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.

The 2016 Winter Weather

I haven’t put up much weather predictions because the meteorologists watching and predicting the weather for the 2016 winter have been spot on close to what I see.

Overall, I see, again, the 2016 winter being harder than last year’s. There will be heating oil and other energy shortages and the winter weather will create problems getting heating fuels into the areas.

New England
The New England states are going to be the worst hit of the states with winter weather. Their temperatures and snow levels will be equal to last year and even a little worse. This includes New Jersey, Pennsylvania (the western edge of the worst weather) and Washington, D.C. reaching into Virginia and some into Ohio.

While the meteorologists see the winter being warmer, this doesn’t mean “warm”.  This means warmer than the average temperatures have been in years past.  We’ll still see very difficult weather for Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and parts of Vermont. The snow that is happening now in these states, is serving to give people a “heads-up” and will start coming down permanently in November. I see deep snow in these states on through the winter until it starts dwindling in March (but not gone) and then starts melting in April. The last of their snow will be on the ground in May and a little in June. And as odd as it might seem, I see a possibility for more snow at the end of April or beginning of May, but it won’t be enough to add to the hardship. For these northern most states, December will bring cold, snow and some storm winds, possibly having -50F being mentioned regularly in some form in the areas. [I am not seeing the -50F temperatures at this time of looking – 12/6/15]  January will be just as bad as December, and February will equal January. However, I see fewer storms in February, but the cold and snow will stay as is.

While March will see lessening of the severity for the lower New England states, I see the higher N.E. states Winter lasting well past March and include half of the Spring months. Spring temperatures won’t arrive until May/June in the higher N.E. states.

Eastern States
I see the Atlantic states having a harder winter than they did last year, as well.  The average temperatures of the years past would be colder and so it can be said that this winter’s temperatures will average out to be warmer, (but still not warm.)  The cold winds will be their most difficult part. There will be lots and lots of ice on the roads – especially January and February.  Once they get into [December and 12/6/15] January, they’ll see snow skiing become more and more unfavorable because of the ice forming. Their time in this difficult Winter weather will begin to end at the beginning of March. It will be sudden – like turning a switch. February will be very cold, and March will be suddenly warmer -rather than a gradual warming. There a chance for a late snow storm near the end of March but with the warmer temperatures happening, it can turn into rain. Some flooding could happen in a few areas in March.

Central US States
Again, warmer than the yearly averages does not mean “warm.”  The Winter in these states will be somewhat worse than last year, but most of the worst of it will be January and February and not past the Spring date in March. North Dakota, S. Dakota, Minnesota and that area will have what seems like normal winter weather for them – a hard cold winter equaling the New England states – but again, the average temperatures will be warmer than the past yearly averages.  [There won’t be much fluctuation better or worse away from what they usually get. 12/6/15] Tennessee, Arkansas, Kentucky, will have winter storms with snow during December and January, but the harshness will back off some in February.  Spring will arrive in March.

The Southwest

We’re not going to see anything out of the ordinary – like a mild winter.  This will seem very much like a normal, cold, winter.  We’ll see it being much colder than last year’s mild winter.  But, not as bad as 2014 was – 2 years ago.  That doesn’t mean it won’t be cold.  It just means that it won’t be a repeat of 2014.   The Southwestern states will face many cold fronts and freezing temperatures.  For states that aren’t built for cold, this can be a very difficult time.   This winter should be considered a practice run for the winter of 2017 which currently looks like it will be extremely difficult almost equal to 2014.  Don’t block out the winter of 2014, it looks to be coming again and being forewarned is being forearmed.

The West & Northwest

California, Nevada, on up to Washington to Montana – this whole area will have a much warmer winter than the rest of the nation.  At times, the people of Colorado will wonder when winter is going to start.  There will be cold temperatures, [and storms 12/6/15] but for the most part, this will be the year of a milder winter than some of the past winters in the Western states.

For the most part, the meteorologists are forecasting some of the same things I see.  If anyone in the East decides to go west for the warmer winter, take your own water.

