Solar Terrestrial Indices

Below you will find links to solar terrestrial indices which you can use to learn more about solar flux and the geomagnetic field. I refer to these frequently, as I have done for the last 35 years. You can compare sudden bursts of geomagnetic activity, called storms, with their specified intensity (the A and K indices) to how you feel, and thus learn to identify magnetic fluctuations and corresponding feelings. This is excellent training that will help you locate luminous places in the wilderness. The feeling of geomagnetic storms teaches you to pay attention to specific qualities of feeling, and this is the same magnetic sense you can use to perceive the magnetic qualities of certain luminous places.

The same approach applies to solar flux (measured at 2800mhz, a microwave frequency generated by the sun that easily passes through clouds): sudden changes are perceptible and correspond with feelings and personal energy levels. Solar flux varies the most during periods of sunspot activity, and that is the best time to look for the effects within you.  We are in a period of solar minimum (December 2016), with few sudden bursts of solar flux (the flux value is at the bottom of the scale) and occasional geomagnetic storms; however, it is still worth watching.

Inner space can be significantly altered by both solar flux and geomagnetic storms. If you are planning on an inner journey via hypnosis, meditation, the flotation tank, etc, then check the indices for space weather conditions: you will be amazed at how much our inner landscape is modulated by both the geomagnetic field and solar flux.   This is my favorite for fast and complete information at a glance. Solar flux is in the upper left corner, abbreviated as SFI.  A and K indices are below the SFI. You can click on any window for enlargement and more information. The aurora photos are excellent.

This data is also available on shortwave frequencies from the station WWV on  5, 10, 15 and 20 megahertz; also by telephone((303) 499-7111 for WWV, from Fort Collins, Colorado.  Use their home tab to see more charts and satellite information.
