John Paul speaks emotionally of the "living stream of love" present at his funeral

Last Friday, April 8th, at about 7:15 p.m. Italian time (one hour earlier where I am in the Canaries), I had John Paul with me in the room where I was working. I didn’t see him or notice him come in, just had this force field surrounding me, and it was unmistakably him.
I’ve no idea why it should have been me that he visited. However, he was in a highly emotional state, and just needed someone to open his heart to. He said that as he looked around, the room was accessible to him, and I was receptive.
It was rather intimate, but then that’s how blogs are meant to be, that’s why I’m writing about it here.
His speech was rich, sensitive and beautiful, a bit like the Psalms.
He said he’d dropped the “Pope” when he “took off his earthly mantle”, but that he continued to be known as “John Paul” because he liked that name.
I sensed tears streaming down his face. He was showing me a river. He said that he’d just been at his funeral, and he’d felt the full force of love coming from everyone. He was just overwhelmed to be loved so much as he witnessed the streams of people --- like a living stream of love. He’d never realised while in body, the full extent of people’s love for him.
Since his passing a number of Iraqis, who’d passed on before him, had come up to him to say “thank you”. They told him that the work he’d done on earth to bring peace to their war-torn country, had made a big difference, far more than he’d realised.
In recent times he’d been pulled like in a tug-of-war. His body was ready to go back into the earth where it came from, and was going along that path. But this was counterbalanced by a powerful wave of prayer from all over the world, for his recovery. So he was in a state of suspended animation for a time, as these two forces played themselves out.
This turned out to be providential. He’d originally wanted to go at Easter, but at the same time, he didn’t want to divert people’s focus from Jesus’ Resurrection on Easter Sunday. So in the end his passing was delayed until just after the festival.
He’d be attending Charles and Camilla’s wedding to give them his blessing (not ex-officio, just personal), but he added with a smile, that they wouldn’t see him!
Throughout his service as Pope he’d been “straitjacketed by dogma”. Now that he’d “taken off the mantle” he was “steering clear of dogma” (giving a sigh of relief). He was about to “spread his wings” and do what he really longed to do. He’d be like a “simple country priest” (showing me the Italian countryside) baptising people in the “living waters of compassion” (showing me a big river like the Danube).
I got the impression that he’d be doing this on the other side --- he seemed eager to start --- and was not planning to come back to earth soon.
And then he was gone. Obviously eager to get stuck in. What a lovely, pure, noble soul.
