3rd The Harmonic Convergence; Healing the World

A thousand butterflies on one side of the world beating their wings cause a natural disaster on the other side, This has been theorized and called “The Butterfly Effect” . It is almost laughable that a butterfly could cause something far beyond its’ capacity. The same goes for a single rock placed in the right spot in the river could change the course of the water. On August 16th 1987, Over a 144,000 “butterflies” beat their wings in unison causing a shift in the psyche of the world. “Rocks” are placed into the river of the world to harmonize it with the path of the universe. This great 25 year cycle is called the Harmonic Convergence. The shift is apparent, the effects far-reaching, and as of yet is incomplete until 2012. August 16th wasn’t the beginning though; it began a long time before then. The New Age Movement, the power behind this momentous event, was organized at another time and place. The first stage of the “New Age” began with the Theosophical Cofounder, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky,(World Almanac 160) who announced in 1970 that, “a New Age had arrived” (Britannica 629). Her ideas were upheld by followers such as David Spangler, who founded the movement, and Annie Besant. The New Age Movement “adhered to esotericism” (629), which is a religious standing based on mystical knowledge that was taught in Western civilization such as Tai-Chi and I-Ching, a divinatory practice. New Age followers generally believe in Psi, in this context, not pounds per square inch, but refers to “all psychic phenomena, experiences, or events”(Varvaglis 1) that are related to the “psyche” or mind, and “cannot be explained by established procedures or principles”(Varvaglis). This would include Telepathy, ESP, Astral Projection, Telekinesis, Poltergeist and other paranormal occurrences. The New Age is characterized by the belief in alternative healing. Alternative healing is a vast and far reaching subject but is generally upheld that “the body will heal itself, if given time”(Weil 388) or the right treatment through natural resources. Some of the main alternatives are through herbs including poultices, concoctions, aromas, and even homeotherapy. Homeotherapy is the “use of minute amounts of substances to create the same symptoms as those of the disorder” (388), expelling the original problem and leaving a more manageable problem. Some other forms of healing are the use of stones or sticks on important energy meridians throughout the body, or even faith and psychic healing, which is less accredited in the science world. The New Age lived and thrived with the counter-culture, but calmed down as time went on. Nowadays you find the New Age in jewelry, bookstores, booths, religions, and more importantly the media (629), spreading its philosophies of love and unity with self and universe. This New Age gave the throttle the Harmonic Convergence needed for lift-off and for the event’s exploration to a New Age. The New Age might have been the power behind the Harmonic Convergence, but it was truly the signs in the skies and the coincidences in the calendars that pointed the direction and lit the way to and through this ongoing event. Astrology is the study of how the celestial bodies in the sky correlate to our lives and the events in the world (McIntosh 827), most accomplish this through the use of horoscopes, charts based on date of birth, found in almost every newspaper and believed in by “over one-fifth of adults” (629) Most astrologers agree that these newspaper horoscopes are highly inaccurate or superficial. The true horoscope is effected by four things:”the Earth, the Planets, the Zodiac, and the Houses (the 12 divisions that make up the earth)”(826-827). The reason I bring up

Astrology is that on August 16th, the planets did something very rare, they aligned and not only that, the Age of Aquarius was ripening from its beginning seventeen years previous. Long has man looked to the sky for answers and have based how we keep time by that familiar sky and created calendars to track the passage of time. There are older calendars that have been found, two of which coincided on the beginning of the Harmonic Convergence. One, being the Aztecs, who made their home in Mexico through the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Centuries (Nicholson 999), had a calendar of 52 year cycles. This calendar was an intermeshing of a 260 day religious calendar to mark dates of sacrifice, and a solar calendar of 365 days, which was the most accurate calendar till now. On the end of the 52 year cycle which is their version of a century, they would put the fires out and on the dawn of a new cycle, they would make a sacred fire by putting a fire in the chest of a man or woman, and then they would have a festival of lights.(999) The other being the Mayans ,who were a group of Indians who lived in parts of Central America and South Mexico.(Sharer 1) They are a marvelous group, they lived by a different time system of thirteen hours and twenty minutes (Arguelles) instead of the widely-accepted twelve hour and sixty minutes. They lived by three calendars that interlocked, one being a 265 day calendar , a 28 day lunar calendar, and a 260 day ritual calendar. They had 18 regular months and a special five-day month called Wayeb but the days of this month were unnamed and considered very unlucky.(Chandler 96) Their two calendars worked together like a clock and went in a cycle of 13 Heavens and 9 Hells. These great calendars both Mayan and Aztec were what helped Arguelles to pinpoint the day of his great convergence. On August 16th, the Mayan calendar 9th Hell ended (Arguelles) and the Aztecs fifty-two year cycle ended as well. Thus began the countdown till 2012, the end of the Great Cycle of History, Cycle of Evolution” (Hopkins 1), and the “End of the Mayan Calendar” (96). Thus we see that the Universe itself called for the Harmonic Convergence so that we may ascend or evolve spiritually and consciously. It was the first Harmonic Convergence in several centuries. A “simple art teacher”(629) observed these events and felt compelled to honor the wishes of the past and the universe by announcing the 25 year long Harmonic Convergence (Yashah 1/Hopkins 1), he believed the world was out of balance and this was the critical date to send a beacon out for healing, harmonization, and evolution (Arguelles 1). So on the dawn of the 16th, the world had gathered to many occult, historical, and powerful places to observe this event, places such as “Machu Picchu, Chaco Canyon, Stonehenge”(Maclaine 35), the Great Pyramids, and the “main gathering center”(Geissinger 1), Mount Shasta, California” (35). On the dawn of the 16th, many arose, meditated, prayed, or whatever they felt was called for in this universal attunement. There was, as described in Laughing Wild, at the gatherings many who meditated on stones, or singing and dancing, or shouting aloud their love for the world and others. Anomalies happened all around the world, one abnormal anomaly was in one woman’s home, when her new TV started to channel an angel with a message. The message was passed through a medium to the people in a letter. This event was covered by many Newspaper companies from New York to Shasta, California (Yashah 4) That night accounts ,mainly from Mount Shasta, attest to “UFO” (Chandler 85) sightings all over. When the people had dispersed, they had made a change that was self-perpetual and gaining momentum, There are now many “New Age groups located on Mount Shasta including a Zen monastery”(Geissinger 1). The beat of those focused wings had made a

difference, the measurable energy of the planet has risen from 8 to 13 hertz per second (Hopkins 1). This increase follows the Fibonacci series, which was discovered by Italian scientist and mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci (Meisner 1). This series is in ratio to phi. Phi is considered to be harmonious to the universe (Hopkins 1) and is found in many average day items such as flowers, pinecones, cauliflower, passion fruit, and. Snail shells (Meisner 1).The gift that keeps on giving like the Harmonic Convergence. The Harmonic Convergence still continues, the beat of the wings are heard and the rock that was placed now shifts the current. We all can feel it, although we may not consciously perceive the fact but it is there nonetheless. The shift in sight, mind, and action continues to move towards a new and peaceful world. A world that is harmonious and ascended in its’ collective consciousness.
