“Imagine a mind as great and expansive as the Physical Universe with all it’s galaxies and planets and other stuff.  The Infinite Consciousness of God is more than what we can currently imagine.  But, don’t worry, we have eternity to expand beyond to it, and eternity is larger than the Physical Universe is wide.”  (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2017, Jodie Senkyrik)

 

Climate Change Discussion

Well, I’m still skeptical that warming would increase weather extremes but think it would enhance rainfall and lead to more flooding. My reasoning, the polar regions heat up a lot but tropical regions temps remain about the same. That reduces the temperature gradient which would reduce energy available for severe storms to form. But I don’t think CO2 is causing the warming. It’s a trace gas, only 0.04 percent of the atmosphere. Something else bigger is going on that’s warming the climate. Anyway I really enjoy your website. You probably have the best spiritual messages out of all thy psychics online. Have a happy new year.  Joel

First of all, thank you very much for your good wishes for the new year, and may you truly be blessed by God during this next year.  Also, thank you for contributing to the discussion on the blog.

Now, you did not request this, but I would like to try to mention some information which could offer some thoughts on the climate.  I offer it as an effort only to give a simplified and much condensed perspective of some of the forces influencing climate and weather.

You’re right to think there are also other deeper forces at work with regards to climate change.  By itself, CO2 build up wouldn’t cause changes if the CO2 stayed in one place.  But, what CO2 does (plus many other factors) is throw off the balance of atmospheric pressure by the CO2 molecules’ activity generated by sunlight in the atmosphere.  Greater heat (CO2 activity) creates greater pressure from greater total molecular activity, like heating the air in a hot air balloon causes the balloon to expand (expansion is an increasing of the molecular activity that happens).  The heated air molecules are vastly more active pushing against each other creating that higher pressure (more active than non-heated air molecules).

Greater pressure builds up in certain areas.  This pressure pushes on the atmosphere (up, down and sideways) creating more activity in the atmosphere.  More activity in the atmosphere causes different patterns of atmospheric behavior than has been the usual atmospheric behavior in a particular area.  More pressure creates stronger atmospheric forces pushing on the atmosphere, which cause changes in how the normal weather behaved around the planet.  To use the balloon metaphor, as the balloon expands, it pushes the outside air outwardly like ripples in a lake when a boat is set down upon the water.

This means there are more planetary high pressure zones sometimes keeping low pressure zones from moving into an area- low pressure zones being that which helps bring rain – therefore an area has more droughts and heat buildup.  This also means the higher molecular (air) activity of the high pressure atmosphere both pulls (yes, “pulls”) and pushes on the colder arctic air sending it further into previously non-arctic regions thus bringing temperatures lower further than they have been in usually hot regions.

It is the stronger of the pressure areas in the atmosphere that push and pull the most throughout the planet or put another way, the hotter of the pressure areas in the atmosphere that push and pull the most throughout the planet.  Heat is building up in the arctic regions as well as other regions and therefore pushing the changed atmosphere out of the normal patterns – like coloring outside the lines in a coloring book.

What I mentioned before in other articles is something you hit upon in your previous comment – plants – namely trees.  If humanity planted billions, billions and more billions of trees – instead of cutting down billions and billions of trees, we’d have a reversing force helping to make rebalancing happen, with a normalization happen in the atmosphere.

One of the other many factors which I alluded to at the beginning of this article and in the past is that as trees are cut down, the soil/land/dirt is exposed to the sun heating up the soil.  Soil does not hold heat like trees hold/absorb heat, and so the sun heated soil allows greater heat to escape into the atmosphere at night – that’s why deserts are cold at night.  Unfortunately, as more and more land is made desert-like by cutting down trees, more and more soil-born heat rises into the atmosphere, fewer trees utilize the CO2 and the “warming” process continues.

Again, this is by no means all the forces that are active in this process.  This is only a simplified and much condensed explanation of some of the forces happening.

“Imagine a world where no science existed.  On our planet, that world existed during ‘cave-man’ days.   Imagine a world where no religion or spirituality existed.  On our planet, that has been attempted in a few communist countries.  Now, imagine a world where both science and religion/spirituality existed, even sometimes in conflict.  This is the world we live in.

