Have you lost the luster in your hair, the sparkle in your eyes and the verve in your step? Do you look older than you think you should? Are you overwhelmed by work, family, obligations and all you want is a permanent vacation?
Is your mind too tired to think? Is your body too soft? Is your attitude dim?
These are all things I was reminded of when doing a book signing the other day. I hear these very same complaints from CEOs, entrepreneurs, people wanting to change jobs or have a relationship, and clients wanting to reclaim their health. It is this very topic that is the fuel for the pharmaceutical and beauty industry and their push to get you to take the latest medicine that will make you look and feel younger.
In the last 100+ years we were using our bodies and so our bodies became used, aged and broken down. Now that we are in the age of the mind we are seeing more mental fatigue and loss of capability.
This is a natural progression; as we use our brains more, the more we are in need of building brain strength. Just like a muscle that has been used very little, our brains need regular workouts to sustain all the new and unique innovations that are coming at us like the speed of light.
Neurologists and science has confirmed that our brains are in need of energy.
Energy medicine knows that the brain is the pharmacy of the entire physical body. The brain is our saving grace and once we start treating it like a saving grace, then we are beginning to have more of our own power and the right medicine just for our own ailments.
Our glow is lost due to the brain’s intake of external plastic stimulation such as TV, computer games, smart phones, etc. Now don’t get me wrong – I write on my laptop and I love my iPhone. But there is one thing I do that you should start doing right now. That one thing is so easy that you’ll say nothing can be that easy and likely go back to your computer or the TV.
Yep, regular meditation is the key to the brain having youth and the body getting its glow back.
I’ve been using meditation every day for the past 20 years and you will see that pictures of me today are nearly the same as pictures from a long while ago. That’s because daily meditation’s benefits can change your entire endocrine system, hormone secretion, and neurotransmitter functionality. These all relate to the easing and calming of the system which is healing and is the best anti-aging balm on the market.
When your inner organs and systems function youthfully, your outer body demonstrates that in glowing skin, clear eyes, ease of movement and clear thinking!
