As souls living in the Earth, we create circumstances for ourselves and others.
What is not widely understood is that in looking at the sum of all human lives which a soul experiences, and under the umbrella of what is commonly called, “Karma”, when we, through our own freewill, create problem experiences in individual lives and/or in the world as a whole, we are then the ones who are given the divine task of cleaning up those problems. Of course, this cleaning is done over whatever time or lives are needed, and with as much help as is needed.
Look out at all the people who want to help clean up the planet, or clean up societal issues, or clean up a certain aspect of life – the environment, the government, medical knowledge, law, spirituality, education etc. They are people like you and I. This means like us, they feel within their hearts and minds the desire to bring better things into this Earth – to help make the world a better place.
As you might understand where I’m going with this, almost all of the 7.3 billion people who want to help “clean up” this world – make it a better place for all people – are the one’s who helped create these problems from within our past lives. (Not everyone.) Like you and I, others have learned from mistakes of past lives, and this learning is now deep within our hearts and souls helping us be inspired, motivated and understanding of the benefits of creating a better world for all life.
Those of us who are ready to do something to help – whenever we are ready of our own freewill to be willing to do something to help – are the ones who enter into the middle of the “problems” in some form, and work at leading new ways into the future. If we led the way in creating the mess, we can find ourselves with opportunities to lead the way in cleaning up the mess.
This process is not punishment. It is not obligation or penance. It is a process of healing, forgiveness, mercy and more. It comes from within our hearts – a new recognition of the opportunity for brotherhood among peoples – a recognition of the benefit and healing that comes with compassion and cooperation, kindness, forgiveness and patience. This feeling of wanting to contribute to the betterment of humankind comes from the best and greatest part of ourselves.
I’ve had past lives in Atlantis, partially as military personnel. In several lives and in several roles. I went to war, attacked, harmed and killed people. Without choosing further learning on my part, I then experienced lives where I had been attacked, harmed and killed. However, from then a willingness to learn greater understandings of the human experience, that which I learned from human life as a whole, led to a greater understanding of much of the experiences I created for others on the receiving end of what I dished out.
After much of these “learning” lives, I became priests, doctors, Seers and other service roles which have given me opportunity to help heal whom I wounded, help clean up the messes I’ve made, help repair the things I broke, and help bring together that which I took apart. This greater purpose gave me inspiration and life in the doing.
I’ve been so many different nationalities and races, that my memories of these lives help me to listen to and feel more understanding of the pain and suffering of others, as well as willingness to work hard at letting go of knee-jerk judgment and condemning of people on a particular side. (I still stumble at times, though.)
I walk in my shoes as a white man this life, but I recognized the other lives still existing within me, and in some I still seek and learn to bring forth life rather than take away life – meaning I still have work to do.
I have past lives as female, so they are within me. I have past lives as other races, other social roles, different religions and different sexual orientations, so those experiences are within me. I’m not those people on the outside anymore, but I am, like every one of us humans, the sum of all my past lives, experiences and learning, even if remembering all these experiences doesn’t come easy or automatic, (as every human knows.)
Why do some people choose to harm if they’ve had past lives? Because we all “remember in our soul” different things. As I’ve written in other articles, the 9-11 hijackers subconsciously remembered being on the receiving end of tremendous Atlantean attacks – with their feelings and thoughts that Atlantis- a great technical power invading everywhere in the world- was wrong to do that to people. The hijackers wanted opposition and revenge. They remembered their hatred even though they didn’t remember their past lives.
A lot of us remember our hatred. A lot of us humans remember feelings of bitterness and desire for vengeance. We may come up with today’s version of justification, but we are still the sum of all our feelings whether healing or harmful. We still, of our own freewill, get to choose which feelings we will act upon.
Some of us subconsciously remember love, also. Some of us “remember” lives in which the Master touched our life – directly or through others. Some remember spiritual lessons which they’ve learned, some remember a drive within our hearts motivating us to greater purposes.
