Messages from the Universe


Sometimes, things, people and opportunities come along that are hang on to your seat, not to be missed kinda’ moments. They can be delivered by an unexpected party invitation, a free trip to an exotic location, a coffee date with a stranger that turns you in to best soul friends, or maybe, just maybe, it’s a note delivered in to your inbox daily by the big ole’ universe.
Months and months ago I signed up to receive daily notes from the universe (divinely inspired by a remarkable man called Mike Dooley). 
Picture this; you have had a crazy day. You might be rushed, you might be stressed, you might be highly strung. Hey, you might even be where I hope you to be which is blissed out, relaxed, happy – you know, the good stuff. Then your inbox ‘pings’ and in there, you have a note from the universe itself. You don’t know how it knew, and you don’t care either, but every day, it seems to deliver the exact right words, that you needed as the exact sign, at the right time in the right moment.


I cherish the emails I receive and it’s not unusual for a texting/phone call frenzy to ensue with my bestie PK after proclaiming HOW did they universe know that we needed to hear that – for different reasons, but it has the same impact.
The notes are exceedingly divine, absolutely necessary and just a delicious boost to any day. In the spirit of sharing all things extraordinary and soulfully good – Life is just one extraordinary gift ready to be unwrapped everyday, and life to me isn’t life at all without sharing. Some of you may already receive them (high five) but wouldn’t you agree, that if one more person was gifted the messages from the universe then this post is worth it.

If you aren’t already signed up and would love to, go here. If you are, again, high five, and for BOTH newbies, and oldies here are just a few of my favourite ‘notes’ so far….

Now be honest, Anna, and think of all your dreams that have already come true. 

A lot, right? Tons. Actually, you’re a bit of a legend here already. 

Now, do you remember how before all the big ones came true, when you were pushing, reaching, and striving; hoping, wishing, and praying; you’d think to yourself, “then I’ll be freer… then I’ll rock… then I’ll know all things are possible… how happy I will be!”?

Let’s keep those promises,
    The Universe

Anna, avoid gray areas. 

There, the illusion of safety is guarded by the lies of “maybe,” “sometime,” and “I don’t know.” There is a truth. There is a way. Life is absolute, and its principles exacting. If you put it out “there,” it has to come back. Ask, and it must be revealed. 

Think, speak, and move with your desires, and nothing will ever be the same. 

Tallyho,
    The Universe

Anna, to make hard tasks easy, mountains molehills, and challenges simple, you can opt for one of two paths. You can be still, wait for guidance, and expect spontaneous enlightenment. 

Or you can just roll up your sleeves and get busy doing what you can, with what you’ve got, from where you are. 

May I suggest the latter? It’s usually much faster. And it makes you a bloomin’ lightening rod for divine guidance and spontaneous enlightenment. 

Hi-ho, 
    The Universe

+++

Everything in your life, right now, Anna, is awesome. Everything is in its right place, under grace, and whether or not this makes perfect sense yet, one day it will. And the time swiftly approaches when you’ll be exceedingly grateful for all that has brought you to this day and contributed to who you’ve become, because it is exactly that person who is now poised to live as you have always dreamed you would one day live. 

Happy Friday, 
    The Universe

+++

Dearest Anna, I was about to wish that your every dream come true. That you find yourself surrounded by friends, laughter, and good times. I almost wished that your every cup runneth over financially, romantically, spiritually, and creatively. That good health be your faithful companion, peace your guarded ally, and love your perpetual guide. When suddenly, it dawned on me that as an infinite, powerful, fun-loving gladiator of the Universe, with eternity before you and the power of your thoughts to help shape it… it’s you Anna Ogilvie, who will be granting wishes this year. 

I’d like peace on earth, please –

Sense of Place. Sense of Worth.

A lot of things pop in to my inbox ever since I became my own boss just because I decided to get healthy. Beautiful updates from clients who have regained their health, incredible thank you’s from mums’ who now earn an income from home and don’t need to go back to work and just random bits of hello’s or love. A very special one arrived in my inbox last week though that deserved my undivided attention – and got it. 
A video from a very wise and great guy friend Josh, who had seen this video on YouTube and thought I would enjoy it. He was correct. The beautiful women presenting, and one of my new shero’s comes in the form of Australasia’s leading nutritional biochemist Dr Libby Weaver. 

