This morning I talked with an old friend who is in her 90’s. She was talking about how she was working with her body to heal an issue with rectal prolapse. You could tell by her words and attitude that she was not buying into the idea that this was “age related”. She told me that when she has some pain, she just says, “Darling body, you don’t have to feel that way. You can relax and completely heal.”
I was very pleased to hear her approach. This was in contrast to several years earlier when she was having strange activity with her heart, was scared for her life, and fretting quite a bit. I asked her about that and she said, “I do not pay any attention to my heart now.” I got the sense that her heart may or may not be doing the same weird things, but she no longer frets about it.
She also remarked that she was reversing the aging process. I applauded this. So many people buy into the aging myth. I personally am learning how not to age and how not to die. It is simply a choice and I am interested in doing that. Most of the people I know choose to age and die. Some of them even celebrate it. Different choices for different people.
This afternoon, I was listening to Gary Douglas on Access Consciousness Radio. He was facilitating a woman that was struggling with her misbeliefs about money. He suggested she make this choice: “I am going to learn how to have money”.
I liked that choice. I seems like it could create more possibility than deciding that one cannot have money. This got me to thinking about what else I could choose that I had never chosen before or that I imagined was impossible for me. And this reminded me that three years ago a friend suggested I make of list of 100 things I’d like to have happen before I die. I got the list out and read it.
Five of the items had been realized: two of the books on the list had been published, I had a smart phone, an IR sauna, and a spiritual partner. There were 95 items left to go. The bucket list includes spending time with a chimpanzee or gorilla, being bilingual, giving a house to a family in need, being elected to a public office, and being able to live without food. Some of the items I don’t really care about, but listing 100 things was a challenge. When I did the process, I just kept asking myself, “What else would be fun?”
I recommend you make a similar list for yourself. The power of writing it down, will naturally begin to attract the things and situations you desire. And then maybe pick one to three “impossible” things that you desire and ask:
What would it take for this to happen or for me to have this?
What invention am I choosing to create the lack of this that I am choosing?
What energy, space and consciousness can my body and I be to be this?
And remember a choice is just a choice, not a contract. You can always choose something different.
