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

2018: Looking Ahead, Going Within
Dec 31, 2017 to Jan 1, 2018:

From Sunday morning, Dec. 31, 2017 to Monday afternoon, Jan 1, 2017, please join myself and others gathering for the purpose of discussion and meditation for the new year – 2018.  Many happenings are being foreseen for 2018 as well as the future years, and I will offer several sessions discussing this. We will also have silent and guided meditations including a meditation joining others around the world.  We will bring in higher energy to help begin 2018.

“2018: Looking Ahead, Going Within” is a smaller ‘24-hour’ event.  Hopefully, it can be the 1st event of some small, quick, and easy-access events.  This event has one overnight.  The sleeping over for one night allows for a later Q&A session, group gatherings, and planning a midnight meditation (Edgar Cayce recommended 2am being the ideal time, but that’s hard to do.)  For those interested, overnight dream incubation covering 2018 will be included.  Discussion of dreams will happen the 2nd day.  (Sharing a dream is up to the dreamer and never required.)

24 hours is quick.  Because of this, Camp Capers costs (for meals and overnight) can be minimal with easy access to San Antonio, Austin, Blanco, Kerrville, Fredericksburg and nearby areas.  Still, the concentration of the program might make the time intense.  Because it is shorter, we can relax some, but we will still have a scheduled itinerary.  In addition, if another person would like to present something about 2018 at this 1st event, please come forth.  So, there are possibilities.

Registration deadline is Dec 14, 2017.  To register, send an email to me at jodie.1@earthlink.net.  I need the number of people, the number of people per meals each desires, and your choice of rooms/beds.  By Dec 15th, Camp Capers requires (A) the number of people for each meal, ( B) the number of each rooms/beds.  Credit cards can only be accepted through this blog Paypal button below, and will not be accepted at the door.  Checks, Money Orders or cash can be paid when you arrive.  To register, send an email with your information to jodie.1@earthlink.net.  To pay by credit card, please use this button:

Weather Predictions for 2017-2018 winter

Do you have a winter forecast for the US for 2017-18? A.K.

First and foremost, you’ll always find me writing that the meteorologists/scientists who are involved with predicting weather, are valid in their research, understanding, and predictions.  This is true for the short term – one season, as well as the long term – decades ahead.  The science is valid and worthy of serious attention and response with regard to Climate Change, Global Warming or whatever any of us calls it.  When examining these statements against any who oppose them, look more at the hearts of the individuals, and what anyone’s hearts cause to come out of one’s own mouth.  Weigh that which is within one’s heart and look for this one’s agenda and motivation.

***

The US has a variety of weather areas and each one will be somewhat different.  I’ll add also that the weather is like a stairway, each level is dependent on the previous level.  Each “stairstep” builds itself off the previous “stairstep”.

The Southwest: last year was warmer than average.  This year is going to continue this pattern.  Dec and January will be comparable to last years, with only slightly colder temperature.  February will see the 2 middle weeks being slightly colder than last year, but warmer than would be called “average”.

The Southeast:  I see a dryer winter for the S.E. for all 3 months.  I also see higher temperatures than would be considered winter temperatures.  This is for the 1st 2 months, then some colder weather in February, than in the Dec and Jan months.

The Northeast:  There’s no escaping the cold weather in the N.E. I see frozen temperatures – solid frozen.  I see an average amount of snow.  While Dec will come in weak, January will be windy and cold.  February will be frozen cold, but warmer temperatures will come in earlier in March than years past.

Midwest:  The M.W. is going to get hit with cold wind.  Lots of snow will cover the plains regions.  This is getting to be a new normal winter for this region.  In future years, there will be very few winters that are not like this.  Except for a slightly warmer 2018-2019 winter, all other winters for this decade will be COLD for this region.  Absolutely this will affect crop growth.

New England area:  December is when winter usually starts, but all meteorological predictions for November are already in and they predict cold in the Autumn month of November, also.  December will be much colder than November.  January will be a full-blown winter weather for the region.  February will be disastrous with serious winter weather related problems.  I see ice, wind and water problems.

