Have you been noticing a shift lately in the type of news stories that are being shared… And that more and more people are becoming interested in collectively changing the world and spreading happiness? This is not simply a fad or trend, it is a mass awakening of the world.
I first heard about this during a Oneness meditation I attended in January 2014. The woman that was holding it was Catherine Scherwenka and she had been living at the Oneness University in India for 3 years. She was one of few people that was able to do meditation with her eyes, where divine energies are transmitted from her eyes to others through eye contact. Before the meditation began, she said something that really resonated with me. She told us that the years 2009, 2010 and 2011 were fairly rough for most people. And that around the end of 2012, concurrent with Mayan predictions, was the beginning of the “mass awakening” of the world.
Sri and Amma Bhagavan, the founders of Oneness University, began an initiative of Oneness in 2007. Their goal was to have 70,000 people fully awakened by December 2012, and they reached their goal early, in August 2012. Since then, the numbers of people who are fully awakened, in awakened states, and living in presence has been growing steadily. According to the Oneness University, these are the statistics:
As of September 21st, 2012, there were:
114,000 People Awakened
262,000 People Living in the Presence
63 million People in Awakened States
As of September 21st, 2013, there were:
1,320,000 People Awakened
1,394,000 People Living in the Presence
600 million People in Awakened States
As of March 21st, 2014, there were:
1,910,000 People Awakened
2,602,000 People Living in the Presence
900 million People in Awakened States
As you can see, the numbers of people who are becoming more conscious and spiritual are growing rapidly each year. Websites such as Collective Evolution and TED that challenge how we currently think about the world are becoming increasingly popular. Individuals are collaborating more and using social power to bring down corrupt leaders. Crowd-sourcing and crowd-funding are becoming increasingly popular as well. We are getting further away from the idea of hierarchy and moving closer towards the idea of individual empowerment and collaboration to positively change the world.
What Catherine Scherwenka said really rang true to me. In 2009, I was severely depressed for many months to the point where I contemplated suicide. Throughout 2010 and 2011, I slowly became happier and more confident with myself. At the end of 2012, I had a positive life-changing experience and have continued to open and grow spiritually ever since. My intention of this blog is to share what I have learned with the world. I want to help others live a happier life and also hope to reach people who suffer from anxiety and depression, and to let them know that they are not alone, and that there is a way out.
