Electricity Challenges in Northeast India

You’ll encounter electricity issues everywhere in India but I would say that the northeast has been the worst so far in my travelings.

First I want to mention Sikkim.

There were constant power-cuts (many per day) and the internet/WiFi connection and phone signal was really bad, and in Meghalaya (a different state in northeast India) where I’m now it’s pretty much nonexistent (extremely bad).

Just to write and edit this post is challenging because the signal is very poor but hopefully I can publish it quickly and easily.  

The power is on and off (mostly off..) at the places I have stayed in Meghalaya and internet is reeeeally slow (or not working at all) due to the weather.

Only in Shillong was I able to get a good enough signal and I think you will find that every larger city in India has an okay workable signal if you need to do some online work as I did.

I only stayed in Shillong for a couple of days and for that reason only.

Cherrapunjee is called ”the wettest place on earth” and I can understand that because it’s nice during the day but in the evening you better hold on to your umbrella should you dare go out because the thunderstorms here are incredibly powerful!

Right now as I write this it’s actually monsoon season and I love thunderstorms but there have been moments when I have thought that the house would literally take off because of the strong winds.

It’s incredibly powerful! I have never experienced anything like this before in my life (I love it though, but as I said, you’ll get an even bigger respect for nature when you experience this kind of weather!).

The first day when I got here I was without electricity for more than 24 hours I think it was so I was without both phone and laptop (battery empty in both) and as soon as the power came back I recharged them as quickly as I could.

Once you get them recharged you have to use them sparingly and always be charging them so you won’t be without because someone told me that there are sometimes power-cuts that lasts for days here.

I only have one socket in my room though and my phone is dying on me right now and with that goes my Hotspot connection.

It’s raining like crazy right now and only a few moments ago the sun was shining.

That’s the kind of weather you can expect here 🙂

Another thing that happened in Sikkim was that my ATM card was not working.

I tried many different ATM’s and they were all timed out before I could get my cash.

At first I thought it was because I went to the ATM on a Sunday and that maybe the machine was empty of cash or something.

Or that maybe the process was timed because of the weather, but then when it happened again and again on other days as well I thought that maybe it’s that my card just didn’t work in Sikkim for some reason (because it’s like a different country within India).

So I Googled “Sikkim ATM timed out” and similar search phrases and found out that many people have experienced the same issue, but the worse part was that the bank had deducted money from their account but they had not received the cash because the process was times out before they were able to get it!

So that concerned me a bit so I had to call my bank but they couldn’t give me any information of last transactions over the phone etc etc (long story) so I’m just hoping that my money is still safely intact on my account ( I will see when I get back to Spain).

So if you visit Sikkim; bring cash, just in case! (My card worked again when I left Sikkim state).

And if you visit the northeast India overall, expect to be without both electricity, phone signal and internet connection, sometimes for whole days, and sometimes more, but usually on and off all the time so you can’t really do any important work online since the connection is not reliable at all.

Hope this information was helpful to you somehow.

And oh, here’s another thing that you should know in case you’re going to Sikkim (permit info):

I highly recommend anyone to travel to Sikkim, it’s a beautiful, wonderful place and the people are lovely! 🙂

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. 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.

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.

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!

    Hello, Ms. Adventure, good story and advice! It is always interesting to see reports of people from developed countries telling their experiences in conditions really foreign to them, but everyday life to the natives.

    I hope you have inspiration and desire to let us know more about your drama-day on the road, 2 days ago I think… I am most interested.

    So, no more Sikkim, where to now?

  2. I’ll post that article today Peruette, my laptop run out of battery yesterday. I will be staying here in Cherrapunjee for a week or so, doing some writing and catching my breath lol! 🙂 Drama article coming shortly! (Provided I have electricity and signal! 😊)
