My Encounter With Jesus Christ

Some years ago when I lived in Spain I was going thorough some really difficult times financially and had to look for a job to be able to support myself, and with my pretty much non-existing language knowledge in Spanish I had to take whatever work I could get.

I asked everywhere, day after day, and finally one day I was out biking as usual and was drawn to a Hotel with a huge golf course and it was a very large complex and area so I though “maybe they need someone in the kitchen or something, I’ll ask”.

So I went there and asked, left my contact info and when leaving I didn’t feel I would have any chance because I didn’t speak Spanish and person I had talked to kind of let me know right away that I should just keep looking elsewhere because of that.

But then someone called me shortly after and invited me to come to have a chat so I went, and to make a long story short, I’ve got a job as a cleaner for a few weeks.

This was very fortunate for me, many people were desperately looking for work at this time in Spain and without Spanish skills, you were more or less doomed to unemployment and homelessness if you didn’t have an income, so you couldn’t exactly pick and chose to say the least.

Many people struggled and businesses was closing down everywhere everyday. Some places looked like ghost towns because of the economical situation is Spain at that time. It was very hard to get a job.

But I believed that I would get a job, despite what people said around me; things like ‘you will never get a job, not now with the recession and all, you don’t know any Spanish so you can just forget it and go home to Scandinavia instead’.

A cleaning job was not what I wanted at all, but I didn’t see I had any choice due to my financial situation; I had to support myself. So I was happy, and thought to myself that I can do that for a month or so, no problem!

I was brought together with a cleaning-lady group and I kind of felt at this point that this job had been given to me by grace – that’s another story that I can share another time.

All of the ladies spoke Spanish only – so we couldn’t communicate – I mean, I knew very few words and phrases and only one of them could speak as much English as I could Spanish, so it was a very interesting experience in that sense.

We had fun with it at times, but I felt very much out of place and could sense and get from some of the words that they were talking about me at times and that wasn’t very comfortable when you were stuck in the same room.

We just didn’t match, and it was a humbling experience to walk into hotel rooms where the “rich and famous” so to speak were sunbathing on their huge luxurious balconies and there I came with the duster and mop. 

I felt that I should be the one who was being catered for – it was at times embarrassing for my ego, especially one time when someone I knew a little bit came to the Hotel complex to enjoy a glass of Chardonnay and suddenly sees me in my way-too-big cleaning-lady shirt on. 

I felt that I should have sat there too and enjoyed a glass of wine and not be cleaning a Hotel…

(And no, there is nothing wrong with being a cleaner, it just wasn’t anything I dreamt of doing)

With time I grew to really feel out of place and I was full of anxiety and I turned and tossed my body around in bed at night, slept very badly – thinking that this is so wrong, this is not what I’m suppose to do, and I prayed and cried and I was just feeling very very out of my element.

I was seriously thinking of leaving, I just couldn’t take it anymore.

Then one night, it was early in the morning, at 4-5 sometime, that Jesus himself came to me in a dream.

It was not an ordinary dream, and it wasn’t really a ‘dream’-dream, it was more like a very clear image of a being that stood in front of me and I could clearly see it was Jesus.

He was standing there in front of me where I was laying there in my bed.

I felt so peaceful in his presence, so calm, I wasn’t the least afraid or scared, and the whole thing that happened was very real. I knew I wasn’t dreaming.

Then he says to me: “You can either resist this or go with it, but it is a part of a plan. It is a part of a plan, so it’s your choice; resist it of just go with it”. 

And I immediately felt this incredible peace coming over my whole being when I got the message and understood on a deep level that this was in fact a part of a plan, what plan exactly I had no idea, I just knew that what he said was true and then he disappeared. 

I was full of energy, love and joy and couldn’t sleep anymore, and that morning when it was time to go to work, I biked faster than ever before, actually looking forward to it, and I almost danced through the days, I was so full of joy and reassurance that this job was divinely given to me as a gift.

The rest of my weeks that I worked there went through with happiness, laughter and lightness of heart! 🙂

And that only because of Jesus and what he said to me.

I would LOVE to hear if you have had similar encounters with either Jesus or others and what it did to you.

My own meeting with Jesus is something I will never forget and I will always remember it with tremendous gratitude.

When sharing your story too, it can help others that are going through something difficult to continue keeping the faith, and help reinforce the trust that is already built in each and everyone of us but that can diminish in times of struggle.

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

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

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

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

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!

— 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.

Andrew B, San Diego, CA, 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

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

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

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

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.

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.

Transformational Prayer Process by Maria Erving


  1. Usama

    That’s a very wonderful experiment , it is kind of a powerful lucid dream ,congratulation , may be I can go through such dream , I am working on it

  2. Hi Usama,

    Thank you for your comment.

