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.  

In the Light of Day

There are many in the world, right now, that are saying, “I have the truth.  Come to me for the truth.”  We see people saying this in politics, on the internet, social media, television, radio, etc.  Also, right now, there are many in the world that eagerly seek to blame and condemn others, saying “the others are lying”, “media is lying”, “this person is lying”, “those people conspire in bad activities”, “this or that group is corrupt and wicked”.  There are many, right now, in the world who get paid A LOT of money to say just these words.

At the same time, we humans carry fear with us as we live our life.  There is plenty that triggers us to fear.  I won’t list the litany of all the triggers.  Some of us humans even want to trigger fear in others – not always for underhanded reasons, but sometimes to sound an alarm of things that we personally fear.

In dealing with being human, when we’re caught up in words people say and the fears of people, we can forget that as spirit beings living in human bodies, we are not originally of this world.  We can forget that we came from spirit and will return to spirit.  We can forget that we came not to add to fear to the world, but to add to truth, – and not mankind’s truth, but the truth of Spirit.  We came to help share the truth which even Christ worked to bring into this world, and still works to bring into this world – even when Christ’s messages may get misinterpreted, distorted, misunderstood, changed, usurped, refabricated, remade, altered, or even dismissed or rejected.

However, as it turns out, the simpleness of Christ’s message makes it easy to return to His original message:

“Love one another as I have loved you.”

“Love God above all else, and Love your neighbor as yourself.”

“Perfect Love casts out fear.”

“For mankind, it is impossible, but with God, all things are possible.”

Christ, or put another way, the Light and Life of the World does not hide in the shadows of the Internet nor behind anonymity, seeking to be anonymous while condemning selected people, criticizing whomever is chosen as an enemy, attacking people or trying to bring separation and blame. Christ teaches in the light of day, in simple ways, out in the open, with words that demonstrate Love, again, and that Love is real. 

But, not everyone wants this.

Christ speaks of unity and brotherhood of all people and all life. Christ speaks of the Father/Mother/God’s Infinite and unending forgiveness, mercy and Love. He speaks of the joy God feels when someone, who regularly chooses acting without love, living in shadows and hiding behind anonymity, chooses instead to seek the Healing of Loving Kindness. 

But not everyone wants this.

***

The Good Friend

All things from Christ come from Love and come with Love.  This is why all things from Christ heal individual hearts and shared hearts. Everything from the Christ within brings us out from hiding in the shadows – into the light of day where goodwill towards each other becomes real again. Christ/Love gives the best of Life – Love – to all people equally and does not hold back on giving tolerance or mercy continuously. Christ tells us that if we choose to condemn others or remove the splinter from another’s eye, then first remove the huge chunks from our own. Christ says, “let he who is without sin cast the first stone.” Then says, “Neither do I condemn you.”

There are many, many, many that choose condemning anyone they can think of or with whom they disagree.  There are many, many, many that choose hiding in the shadows and behind anonymity, again and again.  But, Christ’s message is about Loving one another and not about conspiracies, slander, or blaming.  He knocks at the door to our heart and mind.  He brings healing of our feelings of despair and aloneness.  He offers His hand again to help us show tolerance and understanding in the open, in the light of day for all to see.

At any time, we can choose for ourselves to follow the many, many, many who are generous in their condemnation and judgement towards anyone  that disagrees with them or whom they choose as their enemy. At any time, we can choose for ourselves to follow slandering and throwing volumes of disrespect on anyone who doesn’t side with us. 

Verbal abuse and verbal violence are available to anyone who wants abuse and violence to be part of their heart and mind, and in turn, what they offer the world.  Deciding to no longer believe that all people are one people on this Earth – is available to believe and has many that choose to teach this.  Denying that all souls are equal in the Eyes of God, – saying this is the truth – and denying Christ’s words “I will never leave you or forsake you” is available if we seek this to be in what we participate.

***

Christ really does say to us, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”  There are many, many, many that seek to teach us that we are lost and alone unless we follow them only, and hide with them in their condemning of the group of their choosing.  Even we who sincerely seek the Truth of Christ, can become lost, if we don’t yet know that this journey of seeking truth starts with unlocking the door of our own Heart.  While Christ honors His own words, we don’t give the same words back to Him.  For us, we still stumble and fall in our efforts to say back “Christ, I will never leave you nor forsake you.”  For us it is to pick ourselves back up, dust off our clothes and try again, to walk the path of following Him.

