I’D LIKE TO KNOW YOU BETTER, YOUR BACKGROUND, AND WHY YOU DO THIS TYPE OF WORK. CAN YOU PLEASE SHARE AS MUCH AS YOU CAN?
I was born and raised in the Maharlika (called the Philippines) and came to the US in my late teens with my mother and siblings after losing my father, who worked for the US Army as an engineer. My mother held many degrees, which helped us get into the US because of her higher education. When I arrived in the US as a young woman, I learned the language as fluently as possible. Not perfect, but I tried, so I went to college to pursue a degree in Interior Design at Canada College in California. I spent time near San Francisco’s Bay Area to get my wheels rolling to understand how to relate to my new environment. I got married to a caucasian musician practicing yoga and had kids. It did not take time; through hard work, persistence, and determination, I succeeded in the multiple Art forms I had developed. I moved to Ashland, Oregon, and continued my artistic skills. I owned my wearable art boutique/gallery of wearable arts called Iris Blossom, located in front of the Shakespeare Festival Theater. By the grace of the great Universe, my hard work paid off. I was able to experience success from the hand-painted wearable Art clothing and jewelry designs I created. One thing that stood out, every piece of my creation was infused with my HEALING LOVE.
I always think in terms of ENERGY when I create. It was fun to work with the tourists that came yearly from around the US and worldwide to visit this town’s well-known Shakespeare festival. But before the crash occurred in 2008, guidance came to me that I was to move to the East Coast. So, I sold my house and store, bought land in the Carolinas’ and built my home on top of the mountains 14 years ago. I am currently located in the beautiful smoky ridges of the Appalachian Mountains, considered the Gem of the County. This is where my healing work and writing began.
Being alone in the mountains, I often traveled from North Carolina to Los Angeles to visit my daughter and her healing house in the Hollywood Hills. My daughter had tapped into our lineage of Shamanism and had her Healing practice and Academy. I got involved with that. My Shamanic lineage activated within me at this time, and with much training and certifications in other healing modalities, I was soon in business. The Healing Arts grew wings in me, and it became my passion. It was only natural that I birthed my original healing modalities: Lemurian Code Healing™ and Infinite Cosmic Records™.
Being amid many creatives in Hollywood, I soon worked with Directors, Producers, Screenwriters, and Hollywood lawyers who became my clients in LA.
When my daughter visited me at my Appalachian home, she and I named my mountain – Crystal Mountain because of the huge crystal quartz. Quartz Crystals amplify the healing work I do. I work with a few locals, but most of my clients come from around the US and internationally, as my sessions are available on phone or zoom. Before Covid hit, I had clients come from Australia, Asia, and Europe to do an intensive weekend with me. Not only did they clear lifetimes of trauma, but they also enjoyed visiting Asheville, the food, the hiking, the magic of these Appalachian Mountains, and they were grateful they came. It’s been a lot of fun for my clients who travel to see me, but since covid, I now only do long distant healing.
YOU MENTIONED THAT YOU HAVE SHAMAN-HEALERS IN YOUR FAMILY. CAN YOU SHARE YOUR STORY WITH US?
After all these years of establishing myself, I was at a place where my lineage could finally be appreciated and come through. Remembering my lineage and ancestors from the ancient land of MU, the Pacific’s lost continent, also referred to as Lemuria, and a remnant of that landmass is Maharlika, known as the Philippines. So many nurturers and healers come from this land, such as nurses, caregivers, and service-oriented people, because it was once the heart of Lemuria.
I come from a long lineage of Herbalists, Healers, and Shamans. My grandfather, Rufino Verzonilla, was an herbalist/pharmacist, my grandmother Arsenia Villamarzo was an incredible natural care-loving-giver matriarch, and my Lemurian great-great Grandfather Don Pedro, a mystic time-traveler Shaman. Don Pedro has guided me in creating my Healing Arts into modalities. He speaks through me during my channeling. I would close my eyes and ask my ancestor a question, and Don Pedro would reply. Other times, he comes to me, letting me know that there’s a message he wants to deliver by simply knocking on my walls. To know more about this indigenous mystical being, “Don Pedro,” you can visit my writing in this collaborative book series, “Awakening Starseed: Shattering Illusions Vol. 1, Chapter 2 entitled “The Knock.” — Curated by Radhaa Nilia of Radhaa Publishing House.
YOU HAVE COME A LONG WAY, FROM THE PHILIPPINES TO SAN FRANCISCO, OREGON, AND NOW IN THE WOODS OF NORTH CAROLINA. WHAT KEPT YOU INSPIRED IN A PLACE LIKE THIS?
