Paranormal Q&A: How much truth is there to old myths from the pre-industrial era about spirits and medium work

Each week, I'll answer a question about the paranormal, whether a general question, or one about human or animal ghosts (Earthbound) or spirits (crossed over). Here's this week's question: 

Q: How much truth is there to old myths from the pre-industrial era about spirits and medium work?

A: Since the dawn of time, ghosts and spirits have been trying to contact the living. Since I'm unsure what myths you're referring to (there are many) I'll just say that there have always been people who have the gift to sense them. In ancient times, and depending upon the location or the culture, those people were either revered as gifted or executed as sorcerers.

Cave paintings by indigenous Australians date back 28,000 years, some depicting skulls, bones, spirits and the afterlife. Other cave paintings in Indonesia date back a further 10,000 years!

Of course, today, we know that mediums are gifted and use their abilities to help others.

Read the "Double Murder Ghost Investigation" in the book "Case Files of Inspired Ghost Tracking"

A new book called "Case Files of Inspired Ghost Tracking," by best-selling paranormal author Rob Gutro takes readers on paranormal investigations into private and historic homes where ghosts were traumatizing families. Rob, a medium in the Inspired Ghost Tracking paranormal group, announced the release of his seventh paranormal book that brings readers along on investigations and reveals some bizarre and shocking things the group found and how they helped the ghosts and families.     
TO BUY ON AMAZON: https://tinyurl.com/yba6ofbj


"When earthbound ghosts have traumatized families in their own homes, Inspired Ghost Tracking (IGT) of Maryland has gone in to cross them over," Gutro said. "Every case is different, too. Some have had earthbound ghosts that were friendly, others were not. IGT experienced a lot of bad energies that caused people to become physically sick or mentally traumatized. IGT investigators had to figure who, what, when and why things were happening, to finally bring peace to the living and the dead."  

In this collection of IGT cases, you’ll read about the "Burned Ghost," ghosts of two different time periods in one home, dark things that Ouija boards brought into homes, a very haunted Maryland mansion, many ghosts of Baltimore’s Federal Hill, a ghostly attachment, a Steelworker’s ghost, poltergeist activity, the famous IGT “Double Murder Ghost Investigation” and many more.

You'll find answers to questions like why ghosts choose to stay in a place, the differences and similarities between ghosts and spirits, why energy is the key to the paranormal and much more.

Although Rob has become known as a "Pet Medium" through the success of his best-selling books "Pets and the Afterlife" and "Pets and the Afterlife 2," he also connects with human earthbound ghosts and spirits.

Gutro is the first in the paranormal field to make the distinction between earthbound ghosts and spirits who have crossed over. Rob has three books about his experience with human ghosts and spirits, called "Ghosts and Spirits," "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead," and "Ghosts of England on a Medium's Vacation," and most recently, "Kindred Spirits: How a Medium Befriended a Spirit."   

Rob Gutro has been featured in the Washington Post and nationally syndicated radio programs like "Coast to Coast AM." Rob is a volunteer with Dachshund and Weimaraner rescues and gives fundraising lectures for animal rescues around the U.S., teaching grieving pet parents how pets communicate from the afterlife.

Paranormal Q&A: What is your view on exorcisms and the Christian view of spirits?

Each week, I'll answer a question about the paranormal, whether a general question, or one about human or animal ghosts (Earthbound) or spirits (crossed over). Here's this week's question: 

Q: What is your view on exorcisms and the Christian view of spirits?

A: First, I don't believe in "demons." I think that what we call demons are just life forms in spirit from other solar systems that made their way to Earth. Like wild animals that get defensive, other lifeforms that don't know us would get defensive and perhaps take over the body of a living person.

The concept of demons was conjured up to frighten people into behaving.  Exorcisms work on the principal of positive emotional energy, not religion. When a holy man, who are generally good of heart and has a lot of positive energy, tries to expel a ghost or spirit who is a bad person with a lot of negative energy, if the positive energy is strong enough, it will dispel or move the negative energy out (as a scientist, I believe it's all about energy).

Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead
Positive emotional energies are faith, hope and love. Negative emotional energies are fear, anger, depression, anxiety, hatred,. - It's because of positive emotional energy that prayer works (from any religion or non-religion)- It's the projection of faith-energy.  So, you need not be a priest or Christian to expel a bad ghost or spirit from someone  - and possessions are  rare.  

