22. Barefoot on Holy Ground: Twelve Lessons in Spiritual Craftsmanship by Gloria D. Karpinski 2 x 2012 refs

"We are vibrating, resonating instruments, so if we are holding fear around the shift, we will resonate with the fear peddlers. If we examine and release our fears, anything is possible. Even though we don’t know what will happen, we know from experience that as we pass through various cosmic cycles, something will happen. The first few times that I received the number 2012 in a meditation as a significant date, I took it with a big dose of cosmic salt. Like the contents of Pandora’s box, the prophecy pot has been overturned and the contents have poured out into the collective for anybody to pick up and interpret. I asked myself: Is this a truth I have been shown or have I simply picked up on an arbitrary date because so many people have energized it that it is accepted as truth? But I realized that this date had been showing up in meditations before I knew that anyone else was getting it. Then as I read various prophecies, learned the unusual astrological lineups of that year and talked to others around the world who had received the same information, I realized that if I was off, then lots of us were off at the same time."

 “It is important to be clear about that date. I don’t think for a minute that the world will stop. Nor do I think Pisces will come to a screeching halt and Aquarius will be ushered in with a fanfare. I do suspect that we have been given this date from so many quarters as a kind of grace period…”

36. Hidden Guatemala (Hidden Series) by Richard Harris  1 x 2012 ref Mentions Arguelles and the end of the calendar

"Recently, spiritual leaders representing the various Maya groups and most other traditional native American tribes have been presenting their own, more optimistic version of the ancient prophecy. The Confederation of Indigenous Elders of America, an assembly of more than 200 tribal healers and visionaries formed at the invitation of the Maya High Council "to unite the Eagle of the North and the Condor of the South" first met in Guatemala in 1995 to share their ancestral wisdom, medecine and prophecies. Subsequent gatherings have been held in Colombia in 1997 and New Mexico in 1999.

Confederation spokesperson Patricio Dominguez explains that a council of Maya leaders in A.D. 1490 (two years before Columbus arrived in the Caribbean) prophesied that the year 1517 (the same year that Spanish explorers first discovered the land of the Maya) would mark the start of the "Nine Cycles of Hell" - a 468-year period during which time, indigenous Americans would lose their culture, religion, sciences and languages. this dark age ended in 1985, according to the tribal elders, and humankind is now witnessing the dawn of a new golden age in which ancient knowledge and native thought will become central to mainstream American spiritual life. the world as we knew it, they say, has already ended - and not a minute too soon!"

52. Unsolved Mysteries: The World's Most Compelling Cases of Alien Encounter by Harold William/Burt Birnes  1 x 2012 ref 

"Pam Hamilton’s experiences started with greys before she could walk (in her crib). As she got older, she says she met a new companion, a tall creature with very pale skin and fair hair that, like the grays, communicated with her telepathically. The Nordics – at first a male and then a female – became constant companions, sometimes even materializing when she was with other people. The female still shows up, Pam says, and even after all these years has shown no signs of aging.

In one of the first memories of contact with the Nordics, Pam recalls looking up from the alphabet blocks she was playing with and seeing a strange creature who communicated to her that she had nothing to fear. In subsequent contacts, the creature imparted specific dates into her mind along with images associated with those dates. For example, she remembers him telling her that, “2012 would be very important to me. I would be leading people through the mountains. What mountains? I have no idea. He said as I grew I would know certain things”. Yet, in her conversations with other abductees, she’s learned that her experiences are not unique. There is a sense among people who’ve been abducted that they have something inside of them that will “switch on” at some point….”

"Arguably the most formidable application of sacred geometry to an edifice of spiritual transformation will be the Templar, a multi-level pyramidal structure only slightly smaller than the one at Giza, currently being designed by Norma milanovich and her colleagues. The Templar will incorporate sacred geometry from all of the world’s major religions. Through the precise integration of form, proportion, substance and frequency, it will facilitate spiritual transformation in a way not seen on this planet, ir ever, for thousands of years. The Templar is projected to be complete by 2012."

