I hope this doesn’t prove a bit too detailed for you. Please move onto to the next post if it is.
For those for whom it is germaine, I recommend the site it comes from, which carries a great deal more information on the Mayan cosmology.
The third article Geoff refers to has a few too many graphics for me to reproduce. I recommend that you go to the site he points to: http://www.diagnosis2012.co.uk/5.htm#kukulcan
5. Solstice – Galactic Centre Conjunction; John Major Jenkins has finally decoded the meaning behind the Mayan Great Cycle.
In his book Maya Cosmogenesis 2012, he shows that the Great Cycle is a fifth and final cycle in the 26,000-year Precession of the Equinoxes, except that the Mayans measured it from the Winter Solstice instead of the Spring Equinox.
This is the widest part of the Milky Way, and corresponds to the direction of the centre of the galaxy. As the alignment occurs, the Earth will align with the plane of the galaxy and pass onto the other side,*
* causing a “ field – effect energy reversal”, allowing us to resonate with the source of the field.
This will be the completion of the human spiritual embryogenesis which is measured by the Mayan Long Count calendar, culminating in a “pole shift” in the collective psyche, and the birth of our Higher Selves. This last day of the Great Cycle, the Maya called Creation Day. *
*The alignment is discussed, (including the idea that the solar system is “north” of the galactic plane) at Time wave Zero 2012 posts 1126 – 1176 (see esp. posts 1147 & 1169 ) Jenkins’ essay “The True Alignment Zone ” also clarifies the alignment issue.
