Why 2012 Ascension Does Not Matter To Most People

March 15, 2010 by  

I’ve been writing about Ascension since I observed my own Ascension soul shift in January 2009. Ascension soul shift, new souls arriving to replace the old, is a major change is our spiritual existence that can be read in the Akashic Records. So far, however, I haven’t been clear exactly how this relates to 2012 or if 2012 is truly a significant year. (Photo credit)

Recently, I’m receiving more detailed info. . .

Why every psychic has different opinions about 2012 Ascension

Because our experience (more accurately, our perception of the experience) depends on our spiritual awareness and willingness. Our free will is always respected by God, so if you don’t want Ascension, you won’t have it. You don’t have to worry if you accidentally may ascend against your will. If you don’t want to see the great shift of ages, you won’t, and that will be your experience, your version of reality.

And those who is not spiritually ready to experience Ascension will not experience it. I must say this is the case with the majority of the world population. Many people don’t see themselves as spiritual beings. Many are afraid to even acknowledge there are invisible aspects to life beyond the physical world that meets the eye. If a person’s spiritual growth level is that primitive, they simply won’t notice anything now or in 2012. So again, no worries to them. Life will be just the same for them in 2012 and beyond.

But what about the people who is spiritually developed enough and open and willing to experience Ascension?

How to Ascend

In my previous post How to Ascend, I explained Ascension soul shift is just the beginning of the new experiences, not the end or the goal. I also suggested to increase your vibration by aligning more to Divine Love, Light, Truth, Abundance, and Power. (The link takes you to the summary post of this series.) These are all good points I still stand for, but here, I want to emphasize the most important point.

If you look forward to Ascension in 2012, while you loathe your present life and the world, you miss the whole point. The trick is to live and love right here and now, as if we are to go on forever beyond any time point in the future.

Many people make one of the two big mistakes:

  1. Life is long. Be prepared. People in this camp live on deferred life plan. They postpone real life and work like crazy now. They even postpone love.
  2. Now is all we’ve got. Do whatever you want to do because tomorrow we may die. People on this camp live in transient pleasure. They fail to see the true pleasure of life because they are so hurried to grab instant gratification.

Ironically, both camps fail to experience life fully. Neither is what I am suggesting, of course.

What I am talking about is to live today fully in a way that you can keep doing all the way into your old age but at the same time, you’d have no regrets if you see angels in your night’s dream and are told this was your last day.

Forget 2012 Ascension. Live now.

This is how you may experience the most wonderful thing.

What spiritual growth means

What is it really to grow spiritually? Is any spiritual or religious practices superior than others?

To grow spiritually is to have full awareness of love, to love oneself, the life, this Earth, deeply and completely. The five Divine energies are really one: Love. Light is another aspect of love. Love is Light and Light is Love. And when All is the loving light, there is nothing that is not Truth. And this light is all there truly is, it’s Abundant. When you are filled with this Light of Love, you have the true Power.

All the spiritual and religious practices, including meditation and prayers, are helpful only in assisting you to realize this Love. They are not the requirement of Ascension or spiritual growth.

What happens to those who misses the “opening” of 2012?

Most likely, nothing. When they grow to Love, they would understand what would have happened in 2012.

So we don’t need to hand out cautionary notes warning something terrible would happen to them in 2012 if they don’t repent and prepare. Nay. Rather, love them as they are right now.


Are you living love? Are you living in a way that you can go on and at the same time you can leave any time? Take some time to reflect on this, not for the sake of Ascension but to live well today — and you may get to know what 2012 Ascension is all about.

This is all I can say at this time because, for those of you who is heading toward Ascension, more will be revealed directly. Stop relying on psychics to understand 2012 Ascension and start paying attention to your direct communication with God and your personal spirit guides.

The title of this post is surely written in a tongue in a cheek manner. Whether you are spiritually developed or not, live as if 2012 doesn’t matter.

    what synchronicity!! i wrote a post today discussing the upcoming energy shift and how many people are not ready yet. I was focusing primarily on many people being stuck in physical energies of illusion like money, materialism and the like which is preventing balance of the bodies and spiritual awareness.
    I too went through an ascension soul shift, it was truly amazing….
    keep up the good work on your blog…we need to keep up the energies….

    2012 is many things to many people. I think the important thing is, don’t focus on the date, instead assume the direction and hop aboard the huge wave of manifestation that has and will continue to build as we advance though this process.

    Hi Akemi

    I really enjoyed this. It intrigued me to hear what you had to say on the subject and I so agree, living today the best way we can is I think the best we can do. I personally know that I hold this whole 2012 period in a very beautiful and hopeful way, so while I really look forward to the changes that may arise, I also have to be conscious not to ever get caught up in them, but live life today the way I would whether nothing or everything was going to change.

    So no matter what happens, heart centered living is key for me, today and always. In the end it really is about how we treat eachother, and all the rest you mentioned, not about some special process or something happening to us.