Caring. Fierce. Incredibly Intellectual & touching on almost every subject that is very dear to my heart and why I have the vision I have Dr Weaver has it all. The video I am sharing to me is a must watch. So you need to open your diary, find 18 minutes, and settle in with a cup of coffee or peppermint tea – and watch what this divine woman has to say.

She wants us women to be more kind to ourselves – with what we eat, drink, say and think and I couldn’t agree with her more.  One of the most straight to the heart pieces was what she said about not yet being brave enough to be a mother .. it had me in tears in my lady lair as if I am bold enough to say it, it’s my fear as well. 
“I’m not brave enough to be a mother. Because I can’t imagine, being the mother that I would want to be, whilst still doing my mission in this world”

Any strong, intelligent, incredible woman who can get on stage and be that raw and honest has my full attention and respect 
As I linked in my above opening statement. I get to be my own boss now, and it all came about by just wanting to be more healthy, from being clean on the inside, and that has led me to what is my multiple six figure business today that I achieved in 1 year. It was also from that, my fiancé (who now also does the business with me) & I developed our own vision and something we are so passionate about; 



I’m excited to be living in a world where we as women CAN have it all and I am excited about being part of the generation to do just that. We don’t have to not be brave enough to be mothers to not live out our other missions and we can get paid to live our purpose – whatever that may be. And THAT is what I help women do all over the world today. 
You’re always welcome to be a part of that vision too – especially if what Dr Weaver said in the video resonated with you too on any level. It IS time to start taking better care of our health, the way we speak to ourselves, what we put in our bodies and how we perceive ourselves. 

I want to leave you with some of my other favourite pieces of divine wisdom I got from Dr Weaver in that video and would love to hear your own in the comments below. 
My fav quotes from Dr Weaver + Tedx Video 

“When you see the human body mapped out like I have, you see the absolute miracle that we are”


“If you knew who you truly are, you would be in awe of yourself”


“If you don’t feel like you are enough, you don’t feel like you have enough, so you live your life in the pursuit of having and gaining more and more”


“The way I was living was unsustainable. So even with all of my knowledge, and all of my rituals, I still fell in to the trap, of trying to please every single human in my realm. & wanting them to like me.”


“Rushing Womens Syndrome” – it’s time to put our oxygen masks on first, before we can be of service to others.” 


“A little girl spinning around singing, knows she is precious, and we were all born with that knowing. She lives every moment from that place, and we were all born with that knowing. but we loose it.”


“When on earth did it enter our psychology that we need to sacrifice our health to make everybody else happy.”

Your turn; What resonated most with you in the video? Have YOU been a woman that hasn’t been taking good enough care of herself? Well beautiful, today is the day to start.

