Jose Argüelles and other scholars have for years marked the end of the Mayan calendar as December 21, 2012. This infamous date has been associated with many prophecies of the fate of Earth and humanity. We are anxiously waiting to see if in fact the world is going to have some apocalypse event like Atlantis or if we will all ascend into the 5th Dimension. Many say that the recent catastrophic earthquakes and other disastrous weather conditions are signs of what is to come. However, according to Swedish biologist and author Carl Johan Calleman and one of my favorite authors Barbara Hand Clow the Mayan calendar is a spiritual device that describes the evolution of human consciousness from ancient times into the future and that the great shift in consciousness will take place on October 28, 2011. Calleman’s book, The Mayan Calendar and the transformation of Consciousness, published in 2004, shows the connection between cosmic evolution and actual human history. He contends that the prophetic Mayan calendar is not keyed to the movement of planetary bodies. Instead, it functions as a metaphysical map of the evolution of consciousness and records how spiritual time flows--providing a new science of time. Clow’s book, The Alchemy of Nine Dimensions: The 2011/2012 Prophecies and Nine Dimension of Consciousness, supports the above theory and even go further to assert that the beginning of this new era begins not on December 21, 2012--but on October 28,2011--making the time of the great shift in consciousness just around the corner.
Will it happen with a big bang or go unnoticed?, We just don't know. There are so many unanswered questions about the great shift in consciousness. Nevertheless, I know that fear and anxiety will just make any situation worse. This is the time to demonstrate strength and faith in a Higher Power. Besides, soon we will know what October 28, 2011 holds for us.