Both science and spirituality either serve humanity or harm humanity – determined by the heart of the person who chooses.”  (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2009-2017, Jodie Senkyrik)

Rendering More Discussion

“Sorry, but “render unto Ceasar” means quite the opposite. No surprises there, everyone interprets the Bible to fit their own agenda. Jesus replied “render unto Ceasar” when asked how should the Children of God respond to the taxes and oppression of the Romans. What he was really saying is that there will always be these corrupt politicians to bully the people, and it is incumbent upon Christians to love ALL as you love yourself. You must somehow allow the bullies to have their day, and continue with your Christian mission is the meaning. You must shrink from the political way, for it is evil and sinful.”  jsinton

I’ll start like this – For some, the Pentecost, as described in the Bible, helped everyone to understand what was being said in their own language.  Language can also be defined as a way of understanding and conveying concepts.  Understanding language this way, each person can understand differently.  This we all have experienced – how  people can understand differently.

When we read or learn a new concept, we learn it by adding it to our current paradigm – (paradigm being our world view or our “language” of how we understand all things.)  We can then understand what is spoken or shared as being different for each of us, because we all have different world views – or paradigms.

At the same time, we all feel differently in our hearts about different things.  These differences mean we all come from our own distinct path of growing up and learning.  We all have a very different and personally distinct and unique heart-paradigm and mind-paradigm.  Put another way, we all have learned to feel differently (sometimes only slightly differently) and think differently because no two people are alike in 100% of ways.

So, the Pentecost which happened then, is now still going on, and therefore, the teachings in the Bible speak to us in our own personal ways – our own languages.  Even if many of us agree on what something means, we’re disagreeing with some others.  And all of us are deciding based on “how the teachings touch us inside ourselves personally.”  For that reason, some people resonate to some teachers and other people resonate with other teachers.

We can’t be any other way, because we have developed our own paradigms from the moment we came into being up to now.  We have all developed our own ways of thinking and feeling from the moment we came into being up to now.  All of us are unique individuals.  With God knowing exactly the numbers of hairs on our heads, and how many hairs we lose on that head from year to year as our hair gets thinner.  And then with God, knowing exactly what each of us needs to learn in our “Next Step” of learning.  Hence, again, why we all learn differently.

“Render unto Caeser, that which is Caeser’s, but render unto God, that which is God’s.” may mean to you what you have described, but I suggest you have that paradigm based on what you feel and think about all of life and of that which you’ve faced so far.  This method/process of creating paradigms is true for all of us.

For me, this phrase speaks of our responsibility to our communities and our nation – our taking an active part in the government that is by the people , of the people and for the people.  To me, it speaks to our responsibility to contribute to paying taxes, voting, going to meetings, voicing our “2-cents” and honoring the results when they happen – even if they’re not what we want.

To me, it means give to the government that which is of the government.  In the U.S., this is individual participation to the point of running for office or contacting our representatives to give our voice.  To me, it means supporting or protesting, as we, individually, feel is needed.

The statement then goes on to mean for me, to give back to God that which is of God.  For me, again, this is to love God above all else, to love our neighbor as our self.  For me, that means giving kindness, patience, forgiveness, and mercy – all of which are of and from God.  That which is God’s, to me, are the best of the qualities that exist within us, brotherhood, unity, oneness, cooperation, charity, (and yes, even long-suffering) – all the fruits of the Spirit – which to me, means the fruits from God imbued within us, waiting for us to willingly express these fruits – even when it’s very difficult and takes great effort.

Give to the government, that which is governmental, and give to the Infinite Consciousness of Infinite Love that which is Infinite Love.

A Boost for the Soul

Look at the person in front of you.
Look at the person beside you.
Think about the person you saw yesterday,
or the family member that made you angry,
or the coworker who you get upset with,
or person on TV,
or the politician that most disgusts you.

This person needs help, in some way, with the challenges they, as souls, were born into this world to face.

Soul challenges are hard. All people need some type of assistance to help us with the struggles we came to learn how to deal with.

Each soul we see, from one day to the other, was born with challenges to face. The souls we see need help, just as much as the face of the soul we see in the mirror. We all need help, and we get it from each other. We all know how hard these challenges are in our own life. No one’s soul challenges are any easier, and don’t assume a lot of money solves any SOUL challenges. In fact, usually a lot of money creates greater and more difficult soul challenges.

