2012 was supposed to be the end of the world, according to doomsayers’ reading of the Mayan calendar. Instead, it turned out to be a new beginning. The beat goes on. And so does the world.

For me, 2011 was the setup, 2012 the execution with a dramatic finish on 12-21-12 at the 12,700-ft high Pachatata Temple on Amantani Island on Lake Titicaca in Peru (see Amantani Initiation and Ascension)..



I may not have been fully aware of that at the time, but now in hindsight, I can assert that 2012 was “ascension on steroids.” At least for this writer.

Three years before, I wrote this essay which set expectations about what that seminal year 2012 might bring:

What this writer thinks is that the start of the new civilization may mean that a new breed of man may start to ascend to the fourth dimension (or fifth or sixth?).  Instead of the “ET’s” coming to us, as had evidently happened 5,000+ years ago, human beings will start to shape-shift into new dimensions that seem inaccessible to most people today.  (Yet there were more available in ancient times when man was closer attuned to the land and cosmos, according to the Peru mountain spirits). 


I wrote the preceding on Jan 12, 2009, including the above images. And when that seminal 2012 year finally arrived, I penned this piece:

Well, the (in)famous “2012” is finally here.  Now what?  That’s the question this essay will try to answer. What can we expect this year and beyond?  Is there going to be a “beyond?” 

Why such pessimism?  Because the Mayan calendar ends on Winter Solstice 2012.  Which many doomsayers jumped to interpret as the end of the world.  In other words, a catastrophe.

So let us right off the bat dispel than notion. Yes, 2012 is an end of a 25,626-year cosmic cycle.  And yes, major transformation and upheavals will take place. 

But it also a beginning of another era, hopefully a better one for mankind’s future.  That depends on us and the generations that will follow. We can influence the outcome.  Not with our brains or brawn, but with our hearts.

Here’s first a quick astronomy lesson for you about the galactic alignment in 2012:

This was followed by a succession of articles which, by the end of January 2012, formed the nucleus of the Stewards of the Earth group which was being born out of these stories.

Stewards of the Earth Group Born

And then, by the end of January, 2012, I announced the formation of the Stewards of the Earth group. Here’s a video about it.

The chartered members included some 50 shamans and other concerned earthlings. By the end of 2017, this group was to grow to almost 10,000 members from almost every country around the world.

During that first month of the year, I also planted dozens of trees and flowers on our property to help with creation at the ground level, not just ethereally. And I also communed with the animal kingdom, such as with Leo, our neighbor’s horse whom I fed carrots and apples every day.

You can access all of the 2012 Gaia Speaks messages and videos here. There hundreds of them, so be prepared to invest some time in learning what it takes to be a Steward of the Earth.


There were many healing ceremonies I conducted at the AHA, the sacred place at the Rainbow Shower, my Maui property, throughout 2012. For specifics, see the Stories from the Rainbow Shower (2012).


But a special mention should be made of a number of healing ceremonies we carried out throughout the year elsewhere around the world. They ranged from the Netherlands, to the Alps, to the Great Lakes, to the deserts of the Southwest, to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons, the Big Island of Hawaii, ending up on top of the highest lake in the world – Lake Titicaca in Peru.

Of all those, the Special Dual Mission for Peace and Harmony (Feb 24-Mar 7, 20120) in Europe deserved a special mention. Because it included not just the healing of the Earth at an Alpine hotspot between Italy and Austria, but also a peace mission to heal the enmity between people.

Part one: Creating peace & harmony among mankind; Part two: Creating peace and harmony between mankind and Mother Earth

Spiritual, Geomantic Aspects of This Mission (from gaiasteward.org)


Within this mission, which included my testimony at the UN War Crimes Tribunal at the Hague, perhaps the most magical day March 3 – a triple 3’s day on which I did the Alpine healing ceremony at Lago di Vernago in Italy.

Alpine Healing Ceremony Part 1: Innsbruck-Bolzano (Mar 3, 2012)

Alpine Healing Ceremony Part 2: At Lake Vernago (Mar 3, 2012)

Alpine Healing Ceremony Part 3: Film (Mar 3m 2012) 

At the end of that ceremony, could not believe my eyes. My spirit guides had teleported a herd of llamas from the Andes to the Alps. And you can see a video of that as proof. That segment begins at about the 8-min mark of the video:

Amantani Initiation and Ascension

And then the “grand daddy” of all these amazing experiences, and the and the grand finale of the whole year took place on 12-21-12 at the 12,700-ft high Pachatata Temple on Amantani Island on Lake Titicaca in Peru. Here’s my intro to that amazing story:

Is it possible to ascend to Mastery while still in a body? Up until 12-21-12, I would have said “no.”  Now, I’ll just share the story of what happened on Amantani Island on Lake Titicaca that magical morning and let you draw your own conclusions.

Creating this multimedia story about a multidimensional event has been probably one of the most challenging projects I have ever done. It took five 18-hour days of concentrated effort. The story includes seven films which are comprised of over 40 video clips and countless still shots. 

I started the piece on my three long flights home from Peru on Christmas Day. I finished it at home on Dec 29. All through the project, I took extreme care to ensure that every important memory, every significant emotion, every powerful sound was reproduced as accurately as possible. At first, I thought I was doing it for posterity, to preserve a record of an extraordinary event – ascension – for all who were not there to witness it. Sort of like creating an artifact for a museum. In fact, I have been guided to preserve all the clothes I wore on 12-21-12 just for that purpose.

But now I understand that there is more to it than that. When you read this story and watch the videos, YOU will be also receiving celestial transmissions at a higher vibration. That’s why it is important for YOU to prepare for it properly, just like my Spirit guides had prepared me.  So open up your chakras, cleanse yourself, be at a quiet place, just like what you do when you meditate. Then dig in. Slowly. Deliberately. FEELING your way through the story.

That’s so that, when you watch “Feature Presentation” or “Coming Down from On High” videos, for example, they don’t end up as a shock to your system.

Just like athletes know to warm up first before putting maximum stress on their heart and lungs, and then also warm down after the performance is over, so should you warm up – ascend – and then calm down after perusing this piece. With that as a preamble – enjoy!

And now, here the video of the “26 MINUTES THAT CHANGED MY LIFE FOREVER”
