Changing unproductive ways by learning how to stand in our own power

Changing unproductive ways and being, such as sitting on the lounge watching television hours on in to productive ways, such as exercising, thus you are changing unconstructive habits.

Who knows when you make these changes you may find a need to change some other behaviors and habits, such as deceptiveness, binge eating, smoking, etc to useful habits by developing a positive outlook.

Even if these behaviors are not a problem for you, there is always room for improvement.

Oftentime we find that as we evolve and change, many of our other small and sometimes insignificant habits make themselves known and we can more easily address them as well, in the same process.

It’s like everything we take care of in the journey forward to happiness and freedom is helping us in the ways that they are showing themselves to us as we go. This is really life changing stuff!

Making changes for the better gives you something to look forward to.

When you make positive changes, your conduct shows to others that you have worked at finding your success.

In addition, good conducts encourage other people to follow your steps. To stand in our own power helps others to want that too and we become a resource for others, isn’t that awesome?

It’s not an overnight success thing, and it can be a rough path to travel for a while when we first begin changing your ways, but the road blocks we seem to encounter can be looked as something that will will help you be even more creative and succeed in your goals. If you try to rush, it will only hinder you from making productive progress.

So take it one-step at a time. Be kind to yourself 🙂

For example, if you want to quite smoking or lose weight, set up reasonable goals to get started.

Do not beat yourself down if you fail the first time. Rather pick yourself up and just go forward in your goal to achieve whatever it is that you want to change in your life.

The only use of looking back is if you want to see your progress, and when seeing that it’s like giving you a reward so that you keep that positive attitude alive!

What changes are you ready to begin implementing right now? Not tomorrow; but today 🙂

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.

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.

Thank you, Maria!

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

– Robert, CA, USA

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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!

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.

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

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

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!

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

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

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.

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’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

 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

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 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

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

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.

  1. Maria,
    I wanted to let you know that I’ve read quite a few of your articles and have shared them in the lobby of the mental health facility I work at (always including your name as credit and referring readers to your website). Your articles are great for our setting here!

    Supported Employment Specialist
    NKHS CRT Program–Newport,VT

  2. Hi Tabitha,

    Thank you for saying that, I appreciate it!

    I’m glad to be a source of inspiration for you (or your work-place) as I have gone through difficult times myself (as you may know from having read some of my posts) and there’s nothing more fulfilling than to be able to share my own journey with the intent to touch hearts and to empower others that they too can be find their way back to themselves again and be healed.

    What kind of work is it that you do more specifically? (What kind of mental health is the focus of your work?)

    Thanks again for your comment!

    All the best,

  3. I work as a Supported Employment Specialist for a non-profit human services agency called Community Rehabilitation and Treatment. I help those in my community suffering from various mental illnesses (schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, PTSD, depression, personality disorders, etc) find and maintain work. I work closely with these individuals, their case managers, therapists and psychiatrist to overcome obstacles and barriers so they can work. Many of these individuals are very debilitated because of their illness and require daily supports for their basic needs, but others just need a helping hand in getting their lives back together after an episode.

    In addition, I work closely with our community’s businesses to raise awareness and fight stigmas surrounding mental illness. We use Evidence-Based Practice methods and are working to adopt more Peer-Led Recovery programs.

    I enjoy your articles that concentrate on having a positive attitude and how to change thinking as well as about forgiving. I have found many of them are great material for our waiting room.

    I am always interested in learning about how other communities help their members suffering from mental illness. Do you have a program similar in your community?

  4. That’s really great! Are you by any chance friends with Michele Rosenthal?
    (If not you can find her on Twitter: @lifeaftertrauma)

    She also does work that has to do with PTSD, maybe you’ll have other things in common too.

    I don’t know how the traditional (or “normal”) treatment regarding mental illnesses are here where I live – I don’t have that focus in my life as my focus is on the more spiritual aspects of human development, or consciousness.

    Great to hear that my writings are helpful in your community and that you’re sharing my website with people you come in contact with, again; thank you for that – it’s much appreciated! 🙂

  5. Such a small world! I have met Michele briefly (in cyberspace 😀 ) and have her on my facebook buddies. I operate a website called The First Five Pages for authors and she will be posting the first of her book in the coming weeks. At the risk of sounding like advertising, I invite you to drop by and check it out! You can email me directly with your email address and I’ll let you know when her work is posted there if you like. If I remember correctly her post will be this week starting Wednesday and will run as the Featured Story for one week.

    Here’s my email:
    And here’s the website:

    Happy Writing! ~Tab

  6. I had a feeling you might know her:-)

    I have contributed to her Project Give Back with a free gift for people who buy the book, you can find it on her info-page about the book if I remember it right.

    Wishing you all the best with your venture together!
