Leaving aside the human hype about the Inca prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor and their anxiety to realize it with their own hands, through ceremonies, etc., we can not ignore its existence and the hope it brings through a feeling of union and good understanding for all mankind.
Particularly I do not believe that the Pachakuti Inca has been completed in 1992, as believed by those who practice these traditions. For me, the last Pachakuti, that started five hundred years of darkness, began with the death of Atahualpa, in 1533. At that time the Tahuantinsuyo, the Inca empire, was literally buried in the church of Cajamarca (Peru Current). (The body of Atahualpa was taken several days later, surreptitiously, by his soldiers)
As we approach 2012 we note that many prophesied cycles are coming to a conclusion, while many others are commencing. The most important cycle within the Quechua/Inca tradition of Peru would have (as they believe) recently completed. What does it mean? Pachakuti, a continually rotating cycle of 1000 years that divides into two sub-cycles of 500 years of darkness followed by 500 years of spiritual light. The last 500 year period of darkness began (as they believe) in 1492, a pivotal year in the destiny of the Americas, and ended in 1992 (for me 1533-2033).
In any way I have to agree that changes are already occurring since 1992, although still very subtly. As they believe, 1992 has triggered the release of the transformational frequencies which are necessary to realize the Pachakuti, so that a new and higher planetary consciousness can replace the old one. This transformation is especially important for all Americans as it coincides with an Andean Prophecy that predicts that the Condor will fly with the Eagle and peace will reign throughout the Americas. This prophecy foretells a time that is not new. In ancient times the Condor ( national bird of Peru) that symbolizes all South Americans, flew side by side with the Eagle, that represents all persons of North America. That time, peace and love reigned throughout the Americas.
There is one ancient Inca prophecy which proclaims: "When the Eagle of the North flies with the Condor of the South, The Spirit of the Land, She will Reawaken"
