Although our world seems to be coming apart at the seams, this is exactly what the Ancients explained would happen at this precise moment in time. Ancient secret knowledge was destined to be unveiled at this precarious point in our evolution so that we, as humankind, had the tools to resolve the myriad challenges we are now facing and to create a promising future. Einstein stated that “Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.” The knowledge at that level of awareness has been secreted for centuries but is revealed in this presentation so that you can help make a difference for yourself, your family and humankind.

  • 1. 2012: HUMANKINDAT A CROSSROADS A Call to Action Lauren Tratar
  • 2. Undoubtedly, you have heard much about 2012, cataclysm and ‘end times.’ However, the most significant aspect of this story is not yet commonly known: Ancient secret knowledge was destined to beunveiled at a time when Humankind could no longer survive without the Ancient knowledge. That time is now. The release of this knowledge will trigger a transformation of consciousness in our world which will impact almost every aspectof life. Additionally, it will allow us to resolve the myriad challenges we are now facing and create a promising future. Past civilizations went to enormous lengths to alert our civilization to the deeper meaning behind 2012 so that we could utilize this once-in-26,000-year opportunity as it was intended: to move into the next stage of evolution.
  • 3. However, an unsuspecting power seeks to block our progress andderail our efforts: our own resistance to explore what lies outside of our comfort zones. It is my hope that you are ready and willing to explore thisknowledge, for the Ancients tell us that this is a choice each one of us will be called upon to make. To learn how you can make a difference at this unprecedented moment in history, view this presentation and if you deem it credible, pass it forward for we are all in this together.
  • 4. Our mission is to “inspire and empower others to live life as a joyful, magical experience. By simplifying ageless wisdom intopractical tools and techniques, we (An Alliance of Angels) intend to improve the quality of life, alleviate unnecessary pain and simultaneously, recreate our world for the highest good of all!” From my heart to yours, Lauren
  • 6. “Evolution made civilization steward of this planet. One hundred thousand years later, the steward stood before evolution, not healer, but parasite. A gifted society in so many ways, trapped atlast by greed and lack of vision. It ravaged the forests into desert, consumed the soul of the land in mine-pits and waste, smothered its air and its oceans, sterilized the earth with radiation and poisons. A million million chances it had to change, but it would not. From the ground it dug luxury for a few, jobs for the rest, and graves for the children of all. In the end, the children didn’t agree, but the children had come too late. How could a civilization have been so blind?”
  • 7. That, friends, is an excerpt froma novel entitled ‘One’ by Richard Bach. It describes one possible future for mankind — a future some believe to be the most probable future. But I am about to presentcompelling evidence which states that you and I have both the power and responsibility to change that future.
  • 8. Thousands of years ago, numerous civilizations all over thisplanet — not geographically close to one another — took great pains to communicate essential information for those of us living from 1987-2012.
  • 9. They spoke of this 25 year period as amajor milestone in the evolution of mankind – a time when we would have the opportunity to birth the next stage of evolution.
  • 10. However, unlike milestones of the past that occurred subtly andgradually beneath the surface of everyday life...
  • 11. this one is different.
  • 12. To gain admittance into the next stage of evolution we first must pass a test…
  • 13. a test of consciousness.
  • 14. During this era, crises, conflicts, and great upheavals weredestined to occur. As we attempted to resolve these crises using our current methods — predominantly power and force — we would ultimately hit a brick wall for those methods would no longer be effective.
  • 15. At that point, we, as humankind, would stand at a crossroads where we would be called upon to alterthe course we are now on and consciously choose our future.
  • 16. “For millennia, humankind has wandered in darkness… but now there is a change coming. After hurtling blindly through history,mankind has reached a crossroads. This moment was predicted long ago, prophesied by ancient texts, medieval calendars, by the stars themselves. The date was specific, its arrival imminent, andpreceded by a brilliant explosion of knowledge, a flash of clarity to illuminate the darkness and give mankind a final chance to veer away from the abyss and take the path of wisdom. Our destiny is to light this torch of wisdom.” — Dan Brown - The Lost Symbol pg-54
  • 17. “‘Open your eyes,’ they were saying, ‘there is more.’ More depth, height, dimension, perspectives, choices than we have everimagined... Throughout history there were lone individuals here and there, or small bands at the fringes of science or religion, who, based on their own experiences, believed that people might someday transcend narrow ‘normal’ consciousness and reverse thebrutality and alienation of the human condition. They celebrated the freedom found in the larger context and warned of the dangerousblindness of the prevailing view. Long before global war, ecological stress, and nuclear crisis struck, they feared for the future of a people without a context. Although they themselves moved beyond the dominant ideas of their day, they carried few of their contemporaries with them. Most often they were misunderstood, lonely, even ostracized.... Their ideas, however, served as fuel for future generations.” — Marilyn Ferguson The Aquarian Conspiracy pp 45-46
  • 18. What are we opening our eyes to?How might we light this torch of wisdom and create our future?
  • 19. The answers to those questions are contained in this presentation I have divided into 6 sections:
  • 20. SECTION 1 The Ancient Prophecies:The Significance of the Time We Are Now Living
  • 21. SECTION 2 The Bigger Picture:The Process of Evolution and How it Unfolds
  • 22. Section 3The Most Formidable and Unsuspecting Threat Now Facing Humanity
  • 23. Section 4Unveiling the Ancient Mysteries
  • 24. Section 5The Obstacles We Must Remove From our Path Before We Can Progress into the Next Stage of Evolution
  • 25. Section 6What You Can Do at This Critical Moment in History to Ensure a Promising Future
  • 26. “This knowledge is poised to open a new door of understanding andonce the door is cracked, it is only a matter of time before everythingchanges.” — DAN BROWN The Lost Symbol pg-100
  • 27. The information I am about to reveal is going to challenge what you thought you understood about the world and life itself. This will trigger an instinctive response to reject what contradicts what youhave been taught thus creating a barrier to your personal evolution as well as our collective evolution.