    It wasn’t a lucid dream; a lucid dream is when you’re in a dream, knowing that you’re dreaming.

    It wasn’t even a dream as I described it in my post, and I don’t think it’s possible to “work on it” as you put it, it’s not something we can impose on ourselves.

    I truly saw it as a gift that was given to me, and it was very real (not a dream).

    I hope you too will have such an experience some day in your own life as it was very beautiful and I wish that for everyone – to feel the love and peace from an encounter like that.

    It was truly a beautiful thing to experience and receive.


  3. Adekoya Olalekan

    Why do we always deceive ourselves and deceive others by been ungrateful to ALMIGHTY GOD and ascribing gratefulness to HIS creatures. Lets think deeply.

  4. Hello Adekoya,

    Thanks for commenting, although I don’t know what you mean, so feel free to elaborate on your points of view to bring more clarity.



  5. Hi Lisa,

    Thanks for commenting.

    To answer your question: I don’t know.

    But I do know that when we start to see God in everything – it will be experienced also.

    (If we look for it; the beauty and love that is in everything and everyone; that’s God)

    Why I had this particular experience is outside of my logical understanding (so I can’t explain it to you), but that was how Life manifested itself to me at that time, in a way I needed to experience it.

    I think every moment is an invitation and opportunity to experience the divine (Or God/Source), only it comes (although it never really “comes and goes”; it’s always present) in different ways to different people at different times.

    When we stay open to how it expresses itself, it will also be seen and felt in the heart, but maybe not in a way that we had expected it to.

    God is always appearing itself (to all of us) – because Life is God.

    Hi Maria; thank you for your articles.

    A few days ago I had a vivid (very, very vivid) dream in the morning which woke me up in a shock. In my dream I was taking care of children and was wearing robes, and then I was told we all had to sit down (this was somewhere outdoors, like a field) because Jesus was coming to visit.

    Now I remember every single detail, including the creases on my robes. This is very unusual for me, I usually don’t remember anything, let alone such vivid details. Eventually a young man came over and sat down by a stone, and when looking into his face (it was Him!) I felt a mixture of pure love and pure innocence; so strong was the feeling that it woke me up in shock.

    I know about OBE’s and how they can most certainly look like dreams. I can’t say exactly what happened, but the last time I had such a vivid ‘dream’ was years and years ago.

    When I woke up I remember thinking that it was just ridiculous the way I could recall every single detail from the place and even facial features. It stayed with me all day and I told a dear friend of mine. There’s no doubt that something was most definitely out of the ordinary regarding this particular experience.

    Also, I’m Spanish – thought I’d let you know 🙂


  8. Hi Patri,

    You’re very welcome, glad you like them! 🙂

    Thank you also for sharing your special dream with us.

    What I described in my post though, wasn’t a dream, and I do know all about OBE’s (out of body experiences) as I have had them since childhood, and especially back then and in my early adulthood.

    There’s no similarity to what I described in my post to those (OBE) experiences.

    To your dream;

    Did you interpret the details you saw? (Dream interpretation).

    There might be some important messages for you there, although I’m guessing that the feeling of his presence and energy was the main purpose of your dream.

    Which is always wonderful – I love dreams myself and I dream pretty much every night.

    So you’re Spanish? I liked living in Spain a lot, especially because of the weather.

    Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

    All the best,

    Hallo Maria!

    what you say is very interesting, because it resonates with me for a couple of reasons- Mother Mary came to me in something which was like a dream, but was real, ( i will share it in full ) and because I also had to work cleaning jobs and other jobs, which I didn’t enjoy, but exactly these jobs got me through life and helped me meet my husband, who now takes care of me, when I don’t have a job. I work now anything that comes my way, except may be jobs that would hurt my back or cause any other health problem. I was the same little spoil girl like you. 🙂 Please, take my words with a smile. We are all equal and if we have to clean in order to feed ourselves, we have to! Thinking we don’t want to do this or that is not helpful in this world.

    This is why Jesus came to you, to tell exactly that.

    my story with Mother Mary.
    I was 17, sleeping in my home house in the summer, and a male voice , very authoritative woked me up, a voice, which i heard in my head:
    You will see the Mother of God.

    I realised i am fully awake, almost shaking with divine fear in my bed. It was dark and seconds passed in this darkness.

    Then She appeared in front of me. She was exuding something amazingly powerfull and optimistic, her dress was very modest brown robe, her hair uncovered, dark, her eyes brown, her face of natural beauty, symmetrical and clean. Her age – 35-38 and as I was laying in bed, i thought she looks quite tall.

    She spread her hands towards me and said: I came my child for you. Here, only if you wish, you can come with me, I will carry you with me on my hands, like a baby.