Ultimately, we can only ask ourselves in our own heart, in the moment we are still with our own thoughts, “do we seek to throw stones and add to the condemning and judging that many others want? Do we seek to add to the conflict which many, many, many others choose?  Do those who we align with – seek to cast the first stone ….

… or does that which we seek offer forgiveness and mercy while we let go of our stones of judgement and condemning? Does that which we seek point to how we can heal our own hearts and relationships, then point to how we can feel a sameness even with those who differ from us? 

Better choices are available to us.  Better solutions are available to us.  Better hearts are available to us.  Greater love is available to us, for us, in us and to heal us.

Love is real.  Christ is real.  And these are easy to say “no” to.  Yet, when better choices are available, and instead we say, “Yes” – instead seeking within ourselves – to unlock the door, open it, and say, “Lord, you are welcome within my heart and mind.  Teach me the Truth of You.  Show me the way of Loving,” Christ will not hold back and will never hide from us.  Christ will not hide behind anonymity.  Christ will not speak with slander or of conspiracies.

The Christ, who exists within our own Self, ready to be expressed to ourselves and others, will show us the Joy of the Infinite One in helping us to recognize that Oneness with others is the path of the Infinite Consciousness of Love.  Christ will show us that nothing separates us from the brotherhood of life except what is in our own mind and our own heart towards others.  Christ teaches us that there is no blame of ourselves and others that cannot be forgiven.  Even today, He speaks of acceptance, tolerance and Infinite opportunities through Infinite Patience, which are available to us in any and every moment in which we can unlock the door to the Light and say, “God, are you there?  Please, come in.  Please, help me.  Help us.  Teach me of you.  Teach me of Love.”

God bless us, Everyone.

“No one speaking of judgment and condemnation speaks for God. No one speaking fear and retribution speaks for God. The one speaking love and forgiveness, kindness and mercy –
This one speaks for God.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2008-2021, 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?

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.

Praying for Now

When we see what is happening in our world, our nation, our state, etc., regardless of what our POV’s, our paradigms, our opinions, and our feelings are, one real thing we can do is pray :

“God, help us.  God, help us.  God, help us….”  … ALL.

On ALL sides of the issues are souls.  Through eternity are all the souls struggling, in sorrow, in pain, seeking …. that which is a better way …

… EVEN WHEN horror, more sorrow and more pain is what we create.

It is the prayers and meditations for ALL that flows through the Christ.  It is the healing of ALL life that is the source of power within Christ.  Not just the people or things we personally want…. but ALL life.

When we leave the prayer to God to fill in the rest, which requires us to believe that God/Christ knows better than we do where and how our prayers can help ALL, God carries our prayers to help heal ALL.

When we pray for ALL souls – which includes ourselves – who bring forth pain and suffering for others – which we all still do in some way in our lives – this is when we connect to the way that leads to accomplishing the purpose of the prayers and meditations.

“God, help ALL life.  God, help ALL life.  God, help ALL life.”

*******

We will see things get worse for so many of us.  As I’ve said in so many postings on this blog, we are entering into THE dark times, or more accurately “darkened times” – darkened because these times include the manifesting of more events which have little love and little light in them – far away from Love and Light.

These times are the “3rd of 3 Events” which I’ve spoken up for years.  These times are created by consciousness which seeks to not manifest Love and Light.  This consciousness has been growing from and is the combined consciousness through thousands of years, and through hundreds of millions of souls, if not over a billion souls throughout time on this planet – throughout the existence of mankind.

We are experiencing the manifesting of much of this darkened energy in order to engage the higher part of ourselves to bring forth Light and Love, and forgiveness, and mercy, and compassion, and patience, and long-suffering (which we’re experiencing) and more….  into the relationships we have with people and ALL life – both directly in our life and indirectly in our life, because we are on the same planet with ALL human beings.

Our prayers and meditations are the medical response to ALL souls suffering, in sorrow and pain, right now.  We are the front-line of the energy of this planet – and our prayers and meditations are the treatment and medicine for ALL.  This energy doesn’t just create a new environment, but it can and does strengthen, raise, and enliven/activate the Spirit, Power and Love active in the planet – within the hearts and minds of individual people/souls.

And remember, we are not the Master Physician.  We are the healing assistants saying, “Here I am, ready to help.  Guide me in how I can.  Use my prayers and meditations for God’s plan for ALL life.”

