Today I am going to take the second agreement from the book “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz and relate it to my understanding of the Law of Attraction. If you haven’t read Part 2 of this series, you can click HERE to see it before you read this post. In his book, the author discusses how we inherit certain beliefs as we grow from infancy into adulthood. The beliefs we hold come to form the basis for what we call “truth” in the world, and our behavior is vastly shaped by those beliefs. We make an agreement with ourselves to call these beliefs “reality” and to not question them in our own minds. But if you adopt new agreements, replacing the old ones, and decide to guide your life by them, your can transform your life in a powerful way. Remember that the four NEW agreements are:

1.     Be impeccable with your word.

2.     Don’t take anything personally.

3.     Don’t make assumptions.

4.     Always do your best.

The second agreement, “Don’t Take Anything Personally” seems straight forward and easy to understand. No matter how things go for you, this agreement guides you to take other people’s intentions and reactions out of your personal vibrational equation. In other words, what people think about you is really none of your business. Yet you might worry that you could be perceived as insensitive if you really don’t care about what others think of you. This is true, but this worry misses the greater point of this agreement.

It is possible to be sensitive and aware of the feelings of others without allowing yourself to lose your personal connection to Source Energy. When you take things personally, you assign blame where no blame needs to be assigned. No matter what people do to you or for you, they are always living their life from their own personal vantage point. The decisions they make are all in relation to their personal perceptions and assumptions. They are always working within the Law of Attraction, and they are always getting a match to their own vibrational offerings. So when they do anything, it is always in relation to their own personal crossroad of experience…not in exclusive relation to YOU.

When you take things personally, you assume that your influence on another is a greater influence than their own thoughts, feelings, and actions…and this simply is not true. You are never responsible for the choices that others make, even if you feel like you are. It is much easier to decide that you will take responsibility for your own thoughts, feelings, and actions, and let others do the same. Make peace with where you are while you allow others to be who they are as well. Free yourself from the feelings of disconnection that come when you think others have wronged you in some way. It’s not personal, it’s just what happened.

The Law of Attraction always matches your vibration and gives you more of what you focus upon. When you take things personally, you lose your sense of higher, better-feeling connection to who you really are. You lose your own sense of direction, and you start to second-guess what you need to do to make the other person happy, or what to do back if they have wronged you in some way. This is all a waste of time and energy. Instead, decide that what others do is not a factor in your own ability to be connected to Source, and that you will maintain your happiness even when the going gets tough. Give the benefit of the doubt by remembering that it’s never personal. Then, once you release the chains of worry, you can find your center and thrive again.

Start today by just noticing when you take something personally. You will feel it in your vibration, and you will be able to consciously identify what seemed to make you feel that way. Then take the other person out of the equation by remembering that they didn’t tailor their actions as a personal attack on you, but rather they made the best decision for their own personal journey. There is much freedom gained when you adopt this agreement. Allow yourself to master it, and enjoy this most amazing day! Chris-GP