My book "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead" has a chapter on "demons."

Q&A: Spirit Voices Sound Like They're in Another Room, Early Experiences, Haunted Kitchen

Image credit: Pennlive.com
If you've heard voices that sound like their coming from another room, and there's no one there, they are likely spirits visiting. That's what happened to Lynne, who recently wrote me to tell me her experience. Learn WHY they sound like they're in another room..  
 Lynne  also saw 2 ghostly figures in a church, and talked about that, too. Here's the story:

LYNNE'S PARANORMAL VOICE EXPERIENCE:  Rob, have you ever heard voices like people talking far enough away you cant make out what they are saying but the voices are actually from a vent in a bedroom nearby. This has happened to me two times growing up.  

MY ANSWER:  Yes, spirits (who have crossed over and come back to visit) and even Earth Bound ghosts always sound like they are talking in another room.  That's because it takes a LOT of energy for a spirit or ghost to make an audible sound. In actuality, they are likely in the SAME room as you are.

LYNNE'S EXPERIENCE AS A TEEN: When I was about 15 I was home alone from school not feeling well so I took a bath. When the water stopped running I heard voices in the living room i figured I left the tv on. I wrapped a towel around me and went out to turn the TV off. It was never on. Do you think as a young person I had the talent to see/hear ghosts?  Nothing has happened in my older years. Why?

MY ANSWER:  We are more apt to hear and see spirits or earthbound ghosts at a younger age, since we haven't yet been forced to explain things with our logical minds. We are more intuitive  at that age, and tend to trust our feelings. 

LYNNE'S CHURCH GHOST EXPERIENCE: When I was around 30 years old, I was in my church's dining area. I put the soup on before the service, and later I went down to check on it three quarters through service. As I walked into the large dining area I saw two white images on each side of the pot.

New England Puritan Lore: The Devil Made Many Appearances

The Devil in DC  Comics' Batman Family #1, by Mike Grell
The Patriot Ledger newspaper in Quincy,Massachusetts publishes a "Haunted New England" feature every month, and this month is about "the Devil" making appearances during Puritan times.

I’m Eryn Dion, Regional Engagement Editor for Gannett New England, and this is Haunted New England. 

Turns out the Devil made quite a few appearances around New England in the colonial days, getting around to the First Church of Ipswich, outside the JC Solmonese School in Norton, near the Center School in neighboring Easton, all in Massachusetts. He made the trek up to Maine and left his mark on a stone outside the Manchester Meeting House, and came back down to North Kingstown, Rhode Island , leaving behind strange, triangle-shaped impressions or deep human-sized depressions in otherwise solid rock. These are just some of the more well-known examples - I’m sure many, many small New England towns have their own local legends passed down to kids just like me. 

But all of this begs the question - was Satan just jumping around ye olde thyme New England, burning holes in rocks wherever he went? And if not, why did our ancestors see weird holes in rocks and automatically think the Devil did it? 

To find the answer, like most things, the Devil is in the details. 

Remember, New England, and our country as a whole, was founded by Puritans. The first New England colonies were religious settlements, and families came to these colonies from England and beyond largely for religious purposes. Their religious beliefs were so strong, so integral to themselves and their lives, that they were willing to uproot their families and leave behind everything to cross the Atlantic on a musty, cramped boat and come to a land where they would literally be starting from square zero. Not even a Dunkin Donuts.

Religion ruled Puritan life and their whole existence revolved around working hard, going to church, dying (at a relatively young age) and going to heaven. That was it for them. God controlled their lives. Good things came from God and God’s favor, bad things came from the Devil, but also God not stepping in to do you a solid. 

It’s also important to know that, to the Puritans, the Devil wasn’t some amorphous figure representing evil. He was a real dude. You could meet him in the flesh while out riding your horse or toiling in the fields. You could even fight him, like the Rev. George Whitefield did in 1740 in the First Church of Ipswich, which, according to legend, led to their pair of Devil’s footprints when Whitefield got into a wrestling match with the Devil and pushed him off the church’s steeple. You could make a deal with him and sell your soul to get ahead, or worship him to gain his favor in the form of witchy powers. 

