Stop fighting with yourself!


Our lessons in this lifetime

Understand alignment

Alignment is that beautiful state of authenticity, self-love, flow and compassion.⁣ It feels as if everything falls into place, as we are a piece that fits perfectly in the puzzle of the Universe at that exact moment.
The more we grow spiritually and change on the inside, the more we aim to be in that state of being as much as we can because we start to see all the wonders that happen when we’re aligned.
I feel aligned when I am working with my life mission. I feel aligned when I am in nature. I feel aligned when I am grounding and when I am connecting to the source and when I am meditating. I feel aligned when I am merging with my beloved. I feel aligned when I am laughing with my children.

Close your eyes and call your soul to show you one of your moments of alignment. Isn’t that the most blissful and amazing feeling?

𝗗𝗮𝘆𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝗻𝗼𝗻 𝗮𝗹𝗶𝗴𝗻𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁

While in our days of blissful unity with the Universe, we feel empowered and into alignment with our essence and higher self, there are also those other days.

Days of darkness, when it requires more effort to go that road.

So many times, when I needed to go deep within the most, I have escaped to tv, a party, food, work and more… So many times. ⁣ It’s like we human beings need to hit our heads in the wall X number of times before we learn to choose differently. ⁣
⁣There are days when I have to discipline myself to go inward and connect. Days that require extra meditation, reflection and the effort to put into words what comes next for me. But those times of massive resistance are still okay.

𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗺𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝘂𝗻𝘄𝗮𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝗳𝗲𝗲𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗶𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗸𝗲𝘆! ⁣

In our hearts, the transformation of the most profound kind occurs. It is there, in our heart space, where darkness and negative emotions turn into the purest light.
⁣Our hearts hold the most powerful energy of all. Love. And the most unwanted feeling is welcomed there too, because love has the highest frequency of all. Love and self-love can be found even in the darkest of places and can heal everything.

𝗪𝗲 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝗵𝘂𝗴𝗲 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗿𝗮𝗻𝘀𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗺𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻

We are shifting faster than the light some days. Every moon circle will feel like a lifetime in regards to change.

Prepare my love. Prepare to enter a new timeline. A higher one. You know what is done and deeply within you know where you are heading. ⁣

Gorana: I am looking forward to my new life!

“I dream of working as a life coach and just exploring everything in life that I can do!”

Gorana Taraba is one of the first to graduate The Certified Life Coach Experience. Originally from Bosnia, Gorana now lives in Stockholm, Sweden and is more than ready to follow in her life’s true purpose – “I have so many more ideas and projects to do, and I’m going to try to incorporate all in life coaching. All of them are connected to making people feel better and to discover themselves and feel more comfortable. I want to create things that make people happy.” We talk with Gorana today to get to know her and her inspiring journey to take a leap and dive into her inner world.

When in your life, did you start your journey inwards? 

I started going inwards more when I moved from my hometown in Bosnia to Zagreb, Croatia, to study fashion and textile design. I felt quite lonely and lost, so I started reading a lot of books. It was then when I fell in love with Paulo Coelho and his books. 

However, my first breakthrough was when I was 24-25 years old when I started listening to motivational speakers and particularly one from Croatia. She was saying how everything is possible, and we can do all we want to do, which is something I believed as a child. I started exploring more and more. At that point in my life, I felt quite miserable, and I saw that this kind of thinking was helping me. I started listening to her channel, looking for other books of other motivational speakers and that was the start.

How did you start exploring your inner world deeper? Was it with a book, a coach or maybe a course? 

I was going deeper into my soul at that time between 19 and 25 years old and maybe even later. It felt good, but it was limiting as everyone was talking about being positive, but no one gave the recipe for that. I had a contradiction in me. I wanted to believe I can do anything in life, but on the other hand, I felt so limited, and I didn’t know how to overcome these limitations.

When I came to Sweden 4 years ago, I was still struggling with my journey and positive thinking, and I got some anxiety and panic attacks. It was 2-3 years ago, and it has become worse and worse, and that’s how I found Mia. I wanted her to be my personal trainer at the gym. But then I liked her story so much and contacted her, so we started working together, and soon I discovered she does energy healing and different sorts of things. We did only one training, and then we started working a lot on energy healing. Then she told me about her course that was about going deeper into yourself and your soul. I said yes as I didn’t have anything to lose, only to gain. I applied, and it was really mind-blowing.

What is the unique thing that this course has given you in particular?

The biggest thing for the course was that it was so well organised and put together. The weekly topics were amazing. There were some things I had never heard in the spiritual world. Mia has so much love and light inside of her so it’s easy for her to recognise that in another person. She recognised that in me even though I didn’t believe in it in the beginning. That helped me have more faith in myself. 

