Biography of Anna Maria
So, you might be thinking to yourself: 'Who is Anna Maria anyway'?
Well, it would appear to be ever more likely that in reality, I am you, as you are me. Division is an illusion, we are all one, and to love one another IS to love ourselves.
In this present physical lifetime, I am overflowing with joy and gratefulness to be a shaman and a healer. I have been blessed with wonderful gifts to help and heal others through energy work. I am also an artist. In addition to being a free thinker, truth seeker, and philosopher, I am a poet, a writer, and a classically trained singer/songwriter, as well as a photographer—I am a lover of beauty, and I find beauty in everything. I am a daughter, a sister, a friend, a lover, and a mother. I consider myself passionate, strong, genuine and caring, and I love to laugh and cry. I hope. I dream.
I look forward to getting to know us all better as we seek to discover ourSELF together.
I invite you to join me on a consciousness expanding, mind bending, paradigm shifting journey in search of truth about who and what we are, about where we come from and why we are here, and about what is really going on in our world and in our multiverse. Early on in my active search for knowledge of the truth, I found it necessary to set aside my presupposed ideas and beliefs about what is, and about what is not, in order to pursue knowledge and understanding of reality in an honest manner. It is as they say: 'The mind is like a parachute; it works better when it's open.' Once I found the courage to set aside my rigid world views, my fears melted away, and I found true freedom—freedom of mind and spirit! Suddenly, a whole new multiverse opened up before me.
For the first 31 years of my life, I was enslaved by a very rigid and narrow religious view of the world and universe, which I now understand is actually a multiverse. As of April of 2011, I have been on an amazing, paradigm-backflips journey in search of knowledge of truth about everything. This active search for knowledge of truth has led me to discover the joy, upliftment, and rejuvenation to be found in freedom of mind and spirit. I am so glad to no longer be a slave to fear.
In February and March of 2012, I spent three weeks in the Amazon Rainforest, a few hours out by bus and boat from Iquitos, Peru with the Ayahuasca Foundation. I was there with Don Enrique, an indigenous Shipibo native shaman/curandero, and with a small handful of other participants in a three week healing retreat, during which we engaged in many different, natural cleansing procedures, diets, etc, as well as nine Ayahuasca ceremonies.
My world, my universe, my multiverse completely, and utterly, changed. Since then, I have continued exploration of consciousness, healing, learning, growth, and massive expansion through further sacred plant spirit medicine ceremony work, prayer, meditation, breath work, and yoga to fully honor perfect alignment of my heart, mind, body, and soul. What an awesome way to catapult forward on the divinely designed path for my life this has been!
My greatest prayer and intention for my life is that I may develop to my fullest potential for good so that I may help, heal, bless, serve, and share love with everyone, everywhere, from all worlds, times, and densities. Oh yes my friends. What a beautiful, magical life this is! I love the quote 'The day I broke up with 'normal' was the first day of my magical life.' Yeah. Really magical! And I wouldn't have it any other way! I am so grateful.
It is my sincere hope and desire that my work may be encouraging and uplifting to you and all others. May you be blessed, and may you find the true joy, peace, love, and light of Great Spirit/Source of All Life, in this life, and forever.
With a mother's love for all creation,
I AM that I AM, and All that I AM is ONE with ALL that I AM, for I AM.
“True religion and spirituality have nothing to do with rules, books, buildings, and other people telling you what to do; they consist, rather, of discovering what you already know, and connecting with who you really are.” A proverb by Anna Maria
'To honestly pursue knowledge of truth, you must set aside presuppositions and follow truth wherever it leads-even if it means going down a rabbit hole you never knew existed.' A proverb by Anna Maria

Insomnia | Early Poems
Blood shot eyes and restless,
I journey through the night flight of imagination.
Thoughts, ideas rush through my brain:
speed of the light of stars.
My spirit flies out my window ever open,
and mingles with mist of wind and salt of sea.
I ride the bare backs of stallions on night clouds
