Ancient Knowledge Ancient cultures foretold this great shift in consciousness many, many years ago. The Mayans & Egyptians both spoke of a shifting of world ages that would take place beginning around the year 2012. This is why such great amount of attention was put towards December 21st 2012 by many over the past couple of years. It wasn’t to say that on that day, something would happen instantly, but rather, it was the hinge point of a greater change that would take place over several years. The Mayans and Egyptians used astrology to determine these cycles and it is clear their knowledge was correct given that we can verify their astrological explanations through advanced technology we have today. They essentially stated that every 26,000 years or so, the earth moves into a new World Age. Our previous world age, the one that ended in late 2012, was characterized by separation, scarcity, survivalism and materialism. This is why the world that we saw, and are still seeing, was so much based around every man for themselves, greed, power, destruction and so on. It was the state of consciousness humanity was in during that period and it provided us with a series of powerful lessons for us to move forward. Now we have stepped into the beginning of a new world age. The Mayans and Egyptians call it ‘The Aquarian Age.’ This age is characterized by peace, unity, community, and harmony. This essentially states that humanity is now in a period of transition where the way we structure our world will be based around these new ideals. It is not something we simply will start creating new rules with, but it is something that is coming from within each of us. This is why we are seeing such an upheaval in our world. Millions of people’s consciousness’ are already transitioning into a new state of being, making the old obsolete which is why we are seeing the crumbling and collapsing of our old world. Protests, unrest, lack of peace, instability in our world structures, the rise of new solutions, and feelings from within that it is time for things to change, are all signs of our old world collapsing.
Spiritual View From a spiritual view, we can see clear links between what the Mayans and science is saying and what is happening in our world now. Many in the spiritual community claim a shift in consciousness is taking place. Much of this wisdom comes from an inner knowing that follows a feeling that something isn’t quite right with our world. While stigma’s towards spirituality make it challenging for people to relate to, a spiritual understanding of what is happening is realizing we have an awareness beyond the physical body and the mind, and it is driving feelings of change. One of the most suppressed aspects of each human is the relationship they have with their inner self or higher self. This may sound foreign when reading this, but that is due to how disconnected we have truly become from our own being-ness. One of the great transformations we are going through is the process of reawakening to or re-connecting to our higher self or true self. This self can be seen as who we truly are. Currently, human ego has been at the forefront of driving our world. Ideas of who we think we are, separation, competition, greed, power and survivalism, has been sitting in the drivers seat for centuries and has created a world that reflects these ideals. It is important to realize is, this is not who we truly are, nor is it our true nature and many people are realizing this. As we shift from having our ego and false sense of self from being in the driver seat, and we begin to connect with our hearts, inner knowing and true understanding of who we are, our perception, priorities, beliefs, and understandings about our world all change as we are no longer seeing through our social conditioning and learned behaviours.
