How to Safely Detox Mercury and Heavy Metals to Increase Energy*

How to Safely Detox Mercury and Heavy Metals to Increase Energy*

Within the last 30 years, heavy metal poisoning has been increasing significantly. One of the major causes of this is the increase of adding heavy metals to commercial products. Some of these commercial products are agrichemicals (i.e., pesticide, herbicide). These toxic chemicals are some of the major causes of heavy metal contamination in soil, crops, and other food sources throughout the world. Another major causes of heavy metal toxicity is dental amalgams (silver fillings).

What are Heavy Metals?

In general, heavy metals are elements that have metallic properties and are harmful to the body, even in small quantities. The scientific definition of heavy metal is a metal with a density level greater than 5 g/cm3. Examples of heavy metals are mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), arsenic (As), chromium (Cr), thallium (Tl), and lead (Pb).

Another metal that you should be wary of is aluminum, because it is one of the major causes of metal toxicity. In its pure form, this metal is very toxic to your body. Aluminum is not considered a heavy metal, but it does have heavy metal-like properties.

How Heavy Metals Harm Your Body and Symptoms of Heavy Metal Toxicity

Most heavy metals harm your body by destroying certain cells and weakening your body’s metabolism and neurotransmission process. This could lead to neurodegenerative diseases (i.e., Alzheimer’s) and other chronic health problems.

Heavy metals tend to bio-accumulate in the body and therefore the body has a hard time breaking them down into safe substances. Because of this, the amount of heavy metals in the body can increase to dangerous levels in a short amount of time.

Symptoms of heavy metal toxicity can range greatly. Some of the common symptoms are low energy, anxiety, depression, headaches, chronic pain, constipation, dizziness, and memory problems. Heavy metal toxicity is often not diagnose properly, because most people and doctors are not trained to detect symptoms of heavy metal poisoning.

How to Safely Detox Mercury and Heavy Metals

It is wise to detox harmful heavy metals on a regular basis, especially mercury because it is one of the most toxic neurotoxins on Earth. When detoxing heavy metals, it is best to do it in cycles. Doing this allows your body enough time to extract heavy metals that have bio-accumulated in your fatty tissues and organs, and release them into your bloodstream for excretion. Furthermore, it helps prevent major side effects due to having too much heavy metals in your bloodstream.

Before detoxing heavy metals, you should get a test done for heavy metal poisoning. One of the best tests available to the public is the Metals Hair Test or Hair Elements Test.

Another thing you should do before you start detoxing heavy metals from your body is to go on a proper supplementation program, so that you can supply your body with essential vitamins and minerals, such as magnesium, zinc, calcium, vitamin (B, C, and E), and essential fatty acids, and other essential nutrients. Without these nutrients, your body has a harder time detoxing heavy metals. Also, eat lots of organic plant foods.

Each heavy metal behaves differently in the body, so the method to remove it will vary. For example, when detoxing mercury, it is best to remove all dental amalgams (silver fillings) from your teeth before going on a mercury detox program. You should learn how to detox mercury for the reason that it is the most toxic heavy metal and it is one of the common causes of heavy metal poisoning.

Removing dental amalgams should be undertaken with the care from a medical professional in order to ensure that the process is done safely. Most dentists do not know how to do this, so you will need to find a dentist in your area who knows how to safely remove dental amalgams. A great website to search for dentists who know how to do this is IAOMT.org. If you want to learn more about mercury poisoning, visit MercuryPoisoned.com.

The Dangers of Dental Amalgam

If you want to increase your success rate of detoxing heavy metals and preventing heavy metal poisoning, you need to education yourself with the right knowledge. I recommend reading the book Amalgam Illness, Diagnosis and Treatment by Andrew Hall Cutler. This book is more concentrated on mercury poisoning, but it also has some great information about other heavy metals.

Another thing you may want to do to prevent heavy metal poisoning is to avoid vaccine shots. Many vaccines contain thimerosal, a mercury-based derivatives. The image below will show you evidence of this.

For ten tips to reduce your risk of heavy metal poisoning, read this informative article titled Ten Heavy Metal Toxicity Prevention Tips.

