Living Life as a Free Bird Instead of a Caged Bird

Most of us live like a flock of caged birds.

The mind of the false self tends to want to stay in the comforts of conditioning, to play it safe, much like the bird staying in the cage with the door wide open.

Whole families, groups of friends, pretty much everyone around us are all in the same cage, trying to fit in and accommodate to the culture inside the cage, while the door, the door is wide open.

We can fly out of the cage and leave any time we want to.

The biggest limits that we face in life are not from our friends and our family or the people around us and the culture we live in.

It’s not about the relationship we have with other people, it’s all about the relationship we have with ourselves.

The quality of our life depends on the quality of the relationship we have with ourselves.

It’s all about Ourselves.

We put the limits on ourselves, we are restricting ourselves with the stories that we keep telling ourselves about what we think we can and cannot do.

Today can be about breaking free from those limitations and restrictions.

If there’s any area in your life where you feel limited and held back, ask yourself what the story is around why you can’t do something.

What are you telling yourself and when did you decide to accept those limitations?

When was it that you said to yourself that you couldn’t go out there and live life fully and do the things your heart was yearning to do?

Do you remember a specific time when you said No to your heart?

Was it when you finally met that someone who you thought were the love of your life only to discover that they had an abusive personality but you stayed with them anyway because you thought you couldn’t do any better?

Or was it the times and times again when your boss told you to spend more time at the office than with your family and you obeyed even if it hurt your loved ones?

Maybe it was that time you were guided to give something to yourself but you shut your heart down by telling yourself that it was too expensive, that you can’t do it, that you’re not worth it?

Or was it the time when you told yourself the story about being too old, too young, or too _____, so you said No to your heart?

What comes to mind when I ask this? The first thing that pops up, what is that?

Our hearts are always guiding us towards elevation and empowerment.

It always wants to lift us up so that we can be more free and thrive and fly, and not to be caged by our own limitations. 

What is your heart telling you to do today?

Put your hands on your heart and ask it:

What is it that you want me to do, what amazing things are there that you want me to experience in this life, and what is my part in making them happen? Show me, and I’ll do it.”

Life always wants to create more for us than what we allow ourselves to create and experience.

Today, ask your heart what one thing you can do for yourself that will help elevate your life so that you can fly even higher.

It only takes one little step in the right direction and from there Life always shows us the next.

There is only one door, and that is the door of the Truth within you, and it’s always wide open.

It only takes One Step in the right direction and then the flow of Life can open up more and more (and more!), always expanding and taking us even higher.

One step, and off we go, – Soaring higher and higher in our True Life!

Caged bird
The door is wide open.


“Caged Bird”

A free bird leaps
on the back of the wind
and floats downstream
till the current ends
and dips his wing
in the orange sun rays
and dares to claim the sky.

But a bird that stalks
down his narrow cage
can seldom see through
his bars of rage
his wings are clipped and
his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom.

The free bird thinks of another breeze
and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees
and the fat worms waiting on a dawn bright lawn
and he names the sky his own

But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams
his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom.

– Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou poem
Quote from Maya Angelou’s poem “Caged Bird”.

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!

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.

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.

The feeling of peace and freedom is priceless

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.

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.

This journey with you has been amazing

Words cannot fully express the profound impact of my session with you – it has been nothing short of magical. You helped me remove the blockages that held me back, helped me recognize my true worth, and providing so much insight that has been truly life-changing!

Something happened within me that I cannot explain

During and 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.

– A.

Now I know what is creating my reality

I’m overflowing with gratitude and joy! Life has changed dramatically for me after our time together. I have truly realized on a fundamental level what is creating my reality and it has given me confidence for the first time in my life to finally be ME, I feel liberated to be my authentic self!

I had a complete turnaround to my situation

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

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!
