If you can grasp that being free of illness and disease is not some distant dream and is something that you as a real human being can enjoy even as biological age accrues, then you have found a cornerstone for healthy ageing.
No one has the unshakable blueprint for long-term pristine health, but of the few things I understand, every person is different and every life is different.
The variables of, luck/fate/destiny, whichever way you want to look at it, does play some role and if you have a good parent gene pool you have a head start in a longevity game.
I would like to believe that among the genetic inheritance lotto and environmental values that surround a person, by giving a healthy mindset some attention, many more people would have the opportunity to know better health well into their older ages.
An observation of mine is that a lot of people focus far too much on sickness.
To which I can understand to a small extent. as the fact of being sick and infirmed sucks, yet too much of a focus on sickness seems to pave a highway with which sickness gains access.
I would be fairly sure that there are people in your life that wear illness, and tragedy as some form of a badge of honour.
To counter this negative trait of this type of person, with tales of people who have been sickness-free for long periods, seems to invoke some sort of jealousy or incredibility on your story of health and well being as a consistent trait.
This could be because many people accept getting sick as a “healthy” norm and by mentioning such a thing as a constant attitude to feeling well is seen as making others feel bad.
How Does Healthy mindset thinking work?
In my observation and practice: Just stop expecting to get sick. If that sounds too simplistic, just give it a go.
Remember you are on the battlefield that big pharma’s endless TV advertisements rain down on, the fear-fest of seasonal changes and coupled with the sickness-is-the-norm expectations of those around you, you will find a self-sovereign style of thinking is harder than you can imagine.
Intention is a powerful tool, what we intend and what is the outcome, is sometimes set in a grey area as opposed to black and white, yet there will be real outcomes to deal with that have manifested in our lives.
I strongly believe and practice the mindset of not to get sick.
I know for some the mention of “energetically” combating the societal meme of “I’m getting sick,” along with other rejections of fear-based thinking is in the land of WOO WOOO, yet all too often this belief is the difference between leading a life on your terms or falling foul of sickness thinking.
It is well documented that thought and emotions do not just flash through our bodies without chemical reactions.
If you experience almost any strong emotion, neuropeptides cascade into your bloodstream causing your thoughts/ emotions to be transmitted all through your body.
This is established science in many fields of human behaviour, and human potential speakers like Tony Robins etc use this process of chemical anchoring so it shouldn’t be a stretch to imagine that expecting to get sick might prime our bodies to get sick … and the reverse … to claim and hold the intention that expecting to be well, works to advantage of sending the right chemical cocktails into our system to keep our bodies in good health.
Whereas the things I believe and what I have observed, are by no means couched in “scientific research”, there is enough observable worthwhile results to warrant the thinking of positive thoughts, as opposed to the observance and acceptance of the fear-based dialogue of corporate marketing.
This establishing of a healthy mindset will be of immense benefit to many who read or hear these words.
By rejecting a fear-based sickness driven dialogue that pervades our society on all levels, will lead to the ability to be able to recognize the herd mindset and spot the carrot or whip techniques that industry and the “authorities” use on you.
Make no mistake, the prevailing memes that seek to position a third party “authoritative source” as the only believable option for choices of a well-lived functional healthy lifestyle, is to prevent you from making self-sovereign choices that lead you to a joy-full wellness consciousness and rejecting fear-based sickness consciousness.
