“There’s a lot of contamination: air contamination, water contamination, and earth contamination. The high winds and calamities that we’re having are due to the negligence of what we’re doing here. We don’t need four automobiles in a family. Destruction is coming about due to our negligence and greed and the Maya have it written down as a prophecy."
“One of the predictions concerns how we’re going to have seven days of darkness. When this takes place, a lot of people that don’t have a spiritual basis are going to go nuts. I have been assured that this will not be the end of the world. It really means, according to the Maya, that the earth is going to go through a period of gestation and enter into a new period. I saw in a vision that we’re going to have two suns. We need to get ready."
“We all need to cultivate a strong connection with spirit, with God. I’ve explained what I feel my God is, but we all have different opinions and feelings about God. You need to have such passion and devotion to God that you can surrender totally. Without that kind of commitment, you can’t be a healing presence in the world.”

What will happen in 2012 – or, in the Mayan calendar, 18.104.22.168.0? The question has been
the subject of many books and one blockbuster movie. No-one seems to know, but
there is ample speculation: from the return of Zecharia Sitchin’s aliens from the
theoretical twelfth planet in our solar system to global annihilation, everyone seems
to have an opinion as to what 2012 is about. It might therefore come as a surprise
that for the Mayan civilisation itself – those who worked the date of December 21, 2012
into their mythology – it was no mystery at all! The Mayan prophecy to do with 2012 was
that it would signal the return of “The Nine”.
“The Nine” are mentioned in an inscription on Monument 6 of the Mayan site of
Tortuguero, in the Mexican state of Tabasco. The monument was erected in 669 AD
and is one of the very few pre-Conquest sources that mention 2012. Various translations
or partial translations of the inscription exist. This is the most common one: “At the next creation,
the Bolon Yokte Ku, or Nine Support Gods, will return.” However, the actual word
“return”, sometimes translated as “descent”, is not intact on the monument. Still,
it is a safe conclusion to make that the missing word is return. Why? Because other
Mayan sources reference the return of these deities at the ending of each baktun.
Hence, they are expected to emanate on Earth in 2012 too.
Who are the Bolon Yokte Ku – The Nine? They have variously been translated
as the God of Nine Strides, the Nine-Footed God, Jaguar-Foot-Tree and Nine-Dog-Tree.
They were seen as living in the Underworld and were generally described as god(s) of
conflict, warfare, and are hence linked with dangerous transition times, social unrest,
eclipses, and natural disasters like earthquakes. It is said that at the end of a baktun,
they would abandon their underworld realm and rise to the Earth’s surface, where they would do battle with the 13 deities of Heaven.
To further identify what the Nine Support Gods are supposed to be, we need to
consult other sources, in this case, anthropological ones. Such evidence makes it
clear that the Nine Gods appeared during ceremonies that were held at the end of
each baktun, the last of which occurred in 1618 AD.
The ceremonial of the baktun is described in chapter 29 of the The Book of Chilam
Balam de Chumayel, a Mayan chronicle. It provides a detailed description of the
ceremonies that were performed in Merida in 1618 AD, at the end of 22.214.171.124.0.
In total, there are twenty acts, each representing one of the twenty katuns that
make up a baktun-cycle. After some initial preparations, in act 2, the bee god tied
the masks of the 13 gods of Heaven to those people who were going to perform
in the ceremonies. The actual baktun cycle was ended in act 3, whereby the Nine
Gods fought, conquered and sacrificed these 13 Gods. Night had conquered day.
The subsequent acts involved rituals to do with the election of the new officials for
the new period, while in act 12, the Nine Gods sacrifice the Seven Pacers and count
the mats, which is an initial line-up of the candidates for investiture for the coming
era. In act 13, the 4 yearbearers reappear, in the guise of the four death gods. Most
importantly, in act 15, the Nine Gods announce the fate of the new era. This fate was
largely the will of the gods, which the community had to achieve during the new era.
