The Gifts of Hunab Ku
Who or what is Hunab Ku?
Hunab Ku is a name coined by Jose Arguelles, a modern day author and pioneer researcher of the Mayan calendar, for what the Mayans referred to as “The Galactic Butterfly”. In the Yucatec Mayan language, Hunab Ku actually means “Source – The One, Giver of Movement and Measure, the galactic center, God”.
The Mayans believed The Galactic Butterfly resides in the center of the Milky Way galaxy. To them, this Being symbolizes all of the consciousness of all creation that has ever existed in the galaxy. Butterflies also were representative of their ancestors that have returned to visit the physical. The symbol of The Galactic Butterfly is a powerful Mayan reminder of reaching out to actively unite with this consciousness.
Not only is the existence and location of Hunab Ku the basis for the Mayan calendar, the Mayans regarded Galactic Center as the ultimate adjudicator of the entire future of humanity. Cyclical energy bursts of consciousness from the Creator in the center of the Galaxy, they believed, is what directs everything that happens here on Earth. It is also where new stars and planets are born and is the gateway to other galaxies.
Some of these ancient Mayan beliefs have been clearly verified by modern day astronomers and quantum physicists not that long ago. They have recently become re-conscious that the center of the galaxy contains a black hole that swallows and gives birth to stars, and of the existence of low frequency radio waves emanating from it. Could it be that one of the purposes of this energy from the center of the galaxy is to give humanity access to the collective consciousness, where all knowledge from the mind of God is contained?

What does Hunab Ku have to do with the Mayan prophecy for 2012?
Throughout time immemorial, solstices and equinoxes have been considered important aspects of creation cycles. They were regarded as the time when gateways were opened to allow the passage of powerful cosmic energies to our planet. Every year during the winter solstice, for example, the Earth, Sun and the center of the galaxy (Galactic Center) are in alignment as seen from our perspective here on Earth.
However, a more perfect alignment occurs about once in every 26,000 years, the next one predicted to occur during the December 2012 solstice. Per John Major Jenkins, the galactic alignment of the 2012 winter solstice is “the alignment of the December solstice sun with the Galactic equator”, where the Galactic equator is referring to the exact center-line of the Milky Way.
The winter solstice on December 21, 2012 has special meaning because it is the last day of the Mayan Calendar. In addition, it is this alignment where not only the Earth, but all planets in our solar system, will be in direct line to receive the extraordinary cosmic energies being sent forth from the black hole, Hunab Ku, at Galactic Center.

What effect will the energies sent by Hunab Ku on December 21, 2012 have on humanity?
It is each individual’s choice as to what they want to make of these energies from Hunab Ku. While it is expected that there will be various forms of chaos, including climatic and planetary shifts, as we come closer to this auspicious date, the state of the human collective consciousness can either lighten the turmoil or increase it. Emotions of a low vibration, such as fear and anger, feed the chaotic state. However, high vibrations from love, service and compassion can ease the effects of these changes.
If we consider other fundamental Mayan beliefs, we learn how they deemed Hunab Ku as the Creator God of new beginnings. They also believed all things have a beginning and an end. Does the ending of the Mayan calendar portend a new age or the beginning of a new cycle? That is for each one of us to independently decide and, in fact, what you are convinced to be true will materialize in your physical world as proof of your truth, since you are the creator of your own reality, a reality based on your belief system.
According to the Mayans, Hunab Ku also unites what we on Earth have perceived for thousands of years as opposing forces, the essence of duality: masculine and feminine, conscious and unconscious, objective and subjective, analytical and intuitive, external and internal, right and wrong, etc. As we seek to raise our consciousness and make the soul connection to Source, we will be able to find the perfect balance in our dualistic natures, synchronizing them with the Law of Oneness.
As we approach the end of 2012, there are many reasons to remain positive about the December solstice being a herald of a Golden Age. Our understanding of God is continuing to evolve into a deeper level of knowingness. We can consciously, with intention, “plug into” the energy emanating from Hunab Ku to speed up our own awakening process.
When we awaken to who and what we really are, an invaluable, but widely acknowledged, benefit is to become re-acquainted with our own unique talents, gifted to us by the Creator at the time of our soul inception. These gifts are expressions of our divinity and are designed to further our own spiritual growth and facilitate our eventual return back to the Ultimate Creator, whilst also serving the rest of humanity and all of creation.
What are some of these wondrous gifts?
The ability to travel between dimensions and beyond time.
The ability to move matter instantaneously from one point in time and space to another.
The ability to manifest our thoughts and desires into the hard physical reality.
The ability to use universal telepathy and communicate with any of creation, anywhere.
The ability to suspend the laws of gravity.
I would like to end with the wise words of Bill Ryan of Project Avalon, “The abilities are important - but only as a litmus test about growing spiritual ability. They're not an end in themselves, and I agree that this is the greatest trap. ….they're fun and interesting. But they are absolutely not the point. It's awareness, action and responsibility that ARE the point.”
