    The Mayan Code: Time Acceleration and Awakening the World Mind

    The Mayan Code:
    Time Acceleration and
    Awakening the World Mind
    Bestselling author Barbara Hand Clow shows how the Mayan Calendar is a bridge to galactic wisdom that fosters personal growth and human evolution
    • Unearths the meaning behind the calendar, its message for modern civilization, and what will happen after the calendar ends
    • Reveals how time acceleration is a manifestation of the acceleration of consciousness
    • By the author of The Pleiadian Agenda
    The Mayan Code is a deep exploration of how, with the end of the Mayan Calendar, time and consciousness are accelerating, giving us a new understanding of the universe. Using Carl Johan Calleman’s research, as well as the ideas of other Mayan Calendar scholars, Barbara Hand Clow examines 16.4 billion years of evolution to decode the creative patterns of Earth--the World Mind. These great patterns culminate in 2011, and then during 2012 and beyond major astrological influences will inspire us to attain oneness and enlightenment.

    The Mayan Code shows how the time cycles of the Calendar match important periods in the evolutionary data banks of Earth and the Milky Way Galaxy.
