Sunday, March 27, 2011The Art of Longevity
requires an understanding of longevity wisdom. Your Creator has given
you built-in body wisdom to keep you forever young and healthy.
Essentially, it is an innate awareness of not only your body’s basic
needs but also all the signs and signals by which your body warns you of
what is wrong with you. So, invoke and embrace that wisdom."
When Master Jiro Murai revived the ancient art of Jin Shin Jyutsu
around 1920, one of the terms that he used to described Jin Shin Jyutsu
was the Art of Longevity: Live fully, experience each breath fully.
Most of us are raised to believe that growing older means a progressive
decline in health, wellness, mental and physical ability. I feel lucky
to have had the most amazing Young Grandmother! She passed a few years
ago at over 90 years old but throughout my life she has been an
inspiration in vitality. I have vivid memories of her smiling and living
life fully. In her 80's she was encouraged to participate in the local
Senor Center activities.. but she declined saying "Why would I want to
hang out with those old people?" She ran her own antique shop into her
80's, active and fun-loving. This woman had life to LIVE! She always
made such an impression on me that for as long as I can remember, I
would tell her that when I was as old as her, I wanted to be as young as
she was! For me, she set the example that a study by researchers at
North Carolina State University in 2009 concluded-that you really are only as old as you think you are. Thank you Grandma!
"While scientists have to date largely focused on the biology
of longevity, the secrets of living to an exceptional age lie more in
our personalities, attitudes, support systems and life experiences than
our genes." ~Leonard W. Poon
Regular Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions and self-help provides a valuable
support system as it is aids in restoring the body's energy systems to a
balanced, efficient, functioning state. It's practice helps us to take
charge of our negative attitudes and to change the self-defeating belief
of inevitable aging. It teaches us to master the art of living and to
seeing aging as an opportunity for greater peace of mind, wisdom,
creativity and happiness. Jin Shin Jyutsu brings to us a new awareness
of our limitless life energy and of our ability to partake of the
effortless reality, which is our birthright. We can then expect the best
results by learning and practicing good health habits for staying
healthy and reducing stress. Jin
