2018 Hurricane Season

“Hurricane season is approaching. Do you see Central Florida (Orlando) getting a direct hit this year?” M.

As of this writing today, there are hurricanes building in the Atlantic. I am not seeing Central Florida being in a direct path this hurricane season. I did see 1 major storm side-swiping your area, but I think that was Gordon which has already passed. However, I can see potential for another one to “drive by”. I do see some storm activity for your area of Florida, but not a hurricane. However, I do see hurricanes going up the East Coast and hitting hardest from Georgian up to New Jersey with the worst being North Carolina and Virginia. I see a potential 3 hurricanes going into the East Coast of the US. Yes, it/they will cause extensive damage to the middle East Coast states. Anyone reading this, please prepare now.  Don’t ‘wait and see.’

Reader Questions about Earth Changes, Weather, etc.

1. My questions: The disasters in Aceh and Japan as well as Haiti and the Caribbean seem to have a depopulating factor. Will the population of the US decrease due to this economic crisis? I don’t necessarily mean that people will die, but will they migrate from the US (much like Puerto Ricans are leaving the PR)? If so, where will they go? Does this have anything to do with the eclipses that could be seen across America?

[A second look at this question with more details:]
With regards to the population – No, I still don’t see a decrease in the population in the next few years or going into the 2020’s. I’m not seeing a drastic drop in population world wide, at all. Quite the opposite. However, I see a lessening of the rate of increase in the mid-2020’s. I see this as a result of economic struggles world wide, as well as in the US. As economic times get better in the 2030’s, I see the rate of increase in population going up. I see population rising to about 8.9 billion by the mid- to late- 2040’s. 2050’s and 2060’s could potentially cross the 9-9.5 billion count. And yes, this will be a great strain on resources, if it happens.

While the disasters in the areas you mention do affect the local population and are readily in the news and can be seen on the internet, the percentage drop is only in a small time period.

The migrations of peoples in the world over the next 10 years, will mostly be seen in the middle east and Mediterranean areas – almost exactly as it is today. Some still from South America coming into North America. Migrations around the world will happen but be at a relatively unchanged rate compared to today. Mostly war and natural disasters will be the motivating factor. Searching for work is next and the overall economy is after that.

With regards to the eclipses affecting these factors, I see the effects of the eclipses, during the times before/after the eclipses, being to inhibit energy which stimulates movement and change. [An eclipse inhibits the sun’s energy. The sun’s energy stimulates movement and change.]

2. Is this climate time period similar to the ‘dust bowl days’ of the Great Depression? Will we see similar consequences with cold as we did with dust during this 11 year period? There is also a theory that the earth is expanding – what was once the Pangea has broken apart due to the expansion of the earth from the inside out. Is that what we are experiencing now? Is the volcanic activity due to an expansion process that the earth is going through? Do you think that major faults all over the world will begin to shudder – such as the giant and overdue San Andreas fault line? Do you ever see the lower part of California breaking up into islands, like I am told that Edgar Cayce foresaw?

In the arguments over climate change, some can argue that natural weather forces similar to the ones in the 1930’s, and the solar impact, are what is driving the current climate changes. I psychically see the “dust bowl days” during the 1930’s being a culmination of weather patterns of many decades leading up to that time, (even forces beginning to take effect going back to the mid-1700’s). The weather forces then were mostly natural, with some “lesser than today” influence from karmic forces. The impact from human consciousness was not as strong as today.   Human impact on the weather, today, is real.

The extremes in both heat and cold and other weather events are what we have been and will continue to experience. The younger generations will have to carry the full impact of today’s decisions regarding climate change. We have NOT experienced the worst that can happen. If the conflicts around decisions and actions continue, then during the decades ahead, there will be some great/difficult/dangerous/harmful times that the younger generation will have no choice in going through. If people continue as we are now, with regards to lack of major steps taken, in the same way that we are experiencing serious and deadly weather problems now, the next few generations will experience even worse – not “can experience” – “will experience”.

The Pangea effect is evolving continuously and will continue even to the point of creating new continents in future millennia and eons. However, it’s affects are too slow for us to be impacted in a major and noticeable way. An example of this is the volcanic activity in Hawaii. This is a small and slow process measured in human terms. It happens, but does not create new continents in our time.  The Pangea process does influence the magnetic field that surrounds the Earth, but again, we won’t see this process by itself affecting quick change – more like 100 to 1000 years measurable impact with measurements via scientific instruments rather than Earth changes.

