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,

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.
