With the Mayan Calendar and year 2012 being at the forefront of everyone’s mind these days, it’s easy to get carried away with all the negative hoopla running around on the Internet. I always find that the most accurate information is usually rooted in it’s original source. So today I bring you words from Carlos Barrios, a Mayan elder, ceremonial priest, and spiritual guide who along with his brother, has interviewed almost 600 traditional Mayan elders in reference to their understanding of the Mayan Calendar and it’s end date.
According to his research Carlos found that all of the confusion about the end date is because anthropologists and others are not interpreting the calendar correctly and are simply making things up. He says that the world will not end in 2012, it will simply be transformed.
“Humanity will continue, but in a different way. Material structures will change. From this we will have the opportunity to be more human. We are living in the most important era of the Mayan calendars and prophecies. All the prophecies of the world, all the traditions are converging now. There is no time for games. The spiritual ideal of this era is action.”
It will be a rebirth of the world and beginning of the 5th Sun when our Sun crosses and aligns itself and Earth with the Galactic Center of the Milky Way on December 21, 2012. Carlos says that this phenomenon will open up a channel for higher frequencies to come to Earth.
He reminds us that this shift in vibration has already begun causing change to consistently accelerate. Now is the time for people to come together in love, light and life to create balance in unity. We need to find similarities with our neighbors and enemies, instead of squabbling over differences.
Carlos says that the 5th Sun will be ruled by the Element Ether that rules spiritual energy and is thought to be brought to Earth by the unusual Solar and Galaxy alignment in 2012. However, he also states that the prevailing global forces today are working to block this transformation through creating fear among the people, environmental havoc, and war. In this way, they are hoping we will not be ready when the shift occurs. Carlos says that:
“It’s very important to be clear about who you are, and also about your relation to the Earth... it’s a time is to learn to sense or see the energy of everyone and everything – people, plants, animals.
This becomes increasingly important as we draw close to the World of the Fifth Sun, for it is associated with the element ‘ether’ – the realm where energy lives and weaves. Go to the sacred places of the Earth to pray for peace, and have respect for the Earth which gives us our food, clothing, and shelter. We need to reactivate the energy of these sacred places. That is our work.
One simple but effective prayer technique is to light white or baby-blue colored candles. Think of a moment in peace. Speak your intention to the flame and send the light of it on to the leaders we have in power to make peace.
“The greatest wisdom is in simplicity. Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It’s not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It’s encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find your heart, and you will find your way”
