It’s crazy how we abuse ourselves to run away from abus​e!

Why do we do self harm and abuse ourselves when we feel abused? There is no one in this world who can claim not to feel pain.  The circumstances and situations  differ,  the magnitude of our pain may differ and the way we deal with pain will...

Hey, can I buy you a drink?

Hey, can I buy you a drink?

Temptations are everywhere.  Funny how we all want that we cannot have! Food is no exception.  For reasons best known to experts, we are attracted to heavy, fried, oily, food. When I decided to go on a journey of letting go of the extra weight...

Listen to those hunches!!!

Listen to those hunches!!!

We are meant to be soul people; soft, caring, loving with compassion for those around us.  Aren't we all born  with a blank canvas? Apart from a spiritual line of thinking that we bring our past karma's with us, the reality is that our present circumstances...

Lessons Learnt from Detoxing My Soul

Lessons Learnt from Detoxing My Soul

Detox your Soul

Detox your Soul

I have often participated in 'short term' solutions through my life.  If I had too much to eat, I would detox through abstinence from certain food for a period of time, popularly called 'fasting'. If I had too much to drink, then I would detox using liver...

Sabotage – loss makes us our own enemy

Sabotage – loss makes us our own enemy

We have all been through our share of losses. The pain of losing someone very close is not something one can describe in words. People talk about moving on, letting go, about making peace within, not holding on to any pain, so on and so forth. Whilst...

It Hurts so Good.

It Hurts so Good.

Before forcing myself to get back to the gym this week, I wasn’t exactly what one would call “in shape.” Having just returned from a a hiatus over Christmas that extended until the end of winter, I’d acquired four months of bread/snacks/ couch potato weight and...

Help! I have fallen and I am just getting back up

Help! I have fallen and I am just getting back up

Last year, after my big health scare, I lost 4 stone (over 25 kilos) in 8 months of making huge lifestyle changes. I made better food choices, exercised, ensured I got enough sleep every night and worked on my general well being. Then, things changed. I suffered a...

I Did Not Fit In

I Did Not Fit In

I hated "fitting rooms" for years  (apart from hating to shop unlike most women). Nothing would fit me. I had reached a stage in 2012, even a size 20 (yes, SIZE 20) would be a tight fit.  I felt miserable. I felt disappointed, I shouted at my self, swore at...

Raga Olga D’silva’s book is titled Untold Lies but it might well be called Told Truths. Her storyoems are truthful to the core. A voice that deserves to be heard…whether in prose or poetry.

Wendell Rodricks

The best thing in life is “love” and yet there is “fear” always attached to it. That is the irony of life. And love. In these beautiful poems and stories or should I say “storyoems”, Raga Olga D’Silva brings out the beauty of these two emotions in a poignant and evocative manner, in words simply told. Perhaps a first of its kind, this collection is heart-warming.”