She has love and acceptance for who you are without pushing you too much; she is just letting you be who you are to accept your own feelings in a nice and loving way. I never felt judged by her and I never felt guilt to do something which allowed even more love and trust from my side towards her and vice versa.

The Zoom meeting every Sunday gave us more connection in the tribe, and I could feel and see the other girls’ experiences. We had sharing partners from which we learned a lot. It’s an overall amazing experience.

What is your greatest lesson after it?

I gained the most from this course that I had been a good girl trying to please everyone and make them happy. I was on the go every time whatever people needed – friends, family, co-workers. So finding out about masculine and feminine energy and that I have to invite more feminine energy into my life, more rest, creativity and more of just accepting that I need a break. Also accepting my inner child and playing with it. I have never heard of those things from other people, and I have been following many spiritual people for a long time. 

What changed for you?

I started doing these practical things in my life, and I can see how this makes me feel more relaxed. I do a lot of meditation, create stuff, I can see situations more clearly, and I am more aware of choosing how to approach them. 

What comes next for you?

I am currently waiting to become a certified life coach and have a Masters in textile and fashion design, so there will be a lot of creativity involved in being a life coach, and I really look forward to that.

Being in this course and working with Mia has helped me accept myself and all of my emotions “good or bad” and then I learned how to understand them, process them and let them go with time, which allowed more love and light into my life. She was the first person to help me do this from a place of love. And then positivity showed up naturally into my life; I didn’t have to force it.


Identify your passion and your life force will be reached!

Now more important than ever!!! Do you struggle with finding your passion and your inner lifeforce? ⁣Especially in these challenging times?

I used to think that I was lucky to have so much life force. It was actually almost always there even if my outer circumstances were really bad. Strangely enough, I loved life a lot, although I was through physical & mental abuse and other tough situations.

𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐈 𝐝𝐢𝐝𝐧’𝐭 𝐮𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐰𝐚𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐈 𝐡𝐚𝐝 𝐭𝐚𝐩𝐩𝐞𝐝 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐨 𝐦𝐲 𝐩𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐥𝐢𝐟𝐞𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐜𝐞 𝐚𝐭 𝐚 𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲 𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐥𝐲 𝐚𝐠𝐞. ⁣MY LIFE-MISSION! That made me survive! ⁣

I started to teach people how to dance when I was 16 years old. Then I became a personal trainer, and by the age of 21, I was coaching other teachers at the university. ⁣

It went on to mentoring, healing, opening space, having retreats, courses, ceremonies and so on to reach the place I am in now. Today I’m helping amazing and brave people become some of the world’s greatest life coaches. I help them find their unique life purpose! 𝐒𝐨 𝐦𝐮𝐜𝐡 𝐩𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭! Makes me LOVE & LIVE FULLY! ⁣

▫️A feeling that nothing is impossible; ⁣
▫️A feeling of contentment;
▫️A feeling of unlimited energy;
▫️A FULL BODY experience.

The more you learn how to recognize this feeling, the more you will understand that you are aligned with your passion, creative lifeforce, and probably your life mission. This is where we want to be as much as possible. WHERE EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE!! ⁣

Work with your fear of success

You are worthy, you are good enough, you are relevant, and you are seen! Most importantly – by you.

Yes, you have areas to work on and develop, and you also do things and have qualities in you that are amazing. It’s time to see everything beautiful inside of you, develop it and own it!

Stop holding yourself back, put your head up high, take that step and do what you genuinely want to do. Be who you truly are and own the fantastic things in your life. Do this for you!

Acknowledge and see each step you take that is different. Each change and development that feels right and good to you. So you can build on your evidence of what you are capable of and your success.

People’s judgements and expectations of you will only impact you if you have the same judgements and expectations of yourself. Then they are giving you a gift of uncovering an area you can heal in you.

You can manage and handle, whatever happens. Stop denying yourself experiences because of what others may do, feel or think, because the only thing that really matters is what YOU do, feel and think.

Below you have some of my tips for transforming fear into success:

  • Identify the qualities in yourself that you value in how you feel, how you process, what you know and who you are;
  • Explore and own the things you do that are of value. That make you successful and create outcomes that you feel good about and that are right for you;
  • Ask for feedback from the people you feel safe with. What do they value in who you are and what you do (this is so you can see yourself through their eyes);
  • Own the feedback, listen to it, feel it and see in you what they are seeing;
  • As you grow in your belief of yourself, ask the people outside of your immediate trusting relationships for more feedback.

