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.

The ability to see into the future has been recognised since ancient times when kings and ordinary people all sought access to the future via Seers, Mediums, Diviners and similar. Premonitions are a foretelling of the future, although sceptics argue they can be attributed to mere coincidence. Precognition is the ability to perceive, to see a future event through extra sensory perception (ESP) or dreams, clairvoyance, before it happens. The term is derived from the Latin pray ‘’Prae’’ meaning-‘’prior to’’ and “cognition” meaning ‘’to gain knowledge.’’ Precognition, thanks to Nostradamus, Edgar Cayce among others, holds a special place amongst psychic [psi] phenomenon which also challenges some of our beliefs about linear time and the sequence of cause and effect, hence scientists remain unconvinced. But the concept instinctively resonates with many of us. Apparently, Abraham Lincoln had a precognitive dream before his assassination. Prophets have featured in many religions from Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and these include Muhammed, Moses to name but a few, and in Roman Catholicism we encounter Fatima.

My personal experience of psi, precognition specifically, have all been related to death, or near -death incidents relating to family, friends and loved ones. In fact, this is one of the key themes in my No1 bestselling novel “Spirit of Prophecy- the Psychic Detectives #1’’ and as Rosetta the main character explains she’s: “been having the same nightmare for two weeks now belting out in her sleep like some cheap Christmas CD stuck on a loop. She knew her premonitions could go either way, and sometimes the outcome wasn’t entirely signed. sealed and delivered, so things could be prevented, altered, maybe even diverted. This was one of those.”

This has been the case with my own experiences, the first I can recall, being at the age of 14 with the death of my grandfather who had been unwell (so coincidence could be argued to some extent) and he had moved in with us so that my mum could look after him. It was an unremarkable Saturday and my younger sister, and I caught the bus into Bradford city centre to go shopping. As the bus passed the town hall, I glanced up at the clock and with a sharp intake of breath I realised that we had only 15 minutes to get back home. I dragged my protesting sister off the bus and running we caught the next one back home. As we walked around the corner into our cul-de-sac the neighbour opposite intercepted us and took us into her house.

Its granddad isn’t it, and we are too late to say goodbye to him, aren’t we? I uttered.

The neighbour looked taken aback, as Granddad sadly had suddenly died five minutes earlier of a heart attack. Consequently, with another of my subsequent premonitions which involved my brother Andrew and the neighbour’s son Graham who were going away on a holiday with a group of friends, this time she totally believed me. All of them, the other mothers relayed what I’d foreseen and warned their sons not to hire a car or drive in Turkey, their holiday destination. The group of young men followed the advice and returned home safe and sound. Praise be.

This premonition started about a month prior to their departure in a wine bar in the city where I worked and when I was out to lunch with a fellow investment banking friend. It was a dimly lit barrels and sawdust sort of spot, and as we were chatting animatedly the candle which had been firmly lodged in an old waxy wine bottle in between us, fluttered brightly, then suddenly in mid- conversation the candle literally levitated out of the bottle and ominously crashed on top of the table- the flame was abruptly snuffed out. My friend and I looked at one another and both of us swore under our breath as this was not a good omen. My friend was keen to point out that it had been me speaking at the time. What it foretold took me over a week to piece together. Meanwhile I wasn’t sleeping, and I was waking up at 1:35 AM night after night, as I tried to figure this out. I became increasingly frantic as I realised that it had something to do with my brother and a car accident. I begged my parents not to let my brother go on holiday to hide his passport; anything to stop this happening. Sensibly they managed the situation responsibly and shared the information with my brother and the rest of his friends. This worked of course, but only the disaster actually unfolding as I foresaw it would validate that the premonition that I’d had was correct – but who needs to be proved right under such ominous circumstances?

So, does precognition perceive the actual future which must occur, or a probable future that might occur? My response to that would be; both – either or.

Another premonition occurred while I was in my second year at university, I woke up one morning with the strongest gut instinct that I needed to go home ASAP. I skipped lectures and caught the train to Leeds where my bemused father picked me up. The following day I went out riding with my friend Kevin who was helping my father exercise my show jumping ponies whilst I was away at university. All seemed fine, until the next day my father banged on my bedroom door and rushed me to the stables where my 14.2hh BSJA pony Redbrooke had gone down with a really bad colic attack. The vet came out several times, but heart- breakingly this ended with a fatal twisted gut. So, it seemed that my horse had called me home to say farewell and for that I was extremely grateful.

Carrying on from yesterday’s post about aligning your attitude with your dreams, I’d like to give you some practical steps on how you might achieve this.

