Yep, absolutely. When the principles of the Law of Attraction state that you can be, do or have anything you want, that means anything. There isn’t a special exception for what we like to call “The Aging Process.” By the way, I’m going to propose in this post that we drop that phrase from our vocabulary. I’m also going to propose a radical shifting of what many believe on this subject.
I’ve actually known that decline is not inevitable for a very long time. I’ve been exposed to the idea of an infinite fountain of youth through the writings of many of the great spiritual teachers, although I particularly remember first really “getting this” while listening to the spiritual teachers Abraham, and reading one of the many books by the writer, Catherine Ponder. I remember reading of a woman who decided to stop creating more lines and wrinkles and looked in the mirror each day and lightly touched the lines she wanted to lose, and she did. She not only began to look younger but she maintained the youthful look she created as she “aged.”
Just today, I heard a recent AH seminar discussion of this very issue and it could not have come at a better moment for me. Although I absolutely know it to be true that we don’t have to decline with age and that we can even look younger tomorrow than we looked today, my knowing has been challenged a bit recently and I realize that a shift is in order.
I’ve been spending quite a bit of time lately at an assisted living facility, where my stepfather is in the late stages of Parkinson’s disease. He is a lovely, intelligent, kind man and it has been difficult to see a decline that he never would have wanted to live through. In my sadness, especially when visiting the assisted living location, I’ve found myself noticing more and more and more, the crazy decline of nearly all of the residents there who find themselves with impaired mobility and mental acuity. I do my best to be a “bright shining light” when I go there, smiling at everyone, engaging nearly everyone I come into contact with. I’ve even brought my Golden Retriever, Buckley, using a little swag as I roll past the reception desk, acting as if he’s a trained comfort care dog, when I know at any moment he could get excited and knock someone off of their walker. Luckily, that hasn’t happened and people have even asked for me to bring Buckley back. Thankfully, Buckley gets it and has risen to the occasion.
Despite knowing all that I know, that we do not have to decline with age, and that even calling it “The Aging Process,” presumes an inevitable decline and lessened quality of life, the assisted living environment has been getting to me, even causing me to question what I believe and know.
So, I was so happy to stumble today upon a nice rampage by Abraham in response to someone’s question about reversing the “Aging Process.” The simple answer to the question of whether we can reverse this so-called process, is that we can’t as long as we believe in decline.
What can we do to get on board with this alternative reality that has us in good physical condition throughout our lives, with more energy, a youthful appearance, zest for life, and the ability to enjoy ourselves on this journey?
Step 1: Let’s ditch the term “The Aging Process,” if it means anything more than actually advancing in years on this planet. Challenge the belief that decline is inevitable. There are people in other cultures who are not exposed to this belief in decline and they don’t decline in the way that most in our society do. In fact, women are known to continue to give birth way beyond the “window” that we commonly accept as possible.
Step 2: Connect with Source Energy as often as you can. Refuse to be stuck in the mode of facing reality and refuel yourself by raising your vibration. And, luckily this raising of our vibration part is fairly simple. We accept that where we are right now is fine, that we can go anywhere from here, and we choose the best thoughts we can find whenever we become aware that we could stand to improve our current thoughts.
Step 3: Remember that in your desire to be uplifting to others, it does not mean that you are responsible for making things better for them. That only causes you to deplete your own energy, creating resistance, and not actually being of any help to them as a result. Resistance pinches off our natural well being and creates decline (period).
Step 4: Make a decision, right here, right now, to Allow in what you’ve asked for. Let that mission be your “go to” thought when you find yourself going down the path of resistance. Ask yourself for one valid reason not to allow in what you’ve already asked for (and created in your vibrational reality) by sloppy thinking. If you find, one let me know.
Step 5: Remind yourself often that you are not here to face reality but to create reality. Remember that you are supposed to feel good. Allow yourself to leave other people out of the equation. Don’t feel you have to prove yourself to anyone. Start with something that is fairly easy for you to feel good about rather than the thing that has been driving you crazy. Do more things that you enjoy, find more things to appreciate right now, dream more about where you’re going than focusing upon where you are now. I could go on but I think you know where this should take you. Find more ways to enjoy yourself.
As was put so beautifully in this particular discussion, decide that you are going to live happily ever after, starting now. I can get on board with that, starting now. Now, here’s a happy group; they know how to live and seeing that raises my vibration!
OK. More about growing younger looking, stronger, and more energic. I believe in the possibility but don’t seem to be getting it right.
