Did you feel a drop in your energy on January 6th, starting around 19:30UTC (11:30am Pacific)? SpaceWeather says we may have passed through a fold in the heliospheric current sheet, a giant, wavy membrane of electrical current rippling through the solar system:
Yesterday, Jan. 6th, something unexpected happened in the soil of northern Norway. “Electrical currents started flowing,” reports Rob Stammes, who monitors ground currents at the Polarlightcenter geophysical observatory in Lofoten. This chart recording shows the sudden
“It seemed to be some kind of shockwave,” says Stammes. “My instruments detected a sudden, strong variation in both ground currents and our local magnetic field. It really was a surprise.”
NASA’s ACE spacecraft detected something as well. About 15 minutes before the disturbance in Norway, the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) near Earth abruptly swung around 180 degrees, and the solar wind density jumped more than 5-fold. Earth may have crossed through a fold in the heliospheric current sheet–a giant, wavy membrane of electrical current rippling through the solar system. Such crossings can cause these kind of effects.
While currents flowed through the ground, auroras filled the sky. What a surprise!” says Elzein. “The auroras were sudden and dynamic, with fast-moving green needles and several purple fringes!”
The auroras and ground currents were caused by the same thing: Rapidly changing magnetic fields. High above Earth’s surface, magnetic vibrations shook loose energetic particles, which rained down on the upper atmosphere, creating auroras where they struck. Just below Earth’s surface, magnetic vibrations caused currents to flow, triggering Rob Stammes’ ground sensors.
“We couldn’t see the auroras in northern Norway because of cloud cover,” says Stammes, a little ruefully. “We had to be satisfied with the electricity underfoot.”
As I have written about before, when Sol aims her energy at Terra/Earth, she can be seen as trying to jolt or shock us into a course correction.
On a purely physical level, when we are bombarded by solar activity like this, even by a minor storm, it affects the electromagnetic field of the planet, which, in turn affects our personal electromagnetic fields. When your electromagnetic field is hit like this, you might feel more easily overwhelmed; some people get amped up, others need more rest. If you, like me, have issues with electronics, those issues might be heightened.
Under these conditions, I generally recommend:
- Fruit is your friend. Lightly steamed veggies, too. Avoid things that are too acidic (or too alkali), difficult to digest, or that take a long time to digest.
You may also find the meditation I just recorded to be helpful for adjusting your energy.
I’ll be looking more into the heliospheric current sheet and will update this post if more information develops.
