this can feel hard, but it’s possible…

Today’s Q+A comes from a YouTube subscriber: “Diana, I want to be in a relationship but the idea of opening up to someone new freaks me out. How do you overcome a fear of being vulnerable? Help!”

First off, this is a brave question-thank you for asking it!

Being vulnerable can feel really hard, especially if you have opened your heart in the past and been hurt. (been there, goddess!)

Part of calling in a higher-vibration relationship does include opening up and letting someone see the real you. 

Otherwise, you can attract people who are unwilling to fully commit to you and go deeper with you.

Thankfully, you can overcome a fear of being vulnerable…it simply requires a shift in perspective.

Here are 3 steps to do that and get closer to attracting the type of relationship that makes you WANT to open up even with those niggles and insecurities.

3 questions to ask yourself on V-day (regardless of your ‘status’)

Self Love Sabbatical!

Time required: 10-30 minutes depending on your flow 😉

Materials required: pen, paper, candle optional

Journal questions: Ask it aloud and then answer by hand until you feel empty. Then go onto the next question. 

Q: What do I value? What is most important to me right now?

Q: If I was loving myself at the highest level, what would I stop doing (or at least do less of)?

Q: If my soul mate walked through the door right now, what would I be most afraid for him to see about me? What would I be most excited about?

After you finish all three, look back over your answers and notice any observations in your body or any insights that came up!

3 tricks to make first meetings less awkward

Happy Wed!

I was at a restaurant the other night and couldn’t help noticing a couple to the left whose body language screamed, “We are on a first date!”

You know what I mean right? The nervous tone and stilted chuckle when asking and answering questions.

The stiff body language and constant shifting.

At one point, I think the girl even snuck in a text under the table.

(I know…I can’t help it. This is what fascinates me).

First dates and first meetings of any kind can be awkward as hell.

But they don’t have to be.

Here are 3 tricks you can use to make the whole process way more enjoyable.

Have an amazing rest of your week and if you see first daters out there, have compassion 😉

would you marry yourself?

Happy Wed!

Whoa, that is a loaded question, isn’t it?

But it’s a question I asked myself not that long ago and have also posed to my private clients.

Even if you are in a relationship right now, it’s worth asking…

and noticing what little nigglies and thoughts arise when you do.

I recently did just this…I married myself.

I wasn’t planning on it-like many things in life, the opportunity presented itself and I reluctantly and simultaneously opened up to it.

Can I share the story with you?

Here’s to an amazing week!
