Kenneth Branagh quote

Stop being so hard on yourself (Be kind to yourself)

Some people take life so seriously and are being so hard on themselves.

If you’re one of them, then hopefully this post will inspire you to loosen up a bit and to be kinder to yourself. 

Here’s a collection of some of my older articles that has to do with self-love and about lightening up a little and not taking things so seriously all the time.

Hope they help you find relief from any tension you may have put upon yourself either consciously or unconsciously.

Here’s two very old posts that immediately came to mind as the inspiration came to me to write this article:

Stop Being So Hung-Up On Your Ego!

Laugh The Seriousness Off! (Ego takes itself to be so important)

Too often people push themselves too hard, making life either black or white because they have adopted belief-systems that says that ‘this is right and that is wrong’.

In reality there is no “right way” for you to live, except for Your Way.

And when you click into place with yourself and you’ve found your way, you’re free.

It’s only when you find your own way that you come to experience how it really is to be a free human being.

The mind has to be jolted from the norm in order to grow and transform.

If you are too rigid and strict with yourself to the point that it takes away the joy of living, then I really urge you to do something to breaks up the limiting, ingrained mind-patterns that keeps you restricted in life.

The quality of the relationship we have with ourselves determines the quality of our life and the more true and in tune we are with ourselves, the happier and more fulfilled we are.

If you saw your very best friend live in the strict, serious and rigid way that you do, you would point it out for them, right? 

Or if you saw them constantly running around being stressed and tense about everything, or doing something that was clearly unhealthy, what would you say to them?

Sometimes we human beings are our own worst enemy so we need to be reminded to be kind to ourselves and to love ourselves.

Some people are not only their own worst enemy, but they are at War with themselves and life.

Another thing many people do, is that they allow their ego play the blame/shame/guilt game with them where they hold resentment and anger towards others and themselves for things of the past.

To not forgive is to hold yourself hostage and bound to the past, and it’s a choice you make.

You can choose to live in the past (and re-live your pain and hurt), and you can also choose to let go of the past and move on and live your life from the present.

Forgiving yourself is just as important as it is to forgive others.

Another thing that restricts the natural joy of living is the endless ‘doing’ that never stops.  

Most of us have been conditioned to think that it’s wrong to not do anything, that it’s unproductive and lazy, but in reality there’s a time and place for everything, both for doing and for being. 

Most people are caught up in doing and they completely neglect ‘being’.

If that’s you, then read this:

It’s also important to be selfish at times.

The ever-unfolding Self is taken care of in the best way when we honor the pull from within that asks us to take a step back from everything and just cater to our own needs for a moment.

To give ourselves the room and space that is needed – that to me is the best definition of being “selfish”.

It’s a healthy and positive thing to be selfish in this way because only then can we really give our best to the world, when we first take care of ourselves.

Also, when was the last time you gave yourself a pat on the back for everything you’ve done?

You might have done a lot of great things but rarely acknowledged your progress in the process.

It’s incredibly important to celebrate your wins and successes and also to give yourself some slack for the things you are not so happy with as many are quick to point out their flaws and shortcomings but not what they did well.

I hope this article has inspired you to take things less seriously and to lighten and loosen up a bit so that you can enjoy life more and be more happy and free, as we’re all meant to be.

There’s nothing more important than to be happy in life, don’t you agree? 😊

If you could relate to any of the things I shared in this article, then take a moment to re-think what happiness means to you and then make the shifts that enables you to have more of it in your life. 

Humanity takes itself too seriously. It is the world’s original sin. If the cave-man had known how to laugh, history would have been different.” ― Oscar Wilde (The Picture of Dorian Gray)


And oh, put some music on! There’s nothing more liberating than listening to music if you feel all tense and serious!

Music really has the ability to shift your vibration to a higher level in seconds. 😊

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

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.

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

Definitely worth the investment

Maria showed me how magic can be created by my own Being. It was definitely worth the investment in myself. I’m extremely grateful for my time with her.

- Anna

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 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.

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.

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. Thank you Maria!

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 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.

I would highly recommend Maria to anyone. I am forever changed and forever grateful!

I have clicked into place with myself

 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!


Completely transformed my understanding

Maria guided me to realize that relying solely on my mind (like LOA teaches) wouldn’t lead to the changes I wanted. A profound shift took place within me which completely transformed my understanding and my perspective on life. I am eternally grateful to Maria. 

— Carrie, USA

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

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.

– A.

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!
