Psychic Prediction that Came True!
Article by Craig Hamilton-Parker. This is a selection of letters to my news column about psychic predictions that came true. Since ancient times people have believed that it is possible to predict the future. The Temple of Apollo in Delphi for example housed the most important oracle of ancient Greece, known as Pythia. Only the wealthy could afford the fees of the oracle and many questions of state were decided by what the Delphic oracle foretold.
In both Old and New Testaments of the Bible we read of people whose dreams foretold the future and would influence the decisions of kings or pharaohs. The Chinese emperors would base their decrees upon the auguries read in the I Ching oracle of change. And even today we see Ronald Regan, Hillary Clinton, Michael Gorbechev, and the British Royal Family consult seers, psychics and astrologers to help them plan their actions.
But is it really possible to see into time? You may have had a tantalising glimpse of the future yourself. Many ordinary people, who make no claim to having special powers, have written to me to say that they’ve seen the future. “I awoke from a bad dreamed at exactly 9.03. In the dream I saw my father collapse outside the hospital in Glasgow” says Pamela from Knightswood “Exactly two months later at 9.03 a.m. my father collapsed and died at the exact spot that I had dreamt about.”
Some people believe that seership is an inherited gift passed down through families and even racial groups. When a gypsy girl called at Mrs Hollings house in County Durham she was amazed to hear how much the gypsy knew about her and her family. “She knew that my husband had bad legs and went on to predict that my son was engaged to a girl with the initial M but would marry a girl with the initial S. Their firstborn would be twins.”
The gypsy’s prediction came true to the letter.
I believe everybody has psychic powers that lay dormant in the mind waiting to be triggered. Scientists call these powers Extra Sensory Perceptions (ESP) and subdivide them into telepathy (communicating by thought) clairvoyance (seeing events without using the 5 senses) psychokinesis (influencing matter by thought i.e. spoon bending) and precognition (seeing the future)
Scientist have studies these psychic powers since the 1930,s when Professor J. B. Rhine at Dukes University in America made a systematic study in the laboratory. He used as his evidence card guessing games and discovered that many students, who had been randomly selected from the university campus, could predict which cards would come next in a randomly shuffled pack of Zener cards. Their scores were far above what you’d expect from chance alone.
The research into ESP continues to this day. It seems ironic that experiments in precognition, that started in the ancient Greek Temple of Apollo, should be secretly carried out on its namesake the Apollo 14 space mission by astronaut Edgar D Mitchell in the 1960’s. Experiments in precognition have been going on for centuries. and it has been found that many people have this ESP gift. Are you one of them?
SOMETHING NOT HAPPENING
I have premonitions of the future but they are not about what’s going to happen they’re about what’s NOT going to happen. I have known emphatically that certain events will not take place. For example I ‘knew’ on the day Charles married Diana that they would never stay together. And it happens in my own life too. I remember being thrilled to bits at being asked to go to the theatre in Covent Garden but something in my bones said I wouldn’t go. I didn’t.
I call these reverse premonitions my “No No’s” Joan H
Well, I’m certainly not coming to see you for a private consultation Joan. But you knew that it wasn’t going to happen didn’t you?
PSYCHIC DREAM WITNESS
I had a terrible nightmare. I saw a woman being stabbed several times in a park by a stream A few days later I was horrified to learn that a woman neighbour had been stabbed to death in her own home. Her house adjoined a park and there was a stream nearby. Although this happened a few years ago, the murderer is still at large. – Douglas W
Officially the police deny using information from psychics in their search for criminals. However, I have helped to track a murderer by contacting the dead victim. If you feel that you may be able to offer a clue to the murderer’s identity, I’m sure they would like to hear from you.
DEAR DREAM PREDICTIONS DIARY
I awoke from a vivid dream and told it to my husband so that I could put it into my diary later. The dream was not pictorial; it was auditory. I had heard a name, NEVILLE, not that unusual, but I didn’t know anyone by that name. I had also dreamed of the poem ‘Upon Westminster Bridge’ by the poet William Wordsworth.
