Mauritian sunshine streamed in through the kitchen windows, warming my body. Yet I still felt cold. I sat at the wooden table in the vast kitchen that was way too big for me, yet too small to house the blanket of darkness that enveloped me, and I looked down into my...read more
The Awakening Shock My Sheikh (spiritual master and my spiritual guide) often speaks of the ‘awakening shock’. A moment in time or a series of separate yet interlinked occasions where a human being’s entire world, or how they knew it to be, is rocked so hard that...read more
Gods whispers reached me on the wind. “Do you trust me?” I heard His voice loud and clear; it rang through my racing heart, coursed it’s way through my veins, I felt it run up and down the steps of my spine and somehow, I knew that it was ringing out from...read more
It’s not the first time in my life I’ve been called a wuss. There was the time when my circle of friends at the time, over ten years ago now, poked fun at the fact that I wasn’t one to raise my fists and get in a fight when it came to resolving conflicts. And...read more
I smiled at you. You turned your head and looked away. My three-year-old daughter pointed to your probably-three-year-old son, and squealed excitedly, “Look, Mama, look! He got teddy bear! He got teddy bear, like me!” You glanced at us, looked extremely awkward,...read more
I’m in a weird place right now, but that’s to be expected I guess. Myself and the other three members of my little family are still battling the flu (this whole Christmas period has been a huge blur, including my birthday 😣); we’re currently feeling the after...read more
In just over 24 hours, I’ll be turning 31. And I’m sitting here alone, with a Bollywood movie on in the background, Christmas tree lights twinkling away in the corner, full of a newly acquired cold, while my two children and husband sleep in their beds.While...read more
Some days I feel like I’m in a dream, watching myself going through the motions of each day, knowing that even though I am in this world, I am not of it; I’m just passing through and soon enough, I will be returning elsewhere. Other days, I feel ensnared by the...read more
It’s been a really heavy few days. Which is the greatest paradox, because the last week has really been incredible for me career and work-wise. Yet, I don’t know whether it’s the crazy shit that’s going on with the planets at the moment, Mercury still...read more
It was the summer of 2010, and Ramadan had just arrived. After the shenanigans of my brother’s wedding and everything that comes with that just a couple of weeks prior to the holy month, we now had a new sister-in-law in the house and that first suhoor...read more
“Morning! How are you?” I asked, my voice groggy with sleep and pain. “Urm, I’m good, just so saddened and shocked to hear the news from New Zealand, this morning…” “I haven’t seen the news yet,” I cut in, trying to speak quickly through the pain eating...read more
Let's continue... If you haven't read Part One of this story yet, you can do so here. The Holiday In early May 2011, a few weeks before my Uncle passed on, my old best friend and I had booked our first holiday away together, flying early June. To say...read more
They don’t write songs about this kind of stuff – I don’t think they really write much about this kind of stuff, to be honest. But it happens; and the pain that is left behind is so open, so exposing, so raw and so real that you’d think people...read more
Hi, I’m Sabah – a writer, artist and journalist, who believes deeply in the saying
“be the change you wish to see in the world”.
This blog is my personal little corner of the Internet in which I share my journey of self-discovery, spirituality, personal development, self-growth and consciousness through exploring the universe that lies both outside and within us all.
I write about my own life and experiences, social problems and global issues as well as things that make life more beautiful for me – such as art, music and so much more.
So basically, this is me and my varied blog – striving every single day to become the change that I wish to see to help make our world a brighter, happier and safer place for us all. Join me?
