Mayan Calendar – A tribute to Mayan Elder & “Timekeeper” Hunbatz Men
Posted 12:12:12 (Dec 12, 2012) 12:12 am (central)
On December 2nd, 2012, I was invited to attend a special ceremony along with several of my close friends in Florence, Alabama. At the time, I didn’t know exactly what the ceremony involved or whom was speaking since I made the decision to go based on a feeling rather than a logical choice the day before. All that I knew for sure was that I had to travel with some of my friends to Florence so that we were at a certain church by 09:15 that Sunday morning so everyone could ride to an “Indian Mound” that was located a few miles across town.
Once we arrived at the “Indian Mound”, I was totally flabbergasted when I looked out of my vehicle window and saw a huge mound of dirt with trees growing out of the top and sides of the hill. It was over 4 stories high and hundreds of feet wide at the base. I was expecting a small grassy knoll compared to this odd creation of a mammoth structure. It was siting right in the center of an industrial park with several businesses encircling the mound which was gated and I would have not expected to see such a sacred landmark right in the middle of town. I was not even aware that a prehistoric mound even existed a little more than an hour away from where I lived that was built between 100 B.C. and 400 A.D.!
A marker reads:
(Probably Built Between 100 B.C and 400 A.D.)
Inscription. This is the highest domiciliary mound in the Tennessee Valley. It was probably built between 100 B.C. and 400 A.D. by a prehistoric people of the ancient Woodland Culture. Such mounds served as bases for ceremonial temples or chief’s houses. This mound, originally encircled by an earthen wall, contains no burials. It is 43 feet in height. Its base measurements are 310 feet by 230 feet. Its flat top measures 145 feet by 90 feet. Evidence indicates that nearby there were two smaller mounds, villages and cultivated fields.
After everyone climbed the 70 or more steps that seemed to go on forever, we reached the top only to be greeted by someone that smudged everyone going into the sacred ceremony and a special liquid was poured into our hands to cleanse our aura. I then saw a man dressed in white walking around a quilt with numerous ritual artifacts like feathers, bowls, crystal skulls, musical instruments made from a turtle shell and bottles that contained golden liquids. We were instructed not to take photographs during the ceremony so I could not show you a lot of the special things that happened but I will tell you about a few of them…
After we congregated into a large circle, I wanted to face the South side of the mound since I would be facing the sun and positioned my body with the North being behind me. The sun has always held a significant place in my Spiritual understanding of the Indian, as-well-as the Aztec/Mayan cultures so I wanted to make sure that I was facing it. Even though it was overcast and cool, the sun would occasionally peek around the clouds and welcome us with its rays of light.
While everyone was getting comfortable playing musical instruments or chanting, I watched this man walk around in the center of the circle talking to himself or swinging a red headband near the ground. At one point I saw him dangle the headband over a single yellow dandelion flower that was encircled with 4 crystals. As I looked around the top of the mound I didn’t see another flower or plant growing anywhere and I wondered why he was talking or chanting to this particular flower but I knew that it meant something to him. It was shortly after this point that the ceremony was to begin but I didn’t see anyone else notice the activity with the flower other than the people next to me since we were asking ourselves about the significance of the wild flowers meaning?
Once the man started talking we focused on his words as he described the connection that each of us had to the heavens and the sun, how our world has lost the sacred knowledge or understanding that we’re all connected at the source and that this very mound was connected to each of the other sacred mounds around the world on an energy grid and if we wanted to link with any of these magnetic mounds all we needed to do was come to this very spot and meditate. He spoke of the negative energy that permeates our thoughts and how it affects the planet and the Universe in general and how we need to honor our past traditions through respecting nature and the Heavens.
One sentence in general caught my attention when he referred to the Space Brotherhood not allowing us to place “Star Wars” type weapons into space like those that were proposed during the Reagan era and I had to think about what he meant. I wasn’t as concerned about the “Space Brotherhood” statement as much as his mention of a space defense program that had been used to trick the Russians to stand down in their military development, but it was never built after the Russian government collapse in the 80’s. After a few days I did hear about a new program headlined: “A petition on the White House’s “We the People” website calls for the United States to find funding and begin construction on a Star Wars-style Death Star by 2016” (read here), this article came out the very next day after he mentioned it to us. How neat is that?..
Here are a few other messages that he shared with us using his words through other speeches:
“…as humanity awakes to the spirit in all matter, I have absolute hope that we will begin to live and work in a sacred way again. We did not come this far through the burden of time and space to end it in this way. We are here to be victorious. We are here to witness and participate in the great celebration.
