Transcript of the Recording
You know, when I was very shortly after I died, I was a little bewilder about everything and I wandered up the Champs-Élysées and I was bumping into people and they didn’t know. And I shout loud as I think. No one hear and I get very frustrated. And I sit at a café, and then a woman and a man come and sit down very near my table. And I look at them and I’m curious and they don’t seem to know I am there. They have some café and they . . . they lift the cups to their lips, you know, and I think “Oh I would like for myself to have some,” but it was not possible.
No one hear my voice. I speak. I think. No one take notice. And then I get very cross and I kicked the tables and then I goes to the tables where the man and woman’s sitting and I think now what can I do. I try. I shout. I kick the chair. I kick the man on his leg. He don’t take no notice I get very cross and I think “What is all this?” I know . . . you know like I’m dead. That is I tell I understand I am dead but I don’t know why these people don’t know I’m dead. I want them to know I’m alive though I’m dead, you know.
Oh I did many stupid things. I was up and down in what you call the elevator, and I got fed up with it . . . up and down, down and up, up and down. Peoples comes and stand right in front of me back of me and I breathe as I think on their neck and they don’t take no notice. So one woman says “Oh what a cold breeze strucks me,” and it was me.
But you know it is all have to do with vibration. We are live on a different vibration according to our individual selves.
