Opening of the Portals - Pleiades Over the Pyramid

May 20, New Moon and Eclipse is the day when the Sun will be directly over El Castillo in Chichen Itza casting no shadow at noon.

On this day of power, the Pleiades known to the Maya as The Rattlesnake's Rattle, will be directly overhead, completing the body of the Snake whose head is at the botton of the pyramid.

The glyph for 'to enter' is represented by the rattle of the rattlesnake, thus on that day when the rattle, ie Pleiades, are over the pyramid, we can enter into another dimension via the portals opened by the eclipse.

The Pleiades have been significant to many cultures through time. Many Native American cultures have myths relating the stories of their ancestors, called Starseeds, who originally came from the Pleiades.

Ancient cultures aligned monuments and temples with the Pleiades, including structures such as the Great Pyramid at Giza, the Parthenon and the site of Teotihuacan in Mexico.

In India the Pleiades are called the "Seven Mothers."

For the ancient Maya, the night sky represented the Underworld made visible at night because everything turned upside down. During the day, it was underground and we had access to it through portals such as mirrors, cenotes and pools of water. Thus in the day, the Underworld was a watery world.

The hieroglyph for 'conjure' - is a hand holding a fish which was seen as reaching into the watery world and bringing something into the daylight world - manifesting.

The Sabian symbol for the New Moon, Solar Eclipse is:  "A glass-bottomed boat reveals undersea wonders; the revelation of unconscious energies and submerged psychic structures" repeating this theme of the possibility for traveling through or at least viewing other dimensions where we can find answers to the issues we are now facing.

Ancient Mayan shamans called hmen 'doers' could access portals at any time. In fact, they could create them. During particularly powerful times like this upcoming New Moon Eclipse conjunct the Pleiades, anyone with intention, respect, humility, love and longing can have access to these other dimensions.

You don't have to be in Chichen Itza. You don't have to be on top of a mountain, next to the sea or anywhere in particular. Just be where you are. Be fully present to the moment. By paying attention, you will see the cracks in the world.

During this time we can visualize reaching into the watery world through the portal of the eclipse, for blessing,inspiration and renewal and rebirth.

Wayeb - Maya Sacred Days March 28-April 1, 2012

The sacred period known as Wayeb is coming up March 28 to April 1 in the ancient Mayan calendar known as the Haab. The Haab is composed of 18 'months' of 20 days each, numbered from 0-19 plus 1 short period of 5 days, known as Wayeb. It takes place at the end of year. People took this time to prepare for New Year's Day on 0 Pop.

At the time of the Conquest, this period of five days was seen as a 'dangerous time when evil spirits roamed the world,' because they noticed that the people stayed in their homes and did not travel. The Spanish occupiers failed to realize this was a time of spiritual retreat and that people stayed home because they were fasting and praying in their own ancient way.

As we approach the end date of this Great Cycle - the completion of 13 Baktun on December 21, 2012, each one of us is encouraged to raise our vibrational level. During the period of Wayeb when we have access to other dimensions and when our ancestors and spirit guides are more able to communicate with us, we can make a great deal of progress on our spiritual path. For these 5 days the portals will be open. It is a time for travel from one dimension to another. Time to set your intention for the New Year, which will take place on April 2 known as 0 Pop.

It would be ideal if you can be on retreat for the entire time, but life being as complex as it is...take any time you can during this 5 days to meditate, pray, spend time in nature or whatever you do as spiritual practice.

There is a lot of energy available during this time and I suggest you connect to it.

Dawn of a New Day - a New Age

I will be offering my 6 week hieroglyph class again at Santa Rosa Junior College starting Thursday March 1. Click here to go to their website to register.

Do not be fooled by the fact that this course is offered through Community Education. It is a full on academic level course with homework - although you will not be graded or receive academic credit. When I taught it at Sonoma State University many years ago, you could receive credit. The only complaint I've had so far was that it was 'a language course and that it was difficult'. is a course in Mayan Hieroglyphs and I guarantee you, if you show up, listen and do the work, you will learn a lot!
Here we are - the year we have all been waiting for... or dreading as the case may be. Show time!

Based on my 40 years studying the Maya, the Egyptians and many other cultures, and my lifetime studying religion, mysticism, esoteric traditions, languages etc., this is what I believe is happening/will happen. We are going to experience some 'visitations' from 'extra-terrestrials that will not be deniable by our governments. They may land on the Capitol Mall or at the Vatican, for example.

