Followers of New Age spirituality have long turned to
indigenous religions for wisdom and inspiration, so it has not escaped their
notice that something big happens in 2012: the ancient and complex Mayan
calendar—studied by astrology, spirituality and history buffs alike—has chugged
along for 1,872,000 days, and its cycle stops (and restarts) on Dec. 21,
2012.



Speculation over the 2012 cycle
change has spurred a growing cottage industry. Amazon.com shows more than 100
books on the subject, with titles like "Doomsday 2012" and "2012: You Have a
Choice!" A number of spirituality conferences are already convening. This month
in New Mexico, spiritual seekers will gather for a "2012 Ascension Symposium,"
which promises to "offer humanity global reassurance and change the
Consciousness of the world"; metaphysics author Geoff Stray is giving a series
of lectures on 2012 throughout 2006 and 2007, including at the UFO Conference in
Nevada in February and a "Healing Conference" in Jericho, Israel, in
May.


To add to the frenzy, it just so
happens that the years building up to 2012 mark an unusual astronomical
alignment, one so rare it occurs only in 30 out of every 26,000 years. During
this period, the Sun will make its annual crossing of the galactic equator—the
plane that bisects the Milky Way as it appears in the sky—on the same day as the
winter solstice. So what does all this mean? A small group of doomsayers believe
a life-ending cataclysm is on the horizon. Patrick Geryl, a Belgian researcher,
says he believes the alignment will trigger a reversal in the magnetic fields of
the Sun, causing it to get 10 or 20 times hotter, which will reverse the Earth's
rotation on its axis and flood its inhabitants (mainstream astronomers don't
agree).


Meso-American scholars are far
less concerned. In Mayan cosmology, time proceeds in cycles—not in a straight
line. "The world collapses, but then it gets reborn," says Davíd Carrasco,
professor of Latin American religions at Harvard University. (The Maya believe
the same thing happens when the Sun rises and sets each day.) Literary-magazine
editor Daniel Pinchbeck, author of "2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl," sees the
new cycle as an opportunity for personal and spiritual growth. Instead of
looking at the completion of the 5,125-year cycle as "the end," Pinchbeck
suggests that 2012 "could be more like the birth of the world."

I have been really interested in the theories of 2012 for a while now, and I lean towards the theory that 2012 is the dawn of a new spiritual age, it has been happening for a few years with people being more open about there beliefs and standing up to be counted.

I for one do not believe that 'the end of the world is nigh' but a concious shift towards a more spiritual way of living is starting.

Blessed be

i sure hope you are right hun,
i have to look at this in many different lights as the whole 20/12 buisness covers a wide array of topics and ideas .
on my paranormal site i have had to look into the positive and more negative ramifications and whilst they can be very scary and worrysome, i have to admit i find it all very fascinating. xxx

Yes it is very fascinating, I just worry for those that are taking 2012 so seriously, when Dec 21 2012 come and goes with no noticeable change in day to day life just as Haleys comet and the millenium bug passed by without incident.

I don't know to much about the theories of 2012, I am aware that there is suppose to be a spiritual shift, much more powerful to the normal ones we get at the end of each year.
I have noticed a lot of changes already in the way people think and act, more and more people are becoming open minded, while others are showing their true colours.

I totally agree with you, it is as if two very distinct groups are emerging - with some surprising results, like people you always considered friends and close, suddenley being very different. I hope I am considered in the more open minded group - thats where I feel I am....

ive read that 2012 is significant in a way of the earth is going to shift in a way that if you are not mentaly and spiritually prepared in many aspects of life. i think its going to be the begining of survival of the fittist and if not enough people are enlightened the demonic powers that be will win and conquor, life as we no is changing rapidly its just time to recognise the changes and prepare ourselves.
