A MASTER OF CONNECTION AND THE HEART
how did you get here diem?
It all started with my passion...
I genuinely love helping people. I truly believe that one of my superpowers is my heart and its ability to love and empathize on a deep level.
After many years in corporate jobs specializing in hospitality and fashion, I woke up with a feeling of dread everyday I went to work. It was a horrible and debilitating feeling to not enjoy what you do even though you knew you were good at it. I thought since I was good at it - since I was good at something - that this was all I was meant to do. And I did it for years... Not realizing it was chipping away at me until I no longer wanted to do it anymore due to burn out - both physically and mentally.
In these fields, a lot of my value was based on what I was able to perform. I felt like a dancing monkey performing in hopes to convince others that I deserved this money, or salary, or position. And perform I did! I built a lucrative career but in the end, I felt so sad and numb inside. Empty...
However, there was huge reward in this experience.
I loved my team - still do. I helped them grow in their positions and their careers. Guiding them so that they were able to learn and expand in such a way that they could build a solid foundation for themselves. Even after many years, I still get the occasional phone call, text or a DM saying that they "miss working with me." I then think to myself "I must have done something right..." And that's all we wonder sometimes in life right? If we had an impact somehow in this physical life... If we were able to help and impact others in a profound way.
This snowballed into a much deeper journey of understanding what my purpose was in this physical life. I know it wasn't for some, but Covid was a blessing to me. Since being on my own at such a young age, this was the breather I finally had to just sit and ask myself what I wanted after 19 years of just go go go survival mode. And believe me, having a moment of stillness like this while others were dying and struggling through a very difficult pandemic, was intense in that I felt guilty for feeling like I finally had some peace.
But in this stillness, I learned more and more about what connection really is... For people and for myself as an individual. After being a nomad for a year, connecting with people along the way, I finally realized a piece of the puzzle that was missing:
We all yearn for connection.
The ability to connect on a deeper level with others and the world around us. The ability to understand each other on a non-surface level. Though some of us are really good at being alone - me being one of those people - as humans, we aren't meant to be alone or isolated. We all deserve and want to be loved, seen, heard and accepted just as we are.
I CAN'T IMAGINE DOING ANYTHING ELSE
This journey led me here... To fully embody that I am a connection and alignment coach. I provide a safe space and platform for those to come as they are and share themselves. To open up their hearts and minds to further understand their roadblocks and the things they are having trouble letting go of that is preventing them from connecting with all relationships in the aspect of their life experience - romantic, family, work, friendships, and themselves. And as simply as offering a safe space to just listen to them...
Sometimes people just want someone to talk to.
I LOVE WORKING WITH PEOPLE WHO
One of the many lessons I have learned in life, is that in order to build healthy relationships, you must first have a healthy relationship with yourself. This begins with a foundation of self love, awareness, openness, vulnerability and communication.
Meeting those that value solid foundations when creating relationships, like the one you build with YOU, inspire me.
In this inspiration, I want to help others build these foundations so that they feel rooted. Rooted within themselves as the foundation becomes grounded and solid for them to stand on.
