I spent years drowning in to-do lists feeling like I never got on top of anything for more than five minutes.

And then I started to find teachers who taught me to create spaciousness like this one I’m pretty sure was inspired by in her brilliant book ‘Do Less’ (go buy it now if you haven’t already. And if you’ve already read it, it’s probably time to read it again).

On a Monday I look at my to do list.

And, instead of looking to prioritise all the things, I first start by looking at what I can cull and what I can delegate to somebody else.

Then - this is the real magic part I’ve discovered - I look at what I think needs to be done today by me and I question it.

I ask myself, really Kia, does this need to be done today?

Is it going to create a sense of rushing? If so, is it worth it?

I want to live a slow life. I have a business and two kids and a house that seems to be hit by a tornado seconds after I wipe down a surface and declare my space clean. My life feels full.

So I have to get really honest with myself as to whether my deadlines are realistic, whether what I’m making a priority that honours my highest desire, which is to go slow, and whether it really needs to be done by me.

I hope this helps. And thank you Kate, for helping me all those years ago when I first discovered your book.

Swipe for the steps and a lovely quote from that is from a card from one of her oracle decks that flew out almost every day for months before I finally committed to doing my best to do only what matters! X

How To Find Your Purpose Tip:

Look out for the things where you feel most yourself.

Those are what I call little ‘this way signs’ that tell you.. do more of this, explore that..

When I’m painting, I feel like I’ve come home.

Like I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be, and a tangible sense of glee ripples through the cells in my body.

I also get this when I’m speaking to a group of people about how to cultivate the courage to take messy, courageous action towards the things that are calling you.

What makes you feel the most “you”?

It’s a great question to ponder, and as Cathy says, lean into whatever makes you feel the most ‘you’ right now.

🎨 3 Tips to Create Art You Love

1️⃣ Collate other people's art that you feel is inside you and wanting to come out. Inspiration can come from anywhere, and surrounding yourself with the work of artists who inspire you can help you tap into your own creativity.

2️⃣ Start copying the elements you like and notice what you learn. Copying art you love can be a great way to learn new techniques and understand what you enjoy creating. It’s natural to be afraid of copying, just keep these workings private, and as you practice and bring lots of varying elements together, you'll start to develop your own unique style.
3️⃣ Allow your intuition to guide what comes next. Once you've absorbed inspiration from others and honed your skills through practice, it's time to let your intuition take over. Experiment and try new things. Trust yourself and let your art flow.

Remember, creating art is a journey, and it's important to enjoy the process. By following these tips, you can create art that truly speaks to you and reflects your unique style. So grab your supplies and get creating! 🎨✨

Imagine yourself in your ideal creative space. What does it look like? Using descriptive language paint a picture of this space in your mind, and capture what it looks like, what sounds you can hear, what it smells like. When you imagine a space that’s yours, what do you see?

Give yourself time today to journal on this prompt. Perhaps head to Pinterest to flesh out your heart’s desires into a vivid picture. If creativity is calling you, visualising a space to play in is a great first step.

For more prompts like these, head to my website kiacannons.com and download my brand-new Creative Foundations Workbook: Starting Your Artistic Journey.

Remember, the only person you need permission from, is you.

As I reflect on my journey so far, I realize that there have been three major lessons that have had a profound impact on my life. These lessons have helped me grow, evolve, and become the person I am today. I hope that by sharing them with you, they can also bring you value and help you on your own journey.

Lesson 1: ☀️ You're meant to do what you love. Life is too short to spend your days doing something that doesn't light you up inside. Trust me, when you do what you love, everything else falls into place.

Lesson 2: 💓 Your suffering had a purpose. It's often through our pain that we discover our greatest strengths and the things that truly matter to us. These things often translate into something we want to help the world with.

Lesson 3: 💪 You have to take messy courageous action. Don't wait for the perfect plan - you just have to jump in and figure it out as you go. Embrace the messiness and the uncertainty, and trust the process.

These three principals have been instrumental in shaping my life and helping me navigate the ups and downs of this journey. I hope that they can bring you some guidance as you pursue your own dreams and aspirations. ⚡️

Remember to follow your heart, notice if you feel led to help people with the challenges you’ve overcome, and take bold messy action – and if you need to find your people, there’s an entire community of creative women doing just this inside my monthly membership, Untold Happiness. We’d love to have you join us. 🤗

Hi everyone!

I am delighted to release my latest collection of paintings.

This collection was created in the Summer of 2022 as part of my Intuitive Painting Classes.

They are mostly paintings on paper using ink, graphite + acrylic.

This series of works was created as a result of challenging myself to paint without to my beloved rubber blades. It was the first time I painted with just brushes and muted tones. And wow did I fall in love with the process. So fun to stretch yourself.

Here’s the result! Perfect for a Christmas gift for a loved one (that includes you ☺️)

Available to purchase from Sunday 30th Oct at 8pm UK / 4pm EST / 1pm PAC.

Head to kiacannons.com/newpaintings for more info!

This week I got the guidance to offer you something wild!

It’s been on my heart to help more of you uncover your soul-purpose.

I know how it feels to be unfulfilled, know something needs to change, but not want to take another wrong turn!

