Something that is the secret to Prince’s genius is that he channeled his music, meaning he tapped into a higher source to create his music. Intuition and creativity are one in the same. When you tap into one, you tap into the other. I discovered this for myself when I worked on myself spiritually, developing my intuition and finding that my creativity was flowing as a result. When you block either one, the other can be blocked as well. Many great artists work this way, only that they don’t realize it, so they cannot tell you about what they are doing creatively is tapping into their intuition.
When you tap into intuition, it unlocks all kinds of abilities. The creative flow becomes unstoppable, hence this is why Prince was so prolific, he recorded a new album almost every year and he still had a vault full of unreleased songs that they could release a new album every year for the next hundred years.
One of the keys to tuning into intuition is to surrender. There is no force involved, no trying. It just is. It is a sense of allowing and trusting. A song that I feel really captures this feeling is Future Soul Song from his 20Ten album. I want to show you what he was conveying in the lyrics. The song is truly beautiful, one of my favourites.
I had a dream last night
That I was flying for the first time
And in the dream I could pilot my flight
With the thoughts in my mind
Since there wasn’t any up or down
Everybody was all around
When we sang, we all sang together
Oh, what a beautiful sound
He was flying in his dream, perhaps this was a lucid dream and he says he could pilot his flight with the thought in his mind. The mind is also what creates reality in the general sense. “Up or down” conveys hat there is no “class”, everyone is equal in status and were all singing the same song harmoniously. In the spirit world, there is no hierarchy. He is talking about unity conciseness here, oneness. Everyone is in the same energetic vibration. Vibration is most often expressed in soon, hence song and music, he uses this idea to convey the high vibration of humanity.
I had a dream last night
That I was singing and the sound of my voice
Seemed to come from every mountain top
Like it had no choice
And when my voice rose, so did the sun
When the trees sang the harmony as one
Every living soul sang the most beautiful
Melody ever sung
In his dream he was singing, he felt oneness with his surroundings. This energetic vibration was one with nature. He is using the idea of sound as energy to convey this.As his energy rose, so did the vibration of the Earth. This is a spiritual teaching here, that as your energy rises, so does that of your surroundings.You affect each other energetically.
Before the war the only words and language said
Let there be light
Those that can see it are the ones who believe it
And put up no fight
He is referring to the beginning of time in the phrase, “Let there be light”, a Biblical reference to Genesis. The word is what creates, one could also say “manifests”. Those that can see it, or understand it, believe this truth and don’t fight about it or resist it. The war is on your spiritual beliefs.
And in the absence of fear and control
Is the sound of the surrendering soul
Louder than the dogmatic persecution
Now sing it like you got that right
When one is free from fear-based teachings from religion, one sees the truth loudly. The use of the word surrender is interesting, as I told you above, that intuition requires surrender, that you surrender your egotistical thoughts and listen to what comes through. It requires that you be still and quiet. However, the truth is louder than what others may say to try t brainwash you into believing otherwise. The soul can easily recognize the truth.
In the last bit of the song, he whispers “Guess what, you are soul family to me”. That is because we are all connected on a soul level.
