Fifteen years ago, Fernando Malkún, Barranquillero of Lebanese origin, left his architecture studies, which he had been pursuing at the University of the Andes (Bogotá) for almost a decade, trying to find answers to questions that came across his life path. During that journey he found the Mayan culture, and devoted himself completely to its study. Today, he is an internationally recognized expert on the subject, and continues to travel the world explaining the message that this civilization left for humanity.
Maria Paulina Ortiz:
Did the Mayans say that the world would end in 2012?
There is an absurd collective panic that is being generated on the grounds that they supposedly announced that the world would end in December 2012. This is not true. The Mayans never used the word ‘end’. Yes, they did announce a period of change, a large increase of the energy of the planet, which would cause 'destiny events', meaning definitive ones, in people.
When will this happen?
- It will not happen: it is already ocurring. It’s just that people are not gathering all the pieces of the puzzle to see the entirety of it. But we are in a wave of change as never before.
What is perceived, as told by the Mayans?
The prophecy announced that the planet would raise its vibrational frequency, which is a fact: this frequency, which is measured with the Schumann resonance, has gone from 8 to 13 cycles. All the planets of the solar system are changing. From 1992 to today, the poles of Mars have disappeared by 60 percent, and Venus is nearly twice as luminescent. So far we have been recording the sun for 300 years, and the largest solar storms have occurred in the last six months. There has been an increase of 425 percent earthquakes. Everything is accelerated from the geophysical and solar point of view. Our brain, which radiates its own waves, is also being affected by this increased radiation from the sun. This electromagnetic charge is the reason why we feel time passing faster.
You speak of 1992. Why this year? What happened there?
The essence of the Mayan prophecies is to communicate to us the existence of a cycle of 26,000 years, called 'the great cosmic cycle. " Everything, seasons, months, days, adjusts to that cycle. 13 thousand years ago, the sun was - as it is now again - radiating more energy on the planet, which caused the ice layer to melt. That layer fell into the ocean, and raised its level by 120 meters, and the so called 'Universal Flood' happened. The Mayans said that when the solar system is back once more to the 180 degrees it was 13 thousand years ago, the North Star shining on the pole, the constellation of Aquarius appearing on the horizon, on the thirteenth transit of Venus -which will happen June 6, 2012 - the center of the galaxy will pulsate and there will be demonstrations of fire, water, earth, air. They speak, specifically, of two twenty-year periods: from 1992 to 2012, and from 2012 to 2032, of intense change.
Why was this announced?
The proximity of death makes people rethink their lives, revaluate, and correct the direction it’s taking. This is something that happens only if something close to you occurs, or happens to you directly; it impacts you tremendously. This is what has happened with tsunamis, earthquakes, and all the natural events which we are experiencing.
Then, they are speaking of death.
They speak about change, an awakening of consciousness. All that is wrong in the world is being exacerbated with the objective of engaging the human mind to find solutions. There is a crisis of individual conscience. People are living 'destinaty events', whether it is in their relationships, their resources, or their health. It is a process of change that is primarily based on unveiling the invisible, and it is particularly affecting women.
Woman is who has the power to create the new era, because of her greater sensitivity. According to prophecies - not just Mayan, but many others - the coming age is one of harmony and spirituality. Things that are wrong will be resolved in the period that the Mayans call the "time of no time”, which will be from 2012 to 2032. Since 1992, the percentage of women who can preceive auras (healer beings) on the planet, has risen. Today, it’s 8.6 percent. Imagine that in 2014 it will be 10 percent. That would mean the beginning of a period of more transparency. That would be the direction towards a non-violent change.
But what we see today is an increase in aggression ...
Both polarities are intensified. Both paths are open, the negative, the dark, destruction, confrontation between men; and so is the growth of consciousness. There are several voices that are making human beings think about this. Since 1992, the hidden information of the Gnostics, Freemasons, the Illuminati, is now available for use in the process of self-change.
All this was left in writing by the Mayans, that specific?
No, not to that point. They said the sun was going to modify the conditions of the planet and create ‘ destiny events'. The sun has broken all records this year. Earthquakes have increased 425 percent. The temperature change is very intense: from 92 to date it has risen nearly a degree, as it has been rising for the past 100 years. Before, there were 600 or 700 simultaneous thunderstorms, now you can count them by the thousand. Previously, 80 lightning rays where recorded per second, now they fall between 180 and 220.
How did they know that would happen?
They had an extraordinary technology. On their pyramids were altars from where they studied the movement of the sun on the horizon. They produced graphs with which they could foretell sunspots, when thunderstorms would happen. It was a knowledge they received from the Egyptians, who, in turn, received it from the surviving priests of Atlantis, a civilization destroyed 13,000 years ago. The Mayans perfected this knowledge, and became the creators of the most accurate calendars. One called ‘the long count’ ends on December 21, 2012, and marks the exact center point of the period of 26,000 years. They knew these changes would arrive, and what they did was give this information to 2012 mankind.
Have these changes been raised only by them?
All prophecies speak of the same. The Hindus, for example, announce the time of change and speak about the arrival of an extraordinary being. The Mayans never talked about an extraordinary person to come and save us, but to grow in consciousness and take responsibility.
So what if you do not believe in that?
Believe or not, you will feel this within yourself. At this time, most of us are living a time of life assessment. Why am I here, what’s going on, where do I want to go? Just take a look at the growth in the search for spirituality, not of religion, because religion is not giving people any answers.
Has your personal life changed?
Fifteen years ago. I was extremely materialistic. My behavior today is very different. I wondered why I was here, for what, and for some special reason I ended up in the Mayan world. And I can say, that it is not about replacing false beliefs for other false beliefs. I removed a lot of stories from my mind, but I'm still on the third level of consciousness, which is dominant on the planet.
Who is higher?
There are people who are at a level 4 or 5. They are the least famous, of low profile. On one trip I met an extraordinary gardener, for example. These beings are in continuous service, affecting the lives of many people, but not publicly.
What must we do, according to this theory?
The universe is giving us an opportunity to restructure our lives, individually. The way to synchronize it is, first, not to be afraid, and to realize that we can change our consciousness. Quantum physics has already stated: consciousness modifies matter. This means that your life depends on what you think. The distance between cause and effect has diminished. Twenty years ago, in order to manifest something in your life, you needed great energy. Today, you think something, and it is happening in a week. Your mind is causing it. What we need is to find the answers, they are there.
