The Great 2012 Shift

On November 2, 2011, in General, Yugas & Vedas, by James

By P Christian

Never before in history has a date been so significant to so many cultures, so many religions, scientists and spiritual seekers alike. Make no mistake about it, what is happening now has been planned & determined by the universe itself. The Mayan Prophecy about 2012 is our Fate & Destiny…We all have to pass through it.

The universally heralded and perceptual “shift of the ages” happens only once in thousands of years and is an unprecedented opportunity that is going to change both our inner and outer world – the micro and the macro – considerably. In this way we find ourselves “in between” world paradigms or eras as we pass from one cycle of time or way of living to another. This transitional crossroad, choice or change point has a way of “sorting” us or “grouping” us together leading to some kind of crescendo type of finish before the next cycle begins.

The Shift in energy brings out both our fears and people’s spiritual skills or true self and get them activated. That doesn’t mean that there’ll be instant “peace on earth” or that there’ll be no conflicts or problems… but it does mean that we have a much better chance of shaping the future according to our true “wants & desires” in a less selfish way that brings humanity and people together. On a personal level it is about finding new friends and allies that are aligned with our long term spiritual path or aspirations by questioning our old ways of life that have been directed solemnly towards “the pursuit of our ego’s pleasure”…

It’s this same kind of energy that causes “riots in the street” like we see in the Islamic part of the world because people are no longer willing to succumb to old means of control where they have nothing to say about it. On a global scale it boils down to who we want to be our “world leaders” who can take us to the next stage of our human and societal evolution in the new millennium. Let’s hope it’s all going to work out for the better without too many problems or conflicts, but somehow it is probably not going to go the way most people hope or think it will … because modern life has little room or place for the Big Spirit which is here now to teach us some important lessons, that is if we care to listen. If it appears to be “stepping us back” for a period of time … it is because we need to think again about the results of our human actions … that sometimes are misdirected in the sense that they are not for the highest good … where nobody really cares about others or are sure about what to do & how to be…

Is this really happening right now, new humans on a new planet earth? Are we being given the opportunity to become a world where love, wisdom and compassion are replacing hate, ignorance and judgement? Are we evolving to the next step of human consciousness? Stepping into unity consciousness from the present consciousness of duality. There is a lot of evidence given to us from indigenous cultures and also from present day “new age” channels that would support a positive answer to this question.

The Hopi Indians have called this time we are approaching as “the days of purification.” Many have prophesied this time as the “Great Shift of the Ages.” Some religions have their own description of a time where the messiah will return. That messiah is us right now. Revelations in the New Testament describes a time that many translate as an end to the human race. This can also be translated as a new beginning for mankind if read from this perspective. The Hindu Yugas have shown that we are entering the cycle of awakening from our sleep into the Satya Yuga or golden age.

The most famous of these prophesies comes from the Mayans of Central America. The end of the Mayan long count calendar comes on December 21st 2012. This is the end of the grand cycle that has lasted over 5000 years. If we have the belief that life is eternal then this date may be looked at as an end but also a new beginnings. The circle begins again. If you listen to the Mayan Elders of present day they have told us that this is a time for a new human to emerge. A human that has the attributes of knowing that we are one with all things. That we can live in peace and harmony with each other knowing that we are all perfect. The time of realizing these truths is right now and according to the Mayans a mere four years from now.

There have been many masters throughout history that have left us clues to help us remember who we truly are. The most famous being Jesus and Buddha and Muhammad. All have told us to look within to remember that we are masters too. They anchored into human consciousness the potential for the changes in humanity that I have been discussing throughout this series.

Saint Francis of Assisi, the Sufi poet Rumi, Leonardo Da Vinci, William Blake, and many more, have all contributed to helping us through their works to see the truth of our being. More recently Albert Einstein, Edgar Cayce, Mahatma Gandhi the Dalia Lama all have messages of empowerment if we choose to interpret them from that perspective.

Present day “new age” channels like Lee Carroll who channels Kryon has been giving us the information about now being the time for humans to wake up to a new way of being. Kryon since 1989 has been giving us the nudges to help us remember. Steve Rother, the channel for the Group, in his book “Remember” lays out the groundwork for us to know how the new human will be. Geoffrey Hoppe who channels Tobias has offered invaluable guidance for those who know that this lifetime is the most important lifetime in human history.

