going to react to those challenges. If we have reacted badly in the past, guess what. We get another chance to face the same challenge and do it better this time. Communications and relationships are really taking a hit right now. It is time for us to go within ourselves and decide what things we can overlook and what things are deal breakers. Face those issues you have previously avoided. You may feel all alone in the fight or the fight may be completely within your own psyche. You can overcome! Don't give up!

Recap and Photos: Medium Ruthie Larkin's Event at Inspired Ghost Tracking

Ruthie giving  a reading from spirit
Medium Ruthie Larkin, known as the "Bean Town Medium" had a group reading event at Inspired Ghost Tracking on April 7, 2017 near the Baltimore-Washington International (BWI) Airport in Maryland. The event drew over 150 people and Ruthie did many readings during the evening.
   Some of the detail she conveyed was amazing. The room was packed and everyone was thinking of their loved ones, hoping the spirits (people who passed and crossed over) would come through with messages for them.
Inspired Ghost Tracking Members listen in
     Ruthie told me "for people who died tragically or horribly" she would not mention the exact cause of their death in a public forum. She instead used terms like "died unexpectedly," or "died tragically." The spirit of one young woman came through and told Ruthie that she was murdered and her friend (in the room) witnessed the horrible event. So Ruthie wouldn't disclose that information to the room filled with people. She said it's more of a personal thing. She does disclose that kind of information in private readings. Two other spirits died in a plane crash, but she instead said "died tragically."

The room was filled
    By "filtering" the way of death, it doesn't prompt people in public reading events to later ask the person (being read) questions and make them uncomfortable.
RUTHIE IN BOOKS:
Ruthie was ranked one of the Top 100 Psychics in America in a book of the same name (2016).
  She has a chapter in Rob Gutro's "Pets and the Afterlife" about the many signs from her dog Boston after she passed.
Ruthie is also featured in Rob Gutro's book "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead" when they went to Ford's Theatre and got a double confirmation of John Wilkes Booth's ghost! 
 
TO SCHEDULE A PRIVATE READING: 
  If you didn't get a reading from Ruthie she does phone readings and you can schedule and pay for one on her website at www.beantownmedium.com.She lives in southern Massachusetts, so you can also see her in person in her office and have a reading with her.

COMING UP: 
  Ruthie also does other large events and has a Mediumship / Energy weekend planned for October 2017. Watch her website or this blog for details.

Tarot Tuesday: Knight of Swords



Here's this week's Tarot lesson from my friend Joy Andreasen. 

The Knight of Swords
There may be some difficulties coming and going quickly in your experience in the next few days. Hold on tight. Change is coming and it is coming quickly. The process may not be all that pleasant but it will be short lasting. There may arise some conflict or short tempers but try to keep a cool head and take it all in stride. In a few days the worst will be over and you can breathe a sigh of relief.

The Difference between a Medium and a Psychic

Just like there's a difference between ghosts (Earth Bound) and spirits (who have crossed over),
there's a difference between Mediums and Psychics. Sometimes people have BOTH gifts.

SIMILARITY:  Both mediums and psychics have the ability to read energies.

DIFFERENCE: Mediums read energies of people or pets who have passed and provide messages from them.

Psychics can interpret energies that give them feelings about current decisions facing people, like "what career should I go into"" or "should I ask this guy for a date?" Psychics can give guidance on decisions and may even have insight to the future. Mediums do not.

I've found that psychics are also usually mediums, while not all mediums are also psychics.

Karma by the Pants!

The burglar hanging on a fence in Tucson, AZ. Cr: Jesse S
If you missed this in the news last week, a burglar who broke into a school in Tucson, Arizona had karma catch up to him pretty quickly. In fact, when he was leaving, he scaled a spiked fence that caught his baggy pants and turned him upside-down, where he hung until the police arrived. One passerby actually took a picture of him and posted it on facebook!

The Huffington Post said " The man was apparently spooked on the grounds of Miles Elementary School by a locksmith, who reportedly said he saw the man trying to break into classrooms on Friday, a school official told ABC 15. School was not in session at the time."

He was arrested, cuffed and rode to jail in the back of a responding police car. So, when you're thinking about doing something bad, it'll catch up with you, and sometimes, it'll grab you by the seat of your pants.

Tarot Tuesday with Joy Andreasen: King of Pentacles

Here's this week's Tarot Tuesday from my friend Joy Andreasen.  
Joy's description of Today's Card: 
Beware of those with money and power who use that power to step on others. Typically I would look at this card and say yay! You are on top of the world. You are prosperous and have great power. However today I see that foot sticking out covered in armor and stepping on something undetermined. I think Spirit wants us to be mindful of intentions and integrity. If someone is using their position of power and their money to step on those less fortunate, their position means nothing. Let us beware of the power we give them and make sure we are aware. Walk in integrity and you will be okay. Defend the powerless and take a stand to come to their aid. Use your abundance and power wisely.

