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.
