❤️The Thoughts You Hold About Yourself❤️

What God Says on how we attract our physical life:

“The quality of what we attract determines the value we give ourselves.”

What does that mean?

If we want more meaningful and rich experiences in our lives; we hold those exact values in our selves.

The way we frame our thoughts about ourselves and the things we say to ourselves, as well as, the people we desire to have in our lives is the exact experience we will see in our physical life.

Our brain stem is created in a way that it will search out the fact based evidence to prove our thoughts to be correct. The brain stem is evidence based survival, by proving our cortex (thoughts-the thinking part of the brain) correct.

Do you tell yourself things that are love, compassion & encouragement?


Are they self-punishing thoughts of self-inflicted violence?

What types of thoughts stated above would you want the brain stem to seek out as to be true in your physical life?

God wants you to think those empowering thoughts of love, compassion and encouragement about yourself. The same ones He has for you.

You will soon notice the quality of what you attract will increase based off the value in your thoughts.

God Bless!

Please, Forgive Yourself!

What ever has occurred to this point can not be undone. Only acknowledging your part, making the adjustments and be that better person today.

Measurement to a past that is no longer tangible does not equate to a tangible reality of who you are today and who you will become tomorrow.

Every day is about being the better version of yourself to become that highest version of you. To do that; one must cut away in the heart all that is of the past. It only serves to weigh you down.

If you trust yourself the Universe will trust you!

The Universe is truly amazing and the power of connection and energy continues to blow my mind!

Once again this is another perfect example of the Universe working its Power and Magic and collectively gathering women who have the intention and purpose of living in truth and teaching others how to do the same by sharing their stories and their vulnerability!

When I was invited to be part of this book, I immediately knew intuitively the right publisher had found me and I trusted from the first email!

I had put the intention out in the universe about a year prior and it’s not by chance the opportunity showed up when it did!

I knew I would meet other authors and that they would be sharing their stories but I had know idea who!

When it was revealed who all my co-authors were I was blown away at the alignment the purpose and the power at all of these beautiful powerful women all uniquely different but energetically a strong similar vibration and intention!

My teaching to others is “Trusting your Intuition!”, and you can’t teach something until you have a strong practice with yourself first.

I am joyful at the trusting on this project! I don’t believe there are any coincidences and it is obvious and clear here, the energy behind this collaboration is for the greater good to inspire and raise the vibration of consciousness through sharing our own vulnerability and personal journeys!

Let your intuition always be in alignment with your truth and it will never guide you wrong!

With much love and gratitude,
Anne Marie

Old Soul/New Beginnings

Well everyone being a contributing author has certainly pushed me out of my comfort zone! 

I am wanting to be of service and welcome reaching clients in diverse places but promoting myself makes me nervous still.

Alot of us old souls have deep memories of this world being unsafe for us to be our blessed beautiful authentic selves, so we certainly have our work cut out for us!

I do believe this world is NOW ready and safe for us to share our magical beingnesses more than ever! I know the value of shining our lights brightly  and making it easier for our people to find us. I am thankful for the stretching this book is creating in me.  Im thankful for the opportunity to share myself even further than I am used to.

So please support these brave women myself included who want to share their amazing stories, gifts and lives. We hope our vulnerability speaks to your souls and helps you shine more truly, brightly and with way more truthfulness,  love, magic and fun!

Harvesting Happiness: The One Thing That I Know

This is the photo of one happy “farm boy!” And the one thing that I know is it wasn’t always the way he felt about the farm.  In fact, when I met Kim nineteen short years ago, he told me the story of leaving the farm (at the age of eighteen) to later join the Air Force because, “he couldn’t get out of there quick enough.”
How many of us share a similar story? A background that involves growing up in a household or situation that as soon as we graduated from high school, we were “out of there!”  The one thing that I know is I shared the same story with Kim.  I, too, left as soon as I was able to do it.  I didn’t join the armed forces, I took three jobs to support myself.
Each of us chose to get as far away as possible from our childhoods.  In Kim’s case, he had had enough of (in his words), “scooping frozen hog shit in the freezing cold of winter.”  And a father that was “very hard on him.” In my case, my family was being torn apart by a divorce.  There was a lot of fighting, crying, name calling, and years of dysfunctional behavior.  All I wanted was to create my own little family with the ideal husband, a cute little house, with a white picket fence.  The American dream.
A lot of life happened for the both of us between then and now.  And I’ll fast forward to the point! Something else we both shared was a strong feeling of discord with the relationship of one of our parents.  Kim’s was his father.  Mine was my mother.  In 2006, with Kim’s encouragement, I took the Heal Your Life® Workshop Leader Training.  In this week long intensive training, that I now have the honor and privilege to teach, I deeply explored the history with my mother.  With the support of the others that showed up for this experience, I bared my soul.  Spoke my truth.  Cried my eyes out.  Beat pillows to release all the years of pent up anger, frustration, and resentment.  And with all that being said, the two most powerful things that I heard (and acted upon) were the following:
  • If your parents are still alive and you wonder why they did something, ask them.
  • Everyone is always doing the very best they can with the awareness, knowledge, and skills they have.
In a very condensed version of my story, I used this process (along with forgiveness) to *heal the relationship with my mother.  When I saw that this is possible, naturally, I wanted the same for Kim and his father.
I’m not quite sure of what year it was exactly, but Jack Coffman, was very ill.  It was Christmas Eve, Kim and his father hadn’t spoken in quite a while.  With a bit of uneasiness, yet a willingness to make the first move, Kim boarded an airplane to the farm.  His home that he’d been away from for nearly twenty years. Imagine the surprise on everyone’s faces when he walked into the front door to wish his father a Merry Christmas.  A few years later, Jack Coffman, his stern, proud, burly father, left this planet.  Fortunately, after they’d shared a holiday, hug, and healing.
It’s harvest time.  The time of year when the farmers are reaping what they sowed.  Kim has returned to the farm to be side-by-side in the fields with his two brothers, just as his father did over sixty+ years ago. You can tell by the expression on his face (in the photo above) that his heart and spirit are incredibly happy!
The one thing that I know is anything is possible when we have the courage to take responsibility for our lives and situations.  If you could experience your own abundant harvest, what would it be and are you willing to do what it takes to get there?  I’m so happy and grateful that each of us were willing to take the necessary steps in healing our old hurts.  What we’ve learned together is truly “everyone is always doing the very best they can with the awareness, knowledge, and skills they have.”  Plus, forgiveness and compassion are important seeds for a rich harvest.