There are as many ways of beginning this journey in search of your dreams, as there are “self-help” gurus out there offering to help you on your journey. On that I’ll discuss in more detail but for now I just say: always listen to your intuition, trust your heart- your-gut- your own inner voice: no one knows your truth better than you.

Now I’ll just share with you the simple method I use, which does get results if repeated regularly- it takes 30 days to create a new habit after all. I thank and credit Andy Shaw of “Creating a Bug-Free Mind,” and Janet Attwood [The Passion Test] and Marci Shimoff [your Year of Miracles] for the essence of this system, because they taught it to me:

1/ Get very clear in your own mind what it is you want: [INTENTION]

What are the 3 specific intentions that you want to appear? What time frame are you aiming for, 6 months or a year? Get yourself an inspiring journal and write your intentions down. There is something decidedly effective about expressing your thoughts on paper.

2/ Live your dream inside of your head; make it a reality for you. Or if you’re more of a visual sort then create a VISION BOARD – remember to think big. [ATTENTION]

This really is the fun part of the whole process. It involves using your imagination to really feel, create and experience your dreams come true. Create a mini-video where you’re the star, and the producer too and feel how amazing your life is. Notice who you are with, the sights, sounds, wonderful smells and so on. Each morning when you first awaken or last thing at night before you go to sleep [depending on your preferred bio-realm] RUN your video with a grin on your face and within, and then say your intentions silently, or out loud – as you prefer. For example:

*I am fully loved and supported, and;

*I give and receive love and compassion in abundance.

*I am magnetizing financial freedom and plentitude and have more than enough so I can contribute to assist others.

*I am connecting with and expressing my passions with vibrance, vitality and infinite vision.

The focusing on the present, ‘I am…’ anchors your intention in the NOW, and no matter what happened yesterday or what might happen tomorrow, that’s what counts. Then aim to notice what synchronicities show up during the day – how you are moving forwards, where things are becoming less stuck and how are you moving into alignment with your aims? Jot down your observations in your journal along with the date and your feelings/thoughts at the time.

It’s not just enough to dream it, to experience it inside our minds, we also have to actually do some work and move forward in order to bring our reality into the world. Again, it is important not to look in too much detail at the HOW will I achieve my goal.

Generally, its about avoiding extremes- those who simply nurture positive fantasies of the future sunny uplands, sitting on their butt, without taking action tend to flounder. Whereas those with some defined goals for the future tend to fare well, especially when coupled with a measure of pragmatic realism and resilience.

3/ Relax, breathe and believe that it’s already here: [NO TENSION]

Just focus on one thing that will bring you closer to where you want to be. Rhonda Byrne has a very good quote that describes this perfectly. “You can only EVER take one step at a time, so that’s all you actually need to do – take the next step.”

Above all give it time and be ready to receive. Release resistance and the urge to try control outcomes, just be open and trusting.


The beauty of following this system is; you don’t know exactly how you will succeed, but the Universe does, and it will lead you gently down the right path to success. 

I really hope this simple system of making your dreams into a reality gives you some inspiration to try it in your own lives. Remember; “If you think you can, or you think you can’t, either way you are right!” GIVE IT A GO AND FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS!       

Before I finish today, I’d just like to give you some quick and simple tips on ways to change your attitude from the negative to the positive:

1/ At some point each day, ideally as part of your morning routine/ritual spend 5 minutes listing in your head all things you can be and indeed aim to be grateful for. As with your intentions, jot them down in your journal later on.

2/ Read, listen to and watch less news. In fact, why not do what I did and have a total media ban for a month. You’ll be amazed at how much the negative news has been subtly impacting on your attitude and thoughts.

3/ When you are walking somewhere, smile at people, for absolutely no reason other than you want to share your good mood and attitude.

4/ We live in a world of duality – for every negative circumstance, there is ALWAYS a positive opportunity. Look for the positive in everything and just don’t focus on the negative.

5/ Pay absolutely no mind to anything anyone says about you or does to you. Their opinions cannot hurt you – only your reaction can. Just turn away and be happy and proud of who you really are.

6/ Get into the habit of performing small “random acts of kindness” every single day. They make the recipients day and they also make you feel absolutely awesome. It can be something as simple as standing for a lady or an elderly person on the train or the bus; holding a door open for somebody; or giving a few pesos to an elderly or disabled beggar. It doesn’t matter really because once it becomes an ingrained habit for you, the benefits will surely be seen in your attitude, your thoughts and your actions.

7/ Don’t listen to or spread gossip. Gossip really only hurts one person – YOU! You never know the full story of anyone’s life, so don’t judge them and certainly don’t start or pass on rumors or gossip about them. There is only one person in this world you can control and that is you.

