Every morning I pick an agreement out of The Four Agreements cards by Don Miguel Ruiz to hold as a theme for the day. Always Do Your Best is my favorite. When I get down on myself for something I think I did poorly at I can ask if I have done my best at that moment. I almost always can say yes. When I hold space for myself and can ask the question it gives me an opportunity to suspend judgment.
I am also following the Deepak & Oprah program on shedding weight and one of the journaling questions is to reflect on how self-judgment fragments your life and keeps you out of balance. When I read the word fragments I had this image of myself flying into a thousand pieces every time I am in self-judgment. That visual really got my attention. No wonder I have a hard time being in my body some days.
Here is a meditation video I created a while ago to help bring back fragmented pieces of self.
What is your favorite agreement of the Four Agreements and why?
