My Heart Is With Thailand

I had a gut feeling, a hunch... something big was going to happen in my life on June 20th.

Why I Gave Up Men For A Year.

by Ashleigh James / Sep 06, 2015 / Comments

I'm not interested in a connection for the sake of it. But eventually, I'd like a partnership. Someone who's core values run along side mine so we can co-create something beautiful together.

My Spiritual Awakening

by Ashleigh James / Aug 03, 2015 / Comments

I tried to take it all in my stride but I was panicking inside. "Why was this happening to me?" "Am I crazy?" "I just want to be 'normal'."

Following the Yellow Brick Road

by Ashleigh James / Jun 12, 2015 / Comments

I felt as though I was just going through the motions. Why was there still a hole in my life? I figured that the answer I was looking for came down to this; "Who was I and what did I truly want in life?"

Dealing With Depression

by Ashleigh James / May 22, 2015 / Comments

Recently I've not felt myself. Some days I've struggled to get out of bed and others I've felt so alive that my body vibrates with energy. Up and down on an emotional roller coaster that I can't seem to get off... I've been depressed.

My Mum... My Sunshine.

by Ashleigh James / May 06, 2015 / Comments

From sitting in the bath and having her explain my questions around sex at a young age, to telling me about hers and my Dad's divorce. From encouraging me to feel comfortable in my own skin, to coming to the rescue when I was in trouble. She was always there when I needed her.

How Appearance Can Affect Your Self Worth

by Ashleigh James / Apr 23, 2015 / Comments

I feel like as a woman, we rely so much on our looks that we don't realize it's our smarts and independence that are actually more attractive. And I believe that is due to a mixture between a socially created stereotype and from having little self worth.

My low self esteem comes from being an ugly duckling as a child. I wanted so badly to be one of the popular girls at first school but I didn't seem to fit in (sucked at gymnastics) and was sometimes mistaken for a boy.

Expressing Your Emotions

by Ashleigh James / Mar 16, 2015 / Comments

As I write this I am at a challenging point in my life. I'm finally learning about my true self, having more self-belief and finding my voice, however it does not come easy. For this you have to pay a price and personal development is hard.

Table For One Please

For the first time in 27 years I can honestly say that I enjoy my own company. Even though I've always been an independent and fairly confident young woman, I can admit to being a serial monogamist.

Ashleigh has a strong background in business development, management and education in the Health, Wellness and Fitness industry. She has been fortunate to work in the UK, Bermuda and Canada. These fantastic opportunities helped develop who she is but lead her wanting more from life.

After what she considers to be a spiritual awakening, she decided to work on herself from within by identifying insecurities and issues, particulary around self-worth that would hold her back. She believes that going through this process raises her consciousness as she sheds old belief systems, and gains spiritual gifts as a result.
Ashleigh feels that her experience is part of the global evolution of human consciousness (planetary shift). She wishes to support and empower others who are also taking this next step by continuing to work on herself and stand in her power.

She'd like to connect with those who are serious about creating a new system and reality based on unconditional love, and to awaken more people to this possibility.
She believes that we all have the personal power and responsibility to bring about this change.

Ashleigh is also the Owner/Editor in Chief of GEM Magazine - Gender Equality Movement.
