Stop all doing and just BE.

You don’t have to invest in thinking, you don’t have to figure things out, nor do you have to frenetically try to fix things.

For now, just be.

You don’t have to believe your thoughts.

You don’t have to understand them, analyze them, or accomplish anything.

We are not our thoughts.

You don’t have to train yourself into believing you are lovable.

There’s an assumption in the affirmation “I am love” that you aren’t already and that you have to train (program) yourself into believing that.

As if you’re not enough, that you need to be fixed, that you’re inadequate.

We already are love.

We already are what we seek, cliche as it may sound, it is true.

Constant affirmations reinforces and strengthens the false self.

It’s even in the word; “self-image”, the image we have of ourselves.

That’s not who we are.

Thoughts and thinking is limited, and you will never find yourself by using the mind.

Yes, you can build and create a better functioning ego… a nicer ego, or a more powerful ego.

Sure, you can do that. But that’s still not who you really are.

Thoughts are old.

They are based on past experiences and conditioning, and by building up a better person so to speak, you are on a deeper level only reinforcing the belief that you are still not enough.

You are enough.

When we realize that, when identification shifts to Spirit, it can use the mind and not the other way around where the mind is running your life and you’re doing what you can to cope with it by all kinds of means to try to perfect it, try to control it, make it more this and that thinking you will feel better by doing that, thinking that someday your attempts will lead to some kind of fulfillment.

You actually don’t need to think.

Thinking can happen through you – that’s what inspiration, insights and great revelations come from; from that deep place within you that is beyond mind.

That deeper place of our true nature, that which can’t be created or manufactured.

– Because it already is and has nothing to do with the mind.

Inspiration, great ideas, the aha-moments of great revelations, wisdom, .. they all come to us and through us.

They are not by us.  

When you remove the thoughts of who you think you are, whatever that may be, ask yourself; what remains?

What is beyond the words that describe this “me”?

If they are no more, what is left?

Stop the mental process by asking with curiosity;

“If this is not who I am, if this is not true, then what is?”

We can’t know by thinking about it, no matter how pure our intentions are, it’s still about having beliefs that diminishes the expression of our true being.

We think we need to strive to be different, better, more fabulous.

That we need to create an attractive persona so that others like us, so that other accepts us, look up to us, thinks we are great.

But we can drop the mask and see what’s behind it.

Everything you think you are, you’re really not.

I invite you to stop all doing, stop all affirming, stop all trying to meditate the right way, stop all trying to figure out how to be, who to be, and simply BE.

If the mind comes in with opinions, if it rejects the stillness that comes from just being, let it.

That’s what minds do. They object and evaluate, they push away, they want something else, and so on.

Let it do it’s thing; no need to get drawn into any mind-made drama 🙂

You don’t have to believe your thoughts, and you don’t have to fight them nor give them any emotional fuel either.

You can just let everything be, everything.

Be still and know that I am God”

Remember the wisdom of that message. Remember it with your heart.

Be still.

Enjoy the stillness of You.

“… When we realize Truth, there is no longer anything to hold on to, and the last thing that is surrendered is the self, the false self. (The person you imagine yourself to be).

“… Letting go of the self doesn’t mean letting go of only the so called limiting beliefs we have of ourselves, but actually the whole shebang; the little self, the ego, who is the person we imagine ourselves to be.

It’s wonderfully ruthless in its ways. Everything that is not Truth will be removed, that you can count on….” :

“… In reality, when we let go and surrender to Life (which oftentimes happen when we have suffered enough and are ready to trust the intelligence of life itself, or “God” and we let It take over)  that’s when life (or spirit) can do it’s thing through and as us without interference from our false little self. There’s peace present, inspiration (which can’t be “created” by the mind/ego), there’s freshness, openness, pure intelligence; the mind gets used by that intelligence, and no longer are we used by the mind…” :

“… Without the idea of being someone. Who are you, really?

“… The ego is a collection of all the thoughts, beliefs and ideas we have of ourselves that we have learned throughout our life, all the things we have been told we are and all the things we have built up as in creating a “self” (which can be a so called “positive” self as well); yet in truth we are beyond mind. So, the ego can also be the “nice” and positive images and ideas we have of ourselves, nevertheless, they are not who we really are at all, but to see who we are, we have took very closely to what we are not…” :

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!

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.

– A.

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!

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’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

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

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 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.

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

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!
