Love in Unexpected Places (A Story about trust, surrender and Divine synchronicities in love!)

by Diana Dorell 

Sometimes Spirit sends us what we want in a very unexpected way.

Can I share a true story with you that happened in the Red Rocks?

It’s my intention that reading it helps you trust more in the power of love even when it seems totally impossible.

One day in the Red Rocks….

2 weekends ago, I led a meditation ritual with all the ladies from my Ignite Your Soul retreat to prepare them spiritually for the silent hike we were about to take together. 

The entire weekend the theme was: it is safe to love, you are loved, self-love. You get it 🙂

But what happened that particular morning blew my mind. 

As everyone’s eyes were closed, I felt a man’s presence behind me.

Sure enough, a man with a goofy grin on his face and a backpack was planted right on the perimeter of our sacred space.

I wasn’t sure what to do.

Should I stop the ritual and tell him to go away?

Was he Divinely supposed to help us?

After all, I had just finished a workshop on honoring the Divine masculine and feminine.

I called in the Angels for guidance.

Thoughts raced and as soon as the meditation broke, he rushed right up to me and said, “I have a gift for you from Mother Earth. 

(Cray-cray red flag alert! He’s a loony Sedona guy who is probably on some peoty!! my logical mind was shouting!)

But I humoured him and opened my hands half laughing.

Sometimes you just have to trust the moment.


He gave me a gorgeous heart-shaped rock from the canyon that was hand carved.

My mouth dropped.

Then, he smiled, gave me a hug and proceeded to go around the circle and gifted each of the women their own love rock with the same blessing.

“A gift from Mother Earth for you.”

Everyone was astonished and it was the perfect way to start our trek into the vortex.

We passed a few cute male cyclists who asked, “Hi Ladies! Have a great hike! Do you need anything?” Uhh….no? This is pretty good!

(Blush Godddess moment!) 

When it rains, it pours. Just remember to embrace the flow!

Then it got better.

We did the silent walk and as my i-Phone timer went off to conclude the ritual, we heard a beautiful flute in the distance.

Where was it coming from?

One of the ladies pointed to the sky and said, “Look! It’s Robert the Heart Rock Guy! He’s on top of the canyon playing his flute!!”

Another you-cant-make-this-shit-up moment.

How did he get to the top so fast?

It was at least 3 miles up. Tele-port? Astral Travel? Anything is possible in Sedona!

He grins, waves at us and says, “This one’s for all of you ladies! 

And so it was that Ignite Your Soul concluded in Divine Order Goddess-like fashion!


Take-Aways: (All Tweet-ables!)

  • When there is a pure intention of love, magic follows! You just have embrace that it can come from anywhere, not just where it’s come before. Click to Tweet: http://ctt.ec/wg2s4

ps: Ready for clarity and confidence?

11:11:11 + your spiritual message about love

“Be Yourself. Everyone else is already taken.”-Oscar Wilde


I’m just coming off my Sedona high from this weekend’s Ignite Your Soul retreat and so many amazing insights came up high in the Red Rocks with the Goddesses who came. I will share more about that next week!

But to add to the already electric vibes in the air, it is also a triple 11 day which means MAJOR transformation potential, especially around your relationships.

How I got that:



What that means:

The number 11 is a master number of relationship and if you look at it, it literally looks like a pathway. 

It represents a gateway, an initiation you walk through and with 3 “11’s” in the line-up, it represents: your past self-your present thoughts-and the future you are creating. Within you.

It’s the perfect time to:

  • be bold and ask for what you really really want (vs what you think you can get)
  • bury the hatchet once and for all and give up having to be “right” and know it all and 
  • put your focus instead on how much peace you can gift yourself in any given relationship

In short, in any given moment, are you going to choose peace or are you going to choose war within yourself?

Again it’s that 11 gateway thing.

One path brings you more to battle, more to fight, more to “figure out.”

The other path brings you lessons learned vs mistakes made, a second chance and a sense of abundance and connection.

The true connection and love that only comes when you give up seeing yourself as separate from the Divine in another person or a situation. 

The person that’s irritating you?

Maybe you knew them in a past life, but what are they activating in you that wants to have a voice?

The person you’re jealous of?

Maybe they are really just showing you your own potential that you have been afraid to step into out of fear.

The person that isn’t calling you back or giving you attention when you want it?

Maybe they are just your teacher for what it means to let go of validating your self worth or love through other people’s approval or lack of approval.

It all goes back to you. Loving yourself enough to say yes to peace. 

This week, I invite you to reflect again on the same question as you go about your journey: 

“In this given moment, am I going to choose peace or am I  going to choose war within myself? What would bring me closer to my desired feeling?” 

Start there.

And remember: you are loved.

Video: want to stop taking on other people’s crap? do this!

Have you ever left your house feeling on top of the world?

Happy, ready for the day and smiling for no reason?

And then you get to the office or you get off the phone with someone and after a few minutes, you feel like you need to take two showers?

You feel icky, mad, sad or just “off” and you know you’ve taken on their crap but you don’t know how to NOT?

Us spiritually-conscious folks, tend to have the biggest hearts and also tend to be extremely sensitive to others’ moods, vibes, etc. This is a true gift and you probably know you’re here to radiate light and elevate the planet with good vibes and love. All that being said…

In relationships (of all kinds), if you don’t want to end up feeling like crap for taking on other people’s crap all the time, it’s crucial that you learn how to stay in your own energy.

I want to help you do just that!

In this week’s video you will learn:

  • One of my favorite Angel-friendly negative-energy-be-gone exercises you can do that requires less than 10 seconds once you’ve gotten some practice!
  • The why behind other people’s crap bumping into your energy and what’s really happening
  • You’ll learn of a fun opportunity to take it a step further and learn how to not let other people’s crap influence your decision-making abilities

Watch it below (I kept it short again..wohoo!) and be sure to answer this week’s Soul Challenge question in the comments!


NOTE: If you are extra sensitive and having the mirror only face one-way feels isolating, experiment with having it be a 2-way mirror so you can see yourself on one side and the other person sees themselves. You can also add color and make the mirror a color that feels fun for you! Experiment and report below!

This Week’s Soul Challenge: Have YOU ever taken on other people’s negative vibes or energy? What has helped you to stay positive at work or in your relationships! Share your wisdom or tip with us below!