In short, the baktun ceremony was therefore a series of rituals, focusing on the Nine
Gods and their emanation and rulings. However, these extraordinary rituals have seldom
been understood for what they are: part and parcel of the 2012 phenomenon.
The question nevertheless remains as to who these Nine Gods truly are. Indeed,
“Nine Gods” are not just an ingredient of the Mayan culture. There were also Nine
Gods in the ancient Egyptian religion, as well as many others (e.g. India). To the
Egyptians, they were also known as the Nine Principles and they were directly linked
with their Creator Deity, Atum.
Control over these Nine Principles was deemed to be instrumental in the successful
rule of a Pharaoh: proper control over them meant that balance – linked with the deity
Ma’at – was maintained and all was well with Egypt, the world and the universe.
We can therefore see that The Nine in an Egyptian or Mayan setting, were closely
related; in both instances, they determined the ruling of an era, whereby their
consultation was of extreme importance to the success of the nation.
So are we waiting for their return in 2012? If so, what are we meant to expect?
Interestingly, since the 1950s, decades before the 2012 phenomenon rose to
prominence, there has been a select number of people that have been speaking
about a “Return of the Nine”. For some, this is the return of nine extra-terrestrial
beings, for others this is the return of the Egyptian Nine Gods. Some even link The
Nine with the nine founding members of the Knights Templar order – a concept that,
alas, resulted in a series of mass suicides in France, Switzerland and Canada in the
mid-1990s. However, despite the mass interest in 2012, until now, no-one has drawn
attention to the fact that for decades, people claimed to be contacting The Nine and
the fact that Mayan inscriptions speak of a return of the Nine Gods in these “end times”!
So what are The Nine? A group led by paranormal researcher Dr. Andrija Puharich
that contacted “The Nine” in the early 1950s. They believed they were an alien
intelligence: not necessarily physical, but definitely not terrestrial in the most literal
sense. The nine participants each challenged one entity, which communicated through
them as a collective. Puharich was quite clear that these entities had a connection with
ancient Egypt. In the 1970s, he chanced upon a young Israeli psychic, Uri Geller. During
the many scientific experiments Geller was put through as part as the CIA’s Remote
Viewing experiments, Puharich realised that Geller could contact The Nine, and,
specifically, that whereas in all previous attempts, he had required a panel of nine
people to participate, Geller could channel all nine together.
As Geller’s fame rose, Puharich decided to write a biography of the exploits of
this remarkable psychic. In the book, Puharich mentioned the Nine, but for
reasons that will forever remain obscure, he largely ridiculed The Nine, even
though for several decades before – and after – he would remain obsessed
with them. Equally, whereas previously he had spoken of them as an alien
intelligence, in the book, they had become an extraterrestrial intelligence.
There is a difference…
Geller has always remained silent on what transpired with the Nine, as he was
unconscious throughout the channelling. When in contact with the Nine, they
summoned him to UFO fly-pasts and more. Puharich claimed he made tape
recordings of these sessions, but none have ever been made public, so it truly
is a case of Puharich against the world. If true, then Puharich asked “Are youbehind the UFO sightings that started in the United States when Kenneth Arnold saw nine flying
saucers on June 24, 1947?” to which they answered yes.
Swiss psychologist Carl Jung made a detailed study of UFOs and was convinced
that they were an alien – though not extra-terrestrial – intelligence that was here
to help guide us into a new world, which he identified with the cosmic Age of Aquarius.
According to Puharich, The Nine stated they were from a world called Hoova,
though on occasion, they called themselves Rhombus 4D. They contacted Puharich
and Geller as they had been chosen to prevent war, as well as steering the Earth’s
fate into a specific direction, which the Nine argued was indeed to their own needs
and benefits, though it was also for the benefit of Mankind. Here, we therefore see
clear parallels with the methodology the Nine employed with the Maya, namely their
directing the fate of Mankind. The Nine also claimed that they were responsible for
Geller’s powers and that the way in which Mankind used Geller would determine
whether The Nine’s “programme for Planet Earth” would continue, or not.
