Term: Harmonic Convergence
Based on the Mayan Calendar, the “Harmonic Convergence” occurred on August 16-17, 1987. It was supposed to usher in a new era of global awakening to love and spiritual transformation. When the expected change did not occur on that date, the concept changed to say that the event marked the beginning of a five-year period of change. Most people today don’t think that change occurred, and negative events such as massacres and wars continued. However, there were positive geopolitical events such as the end of apartheid in South Africa as well as the Soviet Union splitting into independent states. Some say that the Mayan Calendar was going to end on that day, but this was altered to say it was the beginning of the ending cycle of the calendar. The true end will supposedly occur in 2012.