  • 28. “Your acquired knowledge, education, and convictions automatically reject new perspectives.” — patricia cori Atlantis Rising -pg 39
  • 29. Why does this happen?
  • 30. From the moment you arrived, you have been “downloaded” with information which has created your belief system. This, in turn, has created your comfort zone, and your mind/ego has the job of guarding that comfort zone. Your ego is programmed toensure your survival, therefore it has built a fortress aroundyour belief system/comfort zonecomplete with soldiers ready to shoot anyone who dares to approach the front gate.
  • 31. “Throughout history, humankind has been resistant to changeand to the acceptance of new ideas. Historical lore is replete with examples. When Galileo discovered the moons of Jupiter, the astronomers of that time refused to accept or even look at these satellites because the existence of these moons conflicted with their accepted beliefs.” — Dr. Brian Weiss Many Lives, Many Masters - pg 10
  • 32. “The brain choosesbetween conflicting views. It represses information that does not fit with itsdominant beliefs. Unless, ofcourse, it can harmonize the ideas into a powerful synthesis.” — Marilyn Ferguson The Aquarian Conspiracy pg 72
  • 33. The purpose of this presentation is to provide you with thatpowerful synthesis which ‘connects the dots’ between the various realms of life, thereby providing a new context from which to understand how life operates at the most fundamental level.Be advised, at this critical juncture in human history you must bewilling to step outside of your comfort zone and contemplate the bigger picture: the human race and our home, Earth.
  • 34. Also, bear in mind that if you are not growing and evolving...
  • 35. You are withering and dying...
  • 36. “Grasshopper, look beyond the game, as you look beneath the surface of the pool to see its depths.” — Master Po
  • 37. “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. Itis the source of all true art and science. He to whom this emotionis a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: His eyes are closed.” — Albert Einstein
  • 38. “Do not believe what you have heard. Do not believe in tradition because it is handed down many generations. Do not believe inanything that has been spoken of many times. Do not believe because the written statements come from some old sage. Do not believe in conjecture. Do not believe in authority or teachers or elders. But after careful observation and analysis, when it agrees with reason and it will benefit one and all, then accept it and live by it.” — The Buddha
  • 39. “To shape your future, you have to be ready and able to change your paradigms.” — Joel Barker Paradigms: The Business of Discovering the Future
  • 40. “The philosophies of one age have become the absurdities of the next,and the foolishness of yesterday will become the wisdom of tomorrow.” — William Osler
  • 41. “There is no absolute knowledge and those who claim it, whether they are scientists or dogmatists, open the door to tragedy. All information is imperfect. We have to treat it with humility.” — JOSEPH BRONOWSKI
  • 42. “A blanket of dogmatic thought is sodeeply seeded in the mass mind that it seems to obliterate almost all curiosity regarding the possibility of anything new.” — patricia cori Atlantis Rising - pg 182
  • 43. Because of this instinctive reaction to resist information which does not currently exist in your belief system, I’m going to askthat you suspend your judgment while you view this presentation and meet me in a place that Rumi, a Sufi poet who lived in the 1200s, spoke of...
  • 44. “There is a placebeyond right and wrong. I will meet you there.” — Rumi
  • 45. I ask that you meet me in a place of neutrality and allow me to present a case for your consideration for I have amassed acompelling body of evidence which supports the thesis I am about to present. After hearing my case, it will then be up to you to weigh this evidence and arrive at a verdict. Fair enough?
  • 46. This presentation includes knowledge from myriad diversesources including that of ‘metaphysical’ origin. For the Ancient wisdom was not to be the only means of providing advanced knowledge to humanity at this critical point in our evolution; off-planetary intelligences were also to contribute.
  • 47. And just in case you are uncomfortable with anything categorized as “Metaphysical,” or that which is beyond the physical,a well-known person whose intellect has passed the test of time stated:
  • 48. “The more Istudy Physics,the more I am drawn toMetaphysics.”— Albert Einstein
  • 49. Each of the sources within this presentation contributes a piece to the puzzle of life which when connected, provides a startlingnew worldview that has the power to change the world as we now know it - just as the Ancients prophesied!However, keep in mind that this presentation is not the ‘be all endall.’ I do not profess to have all the answers. My goal is to inspire you to look further and deeper if your curiosity becomes as piqued as mine.
  • 50. “This information opens the floodgates of a newthinking and has the power to usher in a fundamental shift in the consciousness of man thus changing the course of human development.” — DAN BROWN The Lost Symbol pg 54
  • 51. “This era is the result of a climax of human self-reflectivethought resulting in an exponential change in consciousness in which all becomes revealed and known." — Vladimir Vernadsky
  • 52. Before we go any further I’ve got to ask you a really important question… the same question Morpheus posed to Neo in the movie “The Matrix:”
  • 53. Are you ready for the red pill?
  • 54. Which means:Are you ready to go down the ‘rabbit hole’ and explore what lies beneath the surface of life experience? Because once you learn the secrets, you cannot unlearn them. So if you’re not ready, I recommend that you exit this presentation now.
  • 55. What qualifies me to be the messenger of this information?
  • 56. I have been a life-long student of esoteric wisdom. The ‘dog-eat-dog’ world we live in never made sense to me. I believed that we, as humanity, must have missed something. We must have taken a wrong turn somewhere so I began searching for truth. And the truth I discovered was soincredible, so life-changing, I had to share it with others which impelled me to write my first book:
  • 57. The subtitle of this book is:The Secret to Life Unveiled: Who You Really Are, How Life ReallyOperates, And How to Unleash the Incredible Power Within!In a nutshell, this book is about apremise you may be familiar with:
  • 58. your thoughts create your reality
  • 59. Though many are familiar with this premise, the process of using thought to create life experience can be challenging.The Ancients knew just how challenging it would be and referred to those of us living in this era as: “Those who walk between the worlds.” To make the transition into the “next world” a bit easier I created“Life” as a workbook and guide that takes the power of thought outof the realm of the esoteric and philosophical and into everyday life.