The Earthquake activity on the planet now is under what is considered as “normal” forces influencing it, – this includes the increase of activity at this time in history. Included in these manifestations are karmic energy which aligns human and social patterns with that which goes on physically in the Earth. These both will continue. We are in a time where much is happening and “natural” happenings are in line with karmic manifestations.  Supporting this:  remember the journey of the planets around the sun are a natural occurrence, but they still have impacts and influences on people and human patterns of behavior – not causing these human patterns but influencing them. At the same time, human consciousness impacts the natural occurrences, in return.

Finally, I see any potential of land mass changes of significance in the California area happening over several hundred years and being thought of as a natural occurrence. I see it not being in the whole state but in the southern area – Los Angeles/San Diego area down to the midpoint of the Baja Peninsula. I see more changes happening in Florida than California. More happening in the Northeastern coastlines than the Pacific coastline. Over many hundreds of years, I see the Pacific Northwest rising slowly out of the ocean due to the Earth’s “creation of new land” process. Meanwhile the east coast will be losing its shorelines.

Edgar Cayce’s predictions were accurate for him during that day and time, and came with statements saying, in effect, if all things stay the same, these things will occur. This meant that if mankind’s spiritual neglect stayed the same, and humanity’s life on Earth kept being run by the darker nature of mankind, the energy of the times would fulfill themselves and manifest as Edgar Cayce predicted.

But, mankind had and still has a spiritual awakening in many different arenas on the planet, thus healing much of what Cayce described. While many may see the spiritual awakening which has happened in all the decades since Edgar Cayce predicted these, as being a fad or “Woo-woo”, this path is the source of the increased energy vibrations that has lifted us out of many of the karmic disasters previously destined to manifest. The increase in meditation, prayer, efforts to change away from humanity’s patterns towards war, the continued increase in social awareness which would lead to better goodwill, as well as helping the welfare of all people – these are the practices and influences which bring a Higher level of consciousness and higher vibrations – the vibrations of the Christ Consciousness (Love), which in turn helps to bring healing at many, many different levels of existence for all of life.

Remember, Christ was met with the same resistance and “push-back” that exists today. He was mocked, ridiculed, and eventually killed. But, His involvement and His teachings lived on, and live on through those who sought to, and still seek to help create a better world and better relationships throughout the world for All people and all life. The same is true of the spiritual awakening that has been happening in our lifetime. No resistance can hold up over time to the evolution of consciousness in this planet. However, this evolution can and will only happen – as Edgar Cayce says – “one hair at a time” – meaning “slowly”, so that all souls can be brought along in this evolutionary process. The planet gets included in this evolutionary process, as well.

With God – 2000 Years Ago and Today

Photo from markbordeaux.comThe behaviors that are demonstrated today were seen 2000 years ago, as well. The struggle for power meant that there were many in authority who rejected Christ’s teachings so that they could gain in material power. This penchant will increase now, in our days today, and for awhile yet, which I’ve spoken of, because this method of madness has worked in the past, and is believed to be a tactic which will work, again.

Some people’s efforts to attack and destroy their opponents will become louder and louder, because they are coming to the end of their time – not time as in their own lives, but time as in the time of mankind to begin a new age. The collective voices will be the loudest – screaming at the end.  This is a pattern for many of us when we don’t want to give up something that has been what we want.

There are many who seek to war – and war these will do – in whatever arena possible – including governments, today’s social media, all public venues – ever speaking to whomever will listen – to *try* to gain more numbers following them. But, no amount of numbers will change the evolution of mankind being brought about.

As odd as this may sound, the increase of the Light hinders the effort to stay deep in darkness by removing the availability of that which leads to darkness. Put another way, that which leads to darkness is kept from being fed and prevented from being allowed, therefore the impact of the Light has ever greater influence on environs. It is the principle of the raising of vibrations. That which continues to raise vibrations prevents that which would lower vibrations, albeit this transformation is done “one hair at a time.”

We are in the times of which Christ mentioned “Even the Elect (not ‘the elected’) can find themselves being misled.” “It is ever a time to be alert – to not go back to sleep – to practice one’s true spiritual practice – not for vengeance and destruction of one’s hated enemies, but for the fulfillment within our own hearts of the Fruits of God’s Spirit, which will come upon us and come from within us … if we keep on keeping on, drawing from the Infinite Spirit within ourselves for the purpose of bringing forth the best parts of what it means to be a member of this human family and children of One God.

