The ancient civilization of the Mayans was once one of the most advanced cultures of the ancient world. The mysteries of the Mayan Pyramids, Mayan Crystal Skulls and Mayan Legends have endured for millennia. Now, there is a renewed interest in Mayan culture, particularly regarding the Mayan Calendar and ritual artifacts like the crystal skulls.
According to Mayan Legend, there will come a time when 13 ancient crystal skulls are reunited that can affect the Earth and the course of humanity. The story of Creation according to Mayan culture plays an integral part in daily Mayan living, so it is no surprise that the day the calendar ends plays an equally important role. This date is calculated as December 21, 2012 and there are many interpretations of 2012 Mayan prophecies.
Mayan culture specialist and Guatemalan crystal skull caretaker Lydia Trauttenberg travels the world sharing with people the importance of the Mayan heritage and what message it offers us for today. Lydia Trauttenberg believes, along with many Mayan elders, that crystal skulls may play a vital role in the reawakening of humanity.
