I love to coach and help people uncover their talents and gifts. It’s like getting to live my much loved pastime every day. My favorite hobby for years now is to watch people grow.
My own life experience has taught me that once people pick up their courage and deal with their emotional baggage, the mistaken beliefs they have made about themselves become conscious. Then they are able to find their Real Self – the one they were born to be. The experience with and knowledge of my participation in such profound transformation brings me breathtaking fulfillment.
I also love to teach. Teaching others how to coach is like doing my favorite leisure pursuit – with a cherry on top.
So I am now dedicating my time to training and supporting potential coaches. How I do this is to coach them through YOU University - giving them the transformative experience - and at the same time teach them how to coach so they learn how to do the same with their clients.
Since YOU University is about your uniqueness, I don’t try to make you another version of me. I want you to be the fabulous gift to Planet Earth that you came here to be.
Maia - you've helped give us all a leg up on the "love yourself" graph. Your gift is to show by example. We're all learning by listening to you and your team and now we pay it forward. It's a beautiful system - many thanks. oxox
My Beliefs and Way of Being in the World
About your issues, I suggest: Let’s find a higher perspective or let’s get to the other side of it. Let’s not let it run your life any longer.A Bit of My Story From Victimhood to the Love of My Life
I went from victimhood rooted in childhood sexual abuse to an early unsuccessful marriage – to creating a long lasting, nurturing marriage with my current husband of 24 years. (Married twice? actually three times.) I chose my first husband based on being afraid no one else would want me rather than from seeing whether we were a good match or what I really wanted in a partner. Not everybody has to leave their marriage to have the love of their life but I did.
It took years to see my situation clearly enough so that I could give myself permission to say it was the right thing to have done. It wasn’t that I hadn’t tried hard enough or done enough counseling or changed myself in enough ways. It was that he and I had way too much baggage that we brought along with us and had no possible way to deal with it within the relationship. Neither of us had the tools nor even the awareness that tools existed.
It was many years before I was able to take responsibility – without blaming myself or him – for the failure of the marriage. Instead of blame, I look at both of us now with compassion and love for the unaware teens we were when started a life together.
I chose the second marriage, which lasted 6 months, because he was nice to me. In those 6 months I realized I couldn't give any more years to a relationship that was less then what I wanted.From Underpaid to Running a Company
For many years, I was challenged with jobs that mismatched my talents – low pay and sometimes no job at all.
By refocusing and discovering my talents and following steps to improving my self-esteem, I eventually became Founder and Director of the Mars Venus Institute (John Gray – best selling author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus) creating workshops and trainings for hundreds of professional speakers and therapists.

My theory is that our blocks are there to catch our attention when something needs expanded awareness and transformation. Our job as coaches is to help clients first see that they can change whatever isn’t working in their lives. Then help them figure out how to make those adjustments by teaching them a variety of tools and perspective changes.
Everyone - including me - seems to manifest blocks to their growth. Have you ever noticed that if you don’t seem able or willing to deal with some area of life that’s not working, it tends to “come back” - only bigger? For example, on my life’s path, “relationship with a life’s partner” has been a big way for me to “get” who I am. (I've been in a committed relationship over 70% of my life!)
Back to the Blocks and YOU
Valuing myself enough showed up via 3 marriages. Those blocks to a fulfilling and successful relationship have taught me to trust what I want. Also, that I’m worthy of having what I want and that what I want is the best thing for me. If I get what I want, my needs are fulfilled and I make the largest contribution to the planet because of it.
Your blocks might show up by means of a cluttered environment or in your career never working out. In whatever way blocks show up, we teach a whole bunch of ways to make life work again (or for the first time, for that matter).
If you learn to look at life from certain perspectives, you’ll know what needs to be done and have the tools and support to do it.

