The Mayan predictions are far from 2012 doomsday prophecies. According to the Maya we will be leaving a time of darkness to enter an era of light around 2012. Some Mayan experts considered what the Maya wrote, "pure fantasy."
What's interesting is the Mayan predictions ARE unfolding now, and are accelerating the closer we get to December 21, 2012. But, the ancient Maya never predicted the world was coming to a dismal end or a 2012 doomsday!
You're worried. Concern about the future is what brought you to this site. I understand how you feel. When I first started to research the Maya sixteen years ago, I felt the same way. I worried too about 2012 doomsday prophecies such as pole shifts , earthquakes, asteroid collisions and more. But, now I'm at peace with what's happening in the world.
There is a bigger brighter picture beyond the chaos and tragedies. I see now we have far more control over our future than we may think. Years of research and introspection have changed my fears to understanding. I now see that 2012 doomsday and other negative things are caused by our own negative thinking and actions.
Worry and fear never changes anything for the better. In fact fear is attracted to itself.
The purpose of this article and its links is to help you understand what's happening in the world...see why there's so much chaos...and, know how you can find peace in the turmoil.
"Despite the publicity generated by the 2012 date, Susan Milbrath, curator of Latin American Art and Archaeology at the Florida Museum of Natural History, stated that "We (the archaeological community) have no record or knowledge that (the Maya) would think the world would come to an end in 2012." Susan Milbrath, quoted in USA Today 3/28/07
If you came to this site to get a blow-by-blow description of the different 2012 doomsday prophecies, you'll be disappointed.
I want you to look at this message from a Mayan Elder, Shaman Don Alejandro Perez Oxlaj. My goal is to empower you, not make you feel hopeless and victimized.
The misinterpreted Mayan predictions turned into 2012 doomsday prophecies can't survive into the next Great Age according to the ancient Maya. This 2012 doomsday thinking does not reflect the values of the next Great Age of love, unity, brotherhood and integrity..
So what does the future hold for us in this time leading up to December 21, 2012?
"...the fatal fascination with our technological inventiveness represents a turning away from the forces of light and an actual disregard of our own potential as universal co-creators, we shall not escape the consequences of our actions. The Mayan Long Count Calendar shows that all the evils of the modern world - war, materialism, violence, abuses, injustice, governmental and corporate abuses of power and more will end in 2012. There will be a global awakening to love and unity through divine transformation."The Mayan Factor, Jose Arguelles
"The darkest hour is just before the dawn." We are entering the dark hour soon.
The world IS experiencing pain right now and it will accelerate. Many say the mid to end of 2010 will show an increase in the cleansing process.
"For the truth is that we turn to gadgetry, not willing to own up to the power that lies within our own internal circuitry...a new zeal will be born...Through this zeal a signal shall come tumbling forth, the releasing from the matrix a Campaign for the Earth, the opportunity for human self-redemption." The Mayan Factor, Jose Arguelles
Jose Arguelles and others, through the Harmonic Convergence say their research of the ancient Mayan Long Count calendar shows 2012 doomsday misinterpretations. This is the time of CLEANSING as the Maya predicted.
Yes, we should expect change in all areas that affect our lives including within us, and...lots of it. Some of it may be hard to accept. But all the changes that will take place will be for the greater good. All that doesn't serve us personally and as a species now must go. That includes corrupt governments, corporations, environmentally damaging practices, toxic personal relationships, and negative thinking.
"Only by entering into and being the fullness of the One Law, the One God, I AM, can the individual or the nation escape from the destruction that always precedes a new birth. The new birth is coming and if sufficient mankind will cease to look to the outer but will indeed enter into the stillness, the Great Silence within, and there becomes one with the One Law - Love - then this transitory period from the darkness into Light will take place with the quiet beauty of the unfolding petals of a rose.

Worldwide economic, social, and other problems are in the news. Power, money (material possessions) and control are the values and traits of the present Great Cycle , the Age of Pisces. If the Mayan predictions are true, all the negative side of these traits will be exposed and eliminated in preparation for the next Great Cycle in 2012. To those who fight the change it will feel like 2012 doomsday. I ask you to accept and grow from it.
This is not the first Great Cycle the world has experienced. This cycle began on August 14, 3114 B.C. and heralded in great change as well. The Hindus, and most likely the Egyptians also tracked precession and were aware of Great Cycles.
