What The Mayans Say About 2012

Everyone has heard of the Mayan Calendar. The Mayans lived long ago in Central America and predicted that the world would "end" on December 21, 2012, (12-21-2012). Perhaps it is really that the world will end as we know it, but not really end. It is the end of an old paradigm, a transition into a new paradigm and 2012 is only the beginning of this transition into a new frequency of being. There may or may not be the cataclysmic events that are described in the prophecies and predictions.

Several Mayan Calendars

The Mayans created several calendars, and the one that people are referring to when they say "Mayan Calendar" concerning the December 21, 2012 date is the long count calendar. This calendar looks at the long term rhythms of the universe. The Mayans see time like a river. The Mayans also see changes in time as differences of tones, frequencies or even octaves, not just a hard measurement of something that never changes.

It takes a long time for the calendar to go through one cycle. The shorter of the long count cycles are approximately 5,000 years and the longest is 26,000 years which coincides with the galactic alignment that happens once every 26,000 years.

Eastern Indian teachings refer to these cycles as "yugas" of which there are four. At this time Earth is leaving the Kali yuga, considered a dark yuga where pain, suffering, and destruction are the energies which Earth must travel through during this yuga. Yugas are like seasons, and the Kali yuga could be considered winter on an energy level.

The Mayan long count calendar has 13 moons, months. It also has 360 days as opposed to the 365 days of the Gregorian calendar that we use today. It is considered more accurate than the 365 day Gregorian calendar. There was also a 584 day Venus cycle calendar that was used and maintained. Another Mayan calendar is an 819 day calendar that not much is known about because many of the records about it were destroyed. The Tzolkin calendar is a 260 day calendar with 20 specific days with specific names each month, of which there were 13 months.

Tzolkin Mayan Calendar

This Mayan calendar has 260 days in a year, 13 months, and 20 days each month. The 20 days are named individually and each day has its own vibration and meaning. This calendar is thought to be based on the time that it takes for a pregnancy to begin and finish, and that possibly this calendar was used for tracking births. It is common that a child be named after the day it was born, since that particular vibration is what the baby is said to have stepped into the river of time, the vibration at which the child is meant to live this lifetime, and the child's name would have some variation of or some similarity to the name of the day he or she was born. This is the calendar this practice was based on.

Haab Mayan Calendar

The Haab is a Mayan calendar made up of 18 months with 20 days each, plus a period of 5 extra nameless days called Wyeb. The 5 nameless days were considered a time when the dimensions overlap and dark spirits can come and wreak havoc on the Earth. That was a time when people stayed in their homes and laid low. There were also rituals that were done to prevent these spirits from doing harm to the Earth or anyone on it. The Haab is not nearly as accurate as the other Mayan calendars and was mostly meant for keeping track of the seasons.

The Mayan Venus Cycle

The Venus Cycle is another Mayan Calendar that determines when is a good time for war, conquest and efforts to launch large projects. This was an astronomical feat where the Venus Cycle was tracked quite accurately. The Venus Cycle was determined by that specific rising of Venus at any given time, and by those rhythms, the Venus Cycle let Mayans know when the time was right for certain endeavors. When Venus was rising, that was the time to launch a war, and the rulers used this divination for planning their actions.

Mayan Long Count Calendar

Supposedly the Mayan long count calendar cycle that we are in now began August 11, 3114 BC and it would correlate with the approximately 5000 year cycle that is about to come to a close in 2012. The exact amount of solar years in the long count calendar is 5125 solar years. In this calendar are 5 baktuns. A katun is a larger increment, the completion of one of these entire cycles of 5 baktuns. Once a cycle is completed, the whole thing starts again but according to Mayan interpretation, it is the same frequency but at an octave higher, and around for another 5 baktuns it goes, but at a higher vibration. Same lessons, same challenges, but this time they are handled a different way, a more evolved way.

The Mayan Calendar is based on a system of base-20 rather than the base-10 decimal system we use today. The Mayan name for a day was a Kin. Twenty Kins is the equivalent of a month, a Uinal or Winal in Mayan language. A month in the Mayan calendar is 20 days. Eighteen Uinals make a year, or a Tun. A year in the mayan calendar is 360 days. Twenty years, or Tuns, make a Katun. Twenty Katuns make a Baktun. A Katun is 144,000 Kin, or days, and because of that, a Baktun is approximately 400 solar years. (394.3 to be exact).

What The Mayans Say About 2012

First of all, the Mayans say that 2012 is not an approximate date. It is a window in which change will happen. They have said that it could be anywhere between 2007 and 2015, so December 21, 2012 is not an exact time when something drastic is supposed to happen. It could happen any time, they say, up until 2015. So don't be surprised if nothing happens on December 21, 2012. It might be uneventful. However, don't be surprised if something happens before 2012, since that is just as possible.

The Mayan Council delivers a message of hope, not despair. It is not the end of the world, but the end of the cycle. A new cycle begins and humankind enters an age of doing things differently at a higher "octave," more peacefully and more compassionately. It is the end of the old world and the beginning of a new world, a new society. The Mayans say that this could be a beautiful passage or something difficult, depending on how humanity handles it. Either way, the result is a brand new path for humanity for the better.

Mayan Calendar end is 12 21 2012 called the Long Count Countdown December, Dec, 20 Baktun=1 Katun, Kin=1 day Aztec. doomsday, doom, world end? Not by Mayan standards.

2012 is only the beginning, not the end.

2012 Survival Basics

Also read the recent Christine Breese 2012 article about how you can be involved. There is more than just what is depicted in the 2012: We Were Warned movie. It is a spiritual tug of war in the realm of duality between darkness and light, fear and love. See what you can do to change the odds and step outside of duality and assist.

UMS Only Delivers Information

University of Metaphysical Sciences isn't saying whether drastic things will happen or not. It is simply our job to do research and present you with information that you can use as you wish. No one knows what is going to happen, but since many people have these questions, we present to you what our research has brought up.
