How to read the Schumann Resonance Charts

This post is about how to read the Schumann Resonance (SR) charts which you can Find at the Space Observing System at Tomsk Science University, located in Siberia.

“The Schumann resonances (SR) are a set of spectrum peaks in the extremely low frequency (ELF) portion of the Earth’s electromagnetic field spectrum. Schumann resonances are global electromagnetic resonances, generated and excited by lightning discharges in the cavity formed by the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere. … In the normal mode descriptions of Schumann resonances, the fundamental mode is a standing wave in the Earth-ionosphere cavity with a wavelength equal to the circumference of the Earth.” (Wikipedia)

Colour code for the colours on the chart

Here is a sample chart which you will see at the above website

DATES: Look at the top of the chart. You’ll see that the chart divides into three-day sequences, with the dates printed across the top horizontal of the chart. Dates move left to right, most recent on the right.

TIMES: Next, look at the the bottom of the chart. You’ll see the times, which present in a 0-24 hour sequence, one block of 24 hours for each corresponding date above. The chart uses local Tomsk (Siberia) time which is GMT+7. You’ll need to convert the chart times to your local time.

SR VALUES: Now look at the left vertical side of the chart. These numbers represent the framework for reading the Schumann Resonance peak values — lowest at top progressing to the highest at bottom, in increments of 4 Hz. SR frequencies are relatively stable and do not change. Also, there is not just one SR frequency, but an array of peak frequencies. The SR values cover a range from 3 Hz to 60 Hz, with set values at intervals roughly 6.5 Hz apart, except for the lowest value, 4.11. Because different authorities post slightly different values for the SR peaks, here are the rounded off SR peak values pretty much agreed upon universally: 4, 7.83 (fundamental SR), 14, 20, 26, 33, 39, 45, 59. All measured in Hz or cycles per second.

The SR frequencies are read ACROSS or HORIZONTALLY, usually in the green intensity shade. You can easily track a specific frequency through the 3-day cycle. You’ll see that the green lines typically indicate at the 7.83, 14, 20, and 26 Hz frequencies. Other frequencies you’ll see, less frequently, are the lowest, 4 Hz, and the 33 Hz and higher.

SR AND HUMAN BRAINWAVES: Here’s the cool part: These Schumann Resonance ELF (Extremely Low Frequency) waves in the Earth’s magnetic field just happen to OVERLAP with the electrical patterns (“brain waves”) observed across the cortex of the human brain. Studies have shown that SR frequencies have particular effects on the human brain and nervous system, the cardiovascular system, the autonomous nervous system, circadian rhythms, immune function, DNA, and more. The fundamental Schuman Resonance, 7.83 Hz, corresponds to the high theta of the human brainwave range.

Human brainwaves and SR correspondences:

Delta:  0 Hz to 4 Hz corresponds with SR 4.11 Hz

Theta:  4 Hz to 8 Hz corresponds with SR 4.11 Hz, SR 7.83 Hz

Alpha:  8 Hz to 12 Hz corresponds with SR 7.83 Hz

Beta:  12 Hz to 30 Hz* corresponds with SR 14 Hz, 20 Hz, 26 Hz

Gamma:  30 Hz to 100 Hz corresponds with SR 33 Hz, 39 Hz, 45 Hz, 59 Hz

*There are differing opinions among authorities as to the demarcation between upper limit of beta and onset of gamma brainwaves. Some cite 25 Hz, others 40 Hz. Most seem to cite 30 Hz. Just know that upper value is a bit fluid.

COLOR CODE: Intensity readings go from lowest blue (background intensity) to green to yellow to white (highest). Typical SR readings are in green range.

IMPORTANT: The SR is read HORIZONTALLY, so you’ll be looking at the green horizontal lines. (Do not consider the VERTICAL white lines or white ‘splashes’ as SR readings.)

