The Yin and Yang of the Schumann Resonance

I was watching a recent David Wilcock Wisdom Teachings episode on GaiamTv called Magnetic Resonance Technology, and was inspired to create a better Schumann Resonance audio file. David Wilcock said that for a Schumann resonance generator to be effective, it needed both the 7.83 Hz signal as well as the even lower frequency that comes from earth itself, about 0.5 Hz.

Here is a graph of the waveform I created that has both a sine wave 7.83 Hz signal, as well as a sine wave 0.5 Hz signal.

If you would like to create your own frequency files with 2 different signals inside, like the audio files above, here is how you do it. Using the Create a Frequency Set tool, I created a 200 second long Sine wave 7.83 Hz audio file. Then I created a 200 second long Sine wave 0.5 Hz audio file.

I then imported each of these audio files into 2 different tracks on Audacity. In Audacity I decreased the volume of each track by 50% (-0.6 db), selected all tracks and then mixed the tracks using the “Mix and Render” menu command.

Alternatively, to mix the two separate signal you could use sox command line tool with the following command:

sox -m 7.83Hz.flac 0.5Hz.flac Mixed.flac

Testing Your Coils

Several people have asked how to test the Alleva-Wave/Somapulse coils. I’ve given one way to test the coils in the post: Using your PEMF device, and another technique in a comment. I would like to expand on those techniques and to put the testing procedures in a single place.

Using a Gauss Meter

If you have a gauss meter, like the Gauss Master or the TriField meter, download the following zip file and place the appropriate audio file onto your music player:

Description Link
Gauss Meter Test Download (169Kb)

This audio files contain a one minute long 60 Hz square wave that can be detected by most gauss meters. If you use some of the other frequencies downloaded from this website, the frequency may be too low to be detected by the meter. For example, the Gauss Master’s lowest frequency it can detect accurately is 40 Hz. Play the Gauss Meter Test file, set your player volume to full, and then using your gauss meter to check the coils. Given that a working set of coils ought to have between 100 – 300 milligauss strength, your meter can easily determine whether your coils are working or not.

Using a Multimeter

If you have a multimeter, you can test the integrity of the coil. The following is a diagram of the Alleva-Wave/Somapulse plug found on the coils:

3.5mm-stereo-plug

 

With a multimeter, which can be purchased for under $10 at Harbor Freight Tools, test the resistance between the RING and the SLEEVE. The resistance ought be be somewhere around 2 ohms. If the resistance is zero ohm, you have a short in your coils, and the coils are bad. If the resistance is infinity, you have a break in your coils, and the coils are bad.

The resistance between the TIP and the SLEEVE, as well as the resistance between the TIP and the RING, ought to be infinity.

Using a Compass

If you have a compass, you can also test your coils. Start by downloading the following zip file and place the appropriate audio file onto your music player:

Description Link
Magnet Test Download (87Kb)

Plug the coils into the player, and play the Magnet Test audio file. Hold one of the coils perpendicular to the compass near the compass needle. The compass needle ought to deflect a little.

Getting a Better Night’s Sleep

A question came in from a reader about how to make a sleep program. I’ve put together a simple 8 hour sleep program using the Lilly wave that will take you from an awake Beta wave state down to a light sleep Theta wave state in a half hour. It will then stay in a light sleep Theta wave state for a half hour. It then moves you from a light sleep Theta wave state down to a deep sleep Delta wave state in 15 minutes. The program then keeps you in a deep sleep Delta wave state for 6.25 hours, and then moves you from a deep sleep Delta wave state to an awake Beta wave state over the course of a half hour. Here is the frequency set for this program:

14-4=1800,4=1800,4-0.5=900,0.5=22500,0.5-20=1800

Simple 8 Hour Delta Sleep

Description MP3 (.mp3) ALAC (.m4a) FLAC (.flac)
Delta Sleep Lilly Download (175Mb) Download (147Mb) Download (47Mb)

As you can see from the file sizes, the MP3 version is 175 Mbyte, and the ALAC version his 147 Mbyte, so these files will take a while to download. The FLAC version is only 46 Mbyte, so if you can use it, please do. Because these file lengths are so long, I’ve come up with another way to create an 8 hour (or longer or shorter) sleep program described in the following section.

