I’ve been talking a bit on this website about different 2012 predictions and how this date could change our lives. Now it’s time that I tell you my own prophecy as to what is really going to happen, and what 2012 means for us all.
Bear in mind that this is all speculation. I’m not a trained psychic, and those who proclaim themselves to be experts on 2012, such as John Major Jenkins or Daniel Pinchbeck, still admit that they don’t know exactly what will happen on this date.
What I Think Will Happen On 2012
So what do I think will happen? It’s simple enough:
December 21, 2012 will arrive. People will eagerly awake the arrival of Planet X, the shifting of the poles, or a massive worldwide expansion of consciousness. As 11:11 draws closer, even the sceptics will start to get a little nervous. But the day will go on, no massive event will happen, and people will wake up on December 22 with no real change in their lives.
I don’t think anything noticeable will happen on 2012. However…
While no one is certain what actual events will occur in 2012 (if any) there is a general consensus that it will involve a shift in consciousness. So what do we mean when we say this? Essentially, it’s about a change in the way we see the world, the way we perceive reality. So let’s forget about the possible physical effects of 2012, which could be argued to be revealing themselves in global warming and increased levels of natural disasters, and look at the psychic impacts that have begun to take hold.
Is 2012 happening now?
Let’s look at the evidence. Consider how our outlook in life, our consciousness, has changed over the last twenty or so years:
- The rise of the Internet: With the internet, you can now find the news you want, listen to the music you want, watch the movies you want and read the books you want. This in turn has caused…
- The development of niches: Consider the popularity of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones or Elvis Presley. Can you imagine a group or musician having that kind of success today? It’s impossible to get that many people to like one thing. Now if you like rock music, you might like metal or hardcore or punk. If you just like metal, you might only like thrash metal or speed metal, and on and on.
- Increased polarization of communities: Thanks to the media, we’re finding more and more reasons why we’re different from other people. The rich hate the poor, the whites hate the blacks, the Jews hate the Muslims and neighbours hate each other. The idea of something like a town hall meeting, or an idea of a coherent community in a local area seems quaint and almost laughable. The closest idea of community comes only from the internet, and even then it’s a pale mimic of what actual cultural interaction should be.
