About Helen White

Helen White is a professional artist and published writer with two primary blogs to her name. Her themes pivot around health and wellbeing, expanded consciousness and ways of noticing how life is a constant dance between the deeply subjective and the collective-universal, all of which she explores with a daily hunger to get to know herself better. A lifetime of "feeling outside" of mainstream...slowly emerging as Asperger's Syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome plus a complex of co-morbid health challenges, being a confirmed Highly Sensitive Person and an INFJ personality type, not to mention born under an out of bounds moon (need I go on) fed into the creation of Living Whole; a self-exploratory blog fed by a wide angle lens tilted at "health and wellness" topics. Meanwhile, Spinning the Light is a free-for-all covering a multitude of playful and positive subjects about life in the broadest sense...written with a no-holds-barred approach. Needless to say, their subjects cross over quite often.

Being diverse; my life in training

Autism isn’t how most people imagine it and there are still such a lot of distorted beliefs and stigma attached, which creates a culture where diagnosis is missed or even avoided. I am autistic, yet it took me 51 years … Continue reading

Choosing life: Jig of Life and the Ninth Wave

“For Now does ride in on the curl of the wave,

And you will dance with me in the sunlit pools.

We are of the going water and the gone.

We are of water in the holy land of water

And all that’s to come runs in

With the thrust on the strand.” Continue reading

Crack between worlds

When he speaks of the current times we are in, as of 2020, visionary scientist Greg Braden refers to this phase as a crack between worlds, just like those we experience each day just before the dawn or at the … Continue reading

Now is the moment to walk our talk

Now is also the time to invest with our full attention on what we really want, not what seems, what others talk about, what the papers say but what we really prefer and, if t doesn’t exist yet, get creative with our imagination. We need to energetically vote for the world we want to be living in, every moment of every single day. Continue reading

Writing “ourstory” together

What comes after “history”, what (can we speculate) takes over ready to walk us into a golden future? How do we continue to tell our story? Whilst truth will always remain, to some degree, a subjective thing, the very allowing of the subjectiveness…peaceably…leads us to a new, curious, intelligent, open-minded, accepting, inclusive way of spinning stories that feeds a better future rather than always seeking to claim the victory of the past or control the future. Rather, we feed the future…together. Continue reading

Preparing to meet Earth’s higher self

Whether you believe in astrologically scheduled leaps or not, I am living testament to them, of learning hands-on what it is to wield subtle yet undoubted powers of energetic influence that I once believed to be fable (or had no opinion about at all) and so I maintain that is something I am familiar with…and can still learn from, hence the current desire to revisit the era when they first awoke in me and the dark that preceded that (just as we are seemingly in the dark mire now, collectively). Learning from what I have been through, I find myself newly poised for the shift in eras that is upon us (yes, its written in the stars). Continue reading

Mars comes close

How many of us empaths and sensitives detach from power for fear that power is wrong?? Because of the way we see it demonstrated in the messed-up world, we decide we want nothing to do with it…forgetting there is a choice how power can be used, that there is not only one way, the broken way, but another way that makes us more whole and connected with heart energy, and with each other. Continue reading

Joy Activist

Joy doesn’t just come to us, we have to take steps to activate it, yet the more we create joy, the more joy we will create, for ourselves and others. This doesn’t even rely on creating the kind of joy that is visible to the outside world; it can be a deeply private joy-practice and yet it still ripples out to affect the energy field in which we all rub shoulders with one other, and it does make a huge difference. This form of activism is as important as any other, because it has never been more important that we all pulled together to hold a placeholder for the frequency of joy so that we get to take it with us into the next iteration of our world.

Dream therapist

Don’t ever underestimate the power of sleep to heal, answer big questions or serve as the therapist you could never quite manage to hook up with…as we tend to innately realise as children and as I’ve been newly reminded lately. Continue reading

New synapses, old synapses

I’ve had a growing feeling all year long that the exercise in social distancing has been some sort of externalised manoeuvre of growing new synapses. The more the old haunts of my daily walks closed off, became inaccessible or had too many people suddenly launched into them, the more I discovered new places, often right beneath the very eyes of where I used to pass by but never noticed the subtle entrance to pathways into enchanted woods that have turned out to be new-favourite walks.
