Look at this silliness I just got in a mass emailing from Alain Nu. He's a nice guy, but when I read this kind of stuff it makes me ill.
As Promised: Alain Nus Predictions for the Year of 2011
I am predicting important and distinctive changes for the better in 2011.
Although its much harder to put predictions into words than one might think, especially because they come from a swirling soup of impressions and interpretations, I have come up with my own format for delivering to you in a useful way the random thoughts that have hit me during this first 7 days of the year.
Below are 11 predictions for 2011. Each impression and vision is put into words to the best of my abilities to be as specific as possible; but I have also added a thought to accompany the first- in the form of advice and guidance you can follow to manifest those concepts in your life (in italics). In fact, Im thinking this advice is so good I am going to try to follow it myself!
Whether the predictions manifest into reality is something we will all have to wait a year to find out. However, I hope you keep in touch with me throughout the year about what YOU see and sense, and let me know what your personal results are with the advice and guidance provided.
One might notice that I refrain from making mention of disasters like earthquakes, wild fires, sinking ships, plane crashes, or terrorist attacks. I feel it is of utmost importance that we should always be mentally aware and prepared to the best of our ability in case a difficult incident should arise, but to focus on such matters, or to invoke fear of it for no good reason is simply not my intention in making predictions.
During uncertain times, its all the more important to remain open minded and open spirited as we make our way through a New Year. I hope these 2011 predictions will inspire you, resonate with you or even just make you wonder
1) Medical science will make significant progress in its understanding of the physical detriments of emotional stress and how to live longer by reducing stress. Consider where you can diminish stress and distress from your surroundings that may invade your mental space.
2) Entrepreneurs and innovators inspired by the recession will surpass public expectation with common-sense approaches employed to create highly efficient machines, effective treatments for common illness, bringing resources to the needy and educating children. Embrace changes in life directions, priorities, and overall patterns as opportunities to build new strengths.
3)An American spacecraft returns from space and is discovered with clues of incomprehensible outside interference that further points to signs of intelligent extraterrestrial life or cosmic communication. Expect the unexpected, and there is nothing to be fearful of.
4)People will Facebook on their TV sets. A universal TV remote control will be sold that allows you to surf the web, watch any movie, download any video game, scroll photograph collections, and make video phone calls and text messages all through your TV set. Consider your own potential to integrate everything you do for a more streamlined lifestyle, and figure in ways to get out more often.
5)While the gulf will continue to be in trouble, scientists will discover compelling evidence of very promising biologically-based cleanup solutions for future use. Something unusual and unexpected, like a prehistoric fish, unknown organism or possible spacecraft, is found in the gulf during this time. More clusters of dying wildlife species are found throughout the year. Be a caretaker for your little part of the planet by reconsidering what you put in your soil, where the foods you eat are grown.
6)The world of spectator sports will realize its need to refocus on safety issues-- for its spectators. Keep your distance where projectiles are involved.
7)More and more highly publicized human interest stories will inspire people around the world to recognize the potential of good in all people. A new spirit of brother helping brother emerges. Steps are taken to reduce purposeless violence. Watch how fast good things come back to you by controlling how you process negativity, and engaging with a personal connection to your community.
8)The health risks of poor lifestyle choices will become impossible to deny, with more people, especially the very young, being plagued by entirely preventable illness. Meanwhile a not-so-healthy but first true weight loss pill will make its debut on the internet and late night TV. Dont ever underestimate the power of three healthy meals a day and a decent amount of rest for self-preservation.
9)For teens now bored with computer games and techno-music, a new hula hoop and neo-Elvis trend will surface among young hipsters. Communicate playfully; sometimes less IS more.
10)New levels of political decorum will need addressing after continued exposure on the internet. Wikileaks was just the beginning. New dimensions of internet journalism will create a new generation of leak-pluggers, contracted internet security experts whose purpose is to protect political and public figures by operating at the highest security level. Be mindful in your discourse with others by being responsible and honest within yourself.
11)2011 is the year of the Rabbit, but it will also prove to be the year of the Brain. The brain will be revealed, more than ever before, to truly have true world-changing potential. Quantum physics begins to be established more prominently as relevant to medicine, psychology, education, exercise, computing, art, and even entertainment. ESP will begin to be more accepted as a real phenomenon. Learn something new this year to really challenge your brain, and it will thank you in exciting and unexpected ways!!
Many of these eleven predictions may appear strange and somewhat fantastic, but truth is stranger than fiction. At any rate, I hope you found them to be entertaining, enjoyable, thought provoking, or even inspiring in some way towards finding some initial footing for the amazing and exciting New Year ahead of us. May all your actions and intentions this year be positive and strong!