Western US:  For the most  part, this region will not strongly experience serious winter weather.  January will be slightly colder, but still not a hazardous situation.    February will be slightly colder, but again, not serious and more closer to average.

Pacific Northwest:  This region will experience what could be called an average winter.  It will be slightly colder this year than last year, though in all 3 months.  However, Spring will come in earlier for this regions – close to the end of February.

Western Central states:  (Utah, Colorado, Wyoming and surrounding areas) Again, meteorologists have mentioned cold fronts coming in November, and I would add this will build in December.  There will be MUCH snow in the regions – for those who ski.  The cold fronts coming through will cause temperatures to dip into icy temperatures.  Much of the snow will turn to ice as the winter continues into January and the 1st 3 weeks of February.  Again, I’m seeing an earlier than normal spring with regard to temperatures.  The last week of Feb. will see temperatures rise, but there will be some late cold fronts in April and one in May, though not as bad as if it were Jan or Feb.

There will be a few anomalies this winter.
New Mexico will have several weeks of arctic temperatures in mid-January.
Eastern California will experience some warmer than average temperatures in the High Sierras overall.  The winter temperatures will hinder the fires, but not stop them completely.  A remnant of one fire believed to be burned out, will start up again in late November in the lower Sierras south of Yosemite, north of Kings Canyon Nat. Forest.
Tennessee will experience a pocket of warm weather with the Sun breaking through the clouds, in the midst of a cold front that would be happening all around them. It won’t last long.  (1st half of January)
Any other “anomalies” are so insignificant and small that they could be considered normal, and so I won’t bother with them here.

I’m ready for questions.

Question about the Economy

Would you please elaborate more on the future economy of the U.S. I have followed you for several years, and I recall that you mentioned we should be prepared for what was coming a little beyond 2018 . I took your comments to mean food shortages and difficult times ahead. Do you still see this happening? Tee M.

First, I’d like to say, there is good and bad in all circumstances.  With that said, there are many factors which will lead to times which are “more difficult than current life circumstances”, – I’m seeing in the next 10-20 years.  Also, difficulties will not hit everywhere equally.  As of this date, September 20, 2017, we’ve already seen hurricanes cause hundreds of billions of dollars of destruction for the Caribbean and the U.S.  We’re also see massive fires destroying so much in the western states.  Other events like this will also contribute to the overall economic problems.  There will be more events like these destructive events which will impact the economy.  But, many societal factors will contribute to the overall problems, as well.

Countries like Venezuela and others that have unstable societies are already experiencing economic problems as we can see via news reports.  Mexico has had a devastating earthquake, and this too, will affect not just Mexico but indirectly, the US and other Latin American countries.

Unfortunately, there are few economic remedies being put forth or that will be put in place to help in this country.   Other nations will have varying success in dealing with their own.  Each of these disasters and those yet to happen over the next 9 years, (what I’ve categorized as “the 3rd of 3 events” – which is a conglomerate of many events linked together) will contribute to the economic difficulties.

What I see psychically for the U.S. is a slow decline in the overall economy.  As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, it will begin in the summer of 2017, progress into 2018, and continue downward into 2019 and 2020.  We’ve seen it begin with the hurricanes this summer.  Fuel prices have begun to rise, which in turn gives rise to commodity/food prices due to increasing delivery costs.  Because recovery is slow, the destruction in the US will impact many levels of the economy, including production, tourism, industry, and many other areas.  Remember, millions of people who have lost their homes and cars won’t have disposable income for quite some time which would otherwise help the economy. The logistics of recovery will be extremely slow to unfold.  As demand for recovery resources increases, (materials for rebuilding) this will drive prices up.

And this that I describe is only part of problems that arise over the next 3 years.

The Good News

The good news for 2017 is that at the community level, people are able to connect and help each other.  Local economies can recover in practical ways when people act to figure out how to work together, to make do and to help one’s neighbor.

More good news is that as people pray and meditate, the level of energy destined to manifest destructively lessens because much of the energy is either transformed, dissolved, or blended with higher healing/spiritual energy.  As I’ve mentioned, higher energy being prayed forth and meditated into existence affects destructive/lower energy like tuning forks that raise the vibration levels of the lower energies.  This means there is less manifested destruction.

