Hi. I'm Maria Hill.
I am Maria Hill, the founder of the Magic Of Joy, Sensitive Evolution, and author of The Emerging Sensitive: A Guide For Finding Your Place In The World. I am also an artist and healer and I love animals and nature.
I have always been a curious person seeking to understand how the world around me works and why. As a result, I have an eclectic history of working in various fields, including healthcare and information technology.
From a very young age, I kept wondering why if everyone wanted to be happy, no one seemed to be. I started thinking for myself at a young age, trying to understand the world. Much of my education, including my interest in frameworks like Spiral Dynamics and the Soulcentric Wheel Of Development created by Dr. Bill Plotkin, has been driven by my desire to understand the world better so I could be part of creating a happier one. I have found patterns to be the most useful for working constructively with cultural and individual diversity.
I am a synthesist, so I investigate ideas and information to seek understanding and insight. My favorite question is "Why?" and I seek the best, the deepest, and the truest answer I can find.
Having explored for many years, I have discovered that so much of what we do is driven by fear-based ideas and habits that limit what we imagine to be possible. I personally think we need to start a totally new conversation about how we can create a world that fosters joy and all of the goodness that comes with it.
As a result, I have created the Magic Of Joy to help us reimagine life and develop the practices we need to live more joyfully.
It is important to understand that a fear-based world creates structures supporting its view, which means many conflicts, wars, traumas, and obstacles. There is a high degree of siege mentality in the fear-based world.
We need to flip the script and create a world that invites trust, connection, health, and relaxed thriving. That's what the Magic Of Joy aims to do.
I am the founder of Sensitive Evolution, a website for sensitive people, and the author of The Emerging Sensitive A Guide For Finding Your Place In The World. Sensitive Evolution is one of the largest resources for sensitive people on the internet and includes not only a blog and library but also an immersive yearlong transformational program, The Emerging Sensitive Program, based on the frameworks of Spiral Dynamics and the Sourlcentric Wheel of Development created by Dr. Bill Plotkin. This program helps sensitive people get a handle on the different mindsets in the world so that they can develop a more ecological perspective about human life and participate in the cultural shift we are going through.
I am a coach and also a healer as a Reiki Master and a Certified Theta Healer. I practice Transcendental Meditation and have incorporated many of the Ayurveda practices into my life.
In addition, I am an abstract painter. My art website is Infinite Shape. I am a feminist, childless not by choice, and have a lifelong interest in human and animal rights.- all of which influence and are reflected in my work.
I decided to create the Magic of Joy to share what I have learned and create a pathway so people can shift from a fear-based life to a joy-based one. This pathway clears the negative inheritance of the past, rebalances the masculine and feminine energies, provides energy practices for gentle and profound shifts, aligns mind, body, emotions, and energy, and helps you reclaim and express your real self. The result is a transformation that helps you manifest a happier, freer, and joy-based life for yourself and others.
