About Me

My name is Diauni, and I am 24 years old, a mother, a lover, + a channel for spirit. Originally from Sacramento, CA, I graduated from California State University, Sacramento, in 2015 with my degree in psychology.  A couple weeks later, I found out I was pregnant with my son.  Being guided by spirit, I moved my small family to Medellin, Colombia in April of 2017.  It was there, that I found my voice and created my own business: theheartdoula.  Following is a creative piece I composed to describe my journey, and the birth of my life’s work:
.
.
Freedom came to me in a dream. It knocked the wind out of me and forced me to my knees.
.
 I had no choice but to leave.
.
I knew that I could not stay, for I had nothing left and everything to give. I moved my small family from DC to Colombia, South America when my son was 7 months old. I knew that with all of the lush green spaces, the marks of home, the brown bodies + spicy textures, birth would follow. I went there without an income, without a sure plan, without immediate support or reassurance from the closest of kin. Only my knowing + my heart, were pure places in which I could confide. Everything in me was certain that Envigado was where I should be.

And so I went.
.
I stumbled and tripped over myself more times than I can count. I worked through trauma + rewrote my narrative. I did energy healing and poured salt over my wounds, conjuring them in their ripest forms, swelling so much I burst. I slept in a haze, walking through shadows of my own making. I rewrote history, marking my blood on the walls + permitting my flesh to decompose. For I no longer needed it. I needed my soul, more than anything.
 .
And through this alchemical process of freeing my heart from the weight and the pain and the loss and the grief, I opened myself up to worlds I had designed in the astral realm.
.
I found myself scrambling through ideas I’ve had since I was 6 years old.  I have lived most of my life, adhering to the sentiments, the thoughts, and the values projected onto me. My personal and professional growth + development have sprouted from my ability to connect with spirit. It wasn’t until I began to study the principles and the concepts of spirituality, that I began to also unearth who I was + what my heart actually desired.  I contain a deep, intrinsic knowing, of who I am and what I was called here to do.  We all do.  We are all worthy of this.
.
Contentment. Freedom. Love. Trust. Peace.
.
But first, we have to undergo our own storms, excavate our own darkness, + face many, many mirrors.

 Source led me to this place, to connect with kindred spirits, to share divine thoughts, to practice alchemy every single day. Before I am human, I am soul, first. I come with open arms and a strong heart. 23 year old mother, lover, writer, creator, formless and fluid.

Follow my journey.
