These are tantalizing questions but the answers are not so far away. Wherever we turn with wide open eyes and hearts attuned to the workings of cosmic energies on Earth we see indicators that humanity is facing a period of great change as the impulse for evolutionary consciousness becomes apparent to more and more people.
It is as if the great pendulum of time has swung from the deep darkness of despair, materialism and greed into the light of hope, co-creation with the natural world and the essence of living together in harmonious communities. It is evident in the moves towards environmental awareness, appropriate technologies and in both planet care and people care. We pick up this positive swing into year 2013 and beyond as, sometimes small, sometimes large and dramatic, indicators that indeed, ‘times, they are a changing’.
In my book ‘Crystal Skulls and the Enigma of Time’ I explored this movement towards positive evolution on physical and spiritual levels;
‘If we look through evolutionary eyes we will see the unfoldment of a 600-million year progression of life on Earth, from the first multi-cellular fauna to modern humans. It is a journey of transformation where, according to biologists, the history of life tends to move in quick and quirky episodes rather than gradual evolution. It is pushing us forward to birth within ourselves and within our times a universal human capable of co-evolving with nature and co-creating with Great Spirit.
This new humanity I began to call Homo spiritus.’
The birth of Homo spiritus isn’t about a disincarnate entity – it is about you and I and the evolution of humanity. At this very moment of Now we can each choose to drop fears that divide us and act in unity of our Oneness, releasing unsustainable demands of the twenty-first century. So let’s ride the wave of collective goodness and surf to catch that elusive moment when the new creation cycle, heralded by the Maya, begins.
Many great minds have turned their attention to this uprising of human consciousness; philosopher Jean Gebser, mystic Sri Aurobindo, visionary Sir George Trevelyan, scientists Rupert Sheldrake, Ervin Laszlo, writers Ken Carey, José Argüelles, Drunvalo Melchizedek, Barbara Hand Clow among them and countless wise teachers from indigenous nations, notably the Maya, Inca and Hopi peoples.
Key to the evolution of which we all speak is an awakening; an elevation of consciousness, from material physical levels to an all-encompassing ‘superconsciousness’ simply expressed through linking our hearts and heads. This is where the call becomes personal and no longer an abstract concept. It emerges from releasing all that is immediate, tuning in to the core of your being, then rising through subtle energy fields into the connective depths of your heart-mind. Here each cell is linked to every filament of your auric rainbow body and in a moment of ‘no time’ is consumed by infinity.
The journey towards superconsciousness is through kind thoughts, gentle words and living your truth in the practice of meditation, whilst remaining in the moment of Now and your everyday world. This takes you into the ‘Anima Mundi’, meaning the ‘soul of the world’ spoken of by ancient philosophers and alchemists as the divine essence that energizes all creation. The mysteries of life, of nature, are written within it and it is a template for emerging evolution. In this process any irrational human fears or limiting patterns are released in the knowledge that every one of us is on this planet to learn life lessons that we contracted to discover before we were born. So the outcome of this spiritual evolution is already known at some level of our superconsciousness - it is just up to us to awaken.
December 21st 2012 has become a key date in our modern Gregorian calendar because it has been linked to prediction, much of which is not of Maya origin. Sadly it has been encumbered by the fear factor. Everything built up around the 2012 date is recent interpretation and traditional Calendar Daykeepers of the Maya in Central America simply see time as continuous cycles within cycles. Contrary to popular belief there have been no predictions from the Ancient Maya other than that we can expect changes in keeping with the ending of a 5120 year long cycle and beginning anew. Yet it is precisely because people are focussing their intentions upon the 21st of December that it can be used to swing the pendulum of time into a positive direction. Imagine the power of millions of people all focussed simultaneously upon a call for spiritual evolution, a call for Light and Worldwide Peace.
How can this happen? Below I give a simple meditation to practice leading up to the 21st and in the following days and years. Modern Maya Daykeepers have said that we entered a new cycle of creation in 2012 and our concept of time will gradually change. They are urging us to live authentic heart-felt lives that do not rely upon dubious interpretations of past events or future negativity but instead bring us into the moment that is Now where all is possible.
In your meditations imagine a bright Light of wisdom and unconditional love caressing and transmuting everything it touches. Let this Light spread in ever-increasing circles from your heart to your immediate environment and to all animals, trees, plants, birds and insects. Let it circle out across the land, reaching the sea, distant countries and then finally encompassing the whole planet in radiance. Envision all humanity re-connecting with this Light. See our Earth aligning with the Galactic Centre, re-structuring positive Earth energies that will take all life forms inhabiting her into a unified future. Like all the cells of your body that go to make up YOU, so you in turn become similar to a cell in the whole web of life. Treasure this unity as a jewel of Light in the starry nights of cosmic time yet to come, that has been, and is.
From my heart I wish you joy and peace in 2017. Alloa Patricia Mercier.
Quote by Dolores Cannon..... The most important thing is that we are living in the most important time in the history of the Universe, and it’s very important to be here now. There are thousands of souls who want to be here to experience this – even if they can just be here for a few hours. They say even if they’re born and die right away, they can say, “I was there when this occurred.” This is how important this is to the entire Universe. So, you’re living in a very wonderful time that will never be repeated again.”
The Maya wisdom teachers of Central America have long said that during 2012 we reach the culmination of a 5,125 year cycle of time that was written about in their sacred books and preserved as cryptic clues on carved stones. At the end of this period, written 126.96.36.199.0 in their Long Count Calendar and sometimes referred to as Year Zero we enter the Fifth Age or ‘Creation’ of the world. What this has come to mean to those who study indigenous teachings and prophecies is not that we are in for a Hollywood style apocalyptical ending. But in the lead up to the critical date December 21, 2012, we all have the opportunity to change our personal and planetary focus to best transition through the increased solar and cosmic energies reaching our planet. This work begins with transforming our own consciousness in a way that hitherto has not been possible.
