The Unraveled Mind

“The world was peopled with minds, whirling faster than any wind, in search of distraction and escape from the predicament of change, the dilemma of life and death — seeking purpose, security, enjoyment, trying to make sense of the mystery. Everyone everywhere lived a confused, bitter search. Reality never matched their dreams; happiness was just around the corner — a corner they never turned.

And the source of it all was the human mind.” — Way of the peaceful warrior - Page 42

The way we live and what we believe it takes to attain an enjoyable life has blinded us. We have nurtured these beliefs for as long as we live.

We think we live now, but in reality we don't. We even need signs in our daily life to prevent injuries because we're not present. Like "Mind the step". 

Our ever wandering mind obscures the present moment, even when we're able to be present for a short time.

This creates a belief that the now is ordinary. As a consequence we're striving for seemingly higher things; things we estimate are more rewarding.

Discovering the ability to experience joy and happiness after years of battling depression gave birth to a profound shift in my life; igniting a sense of purpose that now drives me to share my experiences through “The Unraveled Mind”.

I support you with…

  • Understanding your emotional and cognitive world

  • Unveiling and working with deep-rooted beliefs that do not serve you

  • Finding purpose and motivation

  • Building up confidence

A decade of depression pushed me close to suicide. Joy wasn’t more than a fairy tale. If sharing my journey will make a difference to only 1 person, it will be worth the effort. This life is all we have. And happiness is everyone's birthright.
