A in the M.A.G.I.C.A.L method

Did you watch the Documentary on Abba?

I also watched the Documentary on Tina Turner this weekend in May and yes I did watch the Coronation of King Charles III on 6th May 2023

This is NOT because I am a Royalist far from it I am a Republican.

However I LOVE history and I wanted to witness history.

I watched it from the comfort of my own home because I was in the last stages of a cold and I was determined to rest.

After making breakfast which took a few hours, (I am not good at judging how long cooking will take but yesterday I did two hours and I enjoyed cooking it has a beginning, middle and end unlike running an online business and social work which doesn’t) I sat down to watch it from 11am until 3am.

I actually had my phone switched off all Friday night on 5th May and until Saturday afternoon of the 6th May

Talk about Digital Detoxification I was ALL most of 6th May

This is A in the M.A.G.I.C.A.L method which I practiced

I tend to practice this on a Saturday by just not going on Social media

Not going on Facebook

But on 6th May 2023 after the Pandemic after a very long time I switched off my phone from 1am to 3pm

Abstaining from Digital devices and that’s what I did well I did from the SMART phone during these hours

I know I watched TV a Digital device from 1055 to 3pm on 6th May but I tell you not having any access to any Digital devices during my waking hours on 6th May morning

From 745am to 1045am on 6th May whilst cooking I surrounded myself with SILENCE

The rest of my family was sleeping

And I was in the Kitchen cooking

I had

No phone

No music playing in the background

No podcast in the background


Just silence and well the noise of my thoughts

I read chapter in a book and thought about that

It really affected me

The chapter was about Avveros and his last days better known in the Muslim world as Ibn Rushd

How he died in isolation in Marrakesh

Not in Cordoba

And then I returned to check WhatsApp messages at 3pm on 6th May incase family had called or wanting to call.

Abstaining from Digital devices on this day from 745am to 1055 am was SO nourishing SO grounding

It relaxed me SO much

It really gave me the ENERGY to declutter something I had been resisting for SO long

It gave me the ENERGY and FOCUS to declutter my phone and my bedroom

The PEACE I felt on 6th May


The BALANCE I felt


Have you ever abstained from ALL Digital devices?

Or just your SMART phone for more than 3 hours?

Have you tried to switch off your SMART phone for 24 hours?

Do you do that weekly?

Have one day in the week where you ABSTAIN?

Try it!

And tell me after 6 weeks when you have abstained every week for weeks, do you feel MORE at peace?

Do you feel more BALANCED?

Try this experiment and then report back to me.

I would really LOVE to know.



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.
