In celebration of the 6th birthday of Healthy Wealthy nWise Magazine (the first issue debuted in May 2003) and the significance of May 2009 in the Mayan Calendar (which you’ll learn about in the next article by Carl Johan Calleman), Ric and I have decided to add a column to the magazine which reflects one of our more “hidden” passions – the discovery or re-discovery of “lost knowledge”.

Let me give you a little background…

Ric and I have been following the Mayan calendar for about 5 years now and have noticed great synchronicities in our lives as a result.

It has helped us understand one another better in our business lives as well as our personal lives – he’s a “blue hand” meaning he lives to get things done and is all about transformation and accomplishment, whereas I’m a “white wind” and am all about breaking down old barriers to clear the way for something new, as well as refining what is possible for ourselves, our businesses, and humanity as a whole.

The calendar has helped us make better decisions with relation to timing – we’ve discovered that pushing to make a deadline isn’t always the best way to go, and we’ve also learned that a lot of times when you’re having one of those “I don’t feel like doing ANYTHING” sort of days, often those are the “idea” days and you’re not SUPPOSED to be DOING anything anyway.

In general it is an ancient system for time keeping, tracking the energies of the planet, and guiding our interactions with the greater cycles, which was pretty much lost to the majority of the world until the 1980s.

To get more information on the calendar I’d suggest starting the same place I did –

But the point of this article isn’t really to give you a primer on the Mayan Calendar. It’s to address the most famous aspect of it that I’m sure you’ve heard of – and if you haven’t you’ll start hearing A LOT about it in the next few months, through mainstream news, media, and Hollywood – I’m talking about the END of the Mayan calendar on December 21, 2012.

There’s a lot of speculation out there – Hollywood films predicting disaster, mayhem, the end of humanity, the return of aliens, etc. are in the making. Events based around a prophesied “Great Spiritual Awakening” abound, and of course there is the crowd who says this is just another Y2K scare designed to promote mass hysteria and that there is absolutely no significance to 2012 at all.
So what the heck are you supposed to believe?!?

That’s what we asked ourselves too, so we started researching and connecting with some of the top experts in the world on the 2012 phenomenon.

The result?

To begin with – this column.

The purpose of it is to give you the straight talk from the experts themselves – unedited, unbiased, without agenda. There’s a lot of misinformation out there, and very little that takes a true investigative approach. Over the coming months we’ll be interviewing these experts and making available some of their best research and information to you so you can make your own decisions about 2012 and how it may or may not affect you and your family.

Some of the content will be motivational and upbeat – some won’t. We’re not going to sensor the tone because we want you to have the full story. If the content is negative and feels bad, note that in yourself and ask yourself if you want it to be part of your paradigm. If it’s negative but rings true, note that as well. If it’s upbeat and positive and makes you feel great – FANTASTIC, but if it’s upbeat and positive and feels woo-woo or Pollyanna-ish, pay attention.

Trust your intuition.

We’re going to be doing the leg work and the research, all you have to do is take it in and decide what works for you.
In addition to the column we’ll be launching 2 new websites to give you more in depth information about 2012 as well as to give you a place to connect with other people who are exploring what it means to them as well – but we’ll tell you more about that in the coming months.

Right now I invite you to join us on the journey by starting out with the next article by Carl Johan Calleman – one of the world’s leading experts on the Mayan Calendar. He’s got some interesting information about the significance of this month and the pivotal role of the energies at play right now…

Sit back, strap yourself in, and enjoy the ride!
