We are finally in December and the 21st is not too far away. So what can we expect of this most anticipated tryst with our collective human destiny? Is this the end or simply the beginning? Chitra Jha explores
I first heard about the date 21/12/2012, magical to some and ominous to some others, in 2001. Since then I have awaited it with a great deal of anticipation. Now that it is almost round the corner, I cannot help but feel the excitement in my bones. But before I get into that, I would like to take you back to the turn of the millennium when 2012 first began to create waves. People started talking about the Mayans – a civilization centered in Central America around Guatemala from the third to the 10th century – and their calendars, especially the long count calendar, which suddenly ends on December 21, 2012.
The galactic realignment, due to happen on 21.12. 12,
is likely to raise collective human consciousness,
according to the spiritual community. Over the last 12 years, the ‘resurfaced’ information has created a huge amount of controversial discussion on why the Mayan calendar ended on that particular date. People at large have been wondering what destiny has in store for that day. Is it the end of the world? Will we all be killed? Will there be great cataclysms? Is this a time of great spiritual advancement? Will we suddenly become more enlightened and have more information? Will we suddenly feel that we are much more a part of God? If so, where is the evidence? There have been many opinions, many views, and many beliefs about what is happening, what needs to happen, what may happen, and what is appropriate. Movies made on this subject have fostered a great deal of fear. To a common person the information overload seems confusing, contradictory, and argumentative.
In this article, I have made an attempt to summarize all that has been said, and is being said, about 21/12/12, in a succinct manner to bring in some clarity about what exactly is happening, how it is affecting us, and what we must do about it.
As I tune into the subject, I hear three distinct voices. First, there is the voice of the scientific community. By and large, scientists and astrophysicists agree that 21/12/12 represents an extremely close conjunction of the winter solstice sun with the crossing point of the Galactic Equator, the equator of the Milky Way galaxy. This crossing is supposed to take place at exactly 11:11 AM (GMT) on 21/12/12. This is when planet earth’s axis will align, through the sun, to the center of the Galaxy. The astrophysicists say that while this galactic alignment is in progress, the sun too is shifting its poles. Scientific journals report an unprecedented increase in solar flare activity; and based on their scientific data, predict more of it in the coming months.
How does this movement of the stars, galactic alignment, and solar activity, affect life on earth or earth itself? Common sense dictates that since our beloved planet will continue to revolve around the sun, while the sun’s path crosses with the Galactic Equator, it cannot hope to escape the influence or effects, whatever they may be. The sun is the core of our solar system. When it sends out magnetic solar winds, which blow against the magnetic field of our planet, changes are bound to occur.
The movement towards the alignment and the alignment itself is exposing, and will further expose, the earth and all other planets in our solar system, to an increased dosage of radiation and gravitational pull. This, in combination with solar flares and solar storms, will cause an increase in temperature, earthquakes, tsunamis, droughts, heavy rainfall, and unseasonable snowfall.
All this is not mere assumption any more. As we look back on the past 10 years, and especially the past 10 months, we cannot deny that the earth has been experiencing major earthquakes, tsunamis, storms, exceptionally heavy rainfall, snowfall, and droughts. There have also been major power-grid and communication disruptions.
However, not all scientists agree with such predictions and explanations. There are some who say that as far as physics is concerned, nothing is going to happen on 21/12/12. The earth is going to cross the equatorial plane on that day but that happens twice a year, every year, so there is nothing new about it. Solar activity or shifting of solar poles is not new either. What is new is the media hype, which is making the public more aware of the phenomenon.
One physicist I know, and who does not wish to be named, is emphatic that neither the sun nor the earth are going to cross the galactic plane any time in the near future. He says, “Such hoopla had happened around the turn of the millennium as well but when nothing happened, they extended the date to 2012. When nothing happens, they may extend the date to 2030 or whatever.” (His words seem almost prophetic and inspired, as the date coincides with ‘completion of the shift’ as reported by some other sources.)
However, irrespective of a few discordant notes, there is a general agreement between the scientists and the spiritual community alike – and that by itself is new – that the phenomenon of Galactic Alignment is a natural, cyclical event, which happens after approximately 26,000 earth years. In fact, most of the fear being generated is rooted in recorded or speculated history, which says that in the past such alignments have caused great devastation, including annihilation of life on earth.
The second voice I hear is that of the ‘aam janta,’ who are highly influenced by the media hype. Until some time ago, they were echoing ‘doomsday’ stories, but now that 2012 is almost ending, they have decided that nothing is going to happen on December 21. In fact, some conclude cynically: “Nothing is going to happen on that day – another day will pass smoothly – but every TV channel will try to raise its TRP by spreading false rumors.” I find this widespread scepticism aimed at the popular media refreshingly new.
