LIVE WELL AS YOUR TRUE SELF WITH GOAL SETTING[How to set meaningful goals and follow through with them]

Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.
-Tony Robbins

CONTEXT

In the fast-paced rhythm of life, the quest to live authentically and embrace your True Self is often accompanied by the need for purposeful goals aligned with who you truly are and what truly matters to you.

Setting and achieving meaningful goals becomes a guiding light, illuminating the steps you need to take on your path toward a life well-lived.
This week, we’ll explore how intentional goal setting can not only shape your aspirations but also lay the foundation for living authentically, fostering a profound sense of well-being.

The 3 STEPS

Authentic Alignment: Set goals that resonate with your True Self. Align your goals with your purpose, values, and overarching vision. Make each goal a genuine reflection of your true identity and greatest fulfillment.

Vibration Transformation: Elevate your goal-setting process with vibrational alignment. Engage in daily practices that raise your energy, such as visualizing yourself attaining your goals, writing and speaking positive affirmations aligned with your goals and getting into the feeling state that your goals evoke emotionally. Create a vibrational match between your goals and your inner self.

Conscious Creation: Consciously shape your future through intentional goal setting. Make a list of the actual actions you need to take to accomplish your goals. Take one small action step every day that is aligned with each of your goals. Approach goal setting as a conscious creation of the life you envision.

CLOSING THOUGHTS

A firm commitment to your True Self is always better than a half-hearted agreement that goes against your authenticity.
Setting meaningful goals is a key to living well as your True Self.
I am holding the vision that you follow through with your goals in a way that resonates deeply with who you truly are and what you know in your heart you are capable of creating.

2024 is the year of living authentically and achieving goals that align with your True Self.

I love you and I support you.

Until next week,
🤍Anne

THE ESALEN INSTITUTE – AUTHENTIC ALIGNMENT: January 22-26, 2024

Authentic Alignment: Creating an Authentic Life of Purpose, Value, and Vision

January 22–26, 2024


THE ESALEN INSTITUTE
AUTHENTIC ALIGNMENT: CREATING AN AUTHENTIC LIFE OF PURPOSE, VALUE, AND VISION
Weekend of January 22–26, 2024
REGISTER HERE

“Who am I?” “Why am I here?” “What is important to me?”

Asking yourself these questions will activate your inner authenticity and allow you to move forward and live your life in alignment with your truest self. The answers to these questions will help you navigate life’s journey with direction, motivation, and inspiration. Perhaps the greatest regret of the dying is that they lacked the courage to live a life true to themselves.

In this workshop, you will reconnect with your authentic self through a series of exercises — such as guided meditation, self-inquiry, journaling, Emotional Freedom Technique (also known as tapping) — and one-on-one and group sharing and embodiment practices. This curated process is designed to allow you space to get clear about:

  • Your purpose
  • Your core values
  • Your message
  • Your big vision

With that clarity, you can create your manifesto, a written statement declaring who you truly are. Let that sink in: We will first uncover this hidden self, and then, together, we will manifest this being into reality.

Together, we will explore:

  • Guided meditation to calm the mind and tap into your inner guidance and higher potential.
  • Self-inquiry to explore the powerful questions that connect with your true self and what matters most to you.
  • Journaling with a focus on cognitive processing to reduce stress, improve memory, boost mood, regulate emotions, increase physical vitality, and improve relationships.
  • EFT tapping to clear subconscious blocks and rewire your subconscious mind.

Discover practices to connect and practical tools to reprogram your subconscious mind and heal your connection with your truest, deepest, highest self. You will also learn to apply these insights for authentic interactions with others. As you deepen the embodiment of your native self, you’ll experience the freedom of simply being you. This is one of the greatest victories possible: living a courageous life true to yourself — with no regrets.

Please bring a journal and pen to every session.

CONSCIOUS CREATION at THE ESALEN INSTITUTE: August 11-13, 2023

CONSCIOUS CREATION at THE ESALEN INSTITUTE: August 11-13, 2023

You feel a call — destiny calling you to create something amazing because you are a creator.

What is it that you truly want to create, manifest, and activate in your life right now? What is the work you have been avoiding and procrastinating doing? What is your vision for your health, home, relationships, vocation, offerings, finances, creativity, travel, spiritual life, and higher potential? You know the time is now. Whatever you want to create is possible.

You have to get clear about your vision. You need to move out of your comfort zone and into your courage zone. You need to make a plan. By transforming the vibration of your body, mind, heart, and spirit, you can find the deep fulfillment and satisfaction that comes from accomplishing goals and aligning with your greater potential and your True Self.

It’s a lot easier to be a creator when you are in the presence of other creators. This powerful and practical program will provide the community you need to craft your vision. Your dream should not remain a dream. It is your time to pull it into your reality. Conscious Creation will help you manifest your Big Vision for your life.

In this workshop, we will focus on foundational transformations through guided meditations and visualizations, empowerment conversations, writing exercises, and specific exercises, such as Emotional Freedom Technique (also known as Tapping) combined with High Performance Coaching and down to Earth practical planning. This is your opportunity to allow your beliefs, thoughts, and feelings to inspire you to speak the words and take the actions necessary to become the living embodiment of your visions.

TRUE SELF MASTERY READINGS

TRUE SELF MASTERY READINGS are a blend of Human Design, The Gene Keys and the North and South Nodes of Astrology.

