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,

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.

The Power of Meditation

 
Don't hate Meditate
 
Meditation becomes more and more populair as more people find a purpose in it.
It is a great tool when it comes to Stress-Release, Relaxing and Insomnia for example.
 
 
How do you Meditate?
 
Not everyone is familiar with it and still lots of people have the feeling they can’t relax or make their mind stop thinking about the daily things that goes around in their head.
When normal Meditation is very hard for you to start off with, and with normal Meditation I mean turning into Your Self in Silence, you can always start with Guided Meditations.
 
These Meditations are great and help you really come into a Meditative State. Important is to find a Guided Meditation where the voice who speaks to you sounds and feel comfortable.
I found Meditations before where I thought it would be great, until the voice started to speak……my hairs got straight up so to speak and I really had to turn it off as it made me feel very uncomfortable ;-).
 
YouTube is a very good source for Guided Meditations, there are lots of them! But again, try to find the ones who will work for you.
Also the length of a Meditation can be very different. When you first start with Guided Meditations don’t pick one that takes up to an hour or more as this can be too long for you. The best to start off with are the ones that take up to a maximum of half an hour or so.
 
 
What is exactly the Power of Meditation?
 
Meditation can help to Silence your Mind, to make your Mind clear, free from all the worries you are struggling with. See it as a sort of “empty the bucket”.
It’s a very Powerful tool for Letting Go and Releasing.
For people who have trouble with sleeping for example it can be very helpful when you Meditate just before going to bed. You don’t have to Meditate for half an hour at that moment, about 10 or 15 minutes is already sufficient.
Most people have trouble sleeping because all kind of stuff keeps running in their mind, so in this way you learn to Silence and Empty your Mind and after a couple of days you already should notice the difference.
 
So in every kind of way where there is Stress, Anger, Hate, Sadness or other “negative” feelings, Meditation is the Powertool to get rid of it.
You might not be succesful after your first time Meditation and if that’s the case just don’t give up but try to Meditate as often as possible.
I for myself try to Meditate every morning before my day starts and every night before I go to bed.
When you are not able to Meditate every day, no worries, some people only Meditate when they feel they need it.
And believe me, once you notice and feel the difference when you use Meditation or not, you Will know when you need it ;-)
 
Meditation is Not just for Spiritual people or for people who have certain Believes, Meditation is helpful for Everyone!
You will be surprised how many people use it in their daily Life. From the ordinairy neighbour till the CEO of a huge company.
It doesn’t matter what the purpose is as long as it works for you in the way you need it to work for you.
 
Don’t keep running around with an overloaded Mind, don’t hold on to Anger, Irritation and Stress as this effect your daily Life way to much.
It’s way better if you can be relaxed and focus on the things that are Really important.
You can make better decisions when you have a clear mind, your concentration improves, you remember things better when your Mind open and clear, so why keep walking around with a Mind that is full of stuff that doesn’t need to be there all the time, especially not when you want and need a good night sleep. You will feel way more rested when you have slept better with an empty Mind :-).
 
Now you know why it is been said “Don’t Hate, Meditate” ;-) , as it gives Inner Peace. And when you are more Peaceful you mirror that back on others as well and they will become more Peaceful towards you as well.
 
Have fun and have Peace!
