Surrender to the Universe and you have nothing to fear

Surrendering takes you back into the flow of Life

Surrendering is the key to inner peace and progress.

What it means to surrender:

You let go of the ego’s need to control, realizing that there’s another way to move forward that the limited self has not been able to see yet.

There’s an all-knowing part of you that has the whole picture, knows the way to your desires (which has been given to you by the Divine), and most importantly; it shows the way.

It knows all the answers and solutions you seek and the right way forward.

You know when you’re out of flow when you’ve began struggling, pushing, striving and becoming frustrated and feeling like a victim of your circumstances.

That’s when you have given over the control to the ego.

To give it back to the Divine you need to surrender that control as well as your beliefs about how you ‘think’ things should unfold and happen (and how fast).

I can promise you this; once you let go, that’s when things start to happen fast, but not until then. So why not live this way? It’s so much more enjoyable to live in the flow of Life than to be struggling against it!

If you’re obsessing over something, if you’re fixated or attached to a specific outcome and you find yourself being needy and clingy, then see this post as a message from the Divine that you need to let go and let It take over, because that’s where your freedom and joy is and that’s always what it wants for you.

What you seek and want will come to you when you let go of your clinginess to it and immediately as you do this you will feel relief and become more relaxed and feel like you can finally breathe again.

You will instantly fall back into the flow where you feel supported, at peace and connected to the Divine within you.

Trust that if what you want is meant to happen it will happen, and if not then something greater and better will happen, something that will bring you even greater joy than what you thought your own plans could give you.

When you let go you let go into the flow of Life and that’s when things can unfold naturally and things just suddenly click into place by themselves without you having to put them into place, or “make them happen”.

Instead you let them happen, you let things come to you.

Surrendering can be confusing for those who don’t understand the dynamics of the co-creative process and that’s where the suffering comes from.

It is important to get clear on what you want and about the direction of your life (where you want to go) and taking action and doing things that moves you in that direction (to “make it happen”), so it can be challenging for some people to fit the two together, the action-part and the surrendering-part.

Learning to trust is a huge part of this process and when you start trusting yourself and your inner guidance you also have greater love and compassion for yourself.

To not trust yourself causes self-doubt and you think you’re doing something wrong because things are not happening the way you want them to happen and then you’re blaming yourself and so on and so on.

This self-doubt keeps you from allowing the blessings that are assigned to you to come to you because you’re constantly thinking that it’s all up to you, that you have to do it all alone (and in the perfect way and by always having to be perfect so you can be ‘deserving’).

You are not doing anything wrong (and you already are deserving!), you’re just slightly off path and out of alignment and sometimes all that is needed is a small little shift, a millimeter shift, and you’re back in the flow again, feeling connected and guided and loved and all that good stuff! 😊

Honor your feelings and ask for guidance and you will receive it.

It’s okay to feel whatever you’re feeling, just don’t wallow in discouragement, anger, frustration, resentment, impatience and disappointment etc.

Instead surrender and go within and get real quiet and just ‘be’ for a while and ask to be taken back to Truth, back to peace.

When you open up to the flow, you open up to Life itself to flow freely and unhindered and this brings not only peace to you but also all the things you’ve been seeking and wanting.

Getting in alignment can literally transform your life almost instantaneously.

And you will get validations and confirmations from the Universe right away too, in the form of synchronicities and other signs.

A lot of things can flow to you when you surrender to the reality that is actually for you, instead of trying to make the reality your ego thinks is for you happen.

Surrender everything now after you’ve read this and watch how Life can do so much more for you than what you can do for yourself when you finally get yourself out of the way.

When you surrender to the flow you’re saying Yes to Life, and that’s when life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.

Spiritual surrender is not defeat, it’s victory, it sets you free:

One last thing;

A lot of people ask me how to surrender, “what do I do? I mean, how do I do it?” they ask, so if you don’t want to read all the articles I’ve written throughout the years about surrendering, then here’s the short answer:

Surrendering is not about ‘doing’, but about stopping what you’re doing.

Just STOP.

Don’t “do” anything.

Breathe, open your hands and heart and release everything,

and then go for a walk or something.

It’s that simple, yet it’s the hardest thing for most people to do because we have been conditioned to believe that life is a competition and a struggle for survival so we’ve become so disconnected from our inner guidance.

Surrender takes you right into the arms of the Divine, and when there, you’re at peace and at home with yourself again where you belong.

So just STOP everything you’re doing and simply say something like this:

“I give everything over to you, I’m all yours and my life (and struggles/challenges etc.) are completely in your hands now. You know what to do with it (and I don’t) so you handle it. Thank you for showing me that this is the answer that I have been looking for. “

That’s all you have to do.

It’s the intention behind it that matters, not “how” you do it.

Just surrender, and watch your life rearrange itself without any help from you perfectly into harmony according to the energy of your true life’s flow.

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.

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.

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!

    My Dear Maria, Thank you so much for this article and it resonates with me. I entirely agree with you on the inner transformational effects of spiritual surrendering. My thoughts on spiritual surrender is that spiritual surrender is analogous to “ceasing to paddle your boat so that you can pay attention to the flowing pattern of the river because understanding the flowing pattern of the river enables you to paddle your boat wisely”. Spiritual surrender is not laziness rather it paying attention to how you are feeling in the present moment for the purpose of taking the necessary inspired actions. The greatest benefit of spiritual surrender is that it gives us clarity on how we can take the inspired responsible actions when necessary. Spiritual surrender is concurring to the actions already taken by the Universe and spiritual surrend also requires us to take our own inspired actions because taking actions is an integral part of life. Take good care of yourself with your favorite pretzels. I love you always.

    I love your articles Maria. Surely you have, and do walk this path with courage
    everything you say resonates with my own personal experience. To surrender can feel like dying, the death of our ego, or our ‘children’ within, their ways, defences etc, though I would prefer to use words like embracing/transforming with truth and love. And yes, how can we let go without trust! But God is good! If we just ask (we often don’t ask enough) He/She is well able to cause us to trust, to surrender our surrender, to accept our non-acceptence, to yield, even if we do come kicking and screaming sometimes. And then we see, and then the rest, blessed rest!
