Do I have to be awake and participate in the healing session?

Can a healing session work even if you’re not still or conscious of it taking place?

One of the participants in yesterdays distant group healing session wrote me and asked me if the healing session works even if they could not participate and here’s my response.

YES, it works regardless, BUT..!:

I would prefer if you participated consciously.

Here’s why:

Since I tune into your energy and I’m highly sensitive I can actually sometimes feel if you’re not present or actively participating in the session.

And when I feel that, it’s a little bit like sitting at a cafe having a coffee with someone who plays with their phone and are texting with others while you’re trying to have a conversation with them.

I’m sure anyone can relate to the feeling of that kind of disconnect in one way or another where you’re together with someone but not really, you know? 

So a private session with me is an appointment, it’s a meeting regardless of if we’re face-to-face or not so in private sessions with me I do want you to be present in the actual healing session (lay down and relax etc). 

In the distant group healing sessions it’s a bit different since it’s at a specific time and for some it’s daytime where they live (and they’re at work) while for others it might be when they are at sleep at night, or early in the morning etc.

But the healing will “work” even if you’re at work or doing something else

Here’s the thing;

You don’t have to do anything but to state your intention (to yourself), relax and be open and receptive.

So if you’re at work at the time of the group healing session and can’t take an hour off, then I suggest you are as aware as you can be while you do your work or other errands and chores, meaning you are mentally aware of the fact that you’re at the moment receiving healing energy.

The best is to simply relax as much as you can (even if you’re at work) and not be concerned about it.

When working with me privately on the other hand we’ll select a time that allows you to be undisturbed and relaxed to receive the healing consciously because the healing is just more effective that way in terms of your experience of it.

In the healing session you open up to new insights and different sensations and experiences, so by being in a receptive mode (where you’re relaxed and open) you’re more able to receive information and answers from within.

You might experience sensations such as tingling, energy vibrations in your hands or “third eye”, temperature changes in the body and emotional relief where you feel heaviness turning to lightness and so on.

But if you’re at work at the same time as the healing session is taking place then you can’t be (fully) consciously aware of old energies that are being cleared out and so on (those things can be physically and emotionally felt in a session).

In short;

To me it really is like a face-to-face meeting and so I would obviously like to actually have you present in that meeting! 🙂

In the healing session I’m tuning into you energetically

As I mentioned before I establish an energetic connection with the person I’m sending healing to and I prefer feeling their participation in the session, even if they fall asleep because while you’re asleep your mind is relaxed and calm.

So in short:

It doesn’t matter to the healing energy if you’re awake or at work, driving your car or doing chores, it makes no difference at all, you will still receive the healing energy and it will still do its work in you.

The energy will be received where it needs to go regardless of what you’re doing or not doing.

But, from a personal point of view, as a healer, I prefer if you are actively participating.

This does not mean you have to do anything because you don’t.

It just means that I see the distant healing session in the same way as if you were to come and see me in person, even though you‘re not physically with me.

Just as in a hands-on-healing session I would ask you to set your intention, close your eyes and relax, that’s all you have to do.

Relax and allow the healing to take place.

And if you fall asleep during the session that is perfectly okay, it’s normal, but if you can stay awake and conscious then that’s even better. But it’s not in any way required.

Hope this makes sense and that it answered your question and please feel very free to let me know if there’s anything else I can clarify for you.

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.

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.

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!
