As I get to spend the holidays in this beautiful ski resort in Switzerland, I kept hearing to talk about Angels and more specifically Angel Therapy and Meditating with Angels.
So grab a cup of tea call the kittie cat over and let me tell you about my encounter with the angelic realm...and how working with angels actually helped me launch my business several times over regardless of how insignificant I felt, how unloveable I felt, or how 'not ready' I felt.
12 years ago I was consistently numbing my feelings with a lot of overeating.
I was hypersensitive to the energies in Los Angeles and one way to numb how much fear and pain I felt after losing my mom to breast cancer was to eat as much carbs and fat as I could. Not just a little bit - large, overwhelming meals. I would feel the fear of figuring life out and run to the closest store to numb the fear with a box of chocolate cookies, sandwiches and if that didn't do it, I'd go eat a burrito. Thankfully my angels were watching over me and helped me out. I always felt them around me. Even with the horrible shame and disgust, I felt after overeating yet again. I had felt guided by my mom also right after she passed from her long fight with cancer. But when my mind decided to make me believe I was unsafe, and I believed it, food would be the only medicine. It took many years of me thinking I didn't need any help. Thinking I could 'control' the eating, only to have more uncontrollable eating sprees. Just like an alcoholic with alcohol, I thought I could control my eating until it became clear I could not.
I finally healed doing one thing.
I gave up. I handed the big ball of mess that I was over to a divine source. Something I felt was a lot wiser and capable than I was at the time. I read and re-read a specific prayer every day and every night. I kept a spiritual book by my bedside and just kept affirming I couldn't do it alone, I needed help and I was willing to turn to a higher power for help.
What saved me?
Leaning more deeply into my spiritual program along with Belonging community and service.
I decided to be of service to Spirit and the angelic realm in 2008. And not just a little bit. I took the leap full-on.
I took my waitressing shoes and my acting headshots and tossed both away determined to lean into my faith.
If this divine source was powerful enough to help me quit a devastating eating disorder, surely it was powerful enough to help me succeed and fulfill my prayer to be of service to women.
Within months I received my spiritual name that I used for 7 years as a full-time meditation teacher and energy healer (Danielle Dove).
Within 2 years I was leading my own certification retreats teaching Healing Dove Therapy and Earth Angels in Training - my own healing modality I used on my clients and channeled.
I was doing intuition development retreats all over the US, Europe, including one in Hawaii.
I did 22 sessions in one week with clients all over Paris (I got really good at riding the metro with my angel cards and crystals in my backpack) and I was teaching regular classes at sold-out events in gorgeous spiritual centers in Las Vegas.
I wrote and self-published 5 ebooks.
I still have meditation albums from those days sold online all over the world 10 years later.
That my friend is the result of surrender giving up saying "I don't got this"
