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…]

Where do you draw the line?

Where is the line between looking after others and looking after ourselves?The other day I hosted my free virtual hangout, Coffee with Anna, and we pondered some interesting questions…

I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say that we all wish to be compassionate and kind, and at the same time we want to look after ourselves so that we feel good within ourselves.

But think about this…

Where is the line between being compassionate and being a push over? [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…]

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…]

A Super Quick Trick To Centre Yourself

picsart_10-16-02-44-13Close your eyes. (OK, maybe read this first, then close your eyes.)

Take a big breath.

Trace a line from the middle of your forehead down through your belly button to in between your feet.

This is your midline. Your centre. Your home.  [Read more…]

The shit storm we have to have

Anna Shelley quoteI was tapping into my soul, wondering how I could transcend anger, rage, boiling point, unhappiness, sadness, grief etc… but…

The soul doesn’t want to do this.

The soul wants to activate the whole of the human experience.  [Read more…]

My meditation/channeling/journal combo for inner peace, intuitive insights, and personal growth… Part II – Channeling

Anna Shelley - Aligning your mind with your soulOk so this is where I find it harder to explain in writing what I do here, so first I recommend you take a look at Part I on meditation, if you haven’t already…..

Now I created a course ages ago on how to channel your higher self. I’ve since retired that course (but do let me know if you’re interested, and I can sneak you in) because it’s not in 100% alignment with my main focus right now.

But I want to share with you what it is and how I do it.  [Read more…]

My meditation/channeling/journal combo for inner peace, intuitive insights, and personal growth… Part I – Meditation

Anna Shelley - Soul AlignerI didn’t know I was going to share all this because honestly, I feel it’s such a big thing to explain. But at the same time it’s so bloody simple.

It’s the kind of thing you know you should do on a regular basis, but when things are good you forget about it. But if you’re really switched on, you’ll remember it when you most need it, and then if you put it into practice you suddenly feel that incredible lightness of being, and you just KNOW you’re on the right path.  [Read more…]

I don’t like the term “self care”, but…

Anna Shelley : Aligning your mind with your soulDo you factor self care into your day?

Self care is a term I see bandied about, and honestly, it lost its meaning on me for a while there.

But I’ve come to the conclusion that if you make self care a part of your JOB then you’re onto a good thing.

When you make it a part of your every day life to meditate, to tune in to your intuition, to take a few moments to just BREATHE, then you’re setting yourself up for success.

I’ll be honest here. I let the self care thing drop for a while…  [Read more…]
