“The four agreements”

  • Be Impeccable with Your Word
  • Don’t Take Anything Personally
  • Don’t Make Assumptions
  • Always Do Your Best

Four rules that, if you have the interrest and the capacity to follow them, will forever change your life.

If you, like me, add a daily yoga/meditation practice, you will achieve body and soul control.
It will help you to avoid negative reactions on comments from others.

You will become better in not falling for evey craving comming over you.
You will feel more content with your self.
You will sleep better.
You will be nicer to your self.satisfied
You will have realistic demands on your self.
You will have more realistic expectations on your self.
You will be healthier
You will be happier

Awareness

12juli Caminon

Today I am in my third week of a yogaprogram running over twelve weeks. Every morning I step up somewhat earlier in the morning to listen to Sara E guiding me through a short yoga-pass. Ten to fifteen minutes. Beginning with deep breathing, sufi.circles, respiratory anchor, babypose and ending with a bodyscanning. I find it really rewarding, doing it on a daily basis. It has been my goal to achieve that. As a daily routine. Everyday giving myself the good practise of yoga, meditation, breathing. I´ve had it as a goal but failed as I thought I had to do very long passes  every day. It is achievable when not having that as a must and finding a way through these short everyday passes. And I can already feel the difference it brings to me. I feel lighter. More focused. Less stressed in situations of stressy nature. In meeting of certain people that can make me unsecure, stressed I feel a difference in how I meet them. How I listen. How I look at them. I try to be, and I succeed in, beeing here and, now focused on the very moment that is happening here and now with me and others.
I am reading the book of Don Miguel Ruiz – “The four agreements” – and it helps me getting my mind in focus, and aware while the doing is happening. I can more control my behavior in the present and that is a great and sensational experience. To be able to direct my self in the step. In the making. Talking. It is really magic to realize that it is possible to change the manner in which I act and react. Thanks to meditation, yoga, walking long distances, meeting different people with all the different experiences and backgrounds, lerning techniques to control my breath, control my body, control my mind, control my thoughts makes a big difference in the everyday life.
Tomorrow evening I will also have my, so longed after hatha-yoga pass with my regular group.
