Living the Four Agreements: Be Impeccable With Your Word

When people ask for informational reading for spiritual growth and healing, among the top ten books we recommend is: The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. While most spiritual reading is centered on the self, this book helps us to cut through the dramas that have hurt us in the past and to create better, more positive relationships. The first of the Four Agreements is: Be Impeccable With Your Word.Our words are important.

Shadow Work: Dealing with Your Dark Side

Most of us learn from a young age that there two sides to everything. We have yes and no, good and bad and light and dark. We see the “yes, good and light,” as the states we desire to achieve and the “no, bad and dark” as that which we should strive to avoid. As children, we live for the “good girl/boy” moments, the good grades and the things that make us smile: candy, cartoons and summer vacations. We avoid the green vegetables, books and the discipline of the learning environment. While the lighter things in life are certainly blessings, it is our darkness that enables us to grow. The test that we breezed through may quickly fade in our...

This can masquerade as generosity, until you can't do it anymore. There are just too many  people to care for. Eventually, you run out of time and energy and in some cases, physical health.

Changing Your Mind, Changing Your Mood

You will encounter things and people in your life that will put you in a bad mood. Bad moods are part of the human experience. It is hard to avoid them. You can, however, control the amount of time you experience them. It is only your ego that tells you that you need to stew in these emotions. Actually, making the shift is quite simple. Tune into the energy of your Angels. Ask them, "Show me what it is like to be free of this feeling." They will respond immediately. Feel what that glorious, loving  energy feels like. Now, go back to your bad mood. Which one will you choose? It is, really, just that simple. Only your ego makes...
