Twenty Three Tantra Technics

And there is this accusation that Tantra is basically sex oriented and many indulge in it for Orgies.

I have been meaning to write on Tantra as Password protected , paid articles to restrict access.

I shall do so some time in future.

In the mean while I was worried about some youngsters(Male and Female) asking me whether they can perform Yoni/Linga Pooja.

I have decided to out line the outline what Tantra is.

What is Tantra?

It is a very complicated subject and a dangerous one too for the uninitiated.

I have refrained from writing on this lest some may start practicing it with out understanding the implications.

I seem to have referred to the Tantra in some of my articles.

I have been receiving mails on this and some of them are disturbing in the sense that it might affect some who venture to practice it.

In the mean while I was worried about some youngsters(Male and Female)  asking me whether  they can perform Yoni/Linga Pooja.

I have decided to out line what Tantra is.

Do not practice Tantra unless initiated by a Guru .

As I have indicated in many of my articles a real Guru will find you if you are ardent enough.

There are various ways to realize Self/God.

There are,

Gnana Yoga, Path of Knowledge,at the mental level,

Bhakti Yoga,Surrendering to God, emotional Level,

Karma Yoga,path of action, Physical and mental level and

Raja Yoga, reaching the mental discipline through Physical control/regulation.

These were developed by Rishis by personal experience.

It is not mandatory that that all of them suit an individual.

As there are as many dispositions among people there are many paths.

So they differ and what suits one may not suit another.

There is no blanket solution.

One’s mental capacity and wisdom level is to be understood and dispositions analysed before any of the procedures are recommended.

Hence a Guru is needed.

Who is a Guru?

A realized soul who dispassionately analyses you and offer solutions and he does not advertise himself nor does he seek any thing in return.

For more on this read my post who is a Guru.

Self realization is a personal goal and can be attained only by personal experience.

So when one practices any of the methods of Yoga mentioned above, one comes across some practices which have been productive and they are handed down to us.

It need not be conducive to our disposition.

One such practice is Tantra.

There are various practices, Sadhanas in following  in any of the four Yogas.

They are,

Mantra, mystically locked Sounds,

Yantra. Geometric images to concentrate with the aid of the Mantras, and Tantras.

Apart from these, which come under Raja yoga and Karma yoga, there are slokas and Stuthis.

Slokas and Stuthis may be followed by any one.

Not Mantra, Yantra and Tantra.

A severe discipline is needed.

These need Guru Upadesa.

However there are some  Mantras that can be used without a Guru but by taking Subrahmanya, Dakshinamurthy or Krishna as Guru.

I have posted such Mantras.

Tantra does not find a place in Vedas.

They are found in Agamas and even this is not confirmed.

As stated earlier, these are individual tools obtained while performing any of the four yogas.

Second-hand knowledge of the self gathered from books or gurus can never emancipate a man until its truth is rightly investigated and applied; only direct realisation will do that. Realise yourself, turning the mind inward.Tripura Rahasya, 18: 89



Tantra (Sanskrit: तन्त्र), also called Tantrism and Tantric religion, is an ancient Indian tradition of beliefs and meditation and ritual practices that seeks to channel the divine energy of the macrocosm or godhead into the human microcosm, to attain siddhis and moksha. It arose no later than the 5th century CE, and it had a strong influence on both Hinduism and Buddhism.

According to David N. Lorenzen, two different kind of definitions of Tantra exist, a “narrow definition” and a “broad definition.” According to the narrow definition, Tantrism, or “Tantric religion,” refers only to the traditions which are based on the Tantras, Samhitas and Agamas. This definition refers primarily to a tradition which is primarily based in the higher social classes, which were literate, and lived in or close by urban centers.

According to the broad definition, Tantra refers to a broad range of religious traditions with a “magical” orientation. This includes the upper class texts and traditions, but also practices and rituals from lower social classes, which were less educated, and lived more in the rural areas.

According to David Gordon White,

Tantra is that Asian body of beliefs and practices which, working from the principle that the universe we experience is nothing other than the concrete manifestation of the divine energy of the godhead that creates and maintains that universe, seeks to ritually appropriate and channel that energy, within the human microcosm, in creative and emancipatory ways


Characteristics of Tantra.

