It has been called a great time of “awakening”, by ancient prophecy. Many believe that these are the times in which we are presently living. Information is spreading faster than ever before in recorded history. The truth about many of our world’s situations, which have long since been hidden, are now coming to the surface of conscious awareness. When observing the scope of change on the planet at present, it becomes obvious that something is happening. Could this all be connected? Just what might this “something” be?
The Schumann resonance is the resonant frequency of the Earth’s electro-magnetic field. It is also known to be foundational to human consciousness. For the technical definition, we turn to Wikipedia.
The Schumann Resonance is the frequency of the electromagnetic field of the earth. It is supposed to be steady at 7.83 Hz, but it can vary slightly.
“The Schumann resonances (SR) are a set of spectrum peaks in the extremely low frequency (ELF) portion of the Earth’s electromagnetic field spectrum. Schumann resonances are global electromagnetic resonances, generated and excited by lightning discharges in the cavity formed by the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere.
This global electromagnetic resonance phenomenon is named after physicist Winfried Otto Schumann who predicted it mathematically in 1952. Schumann resonances occur because the space between the surface of the Earth and the conductive ionosphere acts as a closed waveguide. The limited dimensions of the Earth cause this waveguide to act as a resonant cavity for electromagnetic waves in the ELF band. The cavity is naturally excited by electric currents in lightning. Schumann resonances are the principal background in the electromagnetic spectrum beginning at 3 Hz and extending to 60 Hz, and appear as distinct peaks at extremely low frequencies (ELF) around 7.83 (fundamental), 14.3, 20.8, 27.3 and 33.8 Hz.”
So we learn here that the Schumann resonance is not simply one frequency, but a series of frequencies within a singular wave form. It is this frequency that is found to be rising sporadically from 7.83 Hz (the strongest of the series) to a frequency as high as 16.5 Hz. The Event Chronicle had this to say on the matter.
“For many years this resonance frequency has hovered at a steady 7.83 Hz with only slight variations. In June 2014 that apparently changed. Monitors at the Russian Space Observing System showed a sudden spike in activity to around 8.5 Hz.
Since then, they have recorded days where the Schumann accelerated as fast as 16.5 Hz. (The graph is usually blue with some green, and no white.)
At first they thought their equipment was malfunctioning, but later learned the data was accurate. Everyone was asking, what’s causing this intermittent spiking activity?
Is the Earth’s frequency speeding up? Since the Schumann frequency is said to be “in tune” with the human brain’s alpha and theta states, this acceleration may be why it often feels like time has sped up and events and changes in our life are happening more rapidly.
These emerging resonances are naturally correlated to human brainwave activity. So this means, we are changing. Many years ago I was trained in EEG Neurofeedback, so I looked at what these accelerated frequencies might be telling us about human evolutionary change. A 7.83 Hz frequency is an alpha/theta state.”
This change in Schumann frequency could very possibly, represent a change in human consciousness, but what does this mean, and if this is true, how could we measure such a change? There is, in fact a procedure for measuring various levels of human consciousness. This technique is known as “electroencephalography”. Wikipedia had this to say about this procedure.
“Electroencephalography uses electrical leads placed all over the scalp to measure the collective electrical activity of the cerebral cortex. Specifically, EEG measures the electric fields of large groups of neurons. EEG has the benefit of excellent temporal resolution and is able to measure aggregate activity of portions or the entire cortex down to the millisecond scale. Unlike other imaging based methods, EEG does not have good spatial resolution and is more appropriately used to evaluate the running spontaneous activity of the cortex. This spontaneous activity is classified into four main classifications based on the frequency of the activity, ranging from low frequency delta waves (< 4 Hz) commonly found during sleep to beta waves (13–30 Hz) associated with an awake and alert brain. In between these two extremes are theta waves (4–8 Hz) and alpha waves (8–12 Hz).”
We learn here that different levels of consciousness correspond to various frequency ranges in Hz. For greater definition, the table below helps us map out these various brainwave frequencies.
Levels of Brainwave Frequency
- Delta wave – (0.1 – 3 Hz)
- Theta wave – (4 – 7 Hz)
- Alpha wave – (8 – 15 Hz)
- Mu wave – (7.5 – 12.5 Hz)
- SMR wave – (12.5 – 15.5 Hz)
- Beta wave – (16 – 31 Hz)
- Gamma wave – (32 – 100 Hz)
So far we have described how to measure the Schumann resonance, and we’ve defined the means to measure brainwave frequencies which correspond to various states of consciousness. We know that the Earth’s electro-magnetic frequency is rising, but what does all of this mean, and how does this relate to practical life? The Event Chronicle gives an interesting picture of what this change of brainwave frequency might look like.
“A 7.83 Hz frequency is an alpha/theta state. Relaxed, yet dreamy—sort of a neutral idling state waiting for something to happen. A 8.5 – 16.5 Hz frequency moves one out of the theta range into more of a full calmer alpha state with faster more alert beta frequencies starting to appear.
(This correlates with slowly waking up cognitively). Since the Schumann Resonance has had sudden spikes between 12 – 16.5 Hz (see pic’s white areas), I found this even more interesting.
In Neurofeedback, 12-15 Hz is called Sensory-Motor Rhythm frequency (SMR). It is an ideal state of “awakened calm.” Our thought processes are clearer and more focused, yet we are still “in the flow” or “in the know.”
We can see that this Schumann resonance, to whatever extent, is increasing. With this in mind, the question becomes, will this culminate into an “awakening” of sorts, and an opportunity to raise our individual, and collective consciousness as a species?