Living in the Appalachian mountains has deepened my healing work. As a Shaman, I do grid work, and there are many land trauma imprints that I’ve been allowed to clear. The Appalachians are part of the “Trail of Tears.” I spent a decade clearing these lands of the great grief and loss of the native American Indians trapped in these mountains. As I worked with our Earth Mother and her crystals – being her antennas to the world and beyond, I also realized that I was brought by fate here to remember and experience my past lives in these mountains. I started to see visions of my past Cherokee Native American Indian self surface in one lifetime as a child with my parents in the deep valley of the mountains hiding from persecution in these lands during the “Trail of Tears” massacre of the Indians. I would see hundreds of Cherokee Indians suddenly peek out of the giant trees in my forested backyard to remind me why I was here. These were the beginning of how Don Pedro taught me the remembering and healing through the ‘Infinite Cosmic Records’ modality I created. He taught me how I can access my past lives and help my clients remember theirs to resolve traumatic issues that hold them down in the wheel of karma.
I am currently writing a book on INFINITE COSMIC RECORDS that would reveal a part of you that still lives within you that your subconscious mind could not let go of, both good experiences and bad ones. Remembering the traumatic past can bring more pain, but it’s only to be released. After the release, there is a profound feeling of relief. That’s what my clients tell me. The layers of one’s subconscious get peeled off one by one, session by session, but never in a harmful way. This work is very gentle but powerful and yet safe. Each session takes the client to the deepest layer that they can handle. It is an opportunity to clear so much karmic residue, baggage, trauma, and beliefs that no longer serve an evolving being. We work through many layers of lifetimes, lineage issues, and timelines. That’s why it’s called Infinite Cosmic Records.
Exploring the deepest aspects of themselves is unique to each person, and it’s a soul journey. My guide, Don Pedro, downloaded cosmic information on using the Infinite Cosmic Records method on my Shamanic journey with my clients to explore their deepest aspects in a safe, sacred space while integrating and transmuting what is taking place during each session. I find myself also being called upon to work with therapists, hypnotists, or psychotherapists to deepen their experience and knowledge through my method. I am open to working with anyone ready for this kind of healing and self-discovery.
Some of my more experienced clients in energy work have described Infinite Cosmic Records as a hybrid experience of Past Life Regression, Akashic Records, Shadow Work, Dolores Cannon QHHT, Lineage work, and more. As one goes into their records with me, we access multiple timelines, a cosmic time-space dimension that my client can easily journey into. I guide them through walking into the doorways of their past, holding sacred space for them to remember, heal and transmute what no longer aligns with their soul growth and evolution. This process clarifies a present lifetime connected to one’s unresolved past or present issues and traumas. On my website, the introduction page has a Tagalog Proverb.
“Ang hindi marunong lumingon sa pinanggalingan ay hindi makakarating sa paroroonan.” means “If you never seek to understand your ancient past or where you came from, you will never be able to reach your divine destiny.”
Have you ever noticed how some things seem to loop in one’s life repeatedly? It’s like they can’t get off a merry-go-round. The more they try to move forward, the harder it gets. Often, certain issues are deeply stuck and have grown deep roots, making it challenging to clear them out, so the cycle goes on in a repeat mode, like a broken record. There’s no stopping it unless we consciously interrupt it. That’s what I am here to do. I find these deep patterns and help interrupt them, make them conscious and uproot them right out of the discombobulated energy system of my clients. It is why clients pursue me as a sacred guide and a sacred witness to their Shamanic journey. It is an important journey to experience.
WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT YOUR MODALITY LEMURIAN CODE HEALING & INFINITE COSMIC RECORDS?
