“Who are you?”

“I’d also love to know who you are, where you came from and how did you know all those stuffs. It’s amazing revealing. I’d love to learn from you.” M.

If we look for learning within ourselves, from the “still, small voice of God” within the heart and soul, we will learn from God. If we look for learning outside of ourselves, we might get lucky.
We come to know that we learn from what others put forth in books and discussions, but others are not the source of that which is truly worth learning. God speaks to us within ourselves, and others merely are putting into words that which God is trying to teach us from within our own heart and soul. The source is God, but sometimes we need help from other people in “getting it put into concepts and words that we understand”.

In these moments, we recognize the words of God within us, even though He used an “outside of us” translator in that moment.  This also means that God will teach us with the help of many people. The Bible says that wisdom comes from having many teachers.

I am a traveler on the path, one who asks questions and listens for answers.  In the words of the Beatles, “I am he, as you are he, as you are me, and we are altogether.”

I strive to practice what I learn and make it real.  I work on myself and share what adds to my understanding.  I strive to know myself and my relationship to God and others.  I am a human being striving to evolve.  I pray and meditate.

Isn’t it amazing what God can do with the “dust of the Earth?”

The Holes in Siberia

What I see is this:  There is a focused level of great heat coming up from deep below the holes deep in the Earth – more like “mini-volcanoes”.  Because it is so cold where these are, the surrounding area remains frozen, hence why the holes look weird.  Had they happened in temperate areas, the holes would have formed differently.

The heat comes from fissures below ground.  This warms the iced areas, creating both pressure and an opportunity from that which is frozen to melt.

It makes the news now because we humans love stories of magic and wonder.  Do you think it will make the “front pages” or “6-oclock news” when the natural understanding of their formation happens?

I expect a few more to show.

Prayer, Meditation, Edgar Cayce and Hurricanes

While Edgar Cayce himself participated in drilling for oil in the 1920′s, and the readings tried to help him, he didn’t succeed at that particular time.  The readings considered the venture worth pursuing, though. However, what he did succeed in at that time, and during his life, was help people to learn the power and influence of meditation and prayer.

We can see this now as being a powerful force to help in facing disasters here on Earth.  In my own work, I was able to psychically see that after Hurricane Katrina, the outpouring of prayers for the entire Gulf Region – the outpouring of prayers coming from across the country – brought forth the Christ Spirit to protect the Gulf during the entire 2006 hurricane season and 1/2 of the 2007 hurricane season.  While meteorologists were baffled, expecting a great many hurricanes, it was a quiet season and they didn’t know why.  I did.

Skeptics could have a field day with this vision I describe.  But, it brings us face to face with the challenge.  Do we believe in prayer and meditation or not?  Do we believe prayer can change things in this world?  Do we believe the power of thousands and even millions praying and meditating can change the future, change the Earth, and change situations for the better?

What about the questions, “What are we thinking that will happen that will let us know that our prayers have been answered? How will it appear?  Will there be signs in the sky telling us, ‘Your prayer has been answered from XYZ happening to ABC happening’?”

I don’t think so.  Who else saw or even considered that it was the prayers of the many that resolved the 2006 hurricane season?  But, if we believe that prayer and meditation can change things, then we are going to have to expect things to not happen as they may be expected.  And we may not fully be aware that we did in fact change the future with our prayers and meditations.

Edgar Cayce and the readings spoke often of the power of God.  The readings speak of Christ and His current and continuous involvement in our lives.  Books abound about personal contact with Jesus Christ and other spiritual beings.  All of these describe a very active involvement by the Divine with our personal and collective lives.  And so, we have to decide if we believe in prayer and meditation or not, because prayer and meditation are practices that can make direct contact with the Divine.   Edgar Cayce’s readings are clear about this over and over again.

Many believe it is important to pray and meditate but yet expect nothing to come from it.   That’s like playing the lottery, but throwing  the ticket away in the trash, the same moment we buy it.  Putting effort forth, but expecting nothing from that effort.

I think I remember E.C.’s readings saying, (someone may have to help me with the reading number)  “Expect much, you’ll gain much.  Expect little and you won’t be disappointed.”