There is much more to be said about right now, and I will add as much as I can as time continues.

God, help us, ALL.  God, bless us, ALL.

We Have a Choice

I posted this on social media and I’ll post it here, also.

“Let’s not become that which we hate. We can choose. If we hate violence, let’s not become violence. If we hate profiling, let’s not profile. We have many good leaders who have demonstrated for us how to walk among mankind with respect and honor towards others.

Martin Luther King did not preach violence. Ghandi did not preach violence. Jesus Christ did not preach violence. They demonstrated the best of humanity in the face of violence, and showed us that which they sought – respect and honor.

They died because people instead chose violence rather than respect and honor. But they remain our true and real heroes of the world. Let’s become that which we respect and honor. Let’s become like our real heroes. We can choose. Let’s choose to follow real and true heroes, because…

…because, there are some people who are leaders of prejudice, who love prejudice, who demonstrate prejudice and teach prejudice. These are the ones who lead into violence, who love violence, who demonstrate violence, and who teach and spread violence.

They seek to create more prejudice and more violence in their own arenas. These are true and real cowards. They choose their prejudice and their own leading of people into violence. They’ll look upon their own prejudice and their own spreading of violence which they help create in their world & they will forever know inside themselves that they are the true cowards.”

The Question

Right now, with the Covid-19 virus, climate crisis, unemployment, immigration, etc, we see a lot of troubles, a lot of problems, a lot of a big mess happening in our world – not just our country, but our whole world – right now. Everyone has a story. Everyone has a complaint. Everyone has an opinion. Everyone has everything with regards to each others experiences.

And… we are asking questions. For some of us, one of the questions we also HAVE to ask is – “How does this serve me?” as an individual, and “How does this serve us?” meaning humanity. (I consider this 1 question even though it’s asked in two ways.)

There are real questions to ask, and this particular real question has a much deeper answer than just the surface answers being more complaints, more problems, and more opinions. This is a question which can bring an even greater understanding of our spiritual path, our spiritual place in life and our spiritual work in this situation.

It is also a question which must be looked at, considered, and let simmer over time. If we simply repeat the problems and gripes as if that were the answer, then we don’t have the answer. This is a question which must be examined in depth.

We can equate it with Christ’s dying on the cross. If we were standing at the base of the cross 2000+ years ago, we would think the answer is just another problem, loss of hope, and sign of more danger. But, looking at this question 2000+ years later, we can see there is a much more expansive answer to the question.

How does Christ’s death on the cross serve me? How does Christ’s death on the cross serve humanity. With asking it now, we can see that, for our self, there is more to the answer than just a momentary immediate answer which we might come up with off the top of our head.

We can ask the same thing about Gandhi’s death, Martin Luther King’s death, or many of the events which we consider disasters for people throughout history.

There are answers – deeper and more meaningful answers. And …. each of us can only ask for ourselves, because each of us has our own unique story, perspective and understanding. My answers come from my story, perspective and understanding. Yours come from yours.

The question is worth asking, because the answer that comes to us – for us alone – is worth knowing, … and the answer has meaning at some of the deepest parts of ourselves.

The May, 2020 1-day Retreat Not to be Scheduled

As I’ve written about on this site, we are in the time of the Earth where we have entered into the dark times (low vibration) manifesting as serious problems in the Earth.  There is so much going on spiritually, making this one of the most important times in human history (but we must do our inner work to help.)

I’ve written a lot about it, and you can find it on the website, (then select “3rd of 3 World Events” on the right side categories’ list.)  Several articles will come forward.  Only one of which is, “The New Age of Man Approaches: Part 1 of 2“.

There is a lot of upheaval manifesting.  And it’s going to affect us as well – individually and collectively.  It’s time to get creative and “see ourselves” as part of a community which needs us, as much as we may need them.  As I’ve mentioned, the Federal Govt. is NOT where help will come – it’s in the small communities which we are a part of – including our own retreat community.

It is a truth that we’re already behind in what should have been done, but no one is to blame for this.   We, the human race, are doing the best we can with what we have.  And we are not capable of or at the level of consciousness in which we could be handling this perfectly or magnificently.  We are still at a significantly educational level of consciousness.  So many are coming along kicking and screaming, while so many of us are turning the “human/spiritual evolutionary” gears – one gear tooth at a time.