The Health Benefits of Detoxing Heavy Metals

After you detox heavy metals from your body, you should notice:

  • An increase in energy
  • An improvement in your thinking skills and memory
  • An improvement in your concentration
  • A decrease in body weight
  • Less muscle and joint pain
  • Less migraines and headaches
  • Less sleeping problems and mood swings
  • Less psychological problems
  • Better coordination skills
  • Best of all, you will feel ALIVE again!

Here are some great videos to help you learn more about mercury poisoning and amalgam fillings.

Rarest Blood Types On Earth – How Unique is Your Blood?*

Rarest Blood Types On Earth – How Unique is Your Blood?*

There are certain blood types that are very rare on Earth. People who have a unique blood type can be found in all corners of the world. Are you perhaps one them?

What are the rarest blood types on Earth?

To answer this question, we must first understand that a blood type is classified as rare if fewer than 1 in 1,000 people have it. There are currently 33 recognized blood group systems and many are still undiscovered. Some of these blood groups are extremely rare, making people have this blood truly unique.

What Determines a Human’s Blood Type?

There are 8 basic blood types and these are A, AB, B, and O and their positive or negative variations. These 8 types can be divided into millions of varieties and this fact makes blood research really complicated.

The classifications are derived from the antigens of a person’s blood cells – antigens being proteins that are found on the surface of the cells and which are designed to combat bacteria and viruses.  If a particular high-prevalence antigen is missing from your red blood cells, then you are “negative” for that blood group.

The most common of these blood type is O. The origin of our blood types still remains a great scientific riddle.

According to the American Red Cross the most rare blood type is AB(-). It is present in 1% of the Caucasians, in African Americans it is even rarer. B(-) and O(-) are also very rare, each accounting for less than 5% of the world’s population.

Not all ethnic groups have the same mix of these blood types. Latino-American people, for example, have a relatively high number of O’s, while Asian people have a relatively high number of B’s. The mix of the different blood types in the U.S. population is like presented in this image. Image credit: American Red Cross

 

Bombay Blood Group – One of The World’s Rarest Blood Groups

A blood type few have heard of is called Bombay blood group. It is one of the world’s rarest blood groups and people who carry this rare blood type can accept blood only from another Bombay blood type individual, and not from anyone who is O, A, B or AB type.

It is estimated that about 1 in 10, 000 Indians and 1 per 1,000,000 individuals in Europe.

The h/h blood group, also known as Oh or the Bombay blood group was discovered in 1952 in Bombay, India by Dr. Y. M. Bhende.

Finding a donor for someone with Bombay blood is very difficult.

Two patients needed blood transfusion, but none of the blood types known until then worked for them. The moment their blood samples were mixed with any of the above types, the blood coagulated or clumped up.

The Bombay (Oh) phenotype is characterized by the absence of A, B, and H antigens on red cells.

Rh-Null – A “Universal Blood”

What makes Rh-null very rare and special is that it lacks any antigens in the Rh system. There are only 9 active donors in the community of rare blood donors that have Rh-null blood. This means that people who have Rh-null can have difficulties obtaining lifesaving blood.

Rh-null was first described in 1961 in an Aboriginal Australian woman. At the time doctors were rather surprised because it was assumed an embryo missing all Rh blood-cell antigens would not survive, let alone grow into a normal, thriving adult. By 2010, about 43 people with Rh-null blood had been reported worldwide.

The Lu(a-b-) phenotype or Lunull – Extremely Rare Blood Group

The Lutheran blood group was initially described in 1945. It got its name because of a misinterpretation of the patient’s name, Luteran.

The Lu(a−b−) phenotype is extremely uncommon and is known to have three genetic backgrounds. Tests on 250000 blood donors show the frequency of Lu(a-b-) to be approximately 1 in 3000. So, this blood type is very rare!

Rh Negative – One of the Most Unexplained Blood Types

Rh negative is not rare, but nevertheless a real scientific mystery. No one has been able to explain where people with the Rh negative blood type people came from. Most, familiar with blood factors, admit that these people must be the result of a random mutation, if not descendants of a different ancestor. What cause the mutation? Who was this unknown ancestor?

There is some evidence that suggests the RH-negative blood group may have appeared about 35,000 years ago. Appearance of RH-negative blood did not follow the usual evolutionary path. In fact, evolution would seem to be ruled out as a possible cause of the anomaly. It has been proven that blood is the least likely to mutate. There are no other blood mutations. The introduction of the RH-negative blood type was not a naturally occurring part of human evolution.

