The Question

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Light in the Darkness

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

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

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

God bless all of you.

“Giving to the Poor” (?)

So many of us have thought, “if I had money, I would give to those who need. If I had more money, I would donate it to many charities.”  “If I won the lottery, I’d donate so much of it.”  So many times, so many of us have had this sentiment – that if we had lots of money, then it would be possible – that we would not miss it if we gave to those who were in need. It is an easy thought to have, and it is a common belief to have, even at the same time that we may realize the “WE” are the needy.

It is in these statement moments, in these moments of belief that we think, I don’t have enough to give to others.  It is in these moments, also that, simply put, we are thinking of our bank account, thinking that money is the only thing the poor need.  In essence, we are not considering the riches beyond what is obvious.  Most certainly we’re not thinking of anything of which we do have.  We’re not thinking in other directions with this idea, especially when we aren’t even aware of any “riches” which we do have.

Instead, in these moments of wishing in our hearts that we could be monetarily generous, why not look at the “riches” which we do have and give of that?

While we may look around and think to ourselves, “What riches? I’m taking care of my family and myself as best I can. What riches do I have?”

What I refer to is the riches which are given to us in every moment. These are the riches which are conceivably infinite in supply. We merely need to be aware of these riches and we can then begin giving them out… if we so choose to be this generous.

These riches are hidden, sometimes to ourselves. We don’t even know we have them, sometimes. But, we do face the experience of knowing them, because we come face to face with the “storing house” where we keep these riches. Do you understand where I’m going with this? Not yet?  These riches are meant for people who are in need, and I mean “IN NEED!”

But remember, with these riches, we also can be stingy, and give nothing, if we so choose.  However, if our willingness stays in our hearts and minds, and our generosity is the spirit which we wish to be a part of, then we can begin giving the riches which we do have (and these riches are abundant indeed.)

The riches are the ones in our hearts.  Beginning with  – the richness of forgiveness being one of the most abundant, IF we so choose it to be, and IF we’re willing to continue to give out an abundance of forgiveness which others need. There is infinite forgiveness within us, and the question then is if we are willing to give to those who need forgiveness.  There-in is the rub.  We are faced with the question, are we really wanting to be generous and give to those in need?  If so, then we can start with those who are in need of forgiveness.

In the same way, Mercy, is another richness, which exists in infinite amount within our heart and soul, and which we stand ready at the counting house door, able to give if we so choose to give.

We’ve been at these riches’ storing house doors many times in the past, and failed to realize how rich we were, … and … at the same time that we’ve chosen to not give out our riches to those who need.

We all know people who need forgiveness. We all know people who need mercy. We all know people who need kindness, and understanding. And we all know people who need our patience, and our tolerance, and many more of that which is within our own heart.

We can give out every amount we think we have, because no matter how much we give out, we do not reach the bottom of the amount which exists within us. Yes, we may reach points where we choose to not give out any of that of which we have an infinite supply – of that which the person desperately needs, but we never reach the end of the supply.

We can give out our riches in the quiet of our own thoughts and feelings. We can give out forgiveness in the silence of our time alone, thinking of another. We need not be in anyone’s presence or any specific location. We don’t need to trumpet it to the crowds. It is not a matter of where or how or why. It is only a matter of willingness to give, and then giving.

Forgiveness, Mercy, Kindness, Patience, Understanding, Tolerance, Love, Gentleness, and more, – we have a massive storehouse for these – a storehouse so great in size that it has no end and no limiting walls. It comes from within us and there is no limit within us – except when we decide to say “No. I won’t” and we close the door to that which is within us that we otherwise would have given.

Then and only then, do we close the door to our storehouse and not give of that which we have an infinite supply – and usually to someone who is more in need of what we would give them, than anyone could ever know.

The final decision is ours.  We can be generous with the riches we have within us ready to give, because there is no end to these riches. There is no limit. Within us is the Infinite Forgiveness, the Infinite Mercy, the Infinite Loving Kindness, the Infinite Patience, etc, which we are learning exists within God – and which we are learning God makes available to us, within us, ready to give out, as soon as we are willing to decide to give to others, … and to ourselves.

We can fulfill our own wish to be generous, perhaps not with money, but with some things that are more valuable than money.  And if we so choose, we can even give to ourselves.

Psychic Predictions for 2019

[The password is removed from this article originally posted in Jan, 2019, making it now available to the public.]

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.

Predictions:

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.

Weather 2019:

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.

