Is a rise in the Schumann Resonance “real”?

As the alleged increases in the Schumann Resonance have continued, along with much conversation about the same, an expectable backlash has arisen from those who dispute that anything is “happening” and even Heartmath whose data many of us refer to, have issued a statement to an enquirer (see original article, permission given by Heartmath to share) seeming to say this. When someone drew this to my attention and asked what I thought, it (very usefully) forced me to consider why it is that I am not wavering on my my base opinion that something is happening here, that its new since the start of 2017 and in the feeling that it is rising up from “beneath our feet” as such (different to the “Space Weather” that some of us sensitives are accustomed to monitoring with our bodies as it comes “in” at us from above…and perhaps getting to know one has sensitised us to the other; first yang and now yin!) Here’s what I found myself saying.

Perhaps “Schumann Resonance” has become a catch-all label for something that is not only happening but which many of us – and that includes me – are feeling happen in the most powerful, visceral, cellular way that we are scrabbling for a label to apply to it, so we can usefully refer to it and tell others it is happening. Having tracked the rhythms of these new sensations (and I’m not the only one I know to be having them), I can confirm mine coincide with the “ups” in the SR that have been recorded, which in each case is something I have confirmed after the symptoms affect me. I’ve even considered that it is (the ever increasing number of) those having the experience that are “making” the new vibe happen, giving it form and coherence through our bodily experiences then amplifying it through owning (with our senses, our voices) that it is new and occurring, like an evolutionary rolling wave. We always knew we were going to be that wave, didn’t we? Why would we let other people’s opinions shut that down already? Interesting how the common tendency (and I admit to noticing the same “well-behaved” impulse rise in myself…) is to defer to the science when it says “nope, its just not happening”. As soon as I read that article, part of me felt like becoming the naysayer to my own experiences, denying them, saying “how silly, of course not, what was I thinking, I’m not a scientist so clearly I know nothing” before crawling back into my corner and hanging my head…

Another important factor to remember here is that what the counter argument is using to dispute a rise in the SR is “science”, which is something (I think most explorers around these broader topics now concede) that has such a limited and blinkered way at trying to describe what we are seeing unfold here as our next great evolution. Useful, deserving of respect…yes…but far from capable of explaining and putting to bed everything that arises in our experiences. It already has the labelled box held out ready to gather our next-newest experiences and put the lid on them and is trying to squeeze these much broader and far less fathomable expressions of reality into it; from which perspective it is very easy to scoff and say “dont be silly” to what we are viscerally feeling unfold. Science and its terminology aren’t able to contain this “thing” (whatever it is) since it is too new and unknown to conform to what we think we know…and those of us that are feeling it are (in a sense) trying to meet scientists half way by using labels such as Schumann Resonance and the science those people think is so concrete around that topic to describe our experiences. We are trying to play nice by using terms and labels that slot together as the jigsaw puzzle of left and right hemispherical experience; so of course that means playing loose and fancy-free with terms and definitions that arn’t our natural domain. We were just trying to communicate with the natives of “logical land” but perhaps that experiment in communication relied too much on us overstepping the line into territory where we are simply not welcomed and are too often belittled back to cloud-cuckoo-land where we supposedly daydream our lives away wearing crowns of daisies and hugging all the trees!

Perhaps what our next leap forwards as a species calls for is that scientists meet us supersensitives (those of us who know something big is happening with every tingle of our body) half way, conceding that many of us (just SO many of us…growing in numbers) are feeling something going on and are not imagining it…no way…and that those experiences are as valid as anything their monitoring stations happen to record. We are so eager to commission high-cost technology to monitor such things but what about us; what about using our own in-built sensory devices and why are we so persistently distrustful of this method? The jury is out as to how much of what we are feeling could be man-made in its origin; nonetheless, something is going down and our sensitivity to geomagnetic variables makes us the canaries in the coalmine (I’m not suggesting this is to our detriment…but, certainly, we are the harbingers of some necessary changes) of whatever it is. I also find the variance of readings between monitoring stations (according to global location) interesting in light of everything I have come to understand about the 12th degree latitude line that Dr Calleman refers to as dividing the left and right hemispheres of the planet and along which all of our previous evolutions have birthed in a way that history demonstrates amply (“the line separating the two hemispheres is located at 12 degrees longitude east, plus or minus two degrees” – from “The Global Mind and the Rise of Civilization: The Quantum Evolution of Consciousness). Presumably each of these evolutionary “bursts” began as a feeling that some people felt and responded to; others…not so sure to start with and things are likely to get more lively around that geographical location though we can only speculate what form this will take. In fact all of this takes on a new layer of interest in light of the rhythms of the Ninth Wave of evolution – always interesting to track one against the rhythms of the other, and as ever I refer you to Calleman’s books and my various blogs on the topic.

Even Heartmath (who to some extent, I can well imagine, feel responsible for calming down any kind of hysterical response to the SR, especially since their mission is to direct the planet towards a state of increasing calm and coherence, not the opposite) are at the mercy of “not really knowing” what is afoot, as are we all. As they say “there is no doubt that the electromagnetic conditions on our planet are changing” (yes, tell me about it) and that “the SR’s spike from time to time and we feel the effects of this…” So, what if these spikes have always been our wake up call but we weren’t quite ready (until now…some of us…and more and more since the Ninth Wave arrived) to “hear” this call. Just a thought!

About Helen White

Helen White is a professional artist and published writer with two primary blogs to her name. Her themes pivot around health and wellbeing, expanded consciousness and ways of noticing how life is a constant dance between the deeply subjective and the collective-universal, all of which she explores with a daily hunger to get to know herself better. Her blog Living Whole shines a light on living with high sensitivity, dealing with trauma and healing from chronic health issues. Spinning the Light is an extremely broad-based platform where she elucidates the everyday alchemy of relentless self-exploration. A lifetime of "feeling like an outsider" slowly emerged as neurodivergence (being a Highly Sensitive Person with ADHD, synaesthesia, sensory processing challenges and other defecits overlapping with giftedness). All of these topics are covered in her blogs, written from two distinct vantage points so, if you have enjoyed one of them, you may wish to explore the other for a different, yet entirely complimentary, perspective.

    You are correct, something is happening here (Mr. Jones)
