Today I am going to take the first 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 1 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 first agreement, “Be impeccable with your word” is not easy to understand at first.

impeccable |imˈpekəbəl|
(of behavior, performance, or appearance) in accordance with the highest standards of propriety; faultless : a man of impeccable character.
• rare Theology not liable to sin.

Does it mean that you have to only use certain words, or that you have to monitor your speech in ways that feel unnatural? Not at all. If you think about the Law of Attraction, and if you remember that LoA responds to your vibration, the “word” takes on a more profound meaning. The words you think to yourself, and that you speak to others, create a vibrational average that we call your point of attraction. When your thoughts and words are in alignment with your Source Energy, then you feel a strong connection and flow which is translated into an experience of feeling good. Another way to say this is: if you use words that align with Source, you feel good. In fact, if you feel emotions that feel less-than-good, you can be sure that you have been practicing thoughts that are not aligning with your Source.

So what does Source Energy think about you and anyone in this reality? That is the million-dollar question, because it is the key to feeling good, being in the flow of life, attracting the life you want, and using the magic of Law of Attraction to manifest everything you have been wanting. Source Energy loves you. It knows that you are good, and it knows that you are worthy. It sees the best in others, it sees the best in you, and it knows that you are perfect in your eternal imperfection. It rejoices every time you expand and become more than you were. It understands that the purpose of life is joy and expansion. It uplifts, loves, expands, and celebrates every moment. Get in the flow of Source, and you feel good. Feel good more of the time, and you attract more things that help you feel good. It is a cycle of thinking and feeling that has no upper limit…but you have to think like your Source…and hence you must agree to “Be impeccable with your word.”

Being impeccable with my word means, to me, doing my best to love myself and everyone I come into contact with. It means abandoning “put down” thinking that normally accompanies gossip. It means reaching for a better-feeling thought more of the time. It means leaving behind preconceptions of myself and others in exchange for vibrational offerings that align more and more with what my Source thinks. It implies that I look for the best in every situation. If you are impeccable with your word, you will not suddenly be perfect. But you will make a new agreement with yourself that will help you feel better and better. You have no eternal cosmic commitment to be disconnected, feeling bad, or a negative realist. You can choose to think the way that feels best, and the door through which you must walk is via your personal word.

I hope this helps you decipher this first agreement a little. I am grateful for this information, and also for the opportunity to bring it to you through my perspective. Happy New Year, be well, and enjoy this most amazing day!  Chris-GP
