Tijmsiroop


Omdat tijm van oorsprong een mediterraans kruid is werd het vroeger bij de Romeinen al vaak gebruikt voor helende doeleinden. Zo verwerkten ze tijm in hum zeep vanwege de desinfecterende en helende werking. Romeinse soldaten namen dan weer stimuleren tijmbaden voor ze ten strijde trokken. Tijm stond dan ook symbool voor moed en dapperheid. De oude Egyptenaren gebruikten tijm dan weer in combinatie met andere kruiden tijdens het balsemen van hun overledenen.

Bij het gewone volk werd het gebruikt als middel tegen kwalijke geuren en om ziektes te bestrijden. Tijm en Knoflook werden de "antibiotica" van de lagere klasse genoemd.

Tijmsiroop

Op een bepaalde dag, een paar jaar terug, had mijn zoontje last van een erge verkoudheid. Hoewel we via de dokter wel siroop hadden gekregen; bracht deze ’s nachts maar weinig soelaas. Zo ben ik beginnen zoeken naar wat ik mogelijk zelf kon doen en kwam zo volgend recept tegen. Dit recept maak ik sindsdien elke koude periode, als verkoudheden terug de kop op steken.

Basisrecept

Kook 200ml water met 100gr suiker en voeg daar 10gr tijm aan toe. Laat dit even koken. Laat het mengsel daarna trekken en bekoelen voor +- 30min. Giet het mengsel nu af door een zeef of handdoek en voeg 50ml honing toe. Bewaar de siroop in goed afgedekte potjes in de frigo.

Hoeveelheid inname:

  • Kinderen < 3 jaar: 3ml per dag tot 3 maal per dag
  • Kinderen > 3 jaar: 5ml per dag tot 3 maal per dag.
  • Volwassenen: 1 eetlepel tot 4 maal der dag.
Vraag bij kinderen jonger dan 6 maanden altijd eerst raad aan een dokter.

Zelf gebruik ik de siroop enkel bij het slapengaan. De tijm zorgt ervoor dat de luchtwegen verwijden en de honing helpt de bacteriën af te weren en de keel te smeren. Zo heeft u of uw kind minder last van hoestprikkels tijdens het slapen. Voor een extra rustgevend effect kan u ook 3gr kamille aan het kookmengsel toevoegen. Kamille wekt de slaap op en helpt bij rusteloosheid en nachtmerries. Daarnaast kan het ook helpen tegen alle mogelijke maagkrampen. Zie hiervoor ook Venkel en Anijs.

Als je de siroop slecht vindt smaken kan je de gewenste hoeveelheid mengen met een beetje fruitsap. Beiden zijn zoet, maar de fruitsmaak overheerst de smaak van de siroop. Bij jonge kinderen kan je de siroop ook aan een flesje melk toevoegen. In dat geval raad ik wel aan extra te zeven (bvb door een katoenen zakdoek of handdoek), zodat er geen kruidenresten achterblijven die de papfles doen verstoppen.

My designs of the last year
Some examples of my designed thumbnails - #designchallenge   To participate in the design challenge I thought it would be nice to show you some pictures of what I made in the last year ^^! First and foremost, we have the one I am personally very proud of! This was made for a web series when the time was. I had to beat this giant snake in the series. The reason I'm so proud of this is because of the work that was in it. On the left is the image I designed and on the right is the snake I used as an asset. As you can see, in front of the snake there was a man I had to get rid of. Of course when you cut out a part this is just gone in photoshop, so I had to fill in the teeth and the mouth manually. So you can see that there's often hours of work in something you can't even see ^^ This one is also one of my personal favorites! This was for a show with a very good friend of mine. In the series we played the game “Raft” and the game “Sea of Thieves”. We had a lot of fun and we could have taken this picture that I had edited later than ^^ Of course, one grows in the hobbies and passions that one does. With this I would like to show you a designed image that I am not so proud of, especially... This one, it was one of my first images for Peaceful Potato. Personally, I'm not a fan of it.. It also doesn't fit in the style I normally do and the proportions look a bit awkward. I am happy with the progress I have already made. I personally think of myself that you can clearly see here that I have grown a lot and improved in creating thumbnails. As the last thumbnail I would like to show, we have. This one was fun to make with that it was for my community. In my community, we have a game that we play where people can represent games and I play it. Of course there are fun games in between but also games like “My Little Pony” that they suggested to mess with me a bit in a funny way! I think you can clearly see that I have a certain style, I am quite proud of the fact that I can make this but I am also aware that I have a lot to learn ^^ Hieronder kan je nog een paar voorbeelden zien, hopelijk vind je het wat! ^^

