2019 is going to be a somewhat more difficult year for so many people on his planet, and I’m not going to hold back in what I write in this article. There are disasters and there are positives. Life, as we know it, will change, but life will also persevere in all locations. 2019 by itself will not be a painfully more difficult year for every one of the 7+ billion people, but everyone will be affected by several things throughout the year. It is one of the 2 remaining years which are moving us deeper into the darker, low vibration energy/manifestations. These low-vibration energy manifestations will be recognized by disasters both human-derived and natural. By “moving us deeper”, I mean the beginning of the years will appear and be experienced as being better than the end of the years, in many ways.
I will mention FIRST, that prayers and meditation for the goodwill for all people and the well-being for all life, are that which will strengthen the Spirit and Energy of the Family of Man and all life, if and when we’re willing to bring forth Light – through expressing Love, Kindness, Compassion, Cooperation, Encouragement, Mercy, Forgiveness, and Support, and more (flowing through ourselves) – and for all life on this planet – especially during this time. Prayers for all life will absolutely help all life. Absolutely – as in ‘absolute help’ – real help – to persevere through these coming times and experiences.
Humanity won’t easily see the difference between the two possible futures – with prayers vs. without prayers, (a few will), but changes happen when one’s heart is the source of prayers – for the goodwill and well-being of all people. Why for “the goodwill and well-being of all life”? Because this prayer will have the strongest impact on humanity, all of nature, and the future. The predictions I speak of here are drastic to some parts of the planet. They will affect, to greater or lesser degrees, all of the planet. While many people’s lives will be minimally impacted, many people’s lives will be greatly impacted. The news is already reporting regular disasters, both natural and man-made, which are affecting people in a wide variety of places – sometimes places which are surprising.
For Britain: The Brexit is considered a mess, and it will become an even bigger mess in the 1st 5 months of 2019. After that, many of the loudest voices will consider the act of screaming the loudest isn’t working for their side anymore and will then begin working on solutions. See efforts beginning April and May. I see another 13-16 months of work for things to reach a point of acceptance. The reason why efforts are not working out is because of the energy of so many of the British people not wanting Brexit. The consciousness of the people is a formidable energy force, and it can prevent events from happening – whether the events are positive or negative.

Worldwide – As one person put it, “The predictions that were made – are happening.” (This includes my own. Scroll down to see the right hand column Category list: Weather) During 2019, we will see more natural disasters which will affect millions of people. Weather related disasters are both caused by natural patterns and the effects of Climate Change/Global Warming. “Let those who have eyes to see, let them see. Let those who have ears to hear, let them hear. Let those who are blind, stay blind. Let those who are deaf, stay deaf.” These are famous words and referring to this time in history. Let there be no doubt here, weather is caused by human consciousness. Climate Change is being caused by humans. We will continue to have fights in the US about Climate Change, brought on by different people with different political agendas, rather than the science being questionable, which it is not.
The overall weather throughout the world will help bring greater flooding in the southern Asian nations, colder weather in Russia, erratic temperatures and erratic rainfall in Europe, and destructive drought and extreme heat without rain in the Midwest of the US.
In the US, more extreme temperatures will be experienced and the stamina of the people struggling with these effects will weaken due to growing tiredness and discouragement from the onslaught of damaging weather. The fires in California in 2018 are only a forerunner for the heat that will enter into the Rocky Mountains, and eventually potentially turning the Midwest into scorched land. The day is coming that the Midwest will see hotter temperatures than it has ever seen – drying up the land and making it unable or extremely difficult to grow crops. While not all of this will manifest in 2019, it will begin in 2019, and will eventually move towards that, on through the next 7 years with the very worst of it being 2025 before relief comes in the form of temporary better weather. [PRAYERS CAN CHANGE THIS!]
Europe’s problems with Climate Change will grow, as well. The weather will bring greater amounts of rain throughout most regions – causing more flooding in various areas. The winters will be colder, in general, through central Europe. In 2019, Europe will face these changes, but this pattern will become regular from now on. There will be no year that Europe will not continue with this scenario when comparing it to the past decades. Europe’s growing seasons will be affected, and it will take several years to adapt the agriculture industry to the changes in weather. The weather changes are here and will remain with the next few generations of people through this century. This will create greater yearly demands for energy during the winter months.
Asia, in 2019, will begin to see regular yearly massive weather systems which will do massive damage to distinct yet massive areas of the continent. We, in the US, will hear about some of this via reporting the news, but many of the people of Asia will be going through devastating weather. By many, I see mostly rural areas being affected long-term in Asia as opposed to urban areas, because cities tend to have collective systems and structures in place to recover from the weather related disasters quicker, while rural residents have less collective support and structure helping to recover. Mountainous regions, in general, will be very much affected – with many large mudslides related to more rain than normal, and news of these will be heard around the world – because some will be great in size.

With regards to natural disasters, the years 2019 and 2020 will have a greater than average share of natural disasters – volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, and typhoons. I consider these effects on humanity to be different than man-made or economic disasters, like recession (which is slowly beginning,) war, and erratic, non-stable economies.
We will enter into 2019 with open eyes, watching for disasters, and on the whole, they will continue happening in South America – where they already are happening, the Pacific Rim will have a mixture of earthquakes and volcanic activity, Southeast Asia will continue to experience earthquakes and Tsunamis, and finally, in 2019 several very large Typhoons will travel through the Pacific Ocean. I see fewer hurricanes in the Atlantic in 2019 only, and the larger ones (right now I’m seeing this) will not threaten the US much. I see two (1 larger and 1 smaller) storms which will come into the Southeastern states of the US – Florida, Georgian, Alabama, Kentucky, South Carolina: mostly rain affecting these states. Right now, what I’m seeing is that they are not as destructive as the last 2 years have been. While there will be concern, I don’t see the same amount of danger happening in these states.
There will be some natural disasters outside of these examples, but I’m not yet identifying their locations. I see small storms (compared to large hurricanes) come into or rather build within the Gulf of Mexico. One may develop into a tropical storm.
Every area of the planet and all people of the planet will be affected by Climate change and natural disasters. The smoke from fires, the ash from volcanoes, the mosquitoes from flooding, as well as drought causing some agriculture failures. These affect everyone – even those people and life not in the area of the destruction. People will adapt somewhat. Wildlife and ‘nature’ will not adapt in the same way and much damage will come. Extinctions will happen.
In 2019, Puerto Rico is not a target for another hurricane, but I do see storms which will bring much rain. The Caribbean areas will also have a year similar to the last 3 years. I see 3-4 storms. There is a chance they won’t develop into large hurricanes. HOWEVER, if any develop into hurricanes, I can see 1 grow to a category 2-3 while in that area. I’ve mentioned this possibility before, and I still see it going north of Puerto Rico. At this time, I still see 1 storm hitting Puerto Rico in 3 years, possibly in 2 years, but it won’t be equal to Maria in 2017. Even though it can be easy to dismiss the statement about praying, prayers can, will, and do truly help to change destructive weather. The more prayers and meditations for this purpose, the more change. The more Light we bring in, the more change happens. Whether believed or not, weather is a manifestation of human consciousness and it can be changed by human consciousness.

Around the world, even more advances will happen in medicine. In some parts of the world, these advances will reach people – Europe especially. In 2019, the health care industry in the US, will offer no solutions to the erratic state of health care in the US. Financial devastation will still happen to some people. Many will be looking towards Alternative Healing Methods in order to find hope and help. While Alternative Healing Methods are derided and criticized – and sought to be shut out of being used, because they are anecdotally helpful, they will continue to be suggested and noted via the Internet. The pharmaceutical corporations will continue to lobby against Alternative Healing Methods, and in 2019, we will see their efforts increase with much media and online statements intending to turn people away from Alternative Healing Methods and make them illegal. In the US, the pharmaceutical corporations will seek to spread this “war”. (It is an effort to eradicate use of Alternative Methods, so I use the term “war”.) They will try to further this agenda in Europe, Canada and some East Asian nations. Their efforts in Mexico and East Asian nations will not be successful because their influence cannot reach the different consciousnesses of the peoples. But, in the US, fear will be generated by the Pharma. Corps. and this will effect the consciousness in general.
