The Connection between Alpha Waves and Schumann Resonance
To many people, alpha waves sound like something out of a science fiction movie and Schumann Resonance, well, what that means is anyone’s guess. The problem with that is that both of these phenomena have a direct, powerful influence on your health; you need to know about them, and by the end of this post, you will.
What is Schumann Resonance?
In the mid-1900s, we started to develop technology that opened up a whole new world of information, and we began to make rapid, significant scientific advances. 1951, a scientist named Winfried Otto Schumann discovered that the Earth actually admitted radio waves.
Before then, we had radios, so we knew a bit about frequencies, but we didn’t yet understand that electromagnetic fields emitted from other sources also interact with the human body. Schumann’s discovery was a big deal, though it didn’t seem so to the rest of the scientific community at the time. It was swept under the rug for nearly thirty years.
Schumann resonance, in the simplest of terms, is the average of the Earth’s electromagnetic frequency.
What are Alpha Waves?
These sound like something that would give somebody superpowers, right? Not quite. Thirty years after Schumann made his discoveries, another scientist named Hans Berger was the first person to record the EMF of the human brain via an electroencephalograph or, as we know it now, and EEG. He called them Alpha waves.
What Discoveries Have Been Made?
Unlike Schumann’s findings, Berger’s act was recognized as a big deal, namely because it was the source tremendous strides in medicine.
The trick, though, was that Berger didn’t know anything about Schumann’s work until one Dr. Berger’s colleagues stumbled upon the research and pointed it out to his fellow scientist. Berger picked up where Schumann left off and made a radical discovery: The EMF of the human body was the same as that of the Earth! In other words, our bodies were built to be in harmony with our planet.
Once he started researching this, and the research became public knowledge, other scientists picked up the strings and started doing their own research, primarily in the field of medicine. They knew that the body becomes diseased, but they had no idea why, and this discovery gave them a plausible cause, or at least reason to research further.
Scientists started studying the relationship between the human body’s EMF and reactions that it may have to other frequencies found in our environment. At some point, it became obvious to many that there must be a connection, because EMF are vibrations, and anything that causes our internal organs to vibrate has to have some effect.
What they decided was that there are different levels of EMFs and there are even different frequencies.
Sources of low frequency EMF
Low frequency EMF radiation and extremely low frequency (ELF) radiation have frequencies lower than visible light and are non-iodizing, which means that they don’t have the ability to steal atoms from cells. Sources of low frequency EMF are visible light, cell phones, computers, electric lines, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and MRIs. ELF sources are everything else: vacuum cleaners, TVs, and even electric blankets.
High frequency EMF radiation is thought to be more harmful than low frequency EMF radiation because it’s been proven that because these high frequencies are ionized, which means that they have enough energy to remove an electron from an atom, even in DNA.
It’s this type of cellular mutation that can lead to cancer growth. Some common sources are Gamma rays, x-rays, and UV light. Since Gamma rays – the culprit behind the Incredible Hulk, are mostly emitted in space, we really don’t have to worry about them. You do need to worry about UV light though, considering the sun is a huge source of it.
Major studies conducted by such pioneers in the field as Dr. Nancy Wertheimer and Ed Leeper began studying the relationship between EMF exposure and childhood leukemia in 1979. Three major initial studies did indeed find a link between the two. It’s been studied extensively since then and the incidental relationship is still strong.
Before you start thinking that all of this sounds all New-Agey, if you want to source-check this info, try the American Cancer Society. They have decades of ongoing research into this area.
How is This Connection Relevant to Human Health
So now you know that your body has an EMF, the earth has an EMF, and every source of energy, including the sun, have EMFs. Yes, we’re studying how these EMFs affect the body, but, as with most things in modern Western medicine, mainstream research is focusing on the treatment rather than the prevention.
They also aren’t looking at specific frequencies and how they relate to the human body; therefore, many of them don’t consider what would happen if you re-balanced the energy in your body with the Earth and found a way to block EMFs of all frequencies not your own. Why not, you may ask. It’s a good question, and one that many non-mainstream researchers are considering.
Why are we Experiencing a Disconnection from Schumann Resonance?
To answer this question, we have to take a look at the technological advances we’ve made in the last hundred years or so. Tesla first demonstrated AC power at the 1893 World Fair. Edison began building the first commercial electric company, and two years later, we harnessed the power of Niagara Falls. That brought us full-out into the age of engineering.
In 1901, Marconi sent the very first transatlantic radio message, then in 1907, the vacuum tube was created, which gave us radio. Finally, in WWII, we introduced the microwave, which Einstein’s work shows do not ever leave our atmosphere. And look at all of the advancements and additional EMFs added to the environment since then.
In just over one hundred years, we’ve filled the first mile above the Earth with two million times the amount of EMF that we faced in 1900. Sounds like something that almost has to have an effect on us, right?
Our Alpha waves have become way out of synch with Schumann resonance because of the competing EMFs. We are out of synch with our planet and awash in a sea of differing frequencies regardless of where we are.
What Happens When We’re Disconnected from our Natural Frequency
There’s a good experiential example that I can give you here. What happens when your radio is between stations instead of on one that it connects with? All you get is static, or, even worse, two or more stations talking over each other, vying for the air waves. They interfere with each other.
So think about what happens when your body’s out of touch with its natural frequency. Numerous illnesses have been linked to EMFs, including
- Headaches and Migraines
- Heart Disease
How to Protect Yourself from EMFs
There was a study conducted by Geoffrey Donovan from the US Forest Service’s Pacific Northwest Research Station in Oregon. For 18 years, they collected data from 1296 counties in 15 states regarding the loss of 100 million ash trees that were destroyed by an invasive beetle. The study found that citizens who lived in areas infested by the beetle (and thus divested of their trees) had 15,000 additional deaths from cardiovascular disease and 6000 more deaths from respiratory disease than their fellow Americans who didn’t lose their trees. The findings add significant weight to the growing mountain of evidence that shows that nature provides serious health benefits.
One of these may be because when you’re in a heavily wooded area, you’re more isolated from EMFs because the trees and foliage serve as a buffer, and you’re right there close to the Earth, which is emitting the same frequency as you, so you can re-synch.
EMFs from appliances and electronics even several feet or yards away in your house project disruptive EMFs, so you can be proactive by turning off and unplugging anything electric that isn’t in use. You may also want to consider a device that shields your body from these potentially harmful waves. Find out more here.
There’s research out there now that suggests that it’s possible to do that. Some companies sell whole-house devices that cancel out the EMFs in a room or house, and some, such as Vital Protect, sell gadgets that you wear on your person to keep competing EMFs from interfering with your natural EMF signature.
Whichever option you choose – and none of these are mutually exclusive – your goal is to subject yourself to as few EMFs, especially high frequency EMFs, as possible so that your body can remain in synch with the planet and maintain its own frequency, and this its health.
I wish you wellness and happiness!