  • 60. After “Life” was released in January of 2001, I began speaking at various book stores and was scheduled to deliver a finallecture in a series I was giving at my local Borders book store on September 11, 2001. But when the horrific attacks occurred on that day, I canceledthat talk, as I, and most everyone else in the country, was reeling over these events. Nonetheless, my phone began to ring.
  • 61. Some attending this lecture series wanted to know if I could shed a deeper light on these tragedies for I was teaching that ‘nothing in life is an accident.’ And I believed I could... While conducting research for “Life,” I had discovered much about the significance of the time we are now living. However, Ibut didn’t include that information because this book had already grown to 632 pages and I had to stop somewhere. But when the tragic events of September 11 occurred, I felt thisinformation was so important it compelled me to write a second book…
  • 62. Today, I have learned so much more about 2012 I felt compelled to share this knowledge in the form of this presentation. I have learned that the events of September 11, 2001 not only had a higher purpose, but signaled the beginning of aconfluence of alarming events meant to awaken humanity to the critical evolutionary juncture we are now in the midst of. The degree of pain we undergo during this period will depend upon just how tenaciously we choose to cling to our outmoded ideas and belief systems.
  • 63. SEPTEMBER 11, 2001:a 9-1-1 emergency call to Humankind
  • 64. Asian TsunamiDECEMBER 2004
  • 65. Hurricane Katrina AUGUST 2005
  • 66. Haitian Earthquake JANUARY 2010
  • 67. Chilean Earthquake FEBRUARY 2010
  • 68. BP Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill MAY 2010
  • 69. APRIL 2010 - Volcanic eruption in Iceland
  • 70. FEBRUARY 2011Earthquake in New Zealand
  • 71. MARCH 2011 JapaneseEarthquake/Tsunamiand Nuclear Threat
  • 72. In addition to these devastating disasters, we are now juggling a host of new overwhelmingly complex issues;most notably the debilitating effects of the economic crisis which is restructuring the very fabric of our society. Our middle class is undergoing a massive exodus into a newly created poverty class perpetrated by the unbridled greed and utter refusal to acknowledge the global consequences of the actions taken by those on Wall Street.
  • 73. Economic CrisisSEPTEMBER 2008
  • 74. More and more people are suffering: unable to find a job, losing their homes to foreclosure, going bankrupt in record numbers, watchingtheir retirement funds diminish before their very eyes. Businesses are failing; banks closing, real estateprices plummeting and ghost towns being created as a result.
  • 75. We are discovering that many in our government have been so threatened by the banking industry and their lobbyists, those whobankroll their elections, they have been forced to do their bidding as opposed to what our forefathers intended: a government which represents “We, the People.”
  • 76. We are forever engaged in the futility of war and paying its ever- increasing price in terms of money and human life.
  • 77. To make matters worse, the “Doomsday Clock” now stands at 5 minutes before midnight -illuminating even greater threats to life as we now know it. Created in 1947, this clock warns how close we, asHumankind, are to catastrophic destruction — the means by which we can obliterate ourselves, represented by the figurative midnight.
  • 78. Among the group of scientistswho determine the level of threat to humanity are 19 Nobel prize- winning Laureates. Their focus today is on two major means of catastrophe: 1) The threat created by 27,000nuclear weapons — 2,000 of them ready to launch within minutes; 2) Climate change — the destruction of human habitats upon which we depend for survival.
  • 79. “We stand at the brink of a second nuclear age. Not since the first atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasakihas the world faced such perilous choices. North Korea’s recent test of a nuclear weapon, Iran’s nuclear ambitions, a renewedemphasis on the military utility of nuclear weapons, the failure toadequately secure nuclear materials, and the continued presence of 26,000 nuclear weapons in the United States and Russia are symptomatic of the failure to solve the problems posed by the most destructive technology on earth.” — “doomsday” Atomic Scientists
  • 80. "As scientists, we understand the dangers of nuclear weapons and their devastating effects, and we are learning how human activities and technologies are affecting climate systems in ways that mayforever change life on Earth. As citizens of the world, we have a duty to alert the public to the unnecessary risks that we live with everyday, and to the perils we foresee if governments and societies do not take action now to render nuclear weapons obsolete and to prevent further climate change.” — stephen hawking “Doomsday Clock” Scientist
  • 81. "Nuclear weapons still pose the most catastrophic and immediate threat to humanity, but climate change and emerging technologies in the life sciences also have the potential to end civilization as we know it.” — sir martin rees “Doomsday Clock” Scientist
  • 82. “In these dangerous times, scientists have the responsibility to speak truth to power especially if it might provoke actions to reduce threats from the preventable technological dangers currently facing humanity. To do anything else would be negligent.” “Global warming poses a dire threat to human civilization. Through flooding and desertification, climate change threatens the habitats and agricultural resources that societies depend upon for survival. As such, climate change is also likely tocontribute to mass migrations and even to wars over arable land, water and other natural resources.” — Lawrence Krauss Bulletin Member & professor of Physics and Astronomy at Case Western Reserve University
  • 83. And how are the majority of us responding to these monumental issues?
  • 84. We are on “input- overload.” As individuals, we feel powerless to make any kind of meaningful difference so we abdicate our power to those we believe to be morepowerful than us and assign to them the task of “fixing” our world…
  • 85. “Most of humanity are passive reactionaries, moving alongin a very unassertive manner until something upsets the status quo, and only then dealing with the momentary upset in order to reestablish the pace of their daily lives.” — patricia cori Atlantis Rising-pg 182
  • 86. However, at this critical evolutionaryjuncture, responding to these issues by ignoring them may be unwise.
  • 87. For alarming events were destined to continue and intensify until they touched the lives of almost every person on the face of this planet.
  • 88. Why?
  • 89. The Ancients tell us that discomfort, pain, conflict, and struggle have a higher purpose:
  • 90. They are catalysts for evolution…
  • 91. signals to awaken us to the beginning of a new evolutionary cycle.