I think this is telling us that God is eager to be an active participant in creating this world that we live in, and affecting our lives in a healing and supportive way.  But, God won’t take away our freewill to choose to bolt and lock the door before He enters, when we’ve just finished inviting Him in.

What I tell people is something that I’ve come to realized for myself from reading and studying the Edgar Cayce readings.  I don’t know if it’s specifically in the  readings, but the readings have helped me to be aware of this.

Don’t trust the doubt we have in God.  Don’t trust the doubt we have in ourselves, our prayers, or our meditations.  Doubt is not truth.  We may have it but it’s not true and need not be trusted.  God’s readiness to be active in our lives is the truth.

In praying for any disaster anywhere, right now, let’s not tell God what He is capable of or not capable of.   Let’s ask Him to show us.  Studying the readings have helped me to believe that God rejoices in the opportunities to show us what He can do.  A new paradigm is being created on this planet – by God – through us and with us.  Through our prayers and meditations, we can participate in this new paradigm in ways we could never have come up with by ourselves.  But, God won’t do it without us if we decide to not participate.

Prediction for 2015: World Disaster Event 2 of 3

March, 2014

I’m now seeing more of the 2015 “Event 2 of 3″ that I’ve been seeing for several years now and commented about before here in this blog.  The area I’m seeing it occurring  is the Atlantic Ocean at the northeast section of South America.  I see it being larger than anything that has been experienced in that particular area.

I don’t see it being a Level 5 Hurricane.  I see it being worse for some reason but worse because it spreads throughout the Atlantic Ocean – slowly – but spreads nonetheless.  It could be triggered by another earthquake, but it is not an earthquake by itself.

I have seen there being two months of warning signs, but I don’t think the warning signs will be readily understood.  I think the warning signs might be upheavals of some type but this isn’t clear, yet.  The upheavals could be social, economic, or physical.  And this whole happening event begins in June of 2015 with the 2 months of “warning” then culminating in August of 2015.  We actually may not know of some of it until December, 2015.  The full impact will not be felt immediately, but alarms of the potential impact will become public.

The results of this event will eventually affect a vast area of the Atlantic, including the East Coast of the US in major ways. This event will devastate the people of the islands in the area.

It will be slightly more impactful than the Japanese Tsunami/Nuclear disaster.  It could come from inland in the Northeast corner of South America – in the Guyana, Surname, Venezuela areas or the central most point of this event could be in the Northern most area of Brazil.  But, it could also come from off the coast of these countries and be a combination of inland and offshore events which would cause greater devastation.

Naturally, the area of effect would include all the islands in the Caribbean and Florida.  The impact area will spread up along the Eastern Coast of the US.  The impact will eventually also affect the western coast of Africa and in time, Portugal, Spain, the United Kingdom, and areas around the Atlantic Ocean.

This brings just as many questions as it does information.  I’ve looked at Volcanic activity, hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, nuclear explosion and I’m not seeing any one of these being the cause.  That’s why I believe it will be a combination as well as more, just like Japan’s disaster was.

Our prayers would go to the people affected by this – citizens of the area.  The event itself is not stoppable.  This is the area where Atlantis existed.

June 26, 2014

Again, I see the event begin not as a cataclysmic event but rather as a gradual increase of devastating circumstances – growing and spreading over time via the Atlantic Ocean.  I believe natural phenomenon are going to help this happen, but there will be some man-made aspect to it, also.

It could take many months to experience the full impact upon the areas.  But, people will be impacted severely.  I also see Europe being affected by the time the Autumn of 2015 moves into Winter.

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?

How do we know?

