It is with
great pleasure that I provide a reference for
David Oates. I met David over a year ago and
since then have come to know him and his work
quite well. Further, it has been a source of
great satisfaction for me that I have been able
to help David with financial backing and general
that his work is of the highest importance -
breaking entirely new ground and with significant
implications for the way we understand and
utilize our human capacities for communication.
These are large and sweeping statements, however,
I speak from personal experience. David has
carried out reverse speech sessions with all
members of my family. The results have been
extremely illuminating and they brushed aside any
final vestiges of old-fashioned skepticism, which
my engineering and commercial training caused me
to carry. Equally, I have followed his work in
association with counselors in Queensland, where
the insights and messages uncovered during
therapeutic sessions have been of great benefit.
single-minded and relentless in his pursuit of
the field he has developed. I have been struck by
the fact that he never rests content with any new
insight or addition to his technology. Every time
that we speak, he seems to have something new to
report. A year ago, David had evidence of Reverse
Speech and various theories that he was pursuing.
The progress he has made since then has been
little short of staggering.
delighted that groups in the U.S. are showing
enthusiasm for Davids work. It is my view

dissemination - of the subject.

John Oates has made one of the great discoveries
of all time. He has proven that mans true-Self
speaks in reverse. He has documented and
developed the art, science and philosophy of
Reverse Speech. He is in a class with Thomas
Edison, Nicola Tesla, Albert Einstein and
Alexander Graham Bell. David John Oates, like
Bell, shortly after he invented the telephone, is
confronted by many who are excited about his
great discovery but are still asking, What
practical use is it? I am amazed that
anyone would ask such a question. My prediction
is that Reverse Speech will revolutionize all
aspects of human life. Most importantly, it will
help us become truly congruent - saying what we
mean and meaning what we say. This is the basis
of integrity and real mental health. If anyone
deserves world-wide recognition, its David

counselor makes of it with the client, can help
the client achieve a depth of self understanding
never before achieved outside of some hypnosis. I
have used Reverse Speech in counseling psychology
and am very pleased with the results.
Speech is a major breakthrough in communication
brought about by rather recent technologies which
promoted its discovery. Although Reverse Speech
will revolutionize communication as it now
exists, we are only seeing the tip of the iceberg.
As the various levels of speech communication
unfold through the work of David Oates and
others, we are only beginning to understand the
applications for this phenomenon.

impression of Reverse Speech was one of intrigue.
Many people within my medical practice had spoken
to me before about their intuitive nature and how
it had informed them on one level or another
about events of daily life. For me, I was
interested in the possibility of helping
individuals through Reverse Speech uncover their
deeply unconscious motives that may be guiding
their particular patterns of behavior and illness.
Thus, I cam to Reverse Speech with an open mind
thinking of it as another possible tool in which
to share with patients in their journey towards
had any prior acquaintance with David Oates, I
embarked with my wife on an initial taping
session to discover first hand what possibilities
lie ahead. We shared basic day to day type
concerns regarding office practice, marriage, etc..
David took this half hour taping and proceeded to
spend the next three to four hours dissecting it
in reverse. What he found and what he revealed to
us as a result of our half hour conversation
fascinated us. He began to speak about some of
the unconscious reasons as to why things were
happening. My wife and I did not discover
anything radically new, but we were fascinated
how a person who did not know us could be so
insightful as to who we were.
Thus, I began
to share with patients my experience with this
process called Reverse Speech and some began to
look into themselves. They too experience,
somewhat incredulously, the fact that Reverse
Speech could unravel aspects of their inner
psyche by merely listening to their tapes in
informational value of Reverse Speech, I then
began to question the therapeutic possibilities
of actually helping people break these
unconscious patterns of behavior in their lives.
David is working with this very thing and has
spoken of helping individuals with various types
of difficulties. Personally, I cannot comment as
of yet as to the therapeutic value because I
await the results and feedback of my patients.
However, I am very excited as to what may lie
ahead in Reverse Speech. Given the feedback and
results I have seen thus far, I think great
possibility lies within the realm of Reverse

