The Four Agreements

1. Be Impeccable With Your Word
Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

2. Don't Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering.

3. Don't Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

4. Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.

Everything we do is based on agreements we have made - agreements with ourselves, with other people, with God, with life. But the most important agreements are the ones we make with ourselves. In these agreements we tell ourselves who we are, how to behave, what is possible, what is impossible. One single agreement is not such a problem, but we have many agreements that come from fear, deplete our energy, and diminish our self-worth."

In this powerful book that has remained on The New York Times Bestseller List for over eight years, don Miguel reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. When we are ready to change these agreements, there are four deceptively simple, yet powerful agreements that we can adopt as guiding principles. The Four Agreements® offer a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love.

Tantra Invites Your Body to Remember

To my followers, who requested more articles on Tantra... :)

Tantra is a magical path to creating the life and experiences of your dreams. Among the many definitions of tantra, mine is distinctly simple – ‘Tantra invites your body to remember’ - your essence, your power, your potential, your dreams, and your body’s innate erotic intelli­gence. Tantra helps remove blockages due to dis-ease, sexual abuse, in­vasive medical procedures, negative experiences, and the stresses of everyday living. Tantra lovingly returns you to ecstasy - your birth­right.

Our most ecstatic sex occurs when our body and heart merge with our soul to achieve a powerful connection with ourselves, our partner, and our Creator. When we allow ourselves to sink deeply into that state of peace and release all those goal-oriented notions (you know the ones), waves of ecstasy can ripple through and transport us to a place of connectedness with all there is.

Tantra has been called the yoga of sex, full body spirituality, and the science of ecstasy, though it isn't just another way to have sex - it is another way to live. The merging of our sexuality and our spiri­tuality is a powerful force, and the most potent (and enjoyable!) vehicle for transformation.

You can enjoy tantra on any level of exper­ience and dedication, and all rituals, techniques and exercises can be modi­fied for solo practice or same sex couples. Select those that reson­ate and weave them into your current practice. You will exper­ience a deeper richness of life as you become more empathetic, less judg­mental, and welcome the love that the Universe has wait­ing.

If you are currently practicing 'conscious lovemaking' you may al­ready be incorporating some basic tantra techniques. Some lovers practice a more attentive, conscious, slower paced version of 'regular sex' adding tantric techniques such as ritual, eye gazing and partner breathing.

More dedicated practitioners incorporate many of the traditional rituals, exercises and positions that stimulate a heightened state of bliss. The techniques may include conscious breathing, sound, move­ment, massage and meditation. Sensuality is used to expand and moderate their sexual pleasure as they enjoy more prolonged love­making sessions. Additional tantra techniques assist in retaining and re-circulating sexual energy allowing for ejaculatory choice and full body orgasms for men, and multiple orgasms and ejaculations for women.

Tantric philosophy is non-judgmental, ac­cepting of all experi­ences. Every experience, including lack of arousal, is viewed as an opportunity for growth (no pun intended); nothing is viewed as good or bad.

Tantric practice can deepen and prolong your relationship(s) as the love and sexual passion are heightened and sustained. Can you remember falling in love with the partner of your dreams? You were on cloud nine, energized, sexually supercharged. You had 'chemistry' – though the eu­phoria may have faded within 3 months, when familiarity set in. Tantric practice is one path to transform that chemistry into 'alchemy' - a deep and rich mind, body, spirit connection which actually strengthens as the years pass.

Tantra flourishes today. There are many schools, many teachers and many interpretations. I honor all paths with integrity and invite you to explore and embrace what resonates with you. Enjoy your journey!

How To Attract Abundance

If you’re not currently living your life in abundance, then you should start doing something about it right now. Well actually, the supply of abundance all around us is more than enough, so all you have to do is ask. Being abundant is a state which involves wealth but means more than just that. Real genuine abundance is the state of being linked and conjoined to the primitive origin of everything that is, of manifesting a steadfast flow of positive and optimistic energy to extend and nurture love, life and artistry. Abundance is not just anything which lives and breathes outside you; instead, it is one state of being that is experienced in one’s mind.

Being abundant is effortless and limitless; it is experiencing bliss and happiness. The Law of Attraction declares that “you would attract in you those things that match your state of being.” So if you focus on the things that you lack, then the message you send forth is one of you don’t have and that is precisely what you will attract. On the contrary, if you imagine and develop a state of being abundant in your thoughts, you would pull more wealth into your life. To be able to lure abundance, be abundant and start to think and act as if you already possess and own all the things that you wish for.

Now, most people might think that if they try to amass more money, they can do anything and everything that they have ever dreamed and aspired of doing and inevitably, be much happier. Yet in fact, the reverse is true. When you start to create a status of joy and gladness, you begin to pull towards you not lack or scarcity, but wealth. You will find yourself be more inspired and motivated to do those things that may soon lead and direct to reaching the very physical state that matches your state of being. You might have heard or be familiar with an old proverb which says, “the rich is getting richer and richer and the poor is getting poorer and poorer.” This is not just because the rich have much more wealth which they invest to earn interest, but it’s also because of their state of being ample…it attracts more of it.

Therefore, think more abundant thoughts and you would begin to lure wealth. However, the problem with majority of us is that we have the tendency to concentrate on out scarcity or the things that we lack. We unknowingly do so when we place ourselves in the condition of always wanting. Therefore, instead of pulling abundance, you end up luring more lack and scarcity in your life. This expresses to the Universe that we are lacking rather than being richly supplied. To begin magnetizing wealth, see the world as ample and a welcoming place to live in. the supply of abundance in the universe is endless.

You may use an affirmation like, “I am able to draw the abundance in my life because I am in a state of abundance.”