    At last, a sane, common sense, approach to 2012. There’s an abundance of horrific predictions on the Net, and I found myself believing all of them! You know the kind of thing? What if I ascend (which I probably will) and my loved ones and (for that matter, most of the human race) aren’t ready? Will most people perish? Sadly, most people I know are totally disinterested in spiritual matters, and it would take a miracle to transform them in two years! So, will only we light workers survive? (an exclusive club for the small minority of light workers!). I was actually waking up in a cold sweat, all rational thinking gone, until I read your article. Thank you, and God bless.

  9. Geri on August 11th, 2010 3:55 pm

    Forgot to say … like you, I’ve been experiencing energy shifts too. A massive raise in consciousness recently, where I’ve been feeling more loving, and able to understand things in a way I didn’t understand them before. Feeling energy more strongly. Clearer insights into things I did or didn’t do in the past, and generally feellng much higher in a lot of ways. It seems ascension really is galloping along, way before 2012!

    Trouble is, old friendships have more or less melted away cos we’re on different wavelengths, and have less in common. It’s kinda lonely until new, more like-minded people come in.

    I’d love to know if anyone else had a similar experience?

    I hear a lot of concerns like you expressed, that they are concerned about their family and friends who are not into spiritual development.
    My understanding is, spiritual awakening can happen in less than a second. So perhaps there is not much you need to worry — two years is plenty.

  12. Annemarie on November 30th, 2010 1:15 am

    What a lovely site Akemi. I have researched about 2012 for a while now and i am an Angel Teacher of the Diana Cooper School of Angels and Ascension. I truly believe that we will create the reality that we want. I choose that it is going to be a wonderful experience.
    Geri, i understand your concerns about your loved ones. I have processed this now. It upset me at first but then like Akemi stated, it is two years yet before ascension. Also if we go into the 5th dimension and some don’t then we will have a kind of understanding and detachment and will not be thinking and feeling the sadness as we do now in the 3rd dimension. Plus the viels between the the dimensions will be thinner and we will proberly see them. Diana’s book 2012 and Beyond is a good read and gently written.
    Blessings Annemarie x

    Thank you.

    Come to think about it, people who think they are more spiritually advanced (and therefore “concerned for the less advanced ones) will probably have harder time. Because, that is only ego talking. For more details, please see my recent posts such as this.

  14. Annemarie on December 1st, 2010 11:23 am

    Akemi, Yes food for thought, i agree with you. I guess, at the end of the day we really do not know what our soul has chosen.As you have stated before awekening can happen at any time as as we all all different ,it will be what it will be..
    Blessings and Light xx

  15. Terese on January 29th, 2011 5:34 pm

    Geri and all who read. I also have been going through major shifts since the early 90′s. I was an atheist until 1990 when I got sick and bedridden for about a year. I started gardening and something happened to me where I just set out to find the highest truth at what stage I am at I do not compare. I am now 51 and just recently I just graduated from University with a bachelors in Psych. I had been engrossed in school for over 4 years and prior I was a massage therapist and Reiki healer. I had always been highly intuitive and have remained humble with my gifts. Which leads me to this in that I had recently experienced something so profound and the shift was so abrubt that I was depressed because I just go out of school and just wanted to sit and watch movies and eat in between meditating. I was meditating when it happen and I cried uncontrollably because I was in the presence of something so huge and beautiful I could not contain my joy. I have had similar experiences but none at the magnitude such as this. my fiance thought I was losing my mind, it took me a few weeks to adjust and come back down, however nothing was the same. Family, friends and my fiance, I could no longer relate to. I felt so alone and had really no one on earth to talk to so I just prayed and kept meditating until I felt adjusted. James my fiance finally also recieved a shift not in a big way however enough so we could still relate and know together what is to begin. I can concurr that all that is to be is to love and I noticed the shift of compassion was unbelievable. I have always been loving and giving, and forgiving, however this was way beyond me. I noticed flaws in myself were gone. Such as petty jealousy with my fiance, it was as if I really did reach a new level of awareness. I had always asked God to take the jealousy away, My fiance is very handsome and also had an out of control ego so I really didn;t even know I had it in me to be jealous until I got with him. I saw the darkness come to light and did everything I could to get rid of it and it seemed like all of a sudden I had no jealous problem after that. I never had any feeling such like that until I met him but that was gone. I still am having an adjustment with the sexual issues. Because after my experience sex seem so pointless this feeling was of such greatness that sex paled in comparison.
    All those who are light givers and those associated with them will experience a shift. But as you mentioned many will not including family members and friends. I pray for them and that is all I can do. You cannot get them to understand nor no point in trying. Compassion is the key and just loving them. I also noticed that those in the dark that were still clinging to us were trying so hard to bring us back down, temptation set in for a few but we realized this was just the end of the past and or the beginning of the shift. That was the obvious which is not fun at all but we came out of it unscathed. I just want to tell everyone that there are many of us and we might not know eachother but we are out there as I told my fiance. We just have a different kind of network that is unseen, that many do not have to twitter about or be in the material. We are all connected so as I have shifted I already knew many were experiencing the same. If anyone is reading and shared the same experience, no you have not gone mad, you have awakened a veil as lifted and many more to come. If we saw our creator in its nakedness we surely would be dead. Even the bit I had experienced I thought it was too much and cried for days, the joy was painful. We as humans cannot handle this feeling it becomes denser as we settle into our material world via our bodies. As to Akemi keep the line open and much love to you and thank you for your being. I am sure we will all meet because contrary to what people think as something bad will happen so has something good. The blessings will be for those who see them and desire them and be them. Blessings to all and I have the trust that those who are in constant interaction with the spirit world will not worry or fear. Take care all and thanks to all that have no fear for it is you that brings the light.

