A Woman with Soul: Diana Lindeved Strøm
We met Diana through her love and support of Sjælevenner for livet, the Danish version of The Soulmate Experience.
Tell us about a deep soul connection that you’ve experienced. I was out shopping and was looking at a product and could suddenly feel something in my energy field. I looked to the side I felt it come from, and saw a man who gave me the sweetest huge smile. I could quite simply not help smiling back. I got a good feeling throughout the body. I felt very at home in his company. We stood and talked for a while and while doing it I looked at his arms and thought there was something familiar about them. When I looked him in the eye something magical happened. His eyes were almost shining lights for a moment, and I got a strong sense of an angel. I think it was his soul that I could see. I have since found out that he is a soul mate whom I have been with for several lives. When I talk to him I am always so glad. He is a very sweet and lovely person that I am very happy to be in the soul family.
Describe one of the most soul-opening moments of your life. When I gave birth to my son, I had feelings I had not had before. I felt everything much stronger. The greeting cards, flowers and gifts that I got for my son’s birth—I was more happy and grateful and enjoyed them in a different and much better way then I would have before.
When do you feel your most soulful? When I help family and friends with the problems they may have. I love to help and find something that can help them. It can for instance be spiritual cleaning, healing stones or healing. When they report back that it has helped them, so I am happy and warm inside, and grateful that I have such abilities to help others.
Where have you felt the most in touch with your own soul? Lido de Jesolo in Italy. When I stand with my feet well dug into the sand and looking out over the sea and the fresh warm wind blowing around me, I feel so at home. It is said that salt draws toxins out of the body. I believe it because when I’ve been out to bathe in salt water, I always feel easy and relaxed. I love Italy.
Who is one of the most soulful people you’ve ever known? Louise L. Hay. She is a happy and super-positive lady who loves to make people happy. The first spiritual book I bought was her You Can Heal Your Life. It has changed my life for the better. I have fibromyalgia and the book has helped me to see what the various symptoms of blockages to be dissolved. She has helped millions of people around the world with her books and positive affirmations. I love her positive way of being. As Louise L. Hay says, “You are never too old to learn something new.” As a 60-year-old she learned a new handwriting. When she was over 70 she began to paint.
What qualities do you feel a soulful relationship has? Being able to talk about things in a nice quiet way, and if you disagree you know well that the other person shows that you cannot see in yourself, then you have something to look at, and find out why react as they do. So you can then talk about what we disagreed on, and maybe laugh about it.
What do you feel your soul’s purpose is? To cure myself of fibromyalgia. To scatter light and love in the world and write spiritual children’s books.
Is there anything else you’d like to share with us? One should never be limited. You can do more than you expect. I have fibromyalgia and spent many hours on the couch because I cannot do anything because of the pain. Instead of being bitter about it, I used my imagination to write ideas for children’s books when I lay on the couch. I was wondering how should it ever become a book. I’m not good at spelling because I’m a little dyslexic so it all seemed overwhelming. One day my sister visited me and we talked about all my papers I had. Then she said that she could correct my writing and that my books do not have to be finished tomorrow. So when I had the energy to the work I bring it all into a book. It is now released. so even if something looks hopeless it can be done if you believe it.
I also have a very childish side. I love to fool around with my nieces and do fun things. I will not limit myself, for that is super fun.
Do you have a dream? Follow it. Anything is possible for those who believe.