Still, the Alternative Healing cottage industry and the presence of Alternative Methods information on the Internet will continue to be present. Anecdotal information – information people share of their own experiences with certain healing methods or ingredients – will continue to influence the trying of Alt. Healing Methods. The Pharmaceutical information against non-pharmaceutical treatments will be meant to cause fear, and dissuade people away from them. It will succeed in some measure. An individual’s own effort at studying and researching healing methods will be the strongest force against the fear-based information onslaught. The interesting result will be several things – more and more Americans will look to Canada as a source of Medical Treatments, those informed more thoroughly with Alternative Medicine will grow a stronger and more entrenched base of people seeking to further it, and over time the reputations of the Pharmaceutical Corporations will suffer from being recognized as fostering misinformation and fear. Many doctors will work to help bring truthful information to the public. The struggle with health care in the US will continue for many decades, yet. I don’t see medicare for all happening in this decade even though support for it will grow. I see some changes to who qualifies being changed in the next decade, though, but not until after 2026.
Tremendous medical research discoveries will happen in the next 8 years. The treatment of childhood diabetes will make great strides over the next 5 years and will see magnificent treatments come forth. For 2019, I’m seeing a little bit of advances in the treatment of Alzheimers. Some medications will slow it down. The effort to continue to raise prices of medicine treatments will continue, while the public push back will also continue. Pressure from the people can bring about better options.
With a change in elected officials, the ACA will continue, but there are still ways in which wrenches can still be thrown into the gears. There will be efforts in the House of R. to make some changes to make it better, but the path to passing such a bill in the Senate and the president signing it, is “uphill”. For the most part, there will not be any major changes to it in 2019.

In 2019, Cholera will begin to spread in a few areas of the planet, that are affected by natural disasters, including Asian nations and Cholera will increase somewhat over the next 7 years to come. There will be small outbreaks with other diseases in South American because of the massive rural destruction from weather related disasters PLUS diseases coming from (of all things), deforestation of the Amazon Rainforest. There will be new evolved/mutated diseases coming from the Rainforest itself. No amount of destruction of the Rainforest would stop it. The natural life in those particular regions of the Amazon Rainforest have adapted to the evolved/mutated diseases and humans not native to the regions will contract the new diseases.
China will be hit with outbreaks of diseases in particular areas, but we won’t hear about them here in the west. In general, they won’t threaten large numbers of people outside China. They have the ability to eventually handle these outbreaks, but many lives will be lost. In the west, the CDC will be strained from the work they will have over the next 7 years.
Ebola will not be eradicated, and will continue to be present in a few areas of Africa for years to come (with some of it moving north). Many other diseases will be faced because of the disasters which are coming. Dysentery will be one of those diseases coming from disasters.
The conflicts in the US over vaccinating children will continue for many years yet, because of the distrust of the US money driven health care system, – a system of treatments based on whether you have money to pay, rather than one based on care for the individual, distrust of the vaccine manufacturers, as well as a persistent distrust of the general medical profession’s attitude that doctors always know what’s right, and research which points to better protocols needing to be examined for use. (Somewhat related to this – The US has an extremely hard lesson to learn: learning that trusting money more than trusting the heart will lead to serious problems of all kinds – problems which can eventually end the existence of the US as we know it. This can contribute to the US changing its structure in the 23rd century with the US split into 3 or 4 different countries with separate governments.)
Meanwhile, I’m seeing several medical progress announcements being made in 2019, but I’m not yet able to identify which diseases or medical issues they will be announcing about. One major one will be this spring, with another announcement happening in July.

Spiritual Experiences and Spiritual Connections:
We will see more spiritual seeking in the latter part of 2019. “We will see more” refers to media attention and Internet information on individual experiences rather than great groups of people opening to spirituality. The true spiritual journey happens on the individual level, not on the group level. While this will NOT be a widespread movement, this will begin a process of slow, more often, reporting of individual stories that help to open individual people’s minds and thoughts to spiritual involvement in everyday life. Over the next 7 years, during these “some of the most difficult” times for humanity, there will be many other stories of spiritual experiences and connections which will spread throughout the communication methods (Internet, media, etc.)

2019 will start January with political hope for Democrats and those who elected them. The Republicans will be working to solidify their bases. Except for introductory announcements in January, around mid-Feb (13th?) the public will hear about Congressional plans – The Democrat’s plans for putting forth legislation and Congressional investigations, and Republican’s plans for fighting them all the way. Mid-Feb through March will begin the process of conflict. The conflict will be loud, and this wave of conflict will continue through into the summer. Meanwhile, other investigations will begin in the spring, building up through into the fall. President Trump will face political challenges, but not yet serious enough to threaten his presidency, until the Fall when serious threats and challenges are then appearing. Whether we are pro-Trump or anti-Trump, and while the questions will come up as to the future, I do see Donald Trump as the President still, at the end of 2019. Some will be happy about this, some will not.
The public will see a few more governmental positions change around mid-Jan & Feb (2019), early spring, then again at the end of summer. These will not be top positions, but a few (what I consider) “2nd tier” positions.
This is another year which will shift both political parties’ directions away from Trump in 2020. The Democrats will feel emboldened. The Republicans will begin to resign themselves to the inevitable – run someone else or lose to the Democrats. 2019 will have many candidates announce themselves as running for the US President in 2020. Republican candidates will begin to announce themselves throughout the Spring. Lindsay Graham will be one of them and Mitt Romney possibly. Three other Republican Senators will also announce they will run. I see eventually about 4-5 Republicans seriously running to replace President Trump. I see a slew of Democrats – 14-15 that will announce their candidacy. Senators and House Representatives, and three women candidates announcing. I do NOT see Hillary Clinton running again although the question will be coming up for her and her supporters. I will not state in this article what I see as potential outcomes at this time. I have stated in other public readings what I see for 2020’s elections.
I see many people considering there to be very serious information and testimony which has yet to be made public in the reports from those investigations happening. They consider the allegations to be valid and serious. The investigations will not be considered frivolous. The information revealed will shift Republican support to having a new 2020 candidate. However, the Republican Party will have two factions – 1 faction for Trump continuing to be the 2020 candidate, mostly from his base, and 1 faction for a new candidate, mostly from the Republicans in Congress.
I’ve already mentioned much about what I see regarding the person who will be our next President. I have mentioned in several places that Donald Trump will be a 1-term president. I also had mentioned that if Hillary Clinton had won, she also would have been a 1-term president.
In 2019, little progress beyond saying nice words, will happen between China and the US. Tariffs will continue. The hidden reason and use for them by both sides is as a method of punishment. In 2019, the current relationship the US has with North Korea won’t get better, but it won’t get much worse, either. There will be posturing and “surface” challenging words, but this is more for show on both sides.
Most information coming forth regarding the Russian government will be about how the Russian government is involved with political situations and arenas in the nations surrounding Russia. The Russian government will prove to be very active in world politics, involving themselves in ways on the world front. This is an effort to control more countries, as the Soviet Union did. Meanwhile, the Russian people are facing entering into more difficult times for them, with 2019 the beginning of more difficult economic times in the years ahead. While the Russian people are used to hard times, in general, the Climate Change, in the next 6 years for them will bring disasters in Russia which no one could have imagined, and they will not easily be ready for. Fortunately, these won’t be in every year. Prayers are needed for the people of Russia and of Asia.
In 2019, the US and Canada relationship will be strained again by President Trump’s criticism. I see the Canadian government more acting to stay quiet and not contribute to more conflict – staying back mostly from engaging in return criticism.