Right now, I am NOT going to schedule a May, 2020 retreat. Instead, I’m going to try to do more writing online.  I’ve signed up for a Twitter account, and am sllloooooowwwwwwwwlllllyyyyyyyy learning it.  It is under the name Jodie Senkyrik or @JodieSenkyrik

I hope to use this to help be more active with questions, concerns, and the like which people may have.  That includes questions which all of you may have, which you believe I may be able to help with.

We’re now in the thick of things with regards to this time.  Much of this low vibration energy (called dark because it was created almost absent of the LIGHT) will manifest as painful events – suffering in the world.  As an example, in my own life, my dog of 9 years developed inoperable cancer and in a matter of 7 weeks, the tumor grew to the point that I had to euthanize her. Before that, her energy level was VERY HIGH for a dog of 13, and I might have thought she’d live to be 17 or 18, if I had not had psychic information telling me different.  I do see this as part of the energy manifesting in real ways in people’s lives – in this case, mine.  Where she might have lived another 4-5 years, she and I faced cancer.

Light in the Darkness

Our prayers and meditations will help to bring light to “darkened” times, so, I encourage each and everyone to keep up with their spiritual efforts, study, pray, meditate, talk to God, listen to the voice within, interact with your own guides and angels, remember we are part of a team which has many non-physical beings as spirit helper teammates, also, and them wanting to help even more than we tend to accept.  I’ve written a few articles which lists specific activities and practices which can help.  The Edgar Cayce readings are also one of the best places to go to get support and encouragement.

Remember, common sense, is a spiritual quality as well.  And when it happens that any of us gets caught up in panic or fear, simply step back and breathe, then ask for help and guidance within. Christ seeks to show how He is a best friend and can be called upon.  One of His favorite songs is, “You’ve Got A Friend.”  He likes to sing, “You just call out my name, and you know wherever I am , I’ll come running, to see you again.”

And I’m ready to do whatever I can to help, too, as part of this (t-His) team.

God bless all of you.

First, Consider This: Preface to the Psychic Predictions for 2020

Where to Start ?

In just a few “seconds”, it will be 2020 !

First, consider this with regard to what many of us are seeing psychically.  The entrance into the difficult years of 2021-2026 with what I mention here – will be both somewhat gradual, and somewhat quick.  This time period will challenge the whole world, and in many different ways.   Some will need saved, some will need help, some will be in positions of being able to save and some will be in positions of being able to help.

Because some of what I discuss will be gradual, some of it won’t be noticed too easily or quickly.  This does not mean it isn’t happening.  Because some of it will be quick, some will have a more dramatic impact.  This doesn’t mean that we can’t do anything about these related problems.

********

In 2020, how much effort we put into bringing forth very real energy of real love – the love that comes with real effort to try to bring forth kindness and mercy, forgiveness and understanding from within our self – will determine how open we can open the door which will lead to the new age of Man – which is closer than close, but yet will not come by itself if no effort to bring it is put forth.

2020 will be the transition year.  It will be a “hinge” year. Not only will certain things of decade of the 2020’s be influenced by the year 2020, but the hinge will “open the door” to 2021-2026 and the events of the next 6 years-some of the most significant (and challenging) of this age of Man. How “open” the “door” is opened is changing. The door is the door to potential progression and/or potential digression depending on the freewill choices every individual makes.

The door hinge is rusty. And it will take sincere effort to open, because this door is the door to our individual, as well as collective Heart – Our Collective Centered Heart, wherein the Infinite Consciousness of God is able to come forth into this world through the love, understanding and compassion we extend to all life – including all human beings – and YES, even all elected officials.

Through the ways we walk on our path in 2020, so will we then be able to extend into 2021-2026 the energy and consciousness which has been built on all years’ efforts leading up to and including the year 2020. Like a stairway, whichever level we are able to achieve in 2020, the next steps/years will be determined and measured by the previous steps/years’ efforts.

No special grace will save us if we ignore the call for Love in our lives both individually and collectively, and to manifest this Love, in the varied available potential forms in this world; the call which we have named ‘spiritual work’ for which humanity is desperate. While we are not called to be individually perfect or species perfect, we are called to be determined and willing to work at bringing forth the better and the best parts of ourselves – even when what we see in others makes us think others are doing the opposite, even when what we see in others, reflects what we consider the worst of humanity.

