My friend Kellee White called me up the other day. “James, you’re not going to believe this!” she said excitedly. “Look at the text I just sent you.”

I glanced at my phone and saw that Kellee had photographed a few passages from my first book, Talking to Heaven. Talking to Heaven topped the bestseller list in 1997, twenty-four years ago! While reading it, Kellee had stumbled across a part of the book that referenced the year 2021 – and here’s what it said:

“Before coming into an earthly incarnation, a soul prepares for its new life in the spiritual realms. It is common for a soul to return to a field of work in which it had previous lifetimes of interest or experience. Let’s say a soul plans to experience earth life in the year 2021 as a medical professional. It will spend time with its guides and teachers perfecting necessary skills and will look into medical breakthroughs and technology that will be available at that time. It may also become aware of new diseases and scourges that will affect humankind…

It will learn how to help spread knowledge and love to everyone through its potential work on earth. As a soul becomes aware of this knowledge it is integrated into a new personality. It is vital the soul understand the value of its participation in the future of humankind and how it will affect the lives of many others.”

Okay, isn’t it odd that there would be a reference to a new disease or scourge in 2021, written in a book published in 1997? I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, I was guided to write Talking to Heaven, and like all divine beings, my guides have a clear view of the past, present, and future.

That’s not the only time something like this has happened.

Many times, I’ve delivered a message that comes through crystal clear from Spirit, but the recipient doesn’t recognize the reference. When something is clear and accurate, I know it, and I’ll say to the person, “Write this down, because it might not have happened yet, but this Spirit definitely knows what is coming!” Sure enough, I’ll get a call or an email, sometimes years later, saying, “James, you were right!”

Spirit might see a baby coming, a new home, a move – but sometimes the message comes a little early. The recipient of the message is usually confused and sure there’s a mistake – but I remind them that time as we know it doesn’t exist on the other side. Time is an earthly concept. The spirit realm exists in an eternal space, which accounts for a lot of things we earthly beings have a hard time grasping.

Now that you know that, here are a couple of things to keep in mind.

  • A medium is getting their information from Spirit, who will try to give you a message that will make sense to you, and most of the time it does. But they might have a good reason for sharing something that will happen in the future, so have an open mind, and remember their words.
  • You might be confused when you get a message that family members from different generations are together in Heaven. Some might have never been born at all. I’ve had mothers who miscarried get messages from their babies, who were reunited with relatives from past generations. Remember, those souls are eternal, and share a soul connection that might go back centuries – or more.

When you’re getting a reading, or if you’ve got spiritual gifts and you’re getting a hunch or premonition, don’t discount or ignore it. It’s most likely “in the works” and will all make sense soon! Jot it down in your notebook or calendar. I bet there will be a time when you read those words and realize they came to pass.

And if you haven’t read Talking to Heaven, I hope you’ll pick up a copy at your local library or bookstore. It was my first book, and one I was compelled to write, because the message that death is an illusion and love never dies provides a whole new perspective that goes beyond our present lifetime.
