Evolution of Consciousness: Ascending Symptoms

Sometimes I get questions from people wondering what’s going on with them as they had expected the spiritual path to be one filled with joy 24/7 (and it’s not), so I wanted to write down ten (among many other) symptoms that helps us grow the awareness to what is happening and to help embrace the change that comes with any energetic change in our life and selves.

Remember there’s an ego involved in all this, and it will not give you (its home) up easily.

Sometimes the inner transformation includes the most severe inner struggle, while at other times the symptoms of us ascending to higher vibrations can be felt physically, on our bodies.

A lot of things begins to happen when we are ascending to higher vibrations, such as:

  1. Sudden flue-like symptoms that only lasts for a day or two.
  2. Walking into doors and walls; dizziness. This happens when our bodies is adjusting itself to our new energetic vibration.
  3. Changes in prayer and meditation; feeling like you are no longer connected with God or the divine, whatever that means to you.
  4. Having spiritual temper tantrums (experiencing spiritual growing pain)- behaving like a child who doesn’t get what he/she wants.
  5. You may suddenly no longer resonate with your religion or spiritual beliefs. This can be very difficult and disturbing.
  6. Feeling a deep yearning for meaning and spiritual connection in your life but you feel dis-connected and confused, unable to move forward and you can’t go back to what was either.
  7. Itching and tingling sensations in the body. Even ‘crawling’ sensations under your skin.
  8. Days of fatigue and not wanting to do anything, feeling discouragement and even deep hopelessness at times.
  9. Headaches, pressures in the head, and weird/new sensations, especially in the crown-area
  10. Emotional outbursts and sudden mood shifts; old stuff coming up, feelings of grief, fear, rage, profound resentment, even feelings of depression (not just feeling a bit ‘down’ but really depressed), and having emotional roller-coasters going from weeping to laughing in a heartbeat.

These things happens to most people, and are perfectly ‘normal’ (and ultimately positive), and it’s all a part of the transformational process.

A lot of positive changes occur at the same time, but on a different level; such as:

  • Memory loss in a positive way; you find yourself having lost the ability to reference to the past. The ‘old you’ is like a different person all together, it’s like looking back on someone elses life.
  • We start looking younger, feeling more vibrant and alive 🙂
  • Having increased integrity; we speak our truth more, we learn to say “no’, and leaving relationships where we can’t be who we are. We learn how to stand in our own power.
  • Altered states of consciousness and having mystical spiritual experiences. Experiences of awakening. Life-changing aha-moments of clarity and absolute inner Truth.
  • Changes in eating patterns – you may become a vegetarian; you may become more sensitive to alcohol, you may even loose interest in alcohol all together. You may become very sensitive to sugar and caffeine.
  • Experiences of pure ecstasy, bliss and intervals of tremendous joy, love, peace and compassion. You feel an overwhelming feeling of Love to all. Experiences of complete Oneness.
  • We become more aware of our environment and vibes from other people, and also own behaviors and thought patterns. More awareness in everything basically.

Sometimes; when we go through the valleys of life (as we all do at times) and we feel like we don’t even want to meditate, I really urge you to continue meditating and praying anyway, in any way you can.


Transformational Coaching and Energy Healing

 I am so glad that I reached out to you

Maria, you are truly godsend. I cannot describe how happy I am. I have no idea what you did and how you did, but I am truly grateful to you. My words in this email cannot thank you enough. Today is the first day that I woke up feeling as if I am ready to take on the world. I am so glad that I reached out to you. I am truly grateful to you. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family!


It was more than I could ever hoped for or expected

My experience with Maria was more than I could ever hoped for or expected. I had such a positive experience working with her. I feel like a huge weight have been lifted and I have so much more perspective on what I have been struggling with. She cleared up my energy and I feel more myself, more at peace and all around better mentally and emotionally since my sessions with her.

Miriam, Espoo, Finland

Maria helped me recreate my life

Maria is amazing. She is a gift to this world with an incredible intuitive ability. She has helped me to refocus my energy and recreate my life.

C. Málaga, Spain

I needed help in getting my life back

From the first sentence you spoke directly related to what I was going through, I felt so uplifted and light. It still blows me away when I think about it now! Never once did I feel judged, or uncomfortable in any way. I feel like this heavy weight of negativity has fallen away from me and I couldn’t get those awful feelings back if I tried. I can’t stress enough what a gift it is to be able to work with somebody like Maria. Talk about amazing grace!

A calm came over me

I could feel the tension leaving my body and a calm came over me by just being in her presence. Everything flows so naturally with her and my life is more beautiful and I feel at peace knowing I have her by my side. I feel blessed to have her in my life.

Cecilia, Stockholm, Sweden

I experienced a PROFOUND shift 

I can’t put into words how much you have helped me. I couldn’t have kept it all together had I not experienced a PROFOUND shift during and after my session with you.