Others, like Phyllis Schlemmer, have also contacted “Tom”, who is a spokesperson
for the Nine, with whom Puharich spoke too. Her story made it into Stuart Holroyd’s
“Prelude to the Landing on Planet Earth” and the later “The Only Planet of Choice”.
Other Nine contactees are Don Elkins and Carla Rueckert, who channelled “Ra”, a
member of The Nine, who declared that it was he who had built the Great Pyramid.
In sessions with Puharich, “Tom” said the Sphinx was built and named after him.
Tom adds: “I am the beginning. I am the end.” – wording that could be lifted from
the baktun-ending ceremonies. I would personally not go as far as to argue that
The Nine as per these channellings are who they claim to be. I have done extensive
research into them for more than a decade, and they are, quite simply, a complex
issue that defies easy categorisation. But what can be said about them, is this: it is
clear that each culture, whether Mayan, Egyptian or 20th century Western society,
was and is in contact with an alien intelligence, which each time, relates messages
that are identical in context.
The number nine is prominent in another culture, which is believed to have had
direct links with the Maya: the Hopi of Arizona. They too believe we are approaching
the end of an era, though their doctrine does not stipulate a precise date. Instead,
they argue that for a New Era to be born, a series of nine prophecies need to be
fulfilled. Still, according to Twylah Nitsch, her grandfather Moses Shongo, the last
of the traditional Seneca medicine men who died in ca. 1925, did predict that there
would be a 25 year of purification that would end in ca. 2012. Generally, the Hopi
argue that it is due “soon”, as eight of the nine prophecies linked with it have been
fulfilled. The first “sign” occurred as far back as the 16th century, and involved the arrival
of the “white men with guns”. The eight, incidentally, were the Hippies! The only prophecy
remaining to be fulfilled, is that of the Blue Star Kachina, which is often interpreted as an
alien, and sometimes extra-terrestrial presence that will manifest itself on Earth.
As early as 1948, the Hopi tried to speak at the United Nations General Assembly
about their prophecies for our ending era. They feel that they are the caretakers
for the American continent and felt they needed to share the message of the
necessity for humans to be in balance with nature. Twice, the Hopi elders were
turned away, but they eventually were allowed to speak in 1976 at a United Nations-sponsored
conference in British Columbia.
Like the Maya, the Hopi adhere to a cyclical world view and believe that we
are about to emerge from the Fourth into the Fifth World –out of a total of
seven worlds. Even though the Hopi do not specifically state Nine Gods will
return, they do argue that one specific entity needs to return, which will be the
final sign that the Fourth World has ended. Kachinas are “spirits”, which are visualised
during the Hopi religious dances, very much on par with the masks the participants in
the baktun ending ceremonies wore. In 1914, a song was first sung at the Wuwuchim
ceremony, which marks the start of the ceremonial calendar year in November. The
1914 rendition of the song was the first mention of the imminent “Emergence into the
Fifth World” and stated that this would occur when the Saquasohuh – the Blue Star
Kachina – would dance in the plaza.
The Tortuguero Inscription, mentioning the return of "The Nine"
According to the “Book of the Hopi”, by Frank Waters, Saquasohuh “represents a
blue star, far off and invisible, which will make its appearance soon”. Others have
referenced it as “You will hear of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the Earth,
that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this,
the ceremonies of my people will cease.”
In recent years, there has been intense speculation as to what the Blue Star could be.
Candidates included the appearance of Hale Bopp in 1997, or the supernova of
SN1987A, which occurred on February 23, 1987. The latter was the brightest
supernova observed for four centuries.
It seems, however, that the Hopi prophecy has been ill-understood. Simply
put, the prophecy clearly refers to a future tribal ceremony, at which point a kachina
– a Hopi spirit – known as Blue Star will reveal himself. As such, Blue Star is nothing
more or less than his name, and not necessarily linked to a stellar phenomenon.
