Can you still keep up with this Life and Society?

Embrace all that Nature and the Universe provides us with, me might have forgotten how to use it all, but it’s still there…….

In this time and age of fast speed living, having a lot of things already done for us, pre-made to make things quick and easy for us, we often forget that we can get so much more out of Life.

Basically Nature provides us with everything we need, but we are too disconnected from a lot where our ancestors were connected to. And all this speed and fast pace living doesn’t always give us the best benefits of it all.

Our ancestors used all that Nature provides and gave their blessings for using it, being Grateful and showing Respect. In general who these days is really Grateful for what is provided to us? And what do we use with Respect and give our Blessings back to it?

It’s a shame that we became so disconnected as it gave us a lot of things that are not so beneficial for us or our health. We deal on a daily basis with stress, anxiety, depression, loneliness, fear and mental health in total and always feeling the pressure of society to be successful and to achieve something in our life.

Why do we make it so hard on ourselves? As it’s not even that difficult to make a change that can make us more happy and healthy, we just need to start to take time for a bit more self reflection…..

Take a moment for yourself and ask yourself, “Am I truly satisfied with my life?”, “Do I feel truly happy within myself?”, “Do I feel inner peace?”, “Do I really love the job I’m doing?”, “Do I really look after myself?”, “Am I free of stress, anxiety and depression?”

Most people will have at least one question that will get the answer “no”. And then ask yourself “why?”. What is the reason why you don’t feel truly happy, or that you don’t really look after yourself that well, or that you struggle through life because of stress, anxiety and depression?

And basically, it’s not Society that makes us who we are and what we do….it’s Us, ourselves who decide to join this fast paced treadmill and living the life how we live it at the moment. We always have the choice to make better changes for ourselves, so why don’t we?

It’s shocking to hear and read about so many young kids, or young adults, who commit suicide because they are struggling so much with the pressure of life, society and the expectations that are out there. Pressure from Social Media as you need to show off how successful you are or how perfect you look…….. Do you already have that new hairstyle or clothes from that amazing brand? Do you spend hours on your make-up as you need to look like everyone else does? How many likes to do You get on your social media posts?

Again, it’s not Society, it’s all of us Creating this society.

If everyone, every single individual, would decide that this fast paced life, full of stress, pressure and expectations is no longer acceptable, because it’s causing us more harm than good, especially on our physical and mental health, Society would change. Our life would change, people would change and yes then it would become a definite better World.

Going back to “the basics” is not only releasing us from a lot of stress and anxiety and other physical and mental health problems, it will make us more compassionate again towards each other, as we will feel the need to help out each other more, it will make us appreciate more what is in our surroundings and what is Really important in Life.

See what life brings us as how it is at this very moment……..do you Really Feel that life brings us so much good? Look around you……people don’t communicate, don’t even look at each other as people are hypnotised by their mobile devices, and what are they spending their time on? Time is so precious…..why spending so much time on Social Media and devices while we can go out there, explore the world, being adventurous!

There are So many other things we can spend our time on, as time that is gone won’t come back……do you realise that sometimes? If tomorrow were your last day, can you look back on your life and honestly say you have done a lot of things with your life, important things, fun things, gained great experiences, met lovely people and shared time with them, helping and supporting others, seen the world around you?

Or have you filled most part of your life feeling under pressure, stressed, runned down, being in a job you don’t like and being on social media all day sharing selfies and the only communication you have with people and your “friends” is over text messages and liking peoples posts?

Social Media can be good if it’s used for the right things, but when we over-use it for things that are not important and create anxiety and depression to a lot of people, it might be time to think what we are really doing here and what we do to ourselves, our society and our children, who are growing up with this kind of stress and pressure.

Some might feel that “back to basics” is old fashion, or boring even, but is it?

If you feel resonated with things in this article, then maybe it IS time for a change, for yourself, but also to make a start in changing Society.

Explore the world, sniff in the smells of Nature, meet up with your friends for a coffee, meal or drinks and have an actual personal conversation, be true friends, support them if they need help. When was the last time you picked up the phone and asked a friend how he/she is doing, instead of asking it over text? Do you remember your friend’s birthday actually or is it only because Facebook reminds you of it?

