United Kingdom, September 2022 – GHP Magazine has announced the winners of the 2022 Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Awards.

Over recent years, the health and wellbeing of millions around the world has been under threat due to the pandemic – however, it is thanks to the innovations and resilience of those working within the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries that the public are protected from a number of viruses, with access to some of the latest, most cutting-edge healthcare and pharmaceutical solutions.

Now running in its eighth year, Global Health & Pharma’s Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Awards are designed to recognise and award companies and individuals who served a variety of purposes during the pandemic. From researching and developing innovative pharmaceutical products that can be useful for those who may have contracted the virus to providing exceptional healthcare services to patients.

GHP Magazine, as always, endeavours to recognise those that are going above and beyond, or indeed, the businesses that are leading the industry forward, no matter how small their contributions might seem on the greater landscape. That’s why we launched our awards programme, and why we continue to spotlight the work of exceptional companies and individuals.

Our Awards Coordinator, Katherine Benton has commented on the success of the awards programme: “It has been a delight to reach out and work alongside everyone who has been recognised in this year’s Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Awards.

How to Balance your Throat Chakra

How to Balance your Throat Chakra

Psychology of the Throat Chakra & How to Create Balance

Communication * Expression * Empowerment

 

What is the Vishuddha Chakra?

Visha = impurity, poison Shuddhi = purification

The Throat Chakra, or Vishuddhi Chakra is located at the larynx, in the upper 3 chakras, and is considered the center of physical and spiritual purification.

Considered the “soul’s gate”, as the throat is a bridge connecting the emotions of the heart and the thoughts of the head,

Our throat chakra is our center of communication, creativity, will, speech, self-expression. deep listening.

It represents our ability to speak our truth, to speak up for ourselves, to say what’s truly important.

 

Psychology of the Throat Chakra

 

The throat chakra is a powerful energy center that allows or blocks the flow of prana – life force energy – throughout our entire energy system.  

When the Throat Chakra is balanced and healthy, prana flows and you feel energized and bright. When this chakra is stressed.or out of balance, you can feel drained and stressed.

 

As the center of will power, creativity, self-expression and communication, the throat chakras governs how we bring what we experience on the inside into the outer world:  how open and vibrant this chakra is, impacts how how we give voice to the self, to our emotions, and how we allow or prevent creative ideas, energies, visions and dreams to flow and manifest.

 

The Throat Chakra feels most open, when our hearts are relaxed and we are in a full state of allowing ourselves to Be. When we restrict, control or hold back any parts of ourselves, we compromised the throat chakra’s balance.

When the throat chakra is out of balance, it can manifest as emotional dysregulation,  addiction, self-doubt, judgment gossip, negative speech, self-censoring  – all of which are acts of control that shut down the throat. 

 

How do you know if your chakras are open or blocked?

When your chakras are balanced and healthy, life experiences are digested with ease and enable you to grow. 

 

However, chronic and unresolved conflict, stress, negative self-eliefs systemstraumatic past life experiences that are left unprocessed or unexpressed, undigested can lead to any given given chakra being imbalanced, blocked, damaged or dysfunctional – expressing as either  overactive or understactive, and leading to significant physical, emotiona, and mental health challenges.

 

Trauma, unresolved conflicts, karmic and past life circumstances, belief systems and/or chronic behavioral patterns cause imbalances, blockages, and/or damage in the chakras.

 

When our throat chakra is open and balanced, it can be expressed as:

  • sense of feeling worthy
  • healthy self-confidence / self-acceptance
  • authenticity
  • ability to express our truths
  • ability to listen to our inner voice
  • ideas, hopes and dreams are flowing
  • verbalising and expressing needs, desires and opinions

 

When the throat chakra is closed, or out of balance, it can be expressed as:

  • trauma and unresolved conflict
  • excessive talking
  • arrogance
  • habitual dishonesty / manipulation
  • controlling behaviour
  • timidity
  • hurtful, mean or gossiping words
  • addiction
  • judgement of self and others
  • blocked creative flow

 

Core wounds of the Throat Chakra

Core wounds at the level of the throat chakra, can manifest as

  • feeling of not trusting in what you believe
  • not trusting that you deserve to be heard
  • shutting down and not getting your needs met,
  • feeling of continued disappointments and dissatisfaction in life

 

Throat Chakra Imbalance in the Body

In our body, the throat chakra most influences the neck, shoulders and upper back.

