The Four Agreements: Part 5

Good day friends,

Over the next few weeks, I am reading, The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. Some days I will Quote a page or just give you a summary of what I read and how I understand it. I am just an ordinary person, and I find it interesting how different people see the world. This is not based on any typical religion. I hope you find it as interesting as I did. Please keep an open mind.

Domestication and the Dream of the Planet: Part 3

“The outside dream hooks our attention and teaches us what to believe, beginning with the language that we speak. Language is the code for understanding and communication between humans. Every letter, every word in each language is an agreement. We call this a page in a book; the word page is an agreement that we understand. Once we understand the code, our attention is hooked and the energy is transferred from one person to another.

It was not your choice to speak English. You didn’t choose your religion or your moral values – they were already there before you were born. We never had the opportunity to choose what to believe or what not to believe. We never chose even the smallest of these agreements. We didn’t even choose our own name.

As children, we didn’t have the opportunity to choose our beliefs, but we agreed with the information that was passed to us from the dream of the planet via other humans. The only way to store information is by agreement. The outside dream may hook our attention, but if we don’t agree, we don’t store that information. As soon as we agree, we believe it, and this is called faith. To have faith is to believe unconditionally.

That’s how we learn as children. Children believe everything adults say. We agree with them, and our faith is so strong that the belief system controls our whole dream of life. We didn’t choose these beliefs, and we may have rebelled against them, but we are not strong enough to win the rebellion.”

The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz

My titbit on today’s quote.

Children indeed believe everything that adults say. Adults are supposed to teach us and be our role models. Even as adults, we seek the advice and leadership of older and wiser people.
Although as children, we did not choose our religion, language, or our moral values. We still have the choice to change them to suit our needs. In the modern age, we can even change our name and surname if we wish to.

With all my heart, thank you for your continued support.

Have a Blessed day.

Magical Relationships: 1 March 2021

Good day friends,

Hope you are all still enjoying the Gratitude. Love. Positivity posts.

28 Weeks of practicing Gratitude….

Today we focus on relationships again.

Can you imagine if you were the only person on earth. No one to talk to, no one to share your interests. What would be the point of creating anything if there is no one to look at it.
It is contact and experiences with other people that give our life meaning, purpose, and joy. Our relationships affect our lives more than anything else. To receive the life of our dreams, we must understand how it affects our life, and how it is a powerful channel for gratitude and to magically change our lives.
Gratitude makes relationships flourish. As you increase your gratitude for any relationship, you will magically receive an abundance of happiness and good things in that relationship. Gratitude will give you more patience, understanding, compassion, and kindness.

Words are powerful when you complain about someone you harm your own life. By the Law of Attraction, anything you say or think about another person, you bring to yourself.

“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.” ~ Thornton Wilder

Choose three of your closest relationships and collect a photo of each person.
With the photo in front of you, write five things you are most grateful for about each person. You can do this in your journal, on your phone, or on your computer.
Begin each sentence with the magic words, thank you, Name, and what you are grateful for.

Do this together with all your other daily gratitude practices.

My daily gratitude routine.

  1. When you wake up to a new day, before doing a single thing say, Thank You.
  2. Say, Thank you for the magical day I am going to have.
  3. From the moment you put your feet on the ground until you finished your morning routine, say the magic words, Thank You, in your mind for everything you touch and use.
  4. Go through my plans for the day in my mind and say, Thank you in advance for it going smoothly.
  5. Say, Thank you for the great news coming to me today!
  6. Count your blessings: Make a list of 10 blessings. Write why you’re grateful for each blessing. Reread your list and say “Thank you, thank you, thank you” Feeling gratitude for each blessing.
  7. Identify 2 relationships and write 5 things you are grateful for in the person. It can be a family member, a friend, a colleague even a pet. During the day say “Thank you, name.”
  8. Say thank your for your different body parts, organs and your senses. Be grateful for each of them.
  9. Four times a day read the words on the card slowly and be grateful for your health. (THE GIFT OF HEALTH IS KEEPING ME ALIVE.)
  10. Four times or more a day look at your Magic Bill and be grateful for the abundance of money you have been given in your life. (THANK YOU FOR ALL THE MONEY I’VE BEEN GIVEN THROUGHOUT MY LIFE.)
  11. While at work, look for things to be grateful for. Say to yourself. ‘I am so grateful for ……….’
  12. Try to go through the day without saying or thinking anything negative. If you think negative thoughts stop immediately and say but I am really grateful for…..
  13. Say, Thank you and be grateful every time you eat of drink something.
  14. When someone perform a service that benefits you, look them in the face and say, Thank you.
  15. For 90 seconds, say Thank you every time you take a step.
  16. Practice my heart magic.
  17. Take 5 deep breaths during the day and say, Thank you for the magical air that I breathe.
  18. Before going to bed, take your magic rock/gratitude rock in your hand and think about all the things to be grateful for that happened the day and say, Thank you.

With all my heart, thank you for your continued support.

Have a Blessed day.

