Ancient Wisdom is the energy and understanding available on Earth prior to the emergence of Departing energy. We live in a time of great shift and the following explains the basis for the change we all experiencing.

Defiance to Failure #2: Small Steps

It would be easy to say that what happened today was coincidence. Meaning that there was simply chance or happenstance involved. A fluke. Instead I believe today was one of synchronicity.
