Dr. Joe Dispenza] In 1952, German physicist and professor W.O. Schumann hypothesized there were measurable electromagnetic waves in the atmosphere that existed in the cavity (or space) between the surface of the earth and the ionosphere. According to NASA, the ionosphere is an abundant layer of electrons, ionized atoms, and molecules that stretches from approximately 30 miles above the surface of the earth to the edge of space, at about 600 miles. This dynamic region grows and shrinks (and further divides into sub-regions) based on solar conditions and is a critical link in the chain of Sun-Earth interactions. It’s this “celestial power station” that makes radio communications possible.
In 1954, Schumann and H.L. König confirmed Schumann’s hypothesis by
detecting resonances at a main frequency of 7.83 Hz; thus, the “Schumann
resonance” was established by measuring global
electromagnetic resonances generated and excited by lightning discharges
in the ionosphere. While this phenomenon is caused by lightning in the
atmosphere, many are not aware of the importance of this frequency as a
tuning fork for life. In other words, it acts as a background frequency
influencing the biological circuitry of the mammalian brain.
As far back as we know, the Earth’s electromagnetic field has been
protecting all living things with this natural frequency pulsation of
7.83 Hz. You can think of this as the earth’s heartbeat. The ancient
Indian Rishis referred to this as OHM, or the incarnation of pure sound.
Whether by coincidence or not, the frequency of 7.83 Hz also happens to
be a very powerful frequency used with brain wave entrainment as it’s
associated with low levels of alpha and the upper range of theta brain
wave states. This frequency has also been associated with high levels of
hypnotizability, suggestibility, meditation, and increased HGH (human
growth hormone) levels, in addition to increased cerebral blood-flow
levels while this frequency is being stimulated.
It would seem then that our nervous system can be influenced by the
earth’s electromagnetic field. Maybe that’s why being in nature has
always been so restorative and healing. Disconnecting from a typical
city setting by reducing our exposure to crowds, traffic, work, and
routine life—and instead getting out in natural surroundings—can slow
our brain waves down from the aggressive, vigilant, anxious, and
impatient states that are seen in higher ranges of beta brain waves to
more restorative alpha waves.
On January 31, 2017, for the first time in recorded history, the
Schumann resonance reached frequencies of 36+ Hz. It was considered an
anomaly when in 2014 this frequency rose from its usual 7.83 Hz to
somewhere in the 15-25 Hz levels—so a jump from 7.83 Hz to 36+ Hz is a
big deal. That’s more than a five-fold increase in resonant frequency
levels. What does this mean to us as inhabitants of Mother Earth?
According to neuroscience, frequency recordings of 36+ Hz in the human
brain are more associated with a stressed nervous system than a relaxed
and healthy one. Read More
