Largest Solar Storm of Cycle 24 - Will Another Quake Follow?
7 April 2010 - by Mitch Battros - Earth Changes Media
The most powerful geomagnetic storm since December 2006 struck the Earth on Monday. The solar storm prompted NOAA to issue a Space Weather Advisory on Monday ordering all personnel on the space shuttle and International Space Station to take cover in specially designed compartment shields.
Charged particles come in the form of galactic cosmic rays, gamma rays, solar flares, and CME's. The Kp Index measures from 1 (mild) to 9 (severe). Monday's hit measured 7.
On 3 April, the SOHO spacecraft spotted a cloud of charged particles called a coronal mass ejection (CME) shooting from the Sun at 500 kilometers per second. This velocity suggested the front would reach Earth in roughly three days.
Equation: Charged Particles => Magnetic Field Shift => Shifting Ocean and Jet Stream Currents => Extreme Weather and Human Disruption (mitch battros).
A sharp gust of solar wind hit Earth's magnetosphere on Monday, April 5th, at approximately 0800 UT and sparked the strongest geomagnetic storm of the year.
"It hit earlier and harder than forecast," says Doug Biesecker of the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Space Weather Prediction Center in Boulder, Colorado.
Mitch Battros Research on Sun-Earth Connection and 2012
Just as the Sun's solar activity affects the Earth's magnetic field which has a dramatic affect on Earth's weather i.e. earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, hurricanes; so does this wave of electrical currents affect the human body's magnetic field. Mitch also reveals a little-known development from modern medicine known as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). TMS provides empirical evidence of how magnetic fields can influence human emotions.
Solar Cycle 24 has begun - and it has been predicted by NASA, NOAA and ESA to be up to 50% stronger than its 'record breaking' predecessor Cycle 23 which produced the largest solar flare ever recorded. The Sun will reach its 'apex' (maximum) in late 2011 into 2012.
"I believe it will be the magnetic influence produced by the Sun which will usher in what is described by our ancient ancestors as "the transition" bringing us to a new state-of-being". (Mitch Battros)

7.8 Mag. Quake Hits Sumatra - Tsunami Warning Cancelled
by Mitch Battros - Earth Changes Media
A tsunami alert has been lifted after an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 hit the Indonesian island of Sumatra. The quake's epicenter was 204km (127 miles) northwest of Sibolga on Sumatra's coast, at a depth of nearly 48km, the US Geological Survey said.
Three aftershocks were reported in the northern province of Aceh, but there were no reports of casualties. Indonesia sits on the Pacific Ring of Fire, one of the world's most active areas for earthquakes and volcanoes.
Magnitude 7.2 - BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO

|Depth||10 km (6.2 miles) set by location program|
|Region||BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO|
Although yesterday's 7.2 mag. at Baja grabbed millions of people's attention from Mexico to Los Angeles to Phoenix, I would suggest the heightened potential for danger lies just ahead. When both modern science and ancient text point in the same direction and in the same time period, I sit straight up and pay very close attention.
This is the case for the latest shower of large quakes and volcanic activity. I would suggest the most dangerous areas in the world regarding natural disasters within the next two weeks or perhaps the next two years, is the Cascadia Subduction Zone and the Puerto Rico Trench. Mayan prophecy has predicted such, and current geo-science trends suggest such.
The Cascadia Subduction Zone which runs from Northern California - through Oregon, Washington and up the Canadian coast to Alaska (see graph below). The second area of greatest danger which was stated just a few months ago by Mayan elders is lower Mexico, Central America, and Caribbean.
Cascadia Subduction Zone
Although it is not specifically mentioned by the elders, recent geo-scientific trends indicate the Puerto Rico area which most people would include as part of the eastern Caribbean, is the most likely place for a large or mega quake to occur. It is an area known as the Puerto Rico Trench. It is also called the Puerto Rico Subduction Zone. It will not be the quake which is the killer; it will be the tsunami which follows.
Puerto Rico Subduction Zone
Modern Science Confirms Ancient Prophecy
A dozen major earthquakes of magnitude 7.0 or greater have occurred in the Caribbean near Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the island of Hispaniola, shared by Haiti and the Dominican Republic, in the past 500 years, and several have generated tsunamis. The most recent major earthquake, a magnitude 8.1 in 1946, resulted in a tsunami that killed a reported 1,600 people.
