Sometimes the gift can have strange packaging!
Maybe that guy you had the great second date with ghosted you.
Or the job promotion you thought was in the bag never happened.
It can sometimes be hard to keep an abundance mindset when your current circumstances are less than ideal.
But that’s exactly the time when your spiritual tools come into play.
When you are open to seeing everything you receive as a stepping stone to your personal growth…and ultimate fulfilment, it becomes less personal.
You can let go of turning it into a story about why the Universe hates you.
You get curious.
You look for the things that it’s teaching you about yourself and strengthens your commitment to what you DO want.
Does it always feel comfortable?
Will you experience emotions like anger, annoyance and doubt?
But the muscle you’re building is the belief that everything you receive is there in service to your growth…not out to get you.
How would it feel to experiment with that belief this week?
What could you free yourself from?

Have you ever taken a spontaneous road trip with a friend?
I recently did to go see Tyler Henry, The Hollywood Medium, from the Netflix show, Life After Death.
It was an incredible experience and we stayed in a gorgeous Old Hollywood hotel founded in 1957 by none other than Lucille all and Desi Arnez!
Super classy and definitely from another time.
I felt so at home there and one of friends said, “It’s like you should have grown up during the ’40s and ’50s Diana!”
I didn’t disagree! Ever since I ca remember, I’ve been obsessed with the clothes, the music, the vibe!
The whole trip felt like a bit of a time travel and it got me thinking about a conversation I had with a client about past lives and how they can affect our love life in the present.
Have you ever felt there was an unconscious pattern that you keep playing out in relationships that isn’t seeing you but still feels like you can’t shake?
It’s quite possible you could be reacting from a past life programming that is keeping you a bit stuck now.
Signs unresolved past life issue could be at play:
- a feeling like you can’t move forward from an old relationship, despite every effort you make
- repeating the pattern of dating the same guy with a different face (even though socially. you have done all the work to not do this!)
- feeling ‘stuck’ creatively, like you have hit some kind of invisible ceiling
- and more!
But how do you start to clear the past life issue?
It all starts by identifying what keeps happening that you don’t want to repeat.
And also asking – hey, what if any past lives do I need to be aware of that could be affecting this pattern?
Journal on that for the next week – -nothing at al may come up at first, but be open to receiving nudges and signs and asking away!
And here’s the kicker – observing yourself without judgement.
Getting a past life healing or reading can also be incredibly helpful!
This is something I dive into deeper with private clients if the energy calls for it – to help them get unstuck!
Knowledge is power!
Q: What time periods are you naturally drawn to? Have you ever identified any patters that seem to connect to it?
I’d love to hear from you!
Have a blessed week!
I was speaking with a good friend the other day about the progression of being single, to dating again, to being in a relationship, getting engaged/making a commitment and one of the things I feel like no one really talks about is the death of your single self.
That transition from being with yourself only… to being with yourself and another person.
From complete and total independence…to interdependence.
There is a mourning that may need to happen in that transition that I feel gets ignored.
A death of one identity as the new one takes shape and yo begin to navigate yourself in it, someone else!
And this isn’t just with your ‘relationship’ status.
It could be with your job.
Or your place of residence.
It seems everyone I speak with these days is gong through some kind of death/rebirth!
It’s beautiful, it can feel messy and it will be so much more impactful if you allow yourself all the feelings that arise when going from one stage to the next.
As you’ve probably guessed by now, I don’t necessarily have a neat and tidy 5-steps to mourn your single self post for you today.
Today is about simply opening up the conversation with yourself and exploring:
- Where do you feel like you are transitioning in your life?
- What feelings arise when you imagine releasing one identity to birth another?
- What comes up for you around your current relationships and what do you fear you will lose if you merge deeper with another?
Deep questions, yes!

The other day, I was speaking with a girlfriend and she was complaining about how her partner, who adores her, doesn’t like to give her shoulder or foot massages when she was tired from working-when she tried to confront hime about it, he just said it “isn’t his thing-he doesn’t like feet.”
Regardless of whether or not her partner was interested in giving her massages, I could tell they were totally in love with each other otherwise.
Was all hope lost? she asked me.
It just highlighted a very important value for her-physical touch.
No one person can meet every single need-that’s not realistic, nor is it healthy to expect that.
So, I invited her to explore options-was there something else that would give her the same feeling of receiving a massage from her partner?
At first, she was resistant to the idea, and then she got quiet and said-“You know, I really just want to feel his body near me-not necessarily in a sexual way but it makes me feel calm and connected.”
So, really it wasn’t even the massage itself tat was the most important-it was the feeling of…calm and connection.
She got creative and saw different ways she could feel that way with him that didn’t require him to give her feet a rub and also ways she could give that to herself.
Some of the things she came up with?
- asking for him to hold her hand while she was taking a bath (not every time but once in awhile). He agreed right away!
- for herself: turning off her electronics an hour before bed and getting a weighted blanket
- listening to sounds of the ocean as she wrapped up her work day and slipping into fuzzy socks
- touching feet under the dinner table while talking about their day. Another easy win for him and her!
The fun part was hearing about how much more intimate their relationship felt even after a week of just making a few tweaks.
And what made me laugh out loud was that he bought her a foot and leg assuage thing to use whenever she wanted! (and I’m sure would agree to hold her hand while she used it!)
The takeaway here is two-fold:
- When you get creative with discovering the feeling you are desiring behind a need, it’s way easier to come up with ways to get those needs met.
- When you take ownership of your needs and stop assuming one person to be your need–machine, they are more likely to step up to want to make you happy!
