Consider the Farmer in the Field…

The farmer wants to pursue a task – to farm the land – to produce – to create more than before. The farmer wants to know self to be a creator of that “something” that doesn’t yet exist, but which is held in the farmer’s mind. The farmer wants to fulfill self’s own potential.

The land is too much for one farmer to farm alone. So, the farmer expands his ability, first with a spouse. The two then increase themself more, by creating children – each made in the image and likeness of the farmers.

The farmers’ children grow, and develop their freewill to choose their own paths. Each child chooses the tasks they will pursue – some choose farming, some choose other tasks, but each chooses. As these children choose their tasks, they create more of themselves as the farmer did, so as to pursue accomplishing their task. And on and on.

Although extremely simplified in the concept, this is the process of Creation from Infinite Consciousness. God seeks to know the fullness and capacity of the ONE SELF. God seeks to pursue the task of knowing the One God. Infinite Consciousness seeks to know Infinite Consciousness by creating consciousnesses to explore creating – potentially creating infinite consciousnesses to potentially explore infinite creativity. This is the creation of All Life – the “All Life” that we know ourselves to be – plus more. This is the creation of companionship that is within the circle of Oneness.

Understand?

God – the living One Spirit that is all that is – is Infinite Love – and seeks to create more of the One that is all that is – Infinite Love.

To do this, God has created more of Him/Herself – made in the image and likeness of God. God gives freewill to each of the children, to go on and freely create. God/creation is only limited by the consciousness of the one doing the creating – what limitations one chooses for oneself – what limitations WE choose for OURselves.

These limitations – the limitations we have chosen in past and present – are from our own chosen perspectives on living as human beings. These are: limitations on knowing ourselves – limitations on manifesting different forms of love – limitations on loving others and self – which expands into limitations on forgiving others and self – limitations on showing mercy, being kind, showing compassion, being unselfish, being patient with self and others, giving of our time, supporting others, long-suffering, limitations on how much we let go of judging and criticizing others, limitations on how much we let go of condemning others, limitations on our praying for others, on our meditations, and more.

Yet, for all times and half times, we will continue to be Infinite in our potential and capacity – made in the Infinite Creator’s own image and likeness – that image and likeness being Infinite.

Consider the Master Farmer seeking to create that which is the Infinite more of the One that is All – the All that is Love, and the Love that is One – and beyond our current chosen limited understanding . . . (but not really.)

God bless us, Everyone.

Karma Is and Isn’t

Karma is not a magic calculator that keeps tabs on everything. Karma is consciousness.

Karma is when the pebble is thrown into the Infinite Ocean and all drops of water experience the pebble thrown, – including the drop of water who threw it – and each experiencing the pebble thrown in different ways based on their own placement in the Infinite Ocean.

Karma isn’t a black box which something goes in and something comes out.

Karma is shouting “Hello” in the Grand Canyon and the echo going out to all points in the Infinite Universe. Each point of the Universe gets to hear the “Hello”, – including the point who yelled it – and all in different ways based on their position in the Infinite Universe.

Karma is not judgement.

Karma is our own getting to experience our own created action, thought or feeling. There is no judgment – only returning to us with some type of congruency to when we sent it out.

Our created action, thought and feeling, goes out to all things, because there is only One, albeit, Infinite Consciousness and this One Infinite Consciousness experiences all things within each consciousness which exists as part of the One Infinite Consciousness.

Karma is cause and effect, but not simply physics.

Karma is when we think a thought, any thought, and our toes experience the thought, because our body is altogether united and One with itself.

Karma is, …

because everything is alive and exists as United in One. We’re not always aware of karma, but we’re not always aware of this Oneness of Unity, either. We have much yet to learn and much more to which we can open our minds and hearts.

God bless us, Everyone.

In This Moment

Like a wave in the ocean, a moment comes and goes, lasting only a short time, existing within the ocean of eternity. The ocean existed before the wave of the moment came, and will exist after the wave of the moment leaves.

Like the wave that exists within the ocean, the moment exists within eternity,

Like the ocean that exists within each wave, eternity exists within each moment.

Every moment we experience is a moment of experiencing eternity. We are experiencing, as well as creating eternity with every choice of how we come and how we go. Every moment of eternity is a moment we are making a choice. Now is another moment of eternity. What do we choose for this moment of eternity?

On The Climate Crisis Again

As I continue to psychically look at the lines of time written in the sand, this is what I see:

With regards to the Climate Crisis which we now are living in and increasing, . . .

For all of our sakes, collectively the general attitude towards changing our living choices/behaviors and such, . . .

WARNING: Many things in this article will be very difficult to read and even MORE difficult to accept. I don’t even want to post this. But, it holds information.

Success, . . . reducing and reversing Climate Change, – is NOT happening, as it would need to, in order to stop or reverse the direction the climate is going. I’m seeing less and less transformation with regards to the collective consciousness in dealing with the Climate Crisis. Currently, those who oppose changing lifestyles – oppose changing government regulations – oppose changing behaviors – oppose changing from “convenient” to “inconvenient” truths – oppose putting the climate needs/Earth needs first — are choosing to not change their stance and choosing to not change. They work to oppose change, and will not participate. (It is their freewill choice given to them by God.) They strive to establish their influence in the behavior of many millions of people around the globe. This “no change” state of consciousness is still strong and therefore, delaying more and more the behavior changes which would prevent ever growing climate disasters in the Earth. It is a case of metaphorically but also realistically: Nero fiddling while Rome burns.

Those who work to support the changes needed – well, I equate it to being equal to: selling the change of behavior ideas, as if selling margarine on TV – “Try our brand of butter. It will help the climate.” As if suggesting to people, and enticing people into buying something. This approach to selling the Climate Crisis is not working. It is trying to convince people logically. It is based on the economics of changing the behaviors and thinking in the world. It is based on convenience as if it were simply a choice to make at the local grocery store. But, the results of climate change – the disasters that are happening to us, now, are not and will not be convenient in any way, because the destruction is happening to people – families, children, women, men, animals, livestock, pets and not just pocketbooks. These disasters don’t offer a choice for people to make. These disasters, that people now experience, and which people (we) are soon going to be experiencing more of, don’t ask politely, or say “please”. The disasters’ only “message” is “Here, people! This is now your life. . . and death.” The disasters’ only choice given to us, when these events happen, is “People, choose today – your life or your death, or your loved ones life or death.”

The people in question – who dominate the decision making around the world – in general, as a whole, are not strongly invested in changing lifestyles, nor are the people who elect them who want “something easy” and convenient. The tendency is to be strongly invested in living the way one always has lived in the past. This entrenchment – this anchoring of one’s life with the perspective which they grew up with – perspectives and beliefs like “everything is fine” – “there is nothing needed to do” – “we can keep on doing the same thing” – this state of consciousness, point of view, perspective, belief system, is so prevalent that it slows down any major changes which would otherwise prevent so much coming destruction. The entrenched belief for the most part is that these events may happen to humanity, but they don’t happen to individuals —- like me.

So, obviously this means that the events we’re going to see in the years and decades ahead will impact us all – the whole Earth – in more stark ways and in more direct ways as time continues. No human being on the planet will be safe from Climate Crisis events – some events of which can/could be diminished – if, collectively, there were stronger and more direct actions taken to change the directions humanity, as a whole, is going. Even though we are experiencing these events now, sometimes in small ways, we are the frog in the pot, with the temperature of the water going higher. For many, the pot is already boiling causing the deaths of families, children, women, men, animals, livestock, and pets.

It is as if, as a planet, we are driving down an old road, and the signs along the road, which are many, are saying “Do not use this road.” “Danger, road ahead is hazardous.” “Danger, bridge ahead is not usable.” “Turn around. Take another route. This route is not safe.” “Bridge is unusable”. Some people in the vehicle are saying, “let’s pay attention to the signs.”, while so many are still saying, “We’re fine. There’s no problem. We’ll keep going as is.”

8,000,000,000

The population of the planet is nearing 8 billion. I add this in, because this number is growing. This number is absolutely significant because of the impact on the planet – the resources needed to help 8,000,000,000 people live – the speed at which 8,000,000,000 people consume these resources – the waste and trash from 8,000,000,000 people who have consumed the resources – and the lack of any significant handling of the waste and trash of 8,000,000,000 people. Then add in the refusal of so many people to change many different behaviors related to any of these. Then add in the social beliefs, religious beliefs, economic beliefs, everyday beliefs, beliefs that “we should be able to do it without any economic inconvenience”, which are contrary to opening up our minds to different ways of thinking and living.

While we, collectively, have been changing based on behavior convenience and/or economic convenience, the results – some of which the Earth itself will create – that which we are going to face – are not going to be based on any form of convenience. Neither will these results allow anyone to have a choice. The impact is going to be on you and I – unless we are the ones that die. This means that the continued droughts will not be – are not – convenient, nor the hurricanes, or fires, the dwindling of usable water, the mass extinctions which are already happening, the pollution in the oceans, and reduction of food to feed the 8,000,000,000 going on 9,000,000,000 people. All of these will be/are very inconvenient.

That World?

What this also means is that the Covid Pandemic is not the worst problem we’re facing in the decades ahead. Vaccines have been helping a considerable amount, to return a “sort of” normalcy to how we live momentarily. But the climate crisis is decades long and even centuries long. So, there is no such thing anymore as normal. We don’t live in that world anymore. People will not ever live in that world on the Earth ever again, ….. at least not for hundreds or perhaps thousands of years. This also means in the US, (yes, this is a contributing factor in 200 years) that the US will one day break up into 3-4 different nations, in the 23rd – 24th century because of many factors which include responses and opposition to responses to climate change, as well as the lack of cooperation and the lack of political will to do what is needed.

If you consider this narrative to be negative, drastic, pessimistic, despairing, fatalistic, doom-saying, hopeless and defeatist, you’re right. It is all of that. The future starting today is written in sand. But, the future that started in 1900, 1945, and 1960 has already been written and is being fulfilled. The future starting 1980, 1990 and 2000 has already been written and is being fulfilled.

Then think of what you’d rather have — — someone crying out in the wilderness – someone yelling that the flood is coming so build an ark! Think about what it was like for Noah, who did listen to what he was told, and did build an ark. Think about how people around him responded to him trying to warn people.

The Biblical story is based on actual events and people. There was a massive upheaval that caused a great flood, and there have been other major Earth changes in the history of this planet, which caused supreme upheavals, major numbers of people who have died, – think Black Plague – think major flooding – think earthquakes – think tsunamis – think ever growing larger hurricanes – think about why Atlantis doesn’t exist above sea level anymore – and think about why people don’t even believe Atlantis ever existed – how this land was so completely and wholly removed from the face of the Earth – so much so that few believe it actually could have ever existed – thinking instead that it couldn’t possibly have happened because events that destructive could never have happened.

Hurricane Harvey

And then think man-made events which have caused great numbers of deaths, injuries, and destruction of property. Now, we’re faced with realizing that we don’t need bombs to go down the old road that leads to “Danger! Bridge out ahead! Your lives are in danger!” (I’ve decided to not even mention the most recent man-made mass-death disasters of Fukushima, the World Trade Center Attack, Nagasaki, Hiroshima, World Wars, the Holocaust, Small Wars, and how many people’s deaths are because of air pollution, water pollution, toxic living conditions, and the like. I don’t mention these mostly because of the fog of personal beliefs and opinions surrounding the consciousnesses when considering the impact of pollution – not realizing that 8,000,000,000 frogs are still sitting in the pot of water that is beginning to boil.)

No One Wants This

No one wants to experience these events of sorrow and suffering, much less think about them. No one ever wants to believe that these levels of destruction can be possible. No one ever wants to think that events like Fukushima or the Indonesian Tsunami would just happen with very little warning. No one ever wants to think that the signs on the side of the road, saying “Turn around, Danger ahead” are real. No one ever wants to think that we generally are making things worse, not better by continuing to live life as if there were no problems.

I Look Ahead

I look ahead and see 20 years from now, and then 30 years from now, and then 40 years from now – years that we may see – and since we are on this particular road – the road of “change only if it’s convenient” – and I see drastic differences – even between now to 20 years from now. It is because of this timeline that I see why the current dominant generation fights against changes – because it’s so hard to believe it’s real. It is because of the drastic Earth and climate changes that are coming on this road, that younger people work so hard to get older people to listen – trying any way at all to change the road at which we’re all driving down collectively. But, too many parents and grandparents aren’t listening.

It is also because we are collectively the frog in the pot of water that is coming to a boil. We don’t see the difference between Monday and Tuesday, or the difference between Tuesday and Wednesday. It all seems to be the same, and therefore, we find it easy to discount and ignore what others are saying – those others who are crying out in the wildernesses – those others whose names are “Noah” . . . or “Greta”. Those crying out don’t say what we want them to, so we tell ourselves anything to deny it – like “it’s all political”.

For so many of us, we are still sitting down and having a picnic on the train tracks. In the distance, there is some sound that sounds like a low whistle. We can choose to believe it’s only the wind – normalcy – and ignore it. But, there are some people over there yelling at us – something to do with a train – but we don’t see it, so we tell them to go away and leave us be, they don’t really know, and we’re not moving, because we don’t see anything. And it is easy to tune them out, turn off our hearing so that we can barely hear anything said or any now-faint whistles . . . or maybe it was wind, that we thought for only one split moment could have been a warning, which we found easy to forget. And so we continue with our picnic on the train tracks, while the tracks are shaking and vibrating more and more for some reason, and we don’t look up.

***

Is there any good news?

Yes. The good news is not just knowing that human beings are resilient, and the human species will survive the climate related destruction which has happened and will happen in the years, decades and possibly centuries ahead – and without needing to live in bunkers and horde guns and food – which is not helpful or wise. Yes, the human species will survive, but many individual persons won’t, as we’re watching each day in the world.