 

Deficiencies in the throat chakra can lead to:

  • thyroid imbalance
  • hearing problems
  • ear infection
  • chronic throat conditions
  • neck and shoulder pain,

 

How to balance the throat chakra

  • sing, hum, chant
  • deep breathing
  • rest your voice
  • hydrate
  • conscious jaw relaxation
  • stop judging yourself and others
  • allow yourself to share your thoughts and ideas
  • speak your truth

 

Yoga poses to help balance the throat chakra:

  • head and neck rolls
  • fish pose
  • lions breath
  • plough pose
  • shoulders tand
  • headstand

6 Simple Rituals to Make your Summer Solstice Magic

6 Simple Rituals to Help Make your Summer Solstice Magic

 

Solstice brings us a shift in light and a change in seasons, no matter where you are in the world.

On this day every year, the sun reaches the highest point in the sky, and the power of the sunlight has reached its full bloom.

This time of illumination can help us to reflect on what’s ripening in your life,

help to acknowledge, appreciate and celebrate the fruits of your efforts thus far,

and inspire you to re-ignite your vision for the rest of the year. 👁

To welcome and celebrate 🎉 this day of light, consider taking time for some nourishing rituals; anything from a simple sacred pause to gathering together with your people, your community or tribe to offer your full presence to honouring the light within.

 

 

6 Simple Rituals to Help Make
your Summer Solstice Magic

☀️ HONOUR THE SUN

Connect to the power of the sun and allow yourself to enter the full light of your being. Build an altar to the sun, fully elcome in the light of day, or try a few sun salutations to draw in the power and energy of the all-giving sun

🤩 MEDITATE ON JOY + GRATITUDE

Practicing gratitude is the ultimate prayer and the ultimate state of receivership – allow yourself to be in a state of gratitude and count your blessings. What are you grateful for?

✍️JOURNAL
Take some minutes to reflect on the last 3 or 6  months in your life:
– What’s ripening in your life right now?
– What are the fruits of your efforts that you are celebrating?
– What is your vision for the rest of the year? How do you want to feel? What do you want to create?

🔥 MAKE A FIRE

Make a fire, transform what no longer serves, or simply light a candle the let the warmth of the light warm your soul

🎼 CULTIVATE GOOD VIBES

Gather together with people who light you up Connect to nature’s vibrations through sound and silence.  Listen to some awesome sacred sounds.  This Yoga Playlist is one of my favs.

✨ CAST SPELLS & NURTURE YOUR DREAMS

Words are energy. With them, we can cast spells. Journal about what you are calling in, and the vision you are re-igniting.  Which project, relationship or aspect of your life would you like to see flourish? How do you plan to show up for this?

Get Clear for the New Year with Be.Do.Have

Get Clear for the New Year with Be.Do.Have

Get Clear with Be.Do.Have

An Uncomplicated Way to Gain Clarity and Achieve your Goals

The Be Do Have model is one of my favorite rituals for programming my inner GPS with where I want to go, and what changes I want to integrate in my life.  

 

It’s a widely used coaching tool, that I came across in the Conversations with God books once upon a dream.  

 

I find this model to be very helpful in getting you feeling more clear in any area of your life.  Once you get clear, it becomes easier to establish – who do I need to be in order to get these goals accomplished.

 

The key is to keep it simple, avoid overthinking, just write down as honestly as you can the top 3-5 things that come to your mind for each category.  This is for you to save to your desktop and refer back to through the year, to add to, like a compass guiding your way home….

 

 

Be – Create a way of being that’s aligned to your visions and Goals

This section is who you are aspiring to become, who you are cultivating being, how you’d like to behave.

Write at least 3  “I am” statements.  E.g. I am Abundant, I am totally perfect and whole as I am.  I am generous, I am clear, I am in flow

…..or whatever resonates for you

 

 

Do – How your way of being propels you into action

This section is what you’d like to make happen,  to accomplish, to experience

 

 

Have – the results of your action will bring you to this goal

This is what you’d like to achieve

 

Once you get clear, it becomes easier to establish – Who do I need to be in order to get these goals accomplished?

