2:41 pm - Quantum Shaman™ - Make Contact With Your Higher Self

Forwarded from quantumshaman

An Intimate & Transformational Weekend
with author, Nagual woman & Quantum Shaman™

NOW, for the first time, you are invited to come and join Della Van Hise for a personal retreat in the High Desert of California - an intimate weekend for seekers of Knowledge at all levels of advancement on the path of the heart, an opportunity to step into the power of your own infinite awareness and **Make Contact With Your Higher Self!**

When ...... January 18 - 20, 2008
Where ..... Joshua Tree, CA

Della Van Hise is the creator of the Quantum Shaman™ website,
as well as the author of the acclaimed
QUANTUM SHAMAN: Diary of a Nagual Woman.

Della has been working with her double, Orlando, for over 20 years, and is now assisting others on the path to make a similar connection with their own infinite and eternal awareness. The result is what Della has come to call a "singularity of consciousness" - a spiritually Whole and indestructible body of energy which is the state of quantum immortality - the state which the Toltecs referred to as "the totality of oneself."

Acting as a spiritual catalyst and energetic facilitator, Della and Orlando engage with participants at the level of the energy body - through Dreaming, shifts of energy at the level of the assemblage point, and comprehensive hands-on workshops which enable the seeker to truly begin to make contact with his or her own unique connection to Silent Knowing. This is where the love affair with the infinite self begins, bringing us into resonant alignment with what it means to "know thyself."

It begins within.


If you have enjoyed the works of Carlos Castaneda or Don Miguel Ruiz, or if you have simply come to a point in your life where you are ready to surrender to Spirit and embrace your own immortal awareness, this is a weekend you cannot afford to miss!

"Love is the reason. Intent is the means to manifest the
reason wholly and energetically.
That manifestation is the totality of yourself. "

Orlando - August 1, 2007

This may not be the best place to ask a question like this, but I was wondering if there's anything in the Four Agreements that can help in dealing with potential health problems... particularly that time between knowing something is wrong and finding out what it is. All I've come up with is don't make assumptions about what's wrong so you don't work yourself up over nothing, the same way you do in relationships. Any other advice?

My bf and I just got The 4 Agreements. We're ecstatic to find something that so succinctly sums up so many different ideas to optimize your life and happiness. We have a ton of Tony Robbins, Eckhart Tolle, Buddhist teaching, etc. We're big into self-improvement and betterment. But anyhow, just wanted to stop by and say Hello.

I have a few LJ friends who've also just been introduced. I'll send them along here! :-) If only the rest of the world knew...

8:59 pm - How are you doing it?

So how do you go about integrating the Four Agreements into your life?

One at a time until it sticks and then move to the next?

Or all four of them at once?

I'm really curious how you all are doing! 

(this community seems very inactive, I do hope it will become more busy soon again!)

2:03 pm - The Four Agreements...

Don't Take Anything Personally
Love and Respect Yourself: You are never responsible for the actions of others, but you are responsible for you. If someone is not treating you with love and respect, it is a gift if they walk away from you. You may hurt for awhile, but your heart will eventually heal.

Don't Make Assumptions
Communicate with Clarity: Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness, and drama. If all humans would communicate with impeccability of the word, all of our relationships would change. There would be no wars, no violence, no misunderstandings.

Be Impeccable with Your Word
Create a Beautiful Dream: Your word can create the most beautiful dream, or your word can destroy everything around you. Impeccability of the word only creates beauty, love, and heaven on earth.

Always Do Your Best
Honour Yourself: Honour the man or woman that you are. Take the risk to express your dream. Taking action is about living fully and expressing what you are.

- Don Miguel Ruiz

I know I am finding it necessary for myself to revisit The Four Agreements. I thought I would share as it feels like they might help other's as well.

3:40 am - Hi
ilikehindimusic Do you remember when you first heard about 'The Four Agreements' book? What made you finally read it for the first time?

I first heard about it on the 'Oprah' show. I don't remember when but I'm guessing at the end of the 1990's since the book's copyright is 1997. I wonder if the concept of the 4 agreements came out before the book was written? I eventually put it on a list of books to read.

My last therapist (she's a art therapist) had the book with her at one of our sessions. She didn't want to give me her copy but she didn't always get them back! So I bought my own copy. I read parts of it so far.

What's your story?

6:14 pm - Hi Everyone
ilikehindimusic I joined this community last year. I have read all the posts in here that I was interested in.