“Maya, for me, is a channel that has been given to us by source as a living example of our ancestral medicine and its connection with all its variants. She is a Divine Feminine, Shaman, and Medicine Woman. I have a lot of respect and gratitude for her services, her example, and her dedication. Her essence speaks louder than her words, as all being directed by the divine presence. I recommend the experience 100%, and I feel grateful. For me, infinite Cosmic Records is a journey towards infinity that lives within each one of us.” – Yarimar Valle Andújar
“Maya is a knowledgeable healer. You’ll feel safely guided while exploring the inner caverns of your Soul’s guidance. You’ll be in great hands. What stood out the most was her vast array of experience and techniques. She has so many unique and varied tools in her magic toolbox. Her confidence and grace was commendable, she’s a gifted healer, a revered Shaman.” – Lori Roddey
“Maya the Shaman is an excellent guide. I felt completely held and safe within the portal. I was able to let go and see and experience what was taking place on a very real and visceral level and trusted myself and trusted what I was observing and seeing with my third eye during the Infinite Cosmic Records session. I absolutely and highly recommend booking a session straight away to anyone wanting to gain clarity or healing of a particular experience or past life’s timeline. This experience has changed me and given me confidence in myself beyond what I can say with mere words. I am forever grateful to Maya.” – Blossom Rountree
“There are times where your intuition nudges you to say no or yes, and whenever I talk to Maya, it’s like it’s screaming Yes. I think it’s because there is this truth, and she is this beautiful channel for this sacred knowledge to come through from and heal throughout. Like that feeling you get when you have felt something before, so passionately and for so long, but had never heard anyone else talk about it, and then hearing someone describe those exact feelings, is what it’s like talking to Maya, I can almost feel her letting the words come that she feels need to come with a sense of divine truth and cosmic integrity as if my spirit guides were auditing her every word. Feeling very thankful for Maya at the end of it all as always and very light literally.” – Alex Sucala
It takes sincerity in allowing oneself to be real to open up in taking this journey into the Infinite Cosmic Records. Because whatever it takes for anyone to move forward in life, the great Universe will provide exactly what you need to know or see in your records. Whether that be lineage cycle repeats, energetic divorce, past life karmic loops, or even vow-oaths-contracts that have their due time and must be cleared. And the most important part is the lesson learned. While others refuse that “there are no lessons to be learned,” I strongly feel that the “Soul has to learn the lesson to evolve, which will allow them to step off the karmic wheel.” In summary, the records will lead to another life where there is unfinished business, so we go in and complete the karmic hold-ups. Other times, the Infinite Cosmic Records take you on a magical or galactic journey – a “boon from the Universe is a cosmic gift” to release one from the massive trauma or past lives they cannot undo.
Another aspect of the Infinite Cosmic Records method looks like a Shamanic Ayahuasca journey with no side effects. Yet, purging is a part of it, especially for those whose dark energies have been manipulated, which I see as a “blanket of darkness.” But it’s nothing to be afraid of. It needs to be removed or purged out of one’s system. These dark energies are trapped in one’s being, and the body no longer can contain these unwanted energies as more light is incoming. So the body rejects these old energies and pulls them right up to the surface to be cleared. The purging aspect can occur during a session or afterward, and this goes with any deep healing when it’s done right. As more light enters, more of the darkness must leave. “Imagine you’re in total darkness, and you have a tool in your hand, a flashlight! You need to turn it on and point it at an area you need to see in your path! It’s as simple as that.
Those who have deepened their aspirations to rediscover their inner calling in life, including their Soul purpose, you can access your Soul Blueprint through the Infinite Cosmic Records. There are many clearing levels when you’re in the records. It is an individual Shamanic journey that I take my clients on seriously. Not everyone has the same experience when going into their records. I love this modality, and I truly enjoy journeying with my clients. I’m right with them, feeling what they are feeling, seeing what they are seeing. And guiding them when they feel lost. It’s a profound exploration of the self, the Soul, leading to powerful integration. But, we must first acknowledge what was to move forward into what is.
HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH OBSTACLES?
Like everyone, I’ve had extreme struggles and obstacles along the way. But I never give up. My spirit remained centered and guided by my Spiritual Ancestors and ascended Master despite my struggles. Having a spiritual practice and connection to the Divine has made all the difference in my life. Even though my immediate family, my mother, father, sister, and brother, have passed away under tragic circumstances, and I am the only remaining one in my immediate tribe, I look forward to the future. As the only remaining elder, I am so determined to share these Ancient Lemurian gifts at this time. Not only am I doing sessions, but I am also teaching and certifying “Lemurian Code Healing” and “Infinite Cosmic Records” as well. There is great integrity in the training process. It’s not overnight, and it’s a very sacred process where I take my students under my wings. Only students who have trained with me and are certified are qualified to offer this work as a practitioner. I enjoy teaching, and I love watching my students heal and flourish. I wish that this world and its humans heal at the deepest levels. It is my wish for humanity.
“Trauma has kept people bound in cycles and situations that perpetuate pain. Clearing trauma is the key to unlocking these cycles of pain and suffering. Trauma clearing, individually and collectively, is the only way to real and lasting change towards healing and sovereignty.” – Maya the Shaman.
If anyone would like to take on Infinite Cosmic Records mentorship with me, you should know that my mentorship is very personable. This work is not fast food, and as long as I can, I want to work individually with my students. The student is also getting so much of their clearing and healing as they learn and grow into the training. It is sacred work, and this is the way of the Lemurian Shaman.
HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH TRAGEDY ENCOUNTERED IN YOUR LIFE AND BUSINESS?
Though there has been much tragedy in my life, loss, struggles, and at times darkness has crossed my path, I had to consistently find my way into the light. It was my only trajectory to follow the LIGHT path, which led me to this beautiful work I do today. By being of service to others and my community, I am also blessed. “The Universe has looked after me. But that is because I also work hand in hand with the Universe, which we must all remember. To work with the Earth, work with the elemental forces of nature, and be most grateful in serving the Divine.” We are the keepers of this Earth, and we are the ones we have been waiting for.