These are all incredible systems of wisdom for gaining greater insight into:

*Your Soul’s higher purpose

*Your optimal work in the world

*Accessing greater health and energy

*Using challenges to help you grow and evolve

*Being of the greatest service possible to yourself and others

*How to make wise decisions based on who you truly are and what is most important to you

*What your Soul has already mastered and wants/needs to master now

You will also receive deep insights about how to move out of operating from your shadow (and we all have a shadow side), how to operate more deeply from your greatest gifts and how to activate your innate super powers so that you can navigate through your inner and outer life with more ease, grace and mastery.

You are a unique and one of a kind individual.

Your TRUE SELF MASTERY READING will help you clear everything that you have taken on that is not aligned with who you truly are and why you are truly here so that you can embody your truest, deepest and highest Self and love and support others in doing the same.

Readings happen on Zoom and are recorded and sent to you so that you can continue to listen to it as often as you wish.

Clients tell me that it feels like these readings are like receiving the owner’s manual for their life that they wished they had received at their birth.

Many clients are also giving them as gifts to their loved ones and for their children, spouses and family members.

A 60 minute reading that gives you the foundations of your design and coaching for how to integrate your reading’s guidance in specific ways in your life:

Here is what people are saying about their True Self Mastery Reading:

OH MY GOD!!! Thank you, thank you thank you!
It took me a few days to send this to you because I wanted to listen to my reading twice, taking notes and processing it before giving you any feedback.
There is sooooo much in this reading for myself to learn and it helped me gain so much understanding about who I really am and what  is my greater calling in life.
I connected so deeply to it and had so many revelations and great surprises during this reading that I can’t express by mail my true gratitude for this magical and mystical experience.
Thank you! I love you!
-T.M.
🤍
I have savored my TRUE SELF MASTERY READING over the course of time.
So now that I have come to it’s delicious ending I have to write you immediately and thank you with all my heart for this insightful peek into all that is possible.
I recognized so many aspects of myself in the reading.
It really made me realize that some of things that have been so compelling are actually things that you see ordained in my chart.
It gave me a true sense of being known and encouraged on my path.
Just hearing your beautiful voice giving me the information was part of the loving experience.
Thank you! Thank you!
-D.C.
🤍
It is healing just to be held in the loving attention of another.
In this way, receiving a True Self Mastery reading from Anne was not only informative, confirming and affirming, it was much needed healing.
The time, care and thorough intelligent investigation of my unique design that Anne offered was not only illuminating, it was empowering and life changing.
When I heard the comprehensive recording that Anne offered I felt held in loving, compassionate attention and I continue to use it to refer to not only as a resource as I continue my self exploration and self discovery, but as a touchstone for remembering I am loved and I have a purpose for my life.
The reading helped me see what is unique about me and better understand where I might run into resistance in my life and how I might better focus my energy and efforts.
I found this to be hugely beneficial in informing my life focus.
It was like receiving the instruction manual for my unique human instrument that I never had.
Empowered by my reading I am able to move forward in my life with much more intelligence and intention with far less effort and much more ease and grace.
I am deeply grateful for the extensive time, care, profound wisdom and intelligence that Anne offers in her work with me.
Absolutely amazing!
-Michael Purcell
That is the best money I have ever spent in my life!
Your ability to call forth the truth and assist and guide me towards my most authentic path is astounding.
I have never felt so understood, so celebrated and so clear.
I highly recommend your services for anyone seeking their higher truth who are looking to find that which their Soul is truly here to experience and fulfill.
She is absolutely amazing and is worth every minute!
-J.S
The True Self Mastery reading Anne did for me is a powerful tool for understanding my present and planning my future.
The insight she shared offered me clarity and confidence to be myself in all aspects of my life.
-S.G.

2020 CONSCIOUS COMPLETIONS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On 12.30.20 I facilitated a free online workshop called THE CONSCIOUS COMPLETION.

One participant, Helena who joined THE CONSCIOUS COMPLETION shared:
“Great reflections in this workshop! Everybody should see the replay and go through the process! I feel cleansed and lighter and happy to have turned the challenges of 2020 into superpowers! “
Here are a few of my takeaways from the workshop, 2020 and how I have/am consciously completing 2020:
My biggest challenge of the year: Discovering that corruption was at play in some relationships with people/places/things that I had been committed to for 22 years and I was not being treated or given the same opportunities that others were being given. It was one of those “Is this really happening?” moments. (I think a lot of people faced this challenge this year).
What did I learn from my biggest challenge? That sometimes the best thing to do in the face of corruption is to stop trying to change it, resign, and put my energy where I can actually make a positive difference in the world aligned with my Purpose, Values and Big Vision.
What gift did I use to transform the challenge into a superpower? SELF WORTH
How have I applied that big lesson to my life? By pivoting my philanthropy to donate an hour a week of my time to giving free one on one coaching to an inspirational BIPOC woman and do my part to transform corruption in my country of origin.
How has the biggest challenge that I faced in 2020 motivated me to be of greater service on the planet? More than ever (sadly) in a world where corruption is a fact of life, I am SO motivated to love, support, teach and coach those I serve in being radically authentic and trustworthy leaders, entrepreneurs, teachers, healers and light workers.
THIS is the power of CONSCIOUSLY COMPLETING 2020.
I love and support you in taking time today to go through the process that I lead everyone through yesterday.