In 2019, immigration policy problems will continue, and April/May will see a rise in media attention surrounding legal proceedings. However, attention to this will diminish as we move into Summer. As summer ends, then all media will be focused on what comes out of the investigations on through the end of 2019. I do see construction begin on a border wall, but then I see it abandoned – not from lack of money, but from lack of political will/support. If things continue as I see now, I do not see a border wall being completed.
I see more US businesses individually planning actions for addressing Climate Change, much in line with the Paris Agreement. I also see the US returning to the Paris Agreement after the new president is in office in 2021. (Not in 2019, though). Little change will happen in 2019 regarding the US place in the Paris Agreement. 2019 will also be another year where a huge amount of political news will take center stage.

The US Economy:
In the Spring, 2019, and some after then, because of the greater political upheavals, the Stock Markets are going to react with erratic spikes, both up and down. This intermittent spiking will continue through at different times of the year – end of March to April, midsummer, 1st half of October. I don’t see it being as bad as we’ve seen recently (Dec, 2018), but it will happen too often for people to feel confidence. This Wall Street instability will influence the larger corporations to pull back on risk-taking. There will be mostly a desire to “play it safe” and not expand. Small businesses, in general, won’t immediately feel a drop in business, but over time in 2019, the slow down will start to be felt. Recessions are coming, but 2019 will only show some unmistakable evidence of this during the 2nd half of the year. When we move into the 2020s, we will be entering into a time of several years that a recession will develop, ultimately to 2023/2024.

I see more “grass roots” efforts to move away from fossil fuel derived energy. This will be done by smaller energy companies rather than large nation-wide efforts. I see alternative energy businesses continue to do well. Consider these to invest in. Whether popular or not, electric cars are the future. Whether electric cars are selling right now or not, electric cars are the future. Innovations in the next few decades will bring this about.
Problems in the Middle East will escalate. Watch for this during May, June and July.
While not readily known, the Pope’s health will keep him home. If he chooses to travel for humanitarian meetings and causes, his health will take a downturn and it won’t remain hidden from the public.
In 2019, Facebook will run into more trouble with more announcements of customer information being “allowed” to go to outside interests. Watch for this at the beginning of the summer.
In 2019, as I mentioned in many prediction pages before, I still see local involvement and community involvement being the strongest and most productive place for efforts where people can help each other, as opposed to Federal efforts. It will be local connections and local communities where the real work gets done to help people’s lives.
The reason that psychics are announcing what we’re seeing for the future is because we are facing some of the worst of the difficulties – economic and natural disasters – that people of Earth are going to go through from 2019-2026. We will slooooooowwwwwllllyyyyyy begin to come out of the difficult times in 2026-2027 to the mid-2030s and afterwards. Here at the beginning of 2019, we have not seen the worst of it.
There will NOT be a planetary breakdown in society and nations. This will not be what happens. Societies around the world did not breakdown during the Great Depression or during WW2, but during WW2, in some unique places (not all places) in the Earth, because of unique circumstances and unique politics in certain places, living individual and community-based lives became harmful and deadly for those unique places.
We can have a positive perspective of these times if we base that positive perspective on an attitude of fortitude, determination, helpful cooperation, friendship, and brotherhood. We will see many positive local community endeavors helping people. We are a resilient species, and we’ve been through equally difficult times in our history, coming out the other end with greater understanding and higher levels of strength and ability to forge new ways into the future.

Questions, Comments and Additions
Added January 6, 2019
- In 2020, a change to the Presidency is possible, and could grow more probable as 2020 progresses. If Donald Trump is caused to leave office early, or removed from being active, Mike Pence takes over as possibly “Vice-President as Acting-President”. He would make full use of the opportunity. Some would be happy about this, some would not.
- “Can you elaborate more on the statement, “Problems in the Middle East will escalate. Watch for this during May, June and July.”? … Thank you.” D.M.
I’m seeing many more problems and increasing heated verbal battles regarding Saudi Arabia. This will be like a pot boiling over. Increasing conflict will continue to rise with the worst beginning around this spring. There may be less media information, but some of the backlash within and with S. A. will be hidden from the outside world. Some of the push back actions from the S. A. government will be hidden from the public.
- “I finished reading your 2019 predictions. In them you mention that you’ve discussed the results of the 2020 elections in other postings, but I don’t recall seeing this information, except in your reading shortly after the 2016 elections. Could you elaborate on what you see for the 2020 presidential elections? Thanks!” L.
Yes, I go into some detail in the audio file of the 2016 elections reading. There is more information there, so I’m just going to refer you to that, right now. You can also check out the right hand column section of “Categories” where I list the “Presidency/Politics” category. I’ll go into detail on the 2020 elections in the 2020 predictions. I will say that we’ll see the campaigning start ramping up this spring and right before summer arrives. We’ll then see the field of Democratic candidates.
- “What will happen to the Kurds?” E. B.
The Kurds, as well as many other groups of people around the world, will continue to suffer from the actions of others and other governments. The late spring and early summer months will be especially difficult times for the Kurds, specifically. Their lives are another example of people who need help from those who are willing to help. We have seen many human examples of mass cultural suffering and sorrow throughout the 20th century and now in the 21st. Pray for the Kurds, also, because all prayers that go out for them will help these people in some way.
- (Added Feb 4, 2019) Now, I’ve read your psychic predictions for 2019 with high interest. You mention “Southeast Asia will continue to experience earthquakes and Tsunamis, and finally, in 2019 several very large Typhoons will travel through the Pacific Ocean”. In this context, as I’m living at the outskirts of Tokyo, what can you see in particular for Japan? Many thanks in advance! L.P.
As of today, in 2019, I do see the southern half of Japan most affected by storms, but not taking a direct hit from any Typhoon. However, this can change, as I see potential (potential only) for a small but major storm which could move across Japan. This would be between April and June. I do see that the affect on the southern half of Japan will be enough to be very alert to dangers. The main force of the storms will go into China and more southerly. In the last 5 months of 2019, I see a possible 3 typhoon/storms for the Pacific Ocean, but the path being south of Japan (with 1 possibly going north of Japan.) The southerly path puts the Philippines in danger with a real possibility of taking another direct hit.
“We live each day with the choice to pray, to love, to show mercy and compassion towards others for their own sake, knowing inside our very soul that these things are worthwhile, and are needed in a weary, weary world in order to bring that world out of the manifestation of those destructive acts which we created lifetimes ago, yet haven’t yet healed.
We can heal [destructive] events like the one in Las Vegas, before it happens. We have already done so much healing. Events destined to manifest, have been dissolved and healed, [never to happen]. We need only keep on keeping on with this work.” (Excerpt from “Las Vegas Horror”)
8. What is Russia’s near to medium term future? … They too are asserting themselves, but their demographics don’t support it over the long term. D.M.
First, put this in the context of this physical Earth plane being a school of spirituality.
Then, as odd as it may be to say this, they struggle also with the forces that are in play – being human and subject to human issues, as well as spiritual forces. These human and spiritual forces are the Will of the People. Even though Russia has the government that it is known for in today’s world, the Will of the People (souls) is still a strong force. Do not make the mistake of thinking that the Russian people/souls are like Americans in their way of thinking and behaving. They do have a different collective consciousness and so their future as a nation and the past as a nation go along the lines of THEIR (Russian) collective consciousness and not OUR (U.S.) collective consciousness. And I am NOT referring to citizenry ideals, but rather soul ideals when I refer to “collective consciousness”. Individually, as souls, they have many different feelings and thoughts, some like Americans, but the collective force of their souls is what is paramount and thus more important.
Yes, they have conflict and struggle with themselves within – person with him/herself, citizens against citizens, citizens struggling with the government, citizens who accept the government the way it is – as much as outside themselves. All of us struggle with ourselves internally, and that internal conflict then shows itself in our conflict with what is external to us.