    I tried to jump out of bed in her hands, but was paralysed. I said: Mother, I really want to come with you, but I cannot move.

    She said: It is not your time yet, don’t worry, when your time will come, I will come again for you, and will take you with me, on my hands, like a baby.

    The interesting thing was that i was seeing her with something like a light, which was coming from somewhere behind her, but was soft candle light, not dazzling or bright. I remember thinking that this light comes from her actually.

    Then she disappeared and I don’t remember to awake, I was again awake in my bed, shaking with Holy feelings.

    Next morning I learnt from my granny that it is the Day of Mary accension into Heaven according to the Orthodox church, because I am Orthodox by origin.

    Now, what would you make out of that? It is amazing!

  11. Thank you for sharing Milla.

    Yes, it’s beautiful how Life manifest itself in various shapes and forms for us – in ways that we can understand and relate to depending on where we are in our evolution, and in the exact time we need it.

    Life is amazing and beautiful.

    Wishing you and yours a joyful holiday season! 🙂


  12. milla

    Thank you for publishing my comment and for Holiday greetings! I wish you the same!

    your website is really full of very good and sound spiritual info. I spent last night may be an hour or more. I hope developing more insight through reading your posts, because I regards myself as a serious truthseeker and consecrate a lot of my free time on spiritual reading and things like that. But sometimes I don’t know is something has to happen to me – like a spiritual awakening, or as you say in one of your posts – we cannot force ourselves to awake, if it comes, it will come when we least expect…?

  13. Hello again Milla, and thank you for your holiday wishes 🙂

    I’m glad to hear you have found my website interesting.

    To answer you question; I would suggest that you didn’t even think about the awakening-part as that is none of our doing anyway.

    Just keep being here and now, doing the things that you feel inclined to do when it comes to your spirituality and let it lead you. Sometimes that also includes doing nothing but being still. You will know what to do in every moment when you develop the trust in your intuition.

    Only when the mind comes in and interpret things to be this or that way, or gives anything a specific meaning, is it when any kind of confusion arises.

    No need to know any how’s or what if’s etc 🙂 Your sincerity/commitment and desire to know the Truth is enough.

    This is where Life is, right now.

    You might like the article I posted today, I don’t know if you have already read it, but here it is:

    hi there, these are definetly the end days. Jesus is making himself more and more reachable. i went for bible studies a year ago and wantd to know and learn more about Jesus. our teacher who was a senior pastor , who was very educated, however would always hav favorites in class and divert from the main focus. i was vewy dispondent one day and that night changed my life. i had the most amazing experience with Jesus. i dreamd that all the students in class left to go outside to meet Jesus. i was the last person to go outside. when i got to the garden, there were many student surrounding him and near him where all the senior pastors. i was in th back and trying to see him. he was with white robes sitting under a tree with a big book on his lap. he picked up his hand and called me to the front. I walked to the front and as i got close i fell too my face and startd weeping. he held my hand with such love- iv never experienced that kind of genuine love and he made me feel the hole in his hand. i looked up too see his face and only could see his glory shining. God wants use to always remember the real reason behind us seeking him, he loves us and died for us. U may think u the least sometimes, but God sees us differently. He does judge us on how much education we have instead he judges us by our heart. I am so blessd to know h.

  15. Although I have a different view and perspective on Jesus and God I appreciate you sharing your story of Love that you experienced in the presence of Jesus.

    I know that Love too, it’s out of this world, pure divine, so thank you for sharing Jeanie.

  16. milla

    Hallo Jeanie,

    your nightdream is absolutely amazing and shows Jesus in the way when He said: The last will be first;

    He doesn’t judge how much we are educated, beautiful, tall, rich or not; He is interested only in our heart and how much love we carry there;

    I think you are probably very happy to have this amazing meeting with Jesus and to be able to see His shining glory;

    Don’t worry, pastors are just human beings like us; they still have an enormous role to play in helping the people know the basics for Jesus; in a way if you felt left out by this pastor, Jesus made you fully welcomed in His Kingdom and embrace; this is the most important thing;



