48 Hours to Africa!

Imagine being in a gorgeous tropical island in the middle of the ocean and in 48 hours being dropped in one of most dangerous and most beautiful places in the planet – Africa!

We have spent the last 6 weeks in Bali meditating about life, redesigning this blog, practicing Yoga and embracing our new lifestyle. We have also been planning our next leg in our holistic healing journey – Africa!

Africa Route

The plan for Africa is to travel by motorcycle across the continent. We will start in Cape Town and from there we will travel north. As of today we are not completely sure how far north we will be able to reach, however, if the political situations, weather and safety permit we plan to reach Egypt.

Over the last 6 months our focus has been to find our internal Self. We visited spiritual places, we embraced spiritual practices and have traveled within ourselves through meditation and other techniques such as Yoga Nidra. Now we plan to travel outside ourselves and to help other people.

Every year in Africa over 200 million people get infected with malaria and of those more than 500,000 people die. The shocking part about these statistics is that malaria is a preventable and curable disease. The saddest part is that over 90% of the of the people who die are children below the age of 5. Malaria is the number 1 killer in Africa and we want to do something about it.

Through this blog, social media and traditional media we plan to increase awareness about this deadly diseases and motivate people like you to take action to help eradicate this disease. We have started to develop online tools to facilitate knowledge sharing about new strategies to fight this diseases.  If you are interested to learn more about our initiative or are interested in supporting us please leave a comment below or send us a message.

Today we are starting to pack. Last night was difficult to sleep. Maybe because we don’t know what to expect upon arrival in Africa. Traveling by motorcycle is not easy and is not the safest method of transportation. So we are in this emotional roller coaster of excitement and doubt – are we really doing this???

12 Special Moments in 2012

According to the Mayan calendar, an era in humanity’s history ended on December 21, 2012.  After this date, begins a new 5,125-year cycle. This transition marked a shift in human consciousness. Researchers devoted to the study of consciousness and evolution say that a large segment of humanity will not be ready for this evolutionary leap, but those who are will be in a place to help those souls who are still focused on war, conflict and segregation. People who are already making this evolutionary shift will pave the way for others to move towards “unity” and “oneness”.

It is an interesting coincidence that in 2012 we decided to radically change our lives and that this thought crossed our minds in Mexico, close to where the ancient Mayan civilization settled.

We hope that in 2013 we see more natural holistic healing methods preventing diseases, people becoming more spiritual, and resources being channeled to those who need it the most.

We leave you with a summary of 12 special moments in 2012 and with a prayer to achieve true freedom through love in 2013.
