2012, what’s it all about? Let me say now that I do not believe that the world will end in 2012. Nor do I believe there will be any significant events. But I do believe that we are in a time of quantum change. A change in human consciousness in which we all have a part to play. However to understand that possibility it is necessary to have some understanding of the vast array of information that surrounds this time in our evolution. The subject is vast and the amount on the internet overwhelming. According to the prophecies of many indigenous peoples across Asia, North & South America, Africa and Australasia something is due to happen now…
The most topical is the ending of the Mayan Calendar. The Maya lived around 1500 years ago in what is now Mexico, Belize, and Guatemala. They were preceded by the Olmecs and succeeded by the Aztecs. They seemed to have appeared from nowhere and then vanished 500 years later. As stargazers they created the most accurate galactic clock we had prior to the atomic clock. They studied the stars and their calendar follows the passage of our solar system around the galactic centre. This calendar ends on 21.12.2012 hence all the prophecies. The Mayans believed that the centre of time and space would be revealed when the big calendar ends with the galactic alignment. The Mayan Calendar is basically a galactic clock that tracts the rare celestial alignment of our sun and our planet within the galactic centre over a 26,000 year period. It began in 3114 BC, at the same time as the Egyptian Hieroglyphs started.
Since 1980 the sun has been crossing the equator of our galaxy. On the 21.12.2012 our planet and our sun will be in direct alignment with the centre of our galaxy and, some say, the Universe. At the centre of our Milky Way galaxy is a quasar, which emits types of radio waves; gamma rays, electromagnetic rays, cosmic dust etc from which suns and planets are formed, like a dormant volcano that, occasionally becomes active and spews forth ‘stuff’. NASA says we are a dormant galaxy, others say last time the quasar was active was 13,000 years ago. It possibly lasted 1000 years. From earth it is said it would probably have looked like an eye. Some refer to it as the womb of the world and it may have given raise to the many Goddess myths about the birth of creation.
This process has spawned a number of theories and ideas, some positive and some negative giving rise to fear mongering, the most common of these relate to pole shifts, sunspots, Armageddon, alien encounters and a purging of humans on earth by Mother Nature herself. But despite the amount of media attention the ‘negative spin’ around this date gets, upon further inspection the ancestral wisdoms and a growing majority of softly spoken, but powerful voices speak of a much more interesting and positive conclusion…this dates marks a time of change, offering new opportunities to humankind. And these opportunities include; a leap in quantum consciousness and evolving intelligence and interaction with the source of all life itself….
In 1909 British physicist Geoffrey Ingrave Taylor discovered that the mere presence of consciousness affects the way quantum particles behave. There is the famous occasion when two scientists watched the same experiment, the one who expected to see a wave saw a wave and the person who expected a particle saw a particle. Our world is a result of our quantum beliefs, loves, fears, and judgments. “We change our reality when we change the way we think and believe . So by changing the focus of our awareness we actually change our reality.” (Hugh Everett III, 1957). Albert Einstein said, “You cannot solve any problem in the same state of consciousness in which it was created.” But we can change our individual states of consciousness and thus our reality, in very simple ways. Think about what is missing in your life. What do you want? How do you feel? Now think about what you have in your life. How do you feel? You have changed your state of consciousness in a moment. You have changed the way you feel and what you have chosen to think about. You have taken action that has affected you for the better.
Many believe that current human consciousness is an unnatural state of separation, a ‘me’ and ‘not me’. The source of thought within us is separate from everything else. Because we feel cut off, we then want, we notice a lack, and from a place of lack we want more or need more or hoard more and thus stop flow. But we can change the focus of our awareness and thus change our reality. What is it we want? What makes us happy? Is it money? Is it being in control? Is it being right? Is it to be a captain of industry? Is it to be in a relationship? Or is it to be successful? But what is success to you… For example if you want a relationship what it is the quality you expect to receive from it. Presumably love, but that can come in many different ways, such as a baby, or a puppy, not just in a relationship.
Liberation of mind from its attachments, i.e. beliefs and need to control etc, is just the first step. Sense of I-ness, sense of self, is just an illusion, like the world being flat. The more we learn, the more our perception of reality changes. Mystics recognise that the concept of the unique self is an illusion and that a separate ‘me’ is a fantasy – we, along with everything else, are interconnected. So we begin to realise we are awareness, consciousness and presence. We can search and have our own mystical experience. Then we remember we have to pay the mortgage and we fall back into old patterns and feelings of lack.
We are the consciousness in which thoughts take place and we are the consciousness that take the actions. So, by changing our thoughts, we can change our actions and thus we change our reality. As we enter the wisdom age. Something, a new single spiritual philosophy is being distilled from all spiritual wisdoms. Things happen faster, people are awakening and awakening can be sudden - who would have predicted the collapse of Communism. Interestingly enough apparently at that time the magnetic resonances of the Earth in northern Europe were very low. Look at the growth of the current wave of spirituality – individuals’ need to search for better answers. Discontent with the way our lives are and the way world is going. We feel that there must be more to life than this.
So where does leave us? Did the Maya just vanish? Or did they manage to raise their vibration enough to just disappear i.e. transcend to the 4th dimension? Is 2012 going to be the end of the world as suggested in the recent Hollywood blockbusters? Or is this a window of opportunity for evolution? Is it a choice point when we can individually and collectively transform our selves and our world? Are we wise enough to grasp this opportunity and emerge into our greater potentiality? Do we now break down or break through? Perhaps the vast majority is being woken. Perhaps this leap in consciousness will wake us up so we break through into the next step of evolution. That is, if we don’t want to destroy ourselves like cultures before us. Will you take ownership of your part in our collective future? The responsibility belongs to us all. As we work with our individual reality and perception of our world and ourselves, as we let go of the misconceptions, beliefs and fears that hold us back from living our true potential, perhaps we will tip the scales into creating peace in our world and in our lifetimes.
If we have the will, we also have the way. My Living with Soul work is one. There are many tools and techniques to raise your consciousness and vibrations. Just as there are many different ways to God none are better than any other. They are all as different and unique as each of the cells in our bodies. Together they make one being. Do we have the courage, the determination and the wisdom, to become the best we can be, individually and thus ensuring our survival? I believe 2012 is a window of opportunity for evolution, a collective transformation, a choice point, and I firmly believe we all have the power and the responsibility to create our own new world. We just need to do it.