been difficult for you concurrently to develop
the technology and to protect it from a few who
want to exploit it without giving you the credit
you deserve and without apparent concern about
the significant ethical issues involved in its
gestation of Reverse Speech Therapy has been
long, I urge patience and persistence in
continuing the high road that you have selected
to bring it into the mainstream of mental health
and commercial applications. You have long
recognized the important ethical issues inherent
in its use. What we have all underestimated is
the resistance to give this technology a fair
assessment. This is, I suspect, the predictable
fate of any new technology that threatens to have
a profound impact on existing belief structures
and behavior. The fact that it is simultaneously
simple in application and penetrating in effect
makes it appear suspect and dangerous. Dont
give up on it, focus your effort to a few
important areas. There will be a day when it will
be broadly used and its importance recognized and
appreciated for the degree of truthfulness that
it ushered into society.

discovery of the phenomenon of speech reversals
as a communication of thought from the
unconscious mind could bring an historic change
in the political and legal arenas. In politics,
the additional information about a politicians
thoughts give n by speech reversals could alter
dramatically the way that politicians conduct
their election campaigns and other public
speaking, and perhaps the typed of people who
decide to enter politics. In the criminal justice
system, speech reversals could be a powerful new
tool for police and prosecutors, and for defense
attorneys, to gain additional information in the
investigative and trial stages of a criminal
matter. In both civil and criminal litigation,
the testimony given by witnesses is almost always
crucial to the outcome of the case. If it comes
to be widely accepted that speech reversals
represent a means to obtain information from the
unconscious mind that cannot be consciously
altered or falsified, then hardly any major
lawsuit will ever be tried without making the use
of analysis of witnesses speech reversals.
On the one hand, this may increase the cost of
litigation. On the other hand, however, the
increased ability of both parties to investigate
the facts, and the greater pressure on witnesses
to tell the truth because a falsehood may be more
easily discovered, may in fact shorten many
lawsuits, and may keep some lawsuits from ever
being commenced. If speech reversals are what
David Oates research seems to indicate -
communication from the unconscious that can be
understood with some degree of accuracy - then
this discovery represents a tremendous advance in
our knowledge of the human mind. Perhaps more
importantly, the discovery will cause
revolutionary change in the political and legal
arenas, which lie at the heart of the manner in
which we organize our society. All those who love
truth will welcome that change."

Wow! What a
discovery! Reverse Speech will completely change
life... make that reverse life...as we
know it. It allows no skirting of issues, no
denial, no escape from reality. Reversals go
straight to the core. It exposes our hidden
unconscious programs, personality quirks and
behavior patterns. It snaps us out of oblivion,
finally giving us a choice of action again. In my
opinion, there is no tool in existence that comes
close to the perceptiveness or efficacy of
Oates is a genius of our time. He has revealed
the essence of individual and collective human
nature. Anyone who chooses to use this tool when
deciding on a business partner, employee or a
course of action will have the winning edge. It
is the ultimate Truth Detector. And if the world
is ready for it, Reverse Speech will be used by
the leaders and innovators in every field from
psychology to medicine, business to law
enforcement, athletics to the stage within the
next few years. I firmly believe that anyone who
doesn't use this tool will be at a great
disadvantage in the twenty-first century."

