how to stop feeling invisible

One of you lovely souls who shall remain anonymous asked me to address the following question from last year’s feedback form:

Q: Diana, can you give me any tips for how to stop feeling invisible in my life?  I feel like other people just draw attention naturally to themselves, but I’m not like that and I would really like to make new friends and have a relationship that lasts past two dates.

A: First off, thank you so much for your bravery in asking this question. Feeling invisible when you want to connect with others socially and romantically can feel incredibly frustrating.

Here’s a question to consider asking yourself that is something I wrote about in last week’s blog in more detail.

Q: Close your eyes and imagine that you walk into a party or you walk into a first date. Immediately people want to come up and talk with you and engage with you. If you’re visualizing a date, they compliment you and ask you personal questions to genuinely get to know you better. What happens in your body as you imagine this? And secondly, what are you afraid to share with them or afraid that they will ask you about?

Write those down. Often times when we feel invisible it is because deep down, our subconscious fears are driving the bus.

And here’s the big take-away:

When we feel invisible, there is a good chance that the perceived pain of revealing a part of ourselves to another is greater than the desire to have the relationship we say we want.  TWEET THAT!

And as long as that is true, you’ll keep feeling invisible.

If you’re ready to change that, the next step is to look at the list of things you wrote down and start accepting and loving yourself, even the things you are scared of people finding out. Once you can accept yourself, flaws and all, you’ll be radiating a different energy that says, “come talk to me. I’m comfortable with myself as I am and you are free to come as you are too.” That’s magnetism!

Thank you so much for asking this important question and please keep in touch and let us know how you are doing after checking out this exercise!

Do this before 2016…the easiest way to bring in a miracle

60cea576-3164-4e2a-b6f7-a372004875d8Confession: I’m writing this in my pajamas and fuzzy socks.


And my new soft hot pink hoodie.


It’s way overcast here in the desert and I finally surrendered to the quiet and darkness of winter here in the States.


I gave myself permission to meander through my morning with no set agenda.


To tune into what my body wanted and what pulls at my heart…and what doesn’t (even if it has been on my to-do list for the whole week).


It’s one of the first assignments I give my private VIP clients; we call it scheduling in non-negotiable “Goddess Flow” time.


It’s meant to restore your creative juices, rest your logical, overdriven brain and reconnect you to your spiritual center.


From that delicious space comes the feeling of what you want to create and pull in next to your life.


Your “vision.”


Most of us have been taught to do it backwards.


Write down to-do’s and tasks and goals….but the problem with that is that if it’s not connected to something you truly desire, like really really desire, it’s super easy to slack, come up with excuses to not stay the course when things get wobbly and basically, stay exactly where you are.


Reframe self-care:


Slowing down not just for indulgent pampering time, but reframing it to be a necessary preparation to birthing a desire is a totally different energy, isn’t it?


How would it feel to say, “I’m having Goddess flow time right now so that I can hear what steps I might take towards pulling in a new relationship….or a new client…or a new job, etc”


Suddenly that slow down time has a purpose, a bigger WHY.


It’s a powerful place to start manifesting and because the energy is so strong now, I don’t want you to wait until January to put this into place.


So I invite you to bring it into your life now.


Diana DorellThis week’s Soul action: Take out your calendar. Pick one block of time each day (or each week, it’s up to you!) where you will have “Flow” time. Open space.


To let your Soul breathe.


To actually tune into what your desires are, so your brilliant mind can help fill in the blanks of what you can do to birth them.


It could be 10 minutes, 1 hour or the whole day. Choose a starting point that feels easy and then build up.


It’s so easy to say, “I don’t have time to do ‘nothing,’ Diana! I have responsibilities!”


I hear you Goddess.


But I don’t buy it.


We all have responsibilities and we all have 24 hours in a day.


It comes down to this.


Do you want life to lead you and have you be at the mercy of your circumstances?




Do you want to be a Goddess and co-create a fabulous life with Spirit that honors you and supports your dreams?


The choice is yours!


I’d write more, but I’m signing off to go to the bookstore and read magazines.


After all, it’s my Goddess flow time 🙂


Have a fabulous holiday however you choose to celebrate and we will talk soon, okay?


Love and Blessings,

it’s time to let go

Happy Tuesday and Happy December!

How are you feeling?

Have you been feeling that deep knowing inside of you that things in your life are about to change for the better?