Changing society is not gonna happen overnight, but if we all put our effort in it and start living life in a normal way, with each other and for each other, it will slowly take a positive turn. And I’m convinced that it will make more people happy and that there will be less physical and mental health issues.

We need to set a good example for each other, for our children, as we need to pave the right path for them, so they can live a life away from all the issues we are living with today and living a better life.

Namaste,

Back to the basics, Back to natural

“Your Consciousness will bring you back in touch with the Basics, with Nature and all that is really important in Life” – Angelique Mol

When I was growing witin my Self, my Awareness and Consciousness over the last years, I naturally got drawn more and more to just the basic things in Life.

I started to read more about foods, drinks, pharmaceutical medicine, healthcare and discovered all kind of things in my research. From GMO’s to hormones in our veggies and meats, and all extra chemicals we don’t need in medication.

It’s ironic, isn’t it…..we eat and drink too much processed products, too much sugars even though we know it’s not the best for us and our health. And believe me, I’m guilty of this myself! Though, for quite some time now I’ve been cutting down on processed products, buy and eat more fresh and organic, not drinking any fizzy drinks and became Vegetarian since about 6 years ago.

For me, personally, deciding to go on a Vegetarian diet was not only about animal cruelty which is connected with the meat we eat, but more so about all the hormones in it. Animals get pumped up with hormones to grow bigger and so “produce” more meat. But, when the animals are processed to our meat the hormones are still in there, as it comes in the blood. These hormones can give us serious health issues and illnesses. Best choice to get good and pure meat is from a local butcher from who you know that treats his animals right and their animals were feed on the right natural food.

Funny enough, when you grow in your Consciousness, there is not really a “way back”, as you became aware of so many things and you can’t really ignore it anymore. I do still Love chocolate and cookies, but try to keep it to a minimum eating it to avoid too much of an overload in sugars…..as be aware, cancer cells Love sugar!! And this is no myth.

Going back to more Basics, going back to more Natural…….. is it a “bad” thing? Are you a “Hippie” when you do so?  I don’t believe so! I started providing Healing and Herbalism because I Do believe we are too much disconnected from Nature and Mother Earth, and that we “ignore” the great benefits she can give us for our health. Mother Earth basically provides all we need, but we are so used now to an overload of luxury in our foods and material things.

Going back more Natural means for me that I will be able to not only help my Self becoming more healthy but also help others becoming so. I do feel at this moment in time there is a shift going on, and people start to pay more attention to natural remedies and natural medicine, but also more organic foods, you can even see it more and more in the supermarkets.

If you think, for yourself…..what do you Really need? Think in terms of your health but also in material things. Could you maybe minimalise your living standards? Could you change your diet with more fresh foods and less processed? What is true Inner Happiness for you? Is it all the Things you own or is it about being Healthy and feeling great within your Self and just being Grateful for all the small things in Life what you have and receive every day?

Sometimes I read articles and see photos of people in third world countries or Natives, and we always feel sympaty for them, which is great of course, but who do you think have more Inner Peace and Happiness? They might not have all the materialism We have, but they also don’t have all the pressure and stress We have to deal with on a daily basis. They just live in simplicity. Not to say that you need to throw out everything you own, but it can give you much more Inner Peace and Happiness when you try to simplify your Life, focus a bit more on leaving things behind us that we don’t actually need and taking a bit more care for our own Health by chosing more Natural options.

The less chemicals you get in your body, the less illnesses you will experience, your immune system will become stronger, natural medicine have no side effects, so it’s safe to use, and when you’re less attached to materialism in general it will give you more Inner Peace and Happiness, as you don’t Feel the Need anymore to have everything “just for the sake of having / owning it”, as you have enough.

For me, personally, I’m happy to be Basic and Natural. I’m happy to be able to help other people and animals, to have Respect for Nature and Mother Earth and to be Grateful every single day. As the fulfillment and satisfation I feel when I help others, even in small things, is something money can’t buy but is So much worth in value.

