Adam Invites Bob Marley for his Birthday!
I’m excited to share that Adam invited Bob Marley to join us for our session with Emma McIntosh on March 30th, Adam’s 34th Earth Day birthday. Bob is one of Adam’s favorite VIPs on The Other Side. In a visit with Adam earlier this month, he shared that he and his friend, Erik enjoy spending time with Bob. Next week, I’ll share an excerpt where Adam explains what happens when Spirits meet and how he and Erik manifest Other Worldly Hangouts.
I’m not surprised Adam invited Bob to hang out with us on his birthday. Bob was one of Adam’s musical heroes when Adam was still here on Earth. The following photo of Bob hung just inside the door of Adam’s apartment:
I thought I’d share an excerpt featuring Bob Marley from four months after Adam’s transition:
By May of 2011, I was no longer in good shape emotionally. I was feeling scatterbrained and gaining weight by the lungful, I would have sworn there were calories in air. I was in need of some help for myself. I found a women’s retreat in Mt. Shasta that focused on processing emotional trauma through the use of circular breath-work. It was to begin on Sunday of the weekend of the annual Wesak Festival, a celebration of the birth, enlightenment, and death of the Buddha.
My husband, Greg, a forger of new frontiers by nature, is always up for a road trip. I invited him to join me for the weekend. We’d attend the Wesak Festival together, he’d return home, and I would stay for my retreat. On Sunday evening of the weekend of the Wesak Festival, Greg delivered me to my retreat at Stewart Mineral Springs, where it is said the mineral waters flowing into the river are some the most powerful healing waters on mother earth. I introduced myself to Ashanna Solaris and Dana DeLong who would be my first spiritual teachers and said good-bye to Greg.
Ashanna and Dana use a method known as Clarity Breathwork, a powerful process of healing and transformation that clears away old energies, patterns, conditioning, and negative thoughts and emotions; and opens the doors for new life and greater consciousness. Breath-work opens energy channels in our bodies that allow us to release what no longer serves us.
I did my breath-work with Ashanna, who is also a Reiki Master and psychic.
On the first evening of the retreat, we met as a group and pulled cards from two oracle card decks. My cards said, “Spiritual Teacher” and “Healer.” (A harbinger of what was to come!)
Adam came in during my first breath-work session with Ashanna. She was able to channel him easily. The Breath-work was healing for its own sake. The fact that Adam continued to join us was a bonus. For the next several months I drove from my home in Stockton, California to continue my work with Ashanna at her studio in the Berkeley Hills.
During my sessions with Ashanna, Adam continued to pop in dressed in a wide variety of costumes from wizard to Indian chief. He would often change his appearance to make me laugh. During one especially difficult session, I experienced a huge grief wave and wasn’t able to stop crying.
Ashanna said, “Adam is saying, ‘Sponge Bob! Sponge Bob! Just think of Sponge Bob!’”
Even in the Spirit World, it’s distressing for our loved ones to feel us grieving their loss. Adam advised me to think of Sponge Bob, a cartoon character who lives in the fictional underwater city of Bikini Bottom because Sponge Bob always made Adam laugh.
It wasn’t possible for me to think of Sponge Bob without laughing, but not for the reason Adam intended. My sister, Rhonda, who also loves Sponge Bob, can’t say his name to save her life. It always comes out “Bunge Slob Squab Pants!” or “Bob Sponge Square Hair!” Rhonda and I collapsed into a fit of giggles whenever she tried to pronounce his name.
Sponge Bob failed to dry my tears. They just kept coming.
‘He’s singing,” Ashanna said, “Let me see if I can hear the words.”
She tilted her head and listened for a few seconds and then laughed. “He’s singing ‘I Shot the Sheriff’ by Eric Clapton. I wonder what that means.”
“Hmm. I don’t know, “ I said. “I’ll have to give that some thought.”
“How funny!” she said, “Adam just told me the song is by Bob Marley. I thought it was by Eric Clapton.”
“So did I,” I said and looked it up on my iPhone. The song was indeed written by Bob Marley.
The fact that Adam provided a piece of trivia neither Ashanna or I had known was a big deal for me. It confirmed that Adam has access to The Facts. If Adam knows “I Shot the Sheriff” was written by Bob Marley rather than Eric Clapton, what else does he know?”
A seed had been planted in my pea brain and I have been picking Adam’s brain ever since.

Adam and I welcome your questions for Bob on March 30th. Since I consider myself a spiritual sleuth of sorts and I never did figure out the meaning behind Adam’s singing “I Shot the Sheriff,” my first question for Bob is whether there is a special meaning behind that song.
Blog member, Laurie, noted that most of the photos of Bob Marley feature a marijuana leaf. She wants to know how Bob feels about that. Especially touching was Laurie’s request that we thank Bob for his ‘most beautiful song,’ ONE LOVE.
