We have a lot of news about sexual harassment and sexual predators, people – mostly well-known men – who are charged with misusing their positions of power or influence to harass others sexually. Because it has been easier than usual to isolate these incidences and charge the people with these abuses, it has been very easy for many people to jump on the band-wagon to condemn and judge those who are singled-out.
The trouble is that the problem has a deeper core. On the surface, we can easily imagine and see how these harassing incidences play out. We can also understand how people can take advantage of others. We have been doing this to each other for millennium after millennium.
But, in looking at this, I’m seeing a deeper issue and cause that is across the board – human related – rather than just being isolated incidences. I’m seeing sexual harassment on the job as only a symptom of this deeper human-wide issue.
What I see is that the issue is not about sex and power. It is about respect. It is about whether we respect other people in other situations, in other circumstances of life, in other genders, other religions, other cultures, other races. The question is put to us – do we respect others?
It’s easy to say, ‘well, respect has to be earned.’ No, it doesn’t. No infant has ever been charged with ‘not deserving respect’ because they haven’t yet earned it. No child has ever been labeled in school – “undeserving of anyone’s respect because they haven’t fulfilled anything deserving it”. We don’t say at some point, ‘they’ve now grown up, and we can decide whether they’ve earned respect or not.’
As human beings, we don’t think about these things, but in the back of our minds, as family and friends of those infants and children, and without thinking, we hold some level of respect for them automatically. That level is usually based on the amount of respect we generate in our own heart for human beings in general.
As souls, we are innately born into existence with respect from the Father/Mother God. As souls, we recognize the reality of each of us having our own parcel of the Godhead within our own existence and spirit. We are all sparks of the Infinite Consciousness of God, and from this Infinite Consciousness of God comes respect as well as the other Spirit Qualities of Love, Compassion, Mercy and others. These qualities reside within us waiting for us to express them outwardly towards others. By the very nature of our existence, we are children of God and innately are already deserving of respect, and called to give respect (as well as deserving of love, kindness, mercy, etc. – then called to give love, kindness, mercy, etc) by our very existence. Yet, we don’t always automatically receive them from others or give them to others.
As human beings and spiritual beings, we are already deserving of Love, of mercy, of kindness, etc., … and of respect. But, across the board of all human existence, we can see where we fall extremely short on giving that respect, or love or kindness, etc. to others.
When we actively work to respect another person – consciously – we treat that person so much better. We work to not harm them. We work to be kind, generous and merciful to them. We work to forgive them, to support them and to offer them as much of the best of ourselves whenever they need it.
When we actively don’t respect someone, it becomes so easy for us to demonstrate that lack or small amount of respect through abuse of all kinds, harassment, insults, condemnation, judgmental criticism and every other means to demean them and look down on them. It becomes easy for us to charge them with “no longer deserving respect’. When we choose to not respect, it becomes easy to mistreat and abuse them. When we have little or no respect for another person or group of people, it becomes easier for us to enslave and kill them. (When we have little or no respect for others, subconsciously, we can have little or no respect for our self.)
We usually have in our individual minds and hearts that measuring stick which we hold up to them and say, ‘they don’t deserve respect because…’. The reasons are vast and numerous. They don’t deserve respect because of . . . their gender, their race, their religion, their lack of religion, their social status, their occupation, their age, their spiritual beliefs, their country of origin, their education, their location, their behaviors, their lack of behaviors, their affiliations, their past, their present, their future, their X, their Y, their Z and on and on.
Look across the board to all humans and look for some person or group who is giving respect to every human on the planet. Not someone who is “saying” I give respect, but rather someone who is giving that respect without being asked. Look far and wide, because when we are honest with ourselves, and respecting what honesty really is – and the level of honesty within ourselves – we will find all of ourselves wanting and failing at respecting all others. Many women (and men) have been on the receiving end of sexual harassment. All human beings have been on the receiving end of being shown little or no respect. All human beings have also been on the giving end of ‘little or no respect’ towards another individual or a group (and ourselves.)
