It’s been a while since I posted. I miss updating my blog so I thought I’d aim to start sharing weekly again. New happenings in my world include: ⟢ Getting the fourth all-clear CT Scan and Bloods since my cancer treatment finished (and not getting overcome by scanxiety)  ⟢ Going away for an incredible witchy retreat […]

All change!

To the me of a year ago. Midway through chemo and feeling like 💩 Dear Chemo Lauren, I know you feel like absolute shit right now. It’s the never-ending nausea and bloating. It’s the fact you can’t sleep without being sat upright. It’s the way food doesn’t taste the same. It’s the fact you need […]

To the me of a year ago on Chemo…

The fourth quarterly check I’ve had came back…. ok! I didn’t have any reason to think it wouldn’t, but still feels really good to see it in black and white. Still seeing plenty of longer term impacts of the chemo, but feel like I’m gradually detoxing. Healing at a deep level- cancer was the wake […]

CT Scan Results are in…

Going through cancer is one of the toughest things life can throw at you- both for the person going through it and their loved ones. However, maintaining a calm mindset as much as possible and stopping going negative thought spirals too often helps with the healing process. When I found myself getting anxious, I found […]

Dealing with Anxiety after Cancer

Over the last year, I’ve done a lot of shadow work – going through cancer means you are basically forced to confront many different elements of yourself as you are literally put in many challenging situations – so I saw it as a growth opportunity, but over a year later, I’m still reeling from it. […]

Why Shadow Work is Essential

I’ve procrastinated over starting to post regularly again, as I’m worried about sharing my journey as it might be triggering or cause people to unsubscribe because I’m talking about having cancer and all that entails (but not only that!) Somehow when I was on chemo, I was happy to share – I think it was part […]

Changing the Narrative around a Cancer diagnosis

Have you heard people saying they are a ‘red witch’ or ‘white witch’ and wondered quite what they meant? It’s all about how your menstrual or energetic cycle aligns with the moon cycle. You don’t need to menstruate to utilise these cyclical living insights – we are all naturally cyclical because we evolved alongside the […]

What Kind of Witch are you according to your cycle?

After getting the diagnosis back in July, literally the next day I started booking alternative healing treatments. And when I shared my news on Instagram, amazing women also stepped forward and gifted me their own modality of healing which was just incredible. Whilst no one would choose to be in this ‘Club’, the people I […]

Complementary therapies that have helped

Me at home

Following on from my last post, a LOT has happened and I’m not sure where to start with it all, but I wanted to put together a post to share the latest in this crazy journey I’m on. So just under 2 weeks after the operation, I had the follow up appointment with the consultant […]

Prepping for Chemotherapy

I’ve just come home after 5 nights in hospital. I was dreading taking the prep – basically really strong laxatives to clear your system out, but actually it wasn’t as bad as the stuff I had to take prior to the Colonoscopy- it was called Piccolax and whilst it did the job, it didn’t make […]