Psychic Predictions for 2015

First of all, in the category listings entitled “Predictions” on the right side of this webpage is a listing for “2015”.  These are articles I’ve already written which include that which I see psychically ahead for the year 2015.  So, there’s more information than what I’ll add here.

Second, there is no more need for a password.  The article,  More of the 2nd of 3 Events: A Call to Prayer, is now open for public viewing.

Third, I don’t profess, in any way, to see everything that will happen.  I see what I look for in order to see.  If I don’t look for it, I don’t see it.

Let’s get going…

Weather:  As I’ve written before, the winter of 2015, January & February, now, will be a lot milder…. except for the areas around the Great Lakes, and in the New England states on up through Maine.  These are going to be cold winters again.  As I write this, there is a bad cold winter coming for Christmas for the Great Lake and New England areas and they’re going to have more on through to mid-March/end of March .

Meanwhile, the rest of the country as a whole will have uncharacteristically warmer weather.  Get your snow skiing in early.  Start your gardens early.   Addendum on 12-27-14: Now I’m seeing a late cold front for the Midwest and Southwest at the end of March, 2015.  If you start your gardens early, like I will be doing, be ready to deal with one last cold front at the end of March. 

The Economy:  There will be some details that will get brought forward in time, but the stock market will have a pretty decent year in 2015 and on into 2016, also.  So, the economy is doing well, according to this psychic, and the stock market is doing well enough, also.  It’s a mostly good year for investing.  We’ll have one bad area of investing, but I’m not seeing what it is, yet.  As the year progresses, I’ll keep looking to pinpoint what to watch out for.  However, on the whole, it’s a decent year for investing, so let it ride for another year.  The one area of investment that I’m seeing that will have a bad year is because of the bad things happening in the industry and the low public opinion.  So, let this be a clue to watch for.

Gas Prices:  Enjoy the lower prices while they’re here.   Of course, they’ll eventually come back up, but we can enjoy the lower prices while they’re here.  Their being low is helping people have more spending power which helps the economy.  Remember this point, because the opposite is also true.  (When the gas prices are high, spending power is reduced greatly which hurts the economy.  This has happened before, hasn’t it !)  Don’t let the low prices now fool you.  Electric cars purchased yesterday, today and tomorrow hands down will be in better position for the future’s gas prices.  These low gas prices will not last.  The game of pricing gas will bring prices back up.

The Political Scene in Washington DC.:  The best metaphor I can use for this particular collection of elected officials is – a car driving on wheels that are half round and half square.  There will be a few months of teeth gritting cooperation, and there will be months when all hell breaks loose and they go at each others throats.  Then, it will cycle through and happen again.  (BTW,  have you ever seen a car driving with square wheels?  As the talking shrunken head on the Knight Bus in “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” said, “Hang on.  It’s going to be a baumpy ride.”)  You knew that though, right?

Around the Nation:  California’s water shortage will be getting worse.  And worse.  And worse, in the years ahead.  What they need to do is plant billions of trees.  As I’ve mentioned before, removing trees creates desert drought conditions over time.  Putting them back restores a rain equilibrium.   It’s not hard to understand, if you study the science of it.  Trees act as insulation.  They greatly reduce the great fluctuation caused by the heat buildup in the soil to the atmosphere which leads to high pressure which leads to drought.

Texas water drought will not be going away and Texas’s water wars are going to get worse.  I use the word “wars” because that’s what it is and what it’s going to become even more.  This will escalate on past 2015, 2016 and 2017.  The government in Austin will wring their hands with being able to do nothing to get more water for people, while they allow for fracking to continue using greater amounts of ground water from all over Texas.

Midwest: The Midwest will see less rain than they need, but enough to continue to grow some food.  Some areas will have enough, others won’t.  In general for the area, the food production will be down, because they won’t have enough for all they could grow, but there will be able to keep most farming going.  We’ll see some prices rise on food because of lower production.  This isn’t news to anyone, but I don’t see the situation getting better.  I don’t see it getting worse yet, either, in 2015.  SIDE NOTE:  If you haven’t started growing your own vegetables, it’s time to start.  If you don’t know how, go to Youtube where you’ll find 1000’s of helpful videos that people have uploaded.

