a. Introduction: _Conversations with Nostradamus_ by D.Cannon

This is a compilation and consolodation  of key information from the
books in the trilogy, _Conversations with Nostradamus_ by Dolores
Cannon. Volumes I and II are available from America West Publishers,
available from Ozark Mountain Publishers, P.O. Box 754, Huntsville,
AR  72740-0754. A good introduction to the overall project and
quatrains can be found in chapter 7 of I.

This first version of this FAQ paraphrases the first book in her
trilogy. Subsequent versions will incorporate material from the
books (which are almost entirely the verbatim, directly  channeled
material from the D.Cannon subjects) with some "overview

trilogy, not yet incorporated into this FAQ).

"c[x]-[y]" where 'c' stands for "Century", [x] is the book, and [y]

third books, Nostradmus went into a sort of "free association" mode
and in this case the page number in the trilogy alone is given. I

far more people are exposed to her works than would have otherwise

My Note to Enemies

Just as D. Cannon wrote that she fully expected to be accused of
to vicious attacks for this "exercise in conscience". I have
absolutely no use for closeminded, ignorant people jamming my mailbox

everyone else will feel free to ignore you.

consider themselves "skeptics" or of "scientific" background. Many
(such as myself) who promote the material to defend it. This is 
certainly true to a point, but I think the idea that skepticism
s at the core of science is somewhat erroneous.

The essence of science to me is skeptical *inquiry*, not mere
the inquiry is the enthusiastic, passionate, exploratory phase. There
cannot be true progress unless the two are in harmony. With only pure
enthusiasm, one becomes overly gullible and credulous. So to those of
you who challenge these predictions on scientific grounds, I
challenge you to explore them before you dismiss them, to at least
merely vacuous "knee jerk".

A famous quotation by Newton on his deathbed went along the lines,
"All my life I have felt as if I have been exploring a shore and
looking at a few pretty shells here and there, while the whole ocean
of truth lay undiscovered before me." Arrogant scientists may
think that science in its present state has largely conquered
Nostradamus' capabilities and predictions are (or will be)
bone-jarring evidence of our astonishing overall ignorance of the

b. Nostradamus and his "quatrains"

Nostradamus was a physician and prophet of the 16th century living in
France at the time of the Inquisition. He was recognized as a
brilliant physician who knew effective measures against the plague
victims of the time, a rarity in his profession. Nostradamus as a
visions collected over his lifetime. The quatrains are enveloped in
anagrams, different languages, etc.) that is virtually impossible to
untangle by a casual observer. Perhaps the greatest difficulty was
that he intentionally scrambled them in terms of their historical
order. For an excellent biography of Nostradamus see ch. 30 of II, 
"Research into Nostradamus' Life". Other glimpses of his life are
especially prevalent in II.

Quatrains I have found particularly evocative and masterful in
ntents and talents, are I p 140, cIII-13, microchips and
electricity, cIV-29, p 283, the dichotomy of technology vs.
on the deck of an aircraft carrier in a pivotal moment of WWWIII.

c. How did Nostradamus do it?

The D.Cannon books I-III contain a great deal of information on
Nostradamus' techniques, which came from a variety of sources. First,
enormous drive to develop it. His grandfather apparently passed him
books on witchcraft that allowed him to experiment with some rituals.
He also had access to "lost" manuscripts handed down outside of the
libraries of the time. He talks about guides  from the astral plane
and from other worlds who helped him. Some pointed him in the
emphasized they only enhanced his powers and were not the source of
them). One apparently bestowed on him a mirror during one of his
meditations. The mirror was especially important to his predictions.

Nostradamus also talked of using different crystals to focus on
various telepathic frequencies. Occasionally he refers to staring at
fire or water (such as in a bowl on a tripod) as a way of focusing
travels (apparently to some Moslem lands). He communicated with other
expert astrologers and mystical teachers. However it is possible that
means of throwing the Inquisition off track.

One of the most amazing possibilities explored in various places in
the D.Cannon books was that in a sort of "twist of time"  Nostradamus
contacted him. D.Cannon talks about this in the introduction of II.

