    The Mayan Calendar speaks of the end of time on December 21, 2012

    The Maya kept time with a combination of several cycles that meshed together to mark the movement ofthe sun, moon and Venus. Their ritual calendar, known as the Tzolkin, was composed of 260 days. It

    pairs the numbers from 1 through 13 with a sequence of the 20 day-names shown below. It workssomething like our days of the week pairing with the numbers of the month.

    Thus you might have 1-Imix (similar to Sunday the 1st) followed by 2-Ik (just as you would have Mondaythe 2nd). When you get to 13-Ben, the next day would start the numbers over again, thus 1-Ix, 2-Men etc.It will take 260 days before the cycle gets back to 1-Imix again (13 x 20).

    The symbols shown below represent the 20 day-names and are identified with their Yucatec names,pronunciation and approximate translation. The name, meaning and symbol can vary in different Mayalanguages. Also, each day can be represented with more elaborate glyphs known as "Head Variants" - aformal writing system which can be loosely compared to our script alphabet versus our print alphabet.

    Using a vestigial system (they counted all the fingers and toes) and only three characters (we use ten) theMaya could string together very large numbers, these were read from the bottom up.

    So Pakal ascended on 9-9-2-4-8, that would read:

    9 baktuns - 3600 years9 katuns - 180 years2 tuns - 730 days4 uinals - 80 days

    8 kin - 8 days

    These numbers, if we begin at August 13, 3114 BC, will give us a date in the 7th century that correspondsto the date Pakal took the throne in Palenque.

    The Maya also understood the concept of zero, and wrote it like a shell.

    With the new century almost upon us time takes on more meaning. January 1, 2000 would be written12-19-6-1-0in the Long Count. The Sacred Round would be 9 Ahau and the Haab designation would be 8Kankin. Thus the Calendar Round would be 9 Ahau 8 Kankin.

    So for the Maya there was a time for everything and every thing had it's place in time. The priest used thisto their advantage; due to their abilities to interpret the heavens and calendar, they could control the daily

    activities of the populace. Knowing when to plant, when to harvest, the rainy and dry seasons, etc. gavethem total power and control. Their comprehension of time, seasons, and cycles was immense. If thereader is interested in further studies in this (admittedly, complex!) area, I recommend Linda Shele's finebooks, A Forest of Kingsand The Blood of Kings.

    The Wheels of Timeground exceeding fine for the Maya. To be able to predict the seasons for farmersand astronomical events for religious rites, they utilized a calendar of two meshing, repeating cycles.Maya mathematicians could project this calendar mill ions of years in the past and the future, time had nobeginning, no end. The Mays recorded numbers with a system of bars and dots. a dot equals one, a barstands for five.

    The smaller wheels together represent the 260-day Sacred Round; the inner wheel, with the numbers one

    to thirteen, meshes with the glyphs for the 20 day names on the outer wheel. A section of a large wheelrepresents part of the 365-day year - 18 months of 20 days each (numbered 0-19). The five daysremaining at year's end were considered evil. In the diagram, the day shown is read 4 Ahua 8 Cumka. Asthe wheels turn in the direction of the arrows, in four days it will read 8 Kan 12 Cumku. Any day calculatedon these cycles would not repeat for 18,980 days - 52 years.

    A steadily quickening flow of earth changes has become so apparent in 1995 that even traditional mediaare paying attention. Earth transformation was the cause of celebration of the Harmonic Convergenceinitiated by Jose and Lloydine Arguelles in August, 1987, and the Time Shifton July 26, 1992. The Time

    Shift marked the time in history when the planet entered a new sequencing of energy that after amagnetic pole shift in 2000, will be complete in December, 2012. With the energy sequencing complete in2012, Timeship Earthwill launch her voyage into fourth dimensional time in 2013.

    The map of planetary transformation into a new dimensional time stream was plotted in the Mayancalendar and interpreted by Jose and Lloydine in the Dreamspell. In the 1950s, Euro-Americanastronomers ran headlong into the stunning reality that Native Americans were masters of a sophisticatedastronomy previously unrecognized. Since the New World was conquered, the Europeans had believedthat Native Americans were ignorant of astronomy.