With nearly twenty million people now living in this tourist region and a major earthquake occurring on average every 50 years, scientists say it is not a question of if it will happen but when. They are calling for the establishment of tsunami early warning systems in the Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean, and better public education about the real tsunami threats in these regions.
The Puerto Rico Trench, which is capable of producing mega-quakes of magnitude 8 or greater, faces north and east into the Atlantic Ocean. There are few land areas or islands to block a tsunami generated near the Puerto Rico Trench from entering the Atlantic Ocean. The United States East Coast has a high risk of suffering a direct hit from a tsunami 'surge' or 10 story foot waves.
SAN DIEGO - Four earthquakes in the Gulf of California, off the coast of Baja, shook much of Mexico Monday. The strongest quake was felt all the way to San Diego.
A magnitude 6.9 earthquake hit near Santa Isabel, Baja California, Mexico at 11:00 Monday morning. Just five minutes earlier a 5.8 magnitude earthquake was felt in the same general area. Two others followed about a half hour later.
The epicenter of the strongest quake was 354 miles southeast of Tijuana. The 5.8 magnitude quake was centered 328 miles southeast of Tijuana....
The quakes were all centered in the middle of the narrow slice of sea between the Baja peninsula and Mexico's mainland, which should help cut down on its chances of causing major damage, said Don Blakeman, an analyst at the U.S. National Earthquake Information Center.
"It's going to be felt extremely widely and it's possible there may be some damage but there's no way to speculate at this point," Blakeman said.
San Diego Geologist Pat Abbott says these quakes were centered on a fault that sits on the same plate edge as the infamous San Andreas. "When one part of the edge moves, that definitely effects others. It's inching us closer to our big earthquake," says Abbott.
Experts agree that when you look at California as a whole, the next place a big earthquake is expected, is along the southern San Andreas and Abbott says theres no question, it will rock San Diego. "We can tell you the size, it will be like 7.7 or 7.5. We know it is coming, we know where it will hit, we just can't tell you when, " says Abbott.

Baja earthquake: 'Power lines were crashing against buildings'
Sunday, April 4, 2010
The Baja earthquake centered 22 miles from the border town of Mexicali, Mexico, knocked buildings off their foundations and closed a busy US-Mexico port of entry Sunday.
A storefront in Calexico, Calif., had its windows broken by the powerful 7.2-magnitude Baja earthquake that rocked northern Baja California, Mexico, on Easter Sunday.
The 7.2-magnitude Baja earthquake that struck northern Baja California Sunday afternoon, 20 miles from the Arizona-California border, was felt as far away as Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Phoenix.
In the desert cities of the region on both sides of the US-Mexico border, the 3:40 p.m. quake knocked buildings off foundations; threw chunks of facades into the streets; and shut down electric, Internet, and cellphone services. Furniture inside homes and businesses was upended. More than 30 aftershocks rattled the area as of 8:30 p.m., sending people into protective crouches or running outdoors.
The earthquake's epicenter was in Guadalupe Victoria, Mexico, 22 miles from the sprawling Baja state capital of Mexicali.
There have been no reports of any major injuries in California's Imperial County, which borders Mexico, says Maria Carrillo, a county spokeswoman.

Earthquake hits Mexico and shakes Los Angeles
A strong 7.2 magnitude earthquake has struck Baja California in Mexico, rocking buildings and panicking residents as far away as Palm Springs and downtown Los Angeles.
Mexican officials had no immediate reports of damage or injuries.
But witnesses north of the Mexican border said they had been left shocked by the effects of the earthquake.
"I'm shaking like a leaf ... the pool water was just going everywhere," said Jean Nelson in Indio, California, outside of Palm Springs.
A witness in Tijuana told reuters cars in a car park could be seen jolting with the quake.
The quake was felt for about 40 seconds in Tijuana, Mexico, causing buildings to sway and knocking out power in parts of the city. Families celebrating Easter ran out of their homes, with children screaming and crying.
Baja California state Civil Protection Director Alfredo Escobedo said there were no immediate reports of injuries or major damage. But he said the assessment was ongoing.
