We must be willing to let go of the life we planned..

“We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us” Joseph Campbell

This is true, and this is also the most challenging thing anyone can do.

It requires trust in oneself, because even trust will be have to let go of (before it transforms to a different kind of trust) and the whole process of letting go and surrendering every aspect of existence can take years.

But once the last little thread that has been held on to has been let go of (the little self, our habits and addictions, our fears, beliefs, plans and goals, even our businesses and so forth), when all that has been relinquished then life opens up in magical ways.

I know it sounds a bit woo woo, but that’s the only word I can use to describe it.

Life becomes magical.

Everything falls into place.

Things you had let go of years ago comes back, but in a transformed and more mature version.

New ideas come to you that you feel excited about, but this time you feel they are not yours, they are the desires of Life itself and you get to carry them out, and it feels like a huge honor and joy to serve in that way.

Life becomes so clear, the communication (intuition) is so deliciously clear and you are buzzing with incredible inspiration and appreciation for life that you sometimes don’t know what to do with yourself.

All you can do is to say a heartfelt Thank You. 

There is incredible joy.

Heart is swelling over with love and you just want to hug the whole world.

Every person and living being you see is beautiful beyond words and nature is so noble and breathtakingly majestic, and every little lovely flower you see has never been so exquisitely beautiful in your eyes before.

There’s an increasing sense of enjoyment of the current of where life is taking you – you feel you’re right in your beingness and when we are right with ourselves, life is right too, and very, very kind and generous.

What is asked of us is to literally surrender all and step into the totally unknown without any roadmaps whatsoever.

At first it’s scary (because its completely new terrain), we get tested on the way; our commitment is tested, we are challenged to the core to see if our integrity is kept intact and if we stay true to our values.

And as we stay true to ourselves through it all, then suddenly it’s like a miracle happens.

There is a feeling of coming full circle

The hero’s journey will take you back to the beginning and into the world again but from a different place within.

You come to realize that the person who started the journey is not the same person who enters the door to the new life – there has been a complete transformation that has taken place over the years when you went through your moments of bliss and joy as well as the moments of frustration and utter fear.

All your past failures and frustrations were there in order to lay the foundation for the new level of living and beingness that you now can enjoy.

All those experiences that you went through has given you gifts that you are now able to contribute to others.

All because you were willing to surrender and let go of the “I” with all its desires, fears and attachments.

Don’t settle with anything less than the truth and that is what you get:



The heart knows more than the mind – and the mind takes direction from the heart and not the other way around as in you thinking or figuring something out and then you go to your feelings to get something confirmed.

This is not about your feelings.

Intuition is deeper than that. It’s deeper and more impersonal than most might think. It’s not really about ‘you’.

It’s about what life wants to do through and as you: When Life Wants To Change You


The ego panics and asks:

“What if I don’t get what I want, what if I loose what I have?!”

It will create all sorts of fears for you to get hooked on and entangled in – but know this; Thank God you don’t always get what you want!:

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.

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.

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!

– Sophie P

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!

— Sarah K.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

– Silvia, Marbella, Spain

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

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

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.