[For specific areas of the US, or other countries, please ask in the comments section.  And don’t forget, you can let others know about this blog article, too.]

Natural Disasters:

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.

Medicine:

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.

Diseases:

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.)

Politics:

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.

Misc.:

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

  1. 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.
  2. “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.
  3. “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.
  4. “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.
  5. (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”)

The World as We Knew It

There is a psychological phenomenon described this way – many older people, having lived a large part of their/our life in a world where there was no climate change whatsoever, and now living in a world where this is only a little climate change – don’t believe in climate change because they won’t see it – in that they’ll pass on before they see it or have it directly touch them. It is not something for them to worry about or deal with. This phenomenon is easily visible in publicly visible elected officials, especially considering that 50% of the US Senate is 65+.  The elderly make up the greater numbers of climate deniers or the climate “I don’t care” group.

It has been observed that as people age, they tend to hold onto the world of the year span in which they were in their teens to 40’s more than enter into the current world. This contributes to “generation gaps”. In other words, the world that we used to live in, we tend to hold onto in our thoughts, feelings, and actions. Generally, the world that exists today then becomes generally ignored at a certain level in our consciousnesses by older generations. Generally, even those who say they aren’t ignoring or denying the current world, are doing it in some ways, albeit not in others, without being 100% aware they are.  (All generalizations are false, including this one.)

We cannot avoid this process within ourselves. We tend to focus on “Life as we know it” because of how we feel and think. There are many feelings of confidence that go along with “knowing all about life”. Imagine the feelings that go along with “having no clue how to live in the world of today.” And we know the past ways of living better than we know the current ways of living, thus giving us a sense of safety and security by holding onto the past worlds that we already lived in.  There’s a difference of feeling our feet on solid ground vs. on constantly changing ground (like ocean waves).

A generalization is – “as elderly acknowledge they’ll die soon, knowing they’ll never deal with climate change, have no need to worry about climate change and therefore don’t.”

However, when there is awakened within someone a concern for future generations taking precedence over one’s own life and one’s own soon death – children and grandchildren – there is an awakening for what the future generations will face.

The younger generations carries the complete and total weight of the destruction which climate change is now bringing and with increasing levels, will bring in more widespread occurrences. It is the younger generation who will be living through the destruction – of which we’ve been getting more and more a taste every year – that comes with climate change.  And this destruction is not imaginary for the younger generation, like it is for older generations, many of whom cannot imagine how bad it will be because they’ve never had it in their world.

The questions for us are, which world do we live in today?  Which world are we creating to live in, if any, tomorrow?  Which world of the past are we holding onto and why are we holding onto it?  We have answers to these questions inside us.

Regardless of how we answer these or feel about them, the world we used to live in doesn’t exist anymore except in our own memories and wishes.  We can live our life in our memories or we can join the world of today and start living our life, again, deciding what we can give to the world – for the rest of today, and tomorrow, … and the next day… and the next.  We’re not dead, today, and this means we have work to do with some of that work preparing for the climate change destruction which is increasing each day.  The last question we have related to this is – how much can we reverse…. today?  (Remember, today is the only day we can work on this.)

Predictions for Health Care: 2017 – 2018

It is a time for calling for meditation and calling for prayer.  I’ve seen this future for quite some time and I see it still in place. I’ve not shared it, because I hoped and prayed for something better.  I still do.

The elected officials feel they were given the mandate to make policy to change what their voters were angry about. But, not to help all the people of the country – only certain people. So, policy is made to ensure that certain things would happen to some people. Quite literally, some people would not be able to continue living.  Many people – adults and children will struggle to stay alive.

What I see if all things stay as they are today:  With the Republican’s efforts to be successful at ending the Affordable Health Care Act, very little to nothing will replace it.  With this change, some people are going to die – some will die a very slow death. Their deaths won’t be in worldly dramatic ways. Their deaths won’t be in the media – although the numbers will be reported. It is the future in place.

Many will go into great debt having to pay huge medical bills until unable to pay any more. Many will have medical bills that drain their savings and funds until they run out. The economy will suffer greatly, because the money will dwindle that would have stimulated growth. Citizens will slow down on spending to try to save for when medical bills hit them.  All finances of many people will be going to pay medical bills and medicines.

This is the beginning.  This is the beginning of the 3rd of the 3 World Events.  It starts small, insignificantly and will grow “seemingly” slowly through several years.  But, remember, the future can be changed through prayer and meditation.

2017 and 2018 are the years that the officials and their staff are helping ensure that this policy becomes law.

