It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.

What Would Your Soul Do?

Do you ever feel out of alignment and confused and then you start hearing a loud voice in your head saying: “What am I doing?” “I can’t keep living like this” or “Something’s got to change”?  When you’re asking these questions, it’s usually a big clue that your soul is trying to get your attention.

I call these moments: Soul Cry Outs. Your soul is yelling out to you: “Hey! I’m here! I can help!” That’s what’s great about your inner guidance. It sends up signals to both your psychic and physical senses.

When you need a wake-up call, your soul stops at nothing to get it to you. You may even meet a stranger who will somehow give you the message. Your inner guidance can bring up a thought, an action, or even manifest a situation in your outside life to get you to stop and think about what’s happening in front of you.

It’s easy to get caught up in our day-to-day routine and we have a tendency to focus only on our physical world and the issues in front of us - and forget about our spiritual self and its needs.  We pull away from the Source that infuses our soul, which only exacerbates our feelings of being tired, drained or confused. But now more than ever it’s important to force ourselves to check in and reconnect with our soul for its power, wisdom and guidance.

Our Inner Worlds

"Look closely at the present you are constructing. It should look like the future you are dreaming." 
—Alice Walker

I've Been Thinking...


“Happy inner Independence day, Maria!” my friend Tom said to me last Sunday.

Hmm, I thought to myself. Now that’s different. The concept definitely got me thinking, though. It got me thinking about my inner freedom, and my struggle to find it and feel it.

Over the years, I’ve learned that so much of what we are seeking from the outside world is actually an inside job. Freedom, peace, joy, kindness, recognition, worth, and love are just a few examples. 

This revelation came to me later in life since I did not grow up with this message. Quite the contrary, in fact. From the earliest age, it was drilled into me that my purpose was to better the outside world. Plain and simple. “That’s why you’re here,” I was told, “and that’s that!"

The Ten Cardinal Signs Of A Healthy Spiritual Practice

New Age thinking, spirituality, crystals, Law of Attraction, psychics and more, are seemingly at an all-time high in popularity. This has created an amazing platform for new thoughts and dialogue about the potential of the human experience. It has also created a pulpit for fear-based misinformation to be shared. If you have ever felt confused about metaphysical beliefs and practices, keep reading. This blog shares ten cardinal signs of a healthy spiritual practice that can enhance your daily life.

What is Spirituality?

Spirituality can be viewed and experienced in countless ways, but the common denominator is recognizing a feeling or belief that there is something greater than oneself. This experience brings with it an understanding of connection with the cosmic world or universe.

My understanding of spirituality is experiencing life as a continuous expansion of awareness. This expansion occurs when living and creating with an open heart and mind. This mindset welcomes the connection to source and all that is. It holds the potential for love, compassion, joy and inspiration.

What Role Does Science Play In Our Lives?

Science simply means that a condition proves itself. Our lives prove to us each day that we are working within laws and principles,and the more we become in tune with these truths, the greater the magic expresses in our lives. The law of attraction is always working and is always proving itself to the mind of the beholder.

There are no accidents and no coincidences in our lives. Life doesn’t just “happen” unless we have agreed to make it so. A loving person lives in a loving world,a thankful person lives in a thankful world,an angry person lives in an angry world and a victim always experiences reasons to be sorry.

Your Soul Has the Answer You Need

Has your mind been overflowing with questions lately: Will I get the job I want? Am I on the right path? Will my relationship last? Does my loved one who passed have any messages for me? We’re all on a personal crusade looking for answers and we often seek them from other people or the outside world.

I want to let you in on a little secret. You can find all the answers—from your soul!

Our soul is like a computer, constantly absorbing information from our experiences. Every detail is time stamped and logged as though it’s a memory imprinted on the soul. Each and every one of us has a unique soul with our own personal histories, our own values of what’s right or wrong and most important, our own unique way of interpreting and communicating this information. It’s the combination of all these components that makes us who we are.

If you’re looking for answers, look within and start tapping in to this vast database of memories, information and life experiences. Your soul is your inner compass to keep you on track.

Practicing the Presence of Peacefulness

The next time something dark or disturbing tries to steal into you to wreck your contentment, do not consent to be drawn into its seemingly important considerations. Instead of sinking into this yawning abyss, rather than running after something to resolve that rift, better to remember this truth: the peace you long for also longs for you. Then, whatever you must do, find your way to it! Here’s a good place to start. 

Come awake to the backdrop of stillness within you, and while being aware within it, watch your own thoughts and feelings trying to drag you into the noisy world of their worry and fear. If you will go silent before them, they have no choice but to enter into the silence with you. This is how we turn the table on these thieves of peace. They cannot live with you in the light of higher self-awareness. In this mansion there is room for only one. 

