Q. I would like Lynn to look at this. I've written pretty frankly before about the modern surge of orthodox Islam globally, and how it has infiltrated Europe and seems unstoppable, even though many are now no longer afraid to speak out about their concerns. It's rigid, domineering tendencies are getting worse, not better. I have wondered what the awakening energies are doing to the hearts and minds of those trapped in these self-segregating communities, obediently living according to a 7th century mindset, as if the Enlightenment never happened. Is there going to be a mass awakening in Islam too? I feel at some point it is inevitable, as what children are indoctrinated with goes against everything they meet in everyday life. The current trends can't go on much longer without something having to give. There seem to be so many who have cognitive dissonance about the dogma versus the reality, defensiveness about that worldview that obviously doesn't work. I read another psychic's prediction that millions of Muslims will start abandoning the faith (along with the many others awakening, already mentioned)
What do you see about the direct of the Muslim world, Lynn?
A. When I focus on this, I see an image of spiderwebs all over the word. I get this is symbolic of how the religion reaches out (like figures), with the centralized portion of the "web" being where the religion holds the most strength. The edges look to weaken, and fizzle out due to the continued influence of other cultures and religions. Muslims keep the belief system strong in the central hubs (because they block the influences of the outside world), but as people branch out, their minds open and become curious about other ideas.
Q. How would that awakening play out, and how would it change the countries and geopolitics?
A. Three things look to emerge. I see some people keeping their faith while assimilating and respecting the ideals around them. They keep and practice their belief in private.
Some people leave their faith to adopt other belief systems. If someone decides to leave the belief, they look to be shunned and sort of bullied physically and / or passive aggressively (I actually feel fear for these people). It looks easier to covert TO their belief system rather then leave it peacefully.
Others are very deep in their belief and fulfill the practice to the best of their ability regardless of who or what is happening. This is strongest in the center of the "hubs" or "spiderwebs."
I see centralized pockets of Muslims that refuse to assimilate (or form a mutual respect with other people of varying beliefs) forming their own community. They look to pull back more and more until some kind of segregation forms. It looks to create a lot of havoc within the countries, which in turn creates a lot of social unrest.
Q. Will it start to wither in the same way as Christian denominations have, or will the Islamic groups try to 'take' the Vatican somehow?
A. I do not see any kind of "take over,: I would not say it withers away, the religion very much stays alive, but it looks to regroup back to their central "hubs."
Q. Are things going to become even more rigid and jihad-ish, to try and control anyone who want to be free? I don't mean terrorism here, just the breed-and-dominate enclave pattern that is causing such alarm in Europe? Inside the Islamic enclaves the pressure to conform is immense. In the eighties the people who I knew from Muslim families were so free and agnostic. I've been very depressed at the Saudification that has happened since then.
A. The centralized locations of this belief system look to have very rigid guidelines pertaining to how people need to live, and there are punishments if you go against that belief. The punishments can be very harsh (physically and emotionally). There is a subtle influence of fear because as the religion is put to the test (both with scrutiny and also influences that draw people away) and people are leaving, there is a fear of their religion losing
And that is all I have for this reading. I will say that I did find this reading a bit challenging (my emotions and empathic side kept trying to override). Lots of feelings came through during this. I'm happy to answer questions in comments on things I didn't "see" clearly the first time. Thank you. Love and light-
