Predictions For Year 2016

In the study of numerology, Year 2016 (2+0+1+6 = 9) is considered the Year of 9. This number is considered a very special number as out of the numbers 1 to 9, only 9 gives a summation equal to its own, when multiplied by any of the other remaining eight numbers. E.g. 2×9 = 18 and 1+8= 9 . 8×9=72 and 7+2=9. Even the compass bearing of a complete circle of 360 degrees (3+6+0=9) is a factor of 9!

The 9 in numerology connotes the theme of Completion or Finality. In addition, this number is said to be associated with humanitarian causes. What this implies is that a cycle of times is coming to an end. From a spiritual point of view, anything that does not serve the highest good for humanity, will continue to surface for humans to deal with, be it poor governance/administration or immoral/unethical activities ( not unlike 2015’s Volkswagen emission cheating). As such, this year carries a strong potential for closure or resolution, or a change in our lifestyle/attitudes.

The information that I gathered from numerologist Allison Baughman; psychic mediums Joseph Tittel, Linda & Terry Jamison and divine channeler, Lee Carroll from their predictions for Year 2016 is the possible recurrence of earthquakes/tsunami, sink holes, extreme weather cycles (of drought, storms, typhoons, flooding) as well as plots for individual & group terrorist attacks around the world. Freaky automobile accidents , sea and air disasters, sadly were predicted too and we have been advised to exercise caution when travelling this year.

Apart from that, other major dramatic events will very likely unfold. However, Joseph who has made accurate predictions in the past (e.g. Japan’s tsunami of Year 2011) was quick to emphasize that things are often not what they seem to be. Frequently, such events are initially viewed with fear, frustration or disgust, but we’re asked to try to discern the possible underlying reasons. Some events may revolve around the exposure of scandals as well as long withheld secrets (e.g. by governments, corporations, religious bodies). As such, it is forecast that there will be many cases of public outrage, civil unrest and demonstrations. Another channeler of divine messages, Daryl Anka also highlighted that something impactful will indeed happen this year, and the major changes that follow in subsequent years thereafter will have its origins in 2016.

Allison’s opinion for this year, coincides with Lee Carroll’s divine channeling years ago, that events that happen this year will compel humanity to take action. In other words, no one can be unaffected anymore. Sitting on the sidelines won’t seem to be a plausible option . Also, because of the far-reaching effects, she feels more people are likely to be unbalanced and some will go to extremes in their behavior. She hopes people will stay positive, grounded and help each other when it matters, as the energy of 9 also rewards those who are benevolent, in the long run.

Oddly, apart from compiling 2016 predictions from other people, I had an impulse to obtain an oracle card message for humanity from Archangel Michael for the very first time. (Note: In the past, I have done many card readings for people with that angel’s help, but it’s always about personal messages and never on a global scale.) For the said purpose, I used a deck called Angel Tarot Cards, and the card that came up was Major Arcana Card No. 20 entitled ‘RENEWAL’ . The key message says that we are at a crossroads / near the end / on the threshold of making an important change! The card prompts us to review what needs to be transformed, healed or released. Looking at these messages, it seems very consistent with that from the aforementioned information by others.

On a positive tone, predictions have also been made that there will be more advanced technology introduced this year. One of the fields that will benefit from it, is the medical line, where non-invasive / non-surgical procedures are said to be introduced, that will help eliminate the risks of surgery. There might also be some progress in the technology of sea water desalination.

Despite most of the above predictions sounding very ominous, Lee Carroll has mentioned before that it is somewhat akin to pruning a tree. Things may look ugly before it gets better. As such, I believe tolerance, compassion and perseverance are the 3 key ingredients to cross this threshold of Recalibration of humanity. In summary, this Year of 9 seems to be an imperative year for tying loose ends and that may necessitate reviewing things (e.g. career, relationships, governance, laws, belief systems) from a higher vantage point. Possibly, everyone needs to take a long hard look at why things happen as they do and see unfolding events as opportunities for our input to make living on Earth fairer, kinder, more harmonious and sustainable. The era of being a passive observer and blindly accepting information from ‘people in power’ as truths, is slowly fading away. It has been shared by many gifted and intuitive people, that business (personal or global) CANNOT be as usual, as the energy of these times does not support status quo, especially if there is no integrity or honesty. Lessons not acknowledged now, will likely repeat themselves and may appear more frequently in various circumstances.

… And this will then lead to a new cycle in Year 2017 (2+0+1+7=10 & 1+0=1) , the Year of 1 that spells new beginnings…another step towards the Ascension of Humanity to Unity Consciousness.


[Note: As mentioned in my e-book , Passion For Truths, released years ago, the Arab Spring of Year 2011 that saw the fall of many dictators in the Middle East, will lead to something that is better despite the chaos perceived by many. Indeed some positive effect has come into fruition, as last year’s Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to the Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet, a small group of influential individuals who helped restore the democratic governance in Tunisia. The country has since adopted a new constitution. The Chairman of the Nobel Committee even described it as “the most egalitarian and democratic constitution in the Arab world”. Thus, Darkness can certainly be a seed for Light, and Year 2016 may just provide more of such seeds. ]

… And Why We Get Married

Many people in this world, have been brought up with this notion that there is need for one to get married when a person reaches adulthood. Girls, especially, have been fed with stories of how a man would someday be their romantic partner who will ‘complete’ their lives. Even till today, a lot of people are looking for their soul mates. My reiki healing cases have validated revelations from the Other Side that each person’s marriage or romantic life partner, fulfills a purpose that can be quite different from the aforesaid general opinion. Often it is about the life lessons that a soul has chosen to undergo when a person enters a marriage. Sometimes it’s about karma, especially when relationships are problematic. Many divorcees feel disillusioned or cheated that marriage isn’t what it was made up to be, by their parents or society.

World famous entertainer and divorcee, Jennifer Lopez who does not want to get remarried was quoted as saying –
“As girls, I think we are taught from a very young age that someone is going to bring us our happiness. Everybody that I met was going to be the guy I was going to spend my life with.

And then you realize. : ‘I am strong, I am my own keeper…my own saviour’. That has been the journey for me.”

Jennifer’s self-observation is a good testimony about how we should not stereotype marriages. I opine that the best reflection one could go through, when one is in a relationship, is to ask the question …

‘What can I learn from or contribute to this relationship?’

By going deep within our consciousness, our own inner wisdom can help us save ourselves from heartaches, if the relationship goes south. Apart from giving us emotional comfort, marriages also create for us many scenarios that serve different purposes, such as opportunities for :

Practicing tolerance and compassion,
Learning perseverance,
Supporting each other,
Being empathetic,
Building up courage (especially in an abusive relationship),
Working for a common cause, etc..

Many gifted mediums and psychics, have channeled consistent information that souls on the Other Side don’t get married , unlike humans, because they are aware that every single being is already part of the same family from Source. As such, they feel no need to create ‘loving relationships or bonds’ , because a benevolent relationship already exists with all of them. It is one that speaks of Unconditional Love, and not a relationship that is so fragile that an ego can shatter it easily by way of divorce. This is because, in the spiritual realm, souls cognize the meaning of Oneness and know that there is no separation between themselves.

And I believe, this is one of the greatest challenges on planet Earth. Incarnated souls like us, need to recover from spiritual amnesia and understand what relationships are for. Out of that comes growth in our character.

Much to learn from life’s experiences, there is…

Honoring Each Other