It’s not an easy mix when we remember something worthwhile. We can lead ways to better paths, but we need to remember that it was ourselves who helped create those worse paths. When we seek to help bring healing from pain and suffering, we have to watch out for our blaming anyone who represents the person who we were, back when we helped create the pain and suffering. In actuality, most of us, are struggling not with the other person, but rather with who we were in that past life. We may “remember in our soul” that the “other person” is capable of harm, because we caused harm when we walked in those same shoes.
We are on this path together, meaning all of us are called to help heal all the different aspects of human consciousness that need healing within ourselves, whether we approach this task from one direction or some other direction. As we heal ourselves, we are helping heal the whole of human consciousness – not all in one lifetime, of course, but as Edgar Cayce says, “One hair at a time”.
If this seems daunting, just remember, we have eternity to do this, and as John says, “All you need is Love, dat, da, da, da dahhhhhhh.” Love is “leading new paths into the future, instead of following the old paths of the past” – leading the new ways of love, cooperation, compassion, forgiveness, mercy, patience, respect, and letting go of judgment instead of following the old ways of selfishness, hatred, condemnation, judgment and disregard.
We’re in this world together. We won’t have the same ideas, beliefs, paths and ways to manifest our hearts and souls, but that’s not the important part. The important part is that since we have the freewill to choose what motivates us, we can choose to manifest the best healing parts within us, or the worst harming parts within us.
“We can be among the first ones to lead the new ways into the future, or we can be among the last ones to follow the old ways of the past. ” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2007-2018, Jodie Senkyrik)
“We have eternity to work this out. This means that we have eternity to forgive ourselves and others … if we really want to take that long.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2014, Jodie Senkyrik)

It doesn’t always benefit us to know what possible futures there are, if we don’t know that we can help bring a better future, change a harmful future, or don’t know the best and most effective ways to change the future.
Many times, people have asked me what to do when they get a psychic premonition of a possible problem, disaster or harmful future. My answer is always the same. These events come to us, so that we take steps to help heal, avoid or change the event. We cannot always take physical steps to change a harmful event, but we can ALWAYS take spiritual steps – through prayer as well as sending light through either meditation or other methods. We may not be able to stop a harmful event completely, but our prayers come with energy to transform the event like a high vibration tuning fork affecting a low vibration tuning fork.
The Feb 10-11, 2018 weekend retreat will help us explore the paths set before us and help us practice the steps which can potentially change paths for the better for all, even if we have differing opinions of what is better.
I have psychically seen the future change many times through our spiritual work and effort. Many paths that had been forewarned about have been changed. Events which had been foreseen have been healed and dissolved through efforts before these events manifest. In essence, the Light can dissipate the imminent dark clouds.
You are welcome to join us February 10-11, 2018, in learning more of what we can do to help ourselves, friends and families, and the world in which we live by sitting in a comfortable position, closing our eyes, going within, turning our minds to the heavens and raising God’s energy in the world through meditation, prayer and understanding.

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
$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.
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.

Due to worsening weather and a possibility of freezing rain in some parts of central Texas causing possible dangerous driving conditions, and other potential problems, I’m postponing this retreat until a later date. Some of our attendees have long distances to drive. Attending a retreat should not be an endurance test or a gauntlet…. (and for the most part ‘yes’, but I was still hoping.)
2018: Looking Ahead, Going Within
Dec 31, 2017 to Jan 1, 2018:
From Sunday morning, Dec. 31, 2017 to Monday afternoon, Jan 1, 2017, please join myself and others gathering for the purpose of discussion and meditation for the new year – 2018. Many happenings are being foreseen for 2018 as well as the future years, and I will offer several sessions discussing this. We will also have silent and guided meditations including a meditation joining others around the world. We will bring in higher energy to help begin 2018.
“2018: Looking Ahead, Going Within” is a smaller ‘24-hour’ event. Hopefully, it can be the 1st event of some small, quick, and easy-access events. This event has one overnight. The sleeping over for one night allows for a later Q&A session, group gatherings, and planning a midnight meditation (Edgar Cayce recommended 2am being the ideal time, but that’s hard to do.) For those interested, overnight dream incubation covering 2018 will be included. Discussion of dreams will happen the 2nd day. (Sharing a dream is up to the dreamer and never required.)