We have made magnificent transformational change all through the 20th century. The disasters which we have so far been able to avoid would have made today’s disasters look like just stepping into a rain puddle. So, it is possible. Yet, the struggle to move into more transformational change has been and is getting more difficult as more people choose to not participate, and instead, directly oppose helpful steps.

We cannot change those who exercise their own freewill given to them by God. But, we can take a look at our own actions and beliefs. We can take a look each day at what we could do on a particular day. We can take a look at our beliefs, our inner self work, our efforts at healthy living, our efforts at healing our relationships, our efforts at meditation and prayer, our efforts to cooperate with others concerning better decisions for our lives, and we can take a look at how we then may help others in their lives, as well. We can take a look at the different parts of our lives and with inner guidance, find answers to the questions of “What can I do, today, to help?”

Technology won’t save us, by itself. Technology does not have a heart or a mind, which feels compassion for men, women and children, and unity with other people. However, there are some newer technologies that are slow in making headway, which in decades ahead – in this century – will help to slow down the vehicle driving down that old road heading towards even greater disasters.

Technology: In fact, one example: in the 2020’s, Toyota and Honda car manufactures – already working on even better electric cars, will continue to make headway. Toyota’s stock and Honda’s stock are good buys and will be even better as the 2020’s continue and go into the 2030’s. Toyota is a steady good stock, being ahead of the game, and Honda will make a great breakthrough around 2026 that will cause their stock to shoot upward. (Buy, now, though.) And there are other tech areas which are worth mentioning.

Sadly, I see bad news about the Amazon jungle in South America – the size it is now, will be reduced to 1/2 of this size in only 15-18 years. (Do you remember 15-18 years ago? 2006?) There is little progress or willingness by those nations’ powers that be – to stop the devouring of the natural resources. This will trigger even greater numbers of hurricanes in the Atlantic, which will trigger many destructive changes and many lives lost along the US eastern coast – from Florida, all the way up to Virginia, with some hurricanes reaching Maine. Some islands in the Caribbean are foreseen to disappear underwater permanently. Land disappearing underwater has happened before, especially in the Atlantic.

Political Predictions

Politically speaking, Donald Trump will never hold a political office, again. Events in his life in 2023 will determine this. Joe Biden will win a second term in 2024. The disasters of 2023 and 2024 and the Biden administration’s response to help people, will help Joe Biden to win, as well as the Republican Party’s putting all their hope in Donald Trump. Trump won’t come through for them. If they were to reestablish leadership through other people, they would venture better, but for most of them, the strategy is to hang on to glory days and strategies of the past. New leadership for the Republicans will only come in 2026, when better people will move in place.

The presidency of 2017-2021 has served many things – one is to bring forth to the surface, making it known throughout the world, the differences in consciousness across the nation and across the world – those who wish to move forward on new roads of change and readiness for the future and those who wish to move back to using the old roads of past glory — those who wish to reject the call of working together (the call from the Light of the World) and those who wish to seek to build a better world for every peoples, which only comes from bringing forth the Light of the World — those who wish to unify and those who wish to divide — those who wish to increase diversity and those who wish to ignore diversity and choose sameness.

So many of us have had very painful awakenings regarding the people in our own lives, and the deeper beliefs and feelings which have come forth in discovery. Yet, because no one is all one side/way/beliefs or the other, we are called to continue to work to try to bridge the expanse between opposing beliefs, by letting go of judgement of those who have an opposing view. We are called to see the good in those who frustrate and discourage us, as well as know the experience of long-suffering – the suffering which comes from loving those to whom we can’t unite with because they reject unity. It is this that Christ felt when He looked upon Jerusalem and said, “So many times, I would have gathered you all into my arms, but you would not have me.” Christ does not give up and has not quit. Christ never left this world, because His work still continues through those who open the door to mercy, kindness, and forgiveness, when He knocks on the door to one’s heart.

A Minor Prediction for the 2030’s

In the 2020’s the Qphenomenon will grow significantly, and in the early 2030s, the Qphenomenon will come crashing down, because of discovery of the increasing continued criminal activities of its central core originators. What was started as more prank and joke than anything else, caught on because many people wanted ammunition for their prejudices and their fear of change. Qphenom creates this ammunition according to what their customers demand. It absolutely is possible to be misled if someone feeds us exactly what we already want to believe against someone.

HOPE

Yes, there is hope – in letting go of the past way of –
1. continuing to attack people in our minds, hearts and words,
2. behaving without awareness and
3. living without considering consequences.

There is hope in the letting go of
4. trying to get back to what made us comfortable back then – what we think must be easier.

There is hope in looking at our lives today, right now, and asking,

What can I do today?

There is hope in working at enacting new ways of living, and letting go of any old ways of living which brings harm in any form, held onto because we think these ways are easier. There is hope in thinking of ourselves as one member of a multi-member community, and enacting behaviors to further this thought, instead of as an individual who can go it alone. There is hope in looking for new ideas for living, new behaviors for living, new determinations for living.

There is hope in believing that God is not some THING far away, and must therefore not be interested much in helping with “my” facing life’s challenges and hardships. There is hope in believing that we do have help which we don’t even know about. There is hope in finding new resources within ourselves – finding new courage, finding new determination – finding new Willingness to learn and try. There is hope in believing that others “believe in me”. There is hope in believing in others, then in uniting with others.

As I’ve told people for decades, our best source of help – both giving and receiving – is at the local community level. All of us at the local community level are the ones who – when things go horribly wrong – are there with shovels, brooms, rubber boots, bottled water, and muscle to help dig us out of the mountain that just fell on top of us. There is especially hope when we are one of the people with the shovel trying to dig others out, because we then know that hope lives within our self. There is also hope when we care within our hearts for the people in our lives, our family, friends, community, because when we are involved in helping and being helped, we recognize the caring that is the same in someone else’s heart – someone standing right next to us wearing muddy rubber boots and working a shovel, just like us.

There is hope because God lives inside our hope – God is the Hope – God is the caring spirit – alive inside us. God is the Infinite Hope, never-ending Hope. God is the Infinite Caring – never-ending caring – caring about our lives and always working to help us get back up when we get knocked down. God is the one standing next to us carrying a shovel to help dig us out, and God is the one within our own self when we pick up the shovel and help dig someone else out.

Living through the times ahead will be very similar to how we live now, – but only in regards to our “Taking life one day at a time”. What will continue to drive us through living one day at a time is “Doing the best we can with what we have.” There is no going back to a world that will never return to us. But, there is going forward today – starting today – looking for new thoughts, new beliefs even, new ideas, and new actions and behaviors. The perseverance within humanity comes from doing the best we can with the life we live today, and then keeping an eye open to see if anyone else needs help to do the best they can with what they have.

We need most to check on ourselves and others to see if we’re the complacent frog, and we find our self inside a pot of water in our life, and it seeming more and more like the water is getting hotter. Or perhaps, we need to check to see if our hearing is okay, and listen harder for the whistle, while noticing the train tracks are shaking/vibrating even more, . . . then look up to see what is racing towards us and which cannot be stopped quickly – if at all.

Community does not ever mean and has never meant “me first”. It means all of us, together. It means no matter what road we find ourselves on, when we come to the old road, all of us together get our shovels and make the road better for all of us. It means when we come to the bridge that is too horrible for life, all of us together look for ways to build a better bridge to continue our lives together, knowing that we need each other – we need each other, because we’ve been designed to need each other – and we can, with hope, find ways to be the community which we need help from and which needs our help. . . . and sometimes, that community is the whole planet.

Epilogue:

As an individual person, we can only do what one individual person can do, affecting our own life and the lives of those around us. As people, we can only do what people can do. But, we can only do what people can do, if we unite with other people, cooperating, and working for everyone’s benefit, instead of using our own individual fear and prejudice as the weapon to strike out at others who are trying to gather people together to get on board the Ark. If we’ve never considered working with or never wanted to work with others around this before, . . . we can never be too late, if we begin and let today be day one. With today being day one, then the future which starts today, and only written in sand, so far, can be rewritten.

Think of the Ocean

Think of the Ocean

Think of the ocean with the waves coming upon the shore – among the grains of sand. Some water stays blended in with the sand, but eventually makes it back out to the ocean.

This is a metaphor for the entrance of souls into the Earth.

While in the sand, we think we’re part of the sand. We think we are sand – physical, and a product of the physical world – created as part of the physical world. But, we are only among the physical world, not of the physical world. We exist among the physical particles, but again, we’re the drops of water in amongst the sand. The sand is everywhere we look, except within.

The sand is so overwhelming to our awareness that we just forget that we are water. But, eventually, we make our way through the journey of physical life, back to the ocean. In this sand world, we call this return to the ocean, death.

In returning to the ocean, we change our consciousnesses again, and need to re-acclimate to the reality that we are among the water droplets that add to the ocean.

We are no longer among the sand which had overwhelmed our awareness and our consciousness which lead to our forgetting the ocean, again. And back in the ocean, we relearn of who and what we are.

And there are some among the sand who speak about the ocean to try to help the drops of water remember the ocean. And one drop of water came 2000 years ago and demonstrated the ocean to those who would listen and see. And He returned to the ocean and then returned to this sand world, at will, reminding other drops of water that the ocean is real, because water is real. And there are many others who try to share that we are drops of water- drops of the ocean – even though we are in the sand.

And we can take this metaphor as far as we want, because water droplets go everywhere in this world, yet always make it back to the ocean.

Even with some still thinking there is only sand.

***

Now, … think of how many drops of water of the ocean get to experience the sand with any of the the beaches of the planet.

And think of how many drops, and how much water in the “Ocean”, will never experience (touch) any sand.

This too, is a metaphor for the Infinite Expanse of Consciousness – the Infinite Consciousness of the Infinite All – that which we refer to as the Infinite Consciousness of God – and what yet awaits us when we “graduate” beyond this planetary plane of existence.

To move on, simply requires us to let go of everything we hold onto in this world – like hate, fear, condemnation, judgment of others, selfishness, blame, the closing of our mind and heart, etc . . .

… and embrace – willingness.

The Path Within

In the journey to try to know ourselves better, one question we all can ask of ourselves is this – how do I benefit from being unforgiving?

Or how do I benefit from being unmerciful?

Or how do I benefit from judging others?

Or how do I benefit from choosing to not be understanding of another person’s life?

Or how do I benefit from being impatient with others?

Or how do I benefit from being unkind to another?

***

Or, in turn, if we seek to know ourselves better, we can ask ourselves a different question, like …

how do i benefit from forgiving?

Or how do I benefit from being merciful?

Or how do I benefit from letting go of judging others?

Or how do I benefit from choosing to try to understand another person’s life?

Or how do I benefit from being patient with others?

Or how do I benefit from being kind to another human being?

A Path of Healing

***

When we choose to not ask deeper questions of our self, we can understand what goes on within us when faced with this, and then understand why others don’t ask these deeper questions of themselves, also. And hence why they don’t try to change, either.

When we choose to ask our self deeper questions, we can gain greater insight into ourselves, and perhaps one day use that insight and learning to choose better when relating to others.

Blessed, also, are they who ask self difficult questions, for they will gain the insight that leads to the path of healing, which leads to the path of change, which leads to the path of Loving Kindness.

Everything We See

More often than not, we don’t recognize God when God is present. We don’t know what to look for. We don’t know when to look. We don’t know how to recognize God. This is because we just don’t know that much about God. We can read that God is Infinite, or God is everywhere, or God is everything, but we just don’t see how this can be, and so we don’t see God. Jesus said, “Many will see and then believe, but blessed are they who don’t see, yet still believe.” The Edgar Cayce readings say that “Faith is the belief in things unseen.” It is also believing in things not understood in our minds and paradigms.

If we just don’t yet see God, then perhaps all we can try for is to believe that everything we see is God. We don’t yet have to understand it, but we can still believe it. After all, there are many things we don’t understand, but we still believe them. And there are many things that we see.

Everything we see is God. Now, that’s quite a thought, and quite a belief. Everything we see is God. Take a look around. Everything we see is God. There’s something about this belief that feels good. Everything we see is God. Keep your eyes open for now. Everything we see …

… is God.

Try it and see.

State of the Soul Address

The External World

Right now, in the US and the world, so many people are concerned, worried, fearful and many other feelings about our own nation, the world we live in – the world around us –  “The External World” – that which we see, hear, taste, feel and smell, all around us.

Some of us have spent our entire lives focused on the world around us, fixing, working, and accomplishing things in this world.  We may have reached nearing mid-life age or the end of our lives and instead of feeling fantastically accomplished and wonderfully fulfilled, we feel depressed, anxious, upset, resentful or angry, sometimes to the point of medicating ourselves to help us deny this.

So many of us can look at what we’ve accomplished out in the world in our lifetime, and start to experience deep within where it has become nothing but a whisper – that we haven’t changed the world as much as we wanted to during this life.  We haven’t gotten the insight that we thought we’d have.  We haven’t gotten from this path in the way we thought we would, so we get angry and upset, disillusioned and disappointed, and lost in wondering if what we did had any value at all.  If we haven’t made the world into what we wanted by the time we reach “NOW”, we may get depressed, or despondent and sometimes a sense of despair and deep loss may come up within us.

We can even take our anxiety and anger out on others – those who we feel are to blame for us not “changing the world” – not “making the world a better place”.  We see PLENTY of blame and attacks on social media.  We tend to take this anger out on people who we feel “got in our way” of making this world better or our life better.  The daily news shows the worst cases of how some people have demonstrated their utter loss and frustration through killing of others.

Regardless of which side of the fence we’re on with regards to any group or culture we belong to, so many times, we blame others for our own “not making the world into the better place that I wanted to make it into” – this includes not making our own personal, private world or circle into what we wanted to make it into.  We blame others, and …

… even our self (although we don’t always admit to blaming ourselves since “it’s obviously someone else’s fault”).

