Aging gracefully is more than a spiritual experience, it is a way of life. If you want to turn back the hands of time, these five suggestions will help you remove the ravages of time not only from your face, body, and health but you will feel more vibrant, happy, youthful and alive!
Men before you leave this page thinking this isn’t for you, think again. Men need to take care of themselves inside and out too. Men more than women are notorious for not taking care of themselves. Graceful aging is for everyone, no matter how old you are.
This October, I will turn 62. That’s right, in less than two months I will celebrate and I mean celebrate my sixty-second birthday. I don’t feel old; I feel eighteen inside. When other people tell me they are old, I tell them they can’t possibly be because they are younger than me, and I am not OLD!
These photos were just taken, by Timothi Jane Graham in Pasadena California, August 21st, 2016. None are airbrushed, or altered in any way. Nor have I had facial surgery, lipo, botox or any other such treatment.
No matter how old you are right now, aging is inevitable. How you live your life contributes to the way you look in your Golden Years.
Why should you care? Looking and feeling youthful, happy and vibrant is cause for celebration. Life is so much easier when you are happy, and feeling good. 40% of how you feel is up to you and what you do. When you take care of your soul, you begin to turn back the years. Your face softens, you radiate love from the core of your being.
I live alone, in the hot, dry desert of California. I have experienced lots of challenges and strife. I have had trauma, suffering and pain
both physical and emotional. Those issues no longer define me. I have overcome the past.
I am outside every single day, walking, dancing and playing in the desert sun. I go to the beach regularly, and I don’t take drugs, medicines or any hormones to soften the ravages of time. It is what I do for my soul that keeps me young, ageless and timeless.
For years, I was on such a tight budget I couldn’t afford expensive face creams or products to keep my face in tip top shape. Following are my recommendations for looking and staying youthful, beautiful and radiant well beyond your seventies and eighties whether you are alone, married or polyamorous and no matter your budget. Taking care of your body temple is a sacred act and daily practice.
3. Treat your body temple as your church. Would you defame, critique or destroy a church? Of course not. Constant self-criticism causes disease. Set healthy boundaries and respect yourself. Take care to get enough sleep, good food and nurture your soul daily. Drink plenty of water, avoid those substances that you know don’t serve your highest good. Let food be thy medicine.
4. Your home is your sanctuary, keep it clean, orderly and free of arguments. Arguing in your home causes negativity to stick to soft furnishings. You lay your head on a pillow after an argument with your spouse, and you are sleeping on a pile of negativity. If you have disagreements, do your best to do your discussing outside of your home and especially your bedroom.
5. Know that The Universe and God always have your back. You are always supported by the Universe. Everything you need is always given to you when you trust.
Worry is a useless emotion, one I know quite well. Worry causes stress and ages you. Trust and faith will help you overcome worry. Remind yourself of this fact by repeating the following statement(s) upon rising and right before sleep. Meditating helps you stay connected and reminded of your Divine nature. I have included my video for you to help you get started. All it takes is seventeen minutes each day to feel loved and open to receive love. If you have difficulty with any of these, contact me for a private session to get connected and clear.
Once we connect to our personal Divinity, we are never alone.