Christ’s Demonstration

At this point in human time, it is important to hold in our minds that Christ walked His path of Peace and Willingness to Help as our Brother, even when violence from all groups was erupting around Him. He walked His path of Love, of compassion, of healing, even when hatred surrounded Him. He neither condemned individuals nor governments for their “sins” (mistakes, bad decisions, harmful acts, hateful feelings, etc), but rather offered patience, mercy, forgiveness, long-suffering, and no judgement whatsoever – taking the High road in all ways, which, in turn, began the path of bringing Joy, through transformation, to a weary world.  This example is for us to work at, as well, when we face that which is happening in the world today and in the days to come.

In 2020, there will be many conflicts, both loud and visible, and quiet and in secret.  (I will get into some of them.) These will be mostly more as social conflict than military conflict, but some will be conflict between the military and civilians, as is happening already.

In 2020, sadly, there will be even more chances even for the elect to stop walking the spiritual path and return to where we were as a people.  Therefore, 2020 is a time for us to remember, “Yes, render unto Caesar, that which is Caesar’s” but don’t let it pull us away from or ignore/forget the next part – “to render unto God, that which is God’s.”

Give to God that which is God’s – including mercy, patience, compassion, kindness, long-suffering, and the love which we forget already exists forever in infinite time within our hearts – to the people we, personally, come in contact daily. Give to God that which is Gods – including Willingness – to build brotherhood, sisterhood, understanding, cooperation, charity, any so-far-learned wisdom, Oneness, and an open heart and an open mind in how we respond to the events of this day.

Freewill Choices

In the coming times, it becomes more significant to know that we have a choice between 2 options – Love or Fear – the 4th chakra or the 3rd chakra – “Loving kindness” or “Fight or Flight”. We cannot tell another person to choose what we, ourselves, haven’t chosen. In addition, our walking our own path of Love – how we relate to other people – can not be determined by or based on other people’s freewill choices about how they conduct their life.

2020 is a year of preparation and transition. Around the world, 2020 is also going to be a year dominating in both verbal dreams and verbal wars. 2020 will be a time of continued seeing the hopeful possibilities, as well as the real dangers in the years and decades ahead.  In 2020, we can begin recognizing that the ways of living of the past did, indeed, create the problems of the present, and we need individual effort (building to collective effort) in the present time in order to find new ways of living for the future.

All of Us

The coming 6 years which 2020 will lead us into – 2021-2026 – are of lower vibrations (also considered darker because this vibration of the actions which will be carried out is further away from the Love/Light vibration level.)  This energy is the remaining unhealed, yet transformed energy which would have manifested as a physical changing of the Earth’s poles – the Pole Shift (a tilting on its physical axis) which Edgar Cayce predicted if humanity had not done anything to change in the decades which followed his psychic reading. The Pole Shift’s source is a combination of natural evolution in the planet, as well as massive karmic energy which had been waiting to manifest all at once as the physical Pole Shift – but which has since been worked with so it won’t manifest all at once, now.

That remaining supreme turmoil energy being manifested through the Earth and through people, which will be experienced by many people of the Earth in the coming years is NOT the result of any one person. Neither Donald Trump becoming president nor Hillary Clinton, had she become president, is the cause of the problems in the world. Neither Republicans nor Democrats are responsible for the problems of the world – but rather individuals in all walks of life – also known as “All of Us”  It is the consciousness of the people of the world, throughout this Age of Man, heretofore unresolved in our subconscious, that gave birth to the leaders in this world, and the movements these leaders represent – not vice versa. The diversity of leaders also is representative of the consciousness of the people.

In the U.S., Donald Trump becoming president is the result of both the fears of things in the world, and the hope of alleviating these fears through victory and control over those things or people perceived as enemies- all third chakra.  It is the Collective Social Consciousness of the People of the World afraid of what “others” would do to bring harm that brought forth the “problems” which came from unmanifested consciousness energy waiting to be expressed in people’s lives.  This is not just in our time, but also throughout human history.  AND the challenges that I speak of are from energy, which has also come from all different times of human history.  Blaming others for our own contributions to this rather than acknowledging our own past life involvement, and subsequent challenge to forgive, does not help.

The Work

There already has been much work by millions of people to bring forth the higher minds and the energy of the higher minds with the energy of the Centered Heart. This work has been slowly elevating much of the energy in the Earth in preparation of entering into the coming 6 years as a crucible precursor to the next age of Man beginning in 2038.  This is the work which has transformed us away from the physical Pole Shift spoken of before.