  • 92. “Crises and conflict serve as a catalyst calling youto transcend the beliefs around you. You must look within and ask if you are ready to be sovereign and claim your power.” — PATRICIA CORI No More Secrets, No More Lies
  • 93. The alarm clock isringing louder and louder with each passing day...
  • 94. So, are you willing to wake-up and begin building a foundation of knowledge and understanding so that we have the tools to resolve the challenges we are now facing? Are you ready to learn how we can create a promising future? If so, let’s begin with the ancient prophecies and learn theimportance of the time we are now living for the Ancients left us the knowledge we need to navigate these challenges with hope and empowerment.
  • 95. Section 1The Ancient Prophecies: The Significance of theTime We are Now Living
  • 96. Some allege that the ancient prophecies are simply myth.However, a common thread runs through these prophecies which makes them difficult to dismiss. Albert Einstein felt the ancient prophecies were actually a source of knowledge.
  • 97. “The Ancients knew something which we seem to have forgotten.” — albert Einstein
  • 98. What is the common thread in the ancient documents?
  • 99. From 1987-2012 mankind would undergo the most radicaltransformation of consciousness ever experienced on this planet.
  • 100. “Prophecy of a coming enlightenment, a transformation of ourhuman minds into their true potentiality, is echoed in virtually every faith, culture, era, philosophical tradition, and in every corner of the world.” — Dan Brown The Lost Symbol pg 408
  • 101. The Ancients spoke of this time as:
  • 102. “The Time of Trial on Earth” “The Shift of the Ages” “The Great Awakening” “The Apocalypse…”
  • 103. which in Greek means: the “lifting of the veil,”the Ancients explain is the veil of incomplete understanding that now pervades life on earth.
  • 104. “This is the time of the GreatInitiation, Global Awakening.All is to be revealed now. The veil is lifting. Apocalypse is upon us.” — Patricia Cori No More Secrets, No More Lies
  • 105. What were the Ancients trying to convey to those of us in the future?
  • 106. Let’s begin with a basis of understanding. Many ancient civilizations were highly evolved and possessed knowledge those of us living today can only understand with the assistance of computers and satellite probes. They built observatories, charted the movement of the stars through theheavens, and discovered that just as a cycle of seasons exists on a planetary level, there is also a cycle of seasons that exists on a cosmic level.
  • 107. The Ancients learned that our solar system orbits the Milky Waygalaxy in an elliptic pattern whose far end carries us to a distant point from its core. This long cosmic cycle occurs every 25,920 years and is called “The Precession of the Equinoxes,” as it relates to the Earth’s wobbling on its axis. The Ancients created a calendar detailing the precession; the movement of the stars during this cycle as they orbit through each house of the zodiac.
  • 108. 2012
  • 109. Mayan expert John Major Jenkins tells us that ancientcivilizations all over the world were aware of this 25,920 year precession.
  • 110. “The Sumerians, Tibetans, Egyptians, Cherokee, Hopi, Maya, Kabbalists, Essenes, Navajo, Apache, Iroquois, Dogons,Greeks, and Aborigines all had knowledge of the 25,920 year Precession and developed calendars based on it.” — John Major Jenkins
  • 111. The Ancient calendars indicate that we are nowapproaching the end of this25,920 year cycle which will culminate at noon on the winter solstice: December 21, 2012.On that heralded day, a rare celestial conjunction in oursolar system will occur: the Earth and sun will align with the equator of our Milky Way galaxy.
  • 112. Because the ‘end time’ of this cycle was so significant, the Ancients attempted to communicate its importance with great intention by whatever means they could think of: stone monuments, pyramids, temples and tombs all over the world, many of which are encoded with precise calendrical computations.
  • 113. Why did the Ancients take such great pains to communicate this knowledge to those living in the future?
  • 114. The end of this cycle has ramifications:
  • 115. As Earth draws nearer to the equator of the Milky Way, the energy at its core affects the energy onEarth triggering geophysical changes in weather patterns, an increase in solar flares, and the magnetic north of Earth shifting a few degrees - events having the potential to cause cataclysm.
  • 116. The Ancients wanted to make sure that we were aware of these potentials so that we would know what to expect and could prepare for these events.
  • 117. Could this Ancient knowledge be accurate?
  • 118. Data derived from oceansediment and core drillingall over our planet confirm that the Earth has indeed undergone cycles of cataclysm which correspond with the cycle dates the Ancients recorded.
  • 119. Paleoclimatic evidence shows that wheneverthis 25,920 year cycle has occurred in the past, it has been accompanied by climate change, mass extinctions and evolutionary change.
  • 120. The Ancients tell us thatspecific events occur during this cycle:
  • 121. 1) The magnetic fields on Earth decline.Fact: Scientists have traced the magnetic fields of Earth since 1837 when Carl Friedrich Gauss invented the first device for measuring the field. Data now shows a ten percent decline in Earths magnetic field —a rate twenty times faster than the natural decline rate would have been if the power sourcecreating the Earths magnetic field had completely stopped. At this rate, the magnetic field could virtually disappear in 2000 years.
  • 122. 2) There is a sharp increase in the sun’s energy reaching Earth. Fact: NASA predicts an unusually powerful “Solar Maximum”sunspot season for 2012 though it may peak as early as late 2011. This intense solar activity occurs roughly every 11 years due to cyclic changes to the Suns magnetic field. Regions on the suncontinue to generate extremely energetic solar flare activity which sends charged particles crashing into the outer fringes of the Earths atmosphere at a high velocity, generating auroras and geomagnetic storms thereby disrupting satellite and other electromagnetic communications.
  • 123. 3) Global temperatures increase.
  • 124. 4) Polar ice sheets melt and collapse.
  • 125. 5) Global sea levels rise.
