Program Information: 2018 – Looking Forward and Going Within

It doesn’t always benefit us to know what possible futures there are, if we don’t know that we can help bring a better future, change a harmful future, or don’t know the best and most effective ways to change the future.

Many times, people have asked me what to do when they get a psychic premonition of a possible problem, disaster or harmful future. My answer is always the same. These events come to us, so that we take steps to help heal, avoid or change the event. We cannot always take physical steps to change a harmful event, but we can ALWAYS take spiritual steps – through prayer as well as sending light through either meditation or other methods.  We may not be able to stop a harmful event completely, but our prayers come with energy to transform the event like a high vibration tuning fork affecting a low vibration tuning fork.

The Feb 10-11, 2018 weekend retreat will help us explore the paths set before us and help us practice the steps which can potentially change paths for the better for all, even if we have differing opinions of what is better.

I have psychically seen the future change many times through our spiritual work and effort. Many paths that had been forewarned about have been changed. Events which had been foreseen have been healed and dissolved through efforts before these events manifest.  In essence, the Light can dissipate the imminent dark clouds.

You are welcome to join us February 10-11, 2018, in learning more of what we can do to help ourselves, friends and families, and the world in which we live by sitting in a comfortable position, closing our eyes, going within, turning our minds to the heavens and raising God’s energy in the world through meditation, prayer and understanding.

5-6pm: check-in on the patio of the office building for overnight attendees.

To Believe or Not to Believe

We are at a time in our world, with technology, politics, social media and “everything else going on in the world”, where we sometimes don’t know what’s true or what isn’t. Very “loud” conflicts are happening with people on each side claiming the people on the other side are disseminating fake news. The “noise” level is so loud, that it can be very easy to not know what to believe or who to believe.

Now, in a “seeming” change of topic, at last count, there are more than 7.3 billion people on this planet. Of these 7,300,000,000 people, there are no two who are exactly alike. Because we’re different, because we’ve experienced different things in life – all through our life, we, therefore, have experienced different experiences, met different role models, mentors and teachers, felt different feelings, and thought different thoughts about and through all our lives. I mention this, because there are no two people who believe 100% exactly the same in all things of life. So, therefore, all 7.3 billion of us believe different things to be either true or false.

We may not know what is true, but so what. Our own dogged search for the truth via our seeking it from God can be chosen or not chosen per our own freewill.  7.3 billion people believe different things are true. Throughout all of mankind’s history, this has never been the actual source of the problem – beliefs being different. Having different beliefs has always been the way life is, anyway. It’s not a problem, because it’s not the cause of problems. Believing different things are true, is not a problem.

The problem is with how we relate to our beliefs, and therefore, motivate our own actions. In other words, what do we do with our beliefs? What actions do we take regarding our beliefs?

This is where problems arise. With different beliefs, do we choose to bring forth cooperation with others or do we choose to create conflict with others? Do we use our beliefs about what is true or not true to feel an underlying compassion for others or instead an underlying condemning of others? Do we use our beliefs to bring pain and suffering into people’s lives, or do we use our beliefs to motivate us to offer mercy, understanding and tolerance?

The issue is not what we believe, but what we do with our beliefs. Our actions and behaviors – how we relate and respond to others – determines how we walk in this world. It’s possible to believe exactly opposite than someone else, but with both people choosing for themselves to be kind, tolerant and compassionate, there will come to be peace and respect among them. We know people in our lives now, who believe differently than we do, but because they choose to show kindness, respect and patience, we enjoy their company. And there are people in our lives who we may believe so very similar, but yet they choose their behaviors towards others in such a way that we can’t wait to leave the room when they’re in it.

How do we use our beliefs? To help build separation and animosity, or to help build mercy and unity? We can profess to have the highest of beliefs, and even believe that “we know the truth”, but our behaviors and actions will speak more truth than our mind will hold or our mouth will speak. Our behaviors can become so loud, that no one can hear what we profess, anymore.

Actions speak louder than words, and our actions that we demonstrate – loving kindness or condemning judgment – are what shows how we relate to this world full of people. It is truly possible that billions of people can live in peace… and even with different beliefs.

Still, you may believe differently than this, …

and God bless you for it.

