It’s with deep deep sadness that we’ve received the devastating news that our lovely Rep Kelly decided to end her life and transition last weekend.
I know this will come as a huge shock to many of you. Kelly was a beautiful loving Soul and had been struggling for some time, especially as a sensitive empath with the world in such crisis. As we all know, this is not a linear journey and every day can bring new challenges for us to navigate.
This is a tragic loss of a beautiful Soul, too bright for our world in crisis… Kelly touched so many hearts whilst she was on the Earth plane.
It’s been a hugely challenging decision as a friend and Publisher to decide whether to continue to promote the Emerging Proud through Suicide book that Kelly was Rep for, but ultimately I think Kelly would wish for her message to continue in the hope that other lives can be saved.
This is an opportunity for Kelly’s voice, message and love to continue to have a positive ripple effect beyond her death.
This tragedy demonstrates just how vital the messages in this book are, and how safe holding places are desperately needed which provide love and compassion over pathologisation, whatever a person may be experiencing.
Kelly had unbounded energy and enthusiasm for doing this work, and in this book her voice, loving spirit, positivity and magic can live on.
Please please take time now to self-care – Kelly was so dedicated to her mission she always put others before herself, but I know she would want each and every one of us to take care of ourselves during this grieving process.
Surround yourself with support; I’m attaching a resources list should you need to reach out for anything more than you already have around you. I am doing the same.
TALK about how you really feel; Emerging Proud is offering a Grief- tending and sharing circle space for you to process some emotions, should you wish to take part. It will be gently held and facilitated by my dear friend and skilled Facilitator Rosie along with a Guardian.
Here are the details of the circle, should you wish to join in honouring Kelly’s life;

Over the coming days some of the Emerging Proud community who knew and loved Kelly will be sharing their messages in her honour, but for now I’ll let Kelly have the final wise words…
“Hold on tight! The sun will shine again and you will be glad you never let go.”
Kelly, The Positivity Princess, 28th Nov 1975 – 27th Feb 2021
With love to you all in our shared loss, Katie ❤
