A variety of things are known to affect the human body, mind, and spirit, including weather, temperature extremes, planetary activity, moon phases, altitudes, exposure to sunlight, and in particular, solar or geomagnetic storms.
Just like all living organisms, the human physiology and psyche is constantly working hard to regulate and balance itself to align with its surrounding environment. Whenever anything out of the norm occurs, all living creatures are thrown out of sync and have to recalibrate their systems to regain “normality.” We see this when we observe how living things have moved through the stages of evolution.
Right now, people may notice that their energy—and that of others around them—feels extra intense, like everyone is extra irritable, anxious, impatient, fatigued, nervous, spacey, or stressed. This may be due to the fact we are currently in the midst of powerful solar storms.

Solar storms temporarily disturb the earth’s magnetosphere as solar winds and flares interact with Earth’s electromagnetic fields. Humans are also affected by this because we each have a personal electromagnetic field that surrounds us—an aura. Therefore, in the same way electromagnetic energy affects our planet, it may also play havoc with our own energy fields.
Although we are somewhat protected by Earth’s magnetic field, the intense, highly charged energy is still believed to have a major affect on everything that exists on Earth. Solar storms can greatly impact anything from emotions to electrical devices.
Solar storms are known to desynchronise our circadian rhythm, which is the internal biological clock that controls our sleep and wake times. Affected by this electromagnetic activity, our pineal glands produce an increase in melatonin—thus disturbing our sleep and throwing our intuition and inherent orientation out of sync. We suffer from disrupted sleep patterns, exhaustion, and vivid dreams. We may also have enhanced intuition and psychic awareness.
Solar storms are also believed to directly impact our nervous system, causing us to feel extra edgy, cautious, and feisty, and as though we are running on adrenaline in “fight or flight” mode.
Human beings have mostly been conditioned to believe that if we cannot see or touch something, it must not exist—when, in actuality, we are capable of seeing, sensing, hearing, and smelling so much more than we give ourselves credit for. We also need to take into account the things that do exist but are outside of our sensing range. However, if we are ultra sensitive to energy, we may be more affected by this energy (and absorb more of it) than those who aren’t.
The effects of geomagnetic storms are often highly underestimated
When they occur, we can find ourselves spun out or agitated without having any clue as to why. We may also notice that our senses are on high alert, and that everything feels and sounds louder, brighter, stronger, and more vivid than before.
Currently, there is a large, 200,000 km-wide canyon-shaped coronal hole that has opened up in the sun’s atmosphere, dividing almost the entire Earth-facing hemisphere of the sun. From this hole, a stream of high-speed solar winds (hot plasma) flows at a speed faster than 600 km/s toward Earth, and this highly charged wind will be buffeting the earth’s magnetic field over the next few days. This magnetic field is called the magnetosphere, and it is like a giant magnetic protective bubble that surrounds Earth.
These storms are known to have a huge impact on radio communications, navigation/GPS systems, technology, and living organisms. Solar energy has been shown to change blood flow, boost adrenalin, and affect blood pressure. It also affects our sleep patterns, as mentioned previously.
Research has found that geomagnetic storms can also have a huge effect on our emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical health. Peaks in increased anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, fatigue, and nervousness have been found to coincide with solar activity.
Geomagnetic storms can feel volatile, and during this period, our minds and bodies can feel like they have temporarily “shut down.” However, when we have slowed down, we are in a far better position to receive energetic downloads and DNA activations that help our vibration shift to a higher dimension. This is similar to the “ascension flu” that occurs when someone is going through an intense awakening period and their body is transcending from a physical one to a “light body.”
We are beings of light, made entirely up of energy. We only feel physical as we have been taught to believe that our world and universe is made up of physical entities, when it actually consists of highly vibrating energy. Everything that exists in the universe is made of energy that constantly vibrates, and moves in cycles, and the collective consciousness is one of the most impressive cycles to observe.
Human thoughts, emotions, feelings, beliefs, values, and overall ideology are currently shifting at an incredibly fast speed. The intense energy surrounding Earth, mostly due to solar activity, is generating a shift toward a mass-awakening, whereby as a collective, we are becoming more consciously alert and aware of ourselves and others, as well as the positive and negative effects we have on the outer world.
Major solar flares from the sun send off massive amounts of plasma and crystalline frequencies that reach our planet. This intense energy they carry is believed to reach our electromagnetic field and activate and shift our conscious awareness, and is powerful enough to lift us up to higher frequencies or dimensions.
An insight into the dimensions:
3rd Dimension: In this dimension, the ego is in control. We exist in a material world, view things from a physical state, and see people as separate from others rather than unified. We suffer from feelings of lack. Social status, money, and career are valued higher than compassion and kindness. We rely only on the five senses. We have no desire for introspection, and we perceive and judge everything as “good or bad.” We’re fearful of losing money, possessions, and control. We don’t feel “good enough.” Everything is perceived as a coincidence rather than alignment or synchronicity. We desire to always be “right.” We feel like we need someone else to make us happy or feel fulfilled.
4th Dimension: This is known as the astral plane, and a gateway to the 5th dimension. We can step back to the 3rd dimension relatively easily. We can discover new friendships on the same frequency and find our “soul tribes.” We are aware that thoughts can shift vibrations and reality. Compassion, acceptance, unity, and unconditional love are valued, and a healthy diet and lifestyle become highly important. We seek soul purpose and passion, and we often feel alone. We have a heightened awareness of unrest on earth, and a desire to pursue our soul mission or calling. We are aware that there is more to the world than meets the eye. We use our intuition and trust it, and we open our third eye chakra, therefore “knowing things” without being able to explain how. We can tell when someone is lying, and experience regular deja vu and synchronicity. Time no longer feels linear, and astral travel is possible.
