Solar Winds



Have you noticed a change in your emotions over the last couple of days? Do you feel like you're about to go over the deep end? Maybe you are battling with others? Sad, feeling depressed? Or maybe you've had a burst of positive well being or energy?


Well, blame it on the solar winds! The sun had a major flare on the 15th, and the effects most certainly have an effect on our bodies and emotions. After all, we are electromagnetic beings. From Reuters:


Solar flares are intense, short-lived releases of energy. They show up as bright areas on the sun, producing high levels of radiation and charged particles that can intensify solar winds -- electrically charged particles continuously spewing outward from the sun. The Earth's magnetic field largely protects the planet from space weather. But massive solar flares can disrupt power grids, interfere with high-frequency airline and military communications, disrupt Global Positioning System signals and interrupt civilian communications, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which tracks solar flares.


So why wouldn't they effect us? We know the electromagnetic fields that protect earth are weakening. So doesn't it stand to reason that they just might have an affect on a human being?


P.S. A good example of this? I have absolutely no idea why part of this post is in tiny font! What's more? I cannot fix it!

I've experienced both lows and highs over the last couple of day. And all sort of internet problems. Nice to know I can blame it on the sun.

Love the font issue Nancy!! Love it.. we have been inn the twight zone here on Oahu.. VOG... its been awful!

Nancy said...

Hilary - So have I - which sent me off to see if there was something happening in the atmosphere - sure enough!

leilani - I really dislike VOG. Ugh!

Natalie said...

They are surely affecting some people.
A friend wants to put her dog down because she can't handle him. I have offered to have him and got shot down in flames on FB for wanting to take someone's dog away?????WTF????
Since when has animal love been evil?
UV poisoning in Australian atmosphere.?

Brian Miller said...

yeah i can feel this...from what i understand it is supposed to be more frequent in the coming days...

Bruce Coltin said...

Fine. I am going to plan on being positively charged today. I will let you know if it works out.

ellen abbott said...

i have not felt at odds. in fact, several good things happened but I'll be on the lookout for undercurrents.

JeannetteLS said...

And I thought it was my natural high that was making me glow in the dark. It would not surprise me if the flares were to have an effect on me, but now that I know about them, I really won't be able to tell. I don't mean that glibly, but I find that, in retrospect, I've been in an unexplainable mood and it's turned out to be a full moon or something, or I have been frenetic and it's also been an odd astrological time. But I'm not sure how affected I truly am. I'm as likely to use it as an excuse, which is not a good plan for me!

That said, when I worked for a facility for people with different sorts of disabilities, there was no question that you knew when there was a full moon. We didn't care WHAT experts said. So this all makes sense. We should all check in on Sunday and see how it went! (Dave, gin may help with the positive charging... -:) )

And someone put another person down for offering to TAKE a dog so the owner wouldn't put him down??? Well. I hope that's solar flares, frankly. Interesting entry as always

Nancy said...

Natalie - Now I know why I'm not on FB!

Brian - It has had some weird effects in my house.

Bruce - Let us know how it goes! I may attempt the same thing. Time to quit feeling sorry for myself. :-)

Ellen - Maybe you got the positive ions.

Jeanette - I could always tell with my children when there was a full moon. We are a big bag of water, so if the moon affects the tides, it stands to reason it might affect our bag.

Grandmother said...

This makes so much sense. I'm going to have my daughter read this- she's had three very emotional days and her son as well. A she's usually calm as a cucumber! She keeps saying she doesn't know why... Hope this helps explain. We really are part of it all. You have such interesting posts.

Whitney Lee said...

I was attributing it to the full moon. I try to keep my life as drama free as possible, but the last couple of days have been ridiculous.

Jen said...

I have definitely felt it the last few days. I have even had to take a NAP because I was feeling so crazy- and you KNOW how I feel about NAPS.

Nancy said...

Grandmother - We really are part of it "all."

Whitney - I know what you mean.

Jen - LOL!

Trish and Rob MacGregor said...

May it be over soon!

luksky said...

That's nice to know...and I thought my mood was just because I was about to have my monthly visitor...lol

tattytiara said...

I think round here we've been a lot more directly affected by the blistering cold we're being treated to this week.

Linda Pendleton said...

LOL, those solar winds changed your font.

I am often sensitive to weather changes, such as high pressure, earthquakes,and always feel great and alert on full moon but I've not noticed anything unusual with this solar flare which I heard we have. My only concern is it might affect our equipment--much like Mercury in retrograde. And I wouldn't like that.

So all is fine in my world, even with the rain.

Marguerite said...

It certainly has been an interesting week! And with today's full moon in Leo, on top of it! Overall, it's been energizing!

Miss Sadie said...

Haven't noticed anything different at all.

Shrinky said...

Amazingly, I found myself walking around this heavy sense of dread the other day, and nothing at all could explain it. I'm pretty level-headed and content as a rule, maybe there is something to this theory of yours!

d page said...

I the field of paranormal research, there is an apparent connection between solar storms. There is an in reported paranormal phenomena.

GYPSYWOMAN said...

no doubt about solar impact on humans, just as there is lunar impact - some of us more than others! i've often said that i could be in a locked closet and tell you when the moon is full! very neat post, nancy!

oh, and i've had computer silly stuff for days now - even with the keyboard doing stuff without my touching it!
