Mayan Prophecies

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

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”

Astrological Update ~ October 2011

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

This October we are in for a truly emotional, yet transformative month with three personal planets moving into Scorpio, plus having the New Moon there as well.

When Venus moves into Scorpio on Oct. 9, for the entire month, watch out for high passion, sex and romance.  Reactions to personal relationships may tend to be emotional and your desires intense.  Mercury joins her for the rest of the month on Oct. 14th, giving us profound insights to pressing issues, but watch how you phrase your words, as they may be too direct or sharp.

On Monday Oct. 24th the Sun moves into Scorpio and will be a good time to hone your creative use of will.  Plunge deeply into all that you do. Release and transform old patterns of behavior into new ones.

The Aries Full Moon is conjoined with Uranus and squared by Pluto on Oct. 12th, so expect the unexpected in your emotional nature, actions and the world around you.

The New Moon on Oct. 26th at 3 degrees Scorpio this month is a mixed bag with Jupiter opposing it at 5 degrees Taurus, and Sextiling Pluto at 5 degrees Capricorn. This configuration urges us to begin a new life cycle by not getting carried away when new opportunities come your way. Make sure you give yourself a reality check so you can deliver what you promise. With Pluto in the mix, you should be able to curb your desires for over eating and use your creative imagination and will to improve affairs in both your business and home life. It’s a good time to clean out a closet and find new uses for old possessions. The key words are renew, release and transform.

Ancient Wisdom Tid Bits

Saturday, September 3rd, 2011

Late summer and early fall are perfect times to harvest the remnants of your kitchen gardens, prepare the ground for winter and in the South, plant your fall garden.

It is the time of the Harvest Moon, (the closest full moon to the fall equinox), and this year it falls on September 12th.  In generations past farmers used this moon to continue bringing in their crops long after the light of the sun vanished because there isn’t a long interval of darkness between the sun’s setting and the moon’s rising.  This phenomena is possible because the Earth’s ecliptic plane around the sun, makes a narrow angle with respect to the horizon at this time.

When a farmer’s crops were bountiful, it was said to be a Cornucopia or a harvest of plenty.    Although here in the US we usually associate this word with Thanksgiving, it’s usage dates back to Greek mythology in the 5th century B.C.

The myth originates with the infant Zeus being fed by a goat and when Zeus grew up, he broke off one of the goat’s horns and declared that it would be always be filled with whatever it’s owner wanted.  Thus began the idea of Cornucopia. However the modern word derives from two Latin words.  “Cornu”, meaning horn and “copia” meaning plenty.

Last week when I sat down to read one of my favorite magazines, World Explorer, I thought wouldn’t it be nice if I shared it with my readers, because it covers lot’s of esoteric and ancient discoveries.  So for those of you who are interested in ancient and indigenous wisdom, this may be the magazine for you.  Publisher, David Hatcher Childress is a true explorer of many lost ancient cities, and odd phenomena and has written more than a few books on these subjects.To wet your appetite, this month’s issue features “The Great Pyramid Pump”, “Crystal Skulls”, “The Mystery of the Jade Gong” and “Agartha, 2012 and The New Era”.  I especially liked the last one.

Astrological Update: September 2011

Saturday, September 3rd, 2011

The month of September is packed full of surprises.  Below are some of the highlights.

You may find yourself wondering what your true purpose in life really is this month, as Jupiter turns retrograde on August 30th and remains there until November 2nd. This planetary action may also have a dramatic effect on your  dreams, so pay close attention to their meanings.  With Jupiter Retrograde you may also see opportunities knocking at your door from ground work you may have planted during the last nine months when Jupiter was direct.

Continue your deep innerwork on Monday, September 12th as the moon becomes Full in Pisces, or use your heightened sensitivities to create something new in the material world or the romance scene.  However, be careful not to dip too deeply into partying or you may regret it the next day.

Pluto turns direct on September 16th, helping us to release pent up feelings and issues that have been building since this planet went retrograde in April.  This would be a good time to use flower essences or emotional healing work to mitigate explosive behavior.

This month marks the official end of Summer and the beginning of Fall when the Sun goes into Libra on Friday September 23rd, and we celebrate the Fall Equinox.  Remember this is the time of year when we have equal time for day and night, and the veil between the worlds is very thin.  It’s a good time for ceremony or ritual, or simply turning inward for meditation and contemplation.

We end September with a bang with the New Moon in Libra on the 27th. Here there will be a conjunction of the Sun, Moon, and Mercury, plus a square to Pluto and opposition to Uranus. This configuration will force us to think and feel very differently about our lives and how to take appropriate action when needed. Try and stay harmonized and balanced when chaos knocks on your door.  To encourage real evolutionary shifts at this time, we  all need to boost our courage and confront our fear and emotional  insecurities.
