I have noticed a lot of coworkers and friends getting sick or really tired in the last few weeks. Me too! I find yoga and energy healing helps me. I think there are some energy changes going on that are affecting people as we shift towards 2012. When makes this week's 20212 Mayan calendar initiation and dance timely! If you have been feeling very tired or sick will you let me know and tell me what has worked for you?

On a more scienctific basis increase in solar weather has knocked out cell phone networks and power grids in past and is getting worse. Long article with some interesting material in it including the part about times of total earth magnetic field collapse below. Perhaps this is related to why folks are getting sick - EMF affect people and their immune system...

Well cosmic rays are at an all-time high but even in the solar minimum the number of cosmic rays was also high. We're getting these new records all the time now. In March, 2010 the International Space Agency said there are now times when the earth has no magnetic field. They talked about how the solar wind used to act as a "bullet-proof vest" stopping galactic cosmic rays coming in. Now they're talking about the earth's atmosphere acting as a bullet-proof vest. That's a huge difference. There are now times when the earth's magnetic field literally collapses and it doesn't exist.

When I read this I couldn't believe it. There was no major announcement, I picked this up about four weeks later and found it by accident, just something on their website. This is major news but people don't appreciate it. There was a major announcement that the solar wind was flagging; what NASA have been doing is putting announcements out like two weeks before Christmas, at times when not many people are going to be reading. I actually specifically look now at these times because I know that they're sneaking out these announcements. By law they need to inform people but they don't really want you to know, so they put these announcements out at times when people are busy and not paying attention.

Solar Storms Could Debilitate Earth this Decade: NOAA

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, a federal agency that focuses on the condition of the oceans and atmosphere, said that a severe solar storm could cause global chaos, debilitating satellite communications and taking down the most important global power grids. 


threaten the planet this decade. Similarly, NASA warned that a peak in the sun's magnetic energy cycle and the number of sun spots or flares around 2013 could enable extremely high radiation levels.

Government studies revealed that extreme solar flare emissions could cause blackouts, possibly for years, in large portions of the U.S.

This type of storm could also induce geomagnetic currents that could debilitate transformers on the power grid. Electric power would be out for years or even decades. 

Nuclear plants would also be negatively affected as supplying power systems with enough fuel despite main power grids being offline for years would be a grave problem. Furthermore, spent fuel rods losing connection to the power grid could cause pools to boil over, fueling fires and releasing deadly radiation. 

A report by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory said that over the standard 40-year license term of nuclear power plants, solar flare activity enables a 33 percent chance of long-term power loss, a risk that significantly outweighs that of major earthquakes and tsunamis.
