How to ask for inner guidance

Referring to this article:

“Gurus are all saying different things” – Who should I believe, who is right?

“How do you listen to yourself if you have never done that before?”

I’ve written a lot about how to go within and ask for guidance so I’m just going to share the essence of it now (which is all you need, it’s not complicated at all) and give you a few links that will direct you to even more clarity.

Here’s a post that will help you become more aware of the subtle nudges the universe sends you and have always been sending you throughout your life:

Follow Your Impulses To Live a Grander Life 

Here’s a list with ten things regarding intuition and the importance of listening to it and how to get in touch with it:

Meditation and Intuition: How To Receive Answers

Journaling and writing is an excellent way to receive answers and guidance.

A silent retreat is massively beneficial for connecting with yourself and Life, and I highly, highly recommend it:

DIY Silent Retreat 

Okay, that should get you started! 🙂

But as I said, it’s not complicated, all you need is sincerity and honesty (with yourself).

5 steps to listen to the higher wisdom within you:

All you really need to do to listen to yourself and communicate with Life, the universe, is simply to do this:

1.) Intend that you want growth and progress, expansion, higher knowing, or something like that.

You want to grow and further your life and move forward. That’s the intention.

2.) Speak/write freely from your heart and say everything that’s on your mind (don’t hold back, let it all out).

Communicate like you’re speaking to your very best friend (who happens to be all-knowing!:)

Say you want guidance and clear direction (ask for it).

3.) Get quiet/still and sit in that silence for a few moments.

After a few moments you can begin to ask (quietly to yourself/Life) whatever questions you’d like to have answers to.

Here’s a few suggestions:

  • “What is important that I know or understand about my life right now?”
  • “What is the next right move?”
  • “What is the next right actions for me to take?”
  • “What is mine to do, if anything?”
  • “What is the best way for me to use this day?”
  • “What new influences do I need?”
  • “What is the next direction?”
  • “What new inspiration/knowledge do I need?”
  • “Is there something I would benefit from knowing/being aware of?”
  • “Is there something I’ve been ignoring or not ‘getting’, if so what is that?”
  • “What do I need to let go of?”
  • “What do I need to embrace/realize?”
  • “What is the Truth that needs to be spoken/understood/realized?”
  • “What is Life telling me?”
  • “Is there any other question I would benefit from asking?”

4.) Sit in meditation when you’re done with the talking and asking.

Sometimes a few minutes is enough, sometimes a longer meditation is more appropriate.

You have to feel into this yourself and do what feels right for you, but I would recommend 20 minutes to start with if you’re new to this.

5.) Say Thank You when you’re done and get up and do something completely unrelated to your questions and meditation.

You can do anything that creates a ‘break’ from the meditation (= you let the questions go, you release them to the higher power within you/Life/the universe), like for example gardening, go for a walk, listen to music or watch a funny movie.

Something that is unrelated to your meditation and the things you asked about.

That’s it!

Now Life has the ball.

You can end your meditation by saying something like this:

“Now I have said and asked everything I needed to ask so now the ball is in your court. Whatever happens next is a sign or direction from you and I will trust it and do what I’m guided to do without hesitation”.

It will always feel right.

It can be a nudge, feeling, or clear sign of some kind, but whatever it is, it has a feeling of rightness about it.

If it doesn’t feel right, it’s the ego trying to get you off path.

It should always feel right and true to you.

“Right” does not necessarily mean “good” as you might have to make a decision that is not easy, like for example letting go of a person, habit/crutch, or situation (or teaching, Guru, whatever it may be).

If you’re unsure, do a new meditation about that specifically (although doubt usually means “don’t”, but to know this you need to know the difference between true doubt and doubt of the ego).

Always consult within, and the more you do this, the communication will become more and more clear and begin to flow automatically and instantly all the time.

Connecting and spending time in nature is always good.
Spending time in nature is always good, it’s our greatest teacher. Stillness and nature always helps you get in touch and connected with yourself and Truth.

Transformational coaching

Transformational sessions with Maria

Any kind of suffering such as stress, fear, self-doubt and struggle comes from being out of alignment with yourself and the flow of Life.

Freedom, inner calm and confidence comes from moving into a perspective beyond your limited self and into a place of alignment.

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.

Carolyn W. Asheville, NC, USA

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

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.

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. 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!
