Spirit Communication After Death

My latest digital audio book just came out in December. 

How to talk to Me After I’m Gone: Creating a Plan for Spirit Communication by Alexandra Chauran available at Amazon.com, Audible.com. and I-Tunes.

This book gives comfort to those grieving the loss of someone through death.

Grief after death is often linked to a belief that an active relationship with the deceased is over: that the one-sided, passive role of memory is the only link between the living and the dead.

Not necessarily so, says Alexandra Chauran. Spirit communication between the survivor and the deceased is both possible and is often done by using techniques and processes described in her chapters.

This is not a new idea, Chauran explains. Historically spirit communication has been part of many cultures around the world and still plays an active role. In the industrial world, death has been handed off to a commercial third party. There are practical reasons for this, but the rituals that help us accept , assimilate, and create a new relationship with the loved one are often mangled or entirely gone.

The beauty of this book is that it is both insightful spiritually about death, as well as being direct and utterly practical about the legal, financial, and emotional needs of family members who survive. It encompasses a broad range of attitudes and etiquette for the living who wish to communicate with the dead, and in return, the parameters the living may wish to create for those wishing to communication with them when that time arrives. In other words, Chauran broadens the conversation of death in our culture that too often handles this topic with fear, embarrassment, or distaste.

Welcome to my blog. I narrate audio books . Samples of my narrations are listed on the “My Narrations” page. When I was a kid, I was read to each night by my father. Now I read professionally.

I also work part-time at Regis University as their archivist. I organize, and make available the university’s historic records. More on those records in future blogs.

My Regis job also involves the university’s rare books.  One, for example, is The Historie of the World in Five Books, 1614, by Sir Walter Raleigh. A favorite of Queen Elizabeth 1, he was slapped into jail when Raleigh opposed offering the English crown to James VI of Scotland after Elizabeth died childless. Despite opposition, James become king of England, and promptly sent Sir Walter to the Tower of London. “Gives me time to write,” said Sir Walter [who wouldn’t like that?] and filled his cell with volumes from his library and those lent to him by friends.

Sir Walter started his book but ran into trouble again. In The Preface, he wrote a summary of English monarchs, in which he described Henry VIII as “a merciless prince”. King James, however, believed rulers were appointed by God and their actions should not be questioned. He started proceedings for Sir Walter’s execution for treason. It was an unpopular move because Sir Walter was a revered English statesman. James reconsidered. Like most kings, he was short of cash, so he released Sir Walter, who promised he could find gold in Central America. Alas, Sir Walter sailed back to England empty handed, and soon after was beheaded.

Is the writer’s life ever easy? Perhaps that is why I narrate books instead.