  1. Centrality of ritual, especially the worship of deities
  2. Centrality of mantras
  3. Visualisation of and identification with a deity
  4. Need for initiation, esotericism and secrecy
  5. Importance of a teacher (guru, acharya)
  6. Ritual use of mandalas (maṇḍala)
  7. Transgressive or antinomian acts
  8. Revaluation of the body
  9. Revaluation of the status and role of women
  10. Analogical thinking (including microcosmic or macrocosmic correlation)
  11. Revaluation of negative mental states

Purpose of Tantra.

Tantric ritual seeks to access the supra-mundane through the mundane, identifying the microcosm with the macrocosm.The Tantric aim is to sublimate (rather than negate) reality.The Tantric practitioner seeks to use prana (energy flowing through the universe, including one’s body) to attain goals which may be spiritual, material or both

Tantric teachings are passed on orally in a teacher-student relationship Initiation by a teacher is necessary for the practice to be successful.

Tantra Technics.

  • Dakshina: Donation or gift to one’s teacher
  • Diksha: Initiation ritual which may include shaktipat
  • Yoga, including breathing techniques (pranayama) and postures (asana), is employed to balance the energies in the body/mind.
  • Mudras, or hand gestures
  • Mantras: reciting syllables, words, and phrases
  • Singing of hymns of praise (stava)
  • Mandalas
  • Yantras: symbolic diagrams of forces at work in the universe
  • Visualization of deities and Identification with deities, Dhyana, Dharna
  • Puja (worship ritual)
  • Animal sacrifice
  • Use of taboo substances such as alcohol, cannabis, meat and other entheogens.
  • Prayashcitta – an expiation ritual performed if a puja has been performed wrongly
  • Nyasa
  • Ritual purification (of idols, of one’s body, etc.)
  • Guru bhakti (devotion) and puja
  • Yatra: pilgrimage, processions
  • Vrata: vows, sometimes to do ascetic practices like fasting
  • The acquisition and use of siddhis or supernormal powers. Associated with the left hand path tantra.
  • Ganachakra: A ritual feast during which a sacramental meal is offered.
  • Ritual Music and Dance.
  • Maithuna: ritual sexual union (visualized or with an actual physical consort).
  • Dream yoga.
  • It is evident these are the offshoots of Yoga.

Bhogar Explains Gayatri Mantra New Approach

This expands as the Universe.

This power is in many Forms

This Power Impels our Mind to function.

Let us Pray to Light the most potent of this Power .

Seven births indicate the number of births one has to undergo.

The interpretation of the Gayatri Mantra depends on one’s spiritual status and his enlightenment level.

I have written a few articles on the meaning of the Gayatri Mantra, including the explanation by Adi Shankaracharya.

The interpretation  depends on one’s system of Philosophy/Faith.

Whatever the interpretation  is the core meaning and the power of Gayatri remains unchanged.

Siddhas are Realized souls who are timeless.

Gayatri Mantra.jpg
The Gayatri Mantra.

Their interpretation of the Gayatri Mantra provides a different and novel Perspective.

One might notice that no deity is mentioned in the Gayatri mantra.

This is like the Ganesha Mantra,

suklambratharam vishnum sasi varnam chatur bhujam,

prasanna vadnam dhyayeeth sarva vignopasanthaye.

The term Vishnu means the one who supports.

Siddhas refer to Reality the Brahman as Nirguna, Without Attributes.

And the mention Siva  mostly in the sense of attribute-less reality as auspicious.

Siva means auspiciousness.

An interesting explanation of the Gayatri Mantra is provided by Bhogar,a Siddha on par with sage Agastya.

He occupies the second list of Siddhas after Siva and is among the top of the eighteen Sidddhas.

Bhogar explains,

The sound ‘o’ expanded by an explosion into the sounds of ‘A’,’U’ and ‘M’

These three sound became the Motion.

This in turn expanded into the Five Elements,

Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether.

These in turn combined to form four different wombs and seven births.

This expands as the Universe.

This power is in many Forms

This Power Impels our Mind to function.

Let us Pray to Light the most potent of this Power .

Seven births indicate the number of births one has to undergo.

As to four wombs (Yonis) one explanation can be the three genders,Male, Female and Neuter.

In this case what does Bhogar indicate?

The other explanation is the essence of Saiva Siddhantha.

Pasu, ( Jivatma, individual soul)

Pathi (Paramatma, the Brahman, Universal Soul without Attributes.

Paasam, the bond akin to Maya/Avidya of Advaita.