October’s Mind + Body Total Makeover .. + FREE Gift

When I sat to start writing this post I thought words would flow, that words would pour out of me and I didn’t need to give it much thought as I knew exactly what I wanted to say and share. But this is the funny thing when you’ve had a big life change, it’s hard to even know where to begin. Why? Because when I look back on my life the past 6 months, to say it has been transformative and life changing would be an understatement – and that makes me emotional in the best way even writing that. 
So I decided, to just write from the heart and start at the beginning. So here goes. 
I started this blog in May 2011 because I was ready for the next big life journey I had started on, I knew I was on the precipice of some huge change and was ready to start the next chapter of my life and so was born this space where I have shared that journey for over 2 years now. 
Back then, I was almost (but not quite) on top of debilitating anxiety that I refused to be medicated for. I was trying to find natural ways to beat my adult acne that flared out of nowhere (and stayed with me for over 18 months) and I had lost 17kg and felt I had found myself and was ready to let my me out. I was turning to self love and confidence and wanted to stay on this positive life course and change my life even further. 
So I did. I started yoga. Morgs & I continued to eat incredibly, incredibly clean. I started journalling, blogging, writing and releasing and sharing stories and my inner thoughts to connect with similar minded peopled – and I did. I went on a yoga journey to bali by myself to do even more self discovery. I threw out my chemical shit storm in a bottle moisteriers and turned to coconut oil. I started dry body brushing, meditating and grounding. I read mind, body and spirit book after book after book. I delved in to a deeper spiritual connection of love and light and utilised amazing life coaches who did a lot of mind shift stuff with me. 
In every way, shape and form, I was a loud and proud wellness junkie.
And I still am. 
Here was the thing though – doing all of that, the living clean, eating clean, the loving, the looking after my body as well as I could (not going over the top but still being super conscious), reading amazing books, and being a huge warrior of wellness – there was still a lot ‘off’ for me. & yes, what I’m about to share is personal, and big and daunting for someone who has blogged about Wellness and lifestyle for 2 years, but I know there are so many others out there quietly experiencing the same … 
+ I was still getting really, reallyyyyy bad bloating. 
+ My adult acne was flaring up without any warning – although break outs were MUCH more manageable, they were there none the less. 
+ My energy was zapped more times than not. I was still tired (& no juice cleanse or organic raw diet would have me leaping out of bed, and not reaching for the 3pm coffee hit) 
+ I unfortunately, would occasionally, feel my anxiety creeping up. No full blown panic attacks thank god, but bad enough for me to have to get on all 4’s and try to breath my way out of them whilst Morgs had to sit and watch on upset I still had to struggle with them telling me it was ok and just to breathe and that I’d be ok (I actually get quite emotional writing that and anyone that’s suffered with bad anxiety before would understand.
+ I was constipated. Frustratingly – because my diet was great. Enough fruits/veggies/vitamins/fibre etc.
+ My moods would dip – I was never unhappy, ever, but if I had to be really honest with myself, ok no, if Morgs was the one writing this he would call them my ‘bitch moods’ – stress would get the better of me, a bad day at work or crazy work load would see me coming home grumpy or ‘off’ …
+ My sleep wasn’t perfect .. I slept, don’t get me wrong, and I didn’t even know I didn’t sleep that well until I slept amazingly. But I was a super light sleeper – so Morgs rolling over would wake me up and the slightest noise would too. 
+ I had cravings that I more often than not gave in to (because I was skinny so felt I could); namely, I’m talking chocolate. Organic or not, eating too much a day is not in fact good for you as much as we’d like to tell ourselves. 
+ I had little pockets of cellulite that wouldn’t freaking go and coming from a girl who busted her ass in the gym 5 days a week, ate clean and drank a LOT of water (alkaline of course) it was frustrating to say the least.
As you can see, although life was GREAT, it truly was, there were these signs, little issues in my body which I knew weren’t normal, I KNEW I could have the BEST of health and I knew deep down I needed a detox. A proper detox. I.e. a nutrient rich, scientifically formulated, vitamin dense, good ole’ clean out. 
So off I set. 
As with all beautiful ‘meant to be’s I was aligned with a girl who did nutritional cleansing. I didn’t even need to hear much, I was willing to give anything healthy a go – I didn’t want to go on a diarrethtic tea that was flooding the market or a one off cleanse thing, I wanted a lifestyle change so I said … YES to a nutritional cleansing program and the rest as they say is history. 
Remember this post? 
That was 4 months ago now, and I have incorporated the cleansing and nutrients in to my day for 6 months and I have never, ever, ever felt as amazing and healthy as I do now. All the niggles I had holding on have since well and truly left my life. Bloating and cellulite? Gone. Stress levels and anxiety – completely managed with ease. I control my cravings now they don’t control me. My energy? Unmatched. Mine & Morgs sleep is the best it’s ever been in our lives (and yes, after seeing me on the products for just 3 days Morgs started on it too). My skin? As clear as it has EVER been and let’s just say, the toilet and I now have a fantastic relationship. Not only that, as a secondary bonus I lost 3kg (that is all I needed to loose) and 12cm off my body … I was literally blown away at seeing my body transform on the outside whilst my insides were balancing.
They’re not the only transformational changes that have occured in my life though, along the way, I also made myself financially free. It took 4 months to match my full time income because of the companies compensation plan and retire from the 9-5 and my new days are now filled with helping others do the same. Get the healthiest they’ve ever been, and free themselves financially. 
What has kept my passion alive for what I do now is the vision of the nutritional cleansing company “to create the healthiest and wealthiest people on the planet” – they believe true wellness doesn’t stop at body and mind – it extends to financial freedom. Wellness & health – eating organic, juicing, amazingly natural and good nutrients and vitamins should never only be for those who can afford it. 
The Deal … 
So here is what I want to do for YOU for October. For ONE week, I am doing a HUGE blitz week starting October 7th. To help you transform your own life – from a total health re-haul, to then a financial one also if you so choose it to be. Is there something ‘off’ in your life that you are ready to say goodbye too? Low energy? Extra kgs? Bloating? Shit sleep? I want to help. You SO don’t have to accept the status quo in life. Being tired isn’t normal. Being bloated isn’t normal. Having a boss who says no to annual leave doesn’t have to be part of your life. Normal to me now is living a life of my own ideal days. No work. Travelling when I want, with who I want. Setting my own income and earning that. Being healthy. Happy. Financially free – & helping my team do the same. It’s available to anyone and I want to help you find the health and financial freedom I have. 

