Sean David Morton had his first visions as a child when he predicted the death of a man that was like a second father to him, astronaut and American hero Command Pilot Virgil I. “Gus” Grissom. Gus, one of the original Mercury Astronauts, thought by many to be picked to be the first man on the moon, was tragically burned alive with fellow astronauts Edward H. White and Roger Chaffee during a routine ground systems check on the Apollo 1 spacecraft. All three men were close family friends.
Sean’s Irish grandmother, Ruth Croft, was the only one to take heed of Sean’s many youthful visions and warnings, and encouraged his abilities in secret. From the age of 8 years old, Sean’s late mother, famed radio and TV personality and internationally bestselling health author Maureen Kennedy Salaman, became enamored of fundamentalist Christianity. While they lived in Texas they went to church six days a week.
When they were not in church, she put her son on a steady one hour per day regimen of Bible tapes that he was made to study and report on, everyday, 360 days out of the year (excluding a few holidays) until Sean left for college at age 18. This filled him with a scholarly knowledge of history, politics, religion, economics and all the mysteries the Bible had to offer.
At age 12, however, Sean began to study astrology, palmistry and tarot in secret, having to keep his occult studies from his fanatically strict religious mother, but using these tools, and with the help and guidance of his Irish grandmother, his intuition and skills began to increase.
At age 16, his family lived in Cairo, Egypt, being some of the first Americans welcomed in to boost trade and commerce as Anwar Sadat’s regime turned from the USSR in the East to the United States in the West. It was there that Sean was deeply affected by his experiences at British International school, by the Moslem children he befriended, and, mostly, by the Great Pyramid of Giza. Spending the night in the Great Pyramid several times, and talking to Imam’s and Rabbi’s and Coptic Christian clerics, Sean began to see the great pattern, prophecy and grand journey laid out for all mankind by the most wondrous and mysterious structure on Earth.
While still in high school, Sean took Advanced Placement and then later summer school classes at Stanford University. It was here in a basic psychology course that he became involved with a series of rudimentary experiments conducted by the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) that would later become known as REMOTE VIEWING. Years later Sean teamed up with Dr. Elizabeth Targ (daughter of Dr. Russell Targ) and perfected techniques in using Associative Remote Viewing to predict stock and commodity prices and to win at games of chance, such as roulette. Dr. James Spottiswood did his Ph.d. thesis on their work while at Stanford. Sean would go on to teach his own version of the technique, called Spiritual Remote Viewing (SRV) to people all over the world.
In the spring of 1977, while studying at the University of Southern California, Sean became heavily involved in Erhard Seminars Training (EST), then in the summer, between his freshman and sophomore years at USC, Sean lived in Lake Tahoe with Himalayan Master and Hindu holy man Swami Sri Jaya. He taught Sean palmistry, Hatha Yoga, deep meditation, lucid dreaming, hands on healing and how to see and read auras and the living fields around all life.
Swami Sri Jaya began to help hone Sean’s natural gifts and abilities. It was also in this period in Tahoe that Sean and Swami-Ji spent personal time with EST founder Werner Erhardt. Through college, Sean continued his study and practice of astrology with his “Dutch Uncle” Carl Roles, the personal astrologer for the Beatles, and then personally for George Harrison, and meta-physics with childhood mentor and former NASA scientist and contactee Dr. Fred Bell.
Sean was also part of the inner teaching circle of world-renowned UFO contactee Dr. Hal Wilcox. Sean graduated from USC in 4 years with a BFA in Performing Arts and a BA in Political Science. He was also only a semester shy from full BS degrees in Astronomy and Organic Chemistry.
In late 1985, after making a small fortune in the stock market, working in the film business and as a part time disc jockey and running a pair of successful HEALTH HUT fast food franchises and becoming partners in the wildly successful downtown LA nightclub VERTIGO, Sean saw the fast paced vapid and empty LA lifestyle destroy most of his friends. After a series of personal heartbreaks and traumas, Sean packed a bag and a stick and travelled to England, Ireland, and then India (for the Kumbha Mela festival) and, lastly, Nepal.
In England and Ireland, Sean became involved in a series of on-going quests revolving around The Meonia Stone saga, an ancient mystic jewel said to have been in the hilt of Excaliber. From there he travelled to India, to spend time with the sages, yogis and babas at the Kumba Mela in Hardwar and Rishakesh. After this he traveled to Dharmsala, the current home of the Dali Lama and seat of the Tibetan government in exile. Sean lived there for several months, working at the orphanage as a teacher, immersing himself in Tibetan Buddhist classes, teaching and philosophy.
After a personal and life-changing meeting with the Dali Lama, Sean was instructed by His Holiness to travel to the T’ang Boyche monastery in Nepal for further study and training. He arrived there in late May of 1986. Based on recognition from a past life there, he was accepted as a novitiate by High Lama Rinpochi Lopsang Tundun. Here Sean studied healing, deep meditation, tantric techniques, Tibetan exercises, ceremonial dance and spiritual time travel.
Sean studied and trained there until returning home in December of 1986. But not before a prophesied meeting with an Ascended Master in a waiting area of the Delhi Airport, who taught him “The God Force Meditation” which Sean has now taught to thousands all over the world.
In 1990, Sean traveled the world again as part of the documentary crew and co-writer/co-producer and co-director for the series UFO CONTACEES, collecting over 600 hours of interview footage with scientists, researchers, contacees, abductees, and anyone seriously connected to the UFO phenomenon at that time.
Desperately trying to help the world and fulfill the vow he had taken in the monastery to “Work for the Enlightenment of All Sentient Beings”, Sean desperately tried to find a way to bring his ability to foretell the future to a greater audience. He formed The Prophecy Research Institute and began publication of his award winning “DELPHI ASSOCIATES NEWSLETTER” in March 1993. This began a spectacular run of 16 years of continuous publication, and a stunning string of successful future predictions in print. He also became the number one guest on the number one late night radio show in the world COAST TO COAST AM with ART BELL and later with GEORGE NOORY.
Also, throughout the 1990’s, Sean continued to stay in practice and hone his skills as a personal, private intuitive consultant and by working for a number of “PSYCHIC” telephone hotlines. Though most of the calls from the TV ads cycled through the same “boiler room” Sean was featured on the Kabrina Kincaid and Dion Warwick TV commercials.
In 2005, Sean received his PhD. doctorate in Therapeutic Psychology and counseling from the International Institute of Health and Spiritual Sciences in Montreal, Canada. Sean attends a yearly summer school studies program with the Astrological Sciences Institute at Exeter College, at Oxford University. It is taught by leading astrologers in the world, and helps Sean keep up to date on current software, theories and developments in the Astrological field.