The spiritual community
However, the loudest and most sustained voice is that of the third group – the spiritual community which is confident that the whole process of Galactic Alignment will end an old energy cycle and begin a new one. Members speak with utmost conviction when they say, “The movement of the solar system around the central sun is changing our sun’s attributes and affecting our DNA, which is being enhanced. The world is not going to end on December 21. That date is a milestone, a marker, so to say. We shall pass the marker and real work will begin after that. Peace and prosperity will prevail on earth. There will be an evolution in consciousness to a higher level. The planetary positions tell us that the day of enlightenment will dawn on December 21, 2012.”
This kind of confident talk originates in the increasingly common phenomenon of ‘channeling’ which refers to contact with the spirit world. Most of the information about 21/12/12 and beyond is coming from various modern-day mystics, who channel messages of wisdom from the masters residing in heavenly realms.
One such entity being channeled by an American audio-engineer, Lee Carroll, for the past 22 years (and the one I have been following very closely), is named Kryon. Kryon has been completely focused upon the ‘shift of the ages,’ and most of what s/he has been saying has proven true over the years. (Visit www.kryon.com for more information). According to Kryon, the whole process of galactic alignment takes approximately 36 years and carries within it a potential for profound change. This process began about 18 years ago. It will be completed in the next 18 years, by 2030. 21/12/12 is its center-point, the mid-mark.
Even though not all spiritual folk are unanimous with the 36-year window that Kryon speaks about, there is a common consensus on many other points, such as:
•The Dark Age is ending and the Golden Age of Light is coming in its place on 21/12/12, through a known and expected cycle, but since we have not gone through this cycle in the modern times, we do not understand it, yet.
•A whole lot of preparatory work has been going on since eons to manifest this moment into reality. Our bodies have been preparing for this event. Every soul is aware of this event, and is prompting the ego self to open up to the energies of 21/12/12.
•As human consciousness is changing, the magnetic force around earth is changing and vice-verse. However, it is not happening randomly. It is happening through an intelligent design. It is literally touching the DNA field of each human being, and changing the information within the DNA.
•Energies of transformation are being downloaded into each one of us. We are re-awakening to our own mastery. •We have been playing our earth-roles with such commitment and passion that we have forgotten that it is all but a game of life. Now we are waking up from that game. Through this game much has been learnt; the main lesson being ‘love is all there is.’
•This is the time of the movement of energy. The kundalini of the planet is moving. This is a period of magnificent change for planet earth. Every particle is being changed and transformed. There is a greater awareness even in the rocks and the soil. The density is being released and more light is entering into everything.
•The change is a gift. There is nothing to fear. It is a time for celebration all over the universe. This day, and what it stands for, deserves respect.
While that is the general talk, some channels are more specific about this ‘special’ period of time. Carolyn Evers and Richard Presser are two such modern prophets from Australia, who specialize in 2012 phenomenon (for more information visit www.the2012countdown.com). It is interesting how they explain the Hindu philosophy connected with this event, “There is a cycle within creation called the cycle of Brahma, which is understood and expressed by Hindus as the in-breath and out-breath of God. So far, we have been experiencing the out-breath of Brahma. On 21/12/12, the in-breath will begin. The expansion within the cosmos will end and all that has been expressed outwards will begin the return journey to the center. This is a journey of celebration, as all sentient beings begin to fold back into the oneness of creation. As the in-breath begins, everything physical will be transformed in a moment. It is the moment of the flowering of the consciousness. The DNA will open like a flower. We cannot even imagine the beauty, wonder, truth, and power of that flowering.”
Lauren C. Gorgo, another inter-dimensional telepathy who channels the energies of the Pleadian High Council emphasizes that we will be shedding our chrysalis on 21/12/12, and this point was chosen even before the galaxy was created. She comments, “The galactic planning cycles are long and planning is thorough. Nothing is left to chance. The Mayans carried the knowledge of these cycles. They understood the movements of the planets and stars in the cosmos, the gearwheels that unfold and dictate the unfolding of consciousness. However, it is not one event that will topple things over. The shift will take place on micro and macro level, in a chain of events that will restructure major parts of our society. Like most things, we will probably notice them in retrospect.”
