One of the foundational ideas behind A Soulful Life is personal sustainability. Renewable energy comes from sources which are naturally replenished – like sunlight, wind and water. Living a sustainable life is about tapping into what naturally replenishes you.
By connecting with our own inner nature – the callings and longings unique to each of us – we create lives that naturally nourish us. More than jobs we’ve always wanted, it’s about how we’ve always wanted to live.
LIVING A SOULFUL LIFE is about allowing your true nature to inform your choices and reshape your life.
Here’s where to begin:
THE ASSESSMENT: Start by taking the survey to assess your current life.
THE VISION: Envision the life you want to be living. This will be your map.

As a life coach we define life areas to work with a person’s life. The most common areas are home, money, career, relationship, appearance, friends, family, health etc. But the deeper I get into the process of change, the more I realize that true change is about essence, not form. In other words, not about our roles and acquisitions, but how we feel when we get them.
So I’ve redefined the life areas.
Career has become Contribution.Relationship, Friends and Family are rolled into Companionship. Health has become Rejuvenation. Home remains Home, but I’ve added Setting to describe the environment around the home that nourishes. I’ve added Pace to address our personal rhythm, like being a morning person or a night owl, quick-paced or easy going. And then I’ve added Lifestyle which speaks to the way in which we live our lives.
What does it mean to live a soulful life? It’s about honoring the callings and longings within that beckon us to the life we were meant to live. But to get there, we have to move past the obstacles in our way.
In coaching we often hear things like:
- to overcome the fears that stop me
- have healthy relationships
- have financial stability
- to share my gifts
And my challenges are…
- Lack of focus and motivation
- health issues
- limiting emotions
- unhealthy relationships
With soulful coaching, we work from the inside out to connect with the life you want to live. Rather than look at the physical results, we ask the question: If you have those things…what will it get you? Which looks more like this:
- personal freedom
- living with grace
- accomplishing goals
- faith and hope restored
- forgiving and moving on
- healthier, happier relationships
- progress, movement
- sharing they’re gifts
In the end, these are the kinds of things we long for. Confidence, personal stability, healthy emotions, sharing our gifts, loving and being loved. In soulful coaching, rather than work with the outer life areas like home, money, career, relationship, appearance, etc., we look to the inner life areas for guidance.
By listening to our unique inner nature we can create lives that nourish us – lives that feed our souls. More than jobs we’ve always wanted, it’s about how we’ve always wanted to live.
SOULFUL COACHING is about connecting with your true nature.
Every day that passes is another day spent fulfilling your dreams
or wishing you had.

IGNITING CHANGE: From where you are to where you want to be.
by Anna Francesca Celestino
Scientists tell us that our universe is expanding. Since we live in the universe, it seems only logical that our lives should be expanding, too. So why aren't they? Why do we often feel stuck and small?
The reason is timing. Change happens in the now. Not yesterday, not tomorrow - now. Yet, that's rarely where we are. All too often, we're sad about the past or worried about the future. To live lives that surprise us and change us in ways we could never imagine, we must get into the now.
IGNITING CHANGE shows how to use three simple actions - love, proximity, and courage - to create transformative change. When used together, these actions deliver us into the moment. Like magic, possibilities emerge where there were seemingly none before.
If there's a gap between where you are and where you want to be, if your options seem limited, and hope is in short supply, maybe it's time to turn up the heat. What changes are waiting to be ignited in your life?
"Igniting Change fills a significant vacuum in spirituality literature. I recommend it without reservation, and am certain it will soon be a classic in the field." Marcella Bakur Weiner, PhD, Author of The Problem is the Solution.
"Anna Celestino insightfully provides the reader with a clear road map. If you desire change in your life, this book will reach deep within and guide you to transformation." Joan King, PhD, M.C.C., author of Cellular Wisdom for Women: An Inner Work Book.
"Any growth process that has as its foundation the immense capacity of the human heart for love, gets my vote." Cliff Barry, Founder, Shadow Work Seminars
THE WORLD IS CHANGING. Nothing seems to work like it used to. Relationships, home, money, job. People are feeling the need to adjust their lives. But how?
Imagine having someone to support and mentor you through those changes. Someone to guide you to a new life, inspire you when you’re stuck, and cheer you on when you succeed.
What is it worth to get your life on track? To live the life you know in your heart you want to live? Is there a better time than now?
Many people think they can’t afford coaching to which I would ask: What is it costing you not to?
I asked myself this very question. I had set a goal to write a book but time was passing by and things kept getting in the way. I finally invested in a coach. She kept me on track and now I have the satisfaction of seeing my book in print.
Since then I've turned to coaching whenever I feel stuck or confused about what I'm doing, where I'm going and how to get there. My life has become substantially richer by having received support to pursue my goals. Additionally, I continue to use the tools I learned from coaching to move my life forward.
The money I spent became an investment in myself which pays off every day in career, relationship, spiritual growth, family, fun, and overall happiness and well-being.
