Ready for a big leap? 3 steps to get you movin!

unnamedI was talking with a client the other day about feeling like she’d outgrown the skin she’d been living in.

It was as if her new self was dying to emerge but the old self kept trying to rein her back in, with repeating old ways of reacting to the people around her, feeling less than and not using her voice to speak up for herself!

She was sooooo ready to graduate from that.

And the metaphor that came up was a pot.

The pot is your creative expression, your true essence, the breeding ground for you to bloom and be the person you came here to be.

To give you an example, in my kitchen, I have a little basil plant.

I’ve been pretty lazy about moving it to a real pot, so it’s been sitting in that little plastic container it came in from Trader Joes.

I water it.

I talk to it when I remember to.

I do all the things you’re supposed to do with plants.

But it’s getting rather big for its pot.

It reminds me every week of this fact but I haven’t done it yet.

It’s died nearly ten times but it’s hung in there, as if to say, “Diana, can’t you see I need to move outta here?!”

I’m transferring it to its bigger pot today. And I know it will be happy.

It’s the same thing with a certain area or areas in your life.

Why we hold ourselves back:

We know we’ve graduated or outgrown a certain way of be-ing but the future seems uncertain. New soil seems scary.

We know the old soil.

Even if it’s moldy, crusty and dries up two seconds after you water it.

And what the heck are we going to do with all that extra space?!

Better to stay put where you know what’s expected of you.

You know what to expect.

But it’s getting uncomfortable in that little pot.

You’re a bit restless.

And you look across at the bigger pot in your mind and it seems so far away, even though it’s not.

What it takes: 3 steps

Whether it’s a relationship that’s gone stale and past repair, a job you hate that you’re just in because it pays you well, or a way of thinking that is just well….not something you’re proud to BE anymore, the first step is to

:: give yourself permission to want out.

You’d be surprised how much we can hem and haw, dancing around growth and making changes because it’s easier to do that than actually say that you want something different.

How dare you? Your subconscious may shout! It’s okay. Just ignore that voice. It just wants to protect you but it’s not helping your cause.

:: identify what’s on the other side of the pot.

What does a bigger pot or version of yourself or your life area look like? What would you be doing? Who would you be doing it with? What do you feel like in that new pot? You may even bust out the paintbrush or journal and start giving it some life. To make significant changes like skipping into a different pot, you’ve got to give your subconscious something positive to latch onto!

:: take a baby step today

What’s one thing you could do to move you closer to the bigger pot? Maybe it’s to try on speaking up for yourself instead of being quiet the next time you feel a boundary has been crossed. Even if you feel like you’re going to die or hurt someone’s feelings. Maybe it’s to pick up the phone and apologize. Or write that email you’ve been putting off. Change comes with action.

Is being in a bigger pot scary?

It can be.

But it can also be super exciting because the sooner you step into who you really are, the less likely you are to give in to fears that stop you in your tracks.

The more people will respect you because you respect yourself.

And the better you’ll feel about yourself because nothing says confidence like hoppin out of the small pot.

Are you feeling exhausted, emotional or empty? open up!

I spent a good part of Saturday in my bed cocooning with books, staring into space, and writing in my journal. Oh..and eating.

And giving myself permission to do so.

It’s not always easy.

Our logical mind says, “You should be doing something more productive!”

Screw that.

Productivity comes from a peaceful center. And sometimes that requires a slow-down or a stop. Click here to Tweet that.

It’s the Goddess way.

It’s not all about driving or pushing yourself hard.

And if you’re feeling depleted in any way, it’s a good sign that you’ve ignored your feminine energy.

Feminine energy goes inward and its symbol is a spiral.

If you look at a spiral, it feels like you’re just going around and around or nowhere but nothing could be further from the truth.

You gather layer upon layer of information and energy and retreat into a space in the center or the top (depending on how you draw it!) to sort it all out and see what’s there waiting for you.

Very different than pushing and shoving your way to the top, worrying about what everyone else is doing or if you got their first? (distorted masculine energy that our society loooves so much!)

Free Goodie for you.but first, will you Stop Doing it All Yourself?

One of the Goddess principles I teach my clients (male or female!) is to encourage them to stop doing it all alone and to notice what arises in their body when they think about that.

Sometimes it feels really really hard to ask for help or to just notice that two heads really can be better than one!

And so, to walk my own talk, I’ve asked my good friend, Mary Susan Gala, The Feminine Wisdom Genie, to teach us this week!

I interviewed her last week on my show and she shared an exercise with us to help you tap into your 2nd chakra (where we store a lot of shame and stories around receiving!)

in a transition? call on this ArchAngel!

Happy Tuesday!

Have you been feeling the energy shifts?

Feeling things come to a halt, or a slow crawl and feeling like you’re spinning your wheels?

If so, you’re not alone.

But it’s also a time of incredible transformation-coming on Thursday, you may start to be pulled into yourself.

What it can look like:

  • wanting to be alone more, isolating yourself to regroup
  • being extra sensitive to what people say (or don’t say…reading between the lines and the silence)
  • going back to the drawing board on something near and dear to your heart or re-working your original plan so it fits with who you are now.
  • thinking about old relationships (friendships, lovers, old clients, etc) and re-connecting or finding another layer you need to heal to move on for good

If you’ve been hanging out in my world for a bit, you know how much I love Angels.

