Denise E. Jacobs’s incredible life is one of those rare stories that actually could be turned into a Hollywood movie. Now, for the first time, she is sharing it with the public in her new memoir, Red Amaryllis.
When the phone call came through, Denise E. Jacobs couldn’t believe her ears. Having battled for eight years in a truly David Vs Goliath historic legal case against one of the world’s largest multinational financial companies, she was expecting to have to continue her fight in the Royal Courts of Justice as her case went forward to trial.
Instead, a close friend and respected barrister had just rang to inform her that the defendants, Legal & General Assurance Society Ltd, had suddenly decided to settle out of court, not only paying the compensation that Denise and her husband, Michael, had been seeking for so long but also covering all legal fees as well.
Against all the odds, and after more than 9,000 collective hours spent in this epic struggle, she had finally been vindicated—but she appreciated that she couldn’t have done it without the unfaltering assistance of her brother, Paul. He had been her “ace in the hole”, with her every step of the way, and proving to be the deciding factor that Legal & General’s own crack team of legal eagles had never counted on. Then again, why would they? After all, Paul had died nearly a decade before.
Denise, however, had never doubted that Paul would come through for her, just as he had always done while alive, and as the dust settled, she reflected that the remarkable outcome had a far greater significance than the purely financial. True, it had brought a positive ending to the terrible ordeal which had seen her and Michael lose their livelihoods and their home after falling victim to an advanced fee fraud. True, there was the uplifting sense of justice having eventually prevailed. But more than that, it irrefutably proved what she had been saying for many years: death is not the end of life, and those in the life after this communicate through her to help those in need.
Yet she had not always had this opinion, nor had always displayed this incredible gift. In fact, as she freely admits, Denise was just an “ordinary girl” when growing up in Darlington, County Durham. After finishing school, she had spent time in the heady heights of London, training as a hairdresser with the noted Robert Fielding of Regent Street School of Hairdressing, but upon her return home she had expected to be “just another face in the crowd”, focussing her time on building up her own salon and starting a family.
And so, it went until in the early 1980s when now in her early 20s, Denise started to feel “very strange sensations”. “My life started to change in extraordinary ways”, she recalls. “I felt as though I’d somehow got onto a merry-go-round that was spinning faster and faster, with no way to get off.”
Out of nowhere she suddenly had a premonition one day that an accident was going to happen to her father.
She continues: “My heart started racing and I felt detached from reality, while in my mind’s eye I saw an image of a car accident.
“I felt a sense of acute urgency, a bit like the feeling you get when you know something you’re cooking is about to burn, and you have to stop what you’re doing and run to save it.”
The vision “passed in a flash” and just as quickly Denise jumped on the phone to check that her dad was OK. He told her that he hadn’t been in any sort of accident and that he would be fine but then, just two days later, he called Denise back to let her know that the previous evening a car had reversed into his just as he was exiting a car park. Thankfully, it had only been a minor bump but he conceded that his daughter’s warning had come true.
Denise’s husband, Michael, tried to downplay the spooky happening, saying that “It was just a lucky guess”. Denise, however, knew that there had been no guesswork involved. Someone, or something, had tipped her off about a future event.
This newfound ability to know things that she—or anybody—shouldn’t be able to know continued to manifest over the passing months, much to Denise’s confusion. It was only when Michael arranged for them to attend a psychic readings event that the penny finally dropped, with the female medium declaring to Denise that “You have the gift of being able to communicate with those who have departed this world and moved into the next dimension”.
What she still wasn’t aware of, however, was that she had been given this gift for a specific purpose. It was only a year later, in 1985, that the veil was lifted, when she says that she received a terrifying vision of what was to come in the future: nuclear war.
Denise still remembers that fateful day with a shudder: “I was in the kitchen of my house with my then-baby boy, Daniel, when I heard the voice of my late mother-in-law, Celia, instructing me to ‘look out of the window’.
“I was paralysed with terror by what I saw. There was a blinding flash of light followed by a deafening boom, followed by a terrible mushroom cloud.
“I could only watch as men, women, children and babies evaporated before me. Others screamed with the hell of being set on fire. I felt bile rising in my throat as I tried to assimilate the horror of what I had witnessed.”
In that moment it became clear why she had been given her gift, as she explains: “Those in the life after this life have, for some reason, tasked me with being their mouthpiece, warning of a Third World War to come unless we all embrace a more peaceful path.”
