It has occurred to me how much the Sun affects Earth and humans. I never knew or understood what a solar flare was and thought my boyfriend was being strange when he talked about them. I looked it up and understood another level about how we are all interconnected with the sun magnetic field. What is a Solar Flare?
A flare is defined as a sudden, rapid and intense variation in brightness. A solar flare occurs when magnetic energy that has built up in the solar atmosphere is suddenly released. The frequency of flares coincides with the Sun's eleven year cycle. When the solar cycle is at a minimum, active regions are small and rare and few solar flares are detected. These increase in number as the Sun approaches the maximum part of its cycle.
How does this affect humans?
This magnetic field affects the pineal gland. In some, the pineal glad is larger and more sensitive because of ones's diet and natural habits. I'll explain how here.
The Sun goes through its 11-year cycle, wherein the sun’s magnetic energy increases, causing a solar flare. Holman adds that “the energy released during a flare is ten million times greater than energy released from a volcanic explosion. On the other hand, a solar flare is less than one-tenth of the total energy emitted by the Sun every second.” We are coming into “cycle 24″ which was predicted “live” on ECM Radio Hour by NASA. NASA states “cycle 24 will be up to 50 percent stronger than “Cycle 23,” in which we witnessed the largest solar flare ever recorded. This means larger Earth changing events in the way of earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, and various storms. But it also means we (humans) will be bombarded with charged particles via severe geomagnetic storms from the Sun.”
The disturbance of the Sun (by solar flares) on the geomagnetic field on Earth would in a similar manner have an effect on the geomagnetic field surrounding humans or animals.
There is a growing body of evidence that changes in the geogeomagnetic field do affect biological systems. Studies indicate that fluctuation in the geogeomagnetic field cause a negative response on physically stressed human biological systems.
Dr. Lim, TAO Grand Master of the Qi-Mag Institute, said “Solar flares through their extreme magnetic effects affect the central nervous system, brain activity and equilibrium (balance), our thought patterns, human behaviours, mental-emotional-physical response. Therefore solar flares can cause humans and all living beings to be nervous, anxious, worrisome, jittery, dizzy, shaky for those who are super sensitive, irritable, lethargic, exhausted, short memory lost, heart palpitation for those with weak heart, regular pressure on the head and headaches.”
The Institute of North Industrial Ecology Problems in Russia found that where there were geomagnetic peaks, there were increased incidences of anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and suicide in the city of Kirovsk.
The most plausible explanation to this is the correlation of solar storms and the desynchronization of our circadian rhythm (biological clock). The pineal gland in our brain is affected by the electromagnetic activity, which in effect produces an excess of melatonin, which in turn causes the gland to produce excess melatonin.
There are even studies indicating evidence of increasing cases of illnesses like cancer and major mental illness caused by severe solar flares (in the region between the equator and the poles).
It is difficult to say that these studies provide direct evidence of the effects of solar flares/storms on illnesses and the biological system. There is, however, an increase in the interest on this subject and research studies. What is very true is the prophesies/predictions of the Maya – that we are in an era of a changing paradigm. They predicted that we are in a time of “change and conflict” and that this change is coming from the both the “outside” and “inside.” Whether this “outside” influence is in the form of weather, natural phenomena or celestial disturbance (solar flares), it does not matter. In the end, it is all interrelated.
