Would You Take a Moment and Ponder?

What many people don’t know about me, is that, in spite of my optimistic outlook, I probably cry way more than they do… My heart is of course bleeding for all the hurt caused by this pandemic. But I have been crying way before this crisis.

People were dying every day before the Corona Virus: from hunger, cold, giving birth, all kinds of diseases.

I’ve been crying about the cruel unfairness of the world: extreme poverty, homelessness, wars, and people escaping from their homeland to save their lives and find themselves in some refugee camps lacking the basics of human dignity…

I need to admit I am truly enthusiastic about this COVID-19. Nobody deserves death or to suffer this way—the epigenetics science is explaining the root cause of the death by the way; which is not the virus (a story for another time) — but a global awakening comes at a price, unfortunately. Yes, it is way harsher than what we could ever have imagined, but the world is extremely imbalanced as well. It is simply correlated.

I keep faith we will all start pondering, reviewing our distorted beings making our lives and the world that imbalanced in the first place; the level of responsibility being obviously correlated to the quality of our program. The universe is sending a coded message. I hope everybody will open their heart and listen to it… Hoping is all that I can control anyway.

I am deeply passionate about everything life has to offer. Writing has been my very favorite means to educate my audience, captivate their attention, talk to their emotions, and make them relate and take action. I have been honored by working as a columnist for BIZCATALYST 360°, an Award-Winning life, culture, and biz new media digest, serving as the global hub for enhanced performance and well-being, during 2020. Also, I am a contributing author in Mayhem to Miracles: True Stories of Courage, Triumph, and Peace. I am so in love with writing that I have a peaceful smile drawn on my face whenever I start visualizing the books I will be writing for whoever will be tempted to discover an inclusive philosophy breaking with all the stigmas! I was born in Tunisia, a small country in North Africa. I did pretty much everything earlier than the average: walking, talking, singing, dancing. Promoted throughout my entire education, I was also the leader of every end-of-year party. At some point, after working several years for multinational companies as an engineer, team leader, project coordinator, and product owner while always being a top performer, I figured out I was feeling miserable despite the 'perfect external image'. That marked the starting point of an existential crisis followed by an episode that triggered my re-birth and the beginning of the most rewarding adventure of my whole existence: re-writing my subconscious program and reconnecting with my true self. I was saved at the last moment through an out-of-body experience making me see all the lies, realize this gigantic Universe was not revolving around me. Most importantly, I was able to visualize I was here to leave a legacy like all of you, no matter how big or small! The butterfly took time to emerge though. Today, I identify myself as a Universal Citizen. Like-minded and light-hearted people are what I call home. I am deeply passionate about everything life has to offer, and was granted the edutainer qualifier: a combination between education and entertainment! I educate on the importance of healing unsuspected traumas, seeing our limiting beliefs and biases with honest lenses, finding one's purpose and a principled mission that goes beyond the self, and unleashing the hidden potential so that to leave our legacy for the generations unborn. I have been using a panoply of means that could vary from explicit ones such as mentorship, speaking, and writing, a skill that emerged naturally during my self-actualization process to implicit mediums like storytelling, how I daily show up in the world and model servant leadership! Writing is my very favorite and most preferred tool deployed for my mission. The topics I explore are in the nexus of stoic philosophy, psychology, neuroplasticity, epigenetics, and pretty much any topic involving human behavior. Common denominator? The quality of the subconscious program. You may have a look at some of my works published on my website; Set Yourself Free.

  1. I love your post Myriam. Dr. King said “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” Change takes a long time, but it does happen. Good will always prevail in the end. While it doesn’t appear that way from some social media posts and political talk radio, there is more that unites us then divides us. It takes one moment in time by one person at a time to perform a selfless act of kindness to change the world.

    • And thanks for triggering it dear Frank! We are indeed way more connected than we could imagine!

      The only thing which separates us is the sick ego, the unfriendly subconscious program which has been written by someone else; in other words, we never chose in the first place!

      “Taking one’s responsibility to change what we were not responsible for creating– our subconscious program– is probably the highest level of bravery and wisdom!”
