Sedona 2012 Festival: Shifting Into the NOW Age

Nov 30, 2012 11:01AM

The curious date of December 21, 2012 (12/21/12), has been anticipated as a milestone for humanity. Some have prophesied it as bringing the end of the world, a time of cataclysm, a shift in consciousness or myriad other speculations. What is agreed upon by many masters and spiritual teachers throughout the world is that this year marks a turning point when humankind will walk through an energetic portal and make the greatest leap in our spiritual evolution, a feat unsurpassed in history.

This significance of 2012 was predicted by nearly every major spiritualbased culture including the Mayans, the Hopi, and the Egyptians, as well as being shared through numerous modern-day channels. The process that mankind is now going through is similar to hanging a string of Christmas lights on a tree and then plugging them in. Each bulb has to be checked and sometimes replaced but when all is done, there is a point when the lights are turned on and we’re ready to celebrate. This is what’s happening with the year 2012. This is not just another year nor just another significant year in our evolution. The year 2012 is the year wherein mankind begins its actual ascension into higher dimensions—the remembrance of our Divine Nature. From this point forward, our lives will never be the same.

Masters from every nation, thought system and tribe throughout the planet, acknowledged or not, are being called to activate their lightbodies and local temples, as well as the gridlines and vortexes throughout each region, as a means of preparing for humanity’s quantum leap into a new dimension. The planet and all of its inhabitants are now preparing to celebrate the holiest of days; the birthing of the realization of our divinity.

To usher in this auspicious event, hundreds of people committed to a spiritual path will gather in Sedona, Arizona, home to one of the world’s primary energy vortices, for the Sedona
