Choosing our freedoms (or freewill, whichever word we use) is important to Americans, also to Texans, and even to people in the world. His freedom to choose was also something Christ sought when He prayed, “Father, take this cup away from me.”
However, His prayer was not “God, help me no longer love You or them anymore”, which is also a freedom we humans can and sometimes do choose of our own freewill.
Freedom and Love MANY TIMES do oppose each other – like when we must choose one or the other. Which is the most important if freedom is our reason to no longer love? Yet, sometimes, when they conflict, choosing love (instead of choosing freedom for our self) is the factor we invoke, like choosing to donate an organ to help another, or choosing to spend our money on our children rather than ourselves when we choose their well-being first, or when our actions are to benefit all people and not just to benefit our self, like Christ, when He prayed, …
“Yet, Father, let not my will, but thine will be done in me.”
And we find that Loving God and our neighbor is a freedom no one can take away from us. We will always have Infinite Freedom to Love.
When reading psychic predictions, watch for when different psychics agree on topics and the outcomes. These topics and predictions have the highest chance of being accurate, but don’t discount the predictions which only 1 or 2 psychics predict. Each psychic has areas in which we are more able to focus and give accurate predictions. Each psychic has areas of better accuracy.
With my predictions pages, each year’s predictions also hold predictions of further into the future. So, go back and reread previous years predictions also since they may have something about this year or next year.
(Within the body of these predictions, I use blue lettering to show possible assistance with the predictions. At the end, during the QUESTIONS part, I use different colored lettering to show different people who submitted questions for these predictions.)
We are in times when greater effort to stay on one’s spiritual path, to keep working at one’s spiritual studies and practices, to practice loving kindness, forgiveness, mercy, patience, compassion, aware of long-suffering, WITH CONSCIOUS INTENT when responding to life’s challenges and problems – is important and will help. We are in times when it is important to “Be true to our own heart.” It is a time to try again, whenever we “stumble and fall,” with our intents to manifest Love. This, and only this, will bring us into the New Age of Mankind on Earth, with our Higher Selves as the potential ever-stronger guide helping us through our Earth plane challenges.
Our Human Family
The Family of Man is still a family regardless of how embattled we are. Remember, as with all life – for the human race, also, no darkness can extinguish the Light. It is the Light which, when manifested, with effort, can light up where it has been dark. And when the Light is increased, those who have been afraid, and blinded in the dark, can be found and brought to Peace, Compassion, and the Loving Warmth of the Spirit of Infinite Peace, … Never-ending Compassion … and the Loving Warmth of the Light who’s Infinite Love has no conditions whatsoever.
This Time in Existence on Earth
We are at a stage equal to a mother having contractions rushing to the hospital to give birth. A New Age of Mankind is real and is coming. This will be visible through the changes in how we work to find ways for all people to live their lives on this planet – ie. less war as the way to solve problems. More effort to negotiate and find ways to get along. People will come forward saying, “We need to find ways to work together to find solutions to these problems” instead of what we have today which is “I’m not working with them to solve anything.”
Meanwhile, we have entered the 6 years of low energy, dark energy, less light energy, less love energy, I’ve been warning about. 2020 showed us the level of difficulty and pain that we’re going to face (in ebbs and flows like the tide, sometimes better, sometimes worse) over the next 6 years. Many different events will contribute to this, but as I describe in the previous paragraph, and as the previous paragraph shows in words, – with a transformation and a change of heart within us, and A WILLINGNESS WITHIN OUR HEART to choose a better response to one another, we will find ways to help make all of our lives better – and during this next 6 years – making our lives better one day at a time. Either we can accept the darker atmosphere of the times and repeat them – or we can step up and willingly build the better way of living our life which we want to be in the world. In other words, we build the better heart-centered ways of living (relating to each person) or the destructive, conflict-motivated world’s ways of living (which we can see in so many arenas) will continue.
Never underestimate each prayer prayed. Never underestimate each time one stops and sits in meditation.
Added 1/6/2021: The future can be changed. Always remember this. We can change the road on which we’re driving, by changing our decisions and choices.
I’ve mentioned this before, that vaccines will be available to the general public beginning in the Spring mostly. Around the world, the process of vaccinating will go through the spring, summer and fall for the majority of those people who will step forth and get the vaccine. I’m psychically seeing the vaccine being safe and helpful. For one, it will help ease the strain on the psyche of people. Secondly, it will be effective …. for the vast majority of people. There will be a small percentage that have unique physical bodily circumstances which will make the vaccine less effective.
There will still be a vast majority of Americans who won’t get the vaccine, thus facilitating the continuation of Covid-19. I see the vast majority of future cases being with people who don’t get the vaccine. Because of this choice some people make, the spread will continue and there will be many who get re-infected. Without the vaccine, for many, each time a person gets infected, (and it is possible to be reinfected) the result can be cumulative, and therefore, worse.
Of the people living in the US, I see many reasons for why some people consider this a fight for individual rights. However, it’s not the fight people promote it to be. While some consider it the right to not believe what the government is saying, it is more the fight to have freewill, and say “NO!” Deep down, subconsciously this has little to do with the government. It has more to do with the fight for freewill and the right to consider worldly warnings (of all kinds) to be less important, and unconsciously perceiving that the opposition is not on the spiritual path, either.
This manifests as opposition to anything The Opposition promotes – and on the surface, it looks like the fight for the right to ignore education, ignore healthy ways, ignore the health of others, ignore the physical needs of others, ignore safety steps, ignore the need to diminish fear. But, deeper in the unconscious, it is the fight for the right to say “NO!” to other people who ALSO are not manifesting the spiritual principles of Love God above all else and love your neighbor as yourself. It is the right to unconsciously oppose anyone who does not have a spiritual center to their cause. ALL OF THIS IS ON THE UNCONSCIOUS LEVEL. It manifests as “I don’t know the best way, but it sure isn’t the way you promote.” While both sides unconsciously think the struggle is to do with the Earth and making it better, unconsciously they are motivated by the spiritual path calling to them, rather than an Earthly path calling to them. The call to the Spiritual path of the inner challenges is what all souls are called to answer. Yet, with Freewill, all souls have the choice as to when we answer the real call.
Again, on the surface, it appears like it is the song which goes, “It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to, cry if I want to, cry if I want to…..” As it has been for all of us at some time in our many lives, it is a statement to people and the world, “It’s my life and I’ll die if I want to, die if I want to, die if I want to….” And all of this is coming from the unconscious, that comes to the surface, manifesting as a fight against the authority which they see as also being inauthentic and false. See!? In the arena of governments, it is a fight against authority who is seen as being inauthentic – not true to oneself – being misled by an inauthentic spirit of judgment, criticism, condemnation, ridicule, and arrogance. To see this more….
In terms from the Bible, this falls within the story of the prodigal son, who leaves the father and family, taking off to fulfill his own desires. While the prodigal son is saying “No!” to be dutiful to the father and then leaves, the elder son stays at home, does what the father tells him, leading the life of the dutiful son. Meanwhile, the elder son feels resentment when the father kills the fatted calf upon the return of the prodigal son, the elder son feels cheated and betrayed by the actions of the father celebrating the 2nd son’s return.
The fight is for the right to not be the dutiful son (because it also is not authentic) – but rather the son that leaves others and takes off to fulfill his own desires. This is the fight for the right to serve one’s own self because of the inauthenticity of the other side – the elder son. This is the fight for the right to say that even the dutiful son has selfishness within him, and so there’s nothing special about being a dutiful son. A dutiful son has inner faults – is self-centered, too.
It is forgiveness, mercy, patience, tolerance and kindness, to the enemy who is not the enemy, which is what the race of people are called towards, and ultimately it is true – “If there is no forgiveness, (even of ourselves) there will be no Peace on Earth”. And to those that have ears to hear, the path of long-suffering is still one that is necessary to continue to walk.
The Covid-19 virus will be with us, going through the world’s population in large scale, until 2023, for the most part. The vaccines will bring the numbers down, but not to zero. Like the medicines for HIV and AIDS, the medicines and vaccines will get even better with time. We will not see the end of Covid-19 in 2021, but rather a lessening that comes with being vaccinated – with a vaccine that is not 100% perfect.
WEATHER IN 2021
The weather of the planet as a whole is now to be considered extreme compared to decades ago. This is now the standard to be expected. The natural disasters which we’ve seen are going to continue. There’s not much more I can offer with predictions, because for the most part, all over the planet, we now know what we’re going to face from here on out. So much of this that I share here, won’t be a surprise at all. Like I say, sometimes, you don’t need to be a psychic to see this coming.