7 Figure Internet Marketer
After a life full of health issues I was diagnosed with breast
cancer in November 2004. Straight away I was hesitant towards
the conventional treatments, but didn’t have the right
alternatives at hand and was scared to miss out any healing
opportunities, especially as I was pregnant with my first child
at that time. So I agreed to the suggested treatments and within
the next 3 years I had chemo, radiotherapy, antihormone
treatment and in total 3 operations. I am convinced that I only
survived all of this for so long because of a great homeopathic
doctor and the mix of holistic therapies like kinesiology, reiki,
anthropomorphical ones like mistle-toe and healing eurhythmy and
a great deal of constant positive thinking. But even though all
these holistic therapies might have helped to keep me alive,
they also weren’t able to cure me.
In summer 2008 after my third operation, a severe
post-operational infection and still loads of metastases in the
skin I was told by the doctors that I was totally therapy
resistant as there was nothing that had really helped until that
point and therefore there was very little hope that anything
would help me in the future.
By fortune I had got hold of contact details for RS months
previous to the operation, but somehow hadn’t got round trying
this strange sounding and at first sight pricey (its worth every
penny!!!) new form of therapy completely unknown in Germany.
Being desperate and apparently running out of time I finally
took the step to first contact Pat Nightingale (practitioner in
UK and by now a good friend) who quickly decided after her first
findings to transfer me straight to David Oates.
With the RS the most amazing journey to the very core of my life
long health problems, my unconscious mind and even my soul
The damage in my unconscious mind and soul were shockingly
severe. The reversals of the first session already revealed why
I was resistant to all healing: I was not running one, but 7
self-destructive patterns – I was running on total
self-destruction. But on the same tape another reversal stated
“reverse will sort it” which was telling me that from that
moment with RS I was finally on the right path.
It was a lot of work to be done and horribly painful to work
through all the issues and facing all the horrible pictures
coming up in the metawalks. Also at first all the work we were
doing weekly didn’t show on the physical level, but my physical
symptoms brought me right to the edge of dying, but when I had
reached that edge the most amazing turn around took place.
I got a phone call from David and he was really excited. Even
though I was in such a horrible physical state for the first
time a tape had shown just positive reversals which showed him
that we had reached the turning point. Just the next day I got
my first good blood results! From that moment onwards the
tumours in the skin started shrinking, my wound that had been
open for months started healing up, the pain I had from all the
bone metastases went, my breathing recovered and the water in my
lungs started to go down. That physical process was certainly
helped by a treatment my husband had done with me with MMS and
DMSO and the work of the doctors of the clinic I was in at the
time (the immune-biological Hufelandklinik).
Suddenly it all came together. Since then I am constantly
recovering, the tumours are nearly all gone and I am gaining
strength every day.
I strongly believe that I had to make each and every experience
I made, but I also know that I wouldn’t be alive anymore if I
wouldn’t have met David and his RS wouldn’t have prepared me to
accept healing. I always see the picture of my life being like a
train track and I am like the train driving along. The train
track I was taking was a dead end one, but David worked the
switches and led my train onto another train track – the one of
I am so grateful I have met David at the right time in my life

ability to heal…
help with finances and couldn't seem to get it together with
money. If you took all my cash assets and business liabilities,
there was a major shortfall. I was surviving very basically on
business turnover. David and I did some reversals and trance
later, I have reduced that shortfall by 75%, my business now
turns over 100K a month, I own an aeroplane I paid cash for, I
have had two great holidays and am off to America in November. I
now buy good clothes, food and goods and live really well. It is
impossible to reverse time and try all this without David's
help. However, if I could I am sure things would not be quite as
abundant! Sometime soon, I would like to consider some more

for making available the wonderful technology of

the cutting edge for any personal awareness

core beliefs about myself was truly mind altering
and above all, outstanding!!
I have been
involved with many forms of growth awareness
techniques, but none that was as enlightening or
allowed me to make the changes as easily and
effortlessly, as with Reverse Speech. The fact
that I was able to see, hear and have an
understanding of what I was telling myself, and
not have to rely on another persons perception of
what he/she "thought" I was saying, was
absolutely invaluable to me!! It gave me much
greater sense of myself and to trust myself even

now know that I will not be passing those on to
the next generation.
ability to create a safe environment for me to
acknowledge and see the darker and not so
wonderful parts of myself was tremendously
helpful to me, and truly helped me from going
into a denial state. Thank you for your trust and
caring as I made my journey into the deepest
depth of myself. I have never had so much fun on
my pathway through life and that memory will stay
with me forever!! I certainly gave myself a
powerful gift when I chose to work with you and

