Delhi to Goa to .. where?

Share your ideas with me!

I have not planned much when it comes to my journey through India and the few plans I already had in place (two collaborations so far that didn’t happen), they fell away and I can’t but laugh thinking about how incredible this life is and how it moves! 

It’s exciting and full of wonder; it feels wonderful to be open to what Life and India wants to show me although right now I’m craving a place where I can stay for a while and really enjoy it fully.

The last place has had its challenges, mainly because of the limited and restricted access to Internet, but it’s right by the beach here in Goa, just a few minutes walk from it so that has been very nice.

Tomorrow I’m moving again and will be staying at a place in north Goa, closer to Panjim (the capital of Goa), so I look forward to that very much.

Overall I must say that hadn’t it been for my upcoming collaborations here in Goa I would probably have left already because I feel it’s too touristy and even if Rishikesh was touristy too there’s a vast difference between those two places.

I prefer the spiritual vibe before the drinking/partying touristy vibe.

And besides, I have beaches and all that comes with that in Spain so it’s not like it’s a huge thing for me to spend time at a beach resort.

I rather see the ‘real India’ but I also don’t want to get too much into the rural areas.

So, any suggestions where to go after Goa?

Let me know 🙂

By the way, I have posted pictures on Facebook from my train trip from Delhi to Goa:

Check them out here.

The 26 hour long train journey went well.

I took the AC3 class, not sleeper class, and I am so happy that the ticket got changed and upgraded because I saw those sleeper trains and I would not want to travel in those!

Anyways, 

I had the company of a lovely Indian family and even if the bench was really uncomfortable to sit on I felt okay and safe the whole journey.

One of the older ladies in the family, the grandmother and I, we shared the bottom bed during the day and here in India you just have to get used to having to almost spoon with other people as I did with the grandmother when she wanted to rest after lunch and dinner etc.

I’m laughing so hard now thinking back at the moment when she asked me if I wanted a blanket and then she grabbed my feet and just fell asleep almost hugging them.

It was so funny and also heartwarming how they just open up their personal space for you.

I was okay with that, it’s like you just accept that that’s the way things work here in India and they too (like other Indian people I have met on my journey) asked me personal questions like if I’m married and so on (and why not, as it’s strange for them that a woman in my age is ‘not yet married’.

Here you don’t get to know someone before they begin the ask things about your private life so you just kind of have to go with the flow of it and feel the awkwardness of it.

And another new experience was the Indian standing toilet.. I didn’t drink much water on the trip, let me just put it that way! 🙂

And also; you never have to bring any food with you on the train; they feed you like every three hours (not good food, but okay, kind of like the food you’d expect on airplanes) and the Indian family gave me all kinds of snacks and food as well!

They were very sweet to me 🙂

When going with train in India you get to see India from a different perspective; the poor people living along the train tracks etc and one thing I noticed is that they throw the garbage out the window from the trains but then again I guess it in some way benefit and help the people living in the poor places if they find food in the garbage. 

But they burn a lot of plastic here and a lot of garbage, and it’s everywhere.

So there’s wonderful smells of incense, food, spices and so on and then this horrible smell of burning plastic and garbage too.

I’m a very clean person but I have managed to accept the uncleanliness of India as best as I can. You just have to basically, because it is what it is. 

What else can I share, .. hm.. oh yeah, a funny thing about perspective; on one of the train we passed by I saw a sign that was very different from what you can ever see in the West, at least I have never seen one before, it said “for differently abled” instead of “for disabled” and I liked that.

That was a little update about my whereabouts at the moment and I’m sure more pics will come when I’m closer to Anjuna and Panjim and so forth since those places are more populated compared to the quiet and somewhat secluded beach-place where I’m at right now.

After February 25th I’m open again to go some other place but will be staying between Goa and Gokarna (about 4 hours south from Goa) where I’ll be doing a collaboration again in March.

So I have a window of approximately two weeks where I have no clue where I’ll go (25th of Feb. to March 7) so if you have any suggestions then please do share.

Hampi has been mentioned to me a few times and I would love to go but it’s high season there plus it’s a small town so with my low budget price range on places to stay I don’t know if I want to take the chance/risk to go there and then find out that there’s nothing in my price range.

That would be a bummer, so I have to find other options.

Share with me any kind of spiritual places you can think or, or know of, between Goa and Gokarna, and it doesn’t have to be on the coast, it can be inland too (like Hampi is). 

 Unfortunately I can’t post any pics here today, the Internet is incredibly slow so it takes forever.

Hopefully the connection is better at the place I’m going to tomorrow.

You can go to my Instagram though in the meantime to see some of my pics:

And my Social Stream site is on it’s way back, so you can now access some of my free links from there again:

And again, I will have to edit this post too when I get the chance as I have to be very quick when I publish them since the Internet is what it is… Gaaah! 😀

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 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.

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.

Val, Melbourne, Australia

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!
