This article provides a spiritual perspective on the life of the famous seer Nostradamus. Spiritual research has shown that the spiritual purpose of his life was to overcome his attachment to supernatural powers that he had gained through many lifetimes of spiritual practice. Due to a desire for fame and an intense fascination for his supernatural powers, he lost track of the spiritual purpose of his life on Earth.
Michel de Nostredame (1503 – 66), popularly known as Nostradamus, was one of the world’s most famous seers. His prophecies, 500 years into his future and into our current times have captivated the whole world. The Spiritual Science Research Foundation (SSRF) conducted spiritual research on the spiritual life of Nostradamus that contributed to his extraordinary gift. The contents of this article have been obtained through the medium of an advanced sixth sense (ESP).
In all cases where a person has psychic abilities or is able to look into the future, it is generally a gift due to past-birth spiritual practice. How we use this gift can influence our spiritual journey and the region we go to after death.
Spiritual research on the reasons for Nostradamus’ gift
Before his life on Earth, he had done spiritual practice in the subtle region of Heaven (Swargaloka). Because of this spiritual practice, Nostradamus obtained two types of supernatural powers:
1. Supernatural power of vision i.e. he could see visions of what was to happen in the future.
2. Supernatural power of speech i.e. he could verbalise what was seen or heard through the subtle and it would come true.
Spiritual research on the reason for Nostradamus’ birth
People who have supernatural powers generally tend to use them for worldly reasons either for self or for society. According to Spiritual science, use of supernatural powers to orchestrate any fulfilment of worldly desires for people or to gain popularity can have negative effects on the person’s spiritual growth. It is for this reason that people who have supernatural powers are advised to use their powers for their further spiritual practice towards God-realisation and only under the guidance of a spiritually evolved guide (Guru). A Guru directs the student to utilise his spiritual powers towards realising God.
Nostradamus had to be born on Earth to rid himself of the sway/hold that his supernatural powers had over him. His spiritual goal was to obtain guidance about practicing Spirituality to continue his onward spiritual journey into the further positive regions.
Spiritual research on the life of Nostradamus from a spiritual perspective
Through the medium of his supernatural powers, Nostradamus made many accurate predictions. Many times, he would clearly hear or see the future through the medium of sound or visions. In the beginning of his career, three divine beings from the higher subtle regions would guide him. They did this through the medium of Nostradamus’ supernatural power of vision.
Over the years, Nostradamus became over ambitious and invested a lot of time in his gift of seeing the future. He would receive prior intimation of many events through his divine supernatural powers. As he would disclose what he saw, people would come to know of future perils and take measures to protect themselves against them. This infuriated the ghosts, as their plans to create problems for people would be foiled.
Spiritual research indicates that his personal life was steeped in internal sorrow, which the people around him may not have been aware of. In the beginning, by virtue of his supernatural power of vision, Nostradamus would receive knowledge through visions/scenes. Over time, he got carried away with his fame and the accolades of people.
This defect in his personality weakened him spiritually. Nostradamus used his wilful action (free will) to get further entrenched in his fascination for supernatural powers and his fame. As a result, he deprived himself of further spiritual practice on Earth. The effect of ghosts (demons, devils, negative energies etc.) only made matters worse. Slowly the stores of his spiritual practice from his previous lifetimes were depleted. In short, instead of using his time on Earth to do spiritual practice and attain a higher positive region, he regressed from the subtle region of Heaven to the subtle region of the Nether world after his life on Earth.