Marshall, Personal Management
I first met
David John Oates, the founder of Reverse Speech
Enterprises, in September of 1995. Since then, I
have attended two of his introductory lectures,
three of his weekend classes, and another
informal practice session. Additionally, I have
received either seven or eight private sessions
from Mr. Oates where Reverse Speech techniques
premise of Reverse Speech is a fascinating one:
that while the conscious mind expresses itself in
ordinary forward speech, the subconscious mind is
able to use those sounds in reverse to also
express itself. While I myself am still a novice
at hearing recordings of speech played in reverse
and picking out exactly what is being expressed,
I have found that when Mr. Oates or one of his
more-experienced trainees guide me, I almost
always can then hear the reverse message clearly.
Should the basic premise, on further research,
prove to be true, it could be one of the most
exciting breakthroughs in the history of Western
In my private
sessions with Mr. Oates, it does seem to me that
the reversals that he has found on cassette
recordings of our conversations hit me with a
certain subjective jolt, and that that jolt is
the jolt of truth. Almost invariably I change
states of consciousness during out reviews of the
tapes, and usually those changes are accompanied
with new insights about what is buried deep
within my own mind. Whether it would be possible
at some time to take objective measurements of
voice tones and inflections played in reverse and
somehow translate them into meaning is an issue
that I cannot at this time make a statement about.
But in my case, I can say that I have experienced
what I will call a subjective truth upon hearing
and experiencing my own reversals. I am convinced
that these reversals are, in fact, coming from my
own subconscious mind.
As a result
of the private sessions that I have experienced,
I have found myself to be more aware of several
deep issues within my own life. I have been drawn
to certain religious writings that I had not
previously studied. In meditation, I have had
better access to the depths of my mind, and I am
definitely more in touch with the core issues of
my life. I see some evidence within myself that
my conscious and subconscious minds are working
more in harmony than they did previously.
I do not
believe that there is one path down which all
true seekers must walk. But for some seekers, the
technology of Reverse Speech offers and exciting
and significant path toward self-discovery and

potential has directed him to ensure that Reverse
Speech is presented only in ways which preserve
the integrity of this promising new discovery.
This alone has not always been an easy task.
introduced to Reverse Speech through a friend,
and I, as most people who first come into contact
with Reverse Speech, was simply amazed with what
this process reveals. Whether it's the uncensored
truths of the subconscious mind, or the
structural and operational metaphors that
determine our behaviors and attitudes, Reverse
Speech is the bright new star on the horizon of
humanities search for self. Man's imagination
will be the fertile ground upon which Reverse
Speech takes root and grows. The possibilities
are endless. The revelations are pure. The
results are enlightening. Reverse Speech is a
journey back into the Garden of Eden, where truth
and knowledge await those who seek it. If this is
your quest, Reverse Speech is a doorway, and
David Oates is holding the keys. Enjoy your trip.
A rich reward awaits us all.

such deep trance work. I really enjoyed them.
It's nice to know that transforming what seemed
like "the never-ending battle that would
never end" doesn't have to be painful.
Now that my
"life-problem" has been handled, I can
get on with my life.
I actually didn't think it could happen, I'm very
glad I was wrong.

that I had been waiting for this for a long time.
I had explored many approaches to listen my inner
voice and realized that here, finally, was a way
for me to get a direct line.

a shock or recognition. I knew that it was me
speaking. My reversals told me things I knew at
the deepest, and quietest, level of my being. I
spoke my own truth. My reversals were

