Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Colorado June 2012
The vibrational aspects of Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado is astounding. So many have been blessed by “The Rocks” as they are called; launching a new CD, playing their first big concert, connecting to their fans in an open air venue so close to God that many say they can actually feel Heaven here. Some of the most famous recordings of bands like U2, Yanni, Pearl Jam, The Beatles have occurred on this sacred ground. Jimi Hendrix once told me that this was his favorite place to play outside of New York’s, Gramercy Park.
Although I had known Barry Fey prior, when I spent the day with him at Red Rocks in June 2012, it was the first time I actually felt I met Barry’s soul. He asked me to channel musicians like Ronnie Van Ant of Lynard Skynard, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Michael Jackson, along with Bill Graham, Richard Pryor and Tupac Shakar for a magazine piece we did together. He drove with me because we were in a convertible and took the road untraveled down Hampton past some of his old stopping grounds. We laughed, let the wind blow through our hair, and for the first and perhaps only time on Earth through the two years I knew Barry, I saw him relax.
On April 28th, 2013 my friend, Barry Fey transitioned through life. His family and friends grieved, celebrating his life, multiple times the next few weeks as he had a big one. A foundation was started in his name, “The Barry Fey Foundation” which supports local music programs and venues. Check it out on FACEBOOK. My thoughts and prayer remain with his boys, Lisa and all his extended family around the world.
Yet as all the hustle and bustle quickly fades after someone transitions to the” Other Side”, most ask what now. Barry’s exact words were “NOW WHAT THE F… AM I GOING TO DO MICHELLE?” My answer was “BE”. Barry’s long time friend Dan Fong said, “do what you do best Barry and start a concert tour with all those people up there”. Barry’s response back to both suggestions was an astounding, “OK”. In the days after his self-induced transition, I found myself waiting for him to be grumpy, demanding and tell me his “To Contact” list. What I heard, felt and saw was a Being that accepted his fate, what he termed his “calling” and agreed to come back to “SELF” where trust exists.
About 8.5 days post his crossing To The Light, I got the message that Barry wanted to talk with me from Creator. This is what I request now to stop the bombardment of Souls speaking with me at Will. Honestly at this point I had spent the last week with Barry so I said Ok but thought his would be a short conversation. Boy was I wrong. The presence I felt was nothing like the Barry I have ever known. It was Barry, but there was this immense Peace to his Soul that I stood there shocked and triple checked with Creator and every High Spiritual Being I know.
Mick Jagger in his English accent used to call him “BARRRY”, and suddenly I understood why. “What did you do, what happened BARRRY?” was about all I could say to him. It was the conversation of a lifetime for me. One that so showed me the evolvement of the Soul. Even one I found terribly tormented. Just when you think someone is who they are, KABOOM, they change. We went on to talk about his acceptance of self and the acknowledgement of all the great things he had accomplished on the Earth. He had “Reconciled” with many as many do who transition. Finally he had found the answer he had looked for all his whole life...”Why Me?”
Transitions are the mark of the Human Soul’s Journey. Many reveal the happy times of their lives, yet rarely show the sorrow and sadness that Barry allowed the world to see. The seasons of Mother Earth change and ALL accept that the planet Earth is in balance; rebalancing herself through storms, sunshine and continents disconnecting. Can one person’s reawakening reestablish everyone in society?
This is my experience of life. We see, hear and feel but a pittance of the development our Eternal Spirit will endure. Forgiveness was my final discussion with Barry before he crossed to The Light Sunday night. What if the endurance of The Soul is the ability to forgive oneself of the most heinous crime of all; forgetting we are LOVE and LOVED by ALL?
Goodbye and HELLO BARRY FEY.
I LOVE the new and improved model that looks and feels different, but uniquely the same…insightful…top down… with “Freebird” playing on the radio
“Many will doubt, and all will follow Their Journey to The Light…”
