The Book of Destiny



This book by Carlos Barrios was the one suggested to me by the young man in the San Francisco airport. It was a good read, and promises new prophecies from Mayan elders in the very near future.

Mr. Barrios is a Shaman and Member of the Mayan Elders Council. He has studied his heritage for many years, living among sages of the Mayan culture. It is with this background that he brings us information, some of which has never been disclosed. The Mayans used 20 different calendars, only one of which ends on December 21, 2012, ending a cycle of 5,200 years. It is this calendar that is causing so much interest because of Mayan prophecies that have proven to be incredibly accurate. The war in Iraq, the Twin Towers, India and Pakistan, Israel and Palestine, the tsunamis, earthquakes, and floods are just some examples.

They believe we are reaching a transcendent period, predicted by many of the world's great traditions and visionaries. That the 2012 date is not the end of the world, but a time when one cycle will end and another will begin. The actual cleansing of the earth of much of humanity will happen during the years leading up to December 21, 2012, and can be avoided if we wake up now to what we are doing to Mother Earth.  


The years after this date are a time when harmony and knowledge will prevail. 

A large part of the book is about Mayan astrology. It was believed that each person is born in a snapshot of time, that we all have certain characteristics, flaws, strengths and weaknesses. The Mayan astrology is meant to help each person fulfill his or her destiny. I found it to be very accurate in regard to myself.

This book would appeal to anyone interesting in prophecy, the future, personal destiny, the Mayan culture, history, astrology, or the Pleiades, which is a star system that shows up, literally, in all religious books, and somewhere in the history of every country in the world. This will be a separate post, at a later date.

All in all, I'm glad I listened to that young man and bought this book. It will go into my personal library and referred to often, I'm sure.  If you ask for guidance - look for the answer - it might come from an unlikely guide.

I'm sure it must have been fascinating to read the prophesies written by someone who actually is a trained Mayan elder. So much of what's been sold up to now is just a lot of junk for the gullible that has no benefit at all.

Interesting! We are constantly looking to make sense of things, to see patterns and predict the next.

Thank you for this information.

I'm not so sure the cleansing of humanity from the earth is such a bad idea. Can we start with Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin? I can see a much more harmonious world without them.

I love books like this. Thanks so much for the review.
