Comfort From Beyond to Grieving Pet Parents

If you’re like me, our pets really are our children. They teach us life lessons, they bring us joy, and they break our hearts at the same time. Please enjoy this article by Rob Gutro, and learn more about him at the end of the post. An interview with Rob for The Big Séance Podcast is in the works, so stay tuned.

 

Comfort From Beyond to Grieving Pet Parents
By Rob Gutro

The loss of a pet is like the loss of a child to pet parents. The love we share with our pets never dies, and there’s proof that our pets do communicate with us from the other side, just as people do who pass. 

Pet parents like me think about and mourn the loss of their pets often. I think about my late dogs Buzz and Sprite every day, just as people mourn the passing of their human children. Why? Because, we taught them how to go to the bathroom, bathed them, groomed them, took them to (obedience) school and was excited at their graduation, watch them interact with others, take them to the doctor when they’re sick, play with them, teach them, make friends, learn, love etc. They share with us love, anger, fear, and excitement just like human children do. Event Dr. Stanley Coren tested dogs and proved many have the intelligence of a 3-4 year old child. Dogs know when we’re disappointed in them if they tear something up – and we come home, find out and they cringe. They know when we’re sick and stay by our side, like human kids do.  The only difference to me is that our pets don’t do have careers, fall in love, move out and take care of us when we’re old.

We also have to make the decision to put our “pet child” to final rest, something human parents don’t really contend with unless in certain tragic circumstances and that is the hardest part of unconditional love. My dogs are my children. I am responsible for feeding, caring, loving them and keeping them healthy, just as humans are with human children.

Anyone that has had dogs, cats, horses and some birds know they understand words and body language.

They have the intelligence and ability to send signs to the living after they pass. Learn about the different levels of intelligence that a pet develops and how they are used to communicate signs to the living after the pet passes away.

I’m a dog owner, dog rescue volunteer, medium/paranormal investigator for Inspired Ghost Tracking of Md. and scientist. I wrote my new book “Pets and the Afterlife” to bring comfort to people (like me) who lost a pet. I’m a dog dad who lost two of my own beloved dogs and both have communicated with me, just as everyone’s pets are trying to get messages to their parents. The book provides a lot of different ways that pets can send us messages. 

As a scientist I’ve always tried to prove messages. So, I’ve included amazing new scientific studies that prove our pets have emotions and personalities. There’s also science behind why living pets can sense entities. Do you ever see your dog or cat staring at an empty corner of the room? It may very well be because your Aunt Betty’s spirit has come to visit, or there may be a ghostly cat that never crossed over from the previous owner. Because pets have the ability to sense Earth-bound ghosts or spirits (who have crossed into the light) dogs are especially good on paranormal investigations, and I took my Weimaraner on one and she helped solve a mysterious canine mystery.

Did you know that when it’s our time to go, that our dog or cat will be waiting for us? It happened to my mom and my dad when they passed. If you’re like me, you have your dog or cats ashes at home and they help keep your pet with you from time to time. One of the boxes of ashes is my late puppy Buzz, who turned out to be the world’s best canine communicator. His story, a story of our late dog Sprite’s butterfly message and stories from many others of how their pets gave messages from beyond are included.

Three of the chapters are written by well-known mediums whose own dogs returned and communicated with them to assure them they were at peace. The book features medium Barb Mallon, Ruthie Larkin the Beantown Medium and Troy Cline. A fellow dog rescue volunteer also provided an amazing story of how a ghost dog rescued her!

I wrote the book to help others find hope, peace and comfort that our pets are still around, and that the love that binds lives forever.

Energy Formulas and some thoughts on “My Son and the Afterlife”

One of the books I’ve been reading this summer is My Son and the Afterlife: Conversations from the Other Side by Elisa Medhus, MD. If you’ve ever visited ChannelingErik.com, that’s Elisa. Much of the book comes from the site, which she started not only to work through her grieving, but to serve as a place to share the channeled messages that she received from her son Erik, who committed suicide in 2009. These channeled messages come mostly from Erik’s spirit communicator (medium), Jamie Butler

I was introduced to ChannelingErik.com two or three years ago, and was immediately blown away and overwhelmed with the wealth of information and transcribed sessions between Elisa, Jamie, and Erik. In fact, one of my very first blog posts featured the site. For many, the site is controversial, and you’ll find several sites expressing skeptical opinions about it all. Elisa herself claims to have gone from skeptic to believer because of this whole journey. If you know me, you know I can’t NOT doubt a bit when I read things like this, but who wouldn’t want this to be authentic and real? I do my best to keep my ego and somewhat analytical mind in the corner while I read his messages, and I find them fascinating!  

As I said, the blog itself is a bit overwhelming… and that’s perhaps why I haven’t been a regular reader in a long time. But I’ve really enjoyed the book so far. Having it all organized in book form has really been helpful to me. After giving some background and describing the tragic moments that changed the family’s life forever, Elisa goes right into what I can only assume is a kind of “best of” from Erik. At the moment I’m only halfway through the book, but so far Erik has given answers to most of the typical questions that people wonder about the Afterlife. 

 

“Energy Formulas”

I don’t know why this fascinated me so much, but I immediately thought to blog on it when I read it. It’s so simple, really. 

Elisa asked Erik how it was possible for him, or spirits in general I suppose, to create smells, good or bad, so that we on Earth notice or sense them. Erik has been known to be a jokester, and so he apparently will often create “rank sock smells”, for example.

He answered by saying “everything has an energy formula on Earth, so I just replicate that energy formula, and I put it in that space.” So stop to think about the energy formula that your perfume or cologne is made up of, or even something we see as solid, like your desk or coffee cup. He says that what we end up sensing or smelling doesn’t actually exist. It’s just the energy formula that we’re sensing.

And do you know what I instantly thought of? It made me think of binary code, or the 1s and 0s used in computer programming, and even the recording of CDs. When would I ever think about or even try to understand binary code? A recording in a .wav or mp3 file, or from a CD playing, can potentially put me in a kind of euphoric state, or make me cry, or transport me to another world. The music and the orchestra isn’t sitting here in my room or living in my headphones, but the code is. So when I stop to think about it now, I totally get it. I mean, I don’t think it’s a concept that we’ll ever completely understand until we get such knowledge and experience on the Other Side, but I’m beginning to process it.

 

Isn’t it fascinating?

Whether you choose to believe all of this or not, isn’t it truly fascinating when you think about it? Or… am I just a nerd? One of my earliest readers and blogging friends, Ashley, knows a lot about Erik and the CE site, and she created the Facebook group for fans and readers of ChannelingErik.com. I hope she chimes in!  *HINT HINT*

 

A Message for Erik

This message is for Erik, if he’s reading. I know you’ve been known to visit and play tricks on many of the visitors and readers of ChannelingErik.com. I’ve made the request before, but I’m sure you’re busy. Consider this a formal invitation to bug the hell out of me for experimental purposes! Bring it. And I’ll keep everyone posted. 

 

Peace!
