These Questions Will Get You Closer to Self Mastery

Continuing to work with the energies of the moon… here is your Quarter Moon Check-InSide Journal.

This is the perfect time during quarter moon to reflect and check back with the intention you set during the New Moon phase. Does the intention still fit? Does it still feel like you want to take actions steps toward it? This type of questioning prompts you to pause and take another look at what’s going on in your life, another chance to engage.

This phase is called waxing by the way!

Why am I talking about the moon?

First, whether you know it or not your menstrual cycle is linked to the moon. That’s why your menstrual cycle is commonly referred to as your moon cycle. No coincidence!

Look, you’re made mostly of water. Think about the ocean, it’s all water. Does the moon affect the ocean’s tides? Absolutely! The moon affects you, it influences you just like the sun does. The sun makes people happy and the moon makes people reflect and be calm.

Have you ever gone moon bathing?

Moon bathing is just like sun bathing but obviously at night. Imagine yourself lying on a blanket, legs crossed, one arm behind your head, drink in hand, during a warm Summer night with a sky full of stars! That’s moon bathing! I looooove it!

The energies are there and like I’ve said before, why not work with them?!

Now download your journal and get reflecting!

Always here to encourage you,


Why You Need to Practice Shamanic Journeying

Why You Need to Practice Shamanic Journeying

What is Shamanism?  How can it help me?  Is it evil?  Is it a religion?  How can it hurt me?  These are some of many questions I’ve received throughout my career as a psychotherapist.  To put it simply, in my opinion Shamanism is about you learning more about you via spiritual practices that only you can create for yourself meaning, you are your own creator of your own experience. 

What do I mean by you being your own creator?  Let me explain what Shamanism is and then I’ll get back to you as a creator.

Shamanism is a spiritual practice where the Shaman, a healer for her or his community travels, known as journeying into the deep realms of the spirit world, retrieves information from their spirit guides in conjunction with power animals and brings this new-found knowledge to the seeker.  Shamans also work with their ancestors, gods and goddesses of their culture. 

That 6th Sense That We All Have & So Many Don't Use It

I’m embarking on a journey for the next few weeks of Self Intimacy and I’m inviting you to come along!! 

I just started reading this book ‘The Seat of the Soul’ by Gary Zukav  and it’s AMAZING!!  If you like woo woo stuff!  How do you like that title?  I know Right?!  I’m like, the seat of the soul… this gotta be good!  Oprah says that this book changed the way she sees herself.  Wow!  If it did that for her, I can’t wait what it’ll do for us!! I hope you join me. 

The first chapter is on Evolution. 

It's about how physical form is what we learned in school.  It’s tangible, the environment, felt, smelled, heard and seen.  Our five senses if you will.  Physical form leads us to physical power.  Gary calls this part of us, our personality.  Authentic power on the other hand is where it’s at!  That’s our Soul he says, and I agree. 

Authentic power feels good and natural to me. 

Being authentic and speaking from a place that is in alignment with my core is what I strive for.  Not always easy but I try. 

Being authentic makes us want others to be authentic as well. 

Authentic power from what I got from his book is unlike physical power.  People that have physical power want to hoard that power, they don’t want others to be physically powerful too.  That’s the difference.

You really can’t fake authenticity! 

It’s one of those things that needs to be cultivated and nourished.  It’s real.  I believe we all have the capacity to live from authentic power... if we choose to.  Unlike, physical power you can’t buy it and no one can gift it to you.

I don’t think that people who have tons of physical power want to know about authenticity or want to acknowledge the Evolution that’s taking place spiritually in the world today.  Regardless, I think that as a collective, we are continuing to evolve and accept being multisensory beings. 

Even my dogs are multisensory beings!  That 6th sense that we all have and many don’t use.  

You know what I mean by multisensory, right?  I'm talking about intuition, that gut feeling that something may happen, or thinking about someone and they end up calling you in minutes!  Just last week I kept calling one of my clients Susan and I met a Susan the next day!  (I changed the name for privacy reasons)   

Having a multisensory experience to me feels like I'm communing with Goddess, with Spirit.  It mostly happens when I'm practicing yoga and meditating.  I’m in complete bliss.

I'll always be trying to choose life consciously.  The more I choose consciously, the more power I have of myself and my life. 

The more I live from Soul, my intuition the better I feel.  I ain't gonna lie, there're times when my personality steps in!  Think, traffic! Hahaha!

The way I see it, my personality is what experiences anxiety, sadness, confusion, and at times overwhelm.  The soul doesn’t.  The soul doesn’t experience any of that shit!  Think about it… does your soul experience anxiety or sadness?  I don’t think so! 

The soul experiences love, compassion and all the feel good vibes. 

I think that people that aren’t aware of how powerful living from soul and their intuition is, are at a disadvantage.  I think they tend to suffer more.  I think they experience more stress and more shit! 

People that tap into their intuition, like we do and drink from the well within... The Well of the Soul are at a huge advantage!

Living consciously!  I’m so loving this book!!

Loving vibes,  Maria
