Hello! I am Angela Legh, I’m so happy that you found me!
I know that you and I were meant to meet, even if it is just virtually.
If you are seeking answers, I may be able to help. But first, I will tell you a little about me, so you understand my perspectives. From all appearances, I had it all together. Anyone looking from the outside would think I had everything. But on the inside, I felt like I was dying a little every day. Misery filled my days, and I could not affect my environment in the way I wanted to.
I was the victim of my circumstances.
I had a responsible job in local government; I was a mom and a wife. But I had patterns of behavior that didn’t serve me. At work, I would over give; and then feel victimized when they did no recognize my contributions. At one point, I was filling the role of three jobs; but only paid for one.
The same pattern revealed in my home life; I gave myself away, I lost my voice; I didn’t speak my truth because the price I would pay for doing so was too great. I saw myself as the victim of my ex-husband. In my mind, he needed to change; I was innocent.
But everything changed when the Tubbs wildfire swept through the wine country of California in 2017. Our family home was destroyed. I had to rethink my life; everything was lost, there was no structure.
When you must rebuild your life from scratch, you get the opportunity to choose a new direction. The fire knocked the wind out of me, and I fell into a deep depression. I began to question everything, including my existence. I also questioned why I was allowing myself to live a life that was making me miserable. It isn’t easy to choose to hurt someone, but I knew if I stayed in my marriage, I would shrivel up and die.
I needed internal strength; I had to choose myself even if it meant causing tremendous pain to another person. My empathic nature was the one thing holding me in my circumstances. Once I built up enough inner strength, I left my 32-year marriage. Soon after that, I retired from my job. I began a healing journey that took me to several countries and through many self-help programs.
I learned that his behavior triggered me because I had an internal wound from my childhood that matched the energy of his behavior. I learned that everything that triggers me is revealing a wound I hold inside. This new perspective allowed me to rise above the victim role that I had worn so well and see the value of the gift he gave me.
By revealing the inner wounds triggered by his behavior, he was gifting me the opportunity to heal. During our marriage, I was reactive, and things just escalated. Once I left the marriage, and I had the perspective shift, I was able to see him in a new light.
Traveling the world allowed me to see that we are all the same inside. We all have hopes and dreams. We all desire to be loved; we all want the best for our children. Some are wounded souls who make painful choices that can victimize others, but most people are good.
I started writing books; the first few were self-help anthologies, where I wrote about the power of forgiveness and learning to surrender to life. I realized that I wanted to reach children, to teach them the lessons I learned through hardship. Somehow, my life lessons ended up in a fairytale, the Bella Santini Chronicles.
I realized that I could not help children get in touch with their inner magic without paying attention to the needs of their parents. My mission to help children thrive in emotional well-being, and if their parents are overstressed, the children are more challenged. So, I began helping adults tap into their inner magic through my online course and one-on-one mentoring for a small group of individuals.
I went through a natural disaster so I could be a guiding light for you – to help you discover your inner magic, the magic of love, curiosity, childlike joy, and playfulness.
I shared this with you so you know that I understand where you are. I’ve been there myself.
I know how it feels to be in such deep despair that suicide seems to be a viable option for ending your pain.
I know how it feels to suppress pain and anger so much that misery takes over your life.
I know how it feels to wear a mask of success, while inside I was dying
I know how it feels to want more out of life even when you appear to have it all.
I know how it feels to over-give so much that being tired, frustrated, and overwhelmed is your norm.
I also know there’s more for you, and you can change your life.
Maybe you have tried to do it all by yourself, but it’s not working out the way you want it to. Maybe it is time to try something different.
Sometimes we need to hear advice from the right person. Sometimes we need to work with someone who has been through adversity so they understand our needs. If my messages resonate with you, I may be able to help you shift your reality.
I’m serious about helping you create the life you deserve!
If you’re serious, I invite you to apply for a complimentary Discovery Session with me, and we’ll explore the possibilities that exist for you.
