Cayenne is a hot and spicy Herb that can relieve pain, prevent a cold, dramatically support heart health and promote healthy weight loss

Cayenne is a stimulant and is antimicrobial, analgesic, carminative, styptic, anti-oxidant, anti-fungal and a blood mover.

To avoid stomach upset it’s recommended to consume Cayenne Pepper with a meal. Depending on your sensitivity and tolerance, you can use just a few sprinkles to spice up your meal or a therapeutic amount of 1-10 grams per day.

Always start with small amounts of Cayenne Pepper and then slowly increase as desired. Cayenne is a hot herb, taken in large amounts over time could lead someone to feel hot and dry all the time. Cayenne is very irritating to the eyes and sensitive skin, so avoid touching Cayenne or Cayenne preparations and then touching the eyes.

Simple Chakra Cleansing Technique

You might have heard about Cleansing your Chakras, but how can you easily do this yourself?

IMG_0821

There are several techniques available for Cleansing your Chakras. Some you can easily do yourself to keep on top of it and some you can let done by a Holisitc Practitioner, which is often more deep and intense.

Keeping your Chakras clean is very important to keep your Energy Flow smoothly running through your body. If Chakras are blocked by “debris”, which often comes through different kind of emotions, we can experience physical issues.

You can keep your Chakras “activated” through Meditation and focus on a specific Chakra or focus on all of them and Create a Clean Kundalini Flow. Also through Reiki Healing you can keep your Chakras healthy, clean and activated.

But a simple “visualisation” technique gives you the option to do some Chakra Cleansing yourself. I used this technique several times myself and I find it a pretty powerful technique.

As you know, or maybe not really, our Chakras “spin” like wheels. The spin / rotate in clockwise direction in a regular motion when they are activated and clean. When Chakras are “blocked” they might spin / rotate less regular because the Energy can’t flow through smoothly because of “build up debris”, like I mentioned before, mostly caused by several emotions and stress.

So the technique you can provide goes as follow:

When you’re in the shower, let the water flow from over the top of your head and let it flow from the top of your head all over your body.

Close your eyes, take a couple of slow and deep breathes as you bring yourself in a kind of Meditative state.

Imagine / Visualise that you “see” your Chakras spinning like Water Wheels.

Then imagine / visualise that the water from the top of your head, the pure divine water, goes down through all your Water Wheels, all 7 Chakras, and rinse all “debris and dirt” from it.

Move your imagination from your Crown Chakra on the top of your head, slowly towards your Third Eye Chakra, your Throat Chakra, your Heart Chakra, your Solar Plexus, your Sacral Chakra, your Root Chakra….and “see” all the debris and dirt being rinsed away into the “ground”, being removed from out of your body.

Keep your visual focus a few minutes on every Chakra and “see” how the water rinse that “water wheel” clean, “see” how the water goes over and through the “water wheel” and once you “see” or “feel” it is clean, move your focus to the next Chakra.

Go from top to bottom and once you “see” or “feel” that all debris is cleansed and washed away, you can open your eyes and come back to reality.

You might have to try it a couple of times, when you are not so familiar or practiced with visualisation, but once you master this technique you will start to feel the difference within your Self.

How regular you should do this is up to you. Some people like to do it once a week, on a Sunday for example to rinse out everything from the last week and prepare with a “clean” week. And some people do it when they “feel” it is needed. There is not a set period of time for it, but it is recommended to do it on a regular basis.

I hope this technique will help you, please try it out and let me know how you get on!

Namaste,

Holistic Life Coaching, Customised and Unique!

“There are a lot of ‘standards’ within Coaching, but You are Unique as yourself, your Situation is Unique, your Life is Unique and your Dreams and Goals are Unique, so You need support in a Customised and Unique way to get the Best Results”.  Angelique Mol ღ

There are a lot of “role models” used within Coaching which works for a lot of people but also for a lot of people there is need of a different approach, a different plan, different steps to take….simply because everyone is different. Better to say, You are Unique.

It’s with a lot of things, what works for one doesn’t have to work for somebody else. So it is very important to assess someone in a very personal way.

That’s why Holistic Coaching is more personal and customised. The client will be assessed on a Personal, Mental and Spiritual level as these are all connected and are very important aspects in Life.

Some restrictions, problems or issues might seem to be caused by stress for example, but the true reason can be buried deeper or in another aspect or at another level than you might think.

Holistic Coaching is about truly finding the reason behind the “problem” and finding the best ways to create the Change that is desired and to make You feel good, happy and confident within yourself again as well, as a whole on all levels within your being.

Sometimes other Holistic Treatments, like Reiki Healing, Crystal Therapy or Meditation, can be beneficial to combine with the Coaching to get the best results and to create a Better and Happy You again.
