Schumann Resonance, Earth Breathing and Alpha Brainwaves

The earth is surrounded by air, and the ionosphere, and it is a wonderfully resonant system. Any energy trapped within this earth-ionosphere cavity, like lightning storms, etc., will cause it to ring like a bell. This frequency was first time calculated and detected by the German physicist Schumann in 1952. He mathematically predicted that the most predominant standing wave resonates around 7.8 Hz. The amazing fact is that this frequency is identical to the Alpha spectrum of human brain waves.

When a person is meditating, praying or deeply relaxed his brain resonates within Alpha and Theta rhythms range of 4-8 Hz. During this relaxed state of mind, waves of Alpha and Theta frequencies cascade across our entire brain, making it possible for the human being and our dear planet Earth to come into resonance. Was this the vibration that ancient sages of India called AUM (Om), the sacred sound of creation? Or perhaps the original Sound of God that was mentioned in Bible? The scientists believe that these waves help regulate our bodies' internal clock, improve sleep patterns, and hormonal secretion.

Schumann Resonance and Healers

For a decade, Dr Robert Beck from US researched the brain wave activity of healers from various backgrounds. He examined Christian healers, shamans, dowsers, wicca practitioners, etc. and each exhibited ‘nearly identical EEG signatures’ during healing of a 7.8-8Hz brainwave activity. It appears that the basic earth’s frequency of 7.8Hz can enhance growth, improve immune responses, and generally re-balance the human body.

Schumann Resonance and Spiritual Practices
Various spiritual practices and spiritual_paths and rituals are designed to allow this magic meditative Alpha range to rain. Bells ringing, shamanic drumming, mantra_chanting, trance dance, meditation, various salutations to God, healing dances, Christian singing, bolster the human brain’s ancient harmonization with the planetary field. Entrainment happens when vibrations of one object cause the vibrations of another object to oscillate at the same rate. Our brain waves are prone to this synchronisation, and external rhythms have a direct effect on our mood, thoughts, emotions and re-action.

Schumann Resonance, Yin and Yang of Creation

Mankind developed with two subtle environmental signals, the Chinese call them Yin and Yang.

The Yang Alpha frequency of the Schumann wave, and the Beta Yin frequency of our waking consciousness.

Our brain dances among these important rhythms changing its functions every 1 to 2 hours, Yogis and Scientists see these happenings observing the dominant nostril exchange, the exchange of the Ida and Pingala energy flow, or left versus right brain dominance. Alpha waves are induced by calmness, inner awareness, creativity and learning while Beta is where our normal waking consciousness is, where we have active thoughts processes switched on, with outer awareness, automatic responses and emotions. It ranges from 13-30Hz.
