My first few months on The AIM Program, I did not feel well, but that had been the case for a long time. At the same time, I felt as if something was happening to my sense of well being. I couldn't exactly explain it at first; I just finally had enough energy to get things done.
By the time I had been on The AIM Program for eight months, I was feeling better and I had gone back to designing restaurants full time. I somehow felt able to handle the travel and stress the job entails. I'd been too tired to drive long distance for five or six years and now I found myself driving a thousand miles to projects with no great difficulty.
On one of my infrequent trips home, I was musing about what was different and realized I felt happy. Happy is not something I have ever looked for in my life and I was surprised and pleased to wake up to the sensation.
After being on AIM for a year, I have had enough time to analyze the self-healing I have experienced. I have discovered that at sixty years old, I feel better than I did when I was fifty. I am able to handle living and working on the road, I drive up to three thousand miles a month with ease and recover from long journeys with a good nights sleep.
I am able to stick to my intentions and find it easier to keep a workout routine. Follow through in general is easier, because I feel well.
It seems that before The AIM Program, it took all my energy to stay alive, that every waking moment was filled with searching for what would make me feel better and left no energy to do what seemed necessary to achieve the goal. Now, I am able to use my energy to be alive and active in the world. The sense of despair I felt in the dying process has been replaced with a knowing that I am able to sustain health while continuing to function in the world, at a level that allows me to make future plans, knowing I will be able to fulfill them.
