The Audio portions of the 1-day retreat are now available for purchase. These audio recordings are not part of the free workshops that I sometimes offer, therefore there is a fee to obtain them.
The audio files have myself as the main speaker, but with group contribution and dialogue throughout the entire time. This group discussion format is my design, since I know that everyone brings something to the event which can benefit others. It was my intention for others’ sharing in the group discussions to add to the information which I presented.
There are 4 files in the complete set, and they are only available as the complete set. The cost is $18 for the complete set of 4. The total length of time is 6 hours and 18 minutes.

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 are at a time in our world, with technology, politics, social media and “everything else going on in the world”, where we sometimes don’t know what’s true or what isn’t. Very “loud” conflicts are happening with people on each side claiming the people on the other side are disseminating fake news. The “noise” level is so loud, that it can be very easy to not know what to believe or who to believe.
Now, in a “seeming” change of topic, at last count, there are more than 7.3 billion people on this planet. Of these 7,300,000,000 people, there are no two who are exactly alike. Because we’re different, because we’ve experienced different things in life – all through our life, we, therefore, have experienced different experiences, met different role models, mentors and teachers, felt different feelings, and thought different thoughts about and through all our lives. I mention this, because there are no two people who believe 100% exactly the same in all things of life. So, therefore, all 7.3 billion of us believe different things to be either true or false.
We may not know what is true, but so what. Our own dogged search for the truth via our seeking it from God can be chosen or not chosen per our own freewill. 7.3 billion people believe different things are true. Throughout all of mankind’s history, this has never been the actual source of the problem – beliefs being different. Having different beliefs has always been the way life is, anyway. It’s not a problem, because it’s not the cause of problems. Believing different things are true, is not a problem.
The problem is with how we relate to our beliefs, and therefore, motivate our own actions. In other words, what do we do with our beliefs? What actions do we take regarding our beliefs?
This is where problems arise. With different beliefs, do we choose to bring forth cooperation with others or do we choose to create conflict with others? Do we use our beliefs about what is true or not true to feel an underlying compassion for others or instead an underlying condemning of others? Do we use our beliefs to bring pain and suffering into people’s lives, or do we use our beliefs to motivate us to offer mercy, understanding and tolerance?
The issue is not what we believe, but what we do with our beliefs. Our actions and behaviors – how we relate and respond to others – determines how we walk in this world. It’s possible to believe exactly opposite than someone else, but with both people choosing for themselves to be kind, tolerant and compassionate, there will come to be peace and respect among them. We know people in our lives now, who believe differently than we do, but because they choose to show kindness, respect and patience, we enjoy their company. And there are people in our lives who we may believe so very similar, but yet they choose their behaviors towards others in such a way that we can’t wait to leave the room when they’re in it.
How do we use our beliefs? To help build separation and animosity, or to help build mercy and unity? We can profess to have the highest of beliefs, and even believe that “we know the truth”, but our behaviors and actions will speak more truth than our mind will hold or our mouth will speak. Our behaviors can become so loud, that no one can hear what we profess, anymore.
Actions speak louder than words, and our actions that we demonstrate – loving kindness or condemning judgment – are what shows how we relate to this world full of people. It is truly possible that billions of people can live in peace… and even with different beliefs.
Still, you may believe differently than this, …
and God bless you for it.

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.

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).

