2012 Mayan Calendar : Is the end of the world really coming?!

One of the greatest lessons of my life has been from my mother and you may have heard me (read me?) say this before,

To each their own.

So no matter what you believe in, I’ll always be here to support you and I appreciate that on the rare occasions I “preach” about anything, that you receive it with an open mind and know you can freely share your opinions in the comments without judgement.

A MAJOR topic of conversation right now is the 2012 Mayan Calendar and impending end of the world.









Personally, I believe the world as we know it is coming to an end and has been coming to an end for a while.  Now, I’m not talking about the planet exploding or anything like that.  I’m talking about human consciousness.

I’ve shifted in my beliefs about A LOT of things this year:

  • Exercise and nutrition (more on that in 2013)
  • My body
  • Religion/spirituality
  • Healing practices, energy and meditation
  • Personality and how I perceive others
  • Emotions
  • Time
  • How I work
  • Relationships

Relationships has been one of the biggest shifts for me this year. I’ve found myself gravitating towards those who “get it” and distancing myself from those who don’t.

Here are four contrasting views to illustrate what I’m talking about:

  1. Fear-based mindset (doesn’t get it) versus love-based mindset (gets it)
  2. Stress-based, reactionary lifestyle (doesn’t get it) versus create-my-own-reality-based lifestyle (gets it)
  3. Logic rules (doesn’t get it) versus intuition cannot be ignored (gets it)
  4. Takes no responsibility for thoughts or emotions (doesn’t get it) versus takes control of thoughts and uses emotions as a guidance system (gets it).

If you are in the camp that “gets it” I bet you have more examples of your own and I would love for you to post them in the comments.

The other big shift I’ve felt growing in 2012 is towards CONNECTION.  

To ourselves in terms of our bodies, our desires, and intuition.

Towards other in terms of REAL LIFE connection. –> Click to Tweet

The internet is a true gift, but it’s made surface level connection far too easy, and we’ve lost site of how deep and meaningful connecting with people in real time can be.  We text instead of call, express ourselves primarily via Facebook posts, messages, “likes” and “shares” and we Tweet what we’re up to instead of involving the people we care about most way too much.

It’s time to get back to more human interaction and less machine interaction.

So, do we have anything to fear with 12.21 upon us? I say No Way, Jose.

As I watched the Marie Forleo interview below this week and yelled back at the computer screen “yes!!” “exactly!” “thank youu!!”  I decided it was the perfect way to tie a bow on this post. Not only does her guest dive into what’s really going on, but she also gives some useful tips for how to make the most of it in 2013.  Take a look:

    Dear Liz,
    About the topic of the website, I should say that “don’t worry, honey”. In my opinion nothing will happen in this date. Be relaxed and spend your off days in peace and quite and celebrate your feast happily. But scientifically, our earth encounters lots of problems that most of them are unfortunately, man made. Earth is getting sick. It is losing its energy, natural resources and etc. Maybe you have heard about global warming. Of course, the earth is so generous and don’t want to be cruel with the creatures but human’s lifestyle even advance technologies that in most cases are against ecology, makes the earth to be weak. I think, maybe some changes including in ecology, geology, earth magnet, even astronomic and etc, will happen on the earth in 2012, but this changes don’t lead to end the life, exactly in 2012. In my opinion its occurrence is not far, and may be, would happen in our period of life. I myself have done lots of searches regarding to increasing global warming in my main major. Results show that lots, lots and lots of factors, both biotic and abiotic is going to be changed on the earth that will lead to human encounter new problems that were not face with them before. Dear Liz, I have written one review article about effects of different abiotic factors on vectors under global warming, and have submitted it to a website. I will send you one copy of it, after its publication.
    All the best,

      Wow! Thanks for putting so much thought into your comment, Khadijeh!

    hi liz,

    thanks for sharing your thoughts…I totally concur. I have been shifting away from those who don’t get it…my whole life without even realizing I was doing that. Every two years my close knit friendship circle would dissolve or I would get nudged out of a group I brought together. I now look back and see it as a gift.

    cheers to the movers and the shakers who will bring more connectedness to the human race.

    My hubby and I have already lost focus on our New Year Resolutions – your drive is inspiring. He also called the Mayan calendar expiring the same as the silliness around Y2K stuff. A whole lot of people didn’t get it. Hopefully, I “get it” but ….