There has been limited success. We are somewhat successful, but success in this case is not 100%. The potential results are not either black or white – yes or no, 0% or 100%. The amount of energy is based on the level of effort put into holding to the Centered Heart of Infinite Love, and ever returning to a connection to the Consciousness of the Higher Forces.

These referred to “forces” are the forces of practicing patience, and the forces that teach taking the higher road. It is the consciousness which sees the whole human race struggling and in pain, with no side being the right side or the wrong side. All people have within us, all traits, including those we go to war against, regardless of whether we acknowledge it to our self or deny it to our self.  This means that every person is equal in potential character to every other person and equally both right and wrong.  As the Edgar Cayce Readings said, “There is good in the worst of us, and bad in the best of us.”  This also means there is good in the worst elected official, and there is bad in the best elected official.  This reality is true for all human beings.

As we make effort to forgive instead of blame, to be understanding instead of criticize and condemn, feel compassion instead of rejection of others, walk the path of long-suffering instead of attack and condemnation, then we are working on bringing higher vibrations into this world which will in turn help heal and resolve the energies of disasters which are physical, social, spiritual, mental, financial, or emotional each ready to manifest.

In this time, all of us are not called to be perfect, but to pour forth our effort to forgive. We are not called to be saints but to try again, and again, and again, when we stumble on our path. We are not called to heal all that needs healed, but rather address today what lands in our laps, today.

Praying for Those Who Have Passed

There’s a story that describes a child in prayer and the child is simply saying the alphabet over and over.  An adult asks why the child is simply saying the alphabet.  The child replies, “God already knows what I’m  praying for, so the words don’t matter.”

First thing to consider, as many of us know, the act of praying is not the act of reciting words.  Even though words are used and reciting can occur, as in saying The Rosary, anyone who prays, knows that it isn’t the words that are the most important part.  It is the feelings, determination, effort and “meaning it” within our hearts which are the most important parts – not for trying to “reach” God, but rather to open ourselves up to God.

Second thing to consider, God does not make barriers to love.  That’s the same as thinking God makes barriers to God.  This is not the purpose, desire or essence of The Infinite Consciousness of Infinite Love who tells us, “Come unto me, and I will come unto you.”

This also means that Death is not a barrier to love or rather Nothing is a barrier to love.  It is our own mind and heart that establish barriers to love, and hence the barriers to our loved ones who pass away.  It is our beliefs that establish barriers.  From our beliefs, we get our motivation.  So, the question is, “Are we motivated to pray for our loves ones who have passed away?”

Our Guides and Angels

Each of us has a host of beings on the other side of the veil of death who want to help us in our life here on Earth.  But, we can help them, as well.

If we are willing to allow the belief that “with God, all things are possible”, then it is possible to send our love to those who have passed on.  And it is possible that they will receive it.  In fact, for those who have been able to develop their intuition or psychic ability, we can see the benefit that is made for those on the other side, when we continue to send them our love, throughout our life.  They receive the energy of this love and they are helped and strengthened by the love – in similar ways that we are while we are in the Earth.  Sending them our love, buoys them, helps them to acclimate to their new surroundings, helps them to further their ability to learn while on the other side, helps them to greater recognize the connection and oneness which we have with each other, and much more.

At the same time, our prayers for them are like for them to stick a finger in an electric prayer plug and absorb the prayer energy which is for them to receive.  Prayers for those who have passed, can help them to open their own consciousness to the omnipresent consciousness of the higher forces.  This can bring a spiritual healing and consciousness healing in the same way that it would if they were in the Earth when prayers were given for them.

Whether in the Earth or no longer in the Earth, our love sent to another (or others) and our prayers sent for another (or others), are worthwhile and brings forth the “Living Food” which each of us are starved for, to our body, mind, and soul.

“The prayers of a few will save many,”  and these many can be anywhere in the Infinite realm of the Infinite Consciousness of God.  We can choose to open our minds and our hearts to realms even beyond death, or we can choose to believe that death is too great a barrier – it’s always up to us to decide which beliefs we will select.  If we put ourselves in our loved ones shoes, would we want to be on the receiving end of them sending their love beyond death’s illusionary veil?  If we were on the other side, would we hope that others care for us enough to pray for us?

Our love and our prayers for those who have passed on, can accomplish a great deal for the well-being of those we still love even though they are no longer with us.

Who or What Are We Changing?