  17. God is Good, always
    > I know I have always been blessed by God.  I am blessed and love from the time I was born until the rest of my days. 
    > I was born in the basement somewhere in the Suburbs near Manila.  My father was a laborer in a cigarette factory and my mother is a housewife.  The midwife said i was born dead; i didn’t cry or breathe the first few moments of my birth.  Yet by some grace, I manage to take my first breath, cried, and live.
    > I was raised in our own house in the center of the Philippine Capital.  My father continued to be a laborer 2 cities away; while my mom focused her attention to raising their children – all 4 of us.  I am the eldest.  My parents are devout Catholics and we were brought up in the Faith.  I knew I had faith, but I knew it is a shallow one for it has not been tested.  All I know is that everything I prayed for were given to me: good school, good grades, scholarships.  We were comfortable.  Even if we do not have any excesses or the most recent toys, our parents were able to give us what we need.  We are not rich, but I was able to go to the Philippine’s best college by God’s grace.
    > In High School, I promised God I will do my best to become a lawyer.  After college, He used my Aunt to send me to one of the best Law schools in Manila.  It is while in Law school that I experienced trials; trials that challenged my Faith for 4-5 years.
    > The test of my faith started in Law school.  In law school, I got my first heartbreak.  During my 3rd year in Law School my aunt decided not to send me to school anymore.  I was so close to finishing the law and becoming a lawyer yet the opportunity to finish it passed by me.  My father resigned from his job and used his money to send me to school. He drained his money after a year so I had to work.  I worked for the family of 7. It is while I was starting out in a job when we discovered my father had cancer.  It is during this time that we experienced the greatest famine of our lives.  The next 3 years were the toughest.  The first year, I got out of my job and continue on with my business of selling houses.  That year was tough, my sales are down, and I need to provide for my family.  We ended up selling our furniture. We sold my law school notes and reviewers to the junk shop. We lived on USD 0.40 a day.  We are mostly vegetables from our garden, some rice.  There are days when we thought and hoped we will never wake up. We borrowed money from our friends, some from our relatives.  But as much as possible, we tried not to borrow.  We endured. 
    > My father, bless his soul, endured these hardships like a man should.  We knew there is no one to help us with his sickness, no one to help us. We prayed. Yet there are times I cry myself to sleep talking to God, asking Him for help.
    > 3 years after that experience, we were able to get ourselves out of the rut.  My siblings learned our business and they started working on it with me.  We started to get known in the real estate business and we started to build our business with good clients.  Yet our Dad’s sickness worsened. In January 2012, he died in peace with the knowledge that his children have learned from life and can take care of each other.
    > In all these, I know God is watching and He has never abandon us.  The test of our faith was tough, it still makes me cry sometimes.  Yet in times of hunger, when we were at our worst, by some miracle we will be getting provisions – food, money for the bills.  We have never experienced our utilities being cut in those impoverished times.  When our father was dying and even when he died, help was there from our friends and relatives.  When lean times come for business, there will always be a sale to save us from going hungry again. 
    > God’s grace has shaped us into who we are today. And I know and have faith that by God’s grace we will be able to do what He desires for us. We believe that this is what He wants:  “He wants to prosper us and to bless us; To keep us safe and not to harm us; to give us hope and a future.”
    > Truly, God’s love is abundant and it never fails. Nothing can keep it away from Him. Even death cannot overcome.  I have seen God and felt Him in every step of my life. 

  18. Sheryl, Thank you for sharing bits from your own personal story, I hope and know that it will be encouraging for many to read.

    The love of God/consciousness/Life doesn’t have to be a ‘physical’ appearance or encounter, although that is sometimes the way it expresses itself to us (or itself) as it did to me with my Jesus-experience, it can be to feel him/it/her in our hearts every moment of life as well. (For the simple obvious reason that we are That).

    It’s always present and shows itself in billions of ways in every moment. Trust helps us see that more clearly.

    I’m sorry to hear about your dad, but I’m glad that he went in peace and I hope that he didn’t suffer much pain.

    I’m so glad to hear your business is flourishing Sheryl, assuming it is anyway:) We have been in touch for a few years now on and off on the social media and I know that your faith has always been there.

    Thank you again for sharing. Your story will be uplifting and encouraging for many to read.

    I believe that’s a part of why we go through the things we go through, to be able to inspire and uplift others by sharing the experiences.

    I’ve had two experiences with Jesus my first experience was I was praying for 30 minutes or so then suddenly I felt this tingling through my body I felt like I was at peace, happy, safe, protected, and calm. My second experience was the same as before but with greater intensity then suddenly I saw jesus on a cross with the sun shining down on him I asked him what was my purpose he said spread the word then I asked about my mom’s miscarriage Michael Scott he said he is safe then he told me I need to love myself more not to put myself down.

  21. I can imagine that was a beautiful experience Brandon, thank you for sharing.

    That’s exactly what Jesus (God/Truth) has for us; the peace, calmness and the feeling of being safe and taken care of.

    The love is out of this world and we cannot not believe what is conveyed can we:)

    It’s a total and complete reassurance of all being well and with that comes ‘the peace that passeth all understanding’.

    Hello Maria,

    It seems when you think you alone you are not, Jesus is here to tell us we are not alone!! Believe in him God our father in HEAVEN.