Hawaii’s Future

For those of you who went through the tremendous missile scare in Hawaii, this is what I’m seeing:

1. I see people feeling much fear and it being in the ethers right now – fear of a missile launch directed at Hawaii potentially being a possibility in the future – a fear which was unconcious for so very many people in Hawaii and the US. This fear has been made conscious through the warning system mistakes. It doesn’t take a psychic to know this, but it is psychic information, also. This is currently a strong fear. Let this also be a time for prayer for the people to find their peace again.

2. I see No missile striking Hawaii in the future. I do see N.K. firing missiles into the air still, upsetting countries around the Pacific Rim. But I SEE – no launch of a missile from N.K. or any country with the intention to destroy Hawaii or parts of Hawaii.

3. I see clear skies for Hawaii for 3 decades. I see then a much bigger than normal eruption of their “constantly erupting” Volcano. I see it being preceded by a dormant few years (volcano) which causes a buildup of pressure. This dormancy will forewarn when the time comes for a greater volcanic eruption.

4. Through prayer and meditation, the energy that would manifest as the Volcanic eruption in 3 decades can be transformed into a higher level of energy manifesting as social eruption caused by the lack of dealing with social problems. (See Venezuela) Again, 3 decades from now – mid-2040’s.

5.  Some, including children, will manifest some levels of PTSD.

Update on “2018: Looking Ahead and Going Within”

Some attendees desire to come in to Camp Capers Feb. 10th, Saturday afternoon staying overnight instead of arriving early Sunday morning – Feb 11th. We still have the Health Services rooms available for this event plus the cabin bunkhouses. The Lodge (hotel-like) rooms and the Retreat House are reserved by another group on Saturday night.

So, I’d like to offer that if anyone would like to come in Saturday late afternoon, staying overnight, I’m willing to come in ALSO Saturday afternoon, Feb 10th and add a Saturday evening portion to the program. I would want at least 5 more people to come in Saturday evening to stay overnight. With this change, registration and check-in is from 5pm to 6pm. As of right now, we have 2 more Health Services rooms housing up to 2 persons each, (4 total) $62 if only 1 person or $52/person if there are 2. But then the remaining would be in the cabin/bunkhouses at $31/person. As always, the rooms are a 1st come/1st serve basis.

Saturday and Sunday morning meals will be available, without our needing a minimum number of attendees (12 people minimum). The Saturday, Feb 10th dinner is scheduled at 6:30pm (the other group decided). The breakfast is at 8:30am (the other group decided.)

If we get at least 5 more people, the event registration for overnight guests would be 5-6pm at Camp Capers on Saturday, Feb 10th. The dinner and breakfast would then be an additional option at $15/person for dinner and $10/person for breakfast.  Everyone’s lunch on Sunday is $13.

Even if we get 5 more, for anyone still only wanting to attend Sunday, and arriving in the morning, then I’ll have registration before breakfast, flexibly from 8-8:30am at the office front patio.

The tuition for 2-days is $40. (There would then be an additional room rental fee.) The tuition for Sunday only is $31 with Camp Capers charging a $16 “day use” fee.

As always, if you wish to pay by check, you can pay when you arrive, and it is still a good idea to register beforehand as soon as you know. C.C. needs to prepare many days before for the number of people eating any of the meals.

2018: Looking Ahead, Going Within reboot

Hello Everyone
I want to let everyone know that I’m rescheduling the “2018: Looking Forward, Going Within” retreat. I’m also trimming it to a 1-day event. This will be Sunday, Feb 11, 2018. I know this is different than the overnight event which I had hoped we could do at Camp Capers.

I have been asking within on how to move forward with this event (and even IF I should move forward.) I always get the guidance to “Yes, go with it.” But this time I felt my guidance was to go with a 1 day event – no overnight – begin and end on the same day. I know some of you who would have been driving a long distance won’t attend for this reason. I can only say that I hope you’ll feel it is worthwhile.

