The entire physical universe consists of pure energy and vibrations, which are mostly terra incognita for humans, therefore we can detect and use only a small fraction of it.
Everything vibrates at a certain frequency widely known as electromagnetic energies – with a certain effects on the planet Earth and all living beings.
An electromagnetic field is an area of space filled with magnetic and electric energy. Electromagnetic fields are everywhere. High-frequency electromagnetic radiation, like x-rays and gamma rays, is “ionizing” and might be harmful to people, while visible light which is low-frequency electromagnetic radiation, or “non-ionizing,” is considered safe to humans, or even a cure to some human diseases.
Electromagnetic fields are produced by any device that uses electricity, but are mostly produced naturally. A large, low-frequency electromagnetic field is produced by the Earth’s core, as a part of our atmosphere called the magnetosphere.
Electromagnetic radiation and people
Earth is surrounded by a layer of electrically charged particles called the ionosphere, which is situated about 80 km from the crust. The ionosphere forms a so-called capacitor with the Earth. This means that there is a difference in electrical potential between the Earth being negatively charged and the ionosphere being positively charged. This is a fundamental type of electrical generator. The solar winds, interacting with the upper atmosphere rotation, act as a collector and brushes of a generator. The lower atmosphere can be seen as a storage battery for this gradient potential.
The ionosphere protects us from harmful radiation from the sun and deep space. However, some electrical waves may cause, or are linked with pathological changes in human cells and may cause abnormal changes in immune responses.
Earth’s ionosphere produces a pulsation; a set of electromagnetic waves that bounce around the Earth, which is a frequency between 3 to 60 Hz. It is discovered that main pulsation Earth frequency appear at extremely low frequencies is around 7.83Hz discovered by Winfried Otto Schumann in 1952, and since then known as the Schumann Resonance. The Schumann Resonances are a set of frequencies produced by electromagnetic waves in Earth's lower ionosphere, and distributed with the help of the Earths’ surface around the planet. Such frequencies cause repeating natural Earth electromagnetic “heartbeat” energies and is naturally excited by electric currents in lightning. Electromagnetic fields are also created and amplified by the regular occurrence of lightning storms around the world.
At any given time about 2000 thunderstorm across the globe produce around 50 lightning events per second. Schumann resonances have been used to track global lightning activity due to connection between lightning activity and the Earth's climate seen in global temperature variations. It is possible to monitor global temperature with the Schumann resonances. Electromagnetic field around the Earth reach our bodies and affect the charges inside of it. Our bodies have its own electrostatic field. Even particles of DNA can produce electromagnetic fields.
A large number of studies have identified significant physical, biological and health effects associated with changes in Solar and Geomagnetic Activity.
Schumann resonance effect on people
Our brains adapt and resonance to electromagnetic planetary frequencies. The organization of all cells is formed by stimulation of various electrodynamic fields.
Schumann's Resonance are closely related to human brainwaves. There are correlations between the Schumann resonance and human brain rhythms. It is found many interlinked health issues related to disturbed circadian rhythms in people separated from the Earth frequency. Many health issues are treated successfully after having been exposured to 7.8Hz Schumann Resonance waves. We might speculate that the human brain naturally resonates in different frequencies to balance with the planetary cycles.
It has been proven that human autonomic nervous system responds to changes in solar and geomagnetic activity, affecting human health and human performance. Irregular physiological rhythms were successfully restored after being exposed to a 10Hz electrical field as well.
The brain through the nervous system transmits electro low frequencies signals throughout the body. Such vibrations are distinguished by the speed with which neurons fire in cycles per second. Humans’ electromagnetic energies are mostly defined by different brain frequencies, or different states of consciousness which are measured by electroencephalograph in microvolts.
Schumann's resonances are manifested at several frequencies related to brain waves and can express five different states of consciousness such as: beta, alpha, delta, theta, and gamma waves, which are comparable to the frequencies on a radio. Changes in those frequencies are linked to behavior and physiological changes. The most common and stable resonance out of seven is 7,83 Hz.
Those waves maintance our bodies internal clock and affect sleep patterns and hormonal secretion.
Alpha brain waves (8-12 Hz) indicate a relaxed state of mind and readiness to learning. It is present during sleeping and light meditative state of mind. Many neurological studies have shown that learning in Alpha state enhances the performance of students. It is the entry point to deeper states of consciousness.
Theta brain waves (4-7 Hz) are linked to deep meditation, and deeper state of mental concentration, and dreaming. It is linked to stress reduction, deep learning, and intuition. Gamma waves (25-60 Hz) are closely linked to multitask processes such as modulated perception and consciousness.
Beta waves (12-25 Hz) is related to cognitive state of consciousness and the outside world. It does present alertness, decision making, and readiness to focus state of mind.
