It's time for me to share

It's time to loosen the bow of purple satin ribbon wrapped around the box of precious memories I have carefully collected since the death of Prince Rogers Nelson, known worldwide as simply Prince.

Though I didn't know much about Prince or his music while he was alive, we have had an extraordinary relationship since he died.

Yes, it sounds crazy, but I am actually grounded and rational, most of the time. I am a psychologist with a Ph.D. who has been a therapist in private practice since 1981. And Prince and I have been having conversations for the past couple of years since he passed from his body.

I have kept my journals and notebooks filled with our telepathic communications; the photos and songs that have spontaneously presented themselves; words that have been spoken out loud through my computer; and the visual images that have mysteriously appeared on my iPad.

I have been as baffled and skeptical as anyone could be about what has transpired between us since his death on April 21, 2016. I have discussed my experiences with very few people. What would my clients think? This is just one of my many practical concerns.

Throughout these past years, I have deeply considered and questioned what I have experienced - and continue to experience - with Prince, and I have very, very slowly developed trust in our connection. L:ike a bottle of rich red wine that ferments over time, I too needed time to settle down from the confusion and excitement of him entering my life, to allow the truth of this connection to blossom and strengthen before going public with it.

So, here I am. It's time. I have boatloads of stories, and stories within stories, to tell.

I initially wrote everything down to develop into a book, but because I continue receiving messages from Prince, I decided I didn't want to wait any longer to being sharing this most wonderous experience. So, I am telling these stories in bite-sized, digestible pieces.

Putting myself out here like this feels like a big risk. But I must speak up about it. Soon after the "visitations" started, I had an inkling that I had agreed to this. I have heard over and over in my head, "Patricia, I didn't come to you for no good reason." And I know it's time for me to express all that I came here to experience. And who could be a better role model for putting themselves out there than flamboyant, uninhibited Prince?!

Beneath all the doubts there has always been a sense of knowing - that I have it in me to do this - to go out into the world and tell everyone about this magical connection I have with the soul formerly known as Prince.

When the voices in my head ask, "Why in the world would Prince come to you?", I remind myself to move from my wariness of the truth into steadfast belief in the truth. I have learned the hard way that letting doubt take over is like ripping an electrical cord from the wall, disconnecting us from each other.

Except for a few trusted friends and spiritual teachers, I have kept this to myself, and certain special personal keepsakes will always stay with me. But the rest is meant to be revealed, and I am bursting to share. So, here goes.....