The itinerary will be
8am-9am: arrive and register
9am – noon: program with some freetime and breaks
noon -1:30pm: lunch and freetime
1:30 – 5pm: program with some freetime and breaks

We will have 2 30-minute meditations: 10-10:30am (joining with others around the world)
2:30-3pm – 12 Chakra guided meditation (times could be adjusted as needed)

Each presentation time will focus on presenting what I see as potential futures, steps we can take to change the futures, steps we can take to prepare for the futures, the inner work which will help us, and then deepening our understanding of the principles and processes at work in the world which we witness but don’t readily understand. Bring your questions and personal stories that you’d like to share.

The morning time frame will be 3 hours including rest, break, meditation and presentations. Lunch will be 90 minutes to give time to eat and check out the place.
The afternoon time frame will be 3 1/2 hours including rest, break, meditation and presentations.

The fees are as follows
$16 Camp Caper attendance fee
$31 tuition
$13 if you want to eat lunch at Camp Capers (optional)
Total $60 (includes lunch)

If anyone would like to attend, but would then want to stay over Sunday night at Camp Capers, arrangements can be made.

Again, if you’d like to attend and pay by credit card, you can use the “Buy Now” button below. If you’d like to attend but pay by check or cash, you may pay when you arrive.

Buy Now Button

The flexible deadline for letting me know if you’re attending (for me to turn in the number of people eating lunch at Camp Capers) is January 29, 2018.

I welcome all of you, and know that this is a change from the original event.

If it helps any, Camp Capers is a 30 minute drive from San Antonio (depending on where you are.) It is 45 minutes from Blanco, TX. About 90 minutes from Austin.

I did seek guidance and did examine why I would be supported to offer the original event, then set it up, only to have the weather affect it – causing me to postpone and reschedule. What I saw and still see is the message and information stating – This process serves to demonstrate again that the time is now when the weather will disrupt people’s lives more and more – moving people away from that which was considered normal and readily able to be handled. The weather will move people to a point requiring people to learn new ways to adapt to the weather which will continue to “worsen” (“worsen” when compared to the past.) This is one example of disrupting weather and there are more weather problems to come.

I still like the 24-hour scenario of offering 1-night overnight retreats. Yet, I don’t want to compete with the Fall Mo Ranch retreat and the “Palestine” Spring retreat. If I continue at Camp Capers, some of these may happen on Sunday/Mondays or Friday/Saturdays, or perhaps during 2 weekdays. This is because Camp Capers is very popular for weekends.

God bless you all and have a safe January.

Postponed: New Year’s Eve 24-hour Retreat – “2018: Looking Ahead, Going Within”

Due to worsening weather and a possibility of freezing rain in some parts of central Texas causing possible dangerous driving conditions, and other potential problems, I’m postponing this retreat until a later date. Some of our attendees have long distances to drive. Attending a retreat should not be an endurance test or a gauntlet…. (and for the most part ‘yes’, but I was still hoping.)

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 has passed, but it’s still possible to register and attend.  To register, send an email to me at jodie.1@earthlink.net.  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 required (A) the best estimate for the number of people for each meal, ( B) the best estimate for the number of each rooms/beds.  Credit cards can only be accepted through this blog Paypal button below, and will not be accepted at the door.  Checks, Money Orders or cash can be paid when you arrive.  To register, send an email with your information to jodie.1@earthlink.net.  To pay by credit card, please use this button:

The Button will lead you to pay through Paypal, and you do not need a Paypal account. You’ll see the Paypal login page, BUT scroll down and you’ll see the Credit Card payment link.  The Paypal Link page does not itemize the fees. Insert the total amount of your payment.

Information needed in email:
1.    Overnight? Or 1-day?    [$40 overnight or $25/day]
2.    Which room you prefer?  If all the H.S. rooms are taken, you’ll be assigned into a bunkhouse. [Health Services rooms (4 rooms total) with 2 single beds per room @ $62/$52 or the Bunkhouses with many beds/room @ $31]  (When the day comes, there might be a few of the Lodge rooms available at $83/$72.  I’ll let you know when you arrive.)
3.    Which meals you want?   [Lu-$13, Di-$15, Br-$10, Lu-$13]
No one will be turned away at the door for not registering beforehand, but IT SURE HELPS IF YOU DO, (so we can give Camp Capers office an accurate number of people to prepare for.)

What information did I leave out?  What questions did I not answer about the retreat?

Sexual Harassment?

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).
