Hello to all you beautiful souls!
Before I tell you a little about myself, I want to ask you a few questions?
Have you experienced self-hatred, self-doubt, shame or guilt?
Do you believe that you are unworthy of experiencing love or happiness?
Have you felt so depressed, anxious and alone, that at times, it felt too much to go on?
Have you felt the immense pressures of society, to fit into the mould of who you “should be” as a mother, a son/daughter, a partner, or a friend etc.
Have you felt like you are giving constantly to others and not feeling appreciated for your efforts?
Have you ever felt like you were destined to live a life more fulfilled than the one you are currently existing in, but feel resigned to the fact that nothing can change?
I could go on, but these are just some of the beliefs and fears I have struggled with my whole life and they have actually stopped me from living the life I truly desired.
Does any of this sound familiar to you?
Well…. I’m here to tell you that you absolutely do have the power to change your life! I am a walking billboard for this! We don’t really know how powerful we are until we start taking responsibility for ourselves and understand that we have the absolute power to choose how we live our life.
“No one else is responsible for your happiness, but you!”
My name is Annalie, I am a blessed mother of two gorgeous children, my angels Mikaylah and Damian, and a devoted partner in crime to the love of my life, my Twin Flame, Roman.
I was born in the Philippines and immigrated to Australia when I was 2 with my mother and my step-father so pretty much grew up in Australia. I have an older step-brother, and two younger half-brothers. After my parents divorced I moved out of home at the age of 16. This forced me to grow up very fast! I had my first child at 21 years of age. My life has not been, by any stretch of the imagination, smooth sailing or conventional. I have had my fair share of challenges and setbacks, but my life has certainly helped me grow and has been essential to getting me to where I am today.
I look back over my life practices with compassion and see all the dots connecting. Had it not been for these experiences, challenges and people, I would not be the person I am today, and have the blessings I am so grateful for in my life or be on this mission to help others.
It took a crisis for me to finally STOP and ask myself some very important questions….
• Am I happy?
• Do I know who I am?
• Do I know what I want?
• How do I want to live the rest of my life?
• What example do I want to set for my children?
Then it hit me…..I had always run away from the idea I would follow in my parent's footsteps, yet somehow I found myself replaying their story. Not able to escape the generational pattern that seemed to plague the women in my family. I had to dig deep to find the courage to choose ME.
This did not come naturally and it was not easy, it also took a REALLY long time. I had to love myself more than the idea that I had an obligation to my children, to keep their family together, even if it meant sacrificing my happiness. Staying in a dysfunctional relationship for the sake of the children was the very thing I vowed never to do. I had gone through that experience with my parents and it affected me greatly. I began to gain an understanding, first hand, of why it was so hard for my parents to let go. It also revealed to me how important it was for me to be an example for my children.
If I became conscious of trying to avoid the mistakes my parents made, yet somehow still ended up in their shoes, what hope would my children have of living a life any different? This meant I would have to live the life I wanted for my children and embody the person I hope they would become. In no circumstances would I ever want them to sacrifice their happiness for another. I wanted the cycle to STOP with me.
So I dove into my inner world to explore and I found…
“You only allow what you are already doing to yourself”
The harsh and very sad truth hit me...I must have really hated myself…So I decided to change that reality and create a new one. My focus became my connection/relationship to myself. If I couldn’t learn to love and accept myself, how could anyone love and accept me?
So I began a quest to immerse myself in everything I could, self-help books, courses, audios, and spiritual teachings, to become a better version of me. When I put into practice the very things I was learning, I felt awakened to a whole new perspective!
The thought patterns we choose, shape the way we experience our life. There are so many things that we can learn from our life experiences, we just need to find the lessons.

After 10 months of solitude, one fateful night 5 years ago, out of nowhere, I manifested the connection/relationship of my dreams and met Roman! I really didn’t know what hit me! Unbeknownst to me, I had met my Twin Flame, literally the other half of my soul (more on this in: About Roman & Annalie)
This meeting activiated the union within and has accelerated my mental, emotional and spiritual growth. I have learnt so much more about myself in this union than I ever did before I met Roman (and I am still learning) and for that I am eternally grateful.
The effects of my life inspired my passion and this work. To FEEL the difference of how I was previously living and experiencing life to how I am currently living and experiencing it now, are two completely opposite ends of the spectrum. I unleashed the powerful lesson of forgiveness and compassion. I was able to turn my pain into courage and wisdom.
I don’t have all the answers and I don’t have everything "under control." Who does? I am just doing the best I can with what I know. The things I have learnt along the way (I am constantly learning something new everyday) have enabled me to live more freely in this insane world!
I am just like you! I battle demons everyday but through my truth, my personal experiences and my own transformation and journey (back to my heart) my intention and hope is to help support you on your inner journey to creating a richer truer life. To help guide and empower yourself to believe in YOU, to LOVE YOU unconditionally, so you can express who you are fully in this world and not be ashamed or afraid of the beautiful unique soul that is you! My commitment to you and to me, is to practice what I preach. Being an example of what I want for others is to be that myself.
“Lead by example. Practice what you preach or don’t preach at all.
Do the walk not talk the talk. You are what you do, not what you say. Inspire, challenge and encourage people to their best, by doing YOUR best.”
It makes my heart sing to witness people choosing themselves in life! It is an amazing gift to give yourself and to others. So…What are you waiting for?