You can work at this exercise anytime you remember it. Try it now. Look past the familiar forms around you, including those reactions in you about them. Don’t think about the moment unfolding before you, see it; Be the whole of life in the perfectly present moment. This Now is where the spirit of peace resides. Drop the minutiae, the too-familiar sense of self found in sorting through the particular. Place your attention in the awareness of your thoughts instead of losing your­self within them and what they tell you is happening.

What Do We Mean By Mind?

We often affirm,“There is one life, that life is God and that life is our life right now.”There is one mind and it is expressing in us,as us and through us.There is one power, one mind and one life in all that we see.

Just as the sun beams light in and around all things, mind is everywhere present. On the spiritual dimension,all of our minds are connected through the One. If something is happening to some of us, on some level it is happening to all of us. We are the tapestry of all that is and continues to be in the mind of God.

How To Start Your Spiritual Journey

If you’re looking for more meaning, purpose, depth, or guidance in your life, you may find yourself wondering – how does one start their spiritual journey? 

In our Western Culture, the path to personal spiritual awakening isn’t something that’s been supported as an essential part of our daily lives. But at some point, something may happen that creates a call from the inside → out. A desire to explore the unseen forces of life. The deep questioning that comes with this call can go like this: “There must be more than this, why am I here, where is the truth?”

Reacting To Change

How did reality come into being and emerge into its many forms? Everything began as one singular expression. But in that form of singularity, consciousness, the divine, cannot know itself because it’s only in the experience of itself. One became many. Right now, you and I are manifestations of that same singular energy expressing uniquely through all things. When you get to that point of realizing you are in the experience of yourself, you don’t always recognize how your energy is impacting everyone around you. 

Sometimes things change. It’s always interesting to notice our reaction to the change. Typically, the reaction is based in fear. When a life circumstance changes, or something shifts, we find ourselves with an intensity of feelings. Yet, that intensity of feelings has nothing to do with what has changed.

You Steer Your Life as You Embody the Physical

When we live life by looking for and finding “problems” to fix, this only makes us better at problem-solving.

Yet that is often how we experience life. Moving from one “problem” to another because as we “land” here on earth, we experience what I refer to as a “splat.”

The body goes one way, the mind goes another, the breath yet another way, and the spirit “hangs out” trying to figure out what’s what wondering, “How do I land here fully and live this life?”

This leaves us needing problems to fix in order to know who we are.

We operate from within that dispersed, problem-solving state as if this is how life is supposed to happen. You think, this is real and make do despite the sense of, something’s missing. Slowly, during the course of life you begin to pull yourself back together and start to feel more collected and connected. 

Who do you identify as?

Realization - GPS God Personalized System

Miracles are described as what happens when we wake up one day and “we are there,” we have achieved or arrived at a place in our lives we previously thought to be difficult or nearly unattainable. It seems to be a miracle because we do not recall all the necessary steps it took to get us there.

A realization is when we have an awakening, or an Ah-Ha moment which will free us from an old paradigm of limitation and sorrow. There is a saying: If we knew better, we would have done better.When we have a realization, we are able to do better because we are no longer in our own way.

See the Good

Every morning we have a choice: to see the world as full of blessings or full of problems. The polarities of human perception. It is we who apply the labels, the filtering process. And in doing so, we set ourselves up for either contentment or suffering. Often it is a choice between living from the head or the heart. The mind’s function is to look for problems to solve, so it sees them everywhere. The heart’s purpose is to love, so it sees beauty everywhere. It is of course possible for these two to live in balance, but only if the overall perspective is positive. Then the heart can expand its love to include the mind. Within love, the mind relaxes and looks for peace instead of discord. The two work together to bring about human harmony.

How To Trust Your Intuition!

We are spiritual beings first and human second. Although it goes against what most of us were taught, intuition is our first sense. 

The one that helps us read between the lines, pick up on invisible information, feel things out and make good decisions, and understand the “vibe” we get from a person or situation.

When it comes to developing your intuition, the first thing you have to understand is that your intuition is NOT your intellect. Intuition doesn’t follow linear rules because it isn’t logical or intellectual. But it IS just as important as your intellect. 

In order to navigate our world, we need both – our power of analytics + logical thinking, as well as the soft, nuanced world of intuitive intelligence. 

Trusting your inner-voice means recognizing that certain things that don’t make any sense, but we still know they’re true. This can help us navigate a world where things are changing so rapidly.

