A Geomagnetic storm, according to noaa.gov a significant disturbance of the Earth’s magnetosphere that occurs when there is a very efficient exchange of energy from the solar wind into the space environment surrounding Earth. The largest storms that result from these conditions are associated with solar coronal mass ejections.  After feeling achy and tired yesterday and noticing how my achy and tired pattern coincides with these Geomagnetic storms, I got to researching the topic.  

Over the last few months, I have been watching and noticing the pattern in how my body feels and what is happening with the solar activity; it wasn’t even really a conscious thing, just something I was observing. 

More recently, I observed that on 2/18/2021, I began to feel weak, exhausted and my hands and feet were feeling oddly sore; I also had a headache, and again, the same on 2/19/2021. So, I checked out the space weather, as I have been, and noticed there is currently a geomagnetic storm warning as there were the last few times I observed the same thing. 

We know the new moon and full moon affect one’s mental health and physical wellbeing, and both are associated with an increase in negative energy. But how about geomagnetic storms? Does this space phenomenon cause health, mental health issues, and physical health issues to exacerbate? Indeed it does! There have been various studies done on the topic and its association with psychological and physical health problems.  

It has been known for ages that magnetic storms affect equipment performance, interfere with radio and satellite communications, and cause interference with radars; these space storms are also connected to large earthquakes.  

Over the last several years, there has been an increase in solar flares and geomagnetic storms. This release of high-energy magnetic varies according to the 11-year solar cycles and is more intense during solar maxima periods. These periods are characterized by a high number of geomagnetic storms (GMD) are connected to numerous health outcomes. I can recall in 2011, 2012 I felt the same kind of tired, achy feelings. It was around that time; I believe there was an increase in solar activity as well.  

Research studies in multiple medical journals report the effects of solar flares, and geomagnetic storms might cause the following problems:

– Change the blood flow, especially in capillaries, affect blood pressure, and boost adrenalin.

-High values of geomagnetic activity have a negative effect on the human cardiovascular health of incidents of alterations in blood flow is increased (increased systolic and diastolic blood pressure and epileptic seizures) during the solar activity periods

-Incidents of coronary disease and myocardial infarction increase during spans of high solar activity, as compared to years with low solar activity 

-Solar flares affect the Central Nervous System (stomach lining), all brain activity (including balance), human behavior, and all psycho-physiological (mental-emotional-physical) response.

 -Solar flares can cause nervousness, anxiousness, worrisome, jittery, dizzy, shaky, irritable, lethargic, exhausted, have short-term memory problems and heart palpitations, feel nauseous, queasy, and to have prolonged head pressure and headaches.

-During periods of intense geomagnetic disturbances, indisposition, weakness, and presence of indistinct localized headaches were recorded for the majority of patients in research studies(Babayev,2005)

-The effect of geomagnetic storms on suicide The results of this study support the hypothesis that geomagnetic storm activity is associated with suicide rates (Gordon,2003)

-Solar activity is associated with oscillations in concentrations of vitamin D

-According to study results published in the journal Stroke, strokes were 19 percent more likely to occur on geomagnetic storm days than on other days. Geomagnetic storms are associated with an increased risk of stroke and should be considered along with other established risk factors(2014).

-Solar activity may contribute to the development of and be a trigger of the exacerbation of nervous and mental disorders, such as schizophrenia 

-Solar disturbances are associated with significant increases in hospital admissions for suicide attempts, homicides, and traffic accidents (Kancírová M, Kudela K 2014)

Interestingly, it is shocking that this is not more widely researched, and more education on the topic is not given to the public. I did not find ANY research that suggested any spiritual studies were done, but that is not surprising. Based on the indications in the information I have read, I believe there is also an increase in negative energy during these solar events. What does that mean? I am not sure yet.  

One journal study I read suggested that medical personnel consider solar activity effects on strokes and mental health occurrences to treat patients more effectively. I would say that would make a considerable difference in long-term outcomes.  

I want to research the topic more thoroughly and observe how individuals react emotionally and mentally during these geomagnetic storms. There is a variety of scenarios that, for me, anyway go into deciding if something is spiritually pure or impure and can be combated through spiritual interventions. Therefore, I cannot comment on that yet. 

More to come!