Using a Playlist

Another way to do a sleep program is to make smaller frequency sets and assemble them together in a playlist. Here is a description of the pieces you can use to create a playlist for your own custom sleep program. Each element of the play list a half hour, or 30 minutes long. You can piece together your own program. If your music player does not support playlists, you can take a file that is used multiple times, and make copies of that file with a new name. On my Sansa Clip+ music player, which does not have playlist support, I needed to put numbers in front of the filename so that the files would play in the correct order.

beta2theta-lilly is a half hour program that goes from an awake Beta wave state to a light sleep Theta wave state. The frequency set for this program is 14-4=1800. (The file beta2theta-lilly will have one of the following name depending on its file type: beta2theta-lilly.mp3,  beta2theta-lilly.m4a, or beta2theta-lilly.flac. All the following descriptions will have a suffix of .mp3, .m4a, or .flac, depending on which audio format you choose.)

theta-lilly is a program that stays in the light sleep Theta wave state for a half hour. Its frequency set is 4=1800.

theta2delta-lilly is a half hour program that goes from a light sleep Theta wave state to a deep sleep Delta wave state. Its frequency set is 4-0.5=1800.

delta-lilly is a program that stays in the deep sleep Delta wave state for a half hour. Its frequency set is 0.5=1800.

delta2beta-lilly is a half hour program that goes from a deep sleep Delta wave state to an awake Beta wave state. Its frequency set is 0.5-20=1800.

delta2theta-lilly is a half hour program that goes from a deep sleep Delta Wave state to a light sleep Theta wave state. Its frequency set is 0.5-4=1800.

theta2beta-lilly is a half hour program that goes from a light sleep Theta wave state to an awake Beta wave state. Its frequency set is 4-20=1800. To create an 8 hour program that goes from Beta to Theta to Delta back to Beta is:

beta2theta-lilly.flac
theta-lilly.flac
theta-lilly.flac
theta2delta-lilly.flac
delta-lilly.flac

Alternatively, you can create a 8 hour program that goes between back and forth between Theta and Delta sleep:

Distortions, Distortions, Distortions

I just bought a new MagCheck 95 single access AC magnetic field sensor. I am able to measure the AC characteristics of the diypemf magnetic fields coming out of the coils. The MagCheck plugs into my oscilloscope, and I can see the exact waveform coming out of the coils, with a frequency range of 25Hz to 3000Hz, and up to 50 gauss magnetic field strength.

There are a few factors that cause distortions of the input waveforms – too much volume, too low frequency for some waves, and an unbalanced waveform.

Here is what a clean 500Hz sine wave looks like (the volume on my iPod touch is at 8 out of 10):

500HzSin

When the volume is at to full, the sine wave looks as clipped as follows:

500HzSinClip

Because of the following attribute of the output of the headphone jack, where the output is decoupled from the headphones with a capacitor as in the following circuit, low frequency signals are distorted as seen in the following graphic:

Distorted Waveform

Here is an example of low frequency distortion as described in the above graphic. Here is a 25Hz square wave, distorted:

25HzSquare

Here is a square wave at 500Hz, less distorted:

500HzSquare

Here is the Lilly wave at 25 Hz:

25HzLilly

Here is the Lilly wave at 500Hz, looking much better:

500HzLilly

The capacitor coupled output also causes distortion of the pulse wave. The pulse wave is intended to be a positive offset only waveform.

The audio file for a pulse wave looks as follows:

20HzPulse

However, when measured, the output looks as follows:

25HzPulse

The capacitor in the output circuit balances the area above zero with the area below zero. Unfortunately, this makes having a north pole only magnetic field impossible unless one adds additional circuitry to add a positive Direct Current offset.

The other benefit of having this new magnetic probe is that I can measure magnetic strengths beyond the 100 milligauss limit of the TriField meter. In the above graphics, 1 millivolt is equal to 1 milligauss. In the clipped sine wave, the magnetic strength is around 300 milligauss, in the pulse wave above, the magnetic strength is around 250 milligauss.

[January 29, 2015 Update] I was measuring the various frequencies and waveforms I used on this blog post with the Spooky2-XM generator, and I noticed the same distortions on the low frequency waveforms. This got me wondering what the MP3 output looks like without the coils, by simply measuring the output out of the headphone jack with my oscilloscope. What I found was surprising, that the output waveforms are very clean even at a low frequency of 25 Hz. The following images are taken directly from the headphone output.