  • 126. 6) Mass extinctions occur Fact: Scientists agree that we have entered an unprecedentedperiod of mass extinction not seen since the age of the dinosaurs. While estimates vary, extinction is occurring at a pace 100 to 1,000 times greater today than natural extinction with ever- increasing intensity. According to a United Nations report, almost a quarter of the worlds mammals face extinction within 30 years, among them; lions, wild dogs, cheetahs, elephants,gorillas, Siberian tigers, and the black rhinoceros. The UN report has identified more than 11,000 endangered animal and plant species — including more than 1,000 mammals and one in eight bird species.
  • 127. Mass extinctions
  • 128. Is there anything we can do about this?
  • 129. The Ancients say yes, if we open our minds and utilize the “secret wisdom” — information prophesied to be revealed during this era; information I will reveal later in this presentation.
  • 130. Author Gregg Braden explains in “Fractal Time,” that our Universe is composed of cycles within ever-repeating cycles. We are now in the midst of a major “end cycle;” December 21, 2012 marking the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new cycle. Although this end cycle is accompanied by geophysical events, we have the ability to minimize the effects of these events; toinfluence the magnitude of how these events unfold. Braden explains that the cycles ofthe universe are never-ending and with each successive end-cycle, the inevitable geophysical events grow more intense until humanity “wakes up,” passes the tests of consciousness and progresses to the next phase of evolution.
  • 131. “Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” — unknown
  • 132. “There is a universal truth underlying all life: all things areconstantly changing and evolving and the higher reflection of that process is cyclical.” — PATRICIA CORI Atlantis Rising pg 20
  • 133. The prophecies urge us towake-up and seize thisopportunityto evolve sothat we canmitigate the degree of discomfort we experience during this cycle.
  • 134. Could theancient myths be true?
  • 135. Similar stories appear in many cultures around the world which speak of past civilizations that experienced global catastrophe and the near extinction of humankind.
  • 136. “There is a remarkable convergence, a uniformity of ancient traditions evident within stories all over the world; a familiar theme of divine warning.”“The same symbolic language is used in ancient traditions andmyths from many widely scattered regions of the world. This is hardly coincidental. These myths mix the familiar theme of catastrophe with the quite separate theme of precession.” — Graham Hancock Fingerprints of the Gods- pg 247
  • 137. Graham Hancock spent years researching evidence left by past civilizations and concluded: “Through myths, the voices of the Ancients speak to us. If we go back far enough, the focus of the great myths is cataclysm.” “All around the world a remarkable uniformity of symbolic motifs recurs: the great flood; thegreat cold, and the great upheaval.” — graham hancock Fingerprints of the Gods-pg 199&222
  • 138. One of the most common stories is that of Noah and the Ark.“More than 500 deluge legends are known around the world; 20 Asiatic, 3 European, 7 African, 46 American, and 10 from Australia and the Pacific. Researcher Dr. Richard Andree concluded that 62 were entirely independent of the Mesopotamian and Hebrew accounts.” pg193“A similar story is told in Vedic India more than 3000 years ago where a wise man named Manu was warned of the comingdeluge. He was sent a large ship and ordered to load it with two of every living species and the seeds of every plant. Just after Manu accomplished these orders, the ocean rose, submerged everything and a new age of the world began.” pg196 “The Biblical deluge marked the end of a world age, and the beginning of a new age: our own.” pg 197 — graham hancock Fingerprints of the Gods
  • 139. If geophysical changes are inevitable, what specific steps do we now need to take?
  • 140. We need to identify the issues and societal structures which no longerserve the highest good and reform these structures. We cannot ‘fix’ an issue by covering it with ‘bandaid’ upon ‘bandaid.’ Rather we must expose the core issue and create anew from that point.
  • 141. The Ancients explained that the issues facingmankind would be illuminated during this end cycle in a process they referred to as “The Purification,”“Cleansing,” or “Intensification.”
  • 142. What creates this intensification?
  • 143. As we approach the equator of the Milky Way, the electromagnetic energy emanating from its core interacts with and accelerates the energy on Earth. This results in an acute polarity between those who seek reform from those who seek to maintain the old ways, thus exposing that which serves the highest good from that which does not. The masks worn by people to veil their hypocrisy are revealed through this process,the higher purpose of which is to illuminate our issues personallyand collectively, so that we can acknowledge them, resolve them, and by doing so, progress to the next stage of evolution.
  • 144. The financial crisis of 2008 exposed the flagrant fraud and crimes committed by those on Wall Street who own our government and control our worlds resources. Silently and tragically over the past 100 years, they have manipulated We, thePeople through lie after lie utilizing their greatest strategy: “divide and conquer.” This enables them to divert our attention from them, the true culprits, to fighting among ourselves on absurd issues. This sham is structured to serve a few at the expense of the majority. It is inherently flawed and requires a complete revision.
  • 145. The manner in which we treat the whole of humanity, especially theweakest members of our civilization, is a litmus test: a test of consciousness.
  • 146. “The measure of a civilization is how it treats its weakest members.” — Gandhi
  • 147. “The test of a civilization is the way that it cares for its helpless members.” — Pearl S. Buck
  • 148. “The moral test of government is how that government treatsthose who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; those who are in the shadows of life; the sick, the needy and the handicapped." — hubert H. Humphrey

  • 151. The Maya spoke of the 25 years preceding 2012 as the“Great Hall of Mirrors,” for we, as Humankind, as well as each of us individually, will be forced to face those mirrors and examine our behavior with ourselves, others and nature.
  • 152. The Maya explain that the cycles of the universe generate theseprocesses so that a civilization can evolve itsunderstanding and fundamental integrity with everything that exists.

  • 155. During this period of Purification, the circumstances of our testof consciousness will be in place and life will resemble a famous excerpt from “A Tale of Two Cities:”
  • 156. “It was the best of times and it was the worst of times; it was the age ofwisdom, it was the age of incredulity; it was the season of light, it was theseason of darkness; it was the spring of hope, it was the darkness ofdespair; we had everything before us,we had nothing before us; we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way…” — Charles Dickens
  • 157. How we respond to these “tests” will be one measure of the level of consciousness our civilization hasattained over the past 25,920 years.
