How to adapt to the Earth's quickening pace.

The "heartbeat" of the Earth is known as the Schumann resonance, named after physicist Winfried Otto Schumann, who documented it mathematically in 1952. The concept of a consistent planetary heartbeat is also very ancient. For thousands of years 8hz has been the fundamental "beat" of the planet. Not surprisingly, it turns out that our physiology, states of consciousness, and well-being are designed to be in tune with the heartbeat of the Earth.

Interesting evidence

  • The ancient OM chant is also at the 8 Hz frequency.
  • Alpha brain waves operate within the 8Hz frequency, and bring a relaxed state of being with greater mental clarity and increased creativity. An alpha state also reduces anxiety.
  • Theta brainwaves also operate within the 8 Hz frequency and take us to the threshold of the subconscious, where we can access other dimensions of reality, paranormal abilities, inspiration, the ability for quantum learning and reprogramming/restructuring the brain.
  • The combination of alpha and theta waves occurs in deep meditation, where our consciousness can connect directly with pure awareness and the greater cosmos.
  • When the two hemispheres of our brain are synchronized with each other at 8Hz, they work more harmoniously and with a maximum flow of information.

Quick experiences

Have you noticed that time seems sped up regardless of how old you are, and that things are changing at an accelerated pace? Well, until 2014, the heartbeat of our planet was consistently in the 7.3-8 Hz range. In June 2014, scientists observed a sudden spike in activity to around 8.5 Hz. Since then, they have recorded days where the Schumann accelerated as fast as 16.5 Hz-double the old rate. The quickened heartbeat of the planet is a contributing factor to our experience of things speeding up.

The Earth's frequency is accelerating and since the Schumann frequency is resonant with the human brain wave alpha and theta states, it means our brain waves and states of being are also expanding. This upgrade is facilitating an awakening to a higher state of consciousness. Twelve to 15 Hz is considered an ideal state of "awakened calm." Our thought processes will then be clearer and more focused. We are more attuned to the greater cosmos, to higher states of consciousness and to the interconnectedness of all life.

Symptoms of adapting to the acceleration

Rapid change is challenging us on all levels. Some of the physical symptoms related to this acceleration may include feeling more tired, exhausted, dizzy, depressed, and even strange as you raise your own frequencies to be more "in tune" with the New Earth. Remember to use good judgment and consult your choice of health care professionals if you need help. Keep in mind we are all being exposed to the new earth frequencies; it's very unsettling and it is part of our collective evolution.

Seven ways to gracefully adapt

Consistently practice whatever form of meditation works for you. Not everyone is wired to sit in meditation, and it is important to know that there are also active forms of meditation like yoga and martial arts. Most meditations are practiced silently; others include chanting out loud. Again, discover what works for you.

  1. Spend time outdoors being mindful of the soothing scents, sounds, colors and textures in nature, all of which are upgrading to the new frequencies.
  2. Whenever possible walk barefoot on the earth to take in the new energies.
  3. Eat organic, non-GMO foods, which have healthfully absorbed the new frequencies of the Earth.
  4. Get plenty of sleep.
  5. Practice mindfulness, random acts of kindness and compassion every day.
  6. Live life through the lens of your open human heart.

In memoriam and a higher calling

Adapting to big changes and making way for the new is not easy. The world is in a healing crisis. It requires courage to clear out long-held personal, cultural, national beliefs, hurts, ideas, feelings, prejudices, and behaviors that do not match the higher frequencies.

Please keep all those who have recently perished in your hearts; the higher service of their souls is to bring us-all of humanity-together with acceptance and love. This is what the new earth is about. Our planet is evolving by shifting her vibrational frequency and giving us the chance to step into our greater potential. PJH
