Maya 2012 Recommendations
"All moons, all years, all days, all winds, reach their completion. Measured is the time in which we can know the benevolence of the Sun. Measured is the time in which the stars look down upon us." (Popol Vuh of the Quiche Maya)
"On 184.108.40.206.19 11 Mol 7 Zac (May 21, 539 AD), this [ball court] was dedicated."(Chinkultic Disk/ball court marker)
"After the lying down sky was manifested, Hun-Nal-Ye, the First Father, entered the sky at the First-Three-Stone-Place. On 13 Ik, the last day of Mol, he made proper the Wakah Chan." (Palenque Temple of the Cross)
"Katun 4 Ahau . . . . The quetzal shall come, the green bird shall come. Ah Kantenal shall come. . . . Kukulcan shall come with them for the second time. It is the word of God."(Book of Chilam Balam of Chumayel)
"[At the time of] eclipse of the Sun, eclipse of the Moon. Ah Tzul Ahaw, the Venus Dog Lord, descends." (from the Dresden Codex)
As a Maya astronomer-priest our Lord Pakal Ahau has released the following astronomical timeline until 2012. In another article of the blog, we explained why Lord Pakal has chosen Chiron as his most important reincarnation star. Bear in mind, that although the astronomical events that are connected with Lord Pakal Ahau are real events, only He knows what will happen in connection with his Life, his Path, and the Mayan Prophecy 2012. He will not elaborate and he will only disclose further ideas if it is necessary for general benefit or explain it to the Pakalian Group of Mexico as we understand his decision. For now, we are delighted he has disclosed these galactic stepstones that undoubtedly will effect not only Pakal’s destiny but also the consciousness path of every living human on Earth until 2012 and beyond.
From 2008 to 2012 Starting around 2008, Chiron starts to make contact (conjunction) with Neptune. This is only the second conjunction with a ’spiritual’ outer planer since Chiron’s discovery and chosen by Lord Pakal Ahau to represent his Life on Earth as explained in the second website, The Search of Lord Pakal Ahau in the 21st Century. This is a time for reaping the Supreme Love that orders universes. It will be a time to examine the realities we have created and test whether or not they are centred on love, truth and compassion.
This process continues until around 2012 when gradually Chiron ´pulls away´. How amazing that, during the time of this conjunction, Chiron and Neptune span Pisces and Aquarius, a vital step into the Aquarian Age. A long period of time, a lot of processing, a lot of seeing through the Mayan illusions we have built around us ~ to find our golden hearts.
There are 4 total Solar Eclipses during the period that Chiron is conjunct Neptune, here are the dates. These sky events are very important for Lord Pakal Ahau because they mean important decisions that He will make to contribute toward the completion of the Mayan Prophecy of 2012.
Examine your life around these events and ask yourself what has changed in your life or destiny. They are universal events in universal time.
2008 1ST AUGUST MAX ECLIPSE 10.21 UT This eclipse goes around the circle of the North Pole starting in Northern Canada and ending in China close to Xian and the Chinese Pyramids. Chiron, Moon´s North Node and Neptune imprint into Hawaii. This is a very important eclipse.
2009 22ND JULY MAX ECLIPSE 2.35 UT Starts just before Delhi in India and goes across China and ending just short of the Society Islands in the Pacific Ocean. As with the last eclipse Chiron and Neptune are on the other side of the world to the total solar eclipse i.e. in darkness. The vortex of the eclipse is pulling them, along with the stellar energy of the first stars of Aquarius, up through the Earth ~ up through our subconscious.
2010 JANUARY 15TH MAX. ECLIPSE 7:06UT MADRAS In the midst of Chiron´s contact with Neptune, Jupiter joins in the fun adding its expansive energy making absolutely sure we do not forget what is going on. This is one eclipse that imprints the three of them into our world. This is the longest Annular Eclipse between the years of 2001 and 3000. Starts in West Africa and goes all the way to below Beijing in China.
2010 11TH JULY MAX ECLIPSE 19.33 UT This Total Solar Eclipse runs from just below the Society Islands across the Pacific Ocean to end at the Southern tip of South America in Argentina. Jupiter and Uranus are also conjunct for this eclipse and makes an interesting combination, don´t you think anything could happen! Again Chiron and Neptune are on the other side of the world to the eclipse.
2012 13TH NOVEMBER MAX ECLIPSE 22.12 UT This eclipse occurs over the Pacific Ocean, starting close to Darwin in Northern Australia and ends in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Chile. This eclipse underlines the importance the year 2012 for this is the first total solar eclipse for a long time where at the moment of the maximum eclipse the Sun/Moon and Moon´s North Node meridian are exactly over Hawaii. Chiron/Neptune are still in conjunction and imprint into the Americas, just at the place where day turns to night. One of the gifts of this eclipse is that Chiron/ Neptune are part of a water grand trine with Saturn and Ceres (Phaethon) holding the other two corners of the triangle.