To say what their specific future is would simply read like any other nation. Don’t all nations, (even Canada), have these same patterns in consciousness of the people, and therefore the same patterns represented by different groups of citizens? For this reason, at the same time, it is possible to say that the people, and government representatives are no different than the people and representatives of the UK, the US, or any other area of the planet.
People are still people. (Not really profound, but true none the less.) While their own unique government has it’s own characteristics and traits and problems, the people face many of the same internal issues which we all face all over the world. We all have similar desires – to have a home, raise children, put clothes on their backs and food on the table, etc. Their future has very little difference from anyone else’s future. The issues of the past are the issues of the present and future. While this may not answer your question distinctly, it is still an accurate description of their future.
As a political force, they are known to work more behind the scenes, but then how is that different from so many other governments? There is not enough of a difference between the past, present and near future to mention anything specific. In their spiritual growth as a people, they have the opportunity to seek to call out to God… as we all do. As time progresses for Russia, the prayers of a few will save many. The prayers of many will save even more. Prayer changes things. Those who are prayed for will have God’s energy and spirit in their energy fields than those not prayed for. As the Russian people continue to pray, so will their nation have ever more of God’s presence, which does lead to change.
The fact that we are all human beings on the planet does mean very sincerely, that we’re going to be having similar feelings, similar desires and similar sufferings. Yet, as Americans, we cannot say “Everyone wants to be an American.” It simply isn’t true. Souls all over the world, are born where their evolutionary path is best for them. People/souls are where they want to be, and like trees planted where they are, the lesson becomes NOT “Where do I need to go to grow best?” BUT rather “How can I grow best in the place that I am?”
Look at Russia’s issues today and you’ll see the same issues on into the next decade. The timeline I’ve spoken of here – the most difficult times to 2026, then slowly start pulling ourselves out of the most difficult times as we decide to cooperate and work on our collective problems collectively, and this leading back to climbing out of the hole we seem to be in by 2038 – is the same timeline for Russia and all other nations and peoples on the planet.
9. Jodie, please correct me if I am wrong on this, ok? It seems to me like a huge impediment to the world is the US’s continuing militarism. President Harding famously said that “The business of America is business.” It seems to me now that the business of China is business, but the business of America is war. What do you see happening over the next 20-50 years or more?
I will address this more in the future. Regrettably, I would not be able to do it justice here at this time.
10. I am seriously looking at Islam as a way of life, not just because I am moving (once more) to an Islamic country. How will my family and people here in Charlotte who know me react to this once I inform them? I feel drawn towards it. It started back in the early 1980’s when I lived there. How will my life change as a result of that choice? It is a big choice. All choices bring about consequences but big choices like that one can bring about big consequences, positive and negative, even neutral.
Every religion that teaches there is One God – (what I extrapolate as ‘One Infinite Consciousness with Infinite Possibilities and Infinite Capacity’) is worth studying and integrating into what we believe – every one. The choices we make with walking our spiritual path, – what beliefs to hold to, or practice, what beliefs to gather from other religions, what spiritual beliefs we develop through our own efforts – in other words, whether an organized, established belief system, or an eclectic smorgasbord of personal beliefs – are all valid and worthy of being studied. Not because we should practice all religions, but so we understand others and in turn, ourselves.
But, remember, first and foremost: The most important thing is not what religious beliefs we hold to, but rather how we use our religious beliefs to motivate us to behave in relation to our fellow human beings. Both good and bad choices can be made in every religion or belief system (or paradigms, philosophies, scientific structures or ways of thinking) in which we use to motivate us to behave certain ways towards and in relation to other human beings.
To change a little bit what Edgar Cayce said about people, namely his words of “There is good in the worst of us, and there is bad in the best of us” (E.C.), I would add, there is good in the worst of religions and there is bad in the best of religions. – WHY IS THIS TRUE? Because, they’re made up of PEOPLE! and it is the people who take on the beliefs and manifest behaviors. Again, it is Edgar’s words above – and I’ll add, every organization that people are members of (or adhere to,) is only a reflection of the people who are this organizations’ members (or adhere to it.) No system of thought or belief can be more than the people who make up its rolls. However, all systems of thought and belief have the potential for growing into what the “Spiritual Teachers” teach, though.
My own recommendation to people is to study them all and choose which rituals, precepts, and practices fit you. I recommend this, because while I encourage the study of all religions, I make the suggestion that there is no need to strictly adhere to only one religious belief system when much of the others have meaning for anyone, as well. One can gain much by practicing all of a person’s interested religions or aspects of religions more as an integration of the available spiritual and religious belief systems. It is not the “adhering” to one religious belief system that accomplishes spiritual growth. Remember also, “mankind and mankind’s spiritual evolution was not made for religions and systems of thought. These religions and system of thought were made for mankind’s evolution.”
In this “adding to” that I mention above, the understanding and knowledge of many religions to our mind and world view, we can slowly begin to open our eyes to a greater depth of how each religion offers the very same principles and teachings as other religions. A deeper understanding of each can come forth recognizing that the same message is included among all – that we are all the children of One God. Therefore, there is unity in the family of religions on this Earth – and that is what all the religions are – a family proclaiming a Father/Mother God at the Center.
Get to know the whole of the family and you’ll be able to see what each family member can add to the whole, rather than just one member of the family and only knowing that one member. This can bring forth then a vision of the existence of the greater Family of Man. What I suggest is embrace/integrate more, and segregate less.
All the special teachings of each religion (and even non-religions) – put together – can provide a closer Earthly comprehensive understanding of God. No single religion can contain all there is to learn about God…… or Christ…… or Buddha …. or Krishna ….. or Mohammad…. or Elijah, … or Zarathustra, … or … etc. Remember, it is the ***Infinite*** Consciousness of God which contains all the religions within this Earth. Yet, even all the religions put together are not enough to give complete insight into the Infinite Consciousness of God. Put another way, only God has a complete understanding of God.
A good metaphor for this is comparing the Earth to the entire Universe. Do we have everything in the Universe here on Earth? Does living on the Earth give us a complete view and comprehension of all things in the Universe? Can we say that we completely understand life in the Universe and all it has to offer in our education, if we haven’t even completely understood life here on Earth? See what I mean? This is our collection of religions as compared to the Infinite Consciousness of God. What we don’t know about God fills an entire Universe (or more.)
Christ said, “All things that come into being, come through Me.” He also said, “Before Abraham was, I AM.” This is NOT saying Christianity is the best or should be followed or anything of the sort. This is NOT saying that Jesus, during His life known as Jesus, only brought forth Truth during the life that we know about, when known as Jesus. Who here thinks He is limited by only the life we currently know as Jesus?
This is saying, by any name, that the Consciousness of God which we also call Christ, Emmanuel, or The Son of Man, has many names and many presentations and many languages and many paths and many manifestations through many human generations and lifetimes and many entrances into the Earth during humanity’s existence, for all the many different children and life forms of the Infinite Consciousness of God. This includes in relation to God’s Children that don’t reside on the Earth or in the physical Universe. This also includes those spirits evolving in forms which human beings don’t recognize or acknowledge. Teachings exist in the Universe, even, which we don’t know about here in the Earth.
The reason we have so many religions is because we are so diverse in our individual consciousnesses, and like the colors in the rainbow, “Allah loves variety.” [A movie quote reference.] Infinite Creativity can create all possibilities, all languages, all ways of living, all ways of believing, all dimensions, all ways of everything – and bring all life to Infinite Oneness with God using all the Infinite paths that exist.
There is a family of religions because we are a Family of Man. All religions are united in One God, because all life is united in One God. Finally, because all life is united in God, and the diversity of consciousness being manifested as life forms is potentially Infinite, (as I say above) religions on the Earth were/are created to serve the spiritual evolutionary paths which lead to awareness of our own connection and oneness with that which is Infinite in Consciousness – our own Higher Self. This family of religions is meant to and created to serve the Family of Man.
