Maurice WoodruffMaurice Woodruff was an astrologer and clairvoyant and was born in London in 1916. He was not only well known in England he also made a name for himself internationally for the accuracy of his psychic predictions. Maurice is another clairvoyant where the gift seems to have been passed on from one generation to the next. His mother was Vera ‘Woody’ Woodruff a noted clairvoyant.

Maurice Woodruff was not shy in presenting his predictions to the world. He would use newspapers to let the world know what he had seen. He was a regular at stage and cabaret shows where he would share his visions with the audience. In his later years he also made numerous television appearances where he outlined his predictions for the future.

A Life in the Spotlight

It was not only on British television where Woodruff made a name for himself, he even had his own television show in America in 1969 entitled ‘Maurice Woodruff Predicts’. He also put pen to paper and wrote several books based upon his abilities. ‘Probing the Unknown: The Personal Experiences of a Psychic’ and ‘The Secrets of Foretelling Your Own Future’ were published in the late sixties and early seventies. His other book ‘Woody’ he wrote detailing the life and experiences of his mother.

Despite always being in the spotlight his is perhaps most famous as being a psychic to the stars, to the celebrities of the day. His most famous client has to have been actor and comedian Peter Sellers. It is claimed by a number of sources that Sellers would not make any major life altering decisions without first consulting Woodruff. In the 2004 movie ‘The Life and Death of Peter Sellers’ actor Stephen Fry plays Woodruff; a man open about his homosexuality in a time when it was still rarely talked about in public. Woodruff passed away in 1973 at the age of only fifty six in Singapore, while working on a lecture tour.

Marketing a Psychic

Unlike many psychics and mediums working in the same era, Maurice Woodruff was all about spreading his message to all that would listen. He even issued an LP entitled ‘Know What Will Happen Tomorrow’. On the cover of which he was billed as being a world class clairvoyant with the same uncanny ability for predicting future events as Nostradamus. In truth the LP was filled with rather vague and broad ranging predictions, which in a nod to Nostradamus were open to interpretation. The predictions on the LP were said to cover the first six months of the year 1962, even so he managed to miss some of the major events that were to take place in this window of time.  While he may have been ahead of his time in his desire to spread the world, the general public were just not ready for predictions they were required to interpret themselves, they wanted something more finite, something they could put their finger in and say he was right about. Sadly so did the Warner Bros record company and a second LP was not forthcoming.

    I remember reading Maurice Woodruff’s predictions for 1965 in the December 1964 issue of the TV Times. The one prediction that still astonishes me is when Maurice stated that the 1965 Epsom Derby would be won by a horse with no more than five letters in its name, and will travel across a small stretch of water. The result of the 1965 Epsom Derby was a win for a horse named Relko, and he was trained in France. Remember that prediction was made almost 6 months prior to the race, which no one can possibly deny is truly amazing.
    I am now convinced that some people really do have the ability to predict future events. How else can you possibly explain the above example?
