My name is Marita; I have called myself a Soul Mentor ever since the day my Still Small Voice put a name to my gift. I am dedicated to empowering you on your Spiritual Journey and Personal Awakening. My own journey to Inner Knowing began over a decade ago.
At that time I was doing everything that I had always been taught was right; everything that I had been taught would make me happy and fulfilled. I was a wife, a mother and an active member of my church. Despite my dedication to these teachings and these ways of living, I was not as happy as I appeared to be.
I found myself in a place of deep discontentment. I felt trapped; I was wound so tightly that I could not move, I could not breathe and I most certainly could not grow. I knew that something had to give and slowly came to the realization that the something was me. This realization created a domino effect and I found myself questioning everything I had ever been taught. Unable to reconcile my current situation with my newfound perspective, I made the decision to transform my life. My child and I moved out of the stifling environment that had arisen within our home, ending a 9 year marriage. I also walked away from the religion to which I had given so much of myself and gotten so little in return. It was at this point that I took the first steps toward my own Awakening. This is where my true spiritual journey began. I was no longer content with being told what to believe and how to live; I was seeking true happiness, joy and enlightenment. More importantly, I was learning to open myself up to receiving it.
During this time of Awakening in my life, I studied many topics related to healing, wellness and spirituality. From herbs to Shamanism; dream studies to energy healing I studied anything and everything that piqued my interest. As I studied these and many other topics I came to the wonderful realization that there is not one single truth that must be adhered to if we are to have happiness in this life and the next. Instead there are many truths, all of which can lead to insight and enlightenment if we open ourselves up to them.
Of the many topics I studied, stones, crystals and essential oils really struck a chord with me; I began to study and work with these more intently. I found I could listen to what the stones were saying, and the more I worked with essential oils, the more keen my intuitive gifts became. Over the course of several years, I attended various training sessions, conferences and symposiums in order to further develop my skills. After certification, I began offering aromatherapy, Reiki and Raindrop Technique.
In 2008, my inherent healing and increased intuitive abilities really blossomed. I became much more sensitive to the gifts that I possess and was lead to shift my focus from the body to the Soul. As my business began to reflect this, Marita International began to form. After having embarked on my spiritual journey and awakened my own Inner Knowing, I realized that I possessed the unique ability to help others with their Awakening.
I have experienced many life transitions, and I’m sure I’ll experience many more. Amidst these transitions, I have been willing to discard my old ways of thinking in order to make myself open to new ideas. It is this shedding of the old that would ready me to awaken my Inner Knowing; a calm, instinctive understanding of myself and the world around me. It is this knowledge, understanding and experience coupled with inherent spiritual gifts that enables me to help guide you on your path to Inner Knowing. My purpose is not to hand you the answers to all of your questions; if it were that easy, I would just give them to you here and now. My purpose is to teach you how to look within yourself for the answers you seek. By listening to what you are saying and not saying, I can help lead you to the questions that really matter–questions that will initiate your own Awakening. By teaching you to look within for those answers and trust your intuition, I can serve as a Mentor on your path to Inner Knowing.
