NATIVE VILLAGE 2012 NEWS ARCHIVES

"All of the prophesies of the world, all the traditions, are converging now. There is no time for games ... it is up to the people our attitude and actions will determine how harsh or how mild [these changes are.] In fact, these converging native prophecies call for people of the light to come together and unite in some way in the service of healing and survival.

In the new era, a "heavenly energy" will infuse the planet and assist a transition to peace, unity, love, sharing and respect. Separateness and divisiveness will end, and oneness will prevail."    Carlos Barrios, Mayan Elder