    I had a dream of Jesus, I know it was him. I was in a great big what I thought was a hall. No one was in there but this one gentleman dressed in Brown robe, he waved at me to come over to where he was standing. And where he was standing was a this window. I couldn’t see his face but I knew it was Jesus, he put his arm around above by my shoulders he had me look into the window when I did I saw my whole life from being in my mothers womb every page was going so fast! but I caught each and every moment of my life from that point where I was standing. And he said to me ” Do you see your life?” I replied ” Yes” he said I am here to show you all that ” I thought for that moment he was going to say ” Here is all the pain you have conflicted on others” but he told me the opposite!! he said ” this is all the hurt and pain that people of conflicted on you- and I am here to tell you that you will be okay in life” With that I tried to see him but I felt so at peace, I woke up with such a indescribable beautiful feeling. I just cried a few minutes. I knew in my heart this was real and not a dream. A wanted to share this with my family which I did. But I wanted to reach out to others, about six months later I was watching t.v. an documentary and people telling their stories about meeting or seeing Jesus. There was man who experience the same dream I did!!! I wanted to reach out to him. Same story I just told he said the same, I don’t know why I didn’t reach out.

    I have other stories or dreams I could tell you that Jesus has let me experience and see. But that’s another time. I jus wanted to share this BEAUTIFUL EXPERINCE I had.

    Thank you Maria,

    Hi Maria 🙂

    My name is Maria too anyway 🙂 I am from the Philippines, thousand miles away from you. I started researching on the internet if there is anyone in the world who encountered the miracles of Jesus when I experienced something, and yes that is why I was able to see this site of yours.

    I am a christian and have a very strong faith with Jesus. I am in love with Jesus and I easily cry whenever I read the part on the Bible where He was crucified and tortured. and now there are articles that is trying to make us realize the pain Jesus went through, doctors explained that what is written in the Bible is not enough to describe the pain Jesus had, and reading these articles which are medically proven breaks my heart, He took all those pain for us. I was not influenced by any other people to be a christian, I am a catholic, I grew up in a catholic family, and all of a sudden, one day I felt the hunger of searching who Jesus really is, I know whenever I go to church they preach. explain the Bible and stuff, but still something is lacking, I dont know why. So I did my own researching, bought Bible of my own, version that is easy for me to understand since english is not my first tongue. Until I found Him.

    It is true that whenever you pray to Him He listens and He gives. I am so blown away and surprise that even little things I pray He listens. I did not see His actual face like you did, so lucky of you, He goes in my dreams too though whenever I have a questions or call Him in the middle of my darkest part of my life “before”, because when He touched my heart and soul, I am revived. EVery morning I wake up, I see the world beautifully, and feel so much joy in my heart, I get bullied and discriminated because I am not beautiful, im short and not an attractive woman, but now I am just so thankful with how I look and how God created me. it is weird but I dont know I just felt it!

    I cant even count how many times he answered my prayers so as long as I pray without a doubt and 100% trust and faith ( no buts and worries) . I was on my way to work. I have few coins left in my purse and it isnt enough to take me to work and atm is at work! I was already in the tricycle ( public transportation here in philippines) I checked my purse, pocket, and checked pockets on my bag too, I need 5 pesos more to get to work, I need 2 rides to get to work, 1 tricycle and 1 jeepney, I ride the jeepney although I know I do not have enough money anymore, I dont know why I ride the jeepney, I pray a little prayer and all of sudden a thought just came to my mind to check on my purse again, checked it and saw a 5 peso coin, I do not tell this story to anyone because I know they wont believe, this is why i searched for people who have encountered miracles of the Lord even in little things. I am sure I checked my purse when I was in the tricycle, and all of a sudden there is a 5 peso coin right after I say a prayer. however I kept saying in my prayer that ” okey i know Jesus will give, I know because He listens” Im not asking for too much, just 5 pesos just to get to work, it is not easy here to ask random stranger for 5 pesos because this is a third world country, people will think Im a scam. I just know when I feel like nobody is willing to hel, God is to the rescue. I have tons of things to share maybe some other time because I am at work now. but that is God’s help. I wanted to take a picture of the coin I saw because I know it isnt an ordinary coin, its from God’s grace, but people would find me weird seeing me taking photo of the coin.

    I am planning to start a journal just to keep a record of all my prayers that was answered. it is so powerful and mind blowing!

  29. Hi Maria! 🙂

    Thank you for sharing your experience; it was beautiful to read.

    And I think it was a really great thing for you to do your own research into who God is, that’s how we find “him”.

    To go within, that’s where God resides and that’s where all our questions can be answered.

    I’m not religious myself and I believe the Bible is a psychological book (and not factual) and that Christ is a state of consciousness and not a person.

    People like Jesus has existed for sure (and countless of Jesus-types has been crucified and killed throughout history), and they are still among us to this day and will always be.