If you come aboard the Nutritional Cleansing lifestyle during next week – October 7th to October 13th, for the first 20 people, you will also receive free a Wellness Indulgence Package including what is pictured above. 
+ C Coconut Water
+ Dry Body Brush 
+ Organic Soap 
+ Coconut Oil 
+ Kiki K quote card and; 
+ An ebook I have written on ‘Ultimate guide to mind wellness’ – how to set big shiny goals..but really achieve them. 
Email me at anna.ogilvie@hotmail.com if you want to learn more about how to secure being one of the 20 and ask for more information.

Testimonials … 

Leanne Thorpe - Beautiful mother, friend & wife & Business owner

I started Isagenix at the end of April when my beautiful friend Anna invited me to take part in a "shower on the inside". I was weighing in at 96.1kg and knew that I had to do something to improve my health and lose some weight. I am the mother of 2 beautiful children and I wanted to be able to run around at the park and play with them as well as become a healthy role model for them to be proud of. I have tried many "diets" and fads over the 6 years since having my first child and to be fair some would work, but I never seen lasting results which of course resulted in me rebounding and being lovingly nicknamed the Kirsty Alley of my family. Isagenix was by far the best thing I have ever done for my body. Within days I was bouncing out of bed, my moods had improved dramatically and I had boundless energy and motivation to get back into my exercise. Within the first 30 days I had lost 8kg and 63.5cm from across my body - there was no stopping me from there! I have been on the products since April and have now lost 19.6kg and 120cm from across my body, the best part is, being able to share this amazing gift with my family and friends to help them with their own health and wellness goals. I love this system it's so easy to use and so easy to share because it really works!