Very little distortion on a 25 Hz square wave:

25HzBareSquare

Very little distortion on a 25 Hz Lilly wave:

25HzBareLillyThe 25 Hz pulse wave, though not perfect, is cleaner than the waveform coming through the coils:

25HzBarePulse

 

This leads me to believe that the distortions are either coming out of the Alleva-Wave coils themselves, or the MagCheck 95 probe is introducing this distortion. The MagCheck 95 probe documentation states that the probe is highly accurate from 25Hz to 3000 Hz. So perhaps its the coils introducing this distortion.

 

New PEMF Users Cautions

Before you actively use your PEMF device, you ought to first look at some of the contraindications. People who should not use PEMF include pregnant women and people with pacemakers. For a full list of contraindications, see Dr Pawluk’s PEMF Contraindications.

And a gentle reminder: I make no claims about PEMF may do for you. Many people have found PEMF useful for them, though PEMF does not work for everyone. Some people are too sensitive to use PEMF, those who are adversely affected by electrosmog and have extreme EMF sensitivities. On the other hand, low frequencies like the Schumann resonance enhance some people’s health because electrosmog pollution makes the earth’s natural frequencies unavailable to most people who spend a lot of time indoors.

The makers of the electromagnetic coils warn people not to use the coils on the head. When the coil is directly against your skin, you are getting over 100 milligauss or more of magnetic energy entering your body. The maximum strength of magnetic field that is safe for long term exposure varies from different standards agencies. Some say 10-20 milligauss is too high, others say 3 milligauss. For myself, when I sleep, I like 0.5 milligauss or less. This means my head has a pillow between it and the coils. But I have had a lot of time to build up to this, for a beginner this may be too much. If you are using the PEMF for sleep enhancement, and you are feeling agitated by the coils, either turn down the volume on your music player or place the coils further away from your head. It may be that for some sensitive people, they need to place the coils under their mattress. The frequencies I use for sleep is the Delta Wave frequencies found in the Brain Waves series.

The Rife Frequencies

In the previous post you learned how to create your own frequency set. Looking up frequencies in a list on the internet and hand typing them into a tool can be quite cumbersome. For this reason, you can now search the Consolidated Annotated Frequency List (CAFL), the Brainwave Frequency List (BFL), the Hulda Clark Frequency List (HCL), and the Bruce Stenulson Frequency List (BSL) with an online tool and click on the results to automatically fill in the Create Rife Frequency Set tool.

The CAFL has many frequency sets for chronic and serious diseases. If you have a chronic and serious disease, I highly recommend you check out Spooky2, a richly featured Rife solution that is quite inexpensive (under $200, possible to get under $100 if you buy the older hardware and make your own remote transmission device). PEMF is great for relaxation, getting better sleep, altering your mental state, and stimulating cellular activity, but it is the beyond the scope of low-powered low-frequency PEMF to heal chronic diseases and conditions (there are high-powered high-frequency PEMF solution that do heal chronic conditions, but none of them are as inexpensive and easy to use as Spooky2).

When I first came up with the idea to make my own DIY PEMF device, I did not have any experience with Rife. In searching the internet for other DIY solutions, I came across Spooky2, and became so enthralled with Spooky2 that I set down working on this website and the research for this website for some time. And during this time I’ve used Spooky2 to heal aches and pains, as well has helping friends with their illnesses and chronic conditions.

The Brainwave Frequency List has a bunch of fun frequencies that may or may not work for you. There are frequencies to alter your mood, your emotions, your chakras, your mental and cognitive state.

The Hulda Clark Frequency List contains frequencies to kill parasites: bacteria, viruses, protozoa, amoeba, worms and flukes.

The Bruce Stenulson Frequency List has frequencies to normalize and stimulate various organs and functions in the body.

On the Search Frequency Database tool, there is only one field called Search and a Search Button. Here is a screenshot

search

If the Search text field contains multiple words, then for an entry to match, it must contain all the words in the Search field. So for example, if you search for true love, this will match an entry that contains true for love,or one that contains love is true, or true love. If you only want to match true love, put double quotes around the words, i.e. “true love”.

