Why South America’s Deforestation of the Amazon Rain Forest Causes Destruction in the US.

High School science teaches us why deserts are cold at night – due to the high heat dissipating/rising quickly into the atmosphere at the end of the day – causing wide swings in high and low temperature from day to night.  It also can teach us the opposite – that forests hold the heat in at night – acting as a regulator of the heat buildup of the day – preventing wide swings in highs and lows.

So, when South America deforests the Amazon rain forest in millions of acres, it’s easy to understand how no longer having trees over millions and millions of acres causes much greater heat dissipating/rising into the atmosphere. Then it can be understood that when this massive amount of heat from millions of acres of bare land moves over the Atlantic from the winds in the atmosphere, (here it comes) that the Atlantic waters off the northeastern and eastern coast of South America heat up, as well.

And, when the Atlantic Ocean’s waters heat up, this means there are more hurricanes and tropical storms. And, because of the increase in heat in the atmosphere from South America added to the normal heat buildup of summer and fall, the high temperature builds even more in the Atlantic creating, not just more, but bigger storms.

Hurricane Florence 2018

With the high pressure systems already over the US during summer and early fall, from the very real Climate Change, the high pressure systems more now push the hurricanes up the east coast instead into the Gulf of Mexico, instead of which happened during the 20th century. This pattern will continue to happen in the decades ahead because there will be little change to the circumstances contributing to this pattern.

I see even more destructive hurricanes over the next 7 years and some even worse than what we’ve seen so far. Watch for them beginning in 2020, then worse in 2021, then even worse in 2022 and 2023. Then lessening some in 2024, then less in 2025 and 2026.

These processes can be and are understandable to those “who have eyes to see”, meaning who still have open minds and a willingness to learn the reality that is upon us. This is one small and simplified explanation about how we’re all in this together, all over the planet. If anyone is wondering if something that happens on another continent can have a direct effect on us here in the US, ask the people living on the East Coast of the US.

It is appropriate to say, “What a small world we live in.”

Reader Questions about Earth Changes, Weather, etc.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The World as We Knew It

There is a psychological phenomenon described this way – many older people, having lived a large part of their/our life in a world where there was no climate change whatsoever, and now living in a world where this is only a little climate change – don’t believe in climate change because they won’t see it – in that they’ll pass on before they see it or have it directly touch them. It is not something for them to worry about or deal with. This phenomenon is easily visible in publicly visible elected officials, especially considering that 50% of the US Senate is 65+.  The elderly make up the greater numbers of climate deniers or the climate “I don’t care” group.

It has been observed that as people age, they tend to hold onto the world of the year span in which they were in their teens to 40’s more than enter into the current world. This contributes to “generation gaps”. In other words, the world that we used to live in, we tend to hold onto in our thoughts, feelings, and actions. Generally, the world that exists today then becomes generally ignored at a certain level in our consciousnesses by older generations. Generally, even those who say they aren’t ignoring or denying the current world, are doing it in some ways, albeit not in others, without being 100% aware they are.  (All generalizations are false, including this one.)

We cannot avoid this process within ourselves. We tend to focus on “Life as we know it” because of how we feel and think. There are many feelings of confidence that go along with “knowing all about life”. Imagine the feelings that go along with “having no clue how to live in the world of today.” And we know the past ways of living better than we know the current ways of living, thus giving us a sense of safety and security by holding onto the past worlds that we already lived in.  There’s a difference of feeling our feet on solid ground vs. on constantly changing ground (like ocean waves).

A generalization is – “as elderly acknowledge they’ll die soon, knowing they’ll never deal with climate change, have no need to worry about climate change and therefore don’t.”

However, when there is awakened within someone a concern for future generations taking precedence over one’s own life and one’s own soon death – children and grandchildren – there is an awakening for what the future generations will face.

The younger generations carries the complete and total weight of the destruction which climate change is now bringing and with increasing levels, will bring in more widespread occurrences. It is the younger generation who will be living through the destruction – of which we’ve been getting more and more a taste every year – that comes with climate change.  And this destruction is not imaginary for the younger generation, like it is for older generations, many of whom cannot imagine how bad it will be because they’ve never had it in their world.

The questions for us are, which world do we live in today?  Which world are we creating to live in, if any, tomorrow?  Which world of the past are we holding onto and why are we holding onto it?  We have answers to these questions inside us.

