2012: How to Prepare for the Apocalypse

by Philip F. Harris (writer), Maine, January 12, 2012

What can you do to prepare for the events of 2012?

The first thing to do is not to panic. There will be no destruction of the entire planet and no rapture with billions left behind. However, if you at followed the news in 2011 and extend those events more dramatically into 2012, you will have a sense of what may happen in the coming months. Economies can’t rebound anymore as they are based upon false premises and the lies are rapidly catching up with themselves. As for climate change, we haven’t seen anything yet. Food production is becoming a major global issue as well as the supply of portable water. Those who have not been affected by a major and devastating storm have no clue what millions of others have experienced; their own personal Armageddon. Prophecies aside, these events have and will continue at an accelerated rate. More of this will occur in 2012.

Fear is your worst enemy in any crisis situation. In fact, fear will be the cause, as it has in the past, of much that will happen this coming year. You know yourself, wake up in a bad mood and the day is downhill from there. Wake up refreshed and happy and the day goes great. Now picture billions of people in a bad and fearful mood and …, well, you get the picture. Keep in mind, the inverse of this is also true. When things get bad enough, the latent power of the collective individual rises up and shakes off the chains that bind. It is just unfortunate that humanity lets things get so bad before it acts. So step one, stay calm and don’t buy into the fear. Like attracts like and if you get caught up in the frenzy, you may not get out.

Be prepared is step two. This does not mean put more money into savings, plan better for retirement and change your investment strategies. If the economy is in shambles, none of that matters. When we were hit by Hurricane Irene, we lost power for a week. We have a small generator to run basic appliances but it’s not big enough for the water pump. However, we always keep many gallons of water in storage. When most people plan for storms they think of drinking water, but do you know how water it takes to flush a toilet? We also have back up propane cook stoves and a sensible stock of canned and dried foods. Just knowing that you can weather a storm or other calamity reduces your fear factor. My advice is to keep enough stock on hand to get through a major disaster. What you may need will depend on your location, but if you are caught off guard, you may be in trouble. This is just common sense. And while you may think you aren’t in an area prone to weather/climate disasters, earthquakes can happen almost anywhere and most of your supplies come from areas that are prone to disasters. As far as cash and coin are concerned, having some on hand is not a bad thing, but in all likelihood, your skills or your things may be more important than money for a period of time. I am not trying to preach survivalist skills here but it never hurts to have dried/canned beans, rice, canned meats, PB, canned veggies, baking soda/powder, flour and fruit on hand. Also, if you have pets, they will also have needs. If in a cold climate can you get by if the furnace is out? Can you cook if no power? Do you have a medical emergency kit? Again, all common sense.

While you may manage to keep life and limb together with proper precautions, that is not the real issue in 2012. Sure, you want yourself and loved to be alive, but the band aid never cures the cut. In keeping with the concept in the “Matrix,” we are a virus on the planet. Like a cancer, we are killing our host: Earth. However, she’s a big girl and she will be around long after we’re gone as will other forms of life. We really are at a point, and somewhat past it, where each must choose how we will heal ourselves and the reality we created. So how does one avoid the worst? Here are some steps to take now:

1) Can’t say this enough: No Fear, No Panic. Either just attracts more of the same and can manifest in your life in many negative ways.

2) Set your intentions. If you don’t believe in the Law of Attraction, you are in trouble. Sorry, but you do create your reality and you are responsible for that reality. No finger pointing unless you’re looking in the mirror. Just humor me for these few short months and pretend that all is your life is your creation. Consider this an experiment that will not result in any negative consequence, but which may very well get you through the 2012 can throw at you. Every day, see yourself and those you love as safe, abundant, prosperous, filled with love, free of any ailment, immune to any negative events and protected and nurtured by a loving Universe that is ‘not out to get you.’

3) Act when guided. If an inner voice, intuition, gut feeling says to do something, DO IT! If it’s a move, job change, a change in habit or routine, an urge to visit or call someone, a desire to fulfill a dream, DO IT! When guided into action and you fail to act, the little voice get softer and softer. Listening to that urge, that voice, may well keep you safe and prosperous.

4) Be open to new ideas and ways of looking at the world. As we have all seen, fiction has often become reality. Be prepared to reject old ways of thinking, old paradigms and embrace new concepts. We have all been the victims of memes, cultural thought viruses that make us think we are powerless, there is no hope, and we don’t matter. Well, tell that to those who created the Arab Spring. Tell that to banks who have abandoned some new fees because people rose up. Tell that to the scientists and astronomers who are shaking the foundation of all previous thought. You not only do make a difference, you are the difference. The more that you accept that anything is possible, the more anything ‘is’ possible.

5) Participate by being in, but not of, this world. Number 4 is more of a personal step. This is more public. It doesn’t mean you have to hit the streets in protest, but it does mean that now is the time to make your intentions and feelings known to the world; help build a new meme, paradigm. Remember, you don’t want to be against something; that just adds more power to what you are against. What are you for? If you are reading this, you are on the internet. Are you for a better environment? Do you want clean and natural food for you and your children? Do you support clean energy, an end to pollution, peace, helping the poor, homeless, the hungry? Now is the time to promote and share your feelings. By being public about how you really feel, you are telling the Universe that you are serious about what you want. Form follows thought. What you focus on will attract the same. Actions can create results, inaction usually results in failure. Be in the world, but not of it. Don’t get emotionally caught up in headlines. But, if you don’t know the train is coming, you may not get off the tracks in time.

