can I assert myself + still be feminine?

Happy Wed!

How are you?

It’s Q+A time!

Today’s Q+A from our community: “Diana, I struggle with feeling comfortable asserting myself and standing up for myself. I’ve been told that that’s not “feminine” and I am trying to be more in my feminine to attract a soul mate relationship. Can I do both? Where should I start? Help!”

This is such a great question! 

There is such a balance between wanting to be “feminine” and also respect yourself and voice how you feel/what’s okay and not okay.

We’ve been programmed by society, the media, well meaning friends and even family on how to be the ‘right’ kind of woman to attract a soul mate. And it can feel hard to know what “both” looks like.

But there’s a question underneath the question that you need to look at first…

Disclaimer: I recorded this after a meditation out in nature, so if my voice sounds a bit stoned, (I’m not) that’s why! 🙂 Bonus points if you can hang until the end to hear the adorable birds!

you know more than you think you do…

So often we say “I don’t know” when asked about what to do in a certain situation.

But the truth is, we always know something.

Sometimes we only know a piece of information and we need to ask more questions.

Other times, we know but we wish we didn’t because once you know something, well you can’t “unknow” it, right?

It takes courage to take responsibility for what your intuition is guiding you towards…and then to act on it.

This could be in a relationship, a career situation, or even with your own health.

Intuition works in steps.

You aren’t always given the staircase and until you fully commit to the next step, you won’t see or recognize the next one.

A great 3-step process you can take yourself through when you are faced with a challenging situation in any area of your life is this:

Step 1: Get grounded.
My favorite thing to do is dance in my living room to Spotify.
A brisk walk or standing barefoot in grass or being in water also will do the trick.
Is it cold where you are? Take a shower-that will do it too!

Step 2:  Ask on paper: “What I already know about this situation is….”
Drop into your heart. Take some deep breaths and do some free writing. Go until you feel empty.

Step 3: Ask, “Is there any action I could take NOW to move the situation forward?”
Sometimes you will get a no. It may just be time to have awareness and let things be. But other times, you’ll get a nudge to call this person/go to this event/etc. Follow your nudgings.

Revisit this process as many times as you want when making a decision.

You know way more than you think you do and the more you practice, the easier it will be to move out of the “I don’t know” phase and create powerful decisions that empower you and and get you closer to where you want to be.

Love and Blessings,

Happy Wed and October!

Hope is in the air! As we begin the month, it’s so important to take stock of how far you’ve come-no matter what challenges may have arisen last month, it’s the perfect week to take the lessons from before and apply them to your deepest desires.

As it relates to relationships, a lot of old relationships from your past may come up for review-in some cases, it may show you how much you have grown as your response to old triggers will be much different than it was before. In other cases, it will show you where you have some unfinished business with another and most likely is there to show you what’s really, really important….and what’s just not anymore so you can move forward.

I pulled three cards for you to anchor in this week:

  • This week’s theme: water the seeds you’ve planted. 
  • Message: A cloud lifts and forward movement is happening! 
  • As you draw strength from your past and put energy into your hearts desires, you will begin to reap the rewards of your hard work and clear intentions!

All in all, October will be an excellent month, ripe with possibilities and breakthroughs if you remember that any emotions that come up are there to benefit you!

Love and Blessings for a beautiful October,

how to push through resistance (one question)

Facing resistance?

Whenever you are taking action in the direction of your dream, whether that’s manifesting a great relationship or doing that thing you always wanted to do but were scared to, resistance will rear its lovely head.

Our primitive brains hate any kind of change and any suggestion outside the lines of our normal patterns will set off this alarm bell “Danger, danger, stay away!” and it can be so easy to just slip back into what’s comfortable.

But if you’re reading this, that tells me that “okay” is not good enough.

You want awesome!! And you want it like yesterday, right?

So, then resistance is something to make friends with.

Instead of running from it (which never works, been there, done it, got the T-shirt) you can ask yourself this one question to tame it.

Q: What would the version of me who already has the thing I want do/not do / say/not say / respond/choose right now?

It feels a bit like make-believe but who cares? I always say, do what works and heading into a space of possibility helps quiet that freaked out part of your brain that becomes hyper focused on keeping you safe and exactly where you are.

Play with the question above. Journal on it. See what comes up.

The more you can become emotionally neutral to the primitive brain and instead consciously redirect and co-create your next moves from your future self, the easier it will be to get there.

And also hold onto it once you manifest it!

Q: Are you willing to give the question above a shot this week? share with me in the comments!

your 3-card message…ready goddess?

Happy Wed!

This week I pulled 3 cards for the community as we are coming off the heels of the New Moon in Virgo. 

If you’re new to my world, welcome! You’ll find a mix of spiritual wisdom, love/relationship + life advice + tools to help you trust your intuition.

Before I share the message, I want to encourage you to join me for the FREE Empowered Goddess-a-thon that starts…TODAY (it’s okay if you see this late-join us anyway!). It’s free and if you know you could benefit from boosting your self-confidence, you will love this! 

This week’s message: 

The storyteller: what stories are you telling yourself are true about your life and others? Are they supportive or destructive? A recent challenge can be smoothed over by simply a change in perspective.

Sacred mountain: a great week to observe and be quiet for in the silence you receive divine answers to your inquiry. Keep a journal!

Eagle medicine: by the end of the week you have the potential to blow your own mind with all the spiritual assistance you witness as you soar above so called problems and towards your most cherished dreams!

Q: Which card resonates with you and how you have been feeling the most? Hit reply and tell me! 

ps: Ready to release all that’s held you back from being your authentic self?

 If YES, have you applied to join us for the winter Sedona retreat, Way of the Wise Woman? 

If gathering with an intimate, high-vibe group (less than 6 Goddesses) November 2-5 in the breathtaking, world-renowned Red Rocks of Sedona sounds like how you’d like to wrap up your 2018 and usher in visioning for 2019, I encourage you to learn more + apply! 

Have an amazing week and I look forward to kicking off the Empowered Goddess-a-thon with those of you who feel guided to join us!

Love and Blessings,
