Explaining 2012 – What Is The Great Shift Of 2012 About?

Share this

For some time now, there has been much speculation and misinformation regarding the events that may transpire around 2012 and particularly, around December 2012. Some refer to this time as the Ascension, “The Great Shift in consciousness,” or the beginning of the “Golden Age.” I see it as a shift from humanity having a surface-level understanding of reality to seeing what’s behind it and what supports it. I also see the “2012 shift” as a transition period, a shift from a time when humanity learns through suffering, to one of learning through joy. This sounds like good news, yet many are anxious about the process and about what’s around the corner.

A few years ago Dr. Eric Pearl (known for his work “The Reconnection”) said the following about December 21, 2012, “We will wake up that morning and still be able to see ourselves in a mirror.” I agree. Although it’s true that we’re living through a most challenging time in the evolution of this planet, one reason it’s challenging is that we’re called to let go of things (which of course will cause disruption), even though what we’re supported by the Universe to let go of are the things that don’t work, the habits, practices, structures and systems that are unwanted and unsustainable.

Just the other night I was lying in bed, thinking about a good example of this, and factory farming came to mind. Is factory farming sustainable? Is it a practice that humanity might want to transform, for a number of valid reasons? Absolutely. Might changes at first cause some disruption? No doubt they will.

In fact, 2012 is about raising our consciousness. We are in the process of raising our consciousness about our entire human experience. We are becoming clearer about the big picture “human story,” our history on this planet. We are gaining clarity about who we are, from where we originally came, and what our purpose and intent for being on this planet in a state of “lowered consciousness” was. We are also striving to successfully complete our higher purpose and our soul agreements each with other. All of these will transform our understanding of our journey, and then it will transform our outer reality.

Before we incarnated into this lifetime, our souls reflected on the awesome opportunity and the privilege it would be to be alive on this planet at this time of great transition. We were chosen out of many souls because we possessed the wisdom, the inner skills and the will to create a new world. We were the ones that were most likely to succeed and least likely to run away.

So how do you begin? You begin by connecting and integrating with your higher self, by connecting and listening to that deeper part of you. (One of my blog posts details a meditation designed especially for connecting with your higher self.)

By connecting with your higher self, you will access your higher self’s wisdom (your wisdom from all your incarnations). By following through with your inner guidance over time, you will gain clarity about your journey, you will discover why you chose what you chose (including your challenges and hardships), and you will discover why you’re here on this planet at this particular time (your unique role that only you can fulfill).

Although the reconnecting process is simple, it’s not very easy and it doesn’t get into full swing overnight. Reconnecting consists of 1. learning to distinguish your inner guidance from mental conditionings, societal programmings and others’ expectations (meaning, your higher-level consciousness from your human-level awareness) and 2. learning to trust that connection enough to promptly and consistently follow through and to make the changes you know you need to make.

Following through is of utmost importance. There’s nothing more effective for trusting in your connection with your higher self than experiencing the favorable and sometimes amazing results that come from actually following through.

You can reconnect to your higher self and even learn to trust it in a relatively short time period, but it takes time to put all the pieces of the puzzle of your life together and integrate the wisdom and the understanding. Jesus Christ possessed this higher-level consciousness. Through his higher self he was able to access his wisdom from all time. He understood who he was; he understood his mission and his purpose. He understood how he fit into the Divine Plan. This is why he taught, “The kingdom of heaven is within.” (The “God spark,” the “God aspect” of yourself is within; your higher self is within.)

Each one of us is contributing to the Great Shift of 2012 by “activating” our consciousness. You raise your consciousness by reconnecting to that higher aspect of yourself. By reconnecting to your higher self and gaining a higher-level perspective, you will be able to put the pieces together of your life and make sense of it so you understand your place in the Divine Plan. You will gain knowledge of your place in the universe, your higher purpose, and you will fulfill your purpose by following the step-by-step guidance you receive from your higher self. The key to all this is reconnecting and integrating with your higher self. It’s what 2012 is all about.

    Hi Christine, First Id like to say thank you! Your writings have given me much to think about. Ive only recently ( this past year ) reconnected with myself and begun looking within again. I got lost for quite a few years. Yours and many of the writings youve suggested have pointed me in a new and wonderful direction! About this one…as I was reading it, I almost closed it. Because I felt i had read so many similiar things lately. Then i thought ” well maybe so many people are talking about this for a reason “. It made me realize repetition of positive messages is necessary for me. To really get it to resonate deep within. So thanks again! Love&Light Ali

  4. Christine,

    I have often pondered how big this shift in 2012 will be. It is funny that you were thinking about farming the other night; I have been reading up on all the latest GMO research and it is truly sickening what corporations like Monsanto are doing to our food supply. I encourage everyone to check out this article to learn more:


    But my point is that I hope this shift causes the global population to wake up to this sort of greed at the expense of our children and grandchildren, and then that we all do what we can to stop it.

    I wish you the best with your new home!

    Hi Christine,
    In celebrating the joy within as you integrate moving to your new home, the birds of the sky sings Hosanna to the King within my heavens when ever i hear and read your posts including that of Joshua Tilghman as contributory factors in shifting my consciousness from limiting belief systems that no longer serve me to deeper seeking to know and be connected to “God as Light” so as to become free from nature and the cycles of life and death in order to attain Greater Enlightenment and Immortality. Blessings.

    I love the posts too, they have been synchronised with my experiences so far which is always promising and keep life less than dull – also give great hope for development, personally and globally. I have however been hoping for a blindingly interesting surge of energy to hit everyone and change things at least reasonably dramatically. I am kind of seeing an event like this fading away and the hype for the last 6 or so years amounting to very little… Am I pessimistic in saying this or was I hoping for too much? I know we create our realities and I am doing so, but I sure would like to create something spiritually ecstatic – and thoughts on an event or a noticeable shift by the end of the year, not just a slow gradient? What are peoples thoughts…?
