Wolf Medicine

Wolf……Teacher, Pathfinder, Moon-dog of my Soul. Howling, Singing, Teaching how to know.

Wolf is the Pathfinder, the forerunner of new ideas who returns to the clan to teach and share medicine. Wolf takes one mate for Life and is loyal like a dog. If you were to keep company with Wolves, you would find an enormous sense of Family within the pack, as well as a strong individualistic urge. These qualities make Wolf very much like the Human race. As Humans we also have an ability to be a part of society and yet still embody our individual dreams and ideas.

In the Great Star Nation, Wolf is represented by the Dog Star, Sirius, which legend tells us was the original home of our teachers in ancient times. Sirius was thought to be the home of the Gods by the ancient Egyptians, and is still considered so by the Dogan tribe in Africa. It stands to reason that Native American peoples would formulate this same Connection and adopt Wolf people as the clan of teachers.

The senses of Wolf are very keen, and the Moon is its power ally. The Moon is the symbol for Psychic Energy, or the unconscious that holds the secrets of knowledge and wisdom. Baying at the Moon may be an indication of Wolf’s desire to Connect with new ideas which are just below the surface of Consciousness. Wolf medicine empowers the teacher within us all to come forth and aid the children of Earth in understanding the Great Mystery and Life.

Wolf medicine can mean for you that you may able to share your personal medicine with others. Your intuitive side may also have an answer or teaching for your personal use at this time. As you feel Wolf coming alive within you, you may wish to share your knowledge by writing or lecturing on information that will help others better understand their uniqueness or path in Life.

It is in the sharing of Great Truths that the Consciousness of Humanity will attain new heights. Wolf could also be telling you to seek out lonely places that will allow you to see your teacher within. In the aloneness of a power place, devoid of other humans, you may find the True You. Look for teachings no matter where you are.

Wolf would not come to you unless you requested the appearance of the tribe’s greatest teacher.

Healing Facts of Herbs

Still a lot of people wonder if Herbs and Spices are actually working. I can say from my personal experience, “yes they do work”. It’s been since ages ago that the healing properties of herbs are written in texts and documents, and Herbalists these days study and research this to get the best healing benefits from it and to be able to help people in the best tailored way.

Herbs strengthen digestion:  

Most chronic disease starts with poor digestion. Many culinairy herbs have been used for thousands of years, not only for the good taste but also to help with digestion. More than often people have had poor digestion for so long that they assume it’s a natural part of life. Herbs and spices can help strengthen the digestion and often people experience that other complaints disappear.

The following symptoms are related with poor digestion: bloating, gas, indigestion, heartburn, constipation, nausea, poor appetite, recurring diarrhea and ulcers.

Digestion

Herbs are high in anti-oxidants: 

Anti-oxidants are an important key to limiting the damage done to the body by oxidative stress, which has been linked to heart disease, liver problems, arthritis, premature skin ageing and eye damage. It occurs when the body is overloaded with free radicals. The formation of free radicals is a natural part of living but can be dramatically increased by stress, eating processed foods, consuming overheated oils, breathing air pollutants or cigarette smoke, being sleep deprived or eat charred meats. To minimise oxidative stress, it’s important to limit these negative influences and regularly include high anti-oxidant foods, such as Herbs and Spices in your meals.

Fresh local foods and herbs

Herbs support the nervous system:

We live in quite a stressed culture, people are always “busy” when you ask them how they are doing. Excessive stress is so common these days that it almost seems “normal” to start your day with little sleep and be rushed, overworked and overcommitted. Our bodies are more and more showing the effects of constant exposure to chronic stress.

Chronic stress has been linked to six leading causes of death: cancer, coronary heart disease, accidental injuries, respiratory disorders, cirrhosis of the liver and suicide.

Herbs will not let you run on no sleep, rushing from activity to activity on your busy schedule and to-do list, but herbs ans spices can help us modulate the negative effects of stress. They can help shift us from the fight-or-flight response of our sympathetic nervous system to the sleep at night and reduce levels of anxiety during the day. In combination with fresh local food they offer us high amounts of the vitamins and minerals needed to support our nervous system, and so our mental health as well.

Anxiety

Herbs are anti-microbial:

Some herbs and spices offer a powerful defence against pathogenic bacteria. As a bacteria have evolved, they’ve adapted to the pharmaceutical antibiotics we use. After decades of overuse of antibiotics, more and more bacteria no longer respond to treatment using antibiotics, people get antibiotic-resistant.

Plants have been changing and evolving with bacteria for millennia, they have a very complex system that may make it harder for pathogens to adapt to them.

Although it can be necessary to use pharmaceutical antibiotic for certain conditions, doing so can have a far-reaching negative effects, particularly on our gut flora, which is the beneficial bacteria in our digestive tract. Pharmaceutical antibiotics act by wiping out all bacteria, even the beneficial ones. Antibiotic after all means “anti-life”.

Spices can be strongly anti microbial without being “anti-life”, instead of “knocking out” everyting they come in contact with, plants can be chosen for the specific type of infection. Plants can also be very effective against viruses and fungal infections. Herbs can go beyond simply “killing” a pathogen and also support the ecosystem of the body, they can restore integrity to mucous membranes and support healthy gut flora.

Herbs and Spices

Herbs support the immune system:

Herbs can reinforce our health during times of infection by strengthening or modulating our body’s own immune system, which is our best defence against pathogens that leas to illness.

Immune system dysfunction can increase our risk of infection and is also implicated in cancer, autoimmune disorders and seasonal allergies.

Herbs and spices aid your health in myriad ways including strengthening your digestion, supporting your immune system and awakening your senses and bringin joy to your life.

To get the most benefits from herbs you’ll want to use them every day in good amounts, not just sprinkling a little bit of herbs and spices into your foods but rather using it as an opportunity to get an abundance of herbs into your life as a powerful way to bolster your health.

This is food as Medicine at its’ best!

Great immune system, great health!

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.