If we came into the world to make the world a better place for ourselves (and others maybe) “to fix the world”, and therefore, all our effort had been focused on changing the world around us – changing any part of this planet Earth back into a “Garden of Eden” for ourselves (and others, maybe) …

but yet, if we haven’t worked to change/fix/heal/better ourselves

… then we would have wasted our entire lives.

****

Life is not about fixing the external world around us, in which we’re living.  Many think it is.  We didn’t come into this world, with the #1 directive being to change the External World around us.  We didn’t come with the purpose in life being to change the Earth.

What so many don’t remember and acknowledge is the External World around us – all of it – is the mirror image of what is within us – the mirror image of what is within our consciousness, within our minds, within our hearts and within our souls.  The world that we see and “live inside” is the reflection of what is inside our consciousnesses. What we see around us is the reflection of all of us – what we have within us to work on to change. 

We have made the Earth into our own image and likeness.

Even if we did make great changes in the External World – the Earth – we would still return to whatever level of living/dying/creating/destroying we’re at as the human race – unless we make the great changes within ourselves first.

Change begins with One… then Two…. then ….


We are here to change our own consciousness.  We are here in this level of consciousness – in this “realm” we call the Universe – the Solar System – the Earth – to change our own selves – our conscious and subconscious minds, our hearts at both the  shallowest  and the deepest places within us, and our souls in their full existence.

If we haven’t put effort into changing our own self – we have wasted all the years in the world, and it is only natural that we’re going to feel deep inside our self – that we haven’t accomplished what we came here to accomplish – that we haven’t changed the REAL thing we came to change – our self.

The Portrait of Dorian Gray

Ultimately, this fact is true – if we’ve changed the world around us, but we haven’t changed our self, then we’ve accomplished nothing, because the world will simply eventually revert back to what it was – the reflection – the Earth and the world we think we see – like the portrait of Dorian Gray, which will always reflect that truth which is within us – the unchanged, unexamined issues, harmful emotions and the broken and injured relationships we have with our self and others.

Even now, the world reflects the conflict we have within ourselves – not just with others, but the conflict we have with our own self which we haven’t yet examined, or which we haven’t yet acknowledged or worked on.  It is very true that all of us have some conflict within us which we have not yet examined – waiting for us to get around to it when we have more time – “we’re just so busy, right now.  We’ve got a world to fix, after all.”

The reflection we see in the mirror – the world that we see around us – will continue as it is – as long as we avoid the inner work on the inner world we have within our inner selves.  This reflection is ourselves that we see in the mirror, and it is this that is within which is the source of what we see out there.

The New Reflection

When we change our mind and heart about our judgements, our criticisms, our bitterness, our resentments, our rages, our angers, our fears, our abuses, our attacks, our belittlements, our disrespects, etc. within ourselves, – changed into forgiveness and mercy, compassion, tolerance, loving kindness, understanding, patience with others and ourselves, etc., then we will begin to see the new reflection in the mirror of the planet.  Because some of us have done some of this work, we are already seeing some of this change, but our own part that we play in this change – this is what we must address – sooner or later.

When we address our own issues, then we will have changed the Inner Source of the reflection that we see in the External World around us.

It is when we bring these higher qualities forward when standing in the midst of the lower/harmful qualities. Not in the midst of someone else’s portrait of Dorian Gray, but OUR OWN.  Bringing forth our higher qualities of kindness, mercy, humility, and the others when we have previously brought forth our lower qualities – in the face of our self when we are wanting instead to react spewing forth any manner of negative and harmful qualities – this is the moment of true changing of the world.

***

Christ said, “With God, all things are possible.”  This means that with God – which is the Infinite Source of love, patience, determination, kindness, persistence, wisdom, forgiveness, mercy, compassion – all inner injuries can be healed.  This means that with God – which is love, patience, determination, kindness, persistence, wisdom, forgiveness, mercy, compassion – everything within us that we’ve lost, can be found.  This means that with God – everything about us that is a mess, can be cleaned up and made straight. This means that with God, everything about our real self forgotten can be remembered.   And this means that with God, everything broken within us, can be made whole.

It is with our effort then beginning from the center within us, that the Garden of Eden returns. Then does the Earth we want to have form, come into being. Because the Garden of Eden, the Earth we want to exist, is born from the Love and Kindness, the forgiveness and mercy, the patience and understanding, the determination, persistence, tolerance and compassion that one gives to our fellow human beings – all of them plus one – our self.

And, oh, yes, it absolutely is a challenge, … yet, once more….  as Christ said, “For man it is impossible, but with God, all things are possible” – even changing and growing within our self.

I would go so far as to say, that ONLY with God, is this possible.  

Having All the Answers?

When I hear someone say, “Black Lives Matter”, I imagine and believe their meaning with their words continues with “Black Lives Matter, Too”. I don’t get a sense that they’re trying to diminish any other person or group, because I imagine their experience is one of being and having been diminished by others. Still, this very well could be just how I think about this.

As I watch this and similar movements, questions come up for me. One question being is with those who say, “Blue Lives Matter.” Do they mean, “Blue Lives Matter, Equally” or do they mean “Blue Lives Matter, More” ? Do they believe that society diminishes those people who wear the blue uniform, and society considers them “less than”, and therefore this phrase needs supported? I don’t know. And I admit, this could be just questions that I have. Everyone else could already know for themselves.

When I hear someone say, “All Lives Matter”, do they mean “All Lives Matter, Equally” or are they also thinking “All Lives Matter, but not equally.” Again, I don’t know. It’s always up to the individual, as to what they think and feel – and what they reveal to others. And I can’t help but ask.

I know that we humans can say one thing and mean another. We can also say something, and have people misunderstand our meaning. And, I will still admit that all of this could be just me and how I think. Everyone else may already have all their answers.

May God bless every person’s effort to seek wisdom and understanding.

“Changing the world alone doesn’t change the world. Changing ourselves – our own hearts and minds – healing our relationships – expressing compassion and understanding – giving patience and kindness – this changes the world – more than anything we could do to the world.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2021, by Jodie Senkyrik)

Q-A: Truth vs Lies – What Fruit from What Tree?

I received this [conspiracy] E-mail [message] a couple of days ago… which you may have as well, & I’m overwhelmed at the specific info it entails. … This may or may not resonate with your intel, but have a look.” S.S.

My response regarding what the conspiracy email message says…..

Everyone of us, has our God-given freewill to choose our own path, our own beliefs, and our own choices about participation to learn and grow. This includes our choosing our own struggle with discerning truth and lies. Of our own freewill, we can even choose to be honest —— with ourselves and others – or we can choose to lie and mislead others and ourselves.

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/446700856774895812/

Yet, stepping back and looking objectively, when we consider the intentions or “agendas” of others, we can understand that every soul has both good and bad within us. We have both selfishness and unselfishness in us. As Edgar Cayce said in one of his readings, “There is good in the worst of us, and there is bad in the best of us.” There is no situation, circumstance, vocation, organization or anything where this is NOT the case. Everywhere there are human beings – souls – Edgar Cayce’s statement is true. No one is all good or all bad.

This principle of human character includes those people who have chosen to go into public service – our elected officials – who are people – souls – who have chosen this path (for many thousands of reasons,) and this truth does not change within them just because they disagree with each other and sometimes ourselves…. or just because they get accused and blamed – in other words, ‘demonized’.

There is no escaping the fact that we are all human beings, and they are all human beings, no matter how many times we humanly demonize these human beings inside our own human heads. They are people who experience all the feelings and emotions, ups and downs that all people experience. And there is bad in the best person who has chosen to be an elected official. There is good in the worst person who has chosen to be an elected official. —- As I said, there is good in the worst of people, and there is bad in the best of people.

When it comes time to decide who we trust, we must recognize this duality within ourselves, first. We have both good and bad within our self. At the same time, we must face that where trust is concerned, we do the best we can at figuring out who to trust and how to trust. And we don’t always get it right. If we try again, … and again and again, we can learn from our mistakes – whether it’s ourselves who bring both good and bad, or another person who brings both good and bad.

Because this principle of character is true, no one person is all trustworthy and no one person is all untrustworthy. Therefore, we must recognize that learning about trusting is a learning path only, and never a path of all-knowing who to trust and all-knowing who to not trust.

In our world, now, there are many that want us to buy into their version of the horrors of humanity and their version of the evils of the world, that they are willing to sell to us, with their intending us to follow their instruction on how to save ourselves from “All those others” who they claim “are the evil ones.”

It is very, very easy to sell fear, horror and evil. It is very, very easy to find ourselves overwhelmed, and then believe their claims of the horrors, which they tell us they alone can save us from – when they then tell us, they alone should be trusted.

Even if we are on any type of spiritual learning path, it is easy to be pulled away from the Truth which Christ teaches, because those who sell the story of the evils of others, yell loudly and scream often. They tell us that they alone know what is going on with the evils of the world, and they alone know who is at the center of the evil.

But yet, at the same time, Christ teaches Truth with a soft voice which quiets fear and turns away wrath, which makes us to lie down in green pastures and leads us beside still waters – from the place of loving kindness. We can ask ourselves, is there a stillness or kindness in those that sell their version of horrors and fears?

Christ teaches from patience and from compassion. Does anyone find patience and compassion in the messages meant to further demonize, or warn others to fear the “evil people” which they selectively chose for us?

Christ teaches from forgiveness and mercy. Does anyone find forgiveness and mercy in the writings of those who want us to follow their version of their fear reality and their version of their “secret truth”?

Does anyone find support for mankind’s brotherhood, encouragement for God’s Unending Acceptance and Love, or help with God’s unity and understanding in the writings that tell us that we should be afraid of the people who they tell us to?

If we find no love, no forgiveness, no mercy, no compassion, no patience, no kindness, no brotherhood, no understanding towards others, no support, no courage, no unity with Life and with other human beings, in these writings, or what they tell us, then Christ is not the source of what they offer, nor does He have any connection with it.

They live from triggering adrenaline by their words, selling panic and worry, and marketing fear, for the purpose of bringing harm and abuse, for their own gain. They will sell their panic, worry and fear to anyone who tends to have little interest in seeking God’s Truth, or who does not care about what Christ has to offer. They will sell themselves as “savior”, and claim only they have “truth”.

The Edgar Cayce readings will always tell us that there is good in the worst of us, and bad in the best of us. This reality helps us to see that all of us are equal in our struggles and challenges of being human, and also equal in the eyes of God, who Loves us without reservation – and without even thinking twice about it – all of us equally regardless of how many times we stumble and how great we create a mess in the world.

Eventually, we come to realize that we have the freewill to choose which we act on – which we decide to bring into the world – the good or the bad, the selfish or the unselfish. We then step forth in doing the best we can with bringing forth our choices.

In the same way, we have freewill to choose what to bring into the world with regards to: fear or love. The Light offers kindness, compassion, encouragement, forgiveness, mercy – this FRUIT from the TREE of Christ’s teachings of love, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, brotherhood, courage, faith and the like. Those who peddle fear offer fruit from the tree of fear: separation, isolation, hatred, anger, abuse, harm, confusion, darkness and despair – for these are what grow from the seeds of the fear being sold.

What do we then choose to give to others? What do we then choose to give to those we love? From what tree do we choose to give fruit? There are many of us souls who will choose – of our own freewill – fear and all that grows from this fear. There are many of us souls who will choose – of our own freewill – love and all that grows from love. But, we cannot choose both at the same time. We cannot choose both good and bad at the same time.

We choose day or we choose night. We choose light or we choose the dark. And we choose LIFE or we choose DEATH. We choose Love or we choose fear. But, we choose. And, we choose every single day. And we choose every single hour and minute and second.

We are called to learn, as best we can, what Christ offers. We are called further to try to put the seeds of the Tree of Love within our hearts, so that we can bring forth the fruit which is kindness, compassion, patience, courage, faith, forgiveness, brotherhood, courage and more. If we don’t know what Christ offers, we need only ask Christ directly, “Lord, what do you offer me – me, who is your brother and sister?”

Who do we want as our savior?

Choose.

Meditating for 1 Million Years

1 Million years of meditation

Many, many of us have meditated or do meditate.  Now, using one’s imagination, and keeping an open mind, what can we imagine would be the transformation which happens within us, (just think about it for a moment), if we meditated for 1 million years. Keep an open mind here, and allow yourself to entertain the thought about this —-

—- if we meditated for 1 million years.

Imagine the level of transformation which we might be in or become aware of, or join with.

Again, think of the transformation of 1 million years meditating.

Now, tell me how important is it to be a part of the conflict going on in the United States? or in the world?

Which would you prefer to experience? The conflict with other’s opinions and points of view during this time period? during everyone’s learning paths? 

…. or to allow oneself to be a part of a transformation process which has us transform our existence in this Earth, and our existences in whichever levels of life expand into greater than just this Earth?

Would you be surprised to come to learn that the path for, and of this transformation – helped by meditation – is our destiny?

We are on this 1 million year path of meditation and transformation, (and longer yet.)

We are taking steps on this path each and every day.

And yes, we can get off the path at any time, and join in on the conflicts in the world, in the US, in our own state, in our own family….

And sometimes, we do…

And we can get back on our path of our 1 million years meditation – back to feeling the peace, joy and wonder that comes when we return to our path.

And when we are on our path of meditating for 1 million years, we can say to our struggling brothers and sisters, “God bless you.” …

… and feel how much we really mean it in our hearts, in our minds, and in our souls, … when we say it.

So, join me in saying it to all life in this world and beyond ….

… God bless us, Everyone.

Psychic Predictions for 2021

A Psychic's View of 2021:  Psychic Predictions for 2021

INTRODUCTION

When reading psychic predictions, watch for when different psychics agree on topics and the outcomes. These topics and predictions have the highest chance of being accurate, but don’t discount the predictions which only 1 or 2 psychics predict. Each psychic has areas in which we are more able to focus and give accurate predictions. Each psychic has areas of better accuracy.

