Looking Back on the Harmonic Convergence of Aug. 16-7, 1987

Posted by Admin on July 15, 2010

The Harmonic Convergence of 1987

The Harmonic Convergence of August 16-7, 1987 was a celebration of planetary quickening and rebirth, inspired by Dr. Jose Arguelles.

The Earth’s renaissance was predicted by the Mayans to start at this time and to culminate, at the end of a 26,000-year cycle, in the winter solstice of Dec. 21, 2012.

During this transitional period, the Earth would leave the Age of Pisces and enter the Age of Aquarius. Hindus knew this transition as one from the Kali Yuga or Dark Age to the Sat Yuga or Golden Age.

Jose Arguelles

By winter solstice 2012, the sun’s orbital cycle around the Pleiades star system would realign with the plane of the galactic center, which is known to the Mayans (I believe) as Hunab Ku, and produce a planetary transformation or  Ascension to the fifth Dimension.  (1)

My understanding is that the Mayan people learned their calendar from Quetzlcoatl, which I am led to believe is their name for Sanat Kumara, the planetary Logos of this cycle. Sanat Kumara is said to live on Venus in a higher dimension (much as we will soon live on Earth in a higher dimension).

In the Hopi tradition, 144,000 “rainbow warriors” or “sundancers” would gather at the end of this cycle to unite the Earth. Lightworkers Worldwide suggests that:

“At that time, people will have their choice to accept or reject the Creator’s plan for peace on earth. This is prophetically seen as the return of Quetzacoatl who in the ancient Mayan tradition is also the God of the planet Venus.” (2)

Sanat Kumara as Quetzlcoatl

Sanat Kumara is an exalted figure known to Zoroastrians, Hindus, Buddhists, Scandinavians, Muslims, and Theosophistsas well as  Christians and Jews.  To the latter he is known as the Biblical “Ancient of Days.”

Dr. Jose Arguelles led the Harmonic Convergence.  The ceremonies were held at power centers like Mount Shasta and Mount Fuji. It was believed that, if 144,000 people assembled at these power centers and meditated for peace, their efforts would multiply the power of the predicted events.  (3)

Sanat Kumara as the “Ancient of Days”

Dr. Lyn Hopkins described the organizers’ intentions:

“The period in history known as the Harmonic Convergence was defined by Jose Arguelles as:  ‘the point at which the counter-spin of history finally comes to a momentary halt, and the still imperceptible spin of post-history commences.’

“It was the fulfillment of the prophecy of Quetzalcoatl, known as the Thirteen Heavens and Nine Hells.  The prophecy stated that following the ninth hell, humanity would know and experience an unprecedented New Age of Peace.  The Hell cycle ended on August 16, 1987; the Harmonic Convergence began on August 17.

Sanat Kumara as Skanda

“Thus began the projected twenty-five year culmination of the 5,125 year Great Cycle of History, as well as the 26,000-year cycle of evolution, both slated to end in 2012.” (4)

Of course we know now that the era following the Harmonic Convergence of 1987 was anything but a “New Age of Peace.”

But that doesn’t detract from the significance of the event. Galactic and spirit teachers today say that many more people were made aware of Ascension than if the event had never happened and many more will go forward with the Earth as a result of it.

Dr. Hopkins described the energy changes as a result of the event:

“Since the initiation of the Harmonic Convergence, there have been measurable increases in the energy of our planet Earth.  After resonating at a base resonant frequency of 8 Hz per second for thousands of years, during which Earth has essentially been asleep, her frequency is now rising.  She appears to be rising to a fundamental vibration of 13 cycles per second, as predicted by the Fibonacci series (mathematical proportions based on the Golden Mean, also called the harmonics of the universe).

“Accompanying this energy boost is a rapid decrease in the magnetic field that surrounds the planet.  Our magnetic field has served us in the past by creating an illusion of separation and protection from energies outside ourselves.  It will eventually reach zero when there will be no artificial barriers, so it is essential that we take our power individually and collectively, honoring others and ourselves in the process.” (5)

The Harmonic Convergence of 1987

In 2008, Meg Benedicte looked back on the results of the Harmonic Convergence.  She felt it to have been an event of the highest importance and invited the planet’s population to use their inspiration from it to propel them through Ascension.

“Not only are we being supported by our Universal neighbors at this time, but we also have a powerful particle field of divine light entering our atmosphere.

“The inter-dimensional pathway opened in the heavens, and the Upward Spiral of Ascension swept into our human energy field in 1987 at the Harmonic Convergence.

“Since then we have been gradually shedding density and parasitic systems, so that we can disengage from the downward spiral of the human death cycle, and shift into embodying the Universal upward spiral of evolution. This is the path of hope, renewal and rebirth!

