Maya the Shaman is a modern-day healer deeply rooted in the ancient traditions of Maharlika (the Philippines).

This rich cultural background has profoundly influenced her healing methods, blending time-honored traditions with contemporary spiritual practices. Maya’s approach to healing is heart-centered, focusing on “HBR”—heart-centered healing that bridges the ancient past with current needs through the art of Remembering. This philosophy underpins her various healing modalities to help clients reconnect with their true essence and unlock their inner wisdom.

One of Maya’s signature modalities is Lemurian Code Healing. This innovative method draws from the ancient wisdom of Lemuria, focusing on activating the codes within individuals that connect them to their higher selves and the universal source of healing.

Please share a bit about yourself and your love of poetry. 
I have had the privilege of authoring numerous collaborative books with Radhaa Publishing House and delved into poetry before embarking on the ‘Poems from the Heart’ project. My passion lies in sharing my literary creations through storytelling, multimedia art, and healing modalities. Embracing my identity as an artist, I refuse to confine my creativity within boundaries. As a poet, writer, author, and energy healer specializing in Shamanic & Soul Energy Healing modalities like Lemurian Code Healing and Infinite Cosmic Records, I find immense satisfaction in my innovative endeavors. Immersing myself in my craft enables me to connect deeply with my purpose, allowing my multidimensional self to shine through various artistic expressions, particularly in the Healing Arts realm. With a heart full of joy, I am delighted to share my poetry with you.

What inspired you to participate in “Poems From The Heart” and share your poetry? 
The inspiration behind my participation in “Poems From The Heart” and sharing my poetry stems from my upbringing in the culturally rich Maharlika (Philippines). In this environment, creativity flourished, and I was captivated by the beautiful expressions of art, particularly through poetic exchanges between individuals at community gatherings. Witnessing the effortless interplay of poetic verses between the masculine and feminine energies, showcased with skill and creativity, left a lasting impact on me growing up. This exchange of words was not just a verbal dance but a showcase of talents, boldness, and pride. Seeing the audience appreciate and resonate with these verses ignited a deep sense of inspiration within me, ultimately driving me to share my poetic expressions and be a part of this artistic legacy we as collectively are creating with Poems from the Heart book.

How do you believe this collective effort will impact readers and fellow poets? 
I believe this collective effort embodied in “Poems from the Heart’’ will deeply impact readers and fellow poets alike. It serves as a vessel for individuals to unearth the hidden treasures in their hearts. Through the art of poetry, we gain insight into the deepest desires, yearnings, hopes, dreams, and emotions that naturally reside within every human heart. Just as we are diverse in our colors and shades, poetry is a medium to paint these expressions with vivid hues, from the darkest to the brightest tones. Poems, like vibrant palettes, craft intricate emotional narratives that speak directly from the heart. When we encounter verses that resonate with our own feelings, a profound connection is forged, stirring our emotions and fostering openness in both hearts and minds. This shared experience not only allows us to comprehend the essence of another’s soul but also prompts introspection into our innermost depths.

When you reflect on your personal growth as a poet, what aspects of your journey are most inspiring and transformative? 
Reflecting on my evolution as a poet, the most inspiring and transformative facets of my journey stem from my profound spiritual odyssey as a Lemurian voyager and a devoted seeker of life’s mysteries. Navigating the intricate and challenging paths of human existence on Earth has been like rowing a boat on dry sands or scaling treacherous mountains in unforgiving storms – all while drawing strength from the resilience I witnessed in my immigrant mother’s struggles and in my own trials. These experiences have led me through dark nights of the soul, where I’ve grappled with inner turmoil and external adversities yet steadfastly clung to the radiant vision of a harmonious cosmic future waiting to be co-created. Embracing the interplay of light and shadow, I’ve delved deep into my multimedia artistry to illuminate desolate spaces and channel my strength, consciousness, and creativity toward ascension and manifestation. Despite the challenges, my unwavering focus remains on radiating love, light, and beauty onto the Earth, forging a sacred realm of my envisaging. Through the creation of beauty and joy in my life’s journey. I’ve transcended past struggles, standing atop the metaphorical mountain summit with a newfound sense of sovereignty and freedom, ready to embrace the boundless possibilities that lie ahead.

