Book Review – The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz

four-agreementsThe Book, The Four Agreements, is a trans-formative book by Don Miguel Ruiz.  The book reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering.  It is based on ancient Toltec wisdom.

Join us for this episode as we discuss the Four Agreements.

When I first read this book, it made so much sense.  It is a short and simple book to reads and is like a story.   While small, it contains a very valuable message.  Mastering anyone of The Four Agreements would improve your life drastically.

Don Miguel Ruiz was born in Mexico and is the youngest of 13 children.  He originally attended Medical school and became a surgeon.  He realized one day that what needed to be healed was not only the physical brain, but the human mind as well.   he realized that the ancient Toltec wisdom of family was all the tools needed to change the human mind. He returned to his mother to finish his training and became a Shaman.

The Four Agreements was published in 1997 and was a New York Times bestseller for more than 7 years.

The Four Agreements are:

1. Be Impeccable with your Word.  Speak with integrity and say only what you mean.  Don't speak badly about yourself or gossip about others.

I have always believe the 2 most powerful words we have are "I am....".  What do you say to yourself following the 'I am'?  We often follow that with something that puts ourselves down.  Instead start your day creating a powerful intention for yourself using "I am.....".  For example, I am happy, I am successful or I am peaceful.

I noticed years ago I used to say, 'I am so sick and tired of such and such behavior.'  Well pretty soon - I did start to become in reality sick and tired.   I quickly changed my language and become don-miguel-ruiz-shimpeccable with my word and began to say what I meant.

2. Don't Take Anything Personally.   Nothing others do is because of you.  What they do and say is a projection of their own reality.

So simple and so powerful this concept.   Don't be easily offended and realize that every person on the planet speaks their own language and filters through their experiences of life.

3.  Don't Make Assumptions.  Find the courage to ask questions and express what you really want.  Communicate clearly to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama.

Become a true scientist and ask questions.  Look at your world and your relationships and ask.  Don't assume meaning behind words and action.  What a word means to you, will mean something different to another person.  Your knowledge is based on what your experiences have taught you they mean.  A simple sigh can be an indication of I'm tired or I'm really frustrated.  Ask and find out before you assume.

4.  Always Do Your Best.  Your best will change from moment to moment and it will be different in different circumstances.  Just simply do your best.

My father taught me to work the same for a dime or for $20 an hour, that I should always do my best.  Remember everyone on the planet is doing their best also.  Look at the world without judgement.  Avoid self-judgement, self-abuse and regret.

As you try to live these agreements you will most likely find resistance in the mind.  Don't get frustrated as you go through a transformation.  There are years of habits and history and family patterns.  Be kind to yourself and work on becoming aware.  December is a time we focus on giving gifts to others.  Give yourself and your community a great gift this year by embracing these for traits.

Kally and Mark for webWe have tools at Indigo Mountain that can help.  The LifeLine Technique and the EVOX are terrific at facilitating transformation.

Get the book if you don't already have it.  If you do, read it again.  Enjoy the program.

Enjoy!

Holidays Around the World

holidays-around-the-world-clipart-holidays_around_the_world_21Does Santa wear a big warm suit for Christmas in the land down under?  The Holidays around the World are celebrated by nearly everyone at this time of year.  Many countries have their own unique twist.  This weeks radio program talks about the celebrations around the world.  Click here to listen to this weeks show.

Listen to the show and take a fun holiday tour in the comfort of your home.  You'll find some interesting facts on why the Chinese give red apples at Christmas, even thought they don't celebrate Christmas.

Not everyone celebrates Christmas but there are many festivals and traditions all over the globe.

In many parts of Europe, Krampus, an half-goat, half-demon creature is the answer to kids who are not good.  Krampus is a Pagan relic that was surpressed by the Catholic countries as Christianity spread.  Krampus swats "wicked" children.  Children dress up on December 5th which is known as Krampus Night.  December 6th is Nikolaustag or St. Nicholas Day when many children look outside their door to see if their shoe contains a present a reward for good behavior.

Our modern Christmas Tree comes from the country of Germany.  Advent Wreaths are very common in Austria and Germany.   Most towns will have a Christmas market from November to early December selling decorations and food.  Most towns will have a large Christmas tree in the town square.   The famous Christmas carol Silent Night was written in Austria.

When America was first settled by the Pilgrims, Christmas was not openly celebrated.  And it took years for the Christmas tree to even catch on.

In Belgium people will normally celebrate Christmas Eve with close family and eat the main meal on Christmas Eve.  It will be many courses.  They will also give small presents.  Many go to midnight mass.  A traditional Christmas breakfast is the same as a normal Sunday breakfast.  New Years day is a big deal.  On the 6th of January you would celebrate Epiphany and the 3 wise men.  Children dress up as The Three Wise Men and go from door to door to sing songs.  People will give money or sweets.