 

The key is to keep it simple! Avoid overthinking,

 

Just write down as honestly as you can, in the present tense the top 3-5 things that come to your mind for each category.

 

This is for you to save to your desktop and refer back to through the year, to add to, like a compass guiding your way home….

“To love means to open ourselves to the negative as well as the positive – to grief, sorrow, and disappointment as well as to joy, fulfilment, and an intensity of consciousness we did not know was possible before”― Rollo May



Love and New Moon blessings beautiful soul.

How are you in this time of Corona?

Many things I imagine….

All is welcome here.  I feel it’s super important to acknowledge and allow the full spectrum of thoughts and feelings that are arising within you, and to know and trust that

However you’re feeling is totally and completely valid and ok. 

Being present to what is, in these ever-unfolding times, can truly help to create the conditions in which you can maintain an open heart in the face of the ever-unfolding challenges, gifts and opportunities of the NEW now.

New moons are a powerful time to reflect, to cultivate our inner gardens – weeding and plant seeds and it’s a cosmically supported time to pray. 

Today, I invite you to offer a simple prayer:
 

Close your eyes for a moment
Soften your belly
Take a deep breath in and out
Feel into your heart
and offer a simple prayer from your heart:

May I, my loved ones, and all beings be 
happy
healthy
balanced
at ease
respectful
loving
kind
…and anything else you feel to add…
in this time.


This is a simple way for us to be in service to the highest good.

Thank you for doing that. 


We are living in truly extraordinary times.


The world is changing in a unique, profound and unprecedented way. 

This moment is calling for a paradigm shift – a new way of seeing and being in the world,

a way that embraces connection, community, co-creation, compassion and love.

It is incredible to see people from all over the world:

unifying, adapting, sharing, releasing, respecting, rising, awakening,

harmonising, integrating, reflecting, transforming,

grieving, dreaming, praying, evolving,

and demonstrating such a unified field of compassion for the most vulnerable.


Self-Connect: Practical Ideas to take a Purposeful Pause


To best approach this time of transition with balance,strength and ease,

it’s important to prepare ourselves spiritually, physically and emotionally.

What better way to stay strong, centred, balanced, calm, connected and at ease than with Yoga, Music & Meditation?!

We all have an opportunity right now to take pause, while Mother Earth takes a much needed breath. 

We get to choose mindful moments to reflect, educate ourselves, stay healthy and happy. 

I highly recommend that you create a daily rhythm & schedule for yourself to practice, learn, do nothing, exercise…  Very grounding!  Within that framework, there are infinite ways to self-connect. For example:

– Journal – 5 mins a day is plenty.  Get it flowing.  These are historic times.
– Listen to music – Sing along, dance alone, Yoga along
– Call a friend from way-back-when,
– Check in with your karma Yoga buddy – if you were a student here before…

– Pick oracle cards: I love these right now
 Wisdom of the Oracle – Collette Baron
– Take an online class
– Meditate

– Do Yoga – Stay grounded and open in your body.

Love & Inspiration #45

Love & Inspiration #45

Here are your fresh Love & Inspirations for the week ahead:

1) Quote

  • Instead of measuring success in practicing a yoga posture by how far we go, we can ask how present we are in each moment. How aware are we of the movement of our breath, the sensations in our body, and the thoughts that pass through us? Instead of judging the correctness of a yoga posture by how we look, we can inquire what positioning makes us feel most integrated and honours rather than injures our unique physical body. If we are ill or emotionally overwhelmed, how skilfully can we make this challenge grist for the mill? Instead of, “How many hours did I spend meditating today, ” we can ask, “How did I live my practice in every moment of the day?” Something is tragically missing in our spiritual practice if through our most diligent efforts we manage to become a perfect yoga posture, rather than a person.”     – Donna Farhi 


 

2) Yoga 101:  Namaste

Namaste is generally the first and last greeting you hear shared in a Yoga class.

 

 

It’s the common form of greeting in many south Asian and Hindu cultures and countries such as Nepal,  and India – the birthplace of Yoga.

