Researchers at Mindlab International in the U.K. wanted to know what kind of music induces the greatest state of relaxation. The study involved having participants try to solve difficult puzzles — which inherently triggered a certain degree of stress — while connected to sensors. At the same time, participants listened to a range of songs as researchers measured their brain activity, heart rate, blood pressure and rate of breathing.
What they found is that one song, "Weightless", resulted in a striking 65 percent reduction in participants' overall anxiety, and a 35 percent reduction in their usual physiological resting rates. Interestingly, the song was specifically designed to induce this highly relaxed state. Created by Marconi Union, the musicians teamed up with sound therapists to carefully arrange harmonies, rhythms and bass lines, which in turn slow a listener's heart rate and blood pressure, while also lowering stress hormones like cortisol.
In fact, the music is so effective, that many of the female participants became drowsy--to the point where lead researcher Dr. David Lewis-Hodgson advises against listening to it while driving. But don't take their word for it. Experience it for yourself here.

Recognizing and Handling Energy Vampires
Have you ever felt exhausted, bored, irritated, stressed, anxious, threatened, overwhelmed or depressed, all at the same time, after just a few moments in the company of a person? He or she may be an energy vampire who can have a bad influence on you. Like movie vampires, these are the negative people who are incapable of generating positive energy. Hence they feed off the energy of others.
"Energy vampires are emotionally immature individuals who have the sense that the whole world revolves around them. They are almost incapable of seeing things from another person's perspective. They often lack empathy, and believe that they must take everything they can get from others and that giving anything will deprive them of essential resources," says Sophie Henshaw, a leading clinical psychologist.
Interact less with such people - Try to interact less with people who have negative thoughts or who are surrounded with negative environment. Not only does the thinking of the people matter but their ambience also leaves an after effect on each person's personality.
Respond, not react - Responding to the energy vampire helps to overcome the stress due to the negative approach to life by the other person. Avoid judgement in favor of allowance.
Do not accuse directly - Directly accusing a hypocrite of not practicing what he preaches is useless, as that will only make them go defensive. Rather try to divert the attention back onto you or someone else.
Keep your cool - Usually such energy vampires are very sensitive to others' anger or disapproval. Even if they irk you a lot, maintain your inner peace.
Affirm your self-worth - You are more than what they make you to be. Ignore energy vampires and spend quality time with people who cheer you up and bring out the best in you.
Just let it go - If you cannot avoid them, take a deep breath and let it go. Don't take their words to heart and let them spoil your day. If you let them leech your energy, they will.
QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: Our Clean Sweep negative energy neutralizing mist is perfect to use around energy vampires. Just spray the room you share with them, and watch their change in behavior. They may just leave, or stop interacting altogether. Clean Sweep neutralizes a wide spectrum of negative energies from EMF to negative human emotions.
Language and Time Travel
The language we speak can help us see the future. That's the premise of the alien language in the movie Arrival--and it's a big deal. In Arrival, aliens arrive on Earth to talk to us, unlike typical alien invasion movies. A linguistics professor teaches the aliens English while learning their language. What the professor learns is that speaking the alien language re-shapes her brain to let her see into the future. Fictitious as that science sounds, language might really do that.
First, learning a language makes you smarter. That means your ability to switch focus between tasks, recall memories, and solve problems gets better by learning a language.
Second, time isn't really linear. In fact, according to neuroscientist David Eagleman, time is really just "your assessment of how long something took." George Musser verifies that in Scientific American, writing. "Our minds construct the past, present, and future. Memory researcher Endel Tulving, who called our ability to remember the past and to anticipate the future 'mental time travel.' He cites a 2007 study where participants were asked to remember something from their past and imagine a future scenario under an fMRI scan. The same areas of the brain lit up for both, meaning 'that memory is essential to constructing scenarios for ourselves in the future'."
Third, the language you speak shapes the culture around you. Or, as Discovery News puts it, "Language doesn't determine how you think, but it can determine how you think about things." That means people from different cultures diverge according to "patterns of metaphor" within language. Namely, different cultures emphasize different aspects of experience through the words they choose. Native Americans who speak Inuit and Yupik languages use different words to describe snow depending on its location, texture, movement and other factors. English speakers take the opposite approach, using the word "snow" to describe a myriad of weather conditions, textures, and chemical states.
Combine all of those factors and you've got a way of viewing the world that expands your brain, sees beyond the linear bounds of time, and re-creates your culture, as in Arrival.
QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: Our Trinity Gem Elixir, Deep Insight, amplifies perceptions of how language affects us emotionally and physiologically through time. The elixir facilitates self-awareness and analysis of interpretations and points of view of the past. It is very useful for processing self-judgments and the judgments of others.

Our Special E-3 Cream Free Trial Offer
Unlike aspirin and non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs that simply mask the pain, E-3 goes to work on the root of the problem and offers long-term benefits. When soft tissue is damaged the energy flow into this area is interrupted. This is one of the causes of pain. E-3 helps re-establish energy flow. As a result the pain signal stops and the healing process speeds up, increasing mobility and assisting in regenerating damaged soft tissue. If you are still skeptical, or if you are a long-term fan of E-3 and you want to show others what it can do, order a 2 oz. Trial Size bottle for FREE (plus shipping). Order more than one for even more savings!