Since the Harmonic Convergence in 1987 when we chose to take the next step into the path of enlightenment many things have changed in our world. The Berlin wall came down. The Soviet Union harmonized with the west. The global communication structures like the Internet have brought us closer to each other, giving us the ability to see that we are all the same. The integration of cultures that we are experiencing now is unmatched in human history. Quantum physics has revealed unseen dimensions and truths about the control we have over our reality. Science in general is uncovering clues to the concept of the unity of all things. With the invention of the computer the human knowledge base has expanded with unparalleled speed in the last 25 years. It is all contributing to the end result of awakening humanity.

The Earth herself is undergoing these vibrational shifts as well, evidenced by changing weather patterns, global warming and geological episodes that have no precedent in recorded history. Just as matter changes state with changes in temperature and pressure, the earth, and by extension, our bodies, are affected by the magnetic field and frequency or vibration of our planet. The magnetic field around the earth is weakening along with the increasing vibration of the earth. Both these factors are allowing for us to change our state or perspective on our reality. This is an involved topic which I will leave for another time. Suffice it to say that the signs of unprecedented change are all around us if we choose to interpret them as signs of the great shift happening right now.

Have you felt an urge to change – maybe you’ve started noticing changes occurring around you?

Every 2000 years one cosmic age ends and another begins. The Piscean Age – the Christian era – is now coming to a close, and the Age of Aquarius is currently on the ascendancy. Some have suggested that Jesus Himself foretold the New Age, with this instruction (Luke 22:10 and Mark 14:13) – “A man will meet you, carrying an earthen pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he goes in.” (Aquarius is symbolised by the water-carrier… or, some might say, water-gatherer). Jesus, we understand, is the Alpha and the Omega – the Beginning and the End. His return is expected by many to be during the early stages of the New Age. The Antichrist is also expected to begin marshalling his forces at that time.

The Age of Aquarius has been interpreted as a time when the human microcosm will join in harmony with the divine macrocosm: it has also been seen as a pouring out of the Water of Life – the Holy Spirit (or in Eastern terms, Kundalini) – on humanity. The creation of a noosphere – a sphere of the spirit – has been predicted. The Book of Prophecies of the 11th century Knight John of Jerusalem says that “The millennium that comes after this millennium will change into a light time. People will love and share and dream, and dreams will come true… people will be one big body, of which every person is a tiny part. Together they’ll be the heart, and they’ll speak one language… men will have reached heaven… men will know the spirit of all things… people will receive a second birth and the spirit will come into them.” This, surely, is the beginning of the 1000 years of happiness and perfection spoken of in the 20th chapter of the Book of Revelation.

Buddhists, too, see this as a time of rebirth for humanity – a new beginning. And in Islamic tradition, there is a Qiyamah time – a time of judgment and resurrection – which seems to coincide with the Age of Aquarius. Hindu scriptures speak of an age of truth (Satya Yuga) when the falsehood of the previous age (Kali Yuga – age of darkness and ignorance) will be revealed and will fall away.

A Golden Age is beginning, when religious differences will disappear, and minds will be freed of ignorance and delusion. There will be a spiritual awakening, allowing each individual to begin an inner spiritual journey, seeking after Truth and the eternal Spirit. It will be recognised that individual worth comes from within. People will begin to rely less on money, possessions, fame, power and other people for the answers they seek. The emphasis will be on kindness and understanding, humanity, spirituality, truth and enlightenment. The human race will become visionary and super-conscious. Leo, the polar opposite of Aquarius, will lend its complementary characteristics, encouraging, inspiring and enlightening… facilitating inner growth and universal harmony, peace and love. The sacredness of Life will be recognised. False doctrines will crumble, but many subjects previously regarded with suspicion – UFOs, vegetarianism, alternative medicine, astrology, etc – will become commonplace. Spontaneous spiritual awakening, near-death experiences and extraterrestrial contacts are expected to become commonplace. Shifts in human consciousness will be accompanied by a reawakening of the feminine – both in secular and spiritual contexts. Ancient spiritual and indigenous knowledge, formerly secret, will become increasingly available to the public. And the Internet will facilitate human interconnections on a scale never before seen. Networks and alliances are already beginning to form – in many cases, secretly or underground – to assist with this great Shift of the Ages.

Many of you will be aware of the date 2012, and have some understanding that many people believe it will be a momentous time for our planet. But what is really happening?

We are at an extraordinary point in time – a time which has been foretold by many cultures. It is the ending of one great cycle of 26,000 years and we are just about to start the next, and extraordinary things are happening.

