What is the Personal and Global Significance of 2012?

It has been some time now and everyone seems to be pondering the significance of 2012, both on a global and a personal level.  So what is the personal and global significance of 2012?  At one extreme we have had doomsday movies and prophecies touted as the most likely cataclysmic outcome of this year, while the other hails this as the beginning of the Age of Aquarius; a time of peace and spiritual awakening.

As I sit here writing this, we are a month and a half into 2012 and I find myself thinking about what is in store for our planet and global community in the coming months.  The main message I would like to give you is that absolutely nothing about our futures is written in stone.  We are all making choices and decisions every second of every day that are changing and creating different paths ahead of us.  What I do like to think is that our lives are like a ship.  Some of us feel like we have no control about where the ship is going but we must remember that we can go anywhere we choose to aboard the vessel.  Others will take control of the ship itself and start directing it in the direction you want.  Big or little, no matter how dire things seem, we have choices.  So, the question then becomes not “What will happen in 2012?” but instead “What do you want to happen in 2012?”

I believe our ships may be on turbulent waters this year, and some of us may be petrified, but others will have the rides of their lives.  I am hoping the energy of this year will propel us into the lives that we want.  I don’t believe for one second that the world will end this year, but I do believe that certain practices and regimes will end.  I see people waking up to the world that we live in and deciding that they want something better.  No longer will we just react to the chaos that has been increasing around us, and we will no longer be puppets or cogs in a machine.

For those who want it, there will be an amazing spiritual awareness available.  It will make us realise our own worth and see what we are here to be.  We can embrace this change and energy and become our higher selves and act for the highest good of ourselves and this planet as a whole.  Those that fear this change or try to fight it may well feel like their realities are coming to a disastrous end, as they find themselves struggling against a tide.

Massive change, some of it difficult to take is on the cards for this year, but it is up to you to decide what you will make of it.  Decide today what it is that you want to achieve this year and realise that it is more than a resolution or a wish; treat it like a goal that is absolutely achievable this year.
