For Centuries the Mayan prophecies predicted that the earth and it’s inhabitants would see the end of the world as we know in the year 2012. Well clearly the world did not end, and on a personal level you may not have noticed much of a change in your life. At this same juncture, approximately 10 years ago you also entered the beginning of the Aquarian Age.
What is an 'Age' and what is its significance?
An age often lasts around 2,000 years and in 2012 we ended the age of pieces, which was an age in which humanity looked outside of themselves for answers. Pieces is the sign of Christ and many followers of Christ got so busy looking for a prophet to save them that they forgot they had all the faith and power they needed to save themselves inside themselves. As this new age, or Aquarian age births forth through its infancy phases we are starting to see more and more people look to their own inner wisdom and sovereignty to pull them through the tough times life inevitably carries. More people are practicing yoga and looking into mindfulness practices to help bring them back to their truth so they can cut away the many distractions of today’s world.
If you find yourself in the midst of both breakdown and new opportunities coming your way - then you’re on the right track. This can feel overwhelming and difficult, as one day you can feel on top of the world then the next day way down in the dumps. Have faith and keep the focus on your goals or the feelings your desire to have in life. Remember: This is how your journey should look right now.
