Raise Your Frequency

My friend Shannon gifted me this beautiful bracelet. It’s made of Rhodonite, Rhodochrosite, and Sandalwood. Aside from being absolutely gorgeous, the Sandalwood beads are porous and absorb essential oil, making it a perfect diffuser bracelet.

The oil I chose today is called Gratitude. This oil blend is designed to elevate the spirit, calm emotions and foster a grateful attitude. I really like the sound of elevating the spirit.

I’m slowly learning (I know, I’m a little late to the party on this one) that thoughts are energy, and this energy radiates from us into the world around us. Every thought we have creates a frequency that becomes part of our personal energy field.

The higher our frequency, the LIGHTER we feel — physically, emotionally and mentally. And the more positive things we draw into our life. Think about it. Who are you more drawn to? Someone who is negative and critical; or someone who radiates joy and peace? When it comes to energy, like attracts like. So, if we’re living at high frequencies, we’ll attract people, circumstances and things that are also high frequency.

The good news is, there are lots of ways to increase our frequency. Certainly things like meditation and yoga. But there are also fun, practical ones like:
* Listening to music, singing and dancing
* Spending time with animals
* Being out in nature
* Laughing
* Hugging
* Practicing gratitude (hence the oil choice)

Another easy way to increase our frequency is to use pure essential oils. Clinical research shows that pure essential oils have the highest frequencies of any measured natural substance. Oils such as rose, helichrysum, frankincense and Idaho blue spruce are especially high, but all essential oils will increase our frequency.

Raise your frequency, feel lighter.

I’m going to go hug my dog now.

Simple and Satisfying Brownies for One

Do you ever just want a warm fresh brownie-for-one? Usually about 10pm, while you’re watching your favourite show, curled up under a blanket — with or without a glass of red?

My daughter came up with this genius hack. Make a batch of rich, fudgy homemade brownie batter and keep it in the fridge (uncooked). When you are craving a warm home-baked brownie, scoop some into a mug and pop it in the microwave for about a minute. BOOM! Instant chocolatey goodness.

Here’s our favourite brownie recipe. It’s simple and satisfying. And if you’re feeling fancy, you can doctor it up with a handful of chocolate chips, nuts, or our fave — a few drops of Peppermint essential oil.

FUDGE BROWNIES

1/2 cup butter

2 ounces unsweetened chocolate

2 eggs

1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

Optional add-ins:

1/2 cup chopped nuts or chocolate chips

4 drops pure Peppermint essential oil

 

In a medium saucepan, melt butter and chocolate over low heat. Remove from heat. Stir in eggs, sugar, and vanilla (and optional Peppermint essential oil). Using a wooden spoon, beat lightly until just combined. Stir in flour (and optional nuts or chocolate chips).

Store in a covered container in the fridge. When a craving strikes, scoop out about a 1/2 cup into a mug, and microwave for about a minute. ENJOY!

** added bonus: pure Peppermint essential oil soothes upset stomach, so if you eat too many brownies… you are covered!

 

Being a happy mama sometimes takes a little help

This is my daily perfume. It’s got a permanent place in my purse, and I often gift it to friends. Because with three kids, two dogs and all the stuff a person needs to deal with on a regular basis, sometimes I need a little … uh … help staying in the best mood, and figure my friends could sometimes use a little help too.

If you’ve found something great, don’t keep it to yourself!