I hoped and prayed for something better to happen, but I see this future remaining in place over and over, every time I look. I am not seeing the public stopping this from happening.

It’s like being in a very skimpy tiny flotation device in the middle of nowhere and seeing a very large alligator eying you and approaching closer and closer. The danger is real. Not enough people are acting and praying to stop this.

There are 300 million souls living in the U.S.  This means there are 300 million hands on the steering wheel selecting the direction this country goes.  Those who put forth effort to turn the wheel a certain direction are the ones who influence the direction the country goes.  Prayer and meditation adds strength to the hands of each one that seeks to turn the steering wheel.  Our efforts to strengthen God’s presence with this can help.  “With God, all things are possible.”

“Hatred is Not Justice”

(The title is a quote from the book, “Nosso Lar” by Francisco Cândido Xavier.  It is translated from Portuguese to English in the book, “Astral City”. )

There are many people in the world right now, who currently say that their hatred leads them to bring justice.  We see and hear many people all over the world saying that their hatred brings justice.  But, all sane people know that their saying this, doesn’t make it true.  Yet, frustratingly, like the others, all of us still have times when we grasp hold of the idea thinking that with our hatred, we can enact justice.

But, hatred is not justice.  When we catch ourselves and step back – stepping back from our own hatred, which we can do, albeit asking God’s help to do this – we can acknowledge that the words of the title statement are true words.

In the moments of hatred rising, why do we take hold of the idea that hatred might bring justice?  More often, it is because of our suffering.  We may believe that to be rid of the pain of hatred as well as the suffering of others or our own being attacked by our human brothers and sisters, we must act out of hatred in return, calling it justice.

But, hatred is not justice.  God’s gift to us is not hatred.  In that vein, we may wonder, ‘then what do we do with criminals and terrorist’s?’

There are many things we can do.  We start with God.  Our prayers, our meditations, our acts from the heart – all of these are where we start.  In addition, as the human race, throughout human history, we also have progressed on a path of developing laws designed to govern behavior.  This evolutionary path is not finished.  We are not at the end of evolving lawfully or socially.   Our efforts to walk a higher road has led humans to strive to design laws and create consequences to breaking those laws according to ever higher principles of honest justice.

For us as individuals, we can take a look at our self.  We can choose to let the statement live in our own behaviors and choices. This can help us as individuals to choose a different behavior towards the people in our lives and the people who we only know about on TV.  We can choose to hold onto the principle that hatred is not justice, and then look for ways to make it real in our day-to-day lives, activities and relationships.

When we choose to remember that hatred is not justice, we can also act from this awareness towards those who think that their hatred is their source of justice.  When we act from hatred, we don’t always realize that our hatred is the same as others’ hatred.  We may deny our hatred, and they do, too.  We may justify our hatred, but so do they.  In the end, where is the difference in hatreds?

There are too many examples in the news, every day, of when people act from the belief that their hatred is different – their hatred is righteous – their hatred is justified – their hatred is a gift from God.  No one religion holds the monopoly on these acts of hatred – every philosophy and religion has people who have acted believing hatred (whether in large ways or small ways) is their way to justice.

But, hatred is not justice.  We will evolve beyond hatred, learning this, if we remember one day at a time, that justice does exist, even though we may never, in our own minds and our own paradigms, understand fully how it could be.  We can evolve beyond hatred, with God’s help.  We can evolve beyond hatred through our prayers, our meditations, one day at a time, through our efforts on each day that we remember God and God’s Infinite and unending Love for each of us.

God will never give up on teaching us – “hatred is not justice” – that God is the Justice we seek, in addition to God being Infinite Understanding, Infinite Patience, Infinite Kindness, Infinite Love, Infinite Forgiveness, Infinite Peace, Infinite Mercy and more.

These are God’s true gifts to us.

Election 2016 Reading done Nov. 10, 2016

A few points to remember:

  1. Every person is a child of God. Everyone. There are no exceptions. God has given every one of us freewill with regards to the path we walk and the choices we make in life. God will not take away freewill from any of us.  Elected officials have freewill as well.
  2. Jesus said to Pontius Pilate, that which He knew was true, “You have authority over me, because God gave it to you.” This can show us that people are in positions of authority because God allows this. I add that my understanding is that God allows this to give each soul opportunities to face challenges to grow. Some souls take the opportunities to grow, some souls stumble and fall.
  3. This reading recording is presented as is, with a few personal pieces of information edited out. What is left in, is information available for general use.
  4. Some of you will be adamantly against what I present. That which I see psychically is what I stated. If it were not what I see psychically, I would tell you.
  5. I don’t see Donald Trump’s presidency as being either extremely good or extremely bad. Each presidency has had it’s good and bad. While many may argue against the point that, “There is good in the worst of us, and there is bad in the best of us.” (Edgar Cayce), the point is still true.