For example, astronomers have discovered that our solar system historically belonged to a small galaxy called the Sagittarius Dwarf galaxy. For millions of years this has been colliding with the Milky Way galaxy, a much larger, more powerful galaxy, which has literally been ‘eating up’ or absorbing this smaller galaxy. We are now just at the moment when our old galaxy is about to fully collapse and be fully absorbed. I believe behind everything physical, there is mind or consciousness, so we are on the point of becoming fully a part of a greater, richer, more vibrant galaxy with all its consciousness and power.

Just think of the implications of this – for all of humankind’s evolution we have been experiencing destructive energy as our home galaxy has been eaten up by the larger Milky Way galaxy. What effect has this had on our psyches? Our sense of belonging? And we are just about to become part of something infinitely richer and more powerful!

At the same time, our solar system, which has been above the meridian of the Milky Way galaxy, is in the process of moving through this meridian, to go beneath it. Both astronomers and elders of various cultures are telling us that we are moving out from a dark part of the galaxy to a lighter part. Gravity is greatest here and scientists are saying that this equatorial area is actually full of energy! Gravity moves in waves out from the centre through the universe and is a controlling factor in its physical structure, and they can see that it functions intelligently. Great globules of energy are being sent out and our solar system is currently being penetrated by these globules of energy, as is our planet.

Many ancient cultures spoke of this time in their legends and prophesies – even the Bible had something to say about this time – Jesus in Matthew 24; St John in Revelations talks about a new heaven on earth; St Paul talks about the last days before the New World ‘In the last days difficult times will come, men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy……always learning, but never able to come to the knowledge of truth’. The prophet Daniel says ‘knowledge shall be increased and men shall run to and fro.’ All this we can see around us today.

The Hindus for thousands of years talked about the Kali Yuga or Dark Age, a time of great materialism and decline in spiritual life from which is born another Golden Age, and believe it is just ending and we stand at the threshold of a new Golden Age. A widespread physical destruction was foretold for the decades we are living through – in effect, a clearing out of the base, the unworthy, that which no longer serves. It is seen as a time of great danger and only those who follow their inner heart and live in harmony with the universe will survive.

The Significance of 2012

On July 14, 2011, in Mayan Calendar, Prophecies, by James

By John Van Auken

We’re going to take a few minutes to look at the Mayan prophecy of December 21, 2012, as the end . . . of an age? Of the world? Of a calendar? We’re going to find out.

There are two ways to approach this. One is to use the Mayan Long Count Calendar. But the other, which is very interesting, is to use the Aztec Sun Disk, which has the five ages on it. That’s the one we’re going to take a look at.

I took a picture of this Aztec Sun Disk (see Youtube videos below) at the archeological museum in Mexico City, and I have it here. The disk is of course much larger than it appears in the picture. It weighs about 25 tons and is about 12 feet in diameter, so a normal man would only come up to about half the distance of this circle; it’s about 3 feet deep. We’re actually going to look at this center circle, but first, I want you to notice at the top these two massive serpents coming down out of the heavens into the Earth. Symbolizing the god of fire and the god of the Sun, respectively, they come down as serpents, but their heads are now depicted as human heads. This connects with the ancient idea of the descent of the serpent from the tree of knowledge down into the Earth. Or the ancient Hindu idea that the kundalini, or the life force of humanity, descended out of energy into matter.

It is also the symbol of the descent of this power and our descent as souls, or children of God, coming out of pure spirit, of pure energy, into matter for the first time. When we look at the inner circle, we see those early ages.

Here is a closeup of the center circle. As you can see, it has a circle in the middle with the sun god’s face, above it is a pyramid, and then there are four squares around the side. Each one of these squares represents one of the ancient ages. The circle in the middle is the age we are currently living in, called the Age of Movement, or Change. It actually began August 11, 3114 B.C., and it ends December 21, 2012. So the big question is, what happens after it ends? – there are only five ages shown here.

Well, actually, there are seven ages depicted, and the next two ages are very important to us. Remember the descent of the serpent energy, the kundalini life force, out of the heavens? Out of energy into matter? Out of formlessness into form? Out of spirit into flesh? This is a reverse of that process. Let’s take a look at these ages.

Some people begin their interpretation of the ancient ages with the first square to the left of the pyramid, and they go around the circle counterclockwise. Others begin with the image in the square on the right of the pyramid, then go to the one on the left, and then come around. I prefer to begin with the one on the right of the pyramid and go in reverse order. You’ll see that these ages fit very well with the mythology of not only the Mayans but the Egyptians and other ancient cultures.
