2018 August Lions gate Ascension and prepping for Costa Rica

Greetings humans,

How are each of you faring this astrological season?  

Colorado is on fire and the Lionsgate Portal just opened on 8/8.  What this means is that we are in a potent vortex of cosmic ascension and acceleration energy.  Not to mention that we have quite a few planets still in retrograde so it can feel like energy and life is standing still and even regressing backwards while new energies flood in at the same time.

In all transparency, this time and the past week since Lionsgate opened has been dissolving me on all levels.  

Physically, my body in undergoing changes and what feels like “ascension sickness”. Mentally, I have had every single insecurity, doubt and self defeating thought arise during this time.  Emotionally, I have been all over the board and irrationally reactive and emotionally volatile. Spiritually, I am questioning everything including my intuition which is the basis of my entire reality.

It’s rocking my world, humbling me and I feel as though I am undergoing a heck of an upgrade here although the process has been excruciating, humbling and very uncomfortable for about a week now.

The energetic intensity has me strongly desiring to exit the planet.  It’s wild the places I have gone and the duality that has been surfacing within my reality.  

My strategy?  

Surrender.  Submission. Allowing.  Breathing. Crying. Sleeping.  Trust. Cursing.

I have taken so many naps this week it is ridiculous.  

Now, this isn't my first time experiencing an upgrade like this although it surely is one of the most uncomfortable experiences I have had in awhile.  

The magnitude of the upgrade I am receiving mirrors the extent of the discomfort.  When spirit showed me my path as a channel years ago, I was told that it was my job to be a vessel for the upgrade frequencies of the planet.  This has led to quite a few rather intense and uncomfortable ascension and transmission spiritual experiences.

My own medicine

During this last ceremony I had a facilitator finish her training so I got to drop in fully with the medicine, which is always my reward for a graduating student, and the release was monumental. Beautiful, even. I required all the support the ceremony had to offer!  It’s a good thing I taught my facilitators so well! I was infinitely grateful for the love, affirmation and support I received that day. As a healer, I am in great need of healing especially as my abilities expand and grow which they have been at a rapid pace. What a week, thank you for bearing witness to my process.


This week I begin the next phase of my journey: traveling around the US the next few months before I move to Costa Rica. As mentioned previously, I am shifting all my offerings (except for ceremony and Costa Rican in persons) online.

Over the next few months I will be launching two new courses The Sensitive Soul - Tools for the highly sensitive person and The Magic Man - The Magnetic, Authentic, Gentle, Intuitive, Companion which will be my new online tantric offering for men who are wanting to take their game, relationships and intuition to the next level and rise with the Aquarian Golden age of spiritual awakening.

In addition to that, you can find me in my new bimonthly New moon and Full moon offerings where I will be leading group magic and doing group readings for those of you who feel called to participate. Each one will be unique to whatever cycle we are in and offer valuable tools, support and energetic activations that you won’t want to miss.

I am very excited for this next phase and also a little nervous about shifting away from the beautiful community and practice I have created here.  There are just a few more opportunities to participate in ceremony with the Tepezcohuite before I depart. This includes private ceremonies with us if the group vibe isn’t feeling comfortable for you.  

We will be having a beautiful and potent afternoon gathering and a magical place called the Morrison house out here in Morrison Colorado.  Join us for an afternoon of Movement, Magic and Medicine as we activate ourselves and one another and dive deep into our beings.

So many beautiful ways in which to connect.  

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your love and support in growing my practice over these past few years and I look forward to the next configuration of connection with each of you! Be sure to follow my adventures on Facebook and Instagram.  

Soul Much Love,

Reconnect - Healing the Feminine and Masculine energies within

Let's talk about the Masculine and Feminine dynamic! 

Join me and as I demonstrate a great technique for rebuilding the grid within yourself. You'll also learn how to work with these powerful energies. This is a great technique for learning to connect with and heal your masculine or feminine energies. This technique is beneficial to those who are single or wanting to work on repairing energetic constructs in an existing dynamic, but also to anyone who feels unbalanced in these energies.   

