How The Sun Affects Your Heart and How to Protect Your Cardiovascular System

Did you know that the sun’s activity can have a profound impact on your heart’s health? Last week’s increased solar activity, which led to the mesmerizing aurora borealis being visible as far as Puerto Rico, has brought this topic to the forefront of public attention.

“How can happenings millions of miles away impact my heart?” you might ask. The answer is intricately tied to the magnetic fields that surround both the Earth and our bodies. These fields can be disrupted by solar flares and solar wind bursts, causing potential changes in our heart rate, blood pressure, and even increasing the risk of cardiovascular events.

Recent research has shed light on the fascinating connection between space weather, solar storms, and our cardiovascular well-being, proving what the renowned astronomer Carl Sagan once said, “The cosmos is within us. We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.”

In this article, I’d like to share the profound effects that solar activity, space weather, and Schumann’s resonance can have on your heart. I’ll share my personal opinion on this topic from a spiritual perspective and provide you with 12 proven strategies to protect your heart and cardiovascular system during these cosmic events. Ready to get started? Let’s dive in.

It might sound like a plot from a science fiction novel, but recent studies indicate that solar activity, space weather, and the earth’s magnetic fields significantly impact our cardiovascular health. The sun, while bathing us in light and warmth, also unleashes solar winds and geomagnetic storms that can disrupt not only our technology but also the complex functions of our hearts and cardiovascular system.

Much like a tightrope walker attempting to regain balance after a strong gust, our hearts must adjust to these “cosmic winds,” often resulting in stress and unpredictable reactions. With a rise in heart attacks and strokes during periods of intense solar activity, understanding this delicate equilibrium is of utmost importance if you want to maintain your heart’s health.

Understanding How the Sun Affects Your Heart

Solar storms, also known as geomagnetic storms, occur when the sun releases massive amounts of energy in the form of solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs). These powerful bursts of energy can disrupt the Earth’s magnetic field, causing a range of effects on our planet, including the enchanting aurora displays. However, recent studies have revealed that solar storms can also have a profound impact on our heart health.

The Heart’s Sensitivity to Electromagnetic Fields

Our hearts are incredibly sensitive to electromagnetic fields, and the Earth’s magnetic field plays a crucial role in regulating our heart’s rhythm. When solar storms disrupt this delicate balance, it can lead to increased stress on the cardiovascular system. Research has shown that during periods of heightened solar activity, there is a higher incidence of heart attacks, strokes, and other cardiovascular events.

A long-term study conducted by the HeartMath Institute, in collaboration with researchers from the Prince Sultan Cardiac Center in Saudi Arabia, found that geomagnetic and solar activity can affect the autonomic nervous system (ANS), which controls vital functions like heartbeat, breathing, and digestion. The study revealed that increased cosmic rays, solar radio flux, and Schumann resonance power were associated with changes in heart rate variability (HRV) – a key indicator of ANS function and cardiovascular health.

The Schumann Resonance and the Heart

The Schumann resonance, a set of electromagnetic frequencies generated by lightning discharges in the Earth’s atmosphere, has been called the planet’s “heartbeat” due to its similarity to the human brain’s alpha wave frequencies. Research suggests that the Schumann resonance can influence human brain activity and, in turn, affect our emotional states and perception.

The Sufis, ancient mystics of Islam, taught that the heart is the “little sun” at the center of our being. Just as the sun is the source of life and energy in our solar system, our hearts are the generators of the body’s electromagnetic field. This profound connection between the heart and the sun goes beyond mere symbolism – our hearts draw their electromagnetic energy from the sun, forging a spiritual and energetic link that transcends the boundaries of our physical existence.

The Bigger Picture: An Interstellar Cloud

As we explore the connection between solar activity and heart health, it’s important to consider the bigger picture of our solar system’s journey through the cosmos. Recent scientific research has revealed that our solar system is currently moving through a region of space known as the Local Interstellar Cloud or the “Local Fluff.” This region is characterized by a higher density of interstellar gas and charged particles, or plasma, compared to the surrounding interstellar medium.

The Spiritual and Quantum Significance of Plasma

From a quantum perspective, this physical phenomenon of our solar system moving through a highly charged plasma region can be seen as a physical expression of a much larger spiritual phenomenon taking place. It is part of the universe’s evolutionary impulse, guiding humanity towards a greater understanding of our interconnectedness and the divine nature of all existence.