Self Reflection, Release and Rise

There is So much Love within ourselves, we just need to Rise Up and not be afraid to show it and use it – Angelique Mol ღ

The-Rise-Of-Me

The last 2 weeks, I had some days to use up, I had really time for myself, time for some Self Reflection which made me see things from a different perspective and to realize even more what it is that I want in my Life and on my Journey.

Today especially, I had another day of Self Reflection, but also a moment of Releasing. After being for a bit on my Social Media channels, connecting with people and interacting with people, and watching a few videos about different subjects in Life, it was like a mirror was held up towards my Self. Not particular about What I was watching in the video, but the emotions that came with it.

It made me realize that there is So much Love in the World and within ourselves, but for some reason a lot of people keep dwelling and focusing on Negative things, Bad situations, Sad things instead of diving in the Positive things, the emotions of Caring and Loving. In the videos I watched, it was all about Loving and Caring, Standing up for Your Self, taking the Power of your own Life and Reality…..and actually Doing something with it and about it.

I actually came at a point of Emotional Release, as I Do feel a lot of Love and Caring emotions within my Self and always think I Do use them well towards others, but how much do I actually use it for My Self? What do I want to do with my Self Love, in what ways can I even more be helpful and caring towards other, using my Self Love?

Where am I at this stage in my Life? What is my Life Purpose? Where does my Self-Love comes in this? And a lot became very clear to me, and I am Grateful for this time of Self Reflection and Release. As this means I am at a point now where I can Rise again.

Self Reflection

I also came to the realization that it is Okay to feel Lost sometimes, and that you struggle within Your Self, not knowing what to Do with your Life. But try to remember that you are here for Something. And it’s for your Self to find what it is. No Life is meaningless, every Life is Meaningful. And so is Yours. You Matter, like anybody else.

And that’s why it’s important to Give your Self some time for Self Reflection, to Release Energies and Emotions that no longer serve you and to Feel you have the Right to Rise again within your own full Potential, of what You want in Life and what Feels Best for You.

You might not get the changes you want overnight, you might have to work towards it, create things or situations, except help from others (as that’s okay as well, you don’t always have to do it alone), but hold on to your Dreams and Desires, as you Can make it come true. Just keep believing in Your Self.

Sharing Love and Compassion and Being Grateful every day are no hard things to do, but it certainly helps you moving Forward, and Connect you with the people who need to be on your Journey, either to help You or for You to help Them.

My time of Self Reflection and Release did help me to Rise Up again and to Believe in My Self and in my Dreams. And I am Grateful for the people around me who are always there for me and who Believe in me too.

Ambition

You can Rise Up as well and use your power of Self-Love and trust that you are Worth it. Share your Love, Show Compassion and Rise within your Consciousness and above all that doesn’t serve you any longer.

Dare to choose, dare to make the right decisions for You…..as deep inside Your Self you already Know what you want if you Really listen to your Inner Self.

Be You, Love You, Live You and live Your life.

2018, a Year “11” which represents New Beginnings

“Do you feel the urge to Create an Amazing Year for yourself?”

Every year, after our New Year’s celebrations people come up with all kinds of Resolutions for the New Year. Some will succeed in doing so when they look back on it at the end of the Year. But a lot of people don’t succeed and for that matter already don’t make Resolutions as they feel they’re not gonna be able to do it anyway. So, even the trying is gone ;-)

Funny enough, even though this year is only a few days “old”, I’ve heard from so many people that they Feel this is gonna be a Great, Fantastic or Amazing year for them. Which I feel is awesome, as that means that people set out the intentions to actually Create a Wonderful year for themselves!

In Numerology the year 2018 is a Number 11 year. So if you like to pick a year for New Beginnings, then this might be the Right year for you! Number 11 is a Master Number in Numerology and carries the foundation for New Beginnings. As you might know, setting out intentions is a powerful way to start Creating and Manifesting. Keeping your Mind focussed on what you like to achieve this year, can very much so Result in what you want to achieve this year, or in the years to come.

Last year there was a Lot of focus on becoming Successful, Rich, Earn lots of money……the advertisements were in your face basically All the time. But slowly towards the end of the year it seems that the focus of people (and advertisement) goes more into the direction of Health, Mindfulness, Balance, Healthy Foods, Less Chemicals, Illness prevention, Organics. And I think that is great!