    In fact, the Native American concept was completely different than the European and thus not recognized.

    Where European astronomers tracked large objects, such as the sun and moon, in direct courses, theNative Americans tracked small objects relative to large objects, a far more complex and accuratesystem. The two systems perceived the heavens from such radically different view points, that theEuropeans did not recognize the Native American system as astronomy.


    The Ancient Maya, and the remains of their cosmic culture, are still enshrouded in mystery and confusion.To this day, much of what archeologists base their findings upon is founded on guesses, not facts.Theories and speculations fill the history books. It looks like we may never understand what the Maya aresaying to us. Like a giant cosmic joke, the riddles and puzzles left behind by the Maya are still as much ofa mystery today, as they were when they were first discovered by the Spanish.

    Maybe understanding the Tzolk'in with only the mental body was not the approach the Mayas themselvesintended. As we can see, the archeologists are still guessing, with decades of research behind them. Ifthe Maya intended us to understand their knowledge of the universe, they would have to leave remainsbehind that would bridge all cultures, languages, and all levels of education.

    This is what the Maya have done. Without a doubt I can tell you the knowledge of the cosmos is availableto all. It is available to those who can open their hearts to the wonder and curiosity of the universe onceagain. The encoding of the calendar is intuitive and is remembered with feelings. It is also very mentaland can be learned with study. As daykeeper, Hunbatz Men has told me, we need to use all our bodies toremember everything. The physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies are needed. Without desire,wonder and curiosity there is no intention to remember.

    Without study there is no understanding. To reconnect to the cosmos and receive information from theSun, as the Maya do, one must not only place intention by physical study, but desire to remember! As wemove our physical bodies into action to study, the intuitive side will just kick in, but desire is mostimportant and quite essential. That's it! This is what the Maya intended.

    The calendar with it's twenty Sun/glyphs are cosmic memory activation tools that intuitively interacts withyour body's memory, your DNA. The calendar is not only an incredibly accurate map of the cycles of thecosmos, but is also a tool to accelerate and activate your memory into recalling the truth behind themystery of the cosmos.

    Each glyph is charged with precise information in the form of feelings or emotions to help active you in avery personal and individual way. Each person will remember their own personal perspective of the truthbased on their place in the calendar system. This is not something you need to learn, it is something you

    will remember.

    So here we are, all of us just itching to remember. We have a haunting feeling of something forgottenlooming just out of reach, lying just beyond the veil of our own created, limiting reality. I am asking you tohave to courage to plow thought this barrier of limitation and remember the totality of who you are, to livein your own personal integrity.

    You will need to commit to this for a while. Memory activation does not create instant results. Activationtakes place in stages and layers. At first you will find the sacred calendar quite mental. If you find yourself

    mentally fuzzing out when you begin to place your attention on these teachings, understand that this is acommon problem. You are just coming face to face with your own personal limitation program. You arehitting a time/space dimensional barrier and your body is saying "I can't do this, I can't remembereverything. I can't be limitless." I say you can, and you will. It is you destiny to do so.

    This is a new year challenge. Commit yourself to remembering the totality of who you are by followingthese calendars for one earth cycle, just a short 365 days. Place your intention for just a few minutesevery day on the Mayan day instead of the linear Gregorian day. Get your body cycling with the cosmosagain, instead of the ticking clock.

    Move into the undulating, spiraling, ascending energy of the cosmos. Watch the sun rise and set. Watchthe moon rise and set. Soon you will begin to dream with more detail. You will feel more deeply.

    Understand more clearly. You will feel a part of a much bigger whole. You will remember little pieces ofinformation. They will just pop into you head. If this sounds good to you, lets get started.

