In Memory of my Son, Michael John Oates

Michael was a wonderfully talented young man, with a sweet innocent heart. He was tragically taken from us too soon, at the tender age of 21. Michael loved Reverse Speech with a passion, and spent much time researching and documenting it. This page will document some of his findings.

Michael’s article “This is Reverse Speech.”

Hullo, my name is Michael John Oates and I am about to inform you of a new technology that allows anybody access to the unconscious mind of another. It is called Reverse Speech and its title pretty much tells the story.

Reverse Speech is another form of human communication that works alongside the forward speech communicating the unconscious thoughts as forward speech communicates our conscious thoughts. Whatever we are thinking and feeling at the time of speaking can be heard in the sounds of our speech backwards.

The Discovery of Reverse Speech

In 1983 David Oates (my father), was running a half way house for street kids. At that time a religious fundamentalist was preaching that if you play rock n’roll music backwards you would hear the devil speaking. Well Dad thought that was a load of rubbish, so straight away he grabbed his tape machine (which had a reverse play mechanism) and played the song ‘Stairway to Heaven’ by Led Zeppelin, to prove to the kids the preacher was wrong. When the last words of the song were played “And he’s buying a stairway to heaven”, it reversed to say “Play backwards hear words sung”. I’m sure they were all a little scared to hear that!

So since then, David has been continuously researching these eerie sounds. He has proven that it is not the devil speaking, but was unable to prove that these voices don’t exist. He has come to the conclusion that reversals are being created in the right brain hemisphere and are actually the sounds of our unconscious mind. Both forwards and backward speech appear to work in unison to communicate total consciousness…forward communicating conscious thought and backward communicating unconscious thought.

One example is with Neil Armstrong’s famous words as he took the first steps on the moon “That’s one small step for Man”. When this is played backwards it says, “Man will space walk”. Because it is the voice of our unconscious, it never lies. Ten percent of all speech reversal found will express the conscious thoughts of a speaker as Neil Armstrong’s reversal did, but the other ninety- percent accesses the ninety- percent of Our brain that we’ve never been able use. The implications of that are endless. The Human mind is no longer private. We now have a tool to look inside the human mind Of another.

Politics which surround Reverse Speech

What if everybody in the world had a Revering Machine? Your spouse may suspect that you are having an affair. You sit down and talk things through. Little did you know that underneath the chair you are sitting on, is a tape machine recording your conversation so it can be analyzed by a Reverse Speech analyst, like myself and this is what it all comes down to in the end. Nothing is sacred anymore with Reverse Speech, anything that you are thinking and feeling can now be heard in the sounds of speech. Imagine what this will do to politics, government conspiracies and law enforcement? Quite a scary thought, but it is now a reality.

My father David John Oates, founder and developer of Reverse Speech has been researching this for over 14 years. He uses Reverse Speech as a therapeutic tool to look inside the mind of his patients. By analyzing his client’s speech reversals he can accurately identify the cause of any emotional issue that his client is dealing with at that time on the deep unconscious level, with just a 15-minute recording.

Speech reversals occur at an average of every 5 to 10 seconds in normal conversation. While we communicate forwards on a conscious level we are also talking backwards on an unconscious level. Quite an amazing discovery! For this now means that the contents of the human mind are now no longer private. Reversals are short sentences acting like footnotes to our unconscious thoughts. They provide direct insight into the actions and motives behind our forward speech. Many say that Reverse Speech can even communicate to our Christ nature deep within.

David Oates says that only 5 % of all speech reversals found will use everyday English expressions. These “first level reversals” explain the conscious thoughts that we are aware of thinking at the time of speaking, the other 95% of reversals found explain our unconscious thoughts in pictures and images know as metaphors. Metaphors are simple words like Wolf, Goddess, and Elvis that all have a character of their own and all operate in our unconscious mind. For example, I may find a speech reversal that says, ” My Elvis will win your love”. Elvis is a metaphor, which will create popularity for whoever is running this metaphor, but while achieving this fame, Elvis also goes into self-destruction. My Elvis will win your love, could be translated back to” I am popular so you will be my friend” If you hear the word will in a speech reversal, as in this example, the reversal is a reliable indicator of future events. Through my own experience I have noted that every speech reversal that I find with the word will in it, has always came true. David says that this is not a psychic prediction but simply the unconscious mind explaining the most probable outcome of a situation mapped out by our own metaphoric patterns. These reversals are called future tense reversals. If you find some future tense reversals be sure to note it’s meaning and also if you are very observant, you can watch speech reversals play themselves out 3 to 6 months down the track. It is quite interesting to watch.