“It is funny humanity as a whole feels that we have no impact on this reality. How can we believe so little of ourselves that we feel we are just blowing in the wind, as if by accident, just witnessing or being a victim of this reality. The big issues we face today on Mother Earth are directly related to our lack of self-esteem. Isn’t it funny that clearing up old self-esteem issues could save the Planet! Think about it! We need to realize, honor and respect our creative force and realize we are creators. We hold this reality together. We are the keepers of the Earth. When we truly honor ourselves and our awesome creative power we will again live in a sacred way where we honor all life. When we honor all life the essence/spirit of all living things will manifest.
“Humanity is waking up, and in this important year we are riding the crest of a very big wave. We are living on the edge. We are living between worlds. How we live, the choices we make, the sensitivities we develop, and our love and honor for all life will see us through.”
At some point during the ceremony, a woman began to dance into the circle in what I can only define as a trance, the movements were random since her eyes were shut but you could tell that some unseen hand was guiding her around the center of the mound since she almost stepped on the items resting on the quilt several times, but moved away just as she was about to step on something. As she moved through the middle of the ceremony, I saw her getting closer and closer to the place where the dandelion was perched and sure enough she not only stepped on it, she danced in place pressing the yellow flower into the moist soil including the 4 golf ball sized crystals so that I could not even see anything that was previously there. At that point, another woman stepped forward to lead her back to the edge of the circle out of harms way.
After about 10-15 minutes later I looked over to where the flower used to be and saw something amazing. The flower was standing 4-5 inches above the soil like it had never been touched! I pointed this out to my friends and we couldn’t believe that a fragile flower like a dandelion could have survived the abuse from someone standing on it. We were later told that the yellow flower represented the sun in the ceremony to the Mayan Elder and that’s why he was deliberately working with its energy prior to the other rituals and the four crystal designated the 4 points on the compass. The fact that the flower stood straight up with no apparent damage was a sign that the cycle of the sun is true and sacred no matter what we do as humans to interfere with its life force.
Once the ceremony completed, a few people asked the Mayan Elder questions about his work and he graciously answered our questions and smiled with affection like a father seeing his grandchildren coming to visit after a long wait. We all knew that he was a very special man but some of us didn’t really appreciate how wonderful he was until the next day.
While we were driving home from a fun-filled afternoon visit with our friends, we stopped at a red light on the outskirts of town and noticed 2 white wolves in the back of a pickup truck. They were absolutely amazing and all of us marveled at their majestic beauty while asking ourselves what they represented to us. By Cherokee tradition; A wolf is the animal guide of true Spiritual teachers. Wolves are connected to the moon and feminine energy. They define themselves in relation to other people of their “pack” even a “lone wolf” is defined by his or her distance from the pack. Like any dog totem, A Wolf is loyal to family and people they consider their own.
The sign of two wolves followed exactly what the Mayan Elder told us a few hours before and in the Cherokee tradition, the two wolves represent a native story as follows:
An old Cherokee told his grandson, “My son, there is a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies & ego. The other is Good. It is joy, love, peace, happiness, humility, kindness, empathy, & truth.”
The boy thought about it, and asked, “Grandfather, which wolf wins?” The old man quietly replied, “The one you feed.”.
You see? In our new Mayan calendar, we are faced with the prospect of a time where everything that we think, do, and even wish for will create instant karma or raise the consciousness of the Universe, you won’t see it every time that something occurs but someone else will. So we have the choice of “feeding” the Light or the darkness and if we choose the Light, then our world will heal faster and with less stress and pain for others.
The very next day I had an interesting experience early that morning; I woke up at 5 or so and opened my bedroom window because I was too hot, about 6:07 am I started hearing a strange sound that made me think at first that is was a train or something mechanical. After a few min I noticed that it sounded like a spaceship was hovering over my home and I was not sure that I’ve heard the sound before so I sat up and placed my ear to the window and knew for sure that it was similar to the “whaling” sounds that I’ve heard before, but much louder since I could tell that the sound was getting closer and louder until I acknowledged it…But this sounded more like a street sweeper sitting still out in the street….At the same time I was hearing this sound I was thinking about the Mayan Elder and recounting the days events on Sunday….Once I acknowledged the sound it went away and I laid back down.
After a few minutes I asked what the source of the sound was and I was told that it was Gabriele’s Horn…I didn’t know what that meant so I looked it up on the internet to be sure of its origin:
“Christians of the Catholic traditions refer to Gabriel as Saint Gabriel the Archangel. Islam believes that Gabriel was the medium through whom God revealed the Qur’an to Muhammad, and that he sent a message to most prophets, if not all, revealing their obligations. He is called the chief of the four favored angels and the spirit of truth. In English-speaking culture, the image of Gabriel as the angel that shall blow the trumpet blast that initiates the end of time and the general resurrection at the Last Judgment, which has no source in the Hebrew Bible or the New Testament”.