With my predictions pages, each year’s predictions also hold predictions of further into the future. So, go back and reread previous years predictions also since they may have something about this year or next year.

(Within the body of these predictions, I use blue lettering to show possible assistance with the predictions. At the end, during the QUESTIONS part, I use different colored lettering to show different people who submitted questions for these predictions.)

Stay True

We are in times when greater effort to stay on one’s spiritual path, to keep working at one’s spiritual studies and practices, to practice loving kindness, forgiveness, mercy, patience, compassion, aware of long-suffering, WITH CONSCIOUS INTENT when responding to life’s challenges and problems – is important and will help. We are in times when it is important to “Be true to our own heart.” It is a time to try again, whenever we “stumble and fall,” with our intents to manifest Love. This, and only this, will bring us into the New Age of Mankind on Earth, with our Higher Selves as the potential ever-stronger guide helping us through our Earth plane challenges.

Our Human Family

The Family of Man is still a family regardless of how embattled we are. Remember, as with all life – for the human race, also, no darkness can extinguish the Light. It is the Light which, when manifested, with effort, can light up where it has been dark. And when the Light is increased, those who have been afraid, and blinded in the dark, can be found and brought to Peace, Compassion, and the Loving Warmth of the Spirit of Infinite Peace, … Never-ending Compassion … and the Loving Warmth of the Light who’s Infinite Love has no conditions whatsoever.

This Time in Existence on Earth

We are at a stage equal to a mother having contractions rushing to the hospital to give birth. A New Age of Mankind is real and is coming. This will be visible through the changes in how we work to find ways for all people to live their lives on this planet – ie. less war as the way to solve problems. More effort to negotiate and find ways to get along. People will come forward saying, “We need to find ways to work together to find solutions to these problems” instead of what we have today which is “I’m not working with them to solve anything.”

Meanwhile, we have entered the 6 years of low energy, dark energy, less light energy, less love energy, I’ve been warning about. 2020 showed us the level of difficulty and pain that we’re going to face (in ebbs and flows like the tide, sometimes better, sometimes worse) over the next 6 years. Many different events will contribute to this, but as I describe in the previous paragraph, and as the previous paragraph shows in words, – with a transformation and a change of heart within us, and A WILLINGNESS WITHIN OUR HEART to choose a better response to one another, we will find ways to help make all of our lives better – and during this next 6 years – making our lives better one day at a time. Either we can accept the darker atmosphere of the times and repeat them – or we can step up and willingly build the better way of living our life which we want to be in the world. In other words, we build the better heart-centered ways of living (relating to each person) or the destructive, conflict-motivated world’s ways of living (which we can see in so many arenas) will continue.

Never underestimate each prayer prayed. Never underestimate each time one stops and sits in meditation.

Added 1/6/2021: The future can be changed. Always remember this. We can change the road on which we’re driving, by changing our decisions and choices.

THE PANDEMIC

I’ve mentioned this before, that vaccines will be available to the general public beginning in the Spring mostly. Around the world, the process of vaccinating will go through the spring, summer and fall for the majority of those people who will step forth and get the vaccine. I’m psychically seeing the vaccine being safe and helpful. For one, it will help ease the strain on the psyche of people. Secondly, it will be effective …. for the vast majority of people. There will be a small percentage that have unique physical bodily circumstances which will make the vaccine less effective.

There will still be a vast majority of Americans who won’t get the vaccine, thus facilitating the continuation of Covid-19. I see the vast majority of future cases being with people who don’t get the vaccine. Because of this choice some people make, the spread will continue and there will be many who get re-infected. Without the vaccine, for many, each time a person gets infected, (and it is possible to be reinfected) the result can be cumulative, and therefore, worse.

Of the people living in the US, I see many reasons for why some people consider this a fight for individual rights. However, it’s not the fight people promote it to be. While some consider it the right to not believe what the government is saying, it is more the fight to have freewill, and say “NO!” Deep down, subconsciously this has little to do with the government. It has more to do with the fight for freewill and the right to consider worldly warnings (of all kinds) to be less important, and unconsciously perceiving that the opposition is not on the spiritual path, either.

This manifests as opposition to anything The Opposition promotes – and on the surface, it looks like the fight for the right to ignore education, ignore healthy ways, ignore the health of others, ignore the physical needs of others, ignore safety steps, ignore the need to diminish fear. But, deeper in the unconscious, it is the fight for the right to say “NO!” to other people who ALSO are not manifesting the spiritual principles of Love God above all else and love your neighbor as yourself. It is the right to unconsciously oppose anyone who does not have a spiritual center to their cause. ALL OF THIS IS ON THE UNCONSCIOUS LEVEL. It manifests as “I don’t know the best way, but it sure isn’t the way you promote.” While both sides unconsciously think the struggle is to do with the Earth and making it better, unconsciously they are motivated by the spiritual path calling to them, rather than an Earthly path calling to them. The call to the Spiritual path of the inner challenges is what all souls are called to answer. Yet, with Freewill, all souls have the choice as to when we answer the real call.

Again, on the surface, it appears like it is the song which goes, “It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to, cry if I want to, cry if I want to…..” As it has been for all of us at some time in our many lives, it is a statement to people and the world, “It’s my life and I’ll die if I want to, die if I want to, die if I want to….” And all of this is coming from the unconscious, that comes to the surface, manifesting as a fight against the authority which they see as also being inauthentic and false. See!? In the arena of governments, it is a fight against authority who is seen as being inauthentic – not true to oneself – being misled by an inauthentic spirit of judgment, criticism, condemnation, ridicule, and arrogance. To see this more….

In terms from the Bible, this falls within the story of the prodigal son, who leaves the father and family, taking off to fulfill his own desires. While the prodigal son is saying “No!” to be dutiful to the father and then leaves, the elder son stays at home, does what the father tells him, leading the life of the dutiful son. Meanwhile, the elder son feels resentment when the father kills the fatted calf upon the return of the prodigal son, the elder son feels cheated and betrayed by the actions of the father celebrating the 2nd son’s return.

The fight is for the right to not be the dutiful son (because it also is not authentic) – but rather the son that leaves others and takes off to fulfill his own desires. This is the fight for the right to serve one’s own self because of the inauthenticity of the other side – the elder son. This is the fight for the right to say that even the dutiful son has selfishness within him, and so there’s nothing special about being a dutiful son. A dutiful son has inner faults – is self-centered, too.

It is forgiveness, mercy, patience, tolerance and kindness, to the enemy who is not the enemy, which is what the race of people are called towards, and ultimately it is true – “If there is no forgiveness, (even of ourselves) there will be no Peace on Earth”. And to those that have ears to hear, the path of long-suffering is still one that is necessary to continue to walk.

The Covid-19 virus will be with us, going through the world’s population in large scale, until 2023, for the most part. The vaccines will bring the numbers down, but not to zero. Like the medicines for HIV and AIDS, the medicines and vaccines will get even better with time. We will not see the end of Covid-19 in 2021, but rather a lessening that comes with being vaccinated – with a vaccine that is not 100% perfect.

WEATHER IN 2021

THE PLANET

The weather of the planet as a whole is now to be considered extreme compared to decades ago. This is now the standard to be expected. The natural disasters which we’ve seen are going to continue. There’s not much more I can offer with predictions, because for the most part, all over the planet, we now know what we’re going to face from here on out. So much of this that I share here, won’t be a surprise at all. Like I say, sometimes, you don’t need to be a psychic to see this coming.

The Northern Hemisphere: The weather patterns in 2020 are a close predictor of the patterns in 2021. What I see is, in the Northern Hemisphere, the changes will be that the arctic patterns which usually come down in certain patterns will shift some to the west. The ice sheets melting and the warming of the waters in the northern Arctic are causing shifts in different area atmospheric temperatures which triggers the forming of different pressure zones. It is these pressure zones which are strong enough to trigger shifting of wind patterns westward. The patterns will be similar to 2020 but they will be more westward in their paths and positions. On the planet, the arctic winds will bring lower winter temperatures than usual and somewhat earlier. The climate warming on the planet is like a pot beginning to boil. The more heat – rising temperatures – the more agitation caused by pressure. The more agitation, the more mixing and churning of winds and waters which speeds up the changes happening. This impacts everything.

As a result of these changes happening globally, the ocean floor is changing and shifting, as well. This is and will continue to be affecting the Earth’s mantle, which contributes to land/crust/mantle pressures which contribute to earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic activity around the world.

In the US, for the most part, the different regions of the US have now had several years taste of what to expect in the next few years, so there’s not much new that I can offer to prepare anyone. Expectations and preparations should be in place.

But even so, January and February, 2021, will have it’s share of winter storms, but the regular weather in between storms will not be that different from storms. I’m seeing serious cold temperatures, but not a lot of moisture in the western states. Cold temperatures but dry. I see people as they live their lives acclimating to the more severe cold – getting used to the fact that the weather is going to be more extreme. Extremes are becoming accepted as the norm. The dryness will affect the spring snow melt which usually provides water to the western states. With less snow in many (but not all) parts of the Rockies, this means dryer conditions during the spring and summer, which will lead to more fires for the western states during 2021.

The US Midwest, which usually counted at some point on intermittent relief from Arctic weather at different times, will experience longer freezing times. But, again dryer than usual. The New England states will experience solid below freezing winter temperatures and then a sharp and immediate rise in temperatures about mid-March. (But more freezing winter temperatures again, then, earlier than usual in November, 2021.)

The US summer temperatures will spike making it hotter! Again! Setting records again! No surprises there. And as people acclimate to the hotter temperatures, like the frog in the boiling water, little will motivate those who don’t want to be motivated with respect to supporting any steps to curb human behavior contributing to global warming. However, the feelings of these being drastic times will prevail. (Hurricanes are mentioned under “Natural Disasters”)

By doing very little to change our current state, we are guaranteeing that children born now will see the climate crisis be many times worse than today. How much worse? Imagine summer drought and temperatures 9-11 months out of the year.

Across continental Europe, 2021, I see more rain in large amounts – not spread out but more rain in shorter time periods, causing flooding in some places where flooding is not expected. This is a general statement, and Europe is a large area, but Europe as a whole will be dryer. This seems contradictory, but it isn’t. Dry over time with short times of dumping of lots of rain.

The spring of 2021 will be India’s worse weather time in 2021 because of the massive rain, and the rain bringing the massive numbers of mosquitoes, which brings more disease. I see Covid surging again helped by the weather. Even with the promise of the vaccine, India will be overloaded with people getting infected with more than just Covid.

Antarctica

In the Southern Hemisphere, we’ll see more warming of the Antarctic waters. One doesn’t need a psychic to see this happening. It’s already happening and will continue. What I see: the warming of the waters will cause stronger currents in the Antarctic area as warm and cold waters mix. I see this happening at greater depths. This will trigger more “churning” of the waters in the ocean currents at greater depths. This churning will continue to impact ocean currents all over the world, which will speed up the rate of warming as waters of around the world mix with each other more. This will also trigger a slow but consistent change of the ocean’s floors and landscape. All of this will affect ocean life of all kinds.

Australia

Australia will have a very dry winter, come May, June-August. Drought conditions will happen again. Each year of the 2020’s will bring more drought for Australia. At the end of the 2020’s is when I see drought conditions lessen.

Added 1/3/2021 – Covid-19: I see Australia as a whole plateauing with infection numbers now until mid-February (a little bit of a rise, but for the most part on an unsmooth plateau) and with efforts, and vaccines, I see your national numbers begin to slowly go down in March thru April then a little more in May.  Slowly go down with cause for optimism being recognized especially during the summer.  
But, not having the numbers end altogether for a few more years.  However, it will be much better, and more medicines coming out – including more vaccines during those years.  
Australia’s main challenge/hard issue – the ones that generate tension and aggravation  besides politics will be the climate crisis throughout most of Australia, for the decade – drought conditions, and fires again especially in 2023-2024.  As always, I see prayer helping – especially helping people to cope.  Around 2028, drought conditions will become less.  
I see the Australian people being determined, and some technological enhancements bring forth some help where water is concerned.  As the decades progress, you will see even more technology help with acquiring water from the oceans and some from the atmosphere.
Meanwhile, life goes on and you will see conditions for Medical workers become less stressful on the whole, for the medical personnel throughout Australia, in the 2021 summer, then more through the end of year and into 2022 to the end of 2022.     I see a vaccination rate eventually reaching to a mid-90’s percentile rate.

I recommend programs for the instruction of meditation for medical personnel.  
And, like I say, the more prayer and meditation, the more help and change.

The Middle East

During the summer, there will be temperatures in the 120’s again. A few more heat records will be broken in 2021, and in subsequent years afterwards.

I’ll add more areas, as people request these areas to be looked at, but there’s not much more I can add that isn’t already recognized to be part of the climate crisis, and therefore expected.

In general, the Earth itself, as a whole, is getting warmer and the weather patterns will become more erratic, even noticeably more erratic in 2021 than was in 2020. Climate change is real. If it were not, I would be able to see that it would not be. Instead, I see that it is.

As I write this, I’m more aware of the need for good news. The good news comes from ourselves – we make our own good news by taking actions to counter this trend. If we don’t make any good news of our changing our individual behaviors and in turn, collective behaviors, there will not be good news. If we don’t act in ways that help, there will not be any good news. This includes the actions of praying and meditating.

So, I present what I have here to help people prepare for what is coming into manifestation. Remember, we choose the roads on which we drive. If the road leads to problems and we as the human race choose to stay on that road, we must face the problems which we have chosen to happen. No amount of wishing, hoping or magical thinking will change the road by itself. Remember the definition of the word, Insanity. In this case, it means driving down a road full of problems and thinking if we keep driving down this road full of problems, sooner or later it will change to not having problems. OR being out in the sun without sunscreen and getting sunburnt, then thinking that if we stay in the sun longer, then something will happen and our sunburn will go away.

