The dates Dec. 12, 2012, or 12-12-12, and Dec. 21 - 12-21-12 - are significant for many.
"Twelve is a significant number in numerology, and 12-12-12 will be the last triple digit date we will have in our century," said local psychic medium Deborah Noonon. "It is the trinities of trinities."
If you add the numbers one and two it makes three - and there are "three 3s" in 12-12-12. "That implies a plan for cosmic harmony," she said.
The Rev. Deborah Noonon with crystals to be used for the 12-12-12 “crystal activation.'
Noonon -also known as the Rev. Noonon - is the owner the Center Of Eternal Light in North Fort Myers. She does readings, spiritual counseling, programs and more at the center.
Noonon comes from a long line of family spirituality, including her great grandmother, Mary Ann Cooper, who was a celebrated spiritual advisor to British royalty. (When Cooper died, Rolls-Royces lined the procession in Europe, with owners paying respects.)
Of the numerology surrounding the two December dates, she said, "Both dates are gateways or opportunities, opportunities to accelerate our spiritual paths. In a nutshell, the holidays could be the best you have ever experienced."
There has been much fear around these dates, she said, especially 12-21-12 - the end of the Mayan calendar, which some doomsday sayers say is the end of the world. But most spiritualists, including Noonan, belive it is a positive day.
"I believe there is a higher, more positive plan," she said. "It will always workout, it is always unfolding.
"Twelve represents spiritual foundation, spiritual perfection and spiritual completion," she added. "12-12 will be the gateway of what will take place on 12-21. It's important what you are doing on these dates, using positive energy, so the focus will help you on your spiritual progression."
The metaphysical communities are all celebrating today, 12-12-12, with "a crystal activation."
"It is a day of massive release of crystal energy around the earth. And there is a new moon on Dec. 13, and with the new energy coming in, it is like Christmas early."
In the U.S., Sedona, Ariz., known as the most peaceful vortex in the country to many, Mount Shasta in California and Bimini in the Atlantic Ocean will be hot spots for that crystal activation.
"It will also be here at The Center of Eternal Light. It is a global thing," she said.
A little known fact - Arkansas will play a big factor in the event. It has the largest single deposit of natural quartz crystals in the world.
"In Brazil they are spread all over, but in Arkansas it is in the entire state, going down 177 miles," she said.
She will be doing a special program tonight at the center at 7:30.
"On Wednesday, Dec. 12, we are going to have a whole program centered around tuning into these energies."
The cost is $15. She's expecting a full house, but you can call to see about space.
On Dec. 21, the dreaded 12-21, she will open the center for meditation.
"The date is significant because our solar system is moving into the center of our galaxy," she said.
Noonon said her heart's desire is that people release any of the fear around the date.
"I personally think God has everything handled," she said.
She said the Mayans were known as tremendous timekeepers. She believes they started a new calendar the next day, "which will usher in 1,000 years of peace,"
The date marks the end of an almost 26,000-year cycle.
"We're moving into a whole new cycle, and while a lot of people are predicting cataclysmic events, it is simply that - the end of a cycle, definitely ending much better. I feel that, and it's like a 'Disneyland feeling' like when you first enter the park - the joy."
