6. I've heard of the Mayan prophecy of 2013. What's supposed to happen?
Good question! According to Mayan calendrics, December 21, 2012 is a critical juncture, indicating the culminating point of the 26,000 year cycle of Homo Sapien evolution. On the winter solstice of 2012, the noonday Sun will exactly conjunct the crossing point of the sun's ecliptic with the galactic equator, while also closely conjuncting the exact the center of the galaxy.
7. Is this the Mayan Calendar?
Mayan Messenger Carlos Barrios shares the Quiche Maya's knowledge of the ending of this cycle by saying, "The world will not end. It will be transformed... Everything will change...Change is accelerating now, and it will continue to accelerate...If the people of the earth can get to this 2012 date in good shape, without having destroyed too much of the Earth, we will rise to a new, higher level. But to get there we must transform enormously powerful forces that seek to block the way...Humanity will continue, but in a different way. Material structures will change. From this we will have the opportunity to be more human...
"Our planet can be renewed or ravaged. Now is the time to awaken and take action...The prophesized changes are going to happen, but our attitude and actions determine how harsh or mild they are. This is a crucially important moment for humanity and for earth. Each person is important. If you have incarnated into this era, you have spiritual work to do balancing the planet...The greatest wisdom is in simplicity. Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It's not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It's encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find you heart, and you will find your way."
As author Moira Timms writes, "It is the Unification and Completion of all natural, cultural, religious, and prophetic time cycles."
Let us reflect on the prophecy of Pacal Votan which declares, "If humanity wishes to save itself from biospheric destruction, it must return to living in natural time." Evolution is being placed before us but it is left to us as we are actually living out the unfolding of this prophecy, right here and now, and for the next 9 years. To "wake up now" is to begin to change everyday consciousness, through simple, pragmatic ways, such as adapting the 13 Moon Calendar.
Perhaps the keener we listen, the more insight we will have of the face of this Shifting World Age. As we awaken to our own, true consciousness, so we come to reflect on the supreme interconnectedness of the future reaching radially into the Now. Let us coordinate together, on inner and outer planes of existence, for the dawning of galactic synchronization!
Simply put NO. Considering that the ancient Maya had more than 17 calendars, and that present day Maya in Guatemala follow a distinct version of this Tzolkin count which is generally called "The Mayan Calendar", it would be inaccurate to say this system is The Mayan calendar. It is true that this calendar is commonly referred to as a "modern Mayan calendar," yet while this 13-Moon Natural Time Calendar does integrate the ancient patterns and codes found in the Mayan Time Science, these mathematics are universal reflections of cosmic order, themselves not Mayan.
Also, this 13-Moon Dreamspell system integrates new knowledge that is not based on the historical Mayan Calendar, and therefore it verges on cultural misrepresentation to confuse this as the Traditional Mayan Calendar. So, technically speaking: no, this is not the Mayan Calendar, but rather, this is synchronized with Mayan calendars, and, as Dr. Jose Arguelles explains about this calendar system,"This prophetic stream is emphatically a galactic revelation of the same base of knowledge that produced the Mayan civilization of ancient Mesoamerica. The new revelatory stream is known as the 'Wizard's Count' or 'reformulated Chilam Balam.'" This 13-Moon Calendar is based on Nature's time science of 13:20 which the ancient Maya were aware of and recorded. Because these energy patterns are universally occurring, they are present as systems of cyclic time keeping and fourth dimensional divinatory oracles.

The revered Classic Maya (435-830 AD) recorded the most extensive and precise calendrical science ever to grace Earth. They tracked the concurrent cycles of all heavenly bodies and calculated dates reaching in to the distant past and the approaching future with astonishing accuracy. Their cosmic time science was so perfect in reflecting universal Laws of Nature, that its patterns correspond to countless other harmonic systems, ranging from Incan and Druidic 13-moon calendars, to the Chinese I-Ching, to the spiral form of the galaxy, to our body's physical architecture of 20 fingers and toes and 13 joints, to our DNA codes!
