Bring Yoga off the Mat!

I watched a documentary the other day and it was about Yoga and taking Yoga off the Mat. First it was a bit unclear to me how to do that and what it would exactly meant to do that. As Yoga is not just a practice or a physical exercise, it’s so much more and had such a deeper meaning than you might think.

For me, Yoga has been so far a practice to stabilise my Body and Mind in Peacefulness and Mindfulness, together with the Physical exercise aspect of it. It makes me feel good to do Yoga and it’s a great start of the day! I prefer doing Yoga in the morning, when I get up, before getting ready for my day. And Yoga is for Everyone! No matter what Age, Size, Shape, Ethnicity or Religion.

But, I learned now that Yoga does not just help you in that moment of doing the positions but that there is so much more to it! You can bring Yoga with you during your day in a way that you can reflect your Yoga into whatever you’re doing during the day or towards other people.

It’s like with Mindfulness, you bring your stabilised energies from your Body and Mind into your daily routine and keep that Feeling and Mindset during the rest of your day. I do feel it’s a process of Learning to do that, as we always can have “challenging” moments in our day when our Mindfulness or Inner Peace gets “tested”. Then, it will be the Art to try to keep Being in your Inner Peace space and Mindfulness and not let the challenges come to you or taking over your Inner Peace.

It definitely requires practice, as I noticed myself, but I Do feel when you Create the Intention to bring your Yoga Feeling, that you have established in your morning practice, into the rest of your day, it can change So much within your own Inner Peace, your Mood, your Reflection towards other people and your own Inner Happiness! And it definitely helps with fighting Stress, Anxiety and Depression!

I learned that Yoga is, indeed, so much more than the physical practice On the mat. And I’m so Happy and Grateful that I learned that about Yoga. I also learned that the Intention of wanting to practice Yoga should not be Just the intention to practice it for your Physical development only but Also for the Total development within your own Spirituality, Compassion, Self Love, Unconditional Love and Mindfulness.

I’ve seen this documentary on Gaia.com which is kind of the Netflix for Spirituality and Consciousness. Lots of videos, short films, documentaries, Series, but also practices for Yoga, Meditation and Pilates. I definitely can recommend this channel to you as there is so much knowledge shared about different subjects within Spirituality, Consciousness and Mindfulness.

I wish you a Wonderful Day and I hope you can bring your own way of Yoga into the rest of your day!

Namaste,

Fall Asleep Meditations

You want to sleep peacefully, without a mind that is in overload of processing everything from the day, without strange dreams…..just peacefully

If you are familiar with Meditations you know that there are different ways to meditate. You can meditate on just purely relaxing music or sounds, you can meditate out in nature, you can do a guided meditation but you can also do a “fall asleep” meditation.

A “fall asleep” meditation is basically a guided meditation with a kind of hypnosis in it as well. Because of the hypnosis aspects in it, the meditation and the guided voice is still working for you in your subconscious, even though you are asleep and unconscious basically.

If I had a very busy day or watched a pretty intense movie for example, I can bet on it that I will dream a lot, but then a lot of weird stuff. I won’t say nightmares but still things that don’t make sense or are confusing or leaving me with a weird feeling when I wake up in the morning.

Almost every evening I either do a meditation just before going to bed, or I do a “fall asleep” meditation while in bed and just snooze off during the meditation. And it really helps with putting my mind at ease, no weird dreaming and waking up with a much better feeling.

I find the “fall asleep” meditations basically on YouTube and my favourite channel for these meditations is called “Unlock Your Life”. They have meditations with different subjects so I’m sure you can find one that suits you best as well.

I like to say, keep on dreaming but keep it at peace!

Foods in relation to Anxiety and Depression

You probably have heard before about High Vibrational Foods and Low Vibrational Foods. Even though we “know” that High Vibrational Foods are far much better for us, in so many ways, we still seem to attract more to Low Vibrational Foods.

High Vibrational Foods are not only good for our Physical body, but even more so for our Mental state of health as well. It’s not always what you think about this is related to each other, but it actually is.

Low Vibrational Foods give us most of the time a temporary “kick” like sugars do, but also coffee and tea. Though Coffee and Tea are a bit in the middle frequency between Low and High Vibrational foods. But for example, Coffee and Tea cause less harm in winter time as it helps to use warm up the body and will be processed by the body in a different way than in Summer.

Processed foods are of course definitely Low Vibrational Foods, though some processed foods cause less harm than other processed foods. Processed foods contain a lot of chemicals which are simply not good for our Physical body but also not for our Mental health.

Cells in our body renew all the time. When taking in High Vibrational Foods the body actually heals itself in many ways. But when taking in the Low Vibrational Foods we actually put things in our Body and System which can cause disease and the body is not able to heal itself how it should do.

High Vibrational Foods are good for Body and Mind, while Low (or middle vibrational) Foods are maybe partly good for your body, or not good at all, but definitely not beneficial for our Mental Health. It makes our Mind over-active which is causing Over-thinking, Worrying which results in Anxiety and Depression. Hight Vibrational Foods actually calms down the Mind as it brings the Body and Mind in a Higher form of Consciousness.

