A movement from within…


Who manifested & created this blog?

My name is Maria Tjader. My artist name is Maria Love Yoo. Maria is my Swedish first name and Yoo is my Korean surname. (East meets West) Love is where I came from and what connects us all.

Who am I?

I’m a curious, creative and big hearted human being that was adopted from South Korea by my Swedish parents and growing up in a small northern city in Sweden, I felt a bit lost in my teenage years. I was a searcher looking for answers following my heart without questioning myself.

The day I could finally leave school, I didn’t just leave school, I decided to leave Sweden. I thought: “There must be something more then this, this can’t be all the world has to offer me?” So, off I went. I left my family and friends, all by myself. It was a new chapter of my life.

I spread my wings and flew to London to start work experience as a Makeup Artist. As you can imagine I was indulging in the experience. I was 20 years old and doing something I loved – having the opportunity to work with makeup, developing my creative side and being in a vibrant city with so many opportunities was a big experience for me.

I really got the taste of it and what started as a 6 months journey, transformed into my second home, my new home.

After working with makeup for a few years I changed into fashion retail. As a stubborn Capricorn I climbed my mountain and after many years in management I reached my goal – I finally became a Store Manager. In the beginning I was happy but didn’t keep that feeling for very long. I realised that I felt lonely on the top of the mountain and that kind of mountain (the fashion world) didn’t feel right for me anymore.

“I’m the kind of person that believe that you should do something that you love, if you do it for the wrong reasons and you don’t feel right, change.”

I started looking for alternatives and was more and more drawn towards the world of Holistic Living. I tried to make a smooth transition but circumstances in my life pushed me to develop quicker than expected.

The big turn started at the end of 2008 and nearly 12 years later I have now re-trained with various different skills in my backpack.

What is happening now.

I’m constantly reinventing myself, my dreams, practising Meditation and Mindfulness in combination with the continued dedication to learning more about myself and life.

I am a qualified Massage Therapist, Reiki Healer, Life Coach/Corporate Coach and I also offer EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), Matrix Reimprinting, Theta Healing, Sound Healing and Family Constellation, Mindfulness, Sacred Cacao Ceremonies and Women Circle Workshops.

I intend to travel the world, learning and sharing as I go along and helping creating a better world for our children, for the animals and mother earth.

My intention with this blog.

It all started as a movement from within. My inner guide nudging me to do something, to create this blog as an extension of the numerous dairies I wrote as a teenager and young adult. While learning to live my life fully I enjoy sharing anything that’s helped me experiencing a more abundant way of living.

Thank you for connecting with me, whether for a moment or a life time.

  1. Im impressed, I have to say. Really rarely do I come across a blog thats each informative and entertaining, and let me let you know, youve hit the nail on the head. Your weblog is critical; the problem is one thing that not enough men and women are talking intelligently about. Im really content that I stumbled across this in my search for some thing relating to this concern.

    1. Hi Robert! Thank you for taking your time to share your thoughts. It gives me even more inspiration to continue what I’m doing. Lots of love! x x

  2. Dear sister Maria,

    You’re an inspiration to me. Thank you for being you! I look forward to reading your blog and absorbing your love energy!

    Hello Maria,
    I met you today at the Westfield shopping centre and you did a massage, reiki and EFT on me. The things you said captured my interest and what I believe in as I am a person who gives sooo much and am spiritual too. You had a profound affect on me today – a positive aura and I felt I could connect with you as I have had major life changing things happen to me but happiness was the key to my goal to unload the stresses and traumas.

    Thank you for today and keep in touch.
    Take care


    1. Hi Yarlini,
      It was great to meet you! Thanks for coming by and leaving such beautiful words. Hope to see you again soon. In fact I have a few events coming up. Check out this link:


      Perhaps see you in one of them?

      Lots of love!!!

  4. Its like you learn my thoughts! You seem to understand a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I believe that you just can do with some % to pressure the message home a little bit, however other than that, that is great blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be back.

    1. Thank you Przewozy,
      We carry so much knowledge within but sometimes forget. That’s why it can be refreshing when you meet others, read books or receive information from other sources. They mirror back to you a reminder of what you may need to hear at certain times in our lives. I’m happy that you like my blog.

  5. I like your story, you’ve travelled a long way, in all sense of the word, and you probably had tons of great and not so great experiences. I’m glad that you’ve found something in life to explore and to keep you happy.

    Here’s a question. You value love a lot, and have love as your middle name. But that word is used by people to mean many things. So if I heard you, Maria, talking about love, what are you talking about?

  6. Thanks for reading my blog and sharing your thoughts Colin.

    I have indeed travelled far and have experienced a lot already!

    I do value Love a lot!!! Throughout my journey I’ve come so close and yet far at times. It’s a tricky feeling to explain and I think it’s an energy that can’t be justified in explanations. As with all things in life can’t be compared with anyone elses experience of it either. All I can say is…find out for yourself.

    For me love is a sensation in my body that is so strong and powerful words cannot explain…yet it’s calm & peaceful. It’s a guiding force connecting me to myself, life and everything in this Universe. Sometimes it grows and at times feel like it’s fading…beyond time and space I have an inner knowing that it’s always with me, in fact that I am it.

    Love is for me life and what is connecting us to oness. What connect us to reality.

    To paint you a picture of what I see…if there was only darkness….love would be the light that makes everythings come alive!

    …just an idea of part of my experience so far…