Finally, I’ll remind everyone who posts comments (which are welcome), I will monitor the comments and edit out – insults, demeaning names, effort to show disrespect, and slander. I will leave in discussion, differences of opinion, effort to show evidence of different views, and expression of different values.

Be Inspired ! !

Yes, even if we’re feeling discouraged about the politics in the U.S., now is a good time to get up in the morning with hope in our hearts.  Why, because now is a wonderful opportunity to do something specific.

Instead of being discouraged, angry and bitter, look for someone or something that you feel is inspiring.  These exist everywhere.  Look for topics.  Look for speakers.  Look for actions – all of which are inspiring to you.  All of these are happening.  We can see them on the Internet, in society, on Youtube, on Facebook, and many other places.

The energy we feel when we look for inspiration is a recognition that our hope is a hope for very real results.  Inspiration is the belief that there is a force of accomplishment in our planet which we can connect to and ride – like a surfer on a wave.  This wave of inspiration raises us up.  This energy of inspiration – of being inspired – of listening to someone or watching something that is inspiring – is a force that spreads – strengthening the heart of individuals all over the place.  Then, in turn, helping us to act in whatever way we find is best.

When we seek inspiration, we find inspiration. There are people in the world that are inspiring.  There are stories people share that inspire others.  There are speakers that inspire people.  When we join with these others, we feel the VERY REAL energy of being able to accomplish what we seek to accomplish.

Sure, we may get tired and weary, discouraged and feel despair sometimes.  After all, we are human beings.  But, we can also breath in strength, and as Og Mandino wrote in his book, “The Greatest Salesman in the World”, “He who is determined enough to succeed, will never fail.”  Who among us is advocating ‘giving up’ on anything that we know is worthwhile to pursue?

As the inspiration grows within one’s own heart and mind, let it also be turned within, to inspire us to accept and forgive, be patient and let go of judgment.  Let this inspiration also guide us inwardly to seek within our heart who to forgive and who to show mercy towards.  Let this energy inspire us to have compassion.  Let it inspire us to have fortitude to stay the course – to be patient – to have mercy towards others – to show charity when the need exists, and to seek out and learn wisdom.  Let this inspiration motivate us to give of our time or money or cooperation or energy or muscle to help join with others wherever we find ourselves – to cooperate in lifting up humanity, or our nation, or our community or our small group, or our family and friends.  Let this inspiration motivate us to show love to all the living beings around us – to give of our heart and mind.

Remember the Dr. Seuss cartoon story of the Who of Whoville?  When the Grinch stole their Christmas decorations, Christmas still happened within the hearts and minds of all the people of Whoville.  Did you feel good when you saw that part?  Was it because inspiration (Christmas), courage, fortitude, persistence, dedication, joy, community, friendship, joining together – all of these still exist within our hearts and are not based on external events?

If any of us need inspiration, look at historical events which are devastating.  Then look at how we respond to these devastating events.  People come together to persevere, to show courage, to rebuild, to give inspiration for those who are discouraged or suffering – to help people stand back up in the face of adversity.

Let whatever words from others that help to lift you up be hung as your banner and flag.  For me, I’ve always liked, “He or She, who is determined enough to succeed will never fail” and “Let God decide what is possible.” and “There will never be a day that we can stop hatred and violence in the world by opposing it using hatred and violence.” and many of the others in the Rainbow Cards.  I think of that for all individuals.  And when one person joins with another one person, and then another one person, and on and on, strength grows for us as a unified group.

*******

If your counter-argument to what is above is that it’s hard to be inspired when one gets beat-up, spit upon, whipped, pushed around, kicked, and nailed up on a cross to die, then you’re absolutely right.  And yet, with God, all things are possible – even resurrection.

To Know Oneself

Over and over and over, we give ourselves messages from ourselves.  We talk to ourselves in our minds.  We think to ourselves.  We assure ourselves.  We comfort ourselves. We chastise ourselves.  We criticize ourselves.  We are instant messaging ourselves all the time – telling ourselves all kinds of things about the world and ourselves throughout the day.  We communicate more with ourselves than any other being in existence – all happening in all the different levels of our minds.

