The Legend of Lemuria is one of an ancient lost civilization which existed prior to and during the time of Atlantis. Physically, it is believed that it existed largely in the Southern Pacific, between North America and Asia/Australia. Lemuria is also sometimes referred to as Mu, or the Motherland (of Mu). At the peak of it's civilization, the Lemurian people were both highly evolved and very spiritual. While concrete physical evidence of this ancient continent may be difficult to find, many people "know" that they have a strong connection to Lemuria.
Approximately 14,000 years ago, the culture known as Lemuria was thriving. (Prior to 2000 years ago, data and time recordings were not taken – so all times are approximate). There were also other cultures on Earth, such as Atlantis, which were thriving as well. The holy people or the prophets of the time began to be realize that something was changing. They began receiving information that the Earth was going to go through a very dramatic shift. The shift that they were referring to was what you call the Great Flood. Also known as the destruction of Atlantis.
