Fear does not belong to you, it's from the ego

Don’t let fear get to you: Take Charge of Yourself

Overcome fear and master yourself

Sometimes people ask me if they should just ignore whatever it is that causes inner disturbance or turmoil, and I say NO, absolutely not.

Do not let any unfavourable energies linger in your mind and heart, not even for a moment.

The idea or suggestion to “not worry” or “give your problems over to the Divine” does not mean that you should dismiss or ignore the things that stir up fear inside of you, or that you don’t do anything about it yourself.

That’s not “mastering yourself”, that’s running away and trying to hide from something (fear/ego) and thus letting It has power and dominion over you.

If you’re worried or afraid/fearful about something, don’t pretend the worry/fear is not there, don’t ignore it and dismiss it from your mind without first going after it with all you’ve got.

It’s an intruder in your mind – it doesn’t belong there, so ignoring it or dismissing it will only help for the moment, but for a permanent removal of it, you have to go after it and look closely at it.

That’s how you get rid of it. It’s a poison and should not be allowed to take hold of you one bit.

And to just leave it and give it over to a higher power without first working it through within yourself to the best of your ability is to basically allowing things drift while hoping for the best.

No, you absolutely have to deal with it.

Don’t allow yourself to become a slave to fear and don’t let anything overwhelm and stress you out.

And I’m not talking about momentary experiences of fear or concern etc.

All feelings are to be welcomed and natural/normal and should be allowed as they guide us and are way-showers in their own way.

It’s when the feelings and emotions take over the person that it becomes a problem.

You are meant to overcome and rise above any fear you might have and you do that by learning how to master your own emotional and mental states and responses.

The more we shrink from problems or challenges and the more we try to run away from them, the worse and bigger they get.

Then fear and worry becomes your master (=the ego runs your life), but we can only become its slave if we accept it and pretend it’s not there by putting on a happy face, or if we just give it over to the Divine without doing anything ourselves.

That is the same as giving fear dominion and authority in our lives.

What needs to be done is to meet it and destroy it; nip it in the bud as soon as it enters into your mind.

If you don’t, it’s the same as allowing it to grow and fester and eventually take you over, which will only cause increased anxiety, even panic, and lead to other things such as addictions, stress-related health-issues etc.

If we accept fear to live on in our hearts and minds it becomes part of our life and with it comes a lot of unwated things and experiences!

But when fear has been cast out we find that it didn’t have much to come with after all, that it was all bark and no bite. In Reality it really has nothing on you.

So it’s not about refusing to meet or avoiding life’s challenges and going to watch a funny movie instead, pretending everything is fine and hoping that it will all be taken care of (or go away) by itself.

We have to face it, meet it, challenge it and that’s how we overcome it.

When this is accomplished, that’s when you’ll find that there is no substance whatsoever behind the fear, and when this realization hits you, the ‘next fear’ is not going to be as threatening as the former was, and then when you overcome that too (by going after it), it’s just fades away more and more until it no longer has anything on you, and that’s when it can no longer take hold in your mind and heart.

This is when you have mastered yourself.

To not meet it is destructive to your spirit, it saps the will and makes you feel weak and small, but by meeting it and dealing with it you will be able to live as an unafraid human being, feeling confident and with an inner calm and peaceful presence and poise about you.

So whatever turmoil is going on in your life;

Meet it head-on, don’t shy away from it, get to the bottom of it, and by doing this you will become free from it and be able to live as you’re meant to; free from the fears and worries of the false self and the ways it operates in your life and mind.

Bring fear and worry into the light of Truth and let the Light dissolve it and remove it from your mind and heart and your whole being. It does not belong to you. Inner peace and harmony does.

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.

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.

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 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 your insightful article.And in additions to all that are geniusly said, I can only add that fear is one of the primary emotions and the other primary emotion is love(abundance). Fear in itself is not bad because fear being an emotion implies that fear is also our emotional guidance.Every reality in our world is created by our mind and our mind can either create from fear or love.We must therefore,need to consciously watch over the mind to detect whenever fear is at work in us.The Universe (or any of the myraid names for the Universe) said in Proverbs_4:23 that “we must watch over our mind with all our strength to ensure that the mind does not mistakely create what we do not want from fear”. Consciously living from our true identities is the only antidote to fear.Fear cannot dwell in us once we are consciously living from our knowledge of the permanence of our cosmic umbilical cord to the Universe. Take good care of yourself and I love you always.
