So, here's what I'm all about. 

I believe that feeling good is your job. That it is our subconscious beliefs that create our reality, not our thoughts. That we tend to see the world as we believe it to be, not as it actually is. I believe that suffering stems from attachment and joy from presence. And that our intuition is our greatest guide, the only voice we ever need to listen to. 

Too many of us tie our worth to our work, our value to our productivity. If we're not constantly doing something, we question our purpose. But life is meant to be enjoyed! We're here on Earth to play and experiment. To revel in life's simple joys! To romanticize our lives and lead from our hearts, always.

I'm obsessed with storytelling, cats and astrology. A straight-talker. I never walk on eggshells and I deeply value integrity, honesty, kindness, and courage. ☀️

Hey there, I'm Helena! I hustled it out in NYC for 5 years before deciding to live a simpler life - one where I prioritized my own values and intuition. I began living simply around the world and in 2018, I settled in France and learned about astrocartography. So I started making videos on Youtube! Sharing my reflections and insights on life, travel and slow intuitive living.










My greatest passions in life revolve around travel, storytelling and time. Everything I do and create - both in my client readings and online creations - revolve around these core themes.

I believe that there is always time for curiosity and play in our lives. My goal is to share stories that elevate the simple joys around us, that bring positivity and light to our human experience and to guide others to find the light and truth that is within them. I am not a guru nor a life coach. But rather a deeply curious, intuitive and observant student of life.

Some other fun facts: I'm an active world traveler, an avid journaler and freelance writer. I love Buddhism and Stoic philosophy and I've been obsessed with studying astrology since 2011, when Neptune entered Pisces. In 2018, I learned about astrocartography after living and traveling around the world and now offer one-on-one client readings. 

I BELIEVE IN:

I create to connect. Life moves fast; I want to slow it down for a little while and allow time to stand still so you can remember what true connection feels like, both with yourself and with life.

destiny, the natal promise, living with integrity, the power in meditation, nature being the best medicine 

I'm NOT ABOUT:

the "Hustle", social media trends,  achievement-chasing, vision boards and glorifying having / doing  things in order to be happy and fulfilled. 

YOU CAN FIND ME:

cuddling a cat, singing to the birds, reading library books, writing letters with a quill, whispering to the moon.

daily rituals

meditation, looking up the day's transits, cuddles with my husband, hot chocolate, barefoot walks in nature, swims in the sea, morning pages, dancing with life

Colorful, vibrant & flamboyant flowers - especially those that grow through concrete on the sidewalk!

Old-fashioned polaroids! There is nothing quite like taking a polaroid of a moment in time and watching it develop slowly - I hang my polaroids around my house and they are such a treasure.

The sea! It's my zone of serenity where all of my soul's messages come through...

Journals. I'm that person scribbling my thoughts, dreams and stories in 4 different notebooks at once. Poetry, letters, short stories, songs, blog posts - you name it, I write it!

Agree / disagree? 

Many of us approach life from a results-focused perspective. We aim for outcomes instead of how we wish to feel and "be" in our lives. Instead, let's create our lives from the inside-out. It's time to discover your core values!
