Dear Readers:I suppose if you've been 'reading me' this far, a few more 'crazy-and-out-there' articles aren't going to make much of a difference. Above is a graph of the so-called Kp index used by astrophysicists to quantify solar energy so that they can relate it in terms of what that energy means when it causes the 'geomagnetic storms' of t.v. and movie fame we are all familiar with. The official definitions of the K, Kp and estimated Kp indices are as follows:
Officially, "The K-index is a code that is related to the maximum fluctuations of horizontal components observed on a magnetometer relative to a quiet day, during a three-hour interval. The conversion table from maximum fluctuation (nT) to K-index, varies from observatory to observatory in such a way that the historical rate of occurrence of certain levels of K are about the same at all observatories. In practice this means that observatories at higher geomagnetic latitude require higher levels of fluctuation for a given K-index...The official planetary Kp index is derived by calculating a weighted average of K-indices from a network of geomagnetic observatories. Since these observatories do not report their data in real-time, it is necessary for an operations center such as ourselves to make the best estimate we can of this index based on available data. Space weather operations uses near real-time estimates of the Kp index which are derived by the U.S. Air Force 55th Space Weather Squadron. These estimated of Kp are based on a network of observatories reporting in near real-time. Most of the observatories are in North America, although there is one European station also contributing at this time (Hartland, UK)."Link: http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/info/Kindex.html
The above is from NOAA directly. I prefer to reference original sources of data, as you undoubtedly know by now. I believe average people like ourselves are fully capable of putting 2 + 2 together, if we only take a little time to study the terminology. This is 'Rocket Science' anyone can understand.
Below is the correlation between the Kp index and the Geomagnetic storm scale the pros use. The Kp scale is a reasonable way to summarize the global level of geomagnetic activity, but it has not always been easy for civilians to understand its significance. The NOAA G-scale was designed to correspond, in a straightforward way, to the significance of effects of geomagnetic storms. We use estimates of the planetary average Kp index in our operations to determine Geomagnetic Storm (NOAA Space Weather Scale) level, as follows: (Yes, some of this has been covered in some of my other Tutorials, but today is an unusual day)
Kp-index NOAA Space Weather Scale
Geomagnetic Storm Level
Kp of 0 to 4 is below storm, which we label is G0.
Matching the Kp index value of Kp=7.0 in the colorful graph gracing the top of this piece, with the scale just presented, we can see that we have a STRONG GEOMAGNETIC STORM LEVEL G3 on EARTH TODAY. IS ANYONE IN THE MEDIA MENTIONING THIS? I DON'T THINK SO!
Here's what a Category G3 Geomagnetic Storm Means:
Power systems: voltage corrections may be required, false alarms triggered on some protection devices.
Spacecraft operations: surface charging may occur on satellite components, drag may increase on low-Earth-orbit satellites, and corrections may be needed for orientation problems.
Other systems: intermittent satellite navigation and low-frequency radio navigation problems may occur, HF radio may be intermittent, and aurora has been seen as low as Illinois and Oregon (typically 50° geomagnetic lat.)**.

Here's a K-scale graph for a longer time period to further drive home the point I'm making:
Now the Granddaddy of all space weather graph alerts from NOAA is this one for today:
From what I can discern, the REALLY bad stuff happens when the other indicators in the above compilation of graphs rise. That means that we (the earth) will be under whatever degree of threat per NOAA and other 'experts' of bombardment by x-rays, protons, electrons and more, also. And those still having metallic tooth fillings may well be receiving transmissions from expected radio wave bursts, etc, etc and so on. I suppose it may well end up as an alert here on ww.DearOnesHealingMinistry.blogspot.com ..if I catch it in time, but I suggest you monitor this for yourselves: http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/alerts/warnings_timeline.html
And there's another rub: things can happen very quickly and data doesn't get collected, analyzed, agreed upon, posted and reported upon right away. By the time it does, we will all have already been bombarded with whatever we are due to be bombarded with. Seeing as this is the case, I offer my advice, which is to: monitor the links I've provided here every so often or when 'you have your suspicions', but don't obsess with it. Leave that to others and I will try to do my best for you. Above all--DO NOT WORRY. These things are BOUND to come.
We cannot change the course of planetary or other history, but we can determine how we will react to these changes, good and bad. I just finished watching a few videos of yesterday' big 7.0/7/2 EASTER Mexicali Quake and had to chuckle as people stood in their backyards videoing their 'pool tsunamis'. While this may be fine at a distance, in real time in a direct location, things will be quite different.
So while I'm telling you not to be a dork standing there filming your pool sloshing it's water back and forth, I am telling you to 'let go and let God' as you stand there watching the water in your pool slosh back and forth. Got that?
God saves and Jesus is calling....NOW! Check the Goodness of the Lord out, today, for this is the only urgency you really have if you haven't done so before. Consider God's Kindness in presenting to us the Gift of His Son, the Resurrected Christ. Pray on this and what once seemed like 'believers' foolishness' will suddenly transform into a mystery you can't wait to be a part of! If you open yourself up, MUCH will be revealed to you and all the Kp indices and other NOAA data in the world will literally mean nothing to you, by comparison.
There will be terrible storms and many frightful things in the world, but when you believe, you will NOT be afraid with the protection of your Heavenly Father.
May you walk with God,
