'Hail, Hail, Ras-putin'. This man's story has intrigued me for all of my life. His daughter's book was the most rewarding insight I have read in matters corporeal but it is the issues of his knowledge to heal and how he died, that she makes evident, which deserve further explanation. When first I read how Rasputin had been taught in a monastery - I wondered. How is it that Christian 'brothers' or friars are able to practice these shamanic arts? In Nicholas and Alexandra, I saw more of the political aspects as well as the stupidity of the Czar and his wife who depended so heavily on Rasputin. Of course, there are reasons and sciences which I have continued to study and find. These studies are able to explain what happened and how these things can be. For example, he did not heal the young son Alexei of haemophilia because the child actually had Aplastic Crisis and it naturally settles itself when the red blood cells are replenished. But he knew or sensed this, whereas the doctors did not.

The one aspect of his prophecy in writing about his death that I regard with awe is that his daughter reports he absolutely knew he went to meet death on the night he died. I can see how he would decree the end of the Romanovs if one of their relatives were involved in his murder. I can even imagine as I read her story about his death that he enjoyed and was fully up to the challenge of cheating death or the poisons used upon him. He died of drowning after being poisoned, shot, beaten and stabbed to be thought dead many times over. His prophecy about the end of the Russian Empire was fulfilled because one member of the Royal family was the murderer who led the conspirators. They cut a whole in the ice and dropped his body wrapped inside a carpet into the river. He apparently never learned to apply ethics or RIGHT THOUGHT in his studies but that is also true of the monks or Christians he learned from.
