don Miguel Ruiz Jr.

Today, we welcome Toltec Master of Transformation and author, don Miguel Ruiz Jr. to Vagina Chronicles Podcast. Miguel Jr. is the son of don Miguel Ruiz, author of the New York Times bestseller The Four Agreements… If you feel the way we feel about The Four Agreements, wait until you listen to this fantastic, uplifting interview.

In his recently released book, The Five Levels of Attachment: Toltec Wisdom for a Modern World, Miguel explains how attachment to our beliefs can move us from a preference to fanaticism and how we all move in and out of the different levels of attachment throughout our lives.

Miguel shows us the freedom in noticing our attachments without judgement. He shares how we can get in touch with our authentic selves by detaching from our beliefs – about others, about the world, about truth, and about ourselves – and how this clarity leads to taking action.

086 – Overcoming the “Nice Girl” Complex

This week on Vagina Chronicles Podcast, we’re talking about raising girls to be “nice.” What does that really mean? And how does that impact us as we become women?

Around the world, the roles of women are changing… more rapidly in some places over others but, still, changing! And with these changes come more choice and opportunity for girls and women. Awesome.

But we need to make sure we are enforcing, and sometimes heralding, those changes in our ways of being. Our ways of interacting. Our ways of raising girls. So that they know they are just as worthy and deserving of being who they are as their male counterparts are being raised to believe.

Being raised to be a “good girl” or a “nice girl” can create issues for women if it leads them to believe that their opinions matter less or that they should defer to everyone else around them in order to be perceived as “nice.”

In this episode, we discuss how kindness and decency are just facets of women (and men…humans, really) and how we should encourage interity and powerful choice in our daughters. And in ourselves, if we need to release “nice girl” programming that is holding us back.