64. Introducing Michael Morris by John Reizer Every 90,000 years, Planet X comes close enough to push the earth into a fourth-dimensional state. In 2012, this will happen, but without the usual pole shift. Slowed rotation and meteorites, then a shift to 4D where we will see "desert plains littered with machine-marked surveillance grids. The overall shock of having to function in an entirely new reality system will be overwhelming for most people. the biggest surprise for most humans will be the unveiling of the reptilian race of beings that regularly lives within the fourth dimensional state of Earth. Humans and reptiles will walk the Earth together and they will appear in their true physical forms." This will last for about 50 years before the planet returns to 3D

65. Magic Mushrooms and Other Highs: From Toad Slime to Ecstasy edited by Paul Krassner. The book contains an interview with Terence McKenna, in which he is asked, "What are your visions of alternative scenarios that are upcoming, either in December of 2012, or before?" McKenna's reply covers 3 pages, and is thus an unusually long comment by him on 2012 scenarios. The discussion of time travel is quite interesting - McKenna considers the possibility that December 2012 will see the first working time machine - seconds after it is first used, many other machines will arrive. The grandfather paradox is also discussed.

66. Book of Life: Ascension and the Divine World Order by Dr Michael Sharp. "The upper boundary of the universe is literally the edge of possibility or the edge of time. Interestingly, the top is affected by everything below. The sorts of creative things you can do at the end of the tunnel (like ascend for example) are very much dependent on conditions in the tube all the way back to the beginning. The Mayans understood this. They came as spiritual emissaries to remind us where the end of the tube was and why it was important. They originally told us the end of time (the end of the tube) was 2012. Beyond 2012 they could not see because it simply did not exist. After 2012, time ended. This was not because the universe ended but because the world they existed in, i.e. the old world with the old energies, ceased to exist. They could not see past 2012 because at 2012 our creation train literally jumped the cosmic track and moved on to an entirely different time line. This great leap of possibility that the Mayans foretold was, in fact, the date of the original Ascension and the grand awakening." However, Sharp goes on to say that due to changing conditions, the whole process would now occur in 2003. This misunderstanding originates in disinformation and has been dealt with already on this site. See The Sylvia Brown 2003 Error and Jumping on the 2003/2012 Bandwagon

67. Lost Star of Myth And Time by Walter Cruttenden. As mentioned in 2012 News Feb 2005, the Sirius Research Group present the possibility that the precessional cycle does not actually exist as a slow rotation of the Earth's axis, but the phenomena we interpret as that movement actually represents the movement of our solar system around another centre - Sirius. There are several mentions of Walter Cruttenden on the site, and his book, Lost Star of Myth and Time seems from what I have gleaned so far, if not to agree with the Sirius Research Group, to at least consider it as one possibility: "Chapter 5 is devoted to speculation on what the sun's companion star might be, considering various objects like black holes, brown dwarfs and dead stars. It also considers the possibility that Sirius, Indra and Nibiru might be one and the same, while introducing the effect of distant influences like those emanating from the Pleiades.".  From the Amazon reviews. Cruttenden's own site can be checked for more information: The Binary Research Institute

Here are excerpts of the 2012 quotes:

on Page 35: "... a prophecy: Thousands of years ago they said that man would gain a new perspective on "time" by the year 2012. John Major Jenkins, Mayan scholar and author of Maya Cosmogenisis 2012 and Galactic Alignment,' interprets it to be a paradigm ..."

on Page 63: "... (3114 BC vs. 3102 BC). The end date of this Fourth Sun age is set at the winter solstice of 2012, when according to many, the Earth, the solstice Sun, and the galactic center will line up: the galactic alignment.2' Evidence ..."

on Page 64: "... or "Sun," as they called it, to another. Contrary to what some alarmists claim, the coming Mayan end- date of 2012 may not represent the end of the physical world at all. Jenkins feels that a careful study of the writings ..."

on Page 250: "... or "Suns." A new Age or World of the Fifth Sun is to begin, according to their calendar, December 21, 2012. - a time when humanity begins to awaken in consciousness. Rather than being based on the physical movements of the ..."

from Front Matter:"... it was the Mayans - relentless keepers of the ancient calendars - who prophesized that it would be revealed by 2012. What is this knowledge that awaits rediscovery? I believe it be no less than the celestial mystery of the ages. ..."