I would love to hear your feedback! 

Burn It Down

Wow is it dry in Colorado this summer.  Fires are sprouting up everywhere!  

Fire, the energy of destruction, leads to new growth and life.  Sometimes we have to burn things down to start fresh.

I have many changes on the horizon.  After August, I will be hitting the road on a journey to find the water I need in order to grow new life. I have become tired of living in the traditional American way.  I crave a life filled with experience and opportunity, nature and connection.  

I find myself on an adventure somewhere around the world every year or so. This time, I shall be leaving in search of a different way of living.  One that is more connected to nature and my natural rhythms. One that involves community and connection with our Earth Mother.  One that has a smaller footprint and focuses on renewable energy, getting away from electronics and static that our society is inundated with.  I remain a naturalist and love to be surrounded by plants and trees and animals.

As of right now, I have committed to a winter in Costa Rica at a place called Pachamama where renewable earth practices and permaculture have a seat at the table, alongside personal development and spirituality. My journey begins before winter,  with the expiration of my lease at the end of August, with an intention to be nomadic, listening closely to the voice of my higher guidance.  

Catch me if you can!

I will be supporting all my wonderful clients from the road via phone or video call. Did you know my readings are just as potent online? However, energy healing is not. Medicine ceremonies are not. I invite you to join me for an in-person healing session or a medicine ceremony before I leave. But don't be shy when I leave - I will continue to take clients in my home office through August and then will focus largely on online coaching while I explore internally and travel.

Tasty New Online Offering: Past-Life Regressions

In addition, I have some new services that I am offering and some new online offerings coming up that I am really excited about.  

First. A continuation of my Psy-Chic Thursdays but with a focus on Past Life Readings.  I have been doing psychic readings for the last six weeks and have noticed that I am attuned to past lives. The information has been coming in really clear and I want to share the access I have going on currently. These readings are a great way to connect your past energies to your current life happenings. I will open up your akashic records to access a lifetime that is most directly affecting you in your present reality.  You can ask questions, get clarity and learn more about yourself and where you came from through these readings.  As with past Psy-chic Thursdays, you'll get a serious discount - $77 (normally $150). This sweet deal is only available on Thursdays.  

New Programs: Intro to Psychic Abilities & The MAGIC Man

Second. I am launching two new online programs, including an intro to psychic abilities course and another that I am super excited about called The M.A.G.I.C. Man. The first is pretty straight forward - an introduction to psychic abilities - perfect for those of you who have seen the value of the psychic world and want to connect with it. The second is for men.

As I look around at my spiritual communities, I see women. Lots of them. Where are the men? I want to connect the masculine and feminine energies, and in doing so, create more harmonious relationships. The MAGIC Man is for the man seeking connection but failing to find a strong signal. I will guide you on a journey to your intuitive abilities, one that will deepen your capacity for intimacy and improve your experience of dating and loving. Prepare to learn some yummy tantric energy skills and activate your metaphysical abilities, emotional intelligence, and space holding potential.

Thanks for Playing

Please book an in-person session with me while you still can. The 6-week countdown is upon us!

Thank you for following my journey and for your continued belief in my practice.  

With Love and Energy,


Psy*Chic Thursday: Past Life Reading Special

Starting this week  Psy-Chic Thursday's reading specials will be changing to Past Life Readings!

Maria will access a past life from your Akashic Records that is directly influencing your life currently, allowing you to gain access to a deeper connection between you and your past aspects. Allow the past to reveal the constructs and karmas that may be impacting you today.

If anybody needs a recommendation, I can let you know from first-hand experience that Maria is truly the spiritual Goddess guide to work with.  Sometimes we think their addictions in this lifetime or patterns that just don’t make sense yet we keep on repeating. It’s almost always a karmic pattern that one’s conscious, we could start to unfold and then repair and then with a full inner spirit and higher self move on.
— Michele Ater, a Past Life Reading client

This special will be running for a few weeks as a way of connecting with new clients. These sessions are done via Zoom video call and are recorded for later playback. Be sure to bring your questions or simply request to have your recording emailed to you.