The quake was felt in downtown Los Angeles, witnesses said. It rattled buildings on the west side and in the San Fernando Valley.
Los Angeles fire department officials have gone on earthquake status and were last night inspecting buildings and overpasses for damage. According to some radio dispatches and local television elevators were stuck in some buildings, including the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim.
"LAFD has all resources on radio watch and checking their district to ensure safety for all citizens," the department said.
"Firefighters from your 106 neighborhood fire stations are providing a complete survey of 470 square miles in the greater Los Angeles area and are examining transportation infrastructures, large places of assemblage (Dodger Stadium, universities) apartment buildings, power lines, etc, from the ground and the air to ensure safety."
The quake struck at 15:40 Pacific time, 16 miles south-west of Guadalupe Victoria at a depth of 20 miles. The quake was 108 miles south-east of Tijuana...
Multiple aftershocks were reported....

Note from Drumvalo regarding channelled information
And further, all channels, real or not, are extremely dangerous to follow because no one knows for sure who is really speaking. It takes time to know who is really speaking. Just because he says it is Lord Metatron does not mean that is who is speaking.
A channel opens themselves to the universe, which anyone, including you, can do, and it is like making a random phone call to anyone on Earth. The person who answers may tell you the truth of their real name or they may go along with you and say they are who you are asking for. And then, why would they know any more about a certain subject than anyone else? It is a real problem in the channeling world, and it is therefore extremely dangerous to believe them or to use their information.
Yes there are a few very important channels on Earth... but you still have to be very, very careful before you accept something as true.
There was a small group from the Pleiades who entered our consciousness back in the 1980's. They first contacted Billy Meyers and then several other channels. Everyone thought at first they were on our side. But then it became obvious to many that they were not. They had banded with the Greys and the Reptiles, and their sole purpose was to eliminate the human race. And you have to understand, these beings are vastly more intelligent than a human being and can appear in any manner that they want you to see them. Your belief in them means absolutely nothing.
And it is interesting that the method this Pleiadian group was using to separate humanity is almost identical to what is being used with James Tyberonn. They would go on and on about a subject and 99.9% of it was the truth. Almost anyone reading their statements would believe that it was the truth. They would continue with the truth until the heart of the audience is wide open, and then a deception would secretly take place. In the middle of a paragraph they would insert something that is definitely not true, but since you were agreeing with them on everything up to that moment, the human being simply allows it into the mind as true, even though it is not. To be clear, the purpose of doing this was to divide humanity so they could conquer.
If you want to believe James Tyberonn then that is your right, but I would suggest you stop listening to channels, and learn how to enter into your own heart. All knowledge and wisdom is contained there, and it will never be a lie or deception. It will always be the TRUTH. Trust yourself, and believe in yourself. Find the Sacred Space of your own heart, and you will not need anyone but yourself and the Source of All Life Everywhere that lives, and has always lived, within your heart.
From my heart,

Earth Changes Update: Mother Earth (Gaia) through Pepper Lewis
Note from Pepper Lewis: It feels to most of us that earth changes are increasing in both frequency and magnitude, and yet Gaia says that they are not. She tells us that our interest in 2012 related change has made it seem that way, and that our newer technologies allow many more of us to share similar thoughts at similar times. Gaia goes on to say that this will begin to work in our favor as soon as we align with the kinds of things we want to change instead of the change we think is affecting our kind. I know you join me in wishing you could do more for earthquake displaced family, friends and loved ones, and in wanting to know more about what may be around the next bend. With Gaia’s help we were able to quickly arrange a small round-table to explore this subject in-depth and to broadcast it in several different languages around the world. At the same time, Gaia was clear with us in that we were not to expect a channeled response or explanation following every movement, large or small. She was quick to remind me that my role as a channel is not that of a news reporter, nor is Gaia a public service announcement. That being said, every question posed received adequate and expansive answers. Those who have been significantly affected by recent events submitted the questions included below. ~ Pepper Lewis
The earth is always changing – day to night and night to day, with each new change ushering in the next. Long ago on a very fine day, the earth had changed enough that it could support and welcome human life upon it. Now, as it continues to evolve, the earth will be able to support humanity’s expanding future, which includes much more than a need to simply survive. As you well know, life can be lived or it can be L-I-V-E-D. Now that you have tried it one way, why not try it a new way? In order to do that, you will need to change along with the earth – adding and subtracting here, multiplying and dividing there until you arrive at the right formula. That is what this time is about and there is nothing wrong with the earth or with you.