Like everything you thought you knew about yourself is up for re-negotiation and revision?

If so, you’re right on schedule.

December’s energies are all about:

  • purging the past (especially with long-standing family-related issues)
  • self-love and self-compassion
  • receiving gifts (tangible or not) in exchange for stepping into your Truth and being bold in what you allow in and what you say buh-bye to.

Ring a bell?

In short: it’s time to let go.

Let go of control.

Let go of the need to have other people’s approval.

Let go of the mean thoughts that are not loving to yourself.

Let go. Let go. Let go.

Quick story: For the past few days, I’ve been home with a stomach flu. I had to cancel appointments, be still and simply allow myself to heal.

The stomach is all about letting go of the past (I mean…hello!) and needless to say, lying in bed forced me to call upon all the tools I share with you guys.

Calling on the Angels to help me feel supported.

Giving myself Reiki every morning and night to soften my belly and my mind.

Journaling like my life depended on it so I could shift my focus from the pain to the pen.

And most importantly, letting myself see the Truth about what’s important to me and what it’s time to let go of.

One of the biggest things that is important to me is to teach and to help you feel re-connected to yourself and your Truth, especially in relationships.

So…I’m offering 3 opportunities for us to connect in the next 2 weeks. (scroll down!)

On the letting go side, I found that stuff just kept coming up that I didn’t expect. I got really emotional.

In fact, it was pouring out so much that I even made a “Letting Go List”.  

Some of the things that ended up on there include:

:: letting go of weird decorative objects I was keeping in my home because they were gifted to me but that aren’t my style

:: letting go of making elaborate excuses to avoid saying “No” to invitations I have no desire accepting. (a graceful No, thank you is sufficient!)

:: letting go of guilt around setting boundaries around my time and space (especially with family)

:: letting go of engaging in disempowering conversations or listening to gossip (there are better ways to “bond with me!”)

:: letting go of one-way street relationships that leave me tired and feeling used.

This week’s invitation: Make a Letting Go List

What’s on yours? Take a pen and paper out and let your heart lead you.

When you’re done, say each one aloud and tear it up or burn it!

It’s time for you to free yourself.

Are you game? Hit reply and share one with me!

Let’s have fun! “One thing I let go of is…”

how to ask for a sign that you’re on the right track

Have you ever asked for a sign that you were on the right track?

Or to get extra reassurance that it was all going to be okay?

I ask for signs for everything!

Like I mentioned last week, working with the Angelic realm to help me navigate the world of love and life has become second nature.

It’s one of the first things I teach new students of intuition and my private clients.

Because surrendering can be really tough.

Doing it all yourself can be really frustrating.

{Quick reminder: I have Angel to the Rescue readings at the special holiday rate available until tomorrow night! If you’ve been wanting to get a session with me but haven’t because of circumstances or timing, this is a great opportunity for you. Click here.}

Can I share a quick story with you?

Asking for a Sign: True Story

Awhile back, I was going through a particularly rough relationship patch.

I had made a decision and wasn’t sure it was the right one.

I pulled cards until I was blue in the face and felt restless and irritable because none of them were giving me what I wanted to hear (note: it’s super hard to be neutral and objective when  you are pulling Angel cards for yourself around something that’s incredibly personal to you!)

And I remember standing in the kitchen, taking a deep breath and closing my eyes.

I felt the tears coming on and when I got quiet, I heard a whisper that said, “Ask us for a sign and we will let you know that we are with you.”


I was so wrapped up in trying to wield relief from the emotional pain I was feeling that I forgot to ask the Angels for a sign like I usually do when I’m in a pickle.

So I did.

And in less than 24 hours, I drove in to find a beautiful feather waiting for me right by the car port.


Now, to be fair, sometimes a feather is just a feather.

The difference is in how you ask …how much you believe….and how you feel.

When I asked for the sign, I literally wanted it to be in front of me. I said something to the effect of “Angels, thank you for sending me a sign in the material world that I can easily understand.”

I also believed with every fiber of my being that it would be delivered at the right time, my senses were super heightened when I reached down to pick up that feather.

I felt chills throughout my body and peace and warmth around my heart space.

That’s how I knew it was my sign.

Otherwise, I would have felt totally neutral or maybe amused, but it hit home in a place that I needed.

That’s the power of calling on the Angels for assistance.

So in short, this week, are you open to asking the Angels for a clear sign in the material world that you can easily understand to help you feel supported?