The government doesn't have the power to stop the economic and financial upheavals. No Obama can't save our way of life. Truth is there isn't a solution available in the world. You may think this is proof 2012 doomsday is upon us...But the Maya saw it quite differently. The old ways don't work anymore for the coming new World Age and must go to make room for the values of the next World Age.
"Development of Trust: First, they must go through what might be called "a period of undoing." This need not be painful, but it usually is so experienced. It seems as if things are being taken away, and it is rarely understood initially that their lack of value is merely being recognized. How can lack of value be perceived unless the perceiver is in a position where he must see things in a different light? He is not yet at a point at which he can make the shift entirely internally. And so the plan will sometimes call for changes in what seem to be external circumstances. These changes are always helpful." A Course in Miracles, Foundation for Inner Peace
The 2012 doomsday fears cause the hording of material things. I'm not suggesting that you shouldn't have extra food, energy sources, etc. available. But, you can't prepare for 2012 by accumulating food, money, guns, etc. We have relied on the physical so long we've forgotten our source of true power and safety. Fear makes us REACT instead of KNOW. Fear causes bad decisions.
Your safety lies within and always has. This time of preparation for December 21, 2012 is not about the material. It's about the spiritual. This study from Berkley, CA shows we are growing as a planet. The only way to make you look within is to take away your worldly safety nets as the Course in Miracles states above. This may feel like 2012 doomsday is coming true. But it forces you to go within and trust your inner guidance.
There's only one true and lasting way to prepare for December 21, 2012. Clean your mental houses to allow your pure spirit to shine through. The power of forgiveness is the most effect way to heal negativity stored within in the chakras. The only thing separating you from knowing your divine self are negative thoughts and actions. These traits are not of God. Your spirit is.
Many 2012 doomsday prophecies are based on the thought we should be punished for our transgressions. We have to pay for environmental excess, social maladies, over population and greed. All these 2012 doomsday prophecies are based on fear and lack! Let this go!!! Understand...it's NEVER God trying to punish us.
It's time to forgive and release, not punish or blame. During this time of cleansing, we are being asked to CLEAR our minds of the negativity that has built up over our soul's lifetime. In fact we are being forced to look at our lives right now. Negativity has taken its toll on our happiness, our health our values, and the earth.
We can't change this trend any more than we can stop the natural change in the seasons. We are entering an era of love, brotherhood, unity and integrity, the Age of Aquarius.God/The Universe is in charge. The divine is orchestrating this tremendous change and the ultimate goal is to move us out of pain and suffering to a higher level of consciousness. We all know there is something much better than the life we have now no matter how good you think you have it.
Gregg Braden, a Mayan scholar is a man who has tremendous insight and knowledge of the changes we are experiencing.
There is another way to prepare for the next Great Age beginning December 21, 2012. It'll also calm your 2012 doomsday fears. Embrace the values of the next Great Age. The key is to always look out for the greater good of the whole of humanity and the planet. Progress occurs when ALL gain, and no one and no thing loses. When you take the whole into consideration you automatically take care of yourself.
It's time to unite all people as one.
At what point did we give up on our higher consciousness? When we separated from nature and God, we separated from divine inspiration. Another separation occurred when we switched to linear time from natural circular time. We tried to rely on the limited abilities of the intellect. As Dr. Hew Len says, "For each bit of consciousness, we experience at least one million bits unconsciously. And the one bit is useless for our salvation."
We can't THINK our way out of the problems in the world today. Our safety comes from TRUSTING divine inspiration from the higher power. It's time to ask for help and guidance from the divine.
Soon we'll remember our true birthright, and we'll no longer settle for limitation.
"Then the past, the forgotten, and, yes, even the "what-is-to-come," will become conscious. The "return" is actually a making conscious of what has been storing up, and at the same time an increase in knowing. We shall see that events, which the old paradigm refused to acknowledge, had been turned into forms of fear in our mind. In that fresh moment of seeing, harmonic convergence we shall know that fear no longer. For in the consciousness is light." The Mayan Factor, Jose Arguelles
We'll have a multi-dimensional knowing again, which encompasses more than the physical earth plane. There will be no memory of 2012 doomsday because fear will be replaced by love. We will TRUST in the universal forces, and God's love to guide us to a happier more fulfilled human experience. We will once again be in sync with the natural forces of the Universe on circular time.
"Only the eternal can be loved, for love does not die. What is of God is His forever, and you are of God. If you will accept yourself as God created you, you will be incapable of suffering." A Course in Miracles, The Foundation for Inner Peace