    The Basics of the Mayan Calendar

    The Maya understood 17 different Calendars based on the Cosmos. Some of these calendars go back asfar as ten million years and are so difficult that you would need an astronomer, astrologer, geologist, anda mathematician just to work out the calculations. Lucky for us we only need to work with three of thesecalendars. The calendars that are most important to beings of earth are the Haab, the Tun-Uc and theTzolk'in. The Tzolk'in is the most important and the one with the most influence.

    The Haab is based in the cycles of earth. It has 360 + 5 days, totaling 365 days. The Haab uses 18months with 20 days in each month. There is a 19th month called a Vayeb and uses the 5 extra days.Each month has it's own name/glyph. Each day uses a sacred sun/glyph.

    The Tun-Uc is the moon calendar. It uses 28 day cycles that mirrors the women's moon cycle. This cycleof the moon is broken down into 4 smaller cycles, of 7 day each. These smaller cycles are the fourphases of moon cycle. Portal days (p), on the calendar provided marks days using mathematics of 28 andtheir fore have a connection with the moon cycles.

    The Tzolk'in is the Sacred calendar of the Maya and is based on the cycles of the Pleiadies. The cycle ofthe Pleiadies uses 26,000 years, but is reflected in the calendar we are using by encompassing 260 days.It uses the sacred numbers 13 and 20. The 13 represents the numbers and 20 represents the sun/glyphs.

    The Tzolk'in has four smaller cycles called seasons of 65 days each guarded by the four suns ofChicchan, Oc, Men and Ahau. There are also Portal days within the Tzolkin that create a double helixpattern using 52 days and the mathematics of 28. This sacred calendar is still being used for divination bythe traditional Maya all over the Yucatan, Guatemala, and Belize, and Honduras.

    The Tzolkin calendar was meshed with a 365-day solar cycle called the "Haab". The calendar consisted of18 months with 20 days (numbered 0-19) and a short "month" of only 5 days that was called the Wayeband was considered to be a dangerous time. It took 52 years for the Tzolkin and Haab calendars to movethrough a complete cycle.

    These are the Mayan words for periods of time:

    Day = Kin (keen)Month of 20 days = Uinal (wee nal)Year of 360 days = Tun (toon)20 Tuns = K'atun (k' ah toon)20 K'atuns = Baktun (bock toon)

    During their stay on Earth the Cosmic Maya carried the burden of time. Cosmically aware of the cycles oftime, they were bound, as we are, by walking through time in a linear fashion. They were aware that

    beings of Earth had lost the natural ability to ride the cycles of time/light/energy, to time travel.

    It is also known by the Cosmic Mayathat this present linear fashion of time will transform intomultidimensionality, and will not be limited to linear time on Earth much longer. Isn't this the reason wecame here to remember and to witness this event? Do you remember?

    Mayan Calendars

    Maya priests observed the positions of the sun, moon, and stars.

    They made tables predicting eclipses and the orbit of the planet Venus.

    The priests also used mathematics and astronomy to develop two kinds of calendars. One was a sacred

    almanac of 260 days. Each day was named with one of 20 day names and a number from 1 to 13. Eachof the 20 day names had a god or goddess associated with it.

    The priests predicted good or bad luck by studying the combinations of gods or goddesses and numbers.The Maya also had a calendar of 365 days, based on the orbit of the earth around the sun. These dayswere divided into 18 months of 20 days each, plus 5 days at the end of the year.

    The Maya considered these last 5 days of the year to be extremely unlucky. During that period theyfasted, made many sacrifices, and avoided unnecessary work.

    The Maya Indians of southern Mexico and Central America used mathematics and astronomicalobservations to formulate two kinds of calendars--a sacred almanac of 260 days and a solar calendar of

    365 days.

    Jose Arguelles

    Born of Mexican-American descent, the Mayan calendar became a childhood passion for Jose Arguellesin the 1950s during the decade in which astronomers began to realize that Native Americans practiced asophisticated astronomy. After more than 30 years of research, he is known by many as one of theworld's foremost authorities of the Mayan calendar.

