  2. improve your brain function and memory
  3. increase your productivity and creativity
  4. decrease stress
  5. reduce anxiety
  6. improve your immune system
  7. decrease inflammation

How much would you be willing to pay for this magic pill?

Well the good news is that the pill is free! But it is not a pill to swallow, it is called meditation. In exchange for paying money and going to the pharmacy for refills, you commit to taking 15 to 20 minutes each morning and evening for some quiet time for yourself.  This small investment in your time is well worth the effort.

How your thoughts and emotions influence your health

Everything is energy.

This is a simple statement with profound implications. Everything in the universe is made up of atoms and molecules, contains information and vibrates at a certain frequency. But most of us go about our daily lives not really thinking about the fact they we are energetic beings with a human energy field (EF) surrounding us. After all, we feel solid. We have bones, muscles, organs, glands and blood flowing through our arteries and veins. But we are 100% energy – just like animals, plants, rocks, mountains, buildings, and books. Even your thoughts and emotions are a form of energy. Positive emotions like love and joy have a high vibration and negative emotions like fear, guilt, anger and self-doubt have a low vibration.

Why is this important to know?
Energy flows and attracts and is influenced by other energy. It is well documented that stress is linked to disease. We are bombarded each day with negative energy such as news stories about violence and war, pollution, stress at work, your own negative belief systems, addictions and even poor diet choices.
