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! 🙂

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’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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

– Owen, USA

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.

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!