“Sell all you have and give to the poor, then come and follow me.” Mark 10:21
This is a well known story in the New Testament. Most people, if not almost all people, automatically think Christ is talking about money and possessions. After all, the story says Christ was talking to a rich man. The rich man then walked away sad, because he had so much.
I haven’t found any Bible version that says, the rich man was a man with lots of “money”. We assume the story refers to money and material possessions, because the term “rich” usually means this, but take another look at this in relation to the whole of Christ’s message. Perhaps “rich” means something else.
Christ worked with people all the time. He traveled with them, ate with them, slept with them, and all of these things took money to pay for and required ownership of material things. Food cost money back then like it does today. Clothing cost money back then, too. Sandals, water, wine, all the needs of the body cost money back then. His followers owned homes, boats, nets, tools of their trades.
So, was Christ saying these words to the ‘rich’ man, and all people with money and possessions? Was Christ saying sell all your possessions and give all your money to the poor? Was He saying sell your possessions to someone, so that particular someone else will have more possessions? This is close to what we’ve come to understand from reading this in the New Testament. Yet, is this all it was? Money is a tool or resource that can be used wisely. Possessions are useful tools also, to accomplish tasks. Houses are needed to live inside. The gist of what Christ said in looking at Christ’s entire message of His life is “Give what you have to those that do not have.”
Looking at this story in relation to all stories of Jesus, perhaps Christ was referring to something greater with more meaning.
What is it that God and Christ gives to us abundantly and without hesitation? What is it that God and Christ bestows upon us infinitely, even though we don’t accept it infinitely? It is these things that we have been given and possess in varying degrees of abundance.
It is the Fruits of the Spirit – loving kindness, patience, mercy, forgiveness, compassion, long-suffering, charity and more. This alone does God give us without hesitation, and without limit – even to the point that He could fill us up to overflowing were we open as much.
It is us who then are called to let go of, giving out these qualities, from within ourselves, pouring it forth to give to others that which we have within us. In this light, the message to the rich man becomes something else altogether if he was rich in the presence of Spirit and Love within his heart.
The message to us then becomes “take all the loving-kindness that you have within you, release it from holding on to it, and give it to the poor – those who appear to have no loving-kindness. Take all the mercy that you have within you, and are holding onto, and give to those who demonstrate having no mercy. Take all the patience and forgiveness that you have taken possession of inside you and give to those who are poor of patience and forgiveness inside them. Take the compassion, the support, the charity, the fruits of the Spirit that you claim as your own bestowed upon you – and give to those who seem to possess none of these qualities.”
This is a different message altogether. To give away our money can be a superficial message referring to that which is external of our Self. It is appropriate at times, yet, it can also be thought that giving money will buy our way into heaven, even though there’s no such thing as “buying our way into heaven”.
Christ’s message is always more about what is WITHIN us. With understanding Christ’s life and message as a whole, we can begin to understand this story in a deeper way. His message has always been “Love one another as I have loved you.” And He repeats this to the “rich man”. Take the love I give to you and that you now have within you, and give this love to those who do not have love.
We can now understand why the rich man walked away, also. Because, just how easy is it to love those who don’t love? How easy is it to show compassion to someone who has very little compassion inside him/her? How easy is it to show kindness, patience, mercy or charity to someone who has no mercy inside them, or kindness, or patience or charity inside them? It isn’t easy at all.
In our world today, we have many that we see as having no compassion, no mercy, no kindness, no patience, and we are called by Christ to “Don’t hold on to all the mercy, kindness, patience, etc that we have been given and is now within us, but rather give it all to those who have none inside them.”
We can understand how such a daunting task today could cause us to turn and walk away. How can we show mercy and forgiveness to someone who is showing no mercy and no forgiveness? How can we show patience and kindness to someone who is showing no patience and no kindness? How can we show these qualities to someone who we recently have shown contempt towards or slandered.
Again, there is only one way that we can do this, because “for man, this is impossible. But, with God, all things are possible.”
With God, we can release the loving-kindness within us sending it to someone who has no loving-kindness within them. With God, we can let flow the compassion, understanding and patience to someone who has no compassion or understanding or patience. With God, we can forgive and show mercy to someone who has no forgiveness or mercy within them.
With God, we can patiently and mercifully love those we never thought we could patiently and mercifully love – others, as well as our self. With God.
“Every time we act in a certain way, we add to the totality of consciousness to go in that certain direction – whether healthy or unhealthy, constructive or destructive. Hence why persistent kindness and its companions can truly change the consciousness in the world.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2017, Jodie Senkyrik)
