Up Is Down

Author’s note:  As I publish this post, things are slowly going back to normal, or the new normal.  Stores are reopening, and the Coronavirus is beginning to level off.  Which is why I wanted to address it one last time.

So, right now the USA is leading the world in the most Coronavirus cases.  (Which may have changed since this writing) “Once again, we come in first!”  Which is what I cynically said to myself.  But then, it hit me.  Why not see it as a win?

Instead of seeing it as a bad thing, as a tragedy, or a disgrace, why not see it for what it really is.  As humanity’s attempt to clear out toxins, not only on a personal, but a global level? As an initiation into their awakening.

If we see the virus as a way to clear things out, then hurray USA!  I don’t think anyone here or around the world could argue that America needs a good cleanse. We may have been the envy of the world at one time, but times have changed.  Or, have they? We have had our fair share of corruption, abuse of power, imbalance of wealth.  We do lead the developed world in gun violence.

Women’s reproductive rights here are eroding.  We have a work ethic that’s literally killing people.  Our citizens are buried in health insurance costs and student loan debt.

We have an alarmingly incestuous relationship between religion and politics.  Religious freedom has infected areas like gay rights, and women’s rights to choose.

Lets face it, we’re still pretty Puritanical.

Our commander-in-chief is a renowned misogynist.  And so is his political opponant, that other guy running for office. And to be fair, they are both just a reflection of the consciousness that has been resident on this planet for a very long time.  These politicians didn’t just appear out of nowhere.  

And neither did this pandemic.

So, the Coronavirus could be called a consciousness cleanse.  It didn’t just appear out of nowhere either.  It’s slowing things down, which was desperately needed, and it’s highlighting issues that need to be addressed. Old issues that have been clogging up the systems in societies and cultures for a very long time.  Economic and social issues.  The imbalances of power especially.

Issues that also involve the heart, mind and soul.

So, bringing this old, stuck energy to the surface to be cleared, to be purged, on a personal as well as a global level…..not such a bad thing.  In fact, why not celebrate it?  Now that’s a radical perspective.

And why not honor and celebrate those who choose to leave the planet via the virus. Rather than seeing them as needless and tragic deaths.  Did you know that if sadness, grief and anger is projected onto those departing, it affects them even on the other side.

Yes, it’s appropriate to grieve losses of those we have been close to in this life.  Absolutely.  But those leaving have their personal reasons for doing so.  Many are not prepared for the new energies infiltrating the planet.  Some are done here for now, and want to move on.  Young and old alike.

There are no accidents or random deaths, ever.  So, it would be so much better for those souls if we could honor not only their lives, but their deaths.


I used to think that the more likes a YouTube video had, the better, the more valuable it is.  But then I watched some of those videos and concluded that they were reaching the masses.  Mass consciousness.  Which is fine, if you’re part of mass consciousness.

Over time I realized that the more specialized you become, the more aware, the more conscious you become, you won’t be attracting crowds.

In fact, you will more likely attract the interest of less people, but people who are highly conscious.  And, in that case, numbers don’t matter.  It’s quality over quantity, baby!

And everyone reading this and relating to these materials gets that.


Most of us in the later stages of embodied enlightenment can attest to the fact that you don’t get nicer with this transformation.  In fact you get much less tolerant of energy feeders and low consciousness.

So if there is at least one person in your life that has accused you of being selfish, congratulations.  That’s a win!  And, if it’s only one or two that have given you the stink eye, or if no one is avoiding you like they owe you money, don’t beat yourself up.

You’ll get there.


People are reprimanded for not taking the Coronavirus seriously, and of course it is serious.  I personally think people are doing their best to handle the pandemic.

But those of us who have awakened don’t fear it the way the people in the collective do.  That’s because we understand its role in the world.  We also understand that we have moved beyond that type of fear.

Which is a good thing. We can then be the calm and balanced voices during this life-altering event.

But to most folks, we will appear careless, and a danger to others, if we are not subscribing to the media’s drama, or are not wearing masks, or are not at least six feet from others at all times.

And I’m not saying these precautions don’t have their place, but we also understand that the nature of these types of events isn’t random.  Each human has their own intent.  There are no innocent victims.

But, here again, we have an up is down.  What appears to be one thing, is another entirely.


So, to help clarify some of the above points, here are a couple of diagrams showing the inverse proportions of stuff:  (I’m bored)

🟢Green arrow=Level of enlightenment 🔴Red arrow=popularity and patience level


🟢GREEN ARROW = consciousness. 🔴RED ARROW = percentage of people willing to stand less than six feet from you after the pandemic is over. (Not including restraining orders)

    Thanks for this message. So many blessings. And I know it is super hard for many. I refuse to feel guilty or like I can’t enjoy where I’m at. Because I have worked fucking hard for the last 45 years to get to this place of peace. So, I’m digging the show. Blissed out on peace. My INTERNAL peace, because that is where it is at for me.

