Inspiration - Integrity - Authenticity - Wisdom ... Add a little laughter and nurturing, and your experience with me could be transforming.
Growing up seeing and talking with spirits was a natural part of my life, and I believe my difficult childhood inspired me to maintain this connection along with my empathic,
sensitive and intuitive nature which has supported me and the many who have crossed my path.
My journey continues to stretch and move me, and in sync with my path, I have been guided to travel extensively overseas to share knowledge, teach and personally continue to learn and grow.
In 2010 I had a near-death experience which changed my life and enhanced my connection to the multi-universe,
and it was then I began channelling the Guardians of the Light. Their guidance and wisdom continue to empower and shed light for me and others for which I'm genuinely grateful.
My soul's purpose is to restore hope into the hearts of many, and I do this by inspiring people ready for transformation through deep healing, spiritual teachings, and psychological insight.
Award-winning author of a personal and spiritual memoir, One Path, Many Lights I'm delighted to contribute as an author for McGill Media and Simple Reminders and writer for Sibyl,
an international spiritual women's magazine, as well as an avid blogger, speaker and workshop presenter. I love to inspire through my stories of vulnerability, experience and wisdom.
I have a gorgeous little dog, cheeky and sweet Maggie, a cross between a poodle and a Maltese, which brings me much love, joy and laughter.
I love my circle of family and friends,
the energy, inspiration and tranquillity of nature, meditation, writing and having a good laugh, and don't tell anyone – Netflix on occasion.
I look forward to connecting soon, with love and gratitude,

One of the most important aspects of community is to ensure we support and care for each other. Below are the three causes close to my heart:
Animal Aid - As an animal lover, I understand how they can, and do, enhance our lives in many wonderful ways.
Our domestic animals need to be cherished and nurtured as part of our family. Find out more here.
Make A Wish Foundation - I had the pleasure of being a volunteer for a period of time.
This organisation is for the benefit of children who have life threatening medical conditions. They grant wishes specifically requested by the child giving hope, strength and a little joy to all those involved.
Family, friends and volunteers all benefit from the smile and delight of the child receiving the gift. I personally feel these beautiful children have an amazing strength and resilience, and teach us so much about the human spirit. Find out more
Scope - For people with a disability.
Personally I have been a volunteer with the intellectually disabled from the age of 16 and worked for a number of years raising funds for Cooinda Hill in Gippsland.
I continue to work with, and feel blessed in the presence of those with disabilities. People with disabilities have so much to share and teach us,
and it was Charlotte my cerebral palsy client, who encouraged me to leave the corporate life, and work in Reiki full time. She kindly said,
"Maria I am your messenger and this is the path you must travel". I listened, and I have never looked back, and will be forever grateful for her sharing this message.
