Here you will find posts about my life and personal experiences across the spectrum, with a large focus on my spirituality and my journey to consciousness and inner peace.


Here, I write on issues that affect us around the world focussing on solutions and raising global consciousness. I also explore social and cultural issues of interest to me, which I believe need to be spoken about openly in order for change to come. 


I believe life is an ever-changing journey of growth and self-betterment. Here you will find posts and reviews on things I love or have really enjoyed, posts on and interviews with people that inspire me to become better, as well as things I have come across that have opened my eyes even further or encouraged me to ask questions.


As well as being a passionate writer and journalist, I am also a passionate artist. It is one of the places where I feel the most peace. Expect to find posts here on the stories behind my own artistic creations as well as reviews on the products I use to create my work.


Writing has always been a major release for me. Poetry, prose, short stories and more – here you will find words that I feel flow through me from somewhere beyond me.


Stephon Clark: When Will Black Lives Matter?

  How many times do we have to scream that black lives matter before the world begins to listen? It is way too often that I see the news of another black man having been shot dead at the hands of white police officers in America and quite frankly, I am sick of it....

My Hypnobirthing Experience

I’ve been planning to write about my hypnobirthing experience for a while now (my daughter is now 15 months old after all!) but it just hasn’t happened – sorry about that! A couple of weeks ago, I read the Unmumsy Mum’s account of her hypnobirthing experience with...

Anita Moorjani’s Dying to be Me – My Thoughts

It was around March or April time last year (2017) when I was home alone with the baby who was sleeping soundly in her baby rocking chair, when while flicking through YouTube a suggested TED Talk popped up titled ‘Dying to be me!’. Immediately it caught my attention...

The Deep and Random Struggles of Motherhood

Coming from a background of working in music and always being around it or being immersed in it, just the other day - in a rare 30 minutes I got to myself with my earphones in with music on whilst beginning a new mandala drawing - I was reminded just how much I bloody...

Return to Love.

So I'm standing here staring at this waterfall. The water gushes down, a cloud-like continuous foam. It is roaring; it's thirst has been quenched from the recent rain fall and it wants the world to know. It's sounds mixed with the wind rustling...

10 Incredible Women I’m Celebrating this International Women’s Day

  I love women. Maybe not in the same way as a red-blooded twenty-two year old male, but I really do. Growing up I guess I didn’t really fully appreciate being a girl. After all, I was born a Pakistani, Muslim female in twentieth century Britain into a working class...

Instant Gratification or Long Term Success?

We live in a world where pretty much anything is available now - and so, we want it now. This goes from greasy fast food through to Instagram likes, from same-day delivery packages through to on-demand movies and music. We allow speed and convenience to become a major...

Exploring Body Shaming in South Asian Communities

It was around mid-2015. I was settled happily and comfily in my repeat clients house, as I applied henna to her hands in preparation for her upcoming wedding. We talked and laughed; her mother flitting in and out of the room, admiring my handiwork and telling me how...

Rosa Parks: Sitting Down to Make a Stand

  Moving away from social-media-displays-of-affection and pink and red love hearts every which way you look, February is also Black History Month: 28 days devoted to remembering and celebrating the struggles and achievements of black people throughout history, in...

A Whatsapp Convo with… Someone who has had an Out-of-Body Experience

I’ve read and come across information online about out of body experiences or OBEs (even from a really young age when I used to avidly buy SpineChiller magazine every week!) but never have I known or spoken to someone that has actually had one. I don’t believe in...



We know how powerful hashtags can be in this day and age. Hashtags can inspire and they can create movements. Hashtags can begin conversations and instigate change. And some hashtags can even break us, make us, unite us and then do all of the above and more. Today I...

Grace Victory: No Filter – My Thoughts

I’m not gonna lie. Now living in Mauritius, one of the things I miss most about England is Amazon Prime and their next day delivery service. That being said, I guess I have to be grateful that I was still able to get a copy of Grace Victory’s No Filter from the UK out to this tiny speck of an island in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

Accepting the Death of my Father

The thought of losing someone you love is probably one of the scariest things you can imagine. It’s the connotations that surround the taboo subject of death I suppose; you just don’t know what it is, what has happened to them and how you are going to survive without them in your life. You don’t know… until it happens to you.

The Plight of the Rohingya

Over 5 years ago I wrote an article which was circulated widely on social media called “The Invisible Holocaust of 2012”(which has since disappeared :/), conveying the struggles of the Rohingya Muslim community in Burma (also known as Myanmar).

Can You Be Gay and Muslim?

This is a topic that I think about often, yet avoid writing about just because I’ve never really known how to articulate my views on this properly. Even now, I’ll be honest, I am still confused about some of the issues that go hand-in-hand with this wider, highly debated subject matter…

Hi, I’m Sabah – a 29-year-old British Asian writer, artist and journalist, who believes deeply in the saying

“be the change you wish to see in the world”.

This conscious blog is my personal little corner of the Internet in which I share my journey of self-discovery, spirituality and consciousness through exploring the universe that lies both outside and within us all.

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?