Traditional Christmas is not celebrated in Japan, but the Christmas holiday is celebrate by most Japanese eating at.....Kentucky Fried Chicken.  You will need a reservation at least 2 months in advance.   News Years Eve and Day is celebrated and is one of their biggest celebrations - being celebrated for 5 days.

In China on Christmas Eve is celebrated by the giving of red apples.  Stores will sell apples wrapped up in pretty paper.  This is due to the translation from English to Chinese for Christmas Eve - it sounds similar to red apple.  Chinese New is one of the big holidays in this country.  You will also find a huge Harbin Ice Festival that lasts for 3 days.

In Taiwan, most children know about Santa Claus and will sing Christmas songs.  Christmas parties are found, but it is not a national holiday.

Israel will be celebrating Hanukkah, an eight day festival of light and celebrates the triumph of light over darkness.

The biggest celebration in Sweden is S. Lucia's Day on De2014-12-18 15.11.29-1cember 13th.  She was a young Christian girl that was martyred for her faith in 304 AD.

Norway gives a big Christmas tree to the United Kingdom every year as a thank you for the help they gave during World War II and stands in Trafalgar Square in the middle of London.

In the Ukraine people may decorate their trees with spider webs.  This is from a legend of a poor family.  The spiders heard their cries and during the night decorated their tree wit webs and then they turned to gold and silver.

In Spain and most South American countries, most people go to midnight mass.  They will eat their main meal on Christmas Eve before the service.  After the midnight service, people walk through the streets carrying torches, playing guitars and beating on tambourines and drums.  They have a saying, "Tonight is the good night and it is not meant for sleeping."

Many countries including Spain celebrate December 28th as the Day of the Innocent Saints.  It is a lot like Aprils Fools Day in the USA.  They will try to trick people.  This is in remembrance of the babies that were killed on the orders of King Herod when he was trying to kill the baby Jesus.

On to News Years Eve in Spain and you will eat 12 grapes at the stroke of midnight.  They represent the coming months.  Then off course January 6th or Epiphany is the 12th night after Christmas and is the festival of the three Magic Kings.  Many gifts are opened on this day.  Children write letters to the Kings on Boxing Day - December 26th asking for toys and presents.  They even leave a bucket of water out for the camels.

Mexico will celebrate Christmas from December 12th until January 6th.  From December 16th until Christmas Eve, the children perform the 'Posada', they re-enact Mary and Joseph looking for room.  A pinata will often a part of the festivities.  It has a 7 point star to represent the 7 deadly sins.   Mexico is where we get the poinsettia flowers.

The Irish will leave a candle burning in the window to let Mary and Joseph know there is room.kwanzaa

Kwanzaa is a celebration of Family, Community, and Culture.  It is a week-long celebration held in the United States and is based on 7 core principles.  It was created in 1965 as the first specifically African-American holiday.

Stress Less This Season and Enjoy Some Delicious Herbal Tea

I've got two great radio programs to share with you and they are actually related, for me anyway.  When I sit and enjoy a delicious cup of herbal tea, I relax and unwind a bit and the stress melts away or at least I don't think about the things causing stress for a few minutes while I enjoy my tea.

Female Wearing Christmas Hat by imagerymajestic at Freedigitalphotos.netThe first show broadcast on October 22, 2014 - "Stress Less During the Holidays".

For many the holidays mean sickness, stress, depression and lots of busyness.  We've got 10 tips to help you stress less, so take a listen.

Fall kicks off the holiday season helping us transition to the busyness that can dominate this time of the year.  Fall is a time to let go and clear out the clutter and negativity.

If you find yourself dreading the whirlwind of the last quarter, then tune in with us and learn how you can make the most of fall and the holiday season.

One of my keys is from KISS - Keep IT Simple and Special for the holiday and all year really.  You don't have to be brilliant, super crafty, witty, or any other trait you see shared all over the media and internet.  You just need to be you, and you are special just as you are.  Share the good times and moments with those you care about.

If you want to read more about managing stress during the holidays, check out my article on Your True Colours Magazine, page 37.

Chinese Style Herbal Floral Tea by KEKO64The second show aired on November 5, 2014 - "All About Herbal Tea or Rather Herbal Infusions"

Personally, I love sipping on herbal infusion, especially as the weather cools down.  In fact as I'm updating the blog - I'm drink a nice warm cup write now.

Many people think they don’t like herbal tea/infusions, but they have probably not enjoyed a good cup.  Tune in and learn all about the traditions of tea, types of tea and how to get a good cup.  There is nothing I love more than visiting a friend in the afternoon and enjoying good conversation, relaxation and a delicious cup of herbal tea.

Find out which tea has more antioxidants than green tea, making it the super star of tea without caffeine..... I'll give you  a hint, it comes from South America.

And, by the way, herbal tea is really an herbal infusion.  Green tea is really green tea infusion.  Join us and find out why.
