Take your vibe up a notch (or 10) – Rewriting my Default 2.0

I’ve written before about rewiring my brain to have a new default pattern for when I’m feeling a bit shitty.

The plan was, and still is, if I’m feeling frustrated or angsty, then instead of having a meltdown, I decided I’d go into my heart space and live through that (BTW there’s a meditation for that 😉 )

And now I’m feeling called to update this default.

You see, going into my heart space is good and all, but all it does is shift my mindset.  [Read more…]

If you’re not sure of the next step you need to take, read this

There is nothing to DO, but everything to BEThere is nothing you have to DO, but everything you want to BE.

Don’t WORRY about the next step.

Don’t WORRY about the great plans you have.

Don’t WORRY about implementation.


All you need to do is BE.  [Read more…]

How to get in flow

How to be in flow - art from the heartGet in flow! Get in flow! Get in flow!

We all want to get in flow – to BE in flow – because this is when we are in our highest place of alignment, it’s when things just.work, it’s when we’re in the most joy, and most importantly it’s when we just.feel.good.

But sometimes it feels like we’re just missing the mark.

In between kid wrangling, partner wrangling, house wrangling, and let’s face it – wrangling ourselves around all this – we just kind of lose the plot.  [Read more…]

You haven’t learnt to say No yet

Anna Shelley - custom meditations, guided meditations, and all round manifesting badasseryI was having a conversation with someone a couple of weeks ago, and she’s a fabulous person in every way, but she said something that I find very interesting, and completely disagree with.

She said to me:

Ahh so you haven’t learnt to say No yet.

Honestly? I was kind of dumbfounded.  [Read more…]

The Lone Wolf Muse, and some questions to ask in meditation

The Freedom You Seek Is All In Your Mind - Lone Wolf MeditationYou can’t rely on ANYONE except yourself.

Oh yeah, it’s NICE, and in fact AWESOME to have a support network.

You are familiar with the phrase, “It takes a village to raise a child.” Well how about this: It takes a village FULL STOP.

But I KNOW that in this modern world where we are so separated from who we are and who we were and those around us, that we can NOT rely on ANYONE but ourselves. And what’s more, I strangely encourage this line of thinking to pull you UP and OUT and IN to the next version of your self.

Because get this: The freedom you seek is all in your mind. [Read more…]

I’ve leapt INTO the beauty

Anna Shelley - custom meditations, guided meditations, and all round manifesting badasseryI’m going to let you in on a little secret…

I don’t know what the hell I’m doing.

The fear is so great that I am paralysed like a deer in the headlights.

It’s a different kind of fear to that though.

I feel like I’ve been walking along a beautiful path, and I can see all this beauty from the top of a cliff, so I just leap.

I’ve leapt INTO the beauty.

But I’m no super woman. I don’t know how to fly! Hell, I don’t even know how to parachute, or paraglide, or do one of those crazy wingsuit BASE jumps – which is exactly what this feels like.  [Read more…]


What is Inspiration?In Spire

In Spirare

Into Breathe

Breathe In

IN-spiration comes from withIN.

That breath of life sparks something inside of us to aspire to something more. Our heart lights up and we are turned ON when we are tuned IN.

But because we like to complicate things, we often find ourselves looking externally for inspiration.

We might find it in other people, in art, in nature…

Whenever we see it externally, we are seeing a direct reflection of the spark within us.

When we are not feeling inspired, the only solution is to go within. Through the breath, through meditation, through a conversation with the Universe, through stillness – it doesn’t matter how, but it’s always found within.

Sometimes we feel flat and we search and search and search. We can’t find it inside of us so we look externally at other people and things. But if only we sat still in nature and looked at the trees, the water, the sky – we’d see that nature does not seek external inspiration. It simply IS inspiration.

And since we are a product of Mother Nature, we simply ARE inspiration.

We are inspiring as long as we are breathing.

Literally, of course.

Figuratively, if we allow it.

How often do you allow it?



A written meditation to restore your mind/body/soul set point

Anna Shelley - custom meditationI’d love to share a meditation that I just took myself through while driving around, willing the toddler to sleep…

This is a written meditation that you can do as you read along…………..


I invite you to bring your attention to your breath.

You don’t have to sit still with your eyes closed for this. If you can, that’s fantastic, if not, then that’s amazing that you can multitask 🙂  [Read more…]

My new default position (Warning: Incredibly powerful)

Anna Shelley soul aligner intuitive coachI’m a little fucked up.

We’re ALL a little fucked up one way or another.

You already know this, and I’ll give you a solid example:

You know when your confidence takes a blow – your partner says something unloving, or you fail a test, or someone takes credit for your good work or whatever – and then you go into this hole where you just want to hide/die/cry [Read more…]

The power of Instant Manifestation

Anna Shelley - expanding your mind with meditationIf you allow your mind to open up to the possibilities in front of you, then you will be allowing yourself, and GIFTING yourself, the power of Instant Manifestation.

You’re already up with the law of attraction. You already KNOW that you can literally create anything you wish… BUT you have a HUGE sense of doubt as you struggle and struggle and struggle to create change in the key areas that you’re so desperate to see change.  [Read more…]
