For 20 years, Marianne Williamson has been a pioneer on the front lines of a worldwide spiritual movement aimed at creating a global shift in collective consciousness. Last year, at age 61, Marianne stepped out of her comfort zone and ran for office in California’s 33rd Congressional District.

    For many, Marianne acknowledges, it can be difficult to take a risk, especially after a certain age. “It has to do with who your self is,” she says. “Because spiritually, you know, enlightenment is a shift in self-identification from body identification to spirit identification.”

    In the video above, Marianne explains why “opportunities for infinite possibility exist no matter what age we are.”