Three months later I joined a discussion group and was introduced to a NEVILLE WEST BRIDGE. We became good friends and his ideas had a very important influence on my philosophy of life. My husband has always been very sceptical about precognition but the accuracy of this dream has made him change his tune. – Mrs R D
Dreams are a rich source of psychic experience. The subconscious usually works with symbols, allegories and vivid images. The things said in dreams are the hardest to recall. If you keep a dream diary it is important to immediately write down what you hear in the dream before it fades. Then in, any order, write the visual material. Do this and you may unearth remarkable glimpses of future scenarios.
CRAIG & JANE ON THEIR WEEKLY PREDICTION BREAKFAST SHOW
Oh to be young again!
PREDICTED NEWS FROM HOME
I was working on an oil rig 80 miles out in the Arabian Gulf. Because we were working 12 hour shifts most of us went to bed early.
On a Thursday night at 7-35 p.m. I was awoken by a bad dream. I was floating about 100 feet in the air above a street near my home watching a car travelling along a dual carriageway. Without stopping it drove straight across a roundabout and hit another vehicle. I sensed rather than saw that the guilty driver was my father.
I told my friend about the dream.
A week later I was flown home. My father had had an accident in exactly the way my dream had revealed. He told me that as he was driving he started thinking about me in Bahrain and wondering how I was getting on. Suddenly he hit a car at the roundabout. Luckily nobody was hurt. The time was 4-35 p.m. Between Bahrain and the UK there is 3 hours time difference in summertime. The accident happened at exactly the time I dreamed of it. Mr A J W
Our psychic powers increase during dreams or day dreams. A mind to mind communication (telepathy) happened between the two of you. This ESP power has been tested extensively in the laboratory and scientist le J B Rhine have found that telepathy seems to work across any distance. A fluid state of mind yields better results than intensive concentration. The conditions were right for telepathy to take place- except the fact your father was driving of course.
OMENS OF DEATH
Tragic events, and perhaps a little intervention from the spirit world, finally brought our family together. My mother and father had separated when we were children. Dad remarried and Mum brought us up alone. But when my brother, at the age of 31, had a heart attack everyone gathered together.
During his convalescence my brother had a vision of a little boy stood by his bed. He described him as a boy of two years old with white hair and a face like an angel. My Gran, on dad’s side, showed us her family photographs. Amongst them was a picture of a two year old boy. ‘That’s the child I saw by my bed!’ exclaimed my brother. Gran explained that he was our father’s brother who had died at two years old. Until that day nobody had ever talked of this terrible family tragedy.
Two weeks later, tragedy struck again and mum too had a stroke. We really thought that we would loose her and I had a disturbing dream of a big glass coach being pulled by black horses with feathers on their heads.
Mum got better but weeks later dad was diagnosed as having lung cancer. He quickly deteriorated and died in the Hospice. On the wall of the funeral directors office was a large photograph of the glass coach pulled by black horses that I had seen in my dream. – P S
You were shown omens that a death was imminent but misunderstood their meaning. Your dream of the carriage and your brother’s vision were all warnings about your father. In a subtle way you were prepared for what was to happen. Events conspired to bring the family together during your father’s last weeks on earth. It gave you the chance to express the love your have for each other.
MY TERRIBLE DREAMS OF PREDICTING DISASTER
When I was seven years old, soon after my father had died, my mother took me on holiday to Hayling Island in Hampshire. I stood looking out to sea and had a horrific waking vision of an airship breaking in half. I saw everything in detail and still remember the look of terror on the pilot’s face as he fell through the air. The next day the papers were full of the terrible story of the R101 airship disaster.
My dreams also seem to reveal the future. For example I dreamed that people were shouting “Jean’s Dream has won! Jean’s Dream has won!” I was completely perplexed until I read the paper next day. I had no knowledge or interest in horse racing yet the winner of a major race had been a horse called ‘Jean’s Dream’!