The blood type is not rare, but it still poses a great scientific mystery.

No Masters, No Rulers – A World Without Statist Conditioning*

No Masters, No Rulers – A World Without Statist Conditioning*

By Gary ‘Z’ McGee

“The most useful piece of learning for the uses of life is to unlearn what is untrue.” ~Antisthenes

Raised, as most of us are, within nation states, it is extremely difficult to think outside the statist box. It’s tantamount to cognitive dissonance; Might as well ask a fish to breathe outside water, it’s so counterintuitive. But, and here’s the rub, we are not fish, and if we want to continue to be a progressively evolving species on this planet, we are going to have to think outside the box.

The thing is, it’s perfectly okay if “the box” is healthy, sustainable, and moral. But when it’s unhealthy, unsustainable, and immoral, like the statist box is, then it becomes imperative that we think outside of it. If we cannot do this, then we cowardly give in to indifference and ignorance, and we will be ruled by those who know how to gain power over indifference and ignorance. As Plato pointed out,

 “The price of apathy toward public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.”

In order to recondition our statist conditioning, we’re going to have to imagine a world without masters and rulers. No mastery except for self-mastery; no rulers except for self-rule. This seems counterintuitive to our statist conditioning, but it’s not. We simply need to be a little more imaginative about the ways in which we approach the ideas of leadership and rules. Leadership does not imply the need for masters, and rules do not imply the need for a ruler. We simply need a fresh perspective, preferably one that can see past statist driven propaganda. As Plotinus said,

 “We must close our eyes and invoke a new manner of seeing… a wakefulness that is the birthright of us all, though few put it to use.”

No Masters Does NOT Mean No Leaders

“In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations, and epochs, it is the rule.” ~Friedrich Nietzsche

A good leader does not seek mastery over others but mastery over the self. It is through self-mastery that a leader leads by example. No masters means no seeking mastery over others (tyranny), and no bequeathing mastery over oneself to others (slavery). It does not mean no leadership. Rather, no masters implies leadership through self-mastery, without the master-slave dynamic muddying up the waters of liberty.

The problem with growing up thinking inside the statist box is that we are brain washed into thinking that the mastery of the state, with its hierarchical power constructs and vertical oligarchy, is leadership. We are conditioned to think that our obedience to the system (house slavery) is the price we pay to not be kicked out of the nation (house).

No masters means freedom. Not the pseudo-freedom espoused by the state, but real freedom. It means no slavery, whether soft or hard. It means the individual is free to discover his/her own self-mastery through the leadership of others and not through obsequious to others or the system. As Epictetus said,

“No man is free, who is not master of himself.”

A good leader knows when to follow (obey) as well as when not to follow (disobey). A true leader will not blindly kowtow to the state, but wisely question it, knowing that the state is mostly made up of individuals who tend to seek mastery over others rather than self-mastery. It’s because of this tendency that most states dissolve into authoritarian regimes that rule by force (fear and violence) rather than leadership (honour and prestige). Lest we give into the inherent insanity of the state, we must remain self-empowered individuals seeking self-mastery through sound leadership rather than self-inured individuals blindly following the mastery of the system that keeps the state entrenched.

No Rulers Does NOT Mean No Rules

“Those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber.” ~Plato

As it stands, we are a nation within which the majority of us do not engage in politics. Is it any wonder we are governed by orange-faced bigots and dumb and dumber bipartisanship? Ad hominem aside, the powers that be only have power when we the people agree that they have power.

The problem is that the majority of the people are not proactively engaged in politics and tend to be ignorant to the ways in which power works. This bodes well for those in power, for the entrenched masters and rulers, but not so well for those seeking self-mastery, self-rule, and freedom and justice for all. As Lord Byron once said,

“Those who will not reason are bigots, those who cannot, are fools, and those who dare not, are slaves.”

Lest we allow ourselves to become bigots, fools, and slaves, we must be proactively engaged with our own freedom and aware of how the powers that be are working to keep us that way. “No masters, no rulers” is an extremely poignant phrase that keeps us circumspect and vigilant regarding our own freedom and liberty.

