If it’s here, let it be (Surrender to the Present Moment)

It’s only when we deny or hide what we feel or think that we suffer.

If the feeling is there, let it be. That’s the easiest way to transcend anything, by letting it be.

Not with that intention of course, we can’t fool the universe! Not with the intention to ‘let it be so I can get away from the inner turmoil’.

Try it!

Think about something now that you may be ranting about in your mind, or something you feel offended by, or angry about, even sad.

Experience how it feels to let it be, to actually welcome it.

It’s when someone goes through everyday life trying to be perfect and behave correctly that there’s friction and conflict within, or aggravation and worry.

When we’re not being true to ourselves and are suppressing our true feelings and thoughts, making them wrong even just for ourselves, that’s when things get out of balance. 

If something is upsetting you right now, use that and see what happens. Whatever it may be.

Look at it, and say something like:

Okay, so I feel resentful because this or that. I feel a bit angry for something that he/she said and actually I also feel a bit betrayed. Yes, that’s what I feel. Betrayed and angry. And hurt”.

You can even exaggerate it. This is kind of funny, feelings and thoughts make themselves to be sooo important and when we exaggerate them we become aware of their unimportance and we can even realize how silly most of them are 🙂

If it feels appropriate for you to have fun with this, go on and have fun with it. Oftentimes the lighthearted approach is the best; humor is a great antidote if it’s sincere and curious. 

And then say:

And that is completely okay. I’m fine with those feelings being here now. I welcome them and I let them be here, if only for the simple reason that they are here, so I’m not going to resist them. They are allowed to be here”.

Feel how that feels. Actually do this now. It’s not enough to read.

You can even write your feelings and thoughts down on paper and really pinpoint what’s going on inside. 

Allow the feelings to be there, and also let thoughts be there.

Something that oftentimes happens, if not in all cases, is that with some kind of spiritual opening – even though it’s a lovely experience and all that – the mind will come in again, and it will do so quite forcefully.

It is not pleased with any realizations and transformations so it’s a natural thing for the mind to resists those things, so let it do that.

We all know how the mind can get rampant and obsessive.

What if you let it be that way, if it is that way now? Just because it is. That’s the only reason we need basically; it is already here.

The mind goes a bit haywire for a while and will do it’s rambling and ranting, and resisting it won’t help, it will still do it’s thing. (It will cease with time and your spiritual development and the more aware and conscious you become the easier it will get).  

This is where it’s important to be aware of this completely natural phenomenon with the spiritual awakening process and not resist it or hide from it, or try to get away from it by any means of trying to “feel better” or “stay positive”.

That’s just phony and fake, because you can’t pretend in front of God. No way around it.

Be with it.

I promise you that the moment you let it be, when you actually welcome it and invite it to just be, something amazing happens.

Try it!

Let go of the need to try to control the mind and thinking and let any sensations be.

See what happens.

Now, obviously I mean this within yourself, it’s not about lashing out at someone or something.

Instead of listening to the voice of the ego that says things like:

I should not be thinking these thoughts, or feel this way”, say: 

Well, I do. So there you have it. I do feel this way, and it’s okay with me to do that. Yes, I actually feel not only angry, but really really pissed off! And I’m okay with that too”.

Don’t avoid life; feel what you feel.

We can look at them as being seasoning or color to our experiences through life – how boring it would be if we didn’t have these sensations!

Life is both darkness and Light, and with acceptance and allowance there’s an underlying peace that never gets disturbed despite what’s going on on the surface of life.

How about giving being totally unprotected a chance? Being completely open to what is. 

What if we didn’t deny or hide – we could try that too. When ‘what is’ is allowed, whatever it is, then that which we a moment ago resisted and thought of as being wrong now easily and quickly flows through us, because the resistance is no longer there.

Resistance is about pushing away, and dwelling is about holding on. Both of the approaches to deal with ‘what is’ is all about  making this moment wrong and trying to escape from it or wallowing in the mind-made stories about it. (The ego loves that!)

Let go, relax, take a deep breath and allow this moment to be what it is with total acceptance and see what happens within you.

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.

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. 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’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

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!