6) This may be a tough one for many, but there is no one who will save you. Just as you cannot blame anyone else for any troubles you may have, neither can you expect that someone or some thing is going to come along and get you out of any mess you may have created. You are responsible for your life; every last bit of it. You do not need saving. As a character in the Waking God Trilogy says, “It’s not about saving humanity, it never has been.” Get over the religious guilt trip; you are not evil by birth and in need of some kind of salvation. That is a cop out and the worn out dogma no longer serves you. You choose, every moment of your life, what the next moment will bring. If it were otherwise, you would just be a puppet on a string being played by some egotistical deity who just loves to torture its creation. And, if the aliens should come, they are probably not coming to save you either. Create you vision with all your heart and soul and miracles will be yours.

If you doubt any of these steps, I encourage you to do some research. Read some basic information on quantum physics. There is a lot out there that is not too technical and is easily understood. Look at what is really happening in medical research and discover the power of the mind to heal. Regardless of your politics, understand that ‘something’ is going on with the human spirit. From the Occupy movements to the Arab Spring, protests in Russia to the mass migration away from religious dogma, ‘something’ is happening. Read about climate change, look at the data, and see what is happening in the environment to plant and wildlife. Something big is going on. The ball is rolling down the hill and nothing will stop it. But, you do not have to be run over. You can choose to be out of the way and ensure that the ball never makes it to the top of the hill again. It is all happening now, now later!

I keep getting notices of comments, but there are no comments-so if I have not responded, it is not from lack of trying!

The so-called 'Law of Attraction' has no scientific proof. The equally intellectually bankrupt notion of a doomsday in 2012 because of the Mayan calendar is laughable. Please see either "Will the World End Dec. 21 2012?" or "What's Wrong with The Self Development Industry"

Sue it does-you were attracted here.Does matter attract matter? Do birds of a feather? Do Republicans form groups? Democrats? Fraternities?...Do people who are polar opposites hang out? Why are medical professionals saying that the mind is the most important healer? Have you even researched epigenetics?

I didn't say there was going to be a doomsday. I said all kinds of crap is coming done and only a fool would ignore it.

Well thought article…Whether, we believe in prophecy of doom or not but its true that Earth is not immune to various celestial happening in the universe.iT HAS HAPPENED IN THE PAST AND IT CAN HAPPEN...WE ARE LIVING IN A TURBULENT UNIVERSE The impact of any kind of change or sudden happening can impel disaster of a magnitude which can be equated with doom. The man has survived then too and this time also… The points as enumerated about the preparation are valid. I would like to add that as a young officer while serving the Indian Army I had undergone the Commando Training and there during the training we were trained to believe that this body can endure a lot…Our body has all the inherent requisite functional elements which can make us and adapt to the conditions very fast…and that’s only possible if one can mentally endure the sudden destruction, change and deal with absolute sense to survive. Now the question is how long one can live with stocked food…About this one need to read a lot and gather huge information which is available in books and Net…One need to understand how to survive and living off the land…The kind of conditions we envisage may not be the only one…There can be many more life threatening things that would emerge even if one survive the dooms day…To survive he has to live on …He has to think…he has to act swiftly …Think of all the contingencies… be mentally prepared for unforeseen eventualities…When it comes to survival we have our body and mind to think and act…Never give up…At the earliest disengage yourself from the turbulent zone…and try to reach at safe place…If nature has the power to destroy it has also with in it many things which will help you survive…The Golden rule is NEVER GIVE UP…preserving a life amidst all chaos is a miracle and it is as good as creating a life…YOU CAN DO IT…NEVER GIVE UP

Well spoken. And one must keep in mind things like the 18 foot snow storm in Alaska; the tsunami in Japan; record rates of tornados, earthquakes, floods, drought---just read the news. I do not believe in world-wide doomsday, but certainly such events listed are doomsday for millions. Just asking all to be prepared-mentally and physically for the ever increasing number of disastrous events.

i'm prepared. I just went out and purchased a 'standing room'only ticket to the 'long playing' musical "the end is nigh! nigh! nigh! nigh!...nigh impossible to predict." Don't worry be happy.i have stockpiled 7 billion cans of bake beans.Can that amount of cans cancel doom and gloom. Or is that a half- baked idea. Some tin to tink about? All doomsday means is that you get to meet your maker sooner and you can't can that? Or can you? Where's Noah when you need him? I thought the only safe place to be when the world ends is in God's hands...and thank heaven for that. The ring pull just broke,now where's that can opener? NOW WATT AROUND THE GLOBE? En light en me.

Changes are happening, they're just not all at once. Just look at the headlines, weather reports. Just stay alert to unfolding events.

You're correct Phil. I totally agree. Does mankind really deserve its elevated place in the world? Or does a mortally wounded world deserve the right to put mankind in its box...(which seems to be happening with monotonous regularity) A rectangular argument we can't possibly win if we don't get rid of our unhinged desire to strip nature bare and "to hell with the consequence of technological advancement/production" at the expense of our once pristine 'God given' surrounds? The rectangular box awaits.It's a mad mad bad world but i love it...just a bit hard sometimes for it to love us back i guess.Too busy crying out "desist! wake up and sense my grief!" Nice talking to you keep up the good work. Cheers.