Once you find a result that might work for you, click on the Title link of the result, and you will be taken to the Create Rife Frequency Set tool. Fill in any of the optional fields in the tool and then click Create Set. If one or more of the frequencies are higher than 2400, you can click the Fix Frequencies button to correct any high frequency.

I discovered the CAFL, BFL, HCL, and BSL from the Electroherbalism website. The BFL originally came from the LunarSight website. In the description of the BFL entries are references, say like [TOS] or [DW], described in this bibliography.

Create a Frequency Set

You may want to use your PEMF device with multiple frequencies in a single audio file. Using the instructions on this page, you can create a frequency set audio file. The frequencies you choose may come from the Consolidated Annotated Frequency List (CAFL) or some other Rife frequency set.

Using the headache example given in an earlier post, we have the following frequencies:

Headaches - 144, 160, 1.2, 520, 10, 10000, 304

Like the earlier Create A Custom Frequency, you also need to know what kind of audio you desire: MP3, Apple Lossless (ALAC), or Free Lossless (FLAC). There are some other optional fields in the online tool that are useful when create your own custom audio file. Here is a screenshot of the Create Rife Frequency Set tool:

rife

Here are their definitions of the fields in the tool:

  • Frequencies is a comma separated list of frequencies that are in your frequency set. For the headache example above, the entry would be (note that I’ve removed the space between the numbers):
    144,160,1.2,520,10,10000,304

    Each frequency can specify the time in seconds it is supposed to play, and each frequency can possibly have a different play time. If you don’t specify a specify play time, the play time defaults to the Dwell setting described below. Here is an example:

    144=360,160,1.2,520=60,10,10000,304

    In this example, 144 plays for 360 seconds, and 520 plays for 60 seconds, and the rest of the frequencies play for the time specified in the Dwell field.
    You can also specify a frequency sweep. A frequency sweep has 2 numbers separated by a hyphen. The first number is the starting frequency, and the second number is the ending frequency. Here is an example:

    144=360,160-180,1.2,520-555=60,10,10000,304

    In this example, there are two sweeps. The first one starts at 160 and ends at 180, and it does this over the default Dwell time. The second sweep starts at 520 and ends at 555, and it does this over 60 seconds.

  • Wave Form is the wave form to use in creating the audio file. Pulse is the default wave, the least intense in term of magnetic power, but others are available for your experimentation. Pulse is a 5% duty positive offset only square wave. All other waves beside pulse are positive and negative offset. The next least intense wave is the Lilly wave. The other waves are sawtooth, reverse sawtooth, triangle, and sine.
  • Audio Format is the desired format of your audio file. For Apple and iOS products (iPod, iPhone, iPad), choose Apple Lossless (ALAC). For open source music players, like Android 3.1+ and Rockbox, or commercial players like RIM Blackberry, Cowon, Creative Zen, HiFiMAN, Sansa Clip family, TrekStor, iRiver, Archos, and Latte, choose Free Lossless (FLAC). If your music player cannot handle the other lossless formats, choose MP3, which is a lossy format. The ALAC and FLAC formats will offer no distortion and smaller download size, while the MP3 files are distorted because of the lossy compression.
  • Dwell is the time in seconds that each frequency that does have a time specifier will play. If you leave Dwell empty, the play time will default to 180 seconds for each frequency that doesn’t have a time specified.
  • Album Name is useful to help organize your  files. In the music world, this field specifies a song’s album name. For our purposes, this allows us to group our audio file by functionality or common property.
  • Track Name is the printed name of the song on your music player’s user interface. For musical audio files, this is the name of the song.
  • Track Number is the numeric value used by music players to order the songs in an album. For our purposes, its best to start at 1, and increment for each new song you add to the album.

Once you have the frequencies you want, and perhaps the optional fields, click the following link: Create Rife Frequency Set. Fill in the form values on this page and click the Create Set button. If there are no errors in the form, in a moment a new zip compressed audio file will download to your computer. Take this zip compressed file, decompress it (this functionality is standard for Windows and MacOS), and then download it to your music player to enjoy the new frequency.

If any of the frequencies you want to use is greater than 2400, you can click the Fix Frequencies button to get an octal subharmonic of your frequency that is in the valid range. The software divides the frequency by 2 until the value is less than or equal to 2400.

