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.