Crisis The Ultimate Moment To Create A New Reality
I've been feeling for months that there's something completely new to do. Completely away from the existing concepts. Already from March last year, when I was still in Spain where even the army was walking down the streets, I immediately felt peace: 'This is the intention'. And even though I saw a lot of things wrong in the world, I also felt “I don't have to fight.”. That felt pretty contradictory; if I don't fight then I'm gonna let this happen when I feel it's not right. huh? I didn't really understand that. I'm gonna get something out of the way? Don't I dare to face the confrontation? I even participated in a manifestation a few months ago to feel if I didn't have to stir up the rebel within myself. But I didn't feel it there, no matter how well-intentioned, I felt that it wasn't my place. From Your Comfort Zone - Last week the quarter really fell. Fight is not the answer. And don't think about what needs to be done either. Because we can only think of that in existing frameworks and concepts, within the current system. And then you end up thinking the same thing, but with a different sauce. The real renewal is in the transformation from THINK to BE and from there CONNECT. Yeah, now it might be a little soaring for some of you. But more natural and grounder I can't actually make it. It's about presence and about the energy field. Everything in the end is energy. Where my attention is going is what comes. This is a fact that I have often used in my life, for my art, in how I do business and how I live. That was pretty comfortable in my own bubble. Create on my own square meter. I even sat on a mountain in Spain for it. Because I thought I'd better get as far away from the system as possible so I could create my own reality. And I think for sure it helped me in the beginning to experiment without too many stimuli from the outside world. But I didn't come back for nothing, I also felt that I had to do something at the bottom of that mountain, in the world.. And I obviously chose a wonderful moment for that. 𝐒𝐭𝐨𝐩𝐩𝐞𝐧 𝐦𝐞𝐭 (𝐛𝐞)𝐝𝐞𝐧𝐤𝐞𝐧, 𝐞𝐧 𝐭𝐢𝐣𝐝 𝐦𝐚𝐤𝐞𝐧 𝐨𝐦 𝐭𝐞 𝐞𝐱𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐧 - What this situation requires is new, also for me. It's about creation in the complete field, the bigger picture. And I know by now, if I can't, I only have one thing to do: stop thinking and make time to experiment! The two of you are putting a field* ten times easier so that's how I sat on the couch with my love on Sunday evening. We experimented with feeling a new intention, purely to feel a new energy field and connect with it. With what our heads can't think of anymore. That went amazingly easy. Pure that intention was all that was needed, immediately I felt tingling, my head opening as if I had no skull anymore, I felt that together we were dissolving a kind in the energy. It took maybe only 15 minutes but it also felt crystal clear for both of us: This is what we are going to do; BEING in not knowing, but practicing, playing, feeling and experiencing! 𝐍𝐢𝐞𝐮𝐰𝐞 𝐰𝐞𝐫𝐤𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐣𝐤𝐡𝐞𝐢𝐝, 𝐧𝐢𝐞𝐮𝐰𝐞 𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐫𝐠𝐢𝐞! - The coincidence wanted (yes synchronicity is brilliant) that I could practice with this field the next day because I went to the office for the first time in six years! I took my jacket out of the mothballs, and I went to do another - for my - very old system in. After an exciting brainstorming session I drove back home; an intense sense of happiness flooded me. I literally felt that I wasn't in the old field anymore. I felt a new reality (I know, this is with words not explaining but I'm just trying). It was like looking into the world with new eyes. I was in the existing system. I drove home with working Netherlands on the highway. But it felt completely different, as if I had driven into another reality. A parallel life that always existed next to the life I knew. I've been laughing in my car. I came home really euphorically. This is what we can all do! Get our energy out of the old system. Just that, without finding any of that system (because then I'm already there with my energy). No: just focus the energy and my attention on the reality that also wants to be created and which I do not yet know at all. If we all pull our energy away from the drama that currently controls our lives and timelines, then it simply doesn't exist anymore. There really is no need for a trial or demonstration. Not a drop of blood to flow. How genius is that! Out of the head, no more thinking or fighting. And yes: this is new. You may never have done or felt this before. Sitting in the field and not knowing is mega exciting, because you don't know, you don't know what's going to happen or what that looks like or how it should feel. But that's just the right thing, if you knew it, you would still be in an existing concept. It is in surrender inviting a new reality. Ohhh what do I feel to the depths of my cells that this is exactly what needs to be done. So I invite you with all my heart to experiment! *I just got the question, 'what is a field put?'. I'm going to make an attempt to explain. It's about energy. The best way to feel and try yourself is to hold your hand in front of you with the palm up. Now feel the space 5 centimeters above your palm. Yes, exactly, I ask you to feel the space above your hand.. If you do that, you will find that you do feel something. So you can feel something outside your body with energy and your attention. By putting your attention so strongly on that energy around you, you turn the energy field on as it were. This makes the field that is always around you really felt for you and you can start playing with it. Pure by putting an intention, a thought, puts your energy in the field. Without steering, purely surrender to everything you do not know is allowed to happen; -) Let the magic begin!