    Today people are more open-minded though and more and more people wake up to who they really are.

    A very important point you brought up is the importance of believing that our prayers are heard and answered, because that’s why so many people’s prayers don’t get answered.

    They don’t really believe that they could, or they have self-doubt or have feelings of unworthiness etc. They might pray but their deeply set beliefs in their subconscious mind tells them that it’s not going to work, so it doesn’t.

    But when we believe and have faith (and positive expectations) in the power and wisdom within us (God) and that it wants only that which is wonderful for us, that’s when wonderful things happen. That’s why it was beautiful to read your testimony too. You didn’t doubt, you knew that there was help to be found by asking and knowing that you have been heard.

    God to me is eternal goodness and fulfillment in all areas of life and God wants to express itself through each and every person, but fear hold people back, and the belief in external powers. (Money, other people and entities, conditions, situations etc)

    There is only one power and that is the God within.

    You should definitely start journaling Maria! Why not even write a book about your experiences? Or blog? That would be a great idea! 🙂

    It doesn’t matter where you live or who you are, what your conditions look like or if you have money or not; when you’re doing the work that comes from your heart you are being supported and sustained by the God within.

    That has been my own experience in so many ways. We can’t go wrong when we follow our hearts calling.

    And you can have it all; I urge you to ask for your life to be a divine fulfillment (Affirmation: “My life is a divine fulfillment”) and to be a living example of how it is to live in the Kingdom of Heaven to glorify the God within and inspire and encourage others that they can live fulfilling lives too.

    Marvelous things start to unfold when we dare to ask for what is rightfully ours (=the best in life), and when we don’t hold back or ask timidly.

    I wish you all the best with your journal-writing Maria, and who knows where it will lead – If it is a desire that God wants to live and express through you, prepare for great things to unfold before you! 🙂

    All the best,


  30. Gabriel S.

    Hey Maria,
    Thank You for sharing, your testimony of your encounter with JESUS was very encouraging. I myself am going through a tough time and it was helpful to read how JESUS told you you could either resist or go with it because right now I am going through a bit of a tough time myself and I know that I can either continue moving forward or stop and I will choose to continue on even when things get difficult.

  31. I’m glad to hear that what I shared gave you hope and encouragement to keep moving forward Gabriel.

    Life/the Universe is beautiful in the way it speaks to us through different energy forms and divine encounters.

    This particular time it happened to be the image/vision of Jesus because I was focusing my mind on biblical/Christian things at that time in my life.

    If I had been focusing my mind on other religions or texts, I would have had a divine encounter with a different energy or form/image, such as for example the Buddha.

    Just to clarify that what happened to me has nothing to do with the character Jesus.

    It was a Divine encounter that has nothing to do with any beliefs or religions so this is not to be seen as a testimony of anything religious.

    This is where many people are lead astray from their own spiritual connection (as everything comes through your own being) because when these things happen they make the visions into “idols” that they then start to worship.

    So don’t look at this as a “testimonial of my encounter with Jesus”, because it wasn’t. I’m not religious.

    This was a Divine encounter I had; it’s just a way for the Universe/Life to speak and communicate with us, and it all originates from a deeper place within ourselves.

    So move on from here with the hope and encouragement you were meant to receive but stay free in your heart and mind by not getting entangled in any beliefs/belief-systems.

    Life flows so much more beautifully and wonderfully when you keep your mind fresh, clear, and open to all kinds of ways in which the Universe communicates with you.

    So make no “idols” out of what I shared in my article. 😊

    You are yourself both Jesus (the man) and the Christ (the consciousness).

    Hi Maria !

    I was googling “how to read signs” and I came across your article “how to read signs from the universe” (wich arrived at the perfect moment to realign myself)), and at the end there is a link to this article, which is for me an other wonderful sign.

    I tell you one of my story: in July I made a dream, I was landing in Barcelona. that’s it (I have very simple dreams). It looked like an important dream, but it was not a sign at this moment, as I have a lot of these dreams. When I woke up, I opened youtube, the first advertising was one of the airline compagny Vueling saying “you have never been so close to Barcelona”.
    Now that was a sign, and I was thinking “ok, there is something with Barcelona, what do you want to tell me”. One week after, I was drinking a coffee in Paris (where I live), I met a woman, we were quickly like friends. She proposed me to join her in Barcelona as she will be there for the Sonar Festival. I didn’t say nothing to her about my dreams and about Spain, I was completely amazed and laughing about what was happening.
    She told me that before Barcelona she will be in Granada, and as a “coincidence” I had holidays at this exact same moment. So I decided to listen to the universe and go to Granada for 6 days.