5th Dimension: In this dimension, it is difficult to re-enter the 3rd dimension. We have a heightened intuition. We feel no limits, no fear, and no judgment of “good or bad.” We have an absolute understanding of yin and yang. There is no competition, and no feelings of lack. We live in a unity consciousness, and accept and love family as they are. Everything is effortless and flowing. We find abundance. We cannot be manipulated, and can instantly love unconditionally. We no longer take anything personally.
When we become more consciously aware of ourselves and the world we live in, we experience something known as “ascension.” This is when a personal awakening results in a shift from the 3rd dimension to the 4th, 5th, or higher.
Many who already vibrate in the 4th dimension have been struggling with “one foot in a fairytale and the other in the abyss,” to quote Paulo Coelho.
They have witnessed a vision of heaven on Earth—if we can all live and work peacefully and respectfully together—but these highly vibrating beings do not have the resources or manpower to manifest this vision on their own. They are tormented, stuck between turning away from the turbulence, and focusing on maintaining their own inner peace, or reaching out in whatever way they can to help and support those who feel lost or are vulnerable.
Looking at the world we live in, it is clear that there is pain, agony, trauma, and destruction on almost every corner. But, what we often fail to see is there is also an immense amount of love, caring, and compassion too.
We are all beginning understand how closely connected we all are, and that our world is not as fragmented as we might have thought.
When we go through dark days on Earth, we grow together and band together as one in grief. When we go through light days, we vibrate higher and collectively move toward a higher frequency. The empathy and compassion we share for our brothers and sisters is the unconditional love that is required to raise the collective frequency and pull Earth’s energy up into the 4th dimension.
The divine light that radiates toward us during and after solar flare activity is thought to allow us to move quickly toward ascension. If our vibration is lifting, and we are heading away from the 3rd dimension and beginning to feel the higher frequency of the 4th or 5th dimension, we may experience the following:
>> Pressure headaches and general aches and pains, mainly in the stomach (solar plexus) area
>> Feeling out of sorts or unbalanced
>> Flushes, dizziness, nausea
>> Ear ringing, difficulty focusing, confusion, and having afoggy mind
>> Forgetfulness, temporarily misplacing items
>> Extreme fatigue, exhaustion, lack of energy, disturbed sleep patterns (waking up between 2 and 4 a.m.)
>> Seemingly out the blue bouts of anxiety, stress, irritability, frustration, sadness, nervousness, worry, fear, grief, and overwhelm
>> Emotional, tearful, highly sensitive
>> Heightened awareness, enhanced intuition, having insights that seem to appear out of nowhere
>> Aversion or sensitivities to particular foods and drinks
>> Difficulty tracking time (time either feels too slow or at great speed)
>> Noticing synchronicities, i.e. certain number patterns reappearing
>> Premonitions, intense dreams, or nightmares
>> Skin feeling irritable and/or itchy
>> Struggles with communication, arguments, disagreements
>> Electronic devices malfunctioning.
Geomagnetic storms are intense transformational periods that can bring mind-opening awakenings and reconnect us to internal and external universal knowledge and wisdom. To ensure we resonate with this higher energy so that our vibration is raised, we can combat the affects of solar activity by resting and taking time from our busy schedules to do the following:
>> Drink plenty of filtered water (not tap water)
>> Take saltwater baths
>> Meditate and remain aware of reoccurring thoughts and feelings
>> Avoid caffeine and alcohol
>> Spend time in nature
>> Consume high vibrational foods such as fruit and vegetables
>> Remind yourself that everything in the universe is made up of energy and that conscious thought and intention can instantly alter how we think and feel
>> Breathe deeply, forgive, release, and surrender, and practice kindness, compassion, acceptance, and empathy
>> When possible, temporarily disconnect from technology and anything or anyone where the energy is toxic and draining
Whichever way we look at it, whether we believe in prophecies, phenomena, and planetary and star alignment, or whether we just sense something undefinable could be happening due to the mega storms, fires, droughts, earthquakes, volcanoes, and solar flares, I think many of us would agree that it feels like we are currently going through something world-altering and momentous.
There is great change. There is an end coming. It is the end of an old order that taught of separation, and made many believe that money, materialism, and superficial entities were highly valuable. The new ways teach of unconditional love, of universal acceptance, of higher energies that do not see division, and source energy that embraces and encompasses all.
There will always be negative energies, or dark forces, on Earth. The entire universe consists of a mix of negative and positive energy. To vibrate higher and shift toward a higher dimension, we have to learn to yin and yang, and find balance and harmony, so that we find ways of co-existing as one, despite perceived differences. Ultimately, when we balance and heal our inner selves, the external world also benefits and transforms.
As the saying goes, “We are all in this together.”
We all share this earthly home, and we can all play a tremendous part in shifting our own vibration, as well as the Earth’s vibration, so that we are pulled upward to a higher frequency. This is done simply by practicing compassion, acceptance, unconditional love, and oneness, so that we generate and maintain bliss internally and externally.
Solar wind streams cause auroras or northern lights to occur, so there is a high possibility they will be witnessed around the Arctic Circle over the next few days. At this time of the year, even the gentlest gust of solar wind can spark a magnificent aurora show. Auroras or northern Lights will be clearly visible occur when particles cast out from the solar storm reach our planet’s magnetic field and then slam into atmospheric gases, triggering what is known as Aurora Borealis. They can usually be seen an hour before sunrise, or approximately an hour or two after sunset.
