The End Of The Mayan Calendar – How Have We Collectively Developed So Far

BarriosDear Friends,
close to the end of the Mayan calendar in 2012 Carlos Barrios, a Guatemalan anthropologist, spiritual guide and member of the World Council of Mayan Elder, spoke up about the meaning and unfolding of the time after “the end of time”. He predicted that in order to collectively manifest the Golden Age of Aquarius we will have to go thru economic and social changes of great impact, and that the earth will change with us.
During the last two month you heard me talking a lot about our new born psychic abilities, and how they enable us for a more profound connection with the earth we are standing on. But where is it we are standing now? Three and a half years of collective awakening process have passed since his messages, and it looks like we are just about in all the collective changes he announced. See for yourself!

Dear Ones, a personal message, New Beginnings will be closed from June 1st till September 4th! In this time I will be posting my articles rather sporadically, expecting to pick up the daily service after that period! If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a Facebook group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!!

This is an except of what Carlos Barrios shared back than:
“We are no longer in the World of the Fourth Sun, but we are not yet in the World of the Fifth Sun. This is the time in-between, the time of transition. As we pass through transition there is a colossal, global convergence of environmental destruction, social chaos, war, and ongoing Earth Changes.”
He continues: “Humanity will continue, but in a different way. Material structures will change. From this we will have the opportunity to be more human. We are living in the most important era of the Mayan calendars and prophecies. All the prophecies of the world, all the traditions are converging now. There is no time for games. The spiritual ideal of this era is action.”

Carlos tells us: “All was predicted by the mathematical cycles of the Mayan calendars. — It will change –everything will change. Mayan Day-keepers view the Dec. 21, 2012 date as a rebirth, the start of the World of the Fifth Sun. It will be the start of a new era resulting from and signified by the solar meridian crossing the galactic equator and the Earth aligning itself with the center of the galaxy. 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 and higher level. But to get there we must transform enormously powerful forces that seek to block the way.”
Carlos tells us: “The economy now is a fiction. The beginning of the destruction of the material world. We have progressed ten years deeper into the transition phase by now, and many of the so-called sources of financial stability are in fact hollow. The banks are weak. This is a delicate moment for them. They could crash globally, if we don’t pay attention. Now, people are paying attention.”images“The North and South Poles are both breaking up. The level of the water in the oceans is going to rise. But at the same time land in the ocean, especially near Cuba, is also going to rise. Carlos tells a story about the most recent Mayan New Year ceremonies in Guatemala. He said that one respected Mam elder, who lives all year in a solitary mountain cave, journeyed to Chichicastenango to speak with the people at the ceremony. The elder delivered a simple, direct message. He called for human beings to come together in support of life and light.”
“Right now each person and group is going his or her own way. The elder of the mountains said there is hope if the people of the light can come together and unite in some way. We live in a world of polarity — day and night, man and woman, positive and negative. Light and darkness need each other. They are a balance.”

Carlos believes the dark side works to block unity through denial and materialism. It also works to destroy those who are working with the light to get the Earth to a higher level. The dark power of the declining Fourth World cannot be destroyed or overpowered. It’s too strong and clear for that, and that is the wrong strategy. The dark can only be transformed when confronted with simplicity and open-heartedness.
This is what leads to unity, a key concept for the World of the Fifth Sun. Carlos said the emerging era of the Fifth Sun will call attention to a much-overlooked element. Whereas the four traditional elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water have dominated various epochs in the past, there will be a fifth element to reckon with in the time of the Fifth Sun — that element is ‘ETHER’.

We need to work together for peace, and balance with the other side. We need to take care of the Earth that feeds and shelters us. We need to put our entire mind and heart into pursuing unity and unity now, to confront the other side and preserve life.”

“We are disturbed — we can’t play anymore. Our planet can be renewed or ravaged. Now is the time to awaken and take action. Everyone is needed. You are not here for no reason. Everyone who is here now has an important purpose. This is a hard but a special time. We have the opportunity for growth, but we must be ready for this moment in history.”
Carlos says: “The prophesied changes are going to happen, but our attitude and actions determine how harsh or mild they are. We need to act, to make changes, and to elect people to represent us who understand and who will take political action to respect the Earth.”11Meditation and spiritual practice are good, but also action. It’s very important to be clear about who you are, and also about your relation to the Earth. Develop yourself according to your own tradition and the call of your heart. But remember to respect differences, and strive for unity. Eat wisely — a lot of food is corrupt in either subtle or gross ways. Pay attention to what you are taking into your body. Learn to preserve food, and to conserve energy. Learn some good breathing techniques, so you have mastery of your breath. Be clear.”
“We live in a world of energy. An important task at this time is to learn to sense or see the energy of everyone and everything — people, plants, animals. This becomes increasingly important as we draw close to the World of the Fifth Sun, for it is associated with the element ‘ether’ — the realm where energy lives and weaves. Go to the sacred places of the Earth to pray for peace, and have respect for the Earth which gives us our food, clothing, and shelter. We need to reactivate the energy of these sacred places. That is our work.”

