David Icke (pronounced “Ike”) is a former Professional Soccer player, journalist, network anchorman with the BBC, spokesman in the 1980’s for the British Green Party, and since 1990 a full time investigator into who and what is really controlling the world. Many have dubbed Icke as the “most controversial speaker” on the planet. They used to laugh at him, but now they come in the thousands to hear him speak all over the world. He is the author of 16 books and among them are: And the Truth Shall Set You Free, The Biggest Secret, Children of the Matrix, Alice in Wonderland and The World Trade Center Disaster ~ why the official story of 9/11 is a monumental lie, and his latest book, Tales from the Time Loop – The most comprehensive exposé of the global conspiracy ever written and all you need to know to be truly free. David’s words are designed to inspire all of us to be who we really are, to fling open the door of the mental prison we build for ourselves and to walk into the light of freedom.
David Icke’s Journey David was born in Leicester, England, at around 6.15 pm on April 29th, 1952. He was brought up in what they call in Britain a “working class” family on a big council housing estate and money was short, very short, throughout his childhood. He wanted to be a professional soccer player for as long as he could remember and he achieved that by leaving school to play for Coventry City and Hereford United in the English league. But just six months after his soccer career began he started to suffer from serious arthritis that started in the left knee and progressed to the right knee, ankles, elbows, and, later in life, to his wrists and hands. In the final year of his soccer career, at the age of 20, he was in agony every morning at training until his joints were warmed up. But it was at this same time he was enjoying a very successful period in his career and wanted to carry on.
This challenge activated still more from within him a fierce determination he has always had not to capitulate to adversity and to overcome whatever life may choose to put before him. Or in truth, what his “own journey” chooses to experience. Towards the end of that soccer season, the pain disappeared for around a month and he thought he was going to be OK. But then one morning he awoke to find a familiar but ever more threatening attack facing him that was about to put an end to the dream he worked so very hard for. Every one of his joints was in agony, like knives attacking the very core of his existence. It became quite clear that Icke’s career was over. It took some days for him to just get up and hobble, never mind walk again. He just turned 21 in the year 1973 and was led to believe that he would end up a cripple.
At this point he had nowhere to go and quickly decided that he wanted to be a television presenter with the BBC. This newfound goal set him off looking for work as a journalist. This was not easy because school had bored him rigid and he left to play soccer before taking any exams (and in doing so says; Thank-you, God!). He would do his learning on his terms, in his time, and the “educational” system barely touched him. He rejected it all with a sort of inner knowing that it was not relevant to him. David managed to get a job on a small weekly paper in Leicester, not least because he was the only applicant and from then on he advanced quickly through newspapers, local radio and regional television to become a national sports and news anchor man and reporter. Soon after he achieved this, in 1982, he moved to an island off the south coast of England called the Isle of Wight, a place he had been attracted to since he was a small child.
It was here that he began to campaign on environmental issues and this led him to becoming a national spokesman for the British Green Party. This was a post he held at the time of the Greens greatest, indeed only success at national elections in the UK, the election for members of the European Parliament in 1989. But he saw that while the Green Party talked about being different, it was, like all the Green parties he has come across, just the old politics under a new name. He lost interest and left as his life went through the most unbelievable upheavals. From the mid -1980’s onwards, he had also lost interest in television. He was doing it not because he actually desired to do it but to earn money to spend on what he really wanted to do – environmental campaigning. He found television to be an empty, soul-less world in which insecurity and fear abounded. And after the events of March 1990, his time in television was soon to be over.
He wrote a book in 1989 called It Doesn’t Have To Be Like This, setting out the vision and agenda of the Greens because he felt they were talking to each other and not to the public as a whole. As he was writing the book, and in his work for the BBC, he began to feel a presence around him, like there was always someone in the room when there was not. There was a point in 1990, while sitting on the side of a bed in a hotel room in London, where he was compelled to look up and say to whomever or whatever: “If you are there will you please contact me because you are driving me up the bloody wall!” Soon afterwards, events began to move quickly. In March, 1990, he was playing soccer with his son Gareth on the seafront at Ryde on the Isle of Wight and he said they would go and have some lunch at the railway station café a short walk away.
The café was full and they turned to walk away when someone recognised David and began to ask questions about soccer. When the conversation was over, David couldn’t see Gareth, but he knew he would be in the newspaper shop nearby looking at books he liked. So it was. David stood at the entrance to the shop and said they were going now to find another café, but as he turned to leave, his feet would not move. They were stuck to the ground as if two magnets were pulling them to the floor. He then heard a voice in his head say: “Go and look at the books on the far side.” His immediate thought was: “What the hell was this all about”? He knew this shop very well and the books in that section were of no interest to him. But given the voice and what was happening to his feet, he went over to see what would happen. The first book he saw was one by a psychic lady and he was immediately intrigued because of this presence he had felt around him. He wondered if she would be able to tell him what was going on. She was also a hands-on healer and so he wrote to her and made an appointment for healing, not telling her about the presence or anything else. To her, he was a client wanting healing for his arthritis. He only saw her four times and in the first two visits nothing happened of note, except that he talked with her about other dimensions and the wider vision of life. Then, on the third visit, he was lying on the couch while the healing was being done when he felt like a spider’s web on his face. He had remembered reading in her book that this can happen when “spirits” are trying to make contact. He said nothing to her, but within fifteen seconds, no more, she threw her head back and said: “This is powerful, I’ll have to close my eyes for this one!”
She said she was seeing a figure who wanted her to pass on messages to him. The same happened a week later and this is what the “figure” asked her to tell him on those two occasions: He is a healer who is here to heal the earth and he will be world famous. He will face enormous opposition, but we will always be there to protect him. He is still a child spiritually, but he will be given the spiritual riches. Sometimes he will say things and wonder where they came from. They will be our words. Knowledge will be put into his mind, and at other times he will be led to knowledge. He was chosen as youngster for his courage. He has been tested and has passed all the tests. He was led into football to learn discipline, but when that was learned it was time to move on. He also had to learn how to cope with disappointment, experience all the emotions, and how to get up and get on with it. The spiritual way is tough and no-one makes it easy. We know he wanted us to contact him, but the time wasn’t right. He was led here to be contacted, not to be cured. But one day he will be completely cured. He will always have what he needs, but no more. Don’t try to do it all alone. Go hand in hand with others, so you can pick each other up as you fall. One man cannot change the world, but one man can communicate the message that will change the world. He will write five books in three years. Politics is not for him. He is too spiritual. Politics is anti-spiritual and will make him very unhappy. He will leave politics. He doesn’t have to do anything. It will happen gradually over a year. (Exactly as happened). In 20 years there will be a different kind of flying machine, very different from the aircraft of today. Time will have no meaning. Where you want to be, you will be. There will be great earthquakes. These will come as a warning to the human race. They will occur in places that have never experienced them. Taking oil from the seabed is destabilizing the inner earth. The
