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:

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

Maria is beyond amazing

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. 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 is leading people to a new way of being

Maria is changing the world by her presence. She’s leading people to a new way of being. She’s rare because she’s able to see where you are at in your journey and will eagerly show you the way forward. I feel so incredibly grateful that she has been a companion during this time of change. If you feel drawn to connect with Maria I encourage you to move forward with confidence.

Carolyn W. Asheville, NC, USA

I am ready to take on the world!

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

Sincerely.

Mark Neely, Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA

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.

Andrew B, San Diego, CA, USA

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. 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. 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!

  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 🙂
