How to Calm Your Fear

By Jodi Cohen

We are currently living in an environment where fear is running rampant. Fear of socially connecting with friends or loved ones.  Fear of leaving our homes and interacting without masks or gloves.  Fear of returning to normal life.

Ironically, this virus seems to feed on fear.  Fear shifts your body into the “fight or flight” sympathetic branch of your nervous system where immune function turns off.  Fear also triggers the release of stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline that signal opportunistic pathogens that your immune system is compromised which then triggers the growth of more virulent bacteria which quickly multiply contributing to illness and disease.

Fear is also a low vibration emotion which then feeds low vibration viruses, allowing them to mutate more quickly and cause more damage.  The more you are able to calm your fear and focus on positive heart centered emotions like love and joy, the more you prevent the virus from taking hold in your body. Viruses are low vibrational entities that thrive in negative energy, but are not compatible with higher vibrations.

Essential oils offer the easiest way to raise your vibration so the virus will may never affect you.


What is Vibration?

The human body has an electrical frequency that correlates with your health, according to Dr. Robert O. Becker, in his book The Body Electric.

Like your physical body, everything in the universe is made of energy that vibrates at different frequency levels. This includes seemingly solid objects like rocks and plants are made up of constantly moving energy that is organized by waveforms and frequencies.

Your thoughts and emotions have frequencies as well.  The rate these frequencies vibrate at is called a vibration.  Negative emotions like fear and anger have fairly low frequencies and bring your vibration down.  Positive emotions like joy, hope and love have a higher frequency and raise your vibration.

He placed water over positive words like “love,” “angel,” or “appreciation,” then crystallized it and observed light, beautiful icy patterns. He repeated the experiment using negative words like “hate,” or “kill” and the resulting crystals associated with negative energies produced dark, ugly, malformed crystals.

Our bodies are 60% water, and it is likely that our emotional energy is affecting our systems in the same way.  This is one reason it is important to try integrate positive energy practices, like gratitude, into your life and release emotional energy, like fear and anger so that it does not remain inside your body where emotions become trapped and negatively impact your health.  Disease means without ease.  Shifting your emotional state and raising your vibrational frequency is the easiest way to restore a sense of sense and health to your mind and body.

Electrical frequencies can be measured. Bruce Tainio of Tainio Technology used a highly sensitive sensor, Tainio measured the voltage of frequency waves that travel out from a source and transfer energy to objects it passes through, using the measurement of megahertz (MHz).  One cycle per second is measured as one hertz (Hz), and 1 MHz is equal to 1 million Hz.

Tainio found that a healthy human body vibrates in the range of 62 to 68 MHz and human cells can start to change (mutate) when their frequency drops below 62MHz.  In other words, when your frequency drops below the optimum healthy range, your immune system is compromised.

Illness and viruses have a lower frequency.  For example, a cold or the flu lowers the body frequency to 58 MHz, candida drops your frequency to 55MHz and the Epstein-Barr virus drops your frequency to 52 MHz.  42 MHz is the frequency of a body when cancer sets in.  When the death process begins – the frequency has been measured at 20 MHz.

These findings were corroborated by Dr. Royal R. Rife who conducted research with a “frequency generator” machine that applies currents of specific frequencies to the body. Rife concluded that every disease has a specific frequency and every cell, tissue and organ has its own vibratory resonance. He found that specific frequencies would destroy viruses. Rife found that certain frequencies could prevent the development of disease, and that others would neutralize disease.


Raising Vibration Restores Health

Vibrational imbalances often precede illness or disease.  In fact, researcher Nikola Tesla said that, if we could eliminate certain outside frequencies that interfered in our bodies, we would have greater resistance toward disease.

Pathogens have a low frequency. Pollutants, including EMFs or processed food, can lower your frequency. Physical or emotional stress, or low vibrational thoughts and emotions, are often the culprits that throw your frequency out of tune.

These thoughts and feelings have a vibratory quality that forms a measurable frequency and a negative mental state can lower a person’s frequency. Tainio found that negative thoughts lower our frequency by 12 MHz. These electromagnetic imbalances can alter the vibrational frequencies of cells, tissues and organs within the body that set the stage for physical and chemical imbalances.

When you restore your body to its natural frequency, it brings your body into balance and restores its natural harmonic resonance – illness either doesn’t manifest or is resolved. Raising your frequency with positive thoughts – which raise your frequency by 10 MHz – or high frequency essential oils make you incompatible with lower frequency pathogens or viruses.

Similarly, positive substances, like essential oils or thought and emotional patterns can raise your frequencies.  A substance with a higher frequency can raise a lower frequency due to the principle of entrainment – the tendency for two oscillating bodies to lock into phase so that they vibrate in harmony. This principle is key to understanding the effect essential oils can have on our personal electromagnetic frequency.

Dr. Richard Gerber MD, author of Vibrational Medicine, notes that one of the best ways to shift dysfunctional patterns in our energy bodies is to administer therapeutic doses of “frequency-specific subtle energy in the form of vibrational medicines”, like essential oils.


