Patterns of a Self-help Junkie!

I used to be a Self-Help Junkie or Personal Development Junkie.

I noticed a pattern with myself though. I never finished what I started.

I tried too many things all at the same time.

I had fingers in too many pots.

There was such a fear of missing out on information, knowledge and wisdom, I buzzed like a bee from flower to flower getting nectar from each flower.

But I never digested the nectar, it stayed in the stomach never became honey.

The sticky mess that honey is….

Contentment, bliss and joy is like honey, sweet and sticky.

With Self-help you think if you do this or that or read this or read that or follow that person you will taste the honey.

The honey my love is inside of you.

You gotta stick with the mess inside of you.

Process it inside of you.

The nectar isn’t in the books or the strategies or tips.

They are just tools.

The secret is within the process.

You got to trust the process.

You got to be patient with the process.

As a recovering Self-help Junkie I know that is the hardest part.


Being patient.


I know am committed to finishing what I started.

If anything in this blog has really resonated with you and you would like to discuss the subject further with Taniya privately then use this link.



Taniya Hussain qualified as a Social Worker in 1991 from Coventry University in England. She has been working on the front lines, consistently holding space for individuals and families for three decades especially, children and young people on the margins of society. Taniya studied Psycho-dynamic counselling from 1991 to 1993 at Goldsmiths College in London. Taniya met Sheikha Halima Krausen in 1992 and has been studying Islam with her ever since especially Mystical Islam, Tassawuf (Sufism) and walks on the Chisti path. Taniya really started using the power of Jungian Pyschology and Mystical Islam when she started her Online Coaching and Consultancy Business in 2018 and discovered she was a powerful healer. When she discovered Shadow Alchemy in 2019, she started developing this modality into Muslim Alchemy in 2020. She now brands herself as the Muslim Alchemist because she is constantly integrating her knowledge of the Quran and Bible with her vast Social Work experience and her extensive ability of applying Psycho-dynamic, therapeutic techniques to organisational settings, team dynamics and when working with individuals and groups. This has both Online and Offline. Taniya uses skillfully her understanding of the Shadow, that Jung constantly talked about and her Mystical Training plus her experience in inter-faith dialogue since 2003, to help individuals and groups become conscious of what they previously were unconscious of leading to rapid success in their Business, Health and Relationships. Taniya has a great skill in being able to see the blind spots in others and in untanging energetic knots (a term she uses for Shadow) to promote healing from mental and physical disease. She uses her vast expertise and skills to help her Online Clients to get rid of decades of anxiety causing insomnia, depression and suicidal thoughts and marital problems. Clients usually are healed in a short amount of time never needing to invest in Therapy again. She really is the Muslim Alchemist as she turns the shitty experience of clients into golden experiences where they manifest upgraded, wealth, health and relationships all at the same time. Taniya got married in 1995 and has three sons born in 1996, 2001 and 2003 and lives in Surrey, England and when she is not developing Muslim Alchemy, she loves to spend time with her family and write fiction stories, songs and poems. She speaks fluent English and Urdu and basic German and French and is learning Arabic and Hebrew.
