Wisdom begins in a dark moment, when all is lost and life is an impossibility.

We feel scared.


And completely alienated.

Away from the familiar.

Stuck in an abyss with no way out.

And that is when it all begins.

The soul gets activated.

The mind joins and the brain adjusts to the inner shift.

That is what we call a miracle.

That is what we consider divine.

It all starts with the impossible.

I wish loss was not a necessity for the evolution of our world.

But I am afraid it is.

I wish that fear was not part of the package.

But I sense that without it we would not dare.

We would not risk.

And we would not find ourselves at the place where it all begins.

In that one dark moment.

Where we give birth to our wisdom.

It all starts with fear and ends with our soul bringing in the divine.

Don’t be afraid to be fearful.

Only fear certainty, as it can never lead you to your soul’s calling.


You were born to be courageous.

Remember where you come from,

and it will all make sense.

Fear is part of our DNA,

and loss is part of our evolution.

I have learned that fear has three different layers that you have to overcome.

First layer is thin and easy to penetrate we carry a lot of hope in the beginning. The second layer is where most people give up and backtrack their steps.

We change their minds here and our brain tells us that this is too difficult for us.

For those who continue to the third layer of fear they are met with the most difficult wall.

The wall of panic.

Sheer panic.

And we lose some folks right there, as panic is terrifying.

GIving up becomes the only option.

But here is what happens to those who overcome the sheer anxiety.

All of a sudden they find themselves in front of the dream, in front of the creation of their imagination.

They have arrived.

That is when they feel their power emerge, their inner strength getting activated.

As they have travelled too far, sacrificed too much to give up now.

And they take that one final step. They close their eyes and pray that they will find what they have always believed to have been there.

Their true life, their higher self and the unbelievable strength they carried within them while they journeyed through the walls of fear, during that dark moment we started with.

It all comes together then.

That is when the dream becomes a reality.

Please don’t ever give up.

Living fully is your birthright.
