Many people are opting to stay home on December 21, wanting to be near loved ones. I personally will be at my favorite place on earth, Serpent Mound in Peebles, Ohio with many of my very favorite people. In my humble opinion, Serpent Mound is one of the most sacred places on earth. It is certainly the most sacred spot on the East Coast of the United States and I wouldn’t miss this for anything.
On this particular night the Friends of Serpent Mound (FOSM) will be holding a Lighting Ceremony where they light candles to outline the Serpent just as the darkness descends on this, the longest day of the year in the Northern hemisphere. The lighting is both symbolic in that the kundalini energy, or life force energy, is kept lit even in the darkest of times. And it is magical to see the gorgeous effigy mound, built so many years ago by unknown hands (if hands were indeed involved) surrounded in light.
If you have ever been to Serpent Mound you know that the place practically glows. There is an energy in the air that lights you up like a light bulb from the inside out. It is impossible to visit Serpent Mound without feeling like you’ve been plugged in to some unseen source of electricity. You feel ALIVE and cared for by the earth itself. For me, personally, it brings me back to life when my soul starts to feel weary or tired. I can’t imagine my life without my frequent trips to visit this amazing mound.
I’m also going to take a minute to explore the idea that there is a reason to be at the sacred sites on this holiest of days, December 21, 2012. No one yet knows if Jose Arguelles was correct in his research that leads us to believe that this is the end of the long count calendar of the Maya. Was it true that this cycle of the earth is ending and a new is being born? And if so, what does that mean?
Well, if we look to the Maya themselves we can see that there was a time in history when there sacred cities were “abandoned.” It would, in modern times, be like all of Jerusalem just disappearing overnight with no real evidence as to where they went. This to me, is notable. Yes, many in the 3D world will try to tell you that they know what happened but its all speculation. And so I choose to think that maybe the Maya were passing on information to us that is worth listening to. That we too might just be experiencing the same shift of ages that they experienced. And I personally believe that it is possible that the Maya aligned with this energy to experience a mass shift in consciousness that took them to another frequency or dimension. One could call it ascension.
So I ask myself, what if the Calendar is accurate and what if Arguelles was right in his calculations? I know its fanciful thinking, considered ridiculous by many, but I don’t really care what people think. All I can say is that I will be here, at Serpent Mound, standing on sacred ground when this holiest of holy days arrives.
For those who are interested, I will be available to do a Merkaba activation at 12:12. I’m not sure where I’ll be located because I don’t know what the weather will allow. If you are going to be there and you wish to participate, you can reach me on my cell phone at 304-917-6061.
Find out more by going to www.serpentmound.org.
There’s also a whole host of events going on all during the day but I haven’t been able to find a listing. As soon as I locate it, I’ll be sure to let you know.
I just wanted to remind everyone that we are still running the “End of the World Special.” As a metaphysical university, we thought it was our duty to help you reach enlightenment in the next few weeks!
As part of the End of the World Special, which we REALLY created in response to the results of the survey we conducted last month, students can enjoy any course at IMU for only $350 through December 21. You can even sign up for a whole degree at this rate and we can put you on a payment plan to boot.
This cuts you a break on the prices and gives us a chance to test the results of the survey to see if this lowered price results in substantially higher enrollments. It is a short window of opportunity. We hope many people take advantage.
If you are interested, sign up http://intermetu.com/enroll-now/register-for-courses/. Its the only place on our website that represents the lowered prices. You can also email me and I’ll send you an invoice directly.
I know that we at IMU have been joking about the End of the World through our End of the World Special, but I think it is important to remember just how special these days really are. As someone who followed Carl Johan Calleman’s research on the Mayan Calendar with great love, I know that these events are real. I also know that numerology is real. I know that we are “on a plan” and that consciousness will prevail. Light WILL prevail. Love WILL prevail and the duality and darkness that has such power on our planet right now WILL be overcome. Whether it will happen as we align with the galactic center (assuming this information has some veracity) on December 21 is an unknown. But I do believe with all of my heart that we are entering a divine age, a time when we will fully remember who we are.
And when I read Patricia Cota-Robles most recent post, I knew I had to share. These are such amazing and important times. And I am so grateful to be a part of it.

