A Sign from My Mom While on Vacation!

A literal sign from my Mom
Today's blog is about how spirits give signs anywhere and anytime to let us know they're with us. As someone who has been able to get messages from people and pets who have passed on, it's important to share stories of loved ones who communicate. As I've written in my books, it's all about paying attention.
  In May, I took a vacation on a Viking River Cruise up the Danube River. We had to dock in the city of EngleHartszell, Austria instead of going all the way north to our last stop of Passau, Germany. That's because heavy rainfall had caused the Danube River to rise, making it impossible for the cruise ship to go underneath a bridge that spanned the river. If the ship could have gone under the bridge, we would have been able to dock in Passau instead.
Norma, Rob's mom
  So, to get to our last stop from Englehartszell, Austria, we boarded a bus and proceeded north on Route 130. Route 130 ran parallel to the Danube River. Just before we got to the bridge that crossed the river into old Passau, Germany, we entered the newer part of Passau, and on the lefthand side of the bus was a huge red sign that simply said "Norma."
   That's my mother's name. My mother was Italian (she passed in 2013), and I never thought I would see her name in Germany!  I sensed my mom and dad were around me, and this time they wanted to give me an actual sign as a sign!
   When I got home, I looked up "Norma in Passau, Germany" and learned that it is a supermarket. The actual supermarket sign we passed is located at Kapuzinerstraße 42, 94032 Passau, Germany.
    It's always good to know that Mom and Dad are around and still watching over me. 

To learn about more signs that spirits give us, check out my books Ghosts and Spirits; or Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead, or Kindred Spirits - all available on Amazon.com

When Orville passed away in March, my kitchen wasn't the same, I struggled to create edible art like I did. In my time of grief, I stumbled upon Rob Gutro who mentioned "Orville wants you to create a special baked cookie in his name, because he helped in the kitchen" It was than Orville Organic Grain Free Dog cookies were made. Making Orville Cookies are about spreading love to other dogs, Orville loved love and it truly feels like he is here with me when I make them.

Ed's Spirit Sends a Sign of Approval! (read my new book "Kindred Spirits")

If you haven't read my new book "Kindred Spirits: How a Medium Befriends a Spirit" then you may
not know about Ed, a spirit whom I befriended after getting continual messages over the last 14 years. Our story is in that book - and we never met in life.
   The book was just published in July and I've been doing several interviews about the book since then. Each time, Ed is always standing behind me listening and telling me what to talk about. He's pretty happy about the book since he passed away in 1996, and the book lets everyone know how he and other spirits are still very much around. 
   In fact, on Saturday, August 17th, I sensed him around while we were doing laundry. He gave us a confirmation, too.  My partner Tom took the sheets out of the dryer and brought them into the bedroom. He put them down on the bed and shook them out, and a penny dropped out of them!  How that got in there (and why it didn't fall out on the way from the dryer to the bedroom is because Ed didn't want it to fall out yet).  The penny was dated 1996 - the year Ed passed away! 
  Spirits send us signs in many ways, and Ed loves using coins with the 1996 date on them. Keep in mind, that's 23 years ago.  Glad to see that Ed approves of his book and my story with him!

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Kindred Spirits: When a Medium Befriends a Spirit ABOUT THE BOOK It's uncommon for a medium really get know a spirit so well that the living person considers the spirit a best friend. But that's exactly what happened to medium and paranormal investigator Rob Gutro. When Rob met his partner Tom in 2005, Ed's spirit came along for the ride. Rob never knew Ed in life, but Tom did. Now, Ed often communicates to Rob and has revealed his sense of humor, his heart, and helped solved the mystery of his passing. Ed's "Spirit Treasure Hunt" showed his family he's with them, too. Ed even sent a look-alike to rescue Rob during a vacation in England. As you read about this special spirit named Ed and his sometimes funny communications, you'll learn signs your loved ones send. This book will teach you how to be more aware of messages from your loved ones in spirit.

All Saints Church in Bristol
All Saints Church in Bristol
In the 1840s, local Bristol newspapers reported a haunting at a house joined to the All Saints Church in Clifton .
The ghost was said to be that of a an old man, and the family living in the house, the Jones's, were terrified by his presence, so much so that Mrs Jones reportedly felt the urge to jump out of a window.
The couple reported seeing a light flickering on one of the walls in the house, and Mr. Jones was said to be so scared that he was reduced to a trembling ball on the floor.

