Is Earth's Pole Shift Happening?

A few years ago, as the new millennium approached, there was trepidation when some prominent psychics predicated a so-called Pole Shift that would alter Earth’s magnetic field and result in tremendous cataclysms.

Scientists report they are now witnessing a weakening of the magnetic field – at least 10 percent in the past 150 years – an early indicator of a potential pole shift. The last major change in the magnetic field was 780,000 years ago during a magnetic pole reversal.

Scientists at the GFZ German Research Center for Geosciences are analyzing nine years of satellite data to determine how sudden fluid motions in the earth’s core may be altering the magnetic field, which extends some 36,000 miles into space.

Earth’s magnetic field protects the planet from electromagnetic radiation from space. Many animals, including some birds, rely on magnetic forces to navigate. Although the reversal back in the Pleistocene era does not appear to have caused mass extinctions, the effects of a future reversal are unknown.

A Pole Shift Interview with Gregg Braden

Members of the metaphysical community have been warning of a pole shift since the mid 1990s and even earlier. A prominent writer on the subject is Gregg Braden (pictured below), who began studying the evidence in the 1970s while working for Phillips Petroleum and wrote the 1996 book Awakening to Zero Point to explain his findings.

“We know that the poles are actually moving,” Braden said in a recent interview. “We don't know exactly what that means, because even though it's happened 14 times in the last four and a half million years, it's never happened with six billion people on the earth.

“Scientists have no idea what the impact is going to be to electronic and electromagnetic power grids. But even more, they don't know what it means to human immune systems. Alternative healing modalities have shown a connection between magnetics and the immune system, which also would imply that our immune systems could very well be keyed into the magnetic fields of the earth.

“We know that birds and animals migrate along the lines of these magnetic fields. So there is speculation that the changes taking place in the magnetic field are responsible for the changing migratory patterns in birds that have been recorded in Asia and North America.

“The change in the fields also may explain why whales are beaching themselves. The lines of navigation that the whales have always followed have shifted and now lead them onto a beach. When we take them back out into the water and set them free, they continue to align themselves with the same magnetic lines, and in following them, they end up on the beach again.

“So, yes, it's common knowledge now. The most respected scientific journals say that we're in this shift. And even though we don't know precisely what that means, it's significant that it is being acknowledged in peer-review kinds of literature, and not just in speculative or pseudo-scientific magazines.”

television advertisement lasting 2 weeks in August, ran late night
petro co man showing bands of the electromagnetic fields that surround the earth in background,
he said, (not direct quote)there are electromagnetic bands around the earth, we are researching and learning how to reorganize them to bring you the most innovative energy uses for the future
