The seven building blocks of reality are: Thought and Belief, Emotions, Intentions, Relationships, Turning Points and Breakthroughs, Environment, and Vision. These factors must be alive in order for any world to be born, not just the new one we want to create for peace.
Whenever consciousness is ready for a shift, you will see ferment and turmoil in all these areas. The established order will be challenged, and working from the silent and invisible level of consciousness, a new order will begin to emerge.
It feels like a mystical process, because no one controls the switch and yet everyone does. A common desire wakes up without people knowing that they are invisibly linked.
The new world that is now emerging, one based on peace, will be unique. Other worlds were born because of shared religions (the Christian Middle Ages, for example) or shared technology (Western industrialism, for example), but none was completely global.
The key words that will define the new hierarchy are: Conscious Evolution, Self-Determination, Non-Military, Non-Sectarian, Global Sharing, Sustainable Economies, and Healed Environments. These separate trends are going to link and fuse as they coalesce.