Hi Jodie! I wasn’t sure where to ask my question, so I thought I would put it here, hehe.. I “stumbled” across your page awhile ago, looking for information one day about Edgar Cayce and Atlantis and I found you! :D I really enjoy reading your entries and find myself reading and re-reading everything you have here.. Love it! So, the other day I was talking to a friend and was a bit conflicted. He mentioned that not once does “Jesus” get mentioned when referencing the “New Age movement”.. In that, he doesn’t know who is behind these notions of lets say, Law of Attraction, or Living in the Now, etc. etc. So, I was a bit conflicted by that because he used to be all about researching Osho and everything that he lumps into “New Age” now, which includes channeling (the Seth readings, Abraham-Hicks, Bashar via Darryl Anka, etc.), crystals, psychic readings, etc. etc. So, I guess my question is, how do we know what is right and what is wrong? If reading these books, researching about law of attraction, etc. is “evil” and not information that is of Jesus and the church, but we are learning about it with good and pure intentions, does that still put us in the wrong? Will we not be “saved”? Honestly, I don’t know much about religion, but feel like the information out there about this so called “New Age Stuff” is positive and I wanted to see what your take on it was.. I might sound naive and I hope I don’t offend anyone, but it made me question my “faith” and I have always thought I was in the right (but his views made me question myself, which scared me).  (VanessaM)

I’m almost jokingly tempted to write, “Yes, Vanessa, there is a Jesus in what you are learning about.”  But, I won’t.

You’re questions are good questions to ask.  To answer them, go back to much of what Jesus said at different times.

I’ll preface all of this with the statements that like any system of beliefs, what is called “New Age Thought”, is many times used to lump so many different beliefs under one name.  Since that is what we have to work with, I’ll go with it, even though some of the beliefs of the “New Age” have been around longer than many versions of today’s religions.

Let’s take a look at Jesus’ ministry.  During that time, his message was overwhelmingly about how we behave towards one another.  There is no mistaking this.  The first two commandments he gave were about love.  Love God above all else, and Love your neighbor as yourself.  His admonition to know who was a follower of His, was along the same lines, when he directed that we will know one another by our demonstration of the Fruits of the Spirit – the fruits being loving kindness, mercy, patience, charity, brotherhood, compassion, cooperation, forgiveness, understanding, faith, and more.

At the same time, I’ll mention that Jesus did not condemn other religions – he condemned hypocrisy and self-serving agendas.  Even though he walked among the Romans, he never condemned the Romans or that they had different beliefs.  In fact, John, the Baptist, also didn’t condemn the Roman’s beliefs, but instead said to the Romans, to be honest in their dealings as Romans.  John did condemn some actions which were also self-serving.

We can look at every religion, and hold to the same questions that you have.  How do we tell who is sincere in their following God?  The answer I adhere to is whether they practice what they preach.  If we want to label one religion as the only right one, or any religion over any other, then I think we”re missing Jesus’ message – that the main question we need to ask ourselves isn’t about what we believe, as it is what we do with our beliefs.  Do we use our beliefs to bring brotherhood, harmony, kindness, forgiveness, mercy or understanding in dealing with the people in our lives?  Or do we use our believes as weapons against others, bringing separation, condemnation or hatred into ours and others lives?  Do we use our beliefs to unite one another, sowing peace instead of war, or do we use our beliefs to go to war, attacking others in some way?

For the most part, every religion I can think of has the ability to bring more peace to this world, but every religion also gets used to bring war into this world.

That which we believe lies inside the mind and is a belief system (called a paradigm,) but how we live, demonstrate and activate our beliefs, comes from the heart.  If we hold forgiveness, patience, kindness in our heart, our beliefs are in line with the one who said “Love one another, as I have loved you.”  However, if we choose to hold criticism, bitterness, resentment, hatred, vengeance, prejudice, contention or separation, in our hearts, no paradigm of beliefs will ever counter that using any rationality or logic.  Our life simply will not be one of Love.

Like every religion or any other way of believing – whether it be science, math, psychology, philosophy, politics or anything – they all have adherents who go both ways with regards to their hearts, and therefore their beliefs.  Those who wish to use any of these beliefs to serve their own judgements and condemnations, supporting their own agendas will find ways to do that within the paradigm/belief system they’ve chosen.  Those who wish to use any of these beliefs to love more, support brother and sisterhood, be more forgiving, understanding, or kind, also will find ways to do that within their own paradigm/belief systems.

As it is said, “God seeks mercy, not sacrifice.”  We don’t need to sacrifice any belief we have that we feel brings us to love more and then demonstrate love more.  Know that what a person has in their heart, is what guides a person in how they show themselves to the world.

If any of us find our beliefs changing as time goes on, then wouldn’t it be harmonious to let those new beliefs help us to love God more, also?  And then to Love our neighbor as ourselves more?