“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 your heart, and you will find your way.”

A Right To Live – Humanity in Harmony with Mother Earth & the Nature Forces

sasby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
over the last few month we have been invited by the collective awakening energies to build a stronger bond with the forces of the nature kingdom. To evolve in sensitivity to our physical bodies sensory abilities, and make friends with beings from the crystal, the animal and plant kingdom of creation. Such a love connection and elevated oneness feeling naturally brings some questions into focus, about the way we treat nature and the blessings given by mother earth. Questions like, who has a right to life?  Only one species? Do humans have the right to exterminate any species they want to kill? Do we really have to go there?

Today, we are living in the age of the greatest wave of extinctions since the Permian extinction 250 million years ago. There are those who call this situation human “progress”.  There are others, however, that have a different vision, one of harmony and oneness, balance and co-operation with the planets blessings. Around the world many people are coming to see the present world system as a form of suicidal madness. In the article “the Alchemy of Conscious breathing – the golden path of ascension” I shared how in the merging process of spirit coming to life as material beings, the elements are building our physical body. Knowing that, how can we still think we could abuse, consciously harm and depress the forests, the big waters, all types of animals and resources of the planet, without harming the collective of humanity as well??!!

A personal message to all my facebook friends!! FB is limiting the distribution of my posts daily more. If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!! Over time I might not be able to put in the FB time, if it does not lead to what it is about – SPREADING THE WORD ;-)!

The simple truth is – we can’t!! And there are those who started to recognize that and are putting this important spiritual awareness into actions. The Bolivian President, Evo Morales, has released an act of “Laws of the rights of mother earth”. This Act for pacha mama, is intended to recognize the rights of Mother Earth, including also the obligations and duties of society to ensure respect for these rights. We can hope that over time other governments will pick up on the idea, and start protecting the environment from their own greed and wrong doings.70For humanity collectively most important things, confirmed as law are:
~ Respect and defend the rights of Mother Earth. The State and any individual or collective person must respect, protect and guarantee the rights of Mother Earth for the well-being of current and future generations.
Remember: Just as the Native American Code of Ethics teaches us, “we have only borrowed this earth from our children, and each of our decisions should serve the next 7 Generations!!

~ No commercialism. Neither living systems nor processes that sustain them may be commercialized, nor serve anyone’s private property.
This is super important as in more and more places of the world, the rich and famous have neglected the international right of excess to the water bodies of the world, have created private beaches and limited the possibility for the locals in need, to be nourished by the water powers.

~The right to preserve the functionality of the water cycle, its existence in the quantity and quality needed to sustain living systems, and its protection from pollution for the reproduction of the life of Mother Earth and all its components.
This is huge!! If this law is properly enforced, it means that big concerns like Nestle and Coca Cola don’t have a chance to come in, by land all over the place and than cut of water sources for the indigenous communities, that have lived there since generations.

~ Multiculturalism. The exercise of the rights of Mother Earth requires the recognition, recovery, respect, protection, and dialogue of the diversity of feelings, values, knowledge, skills, practices, transcendence, transformation, science, technology and standards, of all the cultures of the world who seek to live in harmony with nature.
This one I love with all my heart, as what they are literately describing is the manifestation off the Golden Age of Aquarius. When all nations and private people come together in order to share their abilities and gifts, knowledge and technologies how to care properly for the earth, a Golden Time for this planet is possible!

Take a moment to contemplate and don’t forget, last month I shared with you a set of four songs and one prayer, that help us develop and cultivate a deep inner relationship with the element water, the element air, the element earth, the element fire and the element ether (the all uniting spirit of the universe), if you have not started using this connections for your daily life jet, “it is never to late to make the first step”!!von naDear Ones, I hope you feel the loving embrace of earth, the storming winds, the floating waters and the passionate fire of life deep within your being. I hope they allow you profound insides into your own human nature and the oneness we truly live on planet earth. May all your attempts to bring more awareness and clarity into this world be blessed with rich success, and may you find a home in the true nature of your all uniting loving heart.
Blessings and naturally flowing Love!
Edith

LAW OF MOTHER EARTH THE RIGHTS OF OUR PLANET A VISION FROM BOLIVIA

Who has a right to life?  Only one species?  Do humans have the right to exterminate any species they want to kill?Today, we are living in the age of the greatest wave of extinctions since the Permian extinction 250 million years ago.
There are those who call this “progress”.  There are others, however, that have a different vision.
Around the world many people are coming to see the present world system as a form of suicidal madness.
In Bolivia there is a government that has a creative vision of life, a vision that goes back to original views of life from ancient times.
Evo Morales, the President of Bolivia, is a controversial person.  We don’t agree with all he says.
However we believe that his vision of the value of life, all life, has merit. 
We believe that we cannot survive on this planet if we fail to see that human life cannot exist outside of nature.
This Bolivian law is a creative vision to put into law a system that preserves the biological foundations of life. 
We don’t endorse all aspects of this law but we do see it as a revolutionary step forward in terms of global thinking