Clean Our Light

Dr. Bertice Berry, an incredible award winning author tells a story of when she was 12 until graduating from high school, she cleaned houses to make money. One time an elderly lady told her, “Bertice you got to clean the light.” She asked her, “what do you mean?” And the lady told her “you must clean the main light. Look around the light in the entrance way. Nobody ever gets up high and cleans the main chandelier.” She got the ladder after she was told this and cleaned the main light in the entrance way. Later in  the day the man of the house entered and said “WHOA, this house has never been cleaned so good. Take care of this girl and pay her extra.”

Breaking Free

There is so much energy right now, because of the emergence that is happening in the presence of who we really are. Confront the illusion of who you are living inside of, so you can allow this greater presence to emerge from within like a little chick from an egg pecking her way through the shell. I feel that this is the phase of our journey that we are on. We are that little chick, just peck, peck, pecking that little egg from inside and breaking free. 

That eggshell, is your egoic identity. As your reality begins to align with you, you begin to meet people that are in harmony, alignment and in resonance with you. And through this alignment, you begin to move away from the turmoil you have inside of you to be able to come into harmony with yourself through the acceptance of your humanity.

Are You Pushing Miracles Away?

Creating miracles in your life, manifesting your desires, and co-creating your dream life with the Universe is available to all of us once you learn the simple, but not always easy, steps, to success.

Sometimes we get in our own way.

There once was a woman who saw on the television that her neighborhood was about to be flooded and officials warned everyone should evacuate.

She believed that God would save her, thus she ignored the warning.

Then a city emergency worker knocked on her door and told her to leave for higher ground and she said no, “God will save me.”

Then the floods came, and she had to run up to the second floor to stay dry.

A boat soon came to her second story window to rescue her and she said no, “God will save me.”

Then the second floor flooded, and she ended up on the roof of her home.

The Occupational Hazards of Being a Medium

Are some of you thinking about pursuing a career as a medium? I must warn you that this unique life could come with its occupational hazards. People will definitely look at you a little differently than if you worked in any other profession.

I remember when I was doing a workshop some years ago in Andover, Massachusetts. As I walked into the venue, I noticed two lovely, elderly ladies standing in front of one of the event billboards looking at my portrait. I felt quite flattered. At least until I heard the woman say, “Well, he looks normal!”

People do get a little nervous when they meet me and hear that I’m a psychic medium. I’m not sure what a medium is supposed to look like, but I guess they expect me to be carrying a crystal ball or looking a bit more mysterious.

There is a significant difference between being born and being birthed.

As I continue to celebrate the joy, power and privilege of life, I have made some great discoveries regarding being born and being birthed.

Being born is nature and natural and you were born due to the energy and effort someone was willing to put into carrying you and releasing you. Once you are supported and moving past your teenage years, you do not need to be carried by anyone else. Your soul purpose is to become a self actualized individual based upon what you agreed to before you showed up. As long as you are in bondage or needing to be carried or needing to be approved of by anyone else, you will never know true freedom. More than likely you will settle for mediocrity.

Surprising Ways Connecting With Spirit Will Set Your Life On The Right Path

When giving a reading to a young woman a couple days ago, something slightly different occurred. This reading was special because, right away her loved ones used me to share directional messages.  At first, I wasn’t even aware.  In the magical unfolding of this reading, I was reminded of the surprising ways connecting with spirit will set your life on the right path.

My client has lots of unseen help leading her to the right path.  Her Grandmother came thru and was very determined to get my client moving.  Her father came thru with the direction of new work. She has an amazing team looking out for her.

Your loved ones’, angels and guides are just waiting!  They are there for you when you pause and listen.  It is important to note, that for today I am referencing spirit as the part of you that holds the energy of God.  This is the conduit to receive messages from your guides, angels and all high vibrational beings.

You can use a psychic or medium to help you make the connection, but you also have the ability to receive messages.

Keep reading and discover seven surprising things you may experience when being guided to your true path.

What Is God?

Who or what is God? A question without an answer really—or with an infinite number of answers. For God is not really a concept that can be explained or a puzzle that can be solved. God is an experience, one that is as unique as every individual on this planet or every soul in the universe. And it cannot be contained within any description or answered question. Perhaps metaphor comes closest to expressing what God is.  And we each have our own inner metaphors for the experience of the Divine.

For me, God is the seed at the center of all creation as well as the flower that arises from the seed. It encompasses creation itself. God’s essence is gender-free, formless. God is birth and death, inhalation and exhalation, shakti and shiva, yin and yang. God is the eternal harmony in which there are no false notes, the truth within which there are no opposites, the Oneness that holds everything. God is an endless ocean of love, a light that shines from each individual soul and from the collective Soul of the cosmos. There is nothing I can imagine that is not God, nothing I can experience that isn’t God.
