The Secret of Youthfulness
Is the secret of youthfulness cosmetic surgery, or a good diet and exercise regime, a special "wonder" supplement? Or perhaps the secret is simply having good genes? What if the secret is nothing to do with any of these things, but is instead all in your mind?
Is the secret of youthfulness cosmetic surgery, or a good diet and exercise regime, a special "wonder" supplement? Or perhaps the secret is simply having good genes? What if the secret is nothing to do with any of these things, but is instead all in your mind? You may have read this quote by Goldie Hawn:-"Youthfulness is connected to the ability to see things new for the first time. So if your eyes still look at life with wonder, then you will seem young, even though you may not be chronologically young".
How old is old? How young is young? Why do some people feel young and others old? It's not to do with age, it all boils down to your outlook on life, and how you instinctively perceive things. What is amazing is the number of people who head off to the nearest cosmetic surgeon for a nip here or a tuck there and still do not adjust to their new image. Even though your physical body may look significantly younger, you will only feel youthful when your mind adjusts to a new internal image of yourself.
What is even more amazing is that fact that this internal image is all in your mind, and therefore you have the ability to see yourself as youthful and to feel youthful no matter what shape your body is in. Cosmetic surgery really should work from the inside out, if you see what I mean! It's risk free and it is pain free. All that is required is a commitment to see things from a different angle, to think in a different way. As Goldie Hawn rightly points out, the secret of youthfulness is not based upon how you look; it is dependent on seeing things with wonder, like a child who is experiencing something for the very first time.
You may think that this is all very well for Goldie Hawn to say. She is, after all, a beautiful woman to look at as well. But that outer beauty would not be so beautiful if she did not think in a youthful and beautiful way too. Your mind and body are intrinsically connected and each impacts more greatly on the other than most people realize.
Everything which happens in your life is shaped by how you look at it, by your chosen perspective and expectations. And every thought you have has an impact on your physiology. If you feel light and bright emotionally, your body will reflect this and you will walk with a spring in your step, stand taller, your eyes will sparkle, and so on. The opposite, of course, is also true, if you were to feel down and negative your physiology would reflect this in a downward trend - looking literally down at the mouth, with your shoulders slumping and your footsteps heavy. And your habitual thoughts and expressions tend to become etched upon your face and body for the world to see.
Your thoughts and feelings are shown to the world in your expressions, mannerisms, body posture and so on. At a deeper level, your thoughts and feelings impact on your bodily functioning and can manifest themselves as illness and disease within your body. Every idea, thought and belief you have can has a neuro-chemical consequence. Mental images, through your neural pathways, are able to transport messages to each and every cell in your body.
The secret of youthfulness lies therefore in how you choose to think about yourself and about your day to day experiences of life. You can choose to think in a youthful way and hypnosis downloads can be amazingly efficient in retraining your brain to quickly adjust to youthful patterns of thinking. We can all remember the excitement and enthusiasm of our younger years, and in reality we all long to revert to that carefree joyfulness once again. You really can wind the clock back with the help of hypnosis.
As you revert to thinking in a youthful way, with enthusiasm and curiosity and unbridled exhilaration and passion, this perspective on life will allow you to attract experiences into your life which reflect your outlook and enhance these feelings within yourself. It creates a snowball effect - as you think in a youthful way you attract experiences into your life which allow you to feel youthful and hence you think in an ever more youthful manner and create ever more youthful experiences and feelings. And these thoughts, feelings and experiences are mirrored in your physiology as well - so that your body looks and feels youthful too. The fact is your mind and body are intrinsically linked. What you think you become. You really do create your own reality.
