I lost something, or at least somebody lost something that was mine which could lead to my first question. What does it mean to be mine or what would I need to do to call something mine.
But that shall be the topic of another episode.
All my German Podcast episodes have been deleted by accident and the Podcast provider does not have any backups. This made me think about win and loss in life and what it actually means if something is not there anymore.
I became ver clear that you just need to look at the atomic or the energetic level to see that nothing is ever lost. It is only transferred to a different level. Nothing is ever gone, it is only somewhere else. That also means that now thought or no person is ever lost. They just don’t exist in the known form anymore.
They transferred into something new. That means in the contrary that every ending is aways the start of a new beginning as well. Whenever you lose something you will gain something else. Keep your eyes open what it might be.
Real man are not fearful, right?
I am not so sure about this. As fear is one the most natural feeling that was guaranteeing the survival of mankind for millenia, it is important to as well have fear, feel fear and even express fear.
It is a sign to us to be careful and cautious about somthing.
Way more important than the feeling itself is what you will do with it. As fear comes from deep inside, from your unconscious mind, it is a feeling that is trying to protect you as your unsconscious always wants your best
Unfortunately it only knows what is best based on what it already knows. That means for you, that every time that you leave your comfort zone fear pops up and tries to warn you of something. Growth only happens, when you leave your comfort zone every once in while and then it is up top you how you go on from there.
For you that means no growth without fear.
I shattered my comfort zone multiple times in the last weeks… but listen yourself.
When I took these picture I wasn’t sailing yet but I made all the agreements to bring my boat to the Mediterranean and splash it in Bandol.
Just wanted to make sure that you have a first impression why I am so excited to start my journey here.
Image you were forever alive. Imagine you’d have to live with all the consequences of your actions. For ever?
Now let us bring that one step further. Imagine you were all the same. Whatever you would do to someone or something else you would do to yourself.
Would that influence your actions?
Momentarily I am reading the book: “An End to Upside Down Thinking: Dispelling the Myth That the Brain Produces Consciousness, and the Implications for Everyday Life” by Mark Gober.
He states that the brain is not creating consciousness but that conscioussnes does exist outside of the material body and in fact is creating everything else.
The one theory that most of these thoughts are based on, is that everything that can be proven by science can only be validated by our conscious mind. There is no proof that anything could ever be validated without a conscious mind to validate it.
We can imagine such a scenario and based on our findings now is has to be exactly the same without our conscious mind. sounds logical but is impossible to be proven. One thing we can not explain so far is how consciousness evolved and how it is created. Almost all aspects of life in this physical world can be explained, but not consciousness.
The foundation of our science is the validation by our consciousness.
Consciousness is proclaimed to be caused by us (our brain) but cannot be proven.
Therefor our whole scientific belief system of the physical worls is based on the one thing that cannot be explained by it and yet is generally considered to the cause for exactly that, our conscious mind.
If you look at it this way it can‘t make sense, therefor the explanation of Makr Gober is to turn it around and say: first was consciousness and it created everything else.
We still don‘t know where it comes from but all of a sudden the scientific system makes sense and errors like the difference between the theorie of relativity and quantum mechanics won‘t cause the whole theoretic system to collapse.
Furthermore the supernatural things that occur in life also make sense.
It would indeed mean something more:
It is not us, it is not me, who created my conscious mind which is different from everybody elses. It would mean that there is only one consciousness, that decided to become partially me in this physical (or physical imagined) world, as well as anybody and anything else on earth.
As a consequence of these thoughts my conscious mind or if you will my soul will never die and might come back in a different packing multiple times. You might live with the results of your actions for eternity. Imagine now, the whole physical world and the life within does only have the one reason, to help the universal consciousness grow….
What would that mean for you and your life?

I am finally done planning the Kilimanjaro Tour 2019.
While I already communicated the idea and the rough dates before, the planning has finished now.
The Kilimanjaro Tour 2019 will take place from June 1st to 16th 2019.
Not only the summit of Kilimanjaro is this tours special to offer. We will hike for 10 days in total with a 2 days break in between. On the first 4 days we will summit the neighboring Mt Meru followed by 6 days on Mt Kilimanjaro.
You might wonder why I am planning to offer a Kilimanjaro tour in 2019 and haven’t done that much earlier.
The simple reason is that I received my initial inspiration and advice while becoming a coach from a friend who did Kilimanjaro tours himself. For me it was crystal clear to not interfere with a similar product as long as he is offering the same. I never tried to become a copy and never did. I had to go my own way and learned my lessons in Sahara over the last years. As my friend suddenly announced to discontinue his Kili tours, I was asked by people who planned to go with him in the first place if we wouldn’t go together. After all had I several years of experience in Tanzania by now, visited the Kilimanjaro region before and flew multiple times just across the rim leaving me questioning when I will stand on that rim myself. Due to my experience in Tanzania I have a pretty good team to rely on by now.
When I was a child I was amazed by Africa. When I thought about it, three things came to my mind:
- Ngorongoro Crater
When I traveled South of the Sahara for the first time in my life, I visited Zanzibar, saw Mt Kilimanjaro & Mt Meru, went to Serengeti & Ngorongoro and knew immediately that I will be back. Especially summiting Kilimanjaro has been on my bucket list ever since.