For myself, I can think of only 1 man who, in His heart, mind, and soul respected each and every human alive – albeit all life. And while He may have chastised and warned people against those who said one thing and did another, when it came to His end, He recognized the respect all deserve as children of God in His words of equality and humility -“Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” In essence, saying “Father, they are deserving of forgiveness. They are deserving of mercy. They are deserving of the Love You have for them – even that Love through Me. They are deserving of consideration, of patience, of encouragement, of all You have to give, … and they are deserving of respect… even though they don’t know it or take it on for themselves to bestow it to others.” He saw then, and He sees today, all of us as His equals deserving all that God gave Him and all God has to give.
Every effort we make to change our own ‘lack of respect’ into ‘respecting’ moves us one step closer to creating a better world for all people. It could help if we remember His words, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do”, and take them on for ourselves to bring into the world towards others and to ourselves. In a world one day filled to the brim with our respect for one another, (and other qualities), then we will have Peace on Earth and Goodwill Towards All Men and Women (and all life).

2018: Looking Ahead, Going Within
Dec 31, 2017 to Jan 1, 2018:
From Sunday morning, Dec. 31, 2017 to Monday afternoon, Jan 1, 2017, please join myself and others gathering for the purpose of discussion and meditation for the new year – 2018. Many happenings are being foreseen for 2018 as well as the future years, and I will offer several sessions discussing this. We will also have silent and guided meditations including a meditation joining others around the world. We will bring in higher energy to help begin 2018.
“2018: Looking Ahead, Going Within” is a smaller ‘24-hour’ event. Hopefully, it can be the 1st event of some small, quick, and easy-access events. This event has one overnight. The sleeping over for one night allows for a later Q&A session, group gatherings, and planning a midnight meditation (Edgar Cayce recommended 2am being the ideal time, but that’s hard to do.) For those interested, overnight dream incubation covering 2018 will be included. Discussion of dreams will happen the 2nd day. (Sharing a dream is up to the dreamer and never required.)
24 hours is quick. Because of this, Camp Capers costs (for meals and overnight) can be minimal with easy access to San Antonio, Austin, Blanco, Kerrville, Fredericksburg and nearby areas. Still, the concentration of the program might make the time intense. Because it is shorter, we can relax some, but we will still have a scheduled itinerary. In addition, if another person would like to present something about 2018 at this 1st event, please come forth. So, there are possibilities.
Registration deadline is Dec 14, 2017. To register, send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I need the number of people, the number of people per meals each desires, and your choice of rooms/beds. By Dec 15th, Camp Capers requires (A) the number of people for each meal, ( B) the number of each rooms/beds.

What information did I leave out? What questions did I not answer about the retreat?
Love is of the soul. The soul has both masculine and feminine. Both of these are capable of and regularly incarnate into a physical body. AND! because the soul benefits and grows from the enrichment of different experiences, the masculine and feminine can both incarnate into either the same or opposite gender bodies. We have such a diverse potential within this Earth to manifest and experience that we can create opposite gender experiences in order to develop greater understanding of the human experience.
Hence, why we create gay, lesbian and transgender experiences in our world. The diversity of experiences related to these can help souls learn. This doesn’t mean that being gay, lesbian or transgender will be forced upon a soul (unless karmic law is in effect). It means that each is a viable and useful incarnated experience. It also means that the feminine in a male body and the masculine in a female body is an available Earth option, should one wish to experience it.
Love is of the soul. We can experience love in opposite physical bodies than the gender aspect which manifests. Since love is of the soul, it is possible to love beyond the physical – to the soul. Those we’ve loved in a past life, can still be those we love in the current life. Still, freewill is active for both souls in such a reunion, and this does indeed give chance for either joyful or painful reunions as human beings.
Forgiving one’s enemy changes one’s enemy. Not changed in front of our eyes, but in front of time’s eyes, which is where we were changed, also, when we were forgiven. (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2017, Jodie Senkyrik)
Do you have a winter forecast for the US for 2017-18? A.K.
