As I make this last post for the calendar year … which is the first year of my blog … it occurs to me that I’ve posted a ton of information. And now it’s getting impossible to find anything … yikes!
If you’re wanting to refer back to something you read here previously, are new to the blog, or maybe just want a reminder of what you can find on this site, I’m hoping this post will help.
Quick Refresher … What the heck is this blog all about?
Are you sensing there’s more to life than we know … ?
Not sure what to make of it all … ?
Want to learn more but are worried people might think you’re crazy … ?
I get it. I created the Living With Spirit blog as a resource for those who are starting to suspect there is more to this life than what we perceive through our physical senses.
It is a blog which uses my own life experience, including the devastating loss of my husband in 2007, to tackle what this means, how it shows up, where to learn more, and, most importantly, how to make practical use of it in your life.
What is “it” exactly … ? Well, “it” would be the Universe, Source, God, All-That-Is, Creator, Divine, or whatever name you want to use. I mostly call it Spirit, or sometimes the Universe.
Okay, what’s in this blog and how do I find it … ?
The blog website has three sections of posts: My Back Story, Life With Spirit, and Resources. Each of these is briefly described below, followed by a complete list of their posts to-date. (Note: The Blog At A Glance section was a new addition in Nov 2022.)
On the blog, there are a couple of ways to search the posts … the standard Search feature and also Tags. The Tags feature allows posts to be categorized in various ways.
If you click on Tags, you’ll see the list of the categories I’ve included. There are about 20 in total, such as Spirit Communication, Guides & Angels, Law of Attraction, Dreams, Science, and so forth.
However, the categories are fairly broad if you’re trying to track down something specific, so that’s why I’ve briefly listed here all the posts I made this year. For each post, I have indicated when it was posted, a brief description of its key theme(s), and its length (number of words).
You’ll see several posts made in February, as I seeded the blog before going live, but in general, I post about twice a month.
So, what were all these posts … ?
Here’s a brief synopsis:
My Back Story (9 posts)
I started this blog with My Back Story. In addition to providing context, the overriding point of this story is to illustrate how the Universe … or Spirit … can show up in life … for ANY of us!
This is a nine-part story of how this spiritual journey started for me when … like you perhaps … I really started to suspect there was more to this life than what was readily apparent.
This story shares the role the Universe played in my life (without me even knowing it!) to nudge and help me along the way … through the untimely death of my husband, Ron, and into a complete about-face for my life.

Life With Spirit (16 posts)
The Life With Spirit section picks up where My Back Story ends and is designed to continue to show how Spirit can help ALL of us!
For those suffering the grief of loss … these posts carry on the story of how Spirit continued to help me move through the grief of losing the love of my life.
For everyone … they show how Spirit can help any of us, using examples of how Spirit continues to assist me … nudging me onto the right path and supporting me through life’s inevitable challenges.
They describe lessons I’ve learned from Spirit, and highlight tools, techniques and signs to communicate with those on the Other Side.

Resources (17 posts)
This section is for those who are intrigued and wish to learn more about life’s Bigger Picture and how it all works.
These posts are about resources (primarily books for now) that I have found especially useful in doing this, and what makes them so meaningful.
One of the tags I use in this section is FAVOURITES. Although I recommend ALL of the resources I post, this tag marks those I’ve found particularly powerful, and in a few cases, actually life-changing … for me, at least.
You can use the tags feature on the blog to find my FAVOURITES, but I’ve also asterisked them here for ease of reference.
