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. 😊

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

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!

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

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

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

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.

Thank you, Maria!

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

– Robert, CA, USA

Mark Neely, Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA

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.

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.

C. Málaga, Spain

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

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.

– Carolyn W. Asheville, NC, 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 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!

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

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

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

 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!


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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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