And we’re always honest with ourselves, right?  The one person who we would think would be honest with ourselves would be our self, right?  There’s no question that what we tell ourselves is always the truth, right?

Not really, and that’s putting it mildly, isn’t it.

In all honesty, we’re just as likely to be dishonest with ourselves as we are with anyone else.  In fact, sometimes it’s easier, isn’t it. Many times, since we’re the one who judges whether it’s okay to lie about something, we are mostly okay when we lie even to ourselves.  Aren’t we.  We do it so often, that we often don’t know the truth when we hear it, or say it.  Isn’t that true?  We have a version in our minds which we say is true, and which we tell ourselves is the absolute truth, and which we would swear to in front of any other person who asks, right?

That “truth” that we call “truth” to ourselves – we know that very well.  That’s the version of truth that we’ve worked out inside ourselves to be called “true.”  In our subconscious and in our day-to-day consciousness, we go about our day deciding what is going to be the truth and what isn’t.  Isn’t that so – not always consciously, but then sometimes consciously, right?

And how does this serve us?

It serves us by not requiring us to feel all the feelings and emotions which go along with acknowledging the actual truth.  Many times the actual truth that we don’t acknowledge comes connected to sadness and sorrow, grief and disappointment, anger and bitterness, hatred and aggravation – feelings we don’t want to be experiencing or acknowledge.

It also serves us by giving us a different view of who we think we are – or a view of how far we think we’ve grown on this spiritual path or in any way whatsoever.  Sometimes, subconsciously, these are factors that we think may determine whether we get loved or not.  After all, everyone wants to be loved, and maybe the “better people” are the ones that get loved.  And if I’m a “better people”, I should then be loved, too.  Right?

The actual truth doesn’t come with all of these aspects and factors all the time, but still, the actual truth that we want to not be true, many times does in truth come with heavy, painful, and disturbing feelings and acknowledgments as well as those subconscious messages which we tell ourselves related to being loved in the world, (a formidable source of motivation, since after all, everyone wants to be loved.)

Yet, this actual truth can come forward within us, but only if we allow it and only if we allow the emotions to come, also.  It can knock on the door, but it comes in only when we open the door and welcome it in.

This actual truth often comes with an assessment of ourselves.  It sometimes points out how we need to change something within ourselves or how we may have acted inappropriately in how we related to someone.  It can come with regret or sorrow, shame, guilt or embarrassment.  Or it can come with a chance to heal.

There are times that we can really benefit from knowing the actual truth.  There are times that we can heal when the actual truth is acknowledged.  Counseling helps that process.  Talk therapy helps a person find their way to clean out their closet filled with all kinds of stuff that we fill closets with.  Yet, that’s only one way of many ways to figure out the truth within ourselves, though.

Sometimes, it helps to just be willing to accept the actual truth, regardless of what comes with it.  “Willingness” to allow the actual truth to come forward is the single strongest quality that helps it come forward.

Yes, we can lie to ourselves about being willing.  We can tell ourselves that we want the actual truth, and then not be willing to open the door for it.  Sincerity is a big key, but then sincerity includes willingness and comes with one of the deeper forms of honesty, doesn’t it.

What has helped me many times is to pray to God – “God, help me be honest with myself.”  If I’m really wanting honesty and truth, who better to ask for help to gain honesty and truth.  When we’re truly sincere about working to be more honest with ourselves, it’s best to start with the one who can actually help make that goal a reality.  When we pray for God to help us be honest with ourselves, we are “standing in front of the face of God.”  We are placing ourselves in front of the face of the One who knows Truth about ourselves, about our thoughts, our feelings, our actions, our behaviors, our pain, our suffering, our shame, our guilt, our disappointments, our grief, our hopes, our dreams, our loves, our hates, our healing, our needs, our crying out in the wilderness, our courage and our fear – our whole selves – our deepest parts of ourselves and our shallowest parts of ourselves – our honesty and our lies.  It’s not that easy to do, but again, all we need to be is “willing” in order to move forward.

“God, help me be honest with myself” is a gentle prayer, but can be an effective one if what we seek is the real truth about ourselves and our lives, and to be honest with that real truth about ourselves and our lives.

