WORLD PREDICTIONS FOR 2001
(Posted January 3, 2001)
PSYCHIC PREDICTIONS FOR SPECIFIC MONTHS OR SOMETIMES YEARS, DO NOT ALWAYS MANIFEST DURING THE TIME DESIGNATED AND COULD HAPPEN AT OTHER TIMES DURING THE PRESENT OR ANOTHER YEAR. TIMING IS ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT ASPECTS OF PSYCHIC PREDICTIONS. EVERYONE WANTS TO KNOW WHEN, BUT IT IS NOT ALWAYS POSSIBLE TO DETERMINE. IMPORTANT EVENTS IN THE LIFE OF AN INDIVIDUAL, NATION, OR THE WORLD CAN OFTEN BE SENSED OR INTUITIVELY KNOWN, BUT NOT NECESSARILY THE TIME OR EXACT PLACE WHERE SUCH EVENTS WILL TAKE PLACE.

They threw the copy of the Holy Quran on the ground while searching my bag and put me in a solitary cell,” Al-Ghamdi told Okaz newspaper. He added that they did not allow him to contact the Saudi Embassy in Copenhagen. Mistreatment of Arabs and Muslims, especially Saudis, has become a daily occurrence in the United States and Europe, despite assurances by top government officials that they are being protected.

GOD BLESS AMERICA
A NATION MOURNS, SHOCKED AND STUNNED,
ACTS OF WAR COMMITTED BY MADMEN
WILL NOT BE CONDONED BY A JUST WORLD!
After reflecting on the various images that came to me while meditating on predictions for 2001, I now realize that some of those images were predicted out-of-time, and actually referred to the ATTACK ON AMERICA:
Rise in TERRORIST ACTIVITIES and/or EXPLOSIVE PATTERNS.
Late May, the ANGEL OF DEATH will visit, taking large numbers.
DEATH RULES in the SOUTH, with FIRE in the AIR or SKY, in or under the GROUND.The American Airline flights that originated in Boston were flown SOUTH to New York by the TERRORIST PILOTS and into the WORLD TRADE CENTER TWIN TOWERS, creating FIRE in the AIR or SKY, in or under the GROUND with the collapse of the TWIN TOWERS that smolder still (9/13/01). WASHINGTON, DC and the state of VIRGINIA where THE PENTAGON was ATTACKED BY TERRORISTS using a United Airlines plane as a BOMB are considered to be located in “the South,” both are south of the Mason-Dixon Line.
PLUNDER in AUGUST must be stopped from ON HIGH.Immediately following the TERRORIST ATTACKS in New York City and Washington, DC, on 9/11, the Federal Aviation Administration cancelled all flights in the United States, while fully armed U.S. military planes patrolled the skies above the targeted cities. No other commercial or private airplanes were going to be allowed to be used as missiles or bombs in ACTS OF WAR against the American government and the American people from ON HIGH.
Unexpected DRAMATIC CHANGES could well involve the THREAT OF WAR. ACTS OF WAR have been committed against the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. The governments of the world are now uniting in an effort to blot out international terrorism. President Bush, the Congress and Senate of the United States, and the U.S. Military and NATO Alliances prepare to retaliate for these horrendous acts committed against not only the AMERICAN PEOPLE but against all HUMANITY. The World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City housed office complexes for businesses from 80 countries besides the United States. Thousands of civilians from around the world have lost their lives due to these horrendous ACTS OF TYRANNY. 9/15 AOL News: The Taliban supreme leader in Afghanistan has urged Muslims there and around the world to face the threat of U.S. attacks firmly and to prepare for jihad (holy war).

In spite of the traumatic plunge of the Nasdaq in 2000 and its instability so far in 2001 (July 21, 2001), it is my definite intuitive impression that the Nasdaq will get back to 5,000 and eventually go to 10,000, while the DOW climbs to 15,000 and eventually to 25,000…in the next few years. Investors just need to “keep the faith,” and listen to the Still Small Voice Within when it comes to picking stocks! The second half of 2002 and most of 2003 bode well for the world economy.
In 2000 I predicted that Al Gore would be the next president. 11/12 DRUDGE REPORT: BIG MEDIA FLORIDA RECOUNT: GORE TOPPED BUSH IF ALL UNDER/OVER VOTES COUNTED; LEGAL STRATEGY DESTROYED CHANCES: A vote-by-vote review of untallied ballots in the 2000 Florida presidential election commissioned by the nation’s main media outlets shows Al Gore edged ahead of George W. Bush “under all the scenarios for counting all undervotes and overvotes statewide,” the DRUDGE REPORT has learned. Bush would have narrowly prevailed in the partial recounts sought by Gore, but Gore could have “reversed the outcome–by the smallest of margins–had he pursued and gained a complete statewide recount,” according to one interpretation of the database compiled by the monstermedia consortium. [Each media outlet will produce a news analysis based on the database product. Check out CNN, NYT, World Tribune, Washington Post.] My feeling during the recount was that Gore should have toughed it out, since my gut told me that he had won. Perhaps he’s relieved not to be in the driver’s seat at this moment in time??? 5/26/2002 The recent revelations concerning ignored F.B.I. information about middle eastern pilots training in Arizona prior to the attacks of 9/11 will cost GEORGE W. BUSH the next election.