A prayer, a kind word, a kind thought, a change from impatience to patience, catching ourselves from blurting out that criticism, thanking someone, another prayer – these will help souls working on the challenges during their life which they purposefully came to face.

We may never see the results of this help, but a human body takes millions of breaths each life and perhaps, if only for a small moment in their time, we can help someone catch a breathe of some fresh air during one of their breaths. Sometimes a boost from someone can help us reconnect to the best parts of ourselves.

If we doubt this, we need only consider all the people that have prayed for us, given us a kind word or kind thought, been patient with us instead of impatient, caught themselves from blurting out a criticism or judgement to us, or thanked us for something.  Were you aware this was happening?  Their numbers are more than we ever could imagine. We are where we are, because others have helped to boost us to this level – those others whom we don’t know about and without whom we would not be here.

God Bless You.

The Fear and Violence part of the 3rd Chakra

We can look at the world and see violence happening all over the place. We can also look at the world and feel the fear which is within people all over the place. And both violence and fear seemingly grow, and seemingly grow and seemingly grow.

The 3rd Chakra Connection

The spiritual consciousness 3rd Chakra is connected to the physical Adrenaline Gland. This particular Chakra part of the whole consciousness activates the Adrenaline Gland. We all know what adrenaline is. We all feel it when we’re pumped up for an athletic event or the latest roller coaster ride, or a scary movie, or a James Bond movie or an X-men movie or Deadpool Movie or a war movie or any number of all the other movies which are designed, written, and purposed to give an adrenaline thrill ride. It is the “fight or flight” experience.  It is meant to be associated with personal power.  (Even reading this last paragraph brings back memories of these activities and triggers adrenaline.)

It is the adrenaline experience that fuels many actions including violence – the “fight” part of the coin. This is the thirst for blood – the rush of adrenaline that comes with violence.  Many seek this.  Fear is also the adrenaline experience – the “flight” part of the experience. We either “run like everything the other way” or we fight.  Many seek this, also.  Fight or flight are both the 2 sides of one coin.

Currently, in our world, our reaction to violence is to bring forth more violence, because the original violence triggers fear within us, and through our response of violence, we’re trying to no longer be afraid via overpowering the original fear and violence.

Put another way, in our world, our reaction to this type of 3rd Chakra experience is to bring forth more of these types of 3rd Chakra experiences, because the original 3rd Chakra experience triggers another 3rd Chakra experience within us, and through our responding with this type of 3rd Chakra experience we’re trying to no longer have these types of 3rd Chakra experiences by trying to overpower the original 3rd Chakra experience with another 3rd Chakra experience.

Do you kind of get where the problem is with fear and violence – fight or flight?

Einstein once said, “We can’t solve a problem at the level at which it was created.” We can’t solve the cycle of violence and fear – a type of 3rd Chakra cycle of experiences – by bringing forth more violence and fear – more of the same types of 3rd Chakra experiences.

Options for Something Different

However, we can step out of the cycles of these 3rd Chakra experiences with two different changes in consciousness.

The 2nd option for change is to move our awareness up to the 4th Chakra and begin practicing 4th Chakra experiences whenever we are aware that we are responding to our life situations, circumstances, and experiences with adrenaline.  It’s not always easy to do, because this act requires self-awareness.  The self-awareness also needs to include the knowledge and awareness of the difference between 3rd and 4th Chakra experiences.  This takes practice – months of practice added to years of practice added to one’s life path full of practicing.

This is a process of observing one’s self.  It is also referred to “stepping aside and watching one’s self pass by.”  Many times we can recall memories of our experiences easier, and this gives us the chance to “observe” how we reacted in the past.  It also can become possible then to remember the present and our current responses happening in the ‘now’ moment.

The 4th Chakra’s center of response can move us to much different responses.  It also can move us to many different choices available to us.  None of the choices are “to not feel the 3rd Chakra” or “to feel nothing at all”.  The 4th Chakra isn’t about “feeling nothing”.

Quite the opposite – the 4th Chakra is about feeling more than only what the 3rd Chakra offered.  The 4th Chakra, the heart Chakra, is the Chakra centered on Love and the many different forms which love can take.  Love can take many forms – compassion, mercy, forgiveness, patience, understanding, tolerance, etc.

