What If I’m Going Crazy? (Ask Maria)

“How do you know that what you have experienced throughout your process is truly real? How do you know you are not totally fucked up and crazy and then one day you die and then there is nothing and all seems to have been useless?

I know that I feel most of the time much better now than before all this happened (so I surely do not want to go back), but I was just wondering: how do I know it is not just total bullocks?

What if the ‘normal’ world is indeed just how people supposed to life and the fact that I just really do not want to live like that anymore just means I am slowly going bananas”.

My Reply:

Since you are here on this site asking this question I’m pretty sure you’re not going crazy or insane 🙂

But there are some similarities between a spiritual awakening process and mental disorders and imbalances etc, definitely.

They can look the same, or similar, to people who are not familiar with spiritual processes.

I actually believe that there are many, many people who have been misdiagnosed by their doctors of having a mental illness (or depression) when actually the person is going through a spiritual awakening process.

In various phases most of us will go through a fire that makes us feel like we’re literally loosing it and sometimes that can be scary, and sometimes it throws us into a deep deep abyss of fear, panic and depression.

And sometimes people get all kinds of diagnosis; psychosis, bipolar, chemical imbalances in the brain (Prozac nation!) and sometimes even schizophrenia.

Family and friends begin to think you’re really loosing it when your world begin to crumble because it involves the crumbling of the ‘you’ that you used to be.

So my question back to you is “do you really think you’re going crazy?”

I have a feeling your answer to that is No.

This is something else.

Fore example;

You can feel the difference between being depressed and it being something else (like a spiritual process of some kind) if you have been depressed at some point in your life and the sad fact is that most of us has.

So by going within to check with ourselves we can usually tell ourselves that ‘no, this is not a normal depression/craziness, this is something different’.

The thing is that psychiatrists are not trained to understand what any of this spiritual stuff is about so if you don’t have some kind of awareness about what is going on in reality, you might end up hospitalized or on meds for a very long time, only to prolong the awakening process and even hinder it.

When we’re in the process of awakening, our whole identity structure begins to unravel, the whole sense of who we are starts to break down and of course there’s confusion in this, there’s fear, depression and so on.

Your life is being rewired to its original ‘state’ (which is the stateless state) and to someone who’s not aware (and those around a person who witness this happening), if you/they don’t know what the hell is going on its easy to assume that the person is going crazy or insane.

That’s how this world is created (and sustained);

We believe those things more than we believe in our own inner knowing, the intuitive sense that ‘this is not a mental illness, this is something else, something significant and important’, so we just take the pills we are given and .. well, look at the world today. Enough said.

There’s confusion, doubt, insecurity; “What if they are right and I am wrong? What if all this spiritual stuff is just nonsense, bullocks, pure BS?”

“What if I’m imagining all this?”

Okay, so let’s say you are.

This is all your imagination. There’s no such thing as awakening, you’re making it all up.

What will you do about it then?

What would you do with the information?

“Okay, so I’m really loosing it”.

Now what?

Would you not continue on this path regardless..? Or where would you rather go, in what direction?

Doubt dies immediately when you allow yourself to be/go insane 🙂

Because correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t the doubt of this process vanish in the acceptance of the fear that is being projected towards you from your own ego?

Facing your doubts and challenging and confronting your ego disarms it immediately because fear and doubt are its tools; the ego’s job is to keep you as a domesticated and repressed little self but confronting it helps you break free out of its prison.

“Okay, so I’m going insane – woo hoo! Let’s go even more crazy, shall we? Yeah, let’s see how that is! I’m crahyzeah! Ooh, yeah!” 😀

Now feel how the doubt melts away.

Wouldn’t you rather be ‘crazy’ than in the bondage of the ego?

Most people perceive the world according to a manufactured and conditioned ego-self and that ego-self can’t comprehend or understand enlightenment , so on one hand it wants it but then when things starts to happen and where you feel like you’re loosing your mind, then it doesn’t want it anymore.

When the false begin to fall away, or being removed with force and Truth cuts away the unreal with its fiery machete, that’s when resistance kicks in and with it comes all kinds of explanations and reasoning of ‘this’ being wrong.

But this is also when the realization sometimes hits us that this is beyond mind, beyond the known, beyond the imaginations of bliss and eternal cosmic oneness; we realize that ‘this’ is the real and not wrong at all. 

The Unraveling Begins

Going into this process and not avoiding it allows us to finally see beyond our conditioned self, how it’s created and how it operates in our lives and in the consciousness of the world at large.

Truth has us now and won’t let go (thank God for that!).

This is something completely beyond mind, the ego can never ‘get it’ because it’s unknowable, it’s the unknown, the ungraspable; the ego mind can never know any of this.

What happens is that we come to see Reality from the viewpoint of who we really are.

We are no longer blind, we see through beliefs, concepts, culture, society, religion/spiritual ideas, all of it.

You are returning back to yourself; Truth.

And the process can be crazy, exhilarating, wonderful, pit-dark and painful.

This can be weird for people around you (when they see you change and also suffer) and if you’re not aware of what’s happening in your life you might try to get back to “normal” with help of meds etc, thinking you’re going crazy, when in fact you’re going sane, not insane.

If you’re not aware you will conform to what other people think, what doctors and concerned family members think, and if you do then you just postpone (or hinder) your awakening process from really taking off and you’re likely to be dulled down and thus not open to ask anymore deep questions about life and existence.

Because all your time and energy now will go to trying to become “normal” again.

You will cease to discover new things about yourself and your curiosity will die in regards to ‘this’.

You succumb to the status quo of what others say ‘this’ is so you stop growing (for the moment).

But if you on the other hand go ahead with ‘this’, if you trust it, if you follow its promptings and your inner inclinations, you’re bound to wake up from the dream sooner or later.

You start to remember who you are, and with that remembrance your world begins to be perceived as coming together, not falling apart, and even if you’re the only one seeing it you will follow through and keep going, even through moments of darkness and feelings of insanity.

Because you will know deep within yourself that this is not wrong, this is right, and even if it sometimes hurts and is painful you don’t want to dull it down or hinder its way through you and your life. 

Most people around us can’t relate to this, they can’t understand this, so they say you’re loosing it, that you’re weird and difficult.

And sometimes we might even think that they are right.

Sometimes we feel we’re loosing it, or that we’re weird because we can’t relate to the world in the same way anymore, we feel strange and maybe even that we’re slowly going crazy.

But we’re alright, there’s nothing wrong with us, and again; if we just said out loud;

“Maybe I am going crazy, maybe this is all a farce, or a sick mind-game. Maybe I’m imagining it all, maybe I’m the crazy one after all”.

What would happen ? Would anything change?

I believe not.

I believe you would still prefer to risk going bananas before going back to the world as you once knew it.

Am I right? 🙂

So keep going, be the crazy one and see what happens, see where it takes you!

Keep ’em coming, I LOVE hearing from you!: Ask Maria

 

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

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!

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

Thank you, Maria!

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

– Robert, CA, USA

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

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’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

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 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 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!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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 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.

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 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!

J, 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
