Are you in a spirit waiting room? 3 things you can do!

Are you in a spirit “waiting room?”

You know you’re in a spirit waiting room when:

    • you feel like you are in-between exiting your old life and entering a new, unknown one

    • you feel pressured to make a decision about your new life but every time you try, your energy gets scattered

  • You have a deep desire to just escape your current situation or you crave lots and lots of quiet time (even if you’re very outgoing and social normally!)

I call it the “Waiting Room” because it really can feel like being in a doctor’s office. You aren’t usually alone in the waiting room, but you feel like you are. There are those well-worn, boring magazines that are usually not what you want to read, but it makes the time go faster and you can avoid making lots of conversation or eye contact with the other people there. You may have to fill out forms to share what is going on with you, but you can’t seem to find the right words (or you may even feel compelled to write, “I don’t know!”) and you may not know why it’s happening or what the diagnosis is going to be. It can be unnerving and uncomfortable.

But it’s a necessary part of the process of getting to the other side of the counter.

 And when it comes to your emotions and your relationships, the waiting room is a time-out AND cause for celebration.. See, if you’re in the “spirit waiting room,” it’s your Soul’s wake-up call that something is getting re-arranged inside of you. Shifted. There may need to be more space for what you say you REALLY want and that entails letting go of what is no longer YOU.

It’s not easily described in words and the answers are never black or white. In fact, during this waiting room period, you may find yourself writing down more questions than insights. And that’s perfect!


The good news is that the Waiting Room is TEMPORARY.

Discomfort is TEMPORARY.

But so often, we want to just skip the waiting room, hop over the counter and just ask for the prescription!

I want to know NOW NOW NOW! Just tell me what’s going to happen so I don’t waste my time with…dating X person, entering into X job, or stressing out about when X is going to happen so I can finally be happy.

Sorry. Your Soul is wiser than that and it just doesn’t work that way!

 Yes, we are here to get clarity. Insights? Absolutely. But above all, we are here to EXPERIENCE and GROW.


And if you’re constantly “popping pills” aka trying to take detours to avoid the Waiting Room, you’re just going to wind up attracting in the SAME lesson with different people, jobs or situations in the future.


Popping Pills Can Look Like:


    • Taking yet ANOTHER class/workshop/certification so you don’t actually have to ever go out there and live your dream

    • Staying in a stagnant relationship OR avoiding long-term relationships altogether because you’re afraid of what could happen if you allowed yourself to really be vulnerable

  • Filling up your calendar with busy work, housework or social events so you don’t have to face what’s really going on with your finances


Now, I just made up the 3 situations above, but let’s face it. Those are the big ones: Life Purpose, Love and Money. And they all circle back to your relationship with YOURSELF and what you really really want. Peace of mind. Joy. Confidence and trust in YOU.


So, what CAN you do in the waiting room to avoid losing your mind? (actually that would be good, because then you’d finally hear your intuition!) Just kidding.


<S.A.D>  3 AWESOME Things You Can Do In the Waiting Room 


Give up trying to have the whole picture of your new life. Michelangelo said that when we sculpted David, he was freeing the statue from the stone. He didn’t know every single curve ahead of time. He surrendered to the energy of his hands and his intuition. Let go of having to know the end. Focus on the here and now.


It sounds basic, but are you feeding yourself nutritious food or are you escaping into comfort food? Are you taking time to move your body or staying in one place all day? Even 10 minutes can make a world of difference! You’ll also be able to tune into the subtle frequencies of your intuition when you’re not being still, lost in negative, fearful thoughts


It sounds hokey and simplistic, but this really works. One time when I was in the Spirit waiting room freaking out about a guy I was dating and what I should do, I literally allowed myself to space out in a park everyday. I just sat there. Every other day. And stared up at the sky. Or the trees. Very Ferdinand the Bull.  Sometimes nothing magical happened, but I felt more connected to myself. But one day, I came back home and had to write down a 4-page download I received for a new program I wanted to launch that I could never have seen if I had been “thinking” it into existence. And soon after, the relationship in question was no longer a question and I had a great heart-to-heart.

    Did you right this just for me this week? Aww you shouldn’t have! HAHA….So Yes, I have DEF been experiencing a Spiritual Download. I kept getting the message to stop, trust, and just be – but I kept going…flipping through the magazines and searching for answers. Then I ended up with a swollen knee. The universe was very LOUD and CLEAR this time (esp since I could barely walk)….STOP, REST, TRUST! So I spent most of last week resting and I still feel that I need to rest. However I did sell a package yesterday WOOOOORAY and recently got 2 client referrals double YAY… so I feel the energy shifting! I will try on each of the “SAD” the one that’s calling out to me the most is daydreaming in nature! Thanks so much for this weeks blog and all the space, love, and support you give :0) I appreciate you! <3

      My pleasure Lynsey! Love that-yay for referrals and selling a package when you are simply BE-ing at your Body’s urging. When we listen to our body, things flow. When we don’t, well, you know what happens! Be sure to check back in here and let us know what shifted as you check out SAD this week! Much Love, Diana

    I am in the waiting room now and have been for the last 10 days or so (maybe more). I was so busy prior to the waiting room, that I was starting to loose myself. In order for me to slow down and stop, my body burnt out and I got an infection. I literally had a hard time moving from room to room and all I could do was rest.

    I knew, that this was time for me to stop and allow myself time to go just BE.
    There are times when the energy running through me is so strong, I get anxious if am not allowing it to flow. Sometimes I feel like am going to burst!

    But have just been soaking it up! Soaking this precious time up. It feels rare and special in a way to have all this time to wait. Yes I do get impatient sometimes but those are the moments I dream…

      Thank you for sharing this Caitlin! Yes it sounds like your body created the infection so you could pause and rest /tune into the NOW vs. the future too much. If you do feel the need to do something with that intense energy, one activity that works really well for me is painting! Especially water colors. Something about color and water (our emotions) that work very nicely. Keep us posted! <3 Love, Diana

    What I meant to say at the end way, if am getting impatient for the future to arrive, I will start to dream about it, visualise it, feel it and let go…

    Hi Diana-
    Thank you for this blog. Lately(last year and a half) I have been shifting a lot and had a tremendous amount of growth and growing up around relationships, and the awesome and delicious “One” hasn’t shown up yet…but recently I have been in a strange place. Unclear, and unformed feelings/desires/visions, do I really want a relationship? I can’t feel it anymore. I have felt like “what is this? where am I? what do I want? and where did my clarity go?” Good news is that I haven’t panicked! Yay

    So, I am going to trust, try not to see the whole picture, and let myself day dream. After all i’ve been through i deserve and fluidity and letting go. Hopefully I can make it/allow it to be fun;)

    also, I relate to the part where u were confused about a relationship you were in. Lately when I felt like that about a person or situation I have been letting go more, and not trying to wrestle the confusion to the ground and get drained.

    Thanks- Rachel

      Good for you Rachel! Yes, daydreaming is a wonderful tool that can help us slip back into our Inner Child and Feminine energy. Letting go is a constant practice and just the fact that you stated it here says your Spirit is READY! Enjoy the respite and thank you so much for being here with us Goddess! Love, Diana

    I am currently in this situation. I lost the “love of my life” last week after 3-1/2 weeks in the hospital. I was there with him until his last breath. I have spoken all the words that I want to tell him and now I don’t have any words to say. I came home all alone and just stared outside the window. I realized that with all this powerful emotions getting to me, something get chipped away. It’s part of becoming the better version of my life’s purpose. It aches but it is temporary that’s true. Soon I will say, been there, done that. Here’s to a wonderful life of freedom, joy and peace.
