Today, the 2012 phenomenon has taken center age.
And for at least the next few years any challenge or mystery associated with human life on earth will in some way be attributed to the 2012 phenomenon.
Basically, the 2012 phenomenon consists of a range of beliefs and proposals that suggest that one or more transformative events will occur in the year 2012.
With an emphasis upon December 21st (the winter solstice) as the most significant day of the year. The 2012 phenomenon is not new and has been a part of human archaeo-astronomical speculation since at least 3113 BCE, approximately measured in astronomical years. December 21st, 2012 is the last day of the fifth world in the Mayan Long Count calendar, the end of a 5,125-year cycle. Other pre-Columbian Mesoamerican cultures used similar calendars, and had alternate beliefs about the calendar's creation and purpose. Some of these include mythical creation dates, numerological constructions, and prophecies from extraterrestrial beings.
The Mayan calendar included calendars and almanacs that were used to determine what day it was, whether it was a civil or ceremonial (divine) day, what god ruled the day, and how well the crops might fare in a given cycle.
It is important to note that the Mayan calendar, as it is called today did not originate with the Maya, but with their ancestors, the Toltec and the ones before them as well. One version of the calendar took into account not only the date, but also the influence of time upon the linear relationship with respect to the distant past and the far future. From a mythical starting point (origination), the calendar was capable of referring to, or predicting with great accuracy, the relationship of any one date to another, or to the calendar itself. That is how they arrived at December 21st as the End of the Fifth World. The Maya also kept track of lunar cycles and the cycles of other planets, most specifically that of Venus.
The Mayan culture and calendar has been a grand teacher for humanity, and a specific point of reference for spiritualists, New Age thinkers, futurists, and other students of life. The New Age interpretation of the 2012 phenomenon is strongly rooted in the Mayan culture, but divided in their beliefs. While some believe that the earth and its inhabitants (some or all) will undergo a physical and spiritual transformation that will mark the beginning of new era, others believe that the 2012 date marks the beginning of a destructive and apocalyptical time of great change in which humanity is further divided, challenged, adversely by nature and other forces, and vastly reduced in number.
Nowhere does it say "The Earth Will End" on December 21st 2012.
" Beyond 2012 "
Both ideas continue to proliferate, producing offspring theories and conjectures that perplex, mystify and frighten logical thinkers and irrational theorists alike. Interestingly, the classic Mayan calendar does not suggest or predict impending doom or specific catastrophes of any kind. Even among modern Mayans there is little universal agreement about what, if anything, the date might mean or bring.
Attempts by academics such as astronomers and natural scientists to dispel 2012 theories and rumors have been almost completely unsuccessful. Contemporary mainstream scholars continue to reject apocalyptic forecasts, arguing that the date is largely irrelevant and that acceptable or available source material is scarce, contradictory and unsubstantiated. The intellectually elite liken fears about 2012 to those that surfaced around the year 2000, even though the year 2000 was a "manmade" event, citing this reference as an adequate analysis of the phenomenon, and yet the phenomenon persists.
Why? One thing to alway's remember – modern day scientists have this almost superior view of things, as if they are all seeing – all knowing, but as you research more on a given subject, they are one of those groups of society that probably can't agree on anything ! And so we wil leave them to argue amongst themselves and look at what has been passed down to us in the past and also what knowledge is appearing now. As in all things you are recommended to review everything with "discernment", view it with an open mind, and if it feels right, go with that flow. As with all knowledge…

2012 – Mayan Prophecy
Many of us are aware of the Mayan calendar but not many people truly understand what it means and how it works. Yes the calendar does end on December 21, 2012, but what does that mean? How does it come to that? What is their calendar based off of?
The Mayans had a very precise understanding of our solar system's cycles and believed that these cycles coincided with our spiritual and collective consciousness. The most significant of which has much to do with the 2012 prophecies. In the following writing, we will walk through the main details of their prophecies surrounding the 2012 transition. How the transition takes place (from an astronomical perspective), what it means for us, and when the cycles take place.
We'll start with the basic prophecies and later move deeper into the explanation of the cycles.
The Mayans prophesied that from 1999 we have 13 years to realize the changes in our conscious attitude to stray from the path of self-destruction and instead move onto a path that opens our consciousness to integrate us with all that exists. The Mayans knew that our Sun, or Kinich-Ahau, every so often synchronized with the enormous central galaxy. And from this central galaxy received a 'spark' of light which causes the Sun to shine more intensely producing what our scientists call 'solar flares' as well as changes in the Sun's magnetic field.
The Mayans say that this happens every 5,125 years. But also that this causes a displacement in the earths rotation, and because of this movement great catastrophes would be produced.
The Mayans believed the universal processes, like the 'breathing' of the galaxy, are cycles that never change. What changes is the consciousness of man that passes through it. Always in a process toward more perfection. Based on their observations, the Mayans predicted that from the initial date of the start of their civilization, 4 Ahau, 8 Cumku which is 3113 B.C., after one cycle being completed 5,125 years in their future, December 21st, 2012. The Sun, having received a powerful ray of synchronizing light from the center of the galaxy, would change its polarity which would produce a great cosmic event that would propel human kind to be ready to cross into a new era, The Golden Age.
It is after this, that the Mayans say we will be ready to go through the door that was left by them, transforming our civilization based on fear to a vibration much higher in harmony. Only from our individual efforts could we avoid the path to great cataclysm that our planet will suffer to start a new era, the sixth cycle of the Sun. The Mayan civilization was in the fifth cycle of the Sun, and there were four other great civilizations before them that were destroyed by great natural disasters.