Pharmaceutical Industries or rather, the people who run the Pharmaceutical Corporations have slowly been moving in to control the medical fields, including the AMA licensing board.  They have pretty much stacked the deck on the AMA, now.  Almost all the personnel on the AMA are so far tied in to the Pharmaceutical Industries that there is very little stopping the people running the P.I. from running how medicine is practiced.  Alternative Healing Methods and Practitioners have a bull’s eye painted on them, and the rest of this decade, they’re the target of the Pharmaceutical Industry lobbies.  This I psychically see to be where things are going.  Doctors will almost be forced to prescribe drugs for conditions, or risk challenges to their licenses, even when better remedies are suggested.  I don’t see good things for the medical field.  As hard as it is to believe this, I see it psychically to be what is happening, but not easily seen by the public.

What I do see is that some practitioners will pull together to fight against some of this takeover, but they’ll need people supporting them.  If people don’t affect changes via the voting booth, I see the people running the Pharmaceutical Industries controlling the practice of medicine for decades.

For individuals, medical information will be available on the Internet, but even that will be attacked using misinformation and outright lies (yes, it’s what I see psychically, believe it or not).  Still, anyone who seeks Alternative Healing Methods and Practitioners will find them.  Just don’t forget that these people have an uphill struggle sometimes to be of service to you.  Ask them about their “battle scars” sometime – in other words – ask them what they’ve faced to practice, and what their outlook is for their future practicing.  Then ask them how one can help.

Oil Industry:  We’ll see more oil spill accidents in 2015.  I see one in Northeast Texas and one in one of the Midwest states – somewhere near the Kansas/Nebraska border.  The damage being done by oil companies and their practices in the biggest part of the Midwestern states from Kansas to North Dakota to Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin is absolutely amazingly massive.  Those states will suffer from this for this entire century.  Very, very few are aware of how massive the damage is.

Natural Disasters:  1. I see the 2nd of 3 major world disasters happening in August, of 2015.  The Japanese events of 2011 was the 1st of 3.  This one will happen off the coast of Venezuela and the impact of the force will be southward.  I go into more detail in the now unprotected article, More of the 2nd of 3 Events: A Call to Prayer, which I’ve added information to in reverse chronological order through the months I was becoming clear on the information.  The earliest dates and information are at the bottom of the article.  With this event, I see some potential impact on Florida, but not life threatening.  The worst will be a wave of up to 3-4 ft in height – but, keep alert, in case I’m wrong about the height.  There is much less danger to Florida than a hurricane would have been, because Florida is protected somewhat by other land masses in the Gulf.  The most dangerous areas are the South American north coast line and the islands in the area.  The islands northward are in harms way, although not as serious as the Venezuelan coast line, but some.  Signs for this event will happen in June and July.   I’m 98% sure of this as of this writing.  … I see it beginning deep within the Earth – I interpret that as volcano and earthquake and tsunami, all 3.  The US will be in a better position to help than so many others, but helpful response will come from all over the world.

Regardless of what I project as what will happen, stay alert to how or if it could get worse.  Watch in June and July.  Get ready.  Prepare.

2. The Madrid Fault:  In 2015, the Madrid Fault will only be slightly active.  I see the potential for some small earthquakes through the year, but mostly in the 2 and 3 range, and only one possibly in the summer, July, maybe that will get to either a high 3 or at most a 4.

3.  California Disasters: Summer forest fires, as usual.  The loss of trees just makes things worse for California.  I’m seeing potential for one large or a series of smaller earthquakes in the eastern area of Southern California.  Not Los Angeles proper, but in the eastern half of Southern California – in San Bernadino County.  If it’s not a large earthquake measuring 6.5 or thereabouts, it’s another type of disaster – like an extremely huge fire.   But, I think it’s the earthquake.  It will be felt from L.A. to the western half of Arizona.  Many, many praying can bring this down to a 4 or 5 point earthquake.  The maximum it will get is 6.7.  I think the epicenter will be just east of Barstow, along Hwy 40.

4. Sunspot Activity:  In 2015, it will be stronger than in 2014.  Those who follow this will see the summer/fall months producing some very strong sunspots.  VERY strong.