This is my first post. I bought 'The Four Agreements' earlier this year. I haven't read it all yet but will do that. I have this bad habit when it comes to reading non fiction. Instead of reading it page by page I jump back and forth. There is a resistance to get into the books in a deep way.

I was wondering does anyone still read and post in here? If I wanted to discuss something will I get any responses? 8o(

Bye for now

PS: I am also a member of the other '4 agreements' LJ community

6:37 am - Eliminating Belief Systems

lisa6 posted on 7/19/04:
  • Hi =^^=
    I been reading the Four Agreements for quite some time now, but recently something came up. When Don says in Mastery of Love "Don't believe me, don't believe them and don't believe yourself" ((That's how I remember it)). Are we able to trust him? Probably most of you out there thought of this but I wanted to talk it out ^^ A debate of it.

    Do you think we are able to trust him and the Four Agreements? ...

9:19 am - Be Impeccable with Your Word

I've been working on this agreement for quite some time. I'm finding it difficult to avoid saying the usual seemingly harmless negative thoughts that come to mind, no matter how innocent or trivial they seem. However, reading this chapter in the book helped me to become more aware of it, and I have never been so aware of the negativity that comes out of my mouth. I never thought of myself as a negative person, but I sure say a lot of negative things, even just in jest or sarcastically.

So, I'm writing a post to this group in the hopes of putting my thoughts in words and to hopefully see what everyone else things or thought of this chapter of the book.

Thank you :)

Hello my name is Stephanie and I have NOT been living The Four Agreements as well as I think I'm capable of. And I've been paying the consequences for it. I immediately looked for this on LJ so I could amend this and get the message on my friends list as much as possible.

I will be doing my best to follow the tenents of the four agreements. It's important to me to do so and I know that it's an important part of maintaining the path that I'm on right now.

Thank you for your presence. I'm looking forward to reading and posting in this community.

current mood: good

12:54 am - crashing

i just watched Crash for the first time. i was resistant to watching it - i couldn't tell you the reason because i don't believe there was one. maybe my unconscious not wanting to "go there".

anyway. the long and short of it is that the movie really hit home for me tonight that what other people do is NOT about me. in the four agreements book, miguels says something to the effect of - if someone walks up and shoots you on the street, don't take it personally, it really wasn't about you.

that was an extreme example that i didn't truly understand until after watching Crash.

in the Mastery of Love, he talks about never being good enough for ourselves. i wonder how many of us fall into that. we're here, we're reading and trying each day to be compassionate and have integrity and not judge others and not take things personally - but how often do we feel like we let ourselves down because we're just not good enough yet?

i'm noticing it's daily. every day i say - well, i slipped up there. i could have handled that situation better. sometimes i even get a little depressed that i'm just not as good or perfect as i'm striving to be.

usually i try to let yesterday be yesterday. or this morning was this morning. and it is getting easier - but it's still there in the back of my mind. even as i write this - why can't i be more loving, tolerant, etc.

tomorrow is another day. and in a moment, i will be a new person.

watching the crash

8:09 am - [Semi-dailyreflections] responsibility and intent

Do you want to be right or do you want to be happy? Do you want the
world to change so you can feel safe and happy? Are you willing to
embrace your responsibility? Are you willing to use your ability to
respond to choose love instead of fear?

What is your intent? So often we forget that we create our experience
of life with our filter system - with our beliefs, agreements and
assumptions. Life is and then we tell ourselves a story. Our story
either adds more love or fear to the world. Is your intent to hold
onto your story or to remember how to reposn always from love?

If you want a world of peace add only love. Every event in life is
either loving or a cry for love - so love - just love.

With love and magic from England,

10:36 am - The 4 Agreements

Be Impeccable With Your Word

I guess this is the one I have the most trouble with at times, not in regards to others, that I manage ok... but more in regards to my word on or about me, myself... how I view myself, speak about myself, how I think and feel...

I know I need to be more positive, have more self confidence and belief, trust in myself and my judgement and decisions, stop second guessing myself, and kicking myself over past choices or decisions (or lack of)

I know like anyone, I am not perfect, but like everyone else out there I still have my good points, and I know, deep down, that the good by far outweighs any bad... and now is the time to not just keep saying that and reminding myself of that, but to actually listen and start believing it...