Gratitude. Love. Positivity: 26 February 2021

Good day friends,

“When it comes to love relationships, often people think that they want a particular person. But if you think about it deeply, it is not really the particular person that they want. What they really want is to be blissfully happy with the perfect person. Yet still they try and tell the Universe WHO that person is. If the Universe isn’t delivering, then the message from the Universe is loud and clear: “I just checked twenty years ahead, and the bliss and happiness you deserve will not happen in this relationship.”

Why is it that we think we know more than The One who can see everything?”

~ Daily Teachings by Rhonda Byrne

I believe that everybody you meet and even have a relationship with is part of the plan the Universe has for you to grow and learn. No one knows what is going to happen tomorrow, one moment someone is in your life, and the next it is as if they never existed… In my case it works like that anyway.

The Universe knows what I want in my “perfect person and relationship”.

Have a fabulous day and remember life is short, live everyday as if there is no tomorrow.

🤗Big Virtual Hug

The Four Agreements: Part 4

Good day friends,

Over the next few weeks, I am reading, The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz, and just give you a summary of what I read and how I understand it. I am just an ordinary person, and I find it interesting how different people see the world. This is not based on any typical religion. I hope you find it as interesting as I did. Please keep an open mind.

Domestication and the Dream of the Planet: Part 2

“Attention is the ability we have to discriminate and to focus only on that which we want to perceive.”

The Four Agreements by Don Migual Ruiz


Through repetition, the people hooked our attention and put information into our minds. By paying attention, we learned how to behave. What to believe and what not to. We have learned what is acceptable and what is not. What is good and bad. What is beautiful and what is ugly. We also learned the difference between right and wrong.

Everywhere we go, we listen to what the people are teaching us. The same happens in the family dynamic. Mom, Dad, brothers, and sisters are all trying to get your attention. We also learn how to get attention from other humans. We also become very competitive. Children seek the attention of their parents, teachers, and friends. The need for attention becomes very strong, and it never stops.

My thoughts on the above.

We are like sponges. We gather information in school, at Church, from our parents and friends. In the modern age we are also hooked by Television, Social Media and the Internet. We then decide what is acceptable for us. Every person has his or her own perception.

Children will do different things to get attention. They love the praise they get. Some parents even award their children with gifts or money. Others will resort to something wrong to get attention.

We as humans are very competitive and we would hurt others just to get noticed.

With all my heart, thank you for your continued support.

Have a Blessed day.

The Four Agreements: Part 3

Good day friends,

Over the next few weeks I am going to read The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz and just give you a summary of what I read and how I understand it. I am just a normal person and I find it interesting how different people see the world. This is not based on any typical religion. I hope you find it as interesting as I did. Please keep an open mind.

Below is the first few paragraphs of the next chapter. I tried to do a summary of it but then it will only say. Our whole life is just a dream and with Covid for some it’s a nightmare…

Domestication and the Dream of the Planet: Part 1

“What you are seeing and hearing right now is nothing but a dream. You are dreaming right now at this moment. You are dreaming with the brain awake.
Dreaming is the main function of the mind, and the mind dreams twenty-four hours a day. It dreams when the brain is awake, and it also dreams when the brain is asleep. The difference is that when the brain is awake, there is a material frame that makes us perceive things in a linear way. When we go to sleep we do not have the frame, and the dream has the tendency to change constantly.
Humans are dreaming all the time. Before we were born the humans before us created a big outside dream that we will call society’s dream or the dream of the planet. The dream of the planet is the collective dream of billions of smaller, personal dreams, which together create a dream of a family, a dream of a community, a dream of a city, a dream of a country, and finally a dream of the whole humanity. The dream of the planet includes all of society’s rules, its beliefs, its laws, its religions, its different cultures and ways to be. Its governments, schools, social events, and holidays.”

The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz

What do I think the author is trying to say to us? I find it difficult to put my thoughts on paper. It is all over the place right now. When I first read this book, I found this chapter confusing. Still do, but this is my thoughts on the above. We are awake and dreaming. Does dreaming refer to thinking? Even when I go to bed at night, my brain does not “switch off” I am always thinking. I get the weirdest dreams at night, I dream of places I have not even seen before or read about . Is that a dream within a dream? I do not always go with what society feels is the way to do things. Does this mean that my dream is different from societies? I also want to live in peace, I believe that respect and good manners are a important part of life. But when you look at the world a big part of humanity does not have respect or good manners?

I would love to hear some of your thoughts on this. Like I said I don’t think I really understand what the author is trying to say, but I am keeping an open mind.

With all my heart, thank you for your continued support.

Have a Blessed day.

The Gratitude Rock: 22 February 2021

28 Weeks of practicing Gratitude….

Look for a smooth rock that will fit comfortably in the palm of your hand. This is your gratitude rock.

Place it by your bedside and at night when you go to bed take the gratitude rock hold it tight in your hand and think about all the things that happened during the day that made you grateful. Single out one that means the most to you and say Thank you. You can take your Gratitude rock with you during the day and put it on your desk too. When I go out I put mine in one of my pockets, and when I am truly grateful for something I put my hand in my pocket hold my gratitude rock and say thank you three times.

Do not forget to count your blessings in the morning and throughout your day.
