What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?

by Ellen Wood

Every creation – from the Great Pyramid of Giza to the Peace Corps to the worldwide web – began as an idea, a dream.

We too can bring our dreams into creation. Sometimes, though, we get so used to allowing day-to-day responsibilities to use up our time and energy and spend hours watching mind-numbing TV or YouTube to unwind, that we create our lives by default and lose touch with our dreams. So here’s the question:

What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?

That’s a pretty hefty question and one I happened to read on a paperweight years ago. Nowadays I put that question on sticky notes to prompt me to expand my horizons.

Here’s what I dared to dream: that I could rejuvenate my life and grow younger. Sound like a pipe dream? Actually, it’s not. I know because I’ve done it! Once I was clear about what I wanted and set my intention, all kinds of ideas and inspiration started coming to me.

But let me back up. My dream of growing younger wasn’t just a thought I had one day when looking into the mirror. No. It wasn’t vanity that started me on this path.

It happened one fateful day in 2004 at age 67, ten years after my mother died of Alzheimer’s and several years after I started following in her footsteps, unable to remember recent events and having my tongue trip on words – if I could even find the words. I had noticed other changes, too. My body and energy level were also succumbing to what I believed was an inevitable outcome of old age.

It was part of my belief system that growing older included progressive deterioration of body and mind that could never be reversed. That’s because I had never seen anyone grow younger; I had never heard of anyone growing younger. So it didn’t occur to me to reverse aging until that day thirteen years ago. That’s when I became aware of what I was doing to myself. I began to realize my thoughts and beliefs about growing old were creating a debilitating life for me.

That day I woke up to the fact that I could change the process of aging by  applying mind/spirit techniques I had practiced successfully for decades in other areas of my life to magnetize what I wanted, like happier relationships, less stress and more income.

When I decided – and set my intention – to grow younger, I attuned my energetic vibration to my desire. Techniques for increasing my body’s strength and energy also came to my attention and I began practicing them too. Soon a whole anti-aging program evolved.

It worked! I have been growing younger. I have more energy, more vitality, more stamina, more flexibility than I had even twenty years ago. My body is much stronger and my mind is much clearer and sharper than before I began my program in 2004. And my fingers don’t hurt anymore!

Even though seven years ago I tested positive for the Alzheimer’s gene APO-e4, I now have the tools to keep that gene in the “off” position. Best of all, I discovered that my daily practices have another benefit: I am happy! I often feel quiet joy for no reason.

It’s now my passion to share the techniques that produced such profound changes in me and I have published two books about the process.

Think about it. What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? Living life without limits is a beautiful kind of magic that changes what we used to think was impossible to the possible.