Indian spirit speak
Our own homegrown channels are equally charged up about 21/12/12. Mumbai-based Aarti Bhasin has recently joined this bandwagon. The gist of her channeled messages is, “A polarity shift is happening between the male and female energy of the planet. This has nothing to do with men and women but with feminine and masculine consciousness, which resides in both the sexes. In the consciousness shift, these are the specific energies that are beginning to change. The current energy shift is about the energies of balance. It means that the males of the planet are becoming more balanced, just as the females of the planet are becoming more balanced. Unknown to us, very slowly, a softening is taking place, moving the energy from the masculine to the wise Divine Feminine, balancing what was imbalanced. This balance will become more obvious after 21/12.”
Another young budding channeler, Akshai Sthalekar, from Pune, connects with the other realm as often as every day. He emphasizes that a war between the good and the evil is on, and the shift is going to be hell for negativity, and heaven for positively.
|“Liberation and enlightenment are not for some special chosen ones in some distant future, but indeed a very part of our beings in the consciousness of 2012.” |
He adds, “Nevertheless, it will not suddenly happen on 21/12/12, not immediately, not at 11.11 am, as some are predicting. It is already happening. It is happening so slowly that some of us fail to even notice it, but it is there.”
Divyaa Kummar, a person I greatly admire, is a seasoned aspirant with deep insights. She smiles when asked about 21/12/12 and says, “The shift does not happen by the clock. It is a continuous process. However, yes, humanity has seemingly gone past the hundredth human humming ‘don’t worry, be happy.’ Look at your own symptoms of an expanded consciousness. Do you suddenly feel a sense of all is well with my world and me? Do you find a lack of interest in conflict? Do you find yourself unable to blame, judge, and condemn quite as much? Has brooding on some nebulous past, given way to looking ahead at exciting possibilities? Are you having sudden feelings of connection – with love meaning more than your relationship with your lover, child, or dog? This is the 2012 consciousness. The more you tap into it, the more tangibly it will become yours.”
Predictions coming true
I took Divyaa’s lead and asked these questions to people around me. And the response was stupendous. Most of my family and friends said that they had indeed changed in the past few years, and are changing rapidly now. The comments go like so: “I have become different in the past 10 years.” “I am more committed to the manifestation of what I need in my life. And I feel that the universe is listening to me.”
|“So far, less than one per cent of the human race has chosen to shift, along with Gaia.” |
– Ellaeenah Niloufer
“I like to celebrate the new energy of compassion and the more I celebrate, the better things get in my life.” “This new energy is about living your life in health and happiness, without any drama or fears. This is the new potential.” Evidently, many have already internalized 21/12/12 energies.
Divyaa laughs and says, “Liberation and enlightenment are not something out there for some special chosen ones in some distant future, but indeed a very part of our beings in the consciousness of 2012.” She adds, “21/12/12 can best be understood through the symbol of the ‘serpent eating its own tail’, for it shows the full circle; how the end, the middle, and all stages of any experience within consciousness are always encoded in its beginning and visible for those who choose to see. It is only a marker that is referring to a far vaster process, which began long before and will continue long after.” Divyaa’s words make me wonder how many people on earth are consciously aware of this all-important process. The answer comes from another wonderful channel, Mumbai-based Ellaeenah Niloufer. On Sept 22, Master Sananda and Intergalactic Council spoke through her, “So far, less than one per cent of the human race has chosen to shift, along with Gaia.” So, what will happen to those who have not chosen to shift? The Masters answer, “That is not for you to question or judge. Everyone is free to choose their own path.” How to be prepared
Is there something we can do to prepare ourselves for this shift? Well, the moment you ask such a question, you are bound to be inundated with advice. Here is a list, compiled from all the advice I got, when I asked that question:
•Come to terms with your past. Let go of past hurts, and move on. Greet new times with a clean slate.
•Be in love with yourself. Love yourself more. Make love the platform for understanding the new world order. Breathe in love; breathe out love. Live from a love base.
•Carry a higher consciousness into your workplace and at home. Show through your actions what you know through your wisdom.
•Be slow to anger and quick to forgive. Be non-judg mental. Do not get involved in the drama.
•Create a bubble of peace around you.
•Keep your spiritual insights in sight.
•Do not make choices in haste or desperation.
•Meditate as often and for as long as you can.
•Do not resist the changes.
•Do your duty in faith and devotion.
•Make up with people you need to.
•Let go of outdated relationships, habits, and states of mind.
•Do not engage in debates about the new energy.
•Refuse to fall into negativity or fear. Release fears that are holding you back. Over-ride thoughts of fear with those of love.
•Eat light foods, and avoid dense foods. Eat minimum quantity of quality foods.
•Remember all is perfect and well.
•Do not worry or raise an alarm.
