It’s July 21, 2012, which means we have five more months to go before everything about our lives changes and we graduate from the Third Dimension. To mark that milestone, we repost an article from earlier in the year reviewing who says that Dec. 21, 2012 is “the” date. This version has been revised and expanded.
What Sources Say We’ll Ascend on Dec. 21, 2012?
How do we know that Ascension will occur on Dec. 21, 2012? Who said it will? Various galactic, celestial and spiritual sources have. Why don’t we review their evidence to see who supports that date as the time of Ascension.
On Feb. 24, 2012, SaLuSa told us: “That you have a date for the completion of this cycle is wonderful, as it means you have something to set your sights upon as you count the days that remain.” (1) On some occasions, SaLuSa places the time at the end of 2012: “Nothing will stop the Ascension process from finally manifesting at the end of 2012.” (2) Elsewhere, he actually names the date as “the 21st of December,” 2012 (3) and “21.12.12.” (4)
Celestials like Archangel Michael support the same date for Ascension. Here he speaks through Celia Fenn on the matter: “Beloved Ones, you are all invited to be present at the Grand Ceremonies of Inauguration of the New Earth Reality on the 11/11/11, the 12/12/12 and the 21/12/12.” (5)
The angels that speak through Magenta Pixie have named the same date as the time for Ascension: “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.” (6)
Matthew Ward put the time of Ascension at the end of 2012: “It is Earth’s destiny to leave third density when a universal cycle opens an astral window at the end of this year.” (7)
“The highest universal council created the master plan for [Earth's] transition out of third density and the return to fifth, where Earth’s soul originated and remained even as the accumulating negativity caused her body to spiral downward.
“The plan included the joint efforts of evolved beings from other civilizations with selected persons on Earth and a timetable for the planet to be out of third density, the end of your year 2012. Even though time—which in reality is the prevailing energy frequency—is passing more quickly by the day, Earth’s timely arrival at the threshold of what was named her Golden Age is certain.” (8)
SaLuSa reveals that “the solar cycle was planned to complete in 2012.” (9) On another occasion, he identifies Dec. 21, 2012 as the day the Mayan calendar ends, though he adds that history does not also end on that date.
“Word of the year 2012 being an important one is spreading, but unfortunately because the Mayan Calendar ends on the 21st of December, it is being taken by some people as the end of the world. That of course naturally evokes fear amongst you, but with the coverage given by the Internet we feel that it will soon be understood that the ‘end’ is but the beginning of a new cycle.” (10)
Not only did SaLuSa hold that the Mayan calendar ends on Dec. 21, 2012; he also stated that a galactic alignment would occur on that day and be instrumental in bringing on Ascension:
“As things unfold this year you will see plenty of proof in respect of our part in the build up to Ascension. It is real and divinely decreed to take place with a high point due to the powerful alignment on the 21st. December 2012. From thereon you will continue to evolve into even higher dimensions, each one more beautiful and peaceful than the one before.” (11)
“At the time of the 21st December 2012, the high energy influx due to the alignment of your Sun and the Great Central Sun is going to ‘separate’ those who are ready to ascend, and those who are not. (12)
Kryon, who first spoke of Ascension in 1989, also supports the theory that it’s the galactic alignment of that date that will presage or cause the shift.
“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 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 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.” (13)
The same contentions are made by others who draw on Mayan calculations. Reba Cain, for instance, says that “the Mayan Long Count Calendar … ends on December 21, 2012.” (14) Mayan elder Carlos Barrios also supports that date. In an article by Elaine Seiler, Barrios is quoted as saying:
“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.” (15)
Seiler gives Barrios’ interpretation of what we might expect on Dec. 21, according to the Mayan predictions:
“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.’” (16)
Well known Lightworker Patricia Diane Cota-Robles names Dec. 21, 2012 as the date of our Ascension into the Fifth Dimension on Sept. 9, 2012.
“Now, as we move toward the quantum shifts up the Spiral of Evolution that will take place December 12, 2012—12:12:12, and December 21st, 2012—the December Solstice, the Beings of Light in the Realms of Illumined Truth are revealing to us the greatest need of the hour. The Divine Plan is that now, since a Renaissance of Divine Love has been birthed on Earth, we have the potential of Ascending into frequencies of the 5th Dimension that will transcend our Human miscreations.” (17)
Well-known spiritual author Diana Cooper also ties the date not only into Mayan and other native calculations but into events that began with Atlantis. She gives a vivid picture of what will happen on that day.
