Judy was at my December Great Big Dreams Retreat. She’s 67. I’d like to report that when she mentioned her age to the circle of women, there was a collective gasp in the air. But really, it was more like a collective “Huh?”
Judy could easily have told us she was in her 50’s. She looks (and feels) that young. She has the vitality and enthusiasm of a twenty year old. And her face and skin are just youthful. In a natural way. Not in a plastic surgery way.
At one point over the weekend, I was talking with Judy and a few other women. I told Judy that she was an inspiration to all of us at the retreat. During the conversation she shared a simple anti-aging secret that she created. I loved it. So, I asked her if I could share it on my blog.
Judy said that many years back, she asked the Universe to give her something to use as a subliminal “button” that she could put in her mind as a trigger. This “button” would automatically alert her to reinforce her own subconscious suggestions.
She said, “The words came back to me that the letter ‘J’ appeared on more license plates than any other letter in the alphabet.” She admitted not being much of a “car person,” but that as she drove around the Tidewater area of Virginia, she noticed the letter “J” all over the place on license plates.
So she told her subconscious that every time she saw the letter “J” on a license plate, her body would be reminded that she weighs 135 and that she has the skin of an 18 year old. She then let her body take care of how this would happen.
[Note: You could easily do this technique with anything you want to outsource to your subconscious. Building wealth, finishing a song, weight loss, affirmations, etc.]
In Judy’s own words:
“Now, I’m 67 years old and even I must say that when I look at myself in the mirror, I’m doing really good. And every time I began to push the scales a little bit, my appetite just dies back. It’s been working so far.”
