The “magic” frequency of 8 Hz, the Schumann resonance and our chakras

Rupert Sheldrake describes our bodies as nested hierarchies of vibrational frequencies that occur as discrete systems within larger systems and more complicated. A world of vibrational structures from those basic to the increasingly large and increasingly complex. In fact, the entire universe, from sub-atomic particles, to the more complicated life forms, to nebulae and galaxies, can be considered as a giant set of resonance fields of energy, all in constant interaction with each other.

Therefore, it is quite plausible to believe that externally imposed vibration can have an influence on our physiology. Well, there is an external frequency, an electromagnetic vibration that accompanies us, envelops us since our birth, in fact, ever since the first Homo Sapiens appeared on this planet.  It is the Schumann resonance, a huge global phenomenon of magnetic resonance imaging, which takes its name from the physicist Winfried OttoSchumann who predicted it mathematically in 1952. The Earth’s surface and ionosphere interact like two giant plates of a capacitor, where the Earth is the negative part of the ionosphere and the positive part.

This electromagnetic structure is in constant vibration, creating electromagnetic waves at very low frequency (ELF), whose main peaks are 7.83, 14.3, 20.8, 27.3 and 33.8 Hz

Well, since Schumann published the results of his research, there were those who, like Ankermueller, immediately connected the Schumann resonance with the alpha rhythm of the brain (about 8 Hz!). The scientist Herbert König (Schumann’s successor at the University of Monaco of Bavaria) has shown that there is indeed a correlation between the frequencies of Schumann resonances and rhythms of the brain. In 1979, König has compared human EEG recordings with electromagnetic fields of natural environment andfound that the main frequency produced by the Schumann oscillations is very close to thefrequency of alpha rhythm. Warning: very near, but not exactly identical to those canons 8 Hzthat are any books that deal with brain frequencies studied with the EEG! Need to be talk again of this small but crucial difference. For now we address the problem from the standpoint of general …

The researchers found that those waves of 7.83 Hz Schumann resonate at the samefrequency of the hippocampus in our brain. The hippocampus is part of the limbic system onthe survival and memory. Here’s what Wikipedia says:

The hippocampus is a part of the brain, located in the medial temporal lobe. It is a part of the hippocampal formation, and of the limbic system and plays an important role in long-term memory and spatial navigation. Humans and other mammals have two hippocampus, one in each hemisphere of the brain. In rodents, animals in which the hippocampus has been studied in depth, the hippocampus has roughly the shape of a banana. In humans, it has acurved shape and convoluted, which inspired the early anatomists the image of a seahorse. The name, in fact, derives from the greek (Greek: hippos = horse, campos = sea).

In Alzheimer’s the hippocampus is one of the first regions of the brain to suffer damage, memory loss and disorientation are the first symptoms appearing. Lesions to the hippocampus can occur as a result of lack of oxygen (anoxia), encephalitis or medial temporal lobe epilepsy. People with extensive damage to the tissue may show hippocampalamnesia, ie inability to form or retain new memories.

Although no research so far showed that the frequencies of Schumann are modified is more true that the huge amount increasing spread of electromagnetic fields in space comes into conflict with Earth’s natural electromagnetic energy, which some have called: the breath of the Earth.These interferences are proving so so serious that NASA uses the tools that are a sort ofimitation of Schumann waves artificially in order to protect the brains of astronauts in space,where the frequencies of Schumann disappear or come into serious conflict with electromagnetic waves sent by the sun and the cosmos.

The same was done for the Russian cosmonauts, when the space scientists have found that the interference with waves of Schumman had a harmful influence on health and wellness. Interference that may causeillness and death!

Let’s take a step back and take a closer look at brain wave frequencies and their connectionto the chakras.

The range of beta waves is between 13 and 40 Hz.The state of consciousness associated with beta waves is related to the concentration, vigilance and heightened visual acuity. The frequency of 40Hz beta is believed to beconnected to the process of cognition. 

The range of alpha waves is between 8 and 12 hertz.

They are characteristic of deep relaxation, but a state of consciousness is not deep enough to already be able to define meditation. In the alpha state, we begin to access the wealth of our creativity. It ‘a kind of portal into deeper states of consciousness.

The range of theta waves is between 4 and 8 Hz.

The domain of theta is perhaps the most extraordinary and most elusive. It ‘also the most difficult to remember because, normally, is the fleeting state of transition between wakefulness and sleep or waking up in the reverse transition from sleep to wakefulness. In the theta state, we can experience the rapid flash of images called hypnagogic imagery, a very mysterious experience. Other times, these flashes consist of sounds or voices. And this state of trance, of hypnotic trance, of hypnagogic images, direct access to the unconscious. And so, the theta state is  free of screens of self defense, but learning is complete and perfect. In theta, we live the best of our creativity, intuition and other extrasensory perception skills, such as telepathy.

The range of delta waves varies between 0 and 4 Hz.

The delta state is associated with coma and deep sleep, which was once believed that il is without dreams and instead turned out to be a period of vivid dreams. One was related to release of growth hormone GH, connected to healing and regeneration and the release of melatonin, another hormone that can synchronize our biological clock and to stimulate the immune system. This is why it is so refreshing sleep is so essential to the healing process.

The transition from one to another of these states of consciousness brings great changes in our energy structure.

In the beta state the ajna chakra is very active.

In the alpha state the frontal chakra is very active.

In the theta state the anteriore crown chakra is very active.

In the delta state the central crown chakra is very active.
