Follow the path of your heart

If it doesn’t align with you – reject it

Say no to what doesn’t align with you.

If you feel resistance and dread towards doing something, don’t force yourself to do it.

The resistance is about you not being true to yourself and that you’re doing or about to do something that is not in alignment with you or true about you.

Our purpose in life is to be ourselves, as fully as we can, and to follow our highest joy, or excitement, and to reject the rest.

Not because the other things are wrong or bad, but simply because they are not you, or for you.

Instead of forcing yourself to like something, don’t even think about it, leave that part to others to whom it resonates, let them enjoy it.

We’re all part of a whole and we all play our own individual parts in the tapestry of Life and our job is to just focus on what’s in alignment for us.

Just do what you are good at or that you actually want to develop and evolve in and leave the rest, even if there are others telling you that you have to do it in a certain way or that their way is the right way to do it.

Your only obligation is towards yourself, to be true to yourself.

Support only the expansion of who you really are and develop the natural interests, skills and talents you already have within you instead or trying to mold yourself into something you’re not.

Hone in on the essence of who you really are are and polish your unique gifts, make them more visible and grow in those areas instead.

Support who you really are by doing the things that you really want to do.

You can just focus on doing what you’re best at and where your true passion is and develop those things.

This is true with everything in life, whatever your path is.

Whatever it is that your unique thing or things are, do those things, focus on what you’re good at and what catches your interest and leave the rest – that way you’ll express the truest you there is to this world.

That’s where the most fun is for you too;

When let your soul come through in the ways that it’s meant to and not in the ways that maybe others or the world wants it to come through or how you ‘think’ it should look like.

Ask yourself:

“What’s truly calling me?” and “what would excite me the most?”, and then do what you would prefer and what’s speaks to you the most.

Don’t force yourself to like something. Life is too short for that kind of thing.

Align with the energies that are in alignment with your passions and interests instead and move from a place inside you where you’re in sync and harmony with your own unique preferences.

Of course, this doesn’t exclude the importance of being curious and trying new things in life. It’s more about sensing when something feels heavy and out of resonance with you versus ego resistance that you have to push through.

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 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

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 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

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.

– Carolyn W. Asheville, NC, 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 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.

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!

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 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!

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.

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

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

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.

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.

C. Málaga, Spain

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.

— Robin, New York, 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 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

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

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.

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

 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!


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

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

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

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.

  1. Carolyn

    Hi Maria,
    Thank you this article is helpful! A word that keeps up lately is – simple. And how simple it really can be to follow the things that light me up. This prompted me to take a look how I’ve allowed beliefs or things I’ve been told to influence my path. I’m learning it’s best to just disregard statements that aren’t true for me. I’m also learning how to see through past conditioning to get a sense for when something doesn’t jive vs things that would be good for me to push though. It seems much of the conditioning is – you must struggle and do “x” before proceeding to “y”. One of the best things you’ve taught me is that life doesn’t have to be a struggle. It can be simple.
    Thank you for your words and another insightful article!

  2. Yes, struggle is what we’ve learned but it’s not in alignment with who we really are.

    It’s weird to most people when things are easy or when things comes easily and effortlessly.

    There’s a lot of “do this, don’t do this, you should do it like this” – type of advice out there that only makes people being at war with themselves.

    We’re so bombarded with information and everybody has their own opinions and ways to do everything nowadays (which is great!), but when we’re connected to ourselves we clearly see that it doesn’t matter what other people think or say.

    More and more people are beginning to turn away from all that and are instead turning within to ask themselves what works for them or what they want.

    All the ‘shoulds’ and should nots’ are in the subconscious mind so when you begin to do inner work on your beliefs, that’s when you realize how programmed we are as human beings.

    Alignment is when you’re okay with who you are, when you don’t inflict guilt or shame on yourself thinking that you have to do things a certain “right” way (or not do certain things for that matter), “otherwise it won’t work”.

    The reality is that there’s no argument for one way that you can’t hear in an argument for the other way!

    Everybody has their own opinions and ways things has worked for them, but it doesn’t mean that they will work for you.

    It’s just their truth and only YOUR way (your truth) will work for you, and is actually guaranteed to work for you.

    You don’t have to do things that you feel are forceful, even if others say it’s what you should do.

    If you feel “urgh, I don’t want to do this”, then don’t do it.

    Feelings like that tells you that you’re doing something for somebody else, that you’re trying to please them or that you’re doing something out of obligation.

    Of course, as I always also point out; it’s really important to have self-awareness so you know if it’s your ego talking or actually what your heart is telling you to do or not do.

    When it’s your ego saying “urgh,..” and you have self-awareness enough to see that, you’re able to ignore it and let it have its fits while you go ahead and do the things anyway. 😊

    And when you start listening more and more to yourself you begin moving more and more in harmony with Life, and being in that flow you’ll find that things can be enjoyable, fun, and unfold with much greater ease and with much higher levels of creativity and inspiration as well.

    Dear Maria, Thank you for this masterful article. The Test of finality before doing everything that we do is FEELING. “If you are doing anything without peace then you can never have peace after that thing is done by you”- this is the message of Colossians3:17. Feeling is everything because it is our navigational compass through life. Thank you so much for your engaging article. I love you and remain bless

  4. Glad to hear it resonated with you owanifo. 😊 Although I don’t agree entirely with you.

    Of course you can find peace, it doesn’t make any difference what you’ve done, you can always forgive yourself and move on with your life.

    You just have to let go of the limiting belief that tells you that you can never have peace again.

    No need to be riddled with guilt and shame or be beating yourself up forever for something that belongs to the past.

    Better to be kind to yourself and move on with your life as a more evolved human being, that’s one of the purposes of making ‘mistakes’ in life.

    Peace is always available to us, at all times, and to all of us.