Perhaps the most frightening premonition I’ve had started with a series of bad dreams about an atomic bomb and a building with just one tower. I had such a feeling of horror that for several nights I dreaded going to sleep. I would thrash around in my sleep and was heard to call out “The Russians!, the Russians!!”
The meaning of my nightmares was revealed on the television some weeks later. I saw on the News the very tower I had been dreaming about- A terrible nuclear disaster had happened at Chernobyl. – Mrs M
Your vision and dreams certainly seem to be true premonitions of the future. In every case there was no way you could have known that any of the events were about to take place. You are a very psychic lady with a remarkable gift of precognition.
Craig & Jane have made many psychic predictions that came true
MAN PREDICTS POOLS
You said in one of your replies to a letter about psychometry that it is not possible to tell the future by holding an object and psychically reading it’s vibration.
I know a man who clairvoyantly sees pictures of the future and predicts all sorts of things by holding an object. One day we tried it on the pools numbers and he got 6 out of 11 score draws. The other 5 were back to front such as 31 for 13 etc. Hazel B
Your friend is not reading the objects history through vibration rather he is using it as a link for his clairvoyance. Perhaps you could send me the numbers as well?
TOMORROW’S NEWS TODAY
Since my accident I have been getting premonitions and visions. I had a vision of an arena filled with fire and two months later the Bradford football stadium fire occurred. Also in another vision of an arena I saw rows of faces in agony- soon after the Hillsborough football disaster happened. A third vision showed people falling through the sky and 3 months later the Lockerbie air disaster took place. Recently I saw images that suggest that there will be a major earthquake soon. The images deeply upset me and sometimes I can’t sleep for days. – Don T
Just like you, I see a stream of images that I sometimes interpret as a future events. Sometimes the visions can be very vivid and disturbing. Consequently it is very important to learn to switch off or you can become overwhelmed by impressions. There are two psychic centres, known as chakras, that are mainly responsible for clairvoyant visions. These are located in the centre of the forehead and at the top of the head. Visualise doors closing over these centres and the flow of impressions will cease. Imagine them opening and the visions will begin again. This way you gain control of your gift. –
BEST FRIEND DIES
I was sitting near a window at my holiday home watching a dog playing near the water. Suddenly, to my surprise, it just disappeared. A few days later my beloved collie was taken ill and had to be put down. Was the scene on the beach a premonition of his death? – Mrs Hillary
Dogs have often been associated with omens of death ever since the times of the ancient Greeks when they were supposed to guide the souls of the dead to the underworld. Dogs and other loved pets and animals survive death as we do. Your collie will wait for you on the other side of life until, in many years time, it is your turn to join him.
FUTURE FORTUNE TELLER SHOCKED
I get flashes of insight that I find quite disturbing. As a young child I would tell my mother when people were going to die and they soon would. Sometimes lights would flash and doors open and close by themselves. Recently I smelt the aroma of my father’s cigar smoke and rushed around to his house to check that he was all right. It was just as well that I did as he had just been attacked on his way home by a group of youths with knives.
My strangest experience happened whilst I sat in a fortune teller’s waiting room. I sat and chatted to a grey haired old lady, who was as real as you or me, but then she just disappeared. I told the fortune teller about my what had just happened and described the lady in detail and what she said. He was shocked to realise that I had accurately described his mother who had died over 10 years ago. – Shelly R
You have a natural gift and with training you could make an excellent psychic. At first clairvoyant awareness comes sporadically and when we least expect it. Next time you visit a psychic it may be worth asking if he knows of someone who can help you with your own development. You need to understand how to control your remarkable abilities. –
SHE WHO THROW COINS TELL FORTUNE
My friend and I tried a simple experiment with coins by letting heads stand for yes and tails for no. At first we took it as a joke asking things like “Was Marilon Monroe killed by the Mafia” but soon we discovered that the answers it gave were very accurate. We want to try it again but would like some background information about this. – Josie P
The ancient Chinese developed a very interesting oracle based upon the throwing of three coins six times. By giving the coins a numerical value a hexagram ,which is a series of straight or broken lines, is worked out and looked up in a book called the I Ching. Some of the China’s greatest philosophers contributed to this very wise book. Confucius considered it to be the most important book in Chinese history and the I Ching was one of the few publications that Mao was unable to ban in the ‘cultural revolution’.
