2012 is right around the corner, and we've all heard the rumors and theories about what's going to happen. What's the real deal with 2012 though? What are some of the prophecies that are floating around and is anything really going to happen? Read on to learn about some of the alleged 2012 prophecies to see if there's any truth to the rumors.
First 2012 Prophecy: The world is going to end. This is a widely held belief that in 2012, after the end of the Mayan calendar, the world is going to end through some catastrophic disaster. As far as any scientist or astrologist can tell this is completely false and the transition to 2012 will be just like any other new year. However, no scientists can understand how the Mayans themselves were able to get such an accurate grasp of the universe around us by charting stars and the movement of planets. Till to this day scientists are boggled by their accute understanding of earth's place in our galaxy.
Second 2012 Prophecy: The end of the Mayan calendar signals a switch in consciousness. Depending on who you ask and what you choose to believe this may or may not be true. The Mayan calendar ends in 2012 but it also starts again, just like our calendar. Whether or not there is a real consciousness shift will depend on the events near or around the new year of 2012. Scary even more to believe, is the research that has been done on human consciousness. Researchers have found that the human bodies own electromagnetic field zeros out when one has an out of body experience. They have also found that our electromagnetic field is directly influenced by the earths... so, one can only wonder, what would happen to our consciousness in the event of a complete polar shift? Scientists are already finding that the earth's magnetic field is decreasing, hinting that a polar reversal may be near...
Third 2012 Prophecy: The Mayans accurately predicted other important events. This is up for debate and the jury is definitely out on this. A lot of people say that the Mayans have successfully predicted other important events like the reign of Nazi Germany and so forth, but so did many other people, and it's usually in very vague terms that aren't that specific and can be applied to many other large events.
These are just 3 prophecies of many, all from the ancient Mayan civilization, which without doubt has made a mark on our lives today with their incredible foresight. One can only wonder though, are the things they predicted actually going to happen? Should we trust an ancient civilization that to this day baffles scientists as with their incredible understanding of our solar system? That my friend, is for you to decide - Will You Survive?
