How Are You Thinking Today?

In 2012 I was asked to participate in a book that’s called “It’s The Thought That Counts” by Chantal Beaupre, along with 24 other leading experts in personal development, and here’s my contribution to it!

“How are you thinking today?”

Who do you choose to be? A lot of people go around and make excuses for themselves and never grow out of the rut that they have placed themselves in by saying things like, “This is just the way I am,” “I have always been like this,” “It’s who I am,” and so forth… but I disagree.

It is what and who you CHOOSE to be, in THIS moment. And we can always change that.

So instead of asking you. “How you are feeling today?,” I’ll ask you, “How are you thinking today?”

You choose the thoughts you have and your feelings are the guides that will—provided you listen—point you in the right direction. Rather than suppressing or denying negative emotions, look at them in a different way.

They are telling you when something is off and when something is right.

So, choice is always available in every situation, and the way you behave in the world illuminates what you really think of yourself. If you are doing drugs or abuse yourself in other ways—like, for example, staying in an abusive relationship—I know for sure that you are not paying any attention to your emotions that are there to help you make the right choices for yourself.

So, how are you thinking today?

When you think of your dreams and goals, how are you thinking about them? Honestly.

Do you think that they are not really attainable because that is not who you are, that you don’t really have what it takes because that’s just not for somebody like you? Do you really believe in your own greatness, or is it only a nice concept?

Or, do you feel excited and powerful, thinking that you will know when it is your turn to do something in the process of manifestation, just by turning your attention to the way you feel in every given moment and really trust the messages your feelings give you?

That when something feels right to do, you do it immediately… or when something feels negative, you go and have a drink instead of paying attention?

The shift in perspective and attentiveness is what makes the difference.

Not physical strength, not intellectuality, nor having a lot of money or friends who can help you. It’s all in your mind, in the way you think about yourself and life.

What if you didn’t take your thoughts that seriously just for today, just to see how ridiculous they actually are most of the time?

What if you—just for today, instead of believing every thought—just decide to observe them and not get involved in them as much as usual?

You would then be able to see very clearly how you actually think, and even laugh about them. It really is an eye opener, because most people are not even aware of the kind of thoughts they have.

They just believe them to be true and never question them.

And what if you did? Question them I mean. Ask yourself if your thoughts are true, how you know they are true, and who told you that.

There are invisible rules and regulations in the world that mediocre people / the masses live by—unconsciously, most of the time—that say that becoming a millionaire, or even a billionaire, by doing what one loves is impossible, and that it’s only for a few lucky ones in the world.

They are never even questioning themselves why they can’t be one of them.

Who taught them that they are not the ones? And is it really true?

To not follow one’s dreams and do something grand with our passions, saying things like, “I cannot be a photographer/dancer/writer (you name it) and make good money from it because it’s a tough business” is tough only for the people who think it is tough! For some, it’s an easy business.

Why can’t it be that way for you? Because of your perspective.

Shift it and things begin to change.

When you do something you absolutely love, when it feels like breathing to you, your passion will drive you forward—no matter what.

No matter if the world tells you to stop that nonsense and jump into the water instead and drown like everybody else. When you are driven by your passion, you can’t let yourself be governed by the outer confusion, but wholly by your inner realization—but you have to be the one who activates the power within you and you do so with your thoughts.

By only being WILLING to consider that there might be another way of living life. Your willingness is enough.

The power of your intention to challenge your way of thinking will open up your mind to higher levels of existing.

Set your new intentions with focus on Love and other people, and you’re on the path to success!

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

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 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.

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.

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

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!

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

 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!


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.

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 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

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

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.

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

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
