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.


The Art of Sabr: A Practice That Goes Beyond Patience

There’s a word we use in Urdu and Punjabi; a word that I heard over and over again while growing up. “Sabr,” my mother would impatiently say standing over the stove, as I tugged at her sleeve because my tummy was rumbling. “Sabr”, my grandmother would smile knowingly...

6 Life-Changing Lessons That My Spiritual Master Left Me

6 Ways to Tame the Voices in Our Heads

    “You can do this. This is the year. This is your time.” “Oh, but you say that every year. You don’t have it in you. You can never complete anything. You think you can do this? No way. Not a chance in hell.” “Oh come on, don’t listen to her. You know that’s not the...

7 Real Reflections on the First 3 Weeks Post-Partum

    Last night, I ended up in the bathroom sobbing uncontrollably on the toilet for five minutes. The baby wouldn’t settle, I felt overwhelmingly exhausted and the pain from the haemorrhoids that had been torturing me for the past week was pretty much unbearable. Five...

The 7 Universal Laws of the Universe and How to Use Them to Create a Better Life

    Life isn’t just happening. The way life is happening for us is because of us.That can be a hard pill to swallow for those who believe they always draw the short straw; that the world is against them and that life is just so damn hard.But it doesn’t have to be that...

I Write These 3 Things Everyday For A Happier Life

  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...

COVID 19: Humanity’s Awakening Shock?

    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...

I’m a Wuss – and I’m Grateful for it

    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...

Living in a Fake Reality

    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...

But Do I Really Love Myself?

    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...

What Even is Success?

    Turning 30 & A Midi-Life Crisis So it’s official - I am now in the dirty thirties! I’m not gonna lie to you, I did kind of make the build up to the big day slightly more dramatic in my head than turning 30 actually was, but since turning 30 is the...

Gut Punches & Keeping Faith

I read the words in the business email I’d received earlier that morning, and although I knew it was coming, it still felt like someone had taken a giant, iron fist and punched me right in the gut. This has happened before and I’ve definitely been there...

In the In-Between

Yeah, so, I haven’t posted anything on the blog for a long, long while. If I were to use excuses, I’d say that it’s because of this trip home to England and not having the time or space to put new posts together regularly. And although that is partially...

Put It Into Words.

I was born to write. Ever since I was a little girl, with a big gap-toothed smile and crazy, curly hair, walking around like a miniature female version of my dad, words have always been my friends. Books became my whole world, losing myself in them as I escaped the...

Not Just the ‘Mehndi-Waali’

There is a problem in South Asian communities – even among South Asians born and brought up in western 21st century Britain. That problem is one of superiority and one that as a professional henna artist I have experienced first hand one too many times.   Back in...