Q&A: Can I talk with Living Pets/ How Do We Know its Time?

Recently I received the following questions about whether a medium can connect with living pets, how we know it's their time, and do some pets choose how and when to pass. Here are my responses:
Q:  As a medium, can you also connect with living pets?

A:  I'm only able to connect with pets who have passed. Animal communicators specialize in communicating with pets who are still here. Also people who practice Reiki  can do the same. Do a google search for either.


Q:  How do we know if it's time to help our pets cross over?

A: Your dog will let you know when it's time. When he stops eating, then you'll know that he's ready to give up.  If he's in pain, you'll notice a lot of heavy panting. Our Weimaraner has arthritis in her hips, and I found out when she was panting when she walked (Extend joint supplements and Restorapet eased the pain). Regardless, when dogs pant heavily, they are sometimes feeling pain or discomfort. Our dog Sprite let us know when he stopped eating and was unable to get up on his back legs in 2013

Q: Do pets choose when or how they want to pass? 

A: Yes.  A dog or cat, like a person, will determine if they want to pass with their loved ones, or by themselves. Some dogs and cats wander off in the house or backyard to pass quietly on their own. Others want their family around. So watch for that kind of behavior.


Love and hug your cat or dog as much as you can!

IN THE NEWS: Former shelter dog hailed as a hero for finding 3-year-old girl curled up in ditch

Here's an uplifting story for you. A dog that was discarded into a shelter, left to die was adopted only to save an unrelated toddler from freezing to death. We need to understand that dogs are much more than pets. They have intelligence beyond what we can imagine, they have knowledge, a sense of danger, personalities all their own. They are JUST like people and should be treated with dignity and respect. This is just one example of what a dog can do. Amazing.


Former shelter dog hailed as a hero for finding 3-year-old girl curled up in ditch

 By Jennifer Earl CBS News March 21, 2017, 5:27 PM

Former shelter dog, Peanut, is being hailed a hero for rescuing a 3-year-old girl from a ditch in Michigan.
Delta Animal Shelter/Facebook
     A year ago, a 2-year-old dog with broken legs, ribs and a belly full of carpet was fortunate enough to be saved by an animal shelter and adopted into a loving home.
Now, a year later, the dog’s the one doing the rescuing.
      The medium-sized mixed-breed named Peanut suddenly started barking uncontrollably while inside her home in Escanaba, Michigan, Friday morning. The behavior was certainly unusual for the ordinarily shy pup.
     She ran up and down the stairs, barking and yelping until her owner finally let her outside. Once the door opened, the dog barreled into an open field behind the house -- her confused owner following close behind.
Eventually, the dog stopped in front of a ditch, and looked back at her owner.
At first, the man pulled on the dog’s collar to turn back, but then he took a closer look and saw a naked little girl curled up into a ball, shivering uncontrollably in the freezing temperatures. Quickly, he hopped into the ditch and wrapped her in his shirt, running back home with Peanut on his heels.
     The family called 911 as they covered the girl in blankets to warm her up.
“By the time the ambulance and police arrived, the little girl could only say one thing -- ‘doggie,’” the dog’s owner explained in a letter to the Delta Animal Shelter, where they adopted the dog last April. “Thanks to Peanut, a little girl’s life was saved.”
     Michigan’s Delta County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the family’s story in a news statement on Monday, crediting the canine for alerting his owner to the child’s presence.     The little girl was not injured and was transported to a nearby hospital for tests, while deputies went door to door in an attempt to find her parents, authorities said. The parents were eventually located at a house nearby.
“Further investigation unveiled unsafe and unsanitary living conditions at the residence,” the sheriff’s office reported. “Child Protective Services was contacted and the found girl along with another young female were eventually removed from the residence.”
    Police said the case has been sent to the Delta County Prosecutor’s Office for review.
    “Through all of this sad news, give thanks the children are safe,” the Delta Animal Shelter wrote in a post on Tuesday. “The good in this heartbreaking story is the heroism of this former abused shelter dog Peanut, and her wonderful adoptive family.”
The family agreed, praising Peanut for her “sixth sense.”   “Without her, not only would she have been gone from this world, but the life of this little girl might have been taken as well,” Peanut’s owner said.

Tarot Tuesday with Joy Andreasen: Strength




This is a new feature I'm posting thanks to my friend Joy Andreasen.  
I call it "Tarot Tuesday."

Joy's description of Today's Card: 
This card has been coming up a lot lately. It is time to tap into that strength that lies within us to conquer those lions that come across our paths. Those things which can be perceived as difficulties can actually turn out to be our allies when we realize the power that we have inside us to change our circumstances around to our favor. Our words, our thoughts and our beliefs create our experiences. Just for today, take a belief you have about a challenge you are facing and find the blessing. Remember you have the strength inside you to turn anything around.
