Psychic Sylvia Browne returned to the show to share her predictions for 2005 and beyond. "I think we're going to see more and more of these," she said of the recent quake and tsunami in Indonesia. "We're going to have these terrible eruptions everywhere-- we're in a polar tilt." She believes we only have about "80 more years left" before life as we know it ends on this planet. Then another planet such as Mercury or Venus, "swings into place" and the whole cycle of life starts anew there, she declared.
Yet she also predicted that 2005 will be a better year than 2004. The economy will rebound a bit in the beginning of the year and then pick up more steam by mid-year. Unemployment will go down, and in the stock market, the medical technology field will do particularly well, she said. Weather-wise she forecast that Florida and North Carolina will be hit hard in 2005.
Among her other comments & predictions:
Browne also gave short readings for callers regarding specific problems and issues in their lives.
First hour guest geologist Jim Berkland commented on the Sumatra quake & tsunami, which he called one of the greatest disasters in the history of mankind. He pointed out the connection between the moon and large quakes. The Sumatra quake occurred during a full moon as did the '64 Alaska quake, and the '89 'World Series' earthquake happened during the closest approach of the moon, he said. Berkland also discussed animals' abilities to sense a quake hours before it happens. They are able to sense "magnetic field changes," he believes, as it's been found they have the substance magnetite in their systems which they use for navigation.
We're happy to feature the first half of some of the responses we received, in our call for people to share their favorite or most memorable show moments from 2004. Read here.
