Discover your Untapped Possibilities

Break the Fences in your Mind

No. 1 of the Break Free from What Holds you Back

Online Event Series

with Maria Mar


Endless Possibilities

They rush by at the speed of light.
Invisible. Inaudible. A flash. Almost a memory.

And they are gone.

I could not see them before.

They were like crazy cars bumping against my choices.
Derailing my desires.

But I neither heard nor saw them,

though they were jamming the pathways of my mind.

There were other forces

in that secluded mindscape.

They sat there, like fences.

Doing nothing but blocking the view.

I did not see those either.

They showed up, however.

When I tried to see the beauty just beyond my reach.

The colors of a landscape

for which my Soul longed so much it hurt.

The crazy cars and the fences

kept my mind racing inside stagnation,

while I drove my will like a madwoman,

trying to get somewhere in a hurry.

My eyes were fixed on the horizon.

But the forces inside pulled me back.

Back to 0. Back to the same old place.

Until I turned my eyes inwards.

Until I Remembered.

I saw the speeding thoughts

racing through my mind,

flashes, remnants of childhood notions.

“So these are the crazy cars!”

So silly.
Full of long-ago thoughts

and buried fears.

I could have laughed, but didn’t.

How could this speeding garbage keep me in a frenzy?

“It has nothing to do with me,” I said.

Then I saw the fences.
They turned my mind into a labyrinth.

So much of what I wanted, what I was,

fenced out by habits.

Old routes I walked with raggedy shoes,

my big toe showing.

Tiny shoes no longer fitting my stature.

Narrow routes

where my habitual discomfort kept me walking.

Once you see them, they can no longer hide.
Once you touch them,

you can let them go.

Once the Inscape is reachable

the landscape can transform.

Walk with me into endless possibilities.

I invite you to enter the mysterious regions of your mind to uncover the “Mind Fences” that may be blocking your sight to the great possibilities life offers you every day. I will be offering a multi-media event with art, audio-visual tools and dialogue. As an artist-shaman, I live my life in a laboratory of transformation to discover the powers, tools and insights that can help you manifest the life your soul desires. Join me in this online event where I will share what I have discovered about the “Fences in Your Mind” and how you can break them down to tap into endless possibilities.

Event information

  • Why am I not manifesting that job?
  • Why can’t I get rid of this condition?
  • What else do I have to do?
  • How long will it take?
  • Nothing I do works!
  • Why am I procrastinating?
  • I keep affirming and shifting, but I keep bumping into
    the same problems.

If you’ve heard yourself saying this more than once, join us in an in-depth exploration to discover the “Fences in your Mind.”

You will find out:

  • What old thoughts, beliefs and emotions are “fenced in”–embedded in your subconscious, working underground to create the same old results or sabotage the results you want.

  • How do your new desires and goals are “fenced out”–blocked from your subconscious, so that you are creating stress in your attempts to manifest while wasting precious energy in an Inner War.

  • What simple things you can do to see and break the
    “Fences in your Mind.”

  • How life gives you all the help you need to break free,
    if you only know how and where to look.

Attract your Soulmate with a Dream Basket

Creating a Venus Dream Basket

It is important for you to know what you bring to a relationship. Whether you already have a beloved, or are using the Law of Attraction to summon your soulmate, the Venus Dream Basket will nurture your self-love, confidence and your beautiful Venus Gifts. It will help you stand strong in your love, attracting or nurturing the love of your life.

A Dream Basket is a powerful shamanic tool for manifestation. It is like hatching something that is inside you, like a dream, wish or talent, into the physical external world. A Dream Basket can be used to attract prosperity, hatch a specific project into fruition, or nurture a relationship or aspect of the self.

The Venus Dream Basket has a double purpose:

  1. To nurture your Venus Gifts, reminding you of what you offer the world.

  2. To nurture your love relationship or attract your soulmate in the matrix of your magnetic Venus Gifts.

The Venus Gifts are:

  1. Love

  2. Harmony

  3. Beauty

  4. Grace

  5. Joy

To hear more about the gifts and leave your unique version of these gifts, visit this blog: Awaken your Venus Gifts.

Here’s how to do your Venus Dream Basket:


  1. Small basket, about 5″ diameter.

  2. 5 beautiful objects that represent each of these gifts (earrings, charms, shells, stones, gems) The objects should have a way of hanging them.

  3. Make a heart with cardboard or clay and paint it beautifully, or use a heart-shaped object, like a stone or bead.

  4. Photo of you and your beloved or a drawing or painting of your ideal beloved.

  5. Copper bell or similar sounding instrument.

  6. String or lace

  7. Scissors

  8. Incense. See below.

  9. Candle


  1. Smudge the basket with patchouli, rose or jasmine incense.

  2. Breathe deeply into your heart, and exhale your loving Essence into your photo.

  3. Do the same with the photo or drawing of your beloved.*

  4. Place the heart in the center of the basket and the two photos at each side.

  5. Meditate on each of the Venus Gifts, holding its symbol.

  6. Once you have your own expression of that gift, name it out loud. Describe it firmly, joyfully and lovingly, naming yourself and your gift. Sound the bell before and after each naming.

    (Sound bell): LOVE

    My gift of love comes wrapped in beautiful oceanic colors. That is me. When you open this gift, a beautiful music comes out. That’s my sweet voice when I speak to you with love. Then this gift touches you, and your skin, your bones, your heart and your soul become soft and vibrate. My warmth flows through you and around you, making home for you. (Sound bell)

  7. Hang the symbol for each Venus Gifts around the basket using the lace or string.

  8. When you are finished creating the basket, sit on a rocking chair or floor and rock it in your lap, like a baby. Sing to it about these beautiful gifts that you have to offer. Sing to it with an inviting, loving, joyful and tempting voice.

  9. Stay with the basket for at least 7 days or at the most a year. You can use the bell to activate it and rock it in the evenings, remembering your beautiful Venus Gifts and filling your heart with those gifts that you have to offer to the world and your beloved.

  10. Contact me and let me know what happened!


* Under no circumstance should you force your love onto another without their consent. If the person you love has not declare his/her love for you, please do not use a photo of that person. Rather draw or paint a photo representing your soulmate. Trust that the universe knows more than you and will bring you something much better!

** This is NOT a family basket. Don’t put your mother, sisters or children in this basket, please!
