Browsing, I came across this fabulous quote that sums aging and beliefs systems up for me –
Of all the self-fulfilling prophecies in our culture, the assumption that aging means decline and poor health is probably the deadliest.
Marilyn Ferguson, The Aquarian Conspiracy, 1980
Research has shown that as soon as you think you are middle-age your cells respond and the immediately start to decline. Consider the famous work of Dr Masaru Emoto and his pictures of the effect of thoughts on the molecular structure of water – considering that our bodies are over 70% of water, our thought and beliefs would have the same effect on our bodies.
Consider these (courtesy of Dr Masaru Emoto) – You can read more about these in the Hidden Messages of Water. His later book The True Power of Water: Healing and Discovering Ourselves is life changing
But consider what the effect of thoughts of “Gratitude” has. Think what thoughts of “I am healthy” or “I am vibrant” could have on your cells instead of “I am getting old” or “I am old”
To your new possibility – Sofia