Belinda Radalj - Raw Vegan Foodie, Dog Lover & self declared food connoisseur 

I have been on a long, 10 year journey to find my health and wellness. I started with the simple step of removing additives & preservatives from my diet, & ended up living a mostly raw, vegan lifestyle. But I still had niggling physical & mental health issues. Isagenix has been the missing puzzle piece for me. I feel so blessed to have been given this gift of health and financial freedom.
Brodie Cotter - Artist, Surfer, Lover of life 
My wellness journey began after struggling with debilitating digestive problems I suffered as a result of a parasite I caught overseas.  Not only was this uncomfortable, it very nearly killed me, twice.  As a result I was left feeling tired, sore, lost and then gain more weight and was generally unhealthy.  I also suffered terrible anxiety that at times seemed to paralyse me.  On my return home I began to tackle each issue head on one by one all the while attempting what I was told was impossible - swimming to Rottnest before I turned 30 with two very bad shoulders.  And looking back I had for the first time ever stopped following my bliss and had decided to grow up and become what I thought would make a good adult.  Once I had began to feel somewhat healthier (or what I thought was healthier) I began to tackle my weight gain (I know it wasn't much but I wasn't happy in my own skin and hated my body) and I tried every detox known to man.  I saw the beautiful Anna begin to flourish even more than she usually did and when she said she had completed a 30 day nutritional cleanse I told her I wanted to do the same, no matter what it was.  I wanted to look fabulous for my 30th even if I couldn't feel fabulous I was going to fib my way through.  I started on the President's Pak in the middle of May and have never looked back.  I no longer suffer any digestive problems at all and in fact was told by a surgeon after a small operation "keep doing whatever it is you are doing" because he was so surprised at how healthy my gut actually was after my illness.  I have lost 6kgs and at last check 27.5cm off my body.  I have gained lean muscle mass.  I am able to train so much harder than ever before knowing that my body recovers quicker over night and although I did make it to Rottnest in a team of 4, I m now tackling it in a duo knowing that this will not be a terrible strain on my shoulders and I will do it with relative ease.  I no longer ache or suffer the pains that plagued my body as  result of inflammation and joint problems.  Not only have a balanced my body in so many ways, I have balanced my life.  I have steered my life back in a direction that brings me joy, I have learnt to listen to my body, to work with it, to heal it from the inside out and allow the healthy changes inside to present themselves naturally on the outside, unforced and beautiful.  I am happy and open and I LOVE my body and who I am (what an incredible turn around from a girl who actually hated herself).  I have learnt so much about my body, nutrition and how looking after ourselves on a basic nutritional level will encourage and assist our bodies to operate the way they were meant to, enabling us to lead the lives we were meant to.  What I believed to be a detox has turned out to be an absoultely amazing journey of total wellness - health and wealth - physical and spiritual.  I will continue to nutritionally cleanse and ensure I nourish my body with the right nutrients everyday because the benefits of doing so have completely changed my life and my body.  And the best part is that despite being a huge change with far reaching effects in all aspects of my life, it has been the easiest thing I have ever done.

Laura Howe - Accountant, Engaged and amazing fiance, sister, daughter & friend

My journey on isagenix started on the 20th April this year, since then my life has changed in so many ways, I have lost over 25kgs since starting on the products and keeping it off with ease. I still have a lot more to go before our wedding but I know that it is so achievable using this system. I have also decided to run with the incredible business opportunity that Isagenix presents and am now bringing in a weekly income that easily covers our rent, and car repayments!! Over the years I have tried so many products and programs but this is the first I have found that actually addresses the issues rather than providing a quick fix!

Ready to say YES just like I did 6 months ago and do a complete mind/body overhaul? I’m waiting for you, I’m cheering you on and I can’t WAIT to work with you to achieve any health and financial goals you have. I have a big email chocked full of more information for anyone wanting it, you just need to ask – I look forward from hearing from you all.

