The ancient Mayan culture gave us more than the Mayan cosmic cycles. They were an early test case for the process of physical that the entire planet is about to experience in the near future.

Their cycles work made us aware that December 21st, 2012 is when several long-term cosmic cycles of influence upon human consciousness come to a close, all on the same date, and new cycles begin. There is a 5,125 year cycle, a longer 26,000-year cycle, and some even longer-term cycles as well, all converging on that one date.The Mayan civilization existed up until 830 A.D, yet their astronomical
knowledge exceeded today’s level of knowledge in many ways. They not
only knew the precise orbits of the planets in our solar system, but
also the orbits of the stars in our galaxy. They even had cataloged
information on major cosmic events going back more than 400 million
years. The Mayan calendars are masterpieces which illustrate the
repeating time-spirals of cosmic cycles within cycles within cycles.

Then, the Mayans suddenly disappeared from their cities, leaving no
traces behind as to where they had moved and, yet, left their cooking
pots and utensils behind. There is no sign that they suddenly died from
some mysterious ailment and they did not move to another known location.
That means they didn’t relocate anywhere here on this physical earth.
Instead, they moved up a level from our third-density level of existence
into fourth density. They didn’t move away; they moved up.

Fourth density is less dense than our world, but it is still physical.
It is also home to the spirit realms or the afterlife. If you were a
physical human living in fourth density, you would find it relatively
easy to contact people in spirit bodies. They would live in a higher
sub-realm of fourth density than you, but you’d both be in the overall
fourth-density layer of existence on this planet.

The Mayans engaged in a prototype experiment to ascend from third
density to fourth density. They weren’t the only test group engaging in
such experiments. In , for example, the residents of Bandelier
and Puye Cliff Dwellings successfully ascended, as did the residents of
in . Those test groups moved from third density up
into fourth density.

The ascension that is about to happen on Earth in the near future will
be very similar and, yet, it will be different in one major respect. We
won’t be leaving our old world behind to move into a new one. Our world
will ascend along with everything in it, including us.

Our entire realm of existence will increase in frequency and move up
into a fourth-density frequency band. This time, the cooking pots and
utensils won’t get left behind; they’ll come with us, as will everything
else in our reality.

When this occurs, people who are alive in physical bodies will
experience physical ascension, right after those in the afterlife
experience their ascension to a higher sub-realm of fourth density. In
fact, they’ll vacate the sub-realm that we’ll be moving into.

The nature of this global ascension was foreseen as long as two
millennia ago by Jesus, who even foresaw the sequence of events. He said
that, in the twinkling of an eye, the dead shall be raised and we shall
be changed. But first, he said, the ‘dead’ shall rise and then we will
be caught up together with them in the ‘clouds’ (i.e. higher realms.)

So, the ‘dead’ – the spirits residing in the afterlife – will first rise
to a higher sub-realm of their fourth-density existence and then we
will be moved up into fourth density.

This upcoming transformation of our world into fourth density is
referred to as the Ascension, the Rapture, the Resurrection, or simply
as The Shift. Today, we think of The Shift as the phenomenon where
everything is changing very quickly. In the future, however, The Shift
will be looked back upon as the day the world suddenly changed or ‘rose
in the heavens.’

The Shift will occur when the time is right for humanity to handle the
experience. This means, when a critical mass is reached in the emerging
New Reality consciousness. Fourth density is a heart-centered frequency
band of consciousness. When enough people operate in that level of
consciousness, then humanity will be ready to make the mass shift into
fourth density.

Percentage-wise, the number of people required to reach the tipping
point is small because higher consciousness has proportionately more
influence on the global mind atmosphere than the lower frequencies.

After 2012, promoting widespread New Reality consciousness will be a lot
easier then before, as the old cycles will have finished and the
positive influences of new cycles will be in effect. That means that
your efforts to change the world through positive thought and action
will be working in a positive environment instead of the old, decaying,
end-of-cycle environment.

Every step that you take to foster heart-centered consciousness within
yourself and others affects the global mind atmosphere profoundly as we
work towards that tipping point.

When the global ascension of The Shift happens and the New Reality
blooms, it will become the most wonderful transformation in recorded

It will be remembered as the time when humanity literally built heaven
on earth!
