Review: The Power of Premonitions: How Knowing the Future Can Shape Our Lives

Larry Dossey
I was so excited when I received a preview copy of Larry Dossey’s new book, due out this May. I have always been fascinated by premonitions. About a year ago, I was driving south on the North Dallas Tollway access road, taking a route I follow several times a week. I was stopped at a red light and found my mind wandering. When the light turned green, instead of racing forward as I usually do, I just sat there for a few seconds, staring at the green light. For some reason, although the light was green, something didn’t feel right. All of a sudden, a car raced across my path coming from the east and going west. Had I started forward immediately when the light turned green, this car would have hit me.

After the events of 9/11 I found myself so curious about all of the people who managed to avoid being part of this tragedy. There were so many stories about how some people, who would have been on one of those planes or at the Twin Towers or Pentagon that day, for one reason or another, were not there. In fact, Dr. Dossey noted in his book that the four planes that were taken over by terrorists that day were only 21% full.

Dr. Dossey’s book is divided into five sections. First, he discusses several amazing instances of premonitions, including one of his own. Next he examines several recent scientific experiments, which seem to indicate that perhaps we all possess this innate ability to see into the near future, even when we are not consciously aware of this. Then Dr. Dossey explores why premonitions exist, what purpose they serve and how they may be interpreted. In his fourth section, he discusses why and how to cultivate premonitions. Finally, he explores our ability to see and change the future, as well as the past. Dr. Dossey offers research evidence replicated all over the world, which has led many scientists to believe that premonitions are an established fact. Dr. Dossey concludes that “consciousness is fundamental, omnipresent, and eternal”.

I highly recommend this fascinating book. The research evidence is compelling and I found it greatly expanded my idea of what we are capable of. I also noticed that it helped me get more in touch with my own premonitions. Perhaps, like a muscle, exercising and understanding these abilities can help us to increase and fine-tune them. This can make life more exciting and wonderful.