The church and grounds are also believed to be haunted by a monk in black who is said to have returned to watch over treasure he had hidden in the grounds.

A Wonderful Sign from a Beautiful Dog In Spirit!

Emmy visited her mom
In my books, Pets and the Afterlife and Pets and the Afterlife 2, I wrote about many ways that our pets can communicate with us after they pass away. Recently, I received a beautiful experience from Mary, whose beloved dog, Emmy passed away. Mary gave me permission to share her story, in hopes that it helps others understand that their pets can communicate the same way.
  Here's Mary's experience (and a photo of her beautiful dog, Emmy):
 
Hi Rob- My Emmy really came through to let me know she is still with me two weeks after we said goodbye. 
   I was over my son's house in PA babysitting. Emmy always came with me. 
This is the first time [I was there] without her. I was missing her a lot and I said that out loud. 
    Later that night, I was in bed and I was talking to her saying how I wish she was there. It didn't feel right without her there.
   I turned out the light and was trying to fall asleep. I was lying on my side and I felt something nudge me on the side. Then I felt something walking all over the bed. I didn't move because I wanted to concentrate and make sure I wasn't imagining it. It was without a doubt something walking on my bed

   I then said okay go to sleep and it stopped. I turned the light on and I looked around. I had the spread off the bed but on the top sheet I saw little indentations like paw prints! 
   I should have taken a picture but I was stunned. I finally went to sleep and woke up smiling and happy. I been smiling all day. My baby let me know she was with me like she always was.

My Twitter Name Change!

Back in 2010, when I developed a Twitter page for my first book, Ghosts and Spirits, I wasn't very creative. So I named it "GhostMediumBook." 
  Recently, I realized that I could change it, so I made it "RobGutroAuthor" now!
So if you have Twitter and find it easy to follow someone there. here's the new URL: https://twitter.com/RobGutroAuthor
 

A Note to Those Who Haven't Read my Books: and Ask for Readings

Today's blog is addressed to anyone who finds me through interviews, facebook or other means and have never read one of my books (which I wrote to help YOU see signs without needing a medium). 
Some things to know:
1) I don't do readings for a living.  (or make appts for them)
2) I'm a meteorologist in my full time job. 
3) I wrote several books to explain how YOU can see signs from your loved ones without a medium.
4) TO FIND SIGNS:  "Ghosts and Spirits" and "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead" explain how you can see all different signs from those in HUMAN spirit!  
  "Pets and  the Afterlife" and "Pets and the Afterlife 2" explain how pets communicate from spirit.
They're on Amazon .com for less than $10 each- so I recommend you read one to teach yourself what to look for instead of spending
a lot of money on mediums.
5) I don't charge anything for 1 free reading (but I do this on my family time, so be patient =- I answer emails on WEEKENDS only.
6) ONE reading per person please. I get hundreds of requests
7) BUYING a BOOK  helps me keep giving 1 free reading per person
8) Tell me whom you want to connect with, and send me a photo of them.
9) Send me any questions you have and I'll try to answer them.
10) Usually the strongest personality of a person or pet comes through (most others let the more talkative one come through most).
11) When there are several people and or pets you have in spirit, I have to ask for them by name- just like going into a room with living people and pets.. you have to call their name to get the correct spirit's attention!
12) Know that the spirits of our loved ones ARE around us from time to time. Trust your feelings. 
13) Dreams are the easiest way for spirits to let us know they are around
14) Go on Amazon and type in "Rob Gutro" to find my books.
 
Sincerely
Rob Gutro

Tarot Tuesday; The Death Card!

Today's Tarot Tuesday with my friend Joy Andreasen is about the Death Card!

Joy Says: Death is not always about physical passing from this life to the next. Sometimes it symbolizes a huge change or transformation in your life. One aspect of life has to die in order for the next expression of your soul to begin. It is okay to grieve the loss. Namaste.



