Thank You Everyone! [India]
After I announced on my website that I will be going to India in January 2016 I have received wonderful emails and other support regarding the trip and I wanted to write a few words to you, to all of you who have sent love my way.
Thank you to everyone who’s supported me (some of you have been with me for years) and who continue supporting me by subscribing to my membership site (and Teleclasses), and thank you to all of you who read my other articles and postings as well and share them with others, I appreciate you all so much.
And I don’t mean that just for my India trip, but overall; you really mean the world to me.
I love how you continue to inspire me with your questions and topic requests and I love hearing from you via Emails, talking with you, and even the ones that don’t like what I share, I am grateful to you too because believe it or not, your crazy emails and comments (that I never publish), they too inspire me to continue writing and sharing what I share.
Since I wrote this post: mariaerving.com/energy-exchange some of you have extended your support towards me and so far I have been given some of the things I need such as a cheap phone and an Indian SIM-card and a contribution to buy Indian clothes on Amazon for 5000 INR, as well as a power-bank to my laptop/phone/Tablet (whatever it is that I will bring with me on my trip).
All these items will await me when I arrive to India and I’m really grateful for these wonderful gifts so thank you again for your generosity.
I also want to say thank you again to another one of my readers who surprised me big time with a donation of $500 (!) – that’s the biggest donation I have ever received (in one sum) and when I saw the notification from PayPal I almost choked on my morning coffee!
And after reading it again all I could do was dance around in the kitchen and laugh, I was (and still am) so happy 🙂
Every now and then I receive gifts around $50, $75 and $100 (on an average – but all amounts are always very much appreciated) via my donation button and I’m always so grateful and deeply touched (more than you can ever know!) by my readers generosity towards me, and this one was the biggest gift so far so at first I couldn’t believe my eyes.
Especially because of the reason for this contribution/gift;
Many times when I write an article to someone I never know how they will receive it because of the fact that some people take offence (their ego’s get offended) while others embrace what I share and are open to being challenged or they are simply just open-minded enough to appreciate it.
It all depends on how open people are and how dedicated they are to their spiritual growth and awakening process, and I know that my style of writing can sometimes be assertive and written in a no-nonsense kind of way (and not in a stereotypical lovey-dovey spiritually ‘correct’ way).
So it was extra encouraging for me to receive this donation because it was after I wrote this article: mariaerving.com/soulmate-myth for a reader that I received the contribution and they had left a message for me saying “Donation for your trip to India and for all your help!”
I want to once again say thank you to you, it really means the world to me to know that what I share is appreciated and it’s a huge help for me when it comes to saving up enough money for my trip. So thank you again.
For all of you; subscribers, readers, every person I come in contact with in one way or another through my website and emails and Skype, all of you;
Thank you for being in my life and for being with me on this journey through life.
I appreciate you all more than words can describe and I really want you to know that.
I want you to feel that in your hearts and I hope these few words of appreciation and gratitude reaches the depths of your hearts in the same way you have touched mine.
I’m so very grateful for all of you.

Other wonderful things that are unfolding regarding to my trip to India is that I have come in contact with someone that writes for Lonely Planet.
We met at a live music event a couple of weeks ago and will meet again soon to talk more, and guess what he writes about? India!
How awesome is that? 🙂
I’m sure he can give me a lot of great advise, plus I can borrow books from him about India, so that’s really great. I especially want to read the Lonely Planet book about India traveling so that’s the first one I will borrow from him.
Another person I have met recently is a woman who has traveled in India (backpacking) for many years and I will meet here again too and from the brief conversation we had she seem to be one of those people you can listen to for hours as she has a lot of interesting stories to tell from her traveling adventures so I look forward to meeting her again too.
Other things to mention so far;
I had no clue where to get a backpack (this is whole new world to me, literally) and was looking for one on eBay but found quickly out that the postal charges would be more than the actual backpack so I didn’t want to buy it from there, but then someone mentioned a store in Competa where they sell all kinds of hiking and camping equipment.
Competa is a mecca for hikers, or Andalucia overall is I would say; the nature is absolutely gorgeous here and there’s a lot of hiking trails all around this area of Spain.
So anyway, I had never went in to have a look because from the outside it looks like they only sell hiking shoes and things like that but when you step into the store there’s a lot of different things there, it’s actually quite big, so when I discovered this I was so happy!
They have backpacks there and sleeping-bags and other things I need for my trip.
I was trying on some of the backpacks and when I saw myself in the mirror I was in tears (I’m in tears now as I write this) because I’m so happy that this has come to me; the call from India to go and explore the gifts she has for me.
And when I was looking at myself in the mirror with the backpack on it all felt so real to me suddenly, like “I’m actually doing this!” and it was really emotional 🙂
I look forward to it so much!
So in a couple of weeks time when I get back to Competa I will get a backpack from there; it’s like Life has planted the store there for me so that I can easily get what I need without having to order it from somewhere or travel to a larger city.
I have four months to save up enough money and somehow it will work out great with everything, all the planning and practical things that needs to be taken care of and so on, and what I feel very strongly in all this is support.
I feel it from all of you and from Life itself, so Thank You once again for everything so far – it is as I said before, worth more than words can ever describe.
♥ Thank You ♥
And if you feel the call to go somewhere or do something: Go for it!
If it’s what Life wants to do through you, you will be supported and encouraged as you follow the path that feels right for you.
But you gotta be bold enough to move in that directions even if you don’t know how it will all work out with finances or other resources that you need.
I hope my continuous sharing about my own process in all this will inspire you to do what you feel your heart is guiding you to do as well.
