Mother Shipton

This web site, now fully re-awakening in 2021 and continuing to expand, will provide evidence supportive of this intuitive woman's existence, though there is no confirmed evidence her name was "Ursula Southeil" (or "Sontheil"), contrary to many popular accounts. One of the earliest records actually states her name as "Ursula Soothtell", and this site will examine how that may not be coincidental, though definitive proof of her name is lost to history. That source also refers to "Shipton's wife", and there is indeed historical evidence of the Shipton family name in the area she may have lived.

What we can know with certainty is how much the Mother Shipton prophetic legacy was revered and trusted for many years after she was said to have lived, including by many in the present day.

Through careful, objective, enlightened study of the resources available, a much clearer picture of Mother Shipton will be revealed. We will analyze the controversy surrounding many words attributed to Mother Shipton that were either proven as forgeries or have been alleged as forgeries. We will even explore the fascinating mysteries around the uncanny prescience of some often-repeated alleged forgeries.

What we can discern about her life from historical resources will be examined closely, seeing beyond the many stories surrounding her past, stories asserted through the centuries by those either proclaiming or maligning her legendary "witch-like" attributes.

In the process, we will begin to envision the real Mother Shipton evidence suggests may have walked upon the Earth, an intuitive woman trusted by those whose lives she touched, not a caricature and not a fraud, and with no verifiable indication of ever being burned at the stake, though she may have been threatened with that fate by a notorious Archbishop.

When considering that the real Mother Shipton may not have had quite as fanciful a history (yet extraordinary by any measure), nor can we be sure she said much of what is attributed to her, we will explore the eerie precognitive mystery of some of those words, including those considered by historians to be forgeries. We will scrutinize the alleged forgeries to determine just how logically and historically justified is their fabrication, while keeping a mind open to remarkable possibilities.

Shrouded by controversy and misconstrued by many, the legacy of Mother Shipton is reaching out to us across time, assisting us to look at prophecy itself in an entirely new light.

This web site is fully re-awakening in 2021 for very obvious reasons - at no time in our recent history is it more important to be fully examining the research intended for this web site that has not yet been shared (an effort the author of this site began over a decade ago). Welcome to the Awakening!