We are One with God, which means we are Infinite in Consciousness, but to be aware of Infinity, eventually, we must grow into our awareness. (This might not be done fully while existing as human beings.) We have Infinite time in which to do this, and we need not reject any family member in order to add more family members.
Finally, for your personal situation, the fear of rejection of personal shared religious beliefs, which can be triggered through a shift in religious beliefs like you’re mentioning, can contribute to a fear of rejection of the close emotional ties, connections and relationships with those with whom the religious beliefs were shared. This fear comes from people having seen emotional ties painfully disconnected in human experience before and knowing it can happen, so therefore fear of it comes, thinking it will happen again.
To prove there are no reasons to fear disconnection of the emotional ties, means one must prove that the emotional ties won’t disconnect. That can only be demonstrated through our actions and behaviors of not-disconnecting, as well as pro-active behaviors making sure the connections stay in place. No amount of words without actions will calm fears.
Religion and spiritual beliefs are personal and unique to each individual. In essence, it is another language of understanding used to relate to each other. Religion is a shared “language” of spiritual understanding – helping us to know what each other means when speaking of our spirituality. However, each person’s language is still in its totality, unique to themselves, and there will be some misunderstandings, because even though our language is similar to the person sitting next to us, it is not 100% exact to anyone’s language.
For this reason also, I recommend the expansion of beliefs to include and integrate other religions rather than a trading of beliefs going from one complete religion to a different complete religion. With this comes the learning of new “languages” rather than trading one language for another. With this expansion, also comes the making of the spiritual path into “one’s own path” unique in it’s own way, put together in it’s own way, and designed specifically by and for the person who does the choosing.
God does not care which spiritual path or which religion leads one to God. God does care that we love God above all else, and love our neighbor as our self. No one ever has said, “God is religion.” However, over and over again, multitudes have said, “God is Love.”
11. Back to my new teaching job in Kuwait: how do you see me being of service to others?
You, also, have the opportunity to teach “how a seeking human lives a life”. We are not just a boxed in robot meant to serve through an occupation, but rather a comprehensive individual consciousness – life being – who by our efforts to learn and grow in the different ways of searching for Oneness with all, we demonstrate to those who observe us – how to learn and grow and practice in the different ways of searching for Oneness with all.
On a smaller scale, you, also have the opportunity to serve by being kind, by being patient, by being helpful, by being understanding and forgiving, by showing mercy, by showing compassion, (to ourselves as well as to others), by listening, by having courage, by laughing and having a sense of humor, by listening within to the Still, Small Voice of God who resides inside our heart, and yes, by experiencing long-suffering and what long-suffering means. By trying, by keeping on keeping on, by doing the best we can with what we have. By asking questions and seeking the best answers we can grasp in the moment. By living one day at a time, but seeking wisdom, by trying, by being supportive to those who struggle, by calling on (remembering) God as much as we can, and by striving to be true to ourselves, and keeping an open heart and open mind. How we live our life is what we teach, even to those we don’t know are observing and learning from us. This is service, because this is Love.
So, you (and all of us) have one way to be of service – Love. You (and all of us) have infinite ways to manifest this love.
12. All of us have our talents which are really meant for serving one’s fellow beings. How do you see me best serving others whether it is at the school, the community, or even the world at large?
The very foundation of this answer is one that you already know in your heart, and which will not be defined by your mind. It is not an aspect of life that is found outside of us, but rather within us. It will always be this way – and always will be a challenge for us when we are faced with this question throughout all the different environments of life – always being the challenge which is one that exists within us – and only is then reflected/manifested in the external environment of which we find ourselves a part.
How to best serve: Love and all the ways we can create to manifest love, thus making it real in our everyday life. It is love that brought us into existence. It is love that brought all things into existence. It is love that helps us to individually get to know ourselves – and find it within ourselves to forgive ourselves and others, to show mercy to ourselves and others, to have compassion for ourselves and others, to let go of judgement of ourselves and others, to be patient with ourselves and others, and on and on.
When we find the willingness to do this – towards ourselves as well as others – we are then opening ourselves to the awareness of the Infinite Love and the Consciousness of Infinite Love that exists with our very hearts at all times.
Offer service to that which is in one’s own lap to offer service to. Remember, we need not travel the world to find what is in one’s own lap.
13. I am now convinced that I still have the great potential for being materially very well off in this incarnation. However, I am even more convinced that I will gain far more joy and purpose in my life by being of service. I feel deeply and clearly now as I type this (probably due to fasting) that this particular incarnation is meant to be more of service.
I will entitle this answer as “The Wise Use of Money“
Yes, this is the challenge for each of us individuals – to see the inner gain as the real gold and to recognize money as one tool of many. Money, material wealth, is like a hammer. How much money we amass is like how many hammers we can amass. But, how many hammers can we use at once? How many hands do we have? If we only have ourselves, then we have 2 hands, but if we share it with many others, we can have millions of hands. Do we hold on to these millions of hammers selfishly for our self, or do we strive to share what we have unselfishly with others?
Money is a tool, just like hammer and nails, building materials, wood, metal, etc. It can be used to build. Used through us by the Inner Spirit, it can do many things, but of itself, it can do nothing. Just like a human being. When we take the hammer in our hand and put it to use, that is when we build something. In essence and in truth, we are the tool, we are the hammer and nails and we are the money- the currency that God uses.
And at the same time, when has amassing wealth, by itself, ever been what leads us to go within on our inner journey to know God? When have we ever needed money to enter within and commune with God in the silence of our own inner being – in prayer and meditation? When has money, of itself, ever been required to love God above all else or love your neighbor as yourself. Yet still, neither does it need to get in the way of doing all this (both sides of the coin can be seen in the last sentences if we look closely.)
Both, money and the human heart/mind is like the water at the Canaan wedding. When these are poured forth in the service of others, they become worth so much more. Money only has value when it is put to use. The human heart/mind has value for others when we pour forth the fruits of the spirit. The water in the urns at the Canaan wedding, only became wine when it was poured forth.
We all imagine that we can accomplish great things with great amounts of money, but the great things we think we’ll accomplish tend to be all external world things – and not the internal world things. It is therefore important to always remember that we won’t take any external world things with us when we move on from this world, however, … of the internal world within us – we will take everything which we have gained or become.
Money is a material tool, and like water, it accomplishes material things, but only when it flows with us and through us and keeps on moving. It is like a river that must move or it becomes stagnate. Hence, why so many in the world are involved with making and spending it – everyone, for the most part. It serves as a means for all souls to be involved with the world we live in. The only one who doesn’t use money is the person who has closed themselves off from the entire world – like the person on a deserted island by themselves. The use of money has served to help us stay connected to society and the world. We must go out into the world to obtain some. We must involve ourselves with other people. We must connect with others to obtain our material needs.
We wish we had more, because we are challenged to ride the eddies, the white waters, and currents of the river of life – and we have to work and be challenged to navigate this river of life. We get tired and weary of the river of life – but this weariness lesson also is an internal struggle/challenge in itself, isn’t it – our attitudes and judgements towards what we find on the river of life is also a spiritual exercise in play. In turn, as we connect with others on this river, we are able to strengthen our presence in the river, making the journey better capable of providing for us and others. It is this uniting with others that is even one more spiritual lesson, isn’t it.
You may pursue more material gains. While money doesn’t automatically come into your life for the purpose of tripping you up spiritually, the potential is there for imbalance of attitudes towards money and thus tripping up – falling flat on one’s face.