The Lilly Wave

John C. Lilly was a neuroscientist who invented the Lilly wave or the Lilly pulse, which is a balanced bidirectional pulse pair, which looks as follows.

lillywave

This wave is useful because it does not damage brain tissue when an electric current is applied to the brain via electrodes. Using this waveform prevents both thermal and electrolytic damage. You can read more about the Lilly wave here: The Lilly Wave.

Also, what is somewhat controversial is that the Lilly wave is used in mind control because this waveform does not fatigue the brain or damage its tissues.

You can download the Lilly wave version of the PEMF frequencies described in the earlier blog postings in the following table.

Create A Custom Frequency

If you’ve perused the Downloads on this site and haven’t found a remedy for a condition or ailment, you may want to create your own custom frequency audio file. Before you can create your own frequency audio file, you first need to know what frequency to use. The Consolidated Annotated Frequency List (CAFL) is a useful reference used primarily by the Rife community, to find frequencies that help with various conditions and ailments. After loading the CAFL into a browser window, you can use the browser’s “seach-in-page” feature (on Windows Control-f, for Mac Command-f) and search for a specific condition.

For example, lets say I have a headache. I search the CAFL for headache, and there are 12 entries that refer to headache. After looking at the 12 entries, I’ve decided to go with the following:

Headaches - 144, 160, 1.2, 520, 10, 10000, 304

According to some authors, PEMF works best at 32Hz or less. Given that, there are only 2 values that apply in this list, 1.2 Hz and 10 Hz. Since the 10 Hz frequency already exists in the Downloads, I’ve decided I want to try 1.2 Hz.

The frequency is the main piece of information you need to create your own custom frequency audio file. You also need to know what kind of audio you desire: MP3, Apple Lossless (ALAC), or Free Lossless (FLAC). There are some other optional fields in the online tool that are useful when create your own custom MP3 file. Here is a screenshot of the Create Custom Frequency tool:

freq

Here are the definitions of the fields in the online tool:

  • Frequency is the frequency of your audio file. It must be a number greater than zero but less than or equal to 2400 (see the note below for an explanation of this number). You can use a number with a decimal point, say like 7.83 or 3.14159.
  • Wave Form is the wave form to use in creating the audio file. Pulse is the default wave, the least intense in term of magnetic power, but others are available for your experimentation. Pulse is a 5% duty positive offset only square wave. All other waves beside pulse are positive and negative offset. The next least intense wave is the Lilly wave. The other waves are sawtooth, reverse sawtooth, triangle, and sine.
  • Audio Format is the desired format of your audio file. For Apple and iOS products (iPod, iPhone, iPad), choose Apple Lossless (ALAC). For open source music players, like Android 3.1+ and Rockbox, or commercial players like RIM Blackberry, Cowon, Creative Zen, HiFiMAN, Sansa Clip family, TrekStor, iRiver, Archos, and Latte, choose Free Lossless (FLAC). If your music player cannot handle the other lossless formats, choose MP3, which is a lossy format. The ALAC and FLAC formats will offer no distortion and smaller download size, while the MP3 files are distorted because of the lossy compression.
  • Album Name is useful to help organize your  files. In the music world, this field specifies a song’s album name. For our purposes, this allows us to group our audio file by functionality or common property.
  • Track Name is the printed name of the song on your music player’s user interface. For musical audio files, this is the name of the song.
  • Track Number is the numeric value used by music players to order the songs in an album. For our purposes, its best to start at 1, and increment for each new song you add to the album.

Once you have your frequency you want, and perhaps the optional fields, click the following link: Create Custom Frequency. Fill in the form values on this page and click the Create button.

Take this zip compressed file, decompress it (this functionality is standard for Windows and MacOS), and then download it to your music player to enjoy the new frequency.

[June 1, 2014 Update] I’ve added ALAC and FLAC support.

[June 4, 2014 Update] Corrected the maximum frequency, now set at 2400Hz. The reason this maximum rate is so low is because to get the definition needed in the wave forms, 20 samples per cycle are needed. The pulse wave used in these samples is a 5% duty positive offset square wave, so 20 samples are needed to implement 5%-on versus 95%-off in the pulse wave. The sample rate of these audio files is 48000 samples per second, so the maximum frequency is 48000 / 20, or 2400 Hz. If you submit a frequency higher than 2400, the software will calculate a fundamental subharmonic, and suggest this subharmonic in an error message.