They believed that each cycle was just one stage in the collective consciousness of humanity. In the last cataclysm of the Mayans, the civilization was destroyed by a great flood that left little survivors of which were their descendants. They believed that having known the end of their cycle, mankind would prepare for what is to come in the future and it is because of this that they would have preserved the dominant species; the human race. They say that coming changes will permit us to make a quantum leap forward in the evolution of our consciousness to create a new civilization that would manifest great harmony and compassion to all humankind.
Their first prophecy talks about 'The Time of No-Time'. A period of 20 years, which they call a Katún. The last 20 years of the Sun's cycle of 5,125 years. This cycle is from 1992 – 2012. I'll explain this in greater detail later.
They predicted that during these times, solar winds would become more intense and could be seen on the Sun. This would be a time of great realization and great change for mankind. And it would be our own lack of preservation and contamination of the planet that would contribute to these changes. According to the Mayans, these changes would happen so that mankind comprehends how the universe works so we could advance to superior levels, leaving behind superficial materialism and liberating ourselves from suffering.
The Mayans say, that seven years after the start of Katún, which is to say 1999, we would enter a time of darkness which would force us to confront our own conduct. They say that this is the time when mankind will enter 'The Sacred Hall of Mirrors'. Where we will look at ourselves and analyze our behaviors with ourselves, with others, with nature and with the planet in which we live. A time in which all of humanity, by individual conscious decisions, decides to change and eliminate fear and lack of respect from all of our relationships.
The Mayans prophesied that the start of this period would be marked by a solar eclipse on August 11, 1999, known to them as 13 Ahau, 8 Cauac. And would coincide with an unprecedented planetary alignment, the 'Grand Cross' alignment. This would be the last 13 years of the Katón period. The last opportunity for our civilization to realize the changes that are coming at the moment of our spiritual regeneration.
For the Mayans, everything is numbers and the time of the 13 sacred numbers started in August 1999. They predicted that along with the eclipse, the forces of nature would act like a catalyst of changes so accelerated and with such magnitude that mankind would be powerless against them. Also, that our technologies in which we rely on so much would begin to fail us. We would no longer be able to learn from our civilization in the way that we are organized as a society.
They said that our internal, spiritual development would require a better place along with a better way to interact with more respect and compassion.
The first prophecies were attained by their study of our Sun. The Mayans discovered that the entire solar system moved. That even our universe has its own cycles. Repetitive periods which begin and end like our day and night. These discoveries lead to the understanding that our solar system rotates on an ellipse that brings our solar system closer and further from the center of the galaxy. In other words, according to the Mayans, our Sun and all of its planets rotate in cycles in relation to the center of the galaxy or Hunab-Kú, the central light of the galaxy.
It takes 25,625 years for our solar system to make one cycle on this ellipse. One complete cycle is called a galactic day. The cycle is divided into two halves similar to our day and night. The half closest to the central light, is our solar system's 'day' and the half furthest away is its 'night'. Each day and each night lasts 12,800 years. Which is to say, the central galaxy is the Sun for our entire solar system.
The Mayans discovered that every grand cycle has its minor cycles, that carry the same characteristics. One galactic day of 25,625 years is divided into five cycles of 5,125 years.
The first cycle… is the galactic morning. When our solar system is just coming out of the darkness to enter the light.
The second cycle… is the mid-day. When our solar system is closest to the central light.
The third cycle… is the afternoon. When our solar system begins to come out of the light.
The fourth cycle… is the late-night. When our solar system has entered its furthest cycle from the central light.
And the fifth and last cycle… is night before dawn. When are solar system is in its last cycle of darkness before starting again.
This is the cycle we are currently coming out of.
The Mayan prophecy tells us that in 1999, our solar system began to leave the end of the fifth cycle which started in 3113 B.C. and that we find ourselves in the morning of our galactic day, exiting darkness and on the verge of being in plain day of our central galaxy in 2012. They say that at the beginning and end of these cycles, which is to say, every 5,125 years, the central sun or light of the galaxy emits a ray of light so intense and so brilliant that it illuminates the entire universe.
It is from this burst of light that all of the Suns and planets sync. The Mayans compare this burst to the pulse of the universe, beating once every 5,125 years. It is these pulses that mark the end of one cycle and the beginning of the next. Each pulse lasting 20 years, a Katún. So we come back to what they call 'The Time of No Time'. It is an evolutionary period, short but intense, inside the grand cycles where great changes take place to thrust us into a new age of evolution as individuals and as mankind.
As individuals we will have to make decisions that will affect us all. If we continue on this negative path of hate, an eye for an eye, destruction of nature, of fear and egoism, we will enter straight into the time of destruction and chaos, and we will disappear as the dominant race of this planet. If we become conscious and realize that we all form part of a great organism, and that we should respect one another and be grateful to our planet, then we will move directly into positive growth, our Golden Age.
Our planet, the Sun and the Galaxy are awaiting our decision. It is up to us what will happen in this time of change. Whether we go through a time of suffering and destruction or we find ourselves united in one positive consciousness moving closer to our next stage. Please notice the events of our planet as evidence that the Mayan prophecies are worth listening to and learning from. Share this information and help us all move toward a better future, where we can thrive in a new era of positivity.
2012 . It has never been so important. Next………………………….. "WAKE UP !"
