Shamanic Wisdom: We Are the Creators of the Future

Shamanic Wisdom: We Are the Creators of the Future Jan Engels-Smith

We are hovering at the apex of the grandest time in human existence. For years, we have all experienced references to the year 2012 and prophecies about the cataclysmic changes that would ensue. The most famous reference has been to the Mayan calendar and the date December 21, 2012, when the world was supposed to end as the Mayan calendar concluded its 5,126-year cycle.

Many religions in many different civilizations have referenced the end times. The Book of Revelations in the Bible speaks of the end times, but references to a concluding moment in humankind's era are common across many cultures. There are Tibetan, Hopi, and Lakota prophecies. People have built monuments, temples, and pyramids that reflect the significance of this time, specifically this key date of December 21, 2012.

All Endings Presage a Beginning

Astrologically, the stars have been studied and read to forecast this event, and religious documents from a variety of sources have referenced this time and its significance. We have most often looked to the ending, but all endings presage a beginning. If we find meaning in these projected terminations of our current state, their most significant message for us is what lies on the other side.
