Continuing our earlier discussion in my previous blog, regarding precognition and whether on not it is real or valid:
From a mainstream scientific perspective, the existence of psi phenomena remains controversial- the serious sceptics dismiss all of the supporting scientific evidence and decree that 100% of it can only be due to flukes, flaws or fraud. Yet there are some scientists who are confident that this dismissive sceptical opinion is wrong. Overall there is a body of strong positive evidence for the following: 1) Telepathy 2) Remote viewing 3) Implicit precognition 4) Random number generation and 5) The global consciousness project.
Yet notwithstanding this, applying scientific methods to investigate psi experiences generates uncertainty due to the assumptions about the nature of reality which are formulated within the scientific worldview i.e. the status quo tends to prevail and so it downplays genuine thought innovation. Psi and magical concepts tend to be taboo within the academic and research worlds, and as Upton Sinclair said: “It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on him not understanding it.” The data in support of precognition and possibly other related phenomena is quite strong statistically and it would be widely accepted if it pertained to something more mundane, yet most scientists reject the possible reality of these abilities without ever even looking at the data! Then at the other extreme there are true believers who base their beliefs on anecdotes and personal experience. The debunkers generally won’t be convinced by any amount of data which is the shame because these abilities don’t actually contradict what we know about science, says Prof Jessica Uttis who was Chairman of Statistic Department at the University of California at Irving, and she was also the president of the American statistical Association in 2016 – the above statements are an extract from the report which she gave to the US Congress.
The concept of time is slippery for many psychologists and therefore they simply don’t believe that precognition can be real, and when leading Cornell University psychologist Darryl Bem arguably proved otherwise and wrote his findings in a paper called ‘’Feeling the Future,” this was widely called ridiculous and his report was dispatched to the realms of “ crazy land.” Yet Seers throughout history maintain that we are influenced not only by our past but also our future. So, if one completely accepts today’s worldview as inviolate or absolute, then the strength and quality of the evidence or the size of the experiments conducted, simply don’t matter. The phenomena are considered impossible, and that’s that! Meanwhile there’s a really interesting project running for over two decades called the Global Consciousness Project, which is a worldwide version of a random number generator experiment, [RMG] where the outputs of RMG monitors located around the world are compared against long-term baselines during events of major global interest (e.g. terrorist attacks, the death of Princess Diana). This experiment differs because it doesn’t involve individuals studied in the lab but rather is a global experiment which includes everyone, and also tests not the effects of intention but rather the simultaneous focused attention of millions of people. All of the data from this project have been publicly available through its website from 1998, when the project first began. After collecting 500 worldwide events (which took 18 years, because fortunately major worldwide events don’t happen very often) the experiment had achieved an overall result above the Seven Sigma benchmark. That’s associated with odds against chance greater than 1 trillion to one.
If we accept that precognition is real then the traditional understanding of cause, where cause precedes the effect, is turned on its head. Since if we accept it, precognition in the future can in fact influence the present and presumably the future leaps back across time to affect the present in a time reversed flow. So scientifically this requires big paradim shift, which will require powerful evidence – this full shift to acceptance is still awaited.
Premonitions can be experienced calmly, and in my case that’s where certainty of outcome prevails, and this was the case when I predicted the outcome of a fatal car crash when I was a passenger aged 17. I survived as I had the premonition and I wedged myself on the floor behind the driver’s seat. I remember frantically shouting to the others to get down. I was miraculously cut from the wreckage, injured but alive. The others sadly were not so lucky. Sometimes things unravel as predicted and sometimes there is scope to change the future outcome. Moreover, I was delighted to read the recent Daily Mail article about Dr Mossbridge’s, conviction that science will accept precognition since this is one of my big prayers, i.e. that science, spirituality and the supernormal will become more closely aligned. Then as Nicolás Tesla said:” the day science begins to study nonphysical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.”
Are psi abilities distributed amongst the general population just like virtually any other talent? I reckon so, however the key to these abilities being developed is belief and motivation. So what are the benefits of precognition? Ignore pre-emptive flashes at your cost- as I discovered when I disregarded subtle messages saying ‘’Don’t go horse riding today, accident awaits.” After being airlifted into A+E and spending six months in a wheelchair the words hindsight is a wonderful thing really rang true. I wanted to go, so I listened to my head instead of my heart and ignored the voices at my peril! Well ultimately psi shows how interconnected we all are and how important these skills are for the evolution of humanity. Precognition can warn us of situations that are best to be avoided and thus they can keep you and those you love safe from harm, if you heed what you are being shown. Precognition can also nudge you towards situations that are for your greater benefit and lead you in the direction of your dreams and your hearts desires.
Over the years, precognition is a talent which I’ve been able to fine tune and develop. Last month my eldest daughter went on a skiing trip. About a week before she was due to leave, I became very anxious and on waking each morning I was having repeated visions of a really bad fall and not withstanding the new helmet she got for Christmas, a terrible head injury. A few days later I read in a national newspaper that the conditions in France where she was heading were very bad, and tragically there had been a number of deaths with skiers killed on ice as hard as concrete. Understandably, I felt panicked, but I talked to my daughter and asked her to ensure that her skis edges were sharpened so that they would have some bite on the ice. I asked her to be careful and cautious and not take any unnecessary risks- not to attempt to ski down the lower part of the slopes back to the resort where it would be even more icy and potentially dangerous, and generally to keep her wits about her and proceed with care. My daughters both rolled their eyes and sighed: “Here she goes again psychic Sally is ruining the skiing holiday!” Actually, on the last day my daughter was wiped out from behind by an out-of-control skier, she fell backwards, hit her head as I’d foreseen, and she was unconscious for a short while – dizzy and sick afterwards, but she survived without serious injury. She was fine and I believe that sharing the information certainly mitigated potentially very serious consequences. So, precognition is an amazing gift and I’m truly grateful for these abilities.
For my youngest daughters 18th birthday I took her for a reading with a famous psychic in London, and the psychic told me in my reading that I should focus on finishing my novel which would become an international bestseller. Indeed, it did! The novel was published April 2018 and became a bestseller in several categories, and the Audio book recently won first prize in the annual Royal Dragonfly competition.
