Eager to know who those Presidents are?
President Washington knew of the birth, development and the future of the United States from the apparition he had seen of a mysterious woman who told him about United States and its journey in the global world. President Washington revealed this in 1778 to his close friend and confidant Anthony Sherman.
Not only was Sherman a close friend to Washington, he also fought alongside him and later wrote a book about his time with Washington and the psychic vision Washington shared with him. Washington told Sherman that during the darkest hours of the Revolutionary War at Valley Forge, when things were at their bleakest and seemed hopeless, a strange woman appeared in his personal tent.
Washington tried to ask the woman why she was there but she just kept staring at him, not answering. Finally she spoke and had so much to say. He felt it all as a vision. She told him “Son of the Republic, look and learn” and she began exposing the future of a new nation that would be born- the United States.
She showed him how this new nation would extend from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and become “heavily populated with villages and towns and cities springing up one after another until the whole land from the Atlantic to the Pacific was dotted with them.
When the visions concluded, Washington told Sherman; “I started from my seat, and felt that I had seen a vision wherein been shown me the birth, progress, and destiny of the United States”.
This visit and the visions she provided him gave President Washington the strength to hold his troops together and to keep fighting during a time when they were running out of food and disease was killing them at an alarming rate. He became fortified after that night and began training his soldiers with new tactics. They then went on to fight tirelessly and won the war in 1783, giving birth to The United States of America.
President Lincoln was perhaps the most active participant and follower of psychic visions. In psychic realms, he used to partake in diverse realms and see visions as well. It is well known that President Lincoln and his wife were very much believers of the psychic realm and that his assassination was foretold by one of Mary’s favorite psychics.
It all began after him and his wife Mary Todd Lincoln lost their son, Willie. While Lincoln was busy battling his own depression, as well as trying to win a war and successfully run a nation, his wife had nothing to distract her from her loss.
Mary was overcome with grief and wanted desperately to speak with her deceased son. At the time, spiritualism was very popular and she contacted several. She would hold séances in the White House, Lincoln attended some of them but not all. She turned to several mediums for help but her favorite was a man from England by the name of Charles Colchester.
He is the one that gave the presidential couple the most accurate information and allegedly warned Lincoln about his impending assassination at the theater.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
President Roosevelt took guidance from psychic readings regarding political matters before and during World War II. His psychic reading guidance was usually focused on International Relations.
During the bleakest moments of World War II, President Roosevelt was in serious need of divine intervention and/or a vision in order to survive the war. A famous clairvoyant named Jeane Dixon was called to the oval office in 1944 for both military and personal advice.
One of the questions President Roosevelt asked Dixon was when the war would end. She answered that it would be over sometime after mid 1945 and was correct. Unfortunately, Roosevelt died a few months before it ended.
Dixon is best known for her prediction about the election and death of John F. Kennedy. In 1956, she predicted that a Democrat would win the 1960 presidential election and that the elected Democrat would “be assassinated or die in office”. After this shocking prediction ended up being correct, other famous people were known to have consulted her, including other presidents.
Richard Nixon continued President Roosevelts tradition of consulting with Dixon when he became president. He used his personal secretary, Rose Mary Woods, as the middle-man between himself and Dixon, and jokingly referred to Dixon as ‘the soothsayer”.
He had Woods consult Dixon in 1971 and she told them that she had visions of a terrorist attack. This prompted Nixon to form a counterterrorism committee and a few months after, the Munich Massacre occurred.
Nixon can be heard referencing “the soothsayer” Jeane Dixon and the predictions she gave him in the Nixon White House tape recordings. He speaks about the terrorist attack vision she had and what would happen if they didn’t listen to her and something bad did happen. He then suggests that they need to have contingency plans for “hijacking, for kidnapping, for all sorts of things that can happen around
President Reagan and his wife, Nancy Reagan, were strong believers in psychic readings. His presidential term of 8 years was filled with political scandals and assassination attempts, and it is believed that President Reagan survived all the scandals with the help of a psychic named Joan Quigley, whom Nancy Reagan used to consult on a daily basis.
Evidence of this is the person who was a White House aide during President Reagan’s tenure. The aide says that every major decision and move was first consulted in “advance with a woman in San Francisco”.
Nancy Reagan tried to keep her consults with Quigley a secret by paying her via a third party. She was allegedly very embarrassed when news of their consultations came out and wrote in her 1989 book ‘My Turn’ “While astrology was a factor in determining Ronnie’s schedule, it was never the only one, and no political decision was ever based on it.”
Quigley however begged to differ and told The Los Angeles Times that she would “participate in a more intimate way than the publicly recognized insiders of greatest importance” She also wrote a book, titled ‘What Does Joan say?: My Seven Years As White House Astrologer to Nancy and Ronald Reagan’.
In it, she stated that she was in charge of timing all press conferences, most speeches, the State of the Union addresses, the takeoffs and landings of Air Force One, all his trips, as well as the times for debates with Walter Mondale and Jimmy Carter.
Nancy Reagan has since addressed her consults with the psychic and said that it was all with her husband and his safety in mind. She was quoted as saying, “Very few people can understand what it’s like to have your husband shot at and almost die, and then have him exposed all the time to enormous crowds, tens of thousands of people, any of whom might be a lunatic with a gun. I was doing everything I could think of to protect my husband and keep him alive.”
Thus, we see, from political matters to concerns regarding their own longevity, famous United States President’s never left a stone unturned. They were so fascinated and eager to know about their future, as well as the future of the country they ruled. Considering how much psychic readings have shaped the destination of a country, it’s no wonder so many of us have also benefited from consulting a trustworthy psychic!
