Predicting events in the war
Type of Spiritual Experience
Dr Shafica Karagulla, born in the Lebanon but whose research took her to the USA and the UK, was a neuro-psychiatrist who spent eight years researching ordinary people who appeared to have extraordinary abilities. She started off being a skeptic as most scientists are [including me] but over time the evidence seemed overwhelming and she set up a research project to find out more. What brought her into the area was a book about Edgar Cayce, what kept her going was an open mind and an insatiable curiosity. Where she is remarkable is that she had no experiences of her own to confirm her eventual conclusions, but like all the very best scientists forgot her own life and concentrated on the observations and evidence.
Her research subjects were carefully chosen. She rejected all those who claimed they had these abilities but instead by a laborious process of enquiry and referral managed to find those who carried on normal professions and who never talked about their abilities but just used them.
A description of the experience
Breakthrough to Creativity – Dr Shafica Karagulla
'Lucia', a world famous newspaaper reporter and commentator, gave me some fascinating insights into her spectacular reporting during the second world war. Her analysis of the war situation and her predictions of next moves during the war won her prizes in the radio reporting field. What she had
to say was eagerly scanned and duly noted by leaders in many countries as they made their decisions.
I was finally able to get her to explain to me how she did it. When she sat down to write a news analysis she began to "see pictures." These were mental images that came in flashes and seemed to be directly connected with whatever she was writing. These pictures gave her insights and impressions which she came to trust as being true and correct.
She wrote many outstanding articles and reports analysing the Nazi movements in Europe and correctly indicating future moves. She told me that when Hitler was about to move into Greece but before anyone knew of his intentions she was writing an article on the current news of his movements. She had a flash of the map of Europe with the Nazi flag flying over Greece. With a
kind of instant clear perception she was sure that the next Nazi move would be into Greece. She proceeded to make this prediction in her article and it proved to be entirely right.
She did not know how or why these impressions came to her, but she came to trust and rely on the indications she received. Others also relied on her brilliant reporting without having the faintest idea how she did it !
Early in the war she was seized and imprisoned in Europe and condemned to death. Through her HSP ability she was able to seek help and managed to escape. She also recounted numerous experiences of precognition relating to events in her own life. She escaped to the United States during the course of the war and did some of her most effective news reporting in this country. She has become an American citizen and continues her journalistic carreer with programs on radio and TV. She is also a well known lecturer. However she never mentions her abilities.
