Thanks to a relatively strong solar storm, those living in northern parts of the United States had a chance to take in the vivid colors that normally can only be seen from extremely high latitudes.
Experts say the combined energy from two recent solar events has arrived, prompting the Space Weather Prediction Center to issue a strong geomagnetic storm watch for Saturday.
Wait. What’s a solar storm? Basically, the sun is a giant ball of gas: 92.1% hydrogen and 7.8% helium. Every now and then, it spits out a giant burst of gas that contains magnetic properties called a coronal mass ejection. These ejections are sometimes associated with solar flares, the most explosive events in the solar system. The sun has released two ejections in the past few days, and both are linked to solar flares.
NASA says the second flare is an X1.6 class, putting it in the most intense category. The energy from those two ejections is now hitting Earth. Space weather experts aren’t sure what this solar storm will do. Earth’s atmosphere usually protects humans, but you might want to keep a flashlight handy. Solar storms can knock out power, interfere with GPS and radio communications — including those on commercial airliners — and damage satellites.
“People on the ground really don’t have to worry,” said Lika Guhathakurta, a program scientist with NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory. She said solar storms don’t affect humans on the ground, although astronauts could be at risk. And our technology. But don’t worry too much.
NASA can take steps to protect the crew members on the International Space Station, and satellite operators can turn off sensitive sensors on satellites. Should we be worried the solar storm will fry our smartphones or other gadgets? “No, very unlikely,” Dr. Petrus Martens, an expert on solar flares and a professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Georgia State University, told CNN. “Of course if we lose the (power) grid, that will eventually affect cell phones and the Internet as well.” Besides power grids and satellites, Martens says other possible impacts are: • Distortions in GPS readings of up to a few yards. That is not much, but it can be crucial for military applications; for example, targeting by drones. • Increased corrosion of long pipelines like the Alaska oil pipeline. • Homing pigeons going off course. (Martens is not joking about that one.) Solar storms have caused havoc on Earth before. On March 13, 1989, a solar storm knocked out power for the entire province of Quebec for 12 hours. Power grids in the United States were affected but didn’t have blackouts. NASA says some satellites tumbled out of control for hours during what’s known as the Quebec Blackout. The space shuttle Discovery was in orbit at the time and had a mysterious sensor problem that went away after the storm, NASA says.
On the upside, solar storms also create beautiful aurora. Aurora watchers in the northern United States who are outside major metropolitan areas should be watching the skies the next few nights. “A fantastic display of Northern Lights as far south as the northern half of the U.S.” is possible, Martens said.–By Amanda Barnett CNN
The Esoteric Aspect: Beneficial Opportunity to ride the Power Wave
According to study published in the New Scientist back in 1998, there is a direct connection between the Sun’s solar storms and human biological effects.
The conduit which facilitates the charged particles from the Sun to human disturbance — is the very same conduit which steers Earth’s weather —– the magnetic field. Animals and humans have a magnetic field which surrounds them — in the very same way the magnetic field surrounds the Earth as a protector.
Electromagnetic activity from the sun affects our electronic devices and human electromagnetic field. We are physically, mentally, and emotionally altered by electromagnetic charges from the sun, our body can feel sleepy but also become highly energized.
Psychological effects of CMEs (coronal mass ejections) are typically short lived and include headache, palpitations, mood swings, and feeling generally unwell. Chaotic or confused thinking, and erratic behaviors also increase. Solar storms can drive our emotions and maximize it to both good and bad side – the point here is to be aware of it.
Pineal gland in our brain is also affected by the electromagnetic activity which causes the gland to produce excess melatonin, a hormone which can cause sleepiness but it’s also known that some people have opposite side effects, usually those that are aware of the effects.
Riding the power wave – pineal gland stimulation
Our pineal glands have excess melatonin production during solar storms – electromagnetic activity. Many biological effects of melatonin are produced through activation of melatonin receptors, while others are due to its role as a pervasive and powerful antioxidant, with a particular role in the protection of nuclear and mitochondrial DNA.
Pineal gland is also referred as the third eye, and the third eye is also known as the inner eye. The third eye is a mystical and esoteric concept referring in part to the ajna (brow) chakra in certain dharmic spiritual traditions, in particular Hinduism. This concept was later adopted by Christian mystics and spiritualists as well as people from other religious faiths. It is also spoken of as the gate that leads within to inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness. Among Christian mystics, the term is used in a broad sense to indicate a non-dualistic perspective. In New Age spirituality, the third eye may symbolize a state of enlightenment or the evocation of mental images having deeply personal spiritual or psychological significance. The third eye is often associated with visions, clairvoyance (which includes the ability to observe chakras and auras), precognition, and out-of-body experiences. People who have allegedly developed the capacity to utilize their third eyes are sometimes known as seers.