Fasten your seat belts. We have ALL been preparing for this Cosmic Moment for Lifetimes. Know that the end result of this amazing ride is going to be glorious. Remember, you already have within you everything you need to fulfill your part of this Divine Plan. Enter your heart and from within the sacred place of the Most High Living God, ask your I AM Presence to reveal to you the magnitude of the opportunities unfolding on Earth at this time that will allow YOU to add to the Light of the world.
During the next six weeks, we will experience several powerful influxes of Light that have the capability of moving the Earth and all Life abiding on this planet forward in the Light a quantum leap. In order for this to be accomplished God Victoriously, this Light must be drawn into physical manifestation through the Heart Flames of people abiding in the physical plane. That means you and me!
The success of these events will create the necessary catalyst that will result in the birthing of the New Earth in all her resplendent glory. This birth will take place in the Realms of CAUSE during Earth’s alignment with the galactic core of the Milky Way, which will happen during the days of the Solstice, December 21-22, 2012. Even though we will not experience all of the perfection of the New Earth in our daily lives on December 23, 2012, the Company of Heaven want us to understand that once something has occurred in the Realms of CAUSE nothing can prevent it from eventually manifesting in the world of EFFECTS. The only variable is how long that will take and that is up to you and me and every other person existing on Earth.
The patterns of perfection for the New Earth must be drawn into the physical plane, the world of Effects, through the thoughts, words, feelings, actions, and beliefs of the Sons and Daughters of God abiding on Earth. These patterns include the archetypes for both our New Planetary Cause of Divine Love and our newly birthed Renaissance of Divine Love. The paradigm for the New Earth reflects the profound Truth that “We are One with ALL Life” and that there is no separation. It also contains the viable solutions that will allow Humanity to respond to every situation on Earth with Reverence for ALL Life.
I will briefly share with you the Divine Intent of the various influxes of Light, and the opportunity we will have to add to the Light of the world during these events, as revealed to us by the Beings of Light in the Realms of Illumined Truth. In addition to this information your I AM Presence will reveal to you the part of the plan YOU have been prepared to fulfill during this unprecedented moment on Earth. In order for you to be the Open Door for this influx of Light, which you are destined to be, it is critical that you remain in a state of Listening Grace and respond according to your inner guidance
The first step of this 40-day process begins today with the influx of Light that occurs every year on November 11th, 11:11. This year we are experiencing an exponential expansion of the Light that was anchored last year, in the core of purity, in every electron of precious Life energy on Earth. That occurred during the 11:11:11 celebrations of November 11, 2011. That influx of Light activated Humanity’s pineal glands and began the initial impulse of Earth’s Ascension into her new 5th-Dimensional Solar Reality. That event greatly expanded our new Planetary CAUSE of Divine Love. The success of that facet of the Divine Plan paved the way for the Birth of a Renaissance of Divine Love which occurred during the 25th Anniversary of Harmonic Convergence in August 2012.
Eleven is the master number that reflects THE TRANSFORMATION OF THE PHYSICAL INTO THE DIVINE. Every man, woman, and child embodied on Earth has the sacred geometry of 11 and 11:11 and 11:11:11 encoded within the Divine Potential of our RNA and DNA structures. These codes are activated by our I AM Presence when we move through various phases of our Ascension process. During the next six weeks, our I AM Presence will activate these codes in new and profound ways. This will accelerate the Divine Alchemy of Humanity’s transformation from carbon-based planetary Beings into crystalline-based Solar Light Beings. This activation will be greatly intensified by the Solar and Lunar Eclipses that will take place this month.
On November 13, 2012, we will experience a very powerful New Moon Solar Eclipse. The Light flowing into the Earth through this celestial alignment will enhance Earth’s Ascension into her new Solar Reality. The Solar Record Keeper Crystals that were placed throughout Earth’s Crystal Grid System during the influx of Light on 11:11:11, and the new frequencies of the 5th-Dimensional Solar Violet Flame of God’s Infinite Perfection that Saint Germain and his Legions of the Violet Flame secured on Earth in May 2012, will be amplified a thousandfold during this Solar Eclipse. This will allow the necessary purging of the Earth and the cleansing process that is being accomplished by the Elemental Kingdom to move forward in more gentle ways.
The devastation that took place in the United States of America during Hurricane Sandy was heartbreaking, but the number of people who survived that powerful purging process was an act of Divine Grace. The positive thing that seems to always happen when this kind of tragedy takes place in the world is that people everywhere revert to the inner knowing that We are One and that there is no separation. Even the least likely people open their hearts and with love, compassion, and genuine caring they reach out to help their sisters and brothers in the Family of Humanity. In these painful situations people around the world invoke the Light of God on behalf of those who are suffering, which gives the Company of Heaven permission to intervene in awesome ways. It is a great benefit, and not by chance, that we are entering this important phase of the Divine Plan with the hearts of people everywhere open to full breadth.
