Will Ascension Happen on Dec. 21, 2012?

A controversy exists between Carl Calleman who says that the end of Mayan Calendar will occur on Oct. 28, 2011 and others who believe the end will be Dec. 21, 2012.  Not Calleman perhaps but many of us associate Ascension with that calendar end, which we believe will be Dec. 21, 2012.  Let’s look at the two views.

Here is Carl:

As we approach the time when all the nine waves, developing at different speeds, will simultaneously come to manifest fully (28 October 2011, 13 Ahau) there is thus going to be quite complex patterns of overlapping of these waves. (Carl Calleman, “The Conscious Convergence: A Wave of Unity, July 17-18, 2010,” at

Thus, human consciousness will continue to be transformed step by step in accordance with this plan until we come to the real end date of the process of creation, October 28, 2011. At this date the highest quantum state of the universe will be attained ( 13 Ahau) when the shifts disrupting the harmony will come to an end. Obviously, we are not there yet. …

Only at October 28, 2011 will the shifts come to an end and a unity consciousness stabilize that will provide the basis for a millennium of peace. This frequency increase incidentally also explains how such a tremendous overhaul of all systems of dominance could take place in such a short period of time. A recommendation I would like to make, in addition to ethical living and telling the truth, is to learn to flow with the ninth level . Stay in the middle of the river with a focus on the manifestation of the new world! (Carl Johan Calleman, “The Final Mayan calendar steps to 2012:
November 8, 2009 – the beginning of the Sixth NIGHT,” Oct. 31, 2009, at

There are also others who say it will come on Dec. 23, 2012 and other dates as well. In the face of that controversy, I asked myself who was it that said that Ascension will take place on Dec. 21? Here is a collection of people who refer to that date, some saying it will bring Ascension and some saying it is significant without committing themselves to saying that Ascension will take place on that date.

Matthew Ward

Matthew does not say that everyone will ascend on Dec. 21, 2012, but he does refer to the date. See the end of this article for a wider discussion of Matthew’s views.

The arrival of the popularized date of December 21, 2012, does not mean that Earth humankind will have entered an era of complacent stability. The only constant in the universe is change! Not only will marvelous developments continue in all areas of your world, but spiritually and intellectually, you will continue to grow through innumerable physical lifetimes, some in worlds where life will exceed even the glories of Earth’s Golden Age. (Matthew’s Message, Sept. 21, 2009.)

Earth’s ascension—the process of world transformation and spiritual renewal that enables her to rise out of third density and continue into the Golden Age—has been ongoing for about seventy years in linear time; and by the end of your calendar year 2012, the darkness that has proliferated for millennia will have disappeared in all its vicious forms. (Matthew’s Message, Feb. 7, 2009.)

Magenta Pixie and the Nine

We have spoken much of the date 21st of December, 2012, and indeed, that date, the culmination of the Ascension process, is a significant one. (The White Winged Collective Consciousness of None through Magenta Pixie, May 15, 2011, at


So now we will review yet again, in a more succinct fashion than ever before, the changes that we began to speak of in 1989. The potential was always there that this current shift would bring tremendous weather anomalies to you. Yet, even if it looks odd, it’s not. Instead, it’s a returning cycle. However, what is anomalous is the fact that you have brought this cycle to the planet earlier than it was ever expected. There’s a reason for that. The shift before you is a shift of Human consciousness. It coordinates with the Galactic Alignment, the precession of the wobble of the earth, bringing into alignment that which you see as your sun aligning with the center of the galaxy. [This event happens on Dec. 21, 2012.] This represents the profound prophecy from the ancients. Something is happening regarding the evolution of Human consciousness. If you were to assign an attribute to it, it would be that which is a speed-up of vibration. Your DNA is vibrating faster.

Salvador Russo

The dawning of this glorious new era is a testament to the infinite and cyclical nature of Creation, best exemplified by our solar system’s coming passage through the galactic horizon, otherwise known as the ‘photon belt’, which will transition us from a quadrant of darkness into a quadrant of Light. Rest assured that as of December 21st, 2012, the planet Earth will have crossed this cosmic border and begun its infinite and permanent ascent into the higher realms of existence. (Salvador Russo, “Neptune in Pisces: The Renaissance of the Soul,” May 3, 2011,,

