I told you about the lessons I learned in going bigger in business, and how there were many people who helped me get there.
There’s another woman who helped make it happen, even though she didn’t design graphics, take my photo, or help me shop for clothes.
What she did for me was just as powerful as all of those things. She helped me get past the fear of making the wrong decision and reminded me that I always know what’s right for me.
Trusting my intuition, and not trusting it
I had new photos taken. I loved them, and I hated them.
I had a new header designed. I loved it, and I hated it.
I was getting both a YES and a NO from my gut at the same time. What was I supposed to do with that??
Naming my confusion
Frustrated, I called on Diana Dorell. She promised me she could help me sort out why everything felt so right and so wrong at the same time. Here’s how she helped.
The new header
I loved my new header… and I didn’t. Was it the colors? The photo? Something else? Did I like them, or didn’t I? Several close friends said, “It’s perfect for you!” I wasn’t so sure.
Here’s what Diana said about my internal tug-of-war.
Part of the reason you may oscillate between loving and hating your header is that the colors you have right now represent “speaking up and communicating from a peaceful place” (blue) and “fire, action and unbridled creativity” (orange). They are totally opposite energies, but it really works for who you want to attract and what you can offer.
I LOVE both of these colors for you because you are essentially helping fiery, creative, big thinker, non-detail-loving clients to communicate and get clarity in their businesses from a peaceful place so they don’t burn out.
If that’s what you want to keep doing, they are great colors for you.
She calmed my panic by showing me why the colors were making me feel the way they did. She also made me feel aligned on moving forward with that design.
I’ve never been a big fan of having my photo taken. I got over it and was pleased with what I had. At the same time, there was something off about it. Should I go for a third shoot? That felt heavy, but something wasn’t right.
Here’s what Diana had to say about the photo.
Your intuition is correct. It is the picture that’s throwing off the wow-factor, but you don’t necessarily need new pictures. Instead, zoom in on your face so we see your eyes and your smile. People connect to the energy of your eyes and right now they are hidden, so it feels like you are energetically hiding something.
Your Life Path is 11/2, which means one of your lessons is to overcome perfectionistic tendencies, particularly when it comes to your health and body image. You may tweak this photo and design to your heart’s content and still feel like it’s not good enough. It is good enough. You can stop being so hard on yourself!
Perfection? Me? Yeah, I know. Her simple insight of zooming in on the photo made all the difference. That, and letting go of wanting to look different than I do.
The other area where I was waffling was when to put it out into the world. I had no external deadline. No one was counting on me to put the new design up. I wanted to hurry and make it happen, yet I was afraid to move.
I told Diana I was shooting for the end of August. She suggested August 28, “Media Day,” a perfect day to spread the word about me and my work. I planned for that day, but it turned out that a few details were lingering, so we pushed it out to September 5. Diana said that it was “instant manifestation day.” Sounded like the perfect day to me!
A new tagline
I also knew it was time for a new tagline. When I launched jennyshih.com 18 months ago, “You’re changing the world. I’m here to help.” was perfect. Although it still fits, it felt like I really needed to declare my new mission.
After agonizing weeks of brainstorming, the perfect words showed up: “Business doesn’t have to be so hard.”
I asked Diana to analyze the tagline. Would it work for me?
Her first reaction was that we should avoid “not” in taglines. The Universe doesn’t hear the “not.” But “Business can be easy” just doesn’t feel right, especially since business isn’t always easy! I tried all other combinations or removing the “not” and came up with nothing.
A few days later, Diana sent me her report.
In numerology, that tagline adds up to a 123/6. This is what that means:
1. It is a highly fortunate vibration, meaning it is one of the abundance numbers that we want to see, so you hit the jackpot with this specific phrasing.
2. The 6 vibration ensures that business will go as you want it to. It’s ideal for a service-oriented business.
3. Leave out “Because, meaning don’t make it “Because business doesn’t have to be so hard.” Doing that will change it to a 13/4, which will just mean more work for your life path 11/2. If you want to manifest with ease, I would go with the tagline spelling you have.
The lesson from all of this
The one big lesson I learned from all of Diana’s analyses was that my intuition was spot-on, and it doesn’t hurt to have someone backup your intuition with a totally different approach.
I asked Diana to sum up how these types of analyses do for business owners, and what’s beneficial about having these types of numerology assessments done. Here’s what she said.
As entrepreneurs and business owners, you have a ton of creative ideas floating around in your head. Decisions need to be made on a daily basis, often quickly. While most people who get into business for themselves have strong intuition and instinct for what is the next big thing or what new direction they should take, there is an element that goes beyond simply gut instinct or unrelenting passion or drive.
This element is unseen and it is critical to anyone who wants to launch something new. I call it the “Subtle Force.” Simply put, when it’s your creation or your name that you’re so excited about, it’s beyond difficult to be objective and ask, “Is this really aligned with who I REALLY am and what I’m REALLY about?” It can be really difficult to know if you’re making the right decision.
In fact, there are certain business names, color schemes, and dates that align with who you are at Soul level which can cause clients, prospects and industry people to invest in you and your business. There are other ones that no matter how much you love them will keep you scattered, broke, and wondering if you’ll ever serve the people you are meant to.
Here’s a quick example of perfect alignment: Google’s name adds up to a number that, even before it was launched, proved it was poised for instant manifestation. It also helped position it as the #1 search engine.
Another example where numerology played into success was my own name change, which resulted in my business skyrocketing. I wanted to be an intuitive/spiritual entrepreneur but I was also holding down five jobs! My legal name is Diana Dorel Gutierrez, which is fortunate in Numerology. However, when that number is put against all the other numbers in my chart, it indicates that my business and life feels chaotic, scattered and unfocused. It allowed me to be seen in the public eye, but it was hard to make money on a consistent basis. When I learned how to shift the numbers, I changed it to Diana Dorell. Within a few months, I dropped all but one of my side jobs, moved into my own apartment and was offered a radio show to talk about spirituality and intuition. This stuff works, and since then I will never look at numbers the same way.
As a psychic coach trained in Numerology, I help my clients pinpoint and uncover what they can’t see. It saves them time, energy, and money, so they’re not putting efforts into something that won’t pay off, launching on a day that will make it more difficult to make money, or using colors in their headers or websites that contradict the vision they have to share with the world.
I help my clients shoot the bull’s eye before they even begin, as opposed to shooting in a dark room, like most business owners do. When my clients’ creative genius gets to take center stage with all of the Universe aligned behind them, they shine, money flows, and they’re doing the happy dance at 3 am… instead of staring at their computers all night obsessing about whether or not they made the right decision.
And I will say… that’s exactly what Diana did for me. No more fretting, second guessing, or worrying. Everything said I was pointed in the right direction, so I simply let go…