Maria is leading people to a new way of being

Maria is changing the world by her presence. She’s leading people to a new way of being. She’s rare because she’s able to see where you are at in your journey and can show you the way forward. I feel so incredibly grateful that she has been a companion during this time of change. If you feel drawn to connect with Maria I encourage you to move forward with confidence.

– Carolyn W. Asheville, NC, USA

I have never felt more aligned to my true self

Maria’s awareness of energies and the conditions of the mind are truly impressive. She knows exactly what’s going on. She is so attuned to other peoples’ energy that she just knows where you’re at. After working with her I have never felt more alive and aligned to my true self.

Andrew B, San Diego, CA, USA

I certainly did not expect this

I certainly did not expect this, l have had periods of such intense joy and bliss, Love with an underlying peace that’s been consistent. l don’t understand it intellectually but my heart see’s it clearly. It’s been wonderful, I feel a true sense of connection and being rooted with in and there is just an openness and trust, and a sense of wonder and amazement. I am truly grateful, Thank you. Sincerely.

Mark Neely, Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA

I cannot believe what you were able to achieve in one session

I don’t really know where to start. I find myself at a loss for words. All I can say to you is Thank You. This was unlike any healing session that I have ever been in and I say that from the bottom of my skeptical, over analytical heart who had literally tried everything one could think of. I cannot recommend you enough to other people, you are a gift. I also cannot believe what you were able to achieve in one session, to me it is groundbreaking. Thank you!!!

Rosie Bebawi, Marbella, Spain

Her unique ability to read your state helped me to breakthrough

Maria’s intuitive abilities have been instrumental to the personal growth I’ve experienced as a result of working together. I’ve had HUGE shifts in my beliefs. Her undivided attention, presence and unique ability to read your state helped me to breakthrough and release old patterns and replace them with new self-empowering practices that have truly shifted my life. I would highly recommend Maria to anyone. I am forever changed and forever grateful!

Joanna, USA

You have really made a difference in how my mind works

I don’t know if I make sense, but all I can say is that I feel blissful. And I can’t thank you enough for that. I don’t know exactly how you managed this, but you have really made a difference in how my mind works.

– Silvia, Marbella, Spain

I was taken over by a peacefulness

After our session, something happened within me that I cannot explain nor would it even make sense to anyone. There was a part of me that felt my being been taken over by a real peacefulness that I’ve never encountered before. Sounds odd but it’s the truth.

My life has changed dramatically

Since plugging in to your words of wisdom my life has changed dramatically. You pointed me in the right direction and that gave me courage to continue moving through whatever process I may find myself in and the ability to take refuge in the truth within me.

Can’t recommend her enough!

Working with Maria was one of the best investments I ever made in myself. I’ve seen immediate shifts in my energy as well as learned to work with my own energy and mind. It has been one of the single most transformational experiences of my life. Can’t recommend her enough!

– Chris, USA

The feeling of peace and freedom is priceless

With only that one session and the healing she carried out, I’ve been without grudges, feelings of being hurt or anything on those lines. This feeling of peace and freedom is priceless. Maria is beyond amazing. Had I not experienced it myself, I would probably not believe it. I recommend anyone who is trying hard to be truly free and really start walking down the path of self fulfillment and happiness to book a session with her.

Connecting with you is magical

Maria THANK YOU. Sometimes just by connecting with you even briefly gives me instant clarity, it’s really magical, thank you so much. I trust your guidance so much, I’m just so grateful!

Could not more highly recommend

Maria is the real deal. You will sense it the moment you lay eyes on her. She offered much, much more than I’ve derived from other teachers; highly specific and personal recommendations. It is as though I got a crash graduate course from spirit. Could not more highly recommend!

Catherine Rondeau, Westport, Connecticut, USA

The whole session felt as if it was operating on another level

If you can trust one thing in your life right now, trust Maria. You can trust her with your heart and soul. It’s hard to explain, the whole session felt as if it was operating on another level. I’ve never had that kind of experience before. It just felt so much bigger than I anticipated. I can tell you with absolute honesty and conviction that having a session with Maria is life-changing!

– Lisa, USA

More transformational than any other thing that I’ve tried

I highly recommend Maria! I don’t even recognize the person who started working with her a few months ago. Maria clearly sees what is blocking, stopping or limiting you. Working with her has been more transformational than any other thing that I’ve tried. There have been profound shifts in the way I see myself and the world, so many shifts in my energy and life. I find myself so much lighter and freer. Thank you Maria!

Britt, Marbella, Spain

Profound shift

I can’t put into words how much you have helped me. I couldn’t have kept it all together had I not experienced a PROFOUND shift during and after my session with you.

You are truly a gift to us all!

I can’t even begin to express how much I have gained internally after my session with you. You have been an instrument of peace in my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

– Owen, USA

Something happened within me that I cannot explain

After our session, something happened within me that I cannot explain nor would it even make sense to anyone. There was a part of me that felt my being been taken over by a real peacefulness that I’ve never encountered before. Sounds odd but it’s the truth.