As I continue
to grow and unfold I am increasingly awed and
grateful. I have increased respect for the depth
and power of the unconscious mind. I am
recognizing with renewed awareness the profundity
of even the most seemingly superficial human
interactions. Reverse Speech has given me a
glimpse of that much larger realm of being human
that we might call Spirit.
I have had
the privilege of being a private client of David
John Oates since September 26, 1995. I was
referred to David by my former osteopath who
sensed that I had some major unconscious blocks
to my healing. I was poisoned from ingesting
contaminated L-Tryptophan in January of 1990, and
my life has been a downward spiral of constant
pain, illness, abandonment, medical bills,
insurance hassles, and maltreatment from dozens
of various "professionals" in the
medical field since such time. This brief
background of my life circumstances is what led
me to open my mind to work with David on an
the cover story article on David John Oates in a
holistic newspaper last September, l went to hear
a lecture he gave in San Diego. I went intending
to only stay briefly, as my pain level is such
that it makes sitting for extended periods
difficult. However, l sat mesmerized in my chair
for the entire three hours, and at the insistence
of the awe-struck, eager crowd, David generously
gave us an extra hour of his time and expertise.
From the first moment I saw David and heard his
genius discovery of Reverse Speech, I knew that I
was destined to work with him.
Art, I have
been seen by some of the big-name doctors at
prominent research facilities up and down the
West Coast. Not one of them had given me any hope
for healing from my life of pain and misery.
David, on the other hand, has given me genuine
hope for a pain-free life by working with me on
an intimate, deep, unconscious level. David has
demonstrated extraordinary integrity in working
with me, and for never quitting on me when many
other "healers" had. Despite the fact
that his discovery of Reverse Speech is of Nobel
Prize caliber, David remains a humble,
approachable man of great character and depth.
honored to work so closely with David, and I
commend you, Art, for hosting David on your
prominent radio show so that he can spread his
amazing technology throughout the world. Reverse
Speech reveals the truth, and the ramifications
of David's monumental discovery can be used for
tremendous good in the world. On a personal note,
l am overjoyed to report that I am finally begin
to heal myself of "expert" deemed
incurable illnesses. David John Oates --
remarkable man and gifted therapist-- deserves
all the credit for this miracle.

heard in my Reverse Speech session was new to me.
The Reversals were more akin to soft whispers of
truth that have been rubbing up against my
consciousness, and hearing and reading them was
merely an exercise in recognition.
discussing the Reversals with David, I was
curious and attentive. I absorbed his
understanding of my tape. But the days since have
been the real story: Through my Reversals, my
Soul has spoken to that part of me heretofore
disconnected with the Divine. My soul pinpointed
what was keeping me from my own salvation,
clearly outlining how my conscious mind was
guiding me into a hell of my own making.
My life has
been spent ever-reaching for my next step of
growth: yearning, really groping, for yet another
level of self-understanding. And this strong
sense of self has been a beacon for many and a
firm foundation for my own peace of mind.
session, I've been working less and less at
feeding the fire of my own growth - settling back
into an observation and appreciation for the
development of those around me. Am I affirming or
judging? Allowing or demanding? I'm trying now
merely to get myself out of the way so that
whoever I'm with can find room enough to be. Hard
work for me.
Reversals, my Soul warned that I was living only
half of the Golden Rule. I've not been loving
others as I love myself. The imbalance is my own
appreciation for my strength, my potential, my
complete dedication toward self-development - The
imbalance is my arrogance around others, my
subtle disrespect for their Soul's place beside
me, my disallowance for folks as they are without

serving the god of my own worth. The very thing I
believed was saving and developing me for God is
the exact cause of the rot and despair I've
always felt kept me from complete surrender to

my Soul from the inside out. I've been an
obstacle - to others, myself, and to God's
calling in my Soul.