“2012 marks the end of a 26,000 year astrological period as recognized by the Mayans, Incas, Aztecs, Maoris and most of the ancient cultures. December 2012 is also the final end of the experiment of Atlantis. This took 10,000 years to set up, lasted for 240,000 years and is taking 10,000 years to tie up all the loose ends, so the 260,000 year experiment ends on 21.12.2012.
“Then we start a double transformational shift as the planet and all on her, including humans, rapidly move towards ascension. This is the greatest opportunity for spiritual growth that there has ever been in the entire history of the planet and beings from all over the Universes are watching in awe at what is happening on Earth.
“There are two cosmic moments occurring, one at 11.11 on 11th November 2011 and the second at 11.11 on 21st December 2012. These are instants of total silence throughout the Universe when the portals of heaven open pouring in new divine energy – and unimaginable things can happen. Vast numbers of people will awaken psychically and spiritually.” (18)
Last year, when I interviewed him on An Hour with an Angel, Archangel Michael asked me if I would object if Ascension came earlier than December 21?
Archangel Michael: If anything, my beloved friend — and we keep telling you this — you are ahead of schedule. But do we want you to be wedded to a date? No. Do we say that the dates that have been given are accurate and significant? Yes. If you were paralyzed, and let us suggest that in many ways the collective has been paralyzed, if you were paralyzed, and you were praying and praying and doing your sacred practice, and meditating for healing, and you were given the date of December 2012, would you be upset, dear friend, if it arrived in September? I think not.
So look to your dates, but at the same time we are asking deeply of you, keep an open mind to early arrival.
Steve: So, so the shift that we’re expecting could happen before December 21, 2012?
AAM: That is correct. (19)
We’ve already heard sources like SaLuSa and Carlos Barrios say that history does not end on Dec. 21, 2012. Here is the Arcturian group through Marilyn Raffaelle on the subject in their inaugural message of 2012: “We wish you all a very happy 2012 — the year so many have been waiting for for so long. Be aware that not all is going to suddenly appear different on December 21, 2012.” (20)
They remind us that Ascension is simply another step in realizing the purpose of life – awakening to our divinity – rather than simply beautifying the planet.
“This is an ongoing process of light which is dependent upon you, dear ones, dependent upon the activity of light flowing onto the planet though the awakening of souls to their divine nature. These times are about awakening to your divinity, not simply about making the world a more pleasant place to live.” (21)
The theme that Dec. 21 is a beginning rather than an ending date can be found in SaLuSa as well. “Bear in mind that the 21.12.12 is a major upliftment,” he tells us, “yet only the beginning of another cycle of experience. However, it is for your civilization the opportunity to leave duality, and not continue re-incarnating in the lower dimension.” (22)
Matthew Ward also reminds us that the date is an entrance, not an exit: “The arrival of the popularized date of December 21, 2012, does not mean that Earth humankind will have entered an era of complacent stability.” (23)
Very recently, SaLuSa told us how we might wish to relate to the approach of that event by taking things day by day.
“You are now in the last few months before the big day, and understandably some are questioning whether they should plan for the future beyond it. They ask about matters like investments or property ownership, and generally about lack and in many cases poverty.
“We ask you to now take matters on a day to day basis, as very soon many problems that beset you now will have been solved by the planned changes. Abundance and prosperity will soon answer your various needs, and eventually you shall want for absolutely nothing at all. Much is to follow after Ascension, but equally your desperate needs will be seen to as soon as possible We are fully aware of what we need to do to make you happy and able to rest in peace, by knowing that we are authorized to do so.” (24)
“The countdown to Ascension has started,” according to SaLuSa. (25)
“The energies around the world continue to build up, and are carried by the grid that is lifting up the Earth. All is preparing for the final thrust of energy, that will propel it into the new level of expression and out of duality. It will also fulfill the promises of a new Age that will be unlike anything you have experienced previously. and truly bring about a heaven upon Earth.” (26)
We can see that a range of sources, from Mayans to masters, galactics to celestials have named the date of Dec. 21, 2012 as one on which a galactic alignment opens an astral window and allows this planet and its inhabitants to increase their frequency from that of the Third to that of the Fifth Dimension. Not all sources and scholars agree on the same date, but a significant body of credible sources do.
