"In the world we live in today with all of the negative influences around us, whether it be media, talking in a social group, the first thing you do in the morning such as picking up the paper - a negative statement in the headlines, these have already bombarded you in your first few minutes." Maryanne acknowledges keeping positive isn't always easy. "Upon awakening, meditation allows you to have focus to do your affirmations along with your mind and body work. Yoga encompasses all. Healing the body and mind together are the prime objective."
At Florence Dwelling (a spiritual centre located at 143 Locke Street in Hamilton, ON), Maryanne and her partner Terry offer worshops on a variety of energy healing topics, such as Reiki, Crystal Healing, Meditation Classes, Healing Circles, Angel Magic, Psychic Healing, Angel Card Readings (compliments of T.K. Atkinson who appeared on our show a few weeks back) including Spiritual and Positive Affirmations. A variety of products are also available; magic wands, crystals, CD's, and more.
"Workshops we offer," Maryanne explains, "Help people to find that focus; that inner spark, that contact they need with themselves in order to go through that positive affirmation process, to clear away the negative allowing them to move on with their lives with some focus and intent. In making yourselves better, doing things better, you must realize the impact and overall intent of the outcome.
Understanding that not everyone is 100% positive all the time, Maryanne conceives, "There are those who get down on themselves; there are good days and bad days. There are those who like to make others miserable. Using energy to enhance yourself creates your own reality. Positive affirmations on a consistent basis such as, "I am healthier today; I am well" can turn your life around. It also helps rectify the negative, unsavoury experiences around you. It affects everybody. Being who you are naturally helps someone else be who they are."
A number of cases where people have healed themselves from serious illness by searching within and keeping positive conclude miracles happen every day. "When you program your mind, your brain with all its electrochemical balance - the pluses, the minuses, the positives, the negatives, the chemicals that cause cellular structurals (different growths), this will affect the body and how it grows. What happens with the body is directly affected by the mind. By having a positive mind-set you can make yourself happy, healthy and whole." Practise is the key.
"Always remember to maintain a positive attitude about yourself whenever times are tough, when you feel overwhelmed, when you fear you won't succeed, whether you have an illness or down-side on your luck. Come back up from those depths; make yourself more whole or rise above by positive affirmation, laws of attraction and being the change you want to see in this world. Think all those things and consider the facts that I can make my existence, I can make myself better, I can represent myself as to who I am because I am a person who deserves that. The strong point - we have control over ourselves."
It is our responsibility to maintain control in our lives, utilizing positive thinking to safeguard against negativity from outside sources.