These sessions are normally $150 but you'll get them for $77 with this special, a huge discount!

Heart-Brain Connection

You can reduce your cortisol levels, reactivity, and anger by reestablishing the connection between heart and brain.

In this 10-minute video, I share more about the importance of the heart-mind connection and demonstrate a short, simple technique for achieving and growing that connection. It will help you be more relaxed, more the of the time. Relaxation is our healthiest, most healing state. It activates youth and vibrancy. It shifts how we engage with the world. When you are able to tackle difficult situations with authentic communication

The energy of our body follows our breath. Once the connection is established, we'll tune into intuition and ask questions of the heart. The mind often creates complex and confusing answers to our questions but the heart is simple and short.

Heal your life through energy and approach the world from a place of calm. All it takes is 3-minutes a day of focused attention on the heart, inviting in gratitude, appreciation, care, and compassion.

Energy Tools for the Sensitive Person (Empaths)

Have you ever been described as overly sensitive? Do you feel like a highly sensitive person?  

Highly sensitive people make up around 17% of the world's population and are often referred to as empaths - people with the ability to apprehend the emotional or mental state of another being. Take the quiz below if you suspect your are an empath!


  1. Do you feel overstimulated by crowds, sounds, and lights?  
  2. Do you require a lot of alone time to recharge?
  3. Can you feel the emotions of the people around you?  
  4. Do you have a hard time tuning into your own thoughts and feelings but can tell what others are feeling around you?  
  5. Do you feel that you have heightened senses of sight, hearing, smell or taste?  
  6. Do you feel you have a hard time fitting in to groups of people?  

If you answered yes to these questions, then you might be an empath.  

It is really difficult to live in the loud, crowded world as a highly sensitive person.

I am an intuitive empath. This means that, in addition to apprehending the emotions of others,  I am able to see and sense subtle energies in others. For years, this presented as a curse.  I would randomly start to cry in groups of people, have a hard time breathing at concerts, feel irritated by traffic and grocery stores. Sound familiar?

How To Deal with It: Numb It with Drugs or Process It

In the past, I turned to drugs and alcohol as a way to dampen these senses. As a way to block out feeling. That shifted when I started learning about subtle energy and how to use energy to bring a higher sense of fulfillment to my life. Today, I am sober. I still experience a lot of contrast in my life, but now I have such an array of tools to help me come back into alignment that I don't think to block the feelings that bubble up.

I still feel overwhelmed when I go into grocery stores or to places with a lot of people. When I get around people who don’t care for themselves my energy body cringes and protests.  It’s still a thing. The difference is that now I know what is happening, I have more tools for navigating it, and I make better choices knowing that I feel so deeply and that my chosen environment will probably influence those feelings.

It’s taken me a long time to learn to be okay with this sensitive super power and I am thankful that, rather than being victim to  my sensitivities, I have now turned them into a thriving business and career.

You are not alone, there is support for your sensitive soul out in the world.  

This month, I have included a short energy sensing video with a few tools for learning to feel subtle energy more and a meditation to help you feel safe in your bubble while still being available for connection with the world.


Ready for more support?

In addition, this month I have a super special offer for Psy-Chic Readings every Thursday.  This is my way of getting to know new beings and energies and allowing you to try my work for a huge discount. These readings are a great way to begin tuning into what is happening in your energy body.  We will look at what is going on inside you and answer any questions you may have about energy, life, relationships, career and otherwise.

Moon Rituals + New Moon Ritual Download

As a sensitive being you may have noticed that the different stages of the moon affect your mood, sleep, sensitivities and many other things. In many traditions around the world, the energy of the moon is used to enhance spells and rituals and enliven new projects and manifestations. The energy from the moon is so powerful that it affects the tides in every ocean on Earth, imagine the pull it must be having on the waters within each of us.
