Recently I was asked to speak at Parliament House in Australia about 2012 and what the Mayan Prophecies are really about. It has been a fascination of mine and in 2009 I took a group of people along with co leaders Dave Rogers, Hilary Carter and Keith Mason to Mexico in search of the Mayan Prophecies. In this blog I will give you ‘my’ opinions on the prophecies.
1. Polar Shift. This was the concept behind the movie 2012 starring John Cusak, and many people think this cannot happen. It’s based on techtonic plate shift, the study of Charles Hapgood in the last century. The scientific fact is there has been 14 polar shifts (where the north and south pole change polarity) in the last 4.5 million years. It’s based on a bunch of scientific triggers called the V-Dam and global warming is one of them. The fact is we are no where near the V-Dam unit number required to produce a shift and it’s unlikely that we are trending that way before any time soon.
2. The prophecies were found in the tomb of Pacal Votan a Mayan high priest who died around 632AD. They are based on the Mayan calender which is not linear like our Gregorian calender and based on the 25,920 year cycle of our solar system, which returns to the beginning of the cycle on 21/12/2012 at 11.11am. The fact is that the interpretations by people such as Jose Arguilles and others are simply that…interpretations. There is no doubt the prophecy is similar to other ancient documents, such as the pyramid texts, vedas and the bible, but already after 50 years of being uncovered we have conflict in the interpretation, after 2,000 years we have total confusion in the bible, so expect greater confusion as we move forward and more people like me give their insights.
3. The Mayan’s were histories time keepers and they tracked time through their systems of tuns, katuns and baktuns much more accurately than we have through our swiss made time. Essentially the prophecies are about the speeding up of time toward 2012. After all…where has this year gone already? And this is why in the last 100 years we have had flight, phones, the internet, and everything is speeding up. This blog didn’t event exist ten years ago.
4. Finally expect in the final days (all 260 of them which is the final part of the cycle from early 2012) that we will become more spiritual (have you seen the crowds at the mind body and spirit festivals), become healers, walk away from big corporations and become more environmentally conscious and community orientated…sound familiar…
Oh and by the way… see you in Jan 2013.
