PREMONITIONS, NONLOCAL MIND, AND MEDICINE
Throughout recorded history, people have claimed the ability to sense the future, on occasion, through premonitions, instinct, intuition, hunches, or “gut feelings.” This ability has been dismissed as anecdotal, fanciful, and impossible by conventional science. Recently, however, this dialogue has changed. Computer-based laboratory experiments, now replicated worldwide, indicate an innate ability to sense future developments.
“Premonition” comes from words meaning “forewarning.” Biologists suggest that precognitive abilities may have become innate because they serve a survival function. This is consistent with surveys indicating that most premonitions warn individuals of threatening events, such as natural and manmade disasters and ominous health events.
Dr. Dossey will emphasize reports from patients and physicians of health-related premonitions, and will discuss why these experiences deserve our attention. He will show why premonitions should be considered a form of preventive medicine. Dr. Dossey will discuss the empirical research documenting our innate premonition sense, how to cultivate and enhance this ability, and its impact on our lives.
A new image of consciousness will be presented: a nonlocal image, in which consciousness manifests infinitely in space and time, with stunning implications for the survival of bodily death.
