Hola! I’m Mercedes Maidana
I am a Motivational Speaker, Abundance Coach and Patagonia Surf Ambassador.
I’m here to help you live an abundant life!
By abundant, I mean: happy, joyful, passionate, fulfilled life! Once you fill yourself from the inside out, all areas of your life will be aligned into more abundance:
- You will tap into financial abundance
- Your career will be of joy and creativity
- Your relationships will be loving
- You will have a solid spiritual foundation to live on
I believe that we can live a life beyond our wildest dreams but we just need to know how. Every single dream that I had is my reality here and now. I learned how to apply different manifesting techniques and spiritual principles of Abundance. I am here to share these tools with you!
Let me first tell you a lil’ bit about me:
I help people live their dreams by finding new, bigger ways of thinking and taking action.
I share with English and Spanish speaking women (and some awesome guys) direct ways to connect inside and fulfill themselves from the inside out to manifest their dream life. Today, I am living my dream. But It wasn’t always like that.
This is the story:
I was a city girl from Buenos Aires, a 13 million people city, living the urban life. At age 21 I got my heart broken by a rockstar boyfriend. I entered a dark time in my life and spent 7 months depressed and frozen. A friend invited me to Brazil for a short holiday so I could breathe some fresh air. Little did I know that my life was about to change forever!
Once in Brazil I discovered surfing and I fell in love with the ocean-head over heels. I traveled the world looking for a place I would call home and ended up in Hawaii, where the best waves in the world break along the coast. Once settled in Hawaii, the allure of bigger waves started to pick my interest.
At age 26, five years after having started surfing, I decided I wanted to go for my next big dream: to become one of the best female big wave surfers in the world and to get paid to travel the chasing huge waves.
Not only I wanted to be sponsored, but I knew exactly what company I wanted to get sponsored by: Patagonia. My goal seemed impossible to attain but my passion was so strong that I couldn’t not follow it!
I put into use all the manifesting techniques that I had learned throughout the years, and today I am living my dream!
These are some of the results:
I manifested a sponsorship with the kick ass clothing company Patagonia.
I travel the world surfing big and small waves, whenever I want, wherever I want.
Six years after I started surfing I was nominated at the XXL Big Wave Awards as one of the three best women big wave surfers in the world. Then I got nominated again and again in 2010 and 2011.
I do motivational talks around the world to inspire people to live their own dreams. You can find me in my laptop in Indonesia after a great surf in the middle of nowhere, to the metropolis of Buenos Aires or New York, to tiny towns in Mexico or Chile. I may be in my flip flops and beach hair for weeks, or I may be in stilettos, leather and sequins in the big cities. I can go from backpacking to red carpet in a minute. I love it all, I am all of it combined!
Here are a few more dreams that I manifested:
I am living in my dream home on the beach in what I consider the best place in the world: the North Shore of Oahu. This is my home’s view, no kidding here!
I am married to the most perfect man for me: Gregg. Not only he is a hottie pattotie, but he is is my very best person in the world (and my best friend).
I also live right in front of my favorite surf spot in the world: Sunset Beach. I surf there every time it breaks!
My most recent manifestation? I got my dream Tiffany’s ring just two weeks after I put it out to the Universe!
(But that’s a whole other story!)
I know we can transform our lives and live in abundance, no matter what has happened to us in the past. We can always start fresh, we can create our reality the way we want.
I discovered that we can easily manifest our heart’s desires. At first, I did it the hard way, but now I’m doing it the effortless way. I prefer the latter and this is the approach I share through my blog posts and speaking events.
I manifested my surfing career through sheer willpower, force, pushing and demanding. I made all my dreams come true. I ticked them off my bucket list, one-by-one but in the midst of it, I felt burned out and fatigued. I‘d lost the joy in my life. I even had to face the gates of death (in a surfing accident) before I realized that my approach wasn’t working out.
Now, I use the same tools I used years ago, but my approach is very different. Instead of manifesting my dreams through willpower, I am now manifesting them through joy. I follow the essence of joy from within and take that energy into the world. I now co-create with a Power Greater than myself.
Enjoying the journey and loving the process will get us to our dream lives—because when we love each step along the way, we become our dreams.
I went from a Hell No! to a Hell Yeah! life. Not only I get to surf, travel, enjoy my beautiful home with my love, I can share what I know with others so they can also live their dream life! I teach abundance tools and share spiritual principles, combined with a great deal of taking ACTION, so you can see real results in your life.
Because I know that you can create anything you want. I share through Breakthrough Sessions, giving motivational talks and writing blog posts (and a book that is in the making).