But even this phrase rarely gets through to the masses, because the masses are thinking and reasoning within a preconditioned statist box. So the typical statist’s knee jerk reaction to “no rulers” is…”But, but, we need the rulers.” Well, of course we need rules, but who says we need rulers? And the statist says “But, who will enforce rules?” Easy! We will. We the people, we the free, we the self-governed, we the self-empowered. We who choose to self-rule and who seek self-mastery without a tyrannical state blocking our freedom using outdated, fallible, man-made laws that don’t agree with cosmic law, common sense, logic and reasoning, and the non-aggression principal.

There will always be rules. Our basic survival depends upon following certain cosmic rules. The problem is most rules delivered by the state usually violate cosmic law. And so the typical naïve statist, unaware of how cosmic laws work, unaware of how power works, blindly follow the rules of the state without realizing that they are violating laws way more important than petty state laws. This is because of fear-conditioning. Statists are conditioned through fear to follow state driven laws, and this fear acts like eye-guards to laws that really matter. But the fear is very real. The question is, what are we going to do about it? As Derrick Jensen said,

“Those in power rule by force, and the sooner we break ourselves of illusions to the contrary, the sooner we can at least begin to make reasonable decisions about whether, when, and how we are going to resist.”

At the end of the day, we all have a statist box that we must begin thinking outside of if we wish to progressively evolve as a species. “No masters, no rulers” is a useful phrase that we can use as a tool to leverage imagination and think outside the statist box. Statist conditioning be damned! Statist propaganda be damned! Statist brainwashing be damned! The way forward is to become individuals who are responsible with their own power; self-rule, self-mastery, self-empowerment, self-governance. Let the Goliath state rant and rave all it wants with its petty laws and outdated reasoning. We are David!

We alone are responsible for our own actions, because we are free, and we realize that anyone who says otherwise is a conditioned statist who isn’t ready to be free. They do not see the corruption and tyranny closing in upon them. They do not see the so-called masters and rulers threatening our self-mastery and self-rule with violence and fear. They do not see how their conditioning has crippled them into robots and pawns going through the motions of a diabolical soft slavery. They don’t even know that they don’t know. Meanwhile, the statist box they so desperately need to think outside of, lies hidden in the shadows of propaganda just waiting for them to gain the courage it takes to see past the smoke and mirrors. Like Brandon Stanton said,

“The way to learn courage is to be afraid of something, and then do it anyway.”

The scary part is, they don’t even know to be afraid.

The Brain-Shrinking Effects of a Junk Food Diet*

The Brain-Shrinking Effects of a Junk Food Diet*

By Amanda Froelich

Indulging in sugary drinks, fatty takeaway and processed meat might seem like a good idea at the time, but a new study has found that these habits will shrink a part of the brain responsible for memory, learning, and mental health.

 

Nearly everyone is guilty of indulging in junk food now and again, but research has found that those who frequently snack sugary drinks, high-sodium snacks, and processed meat are likely to shrink a portion of their brains in the long-term.

The study, published in BMC Medicine, compared MRI scans of approximately 250 people who were in their early 60’s during the year of 2001. Two dietary questionnaires informed the researchers whether or not participants in the group ate a “Western” diet (high in processed foods, fats, salt, and sugar) or a “prudent” diet (largely composed of fruits, vegetables, and fish), reports Vice.

Researchers from Deakin University and the Australian National University discovered that those who subscribed to the healthier “prudent” diet had larger hippocampi – the portion of the brain responsible for memory, learning and mental health – than those who indulge in Western diets.

In essence, a low-quality diet consisting of sugar, refined foods may be to blame for those ‘senile moments’ more and more people are experiencing, despite perhaps being young in age.

Other factors that might affect hippocampal volume were also taken into account by the authors of the study, such as medications, gender, and mental health issues. It was still concluded that a poor diet is a strong indicator of a shrunken hippocampus. Associate professor Felice Jacka, the lead researcher, commented in a press release:

“We’ve known for some time that components of diet, both healthy and unhealthy, have a rapid impact on aspects of the brain that affect hippocampal size and function, but up until now these studies have only been done in rats and mice. This is the first study to show that this also appears to be the case for humans.”

Food which is high in sugar has been found to be just as addictive as cocaine to some individuals. By slowly implementing healthier dietary choices, one can find long-term success in sticking to a regime which is good for their mind and body, as well as the planet. Click here for more information.