This is the purpose of prayer and meditation.  Even if we don’t see or realize the change and transformation happening around us.

Specifically for 2018, worldwide, I see the economy taking strong hits throughout the year.  This will leave the economy weaker by the end of the 2018 year.  I see this in general, with specific events happening that will bring about this general state.

Specifically, I see man-made influences being half of the influences bringing this to happen.  I’ve seen an event in May, 2018, that we can pray for, but will be a major event.  It will be a strong enough event to overwhelm the White House.

The events will be half physical Earth disasters and half actions which will lead to unintended economic problems.  25% of this will be the first 6 months and 75% of this the last 6 months.

I see some chance that the current Health Care program will stay in place, but I see efforts yet to happen in 2018 to try to end the ACA, once again.

Climate change is having an affect on tectonic plates via the fluctuation of pressure and weight placed upon these plates.  This can cause more earthquakes and/or volcanoes in the spring and summer of 2018.  Prayers can help diminish these, but not remove them completely.

We have a lot of help at higher spiritual/energy levels, but humanity must take the lead on changing both within ourselves as well as the world outside us.

The alternative energy companies will quietly and slowly continue to create a presence in our society and the world.  While loud arguments abound about fossil fuels, the alternative energies will be slowly increasing.  [As I’ve mentioned to people before, from the higher realms, fossil fuels were meant to provide 10% of the total energy on this planet, because of what they can offer, but we’ve gotten off balance.]

There are some parts of the economy which will continue to crank along.  2018 will not be a depression, but will be a rocky road leading to what I see as being rockier roads.

