What are the Five Worlds? They are the Spirit, Mineral, Plant, Animal and Human Worlds. According to Mayan and Hopi traditions, the Fifth World is being born right now! This marks a culmination point in history that has been foretold by all the Spiritual Traditions. It marks the awakening of human consciousness, wherein humans become the Caretakers of the Earth. It is both a painful and beautiful time, as we give birth to a New Era... "We are the ones we've been waiting for", the Hopi Elders tell us!
