Are you a spiritual seeker or a founder?

How can I be “spiritual” yet be put off by people who seem “similar” to me?

“Why do spiritual people annoy me?”

Hi Maria!! 🙂

I recently got back into the dating game, and I have been attracting people who are “spiritual” (even though there was no mention of that on their dating profile, so it was not intentional, not consciously anyway).

They seem to be into similar things to me – mindfulness podcasts, meditation, self growth, watching videos of gurus (although that I don’t do anymore but I used to), and even seeing number syncronicities which, when it all started for me 6 years ago no one knew what the hell I was talking about lol (11:11 and all that).

It has been a very interesting experience, because so far up until very recently, I haven’t met ANYONE who was into ANY of that stuff, and now it seems to be almost like a trend?

I used to think it would be awesome to meet someone who finally “understands” me, whom I can talk to about these things but the opposite happened – I felt EXTREMELY put off by the whole thing and had ZERO interest to talk about all that stuff! It felt very heavy and just wrong.

Some would talk about consciousness and it almost felt like they were trying to teach me lol… it was very annoying, and I sensed an arrogance to it too.

Most of the stuff they were saying were things I knew already, so it’s not like they were talking nonsense, but it still felt wrong for some reason…

And then I had 1 date with someone who was just completely normal and not into any of that stuff, he just liked doing his guy things lol, work out, walk his dog, into surfing etc and that was so much more appealing to me, almost like a breath of fresh air lol.

So! My question is –

How can I be “spiritual” yet be put off by people who seem “similar” to me?

To be honest, it almost feels like I am shifting away from the whole spiritual “concept” entirely.

I still connect with Life, I get my insights or “downloads” so of course I know there is more to what we see, and I’ve been on this journey for so many years now too, but it’s almost like it’s all falling away and I feel this peace and relief almost?

I know this is part of the “process” because everything is part of the process 🙂 but this is a new one for me! So was curious what your thoughts were 🙂

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.

Beyond grateful for the transformational journey we shared

Maria, I am beyond grateful for the transformational journey we shared. it was nothing less than a miracle that has allowed me come into who I really am. I wake up every morning with a big smile on my face, feeling immense gratitude for just being alive, I can’t explain it, I´m just enjoying this fully. Your guidance has so profoundly changed my life, and I cannot thank you enough.

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.

The feeling of peace and freedom is priceless

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.

Something happened within me that I cannot explain

During and 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.

This journey with you has been amazing

Words cannot fully express the profound impact of my session with you – it has been nothing short of magical. You helped me remove the blockages that held me back, helped me recognize my true worth, and providing so much insight that has been truly life-changing!

I had a complete turnaround to my situation

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!

Now I know what is creating my reality

I’m overflowing with gratitude and joy! Life has changed dramatically for me after our time together. I have truly realized on a fundamental level what is creating my reality and it has given me confidence for the first time in my life to finally be ME, I feel liberated to be my authentic self!

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!

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.

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!