THE CARD MEANING (From biddytarot.com)
UPRIGHT: Endings, change, transformation, transition
REVERSED: Resistance to change, personal transformation, inner purging

Death Description

The Death card shows the Messenger of Death – a skeleton dressed in black armor, riding a white horse. The skeleton represents the part of the body which survives long after life has left it; the armor symbolizes invincibility and that death will come no matter what. Its dark color is that of mourning and the mysterious, while the horse is the color of purity and acts as a symbol of strength and power. Death carries a black flag decorated with a white, five-petal rose, reflecting beauty, purification and immortality and the number five representing change. Together, these symbols reveal that death isn’t just about life ending. Death is about endings and beginnings, birth and rebirth, change and transformation. There is beauty in death, and it is an inherent part of being alive.
A royal figure appears to be dead on the ground, while a young woman, child and bishop plead with the skeletal figure to spare them. But, as we all know, death spares no one.
In the background, a boat floats down the river, akin to the mythological boats escorting the dead to the afterlife. On the horizon, the sun sets between two towers (which also appear in the Moon Tarot card), in a sense dying each night and being reborn every morning.


BIOGRAPHY: Joy Andreasen is an author, shamanic practitioner, psychic medium, spiritual consultant, Reiki Master Teacher and wedding officiant. She has been giving messages from Spirit for almost twenty years. She teaches spiritual development and shamanic classes in Winchester and Herndon Virginia which are always highly acclaimed.

Bristol, England Hauntings #1: Theatrical Ghosts of Bristol Old Vic

One of my books is called "Ghosts of England on a Medium's Vacation" and is all about the various ghosts I met when I took 2 vacations in England.

Theatrical ghosts of Bristol Old Vic


Old Vic
 
Bristol Old Vic, or The Theatre Royal as it was once known, is Britain's oldest working theatre.

The historic venue on King Street is well-known to ghost-hunters, and both staff and audience members have reported drops in temperature, the sensation of somebody brushing past them, and even a strange, sweet smell that comes and goes.

The theatre is said to be home to at least two ghosts.

The first is a lady dressed in black who is believed to be either famous actress Sarah Siddonss reliving her glory days or Sarah Macready, the widow of a theatre manager who cannot bear to leave the place she loved most in life.
The other ghost is that of a man killed in an accident at the theatre. Known as Richard, the ghost moves objects around backstage and turns lights on and off.

Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead: Be Considerate of Others

    In my book "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead" I provide a lot of insight not only into the many ways that human spirits (and Earthbound ghosts) communicate with us, and things our loved ones in spirit recommend we do in this life to make it better for ourselves and others. 

  One of the main lessons they tell me is: "Be Considerate of Others."   

   Recently, that message has echoed throughout my emails and this applies to all whom email me about free readings (I offer 1 per person and ask you buy a book).  I get up to 40 requests a week and each take 15 minutes. - BTW, there are no other mediums/authors who offer free readings.

   Several times this week I've received emails from grieving folks for whom I have already given a free spirit reading, and they asked for 1, 2, 3 or in one case 7 more free readings about different people and pets who they have lost! That's unfair to everyone else and to me.

   I understand the sense of loss and a desire to want to connect. All of my older relatives have passed. My parents, aunts and uncles,and grandparents have all passed. I've also lost several friends that are my age or younger. Of course I would like to hear from them all, but even as a medium, that's not possible.  

   So, I'm not trying to be mean by telling folks that I don't have time to do multiple readings for every pet, cousin, or relative who passed- but I am one guy, and I do this out of the goodness of my heart, on my family time. So, even from the start in 2010, I've asked people be considerate of ME and of OTHERS if you have already had a reading. There are 8 billion people on this planet and everyone has lost someone. 

  I specifically wrote the books so people could learn to see the signs from spirit themselves without asking (and 99% of the time paying) a medium.  Further, if you buy a book and teach your self, you become self-reliant and you learn and can teach others! (Remember the saying: "Teach a man to fish and they eat for life, give them a fish and they keep asking for another?) 

  NOTE:  Buying a Book after getting a reading is a nice way to thank me and provides me some funds to travel to Animal Rescues where I do fundraisers (again, I use the meager profits from the book to do that)!  (all available on Amazon, and under $10, so they are affordable). 

TOUCHED BY OTHER'S KINDNESS- I've met wonderful people via email readings. One woman made a donation to an animal rescue in my late dog Sprite's name.  A couple in Texas sent me a beautiful arrangement of flowers. These people went over and above and I so appreciate them. You can tell, I've never forgotten the gesture of kindness. 

   
    The Bottom Line is "Please be considerate of others and their time. Don't take advantage of someone's good nature, and let others experience healing as you have."

