You’ve heard about it, right? That the Schumann Resonance is increasing? If you haven’t, then try a quick Google search for “Schumann Resonance”. You’ll notice that the first page of your search will have at least one blog or website claiming that it’s increasing. But here’s a question for you: Is it true?
Before we go any further though…
What Is The Schumann Resonance?
For us to answer this, we need to know that there are many Schumann Resonances, not only one. The particular Schumann Resonance (SR) that is usually referred to, is the fundamental Schumann Resonance, which has an average frequency of about 7.83Hz. This fundamental Schumann Resonance is the resonance with the greatest intensity (strength).
Schumann Resonance Propagation
Schumann Resonances are standing waves, also known as radio waves. These are the same type of electromagnetic waves used to broadcast your favourite radio station. In the same way that the radio station must generate the waves to broadcast them, the Schumann Resonances also need to be created, or propagated. For any electromagnetic wave to be propagated, there are specific requirements, and to generate waves at specific frequencies, these requirements need to be fine tuned.
The Guitar String
To keep it easy, and steer clear of the maths and electronics, let’s use a guitar string as an example. A guitar string doesn’t produce an electromagnetic wave but, when plucked, the vibration created in the string is a standing wave. If you tighten the string, it produces a higher note or frequency. If you loosen the string, the note will be a lower frequency. For us to tune 2 strings to the same note (frequency), we need to replicate the same conditions, i.e. string length, width and tension. This shows us that, to produce a specific frequency, we need specific conditions. As long as the string length, width and tension stay the same, the produced wave will have the same frequency. We also need to start the wave, by plucking the string.
The String and Schumann Resonance
What does a string have to do with the Schumann Resonances? The string length, width, and tension may be compared to a type of waveguide. A waveguide is something that allows propagated (generated) waves, of specific frequencies, to travel through it. They are “tuned” to the frequency, or frequencies, they must carry, just like the guitar string. A waveguide will reinforce (support) certain frequencies, while other frequencies introduced into it will dissipate. We need a larger waveguide to reinforce lower frequencies, like the thick strings on a base guitar. To reinforce higher frequencies, we need a smaller waveguide, like the thin strings on a violin.
The cavity between the surface of the Earth and the ionosphere acts as a waveguide. This cavity is quite large, so it will reinforce extremely low frequencies. To propagate a wave in the guitar string, we must pluck it. With the Schumann Resonances however, lightning acts as the musician plucking the string. Lightning strikes somewhere around the globe between 50 and 100 times a second, so the Schumann Resonances are constantly being propagated.
If we were to record and analyse the sound coming from a guitar string, we would see that it is composed of many different frequencies. The frequency of the note our ear perceives would be present, but there are also other frequencies present. These other frequencies are not at the same frequency as the perceived musical note though, and they are much lower in intensity (volume). We call the frequency of the perceived note the fundamental, and the other frequencies are known as partials. These partials give the guitar string its unique sound. A nylon string and a steel string, tuned to the same musical note, would sound different. It is these partials that give each string a unique sound.
The same is true for the Schumann Resonances. We have the fundamental frequency (7.83Hz), as well as the partial frequencies (14.3Hz, 20.8Hz, 27.3Hz, etc..).
Schumann Resonance Variances
Because the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere are not solid, over time there will be slight variances in the volume of the cavity created between them. Remembering that this cavity acts as a waveguide, and that a waveguide is tuned to reinforce specific frequencies, we know that there will be slight changes in the frequencies of the resonances. These variances in frequency are not massive though. From the long term observations that have been done, variances of no more than about 4 or 5 percent occur. That’s just less than 1Hz, for the fundamental Schumann Resonance, which has an average of 7.83Hz.
Spikes, or sudden frequency variations in the Schumann Resonances are sometimes recorded, however, they cannot always be accounted for. Schumann Resonances are very subtle electromagnetic waves, so the equipment used to measure them is very sensitive. Readings can be influenced by lightning strikes in the area where equipment is located. Power surges in nearby power lines can also cause apparent spikes. These spikes are quite rapid though.
Back To The Guitar String
If you’ve ever watched a guitarist play, you may have seen them play something called a harmonic. This is done by lightly touching a certain part of the string, as it is plucked. This light touch influences the nature of the string (remembering it acts like a wave guide), and causes one of the partials to sound louder than the fundamental. By doing this, a different note can be played on the string, to the note it is tuned to. Different harmonic notes can be played by touching the string in different places.
This phenomenon also occurs with the Schumann Resonances. The nature of the cavity between the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere (waveguide) can be influenced by certain environmental, solar and cosmic anomalies. Things like solar flares can cause certain Schumann Resonances to temporarily have a greater intensity than the fundamental Schumann Resonance. When the solar flare has passed though, the fundamental will once again have the greatest intensity.
So Is The Schumann Resonance Increasing?
We now have a bit more of an understanding to answer this logically. Knowing that the cavity between the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere acts as a waveguide, let’s ponder this question.
We’ve seen that the smaller a waveguide is, the higher the frequencies it will reinforce, and vice versa. With this knowledge we are aware that, for the fundamental Schumann Resonance to increase, the cavity between the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere would have to become smaller. Let’s use guitar strings again to get an idea of how many percent smaller this cavity would have to become. We’ll use the E and A strings on a bass guitar for this. These 2 strings are next to each other on the guitar.
The note E vibrates at a frequency of 41.2Hz, and the note A vibrates at 55Hz. The A string vibrates at 13.8Hz higher than the E string. The string thicknesses of the E and A strings of my favourite base strings are 2.667mm and 2.159mm respectively. Doing a bit of maths we can see that, to get an increase in frequency of 13.8Hz, the E string would have to become just more than 20% thinner.
It’s not entirely accurate but, from this example, we can see that for the fundamental Schumann Resonance of 7.83Hz to increase to 36Hz, as some are stating, the volume of the cavity between the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere would have to decrease by way over 30%. Either the Earth would have to have rapidly increased in size, or the ionosphere would have had to shrink considerably. I’m sure you would agree that if either of those things had happened, we would be very well aware of it!
So, I ask you again, is the Schumann Resonance really increasing?
Such a massive increase in frequency of the fundamental Schumann Resonance of 7.83Hz would have dire consequences on the health of every living organism on this planet.

I will be posting many more articles about the link between the frequency of the Schumann Resonance and our health, so please do subscribe and follow us.
When we consider what has been discovered regarding the Schumann Resonance and our response to it, there’s a clear picture painted that the medical sciences should be paying more attention to it. Body Frequency Alignment uses these principals for healing, with great success, but there is still so much more to be discovered.
