“We are all sitting and waiting.” This is the message I received from a good friend the other day. She said there was a Robin who had built a nest on her exterior light fixture next to the family room and every day she could watch the bird sit and wait for her eggs to hatch. It was such a great analogy for what is going on today that I had to share this with you.
I consider myself extremely fortunate in this quarantine situation since I am safe and healthy. Other than my hair that is wildly out of control things are fine for us. If I ever had doubts about whether or not I am a homebody at heart they are gone now. I am DEFINITELY a home body. I am loving not going out and staying home and reading, painting, napping, putzing, cooking…..I am happy as can be.
But I know not everyone is. My husband, a definite extrovert, is being patient but I know he would love to be out there doing his charity work much more actively. He is a great example of how to do retirement: put your skills to work doing something worthwhile. I have not yet retired but when I do or if I do, I hope to use his example as my guide.
Waiting patiently is wearing thin for most of you no doubt. How can we keep sitting on our nests waiting for those little robins to emerge when we have things to do? Things we deem important. And most of us need to get back to work.
I don’t have answers for you. The answers lie within each of you. Your own situation is unique, and each solution will be as well. I know people are resilient and clever and creative and so are you. I would love to hear about how you are handling things and managing and surviving right now. If you would like me to pray for you, let me know.
I have been busy taking a coaching course from Brittany Watkins on Tapping for Weight Loss, using EFT. I have shifted so many things in this course and have more to go, but I wanted to share a little today. This is on Brittany’s Instagram account so you can find the entire piece there but here is a little guide line to know when and if you are self sabotaging yourself. This is particularly hazardous during times of anxiety and isolation so I thought it timely:
Signs of self sabotaging:
~Negative self talk
~Making excuses or justifying your behavior
~Not taking responsibility
~Being too busy
~Projecting or blaming others
Any and all of the above can lead us into self sabotage. Be on the lookout for these when they appear in your lives in order to recognize them, name them, and let them go. And if you know how to tap with EFT, you can do so. Engaging the nervous system helps to change behaviors dramatically. In a few months I will be looking for volunteers so I can practice. You do not need to have a weight problem to be a part of this as we will be addressing so many other issues that underlie what manifests on the physical. Be on the lookout if this might be something of interest to you.

Hi. My name is Diantha, like the flower Dianthus, and I love color. Always have, always will. I’ve studied it, worked with it, played with it, wondered about it, dreamed about it, and developed a business around it. My goal was to change the world through color, and although a lofty and probably unachievable goal, my vision will always be one in which all people learn the value and power of color and how it can support us and transform us as we move through our challenges.
To that end I developed a full line of color sprays which I named after my first book: Simply Color (available now at your Kindle store). The 15 Simply Color sprays were developed during the time I was doing a lot of teaching about color and I wanted something simple and easy that my students and clients could use to bring in the color they most needed. You see, the colors of the rainbow spectrum relate to our chakras, organs, glands, emotional, physical, mental and spiritual planes. When something is out of alignment, we get sick, or have issues arise in our lives. Being human beings, this happens frequently as we are here to learn, to develop our souls and to raise our consciousness.
So I learned how to use color to our advantage and have taught countless others how to do that as well. For example, the color of red relates to our ability to ground and manifest. It is extremely helpful to use when we lack energy, or want to start a business, or when we desire to manifest something. Or the color of blue relates to peace, calming and communication. When I was learning to speak up for myself, blue was the color that supported me in learning and then doing that, with grace and ease.
Each color also relates to an organ and gland. So on the physical level it can have an impact as well as emotionally, mentally or spiritually. When we have a challenge in life, we use up the color in our energy body that relates to that color and we need to replenish it. These color sprays are like liquid light, carrying the vibrational qualities of each color so that using the spray will help replenish the colors that have been diminished or lost.
I developed 15 Simply Color Sprays, 10 Simply Color Children’s Sprays, 17 Simply Feng Shui sprays, and have 3 Healing Sprays. I also make custom sprays that target an individual’s needs.
One of my favorites in the Simply Color collection is Rainbow. It is a great general spray for elevating one’s spirits and bathing the energy body in the rainbow spectrum. It smells lovely even though the formulas are not created for scent but for effectiveness.
In the healing sprays, my favorite is Angel’s Song which was originally made for a young male who was in crisis. His Grandmother contacted me and told me what was going on and the result wass this amazingly powerful but gentle spray. Opalescence is another in this series developed to bring joy, creativity and inspiration to creative endeavors. Originally made for an artist, most people who order this are using it for it’s effervescent, magical energy.
Once I created the color sprays, I also developed a full line of Feng Shui sprays. My favorite in this collection is the Wellbeing one which brings in the vibration of wholeness and wellbeing based in the core of our being. This one targets the middle gua of the 9 in the bagua, which is known as Health. And without health, we have nothing.
The sprays contain a propietary blend of essential oils, flower essences, solarized and charged water, gem elixirs and energetic infusions. Each one is infused with the essence of love because I believe that the vibration of love can elevate the consciousness of the planet to its next level of development. So perhaps my original dream of changing the world CAN come true. With many of us working towards that end, I think it will!