Some have wondered about Nostradamus' healing capabilities. He talks
about a sort of holistic approach to health and reveals that he was
mportance of the "aura" of the person in determining the health of
the patient and criticized the practice of treating symptoms. He said
that a patient will find some other way to make themselves sick if
their critical mental attitude is  awry. He talked about cancer being
caused by deeply ingrained self-sabotaging thoughts. Nostradamus also
confirmed what many have speculated, that he was able to see future
approaches to treating the diseases he encountered (such as the

Dolores Cannon is a regression hypnotist, meaning that she uses
Nostradamus and helped interpret his quatrains. Through the student,
Nostradamus gave D.Cannon the task of translating the quatrains into
modern language free of the convoluted symbolism he wrapped them in
to avoid persecution under the Inquisition.

For the books, she used multiple subjects as channels, giving them a
first name pseudonym in the books. "Elena" was the first subject 
through whom contact was made; she was Nostradamus' student Dionysis
n the  past life. See the early chapters of I.

"I have never been in doubt that I am truly in contact with the

D. Cannon has written other books, _Keepers of the Garden_, _A
Conversation with a Spirit_, _A Soul Remembers Hiroshima_, and _Jesus
and the Essenes_.

e. "Simultaneous Time"

"Simultaneous time" is a difficult concept that refers to the illusion
of earthly time seen from higher spiritual planes. Between lives, the
of time. This state of consciousness is also achieved in
conducive to deep trance states. They can review not only past
lifetimes but future ones. But beyond this, it is as if they are
actually living them at the moment they describe them. So, for
example, the student of Nostradamus that D.Cannon   regressed would
be communicating directly from his own time to ours as a living

f. Ways to view Nostradamus and the prophecies

One can view the interpretations "channelled" by the D.Cannon subjects
as the actual pronouncements of a living Nostradamus during his time,
channelling of Nostradamus from the afterlife (although the
"Nostradamus" personality in the books insists this is definitely not
the case) or merely as a new interpretation of his quatrain from
"some source" (for a skeptic the "source" might be the "imagination
of subject's subconscious"). Either way the interpretations given by
D.Cannon are the most clear and striking of all available in the
literature, and the least permeated with confused speculation.

A scathing work of criticism and ridicule has been levelled at
Nostradamus by the famous "debunker", James Randi. Nevertheless,
buried in the unparalleled closemindedness and vitriol, Randi makes
are veiled in such obscure symbolism that they could mean anything,
and that interpretations are impossible in the absence of precision
n language. He has a very valid point.

But the works of D.Cannon give us a renewed, fresh perspective into
the matter. Not only are the past predictions laid bare, but so are
all the future ones. These books give a very *precise* vision of the
future, with a rigor bordering on the quality of even scientific
and absolute specificity at times). Perhaps the skeptics can argue
that the "fulfillment" of all his prior prophecies were merely due to
the creative interpretations or vivid imaginations of enthusiastic
explicit visions as (or "if", as the case may be) it unfolds before

ultimate measure of Nostradamus' true talents will be revealed
or lack thereof. And even if one ignores the Nostradamus aspect,

"falsifiable" predictions about our near future. Here is something

avert disaster through sensible use--but apathy is perhaps the most
negative and lethal contribution of all.

-- From the jacket of I, D.Cannon:

"Nostradamus believed, as I do, in the theory of `probable futures',
of nexus on the lines of time with many possible courses branching
off in all directions. He believed that if man had the knowledge he
could see which time line his future was headed down and reverse it
before it was too late."


What is my motivation for writing this "FAQ"? In short I find these
books  absolutely mesmerizing. They have opened up whole new
exhilarating research  avenues for me, and I have seen deeply

n desperate need of further editing, condensing, cross reference,

But more generally I believe Nostradamus stands above humanity as a
man of the highest calibre and integrity. His sheer *gift* for
events as unparalled in history. I want to help spread the brilliant
light of his prophecies into our tumultuous, critical era of "The

The elements that most disturbed me of Nostradamus' prophecies were
the predictions of an apocalypse for  civilization. Like most people,
current massive  communications infrastructures will be devastated?

The predictions that related the Antichrist's mad massacres for world
communications networks utterly stunned me. But it fit in with my
beliefs that we are forging these vast electronic networks with very
little concentrated thought, planning, or understanding, with no
concept of the vast power of the psychic energies we are tinkering
and that Murphy's law that "if anything can go wrong it will" could
apply on a cataclysmic global scale. But the most psyche-shattering
s referring to  *computers*, above all else has convinced me of the
absolutely cosmic significance of Nostradamus' prophecies and the
cut-to-the-bone relevance to *our* times, *now*. (See II, chapter 14:
"666: the Secret Number of the Beast").