It’s hard.

Which is why I created Passage to Purpose, a 9 week program that solves this problem for you.

Instead of taking the course on your own (for £350) I am offering you the opportunity to take this course AND get coached in a small group with me live for 3 months, all for £100.

There's only 4 spots left.

Inside the course you will:

- Uncover what you are great at AND love doing, that fits your desired lifestyle.

- Learn how to discern between an soul-aligned idea and yet another idea your brain has come up with : )

- Create the energy and drive to keep going when it gets challenging.

- And so so much more.

We start on Monday, as follows:

Kick Off Call - Mon 10th Oct, 6.30pm UK / 1.30pm EST / 10.30am PAC

Coaching Call #1 - Mon 14th Nov, 6.30pm UK / 1.30pm EST / 10.30am PAC

Coaching Call #2 - Mon 12th Dec, 6.30pm UK / 1.30pm EST / 10.30am PAC

Coaching Call #3 - Mon 9th Jan, 6.30pm UK / 1.30pm EST / 10.30am PAC

I believe everyone needs to do this course. What could be more important than answering your soul-purpose?

If you’ve ever been drawn to work with me, this is an amazing opportunity.

The link is in my Stories! 4 spaces left.

I would love to support you.

You deserve a life you love.

Hi! I’m Kia.

It’s been a while since I introduced myself and I’m taking part in Amber Lilyestrom’s 40day challenge and today’s prompt is to reintroduce ourselves.

I love Amber’s direction to share the stuff that talks about the real you. I nearly always talk about want to share to help you. But here’s something a little bit different.

This is who I am..

I’m excitable and expressive (was a total nightmare for my teacher’s at school “she’d do great if she’d stop talking in class”)

When I walk barefoot in the forest amongst the pine trees, I feel like I’m home.

It’s the same when I’m swimming in the sea with the wind on my face and the sunbeams warming my skin, I tangibly feel I’ve come home to myself.

One of my dreams is to live amongst the pine trees by the ocean.

Cooking feasts for my family brings me huge joy (and enormous misery to my family on clean up duty – “why do you have to involve all the pots and every serving dish in the house?” they complain).

I have books upon books inside myself that I’ve been excited to write since my late teens, and struggle to find the time to dedicate to them.

Most of the time I just want to be left alone.

I am deeply intuitive and have learned how to allow signs and inner-guidance to navigate life and its made All. The. Difference.

So that’s essentially me… messy, expressive, in love with colour, spiritual, and full of desire to share, teach and pass on the tools that have transformed my life.

The second episode of my brand new Do What You Love mini series just dropped!

In this second episode of the mini-series we have Louise Boyce aka Mama Still Got It as our guest! Louise is someone who had a simple idea, forged the courage to try it and experienced enormous success as a result.

In this series I am chatting with people who have mastered the art of doing what they love and I ask them the same three questions:

How did you find the confidence to embark on 'doing what you love' instead of settling for a 'sensible job'?

What sacrifices (if any) have you had to make, and has it been worth it?

How did you develop your mindset to believe you can make a living doing what you love?

These are questions I was desperate to ask when I was trying to figure out how to escape work I hated and do what I love.

Thanks Louise for sharing your experience!

Podcast available on iTunes, Spotify etc. Just search for ‘Happy Hacks’.

This coming week's itinerary for the 30-day Challenge to Strengthen Your Intuition!

Be sure to set yourself a reminder, especially for the scheduled lives..

We have more live meditation this week, an introduction to instant signs using oracle cards on Thursday (no worries if you don't have any, I'll be sharing instant signs without oracle cards too), and Saturday I'll be popping in live at 5pm to give live oracle readings!

Bonus! Access to my private membership session: Creative Hour
This coming Wednesday you'll also have the opportunity to join my private membership ladies and I for our monthly creative hour! Bring some pieces of card A6 or A7 size is great, and we will be making 'Messenger Cards' - your own personal oracle style cards! (This is a live session and the replay is only available to members of Untold Happiness so be sure to set an alarm if you want to come. The Zoom link will be emailed to you Wednesday)

What a fab week ahead!

What are you looking forward to most?

Kia Cannons’ Story

At the end of 2015, Kia attended her first art class and started posting pictures of her classwork on Instagram. She noticed many artists making a full time career out of painting and selling their work through Instagram so made it her mission to learn everything she could and as a result saw rapid growth and began selling her paintings regularly.

People regularly began to ask Kia for her Instagram advice and a sudden decline in Kia’s health led her to utilise the 9 months she spent unable to walk to write down everything she had learned about Instagram. This became a bestselling eBook which teaches creative entrepreneurs how they can do the same for themselves.

In 2018 Kia launched her podcast Happy Hacks which has ranked #3 in the UK iTunes charts for wellness and is an outer monologue documenting her journey in self-development. Everything from mindset, habits, spiritual awakenings and designing a life and career you love are discussed in Kia’s open, conversational way.

In 2019 Kia officially moved into the world of coaching creative women on how to do what they love. Aside from coaching, giving talks, podcasting and writing for Psychologies Magazine, Kia continues to create hot wax batik paintings exploring the communication of emotion via abstract form.