Regardless of how we answer these or feel about them, the world we used to live in doesn’t exist anymore except in our own memories and wishes.  We can live our life in our memories or we can join the world of today and start living our life, again, deciding what we can give to the world – for the rest of today, and tomorrow, … and the next day… and the next.  We’re not dead, today, and this means we have work to do with some of that work preparing for the climate change destruction which is increasing each day.  The last question we have related to this is – how much can we reverse…. today?  (Remember, today is the only day we can work on this.)

Winter Weather Still

For those in the northern Midwest as well as the North Eastern states, the winter weather won’t leave completely until around the 1st week in May (depending on location) to the 2nd week in May.  This kind of winter experience will be duplicated many times in the years ahead.  For example, the bad news: 5 of the next 10 years will be worse than this year, 1-2 years of the next 10 years will be similar, but for the good news – 3 to 4 of the next 10 years will be better (warmer weather).

The discrepancy (looseness of the prediction for the last 2 categories) is based on human choice.  Human consciousness affects the weather.  No amount of arguing against this will change it.  In fact, just the opposite will occur.

2018: Looking Ahead, Going Within reboot

Hello Everyone
I want to let everyone know that I’m rescheduling the “2018: Looking Forward, Going Within” retreat. I’m also trimming it to a 1-day event. This will be Sunday, Feb 11, 2018. I know this is different than the overnight event which I had hoped we could do at Camp Capers.

I have been asking within on how to move forward with this event (and even IF I should move forward.) I always get the guidance to “Yes, go with it.” But this time I felt my guidance was to go with a 1 day event – no overnight – begin and end on the same day. I know some of you who would have been driving a long distance won’t attend for this reason. I can only say that I hope you’ll feel it is worthwhile.

The itinerary will be
8am-9am: arrive and register
9am – noon: program with some freetime and breaks
noon -1:30pm: lunch and freetime
1:30 – 5pm: program with some freetime and breaks

We will have 2 30-minute meditations: 10-10:30am (joining with others around the world)
2:30-3pm – 12 Chakra guided meditation (times could be adjusted as needed)

Each presentation time will focus on presenting what I see as potential futures, steps we can take to change the futures, steps we can take to prepare for the futures, the inner work which will help us, and then deepening our understanding of the principles and processes at work in the world which we witness but don’t readily understand. Bring your questions and personal stories that you’d like to share.

The morning time frame will be 3 hours including rest, break, meditation and presentations. Lunch will be 90 minutes to give time to eat and check out the place.
The afternoon time frame will be 3 1/2 hours including rest, break, meditation and presentations.

The fees are as follows
$16 Camp Caper attendance fee
$31 tuition
$13 if you want to eat lunch at Camp Capers (optional)
Total $60 (includes lunch)

If anyone would like to attend, but would then want to stay over Sunday night at Camp Capers, arrangements can be made.

Again, if you’d like to attend and pay by credit card, you can use the “Buy Now” button below. If you’d like to attend but pay by check or cash, you may pay when you arrive.

Buy Now Button

The flexible deadline for letting me know if you’re attending (for me to turn in the number of people eating lunch at Camp Capers) is January 29, 2018.

I welcome all of you, and know that this is a change from the original event.

If it helps any, Camp Capers is a 30 minute drive from San Antonio (depending on where you are.) It is 45 minutes from Blanco, TX. About 90 minutes from Austin.

I did seek guidance and did examine why I would be supported to offer the original event, then set it up, only to have the weather affect it – causing me to postpone and reschedule. What I saw and still see is the message and information stating – This process serves to demonstrate again that the time is now when the weather will disrupt people’s lives more and more – moving people away from that which was considered normal and readily able to be handled. The weather will move people to a point requiring people to learn new ways to adapt to the weather which will continue to “worsen” (“worsen” when compared to the past.) This is one example of disrupting weather and there are more weather problems to come.

I still like the 24-hour scenario of offering 1-night overnight retreats. Yet, I don’t want to compete with the Fall Mo Ranch retreat and the “Palestine” Spring retreat. If I continue at Camp Capers, some of these may happen on Sunday/Mondays or Friday/Saturdays, or perhaps during 2 weekdays. This is because Camp Capers is very popular for weekends.

God bless you all and have a safe January.

Weather Predictions for 2017-2018 winter

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

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

***

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I’m ready for questions.

Predictions for Health Care: 2017 – 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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