It is said, “what does it benefit a man to gain all he wants, if he loses his soul in the process?” It is the same for all of us. What does it gain us, if we save the Earth, but lose our souls, our own selves, our community, our society, our nation, our civilization, our human race in the process? We can do both, but we can only save the Earth, if we save our own Self, as well.

Put another way, the Earth is a reflection of humanity’s consciousness, and we will create in the Earth that which is in our own consciousness. If we are polluted, we will pollute the Earth, as well. If we are destructive, we will destroy the Earth, as well. If we are abusive, we will abuse the Earth, as well. If we are in conflict with each other, we will be in conflict with the Earth, as well.

But, if we are kind to each other, we will be kind to the Earth. If we show compassion to each other, we will show compassion to the Earth. If we are forgiving to each other, or show mercy to each other, we will be forgiving and merciful to all things of the Earth. If we are tolerant of each other, our tolerance will extend to our planet and all life on the planet, as well.

We can be willing to try to save the Earth all we want. But the real issue is are we willing to save our own SELF – our own heart, mind and spirit?

We, human beings, too often, choose conflict over and over and over again. We, too often, choose war and violence towards others, whether in entertainment or in real life. We, too often, choose abuse of others as a way of expressing ourselves.

We may easily condemn those we see as doing this, but if we were to walk in their shoes, we could easily be the ones doing this. We condemn those who sell the weapons of death, those who make the money, those who pollute the world, those who stand on the backs of others to make their own infinitely short life easy and themselves rich, but…. we are the ones who attend movies watching superheroes show us how to use violence to save the world, buy the products to make our lives easier, who buy the stocks in the companies to make the money, who imagine ourselves living easy and suffering-free.

We can and do point the finger at corporations and companies who sometimes make the world a worse place to live, but we are the workers at these places, we are the managers, we are the ones who make money in the offices, and we are the ones who say, “I care about my life first. I can’t afford to save the world. I’ll do something if it’s easy and convenient.”

*******

If we don’t start with our self – our own hearts and our own beliefs and our own thoughts – changing where the conflict and warring starts – inside ourselves – as individuals – then we will only create the same problems over and over again.  No change will happen externally of ourselves, if no change happens internally within ourselves. We might be willing to work on ourselves or change things in the Earth – for one generation – but without the change inside our own soul, we are simply changing things for others who are just like us – in wanting war, and in wanting conflict, and in wanting the golden calf.

A spiritual life is “building for eternity”. I’m not talking about a constructed “religion-based” heaven of “spending eternity with the angels singing hymns in perfect bliss” – but the eternity where we work on ourselves to change who we are inwardly, how we relate to other people – how we relate to our brothers and sisters at whom currently we throw bullets of every kind.  I’m talking about the eternity of growth, change and possibilities referred to when He said, “With God, All Things Are Possible.”

We are born to come into the Earth, challenging us to learn about our real relationships to others – not our physicality and not our religio-city, but our spirit existence – inhabiting a body for a very short time to grow and learn to find better ways to be among ourselves as people.

God sends us into the Earth to practice Love in every manifestation. God sends us into the Earth for a very short time, to demonstrate the bounty of Love- through Kindness, Compassion, Patience, Service, Mercy, Forgiveness and other fruits of the spirit.

And when this very short life is over, we get a chance to examine how much we learned, how much we extended kindness, compassion, patience, mercy, tolerance, and more. We get the chance to look back and see if we learned anything, and what it is we actually then taught to others.  We get the opportunity to look forward to see what we can work on during our future sojourns.

We get the chance to look back at this life compared to all our other previous lives, try to understand what helped and what hurt our efforts.  We can ask where we used this opportunity to help, where we used this opportunity to harm, or both. Did we change? Did we grow? Did we learn? Did we waste anything of this life ignoring our purpose?

“With God, all things are possible”, includes learning, growing, and bringing forth love.  This includes, learning, growing and practicing changes within our own hearts and minds.  With this, we find encouragement to help us get back up and dust ourselves off when we get tripped up by the billions of things that we thought were important, but turned out not to be, or at least, not to be as much as we thought.

“With God, all things are possible” includes helping change to come into the Earth, and it then to come in via the changes we make in our hearts and minds – bringing real change, lasting change, and the change that is passed down to generations instead of being lost in the next generation.  The external changes of the world are like dust in the wind.  The internal changes are built on that which lasts for eternity.
