Cosmic Heart Aligning with Galactic Time & Natural Harmony – Mayan Elders & Shamans Share


Chichen Itza with portal sky above

I thought I’d share some of what the Mayan Elders, Priests and Shamans have to say about 12/21/12, the energy of our collective consciousness and aligning with galactic time in a return to natural harmony.

I especially like the Q & A with a First Shaman that really speaks to how we have gotten out of alignment and offers suggestions as to what we can do to return there.

Included are a more expounded version of Carlos Barrios’ sharings I have posted earlier, words from Mayan Elder, Don Alejandro, and notes from Jose Arguelles.

As with anything, it is up to your heart, as to discerning what aligns with you.

I encourage this greatly at all times, as I see so much being posted out there these days that can be eye and brain candy, but the optimal test is to satisfy your heart’s intuitive resonance and guidance. I stay away from most of everything I see put out there and immediately won’t continue reading something if it starts to hit the red light button on my heart monitor.

Maya 2012 – Mayan Calendar, Mayan Prophecy and December 21, 2012

And here is a cool archaeological finding discovered in Guatemala with the 12/21/12 end date on it:

Me on one of my journeys to Chichen Itza

If your heart feels called to work with the energy of 12/21/12 and to support this shift in consciousness in returning to natural harmony, you may find resonance with our Bimini journey we are offering this December.

The Spirit of In Lak’ech – Find Your Heart and You Will Find Your Way


I have always been drawn to the simplicity of things and the innocence of the pure child nature within, feeling that nothing is complicated and it’s only our fractured ego minds that desire complexity, validation, a “proof process,” and way to verbally and intellectually articulate. There is nothing wrong with this. All of our parts are of value and integral to the whole. However, the more we feed “only” this left brain way of life (not realizing how much more empowered it would be if integrated), the less we utilize and cultivate the gift the right brain has to offer. The way we can integrate all of this is through the authenticity of our hearts and exercising in present, intentful, daily practice, trusting the intuitive guidance that flows through all of us.

Today, I was drawn to post what has been a guiding light for me. This simplicity of a focus that guides my own heart is the desire for “a return to natural harmony” – within and without, as there is no separation.

And with the energetic shifts and everything that has been leading up to now and the coming cosmic alignments, I share this simplicity as the sweetness of life. Perhaps it has a blooming message to each person’s awakening seed.

It’s also a reason I felt soul-called to the December 2012 dates to offer the magical journey in Bimini to help anchor the energies of this Harmonic Convergence 12/21/12 with our higher vibratory selves after the 12/12/12 activations – one way I can assist in the creation of a new Earth experience.

If this message and that time period also speak to a part of you, perhaps your heart feels called to join us on this journey. To explore it more, you can visit: Cosmic Heart Activation with Reiki, Raw Food and Dolphin Communion ~ Birthing the New Earth in Bimini, Bahamas 12/16 – 12/21/2012 **(see end of post for more details on number of spots remaining and how to reserve yours)

In Lak’ech Ala K’in” – The Mayan principle of Universal Love that is similar to Namaste (and also the title of my first series of 5 paintings representing an Earth history story-line of integrative healing through the 5 elements and beyond). As an expression of honoring when greeting each other, this profound realization means “I am another yourself, you are another myself” – “I am you and you are me.” The Maya priest-shamans recognized that we are one global human being. It is about dissolving the ego into complete unconditional love; “dissolving until you are ‘NOT’, then the World enters you.”

Here are words shared by Carlos Barrios, Mayan elder and Ajq’ij (ceremonial priest and spiritual guide) of the Eagle Clan, that speak to the beauty and simplicity of this heart-full message. Carlos initiated an investigation into the different Mayan calendars circulating. Along with his brother, Gerardo, he studied with many teachers and interviewed nearly 600 traditional Mayan elders to widen their scope of knowledge:

It will change –everything will change. Mayan Day-keepers view the Dec. 21, 2012 date as a rebirth, the start of the World of the Fifth Sun. It will be the start of a new era resulting from and signified by the solar meridian crossing the galactic equator and the Earth aligning itself with the center of the galaxy.”

…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.”

…The dark can only be transformed when confronted with simplicity and open-heartedness. This is what leads to unity, a key concept for the World of the Fifth Sun.

…Carlos said the emerging era of the Fifth Sun will call attention to a much-overlooked element. Whereas the four traditional elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water have dominated various epochs in the past, there will be a fifth element to reckon with in the time of the Fifth Sun — that element is ‘ETHER’.

(The image at the beginning of this post is my version of the Galactic Butterfly – Hunab Ku – from the #5 painting in my series In Lak’ech called Spirit – I chose to name it Spirit rather than Ether, but the essence remains the same. You can see it in its entirety here: Spirit)

The dictionary defines Ether as a “hypothetical substance supposed to occupy all space, postulated to account for the propagation of electromagnetic radiation through space.” Perhaps it could be defined as the “space between space”. I would suggest it could be manifest as the alignment of charged particles from our solar system (Sun), and our galaxy (Milky Way) surge. The Ether element represents spiritual energy.

“The element of the Fifth Sun is celestial. Within the context of Ether there can be a joining of the polarities. No more darkness or light in the people, but an uplifted unity…

“We need to work together for peace, and balance with the other side. We need to take care of the Earth that feeds and shelters us. We need to put our entire mind and heart into pursuing unity and unity now, to confront the other side and preserve life.”