We asked the I Ching for you about Marilon Monroe’s death and it said: “When tempers flair up in the family, too great severity brings remorse.”- Maybe this implies that there was a bitter argument in the Kennedy family that resulted in Monroe’s death?
RED INDIAN PREDICTS GRAND NATIONAL WINNER!
A couple of months ago, my husband woke up and told me that an old red Indian told him that ESHA NESS meant the “eye of the storm”. My husband guessed that Esha Ness was a race horse so we scanned the papers for days to see if it was running. We’d almost forgotten about the dream, when we discovered Esha Ness was running in the Grand National-so naturally we backed it. We stood to win almost £5,000 but that was the year that the Grand National was abandoned because of a false starting signal. Some of the horses ran unaware of the mix up and even though Esha Ness won we lost out.
My husband firmly believes that because he backed the horse, things happened the way they did. Can a person control fate in this way or is this just a bizarre coincidence? – J M -Dundee
Many psychic people have spirit guides from the North American Indian tradition. Your husband’s guide was proving his reality by giving him the winner of the Grand National! However it is said that they will not give us information that we can abuse or financially profit by. Think of this experience as a valuable lesson in both the reality and integrity of the spirit world.
I was told a fascinating story by a man who used to go to Cottingley Manor School with Peter Sutcliffe the serial killer nicknamed the Yorkshire Ripper. He described how one of the boys had a dream which he told in the playground to every boy or girl present. “Horrible! Horrible!” repeated the boy “But Peter will get caught.”
In those days nobody thought that the young Peter Sutcliffe would become a murderer. The children thought that the pupil’s dream was nonsense but time proved him correct. – J L.
The wonderful medium Doris Stokes used her psychic abilities to try to identify the Yorkshire Ripper. She gave a private consultation to one of the family of the victims and correctly said that the murderer was a lorry driver named Sutcliffe. Unfortunately, due to a similarity of names with people the sitter knew, the police did not follow up her clairvoyantly perceived information. It seems that the spiritual powers knew about Sutcliffe’s wickedness years before he committed his hideous crimes.
On the night of 12 March 96 I had a vivid dream of a lady dressed in a beautiful blue dress. She turned her kind face to me and said “Don’t worry, we shall be looking after the children.” I was puzzled by the dream until I heard the dreadful news on the TV about the massacre of the children. I’m sure that I was given this message from the angels to bring comfort to others. – Diane J
Remarkably, other readers have written in to say similar things to yourself. Many foresaw the terrible events at Dunblain and some dreamed of angelic beings who gave messages of reassurance. Although the massacre of the innocents was horrific it’s comforting to remember that every little soul who died has a special place waiting for them in the afterlife.
TRUE TO THE LETTER
A gypsy girl called at my door and told me that someone lived in my house who had a bad leg. She was referring to my crippled husband. She said that my sister would also have a bad leg and have to go to hospital but that she’d be all right. (The next week my sister was taken into hospital to have her varicose veins removed.) She went on to say that my son was engaged to a girl with the initial M but would marry a girl with the initial S and they would have twins.
The Gypsy girl’s prediction came true to the letter including the twins. Now tell me, how could this young girl have possibly known of these things? – Anthea H
The word ‘Gypsy’ is derived from ‘Egyptian’ and some people believe that these people are the custodians of the secret paranormal knowledge from the times of the pharaohs. It is more likely that the gypsies migrated from India and brought with them some of the psychic knowledge of the yogis. Fact and fantasy often merge but clearly some gypsies truly are psychic.
