F is for FREEDOM

Many people may have vivid feelings of freedom as a child, me? Not so much. I remember playing and having fun as a young child, but I was also racked with this feeling of physical restriction, like I was held back by something. I used to walk with a bent back, never held my head high because of life experiences early on and being picked on for being tall. Freedom…

The Vulnerability Series : Part 1 – Fear

It’s hard to be seen. Really hard when you have spent a lifetime hiding your light under the proverbial bushel. Because often when we want people to see us we remove the invisibility cloak, but we want people to see only our good qualities, our positive side. In a way when we remained in the shadows people never got to see our light or our dark, they never got to…

Leaving Your Comfort Zone

  Over 4 years ago I left my job because I knew that working in retail was no longer for me and I wanted to ‘find myself’ as clichéd as this sounds. With the help of my best friend I learned to live on a small budget and go without the luxuries many people may enjoy in this world. It was a big risk to take, but it was a…

Desire And Scratching An Itch

We all know what it’s like to have an itch that we really want to scratch. Maybe you’re washing the dishes wearing rubber gloves, and suddenly the end of your nose begins to itch (this often happens to me), or you’re meditating and wanting so badly to scratch your head and find relief – for now. But inevitably that itch returns, perhaps some place else, but it’s still an itch you…

When Everyone Shines But You – By Kelly Martin

So today is the dawn of new era for me. The most fabulous beginning. Something in the making for a very long time, trickling away inside as I have been writing this blog since 2007. My first book is being officially launched today! When Everyone Shines But You – Saying Goodbye To ‘I’m Not Good Enough’ To say this is beyond exciting is too tame a sentence for me. I…

The Law Of Changing Conditions

Everything changes, but beneath all of that change is an awareness which never changes. I have been consciously a spiritual ‘seeker’ for over 14 years now and I have begun to reach the point of no more seeking. The ego, the mind, is in a state of flux about this admittedly, but I am trusting that asking those big life questions is going to throw a spanner in the works…

Flowing With Change – Dropping Attachment To Outcomes

  Nature Flows With The Changes And Experiences Life Gracefully – We Can Do The Same One thing I have discovered over the past few years is the importance of being flexible. Not only with the day-to-day changes that can take place, but life goals, dreams and our desires in life. I sometimes feel that life gives you unfulfilled desires to encourage you to learn to bend more, to be…

Being Human Part 4 : Being Authentic – Is It Truly Possible?

Is It Possible To Show Our True Colours At All Times? This topic came up recently between my friend and me and it made me think. What is authenticity and can we always be truly authentic? I think I mentioned in another blog post recently how some of my TV role models are the characters Phoebe from ‘Friends’ and Miranda from UK TV sitcom ‘Miranda’, both honest, authentic, always real,…

Mother Love & Bonding – Did Your Birth Give You Issues?

  Mother love & How Early Birth Experiences Can Cause Anxiety & Other Esteem Issues in Later Life   When we think of mother love we often think of our mothers who gave birth to us. This relationship may be incredibly loving, volatile or strange, depending on the circumstances we were birthed into. I recently read an article about how children remember the birthing experience. A 3-year-old girl described the noises in the…

My Trip To See Mother Amma in London – The Hugging Saint & All That Love

  About 8-9 years ago I had my first experience of meeting Mother Amma, otherwise known as the ‘hugging saint’. And tonight I had my second experience at a different venue – Alexandra Palace. The way I see Mother Amma is as a human being who fully embodies the mother energy sorely needed on this planet today. She embodies the divine feminine and not just on the surface. She fully…
