Solar Flames & Storms May 22nd – 25th, These Are The Symptoms to Expect

Earth entered a stream of solar wind flowing from a northern hole in the sun’s atmosphere on the 22nd of May. This will last until the 25th of May. The gaseous material is grazing our planet’s magnetic field at speeds approaching 500 km/s–.

How Solar Flares & Geomagnetic Storms Affect Us

As humans, we can greatly be affected by certain space weather activity, such as solar flares and electromagnetic storms on a mental, emotional, physical and spiritual level. Read below about such phenomenon and the various associated symptoms you may experience.

What are Solar Flares?


According to Wikipedia:

“A solar flare is a sudden flash of brightness observed near the Sun’s surface. It involves a very broad spectrum of emissions, requiring an energy release of up to 6 × 1025 joules of energy  (roughly the equivalent of 160,000,000,000 megatons of TNT… Flares are often, but not always, accompanied by a coronal mass ejection. The flare ejects clouds of electrons, ions, and atoms through the corona of the sun into space. These clouds typically reach Earth a day or two after the event.”

How do Solar Flares Affect Us?


​Solar flares are a space weather phenomenon that can greatly impact our human bodies and lives, biologically affect us, and consequently affect our ability to cope. They can influence our brain activity and sense of equilibrium, central nervous system, psycho-physiological and emotional self as well as behavioral tendencies.

​On a higher consciousness level they serve to transform us on a cellular level, and they can tear apart old patterns and influence us to make changes in our life, even if it is from a more sub-conscious level. This internal shifting might bring fears up to the surface.

​Here are some common specific symptoms people might experience during a period of solar storm activity:


  • headaches or migraines, the feeling of pressure in your head
  • feeling ‘off,’ agitated, uneasy or out of kilter
  • lethargy, exhaustion
  • nausea, queeziness
  • heart fluttering, racing or palpitations
  • hyper-tension (high blood pressure)
  • hot flashes
  • high-pitched ringing of the ears
  • dizziness, the jitters or vertigo
  • visual disturbances
  • feeling confused, bewildered, unclear, foggy-headed or sporadic short-term memory loss or forgetfulness
  • issues with sleep such as interrupted sleep, waking up too early or late, not feeling like you had enough
  • vivid or stressful dreams
  • feeling stressed
  • anxiety & worrying
  • irritable mood
  • depression,, sadness grief, despair
  • increased sensitivity
  • general overwhelm or feeling like you just can’t cope
  • the feeling of losing track of time, or  “Where did my day go?”
  • you might also notice technological & tele-communication disturbances, such as computers going haywire

(please always see a doctor if you are concerned about any symptoms)

What are Geomagnetic Storms?


Wikipedia describes geomagnetic storms as:

“…a temporary disturbance of the Earth’s magnetosphere  caused by a solar wind shock wave and/or cloud of magnetic field that interacts with the Earth’s magnetic field.  The increase in the solar wind pressure initially compresses the magnetosphere. The solar wind’s magnetic field interacts with the Earth’s magnetic field and transfers an increased energy into the magnetosphere. Both interactions cause an increase in plasma movement through the magnetosphere (driven by increased electric fields inside the magnetosphere) and an increase in electric current in the magnetosphere and  ionosphere.

How Geo-Magnetic Storms Affect Us


Like solar flares, it is said by some that geo-magnetic storms actually help us receive energetic ‘downloads’ and ascend as we move from our physical body to our ‘lightbody’ (a higher energetic  and spiritual state. moving closer to the higher dimensions). They offer us ‘upgrades’ and assist in the transmutation and changing of our DNA. This is a process, not something that happens overnight.

​Geo-magnetic storms are highly transformational. They might be happening and you are not even aware of it and how it is influencing your daily life, as  there are also symptoms associated with the phenomenon.

During a storm, you can expect any of the following:

  • headaches or migraines
  • ​breathing issues
  •  ​sleeping issues (such as insomnia, interrupted sleep, not getting a full night’s rest)
  • tingly head (crown chakra activation)
  • irritable mood
  • losing items or they somehow mysteriously return
  • time warps / glitches – you lose periods of time, or have odd experiences such as feeling like only a few minutes have passed and yet you look at the clock and it’s actually been an hour, or the other way around.
  • being aware of other dimensions
  • seeing or sensing spirits, heightened paranormal activity
  • sudden insights and revelations that seem to come out of nowhere
  • an experience known as the ‘Mandela Effect’
  • technology / tele-communication devices, computer systems going haywire

Tips to Help You Cope

There are some things you can do to get you through such periods of intense and heightened solar / space activity (they are also helpful when you are experiencing any kind of energy affects).

Here are some suggestions:

  • ​take salt baths
  • do anything that will help you relieve stress or anxiety
  • magnesium supplements
  • drink a lot of pure water
  • eat healthily
  • ​avoid or reduce your intake of caffeine and alcohol
  • try using relaxing aromatherapy
  • ​meditate more or do stillness, relaxation & breathing exercise
  • ​gentle exercise (but don’t overdo it)
  • ​get out into nature
  • resolve to take it easy and go easy on yourself
  • positive attitude and affirmations
  • keep away from negative people and avoid drama

How to Check Space Weather Activity


Flares are labelled as X, M, C or B class, in terms of their severity. X and M class are the ones to watch out for., as they are the most intense. The C and B level ones are fairly frequent and low level and probably don’t affect us that much or at all.

​You can try a website such as  (I have no connection to that site). At the top of the left column there is a ‘Current Conditions’ section (note: you may not be able to access it as easily on your smartphone), and you will find solar flare activity recorded there with which class it is so you can know the level of severity.  You can then scroll down to the ‘Planetary K-index’ section. This is where you can check for geomagnetic storms. The scale is updated every three hours and has a range from 0 to 9, “directly related to the maximum amount of fluctuation (relative to a quiet day) in the geomagnetic field over a three-hour interval.”  It will say the Kp number, and whether there is a ‘storm.’ It might also say something like ‘strong’ also giving you an indication of its intensity. If you click on ‘more data’, pay attention to the graph. The red lines mean that there is a severe storm in action which will no doubt be impacting you and your life.