A review; My 30 day detox

About 12 weeks ago I had decided enough was enough. I just knew something wasn’t quite right. I was sick for about the 3rd time this year which generally is unheard of for me, I couldn’t shake constipation – sorry for the overshare but this IS a review – my cellulite wouldn’t go away no matter what the exercise I did and my bloating wasn’t just creeping in afternoon, it was all day, all night bloating. 
So I set out to find a detox. 
Before I begin, let me start by saying this. I eat clean, drink 5L of water a day without fail, take vitamins, exercise up to 5-6 times a week (for over 3 years now) and am not a huge alcohol drinker (certainly love a glass of red over the weekend though). I’m no raw vegan, but I get well and above my 2 & 5 fruit and veg a day, snack healthily and go without meat one day of the week (sometimes two). P.s the good news though is if you ARE looking for something to help you with weight loss as well and aren’t overly healthy this detox is perfect for you!!
This wasn’t about weight loss for me, it was about cleansing on the inside to make me feel better. So off I set on my research – and like the universe always does, it brought me to Peta at just the right moment who told me about Nutritional Cleansing. Hours more of my own research and I knew I had found my detox. 
I bought my Pak with still a little sceptisim. I of course thought I knew everything about my body and as I said, was as healthy as I could get for the lifestyle that I lead. Within a week on the products though I had proved myself incredibly wrong. 
Week One: I was sleeping better than I have my whole life, the kind of sleep where from the time my head hits the pillow until my alarm goes off, I am deep in sleep without interruptions. My 3pm sugar cravings started to back off slowly and I was still buzzing with energy as I was getting home at 5:30pm each night. I was regular again with the toilet. I thought that even with these improvements alone, I’d be happy, that was until…
Week Two: My bloating was almost gone (to the point where I just couldn’t believe it). My tummy started to look tonned and tight in the morning, noon and night. My moods were improving out of sight. Stressful situations at work suddenly didn’t stress me as much – life just seemed manageable (could it be that balancing my body was actually working?? It appeared so!) 
Week Three: People started making comments like “what the hell are you on?? How do you have SO much energy 24/7 and why is your skin glowing like that” .. fo’ real. This was the week my mum & sister decided this too could be the very thing they were both looking for. This was actually the week I think I reallyyy hit my detox though. I was a feeling tired again, quite tired actually and after my 3rd cleanse day – my skin broke out … (helloooo toxins leaving my body!!) 
Week Four: Everything clicked. Life made sense. In fact, I was quite emotional. Overwhelmed by the fact I could feel this good – all the time. I felt like for the first time ever I was balanced. My moods were officially 100% improved – I hadn’t felt stressed in weeks, I was bouncing through the doors at 5:30pm happy not moody and tired, my sugar cravings were completely gone, my sleep was officially consistent and my god was it deep, my skin had hit its stride and was clear and smooth and my energy was (& still is) unmatched. Not to mention my cellulite was gone (g.o.n.e – I lost 2.5cm of excess fat on each of my upper outer thigh), I had gained more muscle definition on my legs and stomach without increasing exercise (another benefit of the detox) and just felt more toned. 
I’m now on to my 3rd month, and, like I said, I’ll continue with these products as long as I am around. 
WHAT DOES IT ENTAIL???
It is a full on program including shakes, vitamins, cleanse drinks, snacks (depending which pak you get) and ionix liquid you can have every morning (or like me, every morning AND every night). 
You can use it as a meal replacement or have it alongside your meals. For me and my busy lifestyle, I have loved being able to have my shake for breakfast and shake for lunch as I’m on the go, but if you can’t handle the fact of giving up a meal or two then that’s fine too, just cut back on your portions and include your shake (win/win). There are a tonne of athletes on this program (a la Jana Pittman and Natalie Cook – 2 Australian Gold Olympians – not to mention Michael Jordan!) and for them, they just swap out two snack meals for the shakes. I.e Athletes typically eat 6 small meals a day, so they have 4 and 2 shakes. If you aren’t an athlete (like me!) I just had my shakes for brekky and lunch and then a big healthy dinner. 
“ohhh Shakes?? I have heard bad things about Shakes before” I hear you sigh. Push everything you have about them from your mind because this isn’t a diet shake program. Like I said, it’s nutritional cleansing – every shake has the following:
+ 60 essential micronutrients
+ 11 amino acids
+ 2 essential fatty acids
+ 13 vitamins
+ 21 minerals
+ 7 enzymes
+ 6 probiotics 

If I knew I was getting that in my nutrient depleted salads then I wouldn’t have looked in to a detox – look at the program as a nutrient rich vitamin heavy supplement program ready to give you the stuff your body is missing these days in the ever growing toxic world on TOP of the food you eat. 
It’s not a diet – it is a deep cellular level detox – so “will you put the weight back on as soon as you finish the products?” No, because you have gotten rid of the toxins in your body that would have clung on to that fat in that circumstance. 
This isn’t a magic pill or quick fix. It is a program that if you committ yourself to correctly and for the long term, you will see benefits you didn’t deem possible. 
Since I started I have coached 9 other girls through the program and that list is growing. Two other girls that started shortly after me have both had over 10kg weight loss (& both around 30-40cm loss) so there are weight loss benefits to it if you need it for that. 
I am now incorporating it in to my life everyday (as is Morgs! – yup, he started  the detox the same time and has had the same benefits as me if not better!) and am more fulfilled than ever getting to coach other girls through it. If this is something that sounds like you and you would love to feel like this too then email me; 
anna.ogilvie@hotmail.com – and I will load you up with ALL the info to help you make a decision if it’s for you or not. 

