The earth is surrounded by air, and the ionosphere, and it is a wonderfully resonant system. Any energy trapped within this earth-ionosphere cavity, like lightning storms, etc., will cause it to ring like a bell. This frequency was first time calculated and detected by the German physicist Schumann in 1952. He mathematically predicted that the most predominant standing wave resonates around 7.8 Hz. The amazing fact is that this frequency is identical to the Alpha spectrum of human brain waves.

When a person is meditating, praying or deeply relaxed his brain resonates within Alpha and Theta rhythms range of 4-8 Hz. During this relaxed state of mind, waves of Alpha and Theta frequencies cascade across our entire brain, making it possible for the human being and our dear planet Earth to come into resonance. Was this the vibration that ancient sages of India called AUM (Om), the sacred sound of creation? Or perhaps the original Sound of God that was mentioned in Bible? The scientists believe that these waves help regulate our bodies' internal clock, improve sleep patterns, and hormonal secretion.

Schumann Resonance and Healers

For a decade, Dr Robert Beck from US researched the brain wave activity of healers from various backgrounds. He examined Christian healers, shamans, dowsers, Wicca practitioners, etc. and each exhibited ‘nearly identical EEG signatures’ during healing of a 7.8-8Hz brainwave activity. It appears that the basic earth’s frequency of 7.8Hz can enhance growth, improve immune responses, and generally re-balance the human body.

Schumann Resonance and Spiritual Practices

Various spiritual practices and spiritual_paths and rituals are designed to allow this magic meditative Alpha range to rain. Bells ringing, shamanic drumming, mantra_chanting, trance dance, meditation, various salutations to God, healing dances, Christian singing, bolster the human brain’s ancient harmonization with the planetary field. Entrainment happens when vibrations of one object cause the vibrations of another object to oscillate at the same rate. Our brain waves are prone to this synchronization, and external rhythms have a direct effect on our mood, thoughts, emotions and re-action.

Alpha to Delta Brainwaves

Alpha waves (7-13 cycles per second) are present during dreaming, deep relaxation, and meditation. Scientists claim that in Alpha, we are more open to the wealth of creativity, we feel happier, regenerated, and in tune. C.M. Anderson, M.D. (1998) of Harvard links a persistent internally generated sound of ‘humming insects’ that many people experience within Churches or Temples, during meditation or during deep intense experiences, to the Alpha 10Hz rhythm. Indian Yogis, gurus and sages associate this sound to deep meditation and Samadhi experiences.

Just to give you an idea of other frequencies, Delta waves are the slowest but highest in amplitude (between 0-4 Hz) and Theta waves (4-7 cycles per second) are abundant in deep dreamless sleep and in the deep meditation. Theta has also been identified as the gateway to learning and memory, it is the slow activity often connected with creativity, intuition, trance, and unconsciousness. It is the state of mind where we focus inwardly experiencing contemplation and silence.

Beta is a 'fast' activity, present when we are alert while Gamma relates to integrated thoughts, information rich task processing.

Schumann Resonance Yin and Yang of Creation

Mankind developed with two subtle environmental signals, the Chinese call them Yin and Yang.

Brain and Frequency

Our brain dances among these important rhythms changing its functions every 1 to 2 hours, Yogis and Scientists observe this through: the dominant nostril exchange, the exchange of the Ida and Pingala energy flow, right vs. left brain functions...

Binaural Beats

See about this in

My personal experience is that all these frequencies don't really have any effectiveness in work. I've played with binaural beats for some time.