I had a vision that I felt was a prophesy so I wrote it down, sealed it in an envelope, dated it 18.5.93 and asked to my doctor to keep it for me as proof. I had described a mid air crash with one aircraft taking off in cloudy conditions and one in sunny conditions. My prophesy happened in Germany on 23.6.93 exactly as I had described. My doctor was amazed when he saw the letter. – D T
If other readers have an interesting prophesy send it to this column.
GYPSY PREDICTIONS WERE CORRECT
When I was eighteen a gypsy insisted on reading my palm. She said that because I had bright green eyes it would be unlucky for us both if she didn’t- there was no charge. She said I wouldn’t marry my boyfriend J J but would marry a man with the initials R M G. Also, I would have a baby but I wouldn’t bring it up. Instead I would adopt another child. It all happened. My husband’s initials are R M G , my baby was still born and we have adopted a little girl. – Joan G
Remarkable! The Romanies, who originated in Northern India, are said to possess secret divination knowledge passed down from the Ancient Egyptians. For centuries they were the custodians of the tarot cards.
WHITE COFFIN FORETELLS DEATH
I dreamed one night of the house being full of people. A minister was also there . I looked around in panic because I knew someone was missing but I didn’t know who. A white coffin was then brought into the room. A week later my brother died suddenly. We gathered for the wake and to my horror his coffin was white-just like in my dream. – Linda C
Most dreams of death are symbolic of being unable to cope with life’s problems. You however had a true precognition of your brother’s death: His passing was soon after the dream and white coffins are unusual.
IN TOUCH WITH ANGELS
In 1952 I dreamed that King George VI had died. The vision remains with me to this day. I can remember how I saw the funeral train pull into the station surrounded by the royal family in their funeral garb. I told my husband of the dream in the morning and later in the day heard the news that the king had died. Funnily enough though, Diana’s death took me completely by surprise.
The most remarkable ‘psychic’ experience I’ve ever witnessed happened in 1978 when my baby grandson was very ill. When I stayed at my son’s house, to help with the baby, improvements were being made to the building. Consequently the window to my room was boarded up.
One night the baby was staying in my dark room when I awoke in to see my whole room ablaze with brilliant light. It was coming from my grandson’s cot! I sat up in bed and looked at it with complete astonishment. “Could this be an angel of light come to heal the sick child?” I thought. I could see the whole room clearly. Suddenly the light was gone and the room was once again plunged into pitch darkness. From that point on the baby made a rapid recovery and is now a very healthy 18 year old man. – Joy S.
It would be hard to dismiss the lights you saw as car headlights etc. as your room was boarded up. Also, as you saw the room clearly it is unlikely to be an optical effect caused by the random firing of the rods and cones at the back of the retina. You saw something and the baby got better. Perhaps it really was a healing angel of light?
GORBY LOOKED FOR SWEETER FUTURE
I’ve consulted many psychics in my time. They’ve used a number of techniques: Tarot cards, tea leaves, runes, crystal ball, and one even read the patterns made in sand. Some readings were accurate but others were completely off the mark. I believe that there is a lot to be gained by visiting psychics but would like to know which style of fortune telling proves to be the most accurate. Alan D
The paraphernalia used is only as good as the clairvoyance of the psychic. Really talented psychics and mediums need no props at all. For example, in 1990 Russia’s President, Mikhail Gorbachev wanted advice about his future.He asked the blind Bulgarian clairvoyant Vanga for advice. Vanga is 79 year old and famous for her forecasts in the former Soviet Union. She advised Gorby to put two sugar cubes under his pillow and leave them two days before she visited him. Vanga claims that she can predict a persons future by touching the cubes.
A Kremlin spokesman said that Gorbachev grew up in Southern Russia “where people are guided by omens and premonitions” They added “However intelligent and educated a man is, old traditions die hard”
Wouldn’t it have been great to have been a fly on the wall. Were her predictions sweet or sour?
MY FUTILE WARNINGS OF THE FUTURE
When I was 25 and worked on the railway as a fireman I had a terrible accident in which my pelvis was badly crushed by an engine. During my long convalescence I often reflected on a dream I had had six months before the event. I had dreamed of the accident before it happened- I don’t know why because nothing I could have done would have prevented it happening as it did.