The toughest part about Reverse Speech is actually facing your own speech reversals. Behavior gets on edge and your whole world will literally turn upside down. This isn’t just some hobby that allows you to find words backwards, this is something much more important that must be taken seriously! If you don’t take this warning very seriously then you are heading for one hell of a ride! My dad tells his student to just be AWARE of the differences you encounter while experimenting with Reverse Speech because it will amplify your emotions and we all know that emotions can either make us or break us. Be careful.

Did you know that our life is all created and planned out by metaphoric structures that live in the deepest reigns of our mind. You might even say that they live in our speech backwards? The fact is we don’t know were Reverse Speech comes from. We only know that the metaphors heard in Reverse Speech have all power over our actions and the way we live our lives. I can’t express how proud I feel to say that my father has discovered this awesome new form of communication. Now we can look inside our own minds and actually learn the unconscious mechanics which make it all work.

The Strange Phenomena which surround Reverse Speech

We now know that when we are listening to Reverse Speech we are accessing a large percentage of the mind that explains who we are, which is encoded in the metaphoric language of Reverse Speech. People today are very much in denial and are totally blind to the responsibility we share that creates our world. So instead of looking at ourselves we tend to blame others around us for what happens in our life and this creates incongruity with who we are, which causes us to only use 10% of our mind, I guess too much reality is tough. When you start to experiment with Reverse Speech I warn you that you are forced to look at your self.

Every thought, feeling or emotion we have ever suppressed deep down inside our selves will now raise it’s self back up again to conscious thought forced on by listening to your own speech reversals. Because Reverse Speech is formed in the unconscious mind we have instant access of our unconscious thoughts, conscious thought will begin downloading unconscious thought. The more we can absorb and accept the wisdom of Reverse Speech with ease the more control we can consciously gain over our actions which will also gives us control over the way we live our lives and this is not even the start of it!

Behavior manifests it’s self out in the strangest of ways, one of the strangest phenomenon’s I’ve experienced and still do experience is the manifestation of behavior and emotional issues through odors. The type of smells that manifest depends on the emotional issues you are dealing with at the time. My father uses Reverse Speech as a therapeutic tool for his clients and has noted that if he is working with a client about issues of love the odor of caned peaches will sometimes fill his office. If he experience spiritual breakthroughs with he’s clients while working with the metaphor of Christ the odor of roses fills the room, it’s like smells have more purposes than just one. Another common odor is burning rubber, it is the odor of reversal reaction; major denial with self. If your speech reversals describe you as something that you can not accept then you will begin to go into major denial with your self, metaphors will begin to conflict and collide against one another causing the smell of burning rubber. Sometimes this smell will be so strong that I will have to have to get out of the house. My father has been keeping track of these smells and researching there meanings for all of his career, when the metaphor dictionary is updated there will be a section for odors for you to look at so keep an eye out for it. We believe that odors and smell are passed and received by each other all the time on the deep unconscious level. Because Reverse Speech accesses these deep structures of our unconscious mind we start to experience these smells as our conscious awareness begins to download the unconscious mechanics which exists deep within.

I guess that these odors are just a natural phenomenon of Reverse Speech, behavior also takes a dramatic increase this whole phenomenon is know as Reversal Reaction, but that’s a topic for a later article.

The benefits gained from a Reverse Speech transcript

Contract tapes include analysis for investigative or legal work. Is your spouse sleeping around, do you have communication problems or maybe you just don’t know what is real anymore? Believe me you are not alone! It is now time to make that contact with the true sprit inside that knows all truth. The benefits are endless; it depends on how brave enough you are to look at your speech reversals. Reversals will tell you what YOU are doing to create the world you live in; Reverse Speech can give you spiritual enlightenments and will greaten your understanding about your self.

