Hi, welcome! I’m Maria,

I was born in Sweden 45 years ago.

As a child I was always talking to trees, nature and imaginary friends. I’ve always been intuitive and connected to and aware of the invisible realms. 

I loved music, reading, drawing and writing, and I got my first own dog when I was 9 years old after two years of begging my parents to give me one. She was my best friend until I was 22 years old. 

I’m both a cat and dog-person and adore them both equally. 

Maria Erving as a child
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.

My school years were filled with bullying and I was labeled as a “problem child” because I was a rebel and ‘different’ and I was kicked out of school more than once so I never finished primary school.

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

Individuality has always been important to me. I never wanted to be put in a box and I’m not a fan of labels and titles (nor do they impress me). I prefer connecting with people on a deeper level and I appreciate everybody’s unique beingness.

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

Personal development and spiritual growth was always part of my life, no matter what phase I was in, or what experiences I had. 

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

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

The first time I took hard drugs I actually overdosed and was shown images of my future, but I still chose to continue on that path, thinking I could handle whatever it would lead to.

Little did I know.. 

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 the thought that kept me alive at times when I was in deep despair and depression was that I knew 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 I believe she was my guardian angel. She died just before I left the rehab. She kept me alive throughout the years because if I hadn’t had her, the responsibility I had for her, I would not be here today.

I was heavily into drugs for a decade or so before I finally got into rehab where I stayed for about 2 years and did massive inner work that allowed me to turn my life around.

In that period and shortly after I left the rehab I went back to school and became an NLP Life Coach (Neuro-Linguistic Programming Master Practitioner) and healer (Reiki Master) among other things.

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..

My awakening process took off for real now that I was strong enough to handle it. 

In that period I came to realize on a core level of my being all the insights and understanding that I’m sharing with the world today.

Everything in life is for us, and all our experiences mold our character and they show us what we’re really made of so all that I share comes from years of direct personal experiences. 

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
My favorite place on earth is Los Angeles, California. I immediately felt ‘at home’ there. I love 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.

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

Yes, life is truly for us and not against us no matter how things might ‘look’ because something greater is always working on our behalf in the background of our lives.

Through my struggles and intense inner work I’ve awakened to the Truth that consciousness is everything and not only that, but that we can create new realities with our minds and with our energy.

It completely revolutionized my life when I came to know, on a core level of my being, how we can consciously create our reality and that’s why I’m so passionate about what I teach. 

I know, without any doubt, that we are limitless beings and that anything is possible. 

Consciousness is both the problem in life and the solution for everything in life.

We are where we are because of consciousness, and consciousness can always be changed and molded into something else. 

Everything comes out of consciousness, and everything you could ever want is in the flow of Life.

Life can truly be lived with a deep sense of connectedness where gratitude, trust and love is the default. 

It’s in the flow of Life where magic and miracles happen. 

I’m incredibly dedicated and invested in my work 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.

I prefer engaging in a deep and intimate way so I’m not very active on social media (although I respond to every comment and tweet I receive.)

Working with my clients and creating magic in both their lives and my own is what is most important to me so that’s where I naturally also put most of my energy and focus.