Since that time, the knowledge of what is to come—with events leading to atomic war commencing in the Middle East in 2025—has remained a “sacred duty and a constant weight on my shoulders”, Denise says.
Though she has wanted to tell the world ever since first having her vision, Denise has known that that she would just be dismissed as a “crackpot” without any proof.
What she needed was incontestable evidence, and that finally came through the court case against Legal & General.
Back in the late ‘80s, Denise and Michael looked set to strike it rich after launching a pioneering business providing video entertainment systems in taxis and aeroplanes. They simply needed external financial backing to grow the fledgling business and thought they had found their passport to success in financiers Graham Alexander and John Butler.
They had been introduced to the pair by a financial advisor and tied agent for Legal & General, and everything seemed to be heading in the right direction, with a promise of a multi-million loan.
To secure the loan they did have to pay an upfront fee for insurance, necessitating the re-mortgaging of their house, but this could easily be paid back once the money arrived, they reckoned.
The problem was, it never did arrive. Denise and Michael had been the unwitting victims of financial fraud and while the law did eventually catch up with serial fraudsters Alexander and Butler, who both spent six years behind bars after being found guilty of conspiracy to obtain money by deception, it left Denise and her husband virtually penniless.
Their only recourse was to sue Legal & General, with action commencing in 1996, but it soon became clear that it seemed to be an unwinnable case. The paperwork confirming that the representative who had arranged the deal with fraudsters had authority to act for Legal & General had long since gone missing.
“We were told in no uncertain terms that if we couldn’t prove that this agent had authority from Legal & General to act for them then all our claims would fail and we would be liable for all court costs, which could amount to many hundreds of thousands of pounds”, says Denise.
As the case dragged on, Denise received two further blows. She was diagnosed with breast cancer, and soon after was notified that her legal aid support would be terminated.
Rather than give up, however, Denise dedicated herself to learning financial law, and doing so while undergoing gruelling rounds of chemotherapy.
Mercifully, she was able to beat cancer but the legal fight continued, still with no definitive proof that would give Denise the upper hand.
It was in 2002, with the case now at Royal Courts of Justice and entering its final stage, that the breakthrough she’d been praying for finally arrived.
Denise says that she received a vision of where to find the vital, seemingly untraceable, documents she’d been seeking for so long, provided to her by her younger brother, Paul, who had become her main connection with those in the next dimension ever since his death in 1992 from brain cancer.
She continues: “Paul notified me of his presence, indicated by a soft golden glow. He showed me the office where the papers were and armed with that information I was able to arrange for their delivery.
“Once I was able to read the documents I knew they were exactly what was required to prove the connection. The jigsaw was complete and the result was an on-the-steps settlement from Legal & General, all thanks to Paul.”
It has been 19 years since the conclusion of the case and, since that time, Denise has been preparing for her next fight—to warn about an impending WWIII.
She adds: “I don’t blame people for being cynical when it comes to talk of psychics and survival after death. If I hadn’t gone through everything that I have then I’d be right there with the scoffers.
“But the inconvenient truth is that this all did happen, and every word is in black and white in my memoir, Red Amaryllis. There was no possible way I could have found the missing paperwork and received a settlement from Legal & General if I hadn’t been given that information from those in a higher dimension.
“I’ve been told by Paul that now is the right time to tell my story, in the hope that people will listen before it’s too late.
“I’m not looking to become famous or wealthy from my story. I only want to avert a disaster, the likes of which we have never seen, for the sake of both our future and future generations.
“We need to wake up and realise that the world is rapidly heading in a terrifying direction. There’s still time to change the future by the choices we make, but it will require world leaders to appreciate the true consequences of their bellicose decisions. The world must unite to demand peace.”
“I have fulfilled my purpose by making this warning. It’s now up to everybody to make up their own minds. I can only hope that we all make the right decision.”
Interview with Denise E. Jacobs
Denise E. Jacobs tells us more about how she came to discover she had psychic powers, about her historic legal case against Legal & General, and about why she believes a Third World War is looming.
Q. When you first received messages from the next dimension, you must have thought you were going out your mind. What convinced you otherwise?
A. I did think I was going out of my mind because before I started having these experiences I didn’t believe in psychics. I never even considered the possibility of an afterlife.