All the information being made available through visionaries’ leads us to believe that a profound change in human consciousness is happening right now. It is occurring on a D.N.A. level in the cells of our body as we change the vibrational nature of our cells to absorb more light. This light is both the physical light of the Sun and a spiritual Light that never before has been so accessible to humanity. Actually it can be said that we are transmuting our bodies, purifying our souls and getting ready to incarnate as a totally different type of human. No longer are we the species homo sapiens sapiens who developed alongside Neanderthal Man. We are stepping into the bodies of the luminous Beings of Light we already truly are, as homo spiritus.
Although the years ahead will offer every one of us great challenges on a physical, social and environmental level the otherworlds of spiritual growth will not allow this evolution of humanity to fail. If at times you are despairing, draw a divine type of Light and physical visible light deeper into your body. There its essences will help you. It is in the inner realms that we achieve our greatest goals – our greatest transformation.
On mental levels we can assist the changes we are experiencing by moving away from the limiting thoughts of duality and into the third vector that leads us into inclusive solutions to any problems. There is always another way to speak about something or express oneself that does not harm others or polarize a situation in the outdated ways of the world of duality. (I have written a great deal about clearing our mental levels to assist our evolution into homo spiritus in my book ‘Crystal Skulls & the Enigma of Time’. http://www.patriciamercierauthor.webs.com) There is always a choice to make and always a positive way to act.
If your physical body is undergoing changes or illness find ways to clear toxic substances from it so that it can function at optimum levels. Many people are experiencing increased headaches and the pain of energetic and physical blockages in limbs and organs as powerful cosmic energies interact with Earth’s magnetics. Be aware that this too will change as you come into the destiny that was intended for you when you agreed to incarnate on this planet. At that time, way back in the memory of your soul, you volunteered to be here NOW, not because it would be a cool thing to do, or you were promised an easy ride, but because you had trained yourself for precisely this period of Earth time.
When things are difficult deliberately seek out the company of like-minded people for they are part of your soul family, work through problems and celebrate your human potential with them. These are not the years to be shy or reticent about our human spiritual destiny! It will be switched on and enhanced by sitting together in circles, praying and meditating together, constantly activating our highest qualities. You will find such people gathering together in sacred places, drawn together spontaneously as a ‘med-mob’ who is prepared to open to the pulse of Great Spirit that courses through such sites. Within these sacred places of which I speak, such as ancient temples, stone circles, mountain tops, pristine forest, sea or lakeside, there is always an increased flow of cosmic energies interacting with earth magnetic frequencies that can be felt, or occasionally seen, by sensitive people. They are sometimes referred to as ‘dragon energies’ or ‘ley lines’. When combined with human interaction these energies potentize the planetary chakras that maintain the subtle balance of Earth’s vibrational rate just as our human chakra system maintains a healthy equilibrium for our body. Together this is part of the Native American ‘Web of Life’ that connects all in harmony.
Whatever you are doing to change yourself, the act of ‘being in the Now’ is the single most important factor. No longer do we need to hang on to past karma or agonize about the future. Being in the Now is the most freeing action we can take – and of course it happens every moment, every day!
Actually, when we look at the bigger picture it is not just our planet that is changing, our whole solar system and galaxy is orbiting into an alignment with the galactic centre. This is the very event that was forecast by the Ancient Maya shaman-priests sitting atop their jungle temples studying the night sky over aeons of time. (In our times the researcher John Major Jenkins has much to inform us about this galactic centre alignment. www.alignment2012.com)
The Pleiades stars appear repeatedly in Maya Daykeeping and mythology. They are sometimes called the tail of the rattlesnake. According to Maya cosmovision the Earth is considered to be part of the Pleiadian star system. The symbolism of the conjunction of the Pleiades with the Sun is the movement across the sky and the ascension of the god-man serpent being, Quetzalcoatl, known as Ku-kuul-kaan to the Maya.
Although these stars will not be visible during daylight their energetic effects are still apparent. Hence the desirability to meditate upon their significance.
The conjunction of the Pleiades with the Sun on this May date, as a daylight zenith-passage, was encoded into the Great Pyramid of Ku-kuul-kaan at Chichen Itzá, Mexico. It was connected with the timing of the New Fire Ceremony and tracking the precession of the equinoxes. The importance of this Pleiadian alignment has been obscured by the famous serpent shaped light-shadow phenomenon that occurs on the balustrade of the pyramid’s steps and culminates in large stone carvings of serpent heads at the base.
The following quote is from Maya researcher John Major Jenkins, http://www.alignment2012.com
‘The date of the Pleiades's midnight zenith passage defines an event that always occurs exactly ½ year later: the conjunction of the Pleiades with the Sun. Let's state it again: The midnight zenith-passage of the Pleiades defines the day exactly six months later when the sun and the Pleiades are in conjunction. Why is this important? Well, it's difficult to know exactly when the sun and the Pleiades are in conjunction, because in fact the Pleiades are lost in the rays of the Sun for over six weeks-the conjunction is not directly visible. Also, both the November date (Pleiadian zenith passage at midnight) and the May date (Sun/Pleiades conjunction) move forward though the year with precession. By observing the shifting dates of the Pleiades's midnight zenith-passage in November, Central Mexican astronomers knew the exact date of the sun-Pleiades conjunction in May.’
