“I had failed on an epic scale. My marriage imploded, I was jobless, a lone parent and as poor it is to be in modern Britain without being homeless.
The fear that my parents had for me and that I had for myself had come to pass. I was the biggest failure I knew.
Why is it important to talk about the benefits of failure?
Failure is stripping away of the inessential.
I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was and began to direct all my energy into finishing the only work that mattered to me
Have I succeeded at anything else, I might not have found the determination to succeed in the one arena where I truly belonged.
I was set free because my greatest fear has been realized and I was still alive.
I had my old typewriter and a big idea. Rock bottom became a solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.
You might never fail on the scale I did but some failures are inevitable.
It is impossible to live without failing at something. That you lived so cautiously that you might as well not lived at all in which case you fail by default.
Failure taught me things that I couldn’t have learned any other way. I discovered that I had a strong will and more discipline than I had suspected.
The knowledge that you have emerged wiser and stronger from setbacks means that you are ever after secure in your ability to survive.
You will never truly know yourself until you have been tested by adversity.”
J.K. Rowling (excerpt from her speech)
I felt the need to share this with you today. There is freedom on the other side.
If you’re someone on the verge of a breakthrough, meaning life is uncertain right now, don’t give up whatever it is you so strongly desire.
We are in the midst of radical transformations, stepping fully in our truth as women, with the ability to serve so many with our gifts and talents whatever uniquely that is to each of us, embodying our natural feminine soul types —no struggle, no sacrifice, no compromise.
The one thing holding you back from your dreams is making a decision.
Each day we’re flooded with decisions and you know what? It’s a wonderful thing. A decision keeps us in the game excited. It generates clarity.
Make a decision and go of it.
Many women who make the decision to work with me begin the activation process soon as they commit. The SHIFTS can happen that fast — IF you allow them. They start feeling lighter and coincidences start happening.
I have 2 spots open for PRIVATE Mentorship in Beautiful YOU that is giving women the confidence to live a divinely inspired life after healing from the past.
What are you ready to let go of? Who are you ready to embody? What is your deep desire for the rest of the year? Don’t hold back. Let’s talk. Schedule a time here.
“Having a session with Maria is like having tea with a teacher who knew you before you imposed your ideas and limitations on yourself. Her work calls up ancient wisdom, guides with whom we can converse, reaching them by reaching within. I left with the feeling of having my heart simmer with the knowingness that the only obstacle I have is my head. Also I have this notion that I should be more polite to my muses. I recommend Maria to women who are open to self exploration, probably those who have an eager heart and mind. Most people are becoming less suspicious of metaphysical conversations, alternative healing methods, and are actively looking for more evolved solutions to life. Maria is that guidance from a friendly voice with a higher connection.” – Miranda F, Arroyo Grande, CA
