The purple carpet and more signs
When Prince started working with the channel Lisa Wechtenhiser after he died in 2016 and when Lisa started to offer her first readings and group sessions with him, I turned inside and asked whether it would be good for me to participate. And shortly afterwards, I got a sign. A dark purple doormat draped over a bike rack in the middle of our town. A very unusual sight. I thought that this was probably from him.
But then I listened to some Prince channelings by Lisa and found that I did not resonate with everything he said. And also, Lisa said that Prince could be bossy at times (in her experience). I had enough of bossy guides after the dismissal of my negative spirit guide in July 2017. And I thought it would be too risky to connect with Prince and then have a new bossy guide on my team.
So, I made sure that I stayed away from any activities Lisa offered with Prince, like Facebook groups, group sessions, and individual readings even if they were offered at an affordable price or for free.
But I kept getting signs which I thought were from Prince. I was never really sure, but they were so insistent. As if he was trying to contact me and to convince me to get in touch.
I remember during my family’s summer vacation at the sea in 2017, I heard an inner voice saying, ‘Do you want to be a rock star?’ As usual, I wondered whether I heard correctly or whether I made this up. But then I saw a little girl on the beach with a t-shirt with ‘Rockstar Girl’ written on it. So, that was like a confirmation that I was not making this inner voice up. And I thought it was probably from Prince because who else would ask me whether I would want to be a rock star other than a former rock star? But I answered in my mind, ‘No, Prince, I don’t want to be a rock star.’ And I thought that was enough to keep him away.
Then I saw another t-shirt saying, ‘Music is my medicine.’ That also sounded like it could be a message from a musician. But I thought that it was going to take something different than music to heal the rheumatic pain in my foot from which I was suffering at that time.
The signs kept coming and so I said, “Ok, Prince, what do you want to tell me?”
This time, I did not get an inner voice, but I got the vision of a frog. I kept wondering for many years what that meant. Kiss that frog? Or was it about transformation? I had no idea.
A channeling from Prince
In April 2020, when Lisa announced an offer of channeling Prince in a session, I was nudged by my guides to participate. When I procrastinated signing up, things started to break down in the house again. So, I thought, ok, I have no choice. I must sign up. But I was very afraid of doing that. Much to my relief, Prince was very kind in the channeling and not bossy.
In the reading, Prince told me among other things that the frog image meant “Wisdom lives within you”. He also confirmed that the other signs were from him, too.
I wondered why he kept trying to reach me if I had sent so many signs that I did not want to connect with him.
In the channeling, he said that my soul had asked for his support.
That was strange. I mean, shouldn’t I feel more eager to talk with him if it was the wish of my soul?
An insistent inner voice – and another sign
In the channeling class in spring 2021, he also showed up in signs and as an inner voice. During the night before one of the partner practice sessions, I heard an inner voice telling me very insistently that I needed to deliver a message from them (whoever that was). And I should make sure not to block it. They said they would come through very strongly. The feeling of this inner voice was very insistent, high pressure, and urgent.
They also told me that they would send me a small gift afterwards as a sort of sign that I did not make this up and as a ‘thank you’ that I delivered the message. As I lay awake in bed listening, the voice made me repeat the words just to be sure I had understood the message. So, I repeated it and then asked to be released so I could get some more sleep.
The next day, I went into the partner zoom call and kept wondering whether I would be able to hear an inner voice just like during the night before. But I didn’t. I usually don’t get an inner voice during zoom calls because I am not as relaxed as in my bed at night. But I felt an urge to say something about certain topics.
After the session, I wondered whether I had kept my promise of bringing the message through. All I got was a visual of ‘thumbs up’ by shadowy figures. So, I probably did it correctly.
The next day, I went outside for a walk and kept looking for the gift which they promised. Was I making all of this up or was it real? Guess what I found in the street on my way home! It was a lost, silvery earring. And when I looked at it in a certain way, it looked like the letter ‘P’. Maybe a sign from Prince? I was wondering all the time from whom this very insistent inner voice was.
So, maybe I did say something in the partner zoom call which was from Prince even though I did not hear an inner voice. Finding this sign of the earring which looked like a ‘P’ was a very welcome confirmation for me.
When I told this story during our group zoom calls, one of the participants, who is a gifted Prince channel, heard Prince say, ‘Yes, that was me.’
I another partner zoom session, this talented Prince channel also told me that Prince would be there waiting for me until I was ready to work with him. After the channeling by Lisa W. from April 2020 described above, this was another confirmation.
I was still reluctant. But another group member assured me that he can be very gentle and supportive. So, he is not necessarily bossy to everyone. Good to know.
The purple phone
On July 31st, 2021, we had our last group zoom call from the channeling class. And Prince showed up in a channeling and let us know that he would be available for us to work with him if we needed him.
The next day, our more than 20 year old black phone in the living room suddenly stopped working. Luckily, we had two spare phones left over in our house with which we could replace it. A white one and a purple one. The strange thing was that the white phone also stopped working on that same day when I tried to use it. So eventually, we had only the purple phone left and put this into our living room as replacement. Because this was just one day after the last channeling class, I took that as a metaphor that I could always pick up the purple phone and call on Prince when I needed help.
I still think it is weird that my soul wants to work with Prince and yet I don’t feel an urge to go forward with this connection with him. Usually, when my soul wants something, I feel an inner urge, a sense of passion and of ‘I can’t wait to do this/ to learn about that/ to dig into it.’
But here, nothing.
I don’t know much of his music. And the few pieces I have listened to don’t match my taste. Sorry. Sure, he was very talented, played many instruments, was highly creative and productive and also courageous. I am sure I could learn something from him. I just don’t want to be bossed around for I’ve had enough of that treatment by guides in the past. And also, I am afraid of being pushed to go too far outside of my comfort zone. I know it will eventually be necessary, but after the channeling class, I need a break from being uncomfortable.
So, we’ll see. This is no complete surrender yet to a commitment of working with him. But writing this blogpost has been a step into the right direction.