    The overwhelming evidence of Mayan prophecy in the last decade of the millennia supports the accuracy

    of the calendar and the Arguelles' interpretation of the Dreamspelland Time Shiftof July 26, 1992. Afterperceiving the final sequencing of the Mayan calendar in 1987, the Time Shift in 1992 was an adjustmentof the annual calendar's be ginning to July 26, so that the Dreamspell New Year falls on that date eachyear.

    Since the codices of the Maya were destroyed in the European Conquest, the tables of dates andinterpretations of codes were mostly destroyed. The few surviving codices are still "owned" by Europeanmuseums and removed from the Maya, who have the cultural framework for interpreting them. During the500 years since the Conquest, various Mayan tribes have adopted various new- year dates and


    In 1992, the University of Guatemala identified the July 26 date based on an eclipse of July 11, 1991 andthe Dresden Codex. The Arguelles' interpreted that date as the new beginning of the solar year. Themonth of July has heralded major earth changes and astronomical events since 1992. The mostdevastating storm season in history started with Hurricane Andrew immediately after the Time Shift in1992.

    The flooding of the American Midwest broke all records in July, 1993. In July 1994, the Comet Shoemaker-Levy collided with Jupiter. In July, 1995, the Comet Hale-Bopp became visible near Jupiter on amateurtelescopes.

    Photographs of this comet reveal a spiral formation at times and a square in the comet at other times.Reports of this comet were rumored as far back as 1985 from military sources, that it came close enoughto be seen by amateurs in July may be a measure of a larger timing cycle. The sheer weight of physicalevidence leans heavily towards the accuracy of Jose and Lloydine's July 26, 1992 date as the point whena new sequencing of planetary time and, therefore events, accelerated.

    Equating an end-date for the Mayan calendar round with a date in the European-based Gregorian systemhas been a heartbreaker for astronomers. Since the European and Native American systems are sodifferent, the only truly accurate method of synchronizing the two was to identify a significant astronomicalevent, such as an eclipse, recorded on both calendars.

    This has been impossible due to differences in locations and calendars until July 11, 1991. "In 755 A.D.Maya Priests prophesied the total solar eclipse of July 11, 1991 would herald two life altering events forhumankind: Cosmic Awareness and Earth Changes. Shortly after 1:00 P.M., on July 11th, the prophecybegan unfolding.

    Beneath the eclipse of the century, that Mayas had labeled 'The Sixth Sun', a silvery disc shaped objecthovered silently above the world's largest city. 17 different people, unknown to each other, in deferentlocations of Mexico City, videotaped the structured ship - Cosmic Awareness had begun.

    The wave of UFO activity continued in the skies over Mexico and, due to the video camcorder, becamethe most documented mass sighting ever.

    For months, a team of international investigators from the U.S., Mexico, and Japan followed the trail ofthe UFO sightings through the volcano zone to Mount Popocateptl, the fourth largest volcano in the

    world... Once dormant... Now awakening...' (Messengers of Destiny Video, Genesis Ill).

    Based on the July, 1991 eclipse, Jose & Lloydine identified the July 26, 1992, Time Shift. Using aday-by-day count, Euro-American astronomers could finally synchronize their calendars with the MayaPriests. The visitors from the sky that Jose called the Galactic Mayain 'The Mayan Factor', had madegood on their promise to return on that date and evidenced the reality of galactic culture that Joseprophesied in his 1988 letter to the World Community after Harmonic Convergence.

    December 2012 is the end-date projected by Jose & Lloydine for the Mayan calendar. With manyastronomers and scientists now paying attention to the Mayan calendar, much debate has brewed over itsend-date; this deserves some explanation.

    Without diverting to the many internal flaws and confusions of the European Gregorian calendar, neitherof these issues are relevant to the Mayan calendar, seventeen solar years on the Mayan calendar isseventeen solar years, no matter what name is given the year in the Gregorian calendar.