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. The 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. It has never been so important.
The Prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor is told by many Native nations in the Western Hemisphere. The following is an elaboration from the Peace and Dignity Journeys Confederation of the Eagle and Condor Coordinating Council.
The Elders of this continent remember and talk about a prophecy that foretold how we will come together and reunite as one. We are like a body that was broken into pieces and this body will come back together to be whole again. They speak about this in the South, Center and North. Our Elders tell us that we will unite and get our strength back like many arrows that will not be broken. They remember the history to keep the fire alive. We have to come together to be one, to have complete understanding.
The main tool used was the arrow because our ancestors all over the continent were hunters. In time they added this arrow to a sacred bow. This bow is used all over this continent and is what we call the half moon. They knew we would be around and this bow would be again in the center, marking the direction that we should take. If we take a step we send this arrow to follow.
All of our people have to make a new design for our children and the future generations. They said it is written in the stars and we have to make this work so they can move the spiritual energy. This will begin a new time when we can take the Spirit in our own hands when the Eagle and Condor reunite.
Our leaders said that we should not forget to pass this message to our children. We will reunite our family and our people. Their Sun will be a new light. When this is done the people will fulfill their destiny. The pieces will be in place. There is a space for everybody and they will be apart of this proph ecy.
The majority of our leaders say don't forget to teach our children. All of the last leaders that were in command said to keep the family together. We will be standing in this new design. We will hold this in our home one day. Teach from Father to Son, from Mother to Daughter.
It is very simple to understand. The Encounter of the Condor of Urin and the Eagle of Hanan This Prophecy was related during the First Encuentro of Indigeneous Peoples in Quito, Ecuador in 1990. In the unfolding of the life of the Indian Nations, every five centuries produces transformations of both foundations and forms. With these changes, life does not lose its essence. It becomes covered with new skin. The old is rejuvenated. It is nourished with pure energy. This energy Is transmitted by the great spirits of Allpa Mama and Pacha Mama, that Is, of nature and of the Universe, in general.
Thousands of years ago, when life Initiated its vital cycle, Pachakamak (God of Time) created Intl (the sun) and Quilla (the moon) out of the union of it's tears and, thus, gave birth to the Runas, to the people, of this continent Appla-Yala and In this birth emerged the Condor and the Eagle, the Kuntur of Urin and the Anga de Hanan, their spirits continually enriching the veins of the Runas of this continent. Their strength motivated the north and south to unite.
The union of the people of the North with the South also signifies the union of the Condor and the Eagle. The Condor and the Eagle join their tears from Jahanpacha (the sky) to Ucupacha (the underground.) Out of this union sprang Central America. In this piece of earth was concentrated the wisdom of Hana and Urin.
New nations developed, whose inhabitants had the capacity to sow the earth In the middle of a great ocean and convert it into what is today Central America. These peoples, oriented by the laws of Allpa Mana and Pacha Mama, had to pass through difficult situations, one of which was the splitting of its nations into four parts. After this tragedy, the Willak Umus (prophets) instructed their Amautas, Curacas, Arawikus or wise men to create prophecies that would orient and guide our peoples.
These prophecies would teach the Indian nations to maintain themselves solid, united and, above all, to search for the most appropriate paths for their liberation.
The beginning of the liberation of the Indian people would be symbolized by different prophecies, one of which Is the union of the tears of the Condor of Urin and the Eagle of Hanan. The union of these tears would cauterize our wounds and fortify our spirit, body and thought. The great spirit would open furrows and in each furrow would water its seed, and In each step would spring battalions of men who would bare their chests to fend off the daggers of the enemy. They would reach out with their hands to erase oppression, exploitation and Injustice, and they would write on the huge page of the sky the sacred word of liberty.
The union of the Condor and Eagle, according to the prophecy, should occur in this time. The ensuing time period will be born with a new spirit. This new spirit will unite once again the red nations of North, Central and South parts of the hemisphere.
It is important to understand the interpretation of the prophecy in order to understand the purpose and scope of the Peace and Dignity Journeys mandate which the intercontinental run is a part. There are many steps that will and are being taken by our peoples in this time.
The Peace and Dignity runs are some of these steps. All steps are part of the Vision, Dreams and Prayer that we are making to carry out the instructions of our ancestors and to fulfill the prophecy by active participation in these steps.
This is the prayer of Peace and Dignity that the Eagle and Condor Confederation be reestablished again.
History of Peace and Dignity Journeys: Spirituality is Responsibility!
The Peace and Dignity Journeys is not the runs themselves. All the work involved has been thought out and many peoples had dialogues in this regard prior to the idea of the first run in 1992. Many uninformed people thought the run was the only activity of the Peace and Dignity Journeys. That is not so! The vision of our peoples has compelled us to provide a vehicle that will enable our peoples to reconnect to one another through the Sacred fire and strengthen our connection to our Father and Mother the Great Spirit, Mother Earth. Peace and Dignity Journeys is the vehicle we have provided.