They will be seen by hundreds, maybe even thousands. It will become irrefutable that we have been contacted in the past, and that in fact, our cultures have been seeded and highly influenced through time by them. That we, in fact, contain 'extra-terrestrial' DNA, referred to up to this point as 'junk DNA' (how could we have 'junk DNA' in the first place? Duh), so that we are related to them biologically.

They will again assist us as they have in the past, to make our next step in consciousness. Up until now, there have been people who have been in contact with 'them', but usually these people have been deemed part of a fringe, if not totally nuts to most people. During this year, the contacts will increase, culminating in a major event when the Nine Lords of the Night, the Bolon ti Ku, also known as the Egyptian Ennaead, will be made manifest. This has been translated as "a seeing, the display of the god(s) in a great investiture".

The veil will dissolve between our worlds and we will see them. Mayan texts which speak about what happened on the last Creation Day, corresponding to our date August 11, 3114 BC say that it was preceded by the arrival of a female and a male deity.

The one text on Tortuguero Monument 6, that speaks about the upcoming 'Creation Day' ie cycle ending refers to the Nine Gods (some say God 9, but I believe this is a mis-translation, since The Nine Lords of the Night are called by that same name).

Solstice 2011 - One Year to Go

Here we go...if you thought there was a lot of actions (hype) surrounding 2012 before, you will be mowed down by it now. EVERYONE is getting on the bandwagon.

The most recent buzz is about the so-called 'second reference' to the 2012 end date found on the Comalcalco brick.

The complete Long Count date for the last day is 4 Ahau 3 Kankin.

The last part, 4 Ahau 3 Kankin, is called the Calendar Round (CR). It consists of a tzolkin date (Ahau) from the 260 day calendar and a haab date (Kankin) from the 360+5 day calender. These two cycles run continuously and repeat a particular combination every 52 years.

This was one of the repeating cycles connected to the Mayan prophetic tradition. It was thought that events would recur each time a particular combination came up. Another cycle for prophecy was the katun cycle used in the Chilam Balam.

This second reference consists of a CR and some difficult to interpret glyphs which might mean 'he/she/it arrives'. In the prophetic tradition, each time period has an 'event' ie verb associated with it which is performed by god(s) or natural phenomena. By analogy, we can say something like: "on Dec 21st, the Sun stops in the sky" (the solstice). If someone read that a thousand years from now, they might think that the Sun actually stops in the! what would that mean? they might speculate...the end of the world?

With no other calendar glyphs besides a Calendar Round date on the brick there is no way to know which 52 year cycle it refers to. And even if the 'event glyph' (verb) is the same as that on Tortuguero Monument 6, it still means nothing as it would be expected. Just like if we see July 4th something written in the U.S., we assume the text has something to do with Independence Day.

I have read a number of posts about this...which, by the way, are only 'cuts and pastes' of each other. That is, the same article copied over and over, by people who know nothing about the Mayan calendar, ancient Mayan tradition or much else for that matter.

If you want to learn how this all works, I will be teaching my hieroglyph class again at Santa Rosa Junior College starting March 1. This is a 6 week class, where you will learn the basics of decipherment, the calendar, the mathematical system and much more. You will be able to read Mayan texts that refer to the last Creation Day.

In case you might think I am nothing but the is something that is fun. Your Mayan/Aztec horoscope. No such thing really, but fun to look at. Click here. WARNING you will get on their email list and will receive copious quantities of stuff you might not want.

A good website to figure out Mayan dates using different correlations etc. is this one. Click here. This is a legitimate resource and you won't receive anything from them.

We are fast approaching the year we have been looking forward to or dreading depending on your perspective. We can't say nothing is changing, because, for most of us, change has become constant.

Astrology can provide a way to navigate these times. Go to my astrology blog to schedule a reading.

Some say it will be the end of the world....well, that is happening already. You can easily say that life as we knew it is over. As to what will happen on December 21? If you are not living in present time, you will miss it...just as you miss what is happening RIGHT NOW!

It is time to see how you create your own reality and thus your own future.

Time is speeding up...we don't have to wait years or lifetimes to feel the effects of Karma. Many people report 'instant Karma'. This proves the idea that we create our own reality. Instant Karma shows us that. We are seeing the Truth of the ancient traditions revealing itself.

It is important to move towards increased integrity, taking responsibility for our words and actions. The Shift we are going through will makes us better co-creators, so we need to make sure we are creating the best possible world. Paying attention to our dreams, feelings and relationships will show us what works and what
does not work. Developing resilience and being willing to let go, will help us deal with inevitable losses.

Meditation and other techniques which improve your ability to focus attention can help you still fearful thoughts, which only distract you and keep you from being able to act in present time.