I’m sorry that I didn’t see this comment until now. Belief in the possibility is the major undertaking here and you’ve got that. I read a book by Catherine Ponder where she discussed a woman standing in front of her mirror each day and touching her wrinkles, signs of agin and having them diminish. Apparently, she continued to maintain that more youthful appearance into what we call old age. Thanks for your comments! Susan
The book ‘Transcend the Aging Process is an interesting book. Too bad it’s out of print. I wish someone would contact her about a reprinting of the book.
I have not heard of that book but sounds like an interesting read. I do remember reading one of Catherine Ponder’s many books, which talked about a woman using the reverse aging process and eliminating lines and signs of aging. Wish I could recall which book it was! The take away is that it can be done! Thanks for your comments. Susan
Thank you for this nice article, it confirmed something that I experienced about a year ago.
I am a 40 yrs old man (I’d rather say 40 years young 🙂
Last year I started noticing a slight decline in my health, like back pain and frequent urinating and receding hair and, most shocking of all, a few deep wrinkles around my eyes and on my forehead (yeah, the vanity!)
So one Sunday morning I stood before my bathroom mirror and had a good look at myself and started touching my face, softly caressing those wrinkles and thinking “poor me. look at those wrinkles, I must start giving my body more time and attention”. Then after I headed to bed, I cuddled under the sheets and like hugged myself and thought “my dear body, I’m sorry I’ve neglected you for so long, your cells must be working hard to repair the damage I caused”.
The next day was a Monday and I got busy again until the next Sunday when I had the time to look again in the mirror and to my surprise I saw that the wrinkles were almost gone, like only one line left out of the 5 lines I saw a week ago. I was like, maybe it’s something I ate, or maybe I was just extra tired last week.
Now, a year later, and looking back, I noticed that the back pain and frequent urinating have disappeared as well, among other things.
So now I started reading more on the subject and found your nice article and thought about sharing my own experience.
I cannot stress enough how powerful love can be, even when targeted towards oneself and one’s body. Never hate yourself or your looks and never regret.
Thanks so much for sharing your experience. It’s a powerful example of self love and how important it is to what we are creating. Many people wouldn’t believe that what you experienced is possible and I’m so glad that you took the time to share it.
Thanks for helping out, superb info.
Glad that the information was helpful!
Wow what a helpful article and comments. People are definitely breaking the “age” barrier.
Look up Ruth Heidrich the 85 year old iron man triathlete who overcame stage four breast cancer foregoing chemo and radiation treatments..
Amazing people like that can inspire as well!
Glad you enjoyed the post! It seems like every day there is a story about someone who is breaking that barrier. They are inspiring and it’s good to have evidence to support our belief that it’s possible.
WOW! Thank you for the article and comments. Susan are you a coach?
I happy that you found the post helpful, Sherry. Yes I am a coach! You can find more info on my website and I’m happy to schedule an exploratory session.
Thank you very much. This is very helpful indeed?👍🙂
My pleasure. I’m glad that you found it helpful.
Hi Susan, What I’m really interested in and have been trying to manifest starting about two months ago is actually being younger. Meaning… I’m a certain age, and I intend to be a younger age. Meaning I expect that in my 3D reality, people will start recognizing that I’m actually in my thirties. That it will show up in writing, on IDs, etc. And I’m struggling a little bit, esp. because I can’t find anyone that’s done this before. But, based on everything we understand about the Law, why can’t it be true? If I can be anything, and every version of me exists in some parallel universe… then why it can’t it be true? Curious what your thoughts are and what I should be thinking to accomplish this.
Hi Kat, That’s a really interesting idea and I’d like to give it some thought. I definitely have seen and read about the phenomenon of “looking’ younger after intending that outcome. Please feel free to pm me on FB.
Hi Susan, Yes, I’m filled with curiosity and wonder in regards to what Kat has mentioned. if everything is all energy and even potential energy on a sub-atomic level, than why cant we communicate that to our bodies thru our cells?? stands to reason that this is all possible. I would have to say that its only because of the fact that we still live in a world where most of the general public unfortunately has not evolve to this possibility thru reasons of “bad” programming from cradle to the present. Because of so many negative influences from people intentionally and unintentionally, directly and indirectly, we allow those influences to direct and control our thoughts repeatedly till it becomes subconscious habitual way of thinking; a sort of collective belief that we confirm to…..and therefore the process of “aging” continues until we began to shift that paradigm.
Perfectly said! Thanks for your comment!
Great article! I was wondering if this would work for someone who isn’t aging but is experiencing signs of aging due to weight fluctuations? The thought of going to a plastic surgeon is scary at an age like that but manifesting a restoration in volume or youth sounds really amazing! Could it be possible?
Hi, I’m sorry that during a website fix your comment just showed up! I do believe that we can affect the so-called signs of aging regardless, even if they are somehow related to weight fluctuations. Thanks for your interest!
