In the first half, Founder and Director of the Trends Research Institute, Gerald Celente, talked about emerging trends for 2019, and what he sees on the horizon for the US. Though the stock market may temporarily boost back up, this year will see a global slowdown, a veritable "Economic 9/11," he declared. Banking and finance stocks have already been hard hit, such as Deutsche, Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, and Goldman Sachs losing significant value, and home sales and prices are also down in many markets. He foresees migration continuing to be a significant issue, with millions of desperate people fleeing their homelands looking for a better future.
Comparing the current time period to the end of Prohibition in 1933, Celente noted that the legalization of marijuana in many states and the new federal Farm Bill legalizing hemp will open the floodgates of explosive growth for both the marijuana and hemp industries encompassing recreational, industrial and medicinal fields, as well as providing substantial tax booms. Blockchain technology (developed for cryptocurrency) could be utilized for such things as election voting and help put the future back for "we the people," he added.
Rev. Dr. Erin Fall Haskell is a Doctor of Divinity, teaching Universal Law and spirituality. In the latter half, she discussed how to live one's spiritual truth, manifest dreams, and live with increased vitality. The primary reason we're here is to experience and develop our consciousness, she cited, so it's important to set goals to measure this progress. Many illnesses and psychological issues that hold us back have their root in limiting beliefs, and how one views their reality, she suggested.
We have a lot of programming in our heads, and "suffering is always about a gap between accepting people, places, and things as they are, versus what we wish they were, and that gap," she continued, "can be really huge for some people." Working with clients, she practices "birthing their truth," a kind of spiritual midwifery that reveals their power, passion, uniqueness, and purpose. Going with the flow and letting go of attachments can indirectly serve to attract positive energy and manifestations, she shared.
