Geomagnetic Storm (aka Solar Flare) Warning

This Solar Flare warning just in from SpaceWeather:

GEOMAGNETIC STORM WARNING: NOAA forecasters say that G2-class geomagnetic storms are possible on April 25th when a coronal mass ejection (CME) is expected to hit Earth’s magnetic field. The CME was hurled in our direction earlier today by a C3.8-class flare from sunspot AR2816.

Earth-facing sunspot AR2816 exploded this morning, producing a C3.8-class solar flare. A pulse of X-rays and UV radiation ionized the top of Earth’s atmosphere, producing a shortwave radio blackout over southeast Asia. Of greater interest, however, is this shadowy wave rippling away from the blast site (see featured image).

This is a “solar tsunami.” It is a wave of hot plasma and magnetism, about 100,000 km tall, racing away from the blast site approximately 250 km/s. Such waves are usually associated with the launch of coronal mass ejections (CMEs)–and indeed, one has been observed.

Coronagraphs onboard the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) detected a CME billowing away from the sun in the hours after the flare.

The initial velocity of the CME was ~760 km/s. Based on its speed and other factors, NOAA forecasters believe that the CME will reach Earth on April 25th, potentially sparking G2-class geomagnetic storms.

If a solar flare has already created a shortwave radio blackout, you can be sure it’s going to affect you. People are likely to feel raw or emotional, off-balance (sometimes literally), and have a lot of stomach issues. Anger issues may be getting processed in the sinuses.

We all have an electromagnetic field. Heck, all matter is made up of energy, so to assume that we’re not affected by changes in the energy that bombards the earth is a bit myopic. The sun, aka Sol, sends us radiation all the time, which is our sunlight. The amount of harmful radiation is quite filtered by the time it reaches us, due to the atmosphere. It’s much stronger up in a plane than on the surface of the Earth, and even more so up at the International Space Station. When that energy changes, it does affect us. If the change is drastic or sudden enough, it does so far as to throw off our electronics and transmissions (satellites, tv, radio, internet, cell phones).

We are much more finely tuned than our inventions, although we spend a lot of time trying to ignore that fact. So, when Sol throws us a curve ball, it throws us off balance, so to speak. Depending on what the energy is, we get jangly or sad; either way, it’s hard to get through the day. People with electromagnetic dissonance already (heartbeat irregularity, seizure disorder, autoimmune issues) may also experience more than the usual health issues. Things that help are drinking more water, deep breathing and meditation, and working to align ourselves more firmly with the sun’s energy, so we’re in harmony with it, rather than at odds with it. Cutting ourselves and others some slack, doing our best to be in compassion rather than frustration and judgment, also helps quite a bit.

  • Make sure you’re drinking enough water and replenishing your electrolytes.
  • Eat lots of yellow fruits and veggies.
  • Ground ground ground ground ground.
  • Long, slow, deep breaths.
  • Working on your foundation, whether that’s meditation, a daily practice, journaling…
  • Find ways to align yourself with the solar energy so it affects you less – my modified sun salutations are good (see below), if you have other techniques, I would love to hear them.

    Modified Sun Salutations:

    To align more firmly with Sol’s energy, plant your feet firmly on the ground, and feel the connection. Reach up to the sky, as in the yoga pose Sun Salutation. Imagine yourself grabbing or connecting with the energy of Sol, and draw it down to you, through the top of your head, and down into your heart. Let it rest there for a moment, creating a harmony or alignment, and then send it down through your feet into the planet. Reach up again, this time imagining that you are grabbing the energy of the heart of the Milky Way, our galaxy. Draw that down, through your head, and into your heart, allowing it to rest there and shift your vibration, and then send it down through your feet and into the earth. Do this one more time, this time imaging that you are connecting with the heart or center of the Universe. Draw that down, through the top of your head, and into your heart, letting it rest there, connecting with you, shifting your energy, before sending it down through your feet and into the planet.

    I hope all this helps!

    If you want some help aligning your energies more strongly, feel free to set up an appointment. I will be seeing people who are at least two weeks past their second C19 vaccination in person, and I can also see clients on Zoom.