“I invite all who are drawn to the New Earth reality to join the Ascension movement now. Send love from your hearts into the wave circling the planet as we build a crescendo of hope that supports the New Age. Charge it up in your hearts, picture it in your minds and feel it secure into the quantum hologram, so that we can take back our world and create the change needed to provide for all life on this planet. We are ONE community! Our time is NOW!” (6)

Dr. Meg Blackburn Losey, channeling “the Masters” a year later, drew our attention to the steadily increasing harmonics of the planet and its inhabitants.

“Your harmonic vibrations have been raised in recent weeks to a state of oscillation and vibration that has not been experienced in humanity for nearly 26,000 years. You are of greater light and more reflective than humanity has ever been in the entirety of its history.

“What is now in occurrence is a complete re-harmonization of all creation that brings forth a heightening of responsive light toward attunement of dysfunctional harmonics. Like a grand piano, all of creation is ridding itself of sour notes and retuning for perfection of harmonic resonance.” (7)

We are now down to the last two-and-a-half years of this present planetary cycle.

The Conscious Convergence scheduled for July 17-18, 2010 is the next stage in our opening to the consciousness of our unity with everything that lives and our preparations for Ascension. May it result in the falling away of the walls that divide us and the achievement of unity and harmony as a planet.

Ela of Arcturus: Awaiting First Contact

Ela of Arcturus: Awaiting First Contact

Can you imagine what it is like to live in complete peace, harmony and balance? When we come close to Earth we are aware of the turmoil that is taking place, but we distance ourselves from the energies themselves. We can in fact stand outside and not be affected by them. Yet we understand the meaning of conflict and the battles you have both on a mental and physical level. We see you as still fighting with your ego, although many of you now have the ability to keep it in check. But we also see the selfish actions of those who have worked their way into positions of power and authority, who reward themselves with the riches of the world, while many suffer through the lack of the basic needs for life. This situation brings about continual dissatisfaction as deep within you aspire to a world that shares its wealth, and where respect is given for the sovereignty of others. It has taken you a long time to take an overview and see exactly where you are, and time has been called for the old ways that are no longer acceptable. We can walk amongst you and see the affects of your negative emotions, and are astounded at the results. This is in no way a criticism but simply an observation, as we do appreciate the difficulty of exercising control when you face so many challenges each day. We know that you are ready for the changes that are coming, and you will not need much encouragement to come together in peace and love, it is something that is really within your true nature. Some of you have forgotten how to be at one with everything, but many are trying hard to maintain that position and are being successful. Of course you were bound to go through these experiences; you could not have entered the cycle of duality without being pulled down by the negative vibrations. We see how easy it is to lose sight of your real self, and even deny your Godself. We have the benefit of having gone before, and we come to lift you up with us as that is your destiny. We have nothing but admiration for you all, not every soul would have wished to experience first-hand the challenge you have taken on, and how wonderfully well you have succeeded.

Like many others, I await that signal that allows First Contact to openly commence, and I can assure you that we feel privileged to be the ones to make that contact, and we are getting quite excited. It will be your release from the bonds that have held you in check for eons of time. We cannot wait to greet you and share with you your wonder and enjoyment, because we have much to show you. But first we address the situations that are spoiling your quality of life, and then we help you to clean up your Earth.

You will take a quantum leap in a short time that will take you hundreds of years ahead, with all of the advantages that it will bring you. Humanity is due to experience this degree of progress in readiness for the final years that prepare you for Ascension. We shall also be with you for the end-time as we too are moving on as are many in the Cosmos. This is quite natural, and is the first step on that journey home. We will tell you more about your destiny when we meet, there is so much we wait to inform you about.

Meantime we have to be very flexible, and although our main preparations have been completed we adjust according to what is happening on Earth. Our planning is in perfection and I can you assure you there is absolutely nothing to fear. You will soon accept us and realise that we are coming to you as your Brothers and Sisters, and in Love and service to you. We have carried out similar tasks, so we are well used to ensuring that all works well according to the plan. But you may be amazed at the sheer size of our operation, it involves personnel and craft numbering millions. Some of this has been necessary to protect the Earth and carry out preliminary work that has been going on for some years now. We have always had a certain responsibility where your Earth has been concerned, and our presence has been vital since you discovered how to split the atom. There has been much reparation work that we have carried out since that time, as you have been playing with technologies that you have not fully understood.

I am Ela from Arcturus, and I welcome the opportunity to come to you once again, and share some of my thoughts. In the name of the Father/Mother Creator God I send you my Love and ask you to look ahead and see only the positive outcome.
