“Because we have such an incredibly short amount of time in this body and on this earth, we are given the gift of urgency. To not do our work is to forfeit our ticket to life. To living it. To enjoying it. To sharing it. To miss out on the opportunities to do the work of healing is to miss out on the greatest gift life can give us.
The expansion of our soul comes through the depths we are willing to experience in the material world.” – Chani Nicholas, Astrologer
You know I’m all about healing, but it’s not because I think we’re broken and need to be fixed.* Quite the opposite, really. (fwiw, messy doesn’t mean broken.)
I think we start out whole and complete but unconscious, and then we make this wild journey (life) to wholeness with consciousness.
With consciousness, we can rewrite our most limiting stories. Embrace our true power. Feel real belonging. Design our lives around our most intimately held values. Connect with our deepest healing and nurturing intuition.
We have this radical opportunity to treat each moment as the most important moment. To live deep and suck the marrow out of life.**
- Not wait forever to experience what we really want…
- Not “get to it” when everything aligns perfectly (it never does)…
- Not tell ourselves some old bullshit story so we can stay small until someone hands us something that feels a leeetle beeet better and pretend *that* is living…
Your lessons are yours, honey. You agreed to the terms (not the specifics, let’s be clear) and made the pact way back when you couldn’t remember what earthly pain was like.
So, you can do your best to push your life lessons aside, but they ain’t goin’ away.
And tbh doing healing work doesn’t make your lessons any less yours…but if you dig in, you’ll grow instead of wasting your precious life’s energy resisting, avoiding, over-achieving, competing, resenting, etc.
If you embrace your lessons they won’t overwhelm and drown you.
They’ll teach you.
Turn up the light inside of you. Evolve you. (Psst, that’s why you’re here.)
If you want to make the most of this earthly stint, and get wildly conscious and love up on them lessons, then I’m right here for you. (Plus, it’s a New Moon in Virgo…that means we’re in major healing mode.)
Between now and the end of the year I have:
// 3 private coaching spots left. Just 3! That’s 12 sessions of my truthiest, boldest, inner work guidance. We go to the deepest parts of yourself, the oldest limiting stories, the tenderest moments of your childhood and go to work. We move through the past, into the future, and then land squarely in the powerful present moment — the only place real change can ever be made.
> A recent client sent me this testimonial, “Dana helped me find agency in my life where I didn’t feel like I had any…her 12-session course felt like years of therapy but with more guidance and practical tools.”
> Another brilliant human wrote about our work, “The work I did with Dana was an exploratory deep dive into my innermost self in such a beautiful way that allowed me to honestly see myself in a nonjudgmental way for the first time in my life. I left each session with a new positive outlook on how to retrain my old thoughts into a new way of living.”
> Last one…“It’s incredible to look back at my life “pre-Dana” — the habits and narratives I was holding onto that were no longer true, and were certainly no longer serving me… The power of intention to create the life you want cannot be overstated. I’ve moved from feeling fundamentally alone to feeling deeply interconnected.” >> (more on my praise page)
If you’re feeling the call, make a free 45-minute coaching session and consult with me. We’ll spend 30 minutes in your life and then I’ll share the metaphysical and structural underpinnings of my process. Sign up here, beloved.
// 2 VIP DAYS left. That’s ~5 hours of my best guidance, thinking and intuiting with you, inside of your life, love, and work. I haven’t offered these much to my whole list, but they’ve been so rich, that I’m ready to open the doors. More info and free 30-min consult sign up here.
// 1 group program brewing. 4 months, me + an intimate, guided group (as in max 14 ppl) to support you in getting to the bottom of your deepest blocks and create the next-level, upgraded vision for your life. We’ll deal in getting right with your emotions, mastering your energy flow and mindset, clarity in your contribution to the world, and a few more essentials. Power, clarity, and confidence. Yeah.
If you’re interested in hearing more, email me and let me know. I’ll be sharing more details in about a week or so.
Ask yourself this…in 6 months where will you be if you don’t reach out for support?
If you’re being honest, you could be in the same place.
Do you have that kind of time?
What is more important than your life? Your peace? Your happiness? Your contribution to the world? Your authenticity?
Think about it.
* I do believe that we live inside of many broken systems. But I don’t think that we can transform those systems externally without doing the work internally/ourselves. We need the spiritual fortification to shift those structures. We have to embody the transformation in order to advance it. That’s why inner work.
** Oh, just paraphrasing some Thoreau here. Actual quote from Walden,
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practice resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms.”
