Daniela Nikolova

I am Daniela Nikolova and this is my song…..
I am a self-taught intuitive and international soul artist , poet , writer, Integrative Nutrition Certified Health Coach, and happiness guide who believes in the infinite power of the heart. My journey to self re-discovery started after my second child was born when I found myself into a cycle of never ending physical challenges. It felt as if my world was crumbling down underneath my feet. I felt as if that was the end of my story to only discover that the end was indeed the beginning of the new me emerging . The I, who was always meant to be, was and waited to be found underneath layers of what seemed to have become my reality. My healing began once I surrendered to the whispers of my heart. To my true calling. To the voice that came from the deepest core of my being.

I believe that my purpose is not to change anybody’s world. I believe that I am here to guide others in the process of creating their own miracle by finding their own light and experiencing the depth of their true essence – love, pure unconditional love. To believe in it, to savour it and to surrender to the calling of their own precious heart.

Diane DiBlasi

After the passing of her daughter Kiana in 2009, Diane’s life has changed completely, she now has awakened to what is her journey in the thing we call “Life”. Her journey is to share complete and unconditional love to all beings on earth, not just whom she knows but all of God’s creations. For we are all here at this time on earth to learn and know that the most important thing we can do for each other is to love unconditionally, make no judgments or assumptions on each other.  Diane DiBlasi is an Advanced Reiki practitioner, a certified angel card reader, creates jewelry, nature photographer and an author of “Angel in My Lens”, capturing God’s Divine Beauty.”  Website:   hearingyourangels12