    No matter what the number of the year on the Gregorian calendar may be, a day-by-day count referencesreal astronomical events in solar days, bypassing the problem of year names in the Gregorian system.The only true point for correlating the two calendars is an astronomical event, which was identified by theJuly 11, 1991 eclipse. It is a fact that major discrepancies in year counts exist in the Gregorian calendardue to its overlapping the Julian calendar. But this has nothing to do with the internal functions of the

    Mayan calendar.


    Sequences and cycles are readily described as spirals in the Dreamspelland sacred geometries. Thenumbers of the Pythagorean Lambdoma are 1, 1, 1, 1 an 1, 2, 3, 4. This is an obvious sequencing thatcan be understood in cycles. The Fibonacci spiral is fundamental to all life forms.

    The Fibonacci is a simple matrix that starts with 1 then adds 1 to get a sum of 2 the adds the previousnumber back into itself to get a sum of 3 (I +2=3) then repeats that sequence to get a new sum of 5(3+2=5). Primary numbers of the Fibonacci on the number 1 carried to 13 places are: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5 8, 13,

    21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233.

    Solar systems are designed by nature in Fibonacci spirals as are human hands, sunflowers, and shells.This sequencing is a fundamental design tool of Creation Spectacular patterns are found by applying theFibonacci spiral to key numbers of the Mayan calendar: 20, 13 and 18. The sacred calendar (Tzolkin)uses 20 and 13 The civil calendar (Haab) uses 20 and 18. The common denominator of both is 20.

    I applied the Fibonacci sequence to the number 20 and carried the sequence out to 26 places. Then Imultiplied each number of the sequence by 13 then divided it by 18 and discovered that the results ofthese factors shifted and started new internal sequencing at the 13th place in each sequence. The 12thplace completed a sequence and the 13th started a new sequence internally.

    The 12th glyph of the Dreamspell is 'Human' and the 13th glyph is "Skywalker". The sacred calendar is260 days and the civil calendar is 360 days with 5 unlucky days that are not counted. The Maya were wellaware that a solar system is 365 days but chose to memorialize the number 360. Their simultaneous useof two calendars with astrology arrayed sets of ratios and sequences yet accounted for each day of theyear in a way utterly foreign to the European calendar.

    The number 360 symbolizes space in a 360-degree circle or sphere. When a 360-day civil calendarsymbolizing space is arrayed with a 260-day sacred calendar symbolizing fourth dimensional time,time-space ratios (coordinates) are discovered. The civil and sacred calendars synchronize every 52years, so 52 is a central fractal of the calendars.

    The number 20 used in a Fibonacci matrix and factored with 13 and 18 produces internal sequences and

    cycles in the 12th and 13th places. With 12 solar months to 13 lunar months, the 12:13 relationship is partof nature's planetary design.


    There have been many projected dates for the ending of the Mayan calendar, ranging from 1957 to 2050.The 2012 end-date was defined by the Thompson Projection. Thompson's projection used a day-by-daycount to cross -reference the Mayan to the European calendar rather than a count of years. This bypassedthe problem of year names in the Gregorian system. Jose & Lloydine agreed with Thompson's 2012 date.

    More importantly, the 2012 date works with the hard facts evidenced by the accuracy of the July 26, 1992Time Shift. Terence McKenna and Peter Meyer 's Timewave Zero softwarethat graphs time as a fractaldemonstrates by graph the accuracy of the winter solstice of 2012 as the correct end-date of the Mayancalendar with graph anomalies appearing in the months of July.

    Beyond the stargates of this planet and solar system lies a cosmic scheme of underlying order in whichthe earth's flow of history unfolds in patterns of time. Galactic travelers have long traversed the corridorsof time and space, and periodically visited this solar system.

    The evidence of archaeological ruins on Mars and the moon are mute testimony to the presence ofintelligent builders in now ancient history. The evidence is clear. Someone with advanced knowledge ofastronomy has visited peoples of this planet and left calendars as a signature note. This is discovered incorrespondences of world calendars: Mayan, Tibetan, African, Vedic, and Hebraic. Similar calendarschemes are found in each of these cultures.