He is, however, by all accounts a deity – an alien intelligence that will return.
However, in recent years, the Hopi themselves have seriously clouded the debate
over what is supposed to happen. Some Hopi argue that our current timeframe is
known as the “Great Day of Purification”. Hopi elder Oh Shinnah Fastwolf states this
period will be over by 2011 and that it will be at that moment that the blue star will
appear in the sky. Speaking Wind, the son of a Pueblo shaman from New Mexico,
has said that the Fifth World will start in 2012. He however argues that the final
cleansing of the Earth began in 1998, when in September, the five planets aligned.
He also saw a planetary alignment of nine bodies on May 5, 2000, as very important,
as it was the begin date, until 2012, of how the earth would be purged. “If mankind
will not willingly let go of the illusion, and the lie, it will be stripped away.”
And so, despite details and fringe claims, whenever we turn to the core of a
phenomenon and the core of the 2012 phenomenon, we are confronted with one
key message, one that even archaeologists have uncovered as being at the root of
the Mayan prophecy about 2012: it is about the return of the gods. The Bolon Yokte Ku,
who will signal in a new era. The Time Returns!
Carl Johan Calleman is a professional and accomplished scientist working to elucidate the higher meaning of the Mayan calendar since the 1990s.
Last week I made a presentation at a conference on 2012 organized by the Foundation for the Study of Cycles in Albuquerque. Since this was held at the day of the release of Roland Emmerich’s movie 2012 (intentionally released at a Friday the thirteenth) most of the participants went to its first showing after midnight on the same date and so did I. At that time the movie theatre was full and the audience larger than at the 2012 conference we were in where people were discussing the real story of the Mayan calendar. As one might expect nothing was right in the movie 2012 and, what is also noteworthy, it seems that no effort whatever had been made to get it right either. To begin with it supports the urban legend that the Maya predicted that the world would come to an end. This of course is not true.
The contemporary Maya do not say that and there is no ancient Mayan source that says this. Instead, what the only existing ancient Mayan inscription says is that when the calendar comes to an end then nine cosmic forces will descend and these nine forces is what serious students of the Mayan calendar are interested in. Hence, this is not a movie I would recommend to anyone, but since I am so involved with the topic I felt I had to see it. I should say however that the movie was not as scary as I had expected based for instance on having seen Independence Day that was made by the same director in the nineties. 2012 is simply a standard Hollywood product with the typical ingredients of presidential worship and sentimental family dramas, that does not give anyone a reason to think more deeply about the topic and maybe this is exactly its purpose. It does however present a few observations that seem relevant from a more serious perspective such as the precarious situation of the US dollar and possible demands for a cancellation of debts. Yet, these phenomena do not really seem connected to the Mayan calendar or results of the cosmic plan in this movie.
The Mayan calendar as a serious description of a cosmic plan is of course not even mentioned or that the real end date has to be something other than December 21, 2012. In fact, overall I cannot say that the movie 2012 is on a more silly level than most New Age ideas of an event happening on the particular date December 21, 2012 (pole shift, Nibiru, galactic alignment or solar flares). In reality no such event could ever have been predicted by the ancient Maya, but to many who do not want to think outside of their existing box these have become urban legends that Hollywood is tapping in to and reinforcing. What the ancient Maya would have been able to do however would have been to sense the shifting energies of time in the same way as thousands of people today are rediscovering the daily use of the Sacred calendar and that there is a reality to the shifting energies that it describes. But to highlight this is far from the purpose of the simplistic interpretations of this movie. The 2012 movie seems to primarily have the purpose of distracting people from the ongoing transformation of consciousness and the associated socio-economic transformation. The best way of doing this is to focus on so-called Earth changes that we really have no reason to believe will happen in the years ahead but yet seems to be the line of thinking to which many people have been wired.