The Northern Hemisphere: The weather patterns in 2020 are a close predictor of the patterns in 2021. What I see is, in the Northern Hemisphere, the changes will be that the arctic patterns which usually come down in certain patterns will shift some to the west. The ice sheets melting and the warming of the waters in the northern Arctic are causing shifts in different area atmospheric temperatures which triggers the forming of different pressure zones. It is these pressure zones which are strong enough to trigger shifting of wind patterns westward. The patterns will be similar to 2020 but they will be more westward in their paths and positions. On the planet, the arctic winds will bring lower winter temperatures than usual and somewhat earlier. The climate warming on the planet is like a pot beginning to boil. The more heat – rising temperatures – the more agitation caused by pressure. The more agitation, the more mixing and churning of winds and waters which speeds up the changes happening. This impacts everything.
As a result of these changes happening globally, the ocean floor is changing and shifting, as well. This is and will continue to be affecting the Earth’s mantle, which contributes to land/crust/mantle pressures which contribute to earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic activity around the world.
In the US, for the most part, the different regions of the US have now had several years taste of what to expect in the next few years, so there’s not much new that I can offer to prepare anyone. Expectations and preparations should be in place.
But even so, January and February, 2021, will have it’s share of winter storms, but the regular weather in between storms will not be that different from storms. I’m seeing serious cold temperatures, but not a lot of moisture in the western states. Cold temperatures but dry. I see people as they live their lives acclimating to the more severe cold – getting used to the fact that the weather is going to be more extreme. Extremes are becoming accepted as the norm. The dryness will affect the spring snow melt which usually provides water to the western states. With less snow in many (but not all) parts of the Rockies, this means dryer conditions during the spring and summer, which will lead to more fires for the western states during 2021.
The US Midwest, which usually counted at some point on intermittent relief from Arctic weather at different times, will experience longer freezing times. But, again dryer than usual. The New England states will experience solid below freezing winter temperatures and then a sharp and immediate rise in temperatures about mid-March. (But more freezing winter temperatures again, then, earlier than usual in November, 2021.)
The US summer temperatures will spike making it hotter! Again! Setting records again! No surprises there. And as people acclimate to the hotter temperatures, like the frog in the boiling water, little will motivate those who don’t want to be motivated with respect to supporting any steps to curb human behavior contributing to global warming. However, the feelings of these being drastic times will prevail. (Hurricanes are mentioned under “Natural Disasters”)
By doing very little to change our current state, we are guaranteeing that children born now will see the climate crisis be many times worse than today. How much worse? Imagine summer drought and temperatures 9-11 months out of the year.
Across continental Europe, 2021, I see more rain in large amounts – not spread out but more rain in shorter time periods, causing flooding in some places where flooding is not expected. This is a general statement, and Europe is a large area, but Europe as a whole will be dryer. This seems contradictory, but it isn’t. Dry over time with short times of dumping of lots of rain.
The spring of 2021 will be India’s worse weather time in 2021 because of the massive rain, and the rain bringing the massive numbers of mosquitoes, which brings more disease. I see Covid surging again helped by the weather. Even with the promise of the vaccine, India will be overloaded with people getting infected with more than just Covid.
In the Southern Hemisphere, we’ll see more warming of the Antarctic waters. One doesn’t need a psychic to see this happening. It’s already happening and will continue. What I see: the warming of the waters will cause stronger currents in the Antarctic area as warm and cold waters mix. I see this happening at greater depths. This will trigger more “churning” of the waters in the ocean currents at greater depths. This churning will continue to impact ocean currents all over the world, which will speed up the rate of warming as waters of around the world mix with each other more. This will also trigger a slow but consistent change of the ocean’s floors and landscape. All of this will affect ocean life of all kinds.
Australia will have a very dry winter, come May, June-August. Drought conditions will happen again. Each year of the 2020’s will bring more drought for Australia. At the end of the 2020’s is when I see drought conditions lessen.
Added 1/3/2021 – Covid-19: I see Australia as a whole plateauing with infection numbers now until mid-February (a little bit of a rise, but for the most part on an unsmooth plateau) and with efforts, and vaccines, I see your national numbers begin to slowly go down in March thru April then a little more in May. Slowly go down with cause for optimism being recognized especially during the summer. But, not having the numbers end altogether for a few more years. However, it will be much better, and more medicines coming out – including more vaccines during those years. Australia’s main challenge/hard issue – the ones that generate tension and aggravation besides politics will be the climate crisis throughout most of Australia, for the decade – drought conditions, and fires again especially in 2023-2024. As always, I see prayer helping – especially helping people to cope. Around 2028, drought conditions will become less. I see the Australian people being determined, and some technological enhancements bring forth some help where water is concerned. As the decades progress, you will see even more technology help with acquiring water from the oceans and some from the atmosphere. Meanwhile, life goes on and you will see conditions for Medical workers become less stressful on the whole, for the medical personnel throughout Australia, in the 2021 summer, then more through the end of year and into 2022 to the end of 2022. I see a vaccination rate eventually reaching to a mid-90’s percentile rate. I recommend programs for the instruction of meditation for medical personnel. And, like I say, the more prayer and meditation, the more help and change.
The Middle East
During the summer, there will be temperatures in the 120’s again. A few more heat records will be broken in 2021, and in subsequent years afterwards.
I’ll add more areas, as people request these areas to be looked at, but there’s not much more I can add that isn’t already recognized to be part of the climate crisis, and therefore expected.
In general, the Earth itself, as a whole, is getting warmer and the weather patterns will become more erratic, even noticeably more erratic in 2021 than was in 2020. Climate change is real. If it were not, I would be able to see that it would not be. Instead, I see that it is.
As I write this, I’m more aware of the need for good news. The good news comes from ourselves – we make our own good news by taking actions to counter this trend. If we don’t make any good news of our changing our individual behaviors and in turn, collective behaviors, there will not be good news. If we don’t act in ways that help, there will not be any good news. This includes the actions of praying and meditating.
So, I present what I have here to help people prepare for what is coming into manifestation. Remember, we choose the roads on which we drive. If the road leads to problems and we as the human race choose to stay on that road, we must face the problems which we have chosen to happen. No amount of wishing, hoping or magical thinking will change the road by itself. Remember the definition of the word, Insanity. In this case, it means driving down a road full of problems and thinking if we keep driving down this road full of problems, sooner or later it will change to not having problems. OR being out in the sun without sunscreen and getting sunburnt, then thinking that if we stay in the sun longer, then something will happen and our sunburn will go away.
I’m phrasing all of this in mostly harsh terms because – worse than the words I use, is the climate and weather which we will have. Prayer and meditation will always help. The more prayer and meditation, the more help. Prayer changes the weather, because prayer changes that which is human made. Ultimately, human consciousness effects the weather. Human behavior creates climate change.
World wide, the economies of each nation is related to how each nation has responded to Covid-19. Those nations that have been strict and disciplined in handling the pandemic will fair better in their economies. Those nations that have been less disciplined and have suffered greater outbreaks of Covid-19 will suffer worse economies.
The economy of nations will NOT bounce back quickly as the vaccine is distributed. In all of 2021, I see very sluggish economies in general. The economies are related to Covid-19’s spread and/or containment.
THE UNITED STATES
In the US, the vaccine will help as it is slowly distributed throughout the country. The economy will not spring back quickly, though. The economy will suffer, because there has been a non-strict response from the people, thus creating more avenues for the virus to spread. As the vaccine is taken, through 2021, the opportunity is present for businesses to start back up, but it will be as any other start up at a time when the general population as a whole, the people – don’t have money to spend. In addition, there will be many who refuse the vaccine, thus keeping Covid spreading.
People have mentioned herd immunity. I am looking at this psychically. What I see psychically is that for “herd immunity” by itself to be relied upon (without vaccines) with the human species and Covid-19, 1 to 2.3 billion people would die first. 40-50% of the people on the planet would be infected. This is what would happen if we only relied upon “herd immunity” to help us. Out of every 8 people, 1-2 of them would die- 1 to 2 billion people. Of those 6 still alive, (out of 8), 2-3 more would be infected. Those not infected would mostly be people not exposed to it. If every human being on the planet were exposed to it, the death rate would be 35% of the world’s population, 1 in 3 people. It would rise because many would be exposed several times, impacting them, making them weaker, with each time. The “herd immunity” would develop in about 40-50% then of those remaining alive. This is what I see psychically about “herd immunity”. (Think in terms of the last of the plagues of Moses. The death of the first born in all families.) The real problem with it, though, is that so many people who support the herd immunity path would expect death to happen to “other people” rather than themselves and their loved ones.
