For a number of reasons “twenty-twelve” was never going to be an ordinary year. For one thing it’s a year in which we’ve seen a very rare “Transit of Venus”, that many would argue links to acknowledge the last few days of a very old 26,000 year Cosmic Cycle, that’ll end in a few weeks time.
The Mayan Calendar that’s set to end on the Winter Solstice of the 21st of December has certainly not gone unnoticed by “The Circlemakers” over the years. This forthcoming event has received a lot of attention from them, even to the point sometimes that one would think they’re promoting it! Not only has it inspired and prompted them to transmit some of the most powerful and cleanly executed designs we’ve ever seen, it also transpires that many hundreds of other formations that we didn’t think at first bore any connection to 2012, revealed many underlying one’s when unravelled…
mmm…Could this be why we’ve been on the receiving end of these almighty downloads over the years?…Is it their sole purpose to announce in a hundred different ways what might well be a significant life-changing event at the end of the year?
That might well be the case for we’re undoubtedly living within a period that’s known as the “End Times”. The guy that used to parade around the streets of the West End of London back in the 50’s and 60’s declaring on his sandwich board that “The End is Nigh” was probably right! But just what is about to end?…
It’s not only the Mayans that anticipated a forthcoming new era. Many other ancient and modern prophecies also suggested this, but whether it’ll take the form of a massive shift in consciousness or a direct hit from a massive comet remains to be seen! I personally think that any kind of shift will be more of a slow and subtle kind and something I feel sure we’re already partly experiencing.
As far as the crop circles are concerned they can never be read as doom-laden warning signs and I feel certain there not announcing a forthcoming doomsday scenario. They continually send us such positive and loving messages and they deliberately set out to give us the knowledge that’s necessary to create a different awareness. One of their prime concerns for those who are paying attention to them is to be ready for a huge change, but one that’s not to be feared. Crop circles have also played their part in helping to lift an engineered smoke-screen that we’ve been purposely subjected and indoctrinated into. We’ve been sold a reality that’s becoming more unsustainable by the day. With global food and economic disasters looming and with such widespread social and political unrest we’re firmly in the grip of the death-throes of these dark times.
Many thought that 2012 would be a really special year for crop circles. A year whereby there was bound to be a highly significant and outstanding bunch of circles that were all set to welcome in the new era. Some even thought that every field would get one! But despite all those longed-for longings that would see the most magnificent circles of all time appear, it came as no surprise that it really didn’t turn out that way. Don’t get me wrong though, 2012 was a great year and compared to last season everything was thankfully back on track.
July has always proved to be a busy month and we got off to a great start by having four formations arrive on the first! This particular one appeared near a busy section of the M4 near Swindon. It was a beautifully crafted “star tetrahedron”. Lots of fine lines were laid within the central triangle that were only a couple of stalks wide and certainly far too narrow to walk along.
Quite unexpectedly though this “star tetrahedron” which is also known as “Metatron’s cube”, changed into a “Star of David” three weeks later on the 21st.
As you can see from the photo phase two involved a number of sections within the triangles (that were originally composed of standing crop) were now flattened. Overall this formation that now had more emphasized inverted triangles offered us a simpler message of “As Above So Below”
If there was a competition for bizarre crop circle designs this formation would be a strong contender. But this depiction of a sort of squid-like sea creature or three fingered alien had quite a few surprises in store. Seen by some as a joke when they viewed the aerial, they completely changed their minds when they visited it because it was so neatly laid with many a central swirl displaying sheer perfection.
A couple of days later this rather puzzling effort arrived that strongly resembled a crossword plan. Were we meant to fill in the gaps with words in order to spell out a message? But if so, where are the clues and which way up and which way round should the puzzle be?
It’s also not dissimilar to those new types of bar-codes we now see more commonly but given the size of it laid out in a cornfield, you’d need quite a sizeable cosmic-gizmo to read it!
When you start playing around with the design though, you can at least come up with something…And whilst it’s not that important, at least it’s quite amusing. Place a mirror on one of the edges and the mirror image reflects either a little dog or an alien with a hat on!
This swirl of circles that appeared on the 31st of July was so rapidly cut out by a very angry farmer that photographers never stood a chance to photograph it. At first this design also proved to be a bit of a puzzle, but then it was discovered that hidden within it was a message written in binary 8 bit ASCII code.
Reading from the inside to the outside we can read ASCII 80 (P) 69 (E) 65 (A) 67 (C) 69 (E) which amazingly spells out “PEACE”. Obviously this has to be a real message from “The Circlemakers”…I mean, what are the chances of the guys from the pub working this one out in the dark!
What’s also proved to be a bit more puzzling this year is that here we were at the end of July and rather surprisingly it seems “The Circlemakers” have hardly mentioned a forthcoming “new era”. After all isn’t it the crop circles that over the last decade or so, have been responsible for sucking us all into the whole 2012 thing anyway? And by specifically referring to the Mayan Long Count cycle in many of their jaw-dropping efforts in the past, haven’t they directly and purposefully seeded awareness that something really major is about to kick off?
The 2012 season didn’t really turn out to be the grand finale that many were anticipating but then maybe “The Circlemakers” are of the opinion that over the last three or four decades they’ve said it all anyway. Surely we must have worked it all out by now…So as far as their concerned what’s left to say?…
This beautiful formation uniquely symbolises an endless knot which perfectly expresses the way in which we should all learn to perceive reality. It illustrates that everything is interconnected and harmoniously unified and just like a drawn circle it simply tells us that everything’s eternal…For there’s neither a beginning nor an end to it. And so on this level and to use a much maligned phrase…we really are all in it together!
Towards the end of the season there were some strongly influenced Mayan designs but none was as stunning in its form and ambition as this beauty that acted as a sort of season finale. It resembled a three-dimensional ringed cube that owed much of its design to its borders which were distinctly Mayan in character.
But whilst we’re in awe of such a grand design as it stands, we slowly become aware, like many of its predecessors, that there’s far more to it than meets the eye. To give just one small example…what’s the purpose of the thin line that’s inside the circle that borders the cube? The number four esoterically represents the Earth with its four cardinal points and if we look upon the cube on this occasion as representing the Earth, then might that line that strongly hints of another circle be trying to indicate the Earth’s position at a future date? The Mayan influenced cube also appears to point upwards so are “The Circlemakers” clearly stating that an imminent pole shift or a transition in consciousness awaits us?…Interestingly, researchers who have delved far deeper than I have arrived at the same conclusion.
In the words of the old Sam Cooke/Otis Redding song “A change is gonna come”…But look around and you’ll see it’s already happening and many people are now awakening to the disturbing realities of our world. The end of the Mayan Calendar on the Winter Solstice is a marker…a kick-start date for a change that’s inevitable. Mankind is awakening through the power of meditation and universal consciousness…and “The Circlemakers” that use our fields as a “Cosmic Bulletin Board” are assisting in that awareness. Our health and well-being is assaulted by genetically-modified foods and earth poisoning. Chemtrails and electromagnetic pollution are also contributors…so is it any wonder that cancer’s so common? Our Earth that supports us is a natural living environment but for how much longer under the threat of toxic oil-spills, nuclear disasters, deforestation, corruption, greed, and endless wars, can it possibly go on supporting us?
A change is going to come because it has to…it’s inevitable, even if a potential shift or any other such concrete event on the 21st of December fails to materialise. So far “The Circlemakers” have helped guide us towards a new era and I feel sure they’ll be around for a lot longer yet in order to encourage us to fully immerse ourselves.
And so all that remains for me to say is that with my positive thought that ever-more inspiring messages have yet to rain down upon us…long may they continue to reign!
