Move the light gradually upward, out, beyond time and space. Then move the light into the sky and from there to the point you have chosen to be your destination. Let the light descend at its destination, allow yourself to look around, picking up thoughts, feelings, visions, and voices. Return using the same process. When you have come back to the starting point, make notes on what you sensed. Callers reach out to Barbara and she analyzes their life in the coming year based on their birthday and voice.
