The Story Behind This Site
Welcome to Naturegrooves! My name is Lucie, and a large part of my life has been devoted to music. I have played piano and keyboards with various bands and solo artists in the UK and Europe. It’s been an eventful and colourful path, which I’ve described in more detail in the post My Musical Journey.
I also compose my own music and have featured on a number of records by various artists. More on the page Recordings and Releases.
However, life on the road was not always about the highs on stage with amazing fellow musicians or hilarious moments in the tour van. From the very start of my life on the road, I became aware that the joys of this lifestyle can well equal the challenges.
Especially when it comes to trying to stay in good shape physically and psychologically. On tours, one is often sleep-deprived, and the temptation to keep rocking with the help of booze is ever-present. And I haven’t been an exception.
I was very frequently ill, suffering from respiratory issues. As a child I had asthma, and although the condition had improved by the time I reached twenty, it was replaced by weak immunity and very frequent chest infections and pneumonias.
I would also periodically go through depressive phases with self-destructive tendencies. To be frank, acts of self-harming and thoughts of self-annihilation were not at all rare. Also, I often found it hard to control my states of mind, so when I got angry or hysterical, it was a serious health & safety hazard for anyone in the vicinity.
The Wake-Up Call
In 2018 I experienced a strange incident when my body suddenly collapsed and all I could feel were tangible currents of energy travelling up my limbs as if to leave me. On the way to the hospital I could hear the ambulance crew saying the words ‘possible heart attack’.
I spent several hours in the hospital unconscious, and then I was sent home with no diagnosis. Whatever it was, it was certainly a big warning sign for me to start taking better care of my body.
Discovering the Realm of Holistic Healing
So, in order to prevent ending up a wreck on all levels, I started to learn about ways to keep healthy and maintain high levels of energy. I found out that the best way was through closer alignment with nature, and through learning about the subtle energies of my mind and body, so I could take more control over my health.
I started exploring the field of holistic healing. This broad term includes many things that lead to the healing of the person as a whole, addressing the health of mind, body, and spirit.
The main areas of my interest are ancient healing techniques, energy medicine (also known as vibrational medicine), using tuning forks for working in the body’s electromagnetic field, meditation, and personal and spiritual growth. A lot of my posts are devoted to these practices because they have changed my life for the better.
