Most of us are familiar with the saying, "Raise your vibes!" Quite frankly, I have always translated this to mean "Be positive" or "Don't worry, be happy!" And in part, that's true. There are many ways to raise your vibration, but one of the quickest and most effective ways is by inhaling therapeutic grade essential oils.
So, what does all this "raise your vibes" really mean?
Why do we care?
And how do we do it?
Turns out that everything from a rock to a human body is made up of constantly moving energy. This energy is organized by waveforms and frequencies. The rate of frequency at which a rock or human body vibrates is called its vibration, and is measured in MHz.
A healthy human body is around 7 MHz
almonds 50 MHz
broccoli 70 MHz
cooked hamburger around 3 to 5 MHz
processed or canned food around 0 MHz.
So, why do we care about raising our vibes? The reason is because raising and lowering our vibrations effect our mind, body, and spirit. Our natural state of being is one of high vibes (vibration) and positively impacts us.
Conversely, factors such as negative thoughts, processed food, and environmental toxins can lower our vibes and adversely effect us:
Human cells can start to mutate when their frequency drops below 62 MHz.
A cold or flu starts to set in at 58 MHz.
At 42 MHz, cancer can appear.
The death process begins around 20 MHz.
See where I'm going?
Not only can we raise our vibes, but we can keep our frequencies high.
Remember, disease starts when our frequencies drop below 62 MHz. Crisis, disturbing news, relationship issues, worry...you name it! Something is always bringing our frequencies down, but we can raise our vibes several ways.
Positive thoughts and words, meditation, prayer, and inhaling essential oils can all raise our vibes.
Positive thoughts 72-78 MHz
meditation 77-83 MHz.
Lavender oil 118 MHz
Frankincense oil 147 MHz
Rose oil 320 MHz.
Of course, we're talking about therapeutic grade oils here. By the way, most Young Living blends vibrate at around 80 MHz in case you were wondering.
So here's how oils can raise your frequency: the scent is inhaled through the nose and sent directly to the brain, (in particular, to the limbic system) which is the center for emotions and emotional behavior. Mood enhancers like serotonin and endorphins get released. Almost immediately (depending on the oil), you may begin to feel more alert, calm, relaxed, or happy. You may feel the release of negative emotions and soothing of tension or anxiety.
Fatigue, low energy, non-motivation, anxiety, emotional pain, depression, loneliness, poor memory and concentration, stress, low self-esteem. fear, grief and sadness, anger irritability... there's a oil that can help! A myriad of essential oils such as Bergamont Blue Tanzy, Clary Sage, Lemon, as well as others are frequently used by world-wide clinics, hospitals, and therapists.
Smell may very well be the most awesome of the senses! Our sense of smell is 10000 times more powerful that the other senses. Better yet, the recognition of smell is almost immediate. (The other senses such as touch have to travel up the spinal cord to the brain to be processed. Remember, smell travels straight to the brain.) Smell is the strongest link to the emotional subconscious mind and also to the collective unconscious mind where memories are stored... but that's a story for another day.
The WHO (World Health Organization), The Mental Health Foundation, and a long list of others confirm that our emotional, mental, and physical health are interconnected. All it takes is a few drops of theraputic grade oil on diffuser jewelry, in a roller, rubbed on neck after mixing with a carrier oil, added to the bath water, or diffused... we can do that!
Let's raise our vibes!