The listening technology is rapid and accurate and should be relatively cheap to develop, the study’s authors explain. Dr. Matthew A. Cooper and colleagues at the University of Cambridge, UK, based their detection method on quartz crystals. These crystals vibrate when exposed to an electric field. As the electric field strengthens, the vibrations increase. The vibrations grow even stronger when an additional mass is attached to the crystals. Cooper’s team coated quartz crystals with an antibody that attracts a type of herpes virus. Once viruses attached to the quartz, the researchers increased the intensity of the electric field. The goal of the intensification was to trigger the virus to break free from the quartz. Using the quartz as a miniature microphone, the researchers were able to hear the sounds produced as viruses broke away from the quartz. In fact, they were able to tell from the sound how many viruses were present. The technique, known as rupture event scanning, was so sensitive that it could tell whether only a single virus was present.” Is the New Age finally coming of age?

Perhaps a trip to INNER SPACE will ultimately supply the answers. IN 2002 THE COSMIC PATTERN CONTINUES: January 10, 2002, Earth Changes TV: “THE VATICAN AND NASA MONITOR DISCLOSURE OF NEW PLANETS, NASA Science News: “Astronomers are discovering new worlds outside our solar system at a dizzying pace.

BREAKTHROUGHS in the development of COLD FUSION and ALTERNATIVE ENERGY RESOURCES will flood the world market by 2002-2003. October 7, 2000: “New Breakthrough Overunity Device announced: A scientific team headed by Dr. Tom Bearden announced they have developed and tested a new Overunity Device that produces Coefficient of Performance of 5. That means it puts out 5 times as much power as is fed into it, making up the difference by extracting free energy from the vacuum…it is known as a Motionless Electromagnetic Generator.” 2/5 Earth Changes TV: “Joseph Newman invented a machine that puts out more energy than it takes in–an electromagnetic motor which runs ‘cool’…he implements Tesla’s mechanical unified field theory.” 8/30 Sciencedaily.com: “Penn State Researchers Investigate Alternative Diesel Fuel.”
The END is in SIGHT for the use of FOSSIL FUEL by 2008-2010, which will greatly aid in the cleanup of the environment. By 2010, offshore drilling will be banned worldwide. There will be major job changes for those involved in these industries and much adjustment necessary around the world. The STOCK MARKET and ECONOMY are sure to suffer during these dramatic changes. 3/11 Washington Times: “Some envision time when oil won’t be king: Alternative technologies have arrived…revolutionaries are at the gate. It may already be too late. The age of oil is coming to an end…due to low emission, fuel efficient mpg hybrid and fuel-cell vehicles currently, or soon to be, on the market…Widespread introduction of 80 mpg vehicles, from 2010, would have a major impact on world oil demand…’The Stone Age came to an end not for a lack of stones, and the oil age will end but not for a lack of oil,’ said Sheik Yamani, a former Saudi oil minister, a founder of OPEC in its present form, and now a private consultant in London. ‘Technology is the real enemy.'”
EARTH enters the GALACTIC or INTER-GALACTIC FEDERATION between 2003 and 2010, with frequent sightings of ships from other systems, landings, and exchange with those on other planets and in other systems.
PROOF of LIFE AFTER DEATH and SPIRIT COMMUNICATION with departed loved ones will become commonplace by 2005, along with a better understanding of reincarnation and spiritual development in general. January 1: In the U.S. the television program CROSSING OVER with medium JOHN EDWARD on the Sci fi Channel is gaining greater popularity and public acceptance each passing week.

Catch a show! 10/25 TVinsite.com, Cahners Business: “Psychic” plans WTC victims show: Studios USAs ‘Crossing Over with John Edward’ will attempt to communicate with victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in several episodes planned for the November sweeps for the syndicated and, perhaps, cable runs of the show. Steve Rosenberg, the studios domestic syndication president, anticipating concerns by viewers, says the shows ‘will be done tastefully…and won’t be exploitative,’ and notes that the idea grew after relatives of victims first approached Edward, not the other way around.”
