Michelle P., Los Angeles | Honor Your Heart ♡ Cacao Ceremony—As an optimistic skeptic, I had no idea what to expect when I signed up for a cacao ceremony with Maria. I was completely blown away by my entire experience. From the high-quality cacao that she prepares and serves to the beautiful healing music that she plays, Maria infuses every aspect of the ceremony with intention and is a truly gifted facilitator. Every time I attend a ceremony, I leave with a renewed sense of ease, purpose, and clarity. And I know it's not just me—all of the friends that I bring to these events leave in total astonishment at how incredible the experience is. I am so thankful that Maria is doing her work here in LA!
Pili A., London | Oracle Reading & Auric Field Cleanse—Sincerely one of the best oracle readings and energetic cleanse I've had in my life. All the process we went through from beginning to end helped me connect more and more with myself until I actually felt in sync with the universe.The way Maria structured and channelled the reading helped me easily understand what I needed to work on. Besides, the music that was playing on the background actually ended up making sense with my reading, as well as supporting the reading and adding onto it. Weeks after the Auric Field Cleanse with the sacred tobacco medicine Rapé and Palo Santo smudging, I still felt clean and sure the blockage energy I had been feeling previously was no longer there. I brought my crystals to the altar she prepared for the session to charge them and to this day I like to carry them with me. They remind me of what I experienced during the session and help me remember the healing messages from my guides. Holding them helps me feel better every time I feel I can sink in a negative or low vibration.
Valeria B., Ensenada | Honor Your Heart ♡ Cacao Ceremony—One of the most beautiful experiences in my life! For me, 2016 was a complicated year with lots of transformation, and the Cacao Ceremony Maria held at the end of December was something both my mind and body needed to let go of things/situations that I had to remove from my life in order to welcome 2017 and start a new cycle.I felt a lot of trust with everyone in the circle, the energy was loving and embracing and allowed me to open up and speak up in a way I hadn't experienced before, everyone had something kind to say as feedback to every single story. I would undoubtedly assist to another Cacao Ceremony, I walked out of the ceremony with new beautiful friendships. I'm really grateful for everything I learned, shared and felt. Thanks Maria, one of the most beautiful people that have crossed my path, with a really gentle energy, beautiful, smart, and 100% heart.Thanks to this ceremony my 2017 started with a lot of strength and focus to be a better person. I feel more aware of what my body, mind and heart ask from me to heal and be a better person.I'm really grateful and blessed for having crossed paths with Maria.
Montserrat A., London | Oracle Reading & Auric Field Cleanse—The oracle reading was amazing. It truly guided me and helped me realize things that needed to be worked on in order for me to be in balance with my Self and the universe. The reading reminded me of the strong bases I have and inspired me to become a better person by simply visualizing how my life could be better if I work on aspects of my life that could use some balance.Throughout the reading I felt at peace with all my senses, it was as if all my thoughts were clear. Afterwards, I noticed a positive change in the way I reacted to various situations. Balancing is obviously something you must work on daily, it's not an overnight change, but this reading did help me surrender to take one step at a time and just flow.
Araceli G., Ensenada | Honor Your Heart ♡ Cacao Ceremony—I would describe Maria's Cacao Ceremony as a place where the energy of Connection truly brought us together, sharing the universal gift of living and giving thanks for what we receive day to day.This ceremony was a pause in my everyday routine, where my auditive, visual and gustative senses combined through the music and cacao medicine, to allow letting go of the past in order to truly live the present.Maria, a true, musical and peaceful channel, guided us step by step to absorb every minute of this sacred experience.
Ahrezoo S., Ensenada | Honor Your Heart ♡ Cacao Ceremony—Cacao, Moon, Ocean and Relief. I was doubting whether to assist to this ceremony, my prejudices and insecurities tried to stop me at first, but my need for relief motivated me to go.It was something completely new to me, I knew a few of the other people who were in the group, but the majority were strangers to me. At the end that didn't matter because each heart from this group of planted a seed in my soul.I liked being able to talk about how I was feeling in that moment, the energy of the circle was strong and contained, I felt it safe, as if there were a protecting veil over us. I knew that every sip of the Cacao would heal something inside, so I took my time with it. The angels that flew over me that night gave me the courage to open up to the people around me. I could release and call in healing through singing and writing, and learned that one shouldn't be scared to try new, unfamiliar things. I learned that love manifests itself in thousands of different ways, everyday.We were asked to bring candles, and at the end we all lit them with the center fire, who was guarding our process all along. We were told to light our candles every time we wanted to reconnect with the energy we co-created together during that ceremony. I haven't had the need to light it again so far, just looking at it reminds me of all the eyes shining with love and hope in front of the fire.
