What is Schumann Resonance?

In 1899, a scientist and inventor named Nikola Tesla was performing energy experiments in Colorado Springs, USA, when he discovered that the Earth had a resonant frequency of approximately 8 Hz. Sadly, Tesla was ahead of his time. His discovery was documented, but it was not proven, and wouldn’t be for almost half a century.
Nearly 50 years later, in 1953, Professor W.O. Schumann of the University of Munich was teaching his students about the physics of electricity when they discovered that the Earth’s cavity produces very specific pulsations. They’d stumbled on the vibrational pulse of the planet Earth. In 1954, scientific tests confirmed that, indeed, the planet Earth resonates at 7.83 Hertz, which was dubbed “Schumann Resonances” in honor of the man who provided the proof.
When Schumann’s test results were published, a physician named Dr Ankermueller immediately made the connection between Schumann Resonance and the frequency of brain waves. He was so excited to find that the Earth had the same resonance as human brainwaves in the Theta state that he contacted Dr. Schumann immediately.
Schumann was intrigued and asked a doctorate candidate, Herbert König, to look into it. König started a series of studies to compare human EEG recordings with natural electromagnetic fields of our environment. When König confirmed the relationship between the Earth’s resonance and human brainwaves, the science community was buzzing.
One of the foremost researchers into an earth/mind connection was Dr Wolfgang Ludwig. Ludwig’s goal was to discover which frequencies exist in a healthy environment. When he started doing his own tests, the first thing Ludwig discovered was that the Earth’s vibration could be clearly measured in nature and on the ocean, but measuring Schumann waves was impossible in the city because man-made electromagnetic signals interfered with and blocked out the Earth’s frequency. And that’s when brainwave studies got just a little wild.
In 1963, Professor Rutger Wever, from the Max Planck Institute for Behavioral Physiology in Erling-Andechs, built an underground bunker that screened out the Earth’s resonance. Wever was doing experiments with light and frequency and studying the affect on circadian rhythms. In each experiment, student volunteers agreed to live in the bunker for up to four weeks.
Wever’s bunkers were dismantled in the 80s, but in study results, Wever noted that when Schumann Resonances were filtered out of the bunker, the students’ physical and mental health suffered. They experienced stress, emotional distress and migraine headaches. After brief exposure to the 7.83 Hz frequency that had been screened out, their health stabilized quickly.
Simply put, human beings were not meant to live surrounded by power lines, satellite receivers and cell phone towers. We were meant to live surrounded by the natural resonance that helps us achieve our optimum brainwave state, but instead, we’ve created our own bunkers, cut off from the Earth’s frequency by our own inventions and conveniences. Is it any wonder that stress, depression and anxiety disorders are more abundant today than ever before in history?
