In August, I will turn 65. In the United States, this age of 65 is perceived as a special milestone, and in many cases, people retire from work and are labeled as seniors. However, what I feel about myself now is that I am more competent than when I was 20. I feel more vibrant, capable, and disciplined than before. Daily cleaning makes me feel perfectly aligned with where I am and what I’m doing now. Above all, I am living freely from any concepts of age and aging. I feel ready for the future and everything that’s about to begin, just as I am.

It’s not because I’ve been cleaning for over 40 years. We all live with stories, meanings, habits, fears about our bodies, health, illnesses, and injuries through memories accumulated over a long history. However, these can be changed at this very moment by your choice. When you free yourself from these memories and connect with the divine, your body begins its cleaning. The body is brimming with the ability to receive inspiration directly.

Not just for you, but by your cleaning, the restrictive relationship with their bodies that your family and ancestors were compelled to accept can change, allowing for newfound freedom.