Mayan Scholar Mark van Stone

If you use the GMT plus 2 correlation, which many of my friends believe in it, …

that’s the one that puts 13000 at Dec. 23, and that’s the one I was schooled in, but I have since come to lean toward the old GMT which is two days earlier. Several of my colleagues believe in that date and certainly that is the date that lines up with the solstice and certainly that date is the one that lines up with the solstice, the Dec. 21 date, and that date has been fixed on by most of the 2012ologists and the people that are looking at the end date being the reason why the calendar was invented. (Mark van Stone interviewed by Carl Johan Calleman on the Mayan calendar and the 2012 date part 2, mounted to Youtube on Nov. 15, 2010, at

Mayan Elder Carlos Barrios

Carlos Barrios (Mayan Elder): “Anthropologists visit the temple sites and read the inscriptions and make up stories about the Maya, but they do not read the signs correctly. It’s just their imagination. Other people write about prophecy in the name of the Maya. They say that the world will end in December 2012. The Mayan elders are angry with this. The world will not end. It will be transformed.”

“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: “The indigenous have the calendars and know how to accurately interpret it — not others. The Mayan Calendars comprehension of time, seasons, and cycles has proven itself to be vast and sophisticated. The Maya understand 17 different calendars such as the Tzolk’in or Cholq’ij, some of them charting time accurately over a span of more than ten million years. …

At sunrise on December 21, 2012 for the first time in 26,000 years the Sun rises to conjunct the intersection of the Milky Way and the plane of the ecliptic. This cosmic cross is considered to be an embodiment of the Sacred Tree, The Tree of Life, a tree remembered in all the world’s spiritual traditions.

Some observers say this alignment with the heart of the galaxy in 2012 will open a channel for cosmic energy to flow through the Earth, cleansing it and all that dwells upon it, raising all to a higher level of vibration. Carlos reminds us: “This process has already begun. Change is accelerating now and it will continue to accelerate.

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, higher level. But to get there we must transform enormously powerful forces that seek to block the way.”

The date specified in the calendar Winter Solstice in the year 2012 does not mark the end of the world. Many outside people writing about the Mayan calendar sensationalize this date, but they do not know. The ones who know are the indigenous elders who are entrusted with keeping the tradition. (Elaine Seiler, “2012 Will Not be the End of the Word,” April 21, 2011, Transformation Energetics, at

Reba Cain

The Mayan Long Count Calendar marks a cycle of 5,125 years that ends on December 21, 2012. …

In summary, I want to emphasize that there are several versions of the Mayan Calendar, all focused on a consciousness shift that is causing an awakening. And secondly, that what’s more important than waiting for a specific date for the shift to happen is to understand that we are in a zone of time right now in which the shift is happening.

And lastly, that by working with concepts from the calendar, we can understand the unfolding of cycles such as our current economic situation, increase our attunement to nature and the universe, and be more prepared for the consciousness shift now occurring. (Reba Cain, “The Mayan Calendar: What You Need to Know,” The Awakening Shift, Feb. 19, 2011 at

But note as well Matthew Ward’s discussion of those times. He tells us that we are not all simply going to disappear from 3D Earth or fly into the sky on that date. Here is what he says:

It will not happen on December 21, 2012 or any other date that you will be standing beside two others and before your very eyes, they will disappear into their own “timelines.” Even the usual date of December 31, 2012, will be much like the previous and the following days—that is, except for New Year’s Eve celebrations. The differences between life in this moment and in the Golden Age will be amazing and magnificent, but life will not differ dramatically from one day to the next as Earth continues on her journey through fourth density and on into fifth.

Understandably, there is a great deal of speculation about what will happen to whom at the end of 2012. There is no definitive answer because what happens to each soul will be in accordance with the uniqueness of each soul. However, we can say with certainty that the theory of a celestial body appearing as a “second Earth” and becoming the third density home for souls who do not physically accompany the “first Earth” into fourth density is erroneous. You are a soul in a human body. Earth is a soul in a planetary body.

Her soul remained in its fifth density origin while her body spiraled into deep third density during the millennia that her human residents were shedding each others’ blood, mass-slaughtering her animals and severely damaging her body. She could have chosen to let her assaulted body die, but instead she chose to have its health restored so all of her residents in their myriad life forms could continue. Moreover the “two Earths” theory accommodates only the people whose lifetime choices would place them in a different third density world. There will be souls whose lifetime choices automatically will take them to first or second density placements; and at the other end of the spectrum are the souls who came from fourth, fifth and higher density worlds specifically to assist Earth in her ascension—when their mission is completed, they will return to their homelands. (Matthew’s Message, Feb. 14, 2010.)

So we still may not know completely what will happen around Ascension or Dec. 21, 2012. That information will undoubtedly be coming later.