A curious result of the movie, and the fact that at least in one form the Mayan calendar goes mainstream, is that academic scientists have become engaged in debunking its validity and so for instance NASA, and some Mayanists, have issued statements that the world will not come to an end in 2012. While I may agree with that conclusion it seems odd to me, to say the least, to think that astronomers or Mayanists, who have never studied the evolution of consciousness would have anything of relevance to say on the matter. To understand the nine levels of evolution described in the ancient description of the end date it is not sufficient to be an expert in any particular academic discipline such as Mayanism. What is required is that you take a holistic approach integrating knowledge from historical and biological evolution in all of its aspects. To understand the big picture of the Mayan calendar you have to be able to see the patterns of evolution of consciousness and there is no way you will do that by directing telescopes to the sun or the center of the galaxy. Hence, while these astronomers may be able to debunk, and rightly so, a galactic alignment (which happen every year and does not mean anything in particular in 2012), Nibiru or a pole shift, they are not even aware that these are misinterpretations of the Mayan calendar to begin with, which is really about the evolution of consciousness.
This shadow boxing where astronomy experts are debunking what the Mayan calendar is not about shows what a strong grip materialism has on people at the current time. The mainstream scientists and the media are simply not letting in the serious research about the Mayan calendar as a consciousness phenomenon and keep emphasizing the date December 21, 2012 to distract people from co-creating a new world. It is so much easier to concoct some simple idea about what will happen in 2012 such as a giant solar flare, a galactic alignment or a magnetic pole shift than to communicate our higher purpose and the necessity for people to participate in the manifestation of the cosmic plan if this is to manifest. This also attests to the difficulty of conveying the existence of a divine plan that operates through quantum shifts in consciousness that are really not directly measurable, but clear from all the effects these have had over billions of years.
It is worrisome that plans are said to be underway by Emmerich to create some kind of a television series on the topic of 2012, since this surely would continue to keep people in the dark about the socioeconomic transformation that is meant to result from the transformation of consciousness. Nonetheless, the very fact that this film was made and some superficial knowledge about the Mayan calendar has reached the mainstream does reflect the fact that people, at least on some level, are becoming aware that this universe has a purpose. Hopefully many will go on to explore this in more serious ways and see that there is indeed hope for humanity if we are willing to co-create it.
Last night I met a priest whose particular expertise is exorcism. I had no idea how big the business was. Apparently the man’s non stop. And he was no joke. Like Chuck Norris if Chuck Norris was a holy man. He certainly looked like he could pick a fight. He had brawlers genes. Thick wrists, thick neck. His right hand was so big it looked like a bunch of bananas. With complete solemnity he told me that possession was in principle extremely rare, and that only by completely losing ones sense of self, ones I am-ness as he put it, could one be taken over by a malignant spirit. And if you were really in bad shape - a consortium of them. Precisely what happened in his last case. Apparently some small timer in prison with big eye lashes and a nice ass had been beaten into becoming a sex slave for a group of white supremacists. They’d burnt a Swastika on one of his butt cheeks and told him that they’d cut off his dick if they ever caught him peeing standing up again. He was a jail whore now. They pimped him out daily for favors, cigarettes and that chocolate mousse they give out at lunch. Within a week he was broken, in a month he was zombified, in two he just started biting off wieners and eating them. And if someone protested he’d just poke out their eyes and eat those too. Then no one touched him. But he was changed, and soon became a man that no one looked at twice. The end was naturally quite gruesome but long story short they had to bring in Chuck. Shut him up in a room with no one else but Chuck. But Chuck didn’t say much about that. He just said that he was once in the service of the dark, and that it almost killed him. Another term for human sacrifice if you ask me. And after all there’s still a market in every major city in the world. Children costing no more than twelve thousand dollars. Monkeys going for little over three. Though that was a surprise to me. The hit, from what I understand, is one that amplifies the power of the morphogenetic field allowing one to manifest with greater power and efficiency. The essence of absorbing someone elses life force. What we do in infinitesimally smaller increments in relationships every day. The flip side of being broken against your will.
