I have changed back to my birth name “Anastasia”

Life is so precious and short, so I am committed with every fibre of my being to following my heart and soul. Life evolves, reshapes, reforms – things change and grow. Things that once were a deep, meaningful part of our lives also at times fall away. Sometimes we complete a stage of absolute transformation, shedding so many layers that we emerge like a phoenix from the ashes, a major life shift.

And so this is where I am at! I’ve closed the door on an old chapter of my life and my heart would not rest until I honoured the calling in my soul. That calling was to reclaim my original name, my birth name ‘Anastasia’. 

I changed my name to Trinity around 13 years ago (and was known as Trinity between 2005 and 2018). It is a name I adore and will always have a special place in my heart, although also it also signifies a chapter in my life that is now over and is falling away.

Over the last year and a half, much of my world fell apart. I feel deeply humbled from what I have learned. I feel an abundance of gratitude for the insight I’ve gained about what it really means to surrender ourselves into the fragility of being human. I feel so thankful that I have learned to trust that no matter what, there is always a way if we listen deep within. During that time, I’ve also witnessed the strength of spirit that can pull us out of even the darkest nights. It has inspired me to be a better human, to help bring darkness to light, to ‘be the change’ and continue to allow ripples of my deepest love to ripple out into our Sacred Earth.

As I type this I am sitting on a mountain as the sacred winds of change brush through me, harmonising with nature. I am no longer in England, having recently completely let go of my old home and life in Glastonbury. For now, wherever I lay my hat is home. A liberating and enriching experience that truly makes my soul sing as I am drawn back to the Earth and nature for inspiration and guidance for authentic living. Who knows where I will finally land… All I ask is that the universe puts me where ever I can be of best divine service.

I am delighted to say that I will be continuing the conscious kitchen work as before but also expanding into other areas that will be of interest to many people tuning in here (such as animal and plant spirit medicine, kind earth living, following the heart and personal/spiritual growth). I will however, be renaming my website (all will be revealed within the next couple of weeks).

Thank you for being here. Thank you for reading and being part of this journey with me.

with love

Anastasia

    What a beautiful name! A ‘re-birth’ for sure. And a ‘home-coming’. And courageous! Wishing you all you need and desire and love from here and onwards into 2019 and beyond…. I so look forward to learning more… I would so love to learn more about animal and spirit medicine and lessons from the Earth. Please keep sending foodie stuff.

    So beautiful, Anastasia. I celebrate this reclaiming in new birth! I went through a similar journey this last year, and after divorce found that I could not return to my maiden name. It was no longer there for me. I chose a new one, and it feels like the wind beneath my wings. Loving you and all that you are on the sacred journey called life