I’m phrasing all of this in mostly harsh terms because – worse than the words I use, is the climate and weather which we will have. Prayer and meditation will always help. The more prayer and meditation, the more help. Prayer changes the weather, because prayer changes that which is human made. Ultimately, human consciousness effects the weather. Human behavior creates climate change.

THE ECONOMY

World wide, the economies of each nation is related to how each nation has responded to Covid-19. Those nations that have been strict and disciplined in handling the pandemic will fair better in their economies. Those nations that have been less disciplined and have suffered greater outbreaks of Covid-19 will suffer worse economies.

The economy of nations will NOT bounce back quickly as the vaccine is distributed. In all of 2021, I see very sluggish economies in general. The economies are related to Covid-19’s spread and/or containment.

THE UNITED STATES

In the US, the vaccine will help as it is slowly distributed throughout the country. The economy will not spring back quickly, though. The economy will suffer, because there has been a non-strict response from the people, thus creating more avenues for the virus to spread. As the vaccine is taken, through 2021, the opportunity is present for businesses to start back up, but it will be as any other start up at a time when the general population as a whole, the people – don’t have money to spend. In addition, there will be many who refuse the vaccine, thus keeping Covid spreading.

People have mentioned herd immunity. I am looking at this psychically. What I see psychically is that for “herd immunity” by itself to be relied upon (without vaccines) with the human species and Covid-19, 1 to 2.3 billion people would die first. 40-50% of the people on the planet would be infected. This is what would happen if we only relied upon “herd immunity” to help us. Out of every 8 people, 1-2 of them would die- 1 to 2 billion people. Of those 6 still alive, (out of 8), 2-3 more would be infected. Those not infected would mostly be people not exposed to it. If every human being on the planet were exposed to it, the death rate would be 35% of the world’s population, 1 in 3 people. It would rise because many would be exposed several times, impacting them, making them weaker, with each time. The “herd immunity” would develop in about 40-50% then of those remaining alive. This is what I see psychically about “herd immunity”. (Think in terms of the last of the plagues of Moses. The death of the first born in all families.) The real problem with it, though, is that so many people who support the herd immunity path would expect death to happen to “other people” rather than themselves and their loved ones.

EUROPE

Europe’s economy will fair somewhat better than the US. With different social rules in handling the pandemic, they will have a different foundation for reopening their businesses. They are in different circumstances – with their regions being smaller. So, the pandemic impact on the economy was less in some of the regions which will act as a quicker starting point for reopening and thus reigniting the economy. While they also have experienced increasing numbers being infected, they are in better positions in combination with the vaccines, and thus can recover faster.

THE MIDDLE EAST

The OPEC nations will have a very slow economic recovery, because oil will not yet return to it’s previous economic demand levels. Traveling and commuting to work, as well as other driving situations will not return to it’s pre-pandemic high levels in 2021. So, the oil producing nations will not yet have the demand for oil. The demand will go up in 2022, but there will also be other factors which will be working against the oil industry.

AUSTRALIA

Australia’s economy will also be slow in recovering. In the early 4 months of 2021, there will be no change in the Australian economy. There will be some effort to jump-start the economy at the beginning of May/June/July, but this will be less than successful because the people will not be “moving” the economy like usually happens. The Australian people will be cautious, and so the government’s efforts to bypass normal recovery methods will be only partially (small amount) helpful. At the end of 2021, the last 3-4 months, is when Australia’s economy will start improving. The people drive the real economy. The government only reports it.

Many governments, in general, all over the planet will be reporting better economies even though they won’t be better at the level the governments report. The governments report better in order to encourage people to spend. The economies will be slightly better, but one cannot have a healthy economy without the people driving it, and the people will decide for themselves when to spend – especially when people don’t have the money to spend.

JAPAN

Japan’s economy will have many higher highs and lower lows. They have worked harder to contain the virus and so this action will help in some areas. But, there will be deeper than normal cycles in Japan, when it is better sometimes and not better other times. Japan’s economy is one of the main economies in the Pacific/Asian area. Other nations will be and are now, being affected by Japan’s. As Japan’s economy sllloooooooowly stabilizes, this will help the other smaller nations’ economies.

INDIA

India’s economy will be sluggish all year long, with hope only coming in the last 3 months of the year. They will be struggling with many diseases including stronger outbreaks of Covid. Remember, the people of India in your prayers, as I see much misery as India’s predicted scenarios manifest in people’s lives. The frontline medical workers will suffer greatly as well – not just in being infected but with seeing so many people, almost a seemingly never-ending number of people, needing medical help. I see the sorrow and suffering and ask for all who read this to remember the people of India in your prayers, and please let your prayers be often.

THE PHILIPPINES

Added 1/3/2021: The economy for the Philippines is connected a lot to neighboring Asian countries, with some economic connections to the US. This means there will be more fluctuation than one might expect. The Pandemic’s effect on other nations in the region affects the Philippines’ economy. The Pandemic’s effect on the Philippine people has a great effect, also. Infection numbers are still on the rise slowly in the Philippines and I see this continuing with a plateauing happening March/April with the vaccines getting to the Philippines slowly. Getting the vaccines to all the people of the Philippines will be a slow process, but as time continues, by the end of 2021, will reach around 92% of the population. Slow, but it will happen.

NIGERIA

In general, Nigeria is an active Nation with many aspirations and hopes. It is also a country that faces suffering from the sorrows of many citizens. It is also diverse in what each region provides to the people who live in those regions. I see constant efforts to grow it’s economy. I also see that with these efforts comes imbalances in societies’ arenas that are yet to grow. These imbalances causes some civil unrest which will happen at different times, mostly from people who struggle, but don’t feel they’ve been able to grow out of their life circumstances. I also see that there are some who seek to take what they want through terror and killing.
There is sometimes a belief that the desired changes for a better society should come fast, but there is a lesson here and that is “anything built fast can be torn down fast.” and “anything built with patience and attention to all details will last a longer time.” This includes relationships and includes social change.
There is also a belief by those who use death, that they can take what they want and nothing will happen to them. But, Christ said it to His own followers and it is true for all humans, “He who lives by the sword, will die by the sword.” While this truth is not always visible to humans, it is visible to God. It is true in all things. Those who live by selfishness will be remembered this way in death. Those who live with prayer, will be remembered this way in death.
The prayers of many can help Nigeria. I can also say, unceasing prayers of a few can also help Nigeria. With each prayer, another moment in time is changed. With more prayers comes more help and change and growth.
In addition, there is hope in all nations. There is sorrow and suffering in all nations. All human beings share all things that human beings are within themselves. May God be with Nigeria.

As the Northern African nations try to grow, with the hope of becoming a world player (united together as an African coalition) the pressure will be on Nigeria to make social changes – as will the pressure be on many African nations – with these social changes be to help the citizens of Nigeria. Slowly dying are the decades of days of any one nation being isolated and thus susceptible to harmful policies serving only few in power. But, these changes also happen slowly and can even take a generation or two, after the old ways (and some people) die off, in their turn, and new people, with different ideas and ways of living, come forth. It is a slow process, but a trustworthy process.

STOCK MARKETS

The stock markets around the world will remain active with trading. There will NOT be a downward depression-era-like spike which brings great disasters in any nation. There is active trading with the normal Ups and Downs. In 2021, we will see activity, but there will be a slow increase in the amount of trading. On the whole, there is anticipated hope and expectation, which will be driving trading. There is also much “talk” about disasters looming from pundits, but there will be more hope and expectation than talk of disaster. In the Autumn months of 2021, I see sluggish trading in the stock markets, because traders will not have seen a fast economic recovery which they believed would happen.

I DO NOT SEE any massive downturns in the economy which so many are warning will happen. I DO NOT SEE any economic collapse that many political pundits predict. I DO NOT SEE great political or financial armageddons or disasters brought on by the new administration. I DO SEE why people are saying that this will happen, and therefore I see the need for tolerance and patience, and for our understanding as to why they say this that they say, much of which is based on fear, …. and money.

These statements and beliefs of fear of financial disasters will slowly diminish somewhat from the people (not from the pundits) as months and a few years goes on and the fears do not manifest in nationwide and worldwide fashion. However, as the 2020’s progress, statements and beliefs of fear based on political results will continue, because, in all honesty, a lot of people are paid a lot of money to say we’re facing impending societal doom based on the political results — paid Lots of money — LOTS more money than people realize being paid to those who are willing to help sell the concept that doom, based on political results, is coming.

If any of us got paid as much money to sell “societal doom” as those hired to sell doom, we’d probably be selling doom, as well. The selling of doom is a business, and the doom business is booming, especially under the current political hostility and antagonism that people are choosing for themselves. It is the best time to sell doom – the early 2020’s. Many people are hired and paid good money with this “business”.

Meanwhile, the business of selling normalcy – things progressing as usual – doesn’t pay that well. After the adrenaline washes its way through the person, and all the excitement is over, and all the selling of their own particular brand, … then our lives go on. We keep on keeping on. We take life one day at a time. We breathe in and out. We wake up in the morning and go to bed at night. We get back to struggling to deal with our day-to-day issues and bills and all the things we have going on in our own lives. We get back to the basics of surviving and loving our families and friends. We get back to trying to find ways to help make our lives better and help make the world a better place than how we found it.

Human beings are versatile in finding solutions and persistent and dogged in living these livable solutions, even when inconvenient and “not pretty”. The solutions that work are the ones that we can “get our hands on” locally. Many small solutions will be found in the local communities rather than the Federal Government. The strongest arenas for economic growth, are in local economies. Human beings are creative, persistent, and don’t give up easily. This is best demonstrated and most effective through efforts in local communities. These qualities and the qualities of determination and believing in oneself and one’s God, will help people keep on keeping on. The collective effort of people trying to just live our lives, around the globe, will prevent any worldwide financial Armageddon.

*******

BITCOIN

While this is a niche market, it will remain a niche market and will not become a readily usable global currency. However, it will continue to be available for a few high speculators throughout the 2020’s decade. Still, it will remain at the level of being a novelty, or much like how stocks are traded, and not become the world currency that some people say it will. It is too volatile, has too many quicksand problems, isn’t “safe”, and cannot be stabilized. The collective consciousness of the human race will not partake of it on a mass consciousness level. The collective consciousness of the human race uses that which already works and/or that which enhances what already works.

Bitcoins will not be replacing paper currency and coinage. Paper money and coins are here to stay for decades and decades yet to come.

*******

GASOLINE PRICES

We won’t see very much change at the gas pumps in 2021, because the economy is going to be sluggish on the whole. This affects gas prices all along the supply chain producers, and so we’ll see a small increase, but for the most part, in 2021, they won’t move much.

*******

WATER SOURCES (Sources and Quality of Human-use water)

2021 is not a good year for water sources for human use, worldwide, but all the problems with the quality of the water we use will go almost unmentioned because of all the other issues on the forefront of our attention. The amounts of usable water on the whole, will diminish in 2021, and so 2021 is really a year where the “use water” will slip further closer and closer towards a line of scarcity which will be the theme of the 2020’s. Individual nations will begin addressing this as the years move on.

*******

PHARMACEUTICAL CORPORATIONS

While the Pharmaceutical Companies are the heroes of creating the vaccines to combat Covid-19, this creates a difficult problem for the people of the US. The drug companies have been Super-Influencing health and medical fields and political policy of “drug-use only for treatments” for many years, and I see that this will solidify their positions and influence in the US Congress even more, as well as in some other nations even more. I see this meaning the drug companies will work to have more say-so over Alternative Health Remedies, over supplements, and will have more influence over any medical practice that does not include drug use and drug purchases.

In addition, I see that US medical schools will readily move further into teaching drug-based treatments as the treatments required in many medical problems. The healing philosophies and practices of Alternative or Holistic Medicine will be more and more viewed in teaching arenas as what should be avoided.

The Internet will continue to grow where people go to get more and more non-drug-based medical information and treatments. I’m seeing that Alternative practitioners and organizations will present more and more information to help further Alternative and Holistic Medical knowledge strengthening the ability to get information to people who it may help. There will be some misinformation, as well. Make no mistake, there are very useful Alternative and Holistic Medical treatments and techniques which do bring healing. AND – God is the source of all healing – regardless of the method or treatment through which this healing comes. Even Jesus mixed a mud mixture and put it on the eyes of a man, leading to his healing. (This was to work with the man’s own consciousness which was open to practical (mud) and spiritual methods of healing – thus his healing occurred.)

These alternative medicine websites eventually will be targeted in order to get the websites shutdown. The efforts to keep them open will continue, but it will be a struggle. This path of attempting to shutdown alternative and holistic medicine methods of healing will last all the way through the 2020’s and into the 2030’s when there will be a governmental path and beginning mind-set opposing the shutdown of Alternative Healing websites. In the US, the struggle between Pharmaceutical Companies and Alternative practitioners/organizations will last for decades, and on towards the end of this century. But, both will remain available in some form.

I’m psychically seeing the Pharmaceutical Corporations also working to counter any drug price controls, because the US has always been a profit making location. Of course – they are a business and they seek to make a profit. It is in the US (and Europe) that they make most of this profit. Pharmaceutical Companies’ stocks will be in demand, driving up the value. Now is the time to invest in Pharmaceutical stocks. Business is business, and unfortunately, on the whole, this particular situation will contribute to difficulty in developing a more affordable health care system in the US.

*******

NATURAL DISASTERS

I do want to mention that I don’t see every natural disasters which happens. Some of them even surprise me because I see what I seek to see, for the most part. And many times, no one asks about an event and so I don’t look for an/the event.

