The Most Profound Way To Surrender

When it feels like you been slapped by life, the most powerful prayer of surrender is to say “YES” (and really mean it), a honest and sincere YES, yes to this moment, yes to life, yes to Truth, however it may look.

A YES is an acknowledgement and acceptance of the Truth that we can’t possibly know why a situation looks the way it does, and that all things passes, both the joyful moments and the sad ones.

“YES, I surrender to this moment – as it is” – and from that acceptance clear intuitive guidance can come forth.

It’s when we resist or resent the present moment that we cloud clear vision and wisdom from shining light on our path.

The mind feels uncomfortable when challenged, it wants to have opinions and judgments about what is (that’s what minds do), it doesn’t like the idea that this moment might be alright or okay, or that there might be a higher perspective that it has no access to, or that it can even begin to comprehend. (Truth is beyond mind).

It likes to think it knows the reasons for everything or that there at least are reasons that it can understand.

It wants to project a problem that needs to be solved, and then we, if we are unconscious, we act upon what the mind thinks about something without ever even questioning it, or reflecting before acting.

Most of humanity just go like sheeps through life, interpreting this moment through the filters of ideas and mind-made conclusions, and this is not to be judged within ourselves as being wrong or bad, just see clearly that this is how we have been trained to react to life, and when we see this clearly there’s no need to blame anybody, including ourselves.

The clear seeing and awareness is enough to set ourselves free.

So it’s actually a good thing to be challenged, to get the structures of mind questioned and doubted.

I don’t mean this in a way that is confrontational or to be obsessed with fighting the mind or anything, but by being open to fresh viewpoints and not to rigidly hold on to belief structures, stuck with convictions and conclusions based on the limited minds views and projections.

Sometimes we do need to make an effort to not make an effort too and simply let go of it all. To simply drop it all like a hot potato. 

And the most clear cut way to become free from the minds opinions about a situation is to surrender to not knowing by saying yes to it (to Life as it is, and not how we think it is), yes to the moment, yes to an opening to Truth – that is how we make ourselves available to Grace.

By a simple YES to this moment, like there is no other moment but this.

No tomorrow, no past, only this. Where can mind then go? Nowhere.

See how it feels trapped when it can’t project or judge. 

Some things don’t need to get surrendered, some things will just naturally fall away, but usually there’s some thought-structures attached to the situation, or even a person, that we are better off without.

“YES, I let this go too”.

Other things and interests will just suddenly seem to have lost their importance and have disappeared without us having done anything, we just realize one day that it is no longer there. That includes goals and ambitions, which can be very scary for the ego to realize.

“YES, I let those go too”.

The autopilot that the mind runs on seem to have stopped up and there is space again and it was the YES that made the space, and your willingness to it that made it possible. 

The YES can’t be faked and it has to be sincere. There can be no intent to let go for the sake of ‘maybe then I’ll get what I want..’

It’s not an intellectual understanding, and the belief of you thinking you know what the universe ‘needs’ has to go too.

“YES, I don’t know anything. YES, I’m completely clueless. YES, I’m open to Grace”.

It’s unpleasant for the mind to be empty of concepts, it wants to calculate the next move, but to break free from the influence it has with the need to control, we need to let go of our assumptions, ideas and opinions, and all our projections.

Then the false begin to fall away naturally, when we have surrendered Life to itself.

When you can’t go any further on your own, or by your own personal will, that’s the moment of surrender, that’s when a sincere and honest YES can be uttered in your heart.

When all your own attempts to make life happen the way you want it to go, when all your strategies has come to an end and there’s nothing more you can do; that’s when true transformation can happen.

It’s by failure we find our success. Not the success of the ego, but the victory of Spirit.

Say YES to that victory.

If there is any path to Truth, then that would be a sincere and heartfelt YES to this moment, as this moment is Life itself.

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.

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!!!

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.

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.

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!

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!