Europe’s economy will fair somewhat better than the US. With different social rules in handling the pandemic, they will have a different foundation for reopening their businesses. They are in different circumstances – with their regions being smaller. So, the pandemic impact on the economy was less in some of the regions which will act as a quicker starting point for reopening and thus reigniting the economy. While they also have experienced increasing numbers being infected, they are in better positions in combination with the vaccines, and thus can recover faster.
THE MIDDLE EAST
The OPEC nations will have a very slow economic recovery, because oil will not yet return to it’s previous economic demand levels. Traveling and commuting to work, as well as other driving situations will not return to it’s pre-pandemic high levels in 2021. So, the oil producing nations will not yet have the demand for oil. The demand will go up in 2022, but there will also be other factors which will be working against the oil industry.
Australia’s economy will also be slow in recovering. In the early 4 months of 2021, there will be no change in the Australian economy. There will be some effort to jump-start the economy at the beginning of May/June/July, but this will be less than successful because the people will not be “moving” the economy like usually happens. The Australian people will be cautious, and so the government’s efforts to bypass normal recovery methods will be only partially (small amount) helpful. At the end of 2021, the last 3-4 months, is when Australia’s economy will start improving. The people drive the real economy. The government only reports it.
Many governments, in general, all over the planet will be reporting better economies even though they won’t be better at the level the governments report. The governments report better in order to encourage people to spend. The economies will be slightly better, but one cannot have a healthy economy without the people driving it, and the people will decide for themselves when to spend – especially when people don’t have the money to spend.
Japan’s economy will have many higher highs and lower lows. They have worked harder to contain the virus and so this action will help in some areas. But, there will be deeper than normal cycles in Japan, when it is better sometimes and not better other times. Japan’s economy is one of the main economies in the Pacific/Asian area. Other nations will be and are now, being affected by Japan’s. As Japan’s economy sllloooooooowly stabilizes, this will help the other smaller nations’ economies.
India’s economy will be sluggish all year long, with hope only coming in the last 3 months of the year. They will be struggling with many diseases including stronger outbreaks of Covid. Remember, the people of India in your prayers, as I see much misery as India’s predicted scenarios manifest in people’s lives. The frontline medical workers will suffer greatly as well – not just in being infected but with seeing so many people, almost a seemingly never-ending number of people, needing medical help. I see the sorrow and suffering and ask for all who read this to remember the people of India in your prayers, and please let your prayers be often.
Added 1/3/2021: The economy for the Philippines is connected a lot to neighboring Asian countries, with some economic connections to the US. This means there will be more fluctuation than one might expect. The Pandemic’s effect on other nations in the region affects the Philippines’ economy. The Pandemic’s effect on the Philippine people has a great effect, also. Infection numbers are still on the rise slowly in the Philippines and I see this continuing with a plateauing happening March/April with the vaccines getting to the Philippines slowly. Getting the vaccines to all the people of the Philippines will be a slow process, but as time continues, by the end of 2021, will reach around 92% of the population. Slow, but it will happen.
In general, Nigeria is an active Nation with many aspirations and hopes. It is also a country that faces suffering from the sorrows of many citizens. It is also diverse in what each region provides to the people who live in those regions. I see constant efforts to grow it’s economy. I also see that with these efforts comes imbalances in societies’ arenas that are yet to grow. These imbalances causes some civil unrest which will happen at different times, mostly from people who struggle, but don’t feel they’ve been able to grow out of their life circumstances. I also see that there are some who seek to take what they want through terror and killing. There is sometimes a belief that the desired changes for a better society should come fast, but there is a lesson here and that is “anything built fast can be torn down fast.” and “anything built with patience and attention to all details will last a longer time.” This includes relationships and includes social change. There is also a belief by those who use death, that they can take what they want and nothing will happen to them. But, Christ said it to His own followers and it is true for all humans, “He who lives by the sword, will die by the sword.” While this truth is not always visible to humans, it is visible to God. It is true in all things. Those who live by selfishness will be remembered this way in death. Those who live with prayer, will be remembered this way in death. The prayers of many can help Nigeria. I can also say, unceasing prayers of a few can also help Nigeria. With each prayer, another moment in time is changed. With more prayers comes more help and change and growth. In addition, there is hope in all nations. There is sorrow and suffering in all nations. All human beings share all things that human beings are within themselves. May God be with Nigeria.
As the Northern African nations try to grow, with the hope of becoming a world player (united together as an African coalition) the pressure will be on Nigeria to make social changes – as will the pressure be on many African nations – with these social changes be to help the citizens of Nigeria. Slowly dying are the decades of days of any one nation being isolated and thus susceptible to harmful policies serving only few in power. But, these changes also happen slowly and can even take a generation or two, after the old ways (and some people) die off, in their turn, and new people, with different ideas and ways of living, come forth. It is a slow process, but a trustworthy process.
The stock markets around the world will remain active with trading. There will NOT be a downward depression-era-like spike which brings great disasters in any nation. There is active trading with the normal Ups and Downs. In 2021, we will see activity, but there will be a slow increase in the amount of trading. On the whole, there is anticipated hope and expectation, which will be driving trading. There is also much “talk” about disasters looming from pundits, but there will be more hope and expectation than talk of disaster. In the Autumn months of 2021, I see sluggish trading in the stock markets, because traders will not have seen a fast economic recovery which they believed would happen.
I DO NOT SEE any massive downturns in the economy which so many are warning will happen. I DO NOT SEE any economic collapse that many political pundits predict. I DO NOT SEE great political or financial armageddons or disasters brought on by the new administration. I DO SEE why people are saying that this will happen, and therefore I see the need for tolerance and patience, and for our understanding as to why they say this that they say, much of which is based on fear, …. and money.
These statements and beliefs of fear of financial disasters will slowly diminish somewhat from the people (not from the pundits) as months and a few years goes on and the fears do not manifest in nationwide and worldwide fashion. However, as the 2020’s progress, statements and beliefs of fear based on political results will continue, because, in all honesty, a lot of people are paid a lot of money to say we’re facing impending societal doom based on the political results — paid Lots of money — LOTS more money than people realize being paid to those who are willing to help sell the concept that doom, based on political results, is coming.
If any of us got paid as much money to sell “societal doom” as those hired to sell doom, we’d probably be selling doom, as well. The selling of doom is a business, and the doom business is booming, especially under the current political hostility and antagonism that people are choosing for themselves. It is the best time to sell doom – the early 2020’s. Many people are hired and paid good money with this “business”.
Meanwhile, the business of selling normalcy – things progressing as usual – doesn’t pay that well. After the adrenaline washes its way through the person, and all the excitement is over, and all the selling of their own particular brand, … then our lives go on. We keep on keeping on. We take life one day at a time. We breathe in and out. We wake up in the morning and go to bed at night. We get back to struggling to deal with our day-to-day issues and bills and all the things we have going on in our own lives. We get back to the basics of surviving and loving our families and friends. We get back to trying to find ways to help make our lives better and help make the world a better place than how we found it.
Human beings are versatile in finding solutions and persistent and dogged in living these livable solutions, even when inconvenient and “not pretty”. The solutions that work are the ones that we can “get our hands on” locally. Many small solutions will be found in the local communities rather than the Federal Government. The strongest arenas for economic growth, are in local economies. Human beings are creative, persistent, and don’t give up easily. This is best demonstrated and most effective through efforts in local communities. These qualities and the qualities of determination and believing in oneself and one’s God, will help people keep on keeping on. The collective effort of people trying to just live our lives, around the globe, will prevent any worldwide financial Armageddon.
While this is a niche market, it will remain a niche market and will not become a readily usable global currency. However, it will continue to be available for a few high speculators throughout the 2020’s decade. Still, it will remain at the level of being a novelty, or much like how stocks are traded, and not become the world currency that some people say it will. It is too volatile, has too many quicksand problems, isn’t “safe”, and cannot be stabilized. The collective consciousness of the human race will not partake of it on a mass consciousness level. The collective consciousness of the human race uses that which already works and/or that which enhances what already works.
Bitcoins will not be replacing paper currency and coinage. Paper money and coins are here to stay for decades and decades yet to come.
