What will be in 2018? Local psychics make their predictions
The year 2017 was, for some, a curveball. From devastating natural disasters to real-life headlines that echoed The Onion, let’s all be real, we did not expect the unexpected. The first month of 2018 is almost over and thanks to some local psychics, we may be able to better prepare ourselves for what is to come in 2018. (Note that these predictions cannot be backed up as fact by any science and we are not promoting them as such. But just for fun, here are four local psychics’ predictions for 2018 nationally, locally and abroad.)
Alexis Edison, a spiritual advisor in Greensboro, said she is from Rodos, Greece, and she has been psychic ever since she was a young girl. Edison said 2017 was the year of clarity.
“It was all about being clear on your visions and what you want. It was kind of hard year ‘cause it was all about coming clear on your visions and your goals.”
For 2018, (which she said actually starts in mid-February) she said all of that clarity will begin blooming, and it will be the year of collaboration. She said people will collaborate to start their own groups. The loyalty within each group will be key; however, this loyalty will create separation among people in different groups. She predicts that people will become sick all of the sudden with breathing issues, which can be attributed to chemicals (for example, from vaping) and that people will be more conscious about what they put in their bodies.
“They are going to go inwards and do what feels good for them,” she said. “But they are going to go outwards on their knowledge. If somebody knows something, they are going to feel great about giving their knowledge and putting it out.”
Locally, she predicts that people will approach spirituality without the “religious aspects of it.” She also said that there will be a lot more movements locally, specifically the local farmers market movement. “The local farmers will gain more power,” she said. “Because a lot of people are going to say they want to shop locally and buy local food.” In town, Edison said women will collaborate more but not against men like she said they did in 2017. “Their main focus is going to be ‘how can we bring this community higher, what can we do to help out more people and create more wealth, more togetherness?’” She said women will lead by this example and that men will follow.
Politically, Edison predicts that people will focus their attention and energy not on those in power, but within themselves. Additionally, she said people are not going to let the chaos of the power struggle affect them. “If it does not affect you it does not affect you. People are going to be more awakened by that; they are going to turn more into their communities.”
Abroad, she predicts that Europe will “continue to be messy and that the Middle East will continue to be filled with chaos.” However, she said that chaos will weed out the bad and that there will be some good that comes out of it.
Finally, she predicts that people are going to get into more in-depth conversations with each other. She said 2017 was a tough year for a lot of people. “We were out there, we were lost, and it was so fiery. Now, it is going to be calmer, and people are going to seek for deeper conversation, meanings and relationships.”
Grace Williams (or Mrs. Grace) said she has been a psychic palm reader for over 40 years. She said she has been at her same shop, located at 4135 Spring Garden St. for over 40 years as well. Williams said she was born in Danville, Virginia, grew up in Florida and moved to Greensboro. She realized she was psychic when she was 6 or 7 years old, and now she specializes in all matters of life. Williams said President Trump has a big job ahead of him.
“So far, he is doing great,” she said. “If he keeps up what he is doing, he is doing the country a very good job, in all matters.” She said Trump is “cleaning up the swamp, and he is doing a very good job.” She predicts that financially, things are doing well, but it is going to drop again.
“The economy got better, but in about three months from now, I think it is going to drop a little.”
Locally, Williams said the city is not doing a good job with the water supply and she said the water needs to be taken better care of for health reasons. She said the same goes with food. “They need to monitor where we are getting our food from for health reasons,” she said. She also said people need to be more conscious of what they are eating because that is what is getting them sick with illnesses such as cancer. She said people need to start cooking their own food as well, instead of just relying on fast food.
She predicts that the crime rate will increase because of newcomers to Greensboro. She said people are learning to do without God more than ever now and that it is very important that people be religious, specifically Christians. “Because God is so important to have in your life,” she said. “And they are just taking God out of everything, out of everywhere, out of the United States. That is why America is going down because God is not in it.”
She said that beings from other planets are visiting Earth, but the government will not release any information on that and the media is hiding it.
“The news only tells the people what they need to hear,” she said. “They don’t tell the people the truth. All news is fake news.”
