In The Mastery of Love, Don Miguel Ruiz illuminates the fear-based beliefs and assumptions that undermine love and lead to suffering and drama in our relationships. Using insightful stories to bring his message to life, Ruiz shows us how to heal our emotional wounds, recover the freedom and joy that are our births right, and restore the spirit of playfulness that is vital to loving relationships.


This amazing book is one of a kind. I learn so much from the author’s wisdom everyday and I’m so blessed to be able to read his books.

This simple yet profound book captures deep issues on mastering love, unconditional love, how to show and express love in different types of relationships and learning to heal the emotional body.

A lot of us carry deep seated trauma in us which have probably been passed down from our parents or from previous relationships which we have refused to let go of.

The Mastery of Love Highlights ways to heal and learn to fall in love with yourself first so that you can give love in a genuine and unconditional way.

The perfect book. ♥️

“Happiness can only come from inside of you and is the result of your love. When you are aware that no one else can make you happy, and that happiness is the result of your love, this becomes the greatest mastery of the Toltec: The Mastery of Love” – Don Miguel Ruiz


Definitely a 9.6/10 💫

Book Review: The Four Agreements (#22/30)

Title: The Four Agreements

Author: Don Miguel Ruiz

Published By: Amber-Allen Publishing, Inc.

Release Date: 1997

Genre: Self-help

Format: Paperback

Length:129 pages


In The Four Agreements, the author reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, the Four Agreements order a powerful code that can rapidly transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness and love.


Hands down, one of the best books I have ever read in my life.


I know I say that some books are great and all that? But hear me out, this little book is ALL THAT (big things come in little packages). I am in awe of how the author discusses these simple four agreements but shares some profound truths on them. The Four Agreements are:

  1. Be impeccable with Your Word
  2. Don’t take anything Personally
  3. Don’t make assumptions
  4. Always do your best

By reading and mindfully absorbing the profound gems contained in this book, I am learning to be careful of the words I tell myself. Words are so powerful in that they can lift you up or break you down.

I am also learning not to take things personally. What people do or say is a reflection of who they are and not who you are. It has nothing to do with you.

I am also realizing the importance of not making assumptions and communicating at every level of relationships I have with people. You do not know what goes on in the mind of another person so why assume? Communication should be present to ensure that you do not suffer needlessly.

And of course, I have been encouraged to constantly do my best, which may change at different stages in life, as change is constant, but to keep striving to do my best; in my relationships, the achievement of my goals, my career and whatever phase of life I find myself in.

This book is a blessing.


A huge 9.5/10 FO’ SURE!!!
