don Jose Ruiz on The Fifth Agreement

don Jose Ruiz is the international bestselling author of The Fifth Agreement. As a Toltec Master of Transformation & Modern day Shaman, he has dedicated his life to sharing the wisdom of the ancient Toltec through his books, lectures, and journeys to sacred sites around the world. Other books include: Ripples of Wisdom, My Good Friend The Rattlesnake, The Wisdom of the Shamans, and the newly released The Medicine Bag: Shamanic Rituals & Ceremonies for Personal Transformation.

My dear friend, this was one of the more enlightening conversations. I am so grateful to be able to share Jose’s incredible light and brilliance that spans from the Toltec ancient wisdom, growing up with father Don Miguel Ruiz, author of The Four Agreements, and living a life of deep awareness, surrender and acceptance. His words are like a solvent for a wound and will help you to see all that’s going on from a new optimistic lens. Jose keys into the deep connection and oneness we share with one another and divine mother earth. I can’t wait to share his wisdom with you and invite you to also watch this interview on YouTube so you can take in Jose’s high vibrational essence and powerful light.

Here are some of the beautiful nuggets of wisdom from our conversation:

  1. Jose talked about the Toltec tradition and how it is all about humanity as one being. The most powerful aspect of this wise ancient tradition is that there is nothing for us to learn in our life, it is about unlearning everything. 
  2. The way to unshackle yourself from the conditioned beliefs stemming from years of society based on overactive egos is to go into your heart and find your own heart medicine. For Jose this is through acceptance, surrender and recreating himself. 
  3. We don’t need more stuff, we need to release more stuff and open to our heart.
  4. The 5th Agreement is about being skeptical of your own negativity. Jose talked about the prayer he says daily is to be protected from his own mind.
  5. We are meant to become the love of our own life and to fall in love with ourselves, as we are connected directly to divine mother earth.