Often accompanied by a slight bow, and hand gesture, anjali mudra, where hands are brought together in a prayer like position in front of the heart, to symbolise heart connection, honouring, worshiping, prayer, balance, union of dual nature, humility and internal focus

On a very simple level, namaste is a greeting – a gesture of acknowledgement and way of saying “hello”.

On a deeper more esoteric level, Namaste is  a deep recognition of the interconnected nature of being human.

3) Podcast I’m binging on:

My dear sister Sofia Arajuo of Swara Yoga sent me this podcast a couple weeks back and I’ve been seriously enjoying the stories, research and discussion around the taboos of Yoga.  

Whiie I don’t agree with or endorse all of the opinions expressed here, I do appreciate the importance of shedding light, and raising questions and discussion around these important and fascinating topic areas living modern Yoga’s shadow:

from spiritual bypassing and cultural appropriation, to Karma Capitalism, corrupt Gurus, whether white women “killed yoga”, and what a Yogic diet really means.

 

 

4) Book I’m Reading / Loving

Yoga mythology nerds – this one is for you.  I’m loving this book which s filled with rich and colourful, myth and meditation.  It’s been recommended to me for years by fellow Yoga teacher friends of mine, and I am grateful to now finally be delving in.  

How do you live a life of spiritual awakening as well as outer abundance, inner freedom as well as deep intimacy? How do you serve the world selflessly, yet passionately celebrate your life?

The sages of Tantra have known for centuries that when you follow the path of Shakti―the sacred feminine principle personified by the goddesses of yoga―these gifts can manifest spontaneously. Yet most of us, women as well as men, have yet to experience the full potential of our inner feminine energies. When you know these powers for what they are, they heighten your capacity to open spiritually, love more deeply and fearlessly, create with greater mastery, and move through the world with skill and delight. 

 

 

5) Music Playlist

Love & Inspiration #45

Love & Inspiration #44

Here are your fresh Love & Inspirations for the week ahead:

 

1) Quotes I’m pondering from Joseph Campbell 

  • “The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek”.  Joseph Campbell

    “Take one step towards the gods and they will take ten steps towards you.” – Joseph Campbell

 

2) Blog & Mantra for Inner Peace

In Nepal, where I am currently visiting, you can hear this mantra on repeat everywhere you.  In all of the temples and shrines you can spin the prayer wheels, which all have this sacred mantra imprinted on it.

In many ancient cultures and traditions,  the lotus flower is considered a symbol of purity, enlightenment, awakening, perfection, and rebirth and serves as a metaphor for life,

Rooted in the mud, the lotus draws energy from the muddy waters below and grows towards the light,d transforming into a beautiful flower

The journey of the lotus from the darkness of the mud to the light of the sun is a perfect metaphor for the human condition,. We often forget that we are divine beings with seeds of infinite potential waiting to blossom within our hearts.

Read on to discover the lessons of the lotus.

 

 

 

3)Power of Prayer Flags

If you’ve been to our studio in Thailand, you’ll have noticed hundreds of Tibetan prayer flags – horizontal flags in sets of 5,  strewn around our space. After each retreat, we have our retreat students hang the Lung-ta, infused with their prayers and intentions to offer to help people around the world be happy and free from suffering.

Here in Nepal, they are everywhere.

Here is a picture from my recent trip to the VajraYogini Temple in Nepal:

 

 

It is said that these flags bring benefit to all, promoting compassion, peace, strength, and wisdom, and are used to carry prayers and mantras through the wind. 

Colour represent the 5 elements:

  • Blue – the sky and space
  • White – the air and wind
  • Red – fire
  • Green – water
  • Yellow – Earth

 

4) Gods & Goddess Study Guide

This book is proving to be an excellent companion for helping to understand even an iota of the depth and scope of symbolism, religion, history and syncretism characteristic of the culture and it’s people.

 

 

5) Music

LOVE this song as a reminder of the beauty and gift of life. I often feature it in the savasana portion of the Yoga classes i share.

 

Hope you enjoyed this week’s Love & Inspiration.

So much LOVE, Gratitude & Blessings to you,

XOXO
