Interacting With People In The Dream State

.. Can be extremely challenging at times!

As I mentioned in one of my previous articles, things has changed in my life and many things has happened within me that has changed the whole foundation of my beingness, or my core existence.

I have tried to write about this before a few times lately, but all my attempts has failed and I haven’t been able to put how I am experiencing life now into words that can explain it in a way that is understandable. 

Even now, as I’m writing this, I am not sure I will succeed this time either but I will do my best.

I know I have been saying that we are never “done” in the awakening process (as consciousness is ever-expanding) but there is a place in all this that we come to where there is a sense of ‘being done’.

I’ll try to explain this – and it’s important to understand that we are not ‘done’ even if there is a .. – crap, words just stop this whole thing from coming through me.

It’s beyond description so let’s try another angle.

Okay, so this is what has happened;

A while ago I began to sense that something is going on with me, in me, and I knew a transformation was taking place as I could feel it in my whole being, and one morning I woke up and I just knew that I was “done”.

I was finished; done. The “I” was ‘finished’, if that makes any sense.

With this new awareness I realized that I had shifted into the awakened state (silly word, but that’s all I can use right now), and you all know (who have followed my blog for the past years) that I have always been very careful to not use the words that would describe me as “being awakened” as I knew that I was in the awakening process.

And yes, I had awakened in a sense before that too (there are many layers to this whole process), but I knew I wasn’t “done”, that there was more to come, and in this process sincerity (towards ourselves) is an absolute necessity because who are we fooling but ourselves if we pretend to be something we’re not?

We only cheat ourselves if we think we are ‘done’ when we know we are not.

Most often people want to be ‘done’ so that they can wear the “badge of enlightenment” but that has never been my aim, I didn’t even choose this path (of awakening), it chose me.

And I will probably smile with amusement at where I’m at right now a few years from now, fully knowing that we are all children in this, sometimes even like new-born babies.  

So I’m ruthlessly honest with myself (now and always) as I am only interested in the Truth, and to be honest I have never had any ideas about what awakening is as the concept was absolutely foreign to me when I was thrown into this years ago. 

What I do know though is that the world is full of people who are having completely false ideas about what it is; it’s not what most people think it is at all. 

And I’m not in this for you, or anyone else for that matter, not even for myself; but only the Truth.

It has me. I am being done by It. 

I have even said straight out (to Life) that I rather die than live a lie, and I meant it, and I still do.

So, .. anyways;

I woke up one morning a while ago, knowing that “I” was ‘done’, that I was no longer in the process of awakening but that I had awakened.

Now, this is not the end!

There were no feelings of ‘wow’ or ‘whoopi’ or anything like that; it was just a clear knowing that “I am done”, and that was that. 

And this is very important for all of us to know and understand; we are not ‘done’ even if we are done.

There is always a continuous unfolding and deepening of the awakening, and enlightenment is, as I have said before, something we mature into, and that process can take years. (Even lifetimes). 

But again; as I have said before; I am not interested in enlightenment in the sense that I’m not aiming for it, it’s more of a knowing that that’s where I’m headed but “I” have no say in when that will become my existence (in lack of a better word) as it can happen in this life or some other lifetime, I don’t know and I don’t even care.

This is all about Life taking “me” for a ride so I don’t know how it will unfold.

(And we are all moving towards awakening so I don’t perceive myself to be special in any kind of way). 

But I do know that I have shifted into a new state of being, and that this state is the awakened state (again, silly word to describe “this”), and with that said I also know that there are stages and levels in this too, so I’m not ‘done’-done, but I am done.

If this makes any sense 🙂

It’s not yet abiding (established fully) as I can sense myself going in and out of pure awareness where I experience myself as, .. well, awareness, where there is no “me”. 

I just “am”, and sometimes I can look around in the room I’m in for example and there is no “I”, there is no ‘self’, only awareness.

And with this new way of being (which doesn’t show on the outside as you don’t become ‘more spiritual’ that many people tend to think) and when I have to interact with people in the old life so to speak (or beingness) the interaction with people in the dream state is sometimes really painful to me. 

Imagine that you are awake in a dream, or in a nightmare (that the ego level consciousness is); where you see other people completely unaware of Reality, where they are suffering through life (and some of them even believe that they are happy), wanting to drag you into it, and everything you see they can’t see, and everything they see, you can’t relate to anymore.

You move and walk and talk in the dream state but from a whole different level of being that has no relation to that world anymore.

You have awakened to the awareness that is beyond the dream state of ego consciousness and you have awakened to a whole new life which is pretty much the opposite of the life you once knew.

Everything others see, you don’t see anymore. (You see the falseness of what others perceive as true and real).

Everything you see, they can’t see. (Or even know exist).

And so when you are in a situation where you are more or less forced to be in an environment (as we all can be at times) where there are dense ego’s around you it can be very challenging because a dialogue is nearly impossible.

Just as their reality doesn’t make any sense to me, mine does not make any sense to them, and unless you have realized Truth, not until then will you have the slightest idea of what I’m talking about, and you can’t get here so to speak (not that there’s anywhere to “get”) unless you realize that your world is an illusion,..

.. And you can’t come to the realization that your world is an illusion unless you relentlessly inquire into Truth about everything in your existence. 

Ignorance is not only when you don’t know (or have awareness of) something but when you do know something but that which you ‘know’ is not true. 

That’s what ignorance is; when you think you’re seeing clearly but your (spiritual) eyes are actually closed, and unless you are willing to have your whole world crushed into nothingness (by Truth) you won’t be able to move beyond the reality you now perceive as being true and real.

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 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.

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!

  1. Beautifully written, the experiences that you’re sharing are absolute gifts, one thing that I really love about them is that despite how other-wordly and seemingly bizarre these experiences are, you’ve expressed in such a way that is so down to earth and sincere that they become easy to relate to. I am cheering for you in every step of your wonderful journey, keep uploading that sweet soul of yours Maria xoxoxo

    Love

  2. Thank you Yunfan, I’m glad to hear that what I shared in this article is easy for you to relate to as it’s a difficult thing to explain using words.

    I feel that it’s important that I do try though because this whole process of awakening is not an easy one at times.

    It’s not all about bliss and cosmic exaltation and so on that the majority of people on the spiritual path think it is; it’s literally a process where you die and where you’re born again (in Spirit).

    Right now I’m in a very good place within myself and I’m very inspired at the moment too and as I’m going with this flow and enjoying it to the fullest, articles are produced out of it and if people can relate to them then that makes me really happy, so thank you for sharing that with me 🙂
