Whenever I feel sad because I miss Prince, he always makes his presence known to me, saying “Hey, I’m here. I’m always here. Don’t cry.” We live in a grand illusion believing that death means gone forever.
It was soon after the news of Prince’s passing, I found myself feeling so confused. The reason was, in my heart I felt that he was alive. I couldn’t understand why I was feeling this way, especially since I wasn’t a fan or knew him personally. I went to a friend who is a psychic medium to get clarity on this and he came through the reading. I will tell you more about this another time. For now, I will tell you, he was there on the other side, sitting on a throne, wearing a crown, telling me “Im Alive!” in the most flamboyant way possible.
For me, learning that someone on the other side was present with me, someone who was famous, that I never knew personally was just completely shocking. But I’m here to tell you the truth about things that don’t often get spoken of in this scientific age. There is an after life, as many religions speak of. It may not be exactly the way that it is portrayed. But the after life is real. This is why it is so important that you take care of your soul. In Prince’s movie, Under The Cherry Moon, he says the line “Life is a parade”. And on the first track of his HITNRUN Phase 1 album, he samples the beginning part of Let’s Go Crazy where he says “Dearly beloved, we are gather here to get through this thing called life” and he replaces the word life with the word show. This is his way of saying to you that life is a show. It’s not real. It’s a movie or video game that we live in. Kind of like in The Matrix, but not quite, less sci-fi and no robots. Sometimes it feels unfair that there is death, but life on Earth is just a temporary condition. We come here as souls to learn by playing a role, and we go “home” when we finish our lessons.
The first time I heard the song, Comeback from the Crystal Ball album, I cried. I cried not only because what i’s a sad song, but because I knew it was true. I was lying in bed, listening to the song and there he was, Prince holding my hand. I felt his energy so intensely. The song is about the death of his son, Boy Gregory, who died soon after his birth. In the lyrics, he refers to his son as “sweet wind”. Here in the lyrics, you can see that when he says “aftershow”, he means how spirits hang around after their passing and how you can feel their presence.
Walking up the stairs
Just the afternoon
Sweet wind blew
Not a moment 2 soon
I cried when I realized
That sweet wind was U
Spirits come and spirits go
Some stick around 4 the aftershow
Don’t have 2 say I miss U
Cause I think U already know
If U ever lose someone
Dear 2 U
Never say the words their gone
They’ll come back, yeah
Tears go here
Prince knew very well about the after life. He talked about it through out his music. So it’s no surprise that he would come back to tell us about it. Don’t be sad abut death, it’s just a transition. The human body expires, but the soul never dies. And they can hear you on the other side, more than you will ever know.
