Every 40 seconds someone takes their own life. Every 40 seconds. More than 700,000 of us take their own lives every year. And many more attempt it. Our world has so much suffering, so much pain, so much mental suffering. The real pandemic, the real terrorist, is the one raging in our minds. I have faced darkness. My story comes from darkness. 21 years ago..my wife took her life – she was one of those 700,000, the love of my life…. she jumped from the 8th floor down. I was left alone with four kids to bring up. I had lost the love of my life. This beautiful soul who I was with for 15 years. Gone. This was life beyond tears. I was hopeless. Powerless. I couldn’t do anything. I was not only heartbroken but deeply deeply depressed. Powerless. Numb. In great despair. I know what it feels like to loss everything, to be in deep despair, uncertain about what the day may hold, not knowing what to do. I have been there. My kids made me survive but nature healed me. Nature provided me with insights and answers. I went within. Deep within myself. I had to go on this path. To show the world that we don’t have to powerless in the face of death, in the face of darkness. We do not need to be powerless in the face of depression, fear, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, Bipolar, schizophrenia . To bring purpose and sense. In this world full of confusion, hatred, division. Greed and corruption. No! Enough of this! To heal and become aware. And to take away the darkness. This is my purpose I want to share with you. #freezehof is an opportunity for us all to come together. Come together as one. Standing together as one. United. Free. Joyful. And with purpose in our hearts. We will rid the world of darkness. I promise you. What I can do. Anyone can do. I will show you. Guide you. Teach you. Come with me on this journey. The power is within us all. ===== Participate in the challenge and call out a mate (or two) and if you know someone who is struggling, take them on in your journey. #freezehof #40seconds https://whitecloudfoundation.org/donate ===== Want to discover & learn more about the Wim Hof Method?