    The European calendar mandated by Pope Gregoryin 1583 is the only world calendar that did notintercalate at least two celestial cycles. The Hebraic calendar acquired by Enoch after he was translatedin a beam of light intercalated solar and lunar cycles in a fashion similar to the Maya.

    The Dogon in Africa were given four calendars by visitors from Sirius B:Solar, lunar, Venusian, and civil.The Tibetan calendar is so similar to the Mayan that traditional scholars now speculate that they share a

    common origin. The Vedic calendar is based on cosmic cycles, or Yugas. An ancient Hindu astrologyused 27 houses of 13 degrees 20 minutes, which are key numbers in the Mayan calendar.

    These calendars provided a time management tool that synchronized planetary cycles with visits from thestars. The Dogon calendar identified the 12 or 13th Century as the date of last visit; the Mayan calendaridentified July 11, 1991, as an upcoming date of visit. Both of these dates coincided with significantplanetary cycles.

    The cultures visited by the Galactic Maya were shamanic.

    Ancient Hebraic instructions for building altars and using precious and semipreciousstones are identical to those used by Native Americans.The ancient Tibetans were shamanic.

    The Galactic Maya were shamansof planetary sciences, Cosmic Shamanswho understood and utilizedthe cosmic flow of events. Their secrets were left with shaman in cultures who held the keys of theirsciences. Until now the shaman's craft has appeared as superstitionthat scattered before the power ofEuropean-based science. But that same science has now brought planet to her knees in destruction of thebiosphere.


    The Cosmic Shamanof galactic culture returned from the sky on July 11, 1991 to signal the time. Dialogswith extraterrestrials and those they came to awaken contain many keys that unlock the calendars andheal the planet. One of the keys came out of an extraterrestrial contact when the contactee asked how thecraft operated.

    He was told that the extraterrestrial craft operated on the principles of sequences per cycle. That's a prettygood definition of time and ties into the reports that many ETs are time travelers.

    The premise of the Mayan calendar was sequences and cycles in planetary and galactic events. The

    Mercedes Barrios Long fellow

    Who are the Elders?

    The Elders are the people who hold the knowledge and the prophecies. They can be children or adults.They can be born into any family. They were not allowed to comment on any of their prophecies until now.

    They know how to gather the knowledge in the pyramids which are on a vortex.

    Over 20 years ago, Gerardo Barrios began a quest to compare the ancient Maya calendars. He traveledto different villages in Guatemala, Mexico, Belize, Salvador and Honduras searching for the mosttraditional Maya elders of the different nations of the Maya people. These elders have retained knowledgeof the calendars since the beginning of their history.

    Some of these elders live in remote, isolated villages that required days of walking through the woods onfootpaths. Some are still living in caverns. Gerardo wanted to know if their calendars were all using thesame count. With minor variations for language and names, he discovered they were.

    As a part of this search, in 1984 he and 9 other Maya Elders traveled to the Cuchumatanes Sierra ofGuatemala to a village where the traditional Maya Elders have dedicated their lives to keeping the sacredNimajay(house of prayer) fire for over 1000 years. They maintain this fire 24 hours a day as a prayer ofpeace to the earth and its inhabitants. After five days' walk through deep forest, they reached this village.The Elders there had known through their own visions that this group was coming and greeted them. Ofthe ten men who had journeyed there, five were called into the Nimajay. Gerardo was one of these.

    Inside the Nimajay, the Chimbam (higher authority) Elder took Gerardo aside and talked to him. In thisand two later visits, he introduced Gerardo to the prophecy of the Feathered Serpent Kukulkan, asnake-like sacred earth energythat moves through the land. The Maya Elder who had begun to work withGerardo explained how this energy arises periodically and showed him on their calendar and on a mapthat Gerardo had brought with him when and where it had appeared.

    Later, when Gerardo tracked these times and places through history, he found events such as the great

    spiritual awakening of Tibet in the 50's, the anti-Vietnam War movement of the 60's, and people such asMartin Luther King. These events correlated with the ancient prophecies.