24 hours is quick. Because of this, Camp Capers costs (for meals and overnight) can be minimal with easy access to San Antonio, Austin, Blanco, Kerrville, Fredericksburg and nearby areas. Still, the concentration of the program might make the time intense. Because it is shorter, we can relax some, but we will still have a scheduled itinerary. In addition, if another person would like to present something about 2018 at this 1st event, please come forth. So, there are possibilities.
Registration deadline has passed, but it’s still possible to register and attend. To register, send an email to me at email@example.com. I need the number of people, the number of people per meals each desires, and your choice of rooms/beds. By Dec 15th, Camp Capers required (A) the best estimate for the number of people for each meal, ( B) the best estimate for the number of each rooms/beds. Credit cards can only be accepted through this blog Paypal button below, and will not be accepted at the door. Checks, Money Orders or cash can be paid when you arrive. To register, send an email with your information to firstname.lastname@example.org. To pay by credit card, please use this button:
The Button will lead you to pay through Paypal, and you do not need a Paypal account. You’ll see the Paypal login page, BUT scroll down and you’ll see the Credit Card payment link. The Paypal Link page does not itemize the fees. Insert the total amount of your payment.
Information needed in email:
1. Overnight? Or 1-day? [$40 overnight or $25/day]
2. Which room you prefer? If all the H.S. rooms are taken, you’ll be assigned into a bunkhouse. [Health Services rooms (4 rooms total) with 2 single beds per room @ $62/$52 or the Bunkhouses with many beds/room @ $31] (When the day comes, there might be a few of the Lodge rooms available at $83/$72. I’ll let you know when you arrive.)
3. Which meals you want? [Lu-$13, Di-$15, Br-$10, Lu-$13]
No one will be turned away at the door for not registering beforehand, but IT SURE HELPS IF YOU DO, (so we can give Camp Capers office an accurate number of people to prepare for.)

What information did I leave out? What questions did I not answer about the retreat?
We have a lot of news about sexual harassment and sexual predators, people – mostly well-known men – who are charged with misusing their positions of power or influence to harass others sexually. Because it has been easier than usual to isolate these incidences and charge the people with these abuses, it has been very easy for many people to jump on the band-wagon to condemn and judge those who are singled-out.
The trouble is that the problem has a deeper core. On the surface, we can easily imagine and see how these harassing incidences play out. We can also understand how people can take advantage of others. We have been doing this to each other for millennium after millennium.
But, in looking at this, I’m seeing a deeper issue and cause that is across the board – human related – rather than just being isolated incidences. I’m seeing sexual harassment on the job as only a symptom of this deeper human-wide issue.
What I see is that the issue is not about sex and power. It is about respect. It is about whether we respect other people in other situations, in other circumstances of life, in other genders, other religions, other cultures, other races. The question is put to us – do we respect others?
It’s easy to say, ‘well, respect has to be earned.’ No, it doesn’t. No infant has ever been charged with ‘not deserving respect’ because they haven’t yet earned it. No child has ever been labeled in school – “undeserving of anyone’s respect because they haven’t fulfilled anything deserving it”. We don’t say at some point, ‘they’ve now grown up, and we can decide whether they’ve earned respect or not.’
As human beings, we don’t think about these things, but in the back of our minds, as family and friends of those infants and children, and without thinking, we hold some level of respect for them automatically. That level is usually based on the amount of respect we generate in our own heart for human beings in general.
As souls, we are innately born into existence with respect from the Father/Mother God. As souls, we recognize the reality of each of us having our own parcel of the Godhead within our own existence and spirit. We are all sparks of the Infinite Consciousness of God, and from this Infinite Consciousness of God comes respect as well as the other Spirit Qualities of Love, Compassion, Mercy and others. These qualities reside within us waiting for us to express them outwardly towards others. By the very nature of our existence, we are children of God and innately are already deserving of respect, and called to give respect (as well as deserving of love, kindness, mercy, etc. – then called to give love, kindness, mercy, etc) by our very existence. Yet, we don’t always automatically receive them from others or give them to others.