A Thanks for Sprite's Chapter in Pets and the Afterlife

Last month I received an email from a woman named Mary, who asked about her dog Emmy. She also shared this note of thanks for the chapter I wrote in my book "Pets and the Afterlife" (by Rob Gutro) about making the fateful decision for our dog Sprite in 2013. I'm glad to see that my books are helping bring comfort and understanding to people who have experienced the same deep losses.:

Mary wrote: I finished your book and part of it really talked to me. The part you talk about euthanizing Sprite. You talked about your second guessing yourself. I felt you wrote that section of the book just for me. You described exactly what I was feeling. I am still working through that but it helped me to know that many people feel that way.

Tarot Tuesday: Ace of Wands

Today's Tarot Tuesday with my friend Joy Andreasen is about the Ace of Wands

Joy Says:  Something new is getting ready to birth into your life, but you have to allow Divine Timing to bring it to you at the perfect time! Let go of your attachment to a particular outcome, and just enjoy the moment!


THE CARD MEANING (From biddytarot.com): 
UPRIGHT: Inspiration, new opportunities, growth, potential
REVERSED: An emerging idea, lack of direction, distractions, delays
MEANING: In the Ace of Wands, a hand holding a sprouting wand extends out from a cloud, as if to offer a new opportunity or idea with the potential to grow. The rich, verdant landscape is further confirmation of this growth capability. In the distance on the left sits a castle, representing the promise of opportunities to come, and hills and mountains line the horizon. Their rolling peaks remind us that there will always be challenges along the way, but they are surmountable with enough effort.


BIOGRAPHY: Joy Andreasen is an author, shamanic practitioner, psychic medium, spiritual consultant, Reiki Master Teacher and wedding officiant. She has been giving messages from Spirit for almost twenty years. She teaches spiritual development and shamanic classes in Winchester and Herndon Virginia which are always highly acclaimed.

Vienna's Schonbrunn Palace Ghost of Napoleon Room

In May, I went on vacation and visited the Schonbrunn Palace in Austria. Like any palace or castle that is hundreds of  years old, there are likely people who decided to stay behind as Earth-bound ghosts. This is the first of several blogs of ghosts I encountered there. Here's the story about The Ghost of Napoleon Room !

Napolean Room
THE NAPOLEON ROOM - This room has quite a history. French Emperor Napoleon had visited the Schonbrunn Palace and stayed there. He later offered his daughter, Maria Louise's hand in marriage to one of the Habsburg men after he conquered the territory. So, in 1810, Maria Louise married into the Habsburg family.

ABOUT THE NAPOLEON ROOM - Today known as the Napoleon Room, this was previously the bedroom shared by Franz Stephan and Maria Theresa from 1746. During the nineteenth century it was refurbished several times, as revealed by restoration work carried out in 2007.

 FLASH FORWARD - Napoleon was defeated at Waterloo in 1850.

THE GHOST - As I walked in the Napoleon Room, I experienced a very heavy feeling pressing down on my chest. There was also a dull pain in my chest, as if it were difficult to breathe.
Napoleon II, Portrait by Moritz Daffinger
WHO IS THE GHOST? I learned the Napoleon's son stayed in Vienna, and this was his room. He contracted tuberculosis and died in that very room at age 21. The bed he died on still remains in that room today and there is a marble sculpture of him . Napoleon's son continues to haunt the very room he stayed in during his visits, and the room in which he died.

ABOUT NAPOLEON II- NapolĂ©on François Charles Joseph Bonaparte (20 March 1811 – 22 July 1832), Prince Imperial, King of Rome, known in the Austrian court as Franz from 1814 onward, Duke of Reichstadt from 1818, was the son of Napoleon I, Emperor of the French, and his second wife, Archduchess Marie Louise of Austria. In 1832, he caught pneumonia and was bedridden for several months. His poor health eventually overtook him and on 22 July 1832 Franz died of tuberculosis at Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna.[8] He left no issue; thus the Napoleonic claim to the throne of France passed to his cousin, Louis-NapolĂ©on Bonaparte, who later successfully restored the empire as Napoleon III.

WEIRD FACT- Some of Napoleon II's organs REMAIN in the Schonbrunn Palace. The rest of his remains were transferred to Paris, but his heart and intestines remained in Schonbrunn, which is traditional for members of the Habsburg house. They are in Urn 42 in the "Heart Crypt" (Herzgruft) and his viscera are in Urn 76 of the Ducal Crypt.
**THAT'S why he's here. He wants all of his remains put in the same place next to his father's remains.""