Change has always been rather difficult for humanity, you call for it in other people, places and things, yet reject in yourselves until it is no longer a choice, after which you proclaim that you are not free to choose. Perhaps you will see the humor in this. The changes that are taking place now should not be surprising to you, and you have known about them in this life and in others, too. The subject of earth related changes has been discussed, theorized, evaluated, prophesied, scientifically explained and more. Now, as you begin to adapt and adjust, you will see that you are suited to live in a variety of different ways and under different conditions. It is time to acclimatize (literally) to new and changing thoughts, environments and more. The next few years will introduce new concepts and techniques into several areas of life. These will include new ways to relate to ordinary and extraordinary situations and events. Natural telepathic abilities that have been latent and dormant in man will reemerge in the younger generations and in those that choose to participate. The transition may require a radically different way to think, and a small percentage of the present population will advocate against it. Change does not always look like evolution and evolutions sometimes looks too much like change.
Humanity requires new resources with which to build the cities that are even now being conceived of. Those who presently control and allocate resources do not do so evenly, fairly or with thoughts toward a future that is unfolding different than the past. If things were to remain the same, the earth could not feed its hungry or sustain its thirsty, therefore the earth must shift its ability to make resources available, which is to say that it will also relocate some of these elsewhere. Although this is in accordance with the laws and principles of planets that sustain a variety of forms of life, it can sometimes also appear as upheaval on the part of the host. While an apology on the part of the earth that is compassionately working on your behalf is not entirely in order, please know that I am careful, concerned and deliberate in my movements.
Can fearful thoughts about earthquakes and other natural disasters actually attract them, or is the timing of these events based only upon natural phenomena?
Fearful thoughts about people, places, things or events will not bring them physically closer to you. That being said, fear is not a natural repellant, either. Fear is like an energetic bookmark. Every time a thought or an event in your life is triggered by a fear, your awareness will turn to that page so you can read what you recorded there the last time you visited that place (or life). Once you have re-read or re-experienced it, you can agree or disagree with it, keep it as is, rerecord it or discard it. You do this every time you have strong opinions or judgments about yourself and others too. This is one of the ways you change and evolve – by choosing how you feel
Is it possible that the recent increase in earth changes, namely earthquakes, is due to abusive or ignorant practices on the part of humanity?
No and yes. To be clear and specific, there is no real or incremental increase in earth change activity when measured over an appropriate cycle of time. The earth is a relatively small celestial body with a comparatively short history, but it is still much larger and much older than humanity’s existence upon the earth. Only in the last eighty years or so has humanity been able to register and record earthquake activity with relative precision. Records prior to this time are limited, they present vivid and detailed depictions, but with less accuracy. Like you, the earth has many moving parts. And like you, they are moving most of the time.
Earthquakes are primarily caused by bursts of energy in the earth’s crust that create seismic waves. These are natural and normal for the earth and have always been so. Periods of solar intensity, which are also natural in origin, can cause temporary increases in the frequency and magnitude of earthquakes. These periods are known to occur near the beginning and end of great precessional cycles, this being one such time. Like a woman’s labor, seismic activity can also be induced. For instance, the construction of large dams may contribute to an increase in seismic activity. The same is true of certain large buildings (depending upon the profundity and anchoring of their foundation) and certain earth injection techniques in use during modern well drilling. Coal mining and oil drilling also have correlating factors that can be attributed to certain movements. The earth’s resources are obtainable by many means and it is well that humanity consumes them. It is also important to restore environments so they can continue to supply humanity’s voracious appetite, particularly those that are essential to both earth and humanity.
