Have you ever felt more at peace when you go on a nature hike? Do tend to have feelings of tranquility and serenity when you spend time with mother nature? Recently I was listening to one of John Denver’s songs “Rocky Mountain High” and I was reminded again about the vibrational frequencies we possess as humans and the resonance of the earth.
The resonance of Earth otherwise known as the Schumann Resonance is the vibration of the Earth’s atmospheric cavity. The Earth has resonated at 7.83 Hertz for thousands of years, although recently there are many sites all over the Internet that claim this cycle is increasing as we approach the year 2012. It is this resonance along with our vibrational energies that I believe allows us to feel more at peace when we escape from the cities and go immerse ourselves with nature.
Our brains are basically living electromagnetic organs. It has been shown that our brains emit electromagnetic waves in four sets of frequencies:
- Delta- 0-3 Hertz Deep Sleep/Dreamless sleep
- Theta- 3-7.5 Hertz Drowsy/Daydreaming/Meditating/Spiritual Awareness/ESP
- Alpha- 7.5-13 Hertz Relaxed/Non-arousal/Meditation/Hypnosis
- Beta- 13-30 Hertz Awareness/Conscious thinking/Active conversation
As you can see the resonance of the Earth (7.83 Hertz) falls into the range that our brains are at in the Alpha state. Studies have shown that the Schumann Resonance does in fact have an effect on our systems, and that our brains can be triggered to the Alpha state in which people become relaxed, yet not aroused. When two vibrating systems resonate with each other, the result is a rise in amplitude. With us, our brain waves combine with the Earth resonance causing a rise in the amplitude of the waves. In turn this may lead to an increased awareness in our spiritual energy. I believe the Schumann Resonance and our ability to pick up on other people’s vibrational energy is what allows us to feel serenity when we experience the wonder of nature.
I live in a metropolitan area and if you’re like me you have probably noticed that a lot of people you see every day seem to be stressed and preoccupied with their lives. Because of their stress and worry I feel that a lot of people in cities tend to have denser vibrational energies meaning they are less susceptible to spiritual awareness. I also think there is a lot of negative energy in the cities, this is why I always seem to feel better when I get away from people and the city and head up to the mountains. Now I don’t want to offend anyone when I make these generalizations, it’s just my humble opinion. A more technical explanation as to why we feel better when we are out in nature is that in the cities electromagnetic interference may interfere with our bodies ability to tune into the Schumann Resonance. If you think about it, any electrical device emits electromagnetic energy, and how many electronic devices are there in cities? There are also cell towers, microwave towers, and many other transmitting devices that play a role in the interference.
In the song “Rocky Mountain High” one of the lyrics goes
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand
The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake
I think what John Denver was referring to were those moods we all tend to experience when we are taking in the allure of mother nature. I’m not sure if Mr. Denver ever realized there was a deeper meaning and explanation behind his feeling for the Rocky Mountains. For me, I now understand the reasons for my desire to make my permanent abode in the mountains. The peace my spirit receives when I am able get up to the mountains is nothing short of astonishing. My advice to you if you ever feel the need to decompress and are looking for a way to enlighten your spirit, no matter where you are, go find some solitude in nature and get that “Rocky Mountain High.”
Here is a video from youtube that uses Isochronic Tones pulsing at 7.83 Hertz.
If you are unable to make time or are unable to get out of town for a nature stroll you can always use brainwave entertainment to get your brains into that Alpha state. There are several videos on youtube that feature the Schumann Resonance through either isochronic tones or binaural beats. The Unexplainable Store has several choices if you want to purchase full length recordings.
