Mystery of Ageing How To Slowdown Ageing

Life Coach Article
The mystery of ageing has been the subject of many research projects and beauty products since time began. In reality though there is no mystery, just a lack of awareness as to how we grow old. This lack of awareness about the mystery of ageing stems from our worldview of collective conditioning. Teachers, parents taught us that ageing is normal. This way of seeing things has been called “the hypnosis of social conditioning.” From the very first day we are born, this social conditioning starts to take place. As we progress through life this conditioning gets more and more intense.

Mystery of ageing-Your body is ageing beyond control

One mystery of ageing is that your body is ageing beyond your control because of the collective conditioning of society. In order to create the experience of an ageless body, you must discard the assumptions about who you are and what the true nature of the mind and body is.

Your body is totally aware of how you think and feel about yourself. Society has created this illusion by conditioning you from a young age. This becomes true, because you believed it to be true.

Impulses of intelligence in our cells constantly create the body in new forms every second. The skin replaces itself once a month, the stomach lining every five days, the liver every six weeks, and the skeleton every three months. By the end of a year, 98 percent of the atoms in your body will have been exchanged for new ones.

“People don’t grow old. When they stop growing, they become old.”

Learning not to age

The cells in your body renew every second when you are still growing. To keep on growing learn something new, keep positive and active. You are only as old as the information that travels through you. You can control that information. Although there is a certain amount of fixed information in your body atoms of food, air and water that make up each cell, the power to transform that information is subject to free will. One mystery of ageing you have in this world without conditions, is your interpretation of it.
Interpretations arise from a person’s self-interaction. You experience this as internal dialogue. Thoughts, judgements, and feelings are always flowing through your mind: “I like this, I don’t like that, I’m afraid of that, I’m not sure about this, ” etc. Internal dialogue is not random mental noise; it is generated from a deep level by your beliefs and assumptions.

You are only as old as the information that travels Ageing from childhoodthrough you. You can control that information. Although there is a certain amount of fixed information in your body atoms of food, air and water that make up each cell, the power to transform that information is subject to free will. One mystery of ageing you have in this world without conditions, is your interpretation of it.

Thoughts, judgements, and feelings are always flowing through your mind: “I like this, I don’t like that, I’m afraid of that, I’m not sure about this, ” etc. Internal dialogue is not random mental noise; it is generated from a deep level by your beliefs and assumptions. Our fear of ageing and our deep belief that we are meant to grow old may get transformed into ageing itself, as a self-fulfilling prophecy generated by a poor self-image.

To prevent this self-fulfilling prophecy from happening you can replace the belief that your body decays in time, invoke the belief that your body is new at every moment. Your body is not a mindless machine. It always regenerates when you let it. An active mind and body will stay young.

New Beliefs to Slowdown Ageing

These new beliefs are not just nicer to live with; they are true – we experience the joy of life through our bodies, so it is only natural to believe that our bodies are not set against us but want what we want.

The human body is made up of a complexity of many parts. When a person has a painful leg condition and is asked. “What is wrong with your leg?” and the reply comes back. “It’s old age”. The response from the questioner. “Aren’t both legs the same age!” There is not much further this conversation can go. As the person asking the question has made a valid point, both legs are the same age.

A hundred things you pay no attention to – breathing, digesting, growing new cells, repairing damaged old ones, purifying toxins and many more ‘auto pilot’ bodily functions. All play a huge part in the ageing process. A lifetime of unconscious living leads to numerous deterioration’s, while a lifetime of conscious participation prevents them. The very fact of paying conscious attention to bodily functions instead of leaving them on auto pilot will change how you age.

Three Ages of Man

There are three ages to man that need to be defined before we measure someones age.

Chronological age -how old are you by the calendar

Biological age -how old your body is in terms of critical life signs and cellular processes

Psychological age -how old you feel you are

Only the first of these is fixed, yet chronological age is also the most unreliable of the three. One person who is 50 years old may be nearly as healthy as when they were 25, while another may already have the body of a 60 year old. To really know who you are, the second measure – biological age – comes into play; it tells us how time has affected your organs and tissues compared to other people of your chronological age.

Time doesn’t affect your body uniformly, however; practically every cell, tissue and organ is ageing on its own timetable, which makes biological age much more complex than chronological age. A middle-aged marathon runner may have the leg muscles, heart and lungs of someone half their age, but their knees and kidneys may be ageing rapidly due to excessive stress, and their eyesight and hearing could be declining. You become unique as the years pass.

Biological Age

Biological age is known to be changeable – regular physical exercise can reverse ten of the most typical effects of biological age, including high blood pressure, excess body fat, improper sugar balance, and decreased muscle mass. It has been found that elderly people can increase their life expectancy by around 10 years by adopting a healthier lifestyle.

Psychological Age

Psychological age is even more flexible. Like biological age, psychological age is very personal- no two people have exactly the same psychological age. Ageing and our deep belief that we are meant to grow old may get transformed into ageing itself, as a self-fulfilling prophecy generated by a poor self-image.

To prevent this self-fulfilling prophecy from happening you can replace the belief that your body decays in time, invoke the belief that your body is new at every moment. Your body is not a mindless machine. It always regenerates when you let it. An active mind and body will stay young.
