ABOUT THE BOOK
If you had unlimited access to the greatest artists and creative visionaries of the 20th century, what would you ask them? And how would your life change because of it?
As a natural-born psychic medium, healer, and trance channel Gia Prism is no stranger to meeting disembodied spirits from the other side. But it was still quite a shock when, in the spring of 2019, David Bowie came thundering into her life from beyond the veil.
“If you’re not living your life as a work of art,” he told her, his presence filling the room like lightning shattering the dark, “then why are you even living? And what are you living for?”
Thus began a profound and utterly life-changing mentorship with the spirit of David Bowie … but he didn’t come alone. Since then, he’s brought dozens of his friends and fellow artists to share their wisdom, love, regret, and tales of artistic glory from the Great Beyond.
In “Messages from the Stars: How the 20th Century’s Greatest Artists and Visionaries Lived Their Lives, and What They Have to Teach Us From Beyond the Veil,” memoir meets anthology in this collection of 25 spirit interviews and channeled messages from a powerhouse assemblage of artists including Frida Kahlo, Miles Davis, Freddie Mercury, Carrie Fisher, and Jimi Hendrix.
Exploring themes of living your life as art, getting lost in the passion of experimentation, and making harmony out of chaos, these luminaries reveal the keys to their genius and teach us how to step into our own greatness and create a better world through art. The result is an electrifying call to creative arms with the potential to revolutionize the way we see ourselves and our place in the cosmos, obliterating New Age tropes and pushing to extinction the old spiritual paradigms that keep us separated from spirits on the other side — yes, even the famous ones — who want nothing more than to take us by the hand and awaken the visionary within.

"Using your fear is what allows you to transport yourself into another way of being. Using this fear as part of your creative process is what is going to allow you to catapult yourself past it."
“I’ve blundered my way through art and creation for decades, and yet I’m only remembered as a master, a genius. Where do you think that mastery and genius came from? Spectacular, masterful failures."
- DAVID BOWIE
"I'm not here to talk about the fairies and the angels or any of it. I talk about life. I say things people don't want to hear. It's just the way it is."

When you open this book, you open a portal to a whole new world — one in which the brightest 'stars' in the universe are shining directly at you.

"Wow. What just happened? I feel like I lived my life through these pages. Although I was curious to hear what these 'stars' had to say, I had no idea how much I would be transformed by this book. I saw myself in Gia through her very personal, vulnerable writing, but more importantly, I experienced my soul in an entirely different way through these messages. They touched my soul so deeply, like I was being healed and loved back to life. This book is a blessing for anyone who wants to be transformed."
"This book will absolutely change your life! The messages shared from these brilliant stars are as relevant today as their lives on earth were and still are. Through this book they reach out to us so personally, so lovingly, I could swear they were in the room next to me sharing their words and wisdom directly. I could feel their energy lighting my soul, and I have been forever changed by this book. What an incredible gift."
