The Gathering of Elders in Sedona in April of 2015 in the Context of the Mayan Calendar

The shift in the Mayan calendar that took place on October 28, 2011 (according to the archeologists on December 21, 2012) has not yet been adequately debated. As the consequences of this shift did not conform to the expectations many people had, the discussion about the meaning of the shift was simply dropped by a large number of people and some even questioned whether the shift had had any consequences at all. Because the shift was so multifaceted, and occurred simultaneously at nine different levels, the expectations of people with modern worldviews were often thwarted and it may be only now that we can fully see its implications. In my view, the Mayan calendar remains the most important tool that humanity possesses to understand its past and future and the fact that this calendar was terribly misrepresented in the years prior to the shift does nothing to detract from its importance. There is indeed massive evidence from the course of history that shifts in the Mayan calendar lie behind all evolution of human civilization and its significant changes in thinking and acting. It is a calendar unlike all others in that it is not based on the material or astronomical reality, but on metaphysical changes affecting a global mind that human beings are in resonance with.

The fundamental fact that was missed by many was that the Mayan calendar describes a system of nine evolutionary waves running in parallel. Thus, the only ancient Mayan inscription describing the shift that we have now recently gone through, the Tortuguero monument 6, states that Bolon Yokte Kuh, the Nine-support entity or Nine-step entity, would be “witnessed in its full regalia.” Bolon Yokte Kuh is then the name for the metaphysical entity, or if you like Creation god, that in many Mayan temple sites are symbolized by a central nine-storied pyramid. Each of its levels, or steps, then develops a specific frame of the global mind and the sum total of these is referred to as Bolon Yokte Kuh. The purpose of creation is to bring humanity collective speaking to the ninth and highest level of the pyramid. The meaning of the inscription above is then that we will now be able to be in resonance with all the nine waves, “the full regalia”, of creation. The shift we have gone through was a multilevel shift affecting nine different waves of evolution simultaneously each of which affects specific aspects of human life. We should not be surprised that it brought us into a multidimensional reality and that its consequences were complex.

The appearance of “the full regalia,” of this creation god was thus not the result of a shift in a single calendar, where everything would suddenly change for the better (or the worse). Instead, it was a change affecting nine different creation waves simultaneously and the results of this shift may often seem contradictory. Hence, while there continues to be eruptions of terrifying violence, a spiritual awakening is at the same time going on that affects large numbers of people. The background to these conflicting effects of the shift is that people are in resonance with different levels of Bolon Yokte Kuh. Some are for instance in resonance with waves carrying a dualist global mind (see Fig), whereas others are in resonance with the unfiltered, and highest, ninth wave of the Mayan calendar system. This ninth wave, which was activated as recently as 2011, is what has brought an entirely new possibility of manifesting unity into existence and as it continues to run it will over time increasingly attract the world to this possibility. So far however the ninth wave has only been active for a few years and only toddlers have been fully born into it.

In some cases, people that have been spiritually prepared may just spontaneously find themselves in resonance with the Ninth Wave and manifest the divine will of unity consciousness that is now for the first time in history available to us. But overall, such a shift in consciousness, the transcendence of the dualist minds created by lower Waves on the nine-storied pyramid, will have to be actively intended. Then again, intention is not enough, most of us will fall short many times to attain ninth wave consciousness. Yet, we have to continue to attempt to reach the top of the pyramid and be in resonance with the high-frequency ninth wave of unity that creation is striving for. It is on this level that we may unify with All That Is, the Divine Spirit, and gain the insights of how we are to act as individuals in concert with The All and the Divine Plan. Only such a unity will provide the collective path for the Return to the Garden of Eden, or Happy Hunting Grounds, depending on our particular cultural backgrounds.

Hence, things will not suddenly change over night at a particular date. For a world of harmony to be created from this multidimensional reality, and humanity to Return to the Garden of Eden, it will be necessary that people intend to be in resonance with the Ninth Wave and create a new social and mental reality based on the unity consciousness that this Wave carries. This, I believe, is the context of the gathering of elders in Sedona in April of 2015, a metaphysical context that is different from what it was like before the shift in the Mayan calendar.

Exactly how to attain this state of unity will depend on where we are as individuals, but some awareness of an otherworld guiding us humans may be helpful. Another thing that should be pointed out is that a mental state of unity, or Oneness, does not mean sameness. Instead, the gathering in Sedona in April of 2015 is about diversity is unity and honoring the varied cultural expressions that humanity has produced in different parts of the world. It is about coming together as one and leaving behind, or at least set aside, the kind of rejections of or condemnations of “otherness” that for millennia were generated by lower dualist levels of the nine-storied pyramid. In my own understanding, we at least now, after the 2011 shift in the Mayan calendar, have a possibility of manifesting diversity in unity with full appreciation of our individual differences that never existed before. The activation of the ninth wave meant the beginning of a new possibility of unity for humanity, and as we work towards it, we will over time increasingly become able to manifest it as a reality.