How to Resist From a Place of Love: Self-Care for the Long Haul*

How to Resist From a Place of Love: Self-Care for the Long Haul*

By Colin Beavan

There is a heated conversation in some activist circles that goes like this: Should our work draw strength from fear and anger or from a place of love and compassion? I have heard people say that if we stop being angry and start being loving, we would be letting the culprits off the hook. We would be blinding ourselves to the bad things happening and—in indulging our nice feelings—forget to help those endangered.

In workshops I give to help activists and concerned citizens cope, there’s an experiment I use that addresses this. It goes like this:

Conjure up all the fear and anger you have about the world and the politicians from the other side and the scandals and the targeting of those least able to defend themselves. Probably you’ll get a physical sensation. Where is that sensation? For most people it is in the throat and top of the chest. Now, imagine that you are powering your voice from there and that you are shouting at a march or speaking to an elected official. Try speaking from there right now, out loud. How long could you sustain it? Do you get the sense that before long you would go hoarse?

Next, imagine the love you feel for nature and the compassion you feel for those who need help. Now ask yourself where in your body the physical sensation is. For many, the feeling is located just below the naval. Now try to power your voice from that place, speaking out loud again. How long could that energy last?

If you are anything like me, you might get the feeling you could go forever.

And that is the thing about fear and anger versus love. Regardless whether the other side “deserves” anger, we must sustain ourselves for the work ahead. Can we actually go on forever with a blaming mentality, or will our work be better served by love? Our vision for the world is more likely to be achieved if it is grounded in compassion and love.

Recently, because so many people in my community were anxious and exhausted after the election, I held a workshop called “The Long Haul: Wisdom for Activists and Concerned Citizens.” The goal was to search for an attitude that would help us continue to work steadfastly toward a fair, compassionate, just, safe world without burning out.

There were nearly 40 of us. Some were seasoned activists alarmed by the bottom dropping out of all they thought they had achieved. Others were formerly disengaged citizens woken up by the election. Others were just concerned citizens, tired of being isolated behind their computer screens with all that worried them.

Here are three exercises we did.

Witnessing each other’s good work and giving thanks

We walked around the room introducing ourselves to each other, briefly recounting actions we had taken, like visiting elected officials or going on marches. Each of us attempted to really listen, then offered heartfelt thanks and hugged or touched each other’s shoulders or squeezed each other’s hands. This exercise helps change our view of the world from a dangerous, hate-filled place to a loving, hope-filled place. Keeping our focus on the good in the world helps many of us sustain our work.

Owning our complicity in the world’s problems

In groups of four, we each owned aspects of our own personal responsibility for the problems in the world. We talked about how we used fossil fuels even as we condemned the fossil fuel industry. We talked about how we had never bothered to take note of the 3 million to 4 million deportations that happened each year prior to Trump.

Bringing the world’s problems home and owning our part in them allows us to dissolve the imaginary monsters we see in Trump voters and people whose ideas differ from ours. Owning our complicity allows us to see ourselves in and have compassion for those we blame. We get to see that all of us—all of us—get caught up in deluded thinking and actions.

Create a positive vision rather than react to negative events

Next, we took turns in pairs telling each other our visions for the world. We each talked not about what we wanted to resist but about what we wanted to create. We talked about the clean air and water that comes with renewable energy. We talked about the resilient communities that come with racial and economic justice. We talked about the capable children that come with good schools. This provided us with a sense of agency and defined the good things we wanted for the world.

After the workshop, I was heartened to see how the energy in the room had lightened. People seemed inspired to carry on.

“I realize I have been clinging to my anger and my need to make someone else wrong with more energy than I have been trying to figure out how I can do what’s right,” someone said.

The point of this kind of work is simply not to let ourselves sink so deeply into our own despair that we can no longer act to combat the suffering of others. Caring people need to take care. We may have to find ways to put aside our unsustainable anger and fear in favor of our endless reserves of love and compassion.

Proper Movements in Muslim Prayer can Reduce Lower Back Pain*

Proper Movements in Muslim Prayer can Reduce Lower Back Pain*

Five times a day, roughly 1.6 billion Muslims worldwide, bow, kneel, and place their foreheads to the ground in the direction of the holy city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia, as part of the Islamic prayer ritual, the Salat. According to research, the complex physical movements of the ritual can reduce lower back pain if performed regularly and properly.

