It’s not about your ability, it’s about your availability

Are you available for God to work through you?

It’s not about your ability and skills (or lack of them); it’s not about being worthy enough to do God’s work, it’s not about being good enough, educated enough, experienced enough – it’s all about being available for God.

Are you?

The ego will tell us that we are not enough yet, that we have to evolve more, know more, suffer a bit more so that we become wise and mature enough, that we need to have more experience and become somebody before we are ready to share what our hearts are calling us to express and share with the world.

I encourage you to not give a hoot about what the voice in your head might be telling you and to not be afraid of making mistakes.

“God knows my heart” is a sentence I often share with people who feel fearful of making mistakes, and to say the words within your heart, “you know my heart God and I know that if this is not for me then it will not happen, and if it is then it will” releases us from a lot of fear.

It’s also important to be patient and to wait for God to move through you and not act prematurely, and always pray and consult with God – and know that all the insecurity and confusion is divinely designed to pull you closer and closer to God (metaphorically speaking as we are It) and the more we turn to God for guidance the clearer we can feel the hand of God directing and showing us its ways.

This is also how intuition grows, we become more and more sensitive to whether or not step back a bit or take a huge step forward courageously.

Sometimes we are asked to stay put and other times we’re asked to take action, and how we learn when to do what is by throwing ourselves into it wholeheartedly.

That’s how we learn. 

Maybe there has already been a lot of trying on your part, a lot of stumbling and falling.

Maybe your faith has been tested to the limits, maybe you have relentlessly continued doing what you consider to be what you are called to do for many years and you still can’t see any of its fruits.

Maybe you are on the brink of giving up or throwing in the towel.

But I want to encourage you just keep following the heart, come what may.  

Not that it is about ‘getting’ anything, that’s not why we should do anything, but what I’m talking about is how faith and trust grows because of our hardships and difficult times; and it can only grow by walking by faith (and not sight), and it is by rejection, hindrance, hardship, challenges and so on that we learn that we can trust God and persevere on the journey of the heart.

It’s a humbling process that leads to complete dependence on God and not the world nor other people. God is the provider and our boss, at least I work for God, and the ways he has provided for me so far are miraculous. 

In times of discouragement there is only one way we can turn, and that is within, so it’s all a part of ‘the plan’. 

A common question for many is:

“How do I know this is what God wants me to do?” and my reply is; we can’t know for certain!

We can only go for it or stay passive and afraid that we might make a mistake.

That’s how we learn. By doing.

Nothing is set in stone until we are actually living it, and along the way we are free to change our minds.

You can do research and investigate into things you might want to pursuit but are not yet sure about and then change your mind later on if you come to realize that it’s not for you after all.

You are entitled to change your mind and not go through with it.

But to begin the journey and constantly communicating with God about what you’re about to do will show that you are only interested in serving Truth and willing to make mistakes for it, that you have the backbone that is needed on the path of the unknown.

God just seems to like courageous people! 🙂

We don’t always know why we feel drawn to do certain things (and where they will lead) and we can’t know anything for certain (ever), we just have to follow the Spirit, and the things we need will be added unto us (as the scriptures says) when we first seek the kingdom of God (the will of God).

If experience is needed, experience will be given, if education is needed, education will be given, but in essence it’s all about availability and not about our ability.

To be available for God is all you ever need to be.

As the little child in the kindergarten we learn by doing, but somehow the curiosity and fearlessness that kids have is not to be found in many adults, and what that is about is because there’s too much references to past experiences and so called failures. Kids don’t have that.

Every moment can be looked at with fresh eyes and the moment we see how we drag the past into the now is also the moment where we realize how doing that holds us back. 

When God puts an idea in our heart we must begin by beginning to work at once.

Yes, there’s the risk of it not succeeding, but then again, it might.

And if success is our goal, then we have to take another look and see if the idea is not created by the mind in order to gain or get something out of it. (The real goal is in the actual doing, not the fruits of the doing). 

But still, however we look at it; we have to just get on with it!

Who cares about failures??

That’s not the point in serving God; life is not about you, but about doing the will of God.

And there is no way of learning an art like making music, or learning how to play tennis, a new language or whatever but by practice.

Yes, we might stumble and fall, but wasn’t it fun trying? Try again!

Let neither the fear that you can’t do it nor the hope that something will happen that will make it easier for you hold you back. It’s about what you do – right now – that really matters.

Not what you intend to do when things are easier or better or more convenient. 

However insignificant the ideas you receive from Spirit appear, just do them.

In a life of continual communication with God what we need and are called to do will be shown, and are being shown at this very moment and the only question is; are you showing up for God? 

When God births a dream, I encourage you to step out in bold faith and start to do the work.

Its about being ready and willing to serve God the moment you’re called to some kind of action.

The eagerness to serve God and all the ‘failures’ (there are no real failures as everything serves us in some way) along the way is what has lead me to surrender completely and there is no greater love for me than God, no one more willing than me to obey the hearts calling than me, and I have been faced with confusion and discouragement as well and if you are too then you can do as I have and simply pray:

“God, please open my eyes and ears so that I can clearly see and hear your instructions and guidance. You know my heart”.

The last sentence is very powerful in all our dealings when fear comes in because it cancels out all concerns and worries about us not being clear, because one thing is for sure and that is that God knows our hearts, God knows our true intentions and yearning to do do his will.

So there is nothing to worry about, because God knows your heart.

Simply present yourself to God and say you are willing (“I’m here God, I’m available; use me!”), and remember it’s not about becoming somebody or not being ready or good enough; God uses us all, all he needs is for us to be available for his work to be done through us.

Our ability has nothing to do with it, nothing at all. 

Open your arms and let God know that you are available and know that the One that will do the work is God and you will be the instrument through which it is done. “I’m all yours God! All yours!“.

Transformational coaching

Book a private one-on-one with me.

Any kind of suffering such as stress, fear, self-doubt and struggle comes from being out of alignment with ourselves and the flow of Life. Freedom, inner calm and confidence comes from awakening to who we really are and integrating our soul and humanness into a state of wholeness and alignment with the flow of Life.

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

Maria is beyond amazing

And 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.

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.

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

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. I have had many years of trying different therapies and solutions to my problems. 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 every cure 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

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

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

I was going through a spiritual shake up

Had it not been for you, I would have possibly fell into madness thinking I was just domestically “crazy” vs. going through a spiritual shake up. So, thank you for helping and giving me the encouragement to stand strong amidst experiences that I didn’t understand.

T. Freeman, Atlanta, USA

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.

I feel blissful

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.

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.

Maria has an extraordinary insight on the process of spiritual awakening

Maria has an extraordinary insight and awareness on the process of spiritual awakening. My favorite thing about her is her honesty and transparency, she shares her experiences without holding back, and that makes her real and approachable.

Gia, Texas, USA

Working with Maria has been 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

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

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

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.

You can trust Maria with your heart and soul

I can’t stress enough what a gift it is to be able to work with somebody like Maria. Talk about amazing grace! 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. If you can trust one thing in your life right now, trust Maria. You can trust her with your heart and soul. I can tell you with absolute honesty and conviction that having a session with Maria is life-changing!

Lisa, USA

The distance healing was amazing

I felt at peace, and 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 and will book in another session soon!
