Vibrational Frequency

All living beings and non living beings are made up of certain energetic frequencies. What does that really mean? Everything in the universe is in motion vibrating at a certain frequency; human beings , the table around you, cars, plants etc.

Our thoughts, emotions, physical conditions including diseases have a certain level of vibrations, which is why you often hear things like “think good thoughts” or the “law of attractions – what you put out is what you will get”. So, in general, it is important to keep the vibrations up.

In 1992, Bruce Tainio and Washington University developed a frequency monitor that has been used to measure frequencies of humans and food.

VibrationalFreq1Even organs have frequencies – for instance, Heart is 67-70MHz, Lungs are 58-65 MHz, Liver is 55-60 MHz, Pancreas is 60-80 MHz.  A healthy body frequency is around 62-72 MHz and disease begins at 58MHz.

According to Dr. Rife, every disease has a frequency and certain frequencies will prevent the development of disease and yet others can actually kill the disease. This is important to keep in mind as it brings up the question of the frequencies of the food we eat or the air we breathe, as you can see in the chart below. Eating foods higher in frequency is very important as is surrounding yourself with habits (like meditation, thinking positive, loving yourself and others, being in nature)  that increase the frequency .

VibrarionalFrequency2As you can see in the chart above, essential oils have a high frequency. Clinical research has shown that Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils have the highest frequency known to man creating an environment where disease may be hard to live.

The frequency of the oil will bring the frequency up of the organ or body system it is trying to target. The frequency is what remains in the body to maintain the effects of the oil. Using oils on a regular basis helps create an environment where the frequency is higher there by fostering health and wellness.

Start by looking at how you can increase the vibrational frequencies in your life one step at a time. It might mean just paying attention to the food that you are eating or your thoughts. See what happens when you apply Lavender Essential Oil and how your whole system feels. Please do share your comments.

Is Lavender Essential Oil A Hormone Disrupter?

And therefore is not safe to be used on little boys or children? That is the question that I was asked  when talking to a friend. It has come up a few times since then and so I thought of writing a blog about it.

The study that was quoted to me was from one done with a sample of 3 subjects who used some product that contained Lavender EO. What the study did not take into account was the other additives in the product that was used. Plus, the purity of the Essential Oil was not cited either.

This study by Robert Tisserand shows that Lavender Oil does not mimic estrogen nor does it enhance the body’s own estrogen. I trust the results provided here.

Since I use it on my kiddo, I personally will not do anything to harm him so I have done so much research on what is safe for him and what is not. In fact, it is always something that I carry with me as it is so versatile. So, this is all to say that it does not concern me to use Lavender on him.

Surrender

Surrender

Universe / Divine often seems to push me to my knees to show that I am not in charge.

I want to share an incident that happened yesterday. It was a lazy Sat, my husband took our son for swim lessons while I finished preparing lunch. We ate lunch and put the kiddo down for a nap. I hadn’t been to the gym since my last post about exercise and felt the need to get back into a routine once more. So, after quickly tiding up the place (it always seems like a storm went through my house) I decided to go to the gym. It had already started to snow by then and I wanted to get back as quickly as possibly.

So, off I went to the gym for an hour. As luck would have it, I found one parking spot – the parking lot was heavily crowded for some reason, probably people trying to stock up before the heavy snow. I had a good workout and as I was walking towards my car, a man stopped me saying loudly “Did you do this?” I had no clue what he was talking about and said so to him. He then points to his back bumper and shows a scratch on it. Then, he points to a scratch on my front bumper and shows me a scratch on my car. He then proceeds to accuse me that I hit his car.

And even before I could say anything, a cop car shows up and blocks my car. Everything felt surreal. I know, it is not a big deal, accidents happen right. But something got triggered inside and I felt the injustice of being accused of something that I did not do. Any grounded person would have politely explained that and let things happen.

What did I do? I fell apart. I started crying and yelling that I did not hit that car. Crying hysterically – now in retrospect it was stupid to have had that crazy reaction. In my mind, I had 1 hour to myself and I wanted to just get back home to my kid and did not want to spend hours dealing with the insurance company for something that I did not do. It felt like pure injustice and a waste of time. Of course, my acting like a crazy person did not help but I could not stop crying. This hit a nerve.

Even with the cop explaining to that dude that it does not look like I did it – the man insisted to exchanging information with the insurance company. And then began the waiting period. The cop took all my information and I waited in the car. My phone then dies, it was like I was in twilight zone as all I wanted to do was call my husband or my friend and get some comfort.

Finally, after 25 long minutes, I was allowed to go. And my phone turned on mysteriously as well. It was almost like I was just meant to sit in the discomfort of being accused and my melt down – just ‘being’ and ‘accepting’ of the situation.

When I finally got to speak to my friend ‘Naomi’, who I often go to when I need a different perspective, she reminded me of this book that we both had read called “The Surrender Experiment“, where the author’s main way of being in life is to ‘let things happen’ and not ‘fight anything that life doles out to you’.