I don't want to totally silence that negative, doubting voice that's there in my mind, cause I do believe it can help us and do some good, bring to light some areas of ourselves that need work and improvement... but its definitely time to get it under control, keep a lid on it, and put all its words into context...

That old style mantra of "I am ok, I am worthy, I am special" etc etc may sound a little cheesy, but it is something we do all need to keep reminding ourselves at times...

So, for the next period working forward, I am going to work on what I say, stopping and examining it before I say it or type it or send it or whatever... and make sure the word is not only impeccable and good towards others, but myself as well *S*

Oh and if any of you see me slipping into old habits, feel free to give me a poke or a kick up the backside or whatever lol

current mood: optimistic

8:28 am

Why does my head toy with me so much. Why does the mentioning of one little thing put me on the deffensive end and make me so upset. I was so angry last night before I fell asleep. But at what? I don't know. I can't even tell you. I was angry with my dad for not being a friend this summer. For disapointing me more and more. But the only reason that I think this is because of what I expect from him. I can't expect things of people and think badly of them. That will make me feel badly and expect things of myself. And then I was angry that I can't show Matt as good a time this weekend as I think he wants. And then I think about what me and Dr. Kenny talk about. And how I am not anywhere near fixed yet. And now I feel even more anxious, and I feel tears welling up in my eyes, but I am at work and need to forget about this for at least 7 more hours. But I don't think thats good for myself. And I have another thing worrying me, but I can't share it because I think that it is something that you keep to yourself. And the cause of it is probably the worrying that I do more and more of lately. But I can't even convince myself of that.

I am becoming sad with myself right now, but I can't cry here, even though I want to.

I need more than ever right now for you to show me that im going to be ok...

I feel an attack wanting to happen, but i need to make it go away before it does.

what's wrong with me?

current mood: crying inside

10:07 pm - Dreaming the Dream

On Saturday, two of my friends lost their baby daughter. She was 11 months old when she died. She had been struggling with a heart condition since birth, and after several operations, simply lost the strength to keep fighting.

She had been rallying back from her final surgery when her right lung collapsed. The doctors had to put her on a respirator. While she was on the respirator, she suffered two minor strokes.

I understand now that we are all connected. This child wasn't even mine, but she was a part of me. I feel loss at her death. I feel useless and stupid because I don't have any words to help comfort her parents. Nobody should have to see their infant child die. I know that she isn't "gone." I know she's still a part of all of us. But I feel regret that she never got a chance to dream her own dream.

current mood: grieving

2:36 pm - NEWBIE

The 4 argeements was just recomnded to me by my psychologist. The reason I see him is for anxiety and panic disorder. The only times i experience anxiety is on the soccer field.

I'm suppose to play a game this afternoon, but I have been playing horribly because of some fear that I can't get out of my head. Soccer is whats expected of me by friends, family, and myself. But last week I was told I wasn't good enough anymore. This brought mixed feelings. Most were feeling of anxiety though. My coach wants me to play this afternoon, but the more and more I think about it, I don't want to go. i'm so confused at what I am feeling.

One part of me says that I should go, because I commited to this soccer team and I have to be there if I said that I would. Another part of me says that this is not what I like. If I go somewhere I don't want to be I'm not going to be happy. But will I then be disapointed in myself for not going and putting up with it and probably playing badly again.

I haven't read much of the book so far. Maybe this is why I can't help myself out at this point.

Any words of advise? or insight into why my head is pulling me in two different directions?

current mood: distressed

7:38 am - Okay...all I have to say is WOW....have to think about that one.

When you absolutely know the person is wrong, out of line, rude, being unfair, the whole situation is unjust or just plain evil. When there is no doubt in your mind you are right. Look at the Nazis you certainly can't just stand by and do nothing. Or what about big corporations that are raping the land just for profit and leaving the land uninhabitable? It is just wrong that they are destroying our way of life.
There certainly are convincing arguments that there is a great deal of injustice in the world. And how does 'knowing' that make you feel? Does being right about those things generate feelings of inner peace and love? Do you sleep better when you view the world that way?
What if, instead of judging what is you just accepted the events without attaching emotions to them? Let them just be events. What if you viewed everything as an opportinunity for spirits to come together and experience the results of their filter system? What if you simply decided to be happy - instead of being right you chose to be happy? Chances are the actions you take will be more fruitful and generate more peace and love for you and those around you.
With love,

Life is but a dream - sweet dreams!
