Reviewing The Past Decade (4 questions to ask yourself)

As you know from what I have shared in previous posts, I’m transitioning to the second part of my life, and it’s not even a new chapter but a whole new book! 😀

Lots of things are going on and I have much more to share with you but that comes later when I feel ready.

Today I want to share some really great questions that you can ask yourself when you’re looking back at your life, say maybe even for the past ten years; how things has unfolded in your life, things that has happened, both difficult things and wonderful things.

We all have some pivotal points in our lives that were very important to us, that were life-changing or somehow very significant for us, and one of my big happenings in life was obviously when I got myself into rehab and became free from my drug addiction.

I can’t believe it’s almost a decade and a half ago!

I think I was 29 years old, not sure about the year at the moment but I remember the date; it was January 25th and always, always on that date I have a little celebration within myself – I am so grateful to be alive.

Even now when I write this I get all emotional.

I’m so grateful because I know that I would have died if I had continued on that path, I know it 100%.

I believe we can all think back and at least find a handful (more or less) of those pivotal moments in our life that changed everything.

It can be all kinds of things; maybe one of yours are that you gave birth to a child, or that you moved to another country, or that you got married (or divorced) or maybe you lost everything and then a new life emerged from the ashes of your past life.

We all have them don’t we, we can all look back and find those big moments or happenings that changed everything.

And we can all live many different lives in this life.

I know I have. I have done a lot, experimented a lot, ‘been’ a lot, and I have experienced a lot in my life so far.

Today I was inspired to share with you a few questions that you can ask yourself if you’re in the mood or reviewing – not your whole life – but the past ten years.

The past decade. Think back, how old were you ten years ago? Where were you?

Think back, try to get a somewhat clear picture of the timeline from then to here and now.

Now ask these two questions one at a time:

“What was my greatest growth experience during the past decade of my life?”

“What was my greatest growth lesson during those years?”

For me personally one of the things that has helped me grow a lot the past ten years is the creation of my website.

I’m telling you, there have been times when I have wanted to pull my hair out because it can be technically challenging to say the least, but I feel very proud of the fact that I have built this site all by myself, it’s all me 🙂

I have learned a lot, not only about how to create a website, but of course my writing skills has improved over the years too, my English is better as well and many other positive things has come out of me actually creating my own website.

That’s just one thing on my list to give you an idea of what you can look for in your own life.

Other things in my personal life when it comes to growth experiences is that I have traveled a lot in the past ten years of my life and that has of course given me many opportunities to grow.

The second question “what was my greatest lesson, looking back on the past decade?”;

What was yours?

You can have many but see if you can find a common thread here when you look at all the different.. ehm, .. ‘learning opportunities’ that life has presented to you the past ten years.

And now ask yourself:

“If I could only keep one change from the past ten years, only one, and every other lesson/change/transformation had to be forgotten, which change would I keep?”

I know what mine is, and realizing what it was when I asked myself this question was huge, really huge.

This can be a change that was very difficult for you to make or live through if the change was forced upon you but that you now, as you’re looking back, would not change in a million years.

What was it for you?

Don’t skip this question – you might be surprised what it reveals to you when you’re really looking into it.

Like “wow”-huge 🙂

Next I want to ask you, or ask you to ask yourself: 

What were your 3-5 happiest days in the past decade?

One of mine was when I got my own place when I moved to Spain, my God what a relief that was!

A lot of my most happy times involves having (getting) a place of my own or about moving.

I’ve moved to Spain once before, in 2007-2008 sometime, to Costa Blanca and that was a big step for me too.

And once I even lived in a tiny little caravan in Norway (in the middle of the winter) that had a leaking roof but I was soooo happy to have it, because it was mine, my own place.

What were your happiest days of the past decade? (Feel free to share below in comments!:)

Here are the questions again:

“What was my greatest growth experience during the past decade of my life?”

“What was my greatest growth lesson during those years?”

“If I could only keep one change from the past ten years, which change would I keep?”

“What were your 3-5 happiest days in the past decade?”

Transformational coaching

Book a private one-on-one with me.

Any kind of suffering such as stress, fear, self-doubt and struggle comes from being out of alignment with ourselves and the flow of Life. Freedom, inner calm and confidence comes from awakening to who we really are and integrating our soul and humanness into a state of wholeness and alignment with the flow of Life.

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!

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.

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.

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!
