Known as the “Last Witch” and “Hellish Nell”, Helen Duncan was a physical medium from Scotland. To many, she was a spiritualist martyr who helped shape modern day Spiritualism, but to skeptics she was simply a fraud.

Psychic abilities ran on both sides of her family, so as a child it wasn’t uncommon for Helen to see spirits and make predictions that would later come true. In fact, her predictions as a child were so accurate that they got her into trouble on many occasions. As a child it can be so disheartening to see and know things that others aren’t privy to.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I'm a tea fanatic. I'm addicted to starting my day with a good chai tea. Yeah Yeah, I know... caffeine isn't the best thing for a Lightworker but I just can't help myself. It's my guilty pleasure.
Several years ago, I decided to stop drinking coffee and replaced it with tea in an attempt to lower my caffeine intake, but I was desperately missing my beloved pumpkin spice coffee until I found the perfect pumpkin spice chai tea.