I call on them for everything and it’s so easy to forget that you don’t have to do it all yourself!

If you’re going through any kind of a life or professional transition right now, there is an Archangel that you can call on to help you through it.

His name is Azrael.

Check out this short video about him + how you can call on him to help you navigate tricky emotional waters during a transition + rock your shift!

PS: I’ve been asked if I am still doing Angel readings and the answer is yes! The Angels are always a part of my work with my clients and one of my absolute favorite things is to tune into the Angels around you and channel specific messages to help you move forward and trust that you’re on the right path. They are also a huge part of the energy work that I do with clients to help you release blocks that are keeping you stuck in love and life. If you feel guided to get some clarity, I’d love to be of assistance!

Your Spiritual Nugget

How did you spend your Labor Day?

I had every intention on plopping myself on the couch and watching movies but instead, I was called by Spirit at the crack of dawn to start space clearing and re-vamping my space.

I find that each time I do it, it brings up something new for me that I couldn’t have seen otherwise.

And right in line with the Universal energies, I decided to try something new.

Have you heard of Periscope?

It’s a new app that lets you tune in in real-time videos/lessons/musing with people anywhere in the world.

*If you’re on it, please add me: @dancinggoddess (Periscope)

Yesterday, impromptu I shot my first video for it (which you get to see right here! Yay!)

If you’re not manifesting as consistently as you like, look at your Wisdom corner!

The space I re-vamped was the “Wisdom” corner of my home and even if you don’t know a thing about space-clearing or Feng-Shui, this week I want to show you and offer some tangible tips to help you

  • locate your Wisdom corner + change its vibration so it helps you
  • help you hold onto the awesome things you create (more money, a solid relationship,a new exercise routine, etc)
  • stop reverting back to your old pattern Ex: money comes in, money goes right back out. 
  • increase your self-confidence in building a strong foundation for what it is you want

the unconventional action I took that got me to NYC

If you’ve been on here awhile, you may know that last year, I manifested one of my burning desires to live in Manhattan (NYC). The whole live sex-and-the-city fantasy mixed with nostalgia you can say. (my parents fell in love in the city and our family history goes way back there.)

And last year, I manifested it. From a beautiful place to live, to amazing new friends (literally within 48 hours of moving) to getting signed on a new Sirius XM podcast station at the Plaza hotel (while I was just messing around in flip flops and drinking a Bellini!) It was one of the most synchronistic, Divinely-ordered life experiences I have ever had. 

And today I want to share with you one step that helped me create this with the intent that it helps you manifest with more confidence.

Sound good?

Yay! So…I was living in Kansas City at the time and I was feeling super conflicted because well, I had to leave the man I loved to pursue this insistent dream that just wouldn’t go away. Even when I kept pushing it to the side, it kept coming up until one day I snapped.

Soul-based desires are like that. They just don’t care how much you try to lie to yourself because they see the real you.

I remember it vividly. I was at home and was suddenly struck with the feeling that I needed to paint. And I kept getting a specific visual of what to paint. My whole body was tingling and I grabbed some old newspaper, my watercolors and a blank canvas I had forgotten about, plopped down on the hardwood floor in our tiny living room and went to town.

Disclaimer: I hadn’t painted in years. But it’s like Spirit and the Angels were guiding my brushstroke.

As I furiously mixed the colors and filled the blank canvas, I started to cry. Uncontrollable, deep, gut-wrenching sobs. 

Keep painting, a quiet voice said.

So I did…a taxi, a skyscraper, even the damn Kodak billboard.

I was painting Times Square…. Goddess style.

Then I started laughing because the final stroke was of big black Old Hollywood-style sunglasses out the taxi cab. No face. Just the glasses and a hand.

It was so me.

And when the painting was done, the tingling didn’t stop.

It got stronger.

I said aloud, “I’m going to New York. I AM going to New York. I will tell him (bf) tonight. It’s happening.”

To make a long story short, I told him that night.

And within 3 weeks, I packed my bags and headed for the Big Apple.

Everything fell into place like magic and with a bucket of uncertainty about my relationship and a heavy dose of faith and optimism, I kissed him goodbye and boarded the plane.

Sometimes it takes Spirit literally taking our hand and helping us see in a very literal form like a painting what is important to our Soul’s journey.

Even when it scares us.

So, that’s my big secret.

I painted. 

But it was no ordinary painting.

I had Spirit in the driver’s’ seat and an unwavering intention and commitment to surrender to whatever was waiting for me on the other side. 

Now let’s take it to you.

  1. What’s something you’d like to manifest in the next 30 days? SHARE IT WITH US in the comments as social proof!

For the brave:

  1. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the highest, what would you say your level of commitment is to your manifestation? 
  2. If it’s less than 10, ask yourself why. What’s missing? What’s holding you back? Figure out why it’s not a burning desire because unless you want it bad enough, it can’t really come to you. Once you’ve solidified it, go to step 4.
  3. Paint. Dance. Write. Choose a creative activity and surrender it over to Spirit. See what happens! Follow the next right action!
