Power of Premonitions How Knowing the Future Can Shape Our Lives By Larry Dossey, M.D. There's nothing we want to know more than what's going to happen next. You can know. And in fact, you already do Open this book and find out how and why. Larry Dossey, the doctor -- and bestselling author -- who first demonstrated the healing effects of prayer, now offers an unprecedented look at the science of premonitions. A dream prompts a mother to remove her baby from his crib an hour before a chandelier falls and smashes it. 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 they're coming to the hospital, an obgyn gets a pain in his chest signaling they're ready to deliver. Visions of planes crashing into buildings causes a mother to cancel her family's Disney World trip scheduled for 9/11. 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 wasn't 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 it -- which I try to do in this book." 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.
