There was recently an article in this column regarding the "Series 40" workshops that are being held all through the rest of this year. The workshops will also run until Oct of 2014.
The first workshop was held on Oct 26, 2013 and was given by "Push Girl" Angela Rockwood.
I had an opportunity to speak to Angela and found her to be not only intelligent, but very spiritual and more than knowledgeable about her subject, she is passionate about it.
Terra-What exactly is manifestation?
Angela-Manifestation is an art that we all have the ability to use. We all have the ability to get what we want. I've done this since I was a child. You can manifest positive, or you can manifest negative. For instance, you're seeing an elephant, you draw it, you visual it, you manifest it.
Terra-Put out positive thoughts, you have positive things in your life.
Angela-If you speak about something positively, you can make it happen. If you say something negative out loud, you can also make that happen.
Terra-The power of positive thinking.
Angela-Exactly, that's it. There are two books I highly recommend that have really helped me. "Power of Your Subconscious" and "Think and Grow Rich." I highly recommend both books.
After I was confined to my wheelchair I was I knew I had to use positive thinking and I've done a lot since then. I created "Push Girls" with other women that are in wheelchairs. I have several businesses and it's because of thinking positive, visualize it, draw it and it manifests.
There are things you have to rid you life of. For one instance, say you were called stupid over and over as a child. Later in life the word stupid triggers a headache. It can be that simple. You can change this, you have to acknowledge it. People can reprogram themselves and the word 'stupid' will have no effect on them.
Be happy and grateful for life. I've died and come back five times. Don't be afraid of death. Live life to the fullest. No negative thinking will make your life bliss.
Terra-How will you be using these manifestations in your workshop with actors?
Acting is life, acting IS your life. Know who you are. You sometimes have to dig down and get your demons and use them for your acting. This class will keep them on track. I give people journals, I do a visual board. It helps them to explore themselves, releasing past programing-release it and move forward.
Terra-It was a please to speak with Angela, she has great insight into positive thinking and how it can change your life for the better. It is also a very valuable tool for their acting, directing and producing.
There are many other workshops for the "40 Series" that are coming up, check them here.