If you want to know more specifically what Williams sees for your future, she is doing a special for the new year until the end of January. She said her complete readings, which are usually $35 each, are all on special for $5. “If you want to see what is coming up for the new year, as far as relationships, as far as your careers, as far as your finances, families, sicknesses, whatever is going on in people’s lives right now.”
Alicia Gaynor of Sacred Light Synergy in Greensboro calls herself a Shaman and energetic healer. However, she said she hates the word “healer” and likes to view herself as a tool for spirits to use. She said Shamans are the oldest healing modalities.
She started studying shamanic healing eight years ago in Liverpool, New York. She then started working with her mentor Chris Krohn, of creatyourdreams.com in Apex, North Carolina. “My lineage is the Peruvian Shamans, the Q’ero Shamans and that goes through Alberto Villoldo, he’s written tons of books on being a Shaman, and he has an academy for Westerners trying to learn this and pass it through.”
She said shamanic healing deals with the chakra system, which she said functions as receivers and transmitters of energy. Gaynor said that although she does not make predictions, she is empathic. For 2018, she believes that people will focus on uncovering what they need to work on so that they can go into the world and create the way for themselves. She believes that people need to clear themselves of their triggers in 2018.
“We all have different paths, and they are all perfect and they are all right and whatever gets us to where we’re actually rid of all of the junk so we can be the creators we’re supposed to be,” Gaynor said. “That is the biggest thing, and I think that is going to happen.”
As for world events, and politically Gaynor said she believes things are going to get worse before they get better. “I only say that due to the fact that we are uncovering a lot of stuff that needs to be healed in our country right now. Depending on where anyone’s beliefs lie, here or there, there is a lot of anger and a lot of hurt, there is a lot of rage, and it is bubbling up so it can be healed.”
Locally, Gaynor believes that there will be more expansion in 2018, and as spring approaches she said there will be more involvement among people locally. She said she believes people will want to come together, find their niche in groups and be more present. “I am just hoping that more and more people do their work for them and just realize that we can make things better but it starts with self. A lot of people will see what is happening in the world and want to go and fight this cause somewhere else. Until we conquer the stuff that is in us, then we can fight those other causes.”
Carolyn Hill is a psychic and tarot reader who lives in Burlington but does readings once a month at Eclectic By Nature, located at 414 State St. in Greensboro. Hill said she has been doing readings for 22 years. She said 2018 is a master year. “You want to put your energy into things that you do well because it is a year for mastery. It is a great year to focus on strengths.” She said partnerships, collaboration, and love are all favored in 2018. Nationally, Hill predicts that there won’t be any big hurricanes like there were in 2017. However, she said there will be a couple category three hurricanes as well as more wildfires in September and October. She said there will be tornadoes in odd places, such as the East Coast. She said flooding in May will be particularly bad this year but not in this area. She also predicts in September and October there will be some “in-country terrorism.” Hill predicts that the market will start to decline in April, and again at the end of the year. Toward the end of the year, there will be a more abrupt adjustment in the stock market. Politically, she predicts that it is going to be crazy around election day. “I do feel like Donald Trump will be in office at the end of 2018, I am not so sure he is going to make it to the end of 2019.” She predicts that Robert Mueller’s investigation will continue, but there will be an attempt to fire Mueller that the public will not be aware of. “I don’t think the Russian investigation will wrap up this year, but when it does wrap up, I think we are going to see 65 or more people indicted.” Even though she predicts this year will be filled with tension with North Korea, she does not feel like there will be war. “There is something with Kim Jong-un,” she said. “In three to five years, he is gone. I don’t know why.” Locally, Hill believes the grassroots movements are going to be strong in 2018 and that there will be a blue wave in local politics. She believes that minorities, women and others who have not held office before will be elected because she said people are tired of the current structure. According to the tarot cards, she said “the Seven Of Swords” card represents 2018. “It is going to look like things are hopeless at times this year, but the Seven Of Swords is all about deception. There is a lot of deception right now, and it is going to be really important in 2018 for people to find their truth.”
She said for those to find their truth, “you have to get the facts and find how they fit in your own life.” She said to watch what people do, not what they say they are going to do.