5. Hurricanes:  The 2015 hurricane season will be moderately active.  Currently, I see 3 hurricanes going up the East Coast and 3 Tropical Storms going up the East Coast.  South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, and Virginia will get the brunt of the hurricanes and Tropical Storms.  I think 2 of the hurricanes will take most of their force up the coast and out to sea.  Florida will have storms, but I’m only seeing 1 Tropical Storm causing serious problems for Florida.  That one will be on the west coast of Florida.

The Gulf of Mexico will see a few hurricanes mostly small – almost just Tropical Storms, and going into Mexico and Latin America.  Texas will see one storm during the hurricane season, but not a hurricane.  I don’t think it will be formed into a Tropical Storm when it comes into the southern area of Texas – Brownsville to Corpus Christi.  It will be more like a tropical wave or depression.  It will bring rain.

Misc:  I see something “odd” washing ashore on the California and maybe, Oregon coasts (mostly California.)  If I’m accurate, this will happen in April through June, 2015.  It looks like human-source debris of some kind – it would have to be a lot to be noticeable right now, psychically.

Around the World:  I’ve focused mostly on North America because most of my readers live in N.A.  I’m willing to take a few specific questions about different areas of the Globe – the more specific the question, the more specific the answer.  I will choose only a few questions that are sent to me, but I won’t be able to answer all.

In 2015, China will take a more active role in world events.  The Pacific Rim countries – I don’t see a lot of drastic or dramatic events happening.  There will be news of the area, but nothing beyond the regular events.

The electronics industries of Asia will continue to do well and prosper in 2015.  The Japanese Auto Industry will be stable as will the Korean, and the Japanese A.I. will be more stable and better for investments.  Both will be worthy investments, though.

The Pope will be even more visible and active in 2015 than he has been so far.  He will be traveling and making many very public appearances.

South Africa – in 2015, it will still experience social “growing pains” and struggles.  But, slowly it will progress and move forward.  I see effort and struggling and slow progress.  This is a good thing.  Slow progress is more stable than other types of “progress” because more people support it over all.

India will continue to grow in the business arena.  India will be a good overseas investment area for long term investments.  It will continue to grow for many years.

Finally, from specific areas to the globe.

Global warming is real and will continue to get worse.  We’ve not seen the worst of it, yet.  I wish I could say the opposite.  There is no magic bullet or magic beans.  ET’s won’t be saving us.  Technology will help and hurt us both.  The Earth as a place to live will become worse yet.  Remember the analogy of the frog in the pot of water slowly coming to a boil.  The frog dies, because it gets used to the water getting hotter.  The frog dies, because it does nothing to change things.  We are on the road to suffering more than anyone can imagine.  I’m sorry.  The good news is that the human race doesn’t lay down and let ourselves die.  There are many that bring forth innovation and help.  Support these.

These are dire words and I’m saying them, because we will need to rely on ourselves, individually, more and more with local centralized organizing serving local people the best.   While life seems normal for some, we also know that we’ve been adjusting to the warming.  If we were to jump ahead 10 years, we would see a world we didn’t recognize.

HOWEVER, !!! there are things we can do.  We can do something about all this today – this year. Ideas are already out there.  Actions to take are in place.  Ignore those that deny this.  Ignore them.  They choose of their own free will to deny what is true, in other words- they choose not seeing – to blind themselves and to blind others.  There is no changing the hearts of those who desire blindness.  Don’t let them blind you.  Ignore their words and move yourself forward with knowledge, cooperation, effort and practice.  It is said, “Let those who are blind, stay blind.  Those who have eyes to see, let them see.”  Get your hands dirty in the soil of life.  Join others, help, seek understanding.   As we seek ways to move forward, we will find ways to move forward.

And remember, God is real, and more than our beliefs can comprehend.  God is actively involved in our lives and very much aware of every aspect of all our lives (still beyond our comprehension.)  Yet, God never forces His help where there is no open heart that seeks His help.  Instead, God does fill the open mind and open heart -that welcome Him – to overflowing.

The Amazon Rainforest and the Hurricanes up the US’ East Coast

Sometimes, psychic information supports the scientific data that is brought forth; however, sometimes it presents it in a different way.

