Think of What You WANT, Not What You Don’t Want

February 19, 2010

I think a key to living a life of joy is to notice our thoughts, especially as we get older. There are so many cultural group-thoughts that are fired at us all day long through the media, other people and our old unexamined beliefs.

In this culture aging is not respected at all and is seen as a downhill path from which there is no escape. Yes, we will get old and die, I’m not arguing with that. What I’m arguing with is the additional piece we’ve added. Now it’s get old, DETERIORATE, and die.

To me that part is unnecessary and can be easily avoided. The trick, according to the Law of Attraction, is to focus on what we DO want and not on what we DON’T want.

In the matter of bones it is entirely clear what the medical emphasis on measuring bones is about. It’s about selling drugs, that don’t help, through fear of the numbers. I can’t tell you how many women call me with their numbers, imagining a catastrophic ending as their bones erode out from under them.

So, it’s a little hard to convince them to turn their backs on the numbers, not to live in fear, and not to push against that negative future. But the real trick, as I said, is to look forward to what we DO WANT.

So how do you want your aging to look? What vision do you have for your future? To have an exciting present we have to have an exciting future to look forward to. When I was 55 and I got sick, I know it was partly because I couldn’t see a way to an exciting future. My second marriage was over and I wasn’t feeling engaged by my work and I couldn’t see anything ahead that was bright and alluring.

Now I have earned my way back to health and I am finally as healthy as I dreamed of being, I am inventing new dreams. Not of finally meeting my soulmate or becoming a millionaire, but of fulfilling my own potential in this lifetime. I have many skills and talents, as do we all, and I want to know when I die that I have used ALL of them to the MAX – and then learned MORE!

So, when I was thinking of what I DO WANT in specifics, I asked my Inner Wisdom to bring me something exciting to do, besides my business and my grandchildren. It brought me this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgfiwVaqNSs  I watched that and I was hooked! Just look at all those powerful older women! I knew immediately that I wanted to go out of this life dancing.

So I found a local group and I went for the third time last night and it was heaven, like coming home. In May I will go for White Belt training and then I will work up through the years ahead to Black Belt. All the women in the video were Black Belts.

So, this is my path, my exciting future. What will yours be? If you are stuck in boring relationships, boring jobs and boring lives then it is time to invent a better future. Start talking with your Inner Being, your connection to Source, and ask for some suggestions. She knows you best, she’s been with you forever and totally loves, accepts and adores you. Ask her for help and then just watch your thoughts during the day. Drop negative thoughts as if they were burning coals and think of your wonderful future instead. That’s the way you can, thought by thought, reinvent yourself.

I’ll keep you posted on my journey to Black Belt because it has everything to do with strong bones and a joyful life.