My life has radically changed for the better

I finally know my worth. I feel so different now, I feel lighter, happier and more self confident and it’s easy to let go of people and situations that don’t serve me. I treasure the time I spend talking with Maria and look forward to my sessions with her. There has been big changes in my life, synchronicities showing up like magic and I’m constantly blown away at the business and opportunities that I’m attracting. My life has radically changed for the better after I met Maria.

— Robin, New York, USA

I had a complete turnaround to my situation

The distance healing was amazing. I had a complete turnaround to my situation so many thanks for helping me transform something I had lost hope about. It’s a miracle and the outcome could not have turned out better! If you want to see a real shift not just psychological but spiritual shift, then Maria is the lady to see. I am so glad I found you!

– Sophie P

I’ve never had a conversation like that before

I just wanted to say thank you so much again for our session yesterday, I’ve never had a conversation like that before and it was truly amazing. I could feel weight lifted as we were talking and for the first time my mind did not try to make sense of things, it was all truly felt in the heart space.

Val, Melbourne, Australia

Thank you, Maria!

I couldn’t be more grateful to have Maria in my life. Her guidance and energy is profound!

– Robert, CA, USA

    I heard that when things start closing in and we become removed from a situation that that may be because we are ascending. It’s all too confusing to me.

  4. Wow, this post is old! Must be almost ten years now I think. Fun to read it again 😊

    Yes, don’t worry Ann, if you’re removed from a situation it’s because you’ve outgrown it or it has served its purpose somehow.

    Trust that something else (and better) unfolds and will come to you when the old is let go of.

    It’s when you’re in the transition-time in between the new and the old that things can get a bit confusing but the fog will soon clear up.

    Or what was it that you meant when you said it’s all too confusing to you?

    If you share more details I can help you understand better.

  5. Ann Non Imus

    My heart is involved with this girl and I miss her very much and think about her, last thought of the day and first thought of the morning. I am presently blocked from her because, for one, I told her to do that because I couldn’t bear putting myself through watching her online cam in that situation anymore and I was really starting to dm her too much on Twitter telling her how I felt about this and that. I want to go into more details with you, and then, I don’t. You know? Telling our story over and over get’s old, tiresome, and just makes it seem less viable when we just seem to keep beating that dead horse. Of course, these are just cliche’s and the actuality of this situation is to me, very viable, valid, and real. I go to bed each night just wishing I could ascend right out of this life.

  6. I understand. Heartache is real, for sure.

    You did the right thing making some space between the two of you though, and in this process of distancing yourself from her Life can come in and correct whatever is out of alignment.

    Trust that whatever and whoever comes and goes in and out of your life is always as it should.

    The more we hold on to things/people/situations etc. the more difficult the transition becomes.

    Surrendering the whole matter to the Universe is what is called for.

    When this is done sincerely you will feel a sense of relief and inner peace will come over you and that’s when you’re able to move past this and get to a higher level of consciousness.

    Here’s some of my posts and articles about surrender that can be helpful to you:


    The funny thing is that once we let go fully (of whatever it is for you personally), that which is ours comes to us naturally without us having to do anything at all but to let it in.

    Sometimes people come back but most of the time when people are in these types of transitions they are meant to release and let go so that they can move on.

    People will always be coming and going in and out of our lives and some will stay for longer periods of time (sometimes even for a lifetime although that’s rare) while others are simply meant to stay for a brief moment.

    If you look at it from the other person’s perspective it’s easier to see the bigger picture and have more understanding and awareness about the nature of the relationship so do that too.

    Sometime we can be so caught up in our own sadness and drama that we are blind to seeing beyond our own pain.

    There’s always something larger going on and every person that comes into our life has something to teach us.

    So you can ask yourself questions like:

    “What is the purpose of us coming together?”

    “What do I need to understand about our relationship and this situation?”

    “What am I not seeing clearly?”, “What is this meant to teach me?”

    And so on. Be sincere about it and you will get answers and clarity.

    And then end your inner conversation/inquiry with something like:

    “I hereby release her fully and completely from my life.

    I release her to her highest good, and I release myself too to my highest good. I bless her and wish her well, and whatever is meant to happen will happen. It’s now out of my hands and in the hands of the Divine. Maybe we will reunite some day in the future, but maybe we won’t. Either way I’m okay. Whatever happens I know it’s for our highest good. We are both set free now.”

    And if you still feel grief over the relationship then know it’s normal and natural!

    It can be painful to end a (any) relationship, it’s just important to move on too and as you let go you will be able to do so.

    There might still be sadness and grief for a short period of time afterwards and that’s okay, just keep releasing her (and yourself) to the highest good and things will soon get better.

    Hope this was helpful to you and do not hesitate to comment/ask/share more in case there’s anything else that’s on your mind and in your heart.

    All the best, always,
