About Annie Burnside

A modern bridge between the mainstream and the mystical, Annie Burnside, M.Ed., is a soul nurturer, author, public speaker and teacher specializing in parenting and spiritual development. As a soul nurturer, Annie inspires others to listen to the voice of their own soul making direct divine connection fully accessible within daily reality. She became especially interested in working with other parents on a spiritual level as she began to remind her own children of their divine nature. The author’s mission is to inspire raised consciousness in individuals and families around the world by reminding them that they are above all else creative, intuitive, eternal, infinite, energy beings and led to her award-winning first book, Soul to Soul Parenting. It is Annie's perspective that greater intimacy with the voice of the soul leads to living true and will change our world.

Stop Passing The Buck

I write this blog as an emphatic plea for us all to begin taking greater conscious responsibility for our own input and output so that we can stop passing the buck onto others.

Pity On None, Compassion For All

AnnieBurnside3 2

It is vitally important that we deepen our understanding and outpouring of compassion by first acknowledging a key difference between compassion and pity. Most of us are taught that pity and compassion are close cousins, if not identical twins. Whether outwardly stated or not, often the energy behind the healing thoughts, words and actions that… Continue Reading →

The other day, I excitedly met a woman for coffee to discuss our work, our passions and how we might collaborate on a few projects close to our hearts.

Why Credentials Might Not Really Matter!

AnnieBurnside3 2

I have contemplated the idea of “the degree” a lot in the past several years through both my own experiential lens and through the experiences of several others whose work I greatly appreciate.

First of all, it is still so strange to me that I now blog about my inner shifts, heart’s desires and soul truths that used to remain hidden away in my own personal journals.

AnnieBurnside3 2

Recently, I have been thinking a lot about life and death – but mainly life. The truth is, no matter how much we may resist the notion, we are all terminal. And if we really let this sink in… And if we really contemplate this for more than a few seconds here and there… And if… Continue Reading →

Recently, I attended my 25th high school reunion. I hadn’t been back to my hometown in this capacity without a spouse or children for fifteen years.
