What is the Schumann Resonance or Schumann Resonances?

The Schumann Resonance measures the number of lightning discharges on planet Earth over a given time frame.

These resonances, or discharges, occur between the cavity formed by the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere.

The ionosphere (/ˈɒnəˌsfɪər/[1][2]) is the ionized part of Earth’s upper atmosphere, from about 60 km (37 mi) to 1,000 km (620 mi) altitude, a region that includes the thermosphere and parts of the mesosphere and exosphere. The ionosphere is ionized by solar radiation.  (

The Earth’s ionosphere changes when solar radiation changes

So the sun affects the ionosphere when it transmits less or more solar radiation.

Any change in solar output can create thunderstorms.

On average the Earth’s atmosphere creates about 2,000 thunderstorms at any given time (  This results in 50 flashes of lightning every second.

These lightning bursts create waves of electromagnetic energy.  The waves created are captured in Earth’s atmosphere and ‘bounce’ between the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere.

The Earth’s ‘heartbeat’

Some of these waves have just the right wavelength to combine and create an atmospheric ‘heartbeat’.

This heartbeat is the Schumann Resonance!

Measurable Schumann Resonance occurs as a result of the energy waves measuring the same length as the circumference of the Earth.  Schumann Resonance also occurs when the waves are twice, or three times as long.

(The Schumann Resonance is named after the physicist W.O. Schumann, who published the results of his research about these resonances in a journal.)

Q: Why care about the Schumann Resonance? A: It affects human brainwaves!

These Schumann Resonance waves can be measured as low as 8Hz.  The lowest-frequency mode measured is approximately 7.83 hertz (Hz), with a daily variation of about ± 0.5 Hz. The other frequencies are 14, 20, 26, 33, 39, and 45 Hz. (

Shortly after W.O. Schumann published his research, a physician called Dr. Ankermuller made the connection between the Schumann Resonance and the alpha rhythm of brain waves. (

Following further research with doctoral candidates revealed that the first five Schumann Resonances overlap with brain frequency bands.

These five frequency bands and correlating states of mind are as follows:-

  1. Delta – 0.5Hz – 4Hz  Sleep and deep meditation, drowsiness.
  2. Theta – 4Hz -7Hz Theta state can feel very spiritual, inspired, and calm.  Regular meditators may often achieve Theta waves in their brains for extended periods of time.  (Think Tibetan monks, for example).
  3. Alpha – 8Hz -12Hz  Reflection or light meditation, taking a walk in nature.
  4. Beta 12Hz – 30Hz  A person in active conversation would be in Beta, working talking, even giving a speech.
  5. Gamma 30Hz – 100Hz  Both hemispheres of the brain are simultaneously processing.  Gamma waves are the frequencies that whales and dolphins often display.  In humans, we experience the Gamma state as superconsciousness and awareness, bliss.

Since these discoveries, the resonances have been recorded as fluctuating in an 11-year cycle, that is, until very recently.

What may people feel in their minds and bodies when these resonances change?

When these resonances change, as a result, mammalian brain frequencies are entrained to the Schumann Resonances to some degree.  Entrained means following, or matching in an energetic sense.

So, when you pull forward at a red light in your car, because the person next to you is turning on their green light in their care, that’s energetic entrainment.

On January 31, 2017, for the first time in recorded history, the Schumann resonance reached frequencies of 36+ Hz. It was considered an anomaly when in 2014 this frequency rose from its usual 7.83 Hz to somewhere in the 15-25 Hz levels—so a jump from 7.83 Hz to 36+ Hz is a big deal. That’s more than a five-fold increase in resonant frequency levels. What does this mean to us as inhabitants of Mother Earth? According to neuroscience, frequency recordings of 36+ Hz in the human brain are more associated with a stressed nervous system than a relaxed and healthy one.  (

As an energy worker, I have studied the human electromagnetic field for over 20 years now.  Practicing the EMF Balancing Technique®, I experience a strong shift to the Theta state, even the Gamma state during sessions, and clients report this too.

Bioresonance tools show that EMF Balancing Technique® practitioners experience a brainwave shift to Theta and Gamma more often than not while giving sessions.

Brainwave frequency can also be influenced by other new energy psychology consciousness tools, such as Akashic Records work.

Stay Conscious, Stay Balanced!

When the Schumann resonance fluctuates in unusually large amounts, it’s important to check ourselves and do even more work to balance ourselves energetically!

If you want to check the Schumann Resonances for yourself over time, here are some links to internet tools for that purpose.
