As you may or may not know, the Mayan calendar ended on December 21, 2012.
Many thought that date marked the end of the world. Others interpreted this as the end of an age of consciousness and a shifting to a new one.

In my opinion, there is a shift upon us, it’s a shift in consciousness and it started somewhere in the late 1980s, it is continuing now, and it is accelerating. Generally, it is a shift from a fear-based society to one that is more love-based.

Many people haven’t noticed any shift but, if you look for it, you will see it happening all around us.

Here are some examples:

1. Crime statistics are down, people are living longer and there is more peace in the world than ever before in our recorded history.
2. We are seeing extraordinary advances in the sciences. Quantum Physics, Nanotechnology, space travel and other, new emerging sciences are giving us new systems, devices and materials to make our lives easier.
3. We see an increasing interest in taking care of the planet and finding creative ways to marry commerce with the environment.
4. In our institutions we are seeing giant shifts. For example
• In education we are seeing increasing emphasis on right-brain activity, creativity, critical thinking, research, and we have special schools for the gifted, for the arts, for athletes, etc.
• In religion, we are seeing much less fear-based preaching about sin and damnation and many more love-based initiatives involving community, helping the disadvantaged and loving our neighbor.
• We are seeing big shifts in our food system. Grocery stores have large organic sections, which didn’t exist 20 years ago. Legislation is prescribing disclosure on labels. And, we have Nutritionists and food scientists teaching us about nutrition, supplements and healthy eating. We also have more options for healthy, clean water.
• We are seeing increased emphasis on the prevention of disease, as well as alternative and complimentary approaches to health and healing. Today, we are asking more questions of our physicians, we are taking more responsibility for our own health, we are designing healthier life styles and we are living longer.
• The media is no longer controlled by a select few, with deep pockets. Today, we have Social media, wikileaks, podcasts, and other forums where almost anyone can play.

If we look for it, we can see the shift all around us. The planet is moving to the fourth density and she’s taking us with her. For the most part, we are heading towards a much better, less fearful and more loving society. In doing so, it is raising the collective vibration, expanding our consciousness, advancing our spirituality and helping us to evolve as a species.

So, I invite you to look around and notice what’s shifting in your world and, if you care to, decide how you will contribute to it. The people featured my podcasts have mostly figured it out and they are all actively doing their part.
