How Did Nostradamus Predict The Future?

A chemist and apothecary named Michel de Nostradame publishes an almanac titled The Prophecies. He writes more than a thousand four-line poetic verses called “quatrains,” verses that seem to predict the future. Michel began to have visions at a very early age. He would stare into a bowl with water and while staring at the water for some time he would “receive” visions of the future.

He lived in a very difficult era, at the time he began having visions, seeing into the future was considered witchcraft. What he did was, mask his visions in quatrains, four-line prose poems, in which he hid the future very carefully so that you wouldn’t really understand the quatrain until after the event had occurred. In the centuries after his death, Nostradamus has been credited with predicting everything from the Great  Chicago Fire of 1871 and the rise of Hitler in the 1930’s. what remains a mystery is the source of his visions and his ability to predict the future so accurately.

Even though there are numerous predictions of Nostradamus that you can find online, some of them are more interesting than others. How could Nostradamus predict the great Napoleon?

  • “PAU, NAY, LORON will be more of fire than of the blood,  To swim in praise, the great one to flee to the confluence.  He will refuse entry to the Piuses,  The depraved ones and the Durance will keep them imprisoned. “
  • Pau, Nay and Oloron are three towns in France, it is believed that the capitalization of the towns hints that something is hidden within the words. If you rearrange the words you get NAPAULON ROY, or Napoleon the King in French. Napoleon did not have a noble lineage and Napoleon imprisoned Popes Pius VI and VII.

Is the prediction of Napoleon just another lucky shot of the future by Nostradamus? Or did he in fact, like some suggest have the ability to- somehow, see things before they occurred. How would you explain his predictions?

  • He will come to travel to the corner of Luna,  where he will be captured and put in a strange land, The unripe fruits to be subject of great scandal,  great blame, to one, great praise.
  • He referred to the Astronauts traveling to the moon, Luna. He, the astronaut was captured on film. Nostradamus used the phrase “the Eagle” as an allusion to the U.S.A. Is it a coincidence that the American lunar landing craft happened to be named “the Eagle”?

Scientifically visions Nostradamus had could be explained by  zero-point energy, the zero-point field, a different dimension something that we today are very unfamiliar with; of course theories about the visions and predictions of Nostradamus are numerous, and even though some people actually attribute the moments Nostradamus predicted to pure luck or coincidence, some of the visions this ancient chemist had are truly mysterious and to obtain the true answer, me might have to change the way we look at things.

Researchers today believe that everything and everyone connects through the zero-point field, where a collection of electric charges from every thought, action, and event of the past, present and future is stored. The zero-point field could be viewed today as a huge cloud storage where everything can be found and seen. The concept of the zero-point field rests on the theory that the universe occupies more than just the three spatial dimensions of height, width, and depth. This evolving concept is known as “string theory.”

Dozens of ancient cultures have described in the past the existence of a “cosmic well”  of knowledge to which only certain individuals have access to. The Hindus refer to it as the “Akashic Record.” Scientists like Tesla have claimed that the universe is a magnificent place and that you could literally tap into the knowledge the universe has; according to Tesla, everything was connected, every thought, feeling and moment. So is it possible that Nostradamus, like Tesla, accessed this fountain of Knowledge and thanks to it, could envision moments that would come in later years?

Is it possible that prophets like Nostradamus had access to this immense “cloud service” thanks to which they could predict the future? Or can these visions be attributed to an extraterrestrial source?

To what can we attribute all of the prophecies that have marked mankind’s history? Is there an extraterrestrial influence to this? Or is there a zero-point field that stores all of the information and to which certain individuals have access to? Maybe we will never find out but one thing is sure, mankind will continue the search for knowledge and perhaps one day the answer to these mysteries will be revealed.
