Would you want someone else reading your thoughts? Kind of a scary possibility, isn’t it.
The seven ancient prophesies that propel my Romancing the Guardians characters are of course fictional. I mean, I don’t have a direct line to the Creator. However, each mythical prophesy reflects my fears and hopes for humankind’s future. Today’s prophesy comes from book two, Decoding Michaela.
I Cáel am blessed with the ability to look into another’s thoughts, a gift bestowed upon me by Danu, the Great Mother. Glory to her name! Now, she has also allowed me to behold a time far in the future when my gift will be shared by many among the race of humankind, and it will not be the only power granted them.
Some will heal with a touch of the mind as our own healers do. Others will move objects with naught but a thought or leave their bodies and travel afar. Still others will communicate with animals or possess a special talent for growing food plants, while some may control armies or the world’s wealth.
These are only a few of the gifts Danu shall grant the far distant inhabitants of planet Earth. Until that time, I and my descendants are charged with guarding this prophesy, which is the Word of Danu.
Prepare for a far more frightening prophesy tomorrow. Meanwhile, what do you think? Will future generations employ powers of the mind currently untapped by most of us?