We won’t see very much change at the gas pumps in 2021, because the economy is going to be sluggish on the whole. This affects gas prices all along the supply chain producers, and so we’ll see a small increase, but for the most part, in 2021, they won’t move much.
WATER SOURCES (Sources and Quality of Human-use water)
2021 is not a good year for water sources for human use, worldwide, but all the problems with the quality of the water we use will go almost unmentioned because of all the other issues on the forefront of our attention. The amounts of usable water on the whole, will diminish in 2021, and so 2021 is really a year where the “use water” will slip further closer and closer towards a line of scarcity which will be the theme of the 2020’s. Individual nations will begin addressing this as the years move on.
While the Pharmaceutical Companies are the heroes of creating the vaccines to combat Covid-19, this creates a difficult problem for the people of the US. The drug companies have been Super-Influencing health and medical fields and political policy of “drug-use only for treatments” for many years, and I see that this will solidify their positions and influence in the US Congress even more, as well as in some other nations even more. I see this meaning the drug companies will work to have more say-so over Alternative Health Remedies, over supplements, and will have more influence over any medical practice that does not include drug use and drug purchases.
In addition, I see that US medical schools will readily move further into teaching drug-based treatments as the treatments required in many medical problems. The healing philosophies and practices of Alternative or Holistic Medicine will be more and more viewed in teaching arenas as what should be avoided.
The Internet will continue to grow where people go to get more and more non-drug-based medical information and treatments. I’m seeing that Alternative practitioners and organizations will present more and more information to help further Alternative and Holistic Medical knowledge strengthening the ability to get information to people who it may help. There will be some misinformation, as well. Make no mistake, there are very useful Alternative and Holistic Medical treatments and techniques which do bring healing. AND – God is the source of all healing – regardless of the method or treatment through which this healing comes. Even Jesus mixed a mud mixture and put it on the eyes of a man, leading to his healing. (This was to work with the man’s own consciousness which was open to practical (mud) and spiritual methods of healing – thus his healing occurred.)
These alternative medicine websites eventually will be targeted in order to get the websites shutdown. The efforts to keep them open will continue, but it will be a struggle. This path of attempting to shutdown alternative and holistic medicine methods of healing will last all the way through the 2020’s and into the 2030’s when there will be a governmental path and beginning mind-set opposing the shutdown of Alternative Healing websites. In the US, the struggle between Pharmaceutical Companies and Alternative practitioners/organizations will last for decades, and on towards the end of this century. But, both will remain available in some form.
I’m psychically seeing the Pharmaceutical Corporations also working to counter any drug price controls, because the US has always been a profit making location. Of course – they are a business and they seek to make a profit. It is in the US (and Europe) that they make most of this profit. Pharmaceutical Companies’ stocks will be in demand, driving up the value. Now is the time to invest in Pharmaceutical stocks. Business is business, and unfortunately, on the whole, this particular situation will contribute to difficulty in developing a more affordable health care system in the US.
I do want to mention that I don’t see every natural disasters which happens. Some of them even surprise me because I see what I seek to see, for the most part. And many times, no one asks about an event and so I don’t look for an/the event.
In the US, on the East Coast and in the Gulf of Mexico – 2021 will have a smaller hurricane number than the 2020 season, but the image I see is one of “pressing down a metal spring, preparing for the moment that the spring is released.” 2021 is the pressing down of the spring – this means that the 2021 hurricane season will have fewer hurricanes and tropical storms, than 2020. Do not let this fewer number of hurricanes lull anyone into thinking things are easing off with regards to destructive weather. I say this, because the energy that is manifesting into this 6 year time period has much more yet to come forth. This means that I’m seeing that the hurricanes in 2022, 2023, and 2024, over time, will be increasingly EXCEPTIONALLY DESTRUCTIVE and focusing in the southeastern states of the US, but also reaching into the mid-central eastern states.
We have time to energetically work on this through our prayers and meditations before they manifest. I say this, because when Hurricane Rita hit New Orleans and created a massive disaster, there came forth a massive prayer effort – millions of people (much of it came from Utah) directed towards the Gulf Coast. This brought forth the Christ energy in such a great level that the 2006 and ½ of the 2007 hurricane season was healed/dissolved. In other words, the energy that was to manifest at that time as hurricanes, was healed/rebalanced/redeemed, and no longer manifested. I had previously seen (in a 2002 reading – yes, accurately) a hurricane hitting my own family home in 2006, and it never came. It was only afterwards when I was reexamining the information to find out what happened for me to “be wrong”, that I saw the massive prayer effort heal the hurricane seasons. Massive prayer efforts heal massive destructiveness.
Currently, in the 2021 hurricane season, I see up to 7 named storms in the summer months with 5 impacting storms in the Southeast US. (More might happen, but this is what I see, right now.) One of them will be a large hurricane. 2 tropical storms, possibly 3, and 1-2 being less than a tropical storm. The other storms that happen will be small enough to possibly not be named. June will have a few small storms, staying small. One going into Mexico, and others going into Mississippi and the Florida panhandle. July, I see one large going into the Gulf, inland in the Alabama/Mississippi area, then heading up into the eastern states. August, small storms, September, a medium size, possible tropical storm, possibly up to 3 of these total. October, I see a storm to be concerned about – 3rd week of October. Then November, diminishing the chances of one. During the hurricane season, I do see 1 storm enter into mid-Florida from the East , cutting across Florida – a tropical storm growing into a category 1. This will be possibly in August. I’m seeing that if there are more on the East coast, they will stay further out in the Atlantic.
While I’m seeing these in detail, it is a year away and time changes things. Never hesitate to get updates via requesting them online, especially about natural disasters.
The Pacific Ocean – Typhoons: In looking at May to October,…
I’m seeing 1 large storm travel across the southern Philippines. It will be stronger than a small storm going across the mid to northern part of the Philippines. I’m seeing the 2nd, smaller one, following the larger southern one by about 3-4 weeks.
I’m seeing 5-6 storms hitting East China in 2021, with each being close to each other in strength. The time frame seems to be mid-May to mid-August. I do see a possible 2 more in November, 2021. I’m seeing the stronger ones be in the southern half of the eastern coast of China.
In 2021, I see Hawaii facing 3 major storms worthy of mentioning. The strongest of the 3 will be first. All of them will be serious, but not record-breaking.
In 2021, in the Earth as a whole, I’m seeing 2 major earthquakes, with hundreds/thousands/millions of small tremors. I’m also seeing a possible 3-4 more large ones, but they’re not as established to manifest as the 2 “destined” ones mentioned above. The 2 major earthquakes, I see happening in the central area of the northern half of South America.
In the US, in 2021 on the west coast, I’m seeing a relatively light year with regards to earthquakes. I am seeing those earthquakes being 5 or less. In Alaska, I see one in the Aleutian Islands measuring a low 3.5-4. At most it would go to 4.5, but I currently see it being 4 or less.
I do see a massive earthquake happening in Russia – southeast of central Russia. However, this could be part of the “Shock” I describe below.
The largest earthquake in China in 2021, I see being about a 5.0 and happening on or before September.
I list this under Earthquakes because of part of this:
In 2021, I’m seeing what I can only call a “Shock” of some kind. I see it happening over the western half of the Indian Ocean. My first effort to interpret what I’m seeing is possibly a meteor or asteroid grazing the Earth’s atmosphere over the Indian Ocean. In seeing this, and interpreting it this way, I am looking to see if it lands on earth, but I am seeing it NOT land on Earth, but possibly rather bouncing off the atmosphere and moving on or being destroyed. At the same time, I don’t think it is this exactly, but I’m not yet seeing what exactly it is…. unless there is a man-made “Shock” which could be a few different events. I do see it as an event which causes a “Shock”. It is the “Shock” cause that I’m not sure what I’m seeing. It could even be something happening with man-made items in orbit around the Earth – perhaps a collision of some type.
The Shock could also be a meteor which does enter the atmosphere but burns up mostly or completely which is why I’m not seeing a massive splash or landing explosion. And it could be a shock underneath the Indian Ocean, which would cause a Tsunami. It could be human related in the form of a social upheaval event. This means it could be “shocking” to humans – like an outbreak of a war. Finally, it could be an event that happens on the spirit level and could resolve at that level, also. So, at this time, I will keep looking at it to see if the event develops into something recognizable. I mention it here because I’m seeing it. My last thought is that it very much can be a calling for prayer to help it to NOT manifest, hence why it’s not showing as a physical event that I can zero in on. This is how I will take it at this time – a call for prayer for this region. I invite others to pray for this region, also, because there is something.