In the doing so – the pursuing of work and payment – do so with a real purpose – and watch out for those imagined purposes. Seek wisdom in life and all life offers. Seek wisdom in gaining of money and the using of it. Humanity has never had a billionaire as a real spiritual leader – as a teacher of humility. More often, we have them as examples of stumbling, but not as spiritual examples. Still, in our observance of those with money, we tend to think, “if we had that money, we would do a lot better job of handling it.” Of course, that is what that other soul said, too. AND God will give us that chance, if we so choose it, but … what will it serve us if we lose our soul during that chance. If it is our egotism that says “I would do a better job of handling lots of money”, that same egotism will be present when we are in that position.
God, in His Infinite Mercy, spares most of us the path of being a billionaire or millionaires. Still, it is an experience where we tend to run straight towards, though – thinking that our suffering and struggle would be less, if we had so much money. But, in having the amount of money in our life that we currently have – as an average person – are we now extending all the love that we have in our hearts to the people in our lives? Are we now forgiving all those in our minds and hearts because of money? Are we now showing mercy, unselfishness, understanding, tolerance and compassion to all the people that we come across – only because of money? Are we extending our support and help when we can, only because of money? No, it’s because of what is in our hearts.
It is all in the consciousness of the person – in the heart of the person, and in the fears or courage of the person. If we’re not helping with the current monies that we do have in our life, how would having more money change our attitudes and our feelings?
It is this path that Jesus was referring to when He said, “What does it benefit us to gain all [the material gains] that we want, but lose our soul in the process.”
Money is not selfishness of itself, nor are we meant to learn to condemn it or be afraid of it – not at all. It is a hammer and nails, tools, with real purpose, meant to serve us to help us be a part of this Earth community. As we gain understanding of this – how to use the hammer and nails we have while building our hearts and minds, we are given more to hammer with. God does not overwhelm us with more than we can handle – that includes material wealth. We are not given 3 hammers when we only are capable of using 2 hands. We may be given 3 hammers if it is already in our consciousness and history to share what we have with others. If we seek and learn wisdom, part of our classroom will also be to use the money in wise ways.
Finally, the millions of dollars in these large corporations don’t only go to a few people, but these people then hire other people, giving them money for their services, they then hire others, they then hire others, and on and on. Each of the places are employers who provide jobs to people who then help establish and continue with other jobs. This is the story that Jesus told of the 4 servants.
14. Will fasting bring a huge benefit to my health? How much? In Islam, Muslims fast for the month of Ramadan but that really means just from sunrise to sunset. Maybe one week of out each month?
When done appropriately and wisely, fasting can bring benefits to physical health and the spiritual journey.
But, not fasting can also bring benefits to physical health and the spiritual journey. The issue and question is not whether fasting brings benefits or not, but rather, where is the heart and mind in the journey of spiritual learning. One saying that is mentioned in spiritual teachings is, “It is not what goes into the mouth that causes mistakes [or is kept from going into the mouth]. It is what comes out of the mouth [the words we say to others].” Look at the heart and mind in the dedication to the spiritual path and all that the spiritual path calls us to do inwardly. This is because fasting of itself can do nothing, but rather it is what is in a person’s heart and mind that takes our religious practices and turns them into true purposeful acts of dedication.
With that said, fasting can support a person’s spiritual practice and is a helpful health related activity for you and many people, in general. For you, it can enhance the spiritual journey you are on, but remember, by itself, it can do nothing to help the spiritual journey, but with God, all things can help the spiritual journey. Do so with wisdom, and seek a deeper understanding rather than acting by rote without understanding.
This means that even if we spent all our life doing physical fasting, but still spent all our life not working on fasting of the heart and mind – the letting go of judgment, condemnation, blame, guilt, shame, prejudices, criticisms, hatred, fears, impatience, etc – then we haven’t accomplished anything.
Finally, all three parts of us are connected – spirit, mind and body. What affects one affects the other two, also. This also is relevant when the body is involved in our spiritual practices.
If you’re seeking a detailed description of what food fasting can do for you, then I would also offer that food fasting is not the #1 thing that God asks of us for our spiritual path – “The Father does not seek sacrifice from us, but rather mercy.” So, while you practice food fasting, (which I see can be some health benefits, as will other health activities) also take the deeper step and fast from the negative things of the heart and mind, as well.
For you personally, I can see food-fasting for about 4 days to be the optimum physically – a 5th day if you feel up to it.
15. What do you see for the future in a country like Kuwait? It is an oil producer but eventually they will need to diversify away from that. There is only so much accessible petroleum in the ground and their country is small.
Yes, that is a good assessment of the decades ahead for Kuwait. They will provide oil for the world for about the next half century before their economy begins to suffer. Open minds with foresight can help them to steer into the future, leading them to expand on opportunities and draw upon their own inner, national resources – which includes people and what people offer. (I say the next half century, because other energies will come forth, but petroleum will not become useless. Kuwait’s exporting will diminish some, but they will continue to export at levels which will still contribute to their economy.)
16. North Korea…..what is their future? That is all I can think of for now. As always, I truly appreciate your answers!!!
This nation will have a slow evolution as compared to much of the rest of the planet, but it is their own rate of evolution none-the-less. As the 2020’s close, going into the 2030’s, then is when they will open up noticeably but slowly to outside opportunities reaching out to friendly nations to help them to enter into more of a world arena. This will be a slow process, but the NK of the end of this century will be different than the one at the beginning of this century – as all nations are.
But, all nations have their own serious problems to work on. No nation has all the answers and no nation stands out above all others as being the best. Each nation is different and cannot really be compared to any other, although this has never stopped anyone from comparing.
Do not be discouraged about the stories of people in government being involved with intrigues and all the back-room deals, back-stabbing, international conflicts and such that causes great fear to grip people. These exact same things have been happening on this planet coming from human involvement for over 20,000 years and even in greater ways than today. And those of us human beings who choose to bring about the destructive parts and harmful parts always do find ourselves, as souls, coming face to face with the acts which we inflict on others. NO SOUL ever escapes the responsibility connected to the return of the pain and suffering we created for others. NEVER. But, sometimes, it does take many lifetimes to come full circle in order to heal these created experiences for others, learn from our mistakes, put things back together, clean up the mess we make, and find that which we’ve lost. And remember, all that happens comes from the hearts and minds of individual people joining with other like-minded and like-hearted people. No institution of itself can do anything. It is the people who are involved inside the “institutions”.
So, from a spiritual point of view, this Earth plane of existence is a school of spirituality. We will face our own acts with the purpose of cleaning up the mess we make or have made in a past life, learning from our mistakes and growing beyond them. Even the darkened souls of WW2, will one day, as souls, come into a lifetime where they will reverse the injuries they created, and lead people back to healing and light. There are many famous people who’s name you would recognize, who have found their way back onto their better paths – working to bring healing this life instead of the harm which they did in their pastlives. I will not mention names.
And with that, I end this particular set of questions, because in truth whole books could be written with these questions.
Thank you to everyone who sends in questions. I hope this offers you much. Meditate on the answers and even more will come.
Predictions for the United States
In the days immediately after the swearing in ceremony, I see a stepping up of assaults against the North Dakota Standing Rock protesters. It will last for at least 3 weeks, possibly 5 or more, before those in authority step back to examine other strategies. Many will seek ways to circumvent the decision by the Corp of Engineers and go ahead with completion of the pipeline.
For the year of 2017, I see the US economy starting off well in the winter and spring months with only a few “not too worrisome” economic ups and downs happening until the summer of 2017. The general public will not be aware of much of this. As the US exits summer, greater economic ups and downs will happen. The economic road in the last few months of 2017 will become rocky indeed. By the end of 2017, many will be worried because of economic instability starting to be clear and visible to more than just a few. The year will end with a general feeling of “getting a little beat up.”
Gasoline prices at the pump will slowly begin to climb at the beginning of the year, but will level off through the spring. By mid-Summer, I see a slight drop before the beginning of Fall when I see gas prices begin to rise again. I’m seeing a range from $2.40-$2.80/gallon coming back in 2017, although it’s fluctuation could still be all over the place. What I definitely see is it not staying at the level it is now. Gasoline prices are going up.