testimony is requested by Reverse Speech
regarding the effects of Reverse Speech in my
life. I am a chiropractor, age 55, and I had been
struggling with my practice to get it to expand
and grow, but I hit a certain plateau. Since
having Reverse Speech analysis work done on me by
David Oates, starting in November of 1994, my
life has changed in some very significant ways.
First, I am
much more calm and relaxed; second, I find it
more easy to focus on my work, even in times of
much distraction. As a chiropractor, I can have a
number of problem cases affecting me at the same
time, with patients with various kinds of problem
in the office and it is much easier to stay calm,
cool, and relaxed.
I have found is my patient volume has increased
for the time expended. This was one of the
problems David worked on, and it has improved. So
my life has improved, I feel better, I am more
focused, and my income has increased.
I use the Reverse Speech Dictionary for working
with my patients, utilizing a Neuro Integrating
Concept Erase method (NICE methods). I have found
the Dictionary to be extremely accurate in
assisting people to clear off charges on Reverse
Speech metaphors and in solving some profound
problems that people have emotionally. This work
has helped on patients as well as on myself. The
dictionary is incredibly accurate and a great
tool in helping people.
can highly recommend Reverse Speech work to
assist people in breaking through barriers,
discovering problem that they didn't know how to
resolve, and getting quick solutions to those
problems so they can get on with their lives and
accomplish more and feel better.
WILCOX CHIROPRACTIC CENTER
I decided to
do session work because - being a student of
Reverse Speech - I thought I needed the
experience. I wanted to improve my memory and get
rid of my fear of speaking in public, my fear of
being in the spotlight. Shortly after my first
trance I felt major shifts taking place. My
memory improved considerably and amazed friends
pointed out to me that I say whatever and
whenever I wanted to. It felt so natural to me,
that I haven't even noticed the difference!
I soon found
out, though, that those points were only the tip
of the "iceberg of change". Here are a
few more points that changed along with my
- I am much more grounded. I take full
responsibility for my life and all my actions. I
am centered, focused, goal oriented. I can see my
life's purpose clearly and know which actions to
take to fulfill it.
- I have claimed my power - of which I was afraid
of for so long! That means I can be who I truly
am. Thus I am not afraid anymore to open my heart
completely. I am overpouring with love and
compassion. I connected with the Goddess inside
of me. I am more in touch with and more aware of
- My psychic abilities have increased to that
extend that I have to really be careful of what I
think because it does come true!
- My intuition increased immensely. I not only
know what to do but also have the unshakable
confidence to follow up on it. I am more in touch
with my soul, with the "higher reality".
It is like surfing on a " higher wave of
consciousness", everything is clearer, I
know what I want and what I don't want. This is
even true for my physical body that became more
sensitive. And I became more sensitive to its
needs. My eating habits have improved and to my
great surprise I realized that instead of frozen
yogurt I now crave carrot juice...
- I am more energetic, more creative, I am more
self secure, more joyful, more peaceful, life has
To sum it up
I could say that I cut off the chains that kept
me from being who I truly am. And best of all, I
didn't have to do anything! It happened "overnight",
so to say. Friends noticed my change first.
"You look so different! You are so radiant,
you look so happy, your eyes, how they sparkle!"
For me it is such a natural state, that I hardly
remember how I felt before the session work. And
to be frank, I don't have the slightest desire to
recall my existence before Life began!
Speech is a new technology that reaches to the
tap root of the psychic. Having experienced the
process, I can attest to the power and
profoundness of the changes in my own life. It
untangles the neurotic structures of outdated
belief systems and empowers the individual to
make beneficial changes on all levels of living.
Its great advantage is the relatively short time
involved to make lasting changes compared to
years of counseling in which the subconscious is
glimpsed but seldom spoken or listened to
directly. The integrity of the method is the ego
and beliefs of the facilitator is set aside and
the subconscious of the individual client is
directly accessed to give the information on the
changes needed to heal the individual by their
own subconscious. I highly recommend this
paradigm for all those who want fast lasting
changes in their lives.

"I had a
very bizarre pattern in my life that continually
sabotaged my efforts to improve. Whenever I told
anyone about it, they thought I was making it up.
With Reverse Speech I was able to see exactly
what was going on and why it was going on. In
four months time I completely transformed a
situation I had been working on for 20 years."