I am trying to get clarification on this


‘ஓ என்ற புள்ளியாகிய இறைவன் ஓம் என்ற பிரணவமாக பெரு வெடிப்பானான் . இந்த பிரணவம் அகார உகார மகார என்ற சக்தியாக விரிவானது . இந்த ஓங்காரம் விரிவடைந்து அகார உகார , மகர நாத விந்து சக்தியானது . . இது பஞ்ச வித்தாக , பஞ்ச பூதமாக விரிவானது . பஞ்ச பூதங்கள் நால்வகை யோனி எழுவகை பிறப்பாக இப்பிர பஞ்சமாக விரிவானது . இந்த பஞ்சபூத இறை சக்தி நமது புத்தியை செயல் படவைக்கிறது. இந்த இறை சக்தி பல வடிவாக இந்த பிரபஞ்சதில் உள்ளது அவற்றுள் மிக சிறந்த வடிவான ஒளி வடிவத்தில் இறைவனை தியானிப்போம் . இந்த விளக்கத்தில் காயத்திரியும் இல்லை சூரியனும் இல்லை

OM In Sumerian Prayer 2600 BC Predates Veda

I have written on the early connections between the Sumerians and The Tamils of India and the probability of the ancestors of Sumerians and MU people being Tamils.

And Lord Rama , His Brother Bharata and King Dasaratha feature in Sumerian Kingslist!

“Those who recite the sound Om, (activates deathless Light in the body) and becomes radiant (amar su-ti-a)”

~ Temple Hymn 31

OM, the Sacred Mantra of Hinduism is powerful and is capable of altering Genes, and when chanted properly and thrown in a Tonoscope shows the Image of Sri Yantra,  a special Geometric Pattern used by Hindus in worship

The OM MantraImage.jpeg
OM Mantra..


Please read my articles on these.

OM contains three letters/sounds,


U, and


Sumerian Cuneiform

Image Credit.www.ancient

While A raises from the mouth,U from the throat, M raises from the stomach, the only three places from where the sounds can originate.

OM is used as a prefix of All Mantras.

It brings in Prosperity and helps concentrate the Mind and is used as a tool in Yoga.

Earliest reference to OM is found in the Rig Veda.

Now Rig Veda is dated around 1900 BC, though I am o the opinion that it should be around 5000 BC at the latest.

Lest the Heading of the Post may mislead, I am furnishing a comment and my reply.


Ramanan Sir The Sumerian prayer predates Vedas is not correct. Because Vedas are the oldest knowledge in the world. Sumerians were an Indian Colony in the Middle East. They were from Sumeru region of the Himalayas. the prayer period of 2600 b.c. is much after Mahabharat War which shattered Worldwide Common Vedic Empire Of India. So how anything can predate Vedas? Please give your comments Regards Shrirang Sudrik


  • RAMANAN50 says:

    Dear Shrirang, What I meant to convey was that the Sumerian Prayer’s reference to OM pushes the Date of the Vedas from 1900 BC by at least by 1000 Years, the Sumerian Prayer being dated at 2600BC. The article is meant to convey only this point.The post’s heading can be interpreted as you have observed,
    As to Sumeria being part of the Sanatana Dharma, I have written quite a few article.I should improve.Why no calls for quite some time?Regds

(Date of Rig Veda has always been controversial as it is the oldest surviving literary work. Generally it is put at 1900 BC. Let us see how it came to that date and how experts differ on that date.)- Controversies in History

Max Muller
Max Muller assigned the period 1500 BCE to 500 BCE for Rigveda Samhita. One of the reasons given is that beginnings of human kind cannot be earlier to 4000 B.C.E. Muller took particular care to ensure that the hypothetical Aryan invasion took place after the Biblical flood and he arbitrarily assigned a date of 1200 B.C to the Rig Veda, which is considered as the oldest among the four Vedas. Since the evidence was flimsy, he recanted his earlier assignment near the end of his life.

But the Religious practices of the Sumerians  refer to OM.

I have written on the early connections between the Sumerians and The Tamils of India and the probability of the ancestors of Sumerians and MU people being Tamils.

Those who recite the sound Om, (activates deathless Light in the body) and becomes radiant (amar su-ti-a)”

~ Temple Hymn 31 (Source)



The mantra Om or “AUM” is typically associated with the Hindu tradition and is considered the primordial sound, one of the most ancient and sacred mantras. (You can read more about its sacred meaninghere.)