Alternative energies in the US, will not get a lot of government support, and so these companies will call on the people of the US to help the industries grow. This call from those people in the industry will help generate some popular support, but the general population are also going to be dealing with the beginning of having less spending power. Those industry leaders who call for finding ways to streamline or lower the costs for people will keep a steady business pace. Some areas of R&D will slow down because of budget cuts.
2017 will see a continuing growth of personal involvement in grass-roots efforts and activism. More people will seek ways to become more active in influencing directions the country goes.
For the US, during 2017, I see the potential for some mostly small earthquake activity in Arkansas, related to the fracking in Oklahoma.
The topic of extraterrestrial activity will get attention in the central to Midwest states.
A town in western Florida will have a wonderful event happen. Somewhere around Quincy, FL area. I don’t see what it is, but it will make them delighted and happy.
2017 is not the year that affordable health care coverage in the US will be made unavailable for many people. That’s 2018.
In general, in the US, we will see more extreme weather events in 2017. Most of it will be during January thru May.
The Pope will travel more in Europe in 2017. I also see him making a trip to South America and a potential trip into central Africa. His message will be consistent with his overall message so far. He is seeking to give hope to people.
In 2017, there will be little progress for peace in the Middle East. Some cease fire agreements will happen, but eventually they will be broken.
In general, India’s economy will stay at the level it is now. I don’t see much growth, if at all. It won’t get worse, though. India will be waiting to see how other countries go with regards to the new presidency in the US, so they won’t be taking risks in their economic progress. Ideally, India would do better not waiting to see how the US goes, but step forward to take a lead in economic directions. This next 50 years is India’s half-century and India has the potential to become a stronger leader than it currently is in the world’s economy. However, the poverty in India will continue to be a very big problem for people for decades to come. I’m not seeing progress for the general health care conditions. But, I do see progress in the decades ahead in the area of education – especially in the 2020’s.
Minor progress will be made in the field of archaeology around the world. I don’t see any significant discoveries in 2017. However, there will be further understanding and expansion of those discoveries already made. Archaeological discoveries in Egypt will not progress that much, or as much as many want.
China’s economy will continue to grow through the 1st half of the year. It will become rocky during the 2nd half of the year making Chinese government officials nervous. The Chinese economy in the 2nd half won’t be bad, but it won’t perform as many hoped it would.
In 2017, Japan’s economy will continue to be stable and a good place to invest.
2017 is not the year of direct dangerous activity from Russia.
Canada will be a productive nation in 2017. I see much good energy and good progress for Canada in 2017.
2017 will be another difficult year for Great Britain. There will be more governmental upheaval (around April-July) which will cause the country to “stumble” some. In time, it will stand back up, but it will take more than just 2017.
Australia will have fires to deal with in 2017, with at least one that is massive in size. The economy in Australia will be strong and stable throughout the year, but I don’t see much growth. However, I don’t see it going down unless its a very small amount – still strong though.
More to come
The argument has been made that “If extraterrestrials existed, they would let themselves be known”. While this argument can be popular among many, it lacks an understanding of the factors involved and therefore doesn’t give insight into the reason why they don’t. In turn, this argument usually seeks to dismiss any discussion or anyone who looks to go beyond the box of one’s beliefs.
Look at the Earth today, with the current number of nations and the different types of governments. As a whole, look at the conflicts we have between countries. Then look at the conflicts we have within each individual country’s borders. We have many different ideologies that lead to disagreements, and conflicts. We have wars based on selfish efforts to overpower others for one’s own agenda. We have many organizations and groups that have their own agendas based on affecting others’ lives according to the most powerful groups decisions. This is the very real situation on the whole Earth.
No country, government or group is immune to this or free from some nations, groups or factions displaying this behavior or other efforts made to gain control or have power over someone else. As long as there are individuals and governments who seek their own agendas over the good of all, this will happen. We are very aware of this here in the U.S. since we’ve seen it play out in our own society.
Take a look at the technological leaps we’ve made in the last 100 years. We’ve gained nuclear power, computer technology, cellular phones, and the list goes on almost forever. None of these have “saved” mankind of been made to be free from the agendas of those who greedily seek financial or political power over others. Instead technology still also gets used to serve the quest for greater power and more deadly weapons. We can see examples where the hunger for more power and weapons grows still.
In addition, the craving for energy sources is great as well. We have over 7 billion people on the planet and will have 8 billion in a decade. We’ll move towards 9 billion after that. Looking down the road, our energy needs will be way more that they are today. The effort to get that energy to sell to consumers will be greater, also.
What do you think will happen when another (albeit, FRIENDLY) civilization comes forth that has technology and energy sources far more useful or powerful than our own?
In general, each country, each nation, each governing body, each corporation, each industry will be clambering for the technology and energy sources. On the whole, with current human thinking, the clamor and acquisition for the best technology means making the most money. With current human thinking, the race to get the energy sources ET’s have won’t bring different people’s into cooperation, but rather, more likely into more fighting. That is what is happening now. The level of technology and energy which non-Earth civilizations would bring – would trigger even greater conflict and even worse wars, because the fighting for these would continue. After all, wars have been the ways for many to accomplish getting what one wants, in the past. The motto, “Use what works.” is still alive on this planet.
Right now, the effort to get the technology and energy wouldn’t unite humans. Look at what nuclear capability brought. It did not unite peoples. Look at what computer technology has brought. There are still great imbalances among the different nations of the world – and how to disseminate and control that technology. Look at oil, electricity and the like. The struggle among humans for power over others still goes on even with the advances in technology and energy.
Those that are from other planets, or rather, those with benevolent intentions from other planets, don’t seek to get in the middle of the conflicts we have here on Earth. They know that their technologies and energies could lead to even greater conflict with the tug-o-wars that would happen. Governments would demand their share of technologies in the name of “keeping the balance of power” with many going to war to maintain this balance. Even greater wars than we’ve ever had, could happen.
Greater technologies will never be what saves humankind from our self and our own selfishness. We have much evolution to go through, yet. We can only be that which, and who, we are. Currently, all across the planet, we are still the humans that we are.
The day is coming that people from other planets make their presence known publicly. But, today, the human race as a whole is not where we need to be in order to avoid making a conflictual situation even worse.
No benevolent race of beings wants their arrival to destroy the people they come to “visit”. The human race, with its conflictual behaviors, and examples in history of the human drive to conquer rather than coexist, plus today’s examples of abusive behaviors to life here on Earth – and our not having the full collective will to stop the abuse – all point to this time in our lives not being when they should make themselves known.
Until that day comes, they may make themselves known to individuals or to small groups. They may make themselves known in secret. They may make themselves known as rumors and half-believed stories. They may make themselves known in ways that only a few believe are real. But, much has to happen among the human race before they make themselves known publicly to all people and all nations as visitors from another star system.

Because I’ve been so busy and haven’t had any opportunities – that’s why I haven’t gotten my 2016 predictions up yet.
I don’t see ***a lot*** of change happening on a Global scale comparing 2015 to 2016. By this I mean, I don’t see many major events making large changes from what we have in 2015. A few – but not many.
What I do see for 2016 more often is a continuation of that which has already been brought forth in 2015.
In general, the World’s economy will overall stay steady as she goes. The economy at the beginning of 2016 will pretty much be where we are at the end of 2016. However, there will be some economic problems or scares related to Europe, up and down, but ending at a stable place at the end of 2016.
India’s economy is still slowly growing and I see it continue to grow in 2016. China’s economy, too, will grow, but not as strong as India. Although, we won’t get any word of it, the country with the initials, NK – I see their economy getting worse. Sad indeed. The citizens there will suffer. The citizens of NK need our prayers, as they always have. The leader(s) don’t see a need to do anything about it.
