2012 and The Shift

2012 and The Shift by Owen Waters ===============Will the world end in 2012? Not at all. It will, however, mark the dawn of a new era in human progress and development. Like the dawning of a new day, this transition to a new era will seem gradual, not sudden, to those passing through it. However, when future generations look back, 2012 will be seen to have been a pivot point around which humanity turned and headed in a different direction. Many prophecies have indicated a period of chaos and confusion in the years leading up to the Winter Solstice of 2012. This is understandable as the agendas of the old order rush for completion and resolution before the old cycles end. Old issues, suppressed for years, will bubble up to the surface demanding attention and resolution. Once the cycles of the ancient Mayan Calendars reset to zero, the old patterns will end and the way will be clear for new patterns to be established with the energy of the new cycles. In the meantime, the best way to handle difficult times is to be centered and resist the temptation to be drawn into dramas and conflicts, most of which are due to other people working through their "stuff." Being in the now and focusing on what is - not what could be, or shouldn't be, or what might be fear-inducing - provides the key to sanity in a world full of increasing stress. The grand 5,125-year cycle of the Mayan calendars consists of five interwoven cycles. The first cycle breaks the 5,125 years up into 13 parts. Then, there are 20 parts within each of the 13. Then, another 20-part division occurs to produce Mayan 'years,' each of which consist of 18 'months' of 20 days each. On December 21st, 2012, all five of these cycles reset to zero, for the first time in 5,125 calendar years, as the Mayan date The Maya understood and tracked even more cycles than these five - 17 different calendar cycles in all, some of which spanned more than 10 million years. One is the precession of the equinoxes cycle of 25,920 years, which is caused by the slow wobbling of the earth on its axis. This cycle, which was also identified by Plato, is divided into the twelve astrological ages. December 21st, 2012, coincidentally, also marks the exact transition into the 2,160-year Age of Aquarius. Yet another cycle, that of four times the 25,920-year cycle, also resets on that date. The Shift to heart-centered consciousness is a global event which is playing out today. Every year that goes by, more and more people come to understand the new consciousness and shift into that heart-space which is the backbone of the New Reality. The new consciousness will flower in the Age of Aquarius, but it started before that age is due to fully dawn. The new consciousness will expand and spread much more quickly after the Winter Solstice of 2012, but it has already been developing in earnest since the pioneering days of the mid 1960s. So, the timing of The Shift is not strictly cycle-related. It is happening today regardless of any cycles. It is happening because people have reached critical mass in their spiritual evolution and because now is the time for humanity to graduate from the old school of life. The Shift is the spiritual and creative awakening of humanity. This New Reality consciousness opens the door to new vistas of awareness and new levels of creativity. In the dawning New Reality, people follow their hearts to express their inner joy through making their own meaningful contributions towards a better world. We are in the midst of the biggest cultural shift of all times. The Shift to the New Reality is happening today and it is unstoppable. The start of new cosmic time cycles on December 21st, 2012 will be the dawn of a new era where humanity will accelerate towards heart-centered consciousness on a global scale.*If you enjoyed today's article, please forward it to a friend.