Each step you take (if you take it) is a success. Each step you take, take it for you. It is only your emotional attachment that keeps you from freeing yourself of the fear to be, go and do what you know is right for you.

We are all worthy of success.

Success can be in relationships, career, health and every aspect of life.

Yes! You choose. You can get success in all areas of your life by practising and always continuing with your inner work. It is really an everyday work! YOU are a lifetime work!

Allow yourself to grow and step up in your life completely!

I love you!

I adore!

We are in this together!

Much much love!

The different summer

By this time of the year, a lot of us are usually excited about vacation time. To just let go of routines and be. Usually, by now we’re feeling tired of the busy schedule from the spring and just long to exhale and do nothing.

I don’t know about you, but what I am sensing in myself and in many of my clients, is a different sensation inside of our hearts this summer. This spring was nothing like before.

We had a spring filled with fear, a lot of our usual routines and schedules fell apart, and we were locked in our houses with very little social interaction. We didn’t have the time to get “tired” of our usually busy lives. Suddenly, it is summer, and it feels like nothing we have experienced before.

We are in a space of adjustment, even if things are getting back to “normal” on the outside. We are kind of “left” in another space inside.

A sense of feeling lost can appear when what used to be is gone. Our nervous system can have a “reaction” of stress and not really be able to relax. We are called to find calmness, even if we are not exhausted. That can be a huge challenge for many of us. Feeling worthy to relax, even if we are not super tired after the spring term.

Many of us only feel worthy to really relax after complete exhaustion and a lot of “doing”.

A lot of these things can be working on a subconscious level. Now more than ever we are called to go into meditation, find our way to be in nature and probably most important of all – TO HAVE FUN!

So, I hope that these words can give you some clearance in the confusion that might show up in your system. Your soul is doing well. Very well. It is still times of change. Very much so. A lot of us think that this is just the beginning of huge shifts on the whole planet.

I hope you can breathe through the uncomfortable sensations that might arise every now and then. That you will find peace in your mediations. Alignment with your essence in nature and the pleasure in life when you are having loads of fun.

I love you! I adore you!
And I deeply honour you for showing up in your life!

Much love,
Maria (Mia)  

Are you devoted yo your happiness?

We are a tribe. A tribe that vibrates on higher frequencies since we always search to access the most in life. To live and love fully.

This time, I would like to talk about devotion. What are you devoted to in your life?

I used to be devoted to other people’s needs and wishes. Devoted to making everyone else happy so that they would love me. I was also devoted to what the society told me was the truth to live by. I still find myself being devoted to things that really don’t matter. That is why daily self-reflection and meditation is so important to me. So I can feel what really matters.

Am I devoted to my inner happiness? I need to check that daily. Where do I put my devotion today? Is that the most important for me? What do I need to shift?

We are all suffering and feeling pain every now and then. That is part of the human experience as we are growing and outgrowing what is not “right” for us any more.
So by committing and devoting, the start of my day, by going inward and meeting the purest part of yourself, I will also feel where to go. How to choose. How to live.

Devotion for me is having a pure intention of what is the most important thing in my life and do it fully. In different ways. In all the ways during the day. Always devoted to my happiness.

I wish you a beautiful weekend, completely devoted to what is most important for you! Your deepest longing.

I love you. I see you. I feel you.
Always feel welcome to respond in some way. We are in this together.

Much love,
Maria Mia Åström

Are you ready to leave your comfort zone?

Wow. It is really times of change. Can you feel it? It is like my whole soul is thriving out of my old shell, ready for the new. I hear the calling of my soul. I really do. Although the challenging part is that I can’t see or feel the details of the new.

That forces me out of my comfort zone. To my most challenging part of life. Leaving my comfort zone and go into the unknown. For me, that means on a deeper level, that is a calling for releasing all the control. All limiting beliefs. Because it is only then that the new and the highest can take place.

Personally, I am very challenged in my outer world right now. In all areas of my life. I can see how the universe and my higher self is pushing me to my next level of consciousness and way of living. And although this is all about what I am teaching and preaching, I am still terrified. Terrified about the unknown and the new. Although it is exciting and I do have trust. And that is okay. I am ready to move from my comfort zone. I have been prepared for this. And I know you have too.

So this weekend I recommend you to go inward, and fly to a higher perspective and see what your higher self and the universe is trying to tell you. What and where are you called to move? What is done? What is old? The new is calling. Can you hear that?

My beloved tribe, all over the world, we are in this together. Together we are growing. Shifting the frequencies of the world and making this planet, a better place to live and love in.

Thank you for being here with me energetically and reading this.
I love you, and I adore you.

Much love,
Maria Mia Åström
