Here Comes the Sun

by Trinity S. Thomas on September 3, 2012


We are one year away from what our scientists call the Solar Maximum. The UK government has identified the activity coming through our Sun, solar flares, as the number one emergency of the coming year.

My adventure with the Sun began in the early 1990’s, when I discovered I have an unusual sensitivity to solar flares. I was studying at the Boulder Transformational Institute, learning to understand metaphysical principles and practices. Boulder sits at an altitude of more than a mile high, contributing to the power of the felt sense of the flares. Synchronistically, Boulder is the home for NOAA, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, where solar flares are tracked and studied. I mentioned to my class that I was having periods of time when it seemed impossible to feel grounded, sometimes accompanied by odd headaches and colored lights at the corners of my eyes, with extreme dream activity and heightened emotion.

One of my classmates was living with a NOAA scientist, and as we eventually tracked my ‘episodes’ she helped me see they were related to solar flare activity. The osteopath in the group explained that solar flares can affect the cranial plates in the skull, changing or reducing the flow of the cranial sacral fluid, which affects all bodily flows of energy. It became a bit of a joke for my friends and family. Emotional or spacey behavior on my part would be an occasion to ‘check for solar flares.’ Odd happenings of any sort might be blamed on them. Solar flares as a topic became both humor and background, taken for granted like the more terrestrial weather events of Rocky Mountain lightning and thunderstorms.

Fast forward to our year of 2012 and we are in a solar cycle that has become a real player in our world. From Jim Self’s ( September 2012 Mastering Alchemy Newsletter:

“This year has seen an unprecedented amount of solar activity in the form of sunspots, solar flares and winds, and CMEs. In 2009 there were 260 days when there was no activity at all from the sun. In 2010, this number of “spot-less” days was reduced to 51. In 2011, that number fell again to just 2 days without any activity. So far this year, there has not been a single day without some form of solar activity. We are still building to a peak; the solar maximum is not due to occur until mid 2013.”

Many scientists theorize that the recent record heat has been related to the increased radiation from, or through, our sun. Scientists have been researching energies beyond our solar system, assessing not only what comes from our sun, but what comes through our sun from far beyond our solar system. Mayan mythology also speaks of this time. From Mitch Battros of Earth Changes Media:

As a result of aligning with a stream of cosmic rays from our Milky Way, and with the Sun reaching its maximum strength for this cycle, an enormous amount of charged particles will hit our solar system, Earth, and each of us. If Mayan prophecy maintains its accuracy, a significant shift will occur with both the Earth itself – in the way of earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes and all forms of extreme weather – as well a shift in all living things – in the way of emotional/mental disturbance which leads to increased awareness and consciousness.  

Mayan prophecy believes there will be a shift in humans and all living things stimulated by an increase in magnetically charged particles. This will have an effect on our own human magnetic field which will have a transitioning effect on the way one sees and interacts in their world. The time we are in now, is a time of “disturbance” as we come to the end of the 4th World and transition into the 5th World. It is a time when people are sorting out what is true for them – a time to decide if their current path is consistent with their true integrity.

I have been on a high search for information about, strategies to cope with, and beneficial aspects of solar flares for 20 years. Here are some of my best tips:

Be aware: Pay attention to solar flare episodes. Not only may they affect you personally, they often affect weather, earth changes, political uprisings, communications, computers, even credit card networks. Being aware of the cycles will de-personalize your own fluctuations and help you adapt more easily. You can sign up for notifications at

Friends: Make good friends with them. There are perhaps near-miraculous aspects to these streaming particles. See information from Tom Kenyon at and

Go Gently: Be as gentle as possible with yourself and in all of your interactions during flares.

Weather: Pay extra attention to weather, particularly as you move about the planet. Weather is dramatically affected by flares.

Emergency Prep: All the usual. Have extra water around or a plan for purifying it. Keep gas tanks half full, have emergency supplies in your car, plan road and air trips carefully. Have extra food and medicine supplies in your home in case of increasing power outages. Re-check travel plans and schedules.

Solar flares dramatically affect the magnetic field of earth, and therefore our own energy fields. They weaken the structure of the fields as they weaken the boundaries of our emotional bodies, allowing us to more easily release beliefs, positions, and biases. What a gift! With consciousness, we can make use of the solar flare interludes to lighten up, shed emotional baggage, and shift info a higher octave of ourselves. To propel and refine what we choose to imagine and create. 

Be aware that everyone and everything is being affected. Migrating birds are not the only beings finding themselves a bit off course and undirected, with longstanding markers moved or missing.  Extra kindness and patience will help stabilize your environment. Especially yourself!

Most of all, I recommend being grateful. Grateful for the amazing opportunity to evolve and lighten up, surfing the high energy electrons flowing through our Sun into our lives. Receive the gift!
