More About Dave
In 1965 at the age of sixteen, I worked in a garage; in part, my duties consisted of pumping petrol in to cars and taking payment for it. Like today there was a promotional gimmick running, for every gallon of petrol you bought you received a card, rub off the ink strip and you would discover fruit symbols, get three of a kind and you won a small amount of money, equivalent to £10 or so today. I discovered that I knew which cards where the winning cards, I just knew. This caused, to say the least consternation within the promotional company; surely, I had insider knowledge? In addition, I was threatened with all kinds of dire consequences if I did not come clean. They didn’t believe me that I just knew and gave me 200 of the cards and I in less than a minute I picked out all the winning cards. I got the third degree but the truth was I was not part of some elaborate scam, I had no insider knowledge and was not cheating. I was simply a sixteen year old boy who just knew. To me it was normal, of course I could tell which were the winning cards, it was obvious to me and I thought it must be obvious to everyone, if they looked at them closely? Apparently not, this was my first realisation that what I saw, felt and heard was not what everyone else was seeing, feeling or hearing.
I didn’t then dress in long robe and pointy hat, a wand on one hand and a book of spells in the other. What people who are not physic do not understand about people who are is that we are just like everyone else, our abilities are not strange or weird to them us ,they are perfectly normal and ordinary. The fact that I can tell someone (when I am in the correct frame of mind and they are too) exactly and in great detail what is about to happen to them in the near future seems to me obvious and it took me a long time to realise that it wasn’t obvious to others. Sometimes they did not welcome it seeing it as intrusion and would say things like “Get out of my head” and so like many others I kept quiet , did not advertise my abilities and got on with my life.
In retrospect, I can see that I have led a life following the esoteric and the spiritual, the study of human behaviour became central to my lifestyle and education.
After many years of study I am quite convinced that everyone has physic abilities but with most of us it is switched off. Its not just humans who have this ability, your dog will know your arrival is imminent long before he can hear, see or smell you. Your dog can pick up on the fact that you are ill long before your doctor can. It is no coincidence that whilst the Tsunami of Christmas 2004 took many lives very few wild animals died, they knew it was coming and left the area before the waves hit.
Everyone has heard of Sigmund Freud , the founder of psychoanalytical school of psychiatry According to popular belief he defined sexual desire as the primal motivation energy for all human life. We all know this don’t we? In fact Freud thought no such thing but he let people think it because he knew our real motivation and power lay was in the occult . Better people to believe that it is sex rather than the truth. I take the following from a great book written by a great man, a contemporary of Freud and his colleague for some time Professor Carl Jung “The devaluation of the psyche and other resistances to psychological enlightenment are based on fear. These fears are found not only amongst persons who are frightened by the picture that Freud painted, they troubled Freud himself. He confessed to me that it was necessary to make a dogma of his sexual theory because it was the sole bulwark of reason against a possible outburst of occultism. In other words Freud was expressing his conviction that the unconscious still harboured many things that might lend themselves to occult interpretations”( The Undiscovered Self Jung . Routledge 1958).
The State does like people who claim to have a view of life that contradicts its view of the order of things. Of course they don’t , society is very complex and it takes a great deal of order to keep things running. The State requires of the individual to give up their individualism and cooperate with the mass for the sake of order. The State always presents a very clear idea of what the world is and the citizens place within in, presently the buzz phrase is “The big society”. Order is maintained by the maintenance of status quo .Everyone knows what they are, what is expected of them and the roll they have to play. In return mass man is kept safe, his children fed and the enemy kept from the door. They do not like people who challenge the order of things, it frightens them and will berate anyone who challenges their view of what it
is to be human.
During WW2 medium Helen Duncan saw visions of dead seamen, on their caps were was written the words HMS Braham, Unfortunately for Helen the sinking of this ship was secret and the government wanted to know how she knew. She was accused of being a spy and sent to jail for using the Witchcraft Act to prosecute her.
Even today in the 21st century psychics are not free of criticism and rightly so, we should be open to question and research .I have no answers to give critics except that I have an open mind, I have no axe to grind nor point to prove. It always seems odd to me that when we do receive criticism in the media it is never from people who have consulted a psychic but rather from those who never had and never will. It seems they complain on your behalf yet I am pretty sure that no one has asked to do so. Why do media types get so hot under collar about the potential that the human psyche possesses ? “The common psychiatric experience , that the devaluation of the psyche and other resistances to psychological enlightenment are based in large measure on fear and panic ,fear of the discoveries that might be made in the realm of the unconscious” (The Undiscovered Self p 35).When astronomer Galileo in 1610 supported the theory that , the earth far from being the centre of the universe it was in fact a satellite of the sun, he was condemned, accused of heresy and spent the rest of his life under house arrest. The State, the elite, those that hold the power will punish anyone who suggests that their positions are held quite arbitrarily and the status quo is in fact held together by an illusion. That indeed the old adage that “Everything you think you know is wrong” holds true.
Members of the establishment with a very high degree of communications skills will periodically try to make anyone with extra sensory qualities seem to be either fraudsters feeding upon the gullible or, at best well meaning but deranged individuals.People like Darren Brown and Stephen Fry are masters of the art of mass communication but why do they do it? Have they been tricked and defrauded themselves or do they think that the great British public are too stupid and naive to fight their own battles and that they must step in to defend the poor deluded fools even when no one has asked them too? it seems unlikely to me. I am not at all sure what their motivation is, why do we make them so angry? Both of them are very successful , both of them are wealthy, one openly manipulates and tricks the public
for a living and the others sells us car insurance. Yet, like some Alice though the looking glass world they accuse psychics of making money in a less than honest manner. I have know many psychics and mediums , not one of them has ever had any money, most of get by on a very meagre income. Unlike the two gentlemen above I have never sought or gained either wealth or fame.
There is much more to us all that than anyone can possibly imagine. Our conscious mind, the one we use in all our waking hours is but the peak of a very large mountain. Our conscious selves are but a weak reflection of who we are and often the reflection is reversed and distorted .Separating the conscious from the unconscious is a membrane and normally the unconscious is completely unknown to the conscious .Occasionally people can experience an epiphany, an awakening, sometimes it can be seen as a religious experience but religious or not it is always enlightening. These moments are caused by , for reason or another the conscious mind becoming aware the unconscious if even for a moment.
It happened to both my parents both quite ordinary people, my mother saw her body on the operating table and wondered why they were bothering .My father having slipped into coma was revived and told me that he had seen his future and was no longer afraid of death. He passed over very shortly after that revelation. These are common place experiences, yet we deny them, a scientist may tell you out of body and other paranormal experiences are caused by dwindling oxygen to the brain or some other scientifically based reason. I am always surprised by peoples fear of the unknown, there is nothing to be frightened of .