As we move into this time, I am beginning to have more and more experiences of bleed-through from other dimensions. I am finding the mystery school information from ancient Egypt is serving as a guidebook for this Shift. The ancients provided us with operating manuals geared for this time.

I think with the fall of Mubarak (and the subsequent deposition of Zahi Hawass the former Egyptian Antiquities Minister) information that has been withheld from the public will be revealed and it will be quite significant.

Up until recently, I have avoided making connections between the Maya and the ancient Egyptians, but recent events, coincidences and synchronicities are showing me more and more connections.

I now believe that they both come from a 'mother culture' because of the extent of similarities in their cosmologies and hieroglyphic writing system.

The Nine Lords of the Night, the Bolon ti ku referred to in the Tortuguero Monument 6 are the Nine great Osirian gods and goddesses of Egypt - the Ennead. They were part of the original creation and
they will return for the next re-setting.

Osiris, the Egyptian god of vegetation is the Mayan Corn God, Yum Kaax, both represented by the seed - the end and the beginning. In the picture on the left, Osiris is in the center, notice the 'vegetation' on his head. The Mayan Corn God, Yum Kaax on the right, has corn tassels on his head.

In the ancient myths both undergo death and rebirth, siring their son(s) through the intervention/assistance of wood/trees and birds.

Memory plays an important part in the creation/death/rebirth stories, because it is through re-membering that the god is restored. Memory is one of the most important functions of the mind. During the process of the Shift, we will have access to ancient memory - the akashic records with which to re-member, re-create the world when it appears to be disappearing. It will seem to fade out and it will be our job to keep the vision of the beautiful blue planet alive as we go through the event horizon. Our collective memory will re-establish the world on another dimension.

Mayans and Egyptians...any connection?

What does the end of the Mayan calendar have in common with Egyptian cosmology?

You may not know that in addition to studying the Maya since 1970, I have also been studying the ancient Egyptian language and culture. I was drawn to Egypt after watching a movie at the drive-in theater with my parents called "Land of the Pharaohs". I was around 5 years old. So...I have actually been studying Egypt since then...around 58 years!

Now that I have come the this level of research, I know enough about both cultures to be able to point to real correspondences. I will write about this shortly, for now, I want to announce a program coming up at the end of the month that is well worth participating in.

Unlocking the Pyramid Code: Ancient Egypt as a Model for Empowerment, with Dr. Carmen Boulter. She will be interviewing 6 experts on ancient Egypt including John Anthony West and Robert Bauval. This is a live stream coming from Europe on 6 Sundays and is available at different times in your local area. On the West Coast of the U.S., it will be at 11am.

You can sign up to receive this live stream on your computer and participate in the discussions, since you will be able to ask questions and interact with the participants.

To find out more click here or click the Prophets Conference banner above.

My research is showing the many ways that these cultures were connected, possibly coming from an older parent culture (Atlantis?) or even extra-terrestrial.

I do feel that this material is coming forth at this time to help us with the Shift we are going through. Ancient Egyptian rites assisted people in transformation from one state to another. These rites were both for the living and the dead. I, myself, facilitated these rites in a past life serving at the Temple of Denderah.
I will be hosting this program in my area in Northern California.  If you are interested click here for more information.

October 28th - NOT

I find it amazing that someone like Calleman is considered "a Mayan scholar", when, clearly the guy has come out of left field with ideas that are not at all supported by the over 100 years of actual scholarship in the area of Maya studies. It proves that if you continue to repeat stuff, eventually people will come to believe they are true. Repetition does NOT make something true friends.
Generally, people don't bother to find out the truth for themselves. They rely on others partly due to time and energy constraints. Things are just too complex and there is only so much time in a day. The problem with this, is that unless they do some research themselves, they will not be able to determine the credibility of so-called experts. They will continue to pass on erroneous information.

The fact that Calleman has been able to impose his ideas on the general public continues to turn my stomach. So many have taken his fantasy for the truth. His material is not based on anything real in Mayan culture past or present.

According to Calleman, the end of the calender will occur this month. BS!!!!

Who is this guy?

Recently I read yet another 2012 book. 2012 and the End of the World: The Western Roots of the Maya Apocalypse, by Matthew Restall and Amara Solari. Both academics, they show how the apocalyptic views of the first Catholic missionaries who went to Mexico during the Conquest period influenced the Maya and thus showed up in documents written during that period. The so-called predictions in the Chilam Balam which reflect the Book of Revelations are there because the scribes who wrote them had already taken on beliefs from the Judeo-Christian Bible. The book is short and easy to read. I recommend it.
