This is the final post for Year 2 of this blog. In the new year, we’ll return to finish the Rainbow Bridge posts, but before we flip over the calendar, I want to give you an easy way to look back over the year we’ve just finished.
So, here’s a year-end summary that contains a brief recap of 2022, along with a listing of its posts, including links for easy access.
(For the Year 1 recap, click here. Also note there’s now a new menu option on the site that will take you directly to these year-end summaries … Blog At A Glance. Or, if you’re new to the blog and are simply wondering what the heck it’s all about, check out What Is This?)
Year 2 Highlights
In addition to sharing how Spirit has shown up in my life … simply to demonstrate how it can for all of us … this year presented an amazing opportunity …
We were treated to a first-hand accounting of how the Other Side works.
From a six-year-old …
I kid you not! (Er, so to speak …)
Yes, it was a surprise conversation initiated by my grandson Huxley. He didn’t tell us everything about how the spirit world works of course, but he did give us some pretty cool insights.
Insights that have also been discovered by experts in the fields of science, hypnotherapy, mediumship and more.
So, as you peruse the list of the year’s posts below, I would encourage you to check out the series of Kid Wisdom posts where I share this magical encounter … and I also cross-check with related findings from experts.
One other highlight from the year was a discovery I made in my investigations that was so profound, I paused the telling of my own experiences with Spirit to share it.
And what was this profound discovery?
A specific revelation from scientific research into how life really works … one that shows us how to unlock an innate ability we each have to physically and tangibly uplift ourselves, our loved ones, AND the world.
An ability so simple, it’s amazing.
You’ll find this described in the Heart Magic posts.
The blog’s original mission remains the same …
Living With Spirit remains committed to be a resource for those who are starting to suspect there is more to this life than what we perceive through our physical senses.
It tackles what this means, how it shows up, where to learn more, and most importantly, how to make practical use of it in your life.
And what do I mean by “it” … ?
The Universe, Source, God, All-That-Is, Creator, Divine, or whatever name you wish to use. I still mostly call it Spirit or the Universe.
Navigational Reminders …
The blog website has four categories of posts (menu options):
- My Back Story … how I got started in all this

Thanks for your continued interest!
As mentioned above, I’ll be back in the New Year to continue our exploration of what it is that happens to our pets after they leave this life … and whether they really do continue to communicate with us!
(Communicate?? But, but … animals CAN’T TALK!! Yes, yes, I heard you last time … twice, ahem! Just be patient, because that’s some of what we’ll look at in Part 2.)
