More than a dozen people are no-shows for choir practice for the first time ever at the moment their church explodes. Before his patients ever call to say theyre coming to the hospital, an ob-gyn gets a pain in his chest signaling theyre ready to deliver. Are these coincidences, or is something happening that we need to pay attention to?This is the question Dr. Larry Dossey asked himself during his first year of medical practice. He had never had any sense of knowing the future when he experienced a week of premonitions about patients, all of which came true. As a scientist and medical doctor he was taught that knowing the future wasnt possible. He was scared to talk about his premonitions because if he dared believe anything he was experiencing was possible - that the future could be known before it happened - then his entire education and worldview would be turned on its head. But as suddenly as the premonitions started, they stopped: It was as if the universe, having delivered a message, writes Dossey in the introduction, hung up the phone. It was now my job to make sense of...More than an examination of case studies, The Power of Premonitions reveals the world of science and research that proves the human capacity for knowing the future. Experiments consistently show that human beings are as wired to know whats coming next as we are to see, feel, hear, and think. Dossey uses cutting-edge science to prove the value of what has long been considered the provenance of mystic charlatans and to show listeners how they can cultivate their natural abilities. This is anaudiobook for the skeptical mind, but its also for the believers heart - because its author possesses the rare gift of having both.
