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).
