Are We Made To Give Unconditionally?

    Sometimes I am hesitant to use the word God in blog posts, as everyone comes from different backgrounds, some are religious, some are not, so when I say God I mean life. In a bookshop last week I read a poem on ‘giving’ by Kahlil Gibran and it struck me how conditional I still am in my giving. Kahlil Gibran – On Giving You give but little when…

Ho’oponopono – When The Whole World Is Inside You – A Beginners Experience

  Ho’oponopono what? Yes, it is a long word, a word I often have to think about when I try to spell it, but a word that describes an ancient Hawaiian healing process. As many of my readers will know I have  been experimenting with many different spiritual techniques and healing practices over the past 10 years and more. Ranging from Shamanism, NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), Law of Attraction –…

Smile And The World Smiles With You

 Walking into my local Marks and Spencer’s today, I crossed paths with a lady shopping. I smiled warmly at her and she responded with a grimace. My first initial reaction was to judge her, calling her names like ‘miserable grumpy sod‘, and more inside my head. This was just an old memory being replayed, and within a few minutes I stopped myself in my tracks. It was not her job to…

Balanced Power – International Women’s Day

It seems a really important time for women in the world. Since last year, women have begun rising up for women’s rights more than ever. Some men have been supporting women in their challenge of abuse, violence and rape, and the general way in which women have been used and abused for centuries. Some very patriarchal cultures, for example India, have a very controlling way of viewing women; very behind…

CHANGE – And Why It Seems All Hell Is Breaking Loose!

So, it’s the New Year. You have things you want to change, new experiences you want to have, old experiences you want to let go of. They may be health-related, relationship changes, financial changes, career changes – any kind of change. New Year’s Eve came. You felt excited, invigorated, full of potential; you smelled the scent of new in the air. Full of vigour, you marched forward into 2013. Expecting…

2012 and into 2013 – A New Cycle

Wow, as I sit here I contemplate what to say. It has been an interesting year, and one where I had to take a break from ‘Kelly Martin Speaks’. Beliefs, thoughts, come and go. We often do not know what will stay or what will cement itself in our consciousness. Some ideas we hold onto, some ideas we let go of. Me, I have let go of a lot, and…

Affluenza – Are You Addicted To Affluence?

Prior to entering competitions and winning I was quite content and able to let my life unfold and be at peace with my simple life. Once I started winning I was aware of this addiction to the buzz of the material world and I am now swinging back to the centre on this topic. I look around and instead of the increase in technology, the increase in health-care, the increase…

Our Human Need To Help

Where does our need to help come from as humans? Do we help when we see someone hurting or in trouble? What is help?   When does help become unwanted or intrusive?   Sometimes my own help comes from a heart-centred place, a place where I feel someone is hurting and calling out for help on some level. Often though I tried to help when the person had not asked for help. I…

Alone – Aloneness – Lonely – Seeking One’s Own Light

I wanted to write a short update for my blog. So how am I doing right now? Well – letting it all unfold.  It is all I can do right now. It’s funny because all the things I used to do, all the behaviour or the choices I made, were choices made to make me feel better via feedback from the outside world. And as I allowed my life to unfold…

On Being Raw, Authentic, Controversial And Challenging

After grappling with something this week I recognised that it is time to be proud of my uniqueness. I browse around countless other sites on-line, blogs, websites, You Tube channels, Facebook pages etc etc.. and I sit and wonder: ‘Why do they have so many followers? What do they do that I do not?’ And so it began, a thought process. Mike helped me understand some of it this morning. He said when…