And life in early Colonial America was, frankly, scary. Death was rampant, from starvation, disease, or conflict with Native Americans. Any injury could easily become infected. The winters were harsh and cruel. Children died at a young age. Families toiled long hours just to sustain the household, nevermind make a modest living. It makes sense, for them to believe the Devil was everywhere, because to them he was. He was in every failed crop, every drought, every sick cow, every time they ran out of firewood or every ferocious hurricane blown ashore. And if someone managed to get ahead? If they found success, whether as a politician or a businessperson? Well, the Devil was in them, too. 

So when our colonial forefathers happened upon a rock in the woods with mysterious, triangle impressions, I think it was easy for them to point and say, “Well, speak of the Devil. There he was.”

In the news- Woman sees her dog's face in the clouds hours after pet's death

Pets have a lot of ways to communicate from spirit, and although using clouds isn't common, it's effective and a matter of timing. That is, because clouds are dynamic, and change shape within a minute or minutes, catching sight of a cloud at the exact moment that it may resemble your pet is because your pet in spirit influenced you to look up, in that direction, at that exact time. If you read my books, Pets and the Afterlife and Pets and the Afterlife 2, you'll learn there's no such thing as a coincidence. Here's the story from MSNBC

 Woman sees her dog's face in the clouds hours after pet's death 
 Hours after her dog, Sunny, passed away, Lucy Ledgeway found comfort in the skies.

June 30, 2020, 12:51 PM EDTBy Ashley Capoot 

Lucy Ledgeway said goodbye to her 14-year-old dog, Sunny, who passed away in her father’s arms at their home after suffering a seizure on June 20. However, her furry friend wasn’t gone for long; Ledgeway spotted the canine's face in the clouds just hours after she died.

Sunny was a Parson Russell terrier that Ledgeway, 19, and her family rescued when she was just 6 years old. Ledgeway, who lives in the city of York in northern England, told TODAY that Sunny was funny and loving, but she also had a lot of health issues. She was diagnosed with diabetes last year, and the vets told her family that she only had between 12 to 15 months left to live.

Sunny had been taking insulin for 13 months before her health started to deteriorate, and Ledgeway said her family had a serious scare a couple of days before she passed. Sunny had been throwing up and having trouble going to the bathroom, and her family and veterinarians thought she was going to have to be euthanized. To their surprise, Sunny managed to perk up for one last good day with her family. “She was in bed up until around 2 p.m., and then my brother got a bag of crisps out and started eating and she started sniffing up,” Ledgeway told TODAY. “It gave us a bit of hope, like, ‘Oh, so she’ll be all right.’” In fact, Sunny’s demeanor had improved so much that her veterinarians decided there was no need for her to be put down.

Ledgeway said Sunny seemed to be feeling better that day, but she died the following morning. Ledgeway said she was feeling emotional and told her boyfriend that she wanted to see a sign in the sky that proved Sunny was all right. Two hours later, she went outside and said she saw Sunny’s face in the clouds.

Paranormal Q&A: What are some things people can do at home to amplify their connection to the spirit realm?

Each week, I'll answer a question about the paranormal, whether a general question, or one about human or animal ghosts (Earthbound) or spirits (crossed over). Here's this week's question: 

Q: What are some things people can do at home to amplify their connection to the spirit realm?

A: People need to trust their feelings of their surroundings. Positive emotional people can tune in much better than negative people. Positive emotions, love, faith and hope - remove blocks from getting in touch with loved ones in spirit (who have crossed over).   Also, meditation or just sitting in a quiet place, even in the shower (where I get a lot of messages) when I'm at peace.  Play soft instrumental music, think of peaceful settings. Relax your body and mind. Those things help amplify the connection.

A New Review of Pets and the Afterlife by Rob Gutro

 If you have read any of my books, I would greatly appreciate even a short review on Amazon.com, because (with the millions of books out there), it makes the book more visible to readers. Here is a recent review of my book "Pets and the Afterlife" by Rob Gutro:

 A Soothing Balm After the Loss of a Pet June 25, 2020
I was devastated after I lost my precious dog to a coyote attack. The grief was heavy and the next day, I searched for a resource to get me through the first rough week. After finding a podcast interview with Rob Gutro about losing your pet, I sought out his book and ordered the digital version so I wouldn't have to wait for it to arrive. I read it e-cover to e-cover. By the time I was done, I not only found a sense of peace from our loss but a deep feeling of connection to our beloved dog. Thank you, Rob, for this wonderful book! If you are missing your lost pet, I recommend that you buy this book. I will be getting his other books too.