In the US, on the East Coast and in the Gulf of Mexico – 2021 will have a smaller hurricane number than the 2020 season, but the image I see is one of “pressing down a metal spring, preparing for the moment that the spring is released.” 2021 is the pressing down of the spring – this means that the 2021 hurricane season will have fewer hurricanes and tropical storms, than 2020. Do not let this fewer number of hurricanes lull anyone into thinking things are easing off with regards to destructive weather. I say this, because the energy that is manifesting into this 6 year time period has much more yet to come forth. This means that I’m seeing that the hurricanes in 2022, 2023, and 2024, over time, will be increasingly EXCEPTIONALLY DESTRUCTIVE and focusing in the southeastern states of the US, but also reaching into the mid-central eastern states.

HURRICANES

We have time to energetically work on this through our prayers and meditations before they manifest. I say this, because when Hurricane Rita hit New Orleans and created a massive disaster, there came forth a massive prayer effort – millions of people (much of it came from Utah) directed towards the Gulf Coast. This brought forth the Christ energy in such a great level that the 2006 and ½ of the 2007 hurricane season was healed/dissolved. In other words, the energy that was to manifest at that time as hurricanes, was healed/rebalanced/redeemed, and no longer manifested. I had previously seen (in a 2002 reading – yes, accurately) a hurricane hitting my own family home in 2006, and it never came. It was only afterwards when I was reexamining the information to find out what happened for me to “be wrong”, that I saw the massive prayer effort heal the hurricane seasons. Massive prayer efforts heal massive destructiveness.

Currently, in the 2021 hurricane season, I see up to 7 named storms in the summer months with 5 impacting storms in the Southeast US. (More might happen, but this is what I see, right now.) One of them will be a large hurricane. 2 tropical storms, possibly 3, and 1-2 being less than a tropical storm. The other storms that happen will be small enough to possibly not be named. June will have a few small storms, staying small. One going into Mexico, and others going into Mississippi and the Florida panhandle. July, I see one large going into the Gulf, inland in the Alabama/Mississippi area, then heading up into the eastern states. August, small storms, September, a medium size, possible tropical storm, possibly up to 3 of these total. October, I see a storm to be concerned about – 3rd week of October. Then November, diminishing the chances of one. During the hurricane season, I do see 1 storm enter into mid-Florida from the East , cutting across Florida – a tropical storm growing into a category 1. This will be possibly in August. I’m seeing that if there are more on the East coast, they will stay further out in the Atlantic.

While I’m seeing these in detail, it is a year away and time changes things. Never hesitate to get updates via requesting them online, especially about natural disasters.

The Pacific Ocean – Typhoons: In looking at May to October,…

I’m seeing 1 large storm travel across the southern Philippines. It will be stronger than a small storm going across the mid to northern part of the Philippines. I’m seeing the 2nd, smaller one, following the larger southern one by about 3-4 weeks.

I’m seeing 5-6 storms hitting East China in 2021, with each being close to each other in strength. The time frame seems to be mid-May to mid-August. I do see a possible 2 more in November, 2021. I’m seeing the stronger ones be in the southern half of the eastern coast of China.

In 2021, I see Hawaii facing 3 major storms worthy of mentioning. The strongest of the 3 will be first. All of them will be serious, but not record-breaking.

*******

EARTHQUAKES

In 2021, in the Earth as a whole, I’m seeing 2 major earthquakes, with hundreds/thousands/millions of small tremors. I’m also seeing a possible 3-4 more large ones, but they’re not as established to manifest as the 2 “destined” ones mentioned above. The 2 major earthquakes, I see happening in the central area of the northern half of South America.

In the US, in 2021 on the west coast, I’m seeing a relatively light year with regards to earthquakes. I am seeing those earthquakes being 5 or less. In Alaska, I see one in the Aleutian Islands measuring a low 3.5-4. At most it would go to 4.5, but I currently see it being 4 or less.

I do see a massive earthquake happening in Russia – southeast of central Russia. However, this could be part of the “Shock” I describe below.

The largest earthquake in China in 2021, I see being about a 5.0 and happening on or before September.

I list this under Earthquakes because of part of this:

In 2021, I’m seeing what I can only call a “Shock” of some kind. I see it happening over the western half of the Indian Ocean. My first effort to interpret what I’m seeing is possibly a meteor or asteroid grazing the Earth’s atmosphere over the Indian Ocean. In seeing this, and interpreting it this way, I am looking to see if it lands on earth, but I am seeing it NOT land on Earth, but possibly rather bouncing off the atmosphere and moving on or being destroyed. At the same time, I don’t think it is this exactly, but I’m not yet seeing what exactly it is…. unless there is a man-made “Shock” which could be a few different events. I do see it as an event which causes a “Shock”. It is the “Shock” cause that I’m not sure what I’m seeing. It could even be something happening with man-made items in orbit around the Earth – perhaps a collision of some type.

The Shock could also be a meteor which does enter the atmosphere but burns up mostly or completely which is why I’m not seeing a massive splash or landing explosion. And it could be a shock underneath the Indian Ocean, which would cause a Tsunami. It could be human related in the form of a social upheaval event. This means it could be “shocking” to humans – like an outbreak of a war. Finally, it could be an event that happens on the spirit level and could resolve at that level, also. So, at this time, I will keep looking at it to see if the event develops into something recognizable. I mention it here because I’m seeing it. My last thought is that it very much can be a calling for prayer to help it to NOT manifest, hence why it’s not showing as a physical event that I can zero in on. This is how I will take it at this time – a call for prayer for this region. I invite others to pray for this region, also, because there is something.

On the whole, 2021 will be a normal to slow year for earthquakes. I’m currently seeing 2023 being the more active year for earthquakes.

*******

HONG KONG

The people of Hong Kong are another people who desperately needs our prayers. Psychically, what I’ve been seeing is that the Chinese government intends to quietly but assuredly show no mercy to them until they fully submit, to instill nothing but full control over them, and intends to show them through violent means if need be, that they have no choices for self-government except what the Chinese government dictates to them. While showing a smiling face to Hong Kong, and the world, the agreement the Chinese government made with Britain was only intended to be fulfilled if convenient and Hong Kong came to submit to the Chinese government completely, and these agreements are now being forgotten. This I have foreseen and unless miracles occur, the next 4 years will end with the Chinese military moving into Hong Kong, and with brutality inflicted upon the people of Hong Kong. Pray for miracles. Pray for miracles. Pray for miracles.

*******

FOOD & HUNGER

With the pandemic, and the lower food supplies which came with the pandemic, we’ve already been seeing the steady rise in food prices at the stores, and the increasing numbers of people needing food from the food banks. The prices at the grocery stores won’t go down except for small, small amounts after people start coming back out from under the pandemic. In many parts of the world, people are better prepared, because some have had agrarian economies. They grow more of their own foods. In industrial nations, scarcity will be seen and felt more, because fewer individuals grow their own food. Industrial/ factory farms are more relied upon in industrial nations.

The industrial/ factory farms will not be able to meet demand, because of their own lower yields and supplies. There will NOT be food wars as some like to suggest, but we will see regular increases in the costs of food.

The steps to take are to find new and innovative ways to grow one’s own (and one’s own family’s) food. That which one can grow oneself won’t take the place of the trip to the grocery store, but it will help increase the food supply and diminish the scarcity, with home-grown food supplementing what can be obtained still from stores. Obviously, this also will help with the food budget.

The practice of growing some of one’s own food, will also prepare the next generation for food challenges with the continuing growth of population, the greater demand for food due to a growth in population, the worsening climate preventing full-scale farming/harvesting to serve the growing population who is having the greater demand for food, and the higher prices that come with the growing population’s greater demand for food and the worsening climate preventing the past full-scale farming/harvesting. Do you get what I’m writing? Like the frog in the pot of “slowly heating up to boiling point” water, it’s best to know what situation is available to us if we stay in the pot. We have decisions and choices to make, because as time continues there will be a continuing increase in the population and a greater demand for food, and the climate will work against growing more food, thus driving up the prices.

*******

BREXIT

I’m so sorry for what I have to present here. I’m even more sorry for the British people. While an end can be said to be assigned, there will never be a 100% comprehensive agreement, because I see there to be loopholes, and parts that will be left unresolved. The Brexit agreement is going to be a hodgepodge of agreements. I’m seeing that it will take lawyers several years to complete the unsigned parts left still to be done, and more years to understand it.

I am seeing the agreement being the source of causing more problems and confusion over the years to work within it, than it has been to create it. This is not my opinion. These are the problems I see psychically. Challenges to it in the courts, through the years, will only serve barristers/lawyers as having some way to earn money. Some in this profession will focus their whole career on Brexit lawsuits and court challenges. It will be steady work. I’m sorry.

What I see will be named Brexit and will be an agreement, but as it is such, I am seeing it only add to the discouragement of the British people. It will be confusing and loaded with strings attached, making it possible to be abused, as well. In 2021, technically there will be deadlines and continued work but as is said, “The devil is in the details.” and this will be realistic in this case. I’m not seeing any signs at all that there could be good news with it, except one day the elected officials will celebrate telling the people that they’ve got it done (mostly, except not.) I’m so sorry to the British people. In the 2030’s, Brexit will be seen generally by most people as one of the worst decisions ever made, because it will not serve in the way that it has been meant to, and will eventually be thought of as a waste of time.

HOWEVER, FOR RIGHT NOW, AND IN THE YEAR, 2021, IT WILL BE APPLAUDED AS AN ACCOMPLISHMENT AND SUCCESSFUL. SO, SINCERE CONGRATULATIONS FOR THE HARD WORK AND THESE WORTHY MOMENTS OF GOOD FEELINGS BROUGHT ABOUT BY THE HOPE, TRULY PERSISTENT EFFORT, AND SEEING IT THROUGH TO THOSE STEPS WHICH HAVE BEEN ACCOMPLISHED.

THE STATE OF GEORGIA’S JANUARY 5, 2021 RUNOFF ELECTION

I see both Senate seats going to the Republicans. One will be a clear winner, but one will be barely a winner.

Added 1/6/2021: I missed this one, (which again possibly shows that the future can change, and that our own interpretation of what we psychically see, can be off – based on our own paradigm,) but I am now predicting the Republicans winning back one of the two houses of Congress in 2022. I’m basing this on my having seen and still seeing a much stronger wall of opposition from Republicans in 2023 and 2024.

*******

OBAMACARE

In the US, I see the ever present desire to end the Affordable Care Act through the courts into the springtime – March, 2021 and one court case in the summer. After that there will be fewer court challenges as the years move on. I see no improvements passing the Senate, because there will be the 4-year directive in the Republican Senate to not cooperate or make any deals with the Biden Administration. There will be a minimum of legislation being passed in the Senate.

IMMIGRATION AROUND THE US

While the emigrating of people within and around the US will be slow in 2021 because of the Pandemic, it will increase in 2022-2025 because of the problems within the economy. People are looking for a better life situation. There will be some of this same thing happening in Europe and China. In smaller amounts, this will happen in nations around the world.

QUESTIONS

Do you see a conclusion to mask wearing this coming year? I’ll always wear it when necessary because it’s about helping others… but I’m also over the masks. M.L.

Most certainly we all can relate to the weariness of Covid-19 and wearing masks. For a practical solution, try wearing bandanas or any of the other alternative “mask-like” clothes. You’re right, we are doing this to help others, including…. when we wear our masks, it helps show support to all the others wearing their masks. It can shore up others who are weary. It can be a sign of solidarity as well, that we are supporting each other, when we are all wearing a mask. We can gain that feeling of solidarity when we go out and see many others wearing their masks, too. Finally, it is always important to remember that of the people that go into the ICU – the serious patients – some leave ICU when they get well, but others leave ICU when they don’t. As for if we will be able to stop wearing masks in 2021 …. yes, sort of, but keep it with you, because Covid will be around for a while, yet.

Covid numbers are spiking in Ohio. Do you see DeWine doing another shutdown? What about schools… as a teacher, I’m very concerned as those numbers are starting to creep up too with students. Thank you, in advance, for relaying information to us! M.L.

You are correct to be alert to this problem. Common sense tells us that what we are seeing is that of which we can expect more. Ohio is no exception. So, I continue to support prayer, masks, cleaning, and all CDC recommendations. Prayer without practical steps will not save people. Prayer with practical steps will save more. In this case, I rely on the old saying that has been overused to the point of it being ignored – God helps those who help themselves. Unfortunately, this is being ignored. But, individually, it is more wise to heed it.

As of this writing, (the end of 2020), the vaccines will be dispersed, but it will take time. I’m still seeing numbers who contract the virus still growing, but leveling off in January and February, but not coming down until April and May when many will want a full opening of society even though doing it at this time would cause numbers to increase again. In June, I see a slow opening of society being safe.

1. Will the grand convergence of Saturn and Jupiter affect Joe Biden and his administration? C.C.

I asked my friend, Stephanie Austin of Ecoastrology.com to answer these two questions.

1. Yes, the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn will affect the Biden administration, as it signals the beginning of a new 20 year cycle, a new 200 year cycle, and is also a harbinger of the Age of Aquarius. Jupiter-Saturn cycles mark significant shifts in social, political, and economic policy. Their previous conjunction occurred on May 28, 2000 (at 23º Taurus), a period which saw the burst of the dot-com bubble and the beginning of the real estate bubble. Their last conjunction in Aquarius was on January 16, 1405 at 24º, coinciding with the ending of the Middle Ages and the beginning of the Early Renaissance. 

2. Will the grand convergence have an affect on Joe Biden and his administration the next 4 years? C.C.

2. This Great Conjunction will continue to have an effect during the next four years and beyond, as it signals the beginning of a more egalitarian and humanitarian era. Jupiter and Saturn conjoin in one element for approximately 200 years, called the Great Mutation. While the Great Conjunctions were in earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn), the collective emphasis was on what could be made, used, and possessed, accelerated by the Industrial Revolution and the discovery of electricity. During the last 200 years mechanization, urbanization, and materialism have drastically changed how we relate to the Earth and the material plane. The Great Conjunctions moving into Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) signify an archetypal turn from material to social development, from the control of land and resources to the regulation of information and connection, leading to a greater valuing of creativity and innovation, new networks and alliances, increased shared goods and social reform.