In this topic, Love can come forth from the 4th Chakra in the form of compassion and understanding.  This is the 1st option which I skipped over previously.  The 1st change to the 3rd Chakra experiences from moving our response into the 4th Chakra is the compassion and understanding of the 3rd Chakra experiences of fight or flight – the compassion and understanding of the experiencing of fear and violence and why we experience these.

A transformation can take place by moving our responses into the 4th Chakra.  As human beings, holding on to our compassion, we can begin to understand just how difficult and confusing it is to be a human being.  We can understand what human beings go through to struggle and live on this planet.  We can understand how our thinking styles, our ways of responding to experiences, and our chosen ways of believing can be so difficult to step out of, that it is any wonder that we’re able to find peace at all.

Being a human being is hard.  We try to latch onto some way of living that may possibly lead us to something better.  But, as human beings we can only do the best we can.  Sometimes, we can only do the best we can at doing the best we can.  Hence why responding from the 4th Chakra can be so important and helpful.  It is from our heart that we offer compassion for the struggles of life that people face.  It is from our heart that we find patience to extend to someone else who needs just that.  It is from our heart that we find it within ourselves to live in some form of peace with others, allowing all the different ways of being human to try to coexist.

It is from our heart that we can transform the experience of fear and violence to one of compassion and understanding which in turn, can lead to acceptance and tolerance.  Love is possible, when we move our consciousness from our adrenaline experiences to our heart – the center of love experiences and all the different forms that love could manifest.

As humans and spirits, we are all our Chakras and all our experiences – the sum total of all experiences we’ve ever had, plus the sum of all our potential possibilities for the future.  That’s a lot, so, no experience or response we’ve ever had, is not “not part of us”.  Nor should they be.

But, we have choices that we can make.  We are more than automatic responses of fear and violence.  We can make choices of healing and learning.  We can make choices of compassion and understanding.  We can make choices of growing in our awareness of our self and our being a human being.  These choices can help us heal our self, our relationship, our communities, and even, our world.  “With God, all is possible” no longer are just fancy words, but can become a new way of living.

The transformation of the 3rd Chakra by moving into the 4th, is a transformation of fear and violence to one of learning, understanding, compassion, and patience.   In turn, these can also lead to mercy, forgiveness, and a healing of our Family of Man.

World Weather Predictions

Because weather is such an important topic to so many places on the whole Earth, I’ll add what I see with regards to different areas.

Australia

Australia has been going through a tremendous drought.  I still see 2.5 more years of drought happening, but after those 2.5 years, the drought will diminish step by step from then on. So, in 2018, I see the drought taking the other turn and begin the process of lessening.  While 2 more years of drought is a problem, I do see its end.  Australia is going into its Summer temperatures right now and this year will see some rain associated with at least 1  major storm.  Look for the storm to not hit Australia directly.  This means there won’t be a lot of rain, but there will be some.

Europe

I see a general direction of the same weather patterns which Europe has had for the last 4 years.  I don’t see a lot of fluctuation or dramatic changes.  Climate Change is real and the weather patterns of the last 4-5 years are to be considered the new normal.  The nearest time period I see any dramatic change will be 2018 when I see Europe having an extremely mild winter with 2019 being the pendulum swinging back the other way.  This is far off in the future, but gives the indication that the weather patterns Europe has had recently are going to continue.

As a whole, expect lots of rain over the next 18-24 months.  More than what has been “normal” in decades past.

South Africa

This is one area where the dramatic weather extremes are going to be felt less.  I’m still seeing some extreme weather – with regards to higher than average temperatures, but not beating up the area, like is happening in Australia.  I see the extremes in weather being related to temperatures rather than being extreme storms.  I see a severe mosquito (swarming) problem coming for South Africa – worse that before.  This is related to the weather somewhat.

India

As a whole, the Climate change effect for India’s weather will be a longer rainy season.  While I see the level of intensity of the storms will be near the same level as compared to decades past, the length of the rain season will be longer and come earlier.  This does mean that there will be significant flooding in cities as well as rural areas.  India will face some disasters related to flooding.  Disease and insects will become a problem because of the flooding.  Clean drinking water will be part of the challenge for people during the floods, and this should not be a surprise.
