Nostradamus was a 16th century prophet and astrologer who supposedly foresaw the future of the world. His technique used was a form of meditation where at night, he would sit alone peering into his brass tripod that was centered with a flame.
From there, he would look into the future. He wrote his quatrains of the centuries but realizing what powerful knowledge these quatrains were, he mixed the centuries and quatrains up with only him knowing what was to become. He had hoped that man and woman would take heed and heart of the quatrains and change the world for the better.
To begin, to get a feel for Nostradamus’ writing skill and technique, the following are his first two quatrains that begins his Prophecies of the Centuries.
CENTURY 1….QUATRAIN 1
Sitting alone at night in secret study,
It rests solitary on the brass tripod.
A slight flame comes out of the emptiness,
Making successful that which would have been in vain.
CENTURY 1….QUATRAIN 2
The wand in the hand is placed in the middle of the legs of the tripod.
He sprinkles with water both the hem of the garment and it’s foot.
Fear, a voice runs trembling through the sleeves .
Divine splendor, the god sits nearby.
LURKING AND LOOKING ON THE GRASSY KNOLL