Inspiring Babe of the week: Peta Kelly from Anatome Integrated Wellness

I honestly don’t even know where to begin with this babe’in soul she is just THAT amazing. If you haven’t already heard of Peta or been inspired by her incredibly amazing page it would be my honour to introduce you both. 
Peta & I were introduced through a mutual friend (check out her amazing Pinterest here). She had seen we were posting similar positive ‘stuff’ on our facebook walls and connected us in a message. We had caught up for a ‘blind date’ lunch and almost 3 hours later I was walking away buzzing, inspired, excited & connected – I felt like we had the start of a soul sista love story.

Her energy, infectious. Her goals can’t help but inspire & love of life unparallelled. She can walk in a room and by the end of a talk shift mindsets and inspire you to live better and be better. She quite literally changes lives.  

She is quite possibly the most energetic, loving, soulful, INSPIRING girl I know. Hands down. Fo’ real. She lives her truth, walks her talk, and has taught me about living life with ease and abundance. (We also share the same dream to retire our mums – soon!!) 
She is the wonderful soul behind “Anatome Integrated Wellness” that aims to “Embody all aspects of Wellness ~ Wellness of the body, the mind, the soul and one’s finances. Anatome aims to nourish and encourage people all over the world to live a life purely by their own design”

See what I mean? You’re going to LOVE her so grab yourself a cup of herbal tea and settle in for some serious soul’spiration x 




+ So what do you do Peta? What is your big life vision & where did it come from?
I work with a team of AMAZING young people who are creating a life purely by their own design, while helping others do the same!
More specifically, I have a wellness business called Anatome Integrated Wellness. The vision of Anatome is to help people achieve complete wellness in their lives through an integrated approach with health, nutritional cleansing, personal development, spiritual development and wealth creation. I’m going through a bit of a transformation/evolution with Anatome and it will soon fall under the umbrella of ‘Life by my Own Design.’ 
I’ve always had a massive passion for everything health and wellbeing, and in particular, obesity! I grew up in a very active family of 4 kids and we played every sport under the sun. To me, we were the most blessed kids on the planet, enjoying lives in healthy bodies with the love and support of our amazing single Mum! 

I decided early on in life I was going to get rich and retire my Mum. How? I had no idea. But I knew it’d come. Anyway, after graduating from UWA with a BSc (Hons), and having my research on exercise and appetite published, I started a phD to continue more of the same. I soon realised in my own life though, that there was so much more to learn about the body, the mind and the soul that I needed to discover myself. Every Monday it was ‘a thing’ for my friends to be hating work, feeling gross, and just wishing the week away so that the weekend would come. It didn’t make sense to me. Why are we wishing away 5 amazing days, just to enjoy two? Around the time I came to this realisation, I was being given signs from the universe to change direction slightly so I listened to this ‘calling’, deferred my phD and started my own business aged 23. It started as a weight management business, integrating personal training and nutrition. I was learning more about the body at a deep level than ever before and slowly more pieces of the puzzle came together.  I still always felt that there was a missing link though. There was something that separated us from feeling great, to feeling AMAZING… I was on a hunt to figure it out. Raw foods, vegan, organic, juicing, you name it I was doing it. 
Surely enough, a few short months later, the universe nudged me on the shoulder and I I was introduced to the wonderful world of nutritional cleansing and ZING!  There it was… The missing link. I could write forever about the details of this discovery, the synchronicities that followed and how FREAKISHLY perfectly timed it all was. I started to feel incredible like never before, so did my clients, my family and my friends. I thought YES! This is life!  We’re meant to wake up every day feeling amazing, full of energy, clear mind, feelings of joy, happiness endlessly and with ease. I also discovered an amazing new business model which allowed me to empower people to take control of their own lives on the inside, but on the outside too, financially. 
It all clicked. Now THIS is complete wellness. My vision is to revolutionise the way young people view their health, their potential for wealth and in turn empower people of all ages live a life purely by their own design. I now lead a team of incredible young, inspiring leaders who want to change lives, starting with their own. By creating complete balance and alignment at the deepest level physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually we allow ourselves to live to our full potential. The business structure within our team allows us to dream big, live our life however we want to and help others do the same. Once I decided on my ‘WHY’, the ‘HOW’ came to me… 
I now have both the WHY and the HOW.

