The Personality is a Perfume Consciousness Wears

Is fierceness an egoic trait? I don’t believe so.

All our personality traits – whatever they may be – are simply different expressions that consciousness uses and there’s billions of individual fragrances of the One.

Spirit can express itself fiercely too, it’s actually the one who tries to repress the fierceness that is the egoic mind – not the fierce expression itself. It has just been put into a box it can’t fit into.

In reality we are both that and more, way to big to fit into any kinds of boxes.

Why is there an assumption that Spirit is only kind, sweet and humble all the time?

It can be direct, intense and explosive too. Not in a confrontational way, or aggressive way but in a honest and open way. 

Not in a egoic “honest” way as in throwing your inner garbage on someone just to vent. That’s immature.

(Attack is always from the ego – Spirit has no need to defend itself because it knows it’s all there is: non-duality).

But rather in a way that promotes closeness and intimacy. Sincerity.Vulnerability.

When consciousness expands freely it’s not you and I who grows – it’s just that the individual seeing and sensing broadens and thus sees more of what is in reality – not what our minds make up things to be, but the Truth of Life and existence.

Just to question the assumptions and ideas we have opens up the possibility to see a whole different world that is beyond all the things and concepts we believe to be true but always changes. Truth never changes.

Simple questions like why do we automatically assume that we are the lower self and that there’s some kind of higher self that we in some way or another either wish to connect with, or aspire to live from, or ‘be’?

Why don’t we already live with the realization that there’s no such duality; that we already are the One, that this thing we call “I” is not personal, but simply one expression of many billions.

Because we have been trained since childhood to believe that we are this body with this particular name, profession and all the different roles we play for each other. But we are not those things at all.

When we question from the heart and not the mind – and when we listen with the heart and not the mind – we come to realize the truths of how the mind keeps us in bondage, but only as long as we insist on having our identification in it.

It’s by recognizing the false that we encounter Truth.

We (humanity at large) keep on insisting on putting not only ourselves into boxes, but others as well.

We keep on insisting to holding on to our beliefs and ideas of how we should be and how others should be and behave.

Beyond all ideas, concepts and beliefs there’s Truth – and not before we can embrace ourselves as we are – as consciousness or Life wishes to express itself and we stop denying it – can we become free and liberated to be just that.

The individual, or person that we think we are, is merely an aspect of consciousness and our individual personalities is the perfume it wears.

We don’t demand that flowers should have a different fragrance, or that the sun should shine brighter and be more yellow.

We don’t insist on leafs of the tree to be more colorful or the soil under our feet to be less earthy and dark.

We don’t hear the wind whine fearfully about not knowing where to blow, and we don’t ever see clouds trying to be perfectly formed for our eyes now do we?

Then why do we continue insisting to be or become someone we’re not, or demanding that others should fit into the molds we have of them so that we can feel comfortable around them?

Silly, isn’t it?

I mean; just question yourself – why would you not be enough? Why do you compare yourself with others?

And are you aware of the fact that ‘the others’ do the exact same thing..?

Simply be who you are and that is enough – always.

By the way; have you seen that I have added a translator to my website? You’ll find it at the bottom of the website on the left hand side. When you click on the link that says “select language” you’ll have many different languages to chose from.

Now, this is the Google translator and not very good, at least from what I have seen when I tried out the Swedish translation (it was hilarious:-) but then again; your language may be better translated than the Swedish.

I hope it can be helpful to you if you wish to read my website in your own language.

Transformational coaching

Have breakthroughs and progress on your path:

Any kind of suffering and struggle comes from being out of alignment with who you really are and the flow of Life.

Freedom, inner peace and confidence comes from moving into a perspective beyond your limited self and into a place of alignment.

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.

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 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.

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!