Mid-2017 Psychic Predictions

  1. Weather:  With the hurricane season upon us, I see several storms coming onto the name list.  I see 4 Atlantic storms growing that will go up the East Coast.  Only 2 of them will impact the East Coast making landfall.  The other 2 will stay  further out, barely impacting the East coast.  Of these 2 going in affecting the land, I don’t see them being major storms equally.  1 larger going into Georgia, South Carolina and inland and north.  1 smaller going into South Carolina and North Carolina and north of there.  The larger could grow to a Category 2, but could stay a Cat. 1.  The 2nd will make a Cat. 1 but won’t last long.  A 3rd will come close enough to cause storm problems to the same area as #2, but will not go inland as a full hurricane.  This 3rd one could go up the coast without landing, but will still have indirect impact on the coastline with a little more than average impact in Maine.
  2. First, I see 2 major storms going into the Gulf of Mexico.  1 going southward into Mexico, possibly the Yucatan or south of the Yucatan.  A 2nd major storm going into Texas around Corpus Christi or slightly eastward, possibly in August.  This one could become strong enough to be a Tropical Storm or Cat. 1.  It could make landfall as a Cat 1, but it could grow at the last minute and make landfall as a Cat 2 with it quickly dying down.   I see several other storms, but not reaching Cat. status.  They would remain Tropical Depressions.  One of these could go into the Brownsville, Tx area.
  3. I do see storms going into Mississippi and western Florida, but not as major hurricanes.  These areas will get lots of rain and wind, though.
  4. While I’m seeing these storms as major storms, my use of the term “major” is still subjective.  This means that I could be off about the degree of seriousness that I’m speaking of.  If they are less than what I see, they would all be less than what I see as a whole.  They would not be greater than what I see.  The damage can still be significant, though.
  5. The drought happening in Texas and other areas will continue until October, 2017, which will be a month of much rain.
  6. Politics:  I’m still seeing a great desire to end Obamacare in Congress and by the President.  As of today, I still see a higher chance of them succeeding at ending it, than it staying in place.  The possibility of it staying as is, in place, is extremely low.  Again, this will happen in 2018.  There is very little interest by those who will decide this to leave it in place.  There is every intent on ending it.
    1. As sad as it is for me to say this, I see millions of people losing their health care and having nothing.
    2. There is great determination and intention by those pursuing this to make this happen.
    3. If it hasn’t ended before 2018 ends, those in power will end it without anything to replace it.
  7. I still see the 2018 elections to be a turning point.  If things continue as they are now, I see the House of Reps. switching to a Democrat majority.  I’ve mentioned this before in some other readings, and I still see it happening.
  8. I do see Jared Kushner stepping back as a presidential adviser half way through the 4 year term.
  9. I do see President Trump being open to working with the Democrats in the 2nd half of his term.
  10. President Trump will only have 1 term as president.  I’ve mentioned this before.  I’ll also say that had Hillary Clinton won the presidency, she also would only have had 1 term.
  11. I see 2020-2026 being 6 years of great conflict between the Republicans and Democrats.
  12. The Voter Fraud investigation won’t turn up anything more than a few instances in Arkansas.
  13. Natural Disasters:  In 2017, I’m seeing 1 major earthquake in southern California westward of the Fresno area.  As high as a 5.6.  Late October
  14. Weather related disasters – heat related – will impact the Midwestern states.  This will greatly impact food production.  Then in Jan – Feb, 2018, the same region will be hit with a cold winter.
  15. No, the dormant volcano in Yellowstone won’t erupt this decade or the next one, either.
  16. I see more earthquake activity happening in South America – Peru and western Brazil.
  17. Economy: I see gasoline prices at the pump staying relatively at the rate they are now through to the end of 2017.  Before the end of the year, prices at the pump could raise, some, but only by about 10%+ or so.
  18. I see the 2017 economy staying stable and optimistic.  Wall Street’s numbers will go upward slowly and slightly to the end of the year.
  19. Throughout the year 2018, the US will experience some economic setbacks.  It can be described as “it will be a rocky road – some bumps.”
  20. Several months back I saw a major event happening in May, 2018.  At that time, I saw it being a major event which would significantly impact the nation.  President Trump will not be able to do anything to stop it.  I don’t have more information right now.
  21. California’s economy will stay strong through 2017, but will be affected in 2018 by the economic directions in which the nation is going.
  22. Medical:  If or perhaps ‘when’ the end of Obamacare happens, this will create upheavals in the medical fields and industries, especially with MD’s.
    1. Every time I look at this, I see millions of Americans left with no health care coverage, as if “standing out in the cold” with no relief in sight.
  23. 2018-2020 will be very good years for medical research progress in several different areas related to major diseases.  I see this as a generality and not identifying specific diseases or maladies.
  24. World:  We won’t see much change happening for Europe in 2017.  As a whole, it is a time for the governments of Europe and the European Union to study and plan where to go from here.
    1. As the years progress into the next decade, Europe’s economy as a whole will struggle and seem to be slowly slipping.  However, around 2022 (5 years from now), specific steps taken will strengthen the economies of the European nations and Europe will take its place as an economic world leader.
    2. Europe will continue to be a prime tourist destination.
  25. Asia’s combined economy is stable for the rest of this year.  The policies in place will help their respective countries continue without any major problems through 2018.

Predictions for Health Care: 2017 – 2018

It is a time for calling for meditation and calling for prayer.  I’ve seen this future for quite some time and I see it still in place. I’ve not shared it, because I hoped and prayed for something better.  I still do.

The elected officials feel they were given the mandate to make policy to change what their voters were angry about. But, not to help all the people of the country – only certain people. So, policy is made to ensure that certain things would happen to some people. Quite literally, some people would not be able to continue living.  Many people – adults and children will struggle to stay alive.

What I see if all things stay as they are today:  With the Republican’s efforts to be successful at ending the Affordable Health Care Act, very little to nothing will replace it.  With this change, some people are going to die – some will die a very slow death. Their deaths won’t be in worldly dramatic ways. Their deaths won’t be in the media – although the numbers will be reported. It is the future in place.

Many will go into great debt having to pay huge medical bills until unable to pay any more. Many will have medical bills that drain their savings and funds until they run out. The economy will suffer greatly, because the money will dwindle that would have stimulated growth. Citizens will slow down on spending to try to save for when medical bills hit them.  All finances of many people will be going to pay medical bills and medicines.

