I write this entry on December 23, 2012 at 3:33pm on a flight from Cancun to Atlanta. As I started looking thru my photos my eyes began to tear up. Both from appreciation and a nostalgic sadness of a time and place i can never go back to. Femme fatal by thievery corp plays on my headphones, and yes, in her own way, she is. But that’s another story that will have to wait. My heart and mind have blown wide open and I finally have the patience to fully communicate all that.
Time. All we have is time. I now see a world beyond armegiddeon. Beyond destruction. Beyond competition. A world of compassion, sharing; a new paradigm of hope, art, and bliss. How do I know? Because I am that world.
After the 22nd came and went and I neither levitated, exploded, or transcended into pure light, I felt an immediate need to get out of the Yucatán.
There are many reasons I felt the urge to come back to the states ASAP. The biggest is that my Spanish sucks. I want to create a bond to this amazing place and the kind people who live here. I want to be able to understand their hearts and communicate mine. I couldn’t do that with my current level on Spanish – with the exception of the extremely simple conversation with the mayan man in Coba.
To me, it seems the best way I can honor a place is to know the language and the customs of the people. To be an asset to the community. I felt more of a liability in my current state.
I also want to go surprise my parents and show up there for Christmas. Personally, I could give a shit about Christmas, but it means a lot to my folks, so yeah, it’s about feeding that heart.
Also I have the new focus for my life. Not a crystal clear vision but more a direction. A way to move forward, a way to be as I walk. A way to play with a seriously loving heart. A message to share, a geometry to engrave upon the places I walk, a song to sing to feed the life that sustains me.
Its in your heart when you find it
If you make it there
You make it anywhere
Cuz it’s in your heart
That spaceship is about to take off… Take off
-starseeds; behind the sun
Ac Tah: the man, the Mayan, the legend…
As I think of the man, I think of his brother and immediately I tear up again. What an amazing pair. Ac Tah the speaker, the noble ambassador of the new Mayan movement beyond the past and more about the present and the future, the geometry, the movement. His brother, Ix shil, the quiet, the coyote. The man holding ground beyond the group, clearing energy, moving time and space. Both brothers with such kind eyes and a smile that beams pure love.
I almost weep as I think of the mans clearing dance at the pyramid of chichen itza on the morning of December 21st. His movements and flow clearing the way for us to move through a portal without obstacles.
Perhaps that is the best place for me to start, on December 21, 2012. Ac Tah and our group of loving family walked from the town of Piste where we had set up the geometric pyramid to create the new grid and made our way to the entrance of Chichen Itza.
We all wore the same shirt: purple with subtle tie dye and the words: the human being of the new sun in Spanish on back. The same symbol was prominent on the back of the shirt that we would soon lay out on the ground around the pyramid.
We gathered the day before at Ac Tah’s family compound in Merida. He stood before a white board and started drawing out the geometry we would construct around the pyramid we brought for the Synthesis festival.
Sacred Geometry & Network Nodes
Ac Tah shared some of the wisdom that he said he hadn’t yet shared at his other lectures and gatherings. He started by drawing something that looked like an antenna or circuit.
Then he put four together around what he indicated would be the pyramid and linked the outer edges of the circuit together with a circle.
To me, the design was instantly familiar. Though I’d never seen anything quite like it, the visual imprint on my brain already existed. I had created similar images in analog and digital form and it certainly had a likeness to the 4 quadrant medicine wheel traditional to many indigenous cultures, especially the Native American.
He explained that each of the 4 identical branches of geometry were surrounding the pyramid we would be building at Synthesis and that they could best be described as antennas.
Ac Tah then shared some of the intention and action we would be engaged in during the winter solstice of 2012. He shared with us a concept I had read about in several books about 10 years previous talking about earth geometry, lay lines, and sacred sites. He said that these nodes in the earth network were similar to the neural nodes of network of our brain.
Somehow I had never made the connection before between the similarity of all of the other fractal geometry inside our bodies and our mental process. Certainly when I look at the fractal patterns of branches and rivers I can immediately recognize the similar pattern occurring within our lungs, arteries and blood vessels. The similarity between the sacred sites on the planet (Mt. Shasta, Pyramids, Stonehenge, Lake Titicaca) and the way our conscious mind has been mapped onto our brain was a novel concept to me, and yet I immediately grasped the reality of it.
Ac Tah shared how over hundreds and thousands of years, those in power had gained access to indigenous wisdom of these spots on the Earth’s magnetic grid and had learned to harness and influence the greater consciousness of the planet. Some places by accident, and others quite intentionally, have found these original temples, pyramids, and shrines dismantled, destroyed, or demolished.
Ac Tah referred to these places and the stone structures that were built upon them as particle de-accelerators. These sites were intended to receive the constant transmission from the galactic core in the form of sunlight, x-rays, magnetic energy, and cosmic radiation and slow it down and anchor it in the earth to elevate consciousness. In the places where these once powerful monuments to galactic energy stood and received a steady flow of galactic energy, had now been replaced by cell towers, satellite dishes, military bases, or empty space.
