It’s now evening on New Year’s Eve, here in Melbourne, and it’s time for me to bring you Clip 4, from What if? The Movie.
This is the last of the 4 promotional clips from this recently released movie I am showcasing. The other 3 are on my posts What If? The Movie, What If? The Movie – Clip 2 and What If? The Movie – Clip 3. I’m very pleased to have been promoting this movie!
In this clip, Virginia Ellen talks about people in the Himalayas who have babies at age 70 and 80, and who are still working at 140. She mentions that they have pure food, and she refers to their lifestyle. Like the other clips from this movie, this one is going outside of what we generally think is possible.
Here it is:
I would love to know more about these communities! I still haven’t seen the whole movie, so I don’t know whether it gives more information. I do find myself wondering what the evidence is for their ages. Perhaps this information is purely anecdotal—it might be hard to prove scientifically. Doesn’t mean it isn’t true!
Virginia isn’t saying food has to be pure for a person to live longer, but I thought this clip was implying it, a little.
I personally think that we can change our health and longevity by working with our intuition, thoughts and emotions, and that we don’t necessarily need to be affected by food impurities, toxins, nasty bacteria and viruses, and the rest. A self-realised immortal being would be able to cope with a few artificial colours and flavours!
I do think a person who is emotionally healthy would tend to be drawn to eating food that serves their body well. But many of us know some elderly relative who smokes like a chimney, or whatever, and lives to a ripe old age.
What do you think?
oh, and… HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I finally sent myself an email to remind myself to watch these videos at home, since I can’t at work. I’ve heard some stories similar to these, too, but they’re always (it seems) in an area low on technology and so it’s hard to locate more information.
Adelle Davis, health food guru before health food was popular, wrote that if our nutrition was completely adequate, our livers would be able to detoxify many more things and our immune systems would work better too. She talked about including all of the necessary nutrients daily, as building blocks for the body, rather than about avoiding chemicals and such.
I haven’t had much luck with having a change in my thoughts or emotions bring about a physical change in my body. I’ve always been the kind of person who would rather take a pill than change my lifestyle, mostly because I find it very hard to make myself change. I wish I knew why, or how to change that (is that redundant?). My habits seem almost impossible to break.
Happy New Year to you too, Robin! As I post this, I’ve already read that you Aussies have finished celebrating, and we still have 14 hours to go.
Dots last blog post..Predictions for the Future
Hi Robin. I have noticed that when I feel more fulfilled within my life, I have less cravings for junk food. But I just dunno about those people who eat and drink all the “wrong” things and live to a ripe old age. There has to be more going on than we are aware of. My grandmother lived to an age of 81. She was a chocoholic and had perfect teeth, even after eating a chocolate bar a day, plus she was not overweight.
Davinas last blog post..Seduced By Snowmen
i think there is something wrong with the foods we eat. it’s not as healthy as it was in the past – i wonder if this is causing a lot more of the cancers and sickness that we see today. i would like to eat a lot more healthier this year.
Naturals last blog post..Should You Care What Other People Think?
From watching these clips I don’t think I’ll purchase this movie. I can’t disagree with any of it. But it kind of smells like “Secret” type marketing. They share a lot of what can be with little sharing of specific how-to.
Tom Volkar / Delightful Works last blog post..Be Authentic and Grow Rich
@Dot – it does make sense to eat well, doesn’t it? I think observing ourselves is a very powerful first step to take when we are trying to heal ourselves (i.e. change) – it’s relatively easy and works wonders. c u Dot!
@Davina – that’s interesting about your grandmother – it’s not straightforward, is it?
@Natural – yes – many of us have got quite out of touch with nature, with our foods.
@Tom – they are short clips, aren’t they! I guess I’m intrigued because they talk about things I have already been interested in for some time. Cheers Tom!
On New Years my husband had huge asthma attack, nearly prompting a call to 911, but he didn’t want to go to the E.R. He knew he had to go through the attack to get to the root of the trigger. Using EMDR and other healing modalities, we discovered a traumatic event involving a near-drowning of him by a teenager had somehow added to the creation of his asthma. Previously, he’d realized the death of a kitten had also contributed to his asthma. After peeling off layers like this, we’ve both realized how much of our health comes from the mind and emotions of the past. Wouldn’t it be great to raise children free of the baggage we carry?
SpaceAgeSage – Loris last blog post..Seven things I learned about blogging
Robin, my tech administrator was able to change the layout of my blog to accommodate Firefox and Internet Explorer. Thank you again for bringing the technical issue to my attention.
I initially heard about the “What if” movie clips from Jenny Mannion on her healing pain naturally blog. The individuals involves certainly share very uplifting messages that prompt meaningful reflections. We are each invited to redefine what is possible. As we choose to step outside our conditioning, we become more open-minded and realize that other ways of thinking, feelings and living exist and represent opions that are always open to us if we choose to shift mindsets, perception and perspective. Happy New Year!
Liara Coverts last blog post..When did you last redefine "normal?"
@Lori – Oh Lori – this is a great story! (but sorry about your new year!) It’s great the way you were both determined to get to the bottom of this, instead of just thinking it was the food, or whatever.
@Liara – I just had a look at your site, and it is looking great! (In Safari for Mac and all) The design and the carp are beautiful. I agree… “We are each invited to redefine what is possible” – indeed.
I want to get my eating pure again, I did for such a long while, before Kelly came along. Then I was sleep deprived and taking the quick way out and stopping off for burgers. And it was a downward slide to Ding-Dongs from there. (A Hostess dessert cake “product.”)
But, could I still have my daily coffee? I’m really not ready to give that up just yet.
Jannies last blog post..Notes to self
I definitely think that pollution of food, water and air are major factors in development of disease that can shorten life. Hard to get away from these things in the modern world.
I finally watched “What If” yesterday based on your recommendation. Thanks for introducing it to me!! I can understand more deeply now why you are promoting the video. It is in alignment with the messages on your site! Great job!
Evelyn Lims last blog post..What Are The Akashic Records?
@Jannie – Ding-Dongs? We have Tim Tams (is the ding-dong meant to be the doorbell ringing?)
@CT – hi there and thanks for visiting! It does make sense to have clean everything, if possible, doesn’t it?
@Evelyn – how exciting! I’d LOVE to know more about your thoughts about it, some time.
