TECHNIQUES TO RAISE YOUR VIBRATION

Do you ever wonder if you are on the same page as the universe?  Somedays, it can be a struggle, but I would suggest not to go there, instead try to keep your positivity in check, by trying to raise your vibration.  Below is a How-To article that I picked up from Spiritual Health that gives you techniques to raise your vibration instantly!

**In an ideal world, you get to wake up every day feeling grounded and centered in your strongest emotional, mental, and spiritual state. In this world, reality is more complex than that. Whether it is due to an intense astrological event, an unpleasant personal experience, or an unexpected outside force, every once in a while you may find yourself feeling drained and not your best self. Fortunately, you are always in charge of your own experience and can turn this around momentarily when equipped with the right tools to raise your vibration.

When you feel yourself getting carried away by the life’s hectic energies, and you want to regain your center and raise your vibration or overall state of being fast, the following tools are here to help you.

Raise-your-vibration-gratitudeUSE GRATITUDE, LOVE, AND JOY | RAISE YOUR VIBRATION

Love for yourself, others, and the world around you is at the very top of the emotional scale. It is the highest of all of the positive emotions, and it is often grouped alongside of appreciation, compassion, joy, gratitude, and passion. There are no bad emotions on the emotional scale, the lower ones are there to provide you with valuable information as well as show you where you have been holding your focus. To change your focus instantly and raise your vibration, you should tune-in to the emotions that have the highest resonance: love, gratitude, and joy.

Three ways to align with these vibrations are:
-Say out loud three things that you are grateful for today to quickly shift to a state of gratitude. It matters not how big or small these things are, but rather how you feel about them. You can say that you are grateful to be alive and that the sun is shining above your head. You can be grateful for your loved ones. You can be grateful for that amazing and nutritious meal you had.
-Call someone you love and ask them about their day. Shifting the focus from you to other people is a sure way to get out of your own funk.
-Say or do something nice for a person next to you. This also shifts your focus towards other people, which is psychologically proven to instantly raise your mood. As a Chinese saying goes, “If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.”

Raise-Your-Vibration-FoodNOURISH YOUR BODY WITH FOOD

Nutritious food is a vital part of our day, and there is a balance to achieve. Just like eating processed junk food is bad for you, so is forcing yourself to eat otherwise healthy food that is simply not making you happy. Your goal is to keep trying new foods and recipes until you find what is equally beneficial for your body and joyful for your soul.

Quick tips to find balance in your culinary choices:
-Eat organic, raw food. It can be smoothies, juices, salads, or even healthy raw desserts from nuts and fruits. There is a lot to learn from the raw vegan diet and thousands of recipes to discover and try. There is something out there for everyone.
-Drink plenty of filtered water. This will help detox your body, which in turn will help you feel better and lighter.

LET YOURSELF RELAX AND REJUVENATE

A busy, cluttered mind can be a cause of much distress. The monkey brain, as psychologists call it, has the ability to create problems that do not exist through worrying about things that might never happen. Your goal is to gently and lovingly stop it. To do so, you can incorporate different healthy relaxation techniques.

Quick relaxation tips:
-Take a bath with Epsom salt to relax and detoxify the body. Try adding some essential oils to help soothe the mind as well.
-Choose a meditation that serves you at this moment. It can be silent or guided, or you may choose to do a walking meditation in a park or in nature.
-Do a short breathing exercise. One example is the 4-7-8 breath. To practice this type of breathing exercise, inhale with your nose for four seconds, hold your breath for 7 seconds, and exhale with your mouth for 8 seconds. Just doing this for a few minutes will help you feel more calm and centered.
-Say no to things that drain your energy; things that are not your responsibility and are often done only out of guilt or obligation. Choose how you spend your time and energy wisely.

Raise-Your-Vibration-TreeGET CLOSER TO NATURE

In Japan in the 1980s, scientists developed what they call Forest Therapy (also known as forest bathing). While for people who love nature this was not new, for the big city dwellers this was groundbreaking. This therapy is different from hiking, as the people participating do not have a particular destination in mind and are not in a hurry to get there. The idea behind this practice is to simply be inside nature, breathe it in, and once again feel that you are connected with the whole world. Many say that it helps see the world anew with all of its vibrant colors and amazing potential. If ever there was a perfect way to raise your vibration, this is it.

Tips for appreciating nature:
-Walk barefoot on the ground and lay on the grass.
-Find a tree that stands out to you and go next to it. Hug it or sit by its trunk and meditate.
-Unplug from all of your electronic devices for an hour or for a day.

START MOVING AND SHAKING

Your physical wellbeing is closely connected to your emotional state and is important to raise your vibration. Negative emotions and traumas can get physically stuck in parts of the body. This is why physical movement is so important; it can literally shake out the stuck energy that is not serving you. Getting physically moving also raises the endorphins, hormones responsible for many functions in the body. They also trigger positive emotions.

Quick tips to shake it up a bit:
-Go for a run or a brisk walk.
-Stretch or do yoga.
-Start dancing like no one is watching. Turn on the music that brings you joy and move in any way that feels right.**

Sleep Sounds to Help You Snooze

Sleep Sounds: Mug

Reruns of old Friends episodes, the pitter-patter of rainfall on a tin roof, classical music—there are countless sleep sounds people listen to when trying to hit the hay at night.

We all know that sleep is pretty darn important, but if you’re having a hard time falling asleep, consider some of the following popular sleep sound options to help you get a restful night’s sleep.

