Dresden Pythia – Prophecies from August 1919 of catastrophic floods



Type of Spiritual Experience


Given what happened to Dresden, this has its own irony.

A description of the experience

Patterns of Prophecy – Alan Vaughan

A seeress who foreshadowed by several years Cayce's prophecies of Atlantis was a German medium known as the Dresden Pythia. In her prophecies of August 1919 published in 1920, she predicted

  • a great war between Japan and America, and
  • a new European world war.

Apparently her patriotism overshadowed her prophetic accuracy, for she predicted that Germany would be the victor over France and England. We may presume that postwar German resentment against the French and English also coloured this prophecy:   

Part of the French, Belgian, and German coasts will be flooded. All of England will sink into the sea during a terrible earthquake. . At the same time there will be a re-emergence of a great continent in the region of the Azores (the old Atlantis). There will be found traces of an ancient culture. Also at other places will new land emerge from the sea. A world destruction as happened to Atlantis 11,000 years      ago Instead of Atlantis, all of England and parts of the northwest European coasts will sink into the sea. And in contrast, the sunken Azores region, the island of Poseidonis, will again be raised from the sea.
