“ABLE WAS I ERE I SAW ELBA”
NAPOLEON STANLEY KUBRICK
Another day, another trip to the fieldhouse on the flipside. In this session, I decided to see if I could call upon a historical person, someone I knew that I had no possible connection to. The questions I asked him were related to questions posed to me by an Oscar award winning screenwriter. My questions are in italics, Jennifer Shaffer’s replies are in bold.
Rich: I talked to somebody yesterday who we interviewed in your office. My old boss, the screenwriter Robert Towne; friend of Luana’s.
Jennifer: He came to mind.
I told him what we were doing and I said if you could talk to anyone on the flipside who would you like to talk to?
His dad just came through but I know that’s not who he wanted to talk to.
I told him “You can talk to anybody.” I’ll tell you this, it’s a historical figure.
The first person that showed up was Abraham Lincoln, but I don’t think it was him.
Well perhaps Abraham can help us. Luana knows who this is, because it was who I was talking to.
Was he a soldier during the Civil War?
He was a soldier but not during our Civil War. I’ll tell you that he wasn’t from this country.
No, longer ago. If I give you a hint, you’ll get it. 200 years ago my dear. I have to think about this — we normally have someone in our class who knows someone who knows someone. Luana has to ask her friend.
(Jennifer aside) When was Napoleon?
That’s it. (Ding!) He was around 1820.
Napoleon! How many tries did that take?
It doesn’t matter. (For those keeping score, it was five.)
It’s frustrating. Finally they showed me Napoleon.
Who showed you Napoleon?
Can we talk to him directly?
Um… He’s a little bit of a shit. Give me a second. Yeah, I guess we can. Mmm-hmm.
What do you see in your minds’ eye?
He’s actually kind of handsome.
Can you see his face?
I see his lashes — he’s actually quite handsome.
Can you touch his hand?
There’s something on his hand, felt like there’s a wound on his hand.
Let’s ask him — how did you get this wound my friend?
It feels like psoriasis — everything was cracking.
Look around the class; is this unusual for you to be here?
He says, “Yes it is.” He says he was here like 3 times before.
So you recognize a few people in this group?
He said, “Yes.”
So you guys in our class that know him, can you help?
(Jennifer aside) They are.
Mr. Napoleon — I apologize for having to take time out of your day, but I have some questions for you.
I keep getting … based upon the paintings I’ve seen of him — he had lighter eyes.
Let’s ask him — what color are your eyes?
(Note: He had fine white teeth, which he was proud. His nose was slightly curved, with a “sharp and delicate modelling, [but] was less prominent than one is inclined to suppose from the evidence of his portraits.” His eyes, deep-set, were reportedly gray or gray-blue.” Wikipedia.)
They’re dark on the outer iris and blue inside.
Who was there to greet you when crossed over?
He says, “His mother.” He showed me there were 2 days he was going in and out of consciousness.
What were you ill from?
I want to say it was something around here (gestures) in the stomach.
Was that natural issue, or was that something given to you that you died from?
I felt like it was… transmitted. I also got an image of the plague. I don’t know what that means.
Who transmitted that into your body?
Felt like it was in the water.
So let’s talk about that — did someone administer that stuff in the water, or was it natural from the place you were?
“It was not natural,” he says.
So somebody put it in your water or food?
He says, “Yes; felt like a drink.”
Tell Jennifer what it was.
He says, “It was poison.”
Someone in class, can you put it in her mind what kind of poison that was and who administered it?
“Someone very close to him — first I got a female, then I got someone who was trying to overrule him. Felt like somebody he trusted, like a captain or something.”
Yes, but maybe it was the nurse that administered it.
I’m going to ask you about a woman who was there when you died.
He’s telling me Serafina. Sounds like Serafina.
I’d like to ask you about Betsy Balcombe.
She was a child. It felt like there were three kids. It felt like there were three kids associated with Betsy. She was like 9 when she met him.
That’s about right.
(Note: This was a question that Robert Towne the screenwriter asked me. He said “If you talk to Napoleon, ask him about Betsy Balcombe. I’m asking this question on my old boss’ behalf. From the historical record, Betsy was 12. She lived on St. Helena with her two siblings and befriended Napoleon at age 12.)
(Jennifer aside) She could actually “see” — she was clairvoyant.
What makes you say that?
I saw information coming from the heavens (waves her hand)
Napoleon, was Betsy giving you messages from the flipside? Or were you friends?
“Yes,” he’s saying he protected her. He was like a mom to a child, brother and sister, he protected her.
It’s reported your last words were you reporting for duty.
Yes. He saw his horse.
(Note: Reportedly, Napoleon’s last words were, “France. L’armée. Tête d’armée. Joséphine (“France, the army, head of the army, Joséphine”). I noted in “Flipside” that it sounds like he’s reporting for duty, and then sees the love of his life.)
There was a woman you had a long relationship with.
16… like 16 years…
(Note: Napoleon married Josephine, the widow of a man killed during the reign of terror, they were together as lovers and then married for 16 years. She died in 1814, he died 7 years later in 1821.)
They said you called out her name. Her name was Josephine.
Sara Josephine — which is my sister’s name — Serafina. That’s why I was hearing Serafina.
Let’s talk about your journey — have you incarnated since?
No. I saw a picture of (current President) and started freaking out, then a picture of Hitler.
I suspect you are talking about these individuals in terms of the negative energy they represent. Were you part of that energy?
He said, “Yes.”
What was up with you and Russia? Is that the Trump connection?
He says, “Yes.”
Millions died while you tried to conquer Russia, what were you doing?
He said, “I was trying to take over the world.”
What could you possibly gain?
He says “In his demented mind he thought it would bring more peace under one rule.” He made a poof sound.
