Famous clairvoyants: Nostradamus

Nostradamus is the Latinized name for Michel de Nostredame. Nostradamus was born on December 14th 1503 in Saint-Remy-de-Provence. He was a pharmacist and doctor, and he was famous already in his lifetime due to his clairvoyance and the prophecies he wrote. He grew up at his great-grandfather’s and later at his aunt’s and started studying the so-called “Trivium”, which consisted of grammar, rhetoric and logics. However, he had to quit after one year because of the plague. Nostradamus became a pharmacist and wanted to study medicine later in Montpellier. However, he was not admitted since he had been a pharmacist and hence “manual labourer”. It is unknown whether he managed to complete studying medicine anywhere else.

The clairvoyant and visionary Nostradamus was ordered to come to the court of inquisition already in 1538. Spiritual healers, clairvoyants and visionaries were then pursued strongly by representatives of the church. Nostradamus managed to flee and traveled different countries before returning to France in 1541. After he married his second wife, the wealthy widow Anne Ponsarde, Nostradamus published his first prophecies as a clairvoyant in 1550. A few years later, he published “Les Propheties de M. Michel Nostradamus”, consisting of three times hundred and one time 53 stanzas of quatrains.

After a meeting with the French king Henry II. and his wife Katharina, he was appointed the king’s personal physician in 1564. Since Nostradamus was a clairvoyant, it can be assumed that he also worked as a spiritual healer.

This quatrain of his is very famous:

The young lion will overcome the old one
On the field of battle in single combat:
He will put out his eyes in a cage of gold:
Two fleets one, then to die a cruel death.

This prophecy is often connected to the death of Henry II.

Nostradamus died on July 2nd 1566 in Salon-de-Provence.
