Overcoming Signs You Will Never Find Love#4: Get Support
So now, let me tell you about Emma, 38, who came to us for coaching. She saw lots of signs that she would never find love. Emma had an abusive background and was abandoned by her raging alcoholic father early on. Her mother was super critical of her, especially about her not being married. So she wound up believing that she was less than, that she did not deserve to have it all. Emma’s relationship-killer belief was that I can’t have love because there is something wrong with me. Even though she was a very successful nurse. But her biological clock was ticking furiously. Emma so wanted a husband and children before it was too late!
She had gone on 100 dates in the last year, and yet, rarely got asked out for a second or third one. Emma had had only 2 brief relationships, each of which only lasted 4-5 months. She was lonely, alone and becoming more and more depressed about it. All her friends seemed to be happily married with great kids. But not her. It was putting a strain on her friendships. Emma just felt like damaged goods. She felt so isolated and lonely that she even had to go on anti-depressants.
Emma Begins to Transform
The problem was that Emma was trying too hard. Even though she was thin and actually gorgeous, She was very shy and tried to be what she thought the guys wanted her to be. Or what the dating gurus and books told her to be. And the result was she came across as cold, distant or boring.
In fact, we’ve found that guys like real women, women who are utterly themselves. Who can joke and flirt and help a guy to feel attractive.
It is not about your dress size, or age. It is about how you radiate your real essence. How you shine. And everyone shines. It is just that sometimes, like Cinderella, your shine is covered over from fear, or the suffering from old wounds. So you feel you will never find love. This is what was happening to Emma. But then she did our explosively powerful inner Diamond Self work and her feminine power came alive. And it was irresistible. More on Emma’s love breakthrough later! But support was absolutely critical in her case! And it could absolutely transform your love life to the upside!

Overcoming Signs You Will Never Find Love: Emma’s Breakthrough
So remember, Emma, who was looking for signs she would never find love? She worked with her coach to get rid of her limiting beliefs about love. Emma also gave herself the Diamond Self Name, Chosen Irresistible Secure and happy Goddess of Laughter and Light. At first she thought it was ridiculous–almost embarrassing! But then she went shopping and bought some very flattering red flowing dresses that showcased her curves. She started to feel feminine, magnetic, super attractive to men. Emma was shocked when she started dating 4 great guys who kept asking her out! One whisked her off to Paris for a whirlwind weekend–and they had a glorious time. In fact, Emma is now married to him and pregnant with her first baby!
Ok, you may still be thinking, Great dr. Diana, but, “I really am too old/fat/ ugly”. Or I am in a city where all the great men are taken. All I see online are old guys and losers. Whenever you get a sabotaging thought like that, I want you to Visualize a big stop sign in your mind. Or simply say stop in your mind when a self-sabotaging thought threatens to take you over.!
Signs You Will Never Find Love: The Case of Sandy
Next, let me tell you about one of our coaching clients, Sandy, who was 50 pounds overweight and in her late 60s. She was endlessly dieting to get back her thin figure, which she believed she had to do to date successfully. But she would wind up binge eating as she escaped with cherry Garcia into rom com after rom com. Because Sandy saw many signs that she would never find love.
Sandy was a very successful therapist with an international reputation, yet she herself felt lonely, unattractive and like a nobody’s girl in her heart of hearts. Sandy started coaching with us while she was in a complete dating desert–with no guys at all. She did our powerful process fully and let go of those nasty self-sabotaging thoughts about being undesirable, too old, and too fat. Every time a sabotaging thought came up, she said stop in her mind and visualized a big red stop sign, Sandy gave herself the nickname, Saucy, Curvy Minx. Dressed the part and went on two sites.
In fact, she never lost any weight at all!
Now Sandy says, I’ve come to know Dr. Diana as the DIVINE DR. D. because she is quite the magician. She’s not really a magician with a magic wand, much as it seems that way, but has developed a unique set of techniques to shift the mindset for dating and finding lasting love. I’ve progressed from the occasional date to having 5 (!!) very appropriate and appealing men buzzing around me and quite interested! In her coaching you become your own fairy godmother and come to believe in your “Diamond Self” It’s such an exciting and fun process!
Just like Emma and Sandy, you can banish signs you will never find love from your mind. In fact, you can go on the greatest adventure of your love life.