    And I had to find a place to stay ! So I was on Airbnb, trying to find the right place among all the offers. One drew my attention: one picture where showing a dragon on the room’s curtains (I love dragons), and an other one where showing a writing in the bathroom : “all you need is love”. I said “that’s it ! that’s the one !”. I have chosen this place.

    So I went to Granada, not to meet the woman I met in Paris, knowing she was one of the signs, knowing I just have to go there.
    I arrived very happy and excited, wide open to everything that would happen. To make the story short, the woman who was lodging me and I fell in love the very first day, the kind of love that goes beyond the boundaries of time and space. It was like finding the One again, in this life. This love was (is) so intense I couldn’t believe that was happening to me, we were crying, not able to understand what was happening. I came back in Paris and I decided to live in Granada

    It was 3 months ago, I am back in Paris, preparing the departure, I going in Granada the 12 October. I already found a place to live. And I know I will find a job quickly. But these days my mind took over and I found myself worrying a little about the job.
    But I stumbled upon your 2 articles, at the perfect timing. And of course these 2 are a amazing beautiful sign.
    Thank you, lovely messenger (yes Maria, you!), to remember me to let go of my mind, of my thoughts, of expectations. Thank you to remember to surrender. Thank you to remember me that life is perfectly unfolding.

    with love

  33. Julien,

    How I loved your story! Thank you for sharing it with us.

    Yes, Life is on your side, cheering you on when you follow the callings of your heart, and many times in amazing ways, even miraculous ways.

    I wish you all the best with your move to Granada (which is such a beautiful place, I love the nature and scenery there!) and I know that as you keep your connection to the Universe and yourSelf a priority, all will go well, maybe even better than what you could ever have imagined. 😊



  34. Wald

    I just want to say that I love you all.

    All is Love.

    Thank you!

    Thanks for sharing your experience, I also had a pleasant visitation of Jesus in my dreams in 1997, then I was going through a very big cross road of either to follow Jesus love and command concerning life partner or family pressure. I was in the dream in an open field with lots of people on the field, I saw heaven opened in the dream and I saw Jesus floating downwards, the cloth was sky blue, I try to call attention of others in the field with me to see but non was able to see him, He was floating mid air and I was trying all my best jumping up to touch him but I couldn’t, the face was so beautiful far better than a new born Baby, finally He spoke into my spirit and said I am the Love of God and He touched my hand, it was like touching a very high electric voltage, to my surprise I woke up instantly and found my self on the floor. Ever since I have been able to put my Total confidence and trust in His words and I have never been disappointed. After that experience He had visited me on other occasions in my dreams.

    Thank you for your post. “It is part of the plan, resist.. or stick with it.” is a beautiful and POWERFUL message. It will help people to let go more and let God. We look at our situations so negatively and through a thin lens when God sees the bigger picture. I’ve been given signs and wonders through dreams. I have yet to meet The King. One day 🙂

  37. You are so very very welcome Alexis, glad to hear it spoke to you.

    It’s important to remember though that the message I received, or the the things Jesus told me, that was specifically for me.

    Meaning; that whatever message you need to hear or receive might be different, depending on your own personal life situation and circumstances.

    I hope you too will have an experience like I had, it was profound and very beautiful, totally life-changing and precisely what I needed at the moment.

    I encountered Jesus when I was 7 years old it was very powerful ..everything was bright shining white everywhere… Jesus looked the way I expected he would look with the brown long hair and beard…there was an angel next to him and they were both sitting on thrones and all at the same time this powerful Love entered every bit of my body and all around me and it put me down on my knees in front of Jesus.. I believe he spoke to me a while but I don’t think I was supposed to remember consciously what he had to say… what I do know is that I have used that love to get through a very very hard life… I just could always remember that he loved me so much and so powerfully that you can’t even imagine.. when you love someone you feel it in your chest but I felt it all through me all around me everywhere!
    when I was in my twenties I was working one night and I asked Jesus if I could feel his love again and he gave me the gift of that powerful Love again! It shot through me so quickly my knees bent as if I was going to go down on my knees but it was gone so quickly that I only had slightly bent my knees..
    That’s not all thoughbecause in June of this year I had my grandson here.. I told him about how I had seen Jesus when I was seven and when I was finished he told me there was a voice in his head and he thought it was Jesus.. I said yes sometimes there’s a voice in your head that’ll tell you to do the right thing and that is Jesus! He scooted up next to me and when I asked him later what the voice told him it told him to sit here in front of his grandma.. he told me also that Jesus came around and had pet my cat buster.. suddenly he looked to the side of me where the closet was and I saw his eyes go out of focus and turn from Blue to a tan color for just a second…H froze as well..then boom his eyes were back to normal and he pointed at the closet and with all the excitement of a child who just saw Jesus he yelled Jesus is right there and I looked to see if he was there but I didn’t see him.. then suddenly he froze sitting straight in front of me looking down the hallway to the dining room and his eyes once again unfocused and turned tan and I just stared at his eyes the whole time.he said to me ,(even though he looked like he was in a trance he spoke in a regular normal voice) Jesus is in the dining room and I watched him Frozen for a good minute and then his body went to the left and his eyes turned blue again and I thought blue eyes okay! He said to me grandma.. Jesus was in the dining room and he climbed the steps to heaven.. so later I asked him like what he saw that whole time he was frozen..Jesus was like halfway down the hallway with his hands folded in front of him…then he was in the dining room standing the same way facing my grandson and then he turned around and he climbed the steps to heaven! I asked him what did the steps look like? And he said they were rainbow colored.. I thought that was very interesting since the rainbow is God’s promise to Noah and I had also read a book called heaven is for real I believe and the boy in the book had died and gone to heave…. He said that heaven was full of rainbows so that was a very interesting thing for my grandson to say as well.. it was miraculous and now we share a bond but because I shared the story and he shared the story I think we’re being kept apart.. I only told my two daughters and one of them is kind of in charge of whether or not he comes over here.. I don’t know if they think I’m a bad influence because he saw Jesus too.. I have been telling my story to my children since they were small.. I don’t understand. It makes me sad.. but we had that miracle that we experienced together and will always have that and will always know Jesus is absolutely positively real.. I asked him though also if he felt that overpowering love and he said no the love felt faint to him but it was love nonetheless

