A psychic who has been an Egyptian queen in a past life has predicted an action packed 2019, with the arrival of a Royal baby girl, Taylor Swift getting engaged and Philip Hammond launching a possible leadership bid.
Sensing spirits and seeing things before they happen since childhood, usually through visionary dreams, Nicolas Aujula, 33, says he has successfully predicted major events ranging from the Syrian conflict to the winner of The Apprentice.
Also working as a past life regression therapist, hypnotherapist and psychic astrologer, south Londoner Nicolas has made a number of predictions for the New Year, saying:
“A lot of people have been asking me if Theresa May will stay in power. I don’t follow politics very closely myself, but one name that keeps coming to me is Philip Hammond.”
“I don’t know if he’ll come to power himself or just try to, but he’s definitely one to keep an eye on.”
Explaining that it is hard to pinpoint exact dates for his astonishing visions, Nicolas admits that, sometimes, it is only in hindsight that he can interpret what they meant.
“I’ll say these predictions are for 2019 and beyond, as some may not necessarily happen next year, but perhaps further in the future.”
“The interpretation is just as important as the vision itself. Sometimes, words or images will come to me and I won’t be able to make sense of them until something has happened that makes me look back and realise what I was told,” added Nicolas.
One of the first news stories sure to dominate headlines in 2019 is Brexit, with the UK intending to leave the European Union in March 2019.
Sure enough, Nicolas has seen visions in his dreams that he believes relates to this.
“With things as huge as Brexit, it’s difficult as you cannot switch off that logical side of your brain.
But, I’m not seeing the end result as being positive, especially economically. I’ve been seeing a lot of visions of property crashes, so I think that could be linked.”
Aside from politics, the subject matter of Nicolas’ visions is hugely varied, with him predicting that Sunderland football club will move up a league, that London cabbies will go on strike and that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s first child, due in Spring 2019, will be a girl.
He has also had dreams that he believes are related to earthquakes happening around Cuba and China, singer Taylor Swift announcing her engagement, actress Nicole Kidman falling pregnant or having a baby, and of an issue with crops that causes food prices to skyrocket.
But some of his visions are too vague or bizarre for him to know straight away exactly what they mean.
“I’ve been getting the word ‘influenza’ through a lot, in relation to livestock, so it could be that there is some sort of outbreak that affects the meat industry,” he said.
“I’ve also had a very specific vision of a British person with artificial limbs breaking a world record, and another of a Bakerloo line Tube being stuck in a tunnel for hours. It didn’t feel like it was the result of a crash, or anything, and everyone was okay, thankfully.
One of the most bizarre visions I’ve had in a dream is of the London Mayor Sadiq Khan rowing down the Thames. It feels like it’s part of a sporting or charity event.
I’ve had a couple of showbiz ones too. I got the idea of Madonna doing some charity work and facing criticism for it, though I’m not sure why, and I also saw a new, younger man in her life. I was very drawn to the name Justin, too, in relation to a showbiz scandal – though I don’t know which famous Justin it relates to.”
Nicolas first noticed his mystic gift when he was a child and would often sense his father, who tragically died when he was tiny, nearby.
But he was 17 before he realized just how powerful his psychic abilities were, following an experience while he was in a deep, trance-like meditative state.
“I was meditating when I had this almost out-of-body experience, and I was able to see several of my past lives. I’d never even thought about them before, and I still can’t explain it to this day. There’s no logic to it, but I knew what I was seeing was me in a previous life. I saw myself as a man, woman, and even an animal.”
At the time, Nicolas had been set to go to university once he had completed his A Levels in history and economics, but his supernatural experience inspired him to change path and train as a past life regression therapist.
“I’ve had thousands of past lives. I’ve been an Egyptian queen, a maid, a teacher in the French revolution, a deer, a lion and even lived in another universe.
Some of the lives definitely help explain things about who I am today. For example, I used to suffer with throat pain, and then I saw that, in a past life, I was a Pagan, persecuted for my beliefs – so silenced, for using my voice.”
Also trained in curative hypnotherapy, Nicolas has helped numerous people to connect with their own past lives, which he says has even led to some of them healing ailments such as migraines and asthma.
Having successfully predicted things which have happened in his personal life and the wider world, he explained how his visions most commonly come to him in dreams, saying:
“They’ll come very spontaneously. I have to make sure I’m relaxed and open-minded enough to receive them.
The most significant thing I’ve predicted to date is the Syrian conflict. Around three years before it all happened, I had a dream that I was there.”
“I know it was Syria because I saw the country name, but I didn’t know what was going on. I felt a sense of unease, like trouble was looming, and breathlessness, like I needed to run. I also had a dream about Benazir Bhutto before she died. I couldn’t see her face, but just knew it was her.
Most recently, I dreamt I could see The Apprentice final, which is so bizarre and random, as I don’t even watch it. I could see a woman looking really happy, so the next day I looked up the contestants online and saw Sian Gabbidon, who looked exactly like the lady in my dream.
I could hear this voice, too, telling me it was her. I decided to Tweet it, weeks and weeks before the final – and amazingly, that’s exactly who did win.”
“All I do is tune in to something we all have,” he said. “We live in a logical world and so don’t always see these messages, but I think we all have that sixth sense in us.
“People write off little things like knowing the phone is going to ring, or that you’re about to get bad news as a coincidence, but if we step away from the distractions of modern life a bit, we might just be able to tune in to something deeper.”
“A lot of people are open-minded and intrigued by what I do, but of course, you do get skeptics.
They say things like, ‘Why don’t you predict the lottery then?’ But I can’t control the visions I see and me winning the lottery won’t serve any purpose to the wider world.
I’m a sceptic myself and try to see both sides of the coin – the logic and the psychic. At the end of the day, though, I’m not hurting anyone in what I do, so skeptics, bring it on.”
