Earlier in the year reports started coming in to 911 operators about a loud low pitched boom, followed very often by an underlying humming sound and light tremors underfoot. Local television channels investigated only to rule out artillery tests, accidents, Earth quakes, and impending natural disasters. Shortly afterward, parts of Asia experienced one of the worst natural disasters in history. South America soon experienced a rash of very intense earthquakes. In fact, a rash of earthquakes were experienced in several other places across the globe. It seemed Mother Earth was very angry indeed and letting us know all about it.
After about two weeks, the booming stopped and everyone went on about their lives. Nothing more exciting was happening so the rapid fire recording uploads on youtube, the virulent FB and social networking posts stopped, and slowly but surely people went back to their normal non-booming lives.
And now the Earth sounds are back. This intense but low booming sound, followed by the underlining hum sounding very much like an extended OM, and sometimes tremors underfoot. It arrives once again at the very week the world eagerly anticipated the end of the world. And here we are November 21, Winter Solstice and the world is once again asking, what exactly is that sound?!
Once upon a time we lived in caves. When the Earth did something strange we reacted out of fear and superstition, believing it was a sign of something horrific about to happen and would respond accordingly. Today we have a more logical approach to strange activity in our Earth. Our Earth moves constantly beneath our feet. Most of the time we never notice this movement. This movement is caused by underground rock formations shifting up and down according to the temperature of the Earth and whatever else may be going on in the area. This doesn’t happen silently. For instance, earthquakes would certainly intensify the sound and highly intense quakes could be felt hundreds of miles away if an area is on a fault line. One theory is the electromagnetic field of the Earth, both near the Earth and on the outer ring of the Earth’s orbit, have changed and the sounds are merely reflecting those changes. Other theories include vibrations being emitted from solar wind storms, plates of rock shifting hundreds of feet beneath our feet, plates shifting in the core of our planet, and of course there are the doomsday fans that have more ominous theories.
While there is no one explanation for the sounds, recordings of our planet from space confirm that our planet do indeed make noises. Chirps, hums, ringing sounds, something of low range hums or low grade sonic booms can also very clearly be heard. As these sounds are heard more and more around the world, recorded, and studied, we are becoming more and more aware of our changing Earth. While some regard these sounds with fear, others regard it as a sign that our Earth is moving into a dimensional shift that is energetic, bringing us into a new stage of awareness.
One of the more viable theories is the sounds we are experiencing may be energetic, but they are also very very physical. Our ice caps are melting at an alarming rate. Whereas before we had dense forests and ice covered continents to muffle the sounds of our planet, these things have been greatly diminished, both by environmental and human causes. The result is greater ability to hear our planet. The plates of the Earth shift with the changing temperature and ecosystems, and they do not do this silently. Nor do corporate sized icebergs break away and fall into the ocean silently. Sound is a series of vibrations, the energetic translation of movement whether by air or something more solid and the more solid the more vibrations. These vibrations move in waves, sort of like the waves you create when you drop a stone in the center of a pool of water.
Unfortunately, these sounds are also accompanied by physical responses to them. Complaints of intense migraines coming and going with the sounds, ringing in the ears, rapid heart beats, ears “popping”, low level anxiety attacks, seeing spots, blurs, or shadow people, having bizarre dreams on an elevated level, and many other similar complaints may show a connection between the sounds our planet makes and the neurological responses our bodies have with certain sounds. Low level humming can stimulate nerves to the point of triggering anxiety, migraines, or spots. If something is unexplained our brain will create an explanation and if it can not create one immediately, it triggers a response that tells the body it is under stress.
Which leads us back to our ancestors Fred and Barney. We tend to be afraid of what we don’t understand. Our Earth is a remarkable creation. It changes, grows, land masses disappear and others change shape entirely. New creatures and exotic new species of flowers are being discovered so quickly zoologists and botanists are scrambling to be the first to name them. Entire species vanish over night and new ones appear in their place to fill their niche in the ecosystem. That our Earth is making a sound we can hear, even if it is somewhat disarming at first, is remarkable to me. It has done nothing short of allow me a greater appreciation for this beautiful world we live in and a deeper connection to it and everything on it.