Our vigilance comes from our efforts to be honest with ourselves with doing the best we can each day, and with what we best hold is honest, rather than what is said by anyone, anywhere, at any time, for a self-only agenda. Our effort is for expressing what is deep within us at the core of our spirit which is one with the Infinite Love and Compassion that is Christ knocking at the door to our hearts. Our call is to give to “the poor” that which God has placed within the essence of our souls – our kindness to those who are poor of kindness working to deny it to others, our compassion to those who express little compassion, if any, except to those of their own beliefs, our understanding to those who seek to understand no one but their own kind, to listen to those who hear no one, to forgive those who forgive no one, to be merciful to those who show no mercy.

Yet, the astonishing question is – How in the world can we even begin do this or offer these qualities to people who demonstrate little of these qualities ?!  I will say first that of ourselves we *cannot* do these things.  Alone – there is no way.  We cannot stand alone and think we can do any of these things – alone.  But, as we’ve heard over and over, and can benefit from hearing over and over and over again, reminding us everyday – with God, “all things are possible”. In fact, only with God are these things possible.  But, not just in our heads – but in our hearts – the place of Love, where God lives as Love.

Only with God, can we give mercy to those poor in mercy. Only with God, can we be kind to those who share no kindness with another. With God, we can and do bring forth from within us the Fruits of the Spirit of which Christ said, “It is from their demonstration of these Fruits that you will know my true followers.” Only with God, can we demonstrate the deepest kindness, the most important patience, the understanding, the mercy, the forgiveness, the compassion, the brother/sisterhood of humanity, and more.

…only with God – when we pray, “Lord, teach me the truth.”  “God, make me into the good soil.” “God, help me be honest with myself.” “God, teach me the wisdom and discernment I need, so that I may not mislead my own self down a mistaken road because of my own hatred or bitterness that I may still be trying to change within myself.” “Lord, help me not use my own pain and my own suffering as the weapon that inflicts even more suffering onto yet another person.”

Many look out from our own perspectives and see the world with great amounts of turmoil, selfishness, greed, suffering and violent hatred happening. But, again, with God – we will also be able to see the healing that comes from an individual’s prayer for family, friend, or a stranger, who is suffering. With God, we can find it within ourselves to give the gift of compassion to one other person whose suffering we cannot fathom. With God, we can listen to another person’s stories of their life and pain, and understand that their level of suffering can be much greater than anything we’ve experienced in our life, even if we don’t see theirs.

Only with God, can our hearts and minds be lifted up to greater heights of compassion, love, and unity. With God – is the path where we can honestly say, “I love you.” With God, is when we can be honest with ourselves and say, “I forgive you.” With God, we can give the healing words, “I’m sorry.”  With God, we can look within and even say, “With God, I love myself, too, and I forgive myself, as well.”

With God, we can come to realize that what we see happening in the world, is not the view where we will see God’s continued effort to bring peace to each of us.

There are many people in the world who seek conflict and war, because it serves them, but with God, it is ever true that “With God, within us, we will have that peace which – though we begin by thinking it must be lost to the world – will be reawakened in the world through *us*.”

With God, will come the transformation of the world in which we live – from within us expressed outwardly – like artists creating masterpieces – like gardeners growing green life – and from He who put the stars in the skies and set the heavens in motion.

With God, all is possible – including God being visible in the Earth – through the expression of the Fruits of the Spirit from those of us who keep on keeping on our path of – with God – Love.

Politics !

We’re right in the thick of it. And it has become more serious for many people in today’s times than it has been ever before. There is a spiritual factor unseen in the world, which also is having an influence. But, the spiritual factor is not what one might assume right off.

From the Spiritual perspective, everything requires looking “deeper into the waters” to understand the fullness of the circumstances and happenings in the world. If we only see things “as we always see things”, we are looking at the surface of circumstances. Rarely does the surface give any clues to what is in the depths where the spiritual forces and influences reside.

To begin with, anyone who has listened to my Nov. 2016 election reading which I’ve made available free of charge, here on the blogsite, knows that, contrary to popular beliefs and feelings right or left, “Things are happening the way they’re supposed to happen.”

How can I say this? I say this in this same way that Christ said to Pontuis Pilate as Christ stood waiting for his fate, “You have authority over me, because God gave it to you.”