Delta waves (0-4 Hz) are present during deepest meditation and dreamless sleep. Delta waves stimulates healing processes in the body, as it triggers production of a growth hormone which is linked in healing and regeneration.
What’s interesting is the fact that Schumann Resonance frequency (7.83 Hz), falls between the alpha brainwave and the theta brainwave. Among the five types of brain waves, the alpha brain wave is in the middle and is associated with relaxation. It is no surprise that this frequency helps us feel relaxed and facilitate a state of consciousness and open intuitive learning.
Some research suggests that electromagnetic fields may play a role in regulating our bodily functions and maintaining health.
Schumann resonance and immune system
Schumann resonance waves are well received by brains influencing the serotonin/melatonin balance. As we are aware melatonin is a hormone that pineal gland of the brain produces in response to darkness, and helps with our internal clock (circadian rhythms), in order to manage our natural sleep cycle. In addition, melatonin is involved in immune mechanism, and as an antioxidant for cells reparation.
Serotonin plays several roles in your body, including influencing learning, memory, happiness as well as regulating body temperature, sleep, sexual behavior and hunger. Serotonin plays a key role in staving off anxiety and depression. In summary, electromagnetic waves especially Schumann Resonance waves help regulate our bodies' internal clock, affect sleep patterns, and hormonal secretion.
Endocrine system is very much connected to diurnal (circadian) cycle thru Melatonin/Serotonin system, which operate operate between the pineal gland and the hypothalamus. A very important part of the hypothalamus is the suprachiamatic nucleus (SCN) because it contains the "biological clock". Melatonin modulates the functional sensitivity of the serotonin receptors.
Cells in living beings respond between 3-25 Hz, and a brain alike electromagnetic system is synchronized by the Schumann Resonance signal. Scientists found that 7.83 Hz is the dominant brain wave rhythm of all mammals in alpha or resting state.
The frequency 0.1 Hz influences circulatory system, while 7.8 Hz stimulates hippocampus, 10 Hz circadian rhythms, and 33 Hz balance lymphatic system.
For example, research has found that applied Schumann resonance weak electromagnetic signal can help healing acute multiple sclerosis (MS), and Parkins syndrome. Our body, especially internal organs, such as brains, is sensitive to changes in geomagnetic fields because human control systems are based on mechanisms of electric conduction. With the same fashion our physiology can be interfered by geomagnetic storms For example, one study found that artificially created geomagnetic storms were associated with loss of circadian patterns in the rhythms of cardiac function.
Schumann resonance and sleeping disorders
Scientific studies concluded that extremely low frequency (3 Hz to 30 Hz) with frequencies similar to Schumann resonances may improve quality of sleep for people suffering from insomnia. Reduction of insomnia is evident after people being exposed to Schumann resonance for four weeks’ time.
Schumann resonance and cardiovascular disorders
The cardiovascular system is regulated with melatonin receptors in the heart, arteries and lungs. Researchers around the globe, especially in Japan, found that people who were systemically exposed to Schumann resonance days for 4 weeks’ time, significantly improved their cardiovascular conditions.
It is found that both systolic blood and diastolic pressure tend to be lower on enhanced Schumann resonance days. Studies concluded that Schumann resonances have an effect on blood pressure and heart rate, and overall improve humans’ health.
Schumann resonance (alpha and theta waves 7.83Hz) music therapy
Schumann Resonance frequency (7.83 Hz), falls between the alpha brainwave and the theta brainwave.
It has been known that Alpha/Theta waves music therapy significantly increases alpha and reduces beta activity over time in patients with major depression, schizophrenia, or anxiety symptoms.
Schumann resonance waves are greatly beneficial for patients with schizophrenia as well. Schumann resonance music therapy may be a possible therapeutic approach to chronic pain, as it might relieve the patient’s negative emotions in chronic pain therapy. Other benefits of Schumann resonance waves are: increased focus, concentration, and motivation, improved confidence, and better long term memory and enhanced psychomotor performance and mood.
To listen to Schumann resonance waves, a person will need a pair of stereo headphones and a music player of a sort. It is important to avoid using Schumann resonance waves therapy while undertaking tasks that require alertness and full attention, such as driving. Schumann resonance music is available in all major music platforms across Internet. If you do not see any health benefits from listening to particular Theta waves music, it is a sign to try different Alpha soundtrack.
It is believed that one way to manipulate all brainwave types and feel less stressed is through meditation. Regular meditation helps to increase the alpha activity and decrease beta during waking states. Meditation also enhances gamma wave state. Another effective tip is listening to binaural beats as they enhance specific brainwave states.
Additional activities to activities alpha/theta
Numerous activities which might influence serotonin/melatonin level can be significant in activation of Alpha and Theta waves. We can increase both waves by doing: Biofeedback training, Meditation, Deep breathing, Regular aerobic sport activities, Yoga, Tai ji quan and Qi gong.
