Hi, welcome! I’m Maria,

A little bit about me: 

I was born in Sweden 46 years ago and have moved a lot in my life and lived in many different places before I decided to leave the cold weather in Scandinavia and move to sunny Spain.  

As a child I was a deep thinker 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 deeply aware of and connected to the unseen.

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 human nature and 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 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 from all the drugs that I would never be able to be happy naturally, that I would have to take 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 uncommon!) to the rehab where I stayed for over two 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 started doing massive inner work that helped me turn my life around.

Around that period and after I left the rehab I went back to school and became a Life Coach and Reiki healer among other things.

It’s a long time ago and I have evolved a lot since then of course so I no longer work with any of the techniques and modalities I studied and learned back then.

I have developed my own way of coaching and working with energy over the years that is based on intuition and helping others to break through to a higher level of consciousness, wherever their starting point is.

Because there’s always the next level of achievement and fulfillment!

And that’s one of the many things I love about life; I’m a growth-oriented person and always passionately pursuing even higher ideals in my own life as well. 

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

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.

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

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

Maria Erving in Los Angeles
Two of my favorite places on earth is Los Angeles, California, and Marbella, Costa del Sol (Spain). 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 my experiences and intense inner work I’ve awakened to the realization that consciousness is everything.

Life is all consciousness and energy, our minds and energy are the most powerful tools we have, and everything you could ever want is in the flow of Life.  

It’s in the flow where all the goodness of life is, 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 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.

Thank you so much for visiting, I’m thrilled we’re connected and excited for the journey ahead! 

Speak soon, 😊

All the best, always,




Transformational coach Maria Erving
