Welcome to the New Year of 2022! Here Jennifer and I are picking up from where we left off last year - after both of us coming down with Covid, and me trying not to cough my way through the show. Apologies for the cough drop walla, just unavoidable.
In this podcast we asked who wanted to come forward, and I was surprised to see George Harrison step in - as in the past he was a reluctant speaker. Mostly opted for witty sarcasm - but as this podcast and our interviews have been going on weekly for seven years, people on the flipside have gotten used to the idea of "showing up" when they have something to say.
In this case, he wanted to talking about "creating a new algorithm" for a person's life. That is - to focus on the positive, to focus on intent and creating love within your work, your day, and that in turn will affect one on their journey. Sage advice.
Betty White showed up - not to be interviewed - we don't always get interviews with people who've just crossed over, as they're busy acclimating to the new environment. She opted to just "observe" and I slipped in one question about who greeted her on the flipside.
It was widely reported that her last word was "Allen" and before I could ask the question, Jennifer answered it on Betty's behalf. All I can say is that in 7 years of doing this with Jennifer, it's not that she's reading my mind, it's that folks on the flipside already know what we're going to ask.
That has been consistent.
Then I had a question for Charles Grodin about his work with prisons and helping get non violent prisoners out of prison - and ending the "felony murder rule" something he was passionate about in life. He confirmed that he had shown up while we were watching the latest Spiderman with the theme that "your work doesn't die with you." It continues on - not only in the lives of those you have influenced, but also from the flipside.
It's a profound message in a film - but it's in the movie, and as noted in the podcast I didn't experience feeling his presence, but three of my family members did simultaneously. It's not like there was some direct or obvious reference to him - but all three said after the film "The weirdest thing happened while watching the film, it's as if Chuck was there." Chuck was their godfather, so it's not beyond the ability of someone to argue he's always keeping an eye on them - but my wife and children all felt him in the room.
Finally, Jennifer's dad Jim stops by to chat about the process - he's always got some great insight into the flipside, and is fun to chat with. Luana also had a few things to say about process and keeping our loved ones alive in our hearts because they want to continue to help and assist us from the flipside.
Hope this helps someone. Happy New Year.
