Slow Down, You Move Too Fast

“Slow down, you movin’ too fast; You gotta make the moment last” – Fifty Ninth Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy) – Paul Simon

Sometimes, you just don’t have a coherent thought to share. I have a number of blog posts started this week, but none of them are screaming to be fine-tuned and exposed to the world. So, I sat; trying to figure out what the hell I’m going to write about this week. In my efforts to find something interesting to write, I decided to look inside and try to figure out why I have been so un-motivated lately. For the last few months I have felt agitated, fearful, and ungrounded.

There have been a number of events that seem to be intended to maintain these feelings of agitation. A few of them have been personal, more of them have been societal. All of these factors add up to my difficulty focusing on anything glib or light right now. At the same time, I think we’ve all had more than enough depressing news dumped on us; I certainly don’t need to re-hash any of the issues that have been filling our news outlets and our social media.

So, I wondered, why do I feel agitated? Why does the world feel like it’s speeding up? Why does it feel like we’re losing control? In my reading in the last couple of weeks, I came across an article about the Schumann Resonances.

According to Wikipedia, the Schumann Resonances “are a set of spectrum peaks in the extremely low frequency (ELF) portion of the Earth’s electromagnetic field spectrum. Schumann resonances are global electromagnetic resonances, generated and excited by lightning discharges in the cavity formed by the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere.”

According to the article on Prepare For Change, the previous normal rate of this resonance stayed right around 7.83 Hz with only slight variations. In 2014, there was a lot of discussion generated when there were days where the recorded Schumann rate accelerated as fast as 16.5 Hz. In the last week, the Schumann has accelerated as fast as 36 Hz. A little, quick, mental math informs me that is approximately 5 times the normal rate.

The article discusses how human energy has the potential to impact the Schumann Resonances. As I interpreted the article, and through previous research, the earth is energy and humans are energy. It makes perfect sense to me that  these two energy sources are very likely interdependent on each other.

Looking deeper into the subject, I found an article on,  which said: “Since the Schumann frequency is said to be ‘in tune’ with the human brain’s alpha and theta states, this acceleration may be why it often feels like time has sped up and events and changes in our life are happening more rapidly.” In the last paragraph of this same article they stated:

“Whatever is happening, it’s clear that this acceleration may make you feel more tired, exhausted, dizzy, depressed, and even strange as you raise your own frequencies to be more ‘in tune’ with the New Earth.”

I don’t know about anyone else, but this explained perfectly how I’ve been feeling for the last few months. I feel a little relieved that there may be a reason why I’ve struggled to find peace or joy. The question I cannot answer is: which came first? Did the upheaval in the world’s societies cause the increased Schumann frequencies? Or did the increased frequencies cause the unsettled state of the world today?

I also have no idea what I, or anyone else can do about this phenomena, but it makes sense to my heart and my brain that this is somehow connected to the chaos that I have heard too many people say they are feeling. I think, that almost without exception, everyone would like to live in a quiet, calm, world where we can all co-exist peacefully. Unfortunately, we appear to have, at least temporarily, lost our ability to compromise and work through problems together.

I just want the world to literally slow down and for us all to return to a world that allows us to achieve some level of peace of mind.