It’s a challenging “row to hoe”, and what I describe here is in no way the whole truth and nothing but the truth, because I don’t have a lock on ‘Truth’.  But the effort we make to dig for the truth – to dig for being honest with ourselves – pays off with a greater understanding and knowledge of ourselves, and to know our self, honestly and truthfully, is an ever greater thing to know.  “There’s gold in them thar hills” – or in this case – the priceless jewels of who we are await us when we come to know ourselves.  Getting to know our self is one of the greatest things in all existence.  When we do this, we then come to understand more of our relationships with God, with others and very importantly, our relationship with ourselves.

Surprising, but true.

And on the higher side….

Sometimes, what I add via the blogs can be so heavy.  It’s certainly a time of some serious s*#t.  But, at the same time, I want to remind everyone of the true and real progress that we continue with.  We may not always see it, but as my friend, Nancy K. regularly reminds me, the efforts we put forth join with the efforts of others and on and on, and move the entire planet forward to ever increasing greater and higher vibrations and spiritual awareness.

Oh, sure, we also see “low vibration” activities – destruction, hatred, prejudice, greed, violence – so many ways to create non-love based experiences for people and the Earth.  And these we will see more of, but there is no failure for those who are determined to succeed – and use patience and persistence to succeed – keep on keeping on – take it one day at a time, keep putting one foot forward, take one more step, and every other cliche I can remember along these same lines.

The entire Galaxy is supporting our efforts to raise the vibrations of this planet.  And other Galaxies besides ours are sending us their support and high vibrations.  What we can do is to put into action, the type of action that we want a high-vibration planet to be about.  The Earth is as we create it – collectively.  Put another way, the Earth is as we heal it.

Who are we?

I know there is a lot of talk about drought but in the Dallas area we are in the 3rd worst drought since 1899. The lake I drive over, one side is dry the other is drying up. It’s the worst I’ve seen. This is May, the hot summer months are ahead. Will we have a record breaking 100 degree summer again? When will this end! When it does rains for a minute I remember what rain really is. I watch the TV and see all the storms in the east causing lots of damage and all we got was a sprinkle or two. It’s kind of scary.  (Vicki, May 3, 2014)

It can, indeed, be kind of scary.  Yet, life is such that we don’t live going backwards, no matter how much we may want to try to hold onto the past.  And as scary as it sounds, our living forward is a good thing.

We will not see weather patterns of the past – weather that we consider normal weather – in the future.  We no longer live in that climate or world situation.  We have a different world existing now based on over 7 billion people living on the planet, and this different world is where we now live ever moving onward to 8 billion people.  We will have greater pendulum swings, and in between these swings will be what appears to be normal as compared to the past.  But, we will find ways to help to live our lives, as every generation before us has.

There are many factors in our world that have brought about “the end of the world as we know it” and so we’ve experienced this “end of the world as we know it” over and over again.  Take a look at Sept 11, 2001 as an easy example to see this.  But, it is true in other ways, also.  Neal Armstrong walking on the moon was another example, as was the end of the Soviet Union.  Others are yet to happen.  One of these examples is climate change.  We don’t live in that past world – we no longer live in a world of only 5 billion or 6 billion people.  We are here, now, and this world has challenges to face and work on.  We will work for solutions and we will pray for guidance.  We will continue to live our lives, as every generation before us has.

While it could be easy to say the past was better for us, remember, for some, the past was way worse, also.  How many people in Europe would like to return to the 1940’s to live?  How many people in Viet Nam would like to return to the 1960’s to live?
But, the question and issue isn’t “what is the world like, today.”  The question and issue is “who are we, today.”  This is a question that every generation before us has had to answer, and now, it’s up to us.   Who are we?

Hydrogen Fueled Cars

The prototypes for hydrogen fueled cars are already being seen.  But…

This direction for vehicles is not going to be the direction that manufacturers go.  Hydrogen will get a lot of support for the next 15 years before it starts to lose its support and resources.  By 2030, hydrogen fueled cars will be a novelty and not seen often.

Electric cars are the future – especially in the U.S.  This is the technology that will be supported and pursued by the public and by manufacturers.  So, if you’re a hydrogen fuel fan, go ahead and buy one if they ever come out at all, but plan on putting it on display or parking it when the technology although touted, falls way short of what Madison Avenue says.

By 2030, 1/3 to 1/2 the new cars on the roads will be electric and electric hybrids.  Since this is only 17 years away, expect gasoline powered vehicles to still be around (1/2 to 2/3rds.)   Why will they still be around?  Because the economy will be such that most people won’t be able afford to buy new vehicles.

As the decade of the 2030’s closes, the economy will get better.  Before then, though, I see a slow decline for the economy.