With this in mind, we were surprised and excited to come across a possible reference to this mantra in a Sumerian text from c. 2300 BCE – potentially over a thousand years older than the earliest references to it in Vedic literature. If true, the implications of this discovery are enormous.

Dr. K. Loganathan, a researcher in SumeroTamil studies believes that there is a strong link between the ancient Tamil language and ancient Sumerian and that Sumerian is, in fact, Archaic Tamil. Based on this hypothesis, he has developed a method for translating Sumerian tablets by matching a phonological reading of the cuneiform script with the ancient Tamil language, which he believes leads to a more accurate translation than the currently used widespread approach.

For example, Dr. Loganathan cites the following line from Temple Hymn 31 with the conventionally-accepted translation:


[umbin]-se-ba amar su-ti-a ( Who snatches the calf with (his) [cla]ws )

However, by matching these words with ancient Tamil, a very different (and intriguing) meaning emerges:

Ta. Ombi-in isaiba amar sootiya ( Who recites this mantra sound Om (Ombi-in-isai), lights up (sutiya) deathlessness (amar) ) 

Or :

Those who recite the sound Om, (activates deathless Light in the body) and becomes radiant (amar su-ti-a)

Dr Loganathan also indicates additional lines that refer to people specifically uttering the sound (i.e., chanting a mantra).

Again in the lines below, the first example is the conventional translation while the second is interpreted from Ancient Tamil.


Traditional translation: [tu-tu-ba-lu] su-ti-a ( Who catches [a man in his net]

SumeroTamil translation: Ta. tuuttuba uLu -sootiya ( Illuminates those people who utter it *tuuttu-bi-a)


Traditional translation: [kala-ga gu-ab-ba] su-ti-a (  [The strong one] who snatches [the bull]

SumeroTamil translation: Ta. kalai-ka  kuuvappa sootiya ( The art of uttering  that gains inner light)

If Dr. Loganathan’s research is correct, there are many profound implications for those interested in ancient Sumeria, ancient India, and spirituality in general.

The earliest Hindu reference to the mantra OM is in the Rigveda, c. 1500-1200 BCE. The Sumerian text containing the lines above (Temple Hymn 31) date from 2300 BCE, meaning this reference to OM could predate the Hindu reference by almost 1,000 years! If true, this mantra has much older roots and origins than the Vedas and seems to have been recognized as spiritually significant in cultures beyond the Hindu and Buddhist (as is commonly perceived today).
OM reference in the Rig Veda.When reading through the translated Sumerian cuneiform tablets, other similarities between the Hindu and Sumerian cultures are at times quite evident, such as for instance a description of the goddess Inana that sounds remarkably similar to the Hindu Kali, a divine female goddess representing the sacred role of the Destroyer.

The Gayatri mantra from the Rig Veda, for example, begins with Om. The mantra is extracted from the 10th verse of Hymn 62 in Book III of the Rig Veda.These recitations continue to be in use, and major incantations and ceremonial functions begin and end with Om.

Researchers in the Massachusetts General Hospital have found,

that the relaxation response – a state of deep rest attained through breathing, meditation, yoga and other practices — triggers changes in gene expression that can affect the body’s immune function, energy metabolism and insulin secretion. The new research — the first to look at rapid, gene-level changes following the relaxation practice — is published in the journal PLOS ONE.

Herbert Benson, a senior author of the new study, first described the “relaxation response” — what he calls the physiologic opposite of fight-or-flight — nearly 40 years ago. He’s now the director emeritus of the Benson-Henry institute for Mind-Body Medicine at MGH, where the technique is used to help patients manage a wide variety of medical conditions from anxiety and chronic pain to cancer.

Benson says the new research should give a credibility boost to his endeavors (which, by the way, non-Westerners have been practicing in various forms for thousands of years). “There’s now a scientific basis for these mind-body approaches that work,” Benson said. “For the mainstream, every little bit of evidence helps.”

Benson’s collaborator, Towia Libermann, PhD, director of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) Genomics, Proteomics, Bioinformatics and Systems Biology Center and co-senior author of the study, says the evidence clearly links the relaxation response to rapid changes in gene expression. “There is a relatively small subset of biological pathways affected by relaxation response,” he said. For instance, a pathway involved in immune disturbances and inflammation was repressed after the relaxation technique while another set of pathways involved in mitochondrial function and energy production were enhanced.