It is well-known throughout the world now, that many practices do not benefit the health or well-being of the earth; it’s kingdoms and elements, or humanity. Awareness of these practices will continue to raise concerns and eventually humanity will turn its hunger elsewhere. A few recent quakes have been influenced by ignorance and abuse, but the quakes would have occurred just the same. Even if the magnitude of these had been less, it would not have been by a significant margin and the destruction would have been almost the same. Although humanity is not yet able to predict earthquakes, it is not impossible to determine some of the more likely places they may transpire.
What does Gaia feel during an earthquake?
This is an area in which we differ quite a bit. To begin with, Gaia/the earth, does not feel fear or pain, not in the grand scheme. What do you feel when you allow stress to roll off your shoulder during a stretch? What do you feel when you shrug, or curl your toes, or crack your knuckles? Are you consciously aware of what is taking place within your body, or do you simply feel better as the result of a semi-intentional movement? You have a dynamic relationship with your body and so do I. Our bodies know what we need and how to get it, which brings me to another fundamental difference between us – the earth responds to all things including movement in accordance with the laws and principles of nature, which means that it does not forestall or avoid an event. It is common for humanity to delay a distasteful chore, to avert its eyes from an unpleasant situation, and to be less than forthcoming when communication becomes difficult. While this is not natural, it is part of humanity’s natural process of evolution. Although the earth’s movements are natural, my sentience understands that humanity is displaced and distressed by them. Earthquakes are not natural disasters as much as they are human disasters. In time, humanity will learn to predict earthquakes, to build in ways that can accommodate them, and to adjust to them.
Can we do anything to prevent earthquakes happening near large cities or densely populated areas? Are there safer places to be?
Population is of no consequence where plate tectonics and fault lines are concerned. Earthquakes are not attracted to large or small cities. They do not discriminate between land and sea. Seismic waves balance, shift, move, and redesign the earth. They release stress and pressure, and resource the earth’s surface for generations to come. Seismic events are an important part of the geology and structure of the earth, without these the earth would die. I have not asked humanity to build its cities here but not there, even when it would be in its own best interest to do so. The earth does not censure or punish the decisions of builders and dwellers, in fact I place the very best materials at your disposal and offer them with a blessing and a caution -- a time may come when buildings will sway. Build well and prepare even better!
It is safer to be in mountainous areas with solid rock such as granite beneath you rather than soft soil. It is best to be in cities and communities where newer buildings have been well constructed. It is better to be near natural waterways rather than ones that have been dammed as these oppose the force of nature. It is important to know the lay of the land, which means to understand the currents of energy and in what direction they flow best. Whenever possible, it would be better to be above sea level by whatever factor of land is available or affordable.
Why do people loot, steal and commit other crimes following large-scale events such as earthquakes?
That is a good question. Looting, sacking, pillaging, despoiling and every other form of taking goods by force has played a role in humanity’s history for a long time. Cities and villages have been plundered by the victorious for as long as humanity has felt threatened by the presence and practices of others. Piracy is another form of looting, be it on the high seas or on the waves of technology. Even among the modern and the civilized, theft and embezzlement is a form of capturing or plundering assets, both public and private. The corrupt and the greedy do not require a natural disaster for inspiration. Interestingly, these more civilized approaches do not seem to affect humanity as much as the sight of a man making off with a sack of rice, a case of water, or a television. Why? Because these barbaric customs represent humanity’s basic nature – an inherent fear that life is fragile, unfair and unstable. They reveal a belief in lack and an uneasy anxiety born of panic and fright.
During natural disasters, people sometimes lose self-control. They forget their “right mind” and lose themselves within a minefield that thinks only of survival, even if their survival is not actually being threatened. A very small percentage of people actually succumb to these actions, but many more than you might imagine do at least think about them. Certain regions of the human brain are still wild, and when these are triggered even the impossible becomes fathomable. Most looters are ordinary citizens; they are not criminals or street thugs and often think of themselves as heroes and champions of the needy. Sooner or later order will return to their mind and to the streets.
Were the earthquakes in Haiti and Chile related to one another?
