I have known Maryann Candito for over 10 years. I first met her when we were both living in Mill Valley, California. She is a great mixture of intelligence, humor and insight — all rolled into one wonderful package. She is the real deal and lives her life authentically and that was way before the phrase “living authentically” became to be used as frequently as we see the term these days to describe someone who lives their life with joy and is true to themselves. That is Maryann.
She has been on a spiritual path personally and professionally for many years and has quite an extensive background in healing work. Not only has she worked with Deepak Chopra at his Wellness Center in LaJolla, California, but Maryann is also a QSCA Certified Law of Attraction Coach, EFT and Holistic Health Practitioner, Reiki Level I Practitioner and most recently she has become a Women’s Journey Coach.
Maryann’s work with EFT and the Law of Attraction is absolutely incredible and she has had many successes with her work. EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique, which is a modality that is an emotional, needle free version of acupuncture which is based on new discoveries regarding the connection between your body’s subtle energies, your emotions, and your health. EFT has been reported successful in thousands of cases covering a huge range of emotional, health and performance issues. Maryann says that “EFT often works where nothing else will.”
As I sat down with Maryann to discuss her work, I wanted to share with you the essence of who she is as a person but also the value of what she brings to her clients on a daily basis.
Maryann, I understand that there are many universal laws that have been around for quite some time. However, in light of all the changes in the world and the economy — these laws have certainly gained momentum over the past couple of years. Can you give me your definition of the Law of Attraction and how it works?
“The law of attraction is the most powerful universal law. It acts like a boomerang. What thoughts and feelings you project out into the universe, the same vibrational energy of that thought or feeling is brought back to you. For example, if you are a very negative person and you are constantly thinking negative thoughts which includes fears, insecurities, thoughts of lack, etc., you will attract situations, circumstances and people to you that are on the same vibrational wave length. On the other hand, if you are generally a happy, positive person who goes through life with a positive outlook, that will be reflected in your environment. You will experience more happiness, more prosperity and abundance in your life.”
“Your outer environment is a reflection of your inner environment. If you can remember that key point then you get the idea behind law of attraction. It is important to be aware of what you put attention to in your life. By focusing on what you DON’T want in your life is a sure fire way to bring what you don’t want into your life. What you need to do is focus on what you DO want.”
Maryann, I understand you have created a unique bundle with your work using EFT and the Law of Attraction? How do they work together?
“Well usually we have resistance and blocks to achieving our goals and the things we want. EFT is a wonderful tool to release those blocks whether they are old emotional wounds or whether they are limiting beliefs. First I find out what my client wants to get out of their coaching session – what their desires are, and then we start looking into their beliefs system. The next phase would be to determine whether to use EFT by itself or to incorporate the Law of Attraction principles — or a combination of both. Everyone’s individual needs are so different.”
What does EFT entail?
“EFT consists of 3 steps:
- Accepting ourselves while acknowledging the emotion
- Acknowledging the emotion – and isolating that emotion
- Turning it around and releasing that emotion and affirming a better feeling emotion.”
“The big picture is that some people come to me for EFT, some for Law of Attraction and some for both. Incorporating the Law of Attraction works on manifesting your desires.”
What do you want my readers to come away with when they read about you and your work?
“That by using EFT, it speeds up the process of achieving our desires because it releases those old wounds and the limiting beliefs like nothing else I have found. It does it so quickly — sometimes within one session an old wound or an area of resistance is cleared.”
Lets say the client is cleared after receiving treatments from you. How often do they need to come back?
“It depends on the client and what they are working on. I prefer to have a game plan.”
What’s the game plan?
“The game plan is specific to the clients needs. It could be for just one thing — like attracting their soul mate, it could be about attracting more money, creating and attracting a different career and sometimes it’s the journey of discovering themselves again and finding their true purpose in life.”
I understand you have something called The Woman’s Journey and that you are writing a book on that very same topic. Can you elaborate on that a little bit?
“So many women lose themselves during life, marriage, motherhood, etc. After my divorce I found myself lost and with no direction and asking myself “Now what?” That’s when I began the work of self-discovery and healing, and during this journey I found out many things about myself and the Journey of Women. So many women experienced what I did and how old emotional wounds hold us back. First we have to heal these wounds before we can really move forward. The Law of Attraction is a powerful universal law that is in action whether we realize it or not. We are the artist of our lives — the key to living fully is to live it as authentically as possible.”
“Yes it’s true — I am currently working on a book project about the Woman’s Journey which is basically a humorous and touching look at being a woman.”
After three years of healing Maryann is pleased to announce the Woman’s Journey program to women who want to re-discover themselves and create the life they want.
