It is hard to pinpoint the exact time and documented experiences of the first known psychic, prophet, or seers. In Greek mythology, there are stories of Pythia, who was a priestess that served Apollo. She was a powerful woman in a male dominated world who had the power of prophecy. This would lead us to believe that psychic ability goes back to ancient times. Historically, Nostradamus comes up frequently when researching psychics from the past.
Nostradamus is still quite a controversial figure. In light of this and the complexity of his predictions, we will only touch lightly on some facts and events of his life. Critics believe that his infamous quatrains have been grossly misinterpreted, while others believe he is the greatest prophet/psychic of all time. After the attacks of September 11, 2001, Nostradamus was the most highly searched term on Google’s website. This is evidence of the effect his prophecies still hold today. In 1550, Nostradamus wrote his first almanac, and it was considered highly successful. He continued to write almanacs until the time of his passing in 1566 at the age of sixty-two.
Even today, Nostradamus is the subject of websites, popular cultures, and blogs on the subject. His quatrains and bold predictions of what was to come in the centuries beyond his passing have always amazed and intrigued believers and critics alike. As research and scientific studies continue on these prophecies, he will continue to live on.
Nostradamus was remarkably gifted, and at a whole other level of intelligence. He is said to have prophesized the coming of Hitler and Napoleon, the French Revolution, the great fire of London of 1666, Louis Pasteur, WWII and new age weapons, planes, the death of the Kennedy’s, and much more. He was also a highly regarded doctor, and treated plague victims with pills he made from rose petals.
Nostradamus on the Assassination of President Kennedy
I took a great deal of time and went through many of the quatrains of Nostradamus over the last few days and found that there were far too confusing for me to make any sense of them or offer any intelligent response to what they mean. I have read through his prophecies before and always found it very difficult and admire those who can break it down into terms that we can understand.
The following is the only one that made any sense to me.
In a prophecy indexed 1 Q26, Nostradamus in 1555 wrote:
The great man will be struck down in the day by a thunderbolt,
The evil deed predicted by the bearer of a petition
According to the prediction another falls at night time.
Conflict in Reims, London, and pestilence in Tuscany.
President John Kennedy was shot shortly after twelve noon 45 years ago in Dallas Texas, on 22 November 1963. In Nostradamus day guns had not been invented so it makes sense that he would see it as a thunderbolt.
Senator Robert Kennedy was assassinated a few minutes after 1 A.M., moments after his victory speech in the 1968 presidential primary. Jeane Dixon, one of the foremost prophets of modern times, earned international notoriety for predicting JFK’s assassination as early as 1956. The last month before he was killed she repeatedly tried to get the message to him to be careful that he was about to be assassinated. I believe the bearer of the petition was Ms. Dixon. Nostradamus may have chronicled her unsuccessful attempt to forewarn the president, and later, Senator Kennedy, who was her friend. The last line dates RFK’s murder through events occurring around that time: student riots in France and London during 1968-9, (Reims is a another term used for France) and the 1966 Florence flood, when authorities feared that pestilence in Tuscany would follow the disaster.
I would like to hear your thoughts and opinions on this great man. This also gives you a chance to study and learn more about famous prophecies.
Nostradamus has been credited with predicting these historic events.
