Don Miguel Ruiz, Author Of The Four Agreements, was Super Soul Sundaying With Oprah this Morning.
The First Agreement is, Being Impeccable With your Word, which means To Use Your Energy In The Direction Of Truth And Love For Yourself.
Ruiz calls it "living your life in heaven".
How many times do we pay for one mistake? (bad judgement, mistake at work, BAG of chips, shame we carry from childhood, etc.)
The human is the only animal on earth that pays a thousand times for the same mistake. The rest of the animals pay once for every mistake they've made.
But not us!! We have a powerful memory! We make a mistake, we judge ourselves, we find ourselves guilty and we punish ourselves over and over!
So Simple, but true!
How many people carry this tape in their heads that says,"I'm Not Creative enough, I'm not thin enough, I'm not as good as I used to be?...all the not enoughs. And in your mind that equates to "I won't be valued..I wont be loved, and that is really what the fear is.
Sooo, Forgiveness is very important to untie ourselves from past and past behaviors and move forward. Losing weight is waiting for you! Having the body you want is waiting for you! Pushing through in the wake of set backs is waiting for you!
Have a Great Week! Set a goal, forgive a mistake and talk nice to yourself!
"Change yourself and just like magic everything around you will start to change"