Russia’s economy will fluctuate some because of their ties with Europe and Asia both. They’re invested in the countries around them, as well as their own. Some of their “investments” in other countries will bring bad results.
For the most part, except for the continued warring, the economies of the Middle East are stable, because they’re based on the sale of oil in the regions. Moving away from oil in any way will trigger some fluctuation, but in 2016 I don’t see any major disasters for any countries based on oil.
The US economy will continue as is it in 2015. At the end of Spring, 2016, I see an announcement from Washington that will help boost the economy more, even.
A Presidential Year in the US
As of December 29, 2015, a total of 1,458 candidates had filed a Statement of Candidacy with the Federal Election Commission. No, that’s not a typo. 1,458. That’s the total of all party candidates, independent. write-in, and non-affiliated candidates. Some of these were “meant as jokes”, but the majority are real people. There will not be 1,458 names on the ballots, because not all candidates register or meet the requirements to be on the ballots in all states.
As we get closer to the November, 2016 elections, we will see more and more what we can term as -“bizarre behavior” in our government officials. It’s hard to describe what it will be, but that word – “bizarre” – will be used by many.
What I see is that the diversity of opinions and beliefs in the U.S. can do nothing but remain the status quo. I’m seeing no success by any candidate in unifying the country. Every person who has their own opinions and beliefs thinks they’re opinions are right and the other people need to wake up to it. With this way of thinking, there is no middle ground where people are willing to come together.
I see extremism in American politics being the theme of the November, 2016 campaign trail.
The economy for the US will stay stable and doing well. The gasoline prices will remain at a lower level, but look for them starting to inch up around the end of the summer. I’m seeing a “flash” of an average price around $2.25 being the high by the end of the year. This will be an average with some areas of the nation being only slightly higher. What I’m also seeing is how volatile this price is – moved by human consciousness which moves like flocks of birds in the sky.
I’m seeing several medical breakthroughs announced in 2016. These will get little press time. What is getting press will be several more mass shootings happening sometime around May. Prayers can help to curb, minimize and even stop some of these shootings.
Overall, 2016 won’t be a “great” year for the Midwest large-scale farming or the US car industry. Although starting strong throughout the spring, midsummer will bring downward trends and struggles.
I see the immigration issue in the US as being a mud wrestling pit. There is no clarity and cleanliness to this issue. The politics of this issue will increase the separation of the divided camps. I see no worthwhile progress, just running for office dictating what is said and done. Congress will have another year of passing a low amount of legislation.
The economy will be good in general and overall. Food prices won’t increase much. Local farms will continue to serve their local customers. The drought will hit somewhat, but not as bad as in the past (in general. Different states will have different levels of it hitting.)
I see Africa struggling with similar issues as 2015. I see areas where government officials ignore the needs of the citizens in need, illnesses and diseases getting a toe hold.
I also see other nations reaching out to help African nations and this will keep Africa’s problems from getting too much worse – it won’t remove or solve the problems, but it will help it from getting much worse. A few areas will have serious problems.
Europe’s nation-cooperation will become more a stormy struggle and will require a great deal of hard work. Some of that hard work will come in 2016. The Syrian refugee issues will still be a major issue through the 1st half of 2016. The hugely vast majority of refugees will come to be seen as good citizens in the years ahead. But, it will also be years before the stigma is worn away.
The Middle East
I see an optimistic announcement coming from Washington sometime near the end of spring to mid-summer that a breakthrough has come in negotiations for better cooperation and acceptance among nations in the Middle East. This will be an uneasy breakthrough – and will come from a “compromise” – the definition of this compromise being “when both sides are equally dissatisfied with the results.”
Australia’s economy will not gain but will not lose much either. It is relatively active, but won’t increase, even with the incentives brought in. The problem is the vast amount of foreign investments are going to wait and see what happens, rather than take an aggressive or optimistic approach for 2016. On the plus side, the economy won’t lose that much because of it. Were foreign investments to take a more aggressive approach in vast numbers, Australia’s economy would grow.
Meanwhile, the drought will continue through 2016, as well. I see more potential for fires. Even with this happening, I see Sydney continuing in positive and growing ways. The energy of the city will be more celebratory than discouraging.
They will continue with some major earthquakes in the same old areas – mostly western S.A. Mudslides will accompany the earthquakes. The differences between 2015 and 2016 in so many areas of comment will be almost unnoticeable, except in Southwest S.A. which has a potential large destructive event which would be reported in world news. Prayers for this area will bring the destruction down to a small event – hardly worth mentioning and therefore not by news agencies.
The Pope will be more active in the 1st half of 2016, continuing to be in the public eye, but will stay more close to Rome in the 2nd half with much less visibility and press. His speeches will focus mostly on the poor, needy and suffering people in the world – some about the refugees. His messages will carry some sternness towards world leaders for the recalcitrance towards compassion and helpfulness of many nations’ leaders.
While the world will continue to experience natural disasters, I’m not seeing a hugely world event in 2016. The 2nd of 3 events I saw for August, 2015 has been broken up into smaller, better handled events over a number of areas, including what I think is deep water earthquakes off the coast of N.W Africa. If this does happen as I’m seeing it, it will be in the same area near where the southern tip of Atlantis existed over 12,000 to 200,000 years ago.
Because of the lower fuel costs, there will be less incentives for automakers to proceed with more efficient vehicle production. However, the research into electric vehicles will continue – especially in Japan. In the years ahead, the progress made in Japan, in the electric vehicle batteries will lead the industry, while American manufacturers will do more observing than research. The Tesla company will have some improvements, but Japan’s research is still ahead. Japan’s intention is to move the auto industry further into the electric vehicle direction by 2020. They see the China market – with it’s current pollution problems – and envision Japan’s cars as being a solution for China’s problems along that line. This is in actuality a positive move and will put them ahead of the game again, leaving the American manufacturers playing catch-up in electric vehicles as a solution. The growing China economy and growing spending power, plus China’s growing numbers of younger car buyers will be very open to electric vehicles. There will be a push for this to happen in 2019 and 2020, but will lessen going into 2021-2023. The focus during 21-23 will be on trying to come up with the next generation of technology for electric cars.
At the same time, during these years gas powered vehicles will still have the dominate share of the market. Unfortunately, for American car manufacturers, they are looking to much to the present and past, while Japan’s are looking more to the future.
Medicine and Medical Care
We won’t see much change over all from 2015 to 2016. A few unmentioned breakthroughs in medicine will be announced in a few medical journals. The controversies with vaccines will continue with the same arguments happening on both sides, but little pursuit to solidify any deeper insight or understanding of vaccines and autism. If more medical research were to happen in the field, more would be revealed that hasn’t been understood before. Currently, the status quo is pursued by pharmaceutical industries and the medical community (which doesn’t have research to say anything else.) The opposition to vaccines won’t go away soon, and may get louder until the medical community starts asking more questions about what is possible with vaccines and autism. Research is happening, but only in small pockets and effort is made more to ignore it.
Update: A New Energy
A new type of energy which I’ve been seeing coming into our lives within the next few decades is being delayed. The person I foresaw as spearheading the research is taking a longer approach in his research and therefore could add another 7-8 years before he finally develops his theories. The delay may only move the completion of the research into working models from 2045 or so, to 2050-2052. This also will change the timeline for the world’s beginning to make welcome contact with extraterrestrials, who, more than anything else, are waiting for humans to develop our own technologies to help the planet – technologies in energy that will move us away from polluting, non-sustainable energy sources.
The Spring of 2016 will see a bountiful harvest of local producing small farms. The weather from 2015-2016 will help bring water to the farms. Even though flooded, many areas will benefit from the water for food crops. As mentioned earlier, the large-scale farming operations will have trouble from the same weather. The small farms can recover faster.
2017 is different.
