Brain Waves Study Shows Humans Can Sense Earth’s Magnetic Field

In a CalTech study, scientists determined that human brains do in fact have a sixth sense many have long suspected; magneto-reception. Much like the various animals that use the planet’s magnetism for navigation, the study showed that humans are subconsciously affected by Earth’s ever-shifting magnetic field.

By placing participants inside of an electromagnetic-shielding Faraday Cage wrapped with powerful square “Merritt coils,” researchers were able to recreate a magnetic field on par with the planet’s, which they were able to manipulate. They then measured subjects’ brainwaves using EEG caps while moving the magnetic field clockwise, counterclockwise or not at all.

Unsurprisingly, when measuring the subject’s alpha brain waves, scientists noticed a response tied to the various shifts in their Earthlike magnetic field. The only anomaly they detected was that these alpha waves were unresponsive to a rotating magnetic field that pointed toward the ceiling.

Though not entirely sure why this might be the case, scientists said it may be due to the brain not responding to confusing magnetic stimuli. All subjects involved came from the planet’s northern hemisphere and responded only to fields pointing the same way the planet’s magnetic field points in that half of the world. They said they would need to conduct tests with people from the southern hemisphere to confirm this theory.

Researchers involved also say they believe this ability is a defunct, leftover trait from our past; a “lost, ancestral magneto-sensory system.”

But others have long suspected that humans are far more sensitive to shifts in the Earth’s magnetic field than we’re even aware of. This is largely due to the fact that it’s been well-documented that human brains, like other animals, contain large amounts of magnetite – a magnetic mineral believed to act as a receptor to the Earth’s magnetic field.

Scientific studies on magnetite and their reaction to extremely low frequency (ELF) waves have shown that certain frequencies can impact mood and cause physical ailments such as depression, anxiety, nausea, and headaches. But magnetic fields at slightly higher frequencies can have the complete opposite effect, resulting in anxiety relief and stress reduction.

When it comes to large scale effects of the Earth’s magnetic field on the population at large, similar types of consistent behavior correlated with magnetic fluctuations have been observed. During geomagnetic storms and periods of drastic magnetic change, such disparate actions as increased suicide, fluctuations in the stock market, and upswings in birth rates have been recorded.

And now, some studies are starting to observe even more bizarre behavior related to our newly discovered magneto-reception: telepathy.

Akashic Records 101: Can We Access Our Akashic Records?

Are the Akashic Records some cosmic repository of endless file cabinets in infinite hallways and stacks? Where did this concept come from? Do these records exist in time and space like a galactic internet? How do we access the Akashic Records?

In this article, we’ll go over:

What Are The Akashic Records?

While many describe or explain the concept in different ways, in essence, the Akashic Records are believed to be the repository of every thought, word, and deed of every living being, good, bad, and awful, in all times; past, present, future. But those familiar with the records report that there is no judgment or implied penalty in the records — they are said to simply be a record of each soul’s journey through the infinite.

History of the Akashic Records

One of the earliest references to the Akashic Records in modern times was made by Helena Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical movement in the late 19th century. Theosophy is an esoteric belief system that incorporates philosophical tenets from eastern religions while maintaining that “there is no religion higher than Truth.”    

Blavatsky claimed she learned of the records from Tibetan monks, or “mahatmas” who said the records could be found in the “akasha,” or “akasa,” the Sanskrit word for astral light, or the ether element in eastern belief systems. This fifth element of space is considered the fundamental fabric of reality from which all other elements emerge — the source of material reality. The eastern idea of karma is a major facet of the akashic records.

These “Masters of the Ancient Wisdom,” as Blavatsky referred to them as, taught her clairvoyance, psychic abilities, and astral projection. She used these tools to channel information from the akashic records and built a large following of Theosophists, including some famous ones.

Metaphysician Rudolf Steiner also referenced the Akashic Records, asserting that every action, word, and thought leaves a trace in etheric realms. Contemporary physicist Ervin Laszlo explores concepts of Akasha from the perspective of science, concluding that the Akasha contains templates for human ideals such as harmony and equanimity. This is reflected in his “Akasha Paradigm” which he relates to human evolutionary processes.

Those who subscribe to Akashic record models often reference the Book of Life first mentioned in the old testament (Exodus). Biblical scripture asserts that a record of every life is kept in heaven, and it is from these records that souls are judged.

Explorations of the akashic field were also a major focus of the writings and work of Edgar Cayce. Cayce’s Akashic studies posited that there is a storehouse of information in a non-physical plane of existence, which maintains a record of every soul’s past, present, and future. Cayce’s readings are some of the best known.