…Now is the time to awaken and take action. Everyone is needed. You are not here for no reason. Everyone who is here now has an important purpose. This is a hard but a special time. We have the opportunity for growth, but we must be ready for this moment in history.”

…”Meditation and spiritual practice are good, but also action. It’s very important to be clear about who you are, and also about your relation to the Earth. Develop yourself according to your own tradition and the call of your heart. But remember to respect differences, and strive for unity. Eat wisely — a lot of food is corrupt in either subtle or gross ways. Pay attention to what you are taking into your body. Learn to preserve food, and to conserve energy. Learn some good breathing techniques, so you have mastery of your breath. Be clear. Follow a tradition with great roots. It is not important what tradition, your heart will tell you, but it must have great roots.”

“We live in a world of energy. An important task at this time is to learn to sense or see the energy of everyone and everything — people, plants, animals. This becomes increasingly important as we draw close to the World of the Fifth Sun, for it is associated with the element ‘ether’ — the realm where energy lives and weaves. Go to the sacred places of the Earth to pray for peace, and have respect for the Earth which gives us our food, clothing, and shelter. We need to reactivate the energy of these sacred places. That is our work.”

“The greatest wisdom is in simplicity. Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It’s not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It’s encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find your heart, and you will find your way.”

**There are only 16 spots on this trip and 1 remaining spot on the Atlantis Vortex boat trip left. It’s beautiful to hear that so many are feeling called to this journey, however if you are really intending to join this magical journey, the only way to ensure your spot is with a deposit. A deposit of $500 is needed for the retreat and $150 for the Vortex trip. Once the boat Vortex trip is filled, we will be taking names for a waiting list in case someone can’t make it or anything changes. There is also a land Vortex trip for those called to anchor on Earth, rather than water. To assist in making things easier to support this opportunity for anyone who’s heart is called, as its important to have the right energies gathering together, this trip is available also in 3 payments.

Following the Emerald Bridge Road


We are involved in an evolutionary process of our human existence wherein the collective
consciousness has been moving through the energy centers of the Chakra system. By fully embracing Chakra Four, we find balance and the ability to propel into the next dimensions. Life is a continual, progressive opportunity. This Fourth (or Heart Chakra) lies center of the Chakra system and acts as integrator of the two polarities of body and spirit. It creates a bridge that merges and disintegrates all boundaries and allows us access to our true essence and the sharing of that with others.

In order to access its energy we need to create balance and harmony between all polarities, which is inclusive of all aspects that are represented by the active male and passive female archetypes (including the dual counterpart within each) within self and without; those of
light and shadow, mind and body, physicality and spirituality, conscious and
subconscious, harmony between races, and ecological balance. The focus is
that of integration. All aspects are essential and each an important tool in their own way, enabling us to honor, as a unit, the heart, body, mind and soul, Earth, and all of creation. The Collective Consciousness is at the brink of a paradigm shift that we are all a part of, but with awareness, can now actively take part in.

Cellular memories compel us to perpetuate repeated experiences until we have
learned to choose from a higher good and with a shift of perspective. Realizing
that change is necessary and embracing the process will help support guidance
into the higher frequencies of the energy centers within each Chakra, beginning
with the Heart (Fourth Chakra) – The Bridge. Or as I like to call it, the
“Emerald Bridge.”

It is through Universal Love, embracing the value and beauty of
creation in its many forms, and dispelling of fear that we can come together
and heal our Earth. Living consciously and compassionately for all of creation
is crucial so that we may realign with the Cosmos. Universal Love and Harmony is
needed to bring us to higher frequencies of being in the New Age that is upon us. The time is now with no further excuses. The time is now for dispelling of all fear and to remember. The time is now for coming together, for realizing your authenticity, and to see beyond the veil. The time is now for unconditional compassion at the deepest heart-core level.

“The greatest wisdom is in simplicity,” Mr Barrios advised before leaving Santa Fe. “Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It’s not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It’s encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find your heart, and you will find your way.” Carlos Barrios is the author of Kam Wuj: El Libro del Destino, a book published in Spanish that explores Mayan teachings.

The Inspiration Behind Emerald Bridge:

In the human energy system, the source of powerful and creative, unconditional
love energy lies at the center of your chest in the Heart Chakra, or “Anahata,”
in Sanskrit. From its middle position as fourth in a system of seven chakras, it
is the balancing integrator of opposites (between body and spirit, male and
female, persona and shadow, ego and unity) and acts as an energetic “bridge”
between the lower and upper chakras. It is symbolized by a lotus of twelve
petals and the color green, with emerald as one of its associated gemstones. It
is from this place of peaceful centeredness that love emanates as divine power.

This journey of the heart was the inspiration behind creating a
compassionately conscious business that fuses visionary services and creations.
And so, Emerald Bridge was born to reflect and embody the divine and powerful
essence of the Heart Chakra and its integrative, healing synergy. It is my hope
for Emerald Bridge to also inspire today’s visionaries of the world. I believe in the importance of cultivating personal expressions of creative passion and actively manifesting visions into reality. I encourage you to take courageous steps in following your heart’s joy, and to shift into new realities of experience.

Emerald Bridge is an evolving business entity that melds visionary creativity, healing and heart with intention of cultivating authentic expression and bringing people together in joyful co-creation. The future of Emerald Bridge is continually evolving to encompass
new services, creations, offerings and events. To co-create, support, or share
ideas for collaborative projects, don’t hesitate to contact me.