As human beings and spiritual beings, we are already deserving of Love, of mercy, of kindness, etc., … and of respect. But, across the board of all human existence, we can see where we fall extremely short on giving that respect, or love or kindness, etc. to others.
When we actively work to respect another person – consciously – we treat that person so much better. We work to not harm them. We work to be kind, generous and merciful to them. We work to forgive them, to support them and to offer them as much of the best of ourselves whenever they need it.
When we actively don’t respect someone, it becomes so easy for us to demonstrate that lack or small amount of respect through abuse of all kinds, harassment, insults, condemnation, judgmental criticism and every other means to demean them and look down on them. It becomes easy for us to charge them with “no longer deserving respect’. When we choose to not respect, it becomes easy to mistreat and abuse them. When we have little or no respect for another person or group of people, it becomes easier for us to enslave and kill them. (When we have little or no respect for others, subconsciously, we can have little or no respect for our self.)
We usually have in our individual minds and hearts that measuring stick which we hold up to them and say, ‘they don’t deserve respect because…’. The reasons are vast and numerous. They don’t deserve respect because of . . . their gender, their race, their religion, their lack of religion, their social status, their occupation, their age, their spiritual beliefs, their country of origin, their education, their location, their behaviors, their lack of behaviors, their affiliations, their past, their present, their future, their X, their Y, their Z and on and on.
Look across the board to all humans and look for some person or group who is giving respect to every human on the planet. Not someone who is “saying” I give respect, but rather someone who is giving that respect without being asked. Look far and wide, because when we are honest with ourselves, and respecting what honesty really is – and the level of honesty within ourselves – we will find all of ourselves wanting and failing at respecting all others. Many women (and men) have been on the receiving end of sexual harassment. All human beings have been on the receiving end of being shown little or no respect. All human beings have also been on the giving end of ‘little or no respect’ towards another individual or a group (and ourselves.)
For myself, I can think of only 1 man who, in His heart, mind, and soul respected each and every human alive – albeit all life. And while He may have chastised and warned people against those who said one thing and did another, when it came to His end, He recognized the respect all deserve as children of God in His words of equality and humility -“Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” In essence, saying “Father, they are deserving of forgiveness. They are deserving of mercy. They are deserving of the Love You have for them – even that Love through Me. They are deserving of consideration, of patience, of encouragement, of all You have to give, … and they are deserving of respect… even though they don’t know it or take it on for themselves to bestow it to others.” He saw then, and He sees today, all of us as His equals deserving all that God gave Him and all God has to give.
Every effort we make to change our own ‘lack of respect’ into ‘respecting’ moves us one step closer to creating a better world for all people. It could help if we remember His words, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do”, and take them on for ourselves to bring into the world towards others and to ourselves. In a world one day filled to the brim with our respect for one another, (and other qualities), then we will have Peace on Earth and Goodwill Towards All Men and Women (and all life).

Love is of the soul. The soul has both masculine and feminine. Both of these are capable of and regularly incarnate into a physical body. AND! because the soul benefits and grows from the enrichment of different experiences, the masculine and feminine can both incarnate into either the same or opposite gender bodies. We have such a diverse potential within this Earth to manifest and experience that we can create opposite gender experiences in order to develop greater understanding of the human experience.
Hence, why we create gay, lesbian and transgender experiences in our world. The diversity of experiences related to these can help souls learn. This doesn’t mean that being gay, lesbian or transgender will be forced upon a soul (unless karmic law is in effect). It means that each is a viable and useful incarnated experience. It also means that the feminine in a male body and the masculine in a female body is an available Earth option, should one wish to experience it.
Love is of the soul. We can experience love in opposite physical bodies than the gender aspect which manifests. Since love is of the soul, it is possible to love beyond the physical – to the soul. Those we’ve loved in a past life, can still be those we love in the current life. Still, freewill is active for both souls in such a reunion, and this does indeed give chance for either joyful or painful reunions as human beings.
Forgiving one’s enemy changes one’s enemy. Not changed in front of our eyes, but in front of time’s eyes, which is where we were changed, also, when we were forgiven. (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2017, Jodie Senkyrik)