  • 158. To tackle the specific issueswe need to resolve, we mustbegin with a basic question Dr. Phil poses when presented with an issue:“Is what you are currentlydoing working for ‘you’”?“You” being Humankind.
  • 159. We also need to listen to what others are saying; those who are examining and learning from the mistakes, we, in the UnitedStates have made; those who can assess from a distance which structures no longer serve the majority.
  • 160. In a rare interview, CNN’s highly esteemed journalist, Fareed Zecharia,asked Chinese Prime Minister, Wen Jiabao, his view ongoverning. And in myestimation, his reply was very wise.
  • 161. “We had one important thought: that socialism can practicemarket economy. Give full play to the basic role of market forcesin allocating resources under the macro-economic guidance and regulation of the government. Ensure that both the visible hand and the invisible hand are given full play.” Prime Minister Wen Jiabao citied two books, circa 1776, by Adam Smith which inspired him.
  • 162. "The Wealth of Nations:” which addresses the invisible hand of marketforces; and “The Theory of Moral Sentiments:” which deals with social equity and justice, stressing the importance of the regulatory role of government. The prime minister agreed with Smith’s ideas stating: “If most of the wealth in a country is concentrated in the hands of the few, the country can hardly have harmony and stability.”
  • 163. Although the word “socialism” will incite some, at this critical stage we must transcend the rhetoric and work on behalf of the human race. We must recognize that the wealth of our country has indeed shifted dramatically to a few at the expense of the majority. Our representatives must now garner the courage tolook beyond the next election and work for the majority of people, not the corporations and lobbyists.
  • 164. I personally know many people impacted by the Economic crisis: Upstanding citizens, who worked hard all of their lives toestablish a business, buy a home within their means and pay theirtaxes. Those same people are now losing their businesses or jobs, their homes to foreclosure. Their credit scores, the measure of“worthiness” in our society, have plummeted to the degree that it will be years before they will ever be able to get credit again.They have literally been stripped bare and now face an uncertain future, perhaps even homelessness. And how are they being treated by those who perpetrated these conditions? The banksand credit card companies are carrying on as though nothing has happened; for them it is ‘business as usual.’ They are preyingupon these people, raising interest rates, cutting available credit, demanding payment and threatening litigation - to people who did nothing to create the conditions they are now caught up in.
  • 165. How long will average people tolerate not being able to feedtheir families or send their kids tocollege while a wealthy few at the top enjoy conspicuous consumption? Energy always seeks balance; it is a tenet of physics.So this is a wake-up call; a call toaction. The underlying structuresin our society which do not servethe highest good will not change until we, the people, the “silent”majority, speak up and demand it.
  • 166. “Humanity has arrived at this critical evolutionary point before without successfully balancing the material and spiritual aspects of life. As a result, Earth went through drastic physical changes to ridherself of those who had the potential to destroy her, and Humankind had to begin this journey again at the most primitive level ofconsciousness. In our distant past, civilizations existed which became technologically advanced, but not spiritually advanced. Thisimbalance led to their demise. And so, our ancestors left information for us to discover and contemplate which warn of geophysical changes that periodically afflict our planetary home. Around the year 2012, however, there appears to be a fork in theroad of human destiny. Which path opens for us is determined by thechoices we make. The die has been cast and each soul must choose to turn toward the light or the dark.” — Eden Sky

  • 169. “The ancients felt the overwhelming need to transmit messages to future civilizations. They went to enormous lengths to provide convincing proof that theirs was a serious and scientifically advanced civilization. [They had a] sense of urgency that seems to have enlightened all their works and deeds... saying that cyclical, recurrent and near-total destructions of mankind arepart and parcel of life on this planet; that such destructions have occurred before and will certainly occur again.” — Graham Hancock Fingerprints of the Gods-pg 497:498
  • 170. “Astrological mapping of the years up to 2012 provide valuable insights into the nature of the coming changes upon the planet.The way in which we respond to the released celestial energies iscrucial because the upside of desperate circumstances will be anaccelerated flowering of the spirit amongst people who can relate positively to what is happening. From the perspective of events working themselves out as part of an intense global healing crisis, this is an initiation process for the whole of humanity. An astrological natal chart for December 21, 2012 says with great deliberation: “This is a test.” – moira timms Beyond Prophecies and Predictions
  • 171. Our ancestors are warning: “This is a test...” If we fail to act, that response is a choice and our future experience will reflect that choice.
  • 172. With this information in mind,let’s now examine the prophecies from different civilizations:
  • 173. ancient MayansWe are exiting the Fifth Age of Man – the “Age of the Intellect”And entering the Sixth Age of Man — the “Age of the Gods”
  • 174. The Classic Maya were extremely intelligent, possessing advanced knowledge of the written language, mathematics and astronomy, referred to by science as ‘The Maya Phenomenon.’
  • 175. According to the Maya,December 21, 2012 is the beginning of “a new world age — a new creation.” They explain that the world we create willdepend upon the choices we make now.
  • 176. The Classic Maya state that we are now living in the fourth “sun” or great solar cycle, which will end on December 21, 2012. OnDecember 22 , 2012, we will begin a new fifth “sun,” which we are being told to now “dream” or create right now.The Maya describe three different ages that existed in the past, each ending in cataclysm created by mankind. They explain that when a civilization arrives at the end of a “great cycle,” it is given the opportunity to evolve, but if it fails the ‘test,’ the evolution of man must start all over again.
  • 177. The Maya understood that the cyclical nature of the galaxyremains constant and never changes. It is only “Man’s process toward Perfection,” i.e. evolution, which changes.
