Scallion, Gordon Michael

Gordon-Michael Scallion, a contemporary prophet known for his predictions of vast changes, began his current career in 1979. As an electronic consultant, he had been meeting with a client when unexpectedly, he lost his voice. He checked into a hospital, and during his stay had an apparition of a woman who came into his room and hovered several feet above him. She began to tell him about his life, what was in store for the next month and then events that would occur over the next decades. Most importantly, she predicted major changes to the Earth that would begin at the end of the 1980s and increase annually through the 1990s. Immediately after the woman departed, Scallion's voice returned. It also appeared that he had experienced a psychic awakening. He began to see auras around people and emerged as a healer.

He continued to receive visions of future events and through the 1980s had a series of successful predictions, including the 1984 Mexico City earthquake and George Bush's election as president in 1988. In 1984, inner guidance told him to move to a location within ten miles of the New Hampshire border at an elevation 300 feet above sea level. He settled in Chesterfield, New Hampshire. Then in 1991 he had a set of disturbing dreams that took place over 29 evenings. He wrote down the contents of the dreams and sent the transcript to a number of his friends. This report is now seen as the origin of what would become his periodical, The Earth Changes Report. The subject of his dreams was worldwide changes, many of a catastrophic nature.

In the 1990s, Scallion unveiled maps of North America and the world that indicated a series of significant geographical changes that he predicted would occur between 1998 and 2012. They bear some resemblance to the I AM America map published in 1989. Scallion's map shows the American West Coast, the Mississippi River Valley, and Florida now covered by water. It also shows the emergence of new land masses east of Australia, south of the southern tip of South America, and in the midst of the South Pacific Ocean. Concurrent with the map, Scallion predicted that a great spiritual awakening would occur worldwide during the 1990s. He saw that by the year 2002 humanity would be reborn and living in harmony with each other, and that a new utopian society would arise. Many of Scallion's predicted changes are based upon his appropriation of a form of what is termed the Gaia hypothesis, the idea that the Earth is itself a living organism that reacts to human disturbance of the natural order of things.

Scallion and his wife, Cynthia Keyes, now head the Matrix Institute and send out The Earth Changes Newsletter bimonthly. The institute may be reached at P.O. Box 336, Chesterfield, NH 03443. It has a website at http://www.matrixinstitute.com/. A complete evaluation of Scallion's career rests on the dramatic predictions he has made for the first decade of the new millennium. Objective looks at his predictions to date note both significant hits and misses among those predictions that were falsifiable.