Give it go and drop me a line on the blog!

PS: If you have something weighing on your heart right now that you KNOW deep down you could use support with, consider investing in an Angel to the Rescue reading while they are available at the special holiday rate!

Is it “too late” for you? A true story about the power of love + how to stop this belief

It’s ‘too late’ for me to go for my dream. I need to be more practical.

It’s ‘too late’ for me to attract love because I’m too old and/or I don’t have enough time.

It’s ‘too late’ for me to admit how I REALLY feel. We broke up so long ago. I don’t want my friends to think I haven’t moved on yet.

Have you been guilty of any of the above self-talk? (I said YES to all three btw)

If you said YES too, it’s ALL GOOD. Breathe!

*I have something that can help you (and others world wide) if you’re having trouble with this, so stay with me. First, a story.

The Story:

Last year when the earthquake hit Japan, I had recently broken up with a guy we’ll call Mr. T (Tokyo-I know, original 🙂

I had read about the destruction via my personal news anchor aka my dad who sends me critical news in the form of two line emails (I don’t watch TV or read the news a lot and he worries that I’ll miss something 🙂

I was still hurting from the break-up (I was supposed to go visit him in Japan and we broke up the week before my flight..i know..GREAT timing, right?)

Thoughts like ‘it’s too late’ for me to tell him how I REALLY feel because then he’ll think I’m whiny and desperate. It’s too late to show him I still care for him, even though it didn’t work out. Anyhow, when I saw the news, I hadn’t talked to Mr. T in a few months and I’m kind of embarrassed to admit that it took a catastrophic event for me to get out of my own way.

Divine intervention ensued.

I was awoken at 2:30AM with this pulsating in my gut. I had been crying and was prompted to go to Facebook and lo and behold, he was ONLINE. Before my logical mind and Ego feminine pride could kick in, I just IMed him. Very simple.

“I love you. I’m so glad you’re alive and you’re okay.”

Tummy happy.

His reply?

“I love you too. Thank you. I okay.” (His English wasn’t perfect but it was brilliantly authentic).

So freakin simple.

There was no talk of reconciliation. No awkward so “how are you faring since we’re not you know, a couple?” and certainly no fishing for details of each other’s dating lives.

It was just human to human.

Or Spirit to Spirit.


Real LOVE.



And best of all, that one simple action to override my pride and follow my intuition/instinct to let him know I cared (without any agenda for myself) kicked the

“It’s too late” excuse in the ass.

FYI: There is an epilogue to the story at the bottom of this email.


*******Here’s the deal: TRUTH TELLING TIME

It’s NEVER too late to trust your intuition and follow through on what it’s telling you.

It’s NEVER too late to surrender your Ego and pride in the name of authenticity.

It’s NEVER too late to SHOW UP FULLY. Bruises. War wounds and all.

So, ask yourself this:

1) “Where have I believed that it’s TOO LATE in my life?” (Go with your first instinct here. Note: It’s usually the one you’ve been avoiding the most) 🙂

2) “What action however small could I take RIGHT NOW to flip the script?

3) GO DO IT. (And get off Facebook already unless that’s your action and then by all means, rock it sister!)

Epilogue + An Invitation

So, that night at around 2:40am, Spirit guided me to resurrect a guided meditation from hiding which I channeled to help people feel less alone and more able to move on from the ties that kept them from finding love, “Journey to Love with ArchAngel Jophiel.”

I had stashed it away on my desktop because I felt it was “too soon” to show to the world something that wasn’t PERFECT (that’s a whole other issue for another night)

Again, kind of out of body, I put it up on my online store at the time. And I gave away a portion of the proceeds to the Red Cross to help Mr. T’s peeps and Japan.

I was so scared to write that email and put it up. It wasn’t “ready!”  And overnight, so many people from all over the world wrote responses to the meditation and also their own stories on love in response to the one that I’ve shared that inspired its birth.

My Invitation:

1) Do YOU have a similar story about turning around an “its too late” in love?
I’d LOVE to hear from you. Send me an email with your story.

2) Get your fix:
If you’re wanting to bring in love, need to forgive yourself/move on from a love or just need to feel HAPPY and LIGHT, I’ve resurrected the famous love meditation for you to purchase. (A portion will ALWAYS go to the Red Cross as that’s how it got its legs and I’m a sucker for tradition sometimes 🙂

Here’s to love and YOU!
