Joy Not Fear: Preparing for the December 21, 2012 Shift

Dear Planetary Friends

Here we are, in the “countdown” for December 21. 2012– the much publicized and much misunderstood closing of the Mayan Calendar and the Great Shift of the Ages. Everything that I have learned firsthand, from three Mayan Elders and a Taino/Mayan Elder, and other Indigenous Elders confirms that this cosmic opportunity for transformation is too important to squander.

What should we do to prepare? Stay focused on joy not fear. I will explain why, why that  really matters, and how to do so. Please share this information widely, as I am hearing that fear has been increasing due to profound misrepresentation of the authentic Mayan message, for which I have been privileged to be a mouthpiece. If you already know the basics, just skip down to “ Come to the Global Birth Party” and read from there.

Rare Galactic Alignments Bringing Transformational Energies

The historic 26,000 year cosmic cycle of the Precession of the Equinoxes tracked by the Long Counts of the Mayan Calendar (and many other spiritual and Indigenous traditions) is coming to a close on the Winter Solstice of December 21, 2012. And it is being punctuated by cosmic activity: a rare Galactic alignment of our Earth and Sun with the Dark Hole in the center of our Milky Way Galaxy, called the Galactic Center. Then the Mayan Calendar resets to zero, and a new Calendar count begins tracking the next 26,000 year cycle of the Precession of the Equinoxes. But why is all this so significant?

The Maya were not simply tracking cosmic cycles and alignments with their astounding technology and science. They were tracking cycles of the evolution of consciousness. And this 26,000 year cycle’s final Galactic alignment signifies cosmic support for a leap of consciousness by humanity. A shift of consciousness into greater oneness and the power of Love.

During this Galactic alignment timeframe (energetically peaking across the three days of December 21, 22, and 23, according to some of the Mayan Elders), the Earth, the Sun and the Center of our Milky Way Galaxy are in a straight line. That alignment is understood by many Indigenous Elders and many spiritual traditions as bringing transformational energies to Earth. At a spiritual/energetic level this alignment is about interconnection. Unity. Oneness. Our human hearts become connected with the Heart of the Earth, the Heart of the Sun, and the Heart of our Galaxy. The pulse of the Universal Life force is in a unifying alignment.

In the process, humanity is supported in shifting out of a limited ego-ic consciousness of separation, and into an expanded spiritually-based consciousness of interconnection. It becomes less compelling to operate from fear, greed, exploitation and domination. It becomes more natural to operate from compassion, loving kindness, cooperation and sharing. We are more empowered from within to reclaim Earth as a Home of Love. We let go of the love of power. This is to be celebrated and embraced, not feared.

We Are Co-Creating Our Future…NOW

New Earth New DivineHuman

And, if we are willing to step out of the usual busyness and pay attention, we will be able to notice a great sense of intimate interconnection with all levels of Creation. Are you interested in having that experience? If you miss it this time, you will have to wait another 26,000 years for the opportunity!

So, we are privileged to be living at this momentous time, to bear witness to this process, but more importantly, to participate as Conscious Co-Creators bringing forth the world we most long for and are increasingly able to create: A New Earth of peace, justice, harmony, heart, love, creative self-expression and beauty. (Add your own transformational adjectives here…!)

Ac Tah, Mayan spiritual teacher from the Yucatan, taught us that if only 10% of the populations the U.S and Mexico can remain focused on the experiences of joy and peace, it will shift things for all the rest of us. The power of even the square root of 1% of the population meditating for peace has been scientifically demonstrated to reduce crime within a 100 mile radius (google the Transcendental Meditation experiments). It turns out that our thoughts and especially our feelings do matter; they are co-creative. Conscious choice is the key factor here. We had best make it GOOD, Honey!

A Window of Opportunity; Not an Apocalyptic Event

It bears repeating: This Galactic alignment ending the Mayan Calendar is not an apocalyptic event, but a magnificent window of opportunity for a  human upgrade of consciousness, that each person must step into and open up in their own way, to participate from their heart and Soul. It truly is up to each of us to make it good.