Reaching the ninth wave consciousness, where because of its high frequency things just seem to manifest very quickly, is about what shamans would call removing the veils to the world of spirit. It is about unifying with the divine and following its guidance and setting the will of the ego aside. The ego is not an eternal part of the human being, but a product of lower waves of our climb of Bolon Yokte Kuh. Now, after the activation of the ninth wave, we may begin to transcend it. You may say that the ninth wave is about experiencing that all things are connected and follow through on this insight in all of our actions. This is all possible, but what it will take of us is to perform ceremonies and other spiritual practices that honors, and help us attain a state of mind beyond the dualist and the downloading of energies that are truly divine in origin.

As part of this collective process the Sedona Gathering will be part of, and help organize a global meditation: “Spirit of the Earth” on Earth Day of April 22, honoring unity in diversity by manifesting a global medicine wheel including the four corners of the world. The global Medicine wheel will provide a common context for people wherever they are in the world to participate in the Spirit of the Earth Meditation. It is a means for everyone to be connected with everyone else as well as to the Spirit of Our Earth. In some places Medicine wheels may also be created locally or regionally, but a wide variety of ceremonies may be created to honor the Spirit of the Earth depending on what feels right to local organizers and individuals across the world. A map has been created for this purpose at where participants may find out about locations where ceremonies are taking place.

But for unity to become durable, and continue to manifest as parts of our everyday lives, it will need to be grounded in our physical reality. The transformation we undergo must not only be an inner one, but also manifest in the external world of our social and technological reality. The state of consciousness of the Ninth Wave must be anchored in us and continue to be manifested in unison with others. For this reason the elders at the gathering in Sedona will also discuss the future of energy technology (see to solve the climate crisis. Another initiative is the One People Tribal Nation Charter (see ), open to everyone favoring true sustainability. To give structure, and permanence, to the honoring of the earth a clan system, with clan mothers as leaders, is being created for those adhering to this tribal charter. This again allows for diversity in expression with a primary loyalty to the common earth of the human race.

It is because the ninth wave now has been activated and Bolon Yokte Kuh, that is the calendar system in its totality, can be “witnessed in his full regalia” that time has come to manifest projects such as those above. The possibilities of the world have changed, but it is up to us to choose the possibilities that are the most aligned with the Great Spirit, or the divine. In the final analysis, this will not happen without our intentions to create something new that consistently serves the Earth and the spiritual unity of humanity.

  1. Carl, Great article and I look forward to being at The Gathering of Elders in Sedona in April. This Is important especially at this time. All the best

  2. Carl I love your books and have been a disciple of your teaching people I know your teachings on the mayan calender. I met a very powerful person who remembers his past lives and he said the gregorian calender is off by 10 years. That actually we are really in 2005. Which means we are in the 4th Day. Anyway I feel this is right on as we are moving along in time. God bless.

    1. Hello Philip,
      The idea that your friend brings up is quite common, but is based on a misunderstanding.
      What does he mean by saying that the gregorian calendar is “off” by ten years. It is just
      a convention in the first place. The only question is if the so-called GMT correlation
      gives a correct correlation between the Mayan calendar and the Gregorian calendar and I believe that it does.
      After the shift in October of 2011 we have entered a kind of multidimensional reality
      where all nine waves keep on running in parallel and so many people find it hard to
      relate to this. Depending on what waves we are in resonance with we will experience
      the flow of time differently.

    1. Yes, but the return of Christ could mean many things. To some it means the idea that a person on the outside come around and fixes things. To others, like myself, this is only a good metaphor if it is a symbol of the inner transformation brought by the ninth wave, which allows us to commune with the divine and act on this basis.I think it is only such a view that puts the responsibility where it belongs, on ourselves.

  3. I know what your saying to be true as I had a dream some years ago. I was at the base of a pyramid of nine levels .i began to climb at each level there were people sitting needing to communicate about their lives. I shared their journeys their stories with them. At each level this happened, until I reached the eighth level ,by which time I was exhausted emotionally and spiritually. Reaching the ninth level seemed hopeless I began to despair. Then from somewhere came a bus ,it took me to the top.on reaching the crown I entered . There I saw ali avatars represented beautiful music surrounded me candles lighted the space reverence was present to unity in diversity finally I beheld this bliss I had dreamt of. Having held the dream of unity and come to this stage its time for us to walk the same path to sing and dance our revenue in.thankyou for your contribution to this journey.

  4. Carl – I wonder why you have never referenced the Chaco Meridian in your writings? That is, the establishment of a series of ceremonial centers along the 108 W long. by the Anasazi. That is perfect trine (120 degrees) from your planetary midline at -12 E long. The care exhibited by the Anasazi to build on this axis would support your placement of the midline.

  5. We have 149 Temples linked to the Mayan temples today. These Mayans were the forefathers who wrote the history contained in Book of Mormon. This is a spiritual record for us. Light Cleaveth unto light.