On the whole, 2021 will be a normal to slow year for earthquakes. I’m currently seeing 2023 being the more active year for earthquakes.
The people of Hong Kong are another people who desperately needs our prayers. Psychically, what I’ve been seeing is that the Chinese government intends to quietly but assuredly show no mercy to them until they fully submit, to instill nothing but full control over them, and intends to show them through violent means if need be, that they have no choices for self-government except what the Chinese government dictates to them. While showing a smiling face to Hong Kong, and the world, the agreement the Chinese government made with Britain was only intended to be fulfilled if convenient and Hong Kong came to submit to the Chinese government completely, and these agreements are now being forgotten. This I have foreseen and unless miracles occur, the next 4 years will end with the Chinese military moving into Hong Kong, and with brutality inflicted upon the people of Hong Kong. Pray for miracles. Pray for miracles. Pray for miracles.
FOOD & HUNGER
With the pandemic, and the lower food supplies which came with the pandemic, we’ve already been seeing the steady rise in food prices at the stores, and the increasing numbers of people needing food from the food banks. The prices at the grocery stores won’t go down except for small, small amounts after people start coming back out from under the pandemic. In many parts of the world, people are better prepared, because some have had agrarian economies. They grow more of their own foods. In industrial nations, scarcity will be seen and felt more, because fewer individuals grow their own food. Industrial/ factory farms are more relied upon in industrial nations.
The industrial/ factory farms will not be able to meet demand, because of their own lower yields and supplies. There will NOT be food wars as some like to suggest, but we will see regular increases in the costs of food.
The steps to take are to find new and innovative ways to grow one’s own (and one’s own family’s) food. That which one can grow oneself won’t take the place of the trip to the grocery store, but it will help increase the food supply and diminish the scarcity, with home-grown food supplementing what can be obtained still from stores. Obviously, this also will help with the food budget.
The practice of growing some of one’s own food, will also prepare the next generation for food challenges with the continuing growth of population, the greater demand for food due to a growth in population, the worsening climate preventing full-scale farming/harvesting to serve the growing population who is having the greater demand for food, and the higher prices that come with the growing population’s greater demand for food and the worsening climate preventing the past full-scale farming/harvesting. Do you get what I’m writing? Like the frog in the pot of “slowly heating up to boiling point” water, it’s best to know what situation is available to us if we stay in the pot. We have decisions and choices to make, because as time continues there will be a continuing increase in the population and a greater demand for food, and the climate will work against growing more food, thus driving up the prices.
I’m so sorry for what I have to present here. I’m even more sorry for the British people. While an end can be said to be assigned, there will never be a 100% comprehensive agreement, because I see there to be loopholes, and parts that will be left unresolved. The Brexit agreement is going to be a hodgepodge of agreements. I’m seeing that it will take lawyers several years to complete the unsigned parts left still to be done, and more years to understand it.
I am seeing the agreement being the source of causing more problems and confusion over the years to work within it, than it has been to create it. This is not my opinion. These are the problems I see psychically. Challenges to it in the courts, through the years, will only serve barristers/lawyers as having some way to earn money. Some in this profession will focus their whole career on Brexit lawsuits and court challenges. It will be steady work. I’m sorry.
What I see will be named Brexit and will be an agreement, but as it is such, I am seeing it only add to the discouragement of the British people. It will be confusing and loaded with strings attached, making it possible to be abused, as well. In 2021, technically there will be deadlines and continued work but as is said, “The devil is in the details.” and this will be realistic in this case. I’m not seeing any signs at all that there could be good news with it, except one day the elected officials will celebrate telling the people that they’ve got it done (mostly, except not.) I’m so sorry to the British people. In the 2030’s, Brexit will be seen generally by most people as one of the worst decisions ever made, because it will not serve in the way that it has been meant to, and will eventually be thought of as a waste of time.
HOWEVER, FOR RIGHT NOW, AND IN THE YEAR, 2021, IT WILL BE APPLAUDED AS AN ACCOMPLISHMENT AND SUCCESSFUL. SO, SINCERE CONGRATULATIONS FOR THE HARD WORK AND THESE WORTHY MOMENTS OF GOOD FEELINGS BROUGHT ABOUT BY THE HOPE, TRULY PERSISTENT EFFORT, AND SEEING IT THROUGH TO THOSE STEPS WHICH HAVE BEEN ACCOMPLISHED.
THE STATE OF GEORGIA’S JANUARY 5, 2021 RUNOFF ELECTION
I see both Senate seats going to the Republicans. One will be a clear winner, but one will be barely a winner.
Added 1/6/2021: I missed this one, (which again possibly shows that the future can change, and that our own interpretation of what we psychically see, can be off – based on our own paradigm,) but I am now predicting the Republicans winning back one of the two houses of Congress in 2022. I’m basing this on my having seen and still seeing a much stronger wall of opposition from Republicans in 2023 and 2024.
In the US, I see the ever present desire to end the Affordable Care Act through the courts into the springtime – March, 2021 and one court case in the summer. After that there will be fewer court challenges as the years move on. I see no improvements passing the Senate, because there will be the 4-year directive in the Republican Senate to not cooperate or make any deals with the Biden Administration. There will be a minimum of legislation being passed in the Senate.
IMMIGRATION AROUND THE US
While the emigrating of people within and around the US will be slow in 2021 because of the Pandemic, it will increase in 2022-2025 because of the problems within the economy. People are looking for a better life situation. There will be some of this same thing happening in Europe and China. In smaller amounts, this will happen in nations around the world.
Do you see a conclusion to mask wearing this coming year? I’ll always wear it when necessary because it’s about helping others… but I’m also over the masks. M.L.
Most certainly we all can relate to the weariness of Covid-19 and wearing masks. For a practical solution, try wearing bandanas or any of the other alternative “mask-like” clothes. You’re right, we are doing this to help others, including…. when we wear our masks, it helps show support to all the others wearing their masks. It can shore up others who are weary. It can be a sign of solidarity as well, that we are supporting each other, when we are all wearing a mask. We can gain that feeling of solidarity when we go out and see many others wearing their masks, too. Finally, it is always important to remember that of the people that go into the ICU – the serious patients – some leave ICU when they get well, but others leave ICU when they don’t. As for if we will be able to stop wearing masks in 2021 …. yes, sort of, but keep it with you, because Covid will be around for a while, yet.
Covid numbers are spiking in Ohio. Do you see DeWine doing another shutdown? What about schools… as a teacher, I’m very concerned as those numbers are starting to creep up too with students. Thank you, in advance, for relaying information to us! M.L.
You are correct to be alert to this problem. Common sense tells us that what we are seeing is that of which we can expect more. Ohio is no exception. So, I continue to support prayer, masks, cleaning, and all CDC recommendations. Prayer without practical steps will not save people. Prayer with practical steps will save more. In this case, I rely on the old saying that has been overused to the point of it being ignored – God helps those who help themselves. Unfortunately, this is being ignored. But, individually, it is more wise to heed it.
As of this writing, (the end of 2020), the vaccines will be dispersed, but it will take time. I’m still seeing numbers who contract the virus still growing, but leveling off in January and February, but not coming down until April and May when many will want a full opening of society even though doing it at this time would cause numbers to increase again. In June, I see a slow opening of society being safe.
1. Will the grand convergence of Saturn and Jupiter affect Joe Biden and his administration? C.C.
I asked my friend, Stephanie Austin of Ecoastrology.com to answer these two questions.
1. Yes, the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn will affect the Biden administration, as it signals the beginning of a new 20 year cycle, a new 200 year cycle, and is also a harbinger of the Age of Aquarius. Jupiter-Saturn cycles mark significant shifts in social, political, and economic policy. Their previous conjunction occurred on May 28, 2000 (at 23º Taurus), a period which saw the burst of the dot-com bubble and the beginning of the real estate bubble. Their last conjunction in Aquarius was on January 16, 1405 at 24º, coinciding with the ending of the Middle Ages and the beginning of the Early Renaissance.
