Numerology-Lead-an-Enlightened-Life-Mike-Madigan-RG1While everyone is panicking over December 21, 2012, (when the Mayan calendar cycle “ends”)…
 
I’m looking at March 31, 2013 instead.
 
 
Why?

Because that’s when the ‘Tzolk’in‘ calendar ends.

The what?

So what is the Mayan Calendar? The calendar was constructed by an advanced civilization called the Mayans around 250-900 AD. Evidence for the Maya empire stretches around most parts of the southern states of Mexico and reaches down to the current geological locations of Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador and some of Honduras. The people living in Mayan society exhibited very advanced written skills and had an amazing ability when constructing cities and urban planning. The Mayans are probably most famous for their pyramids and other intricate and grand buildings. The people of Maya had a huge impact on Central American culture, not just within their civilization, but with other indigenous populations in the region. Significant numbers of Mayans still live today, continuing their age-old traditions.

The Mayans used many different calendars and viewed time as a meshing of spiritual cycles. While the calendars had practical uses, such as social, agricultural, commercial and administrative tasks, there was a very heavy religious element. Each day had a patron spirit, signifying that each day had specific use. This contrasts greatly with our modern Gregorian calendar which primarily sets the administrative, social and economic dates.

Most of the Mayan calendars were short. The Tzolk’in calendar lasted for 260 days and the Haab’ approximated the solar year of 365 days.

One is called the ‘Haab’. That’s the one with 365 days. (And that’s the one everyone’s talking about.)…

The Haab’ comprises eighteen “months” of twenty days each, plus an additional period of five days (“nameless days“) at the end of the year known as Wayeb’ (or Uayeb in 16th C. orthography).

Bricker (1982) estimates that the Haab’ was first used around 500 BCE with a starting point of the winter solstice. The Haab’ was the foundation of the agrarian calendar and the month names are based on the seasons and agricultural events. For example the thirteenth month, Mak, may refer to the end of the rainy season and the fourteenth month, K’ank’in, may refer to ripe crops in the fall.

The Haab’ month names are most commonly referred to by their names in colonial-era Yucatec (Yukatek). In sequence, these (in the revised orthography) are as seen on the right: Each day in the Haab’ calendar was identified by a day number within the month followed by the name of the month. Day numbers began with a glyph translated as the “seating of” a named month, which is usually regarded as day 0 of that month, although a minority treat it as day 20 of the month preceding the named month. In the latter case, the seating of Pop is day 5 of Wayeb’. For the majority, the first day of the year was Seating Pop. This was followed by 1 Pop, 2 Pop … 19 Pop, Seating Wo, 1 Wo and so on.

Inscriptions on The Temple of the Cross at Palenque shows clearly that the Maya were aware of the true length of the year, even though they did not employ the use of leap days in their system of calculations generally. J. Eric Thompson wrote that the Maya knew of the drift between the ‘Haab’ and the solar year and that they made “calculations as to the rate at which the error accumulated, but these were merely noted as corrections they were not used to change the calendar.”

There are at least two inscriptions with periods of 1508 Haab from Palenque which equates to 1507 tropical years, or 550420 days. This gives the Maya approximation to the tropical year at being 365.2422 days, being more accurate than the Gregorian Year currently used across the world today. 1508 Haab also incorporates 29 full Calendar Rounds, and two codices, the Codex Laud and Codex Mexicanus also records the 1508 Haab intervals.

Wayeb’

The five nameless days at the end of the calendar, called Wayeb’, were thought to be a dangerous time. Foster (2002) writes “During Wayeb, portals between the mortal realm and the Underworld dissolved. No boundaries prevented the ill-intending deities from causing disasters.”

To ward off these evil spirits, the Maya had customs and rituals they practiced during Wayeb’. For example, people avoided leaving their houses or washing or combing their hair.

The “other” mayan calendar is called ‘Tzolk’in’. It has 260 days in a year.

Tzolk’in (from the revised Guatemala Mayan languages Academy orthography, which is preferred by the linguists of the Summer Institute of Linguistics; formerly and commonly tzolkin) is the name bestowed by Mayanists on the 260-day Mesoamerican calendar originated by the Maya civilization of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica.

The Tzolk’in, the basic cycle of the Maya calendar, is a pre-eminent component in the society and rituals of the ancient and the modern Maya. The Tzolk’in is still in use by several Mayan communities in the Guatemalan highlands. Its use is marginal but spreading in this region, although opposition from Evangelical Christian converts continues in some communities.

The word, meaning “division of days”, is a western invention coined in Yukatek Maya. The corresponding words used by the K’iche’ and Kaqchikel peoples of Guatemala, which have maintained an unbroken count for over 500 years, are, respectively, Aj Ilabal Q’ij ‘the sense of the day‘ and Chol Q’ij, ‘the organization of time‘. The actual names of this calendar as used by the pre-Columbian Maya are not widely known. The corresponding post-classic Aztec calendar, was called tonalpohualli, in the Nahuatl language.

And it, the Tzolk’in calendar, is going to end its 13th b’ak’tun (cycle) on the coming March 31st, 2013.

Now, the world is not going to actually end as some would have you believe…

But a great change (or crisis) will occur.

It’s not hard to see the signs leading up to it…

The 2008 crash… riots in Europe… conflict in the Middle East…

And layoffs, bankruptcies and investments wiped out…

But in every crisis is opportunity, as president John F. Kennedy once said.

My friends at The Elevation Group have been studying this crisis we’re in since 2008.

They’ve put together a video that will show you how much money you can make, keep, grow or lose in 2013…

Here’s the frightening truth.

2008 was only an “appetizer” to the main course.

Something bigger (much bigger) is coming in 2013. (I’ll tell you more about it in the next email)…

But until then, here’s what you need to focus on.

Next year, you may find yourself independently wealthy… or completely wiped out…

So watch this video to protect yourself and grow rich…

But the fact remains, the Mayan Doomsday Prophecy is purely based on a calendar which we believe hasn’t been designed to calculate dates beyond 2012.

Mayan archaeo-astronomers are even in debate as to whether the Long Count is designed to be reset to 0.0.0.0.0 after 13.0.0.0.0, or whether the calendar simply continues to 20.0.0.0.0 (approximately 8000 AD) and then reset.

As Karl Kruszelnicki brilliantly writes:

“ … when a calendar comes to the end of a cycle, it just rolls over into the next cycle. In our Western society, every year 31 December is followed, not by the End of the World, but by 1 January. So 13.0.0.0.0 in the Mayan calendar will be followed by 0.0.0.0.1 – or good-ol’ 22 December 2012, with only a few shopping days left to Christmas.” – Excerpt from Dr Karl’s “Great Moments in Science“.
