My beliefs about death and spirits were certainly challenged when the spirit of Prince showed up. I had always taken an interested in the paranormal, but I had yet to experience any of it. It took me by surprise when I realized that Prince was talking to me from the great beyond. I never imagined hat such a thing would happen to me. I never summoned him to attempt contact. He just showed up. I never really considered the afterlife too seriously. I never had anyone really close to me pass away. I once attended a taping of a show for a medium where she did cold readings. But never was I to imagine that I would experience it first hand in my life.

One of the biggest realizations I’ve had about those on the other side of the veil is that they leave this world as they were, meaning whatever they became in this world is who they remain to be. Prince’s personality is perfectly intact. Still funny, and witty, protective and reserved, romantic and affectionate. However, what was most surprising to me, is that they sill carry the emotional baggage from their lives. There seems to be a kind of assumption that all is forgiven and forgotten when one reaches the other side. This is just not true (although, their perspective  could change if they receive new information about a situation). I often find myself waking up in the middle of the night, with the realization that Prince was talking to me in my sleep, that we were carrying on a conversation, and that the conversation carried over into my waking life. The conversation will usually be about something he is not happy with. Issues that did not get resolved in life will carry on over to the other side. If you listen tot the interview (or read the book) about  George Reeves and his twin soul, it was mentioned that George requested to have therapy to resolve some issues.

Another presumption that people make about spirits is that they are all-knowing, and this is simply not the case. While they do have access to more information than we do, their  knowledge is still limited. They themselves, are still learning or recovering memories. I would say that Prince is still learning new information through me as well. They can see slightly into the future, but that also has its limitations. This is why channeled information cannot be taken as the final word on everything.  While channeled information has its value, it is still merely a perspective, a point of view from what information they gather.

Th last thing I want to point out is that everything on the other side is all about energy. Everything can be sensed, as there are no boundaries between consciousness. This is why I have said in the past that Prince does not want people to be sad about his death. It is because he can feel the sadness. There are other feelings from the general public that he can sense, and so this is why I ask people to be respectful towards him. Just because someone has passed away does not make it a free-for-all for anyone to speak badly about them or expose their private life.

Although the material body dies, consciousness lives on forever.