2. Will the grand convergence have an affect on Joe Biden and his administration the next 4 years? C.C.
2. This Great Conjunction will continue to have an effect during the next four years and beyond, as it signals the beginning of a more egalitarian and humanitarian era. Jupiter and Saturn conjoin in one element for approximately 200 years, called the Great Mutation. While the Great Conjunctions were in earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn), the collective emphasis was on what could be made, used, and possessed, accelerated by the Industrial Revolution and the discovery of electricity. During the last 200 years mechanization, urbanization, and materialism have drastically changed how we relate to the Earth and the material plane. The Great Conjunctions moving into Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) signify an archetypal turn from material to social development, from the control of land and resources to the regulation of information and connection, leading to a greater valuing of creativity and innovation, new networks and alliances, increased shared goods and social reform.
Aquarius’ spiritual task is the development of group consciousness, where we evolve beyond identification with family, religion, race, and country to being a member of the human race. It is the sign of equality and diversity, innovation and reform, collaboration and community. The Age of Aquarius is the age of liberty, equality, and freedom for all, the age of unity in diversity. Unity does not mean uniformity; it is the synergy generated from the expression of each unique individual. The eleventh sign instructs us to be inclusive and inventive. How well we tolerate individual freedom and social justice depends on how well we have mastered the lessons of the previous sign, Capricorn. If we have not developed a healthy sense of sovereignty and responsibility, we fall into the shadow side of Aquarius, which can lead to blind conformity, dehumanization, and technocracy.
There has not been a Jupiter-Saturn conjunction on a winter solstice in the last 5,000 years. This solstice conjunction marks a major turning point in humanity’s evolutionary journey. How skillfully and fully we are able to release the old determines how well we are able to envision and embody the new. The less baggage, resentment, and fear we have, the quicker we can move forward. The more we remember the big picture, that life is about cycles, about learning, about living from the heart, the easier it is to see what’s true, do what’s most meaningful, and hold the light in these challenging transitional times.

Jodie’s contribution: with both these questions, I see the energy of the planets, galaxy, and universe as a wave washing over the Earth and all life within the realm. I see it as a wave, with the peak of the wave being during this time and like a wave, able to carry whichever life is willing to ride the wave. Once the wave washes through, the experience stays, but the energy can be influential or can be rejected. The experience cannot be erased. We cannot return to what once was.
What are the limits to the questions i can ask and how to you obtain the information? Is it through images? Through complete conversations you hear? Emotions and feelings or a mixture of all of the above and then some? V
When I’m reading anything psychically, I won’t place any limits on what anyone can ask. There are some limitations on what I can connect to – there is a requirement of respect towards other’s lives and the information of their life. This respect includes not sharing that which is private for them. Yet, there is public information about all life.
Otherwise, I obtain information much like a librarian obtains a book requested. When asked, I seek it out. I am able to identify the vibrations of thoughts and feelings of the past and present, and “written” in the Akashic Records, as well as see down the road to the potential futures. I “tune-in” to the vibrations of the person asking, the question asked, and that which I understand to be the answer in the Akashic Records, to the question, then translate these vibrations into images, feelings and thoughts. I don’t “hear” voices when I do readings.
For me, it’s more like reading a book of vibrations, images, thoughts and feelings. And it’s even more than what I describe. For me to reach up to connect with the vibrations of the Akashic Records, I must “reach up” – like reaching up to grab an electrical powerline and holding on. Finally, I do have help in raising up to that vibration level, and I do have help in identifying certain vibrations. I’ve been giving readings for 36 years now, and I’m still learning more on how to get better.
How is the housing market going to be in the United States? Things are still hot. Are foreclosure and evictions going to be serious issues in 2021? Mass homelessness? V
The housing market will be good for buyers, because the interest rates for mortgages will continue to be low with a potential small increase in the interest rate in the spring, 2021, but that interest rate increase will be reversed soon after. The interest rates will be in the lower range for almost the whole year. At the end of the year, we can see a small increase. The potential for a wave of foreclosures will come, because the owners of rental houses will be suffering, and many will not be able to pay the mortgages. The potential for evictions will be upon us, as well. After Jan 20th, I see some action to prevent more evictions as part of dealing with Covid 19 and for relief reasons. It will be difficult for the new administration to keep all foreclosures and evictions from happening, but much of this will be avoided. As for mass homelessness, much effort will come forth to keep this from happening. But, there will be some, just not at the “mass” scale.
Will Trump leave office without starting a war first? Is he going to try and incite his followers to encourage a civil war after he leaves or will things calm down once he is out of office? CC
For your 1st question: A military war – No, but his war on the election system will continue to January 20, 2021. His verbal war will continue afterwards.
2nd question: Again, I don’t see a military civil war in the US, but there are factions in the US who will carry out pockets of violence. I see mostly the violence coming from white supremacist groups and mostly in the Eastern states. The potential exists in Nevada, and I’m not seeing it manifest in Montana unless it’s from 1 or 2 people only. Prayers will help minimize the harm they seek to inflict.
3rd question: As for calming down after he is out of office – not at first. His need for the services of lawyers will become news stories in Feb-March. This kind of news will drag on for a while.
He does mean to run again in 2024, and will have many speaking engagements for the next 3 years (2021-2023) in order to prepare for that run. But, around the end of 2023 to the beginning of 2024, he will step back from running again.
2020 brought us COVID-19 and all of its challenges. What major challenges do you see 2021 bringing to the world, before or after the vaccine will have been introduced?
With the US, the major challenge will be facing the triple threat of the political divide continuing in big ways in the country during the pandemic and with major climate change issues to deal with, in our faces. All three are related and all three are connected. That’s about as major as we can get. This will create a slow economy, for quite some time.
Or, what major challenge(s) do you see humanity facing that isn’t COVID related?
The closed mind and the closed heart – and the belief that this is unimportant. These are far worse and bring greater suffering than any physical disaster ever could. Sadly, we will see this happen often.
What major geopolitical events do you see occurring?
I wish I could say that all we’ll have to deal with is the zombie apocalypse. That would be easy.
I have been speaking about this time period for several years – the dark times – these six years: 2021-2026 – the times of behaviors far away from the Light and Love – the times of hatred of the truth and more hate for those that bring it. We will see too many behaviors of such as this. Hence, why it is a time also, for praying, for meditating, for holding to that which speaks to us from deep within our own hearts – where real and true love, compassion, and kindness resides. It is a time to remember ourselves as caring people, with hearts and souls, who wish to help make all human beings and all lives better, not our own only.
Remember, each geopolitical event is major to the people to whom it happens. For the whole world, the continued prejudice towards the “other” is a geopolitical event, because it will happen in the political arenas. Hong Kong’s fate is a singular major event, and will grow worse as years progress. In the US, the ongoing political war in Washington DC, is another, because nothing like it will have ever been seen before, – where the welfare of the people will not be the focus – where misinformation will be so vast that few will ever be able to identify the facts and the truth – where suffering the attacks from others will be the norm. All of this will grow worse as the years of this time period progress. The positive news will be in local governments where “neighbors” are the ones elected, and they then know the people served.
Will the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan be resolved?
Unfortunately, these two nations and their conflict will continue like they are now in some form, for many years. The inner will to seek out peace is just not in the majority of people or leaders. Those in power feel that it serves them more to be in conflict. In 2021, we will see little progress for peaceful coexistence. The conflict will not increase much beyond what it currently is, yet, we will see a slow and small increase of conflict towards the 2025-2026, when neighboring countries will then add more pressure to work something out. Even then, working something out will barely be the will of a significant enough number of people, but not everyone. However, one ray of hope is in 2024, when a surge of effort could be brought forth to draw up an agreement for mutual self-restraint.
What are the ramifications of Israel having normalized relations with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in 2021?
This lays the foundation for the 2020’s and 2030’s to be when the roots of peace go deeper in the region. As time continues, other nations will join in, with eventually the great majority of nations developing some plan for normalized relations. It could take another 20 years for all, but it has started.
What positive events do you see occurring in 2021? DM.
Besides the Covid-19 vaccines, I see optimism within people that will buoy spirits and generate efforts to rebuild what has been lost. Slowly people will emerge from the cloud of frustration and discouragement. Slowly. While the economy will be slow to recuperate, people will see progress and will keep trying. The positive events will happen. They will be small events rather than large. They will help spur hope, and they will persist. As for specific events, as time moves on, more and more people will change their minds and get the vaccines… up to a point.
Do you see progress being made in the US toward a greener economy?
This is the hope and plan, but it will be fought against and so will come slowly.
What types of jobs do well and which ones won’t do well.
