What is Inspirational Writing?

The past week or so I have got some emails and questions about inspirational writing so I thought I’d write a little something about that.

I received a question from one of my readers:

Writing … What is really happening?

When we write down our goals, or any meaningful symbols, or words like love or hate. What’s going on an energetic or spiritual level?

These questions made me think back on how my beliefs were before (in the past) and how they are now.

I used to be a huge goal-setter, I had massive to-do-lists and I was very specific in all my plans, goals and visions.

Hey, I’m a triple earth sign and born in the year of the ox, so I’m literally the ‘worker/builder of the Zodiac’ and I’m also kind of a perfectionist and detail oriented, so you can only imagine.. haha 😀

I had long lists about everything, I made very detailed vision boards and so on, and when I take action (still today) I’m a force to be reckoned with!

And then I had my awakening, and after that all that lost their meaning.

Poof! Gone.

At the time in my own personal journey it played a huge part as it allowed me to pinpoint my values and standards too as it’s obviously not only about material stuff and my goals of becoming successful in my life, so my answer to the question on how writing down goals affects us on an energetic level would be that if you feel drawn to write down your goals and if it feels right for you to do that, then go ahead and do that.

It may be exactly what you need to do at this point in your life.

I always emphasize the importance of following our own flow and we are all on different places in our own personal development, so there’s really not a specific path to follow but our own.

I used to be into symbols too; I’m a Reiki Healing Master so I have worked a whole lot with the different Reiki symbols for example, but that too has lost their importance in my life, they mean nothing to me today.

But they can still mean something to you, whatever symbols we’re talking about.

What happens on an “energetic level” I would say that if it resonates with you, it obviously touches your core being somehow, so go with that. What happens is that it resonates with your heart, which is always Your Truth.

The same with words.

For some the word “hate” is very strong, and some people don’t use that at all, I rarely do myself because to me it’s kind of a strong word, but that’s just me.

Others may not be affected emotionally at all by the word.

While some people easily say “I love you” to basically whomever, maybe I select more carefully who I utter those words to, and so on. There’s no right and wrong in this.

It’s really about how we personally think and feel about things – there aren’t any rules or specific guidelines that has the same meaning to everyone.

And we all change all the time, our opinions change, thought systems transform etc, so I always encourage people to look for the answer within themselves. The only consistent Truth is the inner voice, always.

What matters, really, is our own individual emotional response to everything, and that includes writing and reading (words and symbols) as well.

What resonates with each and everyone, what the gut-feelings is saying, and our own inner guidance is what we essentially always should follow, and that’s what happens on a spiritual level as well as an “energetic” level, it all depends on if it touches the truth within ourselves.

Hope that answered your question! (The reader who asked the question)

A few have also asked me about writing this past week and because I have noticed the focus on that specific theme I thought I’d write a few words about that too.


Where Do I Get My Inspiration From and How Does My Writing Happen?

To me life itself is the source of inspiration, and life can be both creative and destructive, it’s all a part of our human experience and I write a lot about my own experiences, both the good and ‘bad’. (And sometimes the ugly too!:-)

The writing itself usually just ‘happens’, like right now, I do my two-finger-typing like a crazy woman, the words just comes out rapidly by themselves.

I know the writing is done through me, even though my personal stuff comes through as well.

Especially when I’m annoyed or irritated about something, provoked etc, that really gets me going and I love it!

Another thing is that I always get massively inspired when I’m out walking and sometimes I literally have to run home so that I can write it all out immediately, but oftentimes I write keywords that comes up and short sentences/ideas/insights on my cellphone and then when I get home again I write an article from them.

Also, I usually get inspired after I have meditated too, sometimes in the middle of meditation and I have to get up and write right away.

It has even happened that I have woken up in the middle of the night or very early in the morning by the urge to write and it’s such a strong nudge/drive that I can’t ignore it.

I have tried to, but it just keeps nudging me and finally I have to get up and write the article. 😀

That’s a little bit about how the writing process manifests in my life, I’m sure others have their own relationship with their writing that is personal to them. (Feel free to share below in comments!)

My number one advice would be to never force the writing, or write because you feel you ‘have to’ or anything.

If writing is uninspired, it shows and it can be felt, it doesn’t touch hearts, and that is kind of the point with writing isn’t it?

(That it is from one heart to another).

To find inspiration when you don’t feel it: look at your life, it’s full of inspiration!

Even our struggles and sorrows can be a source of inspiration. Just as our joys and happy moments can be.

Look around your own life, what’s happening in the world around you and your own life?

Go out for a long walk in silence, meditate etc, and it will eventually come – inspiration can strike any time when we least expect it! 🙂

You can also ask your higher self: What wants to be expressed through me right now, what am I to share? and then listen for the answer and insights.

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 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.

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.

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!