For the reasons most of you know – humans tend to have their pineal glands heavily calcified – sleeping.
Fluoride (found in tap water, toothpaste, processed foods…) is just one of the things that causes calcification of pineal gland. Fluoride is magnetically attracted to the pineal gland where it forms calcium phosphate crystals more than anywhere else in the body. How to decalcify pineal gland? One excellent link is here.
Third eye should be active, vibrant and strong… the process of decalcification sometimes includes headaches and sleepiness… – the same as they say for solar storms like the one in effect now.
… enjoy the weekend.

With 60,000 miles of vein and vessel traveling within us, circulating 6 quarts (1.5 gallons) of blood through the body two to three times every minute; traveling a range of 12,000 miles per hour, or four times the distance across the U.S. from coast to coast every minute! Can you even conceive the thought of YOURSELF???
To Begin: Man is constructed of 12 major organizations that work interdependently to sustain life force. These organizations consist of an intricate network of disciplined systems that operate in synchronistic patterns to support and maintain the independent operation of each system.
These twelve systems produce, sustain, and enhance the physiology of the human formula; independent from man’s effort or awareness; the preprogram of the brain so to speak. It is an intricate network of universal forces and counter-forces that establishes the foundation of life as we know it.
The flawless system of cooperation and interdependent support expressed in the human form is the Natural Scripture of organization for our express benefit. It’s counterpart, by man, known as the ‘Holy Scripture’ written in obscure allegory is within the premise of the 12 Disciples of Jesus; and just as the one disciple who failed, brought down the whole body of Jesus’ primary followers; so too, the betrayal of one our internal systems will bring down all our primary systems. My goal is to understand which system did ‘Judas’ represent and guard against it’s corruption.
Prepare to take advantage of realignment.
What Mercury Retrograde effects?
The planet Mercury rules all activities that relate to communications, travel, learning such as:
- signing agreements
- classes and schools
- sending correspondence
- communications equipment such as computers, radios, and phones
- traveling and travel equipment such as cars, bicycles, trains, and planes
Mercury Retrograde periods are not considered idealfor engaging in Mercury related activities such as:
- public promotions
- making important decisions
- purchasing communications equipment
- signing contracts
- initiating business deals
- sending important correspondence or any type of message
- starting school or any important project
- beginning new enterprise (as plans may reverse later)
A Mercury retrograde period is considered excellent for:
- reviewing and revising goals and plans
- catching up on old business / re-organizing routine
- cleaning out the metaphorical closet
- Spiritual reflection
The Sun’s annual crossing of the equator; where it stands directly overhead bringing a period of equal day and night everywhere on earth; marks the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, or autumn in the Southern Hemisphere.
March is the vernal equinox and also the time when the water sign of Pisces enters into Aries, the creative fire sign. Aries is the fire sign of new beginnings, and much esoteric significance is attributed to this time of the year.
Following excerpt from: “Aligning with Truth”
It is an excellent time to initiate a new order within your life.
– It is an ideal time for burning out the old — the burning of the dross — so that new seeds have room to sprout and be given new expression.
– It is also a time in which the veil between the physical and the spiritual is thinned, creating opportunities to access and invoke dynamic spiritual energy into one’s life.
– Its energy can be used to accelerate our own growth or to open new patterns for it throughout the rest of the spring.
– It is an excellent time to invoke energy that will assist you in making things new within all areas of your life.
– The inner temples are more accessible so that the secrets of life can be more deeply attuned to.
– It is a powerful time for releasing fiery healing energies.
– For the advanced disciple it is an ideal time to fashion the soul body so that the individual can function consciously in the spiritual world.
For the true student of the spiritual mysteries, it is during the spring that the energy is available that facilitates the undergoing of discipleship. The individual must learn to roll away the stones of personal and sense limitation and come forth, bringing the Inner Light out into the external world. At this time of the year, the individual can open to the path of probation and learn to access the vibrant force of the planet to heal the self and others. http://mytruthsetsmefree.wordpress.com/2012/03/21/spiritual-mysteries-of-the-vernal-equinox/
