In Observations on W.D. Gann Vol. 1: Periodicity is where Awodele first reads a little known Gann article from 1919. In this article, Gann makes some predictions about the German Kaiser, Wilhelm Hohenzollern, and provides some details as to how he made his predictions. Continued study and work on the contents of the article led to the publication of Awodele’s first book entitled, W.D. Gann: Divination By Mathematics.
It was in February of 1997 when I met my most influential spiritual teacher. A friend took me to see him for the first time during one of my breaks from classes. On the first visit he divined for me using an oracle system, performed a numerology reading on my date of birth, and told me things about myself that were quite astonishing considering that this was the first time we had ever met. I was fascinated and it sealed a friendship that has lasted ever since.
During the remaining part of 1997, which included my senior year of college and the start of graduate school, I would continue to go to his office to visit. He would always pass along books, notes, and material that he had picked up along the way to see if I resonated with any of the information. I loved it all, but will never forget the document he gave me with the title Spiritual Development written at the top. It was a copy of some handwritten notes dated November 2, 1975. There was no mention of the lecturer’s name, but more importantly, the subject matter stimulated me like nothing else had before. I was captivated. The main theme of the lecture dealt with cycles, and how the sages would learn to live in harmony with natural cycles. It talked about how the sages used cycles to their advantage. This lit an inner fire in me to learn as much about cycles as I could.
As my interest and study of cycles grew, I obtained my first book on astrology during this time. Although this first book was on Vedic Astrology, I have studied many forms of astrology over the years. Naturally, studying subjects such as cycles and astrology, I eventually came across the work of W.D. Gann. William Delbert Gann was born on June 6, 1878 in Lufkin, Texas. In his promotional booklet issues in 1954, it says that he made his first trade in commodities on August 15, 1902, but his fame spread as a result of the December 1909 Ticker and Investment Digest magazine article written by R. D. Wyckoff, who was owner of the magazine at that time.
In this article, Gann talked about “The Law of Vibration”, and how it enabled him to accurately predict the points at which stocks would rise and fall. Numerous examples are given in the article where Gann predicts that a stock would not go higher or lower than a certain price. It goes on to say that in the presence of a representative of the Ticker and Investment Digest during the month of October 1909, Gann made 286 transactions in various stocks during 25 market days and that 240 of the 286 transactions were profitable. It said that the capital with which he operated was doubled ten times so that at the end of the month he had 1,000 percent of his original margin. In Gann’s promotional booklet entitled, Why Money is Lost on Commodities and Stocks and How to Make Profits from 1954, it records the following:
” 1 908 May 1 2th left Oklahoma City for New York City. August 8th made one of his greatest mathematical discoveries for predicting the trend of stocks and commodities. Started trading with a capital of $300 and made $2 5,000. Started another account with $ 1 30 and made $ 1 2 , 000 in thirty days time.”
Here we have an individual that could forecast the movement of stocks months and years in advance, and his ability to do so was well documented. After reading more about him and his work, I was intrigued, and set out to learn as much as I could.
In this book, I wrote a chapter on periodicity, which was personally for me, one of my favorites in the book. In that chapter I was able to show how Gann may have derived key periods in the life of the German Kaiser, Wilhelm Hohenzollern. Interestingly, during my continued research, I found another example in Gann’s work that matched the same procedure Gann may have used to derive some of the key periods in the 1919 article. Thus, one of the main goals of this small booklet is to simply share what I found. It has always been my intention to publish additional books to get some of the ideas that I have been contemplating out in the open, but I didn’t have enough information on a particular topic to fill a three hundred, two hundred, or even a one hundred page book. With this in mind, I realized that I could publish small booklets in a series of volumes, each focusing on a different topic to achieve my goal. So this is what you will find in this publication, a small booklet on the topic of periodicity, which is the first volume in a series of volumes on observations I have made with respect to Gann’s work. It is my hope that the reader will find something valuable within these pages to further their own research and study.