  39. Thank you for sharing Aimee, that’s a beautiful story. Hope all goes well with you and your relationship with your grandson and that there’s no weirdness coming out of what happened.

    Sometimes these things are best left unsaid to certain people though, they just don’t understand, and that’s okay, it’s just good to remember and be aware of.

    I’ve felt the love you described too when I met my guardian angel (or a Light being) when I was around 15 years old and was going through some really tough times.

    The Angel came to me and hugged me and filled me with such love that I haven’t felt ever, it was pure Divine love filling my whole being, and I know that that encounter literally saved my life.

    I was in a very bad place and it helped me and strengthened me so that I could overcome the things I was struggling with.

    Thank you again for sharing your story!

  40. Aimee

    You’re welcome… I had to tell my grandson that people will actually think you’re lying about Jesus so you shouldn’t probably tell anybody that you saw him.. as if we would lie about Jesus … I guess some people do …. I’m glad you felt that overpowering love too.. I don’t much hear about people actually feeling what I have felt I’ve only heard of it one other time and now from you thank you for sharing that with me that makes me feel really good that you got to feel that too!

  41. For sure, it’s something I’ll never forget! Pure, Divine, “Godly” love was transferred to me as the entity/Being hugged me, and it saved my life as I was in a very dark place at that time in my life.

    It’s not even describable, but a very very real and direct experience of a love and strength that comes from beyond this world.

  42. Aimee

    You know I’ve been thinking about why Jesus came to my grandson and maybe it was to show me that even though he would be taken from me Jesus would have him character he’s not being raised by the best man in the world and my daughter that also raises him is not the best person in the world either and I was very abused by my mother and only saw my dad on the weekends cuz he always worked when we were home so 5 days out of the week I was abused by this woman and even though that happened I always have Jesus to talk to to try to walk in his steps and never ever be like her.. so Jesus has my grandson and my grandson has Jesus if he doesn’t have me for a while.. that’s how I’m going to have to look at it

  43. I’m so sorry to hear that Aimee, and I don’t know what happened or know any of the details etc. when it comes to your family situation but I hope you all can find a way to be in each others lives if that’s what you want.

    I have a distant relative who is super-religious (Christian) and we had the opportunity to get to know each other during a 3 month period (this was many years ago) where we happened to live in the same neighborhood, so we started hanging out and getting to know each other.

    She’s a wonderful person, but very religious too, and she really wanted me to be ‘saved’ too but since I have no interest in religion (and I have a different view on Jesus) we had a bit of a turbulent start on our relationship.

    But then we just simply decided that we were not going to talk about Jesus or any of that, and that helped our relationship, we had a great time together and we could both respect each other even if we were different and thought differently.

    Maybe you too can find a similar agreement in your family, and maybe you can see their point of view too.

    We’re all just different, that’s all, and it’s always good to communicate these things, talk about it together and that way you might be able to find a solution and way (and set up some rules and boundaries) that would work for you all.

    Another thing that would be helpful too is forgiveness work – Have you done any of that? On your past trauma etc, or even the current situation with your family that you’re experiencing right now?

    It’s very powerful, so if you haven’t yet, then I invite you to look into some of my articles about it here:

    Hope all goes well with everything.
