I'd imagine this will get relegated to theory developement, but here goes anyways.

Looking at some of the charts for solor cycles it's clear to see the 11 year cycle. But this cycle seems to grow stronger with every repeation. It then resets to a low point a starts again. Now, I admit, I know nothing about this process and I'm just wildly speculating.
But, could this process eventually lead to a flipping of the magnetic poles of the sun? and could this then lead to the magnetic flipping cycle on earth that we see?
Crazy I know, but could one cause the other?

No, the sun's magnetic field flips every cycle - the Earth's flips every few tens of thousands of years. They have separate causes and can't affect each other - they just aren't strong enough.
