Letting Go Of Your Story

Letting go of the story in the mind.

There’s a huge liberation when we realize that we are without past and future, that they only exists in the mind.

This doesn’t happen by will-power, but by realization and direct experience of the revelation that there is only Now to ever deal with. (And enjoy).

To let go of our stories then becomes easy.

Not by denial of them, as in self-betrayal, pretending that there are no issues to address, that everything is just fine while bottling things up within yourself.

Not by suppressing your feelings and thoughts, but not indulging in them either.

To not follow thoughts slows the mind down and it gets back in the natural flow again.

Thoughts are not personal, but we have learned (been programmed to) to believe they are important and true, so we obsessively follow them, thinking they will lead to some kind of clarity. They won’t.

They are not personal, but rather “things” that come and go as clouds in the sky, and it’s only when we think we are them, or that they are important somehow, that we get hooked by them and from that it’s just snowballs.

One thought follows another and we are totally oblivious about the fact that they have nothing to do with the real self at all!

Life is, and then mind comes in with it’s comments and opinions about it and the egoic mind is never happy with the present moment so it creates problems where there aren’t any. It makes the present moment wrong somehow, it wants it to be different.

But by the simple recognition that this moment is all there is, we can see it right now by stopping everything and simply become aware of this moment and we’ll see clearly that all else only exists in the mind – it’s all a mind-made story!

Both our sad stories, and our happy stories; they are all nothing but stories.

Only from this point of awareness are we able to respond to that which is right now, that which actually is.

Sometimes there’s forgiveness that needs to be done, even when knowing it’s of the so called past, because the contamination of unforgiveness always happens in the Now.

Sometimes we need to get away from a toxic environment, not because of what someone did to us yesterday or might do to us tomorrow, but because of what is happening right now in the moment where we stand and experience the poisonous energy we are surrounded by. We take the step we are inclined to take in each moment.

What is the natural next step to take when standing in the midst of toxicity? It becomes obvious doesn’t it?

But then the mind comes in and somehow manage to justify why not to go in the direction of our hearts, and oftentimes it throws in some kind of threat about loosing or not getting something if we go with it, which is always about the past or future and never about the Now.

Only Spirit lives in the now, and that is who we are.

Victim-hood must be thrown away. The story of ‘poor me and awful you’ must be let go of.

Not to look forward to a future where you one day will become free, but to be free right now from the mind-made hell where we think we are prisoners of our circumstances.

The mind with it’s thinking and beliefs is what strains us and makes us into slaves.

Even the happy story needs to be let go of! The happy story is always about projecting into the future, and who fantasies about the future? The ego.

Complaining has to stop. Complaining is the minds way of justifying and marinading itself (thus hooking you into the emotions that the thoughts create) in the misery it makes life out to be. The story about life being unfair and not to your liking and that is should be different from what it is.

The ego makes up a story about the situation and if there’s identification with the ego (the person one imagines oneself to be) then there is suffering. Not because of the situation itself, but by the story we tell ourselves about it.

How to free ourselves from the story?

Question it!

Question everything about it until the realization of Truth hits you.

Problems come from thinking.

Nothing is a problem until you say it’s so, have you ever thought about that?

The real you is completely untouched by the stories of “I”; your story doesn’t define you – the true self is always only here and now.



This journey with you has been amazing

Words cannot fully express the profound impact of my session with you – it has been nothing short of magical. You helped me remove the blockages that held me back, helped me recognize my true worth, and providing so much insight that has been truly life-changing!

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.

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

You are truly a gift to us all!

I can’t even begin to express how much I have gained internally after my session with you. You have been an instrument of peace in my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

You have really made a difference in how my mind works

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.

The whole session felt as if it was operating on another level

If you can trust one thing in your life right now, trust Maria. You can trust her with your heart and soul. It’s hard to explain, the whole session felt as if it was operating on another level. I’ve never had that kind of experience before. It just felt so much bigger than I anticipated. I can tell you with absolute honesty and conviction that having a session with Maria is life-changing!

– Lisa, USA

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

The feeling of peace and freedom is priceless

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.

Now I know what is creating my reality

I’m overflowing with gratitude and joy! Life has changed dramatically for me after our time together. I have truly realized on a fundamental level what is creating my reality and it has given me confidence for the first time in my life to finally be ME, I feel liberated to be my authentic self!

— J. Carlson

Beyond grateful for the transformational journey we shared

Maria, I am beyond grateful for the transformational journey we shared. it was nothing less than a miracle that has allowed me come into who I really am. I wake up every morning with a big smile on my face, feeling immense gratitude for just being alive, I can’t explain it, I´m just enjoying this fully. Your guidance has so profoundly changed my life, and I cannot thank you enough.

— R. Los Angeles, USA

Something happened within me that I cannot explain

During and 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.

– A.

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 able to see where you are at in your journey and can 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 had a complete turnaround to my situation

I 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!
