If you want to awaken spiritually, don’t do this

Most people want to be soothed and comforted by their spiritual teachers and Gurus.

Don’t be that kind of person.

Don’t engage in spiritual masturbation by only doing what feels good because the only one that it feels good for is your ego.

You may think you’re doing profound spiritual work but if feeling good is all that comes out of it, you’re not doing the real work.

The work that your ego is scared shitless of and is avoiding at all cost.

Real spiritual work is when the whole foundation of your life is shaken to its core, and repeatedly so until the ego is no longer able to rebuild itself up again.

When the only thing left is something that you can only know by completely surrendering to the process which is ruthlessly destroying that which you take as true and real.

It’s a challenging process to the point of brutal.

Pure hell at times to put it mildly, and where Truth is completely and utterly uninterested in your avoidance games and projections. 

The awakening process is not about building, creating or finding anything; on the contrary it’s about a full demolition of that which you now call your world.

You cannot take anything with you, and you won’t achieve anything, or gain anything.

Truth goes in behind layers and layers and veils of illusion that you’ve built and hold dear and when it’s done, all that is left is Truth itself.

The spiritual awakening process is about unlearning all the false nonsense you’ve taken for real all your life.

It has not even anything to do with spirituality, it goes way beyond all the spiritual woo-woo and mushiness. 

If you believe the path to awakening is about soft chanting, candle light and incense, and about trying to reach bliss states, then you haven’t even began you awakening process yet.

If you on the other hand are experiencing the dismantling of your “self” and the tearing down of your belief-systems, then it has begun and you’re in for a helluva ride.

And once Truth is done with you, ‘you’ won’t be here, there is no finish line for ‘you’ to cross in it.

No high-fives to be expected. 

What will be left is Truth, and only that.

And since you are that (although you can’t ‘know’ it until you know it), you’ll be free, and free to enjoy your life.

That’s really all that is left after awakening.

To live and to enjoy. Nothing more, nothing less.

If this is what you want, then stop hanging out in the spiritual playground of mainstream feel-good stuff and begin the Real Work:

Question everything and surrender completely to the process without trying to hide, run, or manipulate yourself out of it.

Book a session with 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!

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.

 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!

J, 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

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

I certainly did not expect this

I certainly did not expect this, l have had periods of such intense joy and bliss, Love with an underlying peace that’s been consistent. l don’t understand it intellectually but my heart see’s it clearly. It’s been wonderful, I feel a true sense of connection and being rooted with in and there is just an openness and trust, and a sense of wonder and amazement. I am truly grateful, Thank you. Sincerely.

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. 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 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

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 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.

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.

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!

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!

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

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.

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.

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

Thank you, Maria!

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

– Robert, CA, USA

One of the best investments I ever made in myself

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 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

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!

Blown away at the business that I’m attracting

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.

When I first discovered your website, I was elated to have found your articles. I literally kicked off my shoes, relaxed and made myself at home. That first visit, I read for hours, crying and laughing. I can’t begin to describe how much your articles have helped me. The spiritual awakening process is a very painful and lonely journey. Your articles answered many of my questions and set my mind at ease that I was on the right path.” — G.P. Round Rock, Texas, US

I was looking for answers around spiritual awakening as I had no idea what was going on and that first article I read had me crying with relief because it gave me so much clarity and understanding and hope, not only about spiritual awakening, but also law of attraction, loneliness, personal development, LIFE!!! There is no one else I'd rather go to for help. I know 100% I wouldn't be where I am today without your support, guidance and knowledge, thank you from the bottom of my heart!” Val, Melbourne, Australia

    Hello Maria,

    This is an eye opening article. Ego is always there to deceive me. I am foolishly feeling that the bliss state is the last stop.

    You are telling us that surrender to process, but Maria.. there is a conditioning in me that i can surrender to other person only.. i.e. Guru etc.

    What can I do Maria?

    -Ganesh

  2. I remember when I was in India and everyone kept asking the same questions; “are you married?” etc, they also always asked what religion I was and who my Guru is (= standard Indian questions).

    This is the conditioning of the minds in India, and when I replied that I’m not married, that I don’t have a religion and that I don’t have a Guru they looked at me as if it was really strange 🙂

    But you have the awareness that it is a conditioned mindset, or programmed belief-system, so by that awareness you’re already halfway there so to speak.

    It depends on how ingrained the belief is and how independent you are in your thinking (and how dedicated you are to your awakening).

    And also look at the experiences you’ve had with surrendering to a person (Guru), how was your experience of that?

    Was it helpful, did you feel free or restricted, were you able to be independent, did you feel respected and so on in your relationship with this Guru?

    What was your gut telling you, and what is your gut telling you (now, about the path forward)?

    Is this the path, really..? Is it for you or not?

    Be brutally honest with yourself.

    I would personally never even consider surrendering to a person, Guru or whatever they may be.

    That is completely alien to me.

    Just as alien as it was for all the Indian people who thought it was really weird that I’m not married or that I don’t have a Guru.

    The difference between us is that I am free, and they are not (=they believe something and I don’t).

    They really really think that the way to live is to be married, have a religion and a Guru. That’s their reality and they never question it.

    So it’s really a choice on your part now that you know it’s a conditioned state you’re in (the conditioned state is the ego state), if you want to break free from it or not.

    And who in their right mind would want to stay in bondage now that they know that there’s another way to live (being free)? The answer is very clear to me.

    Keep releasing and relinquishing the false, Ganesh.

    It is a choice you must make for yourself to see Truth and nothing but Truth and when/if you do, that’s what you’ll end up with when all the false has been seen through and let go of.

    Moving on,..

    Surrendering to the process means that you act on what is shown to you without hesitation.

    In your case when we speak about Gurus;

    So if a teacher comes your way (Guru is you will) and you feel drawn to them (genuinely, not by the ego), then work with them, learn from them, let them point the way, but never, ever get attached to or dependent on any person.

    They are not gods, you are, within yourself there is God/Life/Truth.

    Sometimes when you’re in the process of any transformation in life you will be lead to different people/teachers/Gurus etc, but it’s not them you should surrender to.

    Immediately if someone tries to convince you that they have the Truth, or that they can awaken you or whatever promises they make, run away from them as fast as you can!

    On the other hand, if they challenge you to seek within yourself for the answers, then listen to them for as long as it feels right and relevant.

    Surrendering to Truth means you surrender to the path that unfolds before you and to the truth withing yourself.

    Not surrendering to your experiences, conditions and other people.

    See the difference?

    Be free always, Ganesh. Bound to nothing and no one.
