In a few days I will be fulfilling one of my life dreams! Maria’s Wisdom Retreat in Maui! I am facilitating this life empowering retreat for wonderful, courageous and soulful people who like me, have heard the calling to live in their “joy” and create miracles in their lives.
The road which brought me to this moment, is paved with deliberate intention and spiritual practice. Most of my early life was rather conventional: typical high school, then college student, marriage, then two children, all while balancing a career, family and personal ambitions. A life of blindly following the expected social norms. I have no complaints, I love my life, yet I firmly believe all of life’s experiences are great teaching and learning tools in the curriculum of spiritual growth.
On a sunny day roughly 20 years ago, I began to wake up to a new reality. A book that had been sitting on my mother’s shelf leaped into my hands and as I read, I escaped into its deep and meaningful rhythm. This quote captured my heart and mind:
“Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
Herein lies the peace of God.” ACIM
This is how A Course in Miracles, begins, it makes a clear and foundational distinction between the “real” and the “unreal” and between knowledge and perception. I was at a place in my life where I could use the peace of God. I fumbled through the book, seeking this miracle, a promise of inner peace. Through its lessons, I began to accept and allow the “real” me to shine. Three books in one, it is lofty and not made for a casual read. However it spoke to my heart and I have to this date reviewed its works three separate times, in three separate yearly studies.
The lessons in A Course in Miracles, have for me, become life practice. As I reflect on each passage and apply the “practice” I am genuinely and mindfully uniting with team “Holy Spirit”, calling into my life the benefits of: Joy, Forgiveness, Healing, Love, and Holiness.
Over the years my true consciousness has bloomed through the darkness of mundane life and I now see with new eyes, another way to live and be in this world. Finally, I feel the courage to share my spiritual gifts with the world. I have claimed: my profound intuition, and clear connection with the angels as a integral path in my life. I have stepped into my role as a “Spiritual teacher and Soul coach” and I support many others on their own journey to the “real” being of whom they are meant to express in their lives. All due to courageously owning my true authentic self. With ambition I began sharing what I love and who I am with the world. As we fast forward to the present time, I am so excited once again step into a dream come true, just as I have co-created with specific intention and God’s loving guidance.
Everyday, is a day of reaching goals and manifesting dreams. I have learned to simply hold my desires in my consciousness as my truth. Something I learned through the many lessons of life and practice of mindful intention.

I believe: “What you think today, creates tomorrow, and what we feel on an emotional level, begins to manifest.” Self awareness and good intentions are the seeds to powerful life changes.