In general, we will see more skilled labor jobs increase. There really aren’t jobs that won’t do well in 2021. The factor influencing it is the question about when will a particular industry reopen after the pandemic. This means that the hiring process will increase in almost all industries and markets. This will happen slowly, because so many companies won’t have the money to hire right away.
Do you see any positive changes in the news media or still people being funneled according to which channels they watch?
The real factor that affects this is not what news media offers. The factor that affects this is the freewill within each individual to choose what each individual wants to see and wants to hear. This is what drives the choices available. Each of us, as individuals, chooses our own perspectives, beliefs, thoughts and feelings. We then choose those media outlets that convey the perspective et.al. which we have, and therefore want to see and hear so as to reinforce our own perspective. It is the people’s views that shape the media, not the media that shape people’s views. I know this is hard to see, but it is the way this works. We are drawn to those who are like us. If no one wants to see some media outlet, or hear what someone has to say, that outlet dries up and gets canceled. The axiom, “Don’t kill the messenger”, shows that the person who receives the message has the will to decide what happens to the one giving the message. In essence, the receiver of news has the power of what happens to the show/news provider.”
Any major hurricanes as well? Maybe you could do a break down for each part of the country like you did in previous predictions.
I’ve covered this above.
Will advancements be made in race relations when there is a change in presidency? M.C.
This aspect of human life will be slow to change also, through many decades, because it’s not a matter of just producing legislation, and it’s not possible to legislate the human heart or human thought.
* How soon do you see high speed internet coming to rural areas as a basic federal right? C.B.
Internet service speeds will continue to be determined and provided by commercial sources and at the rate which the markets decide – for decades to come. I don’t see any Federal involvement or mandate with deciding that high speed service be nationally established by legislation. Since we are a commerce driven nation, for the most part, the commercial markets make most decisions like this. The nearest thing to this, is a govt. program to help support Internet service, to all markets, but not mandate it. I see small govt. programs like this in small spots, but a larger program coming in about 3-4 decades.
* Will colleges and K-12 schools continue to offer remote learning (initiated because of the pandemic) in combination with in-person classes well beyond vaccine rollout, i.e., “hybrid” choice courses as a way of life going forward, or will being mandatory in-person return as the expected education platform for all? C.B.
I don’t see an edict that will be handed down to “All”. There will be few “mandatory” policies as the pandemic winds down and rather there will be a little more flexibility examined by school boards and authorities to see if they can offer any extra opportunities. As safe environments are determined to be available, K-12 will return to offering in-person courses, as they are taught on school grounds previous to the pandemic. This provides the much needed normal socialization opportunities for growing children. Since online courses have been helpful, some small numbers of Internet based courses will be offered to some high school juniors/seniors (mostly) because they will be college prep courses, some even being offered by colleges.
Remote learning by colleges will have been found to provide some benefits and conveniences, and so this will continue to be offered as will a return to classrooms – a move for normalization of college life.
* Framed another way: When or do you see major schools and universities expecting teachers/staff/students to return fully to in-person learning? Fall 2021? Winter 2022? Fall 2022?
Some colleges and universities will begin in the Summer of 2021 since the vaccines will show results by then. Not all will be ready to return, since funds to do this will be scarce for some colleges and universities, and so the return to normal college “business” will be step by step. They will do the best they can with the resources they have. It will take to January, 2022 for the last of the colleges and universities to return to “normal” (again, taking it step by step).
* Is it a US decision or state by state? How can we plan for ourselves if we want to stay remote? C.B.
It will be organization by organization for colleges and universities. It is state by state working alongside school districts for K-12.
It is possible to stay remote, but there are real benefits to teaching and attending classes in person. These benefits are not available to remote courses. The benefits come from the human contact which influences all learning. Remote courses offer information and structure, but cannot offer in-person human contact, which is a real thing – necessary to all humans. Hence why there is a return to in-person schooling for K-12.
* Do you see Covid vaccines becoming mandatory every year or twice a year going forward many years into the future to attend schools, employment in the general sector?
For adults, I see vaccines being a choice and not mandatory, for years to come. And never mandatory for adults to attend schools, or get employment in the general sector. I also see Covid-19 being part of society for a few more years, because there will be so many who choose no vaccine. I see the vaccine for children being considered possibly mandatory right now whether to make it part of their vaccine programs for school. If chosen, it would be for several years. I am not seeing it be made mandatory.
* Or does this fade away at some point years from now and not a requirement for most work? C.B.
Covid won’t be fading away. Like all other viruses, this one too will make sporadic returns. Even though we don’t hear about it, even HIV is still something that people can spread. People will still be asymptomatic carriers of Covid for several years yet. I’m seeing possible small events of mutations which the vaccines will not be 100% effective against. But, I’m seeing this affecting small groups in the future, and because of our experiences with this now, future outbreaks will be handled with greater effort, precision and success. As research continues, I also see vaccines being more effective.
* Do you see more affordable automated products coming to market en masse that allow people to grow some basic food indoors in their kitchens as a pandemic way of life? Not just a couple herbs but real food, easy to grow, looks like part of the standard attractive house setup? C.B. The decisions to grow food and how to do this, will always be determined by each household, but I do see more effort in 2021 and beyond, by people to find ways to grow more food – whether indoors or outdoors. Many will use innovative methods and products, some on the market now, and some yet to be developed.
As the climate crisis continues, today’s mass-produced food growing methods and their products will fall behind the food demand, and hence, prices will go up. It will always be good for people to grow their own food, and as innovations in doing this occur, they will be shared on the Internet, where there already are many innovations in growing food – innovations from around the entire globe available to the entire globe.
Added 1/6/2021: In addition, locally grown vegetables have a different overall chemistry and energy – native to the area – which contributes to a healthier and more readily assimilated food. This is not a widely known factor, and so for years and years, people have shipped food to other areas of the globe, not realizing that it’s not just the physical characteristics that are important for healthier food, but also the energy and vibration of the food which is important, as well. In addition, the chemistry of locally grown food is different that that food shipped long ways, based on soil, rain, air, irrigated water, fertilizers, wildlife and livestock in the area, and many other less known factors – which go to make up the whole of the vegetables. As it is said, we are what we eat – this is true for plants, too.Therefore, growing one’s own food is a worthwhile endeavor – and worthwhile even if one lives in the urban areas.
* Do you see a trend in local governments in the burbs insulating themselves from future pandemics and potential rationed food supplies with their own mini farms for their big cities/local grocers? C.B.
On the large scale and on a small scale, in general, I’m not seeing any insulation like this going on – separation from any other group (rather the opposite). It is in our DNA – we have been designed – to need one another. People need people.
With experience with disasters, comes ideas for preparation for future events. Also with experience comes the recognition that the more people there are who are connected, the stronger and more stable is the support system. So, insulated groups would usually have less resources and develop less supplies, and therefore not be as strong and stable for providing resources, as those where there are networks/systems who can share over greater numbers of people. People as a whole are resilient and put forth effort in continuing to live their lives as best they can. We have experience and knowledge already as a part of us, which shows us that as we stay connected to each other – as we support our societies and communities, we are able to weather the storms that come along. I’m seeing the spirit within people to survive and thrive being made stronger as more people unite with each other.
* How can families, extended families, friends, acquaintances heal and trust each other again if they’ve had completely opposite views and lifestyles or common sense of keeping others safe during the pandemic? C.B. First, this is not a question of logic. This is a question of the heart – caring for people – caring for others. Throughout our entire lives, we have been and will be faced with these questions and situations. We will ask ourselves these questions about others, and others will ask these questions about us. Do they have our best interest at heart? Do we have their best interest at heart? Do they make room for us to have differing opinions and beliefs? Do we make room for them to have differing opinions and beliefs? These questions have been asked before pandemics, and will be asked after pandemics are only memories, because there are millions of ways for each of us to act safe or unsafe in life.
Ultimately, it isn’t an issue of whether we have the same or opposite views, but what our views motivate us to do. It isn’t an issue of whether we have different or the same lifestyles, but whether we allow there to be room in the world for each of us to have lifestyles of our own choosing. Giving each other the room to have our own views and lifestyles, is an expression of respect. Giving respect is an expression of consideration of other’s life and choices. Giving consideration of their life, and their choices is an expression of kindness and tolerance of them. Giving kindness is an expression of love. And we love people who’s behaviors sometimes trigger pain for us, in our hearts. And others love us, even when our own behaviors sometimes trigger pain in their hearts. This is the human challenge of loving.
