Home-Made Granola

My confession of the month is that I like sweet things, I just do. I know how inflammatory sugar is, but my love for sweetness very often clouds my judgment in choice making, especially when it comes to breakfast. So I have put my thinking hat on and decided to find a healthier solution that is still delicious and sweet. This is how after many trials I have come to the recipe that I’m going to share here with you. There are no nasty things here and you can tailor it to your own needs. Because of my son’s nut […] Read more »

Reiki – energy for life

I was thinking and hoping at the beginning of 2019 – hoping for a better year, a better world, a better me. I was wondering how can I achieve this goal and make this year better and more meaningful. How can I immerse myself with love for the world and others. I found out that I’ve known the answer to this question for a very long time – the answer lies inside me, and more precisely in the love that I hold for myself. Because only in loving myself first can I open my heart to the world and to […] Read more »

The Sacred Blood

I’m truly worried by the attitude and perception that menstrual blood has in our society today. It’s surprising that this red substance can still conjure such strong emotions not only in men but also in women. Why are we still in the grasp of such an outdated outlook? Maybe the secret to it lies in the history of human perception of blood? In many cultures blood is considered as the dwelling of the life force, the most sacred of things. In many beliefs it’s an abode of divine energy or human soul. Some blood rituals can bring rain or fertility, […] Read more »

Gluten free oat berry muffins

My friends all know how much I love food. I do truly it’s one of the loves of my life. I was devastated when two years ago I had to remove gluten from my diet. I’m not a gourmet chef, I’m actually no chef at all, and when I looked at the list of things I wouldn’t be able to eat, I felt like crying. I actually did cry – that’s how much I love food. But two years down the line, after embracing the impossible and removing most dairy products from my diet, I’m improving – health wise and […] Read more »

Luxury for your skin

When I started writing this blog, winter was slowly spreading her icy fingers all over England. She left all her beautiful drawings on the blades of grass and last year’s leaves. Now the days are longer and the promise of summer hangs in the air. All the birds in my garden woke up with exiting urgency and frenzy. My brain is in spring mode and my skin is asking for some attention and TLC. Slowly even I begin to worship the coming summer. In my last blog I shared with you how to make herbal infused oil. I hope you’ve tried […] Read more »

Mr Crow’s Crew

It was a beautiful October morning back in 2014. I was on my way to work for the first time. I was nervous and excited. I had a cup of coffee in my hand and head full of questions and hopes, you know – the usual on the way to your new job. A series of loud caws stopped me in my tracks. I looked up and this was the first time I met Mr Crow. He looked like an ordinary crow, and yet there was something very much extraordinary about him. I said “Hello”, he “Cawed” back. I thought […] Read more »

Herbal infused oils

After a busy summer, with autumn on our doorstep, I feel I have again enough time to sit down and write. It was a truly busy year in my life. I conducted some interesting experiments, trying to find a way to a healthier and greener life, and now I’m just itching to write about it. I have a few new recipes for remedies and healthy body care products that I would like to share with you, and for the past few days I was wondering where to start and what to describe first. There was a river of rough waters […] Read more »

“Look to this day”

I have been studying and practicing Reiki for the past fifteen years. It has become to me not only a tool of healing but also, and most of all, a way of life. I try to live by Reiki principles every day and I teach their importance to all my students. There are 5 Reiki principles, and each of them start with the same words; words that are setting the intention and the time frame – JUST FOR TODAY. Why are those words so important? Because they show us how in todays’ world we can become calm, relaxed and truly […] Read more »

Closing the Bones Ceremony

Living life as a woman is filled with the experiences of opening and letting out – we menstruate, give birth, and let our hormones and emotions flow in, out and all around. We are opening ourselves into the world physically and energetically, but very often we forget to close ourselves at the end of things, which leaves us not only open at all times, but also very often empty. Is there anything out there that can help women change this state? Yes, there is. Closing the bones is a postpartum healing ceremony, from South American tradition, where the new mother […] Read more »

Spring tea

As the days grow longer and the sun is warming our bodies, the promise of Spring brings happiness and joy. I love this time of year. The earth wakes up from its wintery sleep and you can almost hear the growing plants and shoots. It takes a lot of energy. A similar thing is happening to our bodies. After the sleepiness of winter, we are becoming awake and more active. Our bodies need more energy and sun, but here comes the other side of the coin, because very often at this time of year we feel tired and pretty lifeless. […] Read more »
