Why I No Longer Experience Depression.

There is one tool above all others that has provided me with a sustainable bedrock of support during my darker days. It is something that means I no longer experience suicidal thoughts and even honour that time as equally as I do the joyful days. I recognise that there is gold to be found in the shadows of my self. It is safe to be there. It is a choice I make. I no longer feel lost in that space but empowered. It is only in owning, accepting and loving this part of myself as deeply as I do the 'good part' that I believe I have truly become whole. And of course, happy :) With love, Sian xxx

Founder, Still Space

Hello hello! I'm Sian Clifford. Utterly overwhelmed, delighted and excited to have been shortlisted for the Hay House and Psychologies 'New Wise Voice' competition! If you enjoy my content I would be so super grateful for your votes - just click the 'VOTE UP' button on any (or all if you're feeling particularly generous!) of my posts. You can also follow me to keep up to date with all my latest blogs. I am the founder of Still Space, dedicated to connecting people to their best, most authentic and creative selves through meditation and the art of doing nothing! I am also an actor, writer and producer. I am deeply passionate about finding new ways to be my best self, because I believe if you want to change the world that's where you've got to start! I think humans are amazing, more powerful and kinder than we could ever truly comprehend. I believe in less doing more being, but that's not always an easy balance to find. So I'm here to share my adventures along the way because I believe the most important lessons that we're here to learn, are also what we're here to teach, and the power of storytelling is one of the most incredible tools we have to connect with one another. To discover. To evolve. To heal. If you're reading this I believe you're part of a movement so big, it's going to change the face of humanity. Let's swap some tales. I LOVE pictures too, so Instagram is one of my fave hangouts. You can find me on @stillspacemeditation
