My First Cup Of Coffee In Weeks [this is what happened]

Today I had my first cup of coffee in three weeks and while it tasted good I did not like the effect of it and actually now that I’m writing this I’m looking forward to have the caffeine out of my system.

Since three weeks back I’ve changed and experimented with my diet (no dairy, no meat, no sugar) and also started to exercise six days a week.

In the beginning of those three weeks I went through the expected withdrawal symptoms but those are over and done with now and I’m loving my new, healthier way of living.

But today I thought I’d have a cup of coffee, .. just one to see how it was, and I can tell you that yes, it was yummy, but it’s also definitely a drug and a poison for the body and not something I wish to drink everyday.

I just don’t like what it does to me and the body.

I know how easy it is to fall back since I have done it a few times before with coffee but this time something has changed fundamentally, I don’t see myself going back to everyday drinking at this point.

As I mentioned before I’m drinking a lot of water right now to get rid of the caffeine in my body because it doesn’t feel good at all.

This is something you can only feel and know once you have been cleansed out of it just to mention it to those who say that they feel alright with drinking coffee and that nothing weird is going on in their bodies, because it is a drug and the more used you are to it the less aware you are of its effect on you.

You just know it gives you energy, but if you’re off it for a month and then drink it again you will know exactly what I mean.

In my youth up to my late thirties I used to drink massive amounts of coffee everyday and then some years ago when I went to the USA I stopped drinking it for a while (it just happened naturally, I lost the taste for it) but then when I went to Hawaii later on I couldn’t resist the freshly brewed Hawaiian coffee and on it again I was 🙂

The past few years I have only had a couple of cups every morning and so I haven’t been a heavy coffee drinker lately but still, it was part of my morning ritual and something I looked forward to every morning.

And Then I Did A Juice Fasting..

A year and a half ago or so I did a juice fasting and I loved it (and highly recommend it!).

It started out as a 3-day long experiment and it was such a great experience that I continued for 8 days in a row and would have loved to go for a whole month if it hadn’t been so expensive.

And in that process I obviously ditched coffee (as you only drink pure juice from fruits and vegetables and nothing else) but then I started to drink it again shortly after the 8 days were over.

What I noticed back then was what I notice now as well, that the energy that coffee gives you is an ‘erratic’ kind of energy.

It feels “nervous” and I remember I was standing in front of the mirror practicing a class that I had planned on teaching and I noticed that when I have had coffee my performance was not flowing as harmoniously as it was when I was not on coffee.

I Prefer Clean, Natural Energy

It was more energetic but it was very clear that my brain functioned in a different way; in a nervous way, with a jittery type of energy, and I also noticed that my memory declined in the way that I had to look to my notes more often.

When I practiced my class without any coffee in my body there was a more natural flow to it and I didn’t have to look at my notes as much.

It was many times better and felt more enjoyable to do it without coffee in my system.

I drank coffee for maybe a week or two after the fasting before I decided that it’s not what I want after all so I stopped drinking it again.

But this time (since my body was so clean from the juice fasting) I got really bad headaches (withdrawal symptoms) and because of this I decided to do one more 3-day juice fasting just to get rid of the toxins faster. (A three day fast helps reboot your system).

So I did that and all was well again and I felt great without coffee but then later on I started to drink it again..

And here I am today and this time it’s even more clear to me that I don’t want that stuff in my body.

I don’t like what it does to me and I prefer the natural, harmonious energy instead, so that one cup of coffee I had this morning was enough for me to be able to really feel the difference so I won’t touch coffee again for a very long time.

I’m sure I will have a cup now and then (very rarely though) but absolutely not everyday.

The same with alcohol, I kind of see coffee in the same way now, that just like with alcohol coffee is not an everyday thing but something I can enjoy occasionally.

And I won’t drink decaf either, I’ve read that it’s even worse for you than regular coffee and honestly, this morning when I drank that one cup of (regular) coffee it tasted good but also it didn’t taste as good as it used to.

I just didn’t feel the specialness about it anymore as I did before so it’s not something I will miss.

I haven’t missed it at all during the 3 weeks I was without and I won’t miss it from now on either; I’m actually happy that I don’t drink it anymore, it just feels so much better without.

And I have my opinions and thoughts about why it’s a socially accepted drug worldwide and why it is one of the world most popular drinks but I will save those for later in case someone wishes to discuss below in comments! 🙂

Let me know your thoughts and experiences with having been with and without coffee and what it did to you!

Goodbye coffee pot, I won’t be seeing you again anytime soon.

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.

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

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

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.

I needed help in getting my life back

From the first sentence you spoke directly related to what I was going through, I felt so uplifted and light. It still blows me away when I think about it now! Never once did I feel judged, or uncomfortable in any way. 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. I can’t stress enough what a gift it is to be able to work with somebody like Maria. Talk about amazing grace!

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

Maria helped me recreate my life

Maria is amazing. She is a gift to this world with an incredible intuitive ability. She has helped me to refocus my energy and recreate my life.

I had a complete turnaround to my situation

The distance healing was amazing. 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

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

Something happened within me that I cannot explain

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 certainly did not expect this

I certainly did not expect this, l have had periods of such intense joy and bliss, Love with an underlying peace that’s been consistent. l don’t understand it intellectually but my heart see’s it clearly. It’s been wonderful, I feel a true sense of connection and being rooted with in and there is just an openness and trust, and a sense of wonder and amazement. I am truly grateful, Thank you. Sincerely.

Mark Neely, Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA

Connecting with you is magical

Maria THANK YOU. Sometimes just by connecting with you even briefly gives me instant clarity, it’s really magical, thank you so much. I trust your guidance so much, I’m just so grateful!

My life has radically changed for the better

I finally know my worth. I feel so different now, I feel lighter, happier and more self confident and it’s easy to let go of people and situations that don’t serve me. I treasure the time I spend talking with Maria and look forward to my sessions with her. There has been big changes in my life, synchronicities showing up like magic and I’m constantly blown away at the business and opportunities that I’m attracting. My life has radically changed for the better after I met Maria.

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. 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 everything 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

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

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 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.

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 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

Thank you, Maria!

I couldn’t be more grateful to have Maria in my life. Her guidance and energy is profound!

– Robert, CA, 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.

Andrew B, San Diego, CA, USA

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

I experienced a 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.

Can’t recommend her enough!

Working with Maria was one of the best investments I ever made in myself. I’ve seen immediate shifts in my energy as well as learned to work with my own energy and mind. It has been one of the single most transformational experiences of my life. Can’t recommend her enough!

– Chris, USA

 I am so glad that I reached out to you

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!


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.

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 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.

    I completely agree Maria. Coffee has a more powerful effect on our mind than most people realise, and it’s hard to fully appreciate that until you’ve cut it out. After cutting it out, I found that when I had it I was immediately pulled into my egoic mind and away from my true self. Kind of crazy the way mind and body are connected like that. Happily I’ve found that drinking matcha doesn’t do this to me at all, even though it still energises me to the same degree!

  2. Hi Jasmine,

    Good to hear from you, thanks for commenting!

    This is a very old post and the process of quitting coffee for me personally had a lot to do with going through some of the more challenging parts of peri-menopause and my body adjusting to the hormonal changes that were happening.

    Too much to mention here, but as I’ve now come over the worst parts of the process, I can again enjoy coffee, I just don’t drink it as much anymore as I used to.

    I have a matcha or green tea every now and then, but I like coffee better. 😊