Around 1989 or so, I gave a reading on the Amazon Rainforest.  At that time, psychically I saw that the destruction of the Amazon Rainforest – clear cutting hundreds of thousands of acres of the trees and vegetation – will contribute to a weather process that will be destructive to the United States.

As millions of acres of Rainforest are clear cut, and now, in 2014, have been cut down, the ability of the Rainforest to moderate the heat diminishes.  Trees everywhere, and especially in forests, have the ability to trap heat.  This capacity helps to keep temperatures of a forest region stable and within a moderate range.  This also means that very little heat escapes into the atmosphere from that area.

When the trees are cut en masse, like they have been in so many areas of the world – in this case – the Amazon Rainforest – there is nothing to trap the sun’s heat.  The heat then which is absorbed by the soil (land) during the day,  then escapes into the atmosphere in the night.  (This is why deserts get cold at night – nothing to stop the heat from rising into the atmosphere – leaving the air cold at ground level.)

The temperatures fluctuate in greater swings/ranges.  In addition, the increased heat stays in the atmosphere and collects.  In the case of the Amazon Rainforest, this massive volume of heated air  via the consistent production of heated air then spreads and one of the area it spreads to is over the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of South America – the birth place of hurricanes.   All hurricanes need in order to get started in the Atlantic is heat.  They’re getting that more and more in huge volumes of heated air.

Now, with a similar process happening,  plus high pressure remaining in the atmosphere in Texas, and surrounding states of the Midwest, South and Southwest, the high pressure in the atmosphere pushes across into and past the Gulf of Mexico against the hurricane preventing it from moving along the old-time paths that hurricanes took – entering the Gulf of Mexico.  The hurricanes seek the path of least resistance (low pressure) which is now up the east coast of the United States.

This is how the destruction of the Rainforest contributes to hurricanes going up the East Coast of the United States.  It is a ludicrous idea until we see it happening and eventually understand the physics of how and why.

The drought in Texas and other states has many causes, and there is systematic cutting of trees in Texas, also contributing to this – without replacing the same number that are cut down.  We have much development all through Texas, requiring large swaths to be cut down, widening of roads and highways, plus the massive cutting of cedar trees in central Texas and other areas.  Over the decades of development and the cutting of trees, what one might usually consider only a drop in the bucket, now becomes millions of drops in many, many buckets.

There are many causes to the drought in Texas, and fewer and fewer trees is helping all the other causes, also.

At the same time, a very useful helpful measure would be to plant trees en masse.  Looking at it again psychically, I see that were the people of Texas and California to plant millions of acres of trees – this would change the weather patterns considerably over the states and combat much of the other causes, plus contribute to more rain for the states.

Drought is many years in the making and built via the years and patterns previous.   We can help reverse the human contribution to droughts.  Please, don’t use the lame excuse that we can’t plant trees during a drought.  Mother Nature plants trees under all conditions regularly.

Q & A’s: US Dollar and California Water

Do you see independence from the US dollar as important over this period, through precious metals or other DIY methods? For instance, there was hyperinflation or pronounced inflation in the 1930′s.

That won’t be a strong concern.  For investment purposes, precious metals will be a good investment, but to rely on for currency and tender, no, I see it not being necessary.  I’m seeing a resurgence in bartering though, in twenty years.  Some of that is happening now, but I see it surge.  I don’t see it taking a majority hold, but rather it becoming popular.  Remember, this is 20 years from now and not a lot of change happens on the whole in only 20 years in the currency arena.

Even as I write this and see it being mostly true, I’m reminded that in other ways 20 years can see major change — 1985 -2005 saw some of the biggest changes this planet will see, with the explosion of computers and the internet.

I’m concerned about the comments you made about the drought in California. Do you see it continuing in severity over the next 5 years or somehow rectifying itself within that period of time? Part of the problem is our wasteful use of water. Do you see the Colorado River going back to its full levels or continuing to fall?

I see the drought continuing at the severity level at which it is at.  In the next 5 years, I only see 2017 as being a year of some rain – or rather the end of 2016 – beginning of 2017.  I also see 2017 being a year of even more wildfires than the two previous.  Not a good prediction, but I see California not backing down from dealing with this.  I see the people who fight wildfires being ready and facing them head-on.

