About the Poetry

All of the poems in this blog are spirit-inspired. Every word came to me each day for a full year while in deep meditation. I simply wrote what I heard onto a pad of paper in my lap with eyes closed – meaningful, multi-stanza verses in mere minutes. I was unaware of each poem’s theme until I transcribed it later word for word. Each day brought new and wondrous discoveries about the world beyond our five physical senses, incredible wisdom, and messages of hope which I share with you in this blog. The last poems received are displayed below on this page, but the entire collection of 365+ poems are archived here in the left-hand column. You can search by topic or keyword using the search box in the upper left corner. May you find among them just the right message which speaks to your heart.

Poem #68 - About the Spirit World

I sat for quite a while today until my finger twitched. Once I got the first words, I could barely keep up with them, they came so quickly ...

Soft as a caress on the skin
The voices speak from within
Listen closely, can you hear it?
It’s the welcome of the spirit

Our world is yours – the very same place
We occupy the self-same space
It’s all a matter of different ohms
Where we call our respective homes

In this world are levels of light
Ours has not what you would call night
For always there’s a constant glow
To light our way wherever we go

In your world you know the sun
But in our realm we don’t have one
Our light comes from a different source
The warmth it comes from God, of course

To get here you must shed the skin
And then true living does begin
For life depends not on the flesh
It’s more important mind and spirit to mesh

The body only serves to hold you back
To keep you on an earthly track
It serves you well while there you live
For there are lessons earth has to give

But once you’re free of earthly chains
Light and love is what remains

The mind goes on; it’s purely aware
Without the body it has no care
But to evolve and keep on growing
Striving always for spiritual knowing

This is why you’ve come to earth
Your task’s the same one from your birth
And it continues when you die
And travel upward t’ward the sky

But know that these are only words
You don’t fly upwards like the birds
It’s a description that you make
But actually, it’s a mistake

For as we said when this poem began
We live and share the world of man
This is how we know of your actions
How we generate in you true reactions

For upon your spirit we do press
Your thoughts and actions to impress
And in this way your growth we guide
By speaking gently at your side


  1. Oh yes, today's wisdom is in response to my question of yesterday, Suzanne. I love this piece...one for me to savor and read again and again. So often I have felt the presence of many beside me...and the influence of their guidance. Always "speaking gently at my side." Thank you, Spirit World, and thank you, Suzanne.

  2. I look forward to the day when I too can feel their presence = I envy you both - but I understand it will come in time when I am ready.

  3. Suzzanne, You have alot of talent in your words and by what I have read so far, I can tell that you are guided by the Light from within (Love).As a new author myself, I am always looking for books that were created from within-not without. I will definately read "The Priest and the Medium."