I’ve dreamed of car accidents and then witnessed them next morning. My most frightening premonition happened late at night. I dreamed that I was being strangled. I awoke screaming and unable to get my breath. To me it seemed that temperature in the bedroom had dropped to near freezing but my wife assured me that the room was quite normal. I looked at my watch it was 6.30 in the morning.
Next morning at 9 a.m. my cousin telephoned to say that my aunt had died a few hours ago at exactly 6. 30 am. It is obvious I have premonitions but for what reason do they happen when there’s nothing in the world I can do to prevent them? – B T- Canton, Cardiff
I’ve just finished filming a new programme about predictions, for London Weekend Television, that will be screened later this year. They asked my wife Jane and myself to predict the world events that will happen over the coming months. There is nothing that we can do to alter the destiny of the people whose future we’ve seen. But sometimes a premonition can prevent an accident- you need only read the many examples people send to this column. Of course the conundrum is that if someone does change their plans because of a dream then the events never take place and there’s no way of knowing that the dream was a premonition
I CAN’T HELP SEEING THE FUTURE
My friends call me ‘Psychic Pat’ because I see the future and always seem to get it right. But my gift frightens me because it’s so spontaneous. For example, I have predicted the right sex of babies every single time I’ve been asked. Someone tells me that they are pregnant and I just blurt out the sex. But inside I’m saying to myself “What if I’m wrong?”
I would prefer to keep quiet but I just can’t keep my big mouth shut. When a friend recently told me that her daughter was expecting I said without thinking “She’ll have twin girls” Even though there was no history of twins in the family sure enough twin girls was what she had.
It’s not only babies but I see jobs, exams things people are going to say… It’s as if my predictive ability grips hold of me and won’t let go. What should can do to control it? – Pat B .
Clairvoyance works best if you are spontaneous and try not to censor the thoughts that enter your mind. As soon as you try to control psychic powers the more elusive they become. Psychic powers are best controlled by learning to open and close the psychic centres called chakras. My book The Psychic Workbook or a good book on yoga will explain how the chakras work.
DREAM OF ROBBERY PROVES TRUE
When I worked at the Royal Marsden Hospital I had a dream of being at work. I saw two odd looking fellows walk along the corridor and towards the room where we would collect our wages. “I bet they’ve come to rob the place” I said to my friend who was stood next to me.
The next morning when I came to work the hospital was swarming with police. A robbery had taken place and a porter had been hurt. I told the police about my dream. To their amazement everything I had dreamed was exactly as had taken place except there were four robbers and not two as I has seen. – Mrs E P-
Your dream was not a premonition because you saw events as they were taking place. You have remarkable clairvoyant skills. Telepathy may be at the root of these powers as, later in your letter, you tell me you always seem to know who’s at the other end of the phone when it rings. You may have ‘picked up’ the thoughts of the porter.
DREAM WARNING COMES TRUE IN AFTERNOON
In February I had a dream about my husband who had died 15 years ago. He looked sad and was urgently trying to tell me something but I couldn’t make out the words. I told him that I didn’t understand so he crossed his arms over his chest.
On the afternoon of the same day my brother had a heart attack and was rushed to hospital. When I arrived he had been unconscious for some time. I stood by the side of the bed and spoke. To everyone’s surprise he awoke. A tear trickled from the side of his eye as he whispered my husband’s name and died. – Jean I- Hednesford, Staffs.
Your husband crossed his arms in the same way as you would lay someone in a coffin. He knew what was about to happen and was there later that afternoon to help your brother make his transition.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW YOUR FUTURE?
A psychic phone reading can help you know the way forward. Using their precognition and psychic insight the psychic telephone readers will gain clairvoyant insight into your situation during their phone readings with you. Although they do not claim to know the future they can help you to see the way forward. Psychic Readings can be a fulfilling way to address your feelings about your fate, destiny and way forward.
