Did you know that Mother Earth has a ‘heartbeat’? Its referred to as the Schumann Resonance, flashes of lightning that strike our planet roughly 50 times every second and results in the formation of low-frequency electromagnetic waves. Its thought that these waves could affect human behaviour and even our consciousness levels.
We know so little about our planet and its rhythms, just as in my last two blogs I wrote about how little we understand about ourselves, in Detox the Pineal Gland and Activate the Pineal Gland – Third Eye Centre.
This blog ties us in to a series of Yoga Classes I am sharing during January 2022 as a kickstart to the New Year – Detox for the Soul. See classes in person and online here.
What is the Schumann Resonance?
The earth is resonating at a base frequency of 7.83 Hz, this was first discovered in the 1950s by Winfried Otto Schumann. The levels of this frequency go up and down in waves and its known that recently this frequency has been seen to shoot up to really high levels not seen before, in the past 2 years, 2020-2022.
Could this be related or in sync with the mass spiritual awakening that is happening on the planet at this time?
The 7.83Hz level relates to a human beings brain waves and correlates to Alpha/Theta which is the frequency that induces relaxation, sleep, cell regeneration and healing. But what happens to this natural frequency sync between us and our planet, when we are surrounded by unnatural waves of frequency from power supplies, telecommunications, appliances, computers and other devices? For example, the frequency of electromagnetic radiation, powers cell phones, tvs, radio etc, ranges from 30,000 Hz to 300 Billion Hz. Is it any surprise we are so disconnected from our Mother Earths Heart Song, her heartbeat when we are surrounded by these?
It has been proven by scientific experiments that tuning into 7.83Hz, the planet’s own magnetic frequency people experience benefits like enhanced learning/memory, body rejuvenation, balance, improved stress tolerance, anti-jetlag, anti-mind control, and grounding. On the other hand, experiments were done, where Schumann resonance, the exposure of 7.83 Hz frequency was removed from individuals environment. The subjects reported migraine headaches, emotional distress, and other health problems. This shows how important it is to be in tune with the Earth’s magnetic frequency.
Mother Earths Magnetic Field
The earths magnetic field is all around us, yet we do not tend in our daily lives, to think or consider it often. The field can affect our brain and body, here’s an extract from an article published in Discover Magazine:
There’s no escaping magnetic fields — they’re all around us. For starters, the Earth itself is like a giant magnet. A spinning ball of liquid iron in our planet’s core generates the vast magnetic field that moves our compass needles around and directs the internal compasses of migrating birds, bats, and other animals. On top of that, ever-industrious humans have produced artificial magnetic fields with power lines, transport systems, electrical appliances, and medical equipment.
We may not be able to see, hear, feel, or taste the magnetic fields that surround us, but some may wonder whether they can still exert effects on our bodies and brains.
There is much research available online about how the Earths magnetic field affects animals and birds. Scientists know that birds can see the field and use it to navigate incredible distances, but hardly anything is known about how the magnetic field affects us. Much research that is carried out, is often dismissed as a ‘hippie nonsense’ which is a shame as we know that we are no different from other creatures on the planet, we were designed to live here in harmony, so why would humans be the only species that is not affected by the field?
This again, opens up a lot of questions about how we are affected, many hard to answer, Google will not tell us, so lets keep asking!
There has been some research done into cells actually responding to magnetic fields, read about it here in Forbes.
Our Magnetic Field Or Aura
Just as our Mother Earth has a field, so do we. We call it an Aura. Heres an interesting extract from the Centre for Biofield Studies in Pune, Indian:
The presumption of the existence of the “Aura”, is based upon the principle that all mental activity is electromagnetic. While some medical theorists argue that mental activity is chemical, because of the chemical neurotransmitters involved, the fact is that neurotransmitters are created only when electrical impulses induce a voltage in a neuron which exceeds its firing threshold.
In addition, EEG (electroencephalogram) technology shows that mental activity can be effectively analyzed and monitored entirely by electromagnetic principles. In electrical engineering, it is an established principle that all electrical currents produce surrounding electromagnetic (EM) fields. Accordingly, our psychological and emotional activities are sent throughout the body as electrical impulses, radiating electromagnetic fields outside the body, which are characteristic of the mental activity that generated them. Indeed, even the mere movement of atoms will produce a quantifiable electromagnetic field.
This is most clearly observed in the case of charged radioisotopes, but even neutral atoms and molecules will emit a field through valence motion of the charged substructure particles. As proven by Russian Tesla technology experiments in the 1950s, this phenomenon causes prokaryotic organisms to produce an external electromagnetic field, which consists of the combined EM emissions from millions of molecules in the biological body.
Grounding and Earthing to Mother Earth
Its so simple and we have been working in harmony with the earth for thousands of years, until very recently. Simply taking time to really connect to Mother Earth and walking on bare earth is exactly what we have done for aeons. Until the past decades, we did not have synthetic shoes, concrete, tarmac and were always connecting to the planet.
We can be sure that our disconnection with the Earth is creating all kinds of health problems that could so easily be fixed.
- Take 10 minutes a day to sit or lie on the Earth, on grass, and or rock, without shoes
- Walk barefoot whenever possible
- Lie facedown and enjoy a heart bond connection with our Mother
- Buy an Earthing mat and use it in your bed or at your desk
- Spend time ‘Forest Bathing’ (a fancy way of saying, hanging out in the woods!)
- Get away from power supplies, right out into the fields or woodlands and leave the phone behind too
- Practice yoga and meditation outside whenever possible
Do more research into how the Earth can really support us in our healing, both physical and emotional, spiritual issues. Watch the film Earthing to get really inspired by how simply hanging out on the Earth can heal:
How can Yoga & Meditation Help?
A yoga practice can help us to reconnect with our souls and therefore feel closer and more in harmony to Mother Earth.
Regular yoga sessions can bring a balance that we may not have felt in many years and we start to become more finely tuned to the Heart Song of our Planet. Listening more sensitively to our bodies and minds, the call from within to reconnect with nature, to spend time listening to bird song, walking and spending time outside, removing toxins from our lives and our environment, not only those we can see, but the more subtle toxins like EMFs etc.
Our bodies channels that need re-aligning can become supported by yoga and as our body aligns with itself, it will naturally align with the Earth. We become more acutely connected to the seasons, the moon, the energy around us, we feel and sense more and this results in feeling better on many levels and more positive.
We notice we feel better when we are in harmony with Mother Earth and her rhythms and cycles. We enjoy sunlight more, moonlight more and begin to crave the outdoors!
Working with a yoga practice that helps to balance the Root/Earth Chakra can be very helpful when we feel out of alignment with nature and are craving her. If we are unwell for a period and can’t get outside, if we live somewhere it is difficult to be in nature or if we have a job that keeps us tied to a desk, surrounded by technology. A yoga session that focuses on the Root can be really helpful and a quick, easy way to feel the Earth beneath us, even if we are on the 20th floor of a tower block.
Other Ideas to Reconnect to Mother Earth
Try aromatherapy oils, here’s a video during a zoom yoga class I made during lockdown Feb 2021 about using aromas to help you ground.
Look into Earth Energy and Leylines, the earth has meridian channels just as we do, so look into how this works and see if you might have some earth energy around you. Sacred sites, churches and hill forts were always built by our ‘more in tune’ ancestors at locations where earth energy was powerful. If you look on an Ordnance Survey map and can line up at least 5 sites with a ruler, you are very likely to be on a Leyline.
Find out more online and if you live near me in Dorset we are so lucky to be surrounded by beautiful sacred sites that allow this Earth Energy to flow.
Hug trees, they love it and so will you!!
