My name is Diane Reile.
I am certified in Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming)
About five years ago, I started on this journey of changing my thoughts to change my life. Before I started to realize I had a choice of how I wanted to feel, I let my thoughts control me. I was buffering quite heavily with alcohol. I was having a lot of anxiety which turned into full-blown panic attacks. I lived like this for most of my life, but as I got older the anxiety increased. I was living my life for everyone else. I didn’t know who I was. I grew up in a home with an alcoholic father and a very dysfunctional, codependent family. My family is very large. I am number 13! My parents were good, loving people. They were doing the best they could do with the resources they had. I only have gratitude for them. I would not be in the place I am in without my full story of where I came from, but I had low self-esteem and never felt quite good enough. I never felt like I deserved good things. I did not love myself. In fact, I pretty much had no self-identity. It took all the anxiety and panic to bring it full circle. I decided I didn’t want to live in fear anymore. I had become afraid of life. I was afraid to change jobs. I was afraid to stay home. I was afraid to drive out of town. I was afraid I would fall down the steps. I was afraid of pretty much everything and had no idea I was making it worse with my thoughts and negative behavior patterns.
Finally, I went to the doctor because my daughter intervened and told me I needed help. I didn’t even realize what my life was becoming. Of course, I was given an antidepressant and was encouraged to do therapy. I did seek counseling and credit it as the beginning. At first, it was just a small change in me. Today, my life looks very different. What started out as a small step became a serious passion for self- awareness and self-healing.
I loved my mom like no one else. I think she was and angel on earth. My mom passed in May of 2016. I had a sadness inside of me like I have never felt before. I loved my dad too, and, of course, it was sad when I lost him, but man, I loved my mom so much. I was struggling. The one healthy thing I was doing back in those days was taking walks down the back-country roads that I live on and connecting with God and with my mom. Then it came. I can only describe it as divine intervention, though at first, it didn’t seem life-altering. I started finding marbles on my road; this same road that I had walked countless times. I started connecting deeper with my mom as I listened to her favorite music while I walked. It made me feel closer to her. I found 88 marbles in all over about a year and a half, and I probably shed 88 times that many tears in the process. My mom was 88 when she passed, and I started realizing the synchronicity in this. As I mentioned earlier, I am child number 13. The last thing I found was not a marble but a bouncy ball with the number 13 on it. I felt that Mom was encouraging me to do something more. This led me to start making jewelry, starting with wire-wrapped marbles. Then I kept going. The more I did, the better I felt. I listened to many inspirational speakers while I learned how to do many different styles of jewelry. I started to heal. I started to believe in myself. I started to live! I wish my mom could see how far I have come and how much I believe in God. I know she knows and is proud of me, but I wish I could see her face. I named my little jewelry business Martha’s Marbles in her memory.
I first discovered hypnosis and meditation on a retreat in 2019. I was instantly drawn to it. Since, I have used self-hypnosis a great deal to change my behaviors, habits and thought patterns. I didn’t always feel that there was more to this life, but I sure do now. I love helping others and feel that I am very intuitive and empathetic. I get as much out of doing hypnosis as my clients. It is a very healing process for us all. I am going to keep growing and learning and sharing because this is the best life I’ve lived so far.
I am married to a very caring man and have three beautiful children and five wonderful, healthy grandchildren. My life is now so full, and I am very happy. I love spending time with my kids and adore my grandchildren, but I also now find joy as I cultivate my own talents and passions and spend time nurturing my own needs as well.
So far, my life has been a work of healing and will continue to be just that. I am setting boundaries and taking care of me with tender love and compassion. I have found that almost everything comes back to self-love and will continue to learn and grow to share my passion with others because I have something to offer, and it is very healing for everyone involved. There is nothing better than a purpose-driven life, and I finally know, without a doubt, that this is my God-given talent and purpose. I’d love to share it with you.
