STRONG Unparalleled breakthroughs of an epic scale incoming!

Dear Blog Readers….

Sorry for being an absent parent to this blog for some time now. Life has been a bit crazy.

From experiencing the old black dog of depression for several months which caused an identity crisis to health issues and survival issues related to an upcoming home eviction, you could say that life has given me a whole lot of writing material for my blog. 

But instead of my usual 'go to' self-healing through writing, I chose to self-nurture, connect with nature, friends, receive physical human support and my creativity through writing took a backseat for a while

However, a re-birth is incoming, a huge change and new beginning is on its way and my self-esteem is raising big time after many years of practising mindfulness, using the tools I gathered through writing 'The Shine Series' and more recently through hypnosis from a friend something is shifting in me. So this is just a little introduction to some big writing coming soon and a lot more to talk about.

Thanks for sticking around.

I love and appreciate you all for all your comments, shares and support over the past 9 years. 

I truly can't believe next year is my 10 year blog anniversary. See you all soon, some of my journey may surprise you, but also inspire you if you are going through difficulties at this time in your life.

When Everyone Shines INCLUDING You NEW BOOK by Kelly Martin

Kelly Martin When Everyone Shines Including You Book Shine Series

Hey Everyone, 

I'm sorry for the delay in posting about some big changes in my life lately, but lots has been happening. 

Not only did I reach the youthful age of 40 I also published my second book in 'The Shine Series' When Everyone Shines INCLUDING You. 

This was quite a journey for me, because originally I had never envisioned a second book or even writing a series, but I was inspired and felt the journey had not finished with book 1. Book 2 can also be read as a stand-alone book for anyone who is in a place of being ready to shine for the first time.

The Silent Files - Destruction Of The Old Identity - Part 2

The Silent Files - Destruction of the Identity Part 2

(This post was left in the 'not good enough' pile of drafts in 2011, so much has changed since I posted, a re-birthing did take place and I became an author)

Releasing Your Identity Part 2 

Continued from Part 1 HERE

I know deep down there is gold within me. A divine quality I am yet to face. The worldly distractions need to be removed so I can really face who I am.

As such, the fears, the traumas, anything un-resolved rises to the surface. I notice extreme judgemental-ism and intolerance arising in me. It's funny, as the more aware I become of the bigger picture of life, the more intolerant I become of anyone not 'getting it'. And I must not judge myself about this for very little is written about 'the void' of the spiritual journey. It is part of the crumbling, a part of the ego's last hold.

As the illusions drop from our eyes, at first, frustration, resentment, judgement and intolerance will arise. We are the saint and the sinner all in one body. Positive thinking and positive tools and exercises merely sugar-coat what eventually we all must face - our whole self.

The only way out is through. I have heard this saying a few times lately.

The spiritual journey has many twists and turns and then you come to a place, after much dissolving, after much shedding of what and who we thought we were to something even deeper. The real shedding and crumbling of one's identity.

When life keeps providing us with space, alone time and we have only ourselves for company we have no choice but to go through the experience.

Are You Ready For Love? Self-love and Vulnerability


It's funny, I am not normally bothered about Valentine's Day. I have spent a few years now celebrating 'Quirky Alone Day', a day dedicated to singles who feel empowered being single, but also to couples who want a different way to celebrate this often very commercial time of the year.

Yet as I scrolled Facebook, I saw competitions to enter and the question was often 'What is the best Valentine's present you have ever received?' or 'What is the best Valentine's date you have ever been on?' And something about these questions touched me. 

Yes it may be commercial. Love should be an every day experience, but love has been on my mind lately a lot.

Scared To Have A Smear?

Women Scared To Have Cervical Smear Test

For a few years I resisted having a cervical smear test. I am in my late thirties. I believed my body would tell me if something was wrong. However I was not in touch with this part of me deeply enough to know its needs.

I put off the smear test for years.

And then I became sexually active in early 2015 and when the condom split I had to go for emergency contraception. At the time I chose the copper coil, probably not something I would choose again, because something about it felt all wrong for my body. As part of getting fitted at the sexual health clinic I had lots of tests done for sexually transmitted diseases as well as a pregnancy test and my first smear test in a very long time.

What 2015 Taught Me - The Pain, The Heartbreak, The Joy and the Love

New Years Farewell Swan

So 2015 was a whirlwind of change for me. In 2014 I was more on my lonesome, my life was more living in hermitville, until later in that year. I was in a low point, but had some new achievements, but 2015?

What a ride!