Aquarius’ spiritual task is the development of group consciousness, where we evolve beyond identification with family, religion, race, and country to being a member of the human race. It is the sign of equality and diversity, innovation and reform, collaboration and community. The Age of Aquarius is the age of liberty, equality, and freedom for all, the age of unity in diversity. Unity does not mean uniformity; it is the synergy generated from the expression of each unique individual. The eleventh sign instructs us to be inclusive and inventive. How well we tolerate individual freedom and social justice depends on how well we have mastered the lessons of the previous sign, Capricorn. If we have not developed a healthy sense of sovereignty and responsibility, we fall into the shadow side of Aquarius, which can lead to blind conformity, dehumanization, and technocracy. 

There has not been a Jupiter-Saturn conjunction on a winter solstice in the last 5,000 years. This solstice conjunction marks a major turning point in humanity’s evolutionary journey. How skillfully and fully we are able to release the old determines how well we are able to envision and embody the new. The less baggage, resentment, and fear we have, the quicker we can move forward. The more we remember the big picture, that life is about cycles, about learning, about living from the heart, the easier it is to see what’s true, do what’s most meaningful, and hold the light in these challenging transitional times.

Stephanie Austin writes an in-depth astrology update just before each new and full moon, covering the current astrological shifts and including resources to help you work with the energies. Subscriptions are available on a sliding scale. The above is an excerpt from her December 14, 2020 Sagittarius Solar Eclipse update. A full sample, and how to subscribe, is available on her website at this link: https://www.ecoastrology.com/forecast.html

Jodie’s contribution: with both these questions, I see the energy of the planets, galaxy, and universe as a wave washing over the Earth and all life within the realm. I see it as a wave, with the peak of the wave being during this time and like a wave, able to carry whichever life is willing to ride the wave. Once the wave washes through, the experience stays, but the energy can be influential or can be rejected. The experience cannot be erased. We cannot return to what once was.

What are the limits to the questions i can ask and how to you obtain the information? Is it through images? Through complete conversations you hear? Emotions and feelings or a mixture of all of the above and then some? V

When I’m reading anything psychically, I won’t place any limits on what anyone can ask. There are some limitations on what I can connect to – there is a requirement of respect towards other’s lives and the information of their life. This respect includes not sharing that which is private for them. Yet, there is public information about all life.

Otherwise, I obtain information much like a librarian obtains a book requested. When asked, I seek it out. I am able to identify the vibrations of thoughts and feelings of the past and present, and “written” in the Akashic Records, as well as see down the road to the potential futures. I “tune-in” to the vibrations of the person asking, the question asked, and that which I understand to be the answer in the Akashic Records, to the question, then translate these vibrations into images, feelings and thoughts. I don’t “hear” voices when I do readings.

For me, it’s more like reading a book of vibrations, images, thoughts and feelings. And it’s even more than what I describe. For me to reach up to connect with the vibrations of the Akashic Records, I must “reach up” – like reaching up to grab an electrical powerline and holding on. Finally, I do have help in raising up to that vibration level, and I do have help in identifying certain vibrations. I’ve been giving readings for 36 years now, and I’m still learning more on how to get better.

How is the housing market going to be in the United States? Things are still hot. Are foreclosure and evictions going to be serious issues in 2021? Mass homelessness? V

The housing market will be good for buyers, because the interest rates for mortgages will continue to be low with a potential small increase in the interest rate in the spring, 2021, but that interest rate increase will be reversed soon after. The interest rates will be in the lower range for almost the whole year. At the end of the year, we can see a small increase. The potential for a wave of foreclosures will come, because the owners of rental houses will be suffering, and many will not be able to pay the mortgages. The potential for evictions will be upon us, as well. After Jan 20th, I see some action to prevent more evictions as part of dealing with Covid 19 and for relief reasons. It will be difficult for the new administration to keep all foreclosures and evictions from happening, but much of this will be avoided. As for mass homelessness, much effort will come forth to keep this from happening. But, there will be some, just not at the “mass” scale.

Will Trump leave office without starting a war first? Is he going to try and incite his followers to encourage a civil war after he leaves or will things calm down once he is out of office? CC

For your 1st question: A military war – No, but his war on the election system will continue to January 20, 2021. His verbal war will continue afterwards.

2nd question: Again, I don’t see a military civil war in the US, but there are factions in the US who will carry out pockets of violence. I see mostly the violence coming from white supremacist groups and mostly in the Eastern states. The potential exists in Nevada, and I’m not seeing it manifest in Montana unless it’s from 1 or 2 people only. Prayers will help minimize the harm they seek to inflict.

3rd question: As for calming down after he is out of office – not at first. His need for the services of lawyers will become news stories in Feb-March. This kind of news will drag on for a while.

He does mean to run again in 2024, and will have many speaking engagements for the next 3 years (2021-2023) in order to prepare for that run. But, around the end of 2023 to the beginning of 2024, he will step back from running again.

2020 brought us COVID-19 and all of its challenges. What major challenges do you see 2021 bringing to the world, before or after the vaccine will have been introduced?

With the US, the major challenge will be facing the triple threat of the political divide continuing in big ways in the country during the pandemic and with major climate change issues to deal with, in our faces. All three are related and all three are connected. That’s about as major as we can get. This will create a slow economy, for quite some time.

Or, what major challenge(s) do you see humanity facing that isn’t COVID related?

The closed mind and the closed heart – and the belief that this is unimportant. These are far worse and bring greater suffering than any physical disaster ever could. Sadly, we will see this happen often.

What major geopolitical events do you see occurring?

I wish I could say that all we’ll have to deal with is the zombie apocalypse. That would be easy.

I have been speaking about this time period for several years – the dark times – these six years: 2021-2026 – the times of behaviors far away from the Light and Love – the times of hatred of the truth and more hate for those that bring it. We will see too many behaviors of such as this. Hence, why it is a time also, for praying, for meditating, for holding to that which speaks to us from deep within our own hearts – where real and true love, compassion, and kindness resides. It is a time to remember ourselves as caring people, with hearts and souls, who wish to help make all human beings and all lives better, not our own only.

Remember, each geopolitical event is major to the people to whom it happens. For the whole world, the continued prejudice towards the “other” is a geopolitical event, because it will happen in the political arenas. Hong Kong’s fate is a singular major event, and will grow worse as years progress. In the US, the ongoing political war in Washington DC, is another, because nothing like it will have ever been seen before, – where the welfare of the people will not be the focus – where misinformation will be so vast that few will ever be able to identify the facts and the truth – where suffering the attacks from others will be the norm. All of this will grow worse as the years of this time period progress. The positive news will be in local governments where “neighbors” are the ones elected, and they then know the people served.

Will the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan be resolved?

Unfortunately, these two nations and their conflict will continue like they are now in some form, for many years. The inner will to seek out peace is just not in the majority of people or leaders. Those in power feel that it serves them more to be in conflict. In 2021, we will see little progress for peaceful coexistence. The conflict will not increase much beyond what it currently is, yet, we will see a slow and small increase of conflict towards the 2025-2026, when neighboring countries will then add more pressure to work something out. Even then, working something out will barely be the will of a significant enough number of people, but not everyone. However, one ray of hope is in 2024, when a surge of effort could be brought forth to draw up an agreement for mutual self-restraint.

What are the ramifications of Israel having normalized relations with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in 2021?

This lays the foundation for the 2020’s and 2030’s to be when the roots of peace go deeper in the region. As time continues, other nations will join in, with eventually the great majority of nations developing some plan for normalized relations. It could take another 20 years for all, but it has started.

What positive events do you see occurring in 2021? DM.

Besides the Covid-19 vaccines, I see optimism within people that will buoy spirits and generate efforts to rebuild what has been lost. Slowly people will emerge from the cloud of frustration and discouragement. Slowly. While the economy will be slow to recuperate, people will see progress and will keep trying. The positive events will happen. They will be small events rather than large. They will help spur hope, and they will persist. As for specific events, as time moves on, more and more people will change their minds and get the vaccines… up to a point.

***

Do you see progress being made in the US toward a greener economy?

This is the hope and plan, but it will be fought against and so will come slowly.

What types of jobs do well and which ones won’t do well.

In general, we will see more skilled labor jobs increase. There really aren’t jobs that won’t do well in 2021. The factor influencing it is the question about when will a particular industry reopen after the pandemic. This means that the hiring process will increase in almost all industries and markets. This will happen slowly, because so many companies won’t have the money to hire right away.

Do you see any positive changes in the news media or still people being funneled according to which channels they watch?

The real factor that affects this is not what news media offers. The factor that affects this is the freewill within each individual to choose what each individual wants to see and wants to hear. This is what drives the choices available. Each of us, as individuals, chooses our own perspectives, beliefs, thoughts and feelings. We then choose those media outlets that convey the perspective et.al. which we have, and therefore want to see and hear so as to reinforce our own perspective. It is the people’s views that shape the media, not the media that shape people’s views. I know this is hard to see, but it is the way this works. We are drawn to those who are like us. If no one wants to see some media outlet, or hear what someone has to say, that outlet dries up and gets canceled. The axiom, “Don’t kill the messenger”, shows that the person who receives the message has the will to decide what happens to the one giving the message. In essence, the receiver of news has the power of what happens to the show/news provider.”

Any major hurricanes as well? Maybe you could do a break down for each part of the country like you did in previous predictions.

I’ve covered this above.

Will advancements be made in race relations when there is a change in presidency? M.C.

This aspect of human life will be slow to change also, through many decades, because it’s not a matter of just producing legislation, and it’s not possible to legislate the human heart or human thought.

***

* How soon do you see high speed internet coming to rural areas as a basic federal right? C.B.

Internet service speeds will continue to be determined and provided by commercial sources and at the rate which the markets decide – for decades to come. I don’t see any Federal involvement or mandate with deciding that high speed service be nationally established by legislation. Since we are a commerce driven nation, for the most part, the commercial markets make most decisions like this. The nearest thing to this, is a govt. program to help support Internet service, to all markets, but not mandate it. I see small govt. programs like this in small spots, but a larger program coming in about 3-4 decades.

* Will colleges and K-12 schools continue to offer remote learning (initiated because of the pandemic) in combination with in-person classes well beyond vaccine rollout, i.e., “hybrid” choice courses as a way of life going forward, or will being mandatory in-person return as the expected education platform for all? C.B.

I don’t see an edict that will be handed down to “All”. There will be few “mandatory” policies as the pandemic winds down and rather there will be a little more flexibility examined by school boards and authorities to see if they can offer any extra opportunities. As safe environments are determined to be available, K-12 will return to offering in-person courses, as they are taught on school grounds previous to the pandemic. This provides the much needed normal socialization opportunities for growing children. Since online courses have been helpful, some small numbers of Internet based courses will be offered to some high school juniors/seniors (mostly) because they will be college prep courses, some even being offered by colleges.

Remote learning by colleges will have been found to provide some benefits and conveniences, and so this will continue to be offered as will a return to classrooms – a move for normalization of college life.

* Framed another way: When or do you see major schools and universities expecting teachers/staff/students to return fully to in-person learning? Fall 2021? Winter 2022? Fall 2022?

Some colleges and universities will begin in the Summer of 2021 since the vaccines will show results by then. Not all will be ready to return, since funds to do this will be scarce for some colleges and universities, and so the return to normal college “business” will be step by step. They will do the best they can with the resources they have. It will take to January, 2022 for the last of the colleges and universities to return to “normal” (again, taking it step by step).

* Is it a US decision or state by state? How can we plan for ourselves if we want to stay remote? C.B.

It will be organization by organization for colleges and universities. It is state by state working alongside school districts for K-12.

It is possible to stay remote, but there are real benefits to teaching and attending classes in person. These benefits are not available to remote courses. The benefits come from the human contact which influences all learning. Remote courses offer information and structure, but cannot offer in-person human contact, which is a real thing – necessary to all humans. Hence why there is a return to in-person schooling for K-12.

* Do you see Covid vaccines becoming mandatory every year or twice a year going forward many years into the future to attend schools, employment in the general sector?

For adults, I see vaccines being a choice and not mandatory, for years to come. And never mandatory for adults to attend schools, or get employment in the general sector. I also see Covid-19 being part of society for a few more years, because there will be so many who choose no vaccine. I see the vaccine for children being considered possibly mandatory right now whether to make it part of their vaccine programs for school. If chosen, it would be for several years. I am not seeing it be made mandatory.

* Or does this fade away at some point years from now and not a requirement for most work? C.B.

Covid won’t be fading away. Like all other viruses, this one too will make sporadic returns. Even though we don’t hear about it, even HIV is still something that people can spread. People will still be asymptomatic carriers of Covid for several years yet. I’m seeing possible small events of mutations which the vaccines will not be 100% effective against. But, I’m seeing this affecting small groups in the future, and because of our experiences with this now, future outbreaks will be handled with greater effort, precision and success. As research continues, I also see vaccines being more effective.

* Do you see more affordable automated products coming to market en masse that allow people to grow some basic food indoors in their kitchens as a pandemic way of life? Not just a couple herbs but real food, easy to grow, looks like part of the standard attractive house setup? C.B.
The decisions to grow food and how to do this, will always be determined by each household, but I do see more effort in 2021 and beyond, by people to find ways to grow more food – whether indoors or outdoors. Many will use innovative methods and products, some on the market now, and some yet to be developed.

As the climate crisis continues, today’s mass-produced food growing methods and their products will fall behind the food demand, and hence, prices will go up. It will always be good for people to grow their own food, and as innovations in doing this occur, they will be shared on the Internet, where there already are many innovations in growing food – innovations from around the entire globe available to the entire globe.