After the Solar Eclipse the Light will build in momentum until we experience the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on November 28, 2012. In the midst of that building momentum of Light, on November 22nd, we will celebrate Thanksgiving Day in the USA. When millions of people simultaneously turn their attention to the people, places, conditions, and things they are grateful for in their lives, it creates a collective cup of consciousness that allows the Divine Quality of Gratitude to expand, expand, and expand through all Life on this sweet Earth. That expansion of Gratitude will greatly intensify the positive effects of the Lunar Eclipse.
The Lunar Eclipse on November 28th, will expand the Open Heart energy of both Humanity and Mother Earth. This will allow the I AM Presence of every person on Earth to magnetize the patterns of perfection from our newly birthed Renaissance of Divine Love more effectively from the Realms of Cause. This will pave the way for the powerful activities of Light that will occur in December.
On December 12, 2012, 12:12:12, our Mother God—the Holy Spirit, and the Feminine Aspects of Deity throughout all Creation, will breathe into the Earth’s Crystal Grid System the highest frequencies of God’s Transfiguring Divine Love that Life on this planet is capable of withstanding. Due to the monumental influxes of Light that have occurred over the past several decades, and especially since the Dawn of the New Millennium, this will be the greatest influx of Divine Love Humanity has ever experienced.
For over 500 years, December 12th has been celebrated in Mexico and throughout Central and South America as the Feast Day of the Virgin of Guadalupe. For millions of people this aspect of Mother Mary has symbolized the return of the Divine Feminine, our Mother God. On 12-12-12, our Mother God, and Her exponents representing the Divine Feminine throughout all Creation, will cocreate a Forcefield of Divine Love that will envelop every atomic and subatomic particle and wave of Life on Earth, and all of the spaces in-between the particles and waves of Life. This forcefield will reinforce a multidimensional and multifaceted Womb of Divine Love and a Birth Canal of Divine Love that will assure Earth’s safe passage up the Spiral of Evolution, and the Birth of the New Earth in the Realms of Cause.
The Beings of Light are aware that in most instances this information is beyond the comprehension of our finite minds. But they assure us that the I AM Presence of each and every one of us clearly understands the bigger picture of what is happening on this planet. They said that adding to the Light of the world during this miracle of the Shift of the Ages and the Birth of the New Earth in all her splendor, is exactly why we volunteered to embody on Earth at this time.
It will help to remember the reality that the Company of Heaven has reiterated to us over and over again. They have told us that as Sons and Daughters of God we are multidimensional Beings existing in many levels of consciousness simultaneously. They said the physical plane that we think is so tangible and real is actually the least real of all of the dimensions we abide in, and that the physical plane of Earth is the very last dimension to reflect the changes that Humanity is cocreating in the Realms of Cause.
The events of 12-12-2012 will be the final steps of preparation leading up to the December Solstice and the Birth of the New Earth on 12-21-2012. These two dates reverberate with the master number 11, 1+2+1+2+2+0+1+2=11 and 1+2+2+1+2+0+1+2=11, the numerical frequency of the transformation of the physical into the Divine. Isn’t God fun?
On December 21-22, 2012, the Earth will align with the Galactic Core of the Milky Way. This will open a portal of Light that will extend from the very Heart of our omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent Father-Mother God—the Cosmic I AM—All That Is, into the Divine Momentum pulsating in the center of the Earth. This influx of Light will flow through God’s all-encompassing Divine Matrix to bless every particle of Life on this planet. This Divine Matrix is the Body of our Father-Mother God within which all Creation lives, moves, breathes, and has its Being. This influx of Light will begin the process that will Birth the New Earth in the Realms of Cause. This will be Earth’s New Beginning. From that moment forth, the patterns of our Planetary Cause of Divine Love and our Renaissance of Divine Love will easily flow into the mental and emotional strata of Earth. Humanity will be able to easily tap into these patterns of perfection and through our thoughts, words, feelings, actions and beliefs we will bring them into manifest form. These patterns contain the viable solutions to every humanly-created malady existing on Earth.