The study involved 52 people — 26 were long-time practitioners of the relaxation response, 26 had never done it, but were trained in the technique. The subjects had blood drawn before, immediately after they practiced, and 15 minutes later, and then researchers used advanced gene expression profiling and systems biology analysis to determine any changes in gene expression. These changes, Libermann said, occurred in both groups but were more pronounced among the long-time relaxers.

Libermann, who has been working with Benson for 10 years, says he was drawn to this research “to convince myself that there’s really something going on here, and it’s not just a placebo effect.” Now, he says: “I’m pretty convinced.” He and Benson are currently investigating whether the relaxation response triggers molecular-level changes in people with hypertension, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and other diseases.

Here’s more from MGH:

In 2008, Benson and Libermann led a study finding that long-term practice of the relaxation response changed the expression of genes involved with the body’s response to stress. The current study examined changes produced during a single session of relaxation response practice, as well as those taking place over longer periods of time.

The study enrolled a group of 26 healthy adults with no experience in relaxation response practice, who then completed an 8-week relaxation response training course. Prior to starting their training, the participants went through what was essentially a control group session – blood samples were taken before and immediately after they listened to a 20-minute health education CD and again 15 minutes later. After completing the training course, a similar set of blood tests was taken before and after participants listened to a 20-minute CD used to elicit the relaxation response as part of daily practice.

The sets of blood tests taken before the training program were designated “novice,” and those taken after training completion were categorized as from “short-term practitioners.” For further comparison a similar set of blood samples was taken from a group of 25 individuals with 4 to 25 years experience regularly eliciting the relaxation response through many different techniques before and after they listened to the same relaxation response CD. Blood samples from all participants were analyzed to determine the expression of more than 22,000 genes at the different time points.

The results revealed significant changes in the expression of several important groups of genes between the novice samples and those from both the short- and long-term sets, with even more pronounced changes in the long-term practitioners. A systems biology analysis of known interactions among the proteins produced by the affected genes revealed that pathways involved with energy metabolism, particularly the function of mitochondria, were upregulated during the relaxation response. Pathways controlled by activation of a protein called NF-κB – known to have a prominent role in inflammation, stress, trauma and cancer – were suppressed after relaxation response elicitation. The expression of genes involved in insulin pathways was also significantly altered.’

OM Earth’s Breath 7.83 Hz,Schumann Resonance

That is your stimuli is converted into electro magnetic wave and is sent across and this is received by the Brain and it decodes and assigns the messages to their respective slots in the Brain.

Now any and everything in the Universe vibrates from the Atom to the Galaxies.

So when the is a stimuli there is electro magnetic activity.

Ultimately our brain decodes everything electro magnetically and it is converted into understandable message when they are processed and sent back.

These vibrations as understood in the light of electromagnetism has thrown some interesting results.

The sound OM (A,U,M) is the sacred chant of Sanatana Dharma, Hinduism.

OM.jpg OM

Sounds originate from three points in the Human Body.

From the Mouth,

Throat and


The alphabets of any and every Language must have these letters.

Schumann Resonance.In the Brain.jpg Schumann Resonance.In the Brain

These letters constitute the entire Universe by their vibrations.

The Universe Vibrates.

Universe is always in Motion.

Motion produces Vibration.

There is a controversy about Vibration and Sound.

Which precedes or causes the other?

Does sound cause Vibration or is it the other way around?

We can observe sound creating vibration and vibration causing sound.

Not all vibrations can cause observable sound.

These vibrations exist in the Universe and within ourselves.

The vibrations can be studied by Spectroscopy.

These vibrations have a direct effect on Electromagnetism.

Our Brain and our nervous system, as we all know, consist of Nerve cells.

Nerve Cells transmit messages to the Brain

Nerve Cells consist of Axon,Dendrites and Nuclei.

When we receive a message or a stimulation of our senses these sensations are carried to the brain by a chain of nerve cells,one transmitting to another.

But there is a microscopic gap between one Nerve( I have used this term so that people can understand-Axon and Dendrites terms are not used in the article.Those interested may read a chapter on Nervous system from any standard text-book for Class x/xii). and another.

This gap is called the Synaptic Gap.

Earlier it was believed that the messages from one nerve to another is being transmitted by a chemical in the Gap.

