Isn’t it always really difficult to put yourself out there? Not just letting people see the real you, but to actually hear your story, your though process, your weaknesses. I am definitely one of those people who always thought I shared my true self with everyone, and I still believe I do. I am totally my energetic friendly self every time I meet new people, not afraid to show my views or let my voice be heard. But what I didnt realise, is that you never really share you struggles when you do that do you? So here I am.
My name is Maria and I am from Prague, Czech Republic. Just like anyone I have had my ups and downs in life, and I am doing my best to become the best version of myself that I can be every day. I moved to Ireland, Cork with my family when I was 8 years old. We spend 3 days travelling by car in a stormy season which meant our boat was delayed by days and we were having to sleep in the car until it was safe to depart. I dont remember much of this journey as I was very little, but I remember how excited I was. Thinking back now I realize how naive I was, I didnt even thing about the fact I dont know anyone there, let alone the fact that I can’t speak a word of English. But being the excitable child that I was I went to school early and did my best to learn, which I did because I had to. I then moved to UK leaving my mom behind in Ireland to study Psychology at the University of Reading. This meant that my 4 person family was split between 3 countries. Me in the UK, mom in Ireland and my nana & uncle in Czech Republic. As you can imagine not easy seeing your family when you’re all in different countries and from the age of 8 I was always missing someone.
As you can see from my website Im a Hypnotherapist and Reiki Healer, spending my time helping people live happier and more free lives. Because I believe that everyone deserves to live the life of their dreams. I am also a Latin Dancer (Bachata) which is another one of my passions that I actually started with my mom when I was a teenager. We would go on a sunny holiday every summer together when I got older and that year we went to Tunisia. She saw all the people dancing to the music and said ‘We should learn how to do that’. So when we came back to Ireland I searched for dance classes and found Salsa. We have been hooked ever since and still go to Latin Festivals together as we are really close. My other job is an Independent Consultant for Arbonne which is a company with pure, safe, beneficial products for healthy living inside and out. By doing this, I can combine it with my other therapies and not only help people emotionally but also with their body and health. Teaching them about how ingredients in products like chemicals actually effect our skin and inner health, due to the fact that 80% of those chemicals get absorbed into our blood stream through the skin. I get to share an amazing business opportunity with people and help them grow in it, building the life of their dreams or just help them with weight loss, skin problems or dietary/ gut problems.
I recently went to a training event with Arbonne in Birmingham and learned so much about life and inspiration which I cannot wait to share with you all. We are all responsible for our lives and how it turns out. Responsibility is a hard concept to grasp isnt it? Knowing that getting angry is actually our own fault, because even though someone said something or did something nasty, we have allowed them to trigger that emotion in us. The fact that if things arent going the way we want in life, we can actually choose to change our mind frame and the circumstances in our lives.
I once heard this beautiful analogy. In life things go bad, just like when you sail the storms and rough seas steer you off course, but if you get through the storm out the other side you have come out stronger, braver and more able to take on whatever life has to throw at you. Life will never be perfect, bad things will always happen, but without them we wouldn’t be able to appreciate all the wonderful things in life. They would just be normal. So do whatever it is that you need to do to get out of that storm on the other side. If this is something you want help with then please do get in touch. If you trust me I will absolutely change your life. If you wish to do that alone then feel free to share your story so we can all support each other. Because you are not alone and YOU ARE STRONG. You can do anything you set your mind to as PERSEVERE! So lets go out there and show them how it’s done. I am making myself a new promise today, I will no longer let people bring me down, I will not let them diminish my dreams to help people live happier lives and inspire them. From now on, every single time somebody tells me I cannot do something, you know what Im going to tell them? WATCH ME!!!