It was the vision given to Ac Tah to construct new pyramids to harness the powerful galactic transmission that would be received during the alignment of December 22, 2012. We learned that 13 pyramids had been constructed: 10 throughout the Yucatan, 2 in the United States (Taos, NM & Santa Cruz, CA), and the 1 we were going to construct near Chichen Itza). With these 13 pyramids, we would be able to harness the powerful energy from the galactic core and root it into the planet so that instead of lasting 8 minutes, it could last 4-6 months.
I was getting excited about the possibility of this great change and the honor of finally discovering this group. My pilgrimage – in all of its uncertainty, challenge, and confusion – was finally clear. I was appreciative to be of service to this group, this man’s vision, and the bigger vision that I knew lived inside of me and many who had made the conscious choice to be born on this planet during this time.
There was also a bit of anger at the bigger unconscious mentality of our planet: the part that decided to deconstruct temples worldwide to construct in another location a church or government building; the part that through ignorance, immediately used to seek out destruction rather than understanding. I say “used to” because I have faith that we have planted and are growing the seeds for a more connected, more conscious future for this planet.
To think, there was a mindset thousands of years ago that had the collective understanding of the movement of our solar system through the galaxy and the collective vision to harness this energy at is most potent apex to transform the global mind and direction towards balance and conscious evolution.
It can be argued by some that the pyramids were used as a means of control by those in power over the masses, and there certainly is some indication of that in some cultures. But I believe the original blueprints that directed this construction had the greater good of the planet in mind, and even a natural technology that currently exists (though somewhat dormant until now) in our bodies and minds, incorporated into the structure and intention of all of these structures.
Ac Tah spoke next about the current condition of the mental and earth network as it existed until now. Not about conspiracy, but about a mentality dominated by power, control, isolation and materialism. Instead of suggesting we change that network, he simply showed us the way in which we would create new nodes on the planet, effectively taking power away from the old paradigm, and feeding a new: one of sharing, freedom, community and spirituality.
He spoke about the magnetic movement we would be performing within this sacred geometry framework that surrounded the newly constructed pyramid would be the power to activate these new nodes, and that this same procedure would be happening at all 13 pyramids for 24 hours, from noon on the 2012 Winter Solstice until December 22, 2012 just after noon.
My whole body began to buzz as he spoke and the translator filled in the holes of my limited Spanish vocabulary. I completely understood this concept not just in my mind, but my whole body. I saw all the aspects of my life that I truly resonated with aligning for the sole purpose of the work Ac Tah spoke of: graphic design, sacred geometry, mayan galactic time, and the body movements of swimming, yoga, martial arts, and qi gong.
He explained that by doing the magnetic movement, we were activating the original technology of the mayan pyramids within the human body. I didn’t know exactly what that meant, but I certainly felt it as true in my entire being.
Up until this point, I had been challenged by the general disorganization and disembodied leadership of the group. I know that Ac Tah had received a vision and had the need to share this vision. I know that an amazing couple had met him and poured their life’s savings into making his vision a reality. I met over a dozen people who had been called to be a part of this vision and had traveled with the man for between a few weeks and a few months.
I am aware of the general pace of those who are governed by the law of natural time: intuition, synchronicity, and listening to the elements for clear indications of when & where to move. I applaud it and have been moving in this direction in my life for the last 7 years. And yet, I know I walk the razor’s edge. I know that I am of little service to the world if I disappear into nature or have zero contact with “artificial” time or technology. I’m not against people who have transitioned into completely living outside of artificial time or technology, I am just clear for me that I am being called to be a bridge between the worlds, at least, for now.
In the two days I had traveled with and conversed with this group, there was a general unrest about the organization and leadership. Again, I’m not referring to Ac Tah when I mention leadership. The thing I most appreciate about the man is that he isn’t looking for followers. He is looking for friends. He isn’t looking to convert people. He is hoping to share what was shared with him with the entire planet.
Ac Tah’s bigger vision for 2013 is to travel around the world and continue to teach this work and build pyramids to build a new earth and mental network, and in doing so, elevating the level of consciousness, connectedness, and balance between humans, the natural world, and the bigger flow of the galaxy and spirit.
In hearing his vision and understanding what we would be doing for the next 3 days, I got clear that the vision he shared was bigger than this group, bigger than the leadership, and certainly bigger than me. I finally felt a sense of freedom in my direction in the world, or rather a clarity of which direction in which to move and a freedom to get there without any permission from anything other than my heart and spirit.
I am so appreciative in all that the leaders of this group have done to get us to this point. And as the experience unfolded over the next 3 days, I found myself challenged by a timeline that was very clearly spelled out, but very few of us stuck to. It seemed to be the same die-hards that were constantly working, showing up where and when we needed to, and looking around confused, wondering where the people who had asked us to be there were at, and what we were supposed to be doing to make this vision come together.
I’ve learned to surrender in my life. Flying standby is a perfect practice for that. And I found it very difficult to be so fired up and so passionate about a clear purpose that affects so much more than just myself. A vision and purpose that is, in fact, for the entire planet, and an opportunity that only comes once every 52,000 years. It is in this opportunity and in the disorganization of how unprepared we were for this momentous event that I found a deep disappointment, and ultimately, the biggest gift of my entire life.