(Note: A very French sound to make. The Italians say “Boh” and the French say “Beouf.” Means “what can I say?”)
That’s very French. He did have a lot of ego, is he still carrying that around?
He says “No more than Prince.”
(Note: Hilarious comment. Prince shows up often in our sessions. Always very helpful.)
Touche’ — okay, what actor might represent you on the planet?
(Note: Would have been great if he said Joaquin Phoenix, but I think he’s closer to accuracy here in terms of height and demeanor.)
Were you Etruscan? Like Danny DeVito, they were notoriously short.
He says, “They were well bred. No; it was like his father’s father that was short. Somebody ruined the gene pool,” he said. Why is Joe Pesci showing up? He’s showing me he had Joe Pesci’s attitude as depicted in movies; killing people. Now he’s showing me a screenwriter, how they try to take over the world with movies. He says “I had a lot of blood (that was) shed, more people died. It’s easier to make movies where people die and they don’t bleed.”
I’m aware a couple of filmmakers have tried to make a film about you.
He knows that. Who was the guy that was in the “Ten Commandments?”
Cecil B Demille?
He said, “He’s over here.”
Have we talked to Stanley Kubrick yet?
I don’t know who that is. We’re not done with Napoleon!
It’s okay, is Stanley around?
Yeah, he is. He says “He’s a step ahead of you.”
Stanley; this is Napoleon. You wrote a long movie about this fellow.
(Jennifer aside) I asked him “Did you get the story right?” and he said “No… the ending was wrong. That’s why there were blocks about getting it made.”
The ending was wrong? You mean the truth about Napoleon being poisoned?
“Yes. They always wanted it to be an enemy but it was his best friend.”
Okay, I think I know who that is — the guy who invited him to St. Helena.
He said, “Yes.”
Here you are talking to Stanley who wanted to make a movie about you — and Luana’s friend Jack wanted to make a film about you…
(Ding!) That is correct. And yet Jack appeared in another one of Stanley’s films.
(Jennifer aside” Was that the “redrum” movie?
He just showed me Jack’s head. “The Shining.”
Who was there to greet you when you crossed over Stanley?
When did he pass?
Like ten years ago. After the Tom Cruise movie came out.
“Eyes Wide Shut” Stanley?
Yes, Clockwork Orange, The Shining… Who was there to greet you when you crossed over?
He’s showing me his dog. Kind of grayish… first I saw something blond…
It’s bigger… really big. I’m not sure of the name — I don’t know breeds.
(Note: This is accurate in terms of Stanley’s affection for his dogs. According to a recent documentary, he moved to a larger home specifically to make room for his dogs and left detailed instructions about each one and how they should be fed. “At home, children and animals would frequently come in and out of the room as he worked on a script or met with an actor. Kubrick’s many dogs and cats, toward which he showed an extraordinary affection, were often brought onto film sets or editing rooms.” Wikipedia)
What do you miss about being on the planet?
“The smells, the tastes, the frequency — I have to tell you more about that too.”
You were famous for not flying… was that OCD?
He showed me having panic attacks, but now he knows it was a past life thing. Now he does.
You were famous for calling people up and talking on the phone for hours and hours.
He’s showing me how his mind works.
Who do you wish you could talk to?
Everyone’s laughing because he said “Luana.”
He says, “Because it’s like you have to take a number to talk to her. You have to take a number.”
Who do you want me to reach out to?
He said, “Jack.”
And say what?
He said, “Stanley wants Jack to know that he’s okay.”
Well, Jennifer’s got to run. Napoleon thanks for coming in to see us…
He says “He’ll haunt you in your dreams.”
In honor of the film released recently, I’m reprinting this excerpt from the book “Backstage Pass to the Flipside” book three.

In honor of JFK:
I was in 3rd grade when the nuns in my grade school were weeping. They told us that JFK had been killed in Dallas.
I replied “but if he’s in heaven, isn’t that a good thing?” I was just following their logic — if he was a good person, then clearly he was back home in heaven. So… despite it being a sad day for those who missed him, for him, not so sad.
And here we are decades later with a podcast called HACKING THE AFTERLIFE.
JFK has shown up many times. I asked him all the questions I could think of — including if there was any documents that pointed to what happened. He replied that the book BROTHERS by David Talbot told the story accurately.
Since then RFK has shown up, as well as Nixon and LBJ. All of them said relatively the same things.
In honor of his passing, here are three podcasts we did where he showed up to add his two cents.
Each has a link, and each has a commentary about what he and other said during the podcast.

A promo for my latest book: THE GREATEST STORY NEVER TOLD AS TOLD BY JESUS AND THOSE WHO KNEW HIM.
(Don't tell Martin Scorsese as he's promised the Pope to write his own script about the alpha and omega and the details in this story might upset that narrative.) None of this would have happened if David Kirkpatrick hadn't suggested that I take the reports people were saying and put them in chronological order. Thanks to David who wrote the foreword to the book.
Here's the introduction to the AUDIBLE of the book (LINKED ABOVE) set with some photos for context.
This came to me in a dream. As fans of the podcast Hacking the Afterlife have heard in the past, sometimes things show up in dreams as ideas we should pursue. I had this notion that I should do some kind of "clip" about the book THE GREATEST STORY NEVER TOLD AS TOLD BY JESUS AND THOSE WHO KNEW HIM. I haven't done much publicity for the book - mainly because it's a controversial topic that people shy away from. Which is understandable. I shied away from it as well, until someone convinced me to put it out into the world. We'll see what people think of this "promo" and I may do them for all of my books, and perhaps add more chapters. Here's five minutes of the 18 minute introduction from the book THE GREATEST STORY NEVER TOLD AS TOLD BY JESUS AND THOSE WHO KNEW HIM. Enjoy.
