We don’t live “on Earth!” We live “in it” or to be more specific, we live in the cavity between Earth’s surface and its protective outer layer — that is, the ionosphere, which is also where the Schumann Resonance occurs.
Does the Schumann Resonance affect us?
You bet! Simply put, we are linked to the Schumann Resonance! Break or disrupt the connection and we get sick, weak, headaches, behave bizarrely, tired but problems sleeping, loud buzz in ears, etc. it affects different people in different ways, and can affect animals and other things, as well.
Even though the Schumann Resonance is caused by lightning, it has a stable frequency of 7.83 Hz. This frequency of 7.83 Hz falls within the range of natural human alpha brainwaves, the optimum state for well-being and healing.
In other words, the Schumann Resonance frequency acts as a background frequency that influences the biological circuitry of our brains and bodies.
What is the Schumann Resonance?
In the 1950s, a German scientist named Winfred Otto Schumann — after whom Schumann resonance is named — predicted that electromagnetic signals resonate in the cavity between the earths surface and the ionosphere. The ionosphere is a region of the atmosphere extending from a height of about 40 miles to 250 miles above the surface of the earth, containing atoms that have been ionized by radiation from the sun.
The Schumann Resonance is a set of spectrum peaks in the extremely low frequency (ELF) portion of the Earth’s electromagnetic field spectrum. These resonances are global electromagnetic resonances, generated and excited by lightning discharges in the cavity formed by the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere.
When NASA first sent humans outside of Earth’s atmosphere, they would return in a weak and sickly condition. It was soon realized that the problem was the “disconnection from the Schumann Resonance.”
Now the 7.83 Hz resonance is integrated into all spacecraft and space suits, enabling astronauts to spend more time in space without getting sick. The Iinternational Space Station also incorporates the Schumann Resonance, enabling astronauts stay in space for longer periods.
Circadian Rhythms are also integrated into spacecraft and space suits to help maintain a healthy environment. A circadian rhythm, or circadian cycle, is a natural, internal process that regulates the sleep–wake cycle and repeats roughly every 24 hours.
The stable resonance shown below has seven distinct peaks. The lower frequencies have the highest (strongest) amplitude
A Comparison of Brainwave Frequencies and Schumann Peaks
Compare these frequencies to the normal frequency of human brainwaves:
- 7.83 Hz, 14.1 Hz, 20.3 Hz, 27.3 Hz, 33.8 Hz, 39 Hz, and 45 Hz
- Delta (0.1 Hz–4 Hz) Brainwaves at lowest consciousness
- Theta (4 Hz–7 Hz) Brainwaves during meditation
- Alpha (7 Hz-12 Hz) Brainwaves during normal activity
- Beta (13 Hz-30 Hz) Brainwaves during high alert or agitation
- Gamma (30 Hz-40 Hz) Brainwaves during integrated memory processing
So let’s see where each of the 5 brainwave frequencies are in relation to each of the 7 Schumann peaks. The image below shows the Schuman Resonance peaks overlaid on each of the five human brainwave frequencies.
When does resonance occur?
Resonance occurs when a given system is tuned to a certain frequency and begins to oscillate, or amplifies the presence of a preferential external frequency.
Put another way, you switch on a radio, and tune it to your favorite radio station. The speakers oscillate producing sound.
This is pretty much what happens when you’re exposed to the Schumann Resonance. Your brain frequency resonates with and entrains (body gradually syncs with) the Schumann Resonance.
