Glad To Be In Munnar! (Kerala)

Despite the grueling bus trip from Trivandrum to Munnar here in Kerala the last couple of hours or so of the journey up the mountains was incredibly beautiful, so beautiful that I got all teary and emotional a few times.

I just can’t hold back my tears when I see such beauty and after had been in the city for a week or so I was so ready to get back to nature again!

And I totally get why Kerala is called “God’s Own Country” now.

The bus had no windows so all the smell from nature, flowers, spices etc was so welcoming and I felt so happy that I was going to spend some time up in the mountains.

As we got closer to Munnar the temperature changed from really hot to wonderfully cool (well, cooler) and that is something I had really looked forward to 🙂

I arrived yesterday around 4-5 PM I think it was, exhausted and hungry after the long bus trip (8-9 hours) so I didn’t do much at all except from having some food, a shower and lots of water.

Today I have been out exploring (see photo album link at the bottom of the post) and enjoyed just being here.

And it was so nice to go to bed last night and sleep without the noise of a fan.

So wonderfully quiet and I had the window open so it was a bit chilly too (which I loved) and no mosquitoes at all!

The weather here in Munnar is a bit cooler than everywhere else in Kerala (especially at night) and I really enjoy it and I look forward to some rain for the next few days too 🙂

Munnar weather for the next week. I just buy myself an umbrella and go out and enjoy the smell of nature when it rains, I love that! 🙂

I must say that I feel very blessed. Even now that I write this I’m overwhelmed by a feeling of gratitude.

Life is so good to me, so generous.

It’s all from the smallest things (that do not ever go unnoticed by me) to the bigger things; I constantly feel that I’m in this wonderful flow with life and that I’m taken very well care of.

This morning I woke up and the thought came to me that I feel like I’m been ‘given back multiplied’, that I’m receiving now, for all those meager years when I gave and gave but rarely received anything.

I don’t feel that way anymore.

For instance, I remember all the years I couldn’t go to a restaurant, when I had to say no to people because I couldn’t even afford a cup of coffee, and now I get to eat at restaurants everyday!

Another thing; my room got upgraded for no apparent reason so instead of me now having a standard budget room, I was upgraded to a luxury room!

For the next 9 days or so I get to have this wonderful room that has flat-screen TV, new, fresh pillows and blanket and room service etc.

I love that! 🙂

Within me I’m saying Thank You all the time. All the time.

I’m so grateful.

Anyways, .. back to Munnar! 🙂

Munnar is a small town that is known for its tea plantations and they also make their own chocolate here (which I have to try as soon as possible!) and they have lots of spices too (plantations I think).

There are small shops here everywhere that sell them and a museum too.

Things to do here in Munnar are things that I enjoy doing; hiking, trekking, and just being in nature.

It is advised however to not go hiking by yourself in the mountains because there are elephants and other wild animals here and you don’t want to meet them while being on your own without a guide.

We’ll see what I do about that, if I listen to the advise or not.. 🙂

There are beautiful waterfalls nearby, and you can take sightseeing trips too but I haven’t looked into those things yet, just spoken briefly with people here so I have to do some further research on all that.

There’s a sunrise trek too, the same type I did when I was in Rishikesh but I probably can’t do that because it’s too cold at 4:30 AM and I don’t have any warm clothes with me.

Anyways, it doesn’t matter.

I’m so happy to just be close to nature and the mountains 🙂

Next weekend on Sunday I’m leaving Munnar and will be going to Fort Cochin which is about a 4 hour long bus-ride from here (or something like that).

It’s by the coast and a touristy place so I can swim in the ocean there, which will be wonderful too! 🙂

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.

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

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!
