Those of you who know me, know I am a true believer in the Mayan and Hopi Prophicies and that 2012 will be a time of hard change for all. Not the end of the world, but a time of socio-economic change that will have major impact on all of us an most of it in a not very fun way.... All ya have to do is take a look at the idiots in DC and other govt's world wide screwing up as fast as they can to see the horrific changes coming.

     I am also a believer that we need to be self reliant and prepared for the worst.

     One of the issues that is probably going to affect us all in a major way right off the bat, is a huge increase in prices and lack of availability in food. When the mega corps no longer grow and it is too expensive to ship food, the first losers are us...hence my first preperation....have your chow stashed.

     A basic food stash will keep many of us alive when the chips are down, and BASICS if bought right now, will not put ya in the poor house.  Something o consider, dried rice and dried beans (Carbo's and Protien) are currently cheap, store easy and last. They are also the basics of nutrition. Not the whole deal by any means but in will keep yer butt alive. If you figure 2 oz dry of each, per day, pr person (including kids and babies as they will not be small forever...) figure a 50 LB bag of each/ per person to be aprox a years supply of basic survival rations. Obviously any other stashed food is a help, be it dried, canned etc. Those of you like me, omnivore, may want to consider hunting as as option as well.

     Another survival tactic, stash seeds. Any and all edible plants that you can put away seeds for will pay huge benefits in the long run. Store them in an air tight dry container. One note, if you can , get seeds that are NOT hybrids...try for old time or "heirloom" seeds. That is the kind that you can take the seeds from grown plants/ veg/ fruit and plant it. Hybrids rarely if ever have fertile seeds so they will not produce fruit in most cases.

Only those who jumped to conclusions (or were misleading/misled) thought that there would be a cataclysmic "end of the world" on 12/21/2012. That was a threshold, not an event, and Two Birds is precisely correct.

For those who were around in the 60's, you would have heard and seen the dawning of the new age, the glimmer of light that precedes the morning, beginning to shine through. We've passed through the dawn now, and it's just a matter of time. That should help us get a perspective on the idea that we are moving into the next age, not jumping through a portal.

Well, even though we are well past 2012, the info here is still useful for anyone willing to dig through the blog.....

True that, Natalie- pretty much sums it up in a nutshell. Exactly what the Hopi said.

Much quicker than reading books. ;^)

I see you posted this awhile ago. Have you read a book called the Mayan Ouroboros? It's a new one by Drunvalo Melchizedek. He talks all about the Mayan and Hopi prophecies....actually you should read The Serpent  Of Light first. You'll dig it if you truly believe. It's an amazing true story about my teacher's journey around the world, new things he discovered about our planets upcoming shift and special ceremonies he was apart of to help the Unity Consciousness of our Mother Earth. According to him all we need to survive is an open heart and an open fear only love....and Ancient knowledge will flow through us and be part of our lives again. Read his books! Seriously, I cant stop talking about how much his teachings have helped me and opened my eyes.

Beyond basic survival is everyday living. Although we cover that in the Living Well After the Earth Changes group, it is worth mentioning here because it fits into preparing for survival ahead of time. Survival is so much easier when we have the right tools. When you have mechanical power or electrical power (when you want it) generated by non-polluting internal combustion engines with a virtually unending fuel supply (including mobile vehicles), or gas for household use- cooking, lighting, and water heaters.

I realize many of us don't have the means to pursue this personally, but you never know who you might run into so it's worth knowing about.
These links will introduce you to biomass gas generation- the fuel of the future.
They are not intended to teach you everything you need to know, but to ground you in the concept and prepare you to do the research necessary to be able to make your own.
The options for acquiring a biomass gas generator range from building your own from scratch by learning the principles involved to buying a kit or prebuilt generator.
If this intrigues you, dive in.
