'Blogging from A to Z Challenge' It sounds fun and a way to really ponder a specific topic. So I will be posting a new post every day for the month of April (with Sundays off).
These may be short, long posts or anything that feels appropriate. I have chosen a theme on the topic of feelings, how we express ourselves, what we feel, how to move through and embrace feelings or stories or poetry or imagery to express feelings.
As I am a very feeling person, my emotional range is quite strong it felt a great way to delve a little deeper and go on a journey through my emotional landscape.
Are there any feelings you would like me to approach or write about? Any feelings you find challenging that I could explore in April?
I look forward to hearing back from you.
HAPPY SPRING (Autumn if you are in the Southern hemisphere and happy whatever weather you are enjoying if you don't have seasons changing)
When Everyone Shines But You by Kelly Martin

Love cannot be grasped with the hands or held onto.
Love cannot be contained in one vehicle for its expression.
Love is not acts done, given or received.
Love knows no limits.
But are there different frequencies of love? Like the air that we breathe can be cool or warm, the wispiness of the wind blowing a breeze or a hurricane can evoke feelings of soothing calm or rapturous delight in the extensive emotion of dramatic play in life's journey.

As many of you who follow my blog will know from my posts, I have experienced skin issues in my life so far including acne and rosacea. Having sensitive skin sucks big time and finding the right products to match such sensitive skin can be a challenge. My own rosacea has been soothed dramatically and calmed down a lot since using Rio Rosa Mosqueta Rosehip Seed Oil and I do find that out of many products, massaging this oil into the rosacea areas (when no acne is present), has significantly reduced the redness, and while I may still have physical responses when drinking alcohol or when I am in the sun, it is nowhere near as bad as it used to be.
For this reason I thought I would check out some of the other products from Rio Rosa Mosqueta and I was not disappointed. Even though I have tried their Anti-Ageing Day & Night Cream they contacted me to try out some other products that also included the rosehip seed oil.

While exploring the whole .... Continued on from Vulnerability Series Part 1 : Fear
Belonging - feeling unsafe to belong.
Better to not risk belonging because belonging equals the potential for being hurt and rejected. So to not allow myself to belong in any group, tribe or circle means no more rejection or hurt.
And in doing so, cutting off my connection to the abundance and support that the whole can give to me.
In essence I have already been rejected by my pushing away any chance of belonging to a tribe. So why not allow myself to feel safe to belong, and so in this belonging feel the support of the whole.
I am risking my wholeness by pushing people away. So better to embrace belonging and risk rejection, for rejection is merely taking place inside my own self anyway.
~Kelly Martin's inner dialogue
This past few weeks haven't been easy for me I have been moving away from a life of practically full-on solitude for the past 4 years + to coming back into the circle of humanity. I started doing this by joining a local laughter yoga class, but while it was good, it was a short class that alllowed no getting to know the other people. People would drop in occasionally, sometimes not coming back; we would do the laughter yoga and that was it, everyone left and returned to their respective homes.

Title: The Art of the Intuitive Healer
Genuine real life case studies of intuitive healing that will captivate your heart.
Author: Wayne Lee
Price: £6.95 at time of posting ( Purchase HERE)
USA : $9.04 at time of posting (Purchase HERE)
Genre: Mind, Body, Spirit
Healing has such far-reaching effects that as channels for healing we can sometimes think that it's a simple process of laying our hands on someone and that's it. Sometimes, as channels for healing, we are taught different techniques to do this, using symbols and ways of laying on of the hands, that it can be easy to forget to listen to our intuitive guidance.
Wayne Lee's book shows those of us in the healing fields that it is so much more than a simple laying on of hands. Lee, a psychic surgeon, intuitive healer, trance healer, spirit surgeon and Reiki Master, brings home to us the reality and clarity needed to be an intuitive healer, in how everything taking place can give the practitioner or channel information on what is taking place with the client.

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 see our strengths or our weaknesses. Hiding in the shadows is both a comfort and a discomfort zone, filled with duality.
When I wrote my book 'When Everyone Shines But You', it was inspired by the small gentle voice inside, the voice we all have access to - the wise self. I began to see that the world deserved to see all of me, not just the bright aspects or the creative beauty. But alas, in the world of publishing, marketing and showing myself to the world, some fear arose and then an even greater load of fear emerged, until I was so immersed in fear that I forgot who I was any more. I was very much ready to crawl back into the shadows and hide again.
When we hide, we may feel safe. To be seen means that we also risk sharing our vulnerability. Tweet That

I have a request for all of my readers at Kelly Martin Speaks that will help with my next book. A bit of research that will bring forth answers.
If you had a question (or questions) to ask God/The Universe/ Spirit what would you like to ask?
If you don't believe in God or spirit what questions would you like answered anyway, perhaps if you had access to a wise part of yourself that knows all the answers what would you like to know?
The questions can be vast, short, long and varied.
Subjects can be on anything. Life, humanity, personal relationships, love, sexuality, parenting, money, the environment, spiritual and so much more. If you have challenging questions these are all welcome.
Thanks in advance for your help with my research.
Blessings and love to you

Welcome to 2015.
I'm sitting in my pyjamas in awe and surprise that 2015 is here. It feels like it simply snuck up on me and jumped out from behind a wall shouting 'SURPRISE!'
2015.. What an alien concept, doesn't it feel quite sci-fi to you? Shouldn't we be riding around on hover-crafts by now or living on space-ships? Grin. I know my imagination is quite fantastical lol!
Well.. so it's 2015, should I 'Ra ra ra' my way into this new beginning? Or thrash pans together, wear pink or yellow underwear to see in the new year? (yes people actually do this in a different countries - see here) or simply acknowledge each year is filled with change, uncertainty and the grand unknown.