How Essential Oils Raise Your Vibration

Naturally occurring substances –including essential oils and crystals – have coherent frequencies that resonate harmoniously with the electrical field of the human body. Essential oils help you restore your body back to its original natural harmonic resonance. Think of it as a reboot to factory settings.

Every living thing has a slightly different life force signature, called a vibrational resonance or a frequency. This includes plants. Plants and humans share the same three primary elements – carbon, hydrogen and oxygen.  This shared chemistry makes essential oils highly compatible with human biochemistry. Essential oils are also lipid-soluble with a protein-like structure similar to human cells, making them even more compatible with human cells and tissues.

Since plant frequencies, and the frequencies of the essential oils these plants yield, are bio-familiar with human frequencies, the oils can be combined to match frequency of healthy organs and balance them

By applying an essential oil with a particular frequency to the human body – through the principle of entrainment – the oil’s higher frequency will raise the vibratory quality of that individual. For example, Rose had the highest frequency at 320 MHz, followed by Lavender at 118 MHz and Blue Chamomile at 105 MHz, according to Tainio.

When several oils are blended together, each having a different MHz frequency, a frequency will emerge that may be higher or lower than the various components. The therapeutic properties create special vibrational remedies capable of healing or rebalancing the body/mind/soul/spirit.

Just as each organs and body systems has its own specific frequency, each oil has a specific frequency that has an affinity for enhancing and supporting specific organs and body systems.

What’s more, essential oils in the higher frequency ranges can influence and support positive emotions, like love and joy. Essential oils don’t resonate with the toxins in our bodies. This incompatibility is what helps eliminate the toxins from our systems. Neither do they resonate with negative emotions. So they can help dislodge forgotten traumas by surfacing them in our consciousness where we can deal with them and let them go.

Tainio’s research shows that essential oils have the highest frequency of any natural substance.  Topically applying or inhaling essential oils creates an environment in which disease, bacteria, or viruses cannot live. 


Raising Your Heart Vibration

Your Heart helps power positive emotions and express your highest vibration emotion which is love.  Love is the highest energetic frequency that exists both within you and outside or you.  Your heart is where you access your deepest love and passions, insights and understanding.  When you operate from the standpoint of love you are in alignment with the vibration of health and life itself.

When balanced, your heart responds appropriately to the environment with balance, integrity, love, optimism and wisdom.   When out of balance, emotional Imbalances can present, including excessive sadness, irrational behaviors, hysteria, joylessness, apathy, a dull state of being, emotional distress, confusion, feeling out of control, or manic behavior.   Imbalanced heart energy can also present as physical Imbalances like heart palpitations, anxiety, dizziness, fainting spells, shortness of breath, or lack of vitality.

Your heart emits more electrical activity than the brain.  The electrical field around the heart is 60 times greater in amplitude than the activity around the brain and an electromagnetic field 5,000 times stronger that of the brain.  Essential oils, like  Heart™ blend, can be used to support a larger, stronger field around your heart. Essential oils also help support your physical heart health.

Heart™ blend is formulated with Neroli, Spruce, Roman Chamomile, Blue Tansy, and Jasmine which are known to help support heart energy and love.

Blue Tansy:

This calming, soothing oil is known to calm anxiety and support emotional issues like nerves, anxiety, stress and even cases of mild depression.


Known to soothe the heart, improve mood, overcome stress and balance hormones. Research suggests that jasmine oil positively influences the nervous system, lifts depression and anxiety and soothes emotional stress. Jasmine can help support the heart, by regulating heart rate, blood pressure and breathing. Jasmine oil also known as a natural aphrodisiac for its libido-boosting and mood elevating qualities, capable of increasing physical signs of arousal — such as breathing rate, body temperature, blood oxygen saturation, and systolic and diastolic blood pressure.


One of the top oils for opening the heart, balancing emotions and uplifting your mood. It is known to instill comfort and strength, encourage the release of repressed emotions foster forgiveness.

Roman Chamomile:

A natural anti-histamine, noted for its soothing effects and anti-inflammatory properties. Research found it helps balance and inhibit excessive histamine responses.


Supports the nervous and glandular systems. Works great as a general tonic. It is mentally grounding, helps balance the solar plexus, stimulate the heart, and helps release anxiety and stress.


Other essential oils known to benefit the heart include:

Rose™ has the highest frequency of all essential oils. It opens the heart chakra and allows you to feel unconditional love. It helps to calm your mind, create a sense of well-being and enhance your capacity for self-love, self-compassion and self-nurturing.  It can also help to clear negative energy, promote positive connection and unconditional love and the support to release emotional wounds.

Lavender™ supports your ability to listen to your heart. Lavender helps to release fear and restore balance and inner peace.  It can help calm strong emotions, release pent up energy, and allow you to relax, let go of the stress response, and release fear. In this relaxed state you can connect with the heart center and open up to more love.  It also supports connecting to your true self as well as bringing buried emotions, thoughts and feelings to the surface (and therefore enabling you to release them and let them go)


How to Apply Your Heart Oils

Heart supporting essential oils can be applied directly over your heart (over your sternum between the breasts, closer to the left side of your chest).

The air element is associated with your heart chakra, so inhaling the blend or spritzing a few drops in the air or adding to an Epsom salt bath can help the love and heart energy flow.