Now it is found that the messages pass through this gap electromagnetically.

That is your stimuli is converted into electro magnetic wave and is sent across and this is received by the Brain and it decodes and assigns the messages to their respective slots in the Brain.


Now any and everything in the Universe vibrates from the Atom to the Galaxies.

So when the is a stimuli there is electro magnetic activity.

Ultimately our brain decodes everything electro magnetically and it is converted into understandable message when they are processed and sent back.

These vibrations as understood  in the light of electromagnetism has thrown some interesting results.

As said earlier, every thing vibrates, including the Earth.

And Vibration causes resonance.

Earth moves, is in Motion and hence Vibrates.

So it ought to produce Electro Magnetic Waves.

Schumann Resonance.

‘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…

Lightning discharges are considered to be the primary natural source of Schumann resonance excitation; lightning channels behave like huge antennas that radiate electromagnetic energy at frequencies below about 100 kHz.These signals are very weak at large distances from the lightning source, but the Earth–ionosphere waveguidebehaves like a resonator at ELF frequencies and amplifies the spectral signals from lightning at the resonance frequencies.

In an ideal cavity, the resonant frequency of the n-th mode f_{n} is determined by the Earth radius a and the speed of light c.

f_{n} =\frac{c}{2 \pi a}\sqrt{n(n+1)}

The real Earth–ionosphere waveguide is not a perfect electromagnetic resonant cavity. Losses due to finite ionosphere electrical conductivity lower the propagation speed of electromagnetic signals in the cavity, resulting in a resonance frequency that is lower than would be expected in an ideal case, and the observed peaks are wide. In addition, there are a number of horizontal asymmetries – day-night difference in the height of the ionosphere, latitudinal changes in the Earth’s magnetic field, sudden ionospheric disturbances, polar cap absorption, variation in the Earth radius of ± 11 km from equator to geographic poles, etc. that produce other effects in the Schumann resonance power spectra…

This global electromagnetic resonance phenomenon is named after physicist Winfried Otto Schumann who predicted it mathematically in 1952. Schumann resonances occur because the space between the surface of the Earth and the conductive ionosphere acts as a closed waveguide. The limited dimensions of the Earth cause this waveguide to act as a resonant cavity for electromagnetic waves in the ELF band. The cavity is naturally excited by electric currents in lightning. Schumann resonances are the principal background in the electromagnetic spectrum beginning at 3 Hz and extending to 60 Hz, and appear as distinct peaks at extremely low frequencies (ELF) around 7.83 (fundamental),14.3, 20.8, 27.3 and 33.8 Hz.

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. This lowest-frequency (and highest-intensity) mode of the Schumann resonance occurs at a frequency of approximately 7.83 Hz, but this frequency can vary slightly from a variety of factors, such as solar-induced perturbations to the ionosphere, which comprises the upper wall of the closed cavity.[citation needed] The higher resonance modes are spaced at approximately 6.5 Hz intervals

Schumann Resonance.

Studies indicate the chanting of OM produces the same frequency as that of Earth, 7.83 Hz.

Resonances of earth, ie, 7.83,  13.7, 19.6, 25.5, 31.4, 37.3 and 43.2 Hertz of earth. We all know 7.83 hz being the strongest of all, OM or Schumann frequency.

Ohm- 7.83Hz
Gam – 13.7Hz
Hleem – 19.6Hz
Hreem – 25.5Hz
Kleem – 31.4Hz
Krowm – 37.3Hz
Sreem – 43.2Hz

The Schumann Resonances are the result of cosmic energy build-up within the cavity that exists between Earth’s highly conductive surface and the conducting layer in the upper atmosphere called the ionosphere. the space between the surface of the earth and the conductive ionosphere acts as a waveguide. The cavity is naturally excited by energy from lightning strikes. This ionospheric charge creates an electrical shield around the Earth.. The atmosphere is a dielectric insulator, which separates the two. Thus a spherical capacitor as well as a spherical resonator is created and maintained. Electrical signals of sufficient wavelength (low-frequency) are wave-guided around and around between this “sphere within a sphere” and is the base Schumann Resonance of 7.8Hz mainly traveling from West to East.

7.83 HZ or the ALPHA frequency  is the gateway that leads into deeper states of consciousness.

Most people are in an alpha state during the short time immediately before they fall asleep and when the conscious nervous system switches over to the subconscious.