This is the beginning.  This is the beginning of the 3rd of the 3 World Events.  It starts small, insignificantly and will grow “seemingly” slowly through several years.  But, remember, the future can be changed through prayer and meditation.

2017 and 2018 are the years that the officials and their staff are helping ensure that this policy becomes law.

I hoped and prayed for something better to happen, but I see this future remaining in place over and over, every time I look. I am not seeing the public stopping this from happening.

It’s like being in a very skimpy tiny flotation device in the middle of nowhere and seeing a very large alligator eying you and approaching closer and closer. The danger is real. Not enough people are acting and praying to stop this.

There are 300 million souls living in the U.S.  This means there are 300 million hands on the steering wheel selecting the direction this country goes.  Those who put forth effort to turn the wheel a certain direction are the ones who influence the direction the country goes.  Prayer and meditation adds strength to the hands of each one that seeks to turn the steering wheel.  Our efforts to strengthen God’s presence with this can help.  “With God, all things are possible.”

Poland – What I See

No one ever mentions Poland in their readings and it seems we r in a great danger with NATO troops and other strange things happening in my country. With our history u can imagine how concerned i am…. could you pls look into it? Justyna

Poland is one of the progressive countries in the world, when comparing it to the major developed nations.  Its small size has allowed it to progress more rapidly than many larger nations.  It is a country worth visiting.

It’s also a “bridge” country.  By that, I mean through many ages, Poland and it’s areas has been in position to bridge two different continental areas.  For this reason, it has been invaded many times – being used as that bridge for other nations to “travel through” on to other horizons.

Because today’s Polish people are on edge watching the political and military maneuverings happen all around them, I am seeing a heightened sense of anxiety and concern.  For good reason, because of WW2 and the Soviet occupation being recent enough for people to remember the very real suffering of those generations very keenly.  Those that suffered were/are family members.  Almost every single Polish person knows of someone who suffered through those times.

But, Poland is in a good position – economy-wise.  As Polish trade policy with Russia stays in place – helping to strengthen the current partnership, as well as hopefully increasing trade with its northern neighbors, this can strengthen Poland’s economic foundations.  I’m seeing Poland not benefiting much from effort to create more trade with Britain, but rather maintaining what is already in place.  (Britain’s focus is elsewhere, right now and won’t see Poland as a place to increase trade until around 2018-2020.)

Poland’s economic foundation will be tested and hurt a little by the military maneuverings, because there will be a slowdown of investment in new trade – because of the uncertainty of what will happen.  Courage with regards to new investments will help Poland.

I’m seeing Poland being a good partner in the European Union and having benefited from being a member.  However, the people in positions of decision should know not to rely only on the EU to provide strength to the Poland’s economy.  There will be times that the EU won’t be able to offer support to strengthen individual nations’ economies.

I am seeing anxiety, but I’m currently not seeing certain danger.  However, Poland’s people – the nation of Poland – will be challenged in the next 5 years – because of the military and political powers around them, wrestling with each other.  Poland’s military will be challenged by outside forces in specific incidences, but not in 2017 and only in a small way in 2018.  While NATO is increasing its visibility, I’m currently not seeing certain disaster.

Poland’s economy within it’s borders is one of the stronger economies, because it has a good foundation.  It may not be breaking economic records when it comes to amazing advances, but its foundation is good with the industries Poland has, I mention this, because tensions will rise on into the 2020’s, not just in Poland, but in all of Europe as well as many other countries all around the world.

My prediction of world economic problems beginning in the year 2018 (mid – 2018 will show the most evidence) is still in place.  Major political happenings will come forth mid-2018 triggering this.  By 2019-2020, the world will be having economic problems.  Poland will struggle too, but as I said, it has a strong foundation, so it will do better than many other countries.

Mary, the mother of Christ, hears the prayers of the Polish people.  Let these prayers grow.

God be with you.

