Somewhere in the late 1980s we started noticing some things changing in the world. It quickly became apparent that the changes were far bigger than we had initially understood. When we studied the changing energies, we realized that the world was going thru a major Shift, from one way of being into something completely new. That is, an entirely new world was being born, and we were in the middle of it. We started, early on, calling it "The Shift" because that name *felt* right. Around that same time a large number of others around the world began to notice and talk about the same changes. Almost everyone referred to them as "The Shift," "The Great Shift," or "The Shift of the Ages."