Because there are 8 billion people on the planet, there are 8 billion sets of beliefs, views, opinions, and 8 billion different lifestyles. No two people can ever be the same person, so no two people can ever be the exactly the same within our minds and hearts.
If we so choose it – yes, we can rely on logic to determine who we love, but I don’t recommend logic being the source. What is better is if we can rely on our hearts to determine this, and this is what I recommend. Your question is about loving others who choose differently, act differently, are motivated differently, and let their heart feel differently. There is no way around facing this experience for any human being. We face this challenge every moment of our lives, even if we’re not aware of facing it.
If you are asking for a little logic, when it comes to trusting someone, there are 8 billion people who are human beings, who have both good and bad within them (us). This means there are 8 billion human beings who make mistakes sometimes (but not always), have accidents sometimes (but not always), make poor decisions sometimes (but not always), and lose track of our common sense sometimes (but not always). This means that all people are both trustworthy sometimes and not trustworthy sometimes – this includes ourselves. We CAN learn to trust people when they’re being trustworthy, and we CAN learn to NOT trust them when they’re not being trustworthy, but we must learn when to trust ourselves to strengthen an honest ability to accurately assess this, so that we can learn to tell the difference between when someone is being trustworthy and when someone is being untrustworthy.
Remember, everyone wants to be loved. Everyone is given opportunities to love. Neither of these two is easy, but they’re still both worth our effort, and you know this. And, they come hand-in-hand, together – two sides of one coin.
If it helps any, it is a worthy prayer to pray, “Lord, help me to love and to recognize and accept the love other’s have for me.”
When we have reached this point, then we can decide how to respond in a pandemic. With one possible response being that we express our caring by giving others the respect for their choices, and give ourselves the respect for our own choices, while at the same time, showing we love/care for them in other ways available, and showing them that we also love/care about our own health in ways available to ourselves.
…and as you know, sometimes, there is pain with the love. The term is called “long-suffering”. It is what we feel when we love someone who acts contrary to what’s best for them or best for all.
* I get they might “believe” something different and not a true intent to harm, had they known a virus was “actually” present, and some choose based on financial reasons rather than safety, and both choices to either isolate or mingle about life as usual during these covid days can cause harm to someone somewhere and which one is worse or better when you take into account mental and spiritual health as well, but it’s been hard to realize that the only one really looking out for “you” is “you.” C.B.
This is true, it is hard to be understanding, compassionate, or tolerant when we think“that the only one really looking out for “you” is “you”. It’s hard to be patient or forgiving to others when we think the only one looking out for us is our self. It’s hard to think kindly of others or feel any bond with another, when we believe they have no caring or concern for our health and well-being.
But, no human being is a black and white cardboard cut-out. And no human being is an empty shell. And no human being is a lifeless machine. And no human being exists who is without feelings and beliefs, and hopes and dreams, and aspirations and motivations. And no human exists who has never made a bad choice, or never made a mistake, or never learned something about life the hard way, or never done something which we truly regret.
And so, individually, we choose for our self, how we’re going to be in the world – how we will relate to others, how much we will care for others, and how we will respond to a pandemic. We can’t do anything about other’s choices except express our opinions, our understanding, our forgiveness, or our tolerance of them, but we can do something about our own choices in life … and so we do.
As for making medical decisions based on financial reasons rather than health reasons, this is not new to many people. You’re referring to what the elderly and many others are forced to do when their medications are too expensive to take the correct dosage. They instead opt to do medically unhealthy actions, because they don’t have the finances to pay for their medical needs. The actions by themselves, of anyone, are not the problem. The problem is the spirit/feelings/thoughts – the heart of the person – motivating the action.
* Looking back at old family gatherings, it’s been a given someone usually arrived with a cold or just getting over a flu they picked up at school, or maybe JUST got vaccinated for something contagious before they arrived to your gathering, and you just dealt with, gosh, darn it, now I’ve got a cold or don’t feel well, just great … but going forward now, knowing Covid is out there, questionable immunity down the road, how do you get beyond looking at others like they are … well, sometimes I want to say “pretending” they care about you but are just looking for a good time at someone else’s expense, or realizing they don’t care, or … I don’t know… ending up isolated the rest of your life as the world goes on without you and takes their chances. C.B.
It is something we all ask ourselves, because being human means we are a blend of things we’ve learned and things still unlearned about life. But, as mentioned, no one is only a black and white caricature. What appears to be not caring hides much, much more of our self deeper within that no one sees. What appears to be willingness to have a good time at someone else’s expense, hides much, much more of our self deeper within that no one sees. It will always be our own individual choice as what to do with that which we hold deeper within, which no one sees. Sometimes, we don’t do well at all with this part of us or this task. And it is the fact that we know that no one may ever see this that lies deeper within us, that really isolates us, leading us to feel more alone than any other person, and for this reason, we may act in unhealthy ways to find a way to reach out to have contact with others…. if unhealthy ways are the only ways we think we have.
* How does one enjoy family gatherings again after knowing how each has responded to the pandemic in safe or knowingly unsafe and risky ways? C.B.
By knowing our self as best we can and knowing what it is that we enjoy. Then knowing also what it is that we don’t enjoy. And letting go of taking God’s place in weighing other’s choices and actions.
Then find ways, where we can take whatever steps we can, and still let others decide for themselves. It is not letting our efforts be based on others’ behaviors, but rather on our own desires – to attend or not. In all these times, there is a weighing of – are we choosing based on them, or on ourselves, or both. There are situations where we don’t want to do something because of them, but we do want to do it because of our self. Then we can do “that action” for our self, if we want to, instead of not doing “that action,” because of their choices. It is in these times, we are then making the choice for our self. I hope this is understood. * How do you enjoy being around other people again without thinking they are a disease or completely irresponsible, or if they show up with some form of cold or symptoms even long down the road after we’re all supposed to be getting back to some kind of normal? That last question seems unanswerable. How do you enjoy … knowing? Or do you just choose to not? How can you appreciate family gatherings again, knowing some people likely really don’t care what they expose you to?
Billions of people around the world are asking these same questions. For some of us, it is an exercise in letting go of our own reaction to be a judge of them, and instead let them choose for themselves – like we do. Then instead, working to respect our own feelings and thoughts (choosing for ourselves) about whichever steps to take for our self. And knowing one day in the future that we will be able to spend time even with those that we still care about or love, who don’t seem to be returning the favor to us, at this time. And with patience, one day in the future, we can be glad that we get to see them again when we do, for the simple reason that we’ve always been glad that we get to see them, when we do, because we’ve always loved them.
* And I’m not ruling out being vaccinated myself just to get through this pandemic response, though I’d prefer to not have one, but I don’t see myself doing it every year or twice a year for the rest of my life. C.B.
I’m not seeing a vaccine be a “rest of our lives” step to take. I am seeing the medicines and vaccines gain in effectiveness as time goes on, and in turn, be needed less and less for any one particular virus.
If whatever we believe, think and feel, helps us to love God above all else, and love our neighbor as our self, then we can hold on to what we believe, think and feel. If what we hold onto gives us joy, helps us feel we’re no longer alone, or gives us peace of mind, helps to heal a relationship or two, or gives us avenues to experience giving and receiving of kindness, compassion, patience with our self and others, and mercy for those desperate for mercy, then we can hold onto our beliefs that give us this. If what we hold onto gives us a connection to caring people, a connection to healing the pain within our own soul and maybe someone else’s, gives us hope in an Infinitely Aware Spirit of Love who know us from the inside out of ourselves, and Loves us more than we love ourselves, or gives us a sense or feeling of recognition of the Spirit that lives within the heart of every single life form, then we can hold onto these beliefs, and hold onto them with all we’ve got.
Of course, if what any one of us believes doesn’t give us these, and instead leads one to resentment, bitterness, insults, targeting any group or person, stereotyping people, blaming others, seeing evil intent behind every action, leads us to be afraid of looking in the mirror from beliefs even about one’s own self, then why not change your mind. Something better, also exists and is available to us. We can pick better beliefs. We can open our mind and ask God to fill it with better beliefs.
Look for “the good” – which may take effort. If it exists in you (and/or me), both good and bad, then it exists in all human beings, because all human beings … are human beings. There are beliefs which offer us better perspectives on the world and the people in the world, for something that does lift us up. We may have seen and experienced the worst of nightmares acted out by humans, but that alone is not what exists. I say this, because I’ve seen both, and know that “Seek and we shall find” includes finding some good in people with whom we only saw the bad – and this includes our self.