    The Chimbam Elder's revelationsand instructions would profoundly affect the course of Gerardo's life. Hebegan the work assigned to him.

    The story continues with a second thread.

    As an adult, Mercedes had moved to the United States from Guatemala. After living here for awhile, she

    heard the call of her ancestry to return to her native country and her roots there. She searched for theElders she had once known as a child and young person. After two years' work she met Gerardo. He toldher his story and the prophecy and they began to work together as friends and colleagues.

    Gerardo and Mercedes have devoted their lives to sharing the ancestral knowledge. Part of this is theteaching of the Maya Calendars, of which there are 20. Only 15 of them may be spoken of at this time.

    More about Mayan Calendars

    Mayans track 20 different cycles (calendars) of varying durations, which have to do with plants, humans,prophecies, numerics, solar system, galaxy, universe and the divine to name a few. There are a total of

    20 calendars. The 20 calendars can be used to understand our mission in this dimension.

    One of the calendars is the sacred CHOLQIJ - HUMAN - calendar. Gerardo and Mercedes share thecommitment to teach this Calendar now, during this critical time of change when Mother Earth iscleansing from the damage humanity has caused.

    How can this calendar be of help to us now? This calendar represents 13 forces and 20 energies. Eachday has a glyph (an energy) and a number (a force). The glyphs of the 20 days resonate with a particularanimal or bird as well. Studying the energy in association with its force in sequence guides us to a deeperunderstanding of the different vibration of each day.

    The human calendar has 260 day cycles. 13 X 20 = 260 days = 9 months = gestation period for a human

    being. No two days have the same force or energy. The calendar has a perfect count. It represents theenergies governing the human body. It has been in existence for mill ions of years. It is actually used inglyph form and has been since the beginning of time. The Elders say that the first wise humansvisualized cycles of life that repeat - some short and some extremely long.

    The calendar can be used to plan certain activities. Certain days empower a certain energy and otherdiminish the energy. Some days are good for resting and so on.

    We begin to enter into it. Holding awareness of it, we find which times are propitious to accomplish tasksat hand and which times we need to avoid traps and dangers. Holding consciousness of the energy of theday deepens our awareness of the Earth and brings us in contact with ourselves as beings insynchronicity with Earth's rhythms.

    We sense our place here and the place of other human beings, other animals and plants, the other livingkingdoms with whom we share our planet. We naturally, then, become more aware of ourselves ascaretakers of the Earth, in harmony with Her, compassionately envisioning not only what we need, but thebalance of needs of all beings in this and future times.

    According to Maya Cosmovision, as we become aware of the different vibrations of the Earth we willbecome connected with all Life. Through this connection, we have the potential to heal humanity andMother Earth. The CHOLQIJ calendar is one of the precious tools we now have to change how we aredreaming the world and the future.

    9/11/2001 (The terrorist attack on the World Trade Center) mapped to 6 IMOX which representschange in the physical world. US attacked Afghanistan on 6 KIEJ meaning to 'settle' or 'balance'.

    The Gregorian calendar is not in harmony with the forces of nature.

    The original Egyptian calendar was. But the Egyptian calendar was later modified by theGreeks/Spartan and then the Romans etc. 30 yrs after the birth of Christ, the calendar was off by12 days. They had a council to bring it back (Julian). In 1582 it was again out of line and Pope

    Gregory brought in the best astronomers to align it once again. It still suffer changes. The RussianOrthodox did not accept this calendar until much later.

    The Mayan calendar will need to be adjusted by one day in 380,000 years.

    The Aztecs use different glyphs and is basically the same as the Mayan only slightly less evolved.Their glyphs are better in their representations of the energies though.

    The Earth changes will continue until 2012. The Elders say that the process can be easy andaligned or can be catastrophic. Human energy wi ll decide this.

    Time and the calendar begin on the equinox of 3/21.

    There had been a cycle of darkness that lasted 468 years (9 X 52) and ended on 3/30/1993.

    We are now in a transition period called the 'Cycle of the merge of the dark and the light.' Duringthis time humanity is going through great transition.

