I don’t think I’m alone in saying that it’s been a bit of a rough year.
In an attempt to remedy this — to fix the world and “heal” humanity — on April 4, 2020 a number of groups around the world took part in a mass meditation event.
According to the event’s listing on Eventbrite, the 20-minute-long mass meditation occurred at 7:45 p.m. PDT (10:45 p.m. EDT), to coincide with “the massive astrological configuration of [the] Jupiter/Pluto conjunction.”
“State your intent to use this meditation as a tool to shift the planet into the most optimal timeline…”
Did it succeed? That I cannot say, but many believe something extraordinary did indeed happen — a strong peak in the Schumann resonance which they claim correlates to the time of the mass meditation.
(Times on the graph are set to the local time in Tomsk, Russia (UTC+7), where the measurements were observed. You can view graphs of the Schumann resonance and other data here.)
What exactly is Schumann resonance? As NASA explains:
“At any given moment about 2,000 thunderstorms roll over Earth, producing some 50 flashes of lightning every second. Each lightning burst creates electromagnetic waves that begin to circle around Earth captured between Earth’s surface and a boundary about 60 miles up [the lower ionosphere].
Some of the waves – if they have just the right wavelength – combine, increasing in strength, to create a repeating atmospheric heartbeat known as Schumann resonance.”
The fundamental electromagnetic resonant frequency of this “heartbeat” is 7.83 Hertz. This number fluctuates, typically due to solar radiation and the amount of lightning at any given time. However, some believe certain large fluctuations — namely, a jump to over 36 Hz in January 2017, and of course this month’s leap beyond that — may be the result of interactions with human consciousness.
Is it possible?
The idea of mass meditation having a tangible effect on world events is certainly an interesting one, and there are even ideas about the Schumann resonance and how it might in turn affect humans (one study looked at a possible link between Schumann resonance and blood pressure).
However, the real reason I’m sharing this is because it reminds me of one of my most memorable experiences listening to Coast to Coast AM.
Now, I don’t remember the exact episode (I’ll have to look that up), but in August 2004, during a long drive to Orlando, Florida in the middle of the night, I decided to tune into Coast to hear what they were talking about.
It was sometime during the beginning of the show, and George Noory, or perhaps it was his guest, asked the entire audience to focus their thoughts on pushing the incoming Hurricane Charley away from Florida (or perhaps it was to dissipate it).
That didn’t quite work. Charley turned and went straight on through, and now I can say I’ve seen the inside of a particularly powerful hurricane.
Still, I’m not one to disregard the potential for high strangeness, especially not in matters of the mind.
Do you believe mass meditation can have an impact on reality?