Every way of believing has the potential for Christ to be a part of and to come forth from within it.  Why? Because, His message was “Love one another, as I have loved you.” and we can bring this forth in any setting or context using any language or ideology.  It depends on us, and how we manifest our beliefs.

There are some that go around professing the name of Jesus Christ to anyone within earshot.  They will make sure their beliefs are known to those around them.  And they wear Jesus’ name on their sleeve, as if only saying the name is all that’s needed to live in our world.

There are others that quietly go around doing acts of kindness to someone who is beaten down by life’s circumstances. They extend patience and help to others who are struggling with the burdens they’re carrying.  They show mercy to those that are suffering in darkness, and understanding and compassion to someone who needs a friend in a moment of pain.  They don’t speak loudly the name of Christ, so everyone can know about them, but they do pray quietly within their own hearts for those they know could use a helping prayer.

Which one do you think actually knows the real Jesus Christ?

I will say this truly – Jesus Christ lives inside the act of kindness, not the act of criticism.  Christ lives inside the act of compassion and understanding towards another and not speeches of judging others.  If we find kindness, understanding and compassion in people, it will be these people that live with Christ.  When we practice the kindness, the understanding and compassion for people, Christ will live within us.  Then and only then will those beliefs we choose for ourselves be ours that connect us directly to Christ.

Finally, I’ll let you in on a secret.  No one is so bad, that there is not some good in them – some kindness, some forgiveness, some understanding of another, etc. and hence with Christ inside them. And no one is so good, that there is not some bad in them – some lack of understanding, some prejudice, some contention, some bitterness – which causes Christ to be set aside.

Q & A’s: US Dollar and California Water

Do you see independence from the US dollar as important over this period, through precious metals or other DIY methods? For instance, there was hyperinflation or pronounced inflation in the 1930′s.

That won’t be a strong concern.  For investment purposes, precious metals will be a good investment, but to rely on for currency and tender, no, I see it not being necessary.  I’m seeing a resurgence in bartering though, in twenty years.  Some of that is happening now, but I see it surge.  I don’t see it taking a majority hold, but rather it becoming popular.  Remember, this is 20 years from now and not a lot of change happens on the whole in only 20 years in the currency arena.

Even as I write this and see it being mostly true, I’m reminded that in other ways 20 years can see major change — 1985 -2005 saw some of the biggest changes this planet will see, with the explosion of computers and the internet.

I’m concerned about the comments you made about the drought in California. Do you see it continuing in severity over the next 5 years or somehow rectifying itself within that period of time? Part of the problem is our wasteful use of water. Do you see the Colorado River going back to its full levels or continuing to fall?

I see the drought continuing at the severity level at which it is at.  In the next 5 years, I only see 2017 as being a year of some rain – or rather the end of 2016 – beginning of 2017.  I also see 2017 being a year of even more wildfires than the two previous.  Not a good prediction, but I see California not backing down from dealing with this.  I see the people who fight wildfires being ready and facing them head-on.

I see the Colorado River very slowly continuing to fall in the next two years, but cycling back up after that.  Through this decade, it will be down and up and down and up.  I don’t see a time in this generation that it will return to where it was in the decades of the 20th century.  I do see greater and better steps being taken to have wise use of water and a lot less wastefulness.

***

We are in the times and half times, and this is a time of tribulation, as we see from this past winter and the current extreme weather patterns.  We can call it what we want to – man-made or nature-made, but it is a difficult and hard time like a woman going through labor.

I believe in the Spirit that lives inside the hearts, minds and souls of the people of this nation.  Within these hearts exists the capacity for going beyond our journey so far.  Within these minds exist the constructive ideas leading ways to cooperate and help one another.

Yes, this Spirit resides in the hearts, minds and souls of all people on this planet.  It is this Spirit that will help us as we face  challenges both on the planetary and national levels, as well as on the individual level.  It may sound corny to some, but I believe in this Spirit.

Right now, the latest predictions have been somewhat on the dire side, but there certainly are many, many positive, encouraging and inspirational factors in the future, also.  The questions have mostly been about what to watch out for, because this last winter, which is still in progress, has been one where people would fair better if they knew and could prepare for the difficult parts.
