What ever became of Helen Reddy?
She was invincible, she roared and she foresaw Bobby Kennedy’s death?
She is Helen Reddy, queen of 70′s pop. The Australian singer/songwriter, embraced by women worldwide in the 70′s for her bra-burning anthem I Am Woman, is now living a quiet existence out of the limelight as a practicing hypnotherapist and motivational speaker.
Helen gave up show business, fame, fortune and live performances in 2002 and retired to Norfolk Island for a simpler life.
She had won a Grammy, appeared in feature films and on Broadway, sold millions of albums, had her own tv show and penned an autobiography “The Woman I Am”. In her Grammy award acceptance speech she thanked God, quipping “she makes everything possible!” and for Helen Reddy, she has!
This icon, who started in show business at the age of four, has always had a sense of her destiny. From an early age, she would tell her girlfriends at school in Australia, that she would one day go to Hollywood and be in the movies.
Reddy had an out of body experience at the age of eleven, which caused her to question her beliefs and created a curiosity into understanding her spirituality (before this experience she had made her mind up to be an atheist).
Throughout her adult life, Helen had dreams and premonitions of events to come. Most notably seeing the date, June 6th, 1968 etched in black in a vision while she was following the election primaries of Bobby Kennedy. Kennedy was shot after winning the California Primaries, and was removed from life support and declared dead on June 6th, 1968.
With the election of George Bush in 2000, Reddy had the premonition that America was going to change. At that time, she read a book by Louise Hay that changed her life and helped her to understand she needed to take responsibility for her own life. So Reddy contacted her friend Florence Henderson (that’s right Mrs. Brady) and enrolled in classes given by Flo’s husband Dr. John Kappas. At the age of 60, Helen Reddy received her degree in Clinical Hypnotherapy.
Helen, now 71, is still actively pursuing her past lives and spirituality. Although she retired from the limelight years ago to pursue her passion for Hypnotherapy, Helen has recently been drawn out of retirement and has creeped up in a few cameos and acting gigs that were uncharacteristic to say the least.

Recently, Helen was asked;
“How do you want to be remembered Helen Reddy?”
Rather than answering with her music or career, her answer was this;
“Being kind” and “Only one thing matters that the world is a better place for my being in it.”
Yes, Helen, we think it is.
