"Over the next eight years (from 2004 to 2012), humanity will experience tremendous mental and spiritual transformations that are interconnected and will coincide precisely with the earth’s passage through a great physical upheaval. I sincerely believe a dramatic shift in consciousness will occur within this designated time frame, in order to set the stage for what is to come." – Dannion Brinkley

"The Mayan calendar, along with the fact that it ends in 2012, is one of the driving forces within the realms of modern spirituality. What effect could the ending of this calendar have on us individually and collectively? Many experts believe that at the appointed time, we will experience an immense shift in global consciousness. In fact, some speculate a worldwide infusion of a new spiritual consciousness of oneness being introduced to humanity in order to replace our present mindset dominated by fear, greed, and war mongering. As a result of this influx of elevated awareness, it has been postulated that we will ascend into a higher dimension of cosmic reality, wherein we shall indeed begin to experience the beginnings of Heaven on Earth. Well…no matter what is true, we do believe a change is coming." – Kathryn & Dannion Brinkley

"I want to make this prediction: When the horrific events predicted for 2012 do not occur (just as they did not occur as predicted for the catastrophic computer crashes at the New Millennium that was going to make all the world’s systems collapse), what Ramtha and others will say is this: The shift in global energy produced by the newly aroused determination of millions of people to create the future in another way has resulted in saving our planet…for the time being. Our predictions were therefore instrumental in awaking humanity, and we likewise wish humanity to know that continued vigilance is now necessary, as disaster for your world may still be around the corner. In this way, people can keep the pressure up, keep the spiritual stress level high, and, not incidentally, keep an audience listening with ears glued to every word. Impending doom has been a magnet for the collective mind for thousands of years. It continues to be so today. But not for me. And if I am wrong, and doom IS right around the corner, what difference will my having been wrong make? I certainly am not going to build an underground shelter and figure out a way to live in it for two years before coming out and living like a caveman in a primitive world…. Nope. Don’t think so." – Neale Donald Walsch

"Why is 2012 so important? We are now living in end times, that is the end of the Aztec and Mayan calendars, the end of the outbreath of Brahma, the end of a 26,000 year astrological period and the start of a new era. A cosmic moment occurs at the winter solstice in 2012, an instant of universal silence, which offers an unprecedented opportunity for divine inspiration. In addition three planets are configured to interact at the 2012 solstice. Neptune, which represents higher spirituality, Pluto transformation and Uranus change. As the energies they represent work together, it will cause a massive impact on the consciousness of the planet. This offers a potential for a huge shift in consciousness. Of course, such high energies can equally be used for bad if used unwisely, which is why everyone is called on to heal their emotions and thoughts now and use this great opportunity to change the planet. Individually and collectively there has never been such an opportunity for spiritual growth." – Diana Cooper, www.dianacooper.com

"The Hopi and Mayan elders do not prophesy that everything will come to an end. Rather, this is a time of transition from one World Age into another. The message they give concerns our making a choice of how we enter the future ahead. Our moving through with either resistance or acceptance will determine whether the transition will happen with cataclysmic changes or gradual peace and tranquility. The same theme can be found reflected in the prophecies of many other Native American visionaries from Black Elk to Sun Bear." – Shri Adi Shakti, adishakti.org

"My research about 2012 and The Shift indicates that the fields of science and spirituality are merging. Some of the greatest spiritual advances seem to be coming from people who once were hard-core scientists. Many of them are validating the prophesies of spiritual traditions of indigenous people and simultaneously invalidating outdated scientific paradigms such as Darwin’s theory of evolution. Even quantum theory is now being replaced with plasma theory, which says that the world is electrical. Prophesy is slowly becoming fact and science is supporting it." – Barry and Janae Weinhold, weinholds.org

"We are living in a most interesting time. From the Mayan perspective and from many other perspectives: These are the End Times. This is the time of prophecy. Just about everybody has heard of the date 2012. Most people hear this date and say, Hmm, isn’t that when the Mayan calendar ends? This is the stock answer. The Mayan calendar doesn’t end in 2012. The Mayan calendar is based on cycles within cycles within cycles. What happens in 2012 is the ending of a major cycle. For some reason or other the 2012 date, more than any other date of prophecies has stuck in people’s minds and imagination. 2012 is a marker, it’s a wake up call in our DNA. Why is this? …Before the first year of the Third Millennium was over there was a big event of which everyone is acutely aware. This event was known as the 9-11. This was the apocalyptic event to set the tone for the fact that we are now all on the Road to 2012. All the signs point to 2012. No one gets to the future without going through December 21, 2012. What does this mean, the end of the cycle? What is actually going on right now in the world that gives us any clue as to why things are happening the way they are happening now. And who were the ancient Maya that they knew these things so well? On December 21, 2012 a cycle will be complete. A cycle of what the Maya called 13 baktuns. There are 13 baktuns between 3113 B.C. and 2012. A baktun is a cycle of exactly 144,000 days. Thirteen cycles of 144,000 days and you come to the completion of a cycle. This cycle is what we call the cycle of history or the cycle of civilization. This cycle is a very interesting one in the history of the Earth and the evolution of the solar system, and even the history of the galaxy." – Jose Argelles
