Challenging but also the most blessed times

It’s through difficult times that our true spirit reveals itself.

You might not have anybody on your side that believes in you, or to even encourage you when things are really challenging – but as you have the courage to stay true to yourself your true nature will come forth and show itself to not only you but to those around you who maybe never believed in you or who thought less of you by defining you by what you had or did not have.

Sometimes I receive an email from someone that shares with me how profoundly my work (what I share and do) has touched and helped them on their journey in life and sometimes those emails comes to me just in the precise right time when I have needed to hear it the most because there are still times in my life when I’m questioning if I should continue doing what I do or not.

Because frankly; I need to support myself, I need to be able to live on the work that is being done through me but even though things are as they are at the moment with me financially, I’m also very well taken care of by Life so I keep moving forward as prompted and how the love from you guys comes to me sometimes just in the right time is clearly an indication that I should continue.

Not that I would stop following what is true to me but you know what I mean; I have days too when I’m seriously thinking of other alternatives. (Or more accurately I have moments – not days – as they don’t last very long anymore).

Even though those types of days come less and less they still do come now and then, but all in all; this is what I feel drawn to do right now and I will be forever transforming and exploring, discovering and expressing different aspects of myself.

This is how it is right now and even if there are aspects of my life that are challenging, overall I am and feel tremendously blessed.

And I constantly experience just the right people entering my life, the places, situations and encounters that play an important role in the unfolding of my life.

Things that happens and conversations that makes me even more clear about my priorities and values.

Just yesterday I met someone who said that “you have to take a job, any job, just to survive in this life” and I said ‘no you don’t, I don’t, and I don’t starve’, and this is true.

My time spent on this earth will never again be spent on others people’s plans and their rules of how I should use my time and energy; if something doesn’t resonate with me I’m not doing it, period.

I know how it is to have little, to eat potatoes and mayo for dinner and to not have a home of my own, but I’m not slaving for money one more day in my life.

I rather die than work just to survive, that’s not how life should be and I refuse to succumb to any of that; I am not here to chase after money and to live just to make money.

Don’t get me wrong; I love having money and all my needs met and so on, but I’m no slave to it.

This is what I mean: 

If this was your last day on earth, would you be doing what you’re doing, or would you do something different?

Wouldn’t you make this day count, wouldn’t you do that which gave you some kind of deeper meaning?

“You have to use logic and reason” this person said in reply – and I say ‘yes, and my logic and reason tells me that using my time on that which matters to me is most important and right now it’s about continuing doing my work the best I can even if the financial ‘rewards’ are scarce’.

I can’t compare myself and my life with other people’s lives.

Other people might have other circumstances to deal with, but I deal with what is right now in my life and I’m not starving – I have food on the table and a whole hotel to myself.

I enjoy myself; I currently live in a small town with a buzzing artsy vibe, lots of music and interesting people everywhere, and I love my early morning walks through the streets of Competa and in the surrounding nature here with my new dog-friend Skugge.

I feel blessed.

I really do feel so blessed.

Even now as I’m writing this I get goosebumps and tears in my eyes because I truly feel so blessed for what I have and for what I get to experience.

I sat on the couch last night writing and meditating on things and I felt so incredible blessed even if I don’t “have much”.

Because I do have much, even if I don’t.

And right now I experience an incredible flow, things fall into place without me doing much (sometimes nothing), and there’s signs and synchronicity everywhere, from the tiniest little things to the bigger. I notice them all the time.

It’s so clear to me that something bigger is orchestrating all this and my clarity around that is so, .. clear. Really clear.

So I smile a lot nowadays 🙂

And so with this post I want to encourage you that if you’re on what you believe is your true path, and if things are challenging at the moment; keep going, keep moving forward, don’t deviate from your true path; make that promise to yourself.

Stay true and let Life show you where it wants to have you next and remember that Life is always moving even if it feels like everything stands still.

The tides are always turning – all happens in cycles and the more we can be the witness to all the changes around us (detached yet attentive), the more aware we become to the little whispers of life that is constantly guiding us towards greater and greater, .. greatness.

You’re right on.

Trust that.

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. She’s rare because she’s able to see where you are at in your journey and will eagerly 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. USA, Asheville, NC, USA

I am ready to take on the world!

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!


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.

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. 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!