Obviously, this incident was no big deal but in the moment, it felt like the rug had been pulled out from under – being accused of something that I did not do seems like a big trigger, I guess. It was a great reminder of letting the universe be a guide. Surrender often gets a bad rap because people confuse it with submission.

So, what does Surrender really mean? Here is what Wiki says about it “To surrender in spirituality and religion means that a believer completely gives up his own will and subjects his thoughts, ideas, and deeds to the will and teachings of a higher power”.

For me, Surrender is my way being guided and being at peace with what is happening. It does not mean that I don’t do what I have to do, it means that I do my job and let the universe / divine do the rest – what ever that looks like – whether I like it or not / whether that was in my plans or not/ whether that is what I wanted or not. It means true acceptance without resistance. It means sitting with the discomfort, it means asking for guidance from a place of prayer / humbleness.

SurrenderEOBlogEvery morning before I start my day, I apply a drop of Surrender Essential Oil to my heart center and my forehead. I actively set an intention of giving me the strength and courage to ‘surrender’. And I had forgotten to do that on Sat morning. Just because I did not apply the EO does not mean that I should have forgotten that principle. To me, actively intending for ‘surrender’ sets the pace of the day and serves as a reminder.

What I love about Young Living is that they have an oil for everything. I truly love Surrender Essential Oil and feel grateful to have tools like this. Surrender is a blend and here is what YL describes the oil – “Surrender™ is a calming, soothing blend formulated for individuals who feel a need to be controlling. It helps quiet troubled hearts so that negative emotions can be released. Surrender may also help return feelings of equilibrium and inner strength”

Do you see those words “who need to be controlling” – that is me or should I say “recovering me”. I often joke about myself as a “recovering controller”. I have to work hard at it – letting go of control.

I will invite any of you struggling to let go of control to just experiment with Surrender and see how freeing it is – that is after you work through the fear : )

Healthy Weight Management

Weight is not something I have ever struggled with……Well, until….I got pregnant. I was always so prideful of my genes. My paternal grandmother was less than 5 ft tall, bore 8 children and probably never weighed more than 90 lbs.  Well, that is what I was blessed with, well, until I got pregnant.

Pregnancy was actually fine. I gained only the right amount 35 lbs and interestingly enough, I gained 15 more pounds after giving birth  in-spite of nursing. All the stories about nursing makes you shed the weight did NOT apply to me. It was so disheartening. I had so much compassion for people who try hard but are unable to shed the weight. I was so depressed. I am not big into being skinny, but my energy was down and it was so hard carrying around all that extra weight.

I found essential oils that helped with healthy weight management (which I will write about below) but I was reluctant to use them as they have peppermint EO and sometimes peppermint EO can reduce milk supply. I was not ready to loose the milk supply that I had worked hard towards maintaining. So, you must be thinking – there must be something about Essential Oils that she will be writing about. Yes, there is, but not all what helped me finally loose all the pregnancy + weight.

What worked for me was a high protein diet low carb diet, exercise regularly even if just for 20 min, reducing stress ( this was BIG as I was so stressed about my son’s eating issues – another post for later) , NingXia Red (I started drinking NingXia Red everyday especially before a workout) and Lemon EO ( I started having lemon eo in my water everyday in the morning) This really helped and 2 years since his birth, I am finally back to my pre pregnancy weight.

In any case, here is a protocol that might help many of you….

port-grapefruit-585x390

Grapefruit EO ( Helps boost metabolism)
Lemon EO ( Breaks down fat cells)
Peppermint (Helps with hunger)
Add 3-4 drops of each in a capsule and have one everyday preferably in the morning.

My invitation to anyone struggling with weight – Don’t give up, be persistent ( heard of compound effect – it works) and don’t loose hope.

 

Courage

martin-luther-king-jr-quotesThat to me is Courage. I often struggle with ‘Courage’ these days. My whole career for the last 16 years has been focussed on working with people one on one. Starting Harmony and Vitality required ‘Courage’ for me as it meant being out in public with my views and opinions.

Almost everyday since I first started this company, I have gone to my husband asking him for words of encouragement as doing this work has forced me to face my fears and challenges like never before. His words and support have encouraged me to go on.

He often reminds me of my ‘Why‘. This is the first time I am writing this in public, so thanks for being a part of this. My ‘Why‘ is to bring health and wellness to every household, to every person that I meet, to touch the lives of all that I encounter everyday. It is to empower people to not only take charge but also to educate about the ease of swapping household goods for practical & sustainable wellness. My ‘Why‘ is to bring them opportunities to attain financial freedom.

And this requires me to be ‘out there’ in the world bringing the message across. I am not a public speaker – I have never been. I call on the guidance of the universe to show me my next step, to show me how to reach people. Often, I have no clue or idea where to go next but always, the next step shows up. Sometimes, not in the timeline I have in mind, and therefore requires me to trust and have faith.

I always have an oil that supports me through my journey . Believe EO is one of them. When I apply oils, I often set intentions. I apply Believe on my forehead and my brain stem. believe-oil

I will intentionally release any emotions that are not serving me and invite in Belief, Trust and Faith in my journey. And it works. Believe EO is a blend. You can read more about it here.