This is true today just as much as 2000 years ago. The challenge then put to Pontius Pilate as it is put to all of us given authority or power of any kind – “Now, what are you going to do with this authority?”

All souls are given their turn to pursue that which they believe is their opportunity. This means that God holds no soul as more or less deserving to have a chance to pursue Earthly positions of authority or power. Everyone gets their chance – not all in the same lifetime – but, whether in a past life, the present or a future life, at some point, our turn comes up.

Because we tend to see the quality of work others do, and in turn, think we can do a better job, we put it in our soul to pursue “doing that better job”. Whether we’ve built a spiritual foundation within our hearts determines how we do in our turn.  By spiritual foundation, I mean living from that place which can never be touched by politics – the place from within us in which loving kindness, compassion, patience, forgiveness, mercy, understanding, brotherhood, gentleness, honesty, charity, and other fruits of the spirit come.

This spiritual foundation is based on Unselfishness at the deepest core within our very soul – the part of our soul that stands in front of the face of God and says whether we’re ready or not to move forward. We can choose to speak the truth to God of our readiness and desire, and in doing so, speak the truth to ourselves, or we can choose to lie to God and in doing so lie to ourselves.

FYI, God accepts our choice to lie and does not punish us for lying to God or to ourselves. This is because we have the opportunity then to learn from the results of our lying for ourselves. The saying, “God punishes souls by giving them what they want” plays out in this circumstance, although it’s not really punishment and in truth, comes from our own chosen actions.

This is relevant to politics in some obvious ways and some hidden ways. Politics is mostly a 3rd chakra arena – win/lose, fight/flight, control/controlled, and the like. Service for others, however, begins a movement into the 4th chakra. So, there is a potential for blending of the two chakras.

The individual ideals which we hold at the center of our journey into politics can guide us into either focusing on our 4th chakra energy or reverting back into our 3rd chakra energy.

Although politics tends to be viewed as one side against the other side, there are some that view it as trying to find ways to try to bring both sides together. Our ability to step back and observe our self determines which of these two is our self. Is there a middle ground we can meet in?

Some of us hold on to the “us vs. them” paradigm all the way through, but it doesn’t have to be that way. The Bible tells us, “Agree with thine adversary quickly.” This is because of the principles of perception – that we only know our own experiences – having only walked in our own shoes 24/7, 365 days a year for our entire life. We’ve never experienced living anyone else’s life.

This is why that “other” person’s experiences which has led them to develop their own particular paradigm, are relevant and worthy of being considered, and in turn, be recognized as having been learned – FOR THEM – with they having walked in their own shoes all their life. This is how others can “be right” and yet be 180 degrees opposite of our own “being right”.

We gain a “knowing” of our experiences and learning by walking in our own shoes. The other person gains a “knowing” of their experiences and learning by walking in their own shoes. It is the way of things. The heads side of the coin will never be the tail side of the coin and vice versa. But, yet, there is a way to bring both sides of the coin together.

All souls are valid in our path of learning. All of our paths are different and will teach us many different things. We value what we’ve learned more than what we haven’t yet learned, because we “know” it, and in the “knowing” of it, also know it is worthwhile to have learned it.

Christ’s words, “What does it benefit us to gain all we want if we lose our soul in the process?” are relevant in politics. There is a lot of “wanting” and “gain” and “us vs. them” in politics. The challenge is to pursue what we seek, but learn how to stay in the 4th chakra with regards to what we pursue, and hold on to that which is the most important factor involved in this arena – that quality and energy held within the 4th chakra.

As voters rather than someone running for office, our unselfish service can come in the form of praying for others, including our elected officials, or letting go of the “us vs. them” paradigm, while holding on to the awareness that our brotherhood/sisterhood/human-hood is more important than what we seek to gain in the 3rd chakra arena of politics. When we move into the 4th chakra, we move into an arena of service. We can then recognize that with this level of service, everybody can win, because we’re “all in this world together”. In turn, being aware that each opposing “side” holds only 1 part of the whole, and is not the whole by itself.

We have a lot to learn being human. Having walked in our own shoes in life, we have gained an understanding, and can share what we’ve gained, but there are so many other souls’ shoes we haven’t walked in, and can only gain that understanding when we listen to others share the stories of their walking in their own shoes.

