mea culpa

“‘I’ve been searching for ways to heal myself, and I’ve found that kindness is the best way.”-Lady Gaga

Happy Tuesday!

Today’s Q+A from the community is around oopsies.

Or what I call mea culpas.

Q: Diana, I said something I totally regret to someone I care about. I got caught up in the moment and I can’t take back what I said because it was via text. I feel terrible and I don’t know what to do.

A: I love this question! Because it’s not really about just this situation, is it? It’s about how to manage the emotions within you that come up after you let something out that is less than aligned or in flow.

Here are 4 steps to be kind to yourself after a mea culpa:

  1. Feel the feels.

You can’t pretend anger isn’t there. Or embarrassment. Or whatever other emotion prompted the mea culpa. Let yourself feel it and it doesn’t own you. It moves through you. My favorite methods? Journaling, writing it on a post-it and putting it in my Worry Box. And dancing it out with Pandora, my Goddess music sidekick. We’ve worked a lot of shi_ out over the years.

  1. Talk to your small self.

The small self is the one inside you that is afraid, that lashes out, that worries too much about what others think of her. She often just wants to be heard and seen. So, find a comfy seat, grab a hot beverage and ask her (out loud or on paper): “What do you want me to know? What do you need to express? I promise I will just listen to you.” And then shut up and listen. Let it flow out of you. Wisdom comes when there’s space to be heard without judgement.

  1. Thank her. Thank all involved.

If you subscribe to the belief that the Universe is 1000% on your side and that everything that happens to you is meant to aid in your spiritual and personal growth, then after you’ve gone through the first two steps, you can move to gratitude. Authentic gratitude, not that love and light crap masqueraded in rage 🙂

  1. Surrender.

One of my favorite prayers to say once I’ve cleared the first three steps: (it’s yours if you want it)

“I now forgive myself for any hurt I may have inflicted in this situation, intentional or unintentional. I now turn this over to you 100%. If there are any actions I can take to bring peace and balance to this situation, make it abundantly, unmistakably clear. And if not, give me the courage to be still and trust that you are handling this. Thank you! And so it is!”

i brought in the big guns for you…(boo!)

Happy Halloween!

As it is the “spookiest” night of the year here in the States, I thought it would be fun to mix things up on the blog.

Sometimes it’s the things we cannot see that can most significantly impact our minds, bodies and souls the most.

More specifically, energy!

We can’t see energy easily with the naked eye (unless you have developed your clairvoyance) but we know it’s there, affecting you, right?

And with cell phones, laptops, TV’s and other gadgets permeating our entire life, it’s important to know how you can work with technology instead of letting it drain your energy and wreck havoc on not just your health, but also your intuitive perception and mental clarity.

So…I brought in the big guns because I know nothing about EMF other than it stands for “Electro-Magnetic-Energy” so I am delighted to introduce you to Nicholas Pineault, my colleague and soon-to- be dad and bestselling author of “The Non-Tin Foil Guide to EMF’s” that comes out tomorrow! (November 1)

I’m so not sciency and techny, but I brought Nick on because he has a way of explaining scientific stuff and bringing it down to a practical, this-is- how-it-affects-us- in-everyday- life level…oh and he is totally Woo as well!

In this super fun Zoom video exclusive, you will learn:

  • What the heck are EMF’s and how do they affect our productivity, sleep, sex life and even fertility!
  • What you can do to make your cellphone isn’t draining your energy (without breaking the bank)
  • The one thing that interrupts sleep more than anything else (it’s not what you think)
  • Super effective EMF fixes you can buy on Amazon to increase productivity in your work space with your laptop (without letting it drain you).
  • And I even popped in and share my #1 tool to get out of your head and kick the worry habit (Because really, you can choose to be afraid of everything you can’t see…or you can do this!)

Watch it here.

Happy Halloween!
Love,
Diana

i started laughing when i saw this….

Have you ever had an awesome morning only to come home later and have life throw you a total curveball?

It could be small or large, but it almost feels like the Universe is out to get you because you had too good a time?

Funny story: I came home after a fun day of socializing with friends and acupuncture to find my puppy, Bella in a pile of torn up paper in the center of my living room.

She knew she was in a big trouble-ears back, tail between her legs and belly exposed as if to say, I surrender! I was bored! I’m sorry!

I gave her a stern look and headed over to see her handiwork.

What would it be?

What had I left out?

Praying it wasn’t something really important.

And then I gasped out loud when I saw what she had chewed up.

It was an old CD cover of a brain-wave meditation I had been looking for called “Attracting Love.”

There in the center of my living room was love in a sea of little red and white pieces strewn everywhere with Bella plopped on top.

I burst into laughter as I saw her butt warming and hiding the perfectly intact CD itself.

It got me thinking about mindset when it comes to love…and really anything else.

In any given moment, you have a choice of how to think about something that happens to you.

1. You can see it as the Universe conspiring against you and play the victim. Ex: Look at the symbolism-maybe the Universe is trying to tell me that there’s never enough love to go around. I can’t enjoy myself and have more. Who am I kidding?

Or…..

2. You can see it as the Universe conspiring for you and play the grateful receiver. Ex: Look at the symbolism-maybe the Universe is reminding me that no matter what happens, love is always present. It can change form, appear to be broken/taken away/scattered/gone, etc, but it’s all in the air and all around and within you.

So, are you going to choose lack and limitation, taking every single thing that happens as a personal sign against your desires OR are you going to choose lavish abundance and an attitude that everything that happens is a sign meant to help you grow, open your heart even more, love deeper and look deeper at the big lesson showing up?

Your choice.

Whatever you choose will inform what you see…what you recognize out in the world and how you perceive the messages your intuition is trying to send you.

And what you get more of.

Life will throw you curve balls.

Love won’t always look the way you expect it to.

Puppies will chew up your CD covers.

But love isn’t something for the chosen few.

It’s for you because you are love.

Q: So, whatever happens this week, will you remember to choose the mindset that moves
you in the directions of your desires?

That’s today’s little love nudge for you.

Ps: Going through a tough situation or decision that you’d love some clarity on?

is it fear or a red flag? 3 steps to tell

Have you ever been a situation where you aren’t sure if your intuition is telling you to move ahead and push past an old fear…or if you’re avoiding a bright red flag to stop and pay attention?

An awesome question came in from a woman who wrote:
“Diana, I’ve gone on a few dates with this guy and I’m not sure I should go out with him again. I really like him and I don’t know if I’m just being crazy and getting in my own way or if it’s my intuition warning me to stop dating him. How do I know for sure?”

Now, first off, no matter what the situation (relationship or otherwise), high fives for asking the question!

Really-our intuition is a muscle that can be accessed at any time and it can be really confusing when you are learning how to trust it again and know what it’s trying to tell you.

So to make it super easy, I’ve broken it down into three simple steps for you!
