A heartfelt truth from watching too many kids shows

It’s no secret that I am ALL for kids having screen time. In particular, I’m all for my night owl watching whateverthefuck is on, because sometimes it’s just too late for me to give AF.

I see so many kids music acts, and often the singers stand out to me. Not as great singers or entertainers, but because there’s just something WRONG with them.

Now before I go on – don’t get me wrong – there are some amazingly heartfelt talented people in this biz who are truly doing their soul work and fully expressing their soul on camera, and these people literally make me cry with their genius!  [Read more…]

Gratitude, Telepathy, Connection

Anna Shelley intuitive mindset coachI was lying in bed, cuddling my 2 year old to sleep, when I felt this immense wave of gratitude flow through me, from my heart to his.

I felt so blessed that I had him, so that he could teach me to only do what is important to me, to only do my soul work.

You see, he was never an easy kid. He’s never slept more than 4 hours. He clings to me like a koala. He’s challenged me in ways I never thought imaginable. I still find myself crying every week or so, unable to surrender to this.

And there I was, lying in bed with him, helping him to sleep, and I thanked the universe for this challenge and this blessing. That he has enforced me to only do what my soul truly desires.  [Read more…]

An Important Message from The Creative Muse

Anna Shelley - custom meditations, creative musing, artist/musician/magic weaverDavid Bowie has been bugging me lately. Literally knocking on the door of my consciousness, pushing his way in and standing up as I go deeper and deeper into my soul of creative expansion. He’s standing there saying Go Go Go Release Release Release More More More MORE. GO ALL IN and NEVER EVER STOP.

What does that MEAN?????

I mean, I GET the concept. I UNDERSTAND it’s about GOING ALL IN and UNLEASHING whatever cRazY creative genius is inside of my just BURSTING to BREAK FREE from me and be RELEASED into this world.

But still… I want some confirmation that everything I am doing is right. Like, really “right”. Correct. The proper way. Not wrong. You know? [Read more…]

You will never be perfect

You will never be perfectI’m so ANGRY ANGRY ANGRY and I can’t contain it ANY longer!!!! ARghghahghGHGHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I don’t even know WHY I am angry, but it’s suddenly spit out of me and into the house and the people and dinner and the BLOOD OF ANGER just keeps spilling OUT of me!!!!!!!

I want to stop it bleeding out, of exploding out, of erupting out, but I know that if I do, and also by trying to do it that I am simply trying to quash my soul, suppress my very essence.

Anger is bad. Being bad is bad. Not being perfect is bad.

I would LOVE to be perfect allthefuckingtime. But I’m just NOT1!!!! GARHHGHHGHHHHH

Goddamnit, make me perfect already!!!!  [Read more…]

Soulfuelment First – You gotta have it or you’ll die

SoulfuelmentJust so you know:

I can’t NOT do this stuff.

It’s in my bones. It’s in my DNA!

When my son was a very little baby, I saw a psychologist for post natal depression, or anxiety, or just plain old I Can’t Handle A Baby Who Doesn’t Sleep And Therefore Not Have A Single Second To Myself.

I told her I HAVE to create art. I HAVE to create stuff. I HAVE to work. I HAVE TO I HAVE TO I HAVE TO because IT’S WHO I AM goddamnit and if I can’t do this, then what is there left for me in this world?!  [Read more…]

Soulfuelment First

Become the Universe within youSoulfuelment.

It’s gotta come first.

Not even second.

But first.

Now I’m the first to say to put your kids first, if they’re not capable of fending for themselves, but EVEN WHILE you are busy creating functioning human beings (or dogs or cats or mothers or grandparents or rhubarb) you can be SIMULTANEOUSLY fueling your soul.

HOW? [Read more…]

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…]

Ego is NOT a dirty word (Let me explain the layers of your Self)

Ego is not a dirty word. I’m having a bit of an existential moment. Well, I have these moments pretty much daily. But this morning, whence I put Peppa Pig on repeat for my son, and meditated while simultaneously eating ice cream and waiting for my coffee to cool down enough to drink, I peeled back the layers of my human self.

Layer by layer.

Til I got to my soul.  [Read more…]