    The cycle of light will come in full force on 12/21/2012.

    This is considered the cycle of 13 lights and 13 heavens.

    Many cycles begin on that same date.

    Mother Earth as a living entity will transcend to another level or frequency or consciousness and anew and special era will begin.

    The preparation for this is now in the womb of the Earth so to speak and the process of change isbringing transcendental manifestations.

    This new era will be very positive. "Let all beings rise. Let not one or two stay behind".

    The times are here for total brotherhood.

    The spirit beings, different philosophies, different races must begin to weave together allknowledge to create the tapestry of harmony and balance. We are all seeing the evidence of thisshift in human consciousness now.

    The spiritual energies/knowledge have been moving from Tibet over to the Americas (not just theUS, North and South America) since 1948.

    The Elders or many indigenous tribes have been monitoring and assisting it. There has beenhistorical evidence of its movement.

    For instance, it left Tibet in 1948 and in 1950 the Chinese invaded. It reached North America in thesixties and we experienced the Civil Rights movements - one pacifist (Dr King) and one morerevolutionary (Malcolm X and the Panthers). The 2 processes settled and harmonized into a civilprocess.

    The various revolutions in South America also directly coincided with the passage of the energiesthrough those areas.

    This movement of many energies has provoked earthquakes, civil wars, revolutions.

    It moved from Tibet through the mountain ranges of Asia, through Russia, over the Bearing Straitsthrough Alaska, Sierra Madres ... the Andes in South America.

    When it arrived in Panama, there was a backlash due to the Panama Canal (they cut through themountain to build the Canal) and this caused more violence in the area in the early 90's(Sandanistas, massacres in Guatemala, Mexico separatist movement).

    The elders ordered much spiritual work bringing together many indigenous tribes from manycountries to perform "planetary acupuncture".

    In 1997 the energy moved into the Amazon in Colombia.

    Its final destination is Lake Titicaca. After which, according to the prophecies, harmony and unitywill come greater to the hearts of humanity.

    The ceremonial works have brought togetherElders from the Innuits of Alaskaand Elders fromtribes in South and Central America.

    They now see all of the energies as one and the ceremonial works as being very similar. They had

    never worked together in this way before.

    There are physical as well as sacred technologies used in the ceremonies that are very powerful.The elders can see the results of this work.

    Kundalini and Quetzalcoatl

    Quetzalcoatl, the feathered or plumed serpent, represents kundaliniwhich is the movement of energyfrom the Earth to the base of the spine then up the spine. This serpent/fire represents transcendence.


    "The whole American continent is represented by an eagle or condor. It (America) has beencalled to take the torch for these times. One wing represents the physical and the other thematerial. The spiritual wing must continue to lift. When balance comes of both wings, thenAmerica will come unto it's own bringing the spiritual and material resources together."

    Dimensions and Beings

    There are 13 dimensions above us and 9 below. These dimensions also work with time. Time works atdifferent rates in different vibrations.

    If you spend one day in a higher dimension you would come back one year later. If we go lower, time ismore dense.

    Mayans visit other levels physically. There are physical portals in many places.

    Humanoidbeingsexist in higher dimensions. They are somewhat superior to us. The lecturer has only

    visited one level higher (in the physical). More evolved sun systems have more evolved beings. Our sunis in its first stage of evolution. Super beings do not interfere in either a positive or negative way. Theyallow us to follow our process. There is communication with people that are very evolved in thisdimension but they don't interfere.

    Ancient RecordsBased on prophecy, the Mayan priests knew the Christiansto burn all of their physicalrecords so the most superior Elders hid them. There still exist today, in certain groups with

    unbroken lineages. Sacred objects, guardians of energy, sacred music, guardians oftechnological objects etc. Nothing has been lost.

    Ancient TechnologiesThe Tibetans had advanced technologies. Humanity is still not evolved enough today to usesome of these technologies. The elders have known about - magnetic recording, jetpropulsion, radar, and television. The Mayans had radio communication in the Stone Age.