So when you change your diet in more High Vibrational Foods and combine this with Meditation, this can be Very affective in cases of Anxiety and Depression.

You probably have heard of the phrase “You are what you eat”, and this is how it is. And this is not just based on the Physical body as a lot of people might think, but it is based on your entire system of Body and Mind.

Especially in a society where we live in now, it is even More important to watch what we consume, as Life on it’s own already can cause a lot of Stress and situations can cause Anxiety and Depression. But the more we Care for our Self, the more we are Aware of what we consume, the Better and Easier our body is able to fight agains diseases and unhealthy cells in our Body and System, it will recover quicker but also will prevent certain diseases.

To get a bit of an understanding between High and Low Vibrational Foods, I list them down for you here:

High Vibrational Foods:

Fresh, certified organic fruits and vegetables

Natural supplements, like spirulina

Herbal Teas

Herbs and spices

Pure or filtered water — reverse osmosis or freshly collected spring water are the best choices

Healthy oils, like olive oil and coconut oil

Nuts and seeds

Fermented foods

Raw chocolate

Raw honey and maple syrup

Legumes

Grains such as buckwheat, brown rice, amaranth, and spelt

Low Vibrations Foods:

Genetically modified (GMO) food, and conventional food that’s been treated with chemicals and pesticides

White rice and flours

Sugars, sweeteners (artificial etc.)

Coffee / Tea (which both contains caffeine)

Sodas

Alcohol

Meat, fish and poultry

Processed, packaged, canned and fast foods (though some are less harmful, like fresh frozen, or fresh fruit on water but see if there is no added sugar in there)

Unhealthy oils, like canola, cottonseed, margarine, and vegetable oils

Frozen foods (when not fresh frozen)

Pasteurized cows milk, yogurt and cheese

Cooked foods, deep fried foods and microwaving food

When you want to Heal your body from toxins and chemicals, what you might have taken in for a long time, it is very recommended to detox your Body and Mind from this by starting taking in High Vibrational Foods, drink lots of Pure Water (without fluoride in it) and start to Feel a difference within your Self, on a Physical Level and on a Mental Level.

In the beginning it might be very hard to make this change, and to leave out all the “tasty” bad foods, but once your Body and Mind get used to this new diet, you will notice that you will have less and less “graving” for Low Vibrational Foods. You will feel more Energetic and more Alive, more Healthy and you will recognise that minor Health issues you might have will disappear.

You Naturally start to Feel and Recognise within your Body and Mind what is good for you and what not. Your Body and Mind will “tell” you.

Change your Diet, Change your Life and Health!

The Great Benefit of Yoga

image

I discovered Yoga already a while ago as a very beneficial tool for bringing your Body and Mind in total Balance.
Though before that time I always thought Yoga was a bit boring to practice and lots of exercises and positions hard to do.

But once I started to try it out,  also because it goes very well in combination with Meditation I experienced it was not so bad at all!

When you start with Yoga you are of course not be able to do the Acrobatic positions straight away,  and to be honest,  I’m still not there yet, still not experienced enough to do them ;-).
Starting off with the Basic positions is already great to Feel and recognize the difference for your Body and Mind.

For me, the best time of the day to practice Yoga is early Morning. It gives you Such a high amount of Energy afterwards what will support you through the day.
Yoga is for me also a kind of Meditation on its own as you focus on the exercises, positions and your breathing which automatically helps to relax and ease the Mind.

Many people still think that Yoga ( with just the basic positions) won’t improve your Body in a muscular way like with a lot of other sports. But actually it does!
The whole combination of your Breathing and the Exercises helps to remove toxins from your Body. And when toxins are being removed from your Body it benefits not only your Health but also contributes with Weight loss. It’s also a very good exercise to get rid of Cellulite! Also again because of getting rid of the toxins in your Body.

When you feel stressed or have a lot of things on your Mind it’s a great solution to use Yoga, and even better in combination with Meditation, to calm your Mind. When your Mind is on ease without tension and worries you will feel Physically much better as well. As you might know, stress and worries really drains your Energy what of course has a huge effect on your Body.

Important also is to drink a glass of light warm water before you start with Yoga and drink much water afterwards through the day, also to keep working on removing those toxins.

When you for example practice Yoga early morning and do a Meditation before you go to bed you keep your Body and Mind in perfect Balance. The Yoga is a great start of the Day as it provides you enough Energy throughout the Day and help you start the Day with a Fresh, Clear Mind and the Meditation at Night will help you to clear out your Mind from everything through the Day again so you can prepare for a good night sleep ( without having all these thoughts and stress still running through your mind which can cause a restless night or even insomnia ).

So when you are looking for more Balance and Peace in your Body and Mind,  Yoga and Meditation are very Powerful and Beneficial.

Have fun!  :-)
