There is a growing awareness of our eternal nature and the power of our ability to create our own reality. After decades of practicing a belief system that creates a disempowering and hopeless reality for many older people, this knowledge is transforming our potential futures.
This post is for anyone who has panicked at the site of their first silver strands or laugh lines; has someone in their life who is over 18; or has struggled with their own mortality. That’s right. This post is for everyone who would like to create a wonderful life and to support their loved ones in their process.
You are an eternal being having a physical experience. Anything you do that allows you to feel more at peace helps
to align you with your eternal nature and improves your life as the Law of Attraction presents more experiences to you that match those feelings. This is the foundation of everything in your life from what you are living right this minute to what you will experience in 20 or more years.
Elder: a person who is older or higher in rank than oneself; an influential member of a tribe or community, often a chief or ruler; a superior.
Many cultures have long revered their elders, eager to capitalize on years of living and the wisdom gained from exploring life. But in the west, we have a strong medical model that for decades has dictated the inevitable decline of the human body and mind as the norm. We hustle our aging into nursing homes where they are often over medicated and under loved. And the really sad part is that this is considered by many to be normal.
You can only create a reality for yourself that you believe is possible. You must have a clear vision of yourself and your loved ones as powerful creators in order to be of any real value to anyone.
This post is to share some insights I have explored over the years. I think it is great fun to watch these things evolve and to be part of that process. It’s also important to remember that the cultural shift doesn’t have to be “finished” before anyone can enjoy this higher vibrational state. By just being more focused on what you want and less influenced by the conventional “wisdom,” you will bring about a vibrational shift that will allow you to create whatever reality you wish. Choose carefully the things you give your attention to - this is the key.
dolphins and whales beneath me. Every time I get on the floor to do my practice, I can see myself as strong, limber and fearless as I gaze at the sea and meditate on the calm surf. Whatever comes my way, I know that I am creating some version of this reality. Hurray!!!
These ideas may be meaningful to you and you may understand them with your intellect. However, observe yourself over the coming weeks and days and you may come to realize as I have that you do not actually believe them all yet. A belief is nothing more than a thought you keep thinking. If, for example, you find yourself commiserating with others about your perceived ill-fated humanness, bring awareness and compassion to your perceptions and gently shift them into something that better serves you. With time, you will become solid in your vision and powerful in your ability to create anything you desire. But most of all, have fun with it and don’t take yourself or others too seriously. Enjoy the ride!
As there is more consciousness in the body, its
molecular structure actually becomes less dense. More consciousness means a
lessening of the illusion of materiality. When you become identified more with
the timeless inner body than with the outer body, when presence becomes your
normal mode of consciousness and past and future no longer dominate your
attention, you do not accumulate time anymore in your psyche and in the cells of
the body. The accumulation of time as the psychological burden of past and
future greatly impairs the cells' capacity for self-renewal. So if you inhabit
the inner body, the outer body will grow old at a much slower rate, and even
when it does, your timeless essence will shine through the outer form, and you
will not give the appearance of an old person. Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now

I have been crocheting this year for the first time in years, so when I saw this knitters' basket, I knew it was the right thing. Especially when I saw that it included four beautiful animals to provide the fabric for not only making clothing and blankets but also to provide milk. So this year [...]

The following statement made a powerful impact on me when I first read it: "When faced with the choice between being right or being kind, always choose kind. You can never go wrong." I thought to myself, "Well, of course." But several days later as I was sitting with a situation that inspired strong contrast in me, [...]