One of the first messages that I passed along was to my older brother, Terry. It was one that I considered so outrageous that it couldn’t possibly be right, but it turned out to be true. I was as shocked as my brother. Thinking back to this time, I could only hold my focus for a short period of time. These days I can keep passing along messages for several hours.
Q. How did you first start to develop your ability?
A. It’s a long and complicated story, but early on I was introduced to another genuine psychic who explained what was going on with me. I realise now that I was very fortunate to be introduced to a genuine psychic rather than one of the countless fraudsters. They can ruin things very quickly. Basically, I had to learn how to use all my senses and how to travel back or forward in time.
Q. You don’t like being described as a psychic. Why is this?
A. I am incredibly uncomfortable with being described as a psychic and cringe when I hear the words. Unfortunately, the reputation of anyone who has a genuine ability to receive ‘messages’ has been completely tarnished by too many years of embarrassing fraudsters and stage performers desperate for attention (isn’t that always the case?).
There are numerous people out there who are genuine mediums; some brilliant, some good, some not so good, but the taboo persists. It can be tricky to find the good ones whilst the fraudsters are dangerous people who cause untold harm.
Q. Your memoir, Red Amaryllis, features many examples of your psychic powers in action. Which one do you find particularly remarkable?
A. It’s detailed in the book but, in short, it’s the story of Annabelle Towers, who worked at a truly ancient property built in 1279 called ‘Assers’. She asked for my help which I was able to provide. She wanted the garden bench at the property moved for a particular reason which I won’t go into here. No spoilers! Read my memoir to find out more.
Q. What can Red Amaryllis offer to the reader?
A. My life journey will demonstrate an extraordinary and proven ability to unlock the past, expose the present and see our future. Even more amazing is the fight back in the historic case against the financial institution. But there is much more to this than meets the eye and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for people to witness a real-life medium in the most high-profile of settings. It slowly becomes clear that, in my drive to win the case, my uncanny ability to uncover hidden evidence has far greater implications. It proves that there is another dimension which exists around ours in which the vibrations in it travel far faster than in this one. And those in this dimension have chosen to return to me to warn us that WWIII is rapidly looming and, for all our sake, we must do something to stop it before it is too late.
Q. Can you briefly explain the facts surrounding your historic legal case?
Back in the 1980s, Michael and I conceived the idea of in-flight televisual entertainment that we enjoy today and set up a public company called Transport Media plc to develop it. In 1988, we needed finance to expand the company. We were given bad advice by agents of Legal & General and instead of enjoying a bright future our life was destroyed instead. This was during the financial mis-selling debacle of the 1980s.
Q. What gave you your determination to continue to fight what was considered an unwinnable case?
A. I hate injustice and, therefore, it motivated me and became my impetus for studying law and taking on the financial institution myself. I had to study some pretty complex law to do so. Also, I’d been given so much evidence in there being a higher power, with prediction after prediction coming true, that it gave me confidence to continue, even at my lowest moments.
I also had a disruptive home life, which taught me that rather than being cruel to people I should do everything I can to help and care for them. I guess I carried this lesson through life with me. I can’t stand people who are spiteful and destructive. It causes so much pain to those on the receiving end. I am also very strong minded and the most important of all was to remember my purpose, having witnessed the horrors of our future.
Q. What would you say was your lowest point during this time?
A. In the middle of the court case, being diagnosed with cancer for the second time and undergoing treatment a second time, whilst having my father tell me he was going to stop helping us financially, so we had to leave our rented accommodation and then, at the same time, the financial institution succeeded in having our legal aid withdrawn. It was the lowest point of my life (other than my brother, Paul, dying).
Q. How did you end up learning the law?
A. Our legal aid was withdrawn because, according to Legal & General’s lawyers, we were “vexatious litigants”, “doomed to failure” and “the financial institution had no case to answer”. This left us with no legal representation which was an appalling miscarriage of justice in itself.
The case was eventually settled in 2002 after I was able to pinpoint the exact locations, initially unknown to me, where hidden evidence was located, therefore proving our case. Even the custodians of this evidence can testify to the impossibility of me knowing.
Q. Why do you think there will be a Third World War in coming years?
A. I suspect this whole thing will kick off because of the theocrats in Iran who are desperate to build nuclear weapons. America’s decision to give them billions of dollars to NOT build a weapon was a bad one because I am sure it’s being developed in secret all this time.