  • 178. “We are now in a transition period called the ‘Cycle of the Merge of the Dark and the Light.’ The cycle of the light will come in full force on 12/21/2012. The world will not end; it will be transformed. Earth will transcend to a new level of consciousness where everything will change. Change is accelerating now and will continueto accelerate. We will rise to a new higher level but to get there we must transform enormously powerful forces that seek to block the way. Earth can be renewed or ravaged. Now is the time to awaken and take action. This is a crucially important moment for humanity and for Earth.” — Gerardo Barrios
  • 179. “Mayan prophecies have been astonishingly exact regarding thewar in Iraq, the destruction of the Twin Towers, conflicts such as those between India and Pakistan and between Israel and Palestine, the tsunamis, earthquakes and floods are just a few examples. The predictions that have not yet come to pass areeven more catastrophic - but there is time to change the outcome! Our Grandfathers warn of calamities and the possible destruction of a large part of humankind, so that we can change such events. The Mayan Elders want to caution us that we must live in harmony, become aware, stop polluting, and safeguard our natural resources. The damage we have already done to Mother Earth is more than obvious.” — Carlos Barrios The Book of Destiny
  • 180. “We are in a Time of Trial, a sacred testing, a Great Crossing. We mustfind the ways to live in harmony and peacefully coexist within our Biosphere; our survival depends upon our awakening to the interdependence of life.” — Carlos Barrios The Book of Destiny
  • 181. “During the last few years preceding 2012, we are told that we must disintegrate the corruption within the traditional world order. For those who choose the old ways, it will be the end oftheir world. For those who pledged allegiance to the sacrednessof life and the planet, the sound the old makes as it crumbles will be the sound of one egg cracking.” — Carlos Barrios The Book of Destiny
  • 182. Hopi prophecies We are exiting the“Fourth World of Destruction” and entering the “Fifth World of Peace”
  • 183. The Hopi, whose name means "people of peace," have sacredtraditions that go back thousands of years. Their prophecies state that a great purification would take place on Earth; a time when the world would shudder and tremble causing much destruction in order to cleanse the planet of the karmic negativity we have created while serving as its caretakers.
  • 184. “The Hopi spoke of three previous “Suns,” (world ages) eachculminating in a great annihilation followed by the gradual re- emergence of mankind. They explain that the first world wasdestroyed by fire; the second ended when the terrestrial globetoppled from its axis and everything was covered with ice; thethird ended in a universal flood; and the fate of the fourth, our present world, will depend on whether or not its inhabitants behave in accordance with the creator’s plans.” — graham hancock Fingerprints of the Gods- pg 198
  • 185. The Hopi warn that humankind now stands at a critical point of decision where we must choose everlasting life or total destruction.
  • 186. Hopi wisdom explains: “We now face thefinal test of human consciousness: we must restore our oneness with creation. We aregoing home. It is a process. It is likethe seed becoming the green shoot and then the flower.”
  • 187. “The key to going through these changes lies in meditation andprayer and giving love to all things: people, animals, plants and mountains for the spirit is one of the cantinas (expressions of spirit) which are many.” — Hopi wisdom
  • 188. Lakota Sioux propheciesWe are exiting a period of chaos and destruction and entering a period of harmony and unity
  • 189. The Lakota prophecies tell us that the transitioninto the new era would begin when a rare white buffalo was born. The father of this buffalo would die shortly after its birth and then thisbuffalo would change its color four times — each color representing one of the root races in our world and symbolizing the coming together of humanity.
  • 190. As prophesied, in August of 1994 an extremely rare white buffalo, named “Miracle” was born in Janesville, Wisconsin. Miracle’s father died ten days later and amazingly her coat indeed changed color over the next 3 years:from white to black to red to yellow.
  • 191. “Miracle”color changes 1994-1997
  • 192. The Lakota prophecies also tell us that ifwe fail to achieve harmony at this evolutionary juncture...
  • 193. life as we now know it… will end.
  • 194. Hindu prophecies We are exiting the Kali Yuga, “The Age of Ignorance” and entering the Satya Yuga,“The Golden Age of Truth and Knowledge”
  • 195. The Hindu separated the great25,920 year cycle into periods known as Yugas. They tell us that we are now living at the close of the Kali Yuga: an era characterized by darkness, suffering, greed, and violence - an age wherethe helpless become targets to be preyed upon.But in the near future, we will transition into the “Satya”Yuga - an era characterized by virtue and wisdom wheremisery, hatred, and illness no longer exist.
  • 196. Kali Yuga Satya Yuga
  • 197. The Hindu prophecies explain that the transition into the next yuga would occur when problems became amplified and hypocrisy reached its zenith. The discomfort produced from these actions would compel us to seek solutions which would then usher in the next stage of evolution.
  • 198. “The Indian Vedas [the primary texts of Hinduism] tell us that cataclysms occasionally overtake the world and [in the process]the written scriptures are destroyed. After eachdestruction there are survivors, ‘wise men’ who ‘repromulgate atthe beginning of the new age the knowledge inherited by them as a sacred trust from their forbearers in the preceding age.’” — graham hancock Fingerprints of the Gods-pg 483-484
  • 199. ancient EGYPTIANSWe are exiting the “Piscean Age”and entering the “Aquarian Age”
  • 200. The ancient Egyptians were an incredibly sophisticated culturepossessing advanced abilities in design, architecture, engineering and construction incapable of being replicated today.The Giza complex of ancient Egypt is the last of the seven ancientwonders of the world. The great pyramid is considered one of the most mysterious enigmas which exists today, and is the largest and most massive stone structure in the world.Egyptologists claim that the Pyramids were built by pharaohs astombs, however, the Great Pyramid did not contain a pharaohs body, a treasure chamber, nor treasures. What then was its purpose?
  • 201. Legend claims that encoded in its architecture is a proph- etic message containing the past and future history of our planet. If this was indeed the intent of the Egyptians, they had a tallorder, for they had to construct a monument that wouldnot only endure for eons, but be understood by a future civilization.
  • 202. The word pyramid perhaps sheds light on its meaning. In Greek, the word "pyra" means light or visible, and the word "midos," means measures. Hence, the Great Pyramid of Giza has been called "the centerof measurement and enlightenment (knowledge)" for centuries.
