Your Unique Vibration

Your Unique Vibration ~ The Attitude Revolution

A gorgeous comrade contacted me recently with the following question…

“Ever since buying your meditones and falling head over heels in love with them, I’ve been fascinated by the concepts of vibrations, brain waves etc. Are there any books or sites you can recommend to learn more about these things?”

Yes. Yes I can.

Mine. ;)

Come with me and dive into the most fascinating biology lesson ever!

Your Brain 101


The two major components that make up your brain are neurotransmitters and brain waves.

Neurotransmitters are the chemical messengers that allow your neurons (brain cells) to communicate with one another.

This chemical communication is what causes each neuron to fire off an electrical charge. These electrical impulses create waves of consciousness ie brain waves.

So your brain communicates with alchemy and vibrations!

Just like sound waves, your brain produces rhythmical pulses that are measured in Hertz; and different speeds, produce different results.

There are four major categories of brain waves: Beta, Alpha, Theta & Delta.

You always produce all four main brain wave types. But it’s when a particular brain wave is dominant that it influences what kind of state you’re in.

There are also four major neurotransmitters that correlate to each brain wave type: dopamine, acetylcholine, GABA & serotonin.

Let me explain…


Beta Brain Waves


Beta waves are important for staying alert and focused. They vibrate between 14-30 Hertz, and they’re produced by the neurotransmitter dopamine.

When you’re concentrating hard, being active or learning something new - you’re helped along by dominant Beta brain waves. But when you’re panicking and full of anxiety - Beta waves are taking over.

Alpha Brain Waves


Alpha waves help you stay chilled out and imaginative. They vibrate between 8-13 Hertz, and they’re produced by the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.

When you’re daydreaming, relaxed or drowsy - Alpha brain waves are your dominant state. But too many alpha waves makes it difficult to concentrate.

Theta Brain Waves


Theta waves are dominant during deep meditation and REM sleep (ie when you’re dreaming). They vibrate between 4-7 Hertz, and they’re produced by the neurotransmitter GABA.

When you’re deeply calm and intuitive, or laying down long term memories  - Theta waves are influencing you. Unfortunately, an excess of Theta waves has been linked to ADD and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Delta Brain Waves


Delta waves are dominant during restorative, dreamless sleep. They vibrate between 0.1 - 3 Hertz and are produced by the neurotransmitter serotonin.

They help you rest deeply and heal (Human Growth Hormone is also produced during Delta sleep).

Some people have experienced ecstatic states of bliss during meditation as they access Delta states consciously (something quite difficult to achieve without meditones). But similar to Theta, an excess of Delta brain waves can cause slow wave brain disorders, like ADD and depression.


So you can see that no one neurotransmitter or brain wave type is better than the other. You need all four for different reasons. It’s when your brain waves or brain chemistry is out of balance that things go awry.

Your unique combination of brain waves and brain chemistry is what makes you YOU.

It’s as individual as your fingerprint.

Your character, your personality, your “strengths” and “weaknesses” are all encoded in your unique vibration. - click to tweet


My Best Book Recommendations

Have I sparked your interest in neuroscience? Gosh, I hope so. I find it endlessly fascinating.

Here are my top reads for easily digested, interesting info about your brain.

The Brain That Changes Itself


Years ago, scientists believed that you were born with a finite number of neurons that just died off as you aged. Now they now that the brain maintains itself right up until the moment of death. The new science of ‘neuroplasticity’ proves that it’s never too late to change anything!

The Edge Effect


The best book I’ve read on understanding how chemical imbalances lead to illness. Filled with great info and in depth questionnaires, you can then learn how to create your ultimate brain through supplements and nutrition. Personally, I would skip the suggestions on drugs and hormone replacements unless you’re working extremely closely with a trusted holistic doctor.

My Stroke Of Insight


When I first heard Jill Bolte Taylor’s TED talk, I cried. Her story is inspirational, moving and a true testimony to the power of neuroplasticity. A wonderful, personal story of a neuroscientist not only surviving stroke, but thriving.

Harnessing Energy - Part One

Harnessing Energy - Using the chakras to harness positive emotional energy ~ The Attitude Revolution

Welcome to the first in a four part series on how to get more energy.

Coz I know I want more of it and it seems like a lot of my comrades do too.

Because more energy + less anxiety = unstoppable you!

First up - emotional energy.

Emotions are potent. They can make you feel like you could run all night or they can make you feel like the ground is an anchor weighing you down, down, down.

The trick to harnessing emotional energy is to focus your mind on cultivating the emotions you want to feel. You can do this through the ancient symbols of chakras.

