The Truth About Spiritual Awakening

The Truth About Awakening, and Waking Up From Spirituality 

I was inspired to do this recording for you today because I feel it’s important to kind of make a clear break with the past and as I shared with you in one of my recent articles, things has radically shifted for me and I’m no longer the person I used to be.

So things are not going to be like they have been before in my Teleclasses as I have awakened from many of the things I used to teach and write about, and in this recording I’m sharing a little bit about those things just to make it clear where I stand now, and how things are going to be from now on.

In this recording I’m speaking a little bit about the truth about spiritual awakening – and also about waking up from spirituality, because that’s what awakening is; you wake up from illusion, and what the spiritual marketplace so to speak has to offer is not much different than what religion has to offer, which is just more delusion, only in different forms.

What is described as awakening is nothing more than an idea of what the ego likes to think it is, and thus more and more ego’s buy into the whole illusion. 

Spiritual awakening doesn’t make you a blissfully smiling, soft speaking “love and light” lovey-dovey type of ‘spiritual person’, that’s the spiritually enlightened ego’s idea of this whole thing (that you become more spiritual), and that’s not what it is about at all.

Truth is that when you wake up, you wake up from spirituality too.

Yes, .. you wake up from spirituality too, realizing that spirituality is one of the most effective tools for delusion there is.

This includes religion and different kinds of cults, Guru worshiping and so on; they are all pretty much the same thing.

It’s all designed by the ego to keep you from looking deeper and more closely into Truth and most importantly, into what is not true and real.

It’s never questioned in fact. 

The truth about awakening is that there can be, and many times there is, loss; loss of what you call “your life”, which can include loss of your home, a loved one, money, your reputation, loss of friends, and people and family might even resent you and leave you. 

There can be immense, terrorizing, agonizing fear, even deep and severe depression and suicidal thoughts. 

I’m telling you; awakening is a messy process and honestly I can’t but laugh sometimes when I read or hear about some people’s description and ideas of spiritual awakening.

It’s not about spiritual experiences of oneness and unity and all those kinds of things.

That’s not what awakening is; those things are spiritual experiences but they are not the same as spiritual awakening. 

In the process of awakening you have to be willing to have your egoic identity triggered and challenged and you have to be willing to go through a radical destruction of the self you take yourself to be.

What the spiritual awakening process is about in reality is that your identity unravels in the process, your world as you see it crushes, you’re dying – and you’re being born again, in Spirit, and it’s not comfortable at all;

You’re dying for God’s sake! 

It’s a process of (spiritual) death and rebirth so who in their right mind can even think that it’s a process that is filled with endless bliss, love and light?

Only the ego thinks that. Only the ego 🙂

In this recording I talk more about these things (which I know some of you can relate to that is already deep in the process of awakening) and I also invite you to join me in my Teleclasses where we can talk more.

In the live calls we can talk about whatever processes you are going through and so on, and if you have any questions or topic requests, then bring ’em on as well!

Here’s the audio recording for you:

You have really made a difference in how my mind works

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

Beyond grateful for the transformational journey we shared

Maria, I am beyond grateful for the transformational journey we shared. it was nothing less than a miracle that has allowed me come into who I really am. I wake up every morning with a big smile on my face, feeling immense gratitude for just being alive, I can’t explain it, I´m just enjoying this fully. Your guidance has so profoundly changed my life, and I cannot thank you enough.

— R. Los Angeles, USA

You are truly a gift to us all!

I can’t even begin to express how much I have gained internally after my session with you. You have been an instrument of peace in my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

– Owen, USA

I had a complete turnaround to my situation

I 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!

– Sophie P

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.

This journey with you has been amazing

Words cannot fully express the profound impact of my session with you – it has been nothing short of magical. You helped me remove the blockages that held me back, helped me recognize my true worth, and providing so much insight that has been truly life-changing!

— Sarah K.

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 able to see where you are at in your journey and can 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

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 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!

– Lisa, USA

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!

— J. Carlson

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

During and 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.

    wow maria its so refreshing to hear someone say it as it really is and yes boy am I right there, just as if you know all about me ! ….thank you so much

  4. I’m so glad to hear that Don 🙂

    Yes, my blog is like a ‘journal’ almost where I have shared from my awakening process before I knew exactly what was happening as well as when I was in the awakening process and now after the awakening, so I’m glad to hear that what I shared in this audio was somehow helpful to you because I know that this path is not all about “love and light” lol! 🙂

    I know that many can relate to what I have shared both in the past (older articles etc) and also today like in this audio for example, so thank you for letting me know that it resonated with you, it’s always nice to hear.

    It’s literally a death and rebirth process and the one who began the journey (or as in my case; when the awakening happened to me without me choosing it) and the one who wakes up is not the one and the same.

    So looking back even to some of my earlier Teleclasses for example I can see with absolute clarity how the false self tried to save itself because of the challenging life-situation I was in in regards to losing my home and so on.

    But all that was of course helping the awakening, and so here I am today;

    A new phase of my life has begun and who knows what will come next.

    All I know is that I will continue writing and sharing from my own life as well as answering questions from my readers/members of my site, following the thread and current of Life that is laid up in front of me as I go.

    And I will continue to do my Teleclasses etc etc, only in different ways since I don’t like the word “class” so much anymore because of the simple fact that it’s mostly about unlearning and not learning.

    The journey continues; there’s no end to the evolutionary process, and I love that about life!

    We are forever evolving, expanding and discovering more and more about ourselves and life..! 🙂

    How did you awaken? Would like to hear about it. What you said resonates with me.

  6. It was a very long process that span over a period of a decade or so, too much to share in a comment, but I have shared lots of my processes and the things I went through here on my website which I started to write in 2009.

    In many ways my website is a documentation of how my process unfolded for me and how I came to the day when I knew I was done (when the process was over and I had awakened).

    This doesn’t mean however that I’m done evolving and growing, it just means I have awakened.

    Life goes on – albeit in a different way than before 🙂