The Journey never ends.
In 1989 a group of indigenous people in Chicago were concerned with the Prophecy of the Eagle and Condor time that was nearing. This time was marked and recorded on the Sacred Stone Calendar of the Mexica People.
(This calendar is incorrectly known as the "Aztec Calendar" named by the Anthropologists that dug it up in what it presently known as "Mexico".)
The calendar has time spans of 52 year cycles. The last cycle was nearing its end on October 12, 1992. The new cycle began on October 13,1992. Within this new cycle would be a time of rebirth of consciousness amongst the two-legged of the world and the Eagle and Condor Prophecy would be manifested in this time.
The formation of a confederation that would serve towards the spiritual reconnecting of our Sacred Fires in the whole of Turtle Island was the topic of many dialogues that entailed how such a task could be accomplished. It was decided that the time had come to move in this direction as it is our responsibility as the descendants of the Mexica peoples to do so.
We are not waiting for others to decide for us or for permission from any two-legged. We prayed for the blessing and help of our Grand Creator and our ancestors to guide us in this way. These dialogues were not new to the thinking of individuals in Chicago but were in fact a continuation of many dialogues in this regard by our peoples over many years when all nations of indigenous peoples were passing down the prophecies and legends to the next generations and at a time in this century when the ceremonies and Sacred Fires were being maintained or rekindled for the purpose of our spiritual health and development.
The call by many contemporary elders and spiritual leaders to return to the original ways was being heeded by many young peoples from the cities and reservations and all walks of life here in the North.
They began their Journeys to heal themselves and increase their understanding of the Sacred ways and ceremonies. We learned about the responsibility and risks many of the spiritual leaders took to protect this way of life that came under attack by the invasion and holocaust of our ancestors over 500 years ago. Not one indigenous nation today can claim that their Original way of life was not thwarted, repressed or banned in some way by the Nation States that were formed without their participation, consent or consultation.
Even today legislation by these governments does not recognize our Way of life let alone provide protection for it. In some cases as in the "United States" the Native American Religious Freedom Act was diluted so it has no teeth. So we move forward as we are accountable to Grandfather and Grandmother and the instructions of our ancestors.
The dialogues continued and a man named Alphonso Perez had the idea of making an intercontinental prayer that would coincide with the timing of the cyclical change. Spiritual Running would be the method by which this prayer could be accomplished. This intercontinental run would be one of many steps that would reveal themselves in this cycle towards the healing of our peoples and our Sacred Mother Earth. This is why the run began to be organized in the late 80s'.
The group of people in Chicago organized and incorporated the Name of Peace and Dignity Journeys. They also put their time and attention to taking on the task of being the main coordination body for the 1992 run. The president was Aurelio Diaz Tekpankalli who had worked prior to all this and to present time on the formation of the Confederation of the Eagle and Condor. The volume of work has taken years.
This was not just an activity limited to 1992. It was decided that Alphonso would go in the four directions of the Northern Hemisphere and Francisco Melo would go to the South to find relatives that were willing to put time and attention towards the prayer. Tekpankalli went to many nations and communities as well to pray and hold ceremonies with our relatives that had invited Peace and Dignity there. Each time the elders told him "we've been waiting for you". In each community that still held the memory of their peoples they told many stories of the Prophecy.
Each step we have made has verified our vision, dream and beliefs. There are many who have doubt. There have been many obstacles to our peoples because of doubt. We have no doubt in the Great Spirit and the steps we are making. There is no room for doubt in any of this work including the work it takes to make this run possible again. Erasing the doubt is part of the healing of 500 years of genocide and colonization.
We have several prophecies concerning the time we are living in, and it is in fulfillment of the Prophecies that we are here today. I will mention some of them:
“At the time of the 13 Baktun and 13 Ahau is the time of the return of our Ancestors and the return of the men of wisdom.” That time is now.
Another one says: “Arise, everyone, stand up! Not one, nor two groups be left behind the rest”. This prophecy is in reference to all: rich or poor, black or white, men or women, indigenous or non indigenous, we all are equal, we all have dignity, we all deserve respect, we all deserve happiness; we all are useful and necessary to the growth of the country and to make a nation where we can live with respect among the different cultures.
The Prophecy says: “Those of the Center, with their mystical bird Quetzal, make unite the Eagle of the North with the Condor of the South; we will meet because we are one, like the fingers of the hand.” This prophecy means that the Indigenous People of the North and the Indigenous People of the South, through those of the Center, will come together to strengthen the recovery of the ancestral science; recovery of our identity, art, spirituality and Cosmo-vision on life and death that the different Cultures have.
