If you take into account leap years and such, 2012 happened a couple years ago.
Mainly what this prophecy was all about is not this crazy apocalypse of chaos death and destruction it's merely a change in the Earth's vibrational energy.
There is an article I read, which I can't seem to find now about how this 2012 thing all of the planets aligned. That's not the only thing, we were lined up from Pleiades to this huge black hole in the milky way. During this time a photon belt started to pass through the Earth. This is still ongoing. I believe this photon belt will be affecting Earth until 2017 or 2019 (I can't remember specifically) This mainly means one important thing, the vibrational energies that govern the Earth are rising to a higher dimension.
You may have started to notice people being one of two ways. They have either begun to thrive in this new energy shift...or you'll notice people who always have a bad shake in life just get bombarded with more crap and they are overwhelmed and it's wearing on them. Unfortunately, when your body vibrates lower than that of the Earth it will affect you negatively until you can no longer survive. You have the ability to raise your own vibrations through meditation and releasing old patterns that don't serve your higher good. This is not a religious thing, it's a dimensional thing..
The Earth is currently passing from the 3rd Dimension to the 5th Dimension. The way in which life once was, will no longer be. If you are thriving in this energy shift (like me!!) you'll be in touch with your intuition, higher self, conciousness, and ability to be the creator of your own life. This really is a wonderful time. Raising your vibrations FEELS good. You have to understand that every thought and emotion evokes a vibration. There is a chart you can google that explains that anger/depression are on the lowest vibrational spectrum, while love and tranquility are at the very top. The more love you pour into yourself and release angers and resentments the better your life will become exponentially in this new shift.
There is no fear here. It will get very bad for some people, but you must understand that you can't help them. They have to want to help themselves and you'll see this unfold before your eyes. It's accelerating now.
