Here, for context, are some examples of really bad days in terms of Earthlings getting hit with energies from outside the planet.
Let me start by saying that 2017 was a horrific year!! I had forgotten how intense it was until I just went through my photos. Ugh.
Let me say this next: You don’t need to understand these charts at all, for them to be meaningful.
All we need to do is this: Understand what a normal day looks like. Then you’ll be able to recognize what is abnormal.
Electron Flux, Proton Flux, Riometers
On the charts with lines going left to right, a normal day usually has these lines gently going in a straight-ish line. Therefore, if the lines suddenly drop or suddenly go up, that’s abnormal.
For solar wind: A normal day has a speed = 350 km/s, and density = 7.5 protons/cm3 (approximate). Notice the days when the speed is above 700 (twice as fast–per second), and the proton density is over 50. Those are abnormal.
For the Schumann chart, a normal day is all blue. A slight disturbance is green. An abnormal day has white.
As of 2020, we are now in a solar minimum, which means the sun is quiet and shouldn’t be flaring. Back in 2017, however, the sun was quite active.
Solar flares are rated in three main classes: C-class flares are quite small. M-class flares are mid-sized. X-class flares are large and can cause the most damage.
The size rating is not linear, though. Per NASA, “Similar to the Richter scale for earthquakes, each letter represents a 10-fold increase in energy output. So an X is ten times an M and 100 times a C. Within each letter class there is a finer scale from 1 to 9.”
Note the day we had 21 flares–and they were noteworthy ones: up to an M8.1 flare.
Also note the massive X9.3 flare we had in September 2017. (Interestingly, neither myself nor the other big empaths / energyworkers I know felt it at all. Hmm.)
Last, geomagnetic storms. A normal day is all green. A storm is red. Magnetic storms are rated on a scale of 1-5; 1 is minor, 5 is extreme. Note the G4 storm in September 2017.
Looking at the Charts Together
It can be interesting to notice a space weather event appearing on several charts simultaneously. It really highlights the fact that everything is connected.
To that end, here are some examples of what that looks like:
Space weather is not the only thing affecting us. But it does affect us. So it can be useful to track it.

Any questions, let me know.
