How To Handle Resistance From The World When You Want To Grow And Become More Your True Self: PART 1/7

Here follows a series of posts that I have divided into seven parts due to it’s length. I will post one post each day for seven days in a row.

It is a chapter from my book Energy Awareness – How To Use Energy To Change Your Life.

This is a subject that interests a lot of people – especially now that there’s a huge transformation going on in the world and we are growing into our spirituality (true self) more and more.

At times of our evolution there can be times when the energy vibration between people, even loved ones, shifts so dramatically that it becomes very hard to understand how to deal with all the changes that is going on. This series can help not only those who are growing more rapidly than others and feeling resistance from others, but also for those who has a loved one that is suddenly changing and becoming “more spiritual” if you will – this series can help you understand them better, and see where they are coming from.

This first post is quite long; but the others will be more ‘normal’ length 🙂

To be sure to receive all seven parts of this series; subscribe to my blog.

Enjoy Your Read! 🙂

One thing you will most certainly encounter when you have made the decision to live a spiritually conscious life is resistance from others, sometimes even your very best friends.

This has been one of the toughest learning experiences I struggled with, and because of that I think it’s really important to share what kind of challenges you might come up against on your journey of self-realization. I do want to assure you that you will grow from it and you will not be left alone for long.

At first it might feel like a very lonely road and your world might seem to fall apart completely. But it’s not, it’s in the process of rebuilding itself, and the new world will emerge from within. When you embark on the spiritual path, the inner journey, the world outside you is also changing, and that may mean you will have to leave some people behind. You might think you have made the wrong decision and fear that you will be alone for the rest of your life, thinking that no one will ever “get” you.

Then you begin to feel the world is really weird, you become very aware of your own thoughts, and you cannot understand how people can continue living in the illusion that most call life.

You are beginning to live your life from a different perspective, and there is no way back. You just have to go through it, because the old way of living is no longer an option for you though you might not yet see the next step to take.

You just know it’s something so good you can feel the promise of a good life within your soul.

You will have come to a point in your development where you let go of the need to be with someone; you begin to feel a presence in your life that makes you feel anything but alone. You might seem to be alone to others, but you don’t feel lonely.

You begin to be very in tune with who you are, and the need to feel understood or even liked disappears.

When you get there you enter a state of natural surrendering, an effortless process, and by then you will begin to attract people into your life who are in alignment with your vibration.

When you don’t need others anymore, they will come. Effortlessly, and to your greatest joy!

I’m sharing this information not to be negative or put other people down, but to share with you what has been a challenge in my own life and how to overcome it. We are influenced by other people, and frankly most people aren’t taking much responsibility regarding what kind of energy they bring to relationships and encounters with other people.

When you begin to understand the process of creating, and when you begin to really love yourself, some people will protest and they will want to keep you as you have always been.

You will probably hear that you are being selfish and egoistic.

Realize that they are actually the ones being selfish because they want you to stay as they want you to be so you can please them. They unconsciously think that you should make them, not yourself, happy!

People do not fear you when you are powerless, but when you show them the great and powerful being that you are, that we all are, that scares them and they will try to pull you down.

They find it inconvenient, and sometimes also confusing and uncomfortable, that you are changing. But that is not your problem.

You have to decide what kind of person you want to be, and then be it. If people around you aren’t willing to journey with you to the next level, let them go.

Remember the quote by Albert Einstein:

“Great Spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.”

Others can choose to see you in the new light that you are becoming, or they can choose to try to drag you down by calling you naive and saying you should “face reality.” Some might be very angry, and aggressively defend their limiting beliefs.

They might even act indulgent with you, almost like an understanding, concerned parent, and you can even feel that in the hugs they give you; there’s an underlying understanding that they will be there for you when you ‘grow up’ and see the world “as it really is.”

With an invisible pat on the head they will give you a sense of being looked down upon; although they mean well they will let you know by their vibration that they will be there for you when your world crashes—for in their mind it will, even if they don’t say it out loud.

In their mind life is no picnic. They see life as difficult, and occasionally, if they are lucky, there will also be some happiness, but it’s not something that one can choose or decide to experience; it’s not up to us, they believe.

I have even heard people say that when I get older I will “get over it,” that I will “grow up” some day and see that life is not a joyous experience! The sad part is that they really believe it. They really believe life is a struggle.

And for them it is. What you believe to be true becomes your reality.

They don’t know they are imprisoning themselves and also teaching their children the same fears that they have carried around since they first learned them twenty, thirty, or forty years ago.

At times when I have tried to encourage people to go after their dream rather than to continue doing things they don’t like, even hate, they aggressively defend their limiting beliefs with “some of us have responsibilities you know. You can’t just go and do what you like when you have kids.”

And that scares me; it’s an awful thing to say I think, especially in front of your children.

Living that way not only do you teach your kids that dreams are only meant to be dreams and stay that way, but you also unconsciously give them a sense of guilt, because if it weren’t for them, you would probably have been living your dream.

Children haven’t yet lost their sense of who they are the way most adults have, and by becoming bitter when you argue for your limitations, your child will most definitely feel that something is off path.

Nevertheless, what often happens is that they look up to you, they believe what you say, and they begin to do what you do. They stop listening to their inner voice that is trying to guide them to live the life of their dreams, to live the best life. They start believing: life is supposed to be a struggle, forget about the dreams, this is real life and it’s not a picnic.

We are really all role-models for each other, especially for the young ones. It’s a responsibility we all need to take seriously.

You will start noticing that when unconscious people speak about reality, it is always in a negative way. They will tell you that what feels good isn’t, and where there is struggling and suffering, there’s probably virtue somewhere in it. In a twisted way it becomes noble to be poor and spiritual.

It really annoys some people that you have chosen to do something you actually like to do and at the same time receive a lot of money for it. In their world, it’s wrong to make money by doing something enjoyable. Money should come from hard work, and everything else is wrong. That’s how life is, they say.

See to it that you don’t get caught in the web of negativity and, if you must, protect yourself and your energy by withdrawing from such people until you have integrated the new, positive beliefs so that you can stand strong in the midst of any negativity and have absolute inner knowing of your new thoughts about life, with the same strong conviction that they have about their beliefs. You will be untouchable, and good things will flow to you.

Then some will want to know your “secret,” and you can tell them.

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.” ~Mark Twain

Stay tuned for part 2 tomorrow! 🙂

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.

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 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!
