Icke moved to Ryde on the Isle of Wight in Icke had begun to flirt with alternative medicine and New Age philosophies in the s, in an effort to relieve his arthritis, and this encouraged his interest in Green politics.
Within six months of joining the Green Partyhe was given a position as one of its four principal speakerspositions created in lieu of a single leader. That year he discussed animal rights during a televised debate at the Royal Institutionalongside Tom ReganMary Warnock and Germaine Greer and in his name appeared on advertisements for a children's charity, along with Audrey HepburnWoody Allen and other celebrities.
He read the book, then wrote to her requesting a consultation about his arthritis. During the third meeting, on 29 MarchIcke claims to have felt something like a spider's web on his face, and Shine told him she had a message from Wang Ye Lee of the spirit world. The spirit world was going to pass ideas to him, which he would speak about to others.
He would write five books in three years; in 20 years a new flying machine would allow us to go wherever we wanted and time would have no meaning; and there would be earthquakes in unusual places, because the inner earth was being destabilised by having oil taken from under the seabed.
As he stood in the circle, he had two thoughts: His body shook as though plugged into an electrical socket, he wrote, and new ideas poured into him. Then it started raining and the experience ended.
He described it as the kundalini a term from Hindu yoga activating his chakrasor energy centres, triggering a higher level of consciousness. There followed what Icke called his "turquoise period". He had been channelling for some time, he wrote, and had received a message through automatic writing that he was a "Son of the Godhead", interpreting "Godhead" as the "Infinite Mind".

Shaw changed her name to Mari Shawsun, while Icke's wife became Michaela, which she said was an aspect of the Archangel Michael.
Icke wrote in that he decided not to visit his daughter and had seen her only once, at the request of Shaw.

The information was being given to them by voices and automatic writinghe said.
Los Angeles would become an island, New Zealand would disappear, and the cliffs of Kent would be under water by Christmas. Wogan introduced the segment with "The world as we know it is about to end".
Amid laughter from the audience, Icke prevaricated when asked if he was the son of God, replying that Jesus would have been laughed at too, and repeating that Britain would soon be devastated by tidal waves and earthquakes.
Without these, "the Earth will cease to exist". When Icke said laughter was the best way to remove negativity, Wogan replied of the audience: They're not laughing with you.
And there it was coming true. As a television presenter, I'd been respected. People come up to you in the street and shake your hand and talk to you in a respectful way.
And suddenly, overnight, this was transformed into "Icke's a nutter. It was a nightmare. My children were devastated because their dad was a figure of ridicule.
Wogan apologised for his conduct in the earlier interview.