The Birth of the New Earth will accelerate the awakening of even the most recalcitrant souls, thus causing a shift that will take place in the energy, vibration, and consciousness of each and every one. This shift will reflect a new level of understanding that all Life is interconnected, interrelated, and interdependent. These precious souls will begin to realize that what affects one part of Life affects all Life. From this new awareness people will be inspired to work together to find win-win solutions that will benefit every person and enhance the existence of every facet of Life on Earth.
The Company of Heaven has given us an activity of Light that will greatly assist in preparing Humanity and the Earth for the influxes of Light that will take place during the next six weeks. Please participate in this opportunity according to your Heart’s Call. This is our moment. Our time is at hand.
DIVINE LOVE VISUALIZATION
Now in Oneness with the I AM Presence of every person on Earth and the entire Company of Heaven, I AM the Cup, The Holy Grail, through which the Love of God now lifts every particle of Life evolving on this precious planet.
I AM my I AM Presence, and I invoke my Father-Mother God to release the Love of God flowing through the Divine Matrix. Beloved Ones, project this Love into the Heart Flame of every person on Earth, and direct every person’s I AM Presence to expand this Love until it envelops the entire Planet Earth. (pause)
The Earth is now a blazing Sun of Divine Love pulsating in our Solar System. On the Holy Breath, our Father-Mother God and the Aspects of the Divine Feminine throughout Infinity expand the Love of God that is flowing through the Divine Matrix and breathe it into the Sun of Even Pressure in the center of the Earth. As the Love of God merges with the Divine Momentum pulsating in the Heart of Mother Earth, she breathes this unfathomable influx of Love into her Crystal Grid System to bless all Life.
Now our Father-Mother God invoke the Angels of Transfiguring Divine Love from the very Core of Creation and direct them to traverse the planet north, south, east, and west. In response to our God Parent’s Heart Call, these selfless messengers of God enter the aura of every man, woman, and child on Earth in preparation for an Activity of Light that will bathe the planet in 5th-Dimensional Crystalline frequencies of Transfiguring Divine Love. This frequency of Love is beyond anything Humanity has ever been able to receive.
Now as One Breath, One Heartbeat, One Voice, and One Energy, Vibration, and Consciousness of pure Divine Love the Angels of Transfiguring Divine Love breathe into the Heart Flame of the I AM Presence of every person on Earth, the most intensified frequencies of Love Humanity is capable of receiving.
This wondrous Love penetrates into my Crystalline Threefold Flame, which is now enveloping my physical, etheric, mental, and emotional bodies. On the Holy Breath, this influx of Love expands through my Heart Chakra and flows into the Heart Chakra of every person on Earth.
Through this amazing influx of Love, the I AM Presence of every person becomes a power point of Divine Love unified in consciousness with the I AM Presence of every other person, inbreathing, assimilating, expanding, and projecting this forcefield of Love throughout the Earth to bless Humanity, the Elemental Kingdom, the Angelic Kingdom, and All Creation.
The I AM Presence within every person is now the Open Door for this resplendent Love. We are collectively changing the core vibration of the primal Light substance, which has gone into creating the present negative conditions that are surfacing all over the world to be healed and transmuted into Light.
Through the Love of our Father-Mother God, through the Angels of Transfiguring Divine Love who have selflessly volunteered to remain within the aura of every person on Earth, and through the I AM Presence of every Human Being, we are the CAUSE of this Forcefield of Divine Love anchored on Earth.
On this sacred and holy day, we have set in place the basic spiritual forces of Divine Love over which Humanity will now Ascend out of our long exile in darkness into the 5th-Dimensional Realms of Light. Every person on Earth is now being raised into a profound awakening of supreme Love consciousness—we are, here and now, the Masters of Love we were always destined to be. We are Beings of Love, fully accepting responsibility for Loving this sweet Earth and all her Life FREE. We are One with this blessed planet, and the planet is One with us.
In deep humility and gratitude, every person’s I AM Presence now affirms:
I AM a forcefield of Transfiguring Divine Love. The Love of God is now thriving on Earth through me, and through the I AM Presence of every person on the planet. The blazing Sun of Transfiguring Divine Love that is now enveloping the Earth is transforming into Light every frequency of energy, vibration, and consciousness that is less than God’s Divine Love.
The dedicated Lightworkers who are serving Humanity and the Earth through this Activity of Light are selflessly paving the way for the Birth of the New Earth, and the patterns of perfection for our Planetary CAUSE of Divine Love, and our newly birthed Renaissance of Divine Love.
