What would it take for you to be living your most fulfilled life? Is that the case right now? Most would answer no, not right now, but soon. "Right now, I am living my life by default, just taking things as they come and putting one foot in front of the other" you say. How is that working for you? Not that well? It is time for a change, because you are running out of time.
I invite you to join the e-course, Last Chapters on Purpose. It is my hope that this journey will allow you to clarify how you want to live your last chapters and that you will be able to make a plan to make them fulfilling and amazing, however you define that state. Your participation will involve hard work--exploring the past, releasing the pain and formulating your plan for the future through the reading material, exercises, meditation and affirmations.
By way of background, Last Chapters On Purpose came out of a constant, nagging feeling that I had that maybe, I was not where I should be in life. Over 60 years lived, and still, I felt that I didn't have it right. When I calculated my life expectancy for my current age, I learned that my total life expectancy is now 87 years, or 31,755 days. For.my.whole.life.
As of today, I have already used up, lived 24,667 of those days, and therefore, have only 7088 days left. What?
Yes, being the organizing type, I got all analytical with the data and even if you don’t, 7088 days is mind blowing. I realized that am running out of time—and that is if I am completely average. I could have fewer days, or I could have more, but I went with the statistical average and likelihood that my life expectancy was this. I finally realized that I had to give up living the life that had me in a constant state of ruminating about the past, and anxious about the future because I finally get it to the depths of my being, time is short and I am not finished. Like thieves, worry, fear and anxiety have been stealing my dreams.
As we reach 50, 60 years old and older, we are starting to see that friends are dying. Yes, people younger than you are dying or being diagnosed with serious illnesses, and you may have experienced the death of parents or other loved ones. We must realize the gravity of the situation and consider the day countdown…for me, 7088. When I quantify it like that with numbers of days already lived and numbers of days left, it is sobering. I try to think of how many of my already lived and used up 24,667 days I can really say I lived my life to the fullest, reaching my highest potential. Not many.
If I am honest with myself, I don’t even feel close to the end of my life in the sense that, yes, I can list everything that I have accomplished, concluded that I am so very pleased with my life and that I am ready to go. No. Even though I have had a lot of great things happen in my life, I don’t really have a list of things that I have accomplished because I kind of lived life by default. But no more.
For most of my adult life, certainly since the age of 30, I felt like I was in the wrong place, doing the wrong thing. This feeling only got stronger with age, and as decades go by, I continued to feel that was supposed to be doing something, still. Something more. Something else. I just didn’t know what it was, but it never yet felt like I was in my true place, even after 6 decades.
What I realized after years of research and months of introspection, is that life is a state of mind and being. It wasn't a physical place that I was looking for, but a state of being, a peace and knowing that every second is a gift to be valued and not discounted by the past or the future.
Tomorrow, I will only have 7087 days left, so I am today and every day, living my life consciously and living my last chapters on purpose, not by default. I am sharing the journey that I took and hope that you find my experience helpful. I think that there are others who feel the way that I do and can relate to where I am in my life.
This course is organized in 6 Modules, consisting of written content, exercises, meditations and affirmations. Additionally, an e-book of the material in the course is also available for purchase if you want have a written copy.
This is how your journey will proceed:
Yes, we start by talking about life and death and age, the factors that have drawn us all together. In addition to our perspective about age, we address the world’s view of aging people, and how we must counteract the perception that we are feeble and fading. We are boomers, and are strong and vibrant, and still have a lot of living to do.
Module 2-Life Review
We cannot make any plan about the future without analyzing who we were, and who we are. A look back at life, dreams, expectations and mistakes reveals a lot about what is holding us back from living our best life now.
Module 3-Releasing The Past
Looking back at life undoubtedly brings up painful experiences and regrets. We address this emotional pain head on and participate in a Releasing Emotional Pain Meditation. On the subject of Regrets, we acknowledge and accept mistakes we have made in regard to others, and bad choices that we have made for ourselves. The Forgiveness Meditation allows us the freedom to let those regrets go.
As we prepare to move forward with a plan to live our Last Chapters On Purpose, we set our goals and intentions and begin to contemplate a better way.
Taking the 10 most important areas of your life, we focus on an ideal plan for life moving forward. Health (Physical), Health (Mental), Body, Finances, Work, Relationships, Home, Spirituality, Creative and Dreams are integral parts of your life, and you will consciously decide and outline how you want to live your most fulfilling and amazing life in each of these areas.
Module 6-Daily Practice
Once you decide what your state of action and being is going to be in your Last Chapters On Purpose, you will participate in a Daily Practice to keep your mind, body, heart and spirit connected to your higher self and your purpose.
As a heartfelt thank you for joining our community, we would like you to have these additional bonuses to assist you in your journey.
24 Life Enhancing Affirmations.
These affirmations are valuable if you read them to yourself silently and out loud. To help with your practice, you can also make cards with the affirmations and place them around your house to remind yourself of your goals and desired state of mind.
Mindfulness Body Scan.
This meditation is an exercise in thankfully recognizing and acknowledging our amazing bodies and how much they serve us every day, every hour, every minute, every second, automatically and constantly.
Super Alkaline Feast.
The alkaline diet is based on the idea that replacing acid-forming foods with alkaline foods can improve health and there are some studies that support the theory. It is undisputed that foods with higher alkaline are healthier in general, so including as many of these foods in your diet is beneficial. Test for yourself--I know I feel much better when I focus on foods from this list.
Chakra Balancing Meditation.
Chakras are energy centers that are our life force and it is essential that your chakras are balanced in order to have a fulfilled life. Each of the 7 Chakras is connected to well-being in a specific important area of your mind, body and spirit. As you meditate on the chakras, you will be able to discern where your weaknesses are and focus on balancing that area.