Embrace Your Fears and Break the Ties That Bind You

Fear happens to everyone, and it is no wonder with the t. v. news, the internet, job stress, family issues, and our lives seeming to speed up faster and faster. With the daily information overload we’re bombarded with, we are being collectively programmed to think that the boogie man is around every corner ready to jump out at us. A lot of us think that this onslaught doesn’t affect us very much, but in the long term it does. It affects our mental, emotional, spiritual, and also our physical health.

Fear is a natural physical response to danger. Our bodies react to our perception of danger by releasing the hormones adrenaline and cortisol from the adrenal glands. This speeds up our heart rate, slows digestion, shunts blood flow to major muscle groups, and over time can weaken the immune system.

Fortunately, there are ways to combat the onslaught of negativity and/or stress that causes our fear hormones to rage out of control.

Some of the ways to help keep fears under control are:

  1. Take deep controlled breaths
  2. Limit watching the news and buying into propaganda
  3. Meditation – Prayer -Affirmations
  4. Take walks outdoors – Yoga
  5. Aromatherapy
  6. Acupressure – Energy work

Listen to soft musicMy Personal StoryFor quite a few years, I wrestled with the idea that my life purpose was healing and teaching. I kept up a hectic pace in the corporate world (which I totally resented), and it was slowly sucking the life right out of me.I had this terrible fear that even though I was getting angelic messages and constant prodding’s from source, that I was not going to make it financially unless I worked full-time. I was also hearing “You won’t make it” messages from other well-meaning people in my life. This fear paralyzed me at times and kept me swimming in doubt and anxiety.

It wasn’t until I embraced fear and let it fuel the fire in my belly instead of stopping me in my tracts, that I learned that fear can also be your ally. Now, I have a part-time job that I enjoy and the time and energy to do what I feel called to do. At some point fear became the fuel that pushed me out of my comfort zone and into having faith that god will provide. I am not saying that I don’t ever go into fear, because I do, but I don’t live there anymore.

Fear has been a friend to me at times, and other times a foe, but all of my personal experiences with fear have taught me life lessons that I am eternally grateful for.

Don’t let fear shut you down, let it be the catalyst that wakes you up and fuels your fire!

The Joy of Being Proven Wrong

This was originally published on The Blog of A Lighter Soul on July 21, 2015.

I do not enjoy being wrong. I may have gotten more graceful with situations that show me the error of my ways (in one way or another) but I still don’t like it. My pride gets wounded every time it happens. Hi, I’m Angela. And I’m a human being.

Anyway, this whole pride / ego / pride thing can lay me out flat occasionally. But sometimes, after the initial feeling of irritation passes, I am grateful to be wrong. So incredibly grateful.

I believed at the beginning of this year, that I would take some risks and just see what happened. I wasn’t expecting earth shattering, paradigm shifting, what in the world is going on kind of events. I just figured I’d put myself out there and see what happens.

I didn’t think it would be revolutionary.

I didn’t think it would be indescribable.

I didn’t think it would be extraordinary.

But I was wrong.

This has been a year of taking risks so far. I’ve traveled to cities I didn’t know (some on a whim, some with a little bit of planning). I’ve spoken to people about goals and dreams that I was previously keeping to myself. I told a guy I thought he was pretty cute. I’ve met new people and instead of running for cover at the first conversation break, I stayed put and kept asking questions. I’ve tried new foods, new music, new restaurants, new attitudes and new routines.

Some of the risks have been little. Like trying a scallop in spite of a pretty serious aversion to seafood… and in case you’re wondering, no I didn’t like it. Some of the risks have been a bit bigger like when I did a zip line course in spite of a fear of heights. Some of the risks have resulted in mental and emotional breakthroughs like when I drove solo from Cleveland to Boston to watch my younger brother cross off a bucket list item when he crossed the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

I’ve met new people. And let others go.

I’ve listened more than I’ve talked.

I’ve given people forgiveness even when my heart was screaming that I had every right to stay angry for just a little while longer.

I’ve tried new adventures and I’m actively looking for more.

I’ve given love and relationships another chance even though I was smarting from heartbreak and confusion.

I’ve put my toe in the water. Then I came back for more.

Every time, I told myself at one point or another no, it’s not going to happen. No, you can’t do that. No, it’s too much. No, this is crazy.

No, I am afraid.

Bravery isn’t the absence of fear. It is moving forward even when fear is holding your hand. 

Times like these I’m eternally grateful that I’m wrong. And I’m basking in my wrongness.

How have you been happily proven wrong lately?