Through this Activity of Light, the I AM Presence of every person on Earth permanently sets this sweet Earth on the Path of Divine Love. And so it is. Beloved I AM, Beloved I AM, Beloved I AM

Okay the election ended before the Mayan calendar did, though not by much. I have just a word for any political partisans who might read this.
The election is over, and your man won, or lost. Your party won, or lost. Your ideology won, or lost.
None of that is nearly as important was whether you won or lost.
And how could you judge that? Simple enough. Compare yourself to four years ago.
Are you more fearful than you were?
Are you closer to a state of chronic political hatred?
Are you less able to give the benefit of the doubt to opinions that oppose yours?
Some years ago, now, during the reign of King George the Unelected, one day I realized with a shock that I was moving close to a state of chronic anger. I realized that only hatred lay in that direction, and hatred is delayed self-destruction.
The good news is that the condition is curable. It can be reversed by a decision, an act of will. We can choose not to live in a state of fear, and anger, and self-righteousness. But we do have to choose.
Isn’t the aftermath of an election as good a time as any to make that choice?
A friend sent me this link today for a free ebook entitled, “The Truth about 2012″ from Amazon. The book is quite short (about 25 pages) but seems well researched and worth reading. I thought it would be fun to pass on.
Here is a link “The Truth About 2012″ is http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009BV74VM
Thanks Ken for passing it on.

I spent the weekend with thousands of like-minded friends at the Universal Light Expo this past weekend in Columbus. As always it was a glorious time. Perhaps my favorite part of the weekend, however, was dinner with friends on Saturday night. This tradition has continued for many years when some semblance of the same group piles in cars and head off to a local restaurant. For years it was Spaghetti Warehouse where I could indulge in my favorite Chili Mac but recently it has migrated to a local Greek Restaurant with delightful fare and decadent desserts.
Most years, I get the opportunity to hang out with IMU-alumni Mary Phelan and her long-time partner Neville Johnston. This year was no exception. I always enjoy spending time with these two as they have been such important teachers to me in my life. The two are always awash with new ideas and teachings, which isn’t surprising considering they have managed to put together more than 1000 episodes of their legendary TV show, Telepathic TV. Every week they somehow manage to come up with something new to say, having helped many, many people awaken in the process.
So on Saturday night, we were all sitting around talking and the top of 2012 came up. Its a fascinating subject for us as we have been talking about this topic since I first heard of it on Winter Solstice 2002 and here we are, 10 years later, watching the process unfold. I should note here that I am the neophyte in the group. Others among us had been waiting for this day since about the time of the Harmonic Convergence back in August of 1987. That’s 25 years folks!
So I posed the question, “Does anyone think anything is going to happen?”
A spattering of responses ensued. The most profound of which (for me at least) came from Mary.
As she put it (as close as I can remember), “I think it will be real but not noticed. It will be like the in-breath and the out-breath. If you notice, the breath comes very naturally but the change between the in-breath and the out-breath is almost imperceptible. I think it will be like that.”
I thought that was profound and I have been thinking about it ever since. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all collectively be a part of the out breath, of the releasing, the surrendering, where all worry and fear just dissipates? It was a comforting thought and one worth sharing.
With the much touted “shift of the ages” thought by many to be just more than 60 days out, it is certainly a joy to think about.
To learn more about the Mayan Calendar, we offer a terrific class by Carl Johan Calleman.
The International Metaphysical University’s philosophy on health and wealth being is one that comes from a holistic approach to caring for our bodies, minds and spirits. We endeavor, therefore, to keep you abreast of the latest research, positive or negative, on issues that affect your overall “beingness.”
In 1977 high fructose corn syrup entered the food chain. Since then obesity and diabetes have soared in the US and studies have shown that high fructose corn syrup directly contributes to both these health issues.
High fructose corn syrup was created through a process called genetic modification and I am certain that by now nearly everyone around the globe knows about genetically modified organisms and the controversy surrounding them. The following video will educate you even further about the negative affect that GMO’s have on the physical body.