From a spiritual perspective, plasma can be seen as another form of light. In essence, our bodies are made up of empty spaces filled with light vibrating at a high speed. As our solar system moves through this highly charged plasma region, the amount of plasma interacting with our bodies, hearts, and nervous systems is increasing. This increase in plasma density may be contributing to what spiritual seekers call “ascension,” or an increase in vibrational frequency.

A Paradigm Shift: The Great Awakening

Many spiritual traditions believe that this vibratory change in frequency is leading to a mass awakening of human consciousness. As more and more people experience a heightened sense of awareness and connection to the divine, it is undoubtedly affecting their perception of the world, including our economy, geopolitics, and social structures. This shift in consciousness is often referred to as a “paradigm shift” or a “great awakening.”

My Perspective: The Great Heart Awakening

From my perspective as a Heart Intelligence Coach, I believe what is truly happening is a mass “Heart Awakening” as people move away from a paradigm of separation to a paradigm of interconnection. Moving into the heart collectively means moving into greater integrity or truth by shedding the old structures based on control, lies and fear.

The heart connects us to each other, the Divine, and the universe. It helps us understand how our actions, thoughts, and feelings impact everything. The heart guides us to unconditional love, making it easier to grow spiritually. Heart awakening is essential for true spiritual awakening. Without it, we might think we’re awake but it’s just our spiritualized ego, not real awakening.

The Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Symptoms of Ascension

As our solar system moves through the highly charged plasma region of the Local Interstellar Cloud, and as the collective consciousness of humanity undergoes a spiritual awakening, many individuals may experience a range of ascension symptoms. These symptoms can manifest on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels, and can often be misunderstood or misdiagnosed if one is not aware of the ascension process.

Some common ascension symptoms include:

  1. Physical Symptoms:
    • Fatigue and sleep disturbances
    • Heightened sensitivity to light, sound, and other sensory stimuli
    • Fluctuations in appetite and dietary preferences
    • Unusual alergies, aches, pains, or sensations in the body
    • Increased occurrences of headaches or migraines
    • Irregular heartbeat, palpitations, or atrial fibrillation
  2. Emotional Symptoms:
    • Intense mood swings and heightened emotional sensitivity
    • Feelings of anxiety, depression, or emotional overwhelm
    • Sudden waves of joy, bliss, or unconditional love
    • Increased empathy and compassion for others
    • A sense of detachment or disconnection from the material world
  3. Spiritual Symptoms:
    • Heightened intuition and psychic abilities
    • Vivid dreams, visions, or synchronicities
    • A deep longing for purpose and meaning
    • A sense of unity and interconnectedness with all life
    • Spontaneous insights and downloads of spiritual wisdom

Often, these symptoms are the ways the nervous system is trying to compensate for the increase of energy, as it adapts to the higher frequency. Many people also report a sense that time is speeding up, a phenomenon that has been the subject of various research studies.

It’s important to remember that everyone’s ascension journey is unique, and not all individuals will experience these symptoms in the same way or to the same degree. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s crucial to practice self-care, listen to your body’s needs, and seek support from a medical practitioner, like-minded individuals or spiritual mentors.

My Personal Journey

When I first learned about the connection between solar activity and heart health, I was both fascinated and concerned. My father died of a massive stroke and high blood pressure runs recurrently in my family. As someone who has always been passionate about heart-centered living and helping others optimize their well-being, I knew I had to delve deeper into this topic.

After resarching this phenomena as much as I could, I began incorporating grounding techniques and heart-centered meditation into my daily routine, focusing on cultivating feelings of love, compassion, and gratitude. To my amazement, I noticed a significant shift in my own resilience and overall well-being. Even during times of intense solar activity, I felt more centered, balanced, and connected to my heart’s wisdom.

Last week, for example, as I was sitting at my computer quietly writing, I noticed my heart began to beat uncontrollably fast. As this happened, I didn’t panic. Instead, I simply observed and breathed into my heart. After the event, I went online to look at solar activity. Sure enough, at that exact same time, the first of six solar storms had just hit the earth’s magnetosphere! This personal experience inspired me to share these powerful tools with my clients and readers, empowering them to safeguard their heart health and thrive amidst the cosmic influences.