Calmsound

If you enjoy the gentle sound of waves breaking on the shore, check out Calmsound Nature Sounds. They provide a variety of both videos and albums that can be downloaded online or purchased through Amazon. The dreamy sounds of an Australian summer morning at Coogee Beach seriously had me bobbing my head at my desk as I listened. Sigh.

Sound of Sleep Machine

The Sound+Sleep machine provides you with a pretty wide range of realistic, natural sound environments. (Apparently, they really do use naturally recorded sounds like a bubbling brook or the sound of leaves blowing in the wind. Also, they claim to never loop, so you don’t have to worry about getting bored from repetition.)

This machine comes with a 3″ speaker that can easily fit on your nightstand. It also comes with a small headphone jack so you can kick back and relax without disturbing your partner. Or the neighbors upstairs. Or the cat. Meow.

Sleep Sounds Mobile App

Sleep Sounds: TableI legit just downloaded this app by Relaxio from the Google Play Store on my phone and have had an absolute ball listening to the different sounds. My favorite so far is “Vintage Train.” The cool part? You can set a timer anywhere from one minute to eight hours. You can also add in additional sounds, which makes it a very customized experience. (I added the sound of a rainstorm to the mix and the effect was magical. I felt like I was napping on the Hogwarts Express.)

For iOS, try a similar app called Relax Melodies: Sleep Sounds, White Noise & Fan.

Head Space

Have a stressful final to take in school or a presentation to give? Maybe you just need to chill out before going to bed? Try using Headspace. This app helps you connect with your body and mind through guided meditation. There are tons of benefits associated with meditating. In fact, one Harvard study shows that practicing mediation may actually help with sleep.

If you’d like to give mediation a whirl, Headspace has a meditation series specifically for sleep that helps create the inner and outer conditions for you to properly zonk out.

Breath in. Breathe out. Now sleep.

Spotify

Even your Spotify account has some awesome sleep sound options. If you’re in the mood for quiet music, you can listen to some calming acoustic guitar solos, some fun Indian music, or even peaceful flute music. If you prefer nature sounds, crawl under your covers, turn on your shuffle, and get ready to enjoy the pleasant sounds of a rainforest storm.

From A to Zzz

These aren’t the only solutions for sleep—there are tons of mobile apps designed to help you sleep better tonight. Discover your favorite go-to sleep sounds for a night of blissful rest. And if all else fails, there’s also a little something called Pure Rest.*

Well my friend, are you ready to get some sleep? Tell Little Bo Beep to grab her sheep—you won’t be counting them anymore.

Yoga essential oils dōTERRA Align Chemistry

Yogacollection

  Introduction
Have you ever felt disconnected or unable to control your circumstances? Aromatherapy coupled with some simple centering yoga poses can help create a new sense of peace and purpose, leading to a renewal of resolution. Scientific research has shown that meditation during yoga together with aromatherapy is a combination of remarkable synergy, showing powerful effects on human emotions.1 With centering properties in mind, doTERRA scientists worked with yoga specialist Elena Brower to develop doTERRA Align Centering Blend. doTERRA Align’s aroma—especially in combination with centering yoga exercises such as Warrior II, Triangle, and Gate—is perfect for helping you trust in yourself, feel relaxed, and stay engaged.
Composition
The ingredients in doTERRA Align were chosen primarily to create a centering aroma. Bergamot, Coriander, and Marjoram are the primary oils in this blend. Peppermint, Geranium, Basil, Rose, Jasmine, and Fractionated Coconut Oil are also included, although in smaller amounts, to create a sophisticated and beautiful aroma.

  • Bergamot essential oil has been studied for a variety of benefits related to mental and emotional health.*3-11 The aroma of Bergamot is calming and uplifting, while also capable of reducing feelings of emotional negativity and stress.12-17 It exerts its effects by calming the autonomic nervous system and reducing physiological parameters related to agitation and stress.17
  • Coriander, called the “spice of happiness” by the ancient Egyptians, was thought to be an aphrodisiac.18 Historically, the aroma of Coriander essential oil has been used for its calming and relaxing properties.19 New scientific research supports these findings.20
  • Marjoram is another essential oil that may have relaxing benefits.21 Human clinical research suggests that a massage using Marjoram essential oil may help to relieve tense muscles.22
  • Fractionated Coconut Oil contains short chain fatty acids that moisturize the skin, leaving it smooth and soft. It helps balance the blend and prevent sensitive skin reactions after topical use.
  • The remaining oils in this blend, BasilGeraniumJasminePeppermint, and Rose, each contribute to a great diversity of constituents that work together to create a floral, herbaceous scent.

GC-MS analysis shows that the largest fraction of doTERRA Align is composed of natural octyl esters and octyl aldehydes, namely octen-3-yl acetate, octanal, and octen-1-al. These compounds are widely used in perfumery and fragrance design. Octanal is a unique compound because of its powerful and pleasant fragrance. It is the most potent activator of OR17, one specific type of olfactory receptor responsible for sensing fragrant aldehyde compounds.2

The other main compounds present in doTERRA Align are linalool, linalyl acetate, and sabinene hydrate (also known as thujanol), although these are found in smaller amounts. Linalool and linalyl acetate are known to be relaxing compounds, having centering effects when present in moderate quantities. For instance, experimental research suggests that diffusing linalool may help to promote feelings of calmness and relaxation.23-24

How to Use
Whenever you are feeling apathetic and unfocused, diffuse doTERRA Align or use it topically in conjunction with a yoga routine. doTERRA Align is a neat oil, meaning that dilution is not necessary for safe application.
