Shortly before we celebrated the chiming of Big Ben and welcomed 2019, psychic Nicolas Aujula had a number of visions telling him it was going to be a difficult year.
The 34-year-old claims he foresaw earthquakes in China and Cuba, a mass London cabbie protest, a fire at a large historical church and a scandal involving a public figure named Justin – all of which came true.
And now, as we prepare to begin a new decade, Nicolas has shared his predictions for 2020 – and it’s going to be quite a year if he’s correct.
Nicolas, from south London, has been sensing spirits and experiencing supernatural visions since he was a child, and believes he has led past lives as an Egyptian queen and a lion.
Nicolas, who works as a past life regression therapist and hypnotherapist, said: “Some of the visions I have are through dreams, and others just hit when I am walking around.
“The dreams are the strongest, though, as that’s when you are conked out. The logical side of your brain is switched off, giving more room to your intuitive side.”
Explaining some of the predictions that have come to him, he said: “I’ve seen lots of visions of protests – people taking to the streets, not so much just here, but all over the world.
“Of course, people protest all the time, but I’m seeing this more as a global mass movement.
“I also feel Trump will be defeated, although he won’t go quietly and have seen visions of severe weather and very heavy winds in the UK.”
Nicolas has also had a number of visions relating to the world of showbiz.
He continued: “I’ve had visions of Paris Hilton announcing she is having a baby, a scandal around Lindsay Lohan and Jennifer Aniston starting a significant new relationship.
“I’ve also suddenly become very aware of Amy Winehouse, so I wonder if there will be another death of a young female singer in the headlines, perhaps of something surrounding alcohol and addiction.
“This one is really bizarre and random, but I’ve seen visions of a floral cupcake dress going viral, and people really sitting up and noticing the design.”
Some other notable visions Nicolas has had, which he believes may end up relating to stories that hit the news, include a large fire at a UK hospital, a dog winning a talent show and England enjoying success at a major football tournament – possibly the UEFA Euro tournament, which begins in June.
“I don’t follow football, but I can see England doing well in a really big match,” he said.
Over the years, Nicolas believes his visions have helped him predict major world events before they happen.
Speaking at the end of 2018 about his forecast for the year ahead, he mentioned seeing earthquakes in China and Cuba, a mass London cabbie protest, a scandal involving a public figure named Justin and singer Taylor Swift getting engaged.
“When I look back at 2019, the things I said at the start compared with events that happened throughout are quite eye-opening,” he said.
“For example, on June 17, months after my vision, there was a severe earthquake in Southern China where 13 people died.
“I also talked about cabbies protesting, which they did in the spring at Parliament Square in London.
“I’d had visions of someone called Justin getting caught up in a scandal. At the time I wondered if it could be Bieber or Timberlake – but could that have been Justin Trudeau, the Canadian prime minister, who was criticised when a picture emerged of him dressed in a turban wearing black makeup .
