Amazing book


You mean this mandala is based on the book right?all four promises?.i am gonna listen to the audiobook now :face_with_hand_over_mouth::face_with_hand_over_mouth:



That was me as a child.


Once you implement these agreements into your life it will change you.

I just realized that i have this book in my house library
This must be a sign!


The book tells you to read it :smiley:


Read it and implement it with mandala


This mandala will go very well with “I Know You” mandala cos i just found some similarities between them in don Miguel Ruiz’s book on page 35.
Well done i must say!


Yes, a good book worth reading. But it’s not easy to keep up with it all the time. And I’ve found for myself that I still sometimes take things personally that others say. Just integrating what you don’t take personally anymore prevents others from pushing your buttons. Thus, all verbal attacks come to nothing.
But the idea of ​​proposing this as a mandala came to me while reading the endless discussions in the thread for other YouTube channels.


Well I think this mandala is underestimated by many. It is based on the wisdom of a book written by a Toltec shaman, which deals with 4 principles that he called a promise. So 4 principles that can change your life. The book title is “The Four Promises” just like the mandala. A book everyone should read. But as it is, you’ve read it, you’re motivated to stick to it, but after a few weeks you’ve forgotten everything.

  1. Be impeccable with your word. It makes you aware of what kind of words you are using. Hmm, one wonders what is the use of this. Swearing, swearwords and insulting others have a disastrous side effect. Since our subconscious makes no distinction between us and others, every word you use is in principle addressed to yourself. Even if our minds may see it differently. When I say he over there is such a fool. If my subconscious understands I am a fool, now what you can manifest with it in your life you can certainly imagine. So if you wish someone a “nice day” you program yourself to have a nice day. The mandala internalizes over time that you are aware of what you are saying. What is the name of a well-known saying: In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God. So consider the words you speak have power.

  2. Don’t take anything personally! How often do we take something personally even though it was only said casually. We are often hurt, especially in family situations. If it is meant maliciously, the Chaemelon Mandala in front of it helps. But so often it is not meant to be malicious or hurtful and still it hurts inside. Here the mandala can be a real balm. Not taking anything personally is a blessing, simply not reacting when one is insulted.

  3. Don’t make assumptions! This is a game that the mind likes to play. And I have to say that it is pretty much the most superfluous thing to pass your time with. So often we have unnecessary assumptions that completely ignore reality. The colleague did not say hello when he passed you and the game starts. Does he not like me anymore? Is he upset with me etc? And so we play through hundreds of scenarios and probably not one will be the truth. He probably didn’t even notice you because worries were going around in his head. Just being freed from this curse makes life so much easier. Katy Byron’s work “The Work” is also quite helpful for this aspect. But the mandala does this process for us. How much more free can our mind be by dealing with the things that are important to you.

  4. Always do your best! Now that almost explains itself. But how often in our life do we give our best? Isn’t there a lot just half-heartedly?

Now I can’t say how well it works because of Corona, I can’t say how well and quickly it works because I live more like a hermit. But in the meantime it will soon be possible to relax and meet more people again, then it will show how valuable this mandala really is.


This is a great description of the benefits
