I was recently led to look deeper in Prince’s song called 7, which was released on the Love Symbol album. This album was released in 1992 before he changed his name to the unpronounceable symbol in order for him to get out of his record contract. By getting out of the contract, he freed himself from the contractual obligations and was able to release new works at the pace he desired. An early version of the Love Symbol has appeared as early as1982, where it was just the male and female signs merged together (For more insight, see this post). Also interesting to note, 1982 is my birth year. This is when our twin soul merging on Earth began. The current version you see today was reworked when he asked his designers to further develop the symbol for the Love Symbol album.
Prince was always intuitive and followed guidance from a higher source. He has said in interviews that it was through meditation that he was told to change his name to the symbol, which in turn became the solution for getting out of the trappings his recording contract. Here is the secret of what the symbol means. It is the merging of male and female counterpart energies, as in twin flame souls. Many mistake it for gender ambiguity (or as the media likes to call it, gender fluidity) because they don’t understand the twin flame concept. Twin flames are deeply connected to each other and channel each other’s energy. The horn-like stroke in the logo curving into a spiral is symbolic of the cosmic journey that the twins go through in order to reunite with each other (this information is told to me by Prince in spirit). On a side note, Prince was a Gemini, which is the zodiac sign represented by the twins. In his later performances during the mid-2000s, he had a pair of twin dancers to represent the twin concept. Prince was always looking for his twin counterpart, which is why people around him said that he seemed to dated a certain “type”.
The concept for the 7 song is actually about twin flames. Though he might not have had a name for what he was looking for in his life, he certainly did make music about it. Often times, Prince’s music videos are an extension of the song’s original concept, so they reveal visual clues about what the song is about.
Here is the music video for it, and below are my interpretation notes with the lyrics. (This video was pulled from YouTube)
All 7 and we’ll watch them fall
They stand in the way of love
And we will smoke them all
With an intellect and a savoir-faire
The number 7 in Numerology is known as God’s number. often used to symbolize spirituality and divine power. Although one’s initial impression is to ask who are the 7, one might assume that they are his enemies. However, in this case, it symbolizes the seven deadly sins. We know he is referring to himself having been guilty of these sins because in the music video he destroys the alter ego versions of himself with beams of light. These sins are what stand in the way of true love. When he says ” we will smoke them all”, he means that he will cleanse him soul from these sins. Smudging is the ritual burning of plant material to cleanse and purify energies. He will defeat these evils with his intelligence and knowledge.
No one in the whole universe
Will ever compare
I am yours now and u are mine
And together we’ll love through
All space and time, so don’t cry
One day all 7 will die
He is speaking of the greatest love that can never compare to anyone else, that is his twin flame. Twin flames have a cosmic connection that transcends through space and time reality. Their bond is unbreakable. It is their love that will defeat what stands in the way of love and the Ascension of humanity.
And I saw an angel come down unto me
In her hand she holds the very key
Words of compassion, words of peace
And in the distance an army’s marching feet (1,2,3,4 – 1,2,3,4)
But behold, we will watch them fall
The angel he speaks of is the higher self of his twin flame. We know this because the angel represented in the video is Mayte, appearing both as the angel and as the incarnate. Mayte is used to represent the twin flame counterpart to him. The angel gives him the kay to love and defeating what stands in the way. The key is the practice of compassion and peace. The army he refers to is the external world and the dark ones that rule over them. In the video there is a group of male and female pairings dressed identical to Prince and Mayte. This is representative of the legion of twin flames incarnate on Earth that Prince and his twin flame lead.
And we lay down on the sand of the sea
And before us animosity will stand and decree
That we speak not of love only blasphemy
And in the distance, 6 others will curse me
But that’s alright
4 I will watch them fall
And we will see a plague and a river of blood
And every evil soul will surely die in spite of
Their 7 tears, but do not fear
4 in the distance, 12 souls from now
U and me will still be here – we will still be here
He is saying that people will accuse him of speaking blasphemy in his message of love. Dark forces will try to interfere by twisting his words and get in his way. But he will defeat them regardless. The “plague and a river of blood” is referring to the darkness and evil taking place in the world. But do not be afraid, as love always wins in the end.
There will be a new city with streets of gold
The young so educated they never grow old
And a, there will be no death 4 with every breath
The voice of many colours sings a song
That’s so bold
Sing it while we watch them fall
The darkness will be defeated and we will enter into “a new city with streets of gold”. He is talking about the process of Ascension. He is referring to Heaven n Earth as it is referenced in the Bible;a book of Revelation. Humanity will reach a state of immortality. “The voice of many colours” refers to humanity, all people of every race.
This song is prophetic of the current times we live in as the process of Ascension continues. I would say that this song is a narrative of the twin flame concept and their role in Ascension. Studying this song has given me some more insight on my personal role as a twin flame. I didn’t quite understand that my work in writing this blog would be important, but as I am seeing it, Prince and I are holding the light as role models for other twin flames. The twin flame concept is new to many and extremely misunderstood. People are looking to celebrity couples and projecting them as a kind of role model because there is that desire for an example they can refer to. I can assure you that I take my role very seriously and will continue to spread our message of love and compassion.
Update: I know a lot of people find me through this article, so it can be a little confusing to people who are new to my site, as I don’t go through my entire background story every time I write a blog post. If you want to understand more about the Love Symbol and how it relates to the timing of my birth as this twins soul, see this post. On this blog, you’ll find plenty of posts where I share my experiences of Prince in spirit, just look under the Prince category heading on the sidebar. Also be sure to check out the video of a psychic reading I had where I “met” Prince for the first time.