Psychic Predictions for 2017

Predictions for the United States

In the days immediately after the swearing in ceremony, I see a stepping up of assaults against the North Dakota Standing Rock protesters.  It will last for at least 3 weeks, possibly 5 or more, before those in authority step back to examine other strategies.  Many will seek ways to circumvent the decision by the Corp of Engineers and go ahead with completion of the pipeline.

For the year of 2017, I see the US economy starting off well in the winter and spring months with only a few “not too worrisome” economic ups and downs happening until the summer of 2017.  The general public will not be aware of much of this.  As the US exits summer, greater economic ups and downs will happen.  The economic road in the last few months of 2017 will become rocky indeed.  By the end of 2017, many will be worried because of economic instability starting to be clear and visible to more than just a few.  The year will end with a general feeling of “getting a little beat up.”

Gasoline prices at the pump will slowly begin to climb at the beginning of the year, but will level off through the spring.  By mid-Summer, I see a slight drop before the beginning of Fall when I see gas prices begin to rise again.   I’m seeing a range from $2.40-$2.80/gallon coming back in 2017, although it’s fluctuation could still be all over the place.  What I definitely see is it not staying at the level it is now.  Gasoline prices are going up.

Alternative energies in the US, will not get a lot of government support, and so these companies will call on the people of the US to help the industries grow.  This call from those people in the industry will help generate some popular support, but the general population are also going to be dealing with the beginning of having less spending power.  Those industry leaders who call for finding ways to streamline or lower the costs for people will keep a steady business pace.  Some areas of R&D will slow down because of budget cuts.

2017 will see a continuing growth of personal involvement in grass-roots efforts and activism.  More people will seek ways to become more active in influencing directions the country goes.

For the US, during 2017, I see the potential for some mostly small earthquake activity in Arkansas, related to the fracking in Oklahoma.

The topic of extraterrestrial activity will get attention in the central to Midwest states.

A town in western Florida will have a wonderful event happen.  Somewhere around Quincy, FL area.  I don’t see what it is, but it will make them delighted and happy.

2017 is not the year that affordable health care coverage in the US will be made unavailable for many people.  That’s 2018.

In general, in the US, we will see more extreme weather events in 2017.  Most of it will be during January thru May.

The World

The Pope will travel more in Europe in 2017.  I also see him making a trip to South America and a potential trip into central Africa.  His message will be consistent with his overall message so far.  He is seeking to give hope to people.

In 2017, there will be little progress for peace in the Middle East.  Some cease fire agreements will happen, but eventually they will be broken.

In general, India’s economy will stay at the level it is now.   I don’t see much growth, if at all.  It won’t get worse, though.  India will be waiting to see how other countries go with regards to the new presidency in the US, so they won’t be taking risks in their economic progress.  Ideally, India would do better not waiting to see how the US goes, but step forward to take a lead in economic directions.  This next 50 years is India’s half-century and India has the potential to become a stronger leader than it currently is in the world’s economy.  However, the poverty in India will continue to be a very big problem for people for decades to come.  I’m not seeing progress for the general health care conditions.  But, I do see progress in the decades ahead in the area of education – especially in the 2020’s.

Minor progress will be made in the field of archaeology around the world.  I don’t see any significant discoveries in 2017.  However, there will be further understanding and expansion of those discoveries already made.  Archaeological discoveries in Egypt will not progress that much, or as much as many want.

China’s economy will continue to grow through the 1st half of the year.  It will become rocky during the 2nd half of the year making Chinese government officials nervous.  The Chinese economy in the 2nd half won’t be bad, but it won’t perform as many hoped it would.

In 2017, Japan’s economy will continue to be stable and a good place to invest.

2017 is not the year of direct dangerous activity from Russia.

Canada will be a productive nation in 2017.  I see much good energy and good progress for Canada in 2017.

2017 will be another difficult year for Great Britain.  There will be more governmental upheaval (around April-July) which will cause the country to “stumble” some.  In time, it will stand back up, but it will take more than just 2017.

Australia will have fires to deal with in 2017, with at least one that is massive in size.  The economy in Australia will be strong and stable throughout the year, but I don’t see much growth.  However, I don’t see it going down unless its a very small amount – still strong though.

More to come
