Psychic Predictions for 2015
 
Prediction for 2015: World Disaster Event 2 of 3

https://jodie1.wordpress.com/tag/predictions-for-2015/

Mr. Billion 14 November 2014 12:59 PM

She had predictions for this year, too:

Quote:

I see severe weather still hitting Central United States so hard that many will wonder if Nebraska still exists.
This is her winter prediction. Did that happen?

Searching online for "disaster nebraska" turns up this:

Quote:

President Declares Disaster for Nebraska

Release date:
June 17, 2014
Her predictions for a specific event in August 2015 are password-protected currently, which is a little odd. Maybe she'll release them to the public in September.

Ali Infree 04 December 2014 05:32 PM

She says that her predictions may be limited because "I see only what I look at." Hmmm. What do other people see when they look?
Anyhow, I guess I would need to care about what she "sees" when she looks.:rolleyes:

Many can play at that game:

I predict:

- there will be a celebrity that dies well before his/her time (name withheld to prevent said celebrity from panicking).
- two more celebrities will die within a short time afterwards, aged appropriately, but will become a "death in threes" talking point
- partisan politics will be the MO for many of the political issues involving democratic governments
- conflict around the world will continue, and the US and Russia will see very different ways of resolving it
- poverty will not disappear this year
- "abundance of caution" will become the catch phrase to confine any traveller returning to North America from a destination not found in a Christmas post card
- "abundance of caution" will be one of the expressions deemed overused and nominated for deletion by Lake Superior University
- emotions, rather than reason, will be the driving force in many, if not all, political/business decision

And I bet a dollar that an athlete will cry upon losing their chance at a championship (athlete's name password protected to protect their privacy and the name of the team that will blow the championship)

Sound good?

Cervus 04 December 2014 05:56 PM

You have to throw in modifiers like "potentially" and "possible" in order to give you an excuse when you turn out to be wrong. Never make absolute declarations. Claim that you see the "possibility" of something vaguely ominous happening, or that the messengers are showing you the potential outcome of world events if we stay on our current path.

Depends:

1) Canadian or US dollar?
2) Which do you expect will be worth more at the time the bet becomes due?

If this is a serious question (I'm not psychic) there is meaning to that.

Method 1 of precognition: The person gets premonitions or feelings about events like we get dreams, without conscious thought. Think Spidey-Sense, Spider-Man (or Peter Parker) gets a feeling that something is wrong out of the blue.

Method 2 of precognition: The person gets feelings or ideas about events when they concentrate on that event. Think Dead Zone, where you replace touching with thinking.

She is claiming that she uses method 2 instead of method 1. Probably so that she doesn't get called out for not saying anything about major events, like the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland that shut down air travel for Europe for a week. If she claimed method 1, there would be questions about why she didn't "see" such a big event. With method 2, she just says, "I only see what I look at."

Ali Infree 04 December 2014 07:50 PM

Not a serious question, but thank you for the reply. I was just taken with the notion of seeing what you look at for existential reasons.

Predictions:

Cubs will not win the World Series, again.
Browns will not win the SuperBowl.
A very old Hollywood star, now largely forgotten, will die.
A once promising young pop celebrity will go into rehab.
There will be a terrible (password protected) in (password protected).
Extremism will result in deaths and injuries.

Predictions:

New Year 2015 will prove all serious psychic predictions for 2014 wrong, apart from those that were too non-specific to be proven right or wrong.

New Year 2016 will do the same for all predictions for 2015, including the one above.

Not this cowboy. I'm not waffling on my predictions. That is how firm I believe in them. :D

Skeptic 05 December 2014 09:33 PM

I predict that if there is any election in Ireland during the year, a photo of nuns going to vote will appear in the newspapers.

I'm serious. It happens every time. Watch this space.

Richard W 05 December 2014 09:35 PM

So... does Nebraska still exist? Did it ever exist, for that matter?

me, no really 05 December 2014 11:11 PM

I think Nebraska only exists on TV as a place that people leave to move to New York/Washington/LA/San Francisco/Boston/Chicago

Mr. Billion 21 December 2014 07:36 AM

We have a friend of the family who claims to live in Nebraska, but I've only ever actually seen him in Kansas and Washington, D.C., so I have my suspicions.

thorny locust 21 December 2014 04:29 PM

Hey, I've been to Nebraska! And my mother grew up there!

-- admittedly, both of those things were some time ago. I can't personally attest to its continued existence.

(Did you know, by the way, that around the 1920's Omaha, Nebraska was a hotbed of Jewish radical leftists? -- for all I know, it still is.)

