“The key to helping yourself cross over well is living a life that’s got some level of devotion – heartfelt, passionate devotion – that gives you both discipline and delight. Even if that devotion goes to caring for your Harley-Davidson or your stamp collection, if you live that devotion with a pure heart, you’ll be building the skills you’ll need to focus on the light and love that will carry you across the divide between heaven and Earth. “
Quote from my book, They Serve Bagels In Heaven: One Couple’s Story of Love, Eternity and the Cosmic Importance of Everyday Life.
Based on the quote above, I have no doubt that Prince’s transition to the Other Side was a smooth and easy one. The Soul Purpose is an expression of what we know in our hearts we MUST do, what we feel compelled to leave behind so that our time here actually mattered. Prince’s Soul Purpose was surely his music and its messages, which touched millions of people.
Throughout his life, Prince lived his Soul Purpose with heartfelt, passionate devotion.
And he seemed to truly believe in an afterlife. In his song “Let’s Go Crazy,” he sings:
But I’m here to tell you
There’s something else
The after world
A world of never ending happiness
You can always see the sun, day or night.
Prince was a deeply spiritual man who studied the Bible about life and love to keep himself grounded. He believed that studying often kept him protected from “all the nonsense.”
Even Prince’s choice of the color purple as his signature color was a spiritual choice. Purple, which is the color of the crown chakra, is associated with both earthly and spiritual power.
And Prince also had a Soul Mate. She was the Vanity 6 lead singer whose real name was Denise Matthews. Denise was one of Prince’s great loves, his former protégé and ex-girlfriend. Vanity died February 15 at the age of 57. Prince was 57 as well. They died 9 weeks apart. Coincidence? Maybe. But in the spiritual world, probably not.
Amongst other things, the Number 9 is the number of Universal love, eternity, destiny, soul purpose, generosity, romance, inner-strength, public relations, intuition, and strength of character.
It is said that the movie “Purple Rain” was about Vanity. Here is an excerpt from the Daily Mail UK when Prince heard Vanity had passed:
“Later, the Purple Rain star was remarkably candid about his memories of Denise, saying: ‘Her and I used to love each other deeply.’ He continued: ‘She loved me for the artist I was, I loved her for the artist she was trying to be.’
And in her 1997 book, Blame It On Vanity, Denise claimed that Prince was the only man she ever truly loved, Jet Magazine reported.”
We souls, with the help of our spiritual guides, elders and masters, plan our lives before we are born into them. Earth is considered school, heaven is home. It would not surprise me to find out that the Soul Mates Prince and Vanity planned to be together in this lifetime to experience what they needed to learn together, planned to separate at some point so that each could accomplish individual goals, and also planned to die around the same time, to be reunited in heaven, which is truly home for each of us.
