5 Questions for Diana Dorell
1. What was the ah-ha moment that began your spiritual practice and business?
I've always known I had healing and intuitive gifts, but from an early age, I must have shut those down to fit in with the other kids. Fast forward to San Francisco. I was living my life fairly unconsciously back in 2006/2007, acting and dancing professionally, drinking to numb my intuitive hits and dating all sorts of interesting men that never fully saw who I was. But it wasn't until one evening when I was trying to get a cab to the airport that something shifted in me in a major way.
I couldn't hail a cab and it began to rain. No, pour. And I remembered from my friend, Zack that you can call on ArchAngel Michael to help you in a pinch. I didn't believe in Angels or Spirit but I was desperate, so I looked up into the sky and said, "I don't believe in you but if you exist, I need a cab."
Long story short, a cab came within 2 minutes and to my shock, I got to the airport just in time to make my flight. But here's the clincher. When I got out of the cab, the cab driver smiled and said, "I told you you'd make your flight little lady. You're in Michael's cab." I nearly peed my pants. Michael's cab? I had never said a WORD about angels, Michael, anything. From that moment on, I opened up. I could "hear" and "know" things that I had previously shut down. And then I took a different path. I ended up in Hawaii getting certified by Doreen Virtue to work with Angels. Soon after, I started teaching intuitive development classes in Berkeley, got a radio show and later an online TV show and as they say, the rest is history!
2. What do you do for people? What is the service you offer?
I help women entrepreneurs trust their intuitive in decision-making in love and business. I coach and consult with these amazing powerhouse women who are SuperWomen. They're doing it all. Being wives, mothers, lovers, friends and yes, business owners of their own companies. They are incredibly intuitive, but they doubt themselves a lot, so I help give them specific tools they can use when they have a challenge in their love life and/or business, such as when to launch a program, what name to call it and the words to use in their marketing copy AND with their friend or spouse to help them get what they want (by living authentically and never by manipulation of course). For those who are extra curious about the intuitive arts, I also run programs online and in-person to help them develop their natural abilities. Some use it to start their own spiritually-based biz. Others just want to use it for their own personal growth. It's such a joy!
3. What keeps you blissful, grounded and well? (What is your spiritual and wellness practice?)
I clear my chakras every morning to feel balanced. I make sure I move my body at least 3 times a week. I listen to positive, uplifting music. And I love to read! I'm a voracious reader and going to the bookstore, getting a hot chocolate or tea and entering another world like that really does me good.
4. What is your manifesting "trick" that always work?
I wouldn't call it a trick as much as it's a mindset thing. Focused Intention is what I have found to be the most effective. When we're wishy washy about what we want, we get wishy-washy results. So, if I say, I want 10 people in this program, that's specific. It's measurable and yes, it takes effort on my part to make that happen, while at the same time, knowing that I am CO-CREATING with the Universe to draw the perfect people towards me. It's a dance. A balancing act. Effort and Intention. You need both.
5. Any predictions or guidance for 2013?
I keep getting the number 67 and when I ask my intuition what that means, the first thing that pops up is that in 2013, 67% of successful new businesses will find a woman coming on their team that will be a pivotal factor in their profits. Maybe it's a woman CEO, a woman on their board. I'm not sure. But one thing I AM sure about- the feminine, creative spirit is HERE. It's a collaborative, co-creative, community-driven energy that we ALL have regardless of our gender. As a society, we're moving from a place of living from Chakras 1-3, which is all about material success, power and control into the upper levels of Consciousness that is Chakras 4-7, about compassion, collaboration, communication and connection to the Divine within ourselves. I like to call it our inner SPARKLE! Get ready!!! It's going to rock.
