Global electromagnetic resonance phenomenon was first discovered and by Nicola Tesla, who made his first documented observations of global electromagnetic resonance at his Colorado Springs laboratory in 1899. This led to certain thought conclusions about the electrical properties of Earth, making the basis for his idea for wireless energy transmission. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikola_Tesla Theoretically, it is the natural frequency or rather, Heart Beat of Mother Earth and when we are mostly healthy, our human bodies vibrate to this same frequency. The lowest “mode” of the Schumann frequency occurs at a frequency of approximately 7.86 Hertz. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schumann_resonance
The following is a very cool animation video clip demonstrating the geometrics of the Schumann Resonance of Mother Earth: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/67/Schumann_resonance_animation.ogv. By way of transverse and longitudinal waves, Tesla researched ways to transmit wireless power and energy over long distances. He transmitted extremely low frequencies through the ground, and between the Earth’s surface and the Kennelly-Heaviside layer. By this path, he received patents on wireless transmitters that developed standing waves. Through his math experiments, he discovered that the resonant frequency of the Earth was approximately 8 Hertz.
In 1952–1954 Schumann and scientist H. L. König, attempted to measure the resonant frequencies. These researchers confirmed in mid-century, that the resonant frequency of the Earth’s cavity was indeed in this range and later named the Schumann resonance. Since then, there has been an increasing interest in SRF in many fields of study.
For tracking weather patterns across the globe, observations of Schumann resonances document record keeping of lightning activity. The Earth’s climate and Her connection with lightning activity also show global temperature and water vapor in the upper troposphere. Scientists speculate that extraterrestrial lightning (i.e. lightning on other planets) is also observed by the Schumann resonance signatures. The Schumann resonance is also used in study of the lower ionosphere for exploration on celestial stars. Within our Solar System, there are five candidates for Schumann resonance detection besides the Earth: Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and its moon Titan. The latest usage of observing Schumann patterns have been in predicting potential earthquakes.
According to metaphysician and scientist, Gregg Braden, the Schumann Resonance Frequency of Mother Earth has been steadily rising and will continue to until the end of 2012. www.2012.com.au/SchumannResonance.html.
The SRF’s occur at several frequencies between 6 and 50 cycles per second; specifically 7.8, 14, 20, 26, 33, 39 and 45 Hertz, with a daily variation of about +/- 0.5 Hertz. As long as the properties of Earth’s electromagnetic cavity remains relatively the same, these frequencies remain the same. Braden says that “time” appears to speed up as we approach what he calls Zero Point Phenomenon. For example, one 24 hour day seems not 24 hours, but rather about 16 hours or less.
Schumann Resonance is also known as The Heart Beat of Mother Earth. It has been 7.8 cycles for thousands of years, but has been rising since 1980. Presently it is about 12 / 13 cycles. It stops at 13 cycles and is speculated to come to a complete stop on December 21, 2012, the end of what is known also, of the Mayan Calendar, and the mark of the beginning of a new cycle of consciousness on Mother Earth.