According to research at Binghamton University, State University of New York, the complex physical movements of the Islamic prayer ritual, the Salat, can reduce lower back pain if performed regularly and properly.

Five times a day, roughly 1.6 billion Muslims worldwide, bow, kneel, and place their foreheads to the ground in the direction of the holy city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia, as part of the Islamic prayer ritual, the Salat. The ritual is one of the five obligatory elements of the faith set forth by the holy book, the Qur’an.

According to research at Binghamton University, State University of New York, the complex physical movements of the ritual can reduce lower back pain if performed regularly and properly.

“One way to think about the movements is that they are similar to those of yoga or physical therapy intervention exercises used to treat low back pain,” said Professor and Systems Science and Industrial Engineering Department Chair Mohammad Khasawneh, who is one of the authors of “An ergonomic study of body motions during Muslim prayer using digital human modelling.”

While the research focused specifically on Islamic prayer practices, similar movements are also found in Christian and Jewish prayer rituals along with yoga and physical therapy.

The paper was published in the latest issue of the International Journal of Industrial and Systems Engineering. Working with Khasawneh, an interfaith team of Assistant Professor Faisal Aqlan from the Department of Industrial Engineering at Penn State Behrend, Assistant Professor Abdulaziz Ahmed from the Business Department at the University of Minnesota Crookston, and Performance Improvement Consultant Wen Cao from the Department of Operational Performance Improvement at the Peninsula Regional Medical Center were all co-authors of the paper. All three are alumni of the Industrial and Systems Engineering doctoral program at Binghamton University.

“Physical health is influenced by socio-economic, lifestyle and religious factors. Moreover, studies indicate that there is a strong association between prayer and vigilance about maintaining a physically healthy lifestyle,” said Khasawneh.

“Prayer can eliminate physical stress and anxiety, while there is also research that indicates prayer rituals can be considered an effective clinical treatment of neuro-musculoskeletal dysfunction.”

Researchers analyzed statistics based on the movements of computer-generated digital human models of healthy Indian, Asian, and American men and women, and models with lower back pain.

The group found that the bowing portion is the most stressful on the lower back, but for individuals with low back pain, using proper knee and back angles during the ritual can reduce pain. The angles are based on individual body shapes.

“The maximum compression forces created during prayer postures is much lower than National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) safety limits, and the movements can be safely considered a clinical treatment for low back pain, as it requires different movements of the human body on a regular basis,” Khasawneh said.

“Based on the pain level, a combination of back and knee angles can be identified.”

For those with back pain, maintaining exact prayer postures may not be possible. According to Islamic traditions and practices, if individuals cannot stand, they are allowed to pray seated or laying. If they are able to stand, they should maintain correct postures as much as they can.

“The kneeling posture (sujud) increases the elasticity of joints. It is recommended for these individuals to spend more time in the kneeling posture,” Khasawneh said.

According to the research team, using incorrect angles and movements can increase pain. The team also suggested that further study is needed for physically handicapped individuals, those with more extreme body types and women — especially pregnant women — to find the best movements for these groups. The group plans to further validate the findings with physical experiments using sensors and cameras to track the stresses on the individual body parts during the prayer ritual.

The Schumann Resonance Rising and Higher Consciousness*

The Schumann Resonance Rising and Higher Consciousness*

The Schumann resonances are oscillating magnetic frequencies that happen in the Earth’s electromagnetic spectrum. They are said to be generated by electromagnetic changes that happen within the earth’s core, that then affect the earth’s surface, and ionosphere, including the sentient beings living upon it. This resonance has been about the same for hundreds, if not thousands of years, but it seems to be changing. Why?

It has been assumed that the Earth, along with all living things on earth, is surrounded and protected with this natural frequency of pulsation of 7.83 HZ, or the Schumann resonance. The ancient Indian Rishis called this sound, OM. Whether by coincidence or not, it also happens to be a very powerful frequency to use with brainwave entrainment allowing human beings to access their full brains, and heightened consciousness.

Though the Schumann resonance can vary dependent upon the geographic location, it has been hovering around 7.8 cycles per second for years. This resonance is thought to be the ‘heartbeat of the earth,’ an oscillating frequency which we ourselves attune to in order to stay in balance energetically.

