Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground.—James Taylor, “Fire and Rain”
Art Bell was interviewing us, The Psychic Twins, on his live radio show “Coast to Coast AM.” The date was November 2, 1999. Twenty million listeners worldwide tune in to this nationally syndicated show that focuses on controversial and mystical subjects. If you’re involved in the paranormal field, it is a great honor to be invited to guest on Art’s show, as thousands of people approach his producers for such an opportunity. “Coast to Coast AM” became the fourth most popular radio show in the country during the 1990s. This particular program addressed Y2K and millennium prophecies. Art Bell interviewed us for two hours and then invited listeners to call in with their questions.
There is one call we will never forget.
Caller: I just wanted to say I’d like the twins to generalize a little more on the upcoming events of national disasters or anything like that; I’m sort of making a list.
Terry: Are you talking about natural disasters, or … ?
Art: Well, natural or unnatural. Sure.
Linda: We are seeing a lot of natural disasters in terms of earthquakes and hurricanes, blizzards coming up, especially within the next ten to twelve years. A lot of activity like that because of global warming. We are seeing various terrorist attacks on
federal government … excuse me, federal buildings.
Terry: Yes … and also the New York Trade Center. The World Trade Center. By 2002, something with a terrorist attack. Yes.
The show was broadcast live on November 2, 1999. Almost two years before the cataclysmic event of September 11, 2001 occurred.
The day before our radio show interview, we spent the entire day on November 1 preparing for our “Millennium Prophecies.” Sitting side by side in our living room in West Hollywood, California, we went into a “conscious trance” state, and allowed our hands to be maneuvered across the page, used our method of automatic writing to channel information from the Akashic Records. Accessing the Akashic Records, as you will later learn more about, is like tuning into a cosmic Web library where all thoughts, deeds and actions are recorded. We asked to receive information on every topic we could think of: war, disease breakthroughs, air disasters, the stock market, politics, and the topic on everyone’s mind, Y2K. Through accessing the Akashic Records, sometimes sentence fragments came through, sometimes dates, names and places, almost as if we were human Ouija boards.
After about ten minutes, Linda printed in bold capital letters:
WORLD TRADE TOWERS TERRORIST ATTACK BY 2002,
NEW YORK CITY. ATTACKS ON GOVERNMENT FEDERAL
BUILDINGS, WASHINGTON D.C. BIN LADEN. THOUSANDS PERISH.
PLANE CRASH, AMERICAN AIRLINES. UNITED AIRLINES.
AS MANY AS 5,000 KILLED. BOMBING.
Linda had looked up from her writing, wide-eyed, and glanced at Terry.
Terry nodded solemnly, realizing she’d gotten the same message. Chills went up our spines. As we compared notes, we found that most of our predictions were identical. We frequently find that our written predictions match, even when we are sitting in different rooms while we work. But an event of this magnitude, in such great detail—ven we were surprised.
Doing prophecy work usually does not scare us, probably because we have to be detached emotionally to allow our conscious minds to step aside so that detailed information can come in from our guides.
We are literally accessing information fields from other realms. The fear comes later, after the prophecy comes true, because of the weight of responsibility of being perhaps the only ones who, for whatever reason, have been singled out to be the receivers of that knowledge. In addition, we were concerned that because of the graveness of this information, we might look like silly New Age quacks to the millions of listeners worldwide. For this reason most psychics will not make public appearances, and many use pseudonyms.
Yet our inner voices compelled us to take the risk, despite neither of us having much interest in politics or focusing on past terrorist attacks. While we were vaguely aware of the 1991 bombing in the World Trade Center, we had moved to Los Angeles by that time, and it did not have much impact on us. With this startling news flowing through us, it felt as if we were being called to be “speakerphones” for a higher purpose, to encourage, educate, and yes, warn people of what was to come.
When we thought of those two grand towers in New York, however, the monolithic symbols of American power, wealth, and industry, we couldn’t help but remember an earlier association with them. In the early 80s, during our days as comics and singers, we had performed at a party on the top of the World Trade Center, in Windows on the World, the huge restaurant on the top floor of one of the towers. We had jokingly dubbed ourselves “Miss Twin Towers,” a name that stayed with us because we stood six-foot-two in heels.
We vividly recalled performing there on that stormy night in October 1980. We were in our dressing room putting on makeup for the show. The winds were so powerful we felt the tower swaying side to side. Hearing the whooshing sounds the gusts made around and between the two gigantic towers, Terry commented to Linda, “This is not good. This building is so fragile.” Linda nodded in agreement. We had a very ominous feeling about it, but we had to get in costume and start the show.
Twenty years later, we were now envisioning the demise of the World Trade Towers within the next two years. We wondered what the consequences would be if we shared this prophecy on the Art Bell Show.
What if we were wrong?
Would we be alarming millions of people unnecessarily? If the events came to pass, would the FBI arrest us as suspects since we knew more than we should? Our guides told us that we needed to openly share what we knew. While we knew following that advice was the right thing to do, we admitted to each other our growing apprehension.
Besides the 9/11 prophecy on that particular radio show in 1999, we also predicted other events that came true. A female astrologer called in to ask what we saw around May of 2000. She had detected an unusual planetary alignment, known as a “harmonic convergence,” that would occur during that time period. In answer to her question, we told her that the stock market would crash in May of 2000. Exactly as we predicted, in May of 2000 the Dow and Nasdaq did in fact experience their biggest point drop in history. Even the economists on Wall Street did not see it coming, and trillions of dollars were lost. A male caller asked us who would be our next president. We predicted the George W. Bush Presidential win. At the time, he had not yet been nominated. (We also accurately predicted the re-election of Bush in 2004). Art Bell declined to hazard a guess about who the next president would be. We predicted a shooting in Seattle, which actually happened six hours after our show aired.
The clock flashed 2:00 a.m. when we ended the show. We were exhausted but wired. We were shocked to have made so many predictions of such huge impact to 20 million listeners worldwide. What would come of all this?
