Your Post Apocalyptic Guide to Ziggy Stardust

CONTRARY to the recent Internet meme, Alan Rickman isn’t the only one who’s going to a very exclusive Bowie concert. It just so happens we’re all invited. In fact, David Bowie just sang me a verse of “Rubber Duckie” A Cappella and it was freakin’ epic.

“Great artists know where to steal,” he added, with a wink and a grin.
           
Living in a world in which David Bowie no longer exists might seem like the Eighth Sign of the Apocalypse, but he’s here to assure us that his passing is not the end of times. It’s the beginning of our own innate magic.

Easy for me to say; I’m a professional psychic medium. As such, I pinky swear that you can connect with him, too. All it takes is a little understanding of the process.

The most common fear among my clients is that they’re unable to connect with their late loved ones because they can’t see or hear them anymore. The good news is that sight and sound are irrelevant.

You can think them into being.

Newton’s Third Law states that for every action there’s an equal and opposite reaction. Therefore, when you think about your loved ones, your loved ones think about you. The same is true for Bowie.

But how is this possible if you didn’t even know him?

Science has taught us that energy is neither created nor destroyed. It also proves that light and sound are infinite energies that continue on, even when we can no longer see or hear them.

he same is true of us.

Just like light and sound, we each have our own unique frequency—the eternal radio station that is our soul. Bowie’s is one of the most inspirational and vibrant in modern history. In life he connected with us directly, via the frequency of his art and music. Why would that change just because he’s left the planet?

To paraphrase an online tweet that epitomizes our collective grief, we don’t cry because we knew him. We cry because he helped us know ourselves.

Now it’s up to us to know ourselves even better.

“We’re all here on loan from the Narnia collection,” I just heard him say. “How do you intend to bide your time?”

Bowie’s passing is a reminder that there are people who make this world a better place simply because we know they’re in it. I, for one, am doing my best to share that kind of love and comfort with everyone I meet.

“Great Artists know where to steal,” he reiterates, before bidding a temporary adieu. “Always remember, you must be the magic you wish to see in the world.”