First and foremost, you’ll always find me writing that the meteorologists/scientists who are involved with predicting weather, are valid in their research, understanding, and predictions. This is true for the short term – one season, as well as the long term – decades ahead. The science is valid and worthy of serious attention and response with regard to Climate Change, Global Warming or whatever any of us calls it. When examining these statements against any who oppose them, look more at the hearts of the individuals, and what anyone’s hearts cause to come out of one’s own mouth. Weigh that which is within one’s heart and look for this one’s agenda and motivation.
The US has a variety of weather areas and each one will be somewhat different. I’ll add also that the weather is like a stairway, each level is dependent on the previous level. Each “stairstep” builds itself off the previous “stairstep”.
The Southwest: last year was warmer than average. This year is going to continue this pattern. Dec and January will be comparable to last years, with only slightly colder temperature. February will see the 2 middle weeks being slightly colder than last year, but warmer than would be called “average”.
The Southeast: I see a dryer winter for the S.E. for all 3 months. I also see higher temperatures than would be considered winter temperatures. This is for the 1st 2 months, then some colder weather in February, than in the Dec and Jan months.
The Northeast: There’s no escaping the cold weather in the N.E. I see frozen temperatures – solid frozen. I see an average amount of snow. While Dec will come in weak, January will be windy and cold. February will be frozen cold, but warmer temperatures will come in earlier in March than years past.
Midwest: The M.W. is going to get hit with cold wind. Lots of snow will cover the plains regions. This is getting to be a new normal winter for this region. In future years, there will be very few winters that are not like this. Except for a slightly warmer 2018-2019 winter, all other winters for this decade will be COLD for this region. Absolutely this will affect crop growth.
New England area: December is when winter usually starts, but all meteorological predictions for November are already in and they predict cold in the Autumn month of November, also. December will be much colder than November. January will be a full-blown winter weather for the region. February will be disastrous with serious winter weather related problems. I see ice, wind and water problems.
Western US: For the most part, this region will not strongly experience serious winter weather. January will be slightly colder, but still not a hazardous situation. February will be slightly colder, but again, not serious and more closer to average.
Pacific Northwest: This region will experience what could be called an average winter. It will be slightly colder this year than last year, though in all 3 months. However, Spring will come in earlier for this regions – close to the end of February.
Western Central states: (Utah, Colorado, Wyoming and surrounding areas) Again, meteorologists have mentioned cold fronts coming in November, and I would add this will build in December. There will be MUCH snow in the regions – for those who ski. The cold fronts coming through will cause temperatures to dip into icy temperatures. Much of the snow will turn to ice as the winter continues into January and the 1st 3 weeks of February. Again, I’m seeing an earlier than normal spring with regard to temperatures. The last week of Feb. will see temperatures rise, but there will be some late cold fronts in April and one in May, though not as bad as if it were Jan or Feb.
There will be a few anomalies this winter.
New Mexico will have several weeks of arctic temperatures in mid-January.
Eastern California will experience some warmer than average temperatures in the High Sierras overall. The winter temperatures will hinder the fires, but not stop them completely. A remnant of one fire believed to be burned out, will start up again in late November in the lower Sierras south of Yosemite, north of Kings Canyon Nat. Forest.
Tennessee will experience a pocket of warm weather with the Sun breaking through the clouds, in the midst of a cold front that would be happening all around them. It won’t last long. (1st half of January)
Any other “anomalies” are so insignificant and small that they could be considered normal, and so I won’t bother with them here.
I’m ready for questions.
