My name is Martha Trudi Ryan
I am a Conscious Creative from Dublin, Ireland

 

I support the growth of heart-based entrepreneurs who yearn to make their impact through offering my professional services of 1:1 creative guidance and support. 

Covering a broad spectrum of creative services, I strive for excellence in all that I do which reflects through the quality of my work and the satisfaction of my many successful collaborators.

The values of trust, well-being, community and authentic connection are paramount to every facet of my personal and professional life. By cultivating a meaningful relationship with ourselves, we can relate to the world in an authentic, grounded and generous way.

 

In all that I do, I remind others to hold a sacred intimacy with life, their business and themselves.

Living in alignment with my own true nature allows me to use my sensitive perception and unique skill-set to contribute to the world in a meaningful way as an Artist, Business Woman and Entrepreneur.

My extensive background in the holistic health and creative industries - not only directly as a Yoga Teacher, Ceremony Practitioner and Women's Holistic Guide - but also as a Creative Director and Media Consultant support every pursuit and client engagement.

My earlier professional years were spent teaching national workshops and masterclasses - estiged as one of Ireland's leading Makeup Artists until 2017 - with work featured on CNN, RTE, The National Lottery, Don't Tell The Bride and many other publications. Most impactfully to me, however, have been the humble moments beautifying private clients from the birthday girl to the glowing bride.

As a Creative Entrepreneur for 12 years, I understand that beneath every business requires self-belief, love and trust in one's journey.

My creative contributions are supported by my continual further development on a personal and professional level. My passion is found in teaching women to work in tandem with their unique energy pattern rather than the patriarchal pathways set out by society. 

Although I continue to wear many hats, I am an Artist by nature; oftentimes sharing the truth and beauty of this human experience in each of my varied creative pursuits.

Throughout my work, I become a threshold keeper; transforming visions into actualization and dreams into reality. It is my privilege to help women take up space and to share their worthy, righteous voices with the world.

My Self-Love Journey

It is my passion, as an Artist, to encourage and inspire the self-love + growth of each and every person that I have the great honour of collaborating with.

I believe we each come equipped with unlimited potential simply waiting to be unlocked. Returning to our true nature - so that we may step into the person we came here to be - takes time, energy, dedication, perseverance, self-care, love and belief.

Here are a few words of my own personal journey...

 

My own healing journey began at the final straw. Many years neglecting my own mental and physical health, surfing on the waves of avoidance and ignorance, lead me to an illness that I couldn't so simply recover from without getting to the root of my perpetual suffering.

During my teenage and early adult years, I disregarded myself by eating harmful processed foods, drinking alcohol and smoking cannabis to excess but most detrimentally; avoiding emotional issues that I had buried inside.

 

Illness, in my formative years, became normalised as I took daily medication for digestive issues, migraines, hormonal imbalances and mental health problems before abruptly understanding - the hard way - that all of these separate symptoms were actually interlinked.

Tests, biopsies and hospitalisations failed to reveal the cause of my crisis decline in 2017, provoking a break-down of my mind, body and soul which saw me hospitalised, bedridden and void of vitality. Following the loss of my bodyweight, hair and menstrual cycle was the unfortunate loss of hope for life itself.

 

Ironically, it was in this hopelessness that I myself could finally be found.

 

I didn't break down, I broke through.
 

I spontaneously awakened to the truth that my body, mind and soul were not mechanical systems working independently of another but interconnected, synergetic, holistic and wise.

 

Without my mask, I lay in my painful truth I had spent a lifetime avoiding.
 
So with nowhere else to turn, I went inside. 

Suddenly, I knew (without knowing how I knew) that only I had the power to heal myself. If a lifetime of suppression lead to such a severity of illness, then a new chapter of expression could lead to a future of wellness. I realized that I was not a victim of circumstance, as formerly believed, but the conscious creator of my reality. It was time to take total responsibility for my health, my well-being, my relationships, my life, my future.

I began to listen to my body's cues, aches and signals as intelligent messages from a place beyond my intellect. I began to compassionately acknowledge the depth - which I perceived as darkness - I had been holding for a lifetime. I began to nurture my sensitivity and recognize it as a tremendous, previously overlooked, strength.

By allowing myself to experience every flowing emotion, I learned that even the heaviest feelings are transient in nature; awakening me to our cyclical nature as human beings. By surrendering to inner pain, I unleashed the dawning power of peace. The years of suppression, repression and depression were simply the consequence of rejecting my nature as a human being; with my own inner seasonal shifts that rhythmically ebb and flow, too.

Layer by layer, I allowed myself to softly unravel within my own arms.
 
No longer afraid of truly knowing myself, I experienced the relief only known through grief, the birth only known through death; I learned what it meant to be truly alive.

Through adopting a holistic perspective, processing inner wounds and complexities alongside shifting to a natural lifestyle that nourished - not punished - myself, I laid the groundwork for an attitude of self love, forgiveness and compassion to flourish.
 
Over time and with a lot of hard work, my body, mind and spirit began to heal.

 

Little did I know that healing was only the beginning. Beyond the conditional limitations I had placed upon myself existed an incredibly expansive person with tremendous strength, resilience, wisdom and passion for the world.

The road hasn't been easy. It has been earth shatteringly exhausting, at times infuriatingly isolating, but always breathtakingly beautiful and rewarding beyond measure. 

 

Today I understand that we are each holistic beings; part of a whole integrative system, interconnected with one another and the natural world around us. Through embracing each aspect of ourselves - the light and the dark - we can each find the fundamental inner strength to heal, grow and expand into who we really came here to be.

 

My first-hand experience of personal transformation enables me to, so deeply, connect with others who wish to awaken to their own innate power and fullest potential.

Loving ourselves, each-other and the world becomes then a 'thank you' to our ancestors for passing down their gifts - consciously or otherwise, Mother Earth for her magic and this galactifying Universe for gifting us with this sacred, mysterious existence.

I believe we each have the ability to transmute our suffering into serenity, pain into peace and experience into evolution. I am grateful, now, for everything that has happened in my life as each triumph, trauma and tragedy was, although unbeknown at the time, 

a gateway
 
to myself.
