Today’s “LUNCH WITH MARIA”  is about dealing with your basement (or other places where you store shit you don’t need)! 😉 

Join me in the 30 DAY BASEMENT CHALLENGE! In our lives we are reflecting back what is happening in our energy bodies by how we live our lives… Many of us have cluttered basements, which is also blocking our life’s flow because they represent the lower three chakras where most of your gunk/trauma/stress lives.  It’s nothing we need so let’s learn to let it go! It’s time we addressed this issue!

Your Simple Assignment… Take out one box/bag/item a day for 30 days. If you’re joining in leave a comment of what you are committing to! For extra results, invite a friend to do to it too! Every day post a photo or comment that you did it!

Use #basementbyebye in homage to LETTING GO! 

Let’s do this together and clear up some of that energy in our lives… while creating abundance for others who need the very things we are hoarding.

ASK COACH MARIA: He Wants to Leave His “Soul-Sucking” Job :(


Hello Coach Maria!!!

I want to leave my art teaching position, which is in a soul-sucking school district, and I want to take my career as an Artist from part-time, to full-time/incoming earning. Do you have any advice? You seem amazing!!

Thanks so much,

Sam Franks,  Southampton, Massachusetts


Hey beautiful Sam,

Lots of people are going through this. First and foremost, keep breathing. Long, deep breaths. Without that nothing else will really works.

Second, step out of your life. Look at it as if you were someone else… without judgments or pre-conceived stuck-points. From that viewpoint, ask yourself the freedom questions you need to accomplish your goal of making a living at being a full-time artist.

I can truly feel your soul’s calling for that. I see it happening. Add some creativity to your journey… and the breath… and you will see the path that has been invisible to you.

Great big hugs,

To BE or Not To BE…

Hello Beautiful CMM Loves!

These are challenging times. There is soooooo much going on that it can drive you to distraction… which is what many people are doing… being distracted… cocooning… hiding… avoiding…because many of us feel:

  1. Powerless.
  2. Depressed.
  3. Disconnected.
  4. Lost.
  5. Disoriented.
  6. Unmotivated.
  7. Defeated.

Have you felt like this?

Let’s have some fun here. Yup, I said FUN because TO HAVE A HAPPY LIFE means stopping EXACTLY where you are… and starting from that “imperfect” point!

Notice when you feel STUCK…

Notice when you feel ICKY…

Notice when you feel HEAVY…

You are getting “feedback.”

What does it mean? It means you are “leaking your precious energy”… becoming energetically smaller… less you! More empty of yourself. The feedback comes in the form of feeling ICKY, STUCK, DEPRESSED or HAPPY, FREE, LIGHT, FLOWING… you get the idea.

Most people confuse the feedback for who they are. Instead of FEELING depressed, they say they ARE depressed. Energetically that is completely different.

FEELING (to feel) – The first is a FLOW POINT, a moment in time that is passing. I FEEL… is about movement… which our energy body needs and loves!

ARE (to be) – The second is a STUCK POINT, a non-moving, all encompassing term. I AM… is about having already labeled… there is no room for movement. This serves us with what we want to keep in our world but not for things we want to move quickly through.

This is a quick blog to keep you moving in the direction of LOVE (which I define as “freedom” and “flow”). If you want to learn more, check out the book FINALLY FULL OF YOURSELF: Unlocking Your Spiritual DNA.

YOUR FREE BONUS… Want extra support? It’s your lucky day! Go to When you get there, fill out the POP-UP that comes up for you. Once you do, you’ll get an incredible resource, THE 7 HELPERS based on the work in FFOY. PLUS, you will also get a 5-pack series of emails that will help you with your focus on freedom. It’s FREE!