Personally, I feel as well that 2018 is gonna be an Amazing Year! At least, I work on to set the Intentions to Create one, even though the first days of this year I was already challenged in a certain personal way, but, it doesn’t distract me from my own Goals and Resolutions for this year.

My year will be in focus of more study, Herbalism, Holistic Therapies but also how I place my Self in the World, towards others, my Friends, Family, Acquaintances. I always Feel that I can improve my Self in certain ways and I Feel that as long as I keep working on my Self, it will get better and easier. If I compare my Self now with my Self a couple of years ago, then I can say that I feel proud of what I already have achieved and how much I have learned and improved my Self, for my Self but also towards others.

I like to keep working on my Positive Attitude and Mindset, to stay in my centre when I get challenged in a certain way. As something only “hits” us as much as how we Let it hit us. It’s not always easy, as often after a certain challenge you might ask your Self why you let yourself getting so upset, or getting it to you so much. But, at that point it’s another learning moment and you try to do it better next time. It’s all a process of learning, accepting, allowing and moving forward again.

I feel Life becomes exciting when you’re facing challenges, get opportunities, meet new people and recognise how you Change over time. You might recognise yourself that you can have a very different Perspective on something now comparing to a year or a couple of years ago. Isn’t that awesome?!

Before I start to rumble on and on about challenges and opportunities, I like to use this moment, now you are here with me, to ask your Self how You can make 2018 an Amazing year for you. What would you like to change, what Resolutions did you came up with so far or maybe you like to keep it all in the open ;-) Which is great as well! Just Go with the Flow!

At least I hope that you are Excited as I am, for this new year and having a good feeling about it as well! I hope this Number 11 year will bring you Great New Beginnings in every possible way! Imagine, Believe and Achieve!

The Countdown has begun…..2018

I like to take this moment to give Thanks to all my Family, Friends and Acquaintances for being a part of my Journey over this last year! I also like to give Thanks to all the People who have been supporting my website blog as followers and the people who took the time to read my posts and leave lovely comment and sharing their thoughts and feelings, even though I have to been writing that much over the last couple of months. ( this is one resolution I like to change in the New Year ;-) )

For me, personally, this year was a year of personal reflection, finding a bit more my own direction and making decisions how to continue in the New Year. I had a couple of very clear “aha” moments and making certain decisions have made me feel very good and motivated within my Self.

Sometimes making certain decisions means to Let Go of things or actually to Hold On to things. Most important is that you feel within your Self what is Best for You.

My Passion was, and definitely still is, Helping People. And I have done that over the past years in many different ways and it gives me fulfilment and satisfaction. I noticed that my direction has a bit changed, slightly in the direction I want to go. My focus seemed to have moved direction a bit more from just Coaching to Healing & Coaching to Healing, Herbalism and Coaching.

Of these 3 the most present ones at the moment are Reiki Healing and Herbalism. I felt drawn to these Holistic Therapies for a long time and made the decision to continue on this path and give even more focus and attention to it. The New Year means for me going back into Study Mode and learn more and a deeper understanding about Herbalism and how I will be able to combine this with Reiki Healing treatments.

I feel that Natural Medicine will become a bigger part for Humanity over the years to come. More people start to turn “back” to Nature, Natural Remedies, Holistic Therapies and everything Organic. Which I feel is a great thing to do as it makes us more Aware of our Earth, what she actually provides for us and that actually a lot of chemical solutions not always are the best of use. We lost our Connection with Nature for a long time and now we are on a “turn” and start to find ourselves moving back slowly towards Her. And all I can say from my personal perspective is “keep going”.

I am Grateful for my Personal and Spiritual Growth again over this last year, we never stop growing and developing, and that is great! I hope that for You this last year was a good year as well and that the New Year will be another Good one or maybe even a Better one!

I wish you All a Great New Year’s Eve and the Best Wishes, Joy, Happiness, Health and Abundance for 2018! And I hope we’ll stay Connected for at least another Year again ;-)

With much Love and Gratitude,