Reverse Speech the metaphoric language By Michael John Oates

G’day, for those of you who are new to the concept of Reverse Speech let me quickly cover just what it is and the implications it has to offer.

Reverse Speech is another from of human communication that occurs in the backward sounds of our speech, instead of communicating conscious thought as we do while speaking forwards, Reverse Speech communicates unconscious thought backwards. Human speech is formed and presented in a bi-level nature, forwards from the conscious mind and backwards from the unconscious mind, so literally what I am telling you is this. What ever you are thinking and feeling at the time of specking can be heard simply by playing your speech in reverse, these reverse phrases ocurre on average every 5 to 10 seconds in conversation and seem to always relate back to the forward speech. Research my father has done, David John Oates who is founder and developer of Reverse Speech enterprises, says that forward speech and backward speech work in unison which communicates total consciousness. Reversals are like footnotes of our unconscious mind expressing the way we feel and the way we act, on it’s deeper level Reverse Speech explains our soul and who we are truly are as individuals.

Only 10% of all reversals found speak in plain logic as we do consciously, these reversals will describe the conscious thought that you are aware of thinking. For example, if someone is telling a lie forwards you will hear the truth backwards: “I’m good at my work” might reverse to say, “I’m a terrible worker”. If of course you are a terrible worker.

The other 90% of reversals found explain unconscious thoughts in pictures and images know as metaphors. So if you are asking a question like this woman did, forwards she said: “I just don’t seem to be motivated anymore” a reversal occurred on that statement and said “My wolf is sleeping” backwards. In this case the woman was talking about her motivation, Reverse Speech described the wolf as our motivator and protector and this is a metaphor. She doesn’t feel motivated because on an unconscious level her wolf is sleeping and this is one of the greatest excitements that Reverse Speech has to offer, we can now actually look inside the mind of another and see what is that causes us to be the way we are. 95% of our behavior and the way we live our life is all mapped out on an unconscious level weeks, even months before it is reflected out into a reality. To change something that is unconscious consciously will never work, mainly because we only have access to 5% of brain power the other 95% of out brain all lays with our unconscious which functions and operates with metaphors (pictures and images) that we can hear in Reverse Speech. These metaphors found in Reverse Speech can describe the secrets and meanings to life if interpreted well, when learning the language of reverse speech we are also learning the languages of the Unconscious mind. Many of you readers have all probably seen these pictures while sleeping or in different states of consciousness.

Some basic metaphors heard in Reverse Speech:

Wolf is the prime motivator and protector of the psyche a person with a strong wolf will normally find it easy to be motivated to achieve his/her goals. (The terrible worker most probably has a dysfunctional wolf)

Close your eyes and picture a wolf, is it big, small? A healthy wolf should be around waist height and well groomed. Try to imagine this image of your healthy, strong wolf and keep it for as long as you can. This exercise will help strengthen your motivation.

Sword. The two edged sword is the instrument of interaction and communication. Reverse Speech is like a two edged sword, it communicates both conscious and unconscious knowledge, exposing the beasts within that have created the beasts with out. My father tells me that the two edged sword can easily cut through the heart of Man and I believe him. (Metaphorically speaking)

Eden, is described by Reverse Speech as the foundation stone for the Psyche. It is a place of birth and renewal.

These are just a couple of metaphors found in Reverse Speech. Founder and developer of Reverse Speech, David John Oates has been researching this full time for 14 years and has put together a dictionary of metaphors found in Reverse Speech. This dictionary has hundreds of metaphors and continues to grow.

Discovering the language of Reverse Speech

A lot of my individual research into Reverse Speech is focused at the metaphorical side of Reverse Speech and discovering new metaphors heard in Reverse Speech.

How I research metaphors is by understanding the common forward dialogue that is responsible for triggering off that metaphor backwards in our speech. If you are talking about love forwards you will get reversals about love, if you are talking with anger you will get metaphors that trigger off that anger, in fact the metaphors we run will always trigger off our emotions.

So to all those people who are interested in expanding our metaphor dictionary, also consider that we are expanding our conscious awareness at the same time and this is very exciting! For those who are interested into the metaphoric research please visit my own metaphor search page. At this site you will find all listed metaphors that I am researching before they are added to the dictionary, I guess you could say that I’m a pioneer of the unconscious mind.

