Mother Earth has a measurable heartbeat of 7.83 Hz, and according to NASA, her heartbeat has fluctuated more in the past few years than it has in the past six decades.

The last time scientists saw similar energy frequencies was in the ‘60s. Astrologers will tell you this is from the change in the planets, the “Age Of Aquarius” which only comes around every 2,000 years, and all agree that there is definitely a shift in energy taking place. Ironically, all of this was predicted by the Mayan Calendar.

The earth’s vibrational energy, or global electromagnetic resonance, was first measured in the early ‘60s. It was named the Schumann Resonance (SR), after physicist Winfried Otto Schumann who predicted it mathematically in 1952. It provides a useful tool to analyze earth’s weather and to determine what type of atoms and molecules exist in the earth’s atmosphere.

These extremely low-frequencies (ELF) are caused by thousands of lightning strikes in the atmosphere. According to NASA, 2,000 thunderstorms batter our planet every minute with an average of 50 lightning strikes a second. These vibrations can be found in waves that go 60 miles above the earth and can be felt by electronic communications – and even the human brain – down here on the surface. 

At the beginning of the 20th century, futurist innovator Nikola Tesla said, “Our entire biological system, the brain and the earth itself, work on the same frequencies.” It has now been scientifically proven that tuning into the planet’s magnetic frequency (7.83Hz) can create biological benefits like enhanced learning and memory, cellular rejuvenation, improved balance and stress tolerance, anti-jetlag and grounding. Other studies show that removing the frequency from the environment can have negative impacts such as migraine headaches and emotional distress. This shows how important it is to be in tune with earth’s magnetic frequency.

Thus, with the earth’s fluctuating heartbeat, it’s no wonder that many of us have been feeling off lately. The earth is experiencing a powerful time and so are we. On the grand scale, there is not much we can do to change the vibrational frequency, but awareness can lead to compassion and self-care. 

We are electric magnetic beings and the connection between the universal heavens and earth can affect our lives. It’s a good time to practice balance through yoga, meditation, affirmations, prayers, grounding, taking time in nature, acupuncture, massage, energy healing and eating whole foods that nourish our body.  

We are moving into an age of awareness and consciousness and are at a reflection point of keeping Mother Earth healthy so she can help keep us healthy. Be kind to yourself and take time to thank her.

Note: With numerous monitoring stations in the U.S., Russia, Canada and Australia, the Schumann Resonance can be viewed online at (see link below).