Lainie 21 December 2014 04:43 PM

I did not know that, but I am intrigued and would love to learn more.

thorny locust 21 December 2014 06:07 PM

My knowledge is from family history, mostly. I'll try to find you some applicable links.

Singing in the Drizzle 22 December 2014 03:15 AM

I had a dream back in June about getting this new job and I was sick the whole first week of work. Damn, if did not come true this last week, started work as a direct employee and sick all week and still trying to get over it.

So does that count as precognition.

ETA: I have things like this happen from time to time. For example all of a sudden having a need to take my grandparents to play bingo and wining the $5K that I needed to get started in vocational school that I wanted to attend. The space shuttle Challenger explosion about a month before it happen. And there are other things like that though out my life. I just wish I knew the real ones from the faults ones.

That would be great, thank you for looking.

Cool. I'm interested, too.

This perhaps sums up the author's stance as far as predictions are concerned.

There is no way anyone will win an argument with her if she feels that she is being criticized or judged anytime someone calls her out on a wrong prediction. Far be it for us to say that the prediction is wrong, because everything is subjective.

thorny locust 22 December 2014 04:48 PM

ETA: as we seem to at least in default mode now be on another page: this is in response to Lainie and Mr. Billion.

Hmmm. I'm actually having trouble finding anything in depth online, although there are plenty of brief references:

http://jfsomaha.com/our-history/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jews_an...maha,_Nebraska
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omaha_J...mmunity_Center

This museum:
http://www.nebraskajhs.com/index.php
probably does have useful stuff but you might need to go there in person, or at least join, to get at it.

This paper on the Workmen's Circle, which was highly active in Omaha as well as elsewhere, may have something useful but it doesn't seem to display properly for me:
http://www.nebraskahistory.org/publi...mensCircle.pdf

--If you research this much, you're going to keep tripping over Tillie Olsen. I'd strongly recommend Panthea Reid's biography, which goes a long way towards clarifying Olsen's actual life; much of the other information commonly given about her just isn't so. (There are also considerable references in the early part of this book to the progressive Jewish community in Omaha.)

You've got potential. Forget just being psychic, add some dogma to your prediction and conviction (required), and an iconic party beverage of your choice (optional), and you're ready to start your own cult.

I think it's called 'flyover country'. I am amazed, simply amazed at all of your psychic abilities!

Let me try! Thinking....I'm getting something! It's.....Next year's Kentucky Derby will be won by a horse! President Obama will give a speech around Jan 20th! Pope Francis will preach Mass at the Vatican! Somewhere a computer system will be hacked!

Wow, this is easy!

thorny locust 26 December 2014 03:32 PM

Somewhere in the USA, some time during the next year, there will be a major storm that will cause travel problems, power outages, and at least one death.

In some places in the world, farmers will have crop losses due to drought. In other places in the world, farmers will have crop losses due to too much rain. (It is possible that at different times during the same year some farmers may have crop losses due to both reasons.)

Members of one political party will accuse members of an opposition party of behaving in a nefarious fashion for doing the same thing that they excused, or even praised, members of their own party for doing.

At least one cat will do something cute that will get posted on the internet.

There will be multiple days on which I do not succeed in getting everything done that's on that days to-do list. This problem, while it is in part caused by putting more things on any given day's list than can possibly be done in one day, will be aggravated by spending time posting on snopes.

TripleAAA 13 January 2015 05:59 PM

I am also predicting cold winters for New England and the Great Lakes. But not psychically. I'm just using common sense.

Wait, I'm seeing something....Yes, I too see that gas prices will eventually rise (duh) and that Big Pharma will continue taking over the medical industry (duh again)

I told you I was psychic.

I couldn't quite make out the ballot papers. Was that Nun for or against?

Saitaina 31 May 2015 10:18 AM

Reading this made me want to stab myself in the face. I hate psychics with a passion (probably more then James Randi and Penn Jillette) and their whole smokey veil/vague answers thing drives me up the wall.

If you're really psychic, and you REALLY see something, just say it, in plain english, not 'something will happen vaguely over there".

barbrainey 19 June 2015 02:02 AM

I recall a prediction one psychic made for 1985. It said that a family of Bigfoot creatures would be discovered living off welfare!

Geez! That was really dumb!

Psychic Predictions for 2015
 
Well, this sounds interesting yet the psychic predictions I have read are a bit disturbing. Anyway, I just said to myself , it is only some sort of a forecast like a guess of what will happen in the future. I think, we just have to treat it as our guide especially if it is not really good. We do not have to believe it at all:)