“Prayer and meditation changes things fundamentally and deeper than politics could ever reach.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2017, Jodie Senkyrik)
“We will have no changes in this nation, if we have no prayer. Change will only come with prayer.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2017, Jodie Senkyrik)
“We will have no changes in this nation, if we have no mercy, no understanding, no patience extended to others, or no forgiveness. Change comes when we bring these qualities alive within us.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2017, Jodie Senkyrik)
Spiritual law exists and is fulfilled. This is immutable, but it can vary as to the many methods it can be fulfilled. The spiritual law I’m referring to here in this example is – “The experiences we give others are the experiences we give ourselves.” This means that those experiences we put others through will be the experiences we put ourselves through (not always by choice). This is law, commonly called karma, but can also be known as the law of creation.
The vast majority of fulfilling events for this law are not manifested all in one particular lifetime, but rather in other lives we’ve lived or will live. In fact, looking only at one lifetime very few spiritual laws and principles appear to be true. Looking at the same laws and principles in the context of each soul living many lives, things start to make sense.
With the horror that happened in Las Vegas, we can see great suffering happen to many people. Even more people suffer from learning about this event afar – via TV or the News and the like. As sorrowful as it is to say this, these events too are fulfillment of law.
No, the people as they lived their lives this time around did not deserve this. No one ever deserves this. But, these things are bound by law to happen. And the soul from whom these things come – great woe, suffering and pain is theirs and sometimes for thousands of years both in physical form and outside of physical form.
The Bible tells us through various wordings, roughly, “everything we’ve ever done to harm or cause suffering, we must clean up.” Every i must be dotted and every t must be crossed. This means that every experience we’ve ever created for someone else to experience, either we will experience or we must heal and dissolve. Every ripple in time we create, will return to us. This is the fulfillment of the creation of experiences which exist within an Infinite Consciousness – of which all of us are a part.
Yet, this law is not in place to punish. This law has no judgement of any soul, even though we may project judgment into it. This law exists to help us raise our vibrations to the vibration of Infinite Love.
You see, these events like the killings in Las Vegas, can be healed, resolved, dissolved, and dismissed long before they ever happen. The purpose of all things is to raise our vibration to the level of Infinite Love. The simple truth is that we can raise our vibration to the levels at which these horrific events can be removed from having to manifest.
The how is as we’ve mentioned many times before – through those acts that raise the vibrations in the Earth – prayer, meditation, forgiveness, mercy, compassion, long-suffering, patience, charity, kindness, Love, and the other fruits of the spirit.
Any event, both horrific or wonderful, has its own vibration. The vibrations of prayer and meditation, love, kindness, forgiveness, mercy, patience, etc., are a higher vibration than these destructive and harmful events. Higher vibrations have a greater power than lower vibrations and can greatly impact energy that otherwise is destined to manifest as suffering – like the event in Las Vegas.
Our prayers, our meditations, our efforts to bring forth the fruits of the spirit from within our own hearts and onward into the Earth, are the ways to heal souls and heal the energy of our past created experiences which are still waiting to find the appropriate channel to manifest.
These acts can be healed through prayer and meditation – for humankind. But, without prayer and meditation, these acts will manifest. As I’ve said before, the more prayer, the more healing. The more meditation, kindness, forgiveness, mercy, compassion, understanding, patience, support, charity, long-suffering, cooperation, tolerance and love – the more healing.
If we look for proof that this law is possible and in effect, we will find none that is suitable. No physical proof exists of a non-physical reality. The physical reality is the reflection of the non-physical reality. No reflection ever offers any substance of that which it reflects. No part of a reflection in any mirror has physical substance of that which is reflected.
Yet, we live each day with the choice to pray, to love, to show mercy and compassion towards others for their own sake, knowing inside our very soul that these things are worthwhile, and are needed in a weary, weary world in order to bring that world out of the manifestation of those destructive acts which we created lifetimes ago, yet haven’t yet healed.
We can heal events like the one in Las Vegas, before it happens. We have already done so much healing. Events destined to manifest, have been dissolved and healed. We need only keep on keeping on with this work.
Where do we see God in natural disasters?
In the spirit of those who respond to help.
Where do we see God in politics?
In the spirit of those who pray for all who are taking on the tasks of governing.