Chakras are energetic wheels that correlate  to certain areas of the body and to specific emotions.

You can use chakras as an intentional guide to harness the energy of different emotions.

Chakra Emotion Balanced Energy
Base Safety Grounded, secure, present
Sacral Zest Creative, sensual, playful
Solar Plexus Empowered Self worth, willpower, healthy boundaries
Heart Love Kind, loving, compassionate
Throat Expression Truthful, expressive, confident
Third Eye Insightful Epiphanies, wisdom, insight
Crown Connection Unity, vision, spiritual

Simply by guiding your focus through the use of visualisation, affirmations or energetic modalities such as reiki or kinesiology - you can clear and balance your emotional energy as they relate to the chakras.

So - say you want to feel more grounded.

Bring your attention to the base of your spine. Breathe deeply. Imagine the bodily sensation of feeling calm and secure. Repeat the mantra ‘I am safely protected’. Use the power of your imagination and your intentions to flow the energy of being grounded throughout your body. Enjoy the sensation of calm.

It’s that simple.

Your mind is a powerful tool, so use it to your advantage!


The Spectrum album was composed using the 7 chakras as inpsiration. Each track in the album has been crafted to enhance the emotion related to each particular chakra.

Keep an eye out next week - because I’m having a chakra blitz.

On June 16, I’ll be releasing one track per day from the Spectrum album.

If you want to focus on a particular chakra, you’ll be able to purchase the specific track you want.

Each track will only be on sale for 24 hours, so mark the sale in your calendar!

The Antidote To Overwhelm

So last week you would have received your free goal setting worksheet. Yes?

So you know that feeling good is the precursor to action. Yes yes?


I know this to be true for sure.

You see - at the beginning of the year, I was supposed to be launching Spectrum - a course to teach amazing trailblazers how to get more resilience to achieve their big bold life vision. It was going to be based on the spectrum of emotions related to the chakras.

It was to be the antidote to overwhelm…

But a month earlier I had gone through a painful break up. At the time, I was about to throw in the towel. Heartbroken and overwhelmed, I didn’t think it was right for me to create Spectrum any more. It seemed completely counterintuitive. I just wanted to fade away.

Instead, my dear brother gave me excellent advice for getting through the tough times.

Focus on what makes you feel good.

So I did.

And I laughed at the irony of really being tested to walk my talk ;)

I used the exact process that I gave you in the goal setting worksheet and did simple, feel-good activities every day.

And guess what one of those activities was?

Writing music.

I have endless energy for music. It’s a life-affirming, time-flying, zone-of-genius rush.

I poured my heart, soul, time and life energy into creating the music for Spectrum.

And it became a lighthouse for me during my healing process. A genuinely sacred feedback loop.

So many of the tracks felt ‘channeled’. Like the music was being written through me.

In January I had the distinct honour and pleasure to lead a small and committed group of women through the Spectrum course.

And now?

I’m making the music from the Spectrum course available in the shop.

There’s 2.5 hours of meditones music in one album.

9 tracks in total. One for each of the seven chakras; one epic integration of all seven chakras; plus a bonus guided visualisation. Each track has been created with heart, integrity and intelligence.

If you’re interested in going on an incredible journey, one that will take you through a Spectrum of emotions; that will help you connect to your body and your chakras; that truly is the antidote to overwhelm…

Then I humbly invite you to take a peek at Spectrum - The Album.

With so much gratitude,


PS - I’m so excited to share this with you, I’ve even got a little sale on for the next week. You’ll get $50 off if you purchase in the next 7 days.


Goal Setting Worksheet

You too can be as happy as this mouse as you reach your goals!


Maybe you want to stop scoffing cake after every stressful staff meeting. Maybe you want to do yoga every day. Maybe you want to fulfil that creative dream of starting a blog / business / book.

Whatever your dream, no matter how tiny or daunting, you want to achieve it, yes?

Without all the huff and puff that normally accompanies your accomplishments, yes?

You can.

Feeling good is the precursor to action. <- click to tweet

It’s not new, it’s not revelatory, and it’s not rocket science.

I’m sure you’ve heard it a billion times by lots of other people. In fact Danielle LaPorte wrote a whole book on it (called The Desire Map). Plus, you KNOW in your cells that when you feel good. you do good - naturally.

But how do you maintain that consistency? What are the exact steps you need to take?

Wonder no more.

I’ve created a FREE worksheet for you to create simple steps that will help you achieve your goals, minus the overwhelm.

Download your free worksheet by signing up in the box below.

You’re welcome.

PS - Stay tuned. Next week - a HUGE antidote to overwhelm is coming…
