I’m Dyana, and I’m an oracle. I started doing Woke Up Knowing™ experiences in 2011 when I had a waking vision of being in a bed in an ancient castle with people sitting around my bed waiting to hear a dream I had. Years later, I have dreamt in several countries, in languages I didn’t speak, for seekers, artists, scientists, and humanitarians.

I practice an unsupervised oracular tradition that has no formal training. Currently, I have few peers. I believe these things are changing as more of us step out of the quiet and into the light.

This is my service. This is my art. This is Woke Up Knowing™.

Work With Me

I work at the extremes.  I can help in either a short, intense burst, or by immersion. Choose the method that suits you:

  • 24-minute call: $100 (pay, then schedule yourself here); or a
  • 24-hour Woke Up Knowing Experience: $1500 (be sure to add your phone number + e-mail address to the notes field before paying).
  • I begin my work for you at the moment you pay, therefore the fees are non-transferrable and non-refundable. Thank you for honoring my work with your commitment.
  • Oracle-In-Residence appearances work similarly to the Woke Up Knowing Experience, but over multiple days, and for multiple people. The fees for on-location group work is $1500 per 24-hour period, plus first/business travel and all expenses. Call or email me to make arrangements at +1 310 663 6630.
  • I enjoy being a guest on stages, podcasts, programs, or in public art projects. Call or email to invite me.


My work is about finding a way to shifting away from the life-above-the-eyebrows intellectual approach to problem solving. Too often, we limit what we are capable of to what “works on paper.” Get beyond those traps and expand your capacity to discern your natural no and crystal clear yesses that affect your life, career and relationships.