They are both in active areas where several lines of energy meet and/or cross paths. The earthquake in Haiti did not trigger the one in Chile; they are unrelated in this respect. The earthquake in Haiti began its journey elsewhere, but erupted there as many elements that are also associated with timelines and probabilities are drawn to this area. The earthquake in Chile was centered there. The panoramic and powerful Andes were formed by some of the most powerful earthquakes ever, which took place long before your written language and instruments could record them. Interestingly, the events (they took place in eight successive thrusts) were observed and recorded by beings much like yourselves who resided on Mars at the time. If this seems strange to you, remember how your own telescopes were able to observe the impacts on Jupiter just a few short years ago. You are a family of earth-dwellers, but you form part of a larger galactic family too, and so do others who do not dwell upon Earth.
Some people have reported changes in eating habits, sleep behaviors and more following earthquakes. Are these related?
There are very few things that are as unsettling to humanity as natural disasters. From a human standpoint, the ground beneath you should be solid and your environment secure. While this is true most of the time, sometimes it is not. Earthquakes can be life-altering events and the physical destruction they leave in their wake is the least of it for those who are sensitive in these areas. Buildings can be rebuilt and belongings refurbished, but human nerves are more delicate; the path and process they take on the way to wellness is often individual and unique Restoring and regaining the trust of your central nervous system requires patience and personal attention.
A physical earthquake may last from a few seconds to a few minutes, but its aftermath can last much longer. It is not uncommon for the physical and emotional effects of an earthquake to last approximately two years. In rare instances it can last a lifetime, and in even more rare, but not unheard of cases, it can take more than one lifetime to heal. This is particularly true if there is an over-attachment to one’s physical belongings, position in life, or relationships.
The most common after effects associated with natural disasters (in no particular order) are: excessive fear of darkness, separation and/or being alone, worry, anxiety, nervousness, depression, clinging to loved ones and/or belongings, aggressive behavior toward strangers, timidity, immature or child-like behavior, changes in eating and sleeping patterns, persistent nightmares, headaches, stomachaches and other physical complaints, irritability, anger, increased stress, sadness, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, hyperactivity, and lack of concentration.
Generally, these normal reactions will not persist longer than a few weeks to a few months, but it is not uncommon for them to last longer. Some feelings or responses may not appear for weeks or even months after an event. Many who appear to be cope with disproportionate calm following a high magnitude event might suddenly regress over a small aftershock several months later. Delayed feelings and expressions are sometimes also accompanied by specific resentments toward both earth and heaven.
Whenever possible and to accelerate the healing process, it is helpful to be near loved ones. Touch and hold each other often, but respect the need to be alone if it is requested. Take frequent breaks from the recovery and rebuilding process, pay attention to health, diet and sleep, and if necessary, mourn or grieve. It may take time to feel safe in your world again.
Can you shed more light on rumors that the earth’s axis has shifted?
The earth’s axis is constantly shifting by minute amounts that are for the most part, imperceptible to humanity. Large-scale natural disasters can and do affect the wobble of the earth’s axis, and even small-scale disasters can have an impact in this regard. Events of this magnitude can be catastrophic to humanity; they can move countries, continents and more. The earth has experienced several pole reversals that have wreaked havoc upon the earth and reset the clock, so to speak. Please note, however, that the largest earthquakes on record are still small-scale events to a celestial body such as the earth. In terms of the earth’s axis, you have been taught to imagine a line (or plane) that intersects the earth from the north to the south pole, balancing the earth on an invisible point like a child’s spinning top.
While useful, this illustration is not completely accurate. Why? Because it is a little like imagining a balloon balancing on the head of a pin – one little pivot this way or that and kaboom! The earth’s axis is not so fragile and neither is that of the other planets. The earth does pivot and move and shift, but it rests upon something that looks like an energetic pillow that is both strong and spongy, and very resilient. This invisible layer of elasticity acts like a shock absorber and allows the earth to pivot and wobble without losing or reversing its polarity. The length of an earth day is also quite relative with some being shorter or longer than others. The length of each day is actually determined by the relationship that the earth has with the sun at any given moment. This relationship is responsible for at least some of the changes the earth is currently undergoing and for others that are still to come.
Can you shed more light on rumors that the earth’s axis has shifted?