VERTICAL WHITE LINES/SPLASHES: So, what ARE those vertical WHITE lines or wider splashes? In general, they represent energy bursts or ionospheric plasma excitations. For the most part, the electromagnetic (EM) bursts are probably lightning-related or TLE-related. While lightning is THE major driver of the SR, electromagnetic bursts have often been found to be sprites, a type of lightning phenomena that occurs high in the atmosphere:

“It is now believed that many of the Schumann resonances transients (Q bursts) are related to the transient luminous events (TLEs). In 1995 Boccippio et al.[38] showed that sprites, the most common TLE, are produced by positive cloud-to-ground lightning occurring in the stratiform region of a thunderstorm system, and are accompanied by Q-burst in the Schumann resonances band.” (Wikipedia)

Transient luminous events (TLEs) are upper atmosphere electrical discharges such as sprites, ELVES, and jets. To read more about transient luminous events, here’s a good article, with photos:

In addition to intense lightning and TLEs, plasma excitations could also be caused by:

— intense thunderstorming

— solar activity (e.g. solar winds, CMEs, solar flares)

— geomagnetic disturbances (resulting from solar activity)

— some speculate HAARP and scalar weapons discharges may affect the SR

— energy bursts of unknown origin

EFFECT OF ENERGY BURSTS ON SR READINGS: When ionospheric plasma gets excited, the SR waves at various resonances can get excited, as well. You’ll often see a wider, “puffier” green color displayed behind, around, or following an energy burst. You may see the “excitation” activate the higher SR values that correspond with the brain’s higher beta and gamma frequencies. I often call these the “transformation waves.” Energy bursts can also trigger the low 4.11 Hz SR and the fundamental 7.83 Hz that correspond to our theta brainwave. This wave is incredibly transforming, as well. It’s been called the “miracle wave” for its deep healing, calming, and rebalancing qualities; theta accesses the subconscious mind.

When these energy bursts first started happening back in 2014, the human monitors at the Space Observing System at Tomsk Science University thought an equipment malfunction had caused the anomaly. But upon checking, they realized that equipment was fine and had, indeed, recorded SR values in a higher range not seen before. But as to the origin of the spikes, they had no answers.

A SPECULATIVE OBSERVATION: When these plasma spikes occur, perhaps humans are receiving a double impact: not only are the SR frequencies resonating with our brain waves (theta, alpha, beta, and gamma) but we are also feeling the effects of the ionospheric energy bursts themselves. For those who are energy-sensitive, these plasmic excitations or energy disturbances may be felt or sensed — much like a sensitive can “feel” geomagnetic storming, distant earthquakes and volcanoes, the magnetic pull of a full moon, or incoming  photonic or cosmic energies.

“Every second, a multitude of pulses travel around the world in this unique, resonant chamber between Earth and the ionosphere, sending colluding signals to all microorganisms. These signals couple us to the Earth’s magnetic field. Named after their discoverer, these Schumann Resonances (SR) drive the harmonizing pulse for life in our world.” – Eric Thompson

  1. Hi from Australia 🦶
    Thank you for this explanation… with all this beautiful energy frequencies dancing going on in our Biosphere, I get deeply concerned about the wifi 5G satellites 🛰 that will be adding to & interfering with these beautiful Earth energies… our brains are best tuned in with Earth than a mobile phone. Wireless microwave radiation is biologically damaging. Scientists and Drs are trying to stop this crazy 5G satellites. We are subtle electrical beings as is all life here under the ionosphere. Peace and wellness Blessings 💫


    1. The energy from the light is stronger and will over power the dark energies. I have heard that 5g hasn’t been switched on to the extent that the dark forces would have liked and that the 5g towers will be used as Tesla towers to emit positive vibrations by the white hat alliance. Do what you can to protect yourself – orgonite, shugite, etc. But most of all don’t live in fear, raise your vibration by connecting with nature, crystals etc. Sending love to you x


      1. Thank you,
        Yes, I’m protecting & connecting, with increased awareness, raising our vibration is imperative at this time, with the Solstice & planetary alignments coming up as well.
        I will invision what you have described, for the greater good of all. I know the frequencies of wireless are no where near what they initially planned, personally I don’t think biology will servive 60Ghz. Education and awareness I am glowing with that. I Love life.
        The general consumers of tech are completely unaware of the effects of non ionising radiation, as the media & tech companies have master planned out for 30yrs.
        Be the ☀️& 💓
        Blessings to you.


  2. Just to let you know that the definition of Schumann resonances at Wikipedia is not quite complete. Lightning maintains energy levels in Earth’s atmosphere along with other sources. The actual frequency shifts known as Schumann resonances are activated as Earth rotates to face inline with the sun. This gives us diurnal cycles that correlate with brain wave frequencies.
