2012 is a year that many people fear. 2012 predictions & theories, and 2012 prophecies regarding the end of the world are over-exaggerated. 2012 can be a great year. Start thinking positive about 2012. Read on to learn more about positive 2012 predictions, 2012 prophecies, and 2012 theories that don't deal with the 'end of the world'.

December 21, 2012 - the end of the world, the apocalypse...or is it? If you're like most people in the world you have probably been slapped in the face several times now by alarmist, apocalyptic theories about the hysteria that is 2012. And like most people, you take the slap right in the face every time without even putting up a fight. The hysteria has been taken so far that a lot of people genuinely believe that there is definitive evidence that 2012 will be the end of times. With the History and Discovery Channels shoving the apocalypse down our throats without providing any real proof or alternative theories, it makes me wonder how they are not criticized for inducing panic.

Hysteria is nothing new to our culture, or any culture for that matter. As far back as recorded history goes, man has been obsessed with the end of the world. Theories and prophecies about global warming, global cooling, asteroids, Y2K, World War III, nuclear winter, and terrorism are just a few examples that might ring a bell.

One needs to realize that they can't believe everything they see on TV, and to hear both sides of the story before making a conclusion. It goes against everything science stands for to just blindly believe a theory without doing your own research and hearing opposing views. It's time for you to get your facts straight about 2012 and stop worrying, and here's how...

Clear Your Mind

Before doing anything you need to try to clear your mind of all negative thoughts regarding 2012. Forget all the hysteria and start with a blank, open mind. If it helps, remind yourself that the apocalyptic theories have little to no solid evidence behind them.

Think Outside The Box

After clearing your mind, you need to realize why so many negative theories exist to begin with. Understand that the History and Discovery Channels are there for our entertainment, first and foremost, and that they are more likely to air theories and scenarios about the end of the world because that is what they can make the most money off of. In other words, they have an agenda. It's almost as if each show is competing with the last one to be more frightening and seemingly "the most likely scenario". It's easy to blindly give in to terrorizing alarmist theories. It's also something that some of us crave in a weird way from time to time. However, it takes a strong mind to look past what the TV tells them and form their own conclusion based off of proven facts.

Research Mayan Culture

If you think you know enough about Mayan cultures and STILL believe in the 2012 apocalyptic theories, then you obviously haven't done enough research yet. Look up some unbiased information on Mayan culture and you will soon feel a little safer after learning the Mayans never once predicted the end of the world, but rather the end of a solar cycle. Also, the Mayans don't even have a word in their language to describe the apocalypse. They simply never thought about "the end of the world". In their line of thinking, the world never ends. Everything is a cycle.

Research Alternative 2012 Theories

Alright, we've all heard the numerous fear-mongering theories about 2012. The world's going to end, we're all going to die, run for your lives, and so on. Now that you know more about the Mayans and have a clear and open mind, why not start thinking positive for a change? You will be pleased to discover that there are several reputable researchers, historians, and scientists who think if anything happens in 2012, it's more likely to be positive.

You know about all the negative 2012 predictions, but what about the positive 2012 predictions? They do exist, afterall. A few positive predictions to look forward to include:

  • groundbreaking technological, scientific, medical, psychological, and space advances
  • a global shift in consciousness
  • a global realization of psychic ability
  • proof of extra terrestrial life
  • the beginning of world peace
  • the discovery of the missing link
  • proof of no religion being correct
  • massive advances in stem cell research

And the list goes on. Why believe in negative theories when there are so many positive ones to choose from?

Spark 2012 Discussions With Others

Now that you are chock-full of information about positive 2012 theories, try discussing them with friends and loved ones. Convince them that positive theories do exist, and educate them. By discussing and debating the topic, you are strengthening your belief, making it easier to stay positive about it all.

Don't Obsess About 2012

An easy mistake to make would be to start obsessing over 2012 in general. Understand that whatever happens, happens. There is no use wasting energy by stressing over something that may not even happen, or something you have no control over. Live for today, because you never know for sure if you're even still going to be around for 2012. Even if you do believe something horrible is going to happen, you should not stress about it and just live your life to the fullest until 2012. Stress is not healthy and should be avoided whenever possible.

Form Your Conclusion

After doing these things and learning as much as you can about positive 2012 theories, now you can make your conclusion. I'm not here to say what's right and what's wrong. They are all "theories" so it is up to you to gather the facts and draw your own conclusion based on them. Though one must ask themselves if it is worth believing in any theory at all. In the end, does it really matter? Life is unpredictable. For all anyone knows, December 21, 2012 could just be another regular day. Afterall, remember Y2K and all the "hard evidence" backing that theory up? And what happened on January 1, 2000? We watched TV, we used appliances, we surfed the web, we lived to see yet another normal, average day.
