So many people keep seeing that channelings are saying that things will happen soon. They often wonder when soon really is and why a date isn't given. They also wonder why when a date is given that what they thought would happen, didn't happen. Let me explain why this is. First, let me say that the word "soon" is used because time is an ILLUSION, but when referencing the shift itself, where we are in the middle part of the 3D/5D gradient, and after the shift when we are in 5D predominantly, is December of this year. This is my perception on it and MANY people share this reality as well. A strong shared reality will help to make that reality the one that they will experience. So many people are saying they can't see past December. So many people are talking about 12/12/12 and 12/21/12. So many people are talking about this and that. It helps to make that reality the one that will manifest for them. Soon is in perspective and isn't a definitive date. Its simply soon.
As for the dates that are given and they find that things didn't happen for them, keep in mind that at many things could have happened. Either they were following misinformation, or they weren't allowing their selves to partake in that reality or they simply didn't notice the change or misinterpreted it.
As always, YOU are the one in control of YOUR reality. Experience what you WISH to experience by manifesting it. Not all manifestation is instant.