Gregg Braden claims to have found evidence that HAARP and other weaponized weather is messing with the Schumann resonance, offering that there is evidence in the Seattle library’s archives, and though this has not been verified, many others have suggested that that the Schumann frequency is not only altered to control us, but that we can also alter it, depending on our own level of consciousness.

In 2014, it was considered anomalous for the Schumann resonance frequency to have risen from its usual 7.83 HZ to somewhere in the 15-25 levels.

You can also track this in real time using the Space Observing System, here.

As the Heart Math institute’s research has revealed by collecting a continuous stream of data from the earth’s magnetic field, there does seem to be a shift occurring in global consciousness, evidenced by changes in the Schumann frequency. You can look at a spectrogram calendar to see the changes for yourself, here.

Moreover, the research suggests that when many people are in peaceful alignment, the resonance changes to reflect that. In other words, we are changing the magnetosphere of the planet with our thoughts and actions. This ‘coherence’ is likely being supported inter-galactically as well.

As NASA details,

“At any given moment about 2,000 thunderstorms roll over Earth, producing some 50 flashes of lightning every second. Each lightning burst creates electromagnetic waves that begin to circle around Earth captured between Earth’s surface and a boundary about 60 miles up. Some of the waves – if they have just the right wavelength – combine, increasing in strength, to create a repeating atmospheric heartbeat known as Schumann resonance. This resonance provides a useful tool to analyze Earth’s weather, its electric environment, and to even help determine what types of atoms and molecules exist in Earth’s atmosphere.

The waves created by lightning do not look like the up and down waves of the ocean, but they still oscillate with regions of greater energy and lesser energy. These waves remain trapped inside an atmospheric ceiling created by the lower edge of the “ionosphere” – a part of the atmosphere filled with charged particles, which begins about 60 miles up into the sky. In this case, the sweet spot for resonance requires the wave to be as long (or twice, three times as long, etc.) as the circumference of Earth. This is an extremely low frequency wave that can be as low as 8 Hertz (Hz) – some one hundred thousand times lower than the lowest frequency radio waves used to send signals to your AM/FM radio. As this wave flows around Earth, it hits itself again at the perfect spot such that the crests and troughs are aligned. Voila, waves acting in resonance with each other to pump up the original signal.

While they’d been predicted in 1952, Schumann resonances were first measured reliably in the early 1960s. Since then, scientists have discovered that variations in the resonances correspond to changes in the seasons, solar activity, activity in Earth’s magnetic environment, in water aerosols in the atmosphere, and other Earth-bound phenomena.”

What NASA does not detail is how human consciousness can interact with these frequencies to change them. The Heart Math Institute calls this global coherence, but it is also known in hundreds of ancient texts as the ‘awakening.’

Additional scientific findings suggest:

  1. The Schumann Resonances are observed by experiment to emerge at several frequencies related to brainwaves. They range between 6 and 50 cycles per second, specifically 7.8 (alpha), 14 (low beta), 20 (mid beta), 26 (high beta), 33 (high beta), 39 (gamma) and 45Hz (gamma), with a daily variation of about +/- 0.5 Hertz.
  2. 83 is the strongest of the seven resonances, in the alpha brainwave range. If the rise in resonance continues, this primary resonance, the earth pulse, changes from sub band low alpha (7-10Hz) to sub band high alpha (10-12Hz), perhaps influencing our ability to deeply relax, balance and integrate our mind/body connection. It could influence REM sleep and dreaming. If it continues to rise, it will breach the threshold into ‘fast’ beta activity. Low beta (12-15Hz) is associated with lack of focused attention, and low beta can even reflect Attention Deficit Disorder.
  3. The amplitude (i.e. intensity) of the Schumann resonance is not constant, and appears to be extremely dependent upon tropical (and hence global) temperature. Indeed preliminary results seem to indicate that a mere one degree increase in temperature seems to be correlated with a doubling of the SR. This could not be more significant, as it is unknown what psychobiological effect these fluctuations could have on humans.

It seems the ‘awakening’ is happening through us, and to us, from within and via ‘external’ influences. Without doubt though the Schumann resonance is changing significantly, what remains to be seen, are the ramifications of these changes.
