“There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.”―- Sophia Loren
This is a blog post for anyone who has ever picked up a woman’s magazine to find out what their body can be expected to do when they’re 30 or 40 or 50. With the help of “medical experts,” these magazines will tell you when your metabolism is expected to decrease, when your skin is expected to lose moisture and when your hair is expected to thin.
Talk about creating an affirmation!
This blog post is for those looking for a different kind of affirmation. The kind that says, “Aging is nothing but a story, a long-time belief and expectation that has no foundation except the weight we give it.”
Dr. Christiane Northrup has a great new book out about this very topic. It’s called, “Goddesses Never Age.”
I had one such goddess in last weekend’s workshop. Although Northrup suggests we not reveal our age (A better question, she says when people ask, is “What do you really want to know?), this particular goddess, who was there with her two daughters, told us she was 80. We nearly fell out of our seats. She was every bit as spry of mind and body as the rest of us.
During the workshop, we picked a slip out of a basket of something we would manifest in the next few days. Jane picked “a pink car.”
Yesterday, she sent me this email along with the picture at the top of this post:
“Not one. (pink car) But two! I’m a believer.”
And to conclude my argument that, age is only relevant when it comes to cheese and wine, here’s a beautiful video of nearly 90-year-old Dick Van Dyke who can still dance like he did with Mary Poppins.
