I’m in Trivandrum now! (Kerala)

I feel I’m back in India again! Goa was very touristy and not very “Indian” to me so I’m glad to have left although while I was there I of course enjoyed it.

Trivandrum (or Thiruvananthapuram) is the capital city of Kerala and I have been here for a couple of days or so and will be leaving this bustling city on Wednesday to spend some time in the mountains in Munnar.

I love the contrast!

Munnar has beautiful nature, tea plantations and cooler weather (and rain!) so I look very much forward to go there.

It’s really hot here in Trivandrum now, about 33 degrees C. and in Munnar the average temperature right now is about 26 degrees C.

Since I came to Trivandrum I have been exploring the city, walked for miles everywhere and been to the different Bazaar’s and markets, and yesterday I also visited a few museums.

I have one more that I want to visit and that’s the Science and Technology museum.

Museums are usually not my thing but since I’m here in the city and they are close by, I thought ‘why not?’. 

I didn’t visit the zoo though;

I don’t get what the entertainment value is in looking at animals that are held prisoners, I can’t even walk by the entrance of a zoo without feeling the pain for the animals and the embarrassment of the twisted and sick human nature who finds these things “fun”.

Anyways, ..

It’s great to be here! 🙂 

I also went to the Padmanabhaswamy Temple after someone recommended me to go there and this is a perfect example of why I always ask people about their own experiences (and not just what tourist books says)!

I have to ask this person why he recommended it to me saying “the swami temple is a must if you’re in Kerala!” because when I arrived there I wasn’t allowed to go inside because I’m not a Hindu and I wasn’t allowed to take a picture of the entrance either (not that it was anything special).

And since it was guarded by armed military men and didn’t feel very friendly I just had to turn around and leave.

Not sure what the point is in advertising it as a “must see” since it’s not for the average tourist at all.

Oh, well 🙂

A kind of funny thing to mention is how the men dress here (no offence to anyone); they wear these cloths around their waists, it looks like a towel almost, I have never seen that before.

The women dress very traditionally here as everywhere else in India that I have seen but the men seem to vary a bit in what clothes they wear, like this cloth-thing 🙂

Some of them are longer but most of them are short. In this video below you can spot a couple of men wearing them:

Museums and zoo in Trivandrum. The cost is ridiculously low for both the museums and taking the local buses (Rickshaws cost about 50 rs per 5-6 km).
Trivandrum Kerala to Munnar
Next journey is from Trivandrum to Munnar (both belong to Kerala). It takes about 8 hours to get there.

It was more than I could ever hoped for or expected

I feel like a huge weight have been lifted and I have so much more perspective on what I have been struggling with!

My life has radically changed for the better after I met Maria.

Completely transformed my understanding

Maria guided me to realize that relying solely on my mind (like LOA teaches) wouldn’t lead to the changes I wanted. A profound shift took place within me which completely transformed my understanding and my perspective on life. I am eternally grateful to Maria.

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!

Definitely worth the investment

Maria showed me how magic can be created by my own Being. It was definitely worth the investment in myself. I’m extremely grateful for my time with her.

- Anna

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

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 am so glad that I reached out to you

Maria, you are truly godsend. I cannot describe how happy I am. I have no idea what you did and how you did, but I am truly grateful to you. My words in this email cannot thank you enough. Today is the first day that I woke up feeling as if I am ready to take on the world. I am so glad that I reached out to you. I am truly grateful to you. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family!


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

Something happened within me that I cannot explain

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 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

I’ve had HUGE shifts in my beliefs. Her undivided attention, presence and unique ability to read your state helped me to breakthrough and release old patterns and replace them with new self-empowering practices that have truly shifted my life.

You have really made a difference in how my mind works

Serendipity led me to Maria

Serendipity led me to a life-changing session with Maria. The insights about life and myself that I gained during our session were incredibly liberating and empowering. Her clear and practical guidance helped me create a life that is in alignment with me and what I want. Working with Maria truly felt like divine intervention in my life!

— P.T, New York, USA

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. Thank you Maria!

Britt, Marbella, Spain

Now I know what is creating my reality

I’m overflowing with gratitude and joy! Life has changed dramatically for me after our time together. I have truly realized on a fundamental level what is creating my reality and it has given me confidence for the first time in my life to finally be ME, I feel liberated to be my authentic self!

Can’t recommend her enough!

Working with Maria was one of the best investments I ever made in myself. I’ve seen immediate shifts in my energy as well as learned to work with my own energy and mind. It has been one of the single most transformational experiences of my life. Can’t recommend her enough!

  1. Ok! 🙂

    Another thing about Trivandrum that I forgot to mention in the post is that it’s a bit difficult to find good places to eat here.

    There’s a lot of restaurants but most of them I feel have a questionable hygiene so I avoid them.

    If anyone have any suggestions where to eat then please share below in comments as it can help others that are visiting Trivandrum too.

    And please only share your own personal experiences and not what you have read in tourist guide books! 🙂

  2. Thank you for sharing G, maybe those articles are interesting for some to read, I just quickly skimmed through them.

    A request; maybe next time you could just post the condensed nutshell version in your own words, I prefer those over links to articles, and then, if it catches my interest I can Google for more information myself.

    I’d appreciate that 🙂
