Samuel uses the first day of 2017 to briefly review 2016 and discuss the amazing changes that are available in 2017. His discussion topics include: the difference between resolutions based on spiritual activities and those based on emotional, mental, or physical ones; a simple but thought-provoking exercise using the gratitudes of 2016 to create the wisdom for 2017; preparing for and using the energy transmissions during the first three months of 2017; the world-changing energy transmissions coming at the summer solstice—how to prepare for them and what they can bring; why the energy coming at the August 21 full solar eclipse causes Samuel to call 2017 the Year of the Phoenix—the Rebirth; and the nature of the energy transmissions that have been coming to the planet since 2012.
