10 Benefits Of Essential Thymol, Thyme Oil
Delta brain waves are the slowest brain waves that the human mind generates, and they occur at frequencies of 4 Hz or less.
Delta brainwaves dominate during deep sleep. It is during this deepest state of complete relaxation that your body heals itself, and resets its internal clock. The delta state is a dreamless, completely unconscious sleep state that allows your body and brain to rest and repair. Without it, you could not survive!
By listening to sleep music that contains delta frequency binaural beats, you can stimulate the production of delta frequencies in your brain. This is one of the most effective ways to encourage your mind to release itself from the overactive waking state and enter into the sleep state.
The beauty of specialized music is to heal the body on a sleeping or awakened state!

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
The Emotional Freedom Technique, or EFT, is a psychological acupressure technique. It is a form of psychological acupressure, based on the same energy meridians used in traditional acupuncture to treat physical and emotional ailments for over five thousand years, but without the invasiveness of needles. Instead, simple tapping with the fingertips is used to input kinetic energy onto specific meridians on the head and chest while you think about your specific problem - whether it is a traumatic event, an addiction, pain, etc. -- and voice positive affirmations. Heres a video with Brad Yates that will help you Tap into Vibrant Health
Did you know exercising a few times a week can help boost your immunity? We’ve all heard that exercise or movement can help bring the body into balance, but how exactly does it help the immune system? Here are a few theories:
Let us empower ourselves and others by remembering our visions and goals in life. Whether it be a short term goal, or long term goal. To help get to these goals or get a better vision of them, we have to first rid our minds of any limiting beliefs by subconsciously saying affirmations repeatedly. Affirmations are powerful messages that builds faith and confidence, as well as create your reality. Saying powerful and positive messages to yourself will change the patterns of your thoughts and allow your mind to better align itself with those positive messages. Allow yourself to flourish by saying positive affirmations. You become what you think about most of the time, so why not think about what you want to become, talk about it, and be about it. Affirmations work, whether or not you believe the words you are saying. In my experience, some how you begin to believe it. As I began to believe it, I tweaked it to suit me. I added what else I wanted to believe until every single word became my exact goal.
Affirmations are sometimes best done one at a time. The more you focus on one goal at a time, the faster is will manifest into your life. Also keep it simple until you feel comfortable with complex affirmations. I like simple ones that I can repeat all day, or when ever I feel down.
If my mood changes and I want to pull myself out of a funk I remind myself..."I am peace, I am joy, I am light, I am love, I am kind, I am honorable, I am honest, I am amazing, I am unique, I am strong, I am Herbalist, I am wife, I am teacher, I am mother...." As I repeat these words, I remind myself of who and where I am in life, as well as add what I aspire to me. Often times I'll add the opposite of what caused me to be momentarily sad.
You are well on your way to having better control of your thoughts, mood, life, and all that you attract into it.
