Conversations with Dalandra Young

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dalandra Young.

Hi Dalandra, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I started creating my Noonimals characters over 34 years ago when I was 14 years old. I finished all of the characters in my early 20’s and I always knew that I would use them to help children overcome fears and concerns with everyday situations they can relate to. At the age of 26, I became suicidal and curious as to what was real when it came to religion and I started my path of unlocking answers to questions I wondered for a long time. While raising my children and experiencing one challenge after the next, I went off my path slightly and my quest to learn was put on hold.

Several years passed and I was led to information on the Law of Attraction. I started experimenting and applying steps I learned throughout the years from audiobooks and online teachers to my everyday life. I began to see validations and proof that what I focused my attention on showed up in my experiences. I developed a habit of paying attention to my thoughts and feelings. Whenever unwanted thoughts entered my mind, I would replace them with something that made me happy. My new ways of thinking changed my life. I realized I could use my characters to create a fun way to ease the journey of life starting at a young age and ultimately getting rid of the question that most people ask when they get older – Why am I here? I now use my characters to teach children mindfulness, well-being, and the Law of Attraction.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It has been a bit of a bumpy road in my life along the way until I learned how to take control of my own mind and stop worrying. Now by following the steps in my book, I live a life of bliss.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I am a 2x International Best Selling Author of my books called Noonimals. My latest book is called Noonimals – Believe and this is the perfect book for a parent/child or teacher/student that introduces – The Law of Attraction and seven incredible steps in becoming the best version of yourself. Five friends that are battling their own insecurities use imagination to travel into another dimension called Land of Noonimals. Here lives an exciting new breed of characters that teach them through adventure how to do, be, and have anything they want if they BELIEVE. It is not often to see children’s books use the Law of Attraction as a focal point for any teachings but I believe my Noonimals are a perfect tool in teaching mindfulness and self-esteem issues that children can relate to and understand. I am proud that I never gave up on my dreams and the difference between me and some others is that I believe I can do anything I put my mind to. I believe the outcome that we have in our lives is all based on if we believe we can do something or if we believe we can’t. Either way, we will be proven right.

Risk taking is a topic that people have widely differing views on – we’d love to hear your thoughts.
I believe life is about taking chances and taking risks, especially if your being infused by a higher power. I feel instead of me saying “risk” because that may put out a vibration of worry, I will prefer to say ‘Leap of Faith” since I am trusting that I am being guided correctly, especially if it feels good.