Added 1/6/2021: In addition, locally grown vegetables have a different overall chemistry and energy – native to the area – which contributes to a healthier and more readily assimilated food. This is not a widely known factor, and so for years and years, people have shipped food to other areas of the globe, not realizing that it’s not just the physical characteristics that are important for healthier food, but also the energy and vibration of the food which is important, as well. In addition, the chemistry of locally grown food is different that that food shipped long ways, based on soil, rain, air, irrigated water, fertilizers, wildlife and livestock in the area, and many other less known factors – which go to make up the whole of the vegetables. As it is said, we are what we eat – this is true for plants, too. Therefore, growing one’s own food is a worthwhile endeavor – and worthwhile even if one lives in the urban areas.

* Do you see a trend in local governments in the burbs insulating themselves from future pandemics and potential rationed food supplies with their own mini farms for their big cities/local grocers? C.B.

On the large scale and on a small scale, in general, I’m not seeing any insulation like this going on – separation from any other group (rather the opposite). It is in our DNA – we have been designed – to need one another. People need people.

With experience with disasters, comes ideas for preparation for future events. Also with experience comes the recognition that the more people there are who are connected, the stronger and more stable is the support system. So, insulated groups would usually have less resources and develop less supplies, and therefore not be as strong and stable for providing resources, as those where there are networks/systems who can share over greater numbers of people. People as a whole are resilient and put forth effort in continuing to live their lives as best they can. We have experience and knowledge already as a part of us, which shows us that as we stay connected to each other – as we support our societies and communities, we are able to weather the storms that come along. I’m seeing the spirit within people to survive and thrive being made stronger as more people unite with each other.

* How can families, extended families, friends, acquaintances heal and trust each other again if they’ve had completely opposite views and lifestyles or common sense of keeping others safe during the pandemic? C.B.
First, this is not a question of logic. This is a question of the heart – caring for people – caring for others. Throughout our entire lives, we have been and will be faced with these questions and situations. We will ask ourselves these questions about others, and others will ask these questions about us. Do they have our best interest at heart? Do we have their best interest at heart? Do they make room for us to have differing opinions and beliefs? Do we make room for them to have differing opinions and beliefs? These questions have been asked before pandemics, and will be asked after pandemics are only memories, because there are millions of ways for each of us to act safe or unsafe in life.

Ultimately, it isn’t an issue of whether we have the same or opposite views, but what our views motivate us to do. It isn’t an issue of whether we have different or the same lifestyles, but whether we allow there to be room in the world for each of us to have lifestyles of our own choosing. Giving each other the room to have our own views and lifestyles, is an expression of respect. Giving respect is an expression of consideration of other’s life and choices. Giving consideration of their life, and their choices is an expression of kindness and tolerance of them. Giving kindness is an expression of love. And we love people who’s behaviors sometimes trigger pain for us, in our hearts. And others love us, even when our own behaviors sometimes trigger pain in their hearts. This is the human challenge of loving.

Because there are 8 billion people on the planet, there are 8 billion sets of beliefs, views, opinions, and 8 billion different lifestyles. No two people can ever be the same person, so no two people can ever be the exactly the same within our minds and hearts.

If we so choose it – yes, we can rely on logic to determine who we love, but I don’t recommend logic being the source. What is better is if we can rely on our hearts to determine this, and this is what I recommend. Your question is about loving others who choose differently, act differently, are motivated differently, and let their heart feel differently. There is no way around facing this experience for any human being. We face this challenge every moment of our lives, even if we’re not aware of facing it.

If you are asking for a little logic, when it comes to trusting someone, there are 8 billion people who are human beings, who have both good and bad within them (us). This means there are 8 billion human beings who make mistakes sometimes (but not always), have accidents sometimes (but not always), make poor decisions sometimes (but not always), and lose track of our common sense sometimes (but not always). This means that all people are both trustworthy sometimes and not trustworthy sometimes – this includes ourselves. We CAN learn to trust people when they’re being trustworthy, and we CAN learn to NOT trust them when they’re not being trustworthy, but we must learn when to trust ourselves to strengthen an honest ability to accurately assess this, so that we can learn to tell the difference between when someone is being trustworthy and when someone is being untrustworthy.

Remember, everyone wants to be loved. Everyone is given opportunities to love. Neither of these two is easy, but they’re still both worth our effort, and you know this. And, they come hand-in-hand, together – two sides of one coin.

If it helps any, it is a worthy prayer to pray, “Lord, help me to love and to recognize and accept the love other’s have for me.”

When we have reached this point, then we can decide how to respond in a pandemic. With one possible response being that we express our caring by giving others the respect for their choices, and give ourselves the respect for our own choices, while at the same time, showing we love/care for them in other ways available, and showing them that we also love/care about our own health in ways available to ourselves.

…and as you know, sometimes, there is pain with the love. The term is called “long-suffering”. It is what we feel when we love someone who acts contrary to what’s best for them or best for all.


* I get they might “believe” something different and not a true intent to harm, had they known a virus was “actually” present, and some choose based on financial reasons rather than safety, and both choices to either isolate or mingle about life as usual during these covid days can cause harm to someone somewhere and which one is worse or better when you take into account mental and spiritual health as well, but it’s been hard to realize that the only one really looking out for “you” is “you.” C.B.

This is true, it is hard to be understanding, compassionate, or tolerant when we think“that the only one really looking out for “you” is “you”. It’s hard to be patient or forgiving to others when we think the only one looking out for us is our self. It’s hard to think kindly of others or feel any bond with another, when we believe they have no caring or concern for our health and well-being.

But, no human being is a black and white cardboard cut-out. And no human being is an empty shell. And no human being is a lifeless machine. And no human being exists who is without feelings and beliefs, and hopes and dreams, and aspirations and motivations. And no human exists who has never made a bad choice, or never made a mistake, or never learned something about life the hard way, or never done something which we truly regret.

And so, individually, we choose for our self, how we’re going to be in the world – how we will relate to others, how much we will care for others, and how we will respond to a pandemic. We can’t do anything about other’s choices except express our opinions, our understanding, our forgiveness, or our tolerance of them, but we can do something about our own choices in life … and so we do.

As for making medical decisions based on financial reasons rather than health reasons, this is not new to many people. You’re referring to what the elderly and many others are forced to do when their medications are too expensive to take the correct dosage. They instead opt to do medically unhealthy actions, because they don’t have the finances to pay for their medical needs. The actions by themselves, of anyone, are not the problem. The problem is the spirit/feelings/thoughts – the heart of the person – motivating the action.


* Looking back at old family gatherings, it’s been a given someone usually arrived with a cold or just getting over a flu they picked up at school, or maybe JUST got vaccinated for something contagious before they arrived to your gathering, and you just dealt with, gosh, darn it, now I’ve got a cold or don’t feel well, just great … but going forward now, knowing Covid is out there, questionable immunity down the road, how do you get beyond looking at others like they are … well, sometimes I want to say “pretending” they care about you but are just looking for a good time at someone else’s expense, or realizing they don’t care, or … I don’t know… ending up isolated the rest of your life as the world goes on without you and takes their chances. C.B.

It is something we all ask ourselves, because being human means we are a blend of things we’ve learned and things still unlearned about life. But, as mentioned, no one is only a black and white caricature. What appears to be not caring hides much, much more of our self deeper within that no one sees. What appears to be willingness to have a good time at someone else’s expense, hides much, much more of our self deeper within that no one sees. It will always be our own individual choice as what to do with that which we hold deeper within, which no one sees. Sometimes, we don’t do well at all with this part of us or this task. And it is the fact that we know that no one may ever see this that lies deeper within us, that really isolates us, leading us to feel more alone than any other person, and for this reason, we may act in unhealthy ways to find a way to reach out to have contact with others…. if unhealthy ways are the only ways we think we have.


* How does one enjoy family gatherings again after knowing how each has responded to the pandemic in safe or knowingly unsafe and risky ways? C.B.

By knowing our self as best we can and knowing what it is that we enjoy. Then knowing also what it is that we don’t enjoy. And letting go of taking God’s place in weighing other’s choices and actions.

Then find ways, where we can take whatever steps we can, and still let others decide for themselves. It is not letting our efforts be based on others’ behaviors, but rather on our own desires – to attend or not. In all these times, there is a weighing of – are we choosing based on them, or on ourselves, or both. There are situations where we don’t want to do something because of them, but we do want to do it because of our self. Then we can do “that action” for our self, if we want to, instead of not doing “that action,” because of their choices. It is in these times, we are then making the choice for our self. I hope this is understood.

* How do you enjoy being around other people again without thinking they are a disease or completely irresponsible, or if they show up with some form of cold or symptoms even long down the road after we’re all supposed to be getting back to some kind of normal? That last question seems unanswerable. How do you enjoy … knowing? Or do you just choose to not? How can you appreciate family gatherings again, knowing some people likely really don’t care what they expose you to?

Billions of people around the world are asking these same questions. For some of us, it is an exercise in letting go of our own reaction to be a judge of them, and instead let them choose for themselves – like we do. Then instead, working to respect our own feelings and thoughts (choosing for ourselves) about whichever steps to take for our self. And knowing one day in the future that we will be able to spend time even with those that we still care about or love, who don’t seem to be returning the favor to us, at this time. And with patience, one day in the future, we can be glad that we get to see them again when we do, for the simple reason that we’ve always been glad that we get to see them, when we do, because we’ve always loved them.

* And I’m not ruling out being vaccinated myself just to get through this pandemic response, though I’d prefer to not have one, but I don’t see myself doing it every year or twice a year for the rest of my life. C.B.

I’m not seeing a vaccine be a “rest of our lives” step to take. I am seeing the medicines and vaccines gain in effectiveness as time goes on, and in turn, be needed less and less for any one particular virus.

FINAL WORDS

If whatever we believe, think and feel, helps us to love God above all else, and love our neighbor as our self, then we can hold on to what we believe, think and feel. If what we hold onto gives us joy, helps us feel we’re no longer alone, or gives us peace of mind, helps to heal a relationship or two, or gives us avenues to experience giving and receiving of kindness, compassion, patience with our self and others, and mercy for those desperate for mercy, then we can hold onto our beliefs that give us this. If what we hold onto gives us a connection to caring people, a connection to healing the pain within our own soul and maybe someone else’s, gives us hope in an Infinitely Aware Spirit of Love who know us from the inside out of ourselves, and Loves us more than we love ourselves, or gives us a sense or feeling of recognition of the Spirit that lives within the heart of every single life form, then we can hold onto these beliefs, and hold onto them with all we’ve got.

Of course, if what any one of us believes doesn’t give us these, and instead leads one to resentment, bitterness, insults, targeting any group or person, stereotyping people, blaming others, seeing evil intent behind every action, leads us to be afraid of looking in the mirror from beliefs even about one’s own self, then why not change your mind. Something better, also exists and is available to us. We can pick better beliefs. We can open our mind and ask God to fill it with better beliefs.

Look for “the good” – which may take effort. If it exists in you (and/or me), both good and bad, then it exists in all human beings, because all human beings … are human beings. There are beliefs which offer us better perspectives on the world and the people in the world, for something that does lift us up. We may have seen and experienced the worst of nightmares acted out by humans, but that alone is not what exists. I say this, because I’ve seen both, and know that “Seek and we shall find” includes finding some good in people with whom we only saw the bad – and this includes our self.

God bless us, Everyone.

A Christmas Message

We may study all kinds of esoteric teachings.  We may find out about other planes of existence, of activities beyond time, of evolutions of things that are beyond our accepted paradigms.  We may discover paradoxes and ancient secrets, and all about other realities …
and we may want to shout about these things from the mountain tops to all others saying “Look what I have learned!!”

Yet, there’s one thing to remember.

If we only learn two things, – “to Love God above all else, and Love our neighbor as ourselves”, and practice these words of Christ with all effort and desire, in our heart and mind, then we can go our whole life never having learned anything else, and will have gained the most important of all things, which all the other esoteric teachings come from.   No one specific practice, belief or religion is absolutely a “must have”, but rather these two statements which are the foundation of all paths can do nothing but lead us back to having the best of relationships with each other, and the best of relationships with Our Creator, the One From Whom All Life, Light and Love Comes.

Merry Christmas, and God bless us, Everyone.

The Rosetta Stone of Consciousness

As surprising or confusing it might seem, Jesus’ words, “Love God above all else, and love your neighbor as yourself” are the key to understanding existence of EVERYTHING. It’s not readily understood at a human level, but it is the key that unlocks all the mysteries of existence within this Universe and all Universes. I say this not because I think it is true, but because the very life within these words, rings out this meaning and this awareness. The very vibrations of these words carry forth the effort and desire to unlock not just people’s hearts but their minds to know that which awaits us in our understanding.

What the human race is missing so far, is that these are not just pretty words. Rather practicing these words opens up the step by step approach to understanding and putting together the puzzle that is our self and our relationship to God and the Universe of Universes. We are putting together the puzzle of all things, and these words are the blueprint for finding the pieces, then learning how they fit together. They are not just spelling out how to live in this Earth, nor just how to live in the physical universe. But, they spell out how to discover and open the non-physical dimensions of existence.

These words are the Rosetta Stone of Consciousness and of understanding the realms of existence/consciousness. These words are the primer to help us unlock piece by piece – awareness of all creation – helping us climb the stairs one step at a time to that place where we understand and integrate, and live from this awareness.

With each step on the stairs of understanding, as we practice these words and all teachings that emanate from these words, we gain another piece of the puzzle. That which we learn and practice becomes part of us – part of our flesh and blood in the physical world, and the spiritual world.

This is true, because we exist in both worlds at the same time, whether we are aware of it or not. (Side note: We are spirit beings, for all times, whether we are aware of it or not. We are physical beings only while we inhabit (and are fused to) this body.)

Meditate on His words.