Tell me where you draw your own inspiration from? What lights the fire in your belly?
      
      My Mum!!
  
      The most hard working, selfless, brave and strong woman on the planet. She is my ‘why’ and she has taught me that giving selflessly with no boundaries is the only way to live. 

      I draw huge inspiration from books and audios. ‘ The Strangest Secret’ By Earl Nightingale is single handedly the 30 minute piece that picked me up from a road of mental and physical burnout at one stage, to putting me firmly on my path to freedom and joy. My wonderful team inspires me more than I can put into words. Being amongst young people who want more for the world and for themselves makes my heart sing.  AHHHHHH (Heart singing)

     + Is there a favourite book (or two!) and video that inspired you in big ways that you would love to share to inspire others?
   The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz is a MUST READ for everyone no matter what you do or who you are!
      The Go Giver- By Bob Burg. I live by the above two books. 
You inspire me so much to ‘live life by my own design’ but not everybody knows what that means – can you explain to my readers what you mean when we say that? 

 Living a life by your own design means doing WHATEVER you want with WHOEVER you want WHENEVER you want to do it! It means being physically FREE, waking up feeling amazing, and going to bed feeling amazing too. It means earning more so you can GIVE more, with no limitations. It epitomises ABUNDANCE in all aspects. Love, happiness, prosperity, growth, health… It’s being able to design your ideal day, from start to finish. It’s being able to live from a place of love, while dreaming SO BIG that it’s scary, KNOWING that you will live your dreams. It’s a choice. We choose.

  + Being a girl who lives her life by her own design, describe to me your perfect day from start to finish?

My perfect day starts with waking up EARLY feeling amazing, with the first thought that comes into my head one of gratitude. I open up French doors that overlook the ocean and meditate for halfa. I have a yummy cleanse and then I get amongst nature, whether it be a run through a beaten track or a swim in the ocean. 

Then I’ll get comfy on a hammock, or a bean bag on the balcony, inside or outside and read a book or listen to an  audio while drinking a super food smoothie and connecting all the senses. Then my ‘work’ day will begin and the real fun starts. I connect with my team, answer emails, make phone calls, have meetings. Throw some planning exciting events, holidays or trips in there too. 

For lunch I will have some yummy organic food from one of my fav raw food/wholefood cafes in Fremantle or down south. After lunch, it’s more planning, more beautiful conversations including some success stories whether it be to do with health or wealth. At night we have a wicked team meeting/presentation with lots of newbies joining us!  My family is all there too 😉  As I write this I’m on the plane to Broome to spend a super fun week in the sunshine, connecting with people. My ideal day also involves being able to jump on a plane if I want to!

+ What are the 3 tips you can share to help others live their dream life. Where can they get started? 


1)      Decide exactly what it is you want in your life and broadcast it. Vision board it and look at it every single day. Be clear on your ‘why’
2)      Nourish your body at the deepest level. If you get the inside right the outside will fall into place.
3)      Work harder on yourself than you do on your job. Always be learning.
4)      Can I have 4? – GIVE. ALWAYS BE GIVING!! ALWAYS BE GIVING? ALWAYS BE GIVING ALWAYS BE GIVING!! ALWAYS BE GIVING!!

+ What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

My Mum has given me plenty. So had my dear late Nanna.  One thing that sticks with me every single day is this… You are never deprived when someone else gains. It makes life that much more glorious to realise that and live it every single day
