Natural Magnetic Fields Schumann Waves Primer
W.O. Schumann, a German astrophysicist, in 1952 hypothesized that the earth acts as a resonant cavity between the earth’s surface and the ionosphere.
Schumann waves are a range of very important, naturally occurring electromagnetic fields that circulate within the Earth’s ionosphere. They encircle the earth traveling horizontally through all animate and inanimate objects.
A frequency modulated (FM) electromagnetic field in the frequency range of 1 to 100 Hz is created by the approximately 200 lightning bolts that occur globally every second.
The lightning bolts create a very weak resonating direct current (DC). magnetic field with the dominant harmonic frequencies between 0.5 and 15Hz
The long accepted view was that they are caused by solar particles trapped by gravity. More recently they have been attributed to electromagnetic waves generated by lightening which resonate through the ionospheric cavity at light-speed.
Schumann waves have been consistent at particular frequencies with little variation for hundreds of millions of years.
Life forms upon the Earth evolved in them and rely on them for optimum physical, psychological and emotional health. They influence the natural biomagnetic fields as well as human and animal psychobiology by ‘tuning’ (entraining) brain waves to its natural rhythms. Call it ‘grounding’ if you like.
Today, Schumann waves are being overpowered by man made detrimental EMF from cell phone, radio towers, satellites and even the wiring and appliances in your home.
The body can no longer detect the Schumann waves over the manmade electronic noise.. THIS IS WHY PEOPLE ARE NOT SLEEPING WELL ANYMORE.
Without adequate Schumann wave exposure our neurological system is free to ‘entrain’ or run to higher (and higher) frequencies due to high frequency EMF pollution, This reduces body’s ability to attain deep, recuperative Delta rhythm sleep and simultaneously cripples energy generation systems.
There are several Schumann wave frequencies, of which we’ve chosen the lowest and most prominent ones beginning with the 0.5 Hz. peak and ending with 14.1 Hz peak. It sweeps through those frequencies at just 1/10th Hz steps, pauses on .5, 7.8, 9.6 Hz (where the mitochondrial magic happens) and shuts down at 14.1 Hz upon completion of the WAKE-UP PHASE.
