Hey, I’m Kieran, an artist, writer, and qualified coach helping people navigate this beautiful sh*tstorm we call life with a smile. This blog: The Captain’s Log is all about the journey of awakening to our true nature and purpose so we can live in alignment with our unique creative spirit. It’s also a journal I created.

    There are parts inside us that don’t want to be more present. Namely, the monkey in our heads, the “monkey mind”. He just wants to think all day, so naturally, being fully present feels like death to him. Being present has been a big big challenge for me. I’m much better than I was. I …

  • Pick a side
    Pick a side. Pick a country. Pick a team. Pick a politician.Pick anything to “other” yourself from another. Pick anything to split the outside world in two so you don’t have to look at the fragmented parts within yourself. Take a look; it’s working well… the world is cracking up, but sadly not in laughter. …

  • Sacred Spaces and Spiritual Practices
    I don’t usually do posts like this but I am today… It is mainly a statement to myself. Specifically, the part that lived in fear, afraid to be judged, rejected or labelled “weird”. I’m finally beginning to outgrow that now, so it all sounds a bit ridiculous… if this is “weird”, I’m more than happy …

    It’s one thing I’ve not been doing much of lately. I guess that’s why it was such an important reminder for me.  “Find the One and rest in it” was the answer to my question about how to slow down… find more peace, contentment, and gratitude for the way things are. Some respite from a …

  • Being Vs Doing – What’s The Big Deal?
    Maybe I’m beating a dead horse here. Being too obtuse. Too vague. Contradictory even. Sure, it’s paradoxical and it sure as shit ain’t logical. This is why we have such a difficult time really understanding the draw of mindfulness-based practices that propound the importance of BEING over DOING. Make no mistake about it, these two …

  • ‘Breaking News: There Is Nothing To Fear’
    This work of art was inspired by a recent dream I had & @lovenotfearmankind with their #lovenotfear campaign for mental health awareness.

  • Words Are Vibrations: Enter The Mantra
    Words are vibrations and we’re all a bunch of atoms floating around in bags of skin. I’m no expert but apparently, it’s science. I do know words can have a huge impact on how we feel. Here, I’m referring more to sound in general than I am to everyday language. The effect of the latter …

These stories or habitual thought patterns result in how we feel. These feelings result in more …