Metaphor story: Rocelins death By Michael John Oates

Mon Jan 25 21:44:18 1999

“Rocelins Death”

I am Lancelot, knight in white shining armour, riding through the forest to the beat of the wind, which blows from the south. My eagle travels this same wind with me while in search for a witch called Rocelin.

Over the hills I rode off into the winds which beats our hearts in lust for Rocelins death. A wolf is strong and full of might, you can see the power of a wolf just by looking into his eyes. My wolf is a very sharp predator, it is the hunter and protector for my Psyche. Wolf’s heart and my heart now beats together because our motives are the same. We will hunt Rocelin together.

So off we went, me wearing my white armour, sword and shield with an eagle flying high ahead in the in the sky leading us to the Garden of Eden were Rocelin lives. As I rode upon the open grass I noticed that my eagle took a sudden change in flight as it glided over to Lucifer, this was a short encounter that only lasted a few minutes. The eagle started to sing in a distinct tune.

Another wolf came and this wolf was flying through scent of rhythm which my eagle had just sang out in it’s distinct tune, this is a special wolf which has magic powers, she now flies in the winds with an eagle, who that us to fate.

I see a garden in the distance, with 2 gargoyles on either side of a big gate, which surrounds the Garden of Eden. She-wolf flies down my whirlwind to be by my side and eagle follows as we enter the Garden of Eden. This is a peaceful place, centre of the psyche but the east, side of the garden the scent of Rocelin is strong and filthy with sludge. We will nuke that skull. I jumped off my horse and told the wolves to separate and hide from Rocelin’s power. As I walked to the east side of the forest the garden became filthy, my nose turned with the stench, so I griped firmly onto my sword and I walked into the central source of Rocelin’s soul. First I looked her in the eyes then decided to killed the filthy witch with one stroke of my two edged sword she fell to the ground while she-wolf lashed at her waist the grey wolf hoped in afterwards with effort. “Hay Ho the witch is dead the rotten old witch, the witch is dead, hay ho the rotten old witch is dead!” I held my sword high in the sky surrounded with elk as the garden became rich and green again. New fruits, new life and new energy replaced the dead witch. She-wolf’s eyes lit up and howled with excitement she was so happy that she decided to fly up into the whirlwind and spread the news of Rocelins death to the stars.

That was planed by Lucifer. in the garden I decided to sleep under a tree, I laughed to my self as the wolves feed on Rocelin, everyone was happy again, I took off my armour and waited for the goddess to come take my sword. Goddess arose in the Garden and held my sword with a muscle. Roses grew all around my naked body. An Owl perched above my head and dropped a envelope on my lap signed by Rama, the holder of collective wisdom. I decided that I would be better off tackling that after my sleep. Goodnight.

Riding The Whirlwind (incomplete) By Michael John Oates

If you have been keeping close attention to the news and how this world has been taking course in the last 100 years, I think you would agree that it has been very interesting. It has shown us figures like Hitler, Elvis have all touched us deep within and have had great impact of the way we live our lives. There are many other strong images that will have unconscious impact on us like Caesar the strong Roman leader, someone we all consciously know and look at with respect, Satan the biblical figure who was once Lucifer but become Satan the very angry, on edge intense sort of character. All of the above figures live deep within their personalities and can be accessed at will. We call these metaphors of the collective unconscious. Every year a new figure will be added to the collective unconscious, how they get there is unclear but it goes something like this. First of all a metaphor will begin as a personally metaphor which soon branches out into the collective, many few metaphors make it that far. They all travel whirlwinds and connect to the whirlwinds which interact with that personal metaphor. I sometimes wonder how many world wide created metaphors have travelled the whirlwind into universal unconsciousness and also how many more metaphors there are.

My Child

My child
I have you in my arms
As a little one held tight
Carried securely through the stresses of your life
From darkness into light

Nothing can change the love I have for you
Rest in my love
Close to my heart
For nothing can change the love I have for you
Find your rest in my unfailing love.

For nothing can change the love I have for you
Find your rest in my unfailing love.
