A Consciousness Shift is a sudden transformation in one's thinking. It is an all-at-once realization that there is a better way to do something than what you've habitually done.
Year 2012, according to Native American prophecies, is a time for a major Consciousness Shift. It is the time when Humans once again learn Equilibrium with their Environment, or else they don't, and they Perish.
The Only Way for there to be a Planetary Consciousness Shift is if 7 Billion Humans each have Individual Consciousness Shifts. One Big Shift means billions of smaller ones.
Experience a Consciousness Shift everyday. Think critically about your every action. How many lights do you have on in your house? Do you need all the plastic bags to carry your groceries in or can you use cloth bags? Why buy bottled sodas when water is free? Why use disposable cups when you can carry one with you? How high up do you need to set your thermostat? Do you recycle? Have you tried composting? Are you eating healthy, delicious meals? How much "throw away money" do you spend every day? Do you need to smoke? Buy drinks at a bar? Buy coffee?