This day is also 12-3-12 and the significance is amazing now that I’ve looked all of this up that morning, Sunrise was 06:38 and I heard the sound 30 min before sunrise which is significant with the timing, I found on the net the info below:
“Whether you believe something will happen in 2012 or not, is not important… The fact is that the planetary alignment matches layout of Pyramids at Giza on 12.3.12 and this will happen just 18 days before 12.21.12. … 6 plus 6 plus 6 = 18…
Planetary alignment that will take place Dec 3, 2012 is dead-on alignment with the Pyramids at Giza. Night Sky in Giza, Egypt on December 3, 2012, local time … one hour before sunrise compared with the Pyramids at Giza. Image generated by Starry Night Pro (the same view of the planets can be obtained using any other astronomy program, e.g. Stellarium.
The timing of this message is a testament to the message that the Mayan Elder shared with us and now I can tell you who he was. The Mayan Elder was the man chosen to speak on Dec 21st from Chechen Itza to about 2.5 billion people on tv and goes by the name; Hunbatz Men, the “Timekeeper’. How he found his way to the small Alabama city of Florence, I don’t know. But his message and energy electrified those in attendance. I for one did not even know his name until I went home and read the email with the invitation attached. He is considered to be one of the world’s top Mayan Elders and will bring his message of love and renewal on December 21st, 2012 to help us understand the road to vitality and enlightenment.
December 2012 is thought to herald the Return of the Divine Feminine. Since the previous cycle is ending, there is a greater possibility to open larger gateways to our heart and receive the feminine energy which can assist us in bringing new opportunities, new paradigms, and birthing new archetypes.
Very little attention has been paid to the importance of earlier cycles, particularly the end of the Fourth Sun. It is during this period – right now – that we run the greatest risk of large-scale conflicts and natural disasters. The catastrophic side of the prophecy has unfortunately been misinterpreted as an apocalyptic event. It is within our power, however, to prevent anything negative from happening. On one level we may be given the impression of facing the self-destruction of much of humanity by the press, but an ever-increasing number of us are also becoming aware of the damage we have caused to the environment and what we must do to change this through greater cooperation with nature. Understanding the creative forces that ALL of us have and the need to use to use this energy creates more harmony in the Universe!…
The arrival of the new period of 5,200 years beginning on December 21, 2012, will bring future generations their rightful legacy: a return to a state of awareness, control over our lives, and the beginning of truth.
“In Steep Uphill Climb to 2012, Carlos Barrios’ message shares that “…the dark power of the declining Fourth World cannot be destroyed or overpowered… That is the wrong strategy. The dark can only be transformed when confronted with simplicity and open-heartedness. This is what leads to fusion, a key concept for the World of the Fifth Sun.”
The Fifth Sun will call attention to a much-overlooked element called “Ether”. Whereas the four traditional elements of earth, air, fire and water have dominated various messages in the past, there will be a fifth element to reckon with in the time of the Fifth Sun. Ether is a medium. It permeates all space and transmits waves of energy in a wide range of frequencies, from cell phones to human auras. What is “ethereal” is related to the regions beyond earth: the heavens.
We all live in a world of abundant energy. An important message at this time is to learn to sense or see the energy of everyone and everything: people, plants, and animals. This becomes increasingly more 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, but is never destroyed.
In ancient cosmology, ether is understood as the fifth element that filled all space beyond the sphere of the moon, constituting the substance of the stars and planets so now you see the link between the physical realm of earth in relation to other galaxies!
2013 is going to be a very exciting year for most of us and even though we’re all shifting gears Spiritually, it will manifest a lot of joy and Bliss for those that understand its true meaning.
There were a lot of other nice messages that were shared with the attendees, but I don’t have enough space to honor our brother and Mayan “Timekeeper” Hunbatz Men enough and I’m glad that I took one small trip that will move me past this year into an unknown Spiritual Odyssey that I fully embrace and honor more after meeting this special man.
At 11:11 PM, on the night of the 2012 Winter Solstice spectacular, at the exact moment when our Sun and the Earth go into alignment with the center of the galaxy, the Elders, and the Cirque de Soleil performers will present a guided meditation that will unite over two-billion viewers in their hearts and open the space for all of humanity to embrace the unconditionally loving light of the Divine Feminine. The time has come; the ‘Quarantine’ is about to be lifted.
This event, and all of the ceremonies and performances leading up to it, are the manifestation of many dreams, and of a rise in consciousness that will help us to remember who we really are and guide us out of the darkness into the Light regardless of what you were told by the media and press.
