Hi, welcome! I’m Maria,

I was born in Sweden 45 years ago.

A little bit about me;

I was a deep thinker already as a child, and I remember I often thought that grown-ups had really weird ways of thinking and perceiving life.

Maria Erving as a child
Already as a little girl I was aware of the unseen and deeply connected to nature and animals.

My school years were filled with bullying and I was labeled as a “problem child” and was kicked out of school more than once.

I was very rebellious and ran away from home a lot, was out drinking and partying and doing all kinds of mischievous things.

Individuality was important to me and I always fought against what was expected of me.

I was intensely curious about the deeper things in life so I always asked a lot of questions and inquired into what life was really all about.

Even as a child when my peers were reading Pippi Longstocking I read books that I stole from the library about psychology, human nature, and various spiritual matters.

I was also intrigued by and curious about drugs, which later lead me to become a full-blown drug addict.

Drug addict true inspiring story
The doctors told me that my brain was so damaged that I would never be able to be happy without taking meds for the rest of my life. Thank God I didn’t listen to them! I was able to become 100% free from all drugs.

I went full throttle into drugs from the get-go and of course in the beginning it’s all “fun” and you don’t think about the consequences. 

The path eventually lead me to a very dark place and what kept me alive at times when I was in deep despair and depression was an inner knowing that I had a purpose to fulfill, that I was here for a reason.

I’ve always felt a divine presence in my life and I’ve always had the guidance of a higher power even in the darkest periods of my life so I knew there was more to life than what I was currently experiencing.

I wanted to live, not just exist, but I didn’t know how to do that. 

Guardian angel German Shepard
I had a German Shepard and she was able to come with me (which was very unusual!) to the rehab where I stayed for over 2 years.

I was heavily into drugs for a decade or so before I finally got into rehab in my late 20’s, and once there, I did massive inner work that helped me turn my life around.

Around that period I also went back to school and became an NLP Life Coach (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), Master Practitioner and healer (Reiki Master) among other things.

I have evolved a lot since then of course (it’s over 15+ years ago) and no longer work with any of the techniques and modalities I studied and learned back then.

To learn about what I do today and how we can work together, please visit my Sessions page.

Things were moving in the right direction for me, but before I could become who and what I am today, Life took me on a different kind of journey..

Everything in life is for us, and all our experiences mold our character and they show us what we’re really made of.

I’m grateful for every struggle and obstacle I had to overcome because without them I wouldn’t be who I am today.

In my past I struggled a lot, I’ve lived on welfare more than once, and at one point I even lived in a tiny little trailer in the middle of the Scandinavian woods alone with my cats.

At another point I lost everything and became homeless and traveled all over Spain, India and the USA.

Maria Erving in Los Angeles
One of my favorite places on earth is Los Angeles, California. I love Marbella, Costa del Sol (Spain) too. I’m a lover of sunshine and warm weather! 😊

There are so many events that took place that it’s impossible to even begin telling the whole story in one go (I have shared some of it on my blog though).

So much synchronicity weaved beautifully together, all perfectly orchestrated to lead me to where I am today.

Through the intense inner work I’ve done, I’ve awakened to the Truth that consciousness is everything.

Life is all consciousness, and our minds and energy are the most powerful tools we have. 

Your life can become whatever you want it to be, and you can have an absolutely amazing life. There’s no limits to what you can do once you wake up to and realize your inner powers. 

You don’t have to struggle as I did, that’s the whole point of the journey I made to where I am today!

When you learn how to use your mind and energy the right way, you’re able to alter and modify your life as you please and achieve whatever results you want in life.

Life is all an inner game, and when you play it right and get in alignment with the flow of Life, your life becomes right too and falls into place for you. 

Everything you could ever want is in the flow of Life.

It’s in the flow of Life where all the good stuff happens and life can truly be lived with a deep sense of connectedness where gratitude and passion is the default. 

I love what I do, and when I’m not working I like spending time in nature so I often go for long walks on the beach or in the mountains. 

You can find me on all the usual places on social media and although I’m not very active there I respond to every comment and tweet I receive.

I love hearing from my readers too so feel very welcome to say hello and start a conversation in the comments section below any of my (closer to a thousand) articles.

I also invite you to join my mailing list and subscribe to my blog to stay in touch with me.

Talk soon, 😊

All the best, always,