I see the Colorado River very slowly continuing to fall in the next two years, but cycling back up after that.  Through this decade, it will be down and up and down and up.  I don’t see a time in this generation that it will return to where it was in the decades of the 20th century.  I do see greater and better steps being taken to have wise use of water and a lot less wastefulness.

***

We are in the times and half times, and this is a time of tribulation, as we see from this past winter and the current extreme weather patterns.  We can call it what we want to – man-made or nature-made, but it is a difficult and hard time like a woman going through labor.

I believe in the Spirit that lives inside the hearts, minds and souls of the people of this nation.  Within these hearts exists the capacity for going beyond our journey so far.  Within these minds exist the constructive ideas leading ways to cooperate and help one another.

Yes, this Spirit resides in the hearts, minds and souls of all people on this planet.  It is this Spirit that will help us as we face  challenges both on the planetary and national levels, as well as on the individual level.  It may sound corny to some, but I believe in this Spirit.

Right now, the latest predictions have been somewhat on the dire side, but there certainly are many, many positive, encouraging and inspirational factors in the future, also.  The questions have mostly been about what to watch out for, because this last winter, which is still in progress, has been one where people would fair better if they knew and could prepare for the difficult parts.

Predictions for Weather for the Remainder of 2014 – #18

As the winter of 2014 comes to an end, (April in the most northern parts, May in areas like Maine,) the energy and forces will come back into a balance, and in general, across the nation we will see more towards the average weather patterns of the last 5-6 years.  We will not see the weather patterns of 3, 4, or 5 decades ago, anymore – not in our lifetime.

As the winter slowly ends, there will be fewer extreme events for the nation as a whole for the rest of 2014. This is the general prediction for all areas.  We will be back in what can be termed as “average” weather, or rather the new term – “the new normal” for each area. This includes all the mixes of weather that have been in each area over the last 5-6 years.

I know this is not a cheerful prediction.   The positive side of this is that we can, if we’re willing, adapt and live productively through these challenging times.  Some of us have memories how things were different, and so we can compare the two eras.  But, those of us who are younger know this time only, and so come into this time willing to look for and create new ways to live productively.   In the decades ahead, we also will see many new ways of facing life’s challenges.  There will be opportunities in every arena of life – for creativity, cooperation, acceptance, tolerance, imagination, support, innovation, respect, leadership, unselfish sharing, and so much more – in every area of human life.   We will be witness to some of this, and if we’re willing, we also can bring some of this into existence for ourselves, and those with whom we have contact or come into contact.

It is always our choice on how we respond within our own lives.

Predictions for 2014 – 2019: Weather #17

We still have extremely difficult weather hitting the U. S., but there will be an end to it over the next few weeks and months (depending on locations) as is expected.

Texas generally will start seeing warmer temperatures and the end of the freezing temps by the 3rd and 4th weeks of February.  By this time, the temperatures will slowly start climbing back up, with only one last cold spell happening after warmer spring temperatures have established themselves.

Southeast U.S. will see the last of the cold at the turn of Feb./Mar.

The Northeast will see continued deep cold weather on into April.

The North Central states will have deep cold weather through to the middle of April.

The Pacific Northwest will begin their spring temperatures mid-March.

***The Winters of the Future***

The winters of 2015 and 2016 will be much milder for the U.S., but 2017 will return with winter weather almost as extreme and bad as 2014 has been – almost.  After that, 2018 will be average to milder again.

California

California’s drought will continue through 2015 and 2016, but 2016 will see some rain.  2017 will bring more rain for California than 2016 before it enters into 2018 and 2019 which will see the return of the drought again.

The drought over the next 5 years (excluding 2017) will also see a somewhat noticeable population exodus from California moving eastward – mostly towards Colorado, New Mexico and further east, with some to Utah.

The California drought will be worse in the southern part of the state during this time.  Central California and its farming industry will struggle to get what water it can.  Southern California’s water dilemmas will worsen during 2015 and 2016, with some relief during 2017.
