Hi, I am Maria, and I am an addict. I am a mother and a wife. I have been looking for a way to end my suffering since I was a kid. I loved to hear bible stories about Jesus when I was young. They kept me going till I was about 28. Then, my daughter died. During my grieving time, I had an experience of love like no other. I felt so loved by God for about 6 months. But experiences come and go, so that’s what happened for me, too. I kept looking for a way to get that experience back. I kept reading books. One day I came across, Loving what is, by Byron Katie. And that was the beginning of a long journey of questioning my thoughts. I still struggle with lows, but I’m quicker to use Byron Katie’s process called The Work to come back to my sweet self. (Byron Katie’s website: http://thework.com/en)
At times, I watch different teachers that I find are like Jesus, in my opinion, to help me relax. I watch mainly Mooji’s videos, sometimes Gangaji’s. I also meet with Tom Das on Skype every two weeks.
Another way I found to relax is Reiki which I do occasionally on myself.

I don’t have a lot of friends, but the ones I have are really sweet and they usually have a website of their own.