PS.  Let there be no mistake – this takes a lot of work – to return ourselves to our spiritual center over and over, each time we stumble and close off our 4th chakra to those “others”.  But, each time we work to stay on or return to our spiritual path – to stay open to all life, we can feel our own return to our path and understand the importance of our efforts.  It is these efforts which will change the world far beyond anything politics can ever offer.

Learning the Language of God: 1-night retreat (see change in 1st paragraph)

Afterwards: We had a wonderful 24 hour retreat.  There was much to share, much to discuss, much to learn and much to eat.  Thank you to everyone who joined in.

*****************

(Due to a booking mistake, we’re changing the event time to begin Sunday, August 26th at noon (including lunch) and ending at Monday, August 27th at noon (not including lunch).

We are experiencing a time where people of the world seemingly are all but “going crazy”. This is not completely what is happening. Rather, what we see are some of the issues and problems which have been buried – present during all this time, and are now coming to the surface to be addressed and healed. Each of us can attest to some of it happening within ourselves and in our own lives.

The energy of the times, however, is helping to make this happen. This is not “destructive” energy with evil intent, but rather a higher moving energy which permeates through all phases of physical life – bringing change which appears destructive to the old paradigms, old behaviors and lower levels of consciousness vibration. We are both helping to facilitate this evolutionary energy into place while in the Earth, as well as being on the receiving end of more energy which comes in from higher levels with the purpose of matching and supporting us in this evolutionary process.

With these times upon us, it helps to connect in ever clearer ways with our Higher Source – to gain guidance from this Source to navigate these rough waters.  A connection to our Higher Spiritual Guidance can help us to gain from the One Infinite Consciousness which has our well-being in the present and our evolution into the future, in mind.

The purpose and hope of this 24-hour retreat is to explore the different methods of Divination, which can help us to connect to the Energy Field of the Infinite Consciousness of God.  These “languages of God” or communication and interpretation tools for potentially that which is greater than ourselves, help us to connect to, relate to and understand our Spiritual Guidance, Higher Guidance and Inner Guidance – not just to circumnavigate these times, but for our lives in general.

We will discuss the different methods – dreams, Tarot, Runes, I-Ching, Dowsing, Water-witching, and others.  We will cover the principles and workings of the divination methods for greater understanding, share our own personal experiences and insights to learn from each other, and explore how each can eventually serve to help us develop our intuition and psychic faculties.  We will also integrate making the Higher Self connection, with regards to doing these methods for ensuring the highest and best, be what we connect to and facilitate our better practices.

Divination methods are tools to help us to develop and understand greater guidance which is happening and thus available all the time. For example: where the idea of waking up one day and going from 0% psychic to being 100% psychic could be compared to leaping a tall building in a single bound, divination methods can be compared to taking the stairs or elevator to get to the top of the tall building – real spiritual guidance tools for real humans dealing with real life – and which helps us to develop an everyday familiarity with our own connection to the flow of Spiritual Guidance.  As with all tools, the effort and intent towards greater Spiritual Unity within the heart and mind of the individual determines whether any tool gets used helpfully or harmfully.

We will also include meditation times and explore how meditation and prayer serve as foundations for learning the language of Spirit. Attendees are welcome to bring their own divination method or tools to the retreat.

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

Jodie Senkyrik

Is There Real Magic?

Is there real magic?

Yes, it lies in the ways that love, forgiveness, patience, kindness and mercy can heal the heart, the mind and the soul.

It lies in the way that cooperation can bring people together to accomplish great tasks, can transform enemies into friends,
can fulfill the maxim that the prayers of a few will save many, and the prayers of many will save a country.

It lies in meditation, which can lift us above our own shortcomings, above our own resentments, bitterness and stumbling blocks.

It lies in the way that willingness to have an open mind and an open heart can reveal long hidden deep secrets about life and love, ourselves and even God, which we’ve not been aware of before.

It lies in the ways that kindness, compassion and charity can change the face of any individual from a face of pain and suffering to a face of thankfulness and relief.

It lies in the ways that faith really can move mountains – faith in God, faith in one’s Self, and faith in others – each of these opening doors to the Spirit of God working within any who are willing and the recognizing of such.

It lies in the ways that all of these can open the locked door of ourselves which Christ stands behind, saying “I stand at the door and knock”, thus welcoming Him in.

Yes, there is real magic, but we just don’t call it that.  We call it the presence of God, and the touch of Christ.