Earthquakes rarely arrive without warning, but humanity’s instrumentation is not yet sophisticated enough to see or hear them. To be precise, an earthquake is what happens during and after an actual seismic event. In other words, an earthquake is what happens at on the surface of the earth, and specifically to humanity. Seismic events include natural phenomena such as a rupture in geological faults, volcanic activity and landslides. They can also be generated by mine blasts, drilling and even nuclear detonations. The epicenter of an earthquake, whether natural or manmade, is the point at ground level, just above where the seismic energy is first released, also called ground zero. Stored energy is released from rock at the hypocenter, the point where the fault begins to rupture. Energy is released in waves, and these fall into different categories. Physics is a science that understands and studies wave phenomena, but not yet with the certainty and subtlety that is required.
The earth may seem quite solid to you, but it is actually very elastic. Seismic waves have different characteristics and as their force moves through the earth it leaves behind certain signatures. There are many types of seismic waves, but the most notable are Primary or P-waves, which can travel through anything and Secondary or S-waves, which can travel through solids, but not through liquids or gases. Other seismic waves worth mentioning are body waves, which travel through the interior or body of earth following specific paths in accordance with the density of the earth’s interior, and surface waves, which travel more slowly than body waves, upon the surface of the earth as the name implies. Due to their low frequency and long duration, surface waves are most destructive where humanity is concerned. Surface waves can be further subdivided into categories of ground roll, ripples, shearing and more. Low frequency Rayleigh waves, are as yet inaudible by humans, but easily detected by birds and both marine and earth mammals. These slow moving and long lasting waves are detectable over long distances and for long periods of time. Domestic animals are attuned to these and other ground vibrations. They are good predictors of earthquakes too.
The importance of this expanded answer is that inherent within the science of seismology is the language of seismology. The earth is speaking to you and warning you that change is imminent. Currently, your instruments record this data after the fact, because they are not sensitive enough to hear the earth speaking before then. In the near future your technological devices will be more sensitive and precise, and your intuitive hearing will be more discriminating than it is now. Within a short span of years you will be more attuned to the language of nature and you will be able to predict the location and timing of earthquakes with relative accuracy. In time science will have access to better instruments and these will lengthen the predictive cycle to approximately six weeks before major earthquakes and four weeks before those of lesser magnitude.
Tectonic (natural) earthquakes can occur anywhere within the earth where enough strain has accumulated, even in areas that seem less likely given past historic models. Sometimes, and without your knowing it, fault plates slide smoothly past one another aseismically (without friction), avoiding an earthquake altogether. On the other hand, even a smooth glass surface can have just the wrong amount of asperity (roughness) and cause a jolt or too. These moments are difficult to predict and our communication is not yet so highly attuned that these could be communicated to you. I communicate with humanity in a variety of ways, only one of these being high and low frequency waves of specific origin and properties. Please understand that there are many ways to talk with one another, the least accurate of these being verbal.
Can you give us an overview of upcoming earth changes and events that could impact humanity?
The first half of the year will record earthquakes and other movements that wash soil away from their normal path and to other directions. Waterways under the earth are being diverted and rerouted as well, in order to be of better service to humanity later on. These movements will place greater strain on certain portions of the ocean floor, but will relieve pressure in other areas, particularly where land mass (continents) are great and mighty. Underground water of all types will be affected and even simple wells may experience a shift in level or mineral composition. You are accustomed to water levels that rise and fall, but in this case they may be sliding sideways above and beneath the surface.
Most of the quakes will be offshore and deep enough that they will not disturb the surface populations, but as you have already seen that is not always the case. Areas to watch in North America include the Alaskan coastline, the waters west of the Pacific Northwest including Oregon and Washington, and the southern section of California as it dips into Mexico. In South America, Chile is still not stable and may experience one or more large spikes that will be strong but not as long lasting as the initial quake. Peru is another country that must keep watch at this time. Strong indicators of quakes will persist in Indonesia, particularly where island nations are also host to many volcanoes. The second half of the year will include at least one major volcanic eruption in the northern hemisphere and another in the southern hemisphere. Thousands of miles apart from each other, the two eruptions will be related.
What specific message could you offer those who become displaced due to earthquakes and other natural disasters?
During the day, dare. At night, dream. Live, love and listen to one another. Give generosity and gentleness to others. Celebrate, cultivate and contemplate each moment. Have humility, honesty and sincerity, Rebuild, renew and restore. Breathe, balance, and believe again.
