Dreams and our subconscious mind

Do you dream?

I do. A lot, and pretty much every night.

For me my dreams are very much cherished and I often wake up in the middle of the night just to write down some parts of a dream, or symbols that comes to me in a way that makes me “think” in my dream that it is important for me to remember, so I wake myself up just so that I can scribble down some notes that seem important to look up and meditate on the next day.

I have a notebook right by my bed filled with my writings that I have done in the dark with my eyes closed, half sleep 🙂

Most of us have had dreams where we have been flying, and isn’t that just wonderful? I love those dreams!

When I have my flying-dreams I feel exhilarated and very powerful, and when I wake up in the morning, the feeling continues with an inner knowing that whatever I’m involved in, if there has been even a slight little feeling of doubt or fear before, it’s totally gone now, because to fly in our dreams means that we are overcoming any difficulties or doubts we might have felt in our waking life.

If we know that, and we go with the flow of it in our waking life too, we become empowered by it, rather than going back to whatever “reality” we experienced yesterday.

It’s a sign from our subconscious mind that we are stronger than we might think, and it also gives us an inner feeling of complete peace, a knowingness that All really is well. That everything is as it suppose to be.

Lately my dream-patterns has changed a bit, or a better word would be, that something new has been added to me, and when it first happened I remember that I thought it was kinda interesting but didn’t think so much about it until it began to happen more often.

The dreams feel different, and I know in my dream, while dreaming, that it is not an ordinary dream. I see things happening, and I see people and..- My God how difficult it is to explain! LOL 😀

Anyway, my point is, that I have had dreams lately where that which I have dreamt of has happened the next day or so (like when I experienced/dreamt of the earthquakes in California, and the next morning I saw that there had been over two dozens of earthquakes that night).

I have met people in my dreams, that has spoken to me and told me things, and the next day or so I have been contacted by them, and when I have heard from them, I wasn’t surprised because I already knew it would happen.

I find this very interesting, and I have a feeling that what is happening is that I have been doing something for a while, which has opened up a new channel within me.

I love the power of our subconscious mind, and what I have done for long time is that sometimes, when I have been unsure about what path to chose, or felt a bit confused at times about what to do and so on, I have turned to my subconscious mind at night, just before I fell asleep.

The thing I do is that I ask, or tell (kindly, not in a demanding way), my subconscious mind to show me pictures of what it is that lies ahead, and what the right action might be for me to take, and it never fails!

Either I get to see pictures in my dreams, or they come to me when I’m not trying to figure things out.

And what I think is happening right now, with my new kind of dreams, is that they have expanded from being only about my own stuff, to a larger kind of “seeing”.

I have no idea, but something amazing is happening! The reason for this expansion is still beyond me, but I’m sure it will be revealed to me somewhere in the process.

What I think is important to know, is that our dreams are always there to help us, and that our dreams comes from our subconscious mind who knows everything, so the more we can learn how to direct it consciously, the more they will benefit us. We are always giving our subconscious mind directions anyway by what we chose to feed it with, so why not do it with a greater sense of awareness?

You too can ask it to show you what you need to know in order to move forward in life, or ask for guidance in whatever you might want to know more about.

Tonight, when you go to sleep, when you are really relaxed and you feel you are falling into an alpha state (light meditative state of mind), speak slowly, and with strong feeling, about what it is that you need help with.

Not in a “phleeeeaze, help me with this”-kind of begging and pleading energy vibe, but in a way of absolute certainty that you will receive the answers, and with an inner feeling of gratitude and expectancy of request answered.

Find a few key words in the end of your conversation with yourself, and dwell on them until you go off to sleep.

For example; if you are not sure about what you are here on earth to do, then you could tell your subconscious mind about it briefly (not dwelling on the “problem” too long), and continue with more focus on the actualization of what it is that you want to feel and experience:

  • “I have no idea about my calling or purpose in life, but I want to know, and I am open to and willing to listen, because I know that you know everything about me and my life, my purpose and my gifts and talents, and how I can be at service to the world. I feel so grateful now that I know that you are revealing to me my right place in life. Because I asked, it is given to me. I know this, and I feel so excited within, and eager now that I know our communication is clear and I can hear my own truth very clearly. I know that whatever I need to know in order to live my life to the fullest, and in the greatest joy possible, is now revealed to me in full. I completely trust you, and I love you. Thank you for helping and supporting me in your awesome ways……….. I know my purpose, I trust, I know why I’m here…. I’m joyful, trust completely… my purpose…trust…joy….ZZzzz…zzzz…zzz”  😀

This will help you open up the pathway to the life you came here to live, you will connect with your own inner truth in ways that most certainly will surprise and delight you!


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 changing the world by her presence. She’s leading people to a new way of being.

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.

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.

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!

  1. Very nicely put, Maria!

    Especially in how we can CONSTRUCTIVELY use our dreams. Many people fear them and see them as an ‘unknown’. In fact, just like everything else, they can serve us if we align and communicate.

  2. Maria Erving

    Thank you Hemal 🙂

    Yes, alignment and communication is what opens the door to all our inner wisdom!

    I found a few quotes that you might like as well:
    (I’m a huge quote-lover:-)

    “That which the dream shows is the shadow of such wisdom as exists in man, even if during his waking state he may know nothing about it…. We do not know it because we are fooling away our time with outward and perishing things, and are asleep in regard to that which is real within ourself.”
    ~Paracelsus, quoted in The Dream Game

    “Dreams say what they mean, but they don’t say it in daytime language.”
    ~Gail Godwin

    And how about this one:

    “Dreaming permits each and every one of us to be quietly and safely insane every night of our lives.” ~William Dement

    LOL 😀

    Great Comment, Maria! Dreams are a powerful tool to greater self-awareness. Some years ago, I participated at a weekend seminar based on Ira Progroff”s book, “At a Journal Workshop”. The meeting was about keeping a personal diary – dialogue with people, diagologue with events, dialogue with dreams and so forth. My even sporadic journal keeping over the years and particularly my dream log with hundreds of dreams from bizarre to the most sublime has helped me enormously in finding answers to important questions in my life, including a compelling answer to years of searching to my most painful questions – Why am I here? Wy am I on this planet? What is my purpose in Life? It hurts everytime I think about how little I have done with the answers, but I am beginning to see some clouds being pushed aside.For this I am grateful to the Infinite. And I am grateful to you for sharing so generously with your readers and for showing me that cooperation and sharing is the way to go. “No man is an island”, as John Donne said, and I have been an island for too long. Thank you so much.

  4. Benard –
    Thank you for your comments (both here and on Facebook)
    Thank you for sharing about yourself in that way. And I’m glad you liked the article:-)

    I too write my dreams down as you know, and I love it – they have so much wisdom for us – and yeah, I have had some weird
    dreams too that really makes you go “what was that all about..??” lol

    Happy for you about the clouds being pushed aside <3
    and for what you have shared with me before, I'm sure you have done a lot more than you might think for humanity at large.

    ~All the best to you!
