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,

Choose your Self to Heal your Self

Most likely we all experienced this to a certain extent, living towards other’s expectations.

But does living towards other’s expectations or satisfying others makes You happy? No, it doesn’t.

It doesn’t make you happy, as you can’t live your True Self when you always try to satisfy others.

Actually it gives you inner stress and frustration, even though you might sometimes think it doesn’t. As you might not always be aware of it. It only comes to the surface now and then, when you try to think or analize why you feel this way.

The only way to Heal your Self is to choose for your Self, to choose for You, and what You want, and How you want things in your life.

Otherwise basically other people are controlling Your life. And you don’t have to allow that, you Should not allow that.

People Pleasing will never give You any satisfaction or the True Happiness you want in life. People Pleasing is exhausting! It exhausts your Soul as you give, and give and give. Your Soul gets drained, and then you start to feel it in your Physical as well.

If you recognise this, then start to choose for You. As you know perfectly well what is right for you, and what You want. You don’t need other people to tell you that.

Start to Heal your Self, choose for You and make You priority in Your life!

Valentine Self Love

Valentine’s Day is a day where we show our Love for our partner, husband, wife or even a family member or a good friend.

But what about your Self?

Self Love is one of the most important form of Love. As you can only truly share Love, in a genuine and Unconditional way, when you are able to Love your Self.

Self Love

You can’t share or give what you don’t have. So that works the same with Love. And you deserve to be loved by You!

Self Love comes together with acceptance. Acceptance for Who you truly are, how you look, how you do things, what you do and what doesn’t belong to you or suits you.

Self Love is not always easy as there is a lot of pressure from society, about how you should look, how you should do things, how successful you need to be, what you should have in material things….

It can be a hard way to walk away from all these expectations, but it’s not impossible. When you are able to truly accept You for being You, it’s actually very Healing. It gives a feeling of freedom as you don’t “have” to live anymore according other’s expectations, but just be You, your Natural You, your True Self.

So for Valentine’s Day, especially when you are single or don’t have a special loved one around you, do something for You.

Get yourself a bunch of Flowers or some Chocolate, go out for a nice meal or get something nice to eat at home, take a nice bath with some candles, go out and watch a movie or pick a nice one at home…..

Do something what you like, what you Love, what makes you feel good!

As Valentine’s Day is all about Love, extra attention for Love, so don’t forget your Self.

Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤️

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.
