The Four Agreements of Don Miguel Ruiz: a guide to identifying psychotherapy issues

4 agreements post face 622904 640
* Sorting out the swirl of fact, belief, projection, weaknesses and strengths

Don Miguel Ruiz states four agreements between us and the world that can bring joy, satisfaction, health, good relationships and success to our lives. Stating these agreements as clearly as he does gives us the gift of facing them. When we face them, we have an opportunity to see how we do and do not bring these agreements into our lives on a regular basis. That gives us the opportunity to see what’s required to improve our lives. It’s a wonderful guide to identifying issues that can be explored and addressed in psychotherapy.

What follows are each of his agreements and the psychological issues that might be indicated in psychotherapy work when you have difficulty honoring them.

  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.

Eating Disorder Recovery, Health and Personal Growth. How Dreams Can Help

This is the story of how one person, with Jesus imagery in her dream, built a bridge to her daughter during a time of conflict.

Q: Why are inner explorations and investigations of dream images called work?

A:  Because we are construction workers. We build bridges.  We gather raw  materials from our psyches, discover their relevance and shape them to form bridges between our unconscious and conscious. We create a means of transporting what is deep within us to our day to day perceptions.  We learn to tolerate emotional disruption as we adjust to greater meaning and understanding in our lives and the world.

Meaning of Your Dreams: Eating disorders keep you on the surface. Dreams go deep. How to understand and benefit from your dream images

treasure chest victorian 2745 640* Eating disorder recovery requires deep work. Suppose this treasure was your dream image. How would you understand it? Would you go surface or deep?

If you attend to your image and wonder about it you have an opportunity to go more deeply into the meaning this image holds for you. This is more than an intellectual exercise. Feelings lost or unknown, forgotten memories and physical sensations echoing your past come into consciousness. What your eating disorder represses has an opportunity to ascend to awareness. That's when you have a genuine healing opportunity.

Stumbling Block Alert: Part 6 on Your Path to Joy

joy stumbling block business 19148 640*Someone may call you to old behaviors. You may call (or want to) so you can return to old ways. Or you'll feel both internally.

On your path to joy be prepared for pushback. You are making time for reading, exploring, taking classes, attending seminars and concerts, writing and communicating with new people. You have disrupted the pattern of what was your ordinary day.

Others in your life may want to interrupt your set times for reading or walking or writing or visiting places in the community. You will need to defend your boundaries.

You may be the one who wants to postpone or cut short your explorations and new activities to revert to your old patterns. Moving on your new choices is sometimes fun and sometimes frightening. Your feelings of isolation, dullness, bewilderment