From Savina Cavallo, YOU University Coach: Recently I was asked what our coaching clients focus on or "how we help". My response was “We help people with lots of things including getting their writing flowing, improving their relationships, or helping them see that they can have what they want in a relationship, improving their self image, self esteem, and expanding their confidence - and many other things.
Those kinds of major changes occur as a result of understanding the inner spiritual messages in the past events of their life and using the growth opportunity in the current events of their lives. As a result, there is an ongoing uncovering of their Real Self. Now they re-learn to believe it’s possible to dream their dreams and they begin to make them happen.”
This past week, two people have asked me about life coaching.
My father's dogs' veterinarian, who asked me what I do for a living, was one of them. I answered almost by default that I'm an administrative professional....then, I remembered, I’m not doing that anymore. I told him I was now building my life coaching business. Here came the question: and what is life coaching?
I realized I didn’t have a skit or a special line to respond with. I started to explain to the doctor in my own words. Oh, he raved that he has a sister that does that or something similar and she's fabulously successful. So, I realized I had done a good job at explaining myself (and he knew what life coaching was, just didn’t know it was called that).
My friend Vivian, who I went out with yesterday for a drink and good conversation, asked me how having a life coach had improved my life. I thought for a few seconds and I started talking away with Vivian. At that instant, I realized how much my life had changed:
* I had worked at facing and finally healing many issues that haunted me for years;
* How my relationships were changing;
* How much happier and at peace I feel;
* I trust myself so much more that I’m following my dream to be a life coach.
Then, I was surprised at how much Maia, my life coach for the past two plus years, has motivated and influenced me towards growth and self-discovery. I spoke with confidence and naturalness.
I'm very happy to be where I am at in life. I'm growing and accepting life and myself; I see each day as a new learning experience. I am confident I am just where I am supposed to be and this is what I am creating. So, are you curious about what I answered the veterinarian? My role as a life coach is to assist my clients in seeing their truth, help them face and resolve the issues from their present or past that are blocking them from creating and living the life they want. I hold them accountable to their commitments; I mirror back to them what they need to see but may not want to see. I empower them. Having a life coach and being a life coach have made an huge difference in my life.
I’m just the luckiest person in the world or (and I like this idea much better), my plan when I came here to Planet Earth was to have the first part of my life be somewhat hellish and then when it was just exactly the right moment, to run into ways and means to heal from my past. My whole journey led to the development of Emotion-Based Coaching.
A lot of people don’t know this about John Gray (author Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus) but he is a master at understanding emotions and how they work and how to process through them. I was trained by him in this work for years. As a result I became an emotional intelligence “savant“. After years of using this technology and understanding how the process works in me, I can and do train coaches in similar work. Couple that with the universal truths of forgiveness and it’s healing effects; then add on the understanding what quantum physics tied in with spirituality brings and you end up with Emotion-Based Coaching experienced though attendance at YOU University.
Our coaches help clients to heal from their past so they too can continue on their life’s journey towards fulfilling their purpose here on Planet Earth.Heal the Past, Change Beliefs, Inspired Action
The bigger picture of YOU University and all of my programs is that if you heal the past, you will be able to uncover the incorrect beliefs about yourself and life that you carry as a result of unheard and unprocessed feelings. When you do both parts, you find you are a kind of vessel for inspiration and therefore can do inspired action instead of the same old hamster wheel of behaviors which will keep creating pretty much the same life over and over.
As we give these ideas form, we start to see what our program is really about. One particular word or concept that stands out to me is: IMPROVED COMMUNICATION. Using the tools actually promotes this….first, with ourselves, and second, with the world around us. Do you know how many people are out there with severed communication/relationships because of bad learned skills? Another concept that stands out to me is: OWNING OUR FEELINGS. These are so basic for our integral wellbeing and so many of us have walked around living our lives poorly and not knowing why. This program will help so much and so many.

We are living in amazing times. We’ve been watching what appears as the world going to hell in the proverbial hand basket. Everything is changing. Everything is changing rapidly. The environment. The weather. The Internet. How we view the world. More and more of us are realizing that until we take responsibility for our lives, for ourselves and our world, nothing will change for the better. Until we stop viewing ourselves as victims and holding anyone else answerable for the state of our lives, little will change.
In order to take responsibility we have to stop blaming anyone for our problems and the problems of the world. Not blaming someone else does not then mean that it’s your fault – that you are to blame. No. Not blaming frees our us from thoughts of how bad things are. When we become empowered this way, we then become inspired and know how to make the necessary changes.
The urge to grow and change and find out who they really are is growing in more and more people all the time. That’s why you are reading this page right now. You are answering that call from inside yourself. The call at this sometimes startling time on Planet Earth, is for life to be lived authentically and, therefore, joyfully.
With an absence of emotional baggage and false beliefs about yourself, you are free to be who you were meant to be. You are free to attract people and situations into your life that are a positive match to your rediscovered and shiny YOU.
