|The 1st Agreement - [Be Impeccable With Your Word]|
Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or
to gossip about others. Use the power of the word in the direction of truth and love.
The first agreement is the most important one and also the most difficult one to honor. It is
very, very powerful.
Through the word you express your creative power. It is through the word that you manifest
everything. What you dream, what you feel, and what you really are.
The word is a force; it is the power you have to express and communicate, to think, and thereby
to create the events in your life. But like a sword with two edges, your word can create the
most beautiful dream, or your word can destroy everything around you.
The word is so powerful that one word can change a life or destroy the lives of millions of
people. Hitler’s word, based on fear-generated beliefs and agreements, will be remembered for
During our domestication, our parents and siblings gave their opinions about us without even
thinking. We believed these opinions and we lived in fear over these opinions, like not being
good at swimming or writing.
By hooking our attention, the word can enter our mind and change a whole belief for better or
worse. For example: You may believe you are stupid. And you may have believed this for as
long as you can remember. This belief may cause you to do a lot of things just to ensure that
you are stupid. Then one day, someone hooks your attention and using the word, let’s you
know that you are not stupid. You believe what the person says and make a new agreement. As
a result you no longer feel or act, and someone hooks your attention and says, “Yes, you are
really the most stupid person I have ever met,” the agreement will be reinforced and become
Impeccability means “without sin”. A sin is anything that you do which goes against yourself. You
go against yourself when you judge or blame yourself for anything. Being without sin is exactly
the opposite. Being impeccable is not going against yourself. You take responsibility for your
actions, but you do not judge or blame yourself.
Sin begins with rejection of yourself. Self-rejection is the biggest sin that you can commit.
If I love myself I will express that love in my interactions with you, and then I am being
impeccable with the word, because that action will produce a like reaction. If I love you, then
you will love me.
Being impeccable with your word is the correct use of your energy; it means to use your energy
in the direction of truth and love for yourself. If you make an agreement with yourself to be
impeccable with your word, just with that intention, the truth will manifest through you and
clean all the emotional poison that exits within you. But making this agreement is difficult
because we have learned to do precisely the opposite.
We must begin to understand what the word is and what the word does. If you understand the
first agreement, be impeccable with your word, you begin to see all the changes that can
happen in your life. Changes first in the way you deal with yourself, and later in the way you
deal with other people, especially those you love the most.
If we adopt the first agreement, and become impeccable with our word, any emotional poison
will eventually be cleaned from our mind and from our communication in our personal
Impeccability of the word will also give you immunity from anyone putting a negative spell on
you. You will receive a negative idea if your mind is fertile ground for that idea.
You can measure the impeccability of your word by your level of self-love. How much you love
yourself and how you feel about yourself is directly proportionate to the quality and integrity of
your word. When you are impeccable with your word, you feel good; you feel happy and at
It is up to you to make this agreement with yourself: I am impeccable with my word. Nurture
this seed, as it grows in your mind, it will generate more seeds of love to replace the seeds of
fear. This first agreement will change the kind of seeds your mind is fertile for.
Be impeccable with your word. This is the first agreement that you should make if you want to
be free, if you want to be happy.
Use the word to share your love, beginning with yourself. Use the word to break all those
teeny, tiny agreements that make you suffer.
Impeccability of the word can lead you to personal freedom, to huge success and abundance; it
can take away all fear and transform it into joy and love.