In truth, we have been in this “window” for several years. Most of you have probably already noticed this! Overall, humanity’s consciousness has been progressing towards greater spiritual awareness, compassion, and caring interconnection…despite what the nightly news would have us believe. Much of this shift is happening “under the radar.”

cosmic spiral

 The planetary upgrade process (as I am fond of calling it) was inaugurated by the Harmonic Convergence planetary alignments of 1987, amplifying the consciousness of the Feminine frame of reference: right-brain frequencies of heart, right-relationship, intuition, feelings, creativity, and interconnection. It ramped up in 1998 with the planetary alignments at that time. It peaks at December 21, 22, and 23, 2012.

The transformational impact of the December 21, 2012 Galactic alignment continues beyond 2012, according to Mayan Elders Don Alejandro, Grandmother Flordemayo and Ac Tah (who all came to Pittsburgh, PA to teach their authentic messages) and according to other planetary workers and visionaries who are working with these processes.

Come to the Global Birth Party

Barbara Marx Hubbard is one of these “others,” an 80-something year old non- Indigenous planetary visionary, who has inspired a BIG plan for this Shift of the Ages. Her vision begins on the day after the Mayan Calendar ends, December 22, 2012, with global “Hub” based celebrations focusing on finding what is working worldwide, as the basis for expanding the good.

Birth 2012

Barbara Marx Hubbard’s “BIRTH 2012” planetary birth celebration plans can be found online at  www.theShiftNetwork.com and www.BarbaraMarxHubbard.com .  Her plans include “three days of Love” (December 20, 21, 22) with millions of registered participants infusing the “Noosphere” (the collective heart/mind consciousness) with our experiences of love, Oneness with each other, and our highest visions of co-creative culture. And a big global celebration will be live-streamed on December 22.

Local communities (and individuals!) are invited to set up their own related Birth 2012 events, and to register to participate in the live streaming of the Shift Network’s global events on December 22. Our local Pittsburgh PA Birth 2012 gathering plans can be found at  www.heartofpittsburgh.com/mayan.html. The point is to  be the change we want to see… feel the change…take aligned  action for the change…and do this with Kindred Spirits …you get the drift. It is prophetic and totally true, “we are the ones we have been waiting for.”

What to Do Post 2012?

After the hubbub dies down, the real work to find what is really working across the planet that supports our highest visions must accelerate. We will be inspired to find the others who share our passions and visions and to join them in creative collaboration, to continue manifesting the highest vision of a New Earth and a New Humanity based in the power of Love.

What will this look like? How will we do this?


My newly published book,  The Seer and The Sayer: Revelations of the New  Earth is my timely true story that not only guides us into the landscape of this transformed post-2012 New Earth, but shows with vivid miracles and synchronicities  how to bring forth this longed-for future. My story chronicles astonishing examples that  all levels of Creation are aware, and are participating in this Shift of the Ages with us. And the invitation becomes irresistible to co-create with this loving Intelligence within Creation, expressing through Nature– through our Mother Earth—to write the next story of Creation together….an Era of Peace.

What do I mean by this? Read more about my book  here. Or better, read my book!

The Seer and The Sayer: Revelations of the New Earth is available in paperback, hardback, and e-book formats, and through my website, www.WholePersonWholePlanet.com.

You can also order it through the publisher at BalboaPress.com, through Amazon.com, and through your favorite booksellers.

In the local Pittsburgh PA area, Journeys of Life Bookstore and Gift Shop in Shadyside is carrying my book. I love supporting independent book stores, and this one is a jewel.

So here, dear Planetary Friends,

 is my recommendation for the best preparation for the ending of the Mayan Calendar and the beginning of the Shift of the Ages:

remain in your hearts,

attuned in sacred listening,

in compassion and commitment;

stay focused on joy and peace;

and continue feeling and creating your highest vision of a transformed New Earth.


Celebrate its emergence through us all.

I love Rumi’s poetry that sums all this complexity in a simple verse:

Something big is coming…it’s still secret, but arriving everywhere!

See you in the post 2012 transformed New Earth…
