Self Fulfilling Prophecies - 2012

Updated on April 21, 2012

I am producing this hub in response to the question "Are we causing 2012?"

Now, before I launch into details, I want to clearly answer Yes, we are. For those of you who are good with that simple response, your free to browse or leave the rest of my response as your leisure. For those of you who seek further details, feel free to stay tuned as I attempt to clarify my belief that we are causing 2012 to manifest into our lives.

Self Fulfilling Prophecies

are tricky things. I'm sure you've probably heard of them, but for those of you who aren't sure if you have, a self-fulfilling prophecy happens when we imagine that something will happen a certain way, and we continue to dwell on it happening. By this action, we end up subconsciously calling the situation to us and bringing it into manifest reality.

This is how extremely poor people become extremely wealthy, how extremely rich people manage to loose all their resources and how most of us stay stuck in a world of debt and struggles. We imagined that things would happen a certain way, and they did!

2012 is another self-fulfilling prophecy. And I look at it in one of two ways.

  1. The Mesopotamians did create a calendar which the Mayans gleamed a future prophecy from. What they were intuitively describing, was that a shift in energy would be created that would jump start a new cycle/era/time/reality. What they saw, was the result of what we are creating as we speak.

    Now, depending on how and what we act, think and do from here on out, will change what the Mayans saw way back when. What you have to recognize is that time is NOT linear, meaning that it doesn't go in a line from past-present-future. Time is simply the way we organize what has happened or is likely to happen, just as calendars are simply a way to organize our time in a linear fashion. Thinking of time in a linear way makes it easier for us to be productive, but it confuses the reality of things. Because the Mayan prediction is dependent on what we have yet to officially bring forth (in our present reality), the prophecy will change depending on the outcome. If world war 3 strikes up, that will be the combustive action necessary to jump start the new age. If instead we are visited by extraterrestrial or interterrestrial beings that come out en masse, then that will be kick into the new era that the Mayans saw. Basically, whatever we create from here on out, is what the Mayan priests will see and predict way back when.
  2. The other way you could look at it, is that the Mayan prediction really has very little to do with the 2012 we are creating, other than the coincidence that they marked the end of an old cycle. Even if this is the reality you choose to go with, the fact is that we are still creating an "event" in 2012. It's happening because we humans have the ability to manifest through thought and action. When two people do it together, the power of that is multiplied. So you can imagine what amount of energy is going into the thought of 2012. When you think about anything over and over again, the energy of that thought attracts the objects, people, things or situations to you that are most similar to your thought patterns. Regardless of what the most significant catalyst will be in 2012, the main point is that something will definitely happen because so many people are thinking about what will happen. At the moment, a winning event hasn't been decided. If it had been decided, psychics, seers and even scientists would have been able to clearly predict such an event a long time ago. When a majority belief about the event that will come, wins out over other beliefs, then the event will begin to manifest. This will more than likely not be undecided until we are within the last few months of 2012, as people really firm up which date they feel this soon-to-be-decided event will take place. Then people will get themselves ampped up about what they fantasize might happen, which will send waves of quantum energy out to bounce around and entice others to get all jumpy, excited, scared or anxious too. That energy will gather the resources and grow the appropriate situations to manifest on or near the date that everyone focuses on most.

    I'm specifically being unclear about the exact date because there are some that believe it will be December 21st, 2012. There are others who feel 12/12/12 is more fitting and still others that feel that the calendar is off and nothing will happen until 2013 or 2012. The majority belief right now is for the 21st of December, so I would predict that somewhere near that date would be the time when the catalyze event will kick start us into a new time.

Either way you choose to look at it, the end result is still the same - the 2012 prophecy would not ever occur if we didn't create it. What psychics, priest, prophets and ancient seers have seen is not the event itself, but the fact that we will create an event. It could be big, small, easy or hard, it really isn't important. The importance is in our beliefs, actions and thought patterns.

What really matters

is not whether or not something will happen, or what will happen. The bigger issue is what we allow ourselves to think the world into. Imagining some form of rapture or doomsday or end-times scenario, is not only counterproductive but why would you wish that upon yourself or anyone else? Just as equally, while peace on earth and absolutely ascension might be noble and virtous paths to tread, we'd loose an awful lot of freedom in every aspects of our lives if everyone were peaceful. It'd be rather boring, which in my opinion is not what the human experience is all about. You may defer in opinion, and that's okay.

In fact, I would applaud you if you knew yourself well enough to know that you would prefer to exist in a peaceful paradise where everyone is always happy, always has everything could ever need or everything is always the same. Who cares that humans would have to be magickally or surgically altered to be able to stay in one emotional state, or that we'd all have to loose our free will and freedom to have property in order to make everyone "equal". The main point is that you really examine what it is you want from life.

Think about where you are spiritually now and where you want to be. Think about your philosophies about relationships, business and family. Think about how you want the world around you to be, the good - the bad - the beautiful - the ugly. Think about everything and nothing, leave no stone unturned, because as you get each thing clarified in your mind and you've made a firm decision, those things will start to come to you, bringing you more energy as you get closer to your final decision about how you want your world to change when the 2012 day comes.

Dance to your own tune

Now, if follow the herd or sticking with your pack in terms of how you want 2012 to turn out, is what you are most comfortable with, then by all means, do that. Though I would like you to take a moment now to consider that Creativity is one of human-kinds most precious gifts. The ability to CREATE is the divine ability, and the ability to be genuine and diverse in our creations is what sets us apart from other beings. So if you were to follow your own drummer and create the world in the image you feel it should be in, instead of just blindly following others for comfort, you might find that the result of 2012 is more bountiful in resources and opportunity for everyone.

Just something to think about =)

    Individuality, creativity, and imagination are all great things, albeit some people prefer to be lost sheep and/or gullible jackasses, throughout their entire life.

    On another note, there have been prophesies laid in and an overall sense of foreboding, since the beginning of recorded history, with or without the 2012 doom & gloom predictions.

    The media of today, could hype up and amplify a bologna sandwich, if it ever so desired... It's a different world out there today, and many people experience less reality and more baloney, than ever before...

    Yeah, it does seem that we are at the brink of madness, but what's new?

    Nice hub; cheers!

    The man who coined the term "self-fulfilling prophecy" -- Robert K. Merton -- defined it this way: "The self-fulfilling prophecy is, in the beginning, a false definition of the situation evoking a new behavior which makes the originally false conception come true. . . the prophet will cite the actual course of events as proof that he was right from the very beginning."