Why also Mt Meru?
Because it is the prettier route. While Kili is more abut the size and being the largest in Africa, the Meru is nicer to climb and offers the more spectacular view, especially a cloud free view on Kilimanjaro at sunrise. It is also less traveled, as well as a perfect acclimatization, for the altitude as well as for the culture. Even for me it is a culture clash, every single time that I visit East Africa.
Almost everything is different and I believe it would be a shame to let all that fascinating cultural experience be waisted by joining the very touristic Kili ascendent ride away. Let us enjoy land, people, culture and scenery some more days and get accustomed to the altitude on a slightly lower mountain. We will have better focus, concentration, joy and breath when starting the summit of the big one?
one tour or each year?
I don’t know yet if it will be the spiritual journey that I am expecting. I am not and I will not be a travel agent. I do extraordinary self awareness seminars and I choose special places as the seminar place.
If I won’t feel a vibe as strong as in Sahara or if I am not at my best, I won’t do the tour again.
This is the main reason for the special price which will only be available this time. Either the price will go up to reasonable amount for a two week, life changing double summit coaching seminar or it will remain the only one.
As I write this I am only accepting two more applications for the trip. So if you are thinking about it, hurry up.
special facts about this years team
We will go with a very experienced and nice guide Philemon on both tours, we will have a medical doctor with us who has experience in high altitude medicine and tropical medicine. She is also a fluent swahili speaker. I have several years business experience in Tanzania and we will have local backup support by my long time local manager and business partner.
I am sure it will be a blast. Let me know when you want to be on the team.
While planning is mostly done in our frontal cortex, the conscious mind, intuition or gutt feeling is more of an unconscious process.
While for a large part of my life I was sure that the more knowledge I have, the better decisions I can take and therefor become a better person, this belief changed over the last years.
I had to learn that although our conscious decisions seem to make so much sense, our unconsious is really in charge.
When conscious mind is in charge of the navigation, the unconscious is the running the boat, being the skipper. As long as we don’t convince the skipper that our navigation is correct, we can calculate as much as we want and will still never change the course.
Therefor it is not so much a question of planning VERSUS intuition but more planning AND intuition.
Make plans and take decisions what to do and then check back with your intuition if this is the right way to go. Be careful, it speaks in a very soft voice and when you hear it trust your gutt. Your unconscious always wants to protect you and will be your strongest supporter if you act accordingly.
Have you ever traveled with high expectations and where amazed to find everything much more beautiful than you expected?
I visited Corsica at the end of September. My plan was originally to be on my tiny wooden boat somewhere in the North Sea and sail due South in September. But as it wouldn‘t swim yet, due to the cracks in the hull, I had to postpone my plans a bit. The main problem turned out to be, that I couldn‘t work at the marina where it is located at the moment.
Therefor I need a trailer to move it…
That turned out to be a bit tricky and the one I ordered is not finished as I am writing this.
Since I have to move the boat anyway, I thought about bringing it directly to the Mediterranean as winter is coming soon in the North. As I love France and especially the Provence I thougth about launching the boat there and start my journey towards Corsica as soon as the boat is fit.
While I can’t sail at the moment and have to wait for the trailer anyway, I decided to go to Corsica and have a look myself. I figured it would make a wonderful place for the joined sailing trips with my supporters in 2019. Be exited!
As you can see below, it looks remarkable and about the plan to splash the boat in Provence… I‘ll write in another article.
And now have a look at that beautiful island:
I am so lucky and honored that I meet the people I do. While still living in the „Jungfrau Skiing Area“ in Lauterbrunnen in the winter of 2015/16 I decided one day to register for the online class of Mike Mandel & Chris Thompson and it blue my mind. The content was superb and the way that the two where presenting it resonated with me so well that I wanted to train with them personally.
Therefor the first country I traveled to after 10 month in Zanzibar was Canada and I remember freezing my toes of in my sandals in Toronto in May. The training was great and we stayed in contact since then.
Now I am proud to invite you on a nice conversation with Chris with whom I talked about personal experience and lessons on the way to partnering with Mike on the Mike Mandel Hypnosis Academy.

Nooo. Of course not. Django our “African Coconut Retriever” 😉 who was with us for our year in Zanzibar will stay in our memory and will/can never be replaced. But as life goes, you move on.
And other than stuff your collection of memories will never be full. You don’t have to get rid of one memory to add another. Maybe that is what life is all about. Making as many experiences as possible and collecting memories to create a meaningful life. Leaving the past and working on the future by living here and now.
So we decided to get another four leged companion for our adventures and decided on a kind of dog we want to have. Since we didn’t want a dog to be bretd for us we hoped to find one that resonates with us that is already grown and need a new home.
I went to the online and the first side that popped up was a breeder in Switzerland who just got a 2 year old dog back that couldn’t stay with the current family and needed a new home. A beautiful 2 year old Australian Kelpie with a very special expression in his face called: JANGO.
So be it we thought and now Jango is with us and will be our “adventure dog”.
Let’s see how he does on the boat…