  16. Rachel on February 11th, 2011 2:50 pm

    Just beautiful. Also, Terese, I completely relate to you. I had a visit from Creator, just a bit, and it almost literally blew my mind. It’s taken months for me to “come down” from that experience. It was a huge gift, to be sure, but the magnitude has been overwhelming. Everyone be blessed.

    Wondrous and Extremely Challenging Times Indeed.
    Considering the New Zealand disaster, the floods in my country Australia, eastern states, the civil unrest in middle east, the general crime, bashings and murders in most cities; a growing number of people think 2012 is all doom and gloom. For example Nibiru. We need to get the message out that 2012 may also be a cleansing of the earth and a new age of enlightenment. Perhaps this cleansing of evil and destruction is like the labour pains of child birth. Your blog achieves this. Your article mentions many will continue in this experience after 2012 as they are not spiritually ready. This conflicts with some other messages that say the whole galaxy will undergo changes and ascend. Either way, I think a board game that portrays the positive benefits of meditation and ascension would be quite useful in passing on this knowledge. You can find such a board game at this website.
    P.S you will need to read to the bottom of the page to get the full metaphysical understanding of the game.

    Are you going to believe in random people from the internet, an old calendar and a planet that we should be able to see by now? or the most advanced group of scientists on the planet?

  20. Sarah on March 6th, 2011 9:54 am

    Try not to worry about your loved ones who won’t assend, life is eternal and they will never die, they will just continue on with their individual journey. When the time is right for them they WILL asscend. (It has already happened)

  21. mpho on April 17th, 2011 1:12 am

    life is no longer the same for me.i lost all of my friends.i am also dealing with my childhood issues.its very the plannet is cleansing itself, we should also cleanse ourselves spiritually,emotionally and physically.

  22. wunengbarata on April 27th, 2011 3:56 pm

    Let me sharing some old China Prophecy re Ascension, I. by Liu Bo Wen who lives in Ming dynasty say : 10,000 of the rich only 2 or 3 person, the poor amongst 10,000 will live 2 or 3,000 human. When time coming most of human will die, whom escape from one disaster, another 9 or 10 will follow.Until the Holly one came, the survival will enjoy.
    Another prophecy by Nan Se Ku, a Korean Buddhist Monk who lived in dynasty too, he me a Holly man and told him what to going to be happen.
    In his prophecy clearly stating the coming of the Holly one in this earth, but do not know him, not recognize him, we can be ascension if meet him, and have comply with terms and conditions of ascension. there are 3 type : 1st. not comply with 2.nd comply with terms and condition for ascension, 3rd. soon will comply with will safe.
    During the coming of Jesus Christ is for spreading Gospel and 2nd coming if for harvesting/threshing. So for their way of live, speaking, behaving, and thinking ( in Buddhism stating : Body, mouth, mind ) should be cleanse thoroughly. So what a tragic who call my Lord my Lord, and He will not know them, because of sin which have done by human. So cleanse your selves and then help other to conscious too. Time will not so long. What we have done via our physic/body ? Mind ? Mouth ? so far.

  23. Dave on April 27th, 2011 4:42 pm

    There seems to be two opinions concerning 2012 and ascension. One group believes that only those ready will be transformed. The second group believe that the entire galaxy will move into a higher vibration and therefore everyone will shift.

    Group 1. seems to me to be religion based thinking. Got to be good enough, worthy to be included. Make it by works. Separation of the wheat and tares. Separation of the sheep from the goats. etc. Two will be in the field – one will be taken and the other remain. etc. Fear driven and fear is the opposite to love.

    Group 2. seems more scientific based thinking. Like waves of energy in a natural 26,000 year cycle going to pass through this 3D illusion and transform ALL that exists on this level to move to a 5D experience. This group is the transformation of the sheep and the goats together. Two in the field will be taken together.

    I agree with Marcus Patman and Akemi’s comments that rather than get caught up in it, to live for each day and share love, compassion and forgiveness.

    Hello everyON3 2012 has so many views on what’s to come. My view is this a great spiritual shift for all of GOD’s creation. Now what would cause this to happen to get arrogant man to fall to their knees and to becoming humble, where war on one another will end. Only the father sees the time to past. As the son awaits to make his word true, and the holy spirit protect all that believes in the light of love. May it be that the son of man embraces the light of love in all walks of life. That looks to preserve life not destroy life physically or mentally toward one another.