Warning: This video shows the impact of high GMO diets on lab rats. Although it may be hard for many of you to watch we believe it is imperative that everyone be made aware of the fact that legitimate scientific research does now exist and has proven the negative health impact of GMO’s in the bodies of lab rats. For those who think that rats and humans are too far apart to give credence to this study, click here to read about “How Humans are Like Rats.” http://indianapublicmedia.org/amomentofscience/how-humans-are-like-rats/ Janet Decker, Dean of Metaphysics
Mercury Retrograde What does it mean and how does it impact you? – from Karyl Jackson
Source: Alpha Life Trends
MERCURY RETROGRADE: The purpose of Mercury retrograde is to review and revise our life and our connection with reality. The timing of this universe is geared toward the Sun as it moves through the zodiac. Mercury has an orbit that at times gets ahead of the Sun allowing us to look into the future toward new and innovative ideas. However, we cannot continue in that vein until we come back to the present designated by the Sun and put our new ideas into manifestation. During the time that Mercury jumps ahead, we ultimately have to bring the ideas back into the present to test and evaluate to see how they fit into our life. As Mercury retrogrades back into the present, the connection with the Sun happens as we test drive our ideas and re-align with reality and the natural timing of the universe.

I remember the day I first heard about the phenomena of “2012.” It was a notable day indeed. We had recently opened The Self-Health and Awareness Center, which would later become the parent to IMU, and we were having our very first Sunday Gathering and Ceremony. It was December 21st, 2001, the Winter Solstice Celebration. Reverend Randy Hastings, one of the founding deans for IMU, helped me to officiate the service. I had heard great things about Randy in our community though I didn’t know him very well. He was quiet and revered in our circle so I was a little intimidated and highly grateful to have his support in our little enterprise. We were new in town and knew very few people. Most everyone was there to see Randy.
Surprisingly, the service when over like gangbusters. Every seat in the place was filled with people standing in the back. The otherwise common room was lit by candlelight, with all eyes focused on the beautiful alter and the exquisite podium that my then life and business partner Joe Fielder had lovingly built just for the occasion.
I welcomed everyone then introduced Randy. With quiet aplomb, he began the process of invoking the spirits. Names and words I had never heard before sprung from his lips as if it were a language all of his own. The energy in the room heightened as the energies settled into our divine space. With that invocation and the intentions that came with it, SHAC and subsequently IMU was born. The energies of the whole universe and beyond had entered that room toward a common purpose — to commune with the divine on that very sacred day.
As the ceremony ended, I had that sense of elation that I know you all understand…that sense of belonging to something that matters and knowing that you are part of the love of all things. High on the energy, we moved to the lobby for a pot luck dinner. (I still remember that someone had brought baked apples, that seemed particularly appropriate, and quite yummy as well.
The lobby was small with few chairs and so everyone just sat on the stairs. I found myself sitting next to Randy that night, thanking him for helping out and picking his very delightful brain for more info. It was then, as we discussed the power of the winter solstice, that I first heard tell of the prophecies of December 21, 2012.
He began to tell me about the breadth of prophecies that pointed to this very specific date as a date when ascension would occur. The Mayans get the most press on this thanks to the works of Jose Arguelles. But since that time, it has been noted that many other traditions point in the same direction.
At first the ideas were intriguing but held little merit, except that it came from Randy. He was one of these people who had been studying metaphysics for more than 30 years, had a photographic memory, and a personal library of esoteric books that would rival any in the world. (The literally thousands of books still exist and could use an appropriate home if anyone has a place for them and can put them to use…) With knowledge that deep, it was hard to disregard his teachings.
Like everyone, I learned the teachings of the galactic center from Drunvalo Melchizedek and Gregg Braden. I read it all and none of it ever really seemed true. Not, that is, until I got an email from then friend now IMU Dean Janet Decker with a video from a man named Ian Xel Lungold offering an explanation of the Mayan Calender that put it all into perspective. THAT, it was clear, was true. Ian’s teachings, which changed everything for me, were all based on the world of Carl Johan Calleman, who later became a friend and instructor for IMU.
Carl, who was a PhD trained researcher, began to review the Mayan Calendar and put it all into a perspective that made all of the sense in the world. Still does. The problem was that Carl’s calculations indicated that the REAL date for the end of the long count calendar was October 28, 2011. Well, like many, many predictions before it, the date seemed to come and go without the anticipated change. It was, however, one of the favorite days of my whole life. More than 2,000 like-minded people joined together on Serpent Mound that day along with Mayan Elder Hunbatz Men and his crystal skulls. A spontaneous drumming circle ensued with hundreds of drums raising the vibrations. Together we encircled the serpent with love and called for the awakening of a new consciousness, the birth of a new world. The divine answered with a double rainbow and we all knew that something very special had happened.