•Genuinely work to cleanse yourself, and heal your environment. Enjoy cleansing and clearing.
•Live in complete awareness.
•Do not accept, live, or spread lower life conditions.
•Get out of the survival mode.
•Do not react.
•Look at each other differently.
•Plant the seeds of understanding, peacefulness, appreciation, and love.
•Look at all the possibilities in every situation and work to make them a reality.
•Enjoy the shift and make the most of it.
•What will happen if we follow all this well-meaning, oft-heard, but difficult-to-implement advice? Astrologer Col. Sunil Midha says, “If you follow this advice, your energies will get re-aligned to the vibrations of the new earth. When we turn inwards and begin to deal with ourselves, the new earth becomes a distinct possibility.” What is this new earth all about? What are the potentials for it after 21/12/12? This question evoked enthusiastic responses from those who can look into the future. Some of the potentials are:
•Within the next 20 years, the current youngsters will become leaders in all fields. They will solve unsolvable puzzles. New technology will be discovered that we cannot even dream about. New science will erupt with solutions to all our problems. New paradigms of business will follow new inventions.
•There will come a time when there will not be any terrorism. Some imbalance will remain, that comes with life, but countries will not go to war against each other. There will be real peace on earth.
•As the energy of earth changes, more revelations will be made from the soul memory or akashic records. Our akash will begin to reveal what it knows – that is how new discoveries will be made known. This knowledge will be released to us little by little.
•The new energy will manifest itself in the way governments will be eliminated and reformed. Old energy regimes will change. The heads of the government will start thinking differently.
•Societies that have been a certain way for thousands of years will change. Within the next two generations, co-operation and unity will become the norm. At that time people will look back to 2012 and say, ‘People were barbarians at that time.’
•The planet will heal. There will be no disease. Clean water will not be an issue. All homes will have inexpensive electricity.
•Science will discover that there is an intelligent design in the universe and there is no randomness in what looks to be random. Our lives are not random. There is a system here and it can be directed, programmed, and re-programmed.
•Slowly the financial wizards will start thinking differently. Financial systems will clean out the greed.
•All fear and greed-based systems will change. It may take two generations before we get to see this but things are being put together. There will be a new way of banking, a new way of health care, and a new way of insurance.
•The physical body will change but most of these changes will be internal, except for rejuvenation, which can be seen externally.
•There will be more light, more consciousness, more capability for both matter and humanity, animals, birds, and plants. True flowering of consciousness will bring fruit.
•Quantum instinct will become common. If something is learnt by one human being, it will be learnt by all.
The 2011 tsunami in Japan: natural disasters are par to the course •When the media realizes that people’s watching habits are changing, there will be a ‘good news’ channel.
•The organised religions will change, even though the basic doctrines will remain the same. There will be a realignment of spiritual systems. We will see options which are not there right now.
•A dispensation of wisdom will occur on the planet. The appropriateness of all things will be revealed. There will be an increase in intuitive and psychic ability.
All this may sound too good to be true and people may dismiss it as a Pollyanna prediction (the unconscious bias towards the positive). Will the old energy give way so easily and so soon? Does it seem likely? New York-based past-life therapist Durrat Saifee gives the answer, “The old energy dies hard and slow; it screams, kicks, and struggles, to keep what it has had. Right now, it is struggling with its own demise. We are exhausting the negativity by allowing it to come to the surface, by experiencing and expressing it. There are people who continue to pull us backwards by creating drama, war, and fear. They may be the loudest but they are not in the majority any more. Old issues will be brought to the fore. Some of these issues may be political, some economic, some relational, and some may be health issues. Some will even get worse, before they get better. But when we know what exactly is happening, we will not fear them any more. This is the opportunity that 21/12 is bringing to us. Fear of survival makes us react. Once we drop this fear, there will be no more reaction. However, many may have to die in order to be reborn into the new energy.”
As I mull over all that I hear and read, my insights tell me that we need not worry, as we are being helped through this shift. This help may come from divine helpers, or from new people coming into our life, or from old relations, which are being renewed; but come it will! And as we, the new humans, face the new world, there will be some teething trouble. That is what we need to be prepared for.
Does it mean that there will be some catastrophic events? Master Marcansa from Xeon channeled by Aarti Bhasin, answers most diplomatically, “We are not saying that there will be a catastrophe, nor are we denying such an eventuality. All we are saying is that earth is not coming to an end on 21/12/12. It is simply starting afresh. It is not time to pack your bags; it is time to re-arrange your wardrobes.”
Since I love re-arranging my wardrobe, having had years of practice as an army wife, I am looking forward to 21/12/12. How about you?