There are many other little tips, but that’s a good start, and I’m sure you can come up with many more. In fact, please feel free to leave a comment on this blog, with your ideas and tips. I’m always excited to get new ideas.  

Do take a look at my debut novel: Spirit of Prophecy. You will find many of the topics that I cover in these blogs intricately woven into a wonderful “whodunit” mystery tale. You can find it here: http://bit.ly/2LeRJ84

  Following on from the post about Gratitude:

‘Each one of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.’

                                                Albert Schweitzer

 

Today, we will look at the role that attitude plays in both improving your own life and the lives of those that you surround yourself with; your loved ones, your friends, your work colleagues and everyone else that you interact with on a daily basis.

Your thoughts and actions are like ripples on a pond, spreading out, influencing and affecting everyone around you. Most important though your attitude affects YOU. It affects how you feel, how you think and how you act. If you want to succeed at anything you need to ensure your attitude is spot on. Henry Ford said it best, when he said; “If you think you can, or you think you can’t, then either way you are right!” If you truly want to achieve something, especially something beyond your normal comfort zone, if you think you can do it; you’re well on the way to success, but if you start off the whole process with a list of reasons why you can’t achieve your goal – then guess what? You won’t! ATTITUDE IS PARAMOUNT!

The key to success is belief coupled with resilience. If life throws you off track – which it will on occasions- then you can develop the mind-set that says; Ok, so now I get back up, dust myself off, see what the lesson is for me in this, and then I course correct.’ Most of us desperately want to believe in ourselves, but we allow that incessant little critter inside our head (our ego) to convince us that we are just simply not good enough to do it. You know what I’m talking about – you come up with an idea, something you really want to try, and pretty soon that little voice inside your head gives you 101 reasons why you can’t do it – you’re too old, you’re not smart enough, you don’t have enough resources, you don’t know enough about it…and so on and so on, ad infinitum. What your ego is trying to do is protect you from the pain of failure, retain the status quo, and keep you as it sees it, in the familiar ‘safety zone’ of the known.

The status quo is simple, it’s comfortable, it’s easy, so your ego tries its very best to keep you in check at every opportunity and remind you of your perceived shortcomings in order to ‘protect you.’ What we need to understand is that our ego is NOT us – it is not the real you, it is merely a construct or collection of pre-programmed ideas, concepts and belief patterns that were drilled into us from our very earliest days, and often these have negative connotations and are limiting. You may remember your parents, your teachers or your friends saying things like; “Oh rich people are just lucky, or even worse, all rich people must be crooks; you need to find a stable career, something to support your family; leaders are born, not made – some of us are just meant to be followers; only the really smart people can succeed in life; or perhaps the worst of all, you just have to accept your lot in life, there’s nothing you can do about it” As we grow up if we accept these things as being gospel then we limit our opportunities and life accordingly. Sometimes just singing to the same old tune keeps you stuck and contracted instead of being open to change and resonating with awesome new possibilities.

 You have infinite power inside you to change anything in your life and in your circumstances – life does not have to happen to you; you can make life happen for you, and it all begins with your attitude.

I love this quote from Rhonda Byrne’s book “The Hero”; “It isn’t necessary to have big dreams, but if you don’t have big dreams; big dreams can’t come true.” One of the first things that happens when we begin to get “ground down” by life is that we lose the inspiration and ability to dream. Without dreams we are just mere shells of the amazing, awesome human beings that we were meant to be. Dreams, aspirations, visions and goals and expressing our gifts are what make us unique in this world.

Everyone can benefit from big, wild, seemingly impossible dreams – it’s what gives us a sense of purpose, of fulfillment, and of wonder. If you reach for the stars, even if you don’t always make it, you’ll surely come closer to heaven. We need to remind ourselves that this is OUR life; not our parent’s life, not our bosses’ life, not our children’s life, not even our spouses’ life – but it is OUR life and its up to us to work toward making our dreams come true, for our own sake and for the planet.

The main key to achieving your dreams, is to actually start out on the road to achieving them –THE WHAT OR THE WHERE, not in trying to figure out in great detail how to get there. Whether you believe it is The Law of Attraction, the Power of the Universe, Karma, or just plain good luck doesn’t actually matter; the reality is that when you are following your dreams and approaching life with the right attitude; the people, the circumstances and the opportunities WILL appear in your life and will show you the way.

Be sure to stop back tomorrow and catch Part 2 of this enthralling article on how to upgrade your attitude. I’ll have some amazingly practical steps to impart to you on just how you can make your attitude align with your dreams. You won’t want to miss that.