Sadly, though, nothing obvious happened to the global landscape and Carl’s theories were branded incorrect. Like many others, I was disappointed and saddened. I also felt Carl’s very public flogging, knowing it had to be hard to see the date come and go, and wondering where he went wrong.
So as time has passed I’ve had a lot of time to reflect on everything learned. And as the next “date” looms large on the horizon I have to ask myself if it, too, will come and go without so much as a blip in the cosmic roadmap. Sadly, I think that will be the case.
That doesn’t, however, mean that I think “nothing” is happening. I still believe that Carl’s work holds water. The idea that the earth herself is part of a cosmic and galactic evolution and that this evolution can be charted based on the Hermetic Axiom of “As Above So Below” still seems both true and inevitable. Carl likens the process to the growth of a plant. It starts with a seed, sprouts, buds, flowers, and falls away. The earth, which is also an organic, living being, must follow the same pattern only according to a galactic clock, not a human clock. As humans, its nigh on impossible to get the timing exact as a year to a human may be a second from a galactic perspective.
I still recommend Carl’s course on the Mayan Calendar, which we still offer at IMU, as the information is profound and life-altering, even if the date is not spot on. He also teaches a related course, which is equally spectacular, called “the Purposeful Universe” where he talks about how consciousness is on a schedule and rethinks the theories of both evolution and creationism. It is an absolutely fascinating course.
So if this is the case, what is this great change that we are looking for? Well, we can all theorize but ultimately we can’t know. I personally think the earth is a cell and progresses according to the sacred geometry found in the Tree of Life and Flower of Life. If that is the case, then the Bible itself tells the story of the shift as the birthing of a new heaven and a new earth. How that happens, if it happens, is yet to be seen.
The only thing we do know for sure is that December 21, 2012 is but three months away in human terms. Even for us it is a blink of an eye. Will the date prove to be yet another unheralded and diversionary prophecy? Or is it possible that the Mayans were able to tap into the mind of the cosmos to determine the exact date AND that Jose Arguellas was able to interpret the sacred writings with such precision that he really did get it right? If so, it could be a glorious, glorious day indeed!
All I know is that I am here and willing to be a vessel for any changes that are coming whether it happens in the next three months or not. I know that I will gather with like-minded people on that fateful day in ceremony and celebration trusting that the divine always gets it right even though humans sometimes get it wrong. I personally am looking forward to it and know that whatever happens, we’re all gonna be okay.
I should also note that I will be speaking on this subject at length at the Universal Light Expo on the Saturday, October 13th. If you’re in Columbus, Ohio you are welcome to join me. It would be nice to meet you. While we will not be at the booth all day as in previous years, I will be at ULE and willing to meet with any of you who wish to do so. Just call me on my cell at 304-917-6061. I’ll have it with me and will make it a point point to spend some time. Hope to see you then!
Imu’s own Leslie Zehr along with author and teacher Dan Furst will lead 2 very exciting trips to the sacred sites of Egypt and Peru in 2013.
Trip 1 – Egypt/March 2013
Sacred Sounds in Ancient Egypt: In March of 2013, Dan Furst and Leslie Zehr will guide a 15-day journey to the sacred sites of the Nile Valley and Sinai, with a special emphasis on meditation and soul activation through sound in the great resonant chambers of Khemt, the “Black Land” that is the source of alchemy: that is, the Khemitian art or spiritual practice. Our purpose in doing Sacred Sounds Egypt 2013 is to bring together like-minded singers, healers and adventurers in a spirit of shared intention to explore and recreate the ancient frequencies of sound and movement, and celebrate the wisdom that made Egypt the most profound of all ancient civilizations, at a time when the lost knowledge of the great spiritual root cultures is returning to our consciousness.
Trip 2 – Peru/April 2012
Return to Pachamama: Pachamama is a Quechua word meaning Om el Donya or ‘mother of the world’. Peru, like Egypt, is another ancient culture brimming with history and esoteric wisdom. Even though they are separated by great distance, there are many similarities between these ancient cultures.
In Egypt we have a chance to explore temples and pyramids still very much in tact, holding the energy and wisdom in the stones. Much like the Hierophant Egypt is about the Sacred Text. Peru’s moments might be slightly less intact but it gives us the opportunity to experience sacred space in nature, Pachamama herself, something we don’t have the opportunity to do in Egypt.
