Hi Everyone! I’m Helen, from Liverpool, UK. I have one adult son who has recently moved out, so now it’s just me and the dog.
I love yoga, and am also a yoga instructor, (I often blog about yoga too). I love to introduce other people to the incredible life changing benefits of it. I am also passionate about dancing as I find it creates a high vibration in me, keeps me positive, and keeps me fit as well. Other than that, the rest of my free time taken up going on lovely country walks with my dog.
I was cold, exposed, and really happy
February in Northwest UK may not seem like the best time, or place in the world to begin a new hobby of swimming in the sea…. But there is a craze sweeping across the coastal towns of the UK, with participants reporting huge improvements in their wellbeing. People are happier, stating natural highs and more energy…. I just had to have a go.
Sea swimming is one of natures natural medicines
I first heard of this madness around the autumn time last year, but my friend Jen and I, being the chickens that…
I expect every single person who reads this knows someone who has been affected by cancer, or maybe even themselves. I have known family members and some friends and colleagues who have sadly been through it, so have some knowledge of the reality.
I have never before imagined cancer in such a vivid form. I am aware that something is growing inside her, taking her over, spreading around her organs causing havoc. The invasion of the aliens she calls it. So now we’re in a battle of who wins. The alien invasion, or my mum.
I have also had a…
I used to be the sort of person that thought natural or herbal remedies were a bit of an old wife’s tale. Maybe providing a bit of comfort and a placebo effect but not to be compared with ‘real drugs’. That was until I witnessed their powers for myself. Now I’m so convinced, I always seek out natural remedies first for any ailment.
Here are my 5 favourite tried and tested gifts from Mother Earth.

Imagine a beautiful future then watch as it manifests in reality.
I was recently invited to take part in an online webinar with hypnotherapist Glenn Harrold. I was free to ask him any questions I liked about any issue I have, so we spoke about a long-standing confidence issue of mine that concerns me. I struggle sometimes to speak up for myself, to ask for what I need. Like a block I can’t seem to navigate around.
Glenn gave me a range of tools to help deal with this, one of them being positive visualization. He said to imagine a…
Is there a deep dark secret you have buried, or a memory you think you can’t face as it’s too painful? Is there a phone call or a conversation you have been putting off making? I promise you, by facing it head-on, this will liberate you and help you find freedom.
Acknowledge it all fully. Write it out on paper or speak it out loud to a person or professional you trust. The outcome will surprise you.
‘I have done it. The one I was avoiding like the plague. …
I accidentally fell into the world of psychedelics a few years ago, and like most people who find this path, or more likely, the path finds them, it’s one you just don’t want to get off.
So, I have been experimenting with growing my own mushrooms, and like any good farmer, thought it only right and proper to test my product. Away from ceremony, I have only ever microdosed and believed one fresh mushroom would be about right to microdose with.
I took it one morning intending to just have increased productivity and creativity for the day. That one mushroom…
Sterilise, Sterilise, Sterilise
I’ve successfully grown mushrooms at home this year. After a few trial and error attempts, I believe I have found an fail-safe method that you can do yourself without any specialist equipment.
I have seen people regularly complain that their effort ends in failure with the substrate going mouldy, so here is a step by step guide to explain how I do it. (I’ll put links to some of the products I use at the end of this blog)
In the area you will be preparing your jars of substrate, before you begin put everything away…
And you can too
Kundalini Yoga has always been the one branch of yoga which, for me, is a bit ‘out there’. Talk of releasing coiled snakes at the bottom of your spine…Hmmm! However, forever curious, I always knew I would get into it at some point in my life. Before 2020 I had done a few kundalini classes which I found interesting but didn’t have enough time to commit to it properly. Then along came lockdown and I took the opportunity to explore this uncoventional practice.
It’s all been very exciting in Liverpool UK recently. The new Batman movie, to be released in 2022, was being filmed here, and there have been plenty of chances to catch a glimpse of epic scenes and A list Hollywood stars.
As a lifelong Batman fan, I was thrilled when Liverpool temporarily metamorphosed into spectacular, eccentric Gotham City. I was careful to be on my guard, as notorious supervillians such as Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin (Colin Farrell), and mob boss Carmine Falcon (John Turturro) were roaming our streets, looking to execute their evil plans.
Catwoman (Zoe Kravitz) was also…