  • 203. Scientist and mathematician, Sir Isaac Newton was mesmerized by both the legend of the Pyramid and its incredible accuracy of construction. After studying the measurements made by numerous investigators before him, Newton recognized that key measurements would produce round numbers if he utilized the Sacred Jewish Inch,a unit of measure said to have been used in ancient times. The sacredJewish inch is 1/25 of a sacred cubit, or 1/1,000 inch larger than the British inch, and has a meaning beyond measurement for the Bible often employs substitutions such as days for years. Using one pyramid inch to represent one year, the pyramid reveals unmistakable geometrical relationships.
  • 204. *The relationship between Pi (p) and Phi (F) is expressed in thefundamental proportions of the Great Pyramid.*The length of a base is 9,131 Pyramid Inches from corner tocorner in a straight line.*The length of a base side at the base socket level is 9,131Pyramid Inches or 365.24 Pyramid Cubits. (365 days in a year)*The length of a base side at sidereal socket level is 9,131.4Pyramid Inches or 365.256 Pyramid Cubits.*The length of the perimeter at the sidereal socket level is36,525.63629 Pyramid Inches.*The perfect formula height of the pyramid including the missingapex is 5813.2355653763 Pyramid Inches, calculated fromperimeter of base divided by 2 Pyramid Inches.*The height to the missing apex is 5,812.98 Pyramid Inches.
  • 205. *The volume of the pyramid is: V = 1/3 base area x height =161,559,817,000 cubic Pyramid Inches = 10,339,828.3 cubicPyramid Cubits. [(5,813.2355653 Pyramid Inches)/3 x 9 131Pyramid Inches x 9 131 Pyramid Inches]*The sum of the pyramids two base diagonals in Pyramid Inches= length of the Precession of the Equinoxes (25,827 years)* The distance from the ceiling of the Kings Chamber to the apexof the pyramid = 4,110.5 Pyramid Inches, the radius of a circlewhose circumference = the precession of the equinoxes. [4,110.5x ”2 “ Pyramid Inches = 25,827]*The outside surface stones are cut within 0.01 (1/100th) inch ofperfectly straight and at nearly perfect right angles for all sixsides, and placed together with a gap between them of 0.02 inchdesigned to allow space for glue to seal and hold the stonestogether.
  • 206. *The perimeter of the 35th course of blocks, thicker than any ofthe other courses, reveals a figure which corresponds with theprecession of the equinoxes.*The mortar used to connect the casing stones and make themwatertight is still intact and stronger than the blocks that it joins.*The Ascending Passage rises at the same angle, 26.3 degrees,as the angle of decline of the Descending Passage.*The Descending Passage lines up with the Pole Star. With thelength of the passage 334 feet long, the angle of view is only + or- 1/3 of a degree. Because of the slow motion of the stars, thepassage lines up precisely to a Pole Star only once every severalthousand years. Stars move, and the Pole Star, Alpha Draconishas not been in direct alignment with the Descending Passage forthousands of years. However, a new Pole Star, known as theNorth Star, or "Polaris,” aligned with the floor of theSubterranean Passage in 2004.
  • 207. *Each year the North Star shines further down the DescendingPassage thus illuminating the entrance to the Well Shaft in 1997.*The Pyramids immense weight is supported by a flat solidgranite mountain directly under the Pyramid.*The Pyramid is located at the exact center of the Earths landmass. Its East-West axis corresponds to the longest land parallelacross the Earth and the longest land meridian on Earth passesright through the Pyramid.* A universal relationship exists between the diameter of a circleand its circumference. The height of the Pyramids apex is5,812.98 inches, and each side is 9,131 inches from corner tocorner (in a straight line). If the circumference of the Pyramid isdivided by twice its height (the diameter of a circle is twice theradius), the result is 3.14159 – pi — demonstrated many times inthe pyramids precise construction.
  • 208. *The great pyramid was built to face true North.*The Pyramids cornerstones have balls and sockets built intothem. After 4,600 year, this structure would have beensignificantly damaged without such construction.*Each of the Pyramids four walls, when measured as a straightline, are 9,131 inches, for a total of 36,524 inches — moving thedecimal point over = 365.24 — the exact length of the solar year.*The average height of land above sea level (Miami being lowand the Himalayas being high), as can be measured only bymodern-day satellites and computers is 5,449 inches — the exactheight of the Pyramid.*The four sides of the Pyramid are very slightly and evenlybowed in exactly replicating the curvature of the earth; theradius of this concave bow is equal to the radius of the Earth.
  • 209. CHRONOLOGICAL MEASUREMENTS? When years are substituted for inches, some allege that the Great Pyramid becomes a prophetic calendar. Dates shown include thealignment of the last Pole Star Draconis in 2141 B.C., the start of thePyramids construction in 2623 B.C., the Exodus of the Israelites from Egypt in 1453 B.C., the death of Christ in 33 A.D., and the start of World War I in 1914.
  • 210. In addition to the incredible stone monuments the Egyptiansconstructed, they also possessed an astonishingly accurate zodiac calendar which spanned thousands of years.
  • 211. This calendar ended on September 17, 2001; six short days after the September 11 attacks – a day that changed the course of history and forcedmany choices which would impact the future of Humanity. Some say that September 2001 marked the beginning of the most intensive end phase of our “test” where the level of our collective consciousness would be revealed...
  • 212. This calendar is called the Dendera disk, an ancient celestial zodiac clock ticking away Earth’s journey through time. It is embedded into the stone ceiling of the Dendera temple complex in Egypt and clearly marks the shift from one world age to thenext as well as one zodiac sign to the next. More intriguing, every zodiac sign is close to its successor with the exception of Pisces and Aquarius. Between these two signs is a symbol called “the Square of Pegasus” – a tablet that holds the ‘programs ofdestiny;’ telling us that during the cycle we are now in, there is a window of opportunity for Humankind to evolve.
  • 213.
  • 214. “Historical records contain indisputable evidence that secret wisdom came out of ancient mysteryschools in Egypt. They taught that thePyramid represents enlightenment: anarchitectural symbol of ancient mans ability to break free from the earthly plane and ascend toward Heaven —the
