'Law of attractions says, "That which is like unto itself is drawn." Vibrations are always matched. So, as you experience the contrast which inspires the new desire, whether it is a strong one or a soft one, is summoned unto itself proportionately. And as it summons, it is always answered. It is the basis of our universe: When it is asked, it is always given. ~ ’
why we do what we do..
One of the most important components of the law of attraction is the vibration of your emotions, or the frequency of your ‘energy in motion’. The law of attraction states that whatever energy that you put out is the same energy that will be mirrored back to you in the form of experiential reality. You will understand that your state of being is what actually materializes your inner experiences into being. Thus, the energy in motion (vibration) that you think and feel emanate and project a frequency form you that determines the type of energy that you get back. In other words, your mood and state will create the overall mood and state of whatever you experience.
Vibration is a paramount part of the law of attraction which says, “That which is like unto itself is drawn.” This is not “woo-woo” science. According to quantum physics, everything is vibration. All is energy. Energy is vibration. Therefore, everything emits a certain vibrational frequency. You can't get away from it. Every feeling that you have resonates with a particular vibrational frequency. These vibrations exist on a scale, high to low.
Emotions such as appreciation, joy and excitement are high vibrational frequencies. Feelings such as anger, frustration and guilt have a low vibrational frequency. Vibrations are always matched. Therefore, by holding a high vibration, you are placing yourself at the same frequency of high vibration experiences. Thereby inviting similar high vibration experiences to come into your awareness. Alternately, if you constantly hold a lower vibrational emotion such as anger or frustration, then you are more likely to attract more of the same into your life. This is why those people who are often angry are known for being predominately angry people. They have set their vibrational tone to that of anger. As a result, their energy in motion vibrates within the frequency of anger and they experience more of the same.
They key to living a life of happiness and joy is to be very mindful of your vibration. Regardless of where you sit on the emotional scale right now, thinking of the world in terms of vibration is a very powerful way to increase your ability to create more positive outcomes in your life. One of the fastest and most effective ways of changing vibrational frequencies is by using essential oils.
Maybe you have never tried essential oils, and you’re wondering if they really work. Or, maybe you’ve been enjoying the positive effects of aromatherapy using essential oils, and you’re wondering how they work. Numerous scientific studies have shown that essential oils offer benefits far beyond just “smelling good”—they have the power to work with the chemistry of your body to promote well-being on physical, emotional, and psychological levels. Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids that are either extracted or distilled from the blossoms, leaves, roots, fruits, peels, seeds, or bark of plants. Unlike fatty oils, essential oils are sometimes called “volatile” because they evaporate quickly, releasing their smell. They are different from synthetically produced “fragrance” oils, which are less expensive, but also lack the natural healing properties offered by 100% pure essential oils. Essential oils can be inhaled, ingested (under the guidance of an experienced medical practitioner), or applied topically (when mixed with a neutral carrier oil). Essential oils have powerful properties, and if they are not diluted properly when ingested or applied to the skin, they could have irritating or even toxic effects. This is one reason that many people choose the safe, effective method of inhaling the oils, also known as aromatherapy.
Aromatherapy has been proven to work: multiple studies indicate that inhaling certain essential oils including lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), lemon (Citrus limonum), sweet orange (Citrus sinensis), and bergamot (Citrus bergamia) consistently relieves stress, anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders (Lv et al, 2013). One study showed that inhalation of cinnamon bark (Cinnamomum cassia), thyme (Thymus vulgaris), and lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) essential oils was effective in suppressing bacterial growth for respiratory infections (Inouyea et al., 2000). Yet another study showed that eucalyptus oil (Eucalyptus globulus) not only exhibited antimicrobial and antibacterial effects, but also boosted the white blood cell count in participants with other respiratory conditions, helping to strengthen their immune responses (Sadlon et al., 2010). How can inhaling essential oils have such powerful effects? The answer lies in the effects of smell on the brain. The olfactory system, which processes our sense of smell, is closely related to a part of the brain known as the limbic system. The limbic system consists of three main parts: the hippocampus, the hypothalamus, and the amygdala.
When we smell an essential oil, its odour molecules are diffused into the air. These molecules travel from the nose to the olfactory epithelium, on the roof of the nasal cavity. Here, the odour molecules bind to proteins called odour receptors, which then produce an electrical impulse directly to the olfactory cortex in the limbic system. From the olfactory cortex, the brain projects messages to other parts of the limbic system that can stimulate nervous system responses, affect memory, and influence emotional reactions (Swenson, 2006). The hippocampus is involved in corticosteroid production, spatial navigation, and short- and long-term memory, including both factual (explicit) and emotional (implicit) memories.
Ever had a smell transport you to a memory from years ago? Through this part of the brain, aromatherapy can help you to access your factual and emotional memory, as well as build new patterns of positive experiences based on a particular smell. Corticosteroids regulate various bodily functions including immunity, inflammation, and metabolism. By sending messages from the olfactory cortex, aromatherapy is able to influence the function of this part of the brain. The hypothalamus partially governs the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system responses, also known as the “rest and digest” and “fight or flight” responses. These responses affect blood pressure, heart rate, digestion, arousal, and sleeping/waking states. Different scents can either activate the sympathetic response, which would increase focus and decrease appetite; or, they can stimulate the parasympathetic response, which lowers blood pressure, aids digestion, and increases relaxation.
One study found that the inhalation of stimulating essential oils, such as pepper (Piper nigrum), estragon (Artemisia dracunculus), and grapefruit (Citrus paradisi), increased sympathetic activity by 1.5-2.5%, while calming essential oils including rose (Rosa damascena) and patchouli (Pogostemon cablin) decreased sympathetic activity by 40% (Haze et al., 2002). The hypothalamus also monitors the endocrine system, which keeps the body’s hormones in balance. The main functions of this system are appetite and sexuality. Signals to this part of the brain allow aromatherapy to increase or suppress the appetite, to act as an aphrodisiac, to lower blood pressure and heart rate, and to balance hormonal levels. The olfactory system also inputs directly to the amygdala, a part of the brain that coordinates emotional responses to the environment. It also integrates behavioural reactions related to survival, especially stress and anxiety. Some scientists believe that lavender essential oil stimulates the amygdala in a way similar to some sedative medications (Ehrlich, 2011). By sending messages to the limbic system, aromatherapy has the potential to affect—and even alter—many aspects of our emotions, physical responses, and mental functions. Essential oils are very powerful, so it’s important to know their different properties before using them. For example, in one study participants who inhaled valerian oil (Valeriana officinalis) slept for longer, whereas the stimulating lemon essential oil caused a sleep-shortening effect (Komori et al., 2006). Nearly everyone agrees that essential oils smell delightful—but science proves that if you use them right, they can also empower you to improve your health, happiness, and well-being.