    Once more in synch, Maria, thank you! I woke up this morning thinking about timelines and how everyone on the Planet has been booted to a new one, whether they wanted to be or not, and I ‘saw’ this huge silver lining to what should have been (hah) a very dark cloud. Win-Win, I’d say. Love, B.
    PS The cook book, Recipes for Almond Sisters, sold out immediately because it was never published…

    1. Dear Barbara, interesting about the timelines. And, silver lining, indeed! Re the book….”sold out immediately because it was never published.” Good one. You crack me up!!! 💕💕💕

    I thought this a very insightful summary. Thank you.
    I hope I won’t tread on US toes here as I don’t live in your country. However I was heartened by your reference to your leader and his main election hopeful rival as misogynistic.
    I have seen more than a few spiritual sites celebrating your leader as someone who is a light worker and will lead light workers and make the US a country that will lead the world in the new.
    I keep wondering if I am missing something. I hoped no country would be i a dominating position, which sounds rather like another Empire again. With my energetic read of him I just don’t pick up on a loving, tolerant, balanced, compassionate vibe.. none of the usual ‘fruits of spirit and the divine’. Even if he has been there to someone clean out the dark as many claim, it doesn’t seem to be obvious that is happening so far and he seems to have time.
    I say all this as someone who isn’t partisan. I also don’t know the people blogging these predictions, who could be Just reflecting their own political views.
    I’m glad I don’t have to vote in your election as I dont see anyone in the running who looks new or inspirational. .. nor in my own country either. Actually the female New Zealand leader looks a better leader than any we have.. and I hear people comment on that. I have never heard anyone say they would prefer your current leader though Even though he claims to have support globally, I haven’t seen any evidence of this outside the US- quite the opposite in fact.
    Anyway I comment from a place of being confused and mystified by how often I have seen spiritual blogs seeming him as the great light and solution. I must be really missing something if that is so.
    I also liked the COVID comments too. I have sailed through in a bubble of peace and it really hasn’t been in my mind. I’ve had to really concentrate to not be too careless and offhand when meeting others fears as they are every real to them.

    1. Hi Lyn, interesting about our President being a spiritual leader. Many of The right wing Christian Evangelicals are touting him as the christened one, because he seemingly stood for their ‘Family Values’ rhetoric. Things like pro life (anti-women), homophobia, and xenophobia.

      When his own sexual indiscretions were brought up to them, they compared him to King David in the Bible, who was also flawed but served the greater good or some such horse manure.

      The level of cognitive dissonance is astounding.

      So your instincts about his character are accurate, but sadly, there is A sector of the population that supports his ideas. Or is it that he is a genius in figuring out what ideas will bring him the most support?

      And as we know, sometimes people need a tsunami Such as Trump to help move people out of their complacency. And if that doesn’t do it, maybe a pandemic…..it’s all good. Lol.

      Thanks Lyn, it’s always interesting to hear from People like you from different parts of the world and your particular perspective.

      1. PS. I feel strongly that the key to all is to love ourselves (not in an NPD kind of way) wholeheartedly and unconditionally.
        And then we can LOVE our neighbor.

    2. Hello Lyn–I appreciate your candor. I have often thought in the last few years that if I was ever to travel outside the US that I would wear a button that says something like “I hate our president too.” OR Trump with a big line through it or something…….hahaha Or how about Trump has NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder). hahaha

      Anyway, I recently stumbled across a so called “spiritual” group that LOVES him. I don’t follow many groups, etc in these times as I have felt pretty darn good about my internal guidance. Maria being a main one I always follow and adore!!!! ❤ ❤ But I was so surprised. Sheesh….

      If interested, this is my take on the Cheeto or Agent Orange.
      He is there for a reason, for sure. He is so misogynistic, sexist, racist, etc that he has made it OK for folks to be that way very publicly. It is NOT undercover anymore. There are plenty of humans who are that way but it has been under cover for years and years. So, there has ALWAYS been plenty of racism and hate, just hiding under a PC bushel, eh?

      So now it has come out to the light to be healed. AND we are in the midst of a HUGE healing crisis and it looks fucking ugly. It is at the "it's never going to heal" stage and it is pus filled, disgusting and horrible. AND part of the healing is people rising up. Speaking up.

      I shouldn't be surprised but I am astounded at times at the level of hate and nastiness that is all over. But I see it as good (mostly) because folks are at that stage of "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore." It is hard hard hard to watch.

      And frankly the COVID time is perfect. Now we are all stewing in our juices. AND I believe that many folks will leave this planet. Directly because of COVID or because they are just done. Their soul will know.

      So with the US prez fanning the flames of his insanity and all the hate and lying and disease and selfishness and more with COVID boiling points. I am very curious to see what happens.

      Life is changing as we know it. AND I do think that it is needed.

      Loving us all. Thanks Maria for bringing us together here.

    Dear Maria and Elizabeth, I m grateful your responses. I certainly get the catalyst angle, and he does seem to be almost a charactature representing so many things. I also get that leaders mirror what is in their people ( not all). I was just dumbfounded by the lightworker angle!
    Our leader isn’t anything to write home about either, and we aren’t free of racism, etc, but then no one has suspected out leader of being a lightworker. Nor have we expected to run the free world. I know there are many generous, good and inspiring Americans as well so you may not have to wear that badge Elizabeth as I don’t think we judge everyone by him.
    Am really relieved to hear your responses as we are Alice in Wonderland at the moment and there are lots of Halls of Mirrors of distortions. You can wonder if there is some apparently unlikely scenario that you just don’t see deeply enough into.
    I trust hearing from others who have also been at this a very long time that I can continue tto trust my instincts.

  5. hahaaha the charts! this blog is a true gem! and I do understand about the impact and the people that are drawn to the work we make as we rise in counsciousness and awarennes! it’s funny!
