Bolan-Beaty Boogie’s Afterlife Interview with River Phoenix 

River Phoenix.jpg

I had seen a photo of River on FB a few days ago and I wondered what he might be up to now. I asked Marc to see if he could get him for an interview. The next time I met with him, River was standing next to him. I remember feeling so shocked when River passed away in 1993 at the age of 23. Another celebrity who left us too soon.

Marc: So Diane, I’d like you to meet River.

Diane: Oh gosh….hello River. Very nice to meet you.

Marc: River said that he’d like to join up for a conversation.

Diane: I’m curious River….how did you find out about what Marc and I are doing?

River: Well Marc was one of my influences growing up. (He showed me a scene where River and his siblings were playing air guitar to Marc’s music). I loved rock – not so much the earlier rock that Marc liked. Anyway, many celebrities are being interviewed right now and I felt this would be a perfect fit for me.

Marc: So let’s settle down here. (They sit down in the lotus position.) River, so what have you been doing since you passed over and how was the transition for you?

River: Well, it was a bumpy end as I’m sure you are all aware. I just couldn’t kick the drugs. I had every advantage in my life at the time – money, fame and a family who cared about me. I just kept looking for something else that I couldn’t find down there. Drugs and alcohol filled the void that I had in me. The transition over was an eye opener. I thought I’d really botched that one. I could have had so much but couldn’t get it right. Once I transitioned over, after speaking with my team here, I knew that one of the humps I was trying to overcome that time was addiction. But yeah….didn’t quite get there.

Marc: What did you learn from that life?

River: Not to be hard on yourself. I learned so much in other aspects of that life as well.

Diane: It seems that many spirits who were celebrities end up going over early. Marc and River….both of you went very young. River, did you plan that?

River: Didn’t Marc say something once about wanting to be a pretty corpse? Yeah, I think I had a few exit points and that was one of my first ones and the one I took. Maybe there is something in leaving before they forget you. Marc’s a legend. I don’t think I am – but maybe to some.

Marc: Did he answer me? What lesson did you learn?

River: Yeah I did didn’t I? Not to judge yourself harshly. Everything works out in the end.

Marc: Oh yeah..sorry….I guess I was wondering what you came down there to do if that isn’t too personal?

River: Well at this point, I don’t think so. I came down to be an artist and to make a difference. I’d been painters before, authors. I had everyday run of the mill lives before but that time, I really wanted to shake it up. I was extremely intelligent – if I do say so myself – a real deep thinker. I could read minds and understand people and things on a deeper level than most people around me it seemed. I had just brought down too much energy that time because it seemed like I couldn’t control it. My guides warned me not to bring so much down, but I thought I could handle it. Turns out they were right.

Diane: River, did you enjoy that short life?

River: At times. I had the greatest friends – so many wonderful people. Unfortunately, we all had some vices and egged each other on too much – train ride out of control.

Marc: You loved music right man?

River: Oh yeah! I would rather had been a rock star versus a film star but you take what you get. Music was a big passion for me. I loved playing the guitar. I loved all the crazy outfits you wore Marc. You were a hell of a guitar player.

Marc: Thanks very much. What have you been doing since you’ve gotten back?

River: Well that life was a hard one even though it was short and I took some time to recover – healing time. I wasn’t really pleased with myself because I felt that I kind of blew it, but that is all behind me.

Diane: Are you thinking of coming back down here at some point or are you already here?

River: Not the spirit components that were River. I do have a parallel life that did not stop at that time. It is still continuing but to tell you the truth, it’s kind of boring.

Diane: Do you visit family and friends?

River: Oh sure… brother especially. It wasn’t easy for my siblings coming after their big brother and my loss so early was hard on my family. God….he is a heck of an actor. He really came into his own. Yeah I’m around him a lot. Trying to keep him on the straight and narrow so to speak.

Marc: Okay River…I think Diane is getting tired here. Thank you for taking the time to talk with us. Man…keep it real. Rock on!

River: Thanks Marc…thanks Diane. It was a trip coming here. I haven’t done this kind of thing in awhile. I hope readers get something out of it.

Diane: Thanks River! I’m sure that they will. Did you have any last words for them?

River: Yeah…take care of those demons down there the best you can folks. Otherwise they’ll keep coming back. Hell…it’s all a learning experience so don’t sweat the bad stuff. It all works out in the end. And yeah…enjoy yourself down there – maybe not to the excess that I did sometimes. Look within man….the journey comes from there.

And he seems to still do many fans have never forgot him.its my birthday day soon and finding this interview was a great treat. It’s good to know part of river is still out there.

  2. Thank you for getting Marc to get in touch with River. River is one of my idols that I look up to. Anyway, is it at all possible for Marc to get in touch with Kurt Cobain. He is another idol of mine. I was 8 when both River and Kurt passed.

    • There have been quite a few afterlife interviews with Kurt already. You might check the Channeling Erik site as I know they did one. We are trying to contact spirits who maybe haven’t been heard from too often. We never say no to a spirit who wants to be heard, so you never know, he may still show up here! 😀

  3. hi. i loved this interview; has anyone tried to get in contact, spiritually that is, with Brad Renfro or Jonathan Brandis?

    • Glad you enjoyed it Sarah! Actually I’ve never of them so not sure about afterlife interviews with them but you can check on-line. We can put the word out to Spirit and see if they want to talk.
