Stress is your body's way of responding to any kind of demand or threat. When you sense danger—whether it's real or imagined—the body's defenses kick into high gear in a rapid, automatic process known as the “fight-or-flight” reaction or thestress response. Most of the time this "demand" tends to be self-created. The way to release stress is to count your facts, remove what was self-imposed and trust. Trust that the most insignificant details connect, that there is always a lesson or a reason and relax into the unknown. Becuase you might not know but the universe does, can you trust your creator?
Below you will find quick hacks to get you moving. Read, search, play - - take what you need! The important thing is that you allow yourself to shift, even if it is a teeny-weeny shift in perspective, in your thinking, in your feeling. Shifts are subtle ways to seeing things from a different perspective, acquire some self-love, self-compassion, and harness the strength to keep on going. That is why they say that the tinnies shift of them all can actually move mountains. So before we go any further ...stop, take a deep breath, change your frequency, & carry on!
In a few minutes, this simple yet very powerful breathing technique will create a deep sense of well-being and harmony on a physical, mental, and emotional level. It is integrating, grounding, soothing, calming and energizing simultaneously, and balances the right and left hemispheres
of your brain.
The energy of the nervous system is directly proportional to one's breathing. Your right nostril is your sun nostril (masculine, yang, and warmth). It controls your energy levels, alertness, and activity. Your left nostril is your lunar nostril (feminine, yin, giving, and cool). It controls your emotions.
When we balance both hemispheres of the brain we create balance. When we feel balanced we become creative, and when we feel creative we feel empowered to lead others to do the same.
Listen to this beautiful mantra for peace and ease.

We have these powerful beautiful tools on our shop and on every current mood tab because they have such a profound effect on our bodies and our mood (aka, your frequency). Our mind follows our breath, but let’s be honest, life is tough and sometimes it’s hard to change your perception or limiting believes, no matter how much breathing you do! That said it’s not the only way! You can actually change your mind by adjusting the chemistry of your body. Then the mind has no other option but to melt into the incredible sensations that your body is feeling, surrendering to a relaxed and neutral state of mind. Allowing you to find clarity, connect back to love and in the end find peace with it all.

Using essential oils stimulates the olfactory system, the part of the brain connected to smell, including the nose and the brain. Once aromas are registered, scent travels faster to the brain than both sight or sound. Molecules that enter the nose or mouth pass to the lungs, and from there, to other parts of the body. Sending signals to the limbic system which is a part of your brain that plays a role in emotions, behaviors, sense of smell and long-term memory.
The limbic system is heavily involved in forming memories. This can partly explain why familiar smells can trigger memories or emotions. The limbic system also plays a role in controlling some unconscious physiological functions, such as breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure. Essential oils can exert a physical effect on your body in this way. Some of the health benefits of aromatherapy include its ability to reduce anxiety, ease depression, boost energy levels, speed up the healing process, eliminate headaches, boost cognitive performance, induce sleep, strengthen the immune system, reduce pain, improve digestion and increase circulation. So there, why not use these beauties, when your thoughts seem to run around rent-free in your mind?