Reflecting on your experience with Radhaa Publishing House and its dedication, how has this collaboration influenced your artistic journey? 
Unlike any other publishing house, Radhaa Publishing House has welcomed my creative voice and fostered a profound sense of support in multiple ways towards my self-empowerment. Being a part of this publishing house has instilled a deep sense of fulfillment and appreciation as an author. The unwavering support, generosity, and genuine care extended by the team at Radhaa Publishing House have left me immensely grateful. I thank Radhaa Publishing House for offering me this incredible opportunity with selflessness and boundless love. Thank you, Radhaa Publishing House, for enriching my artistic journey in ways beyond measure.

What do you feel sets your poetry apart and makes it uniquely yours?  Besides prolific poetry, what other activities or interests do you love to pursue in your life? 
The genuine essence of creation that stems directly from my heart sets my poetry apart and makes it truly my own. Drawing inspiration from my visions, deepest desires and yearnings, my poetry reflects my innermost being. By venturing into altered states of consciousness, I unlock portals that unveil unexpressed emotions and thoughts, allowing words to flow effortlessly like mystical wands weaving enchanting poems and complex emotions unsaid. Poetry serves as a silent confidante of the heart, residing in the hidden chambers of our subconscious minds and souls. Engaging in projects such as “Poems from the Heart” is not only creatively fulfilling but also profoundly healing and expansive, as it enables these heartfelt expressions to transcend the confines of pages and resonate with others.

In addition to my passion for poetry, my creative pursuits have previously encompassed diverse interests and activities. Before embracing the roles of writer, author, and poet, I immersed myself in the healing arts and explored various forms of multimedia artistry. From painting, calligraphy, and illustration to commercial window decoration and owning a wearable art gallery in Ashland, Oregon, I have woven an organic expression of my artistic endeavors. Transitioning into storytelling and poetry, writing feels like a natural evolution, seamlessly blending with my artistic background. Crafting poetry is a form of creative expression and a spiritual medium that aims to inspire and stir soul-level activation.

Will you be doing a book signing event, and how do you envision sharing your work and engaging with your audience live?
Engaging with my audience through a book signing event is a delightful experience. Sharing my creative endeavors, particularly my poetic works, is a fundamental aspect of my being. Life is inherently about fostering connections and embracing the dynamism of communal interactions where the exchange of sacred gifts, skills, and talents enriches everyone involved. Each literary offering, especially poetry, represents a part of my soul for others to experience and find solace or inspiration in. Witnessing others immerse themselves in the essence of poetry brings me joy and fulfills a deeper purpose of elevating the human spirit through shared creativity and connection. This act of creation and sharing brings vibrancy and meaning to life’s journey, intertwining our paths with the collective.

Would you like to share a poem with us, and what does it mean to you? 
Sure. My poem is entitled “Poem from My Heart.” It expresses connectivity between my unit heart and this Universe’s cosmic heart.

Poem from My Heart

By: Maya Verzonilla, aka Maya The Shaman

In the realm of rhythm, where life does start
A symphony of existence, titled “Poet from My Heart.”
Let’s journey within, where verses impart
The tale of love, the life-sustaining heart.

In chambers unseen, a biological art
Pumping life’s essence, each beat a fresh start.
Scientific marvel, a work of fine chart
A rhythmic dance, a vital body part–my heart.

Beyond the physical, a spiritual chart
My heart’s whispers echo, a sacred heart
An expression profound, where dreams impart
The canvas of desires, woven in my heart

In 3D Earth’s embrace, where realities start
My heartbeat resonates, a cosmic heart’s beat
Connected dreams, like constellations that chart
Human purpose, from the soul to impart

Harmony in humanity, a universal art
Each heart a note, playing its own part
Love threads the fabric, a binding dart
Uniting souls, a transcendent heart

Gifted my heart with a creative spark
A future contribution, ready to embark
My heart’s desires, as a  guiding mark
A cosmic grid pulsating celestial lark

One breath, one task, in the cosmic arc
My journey unfolds an ethereal remark.
Back to the Creator, the majestic source
Where my heart  beats the divine spark
