The Toltec Tradition

Temple of the Moon in Teotihuacan

The Toltec Tradition is a way of life. It is a way of life that offers you the complete freedom to be your authentic self. The path of change is unique to each of us and I have found that the Toltec tradition can assist each and every person in finding his or her own inner truth, leading to a new way of being. This way of being can allow you to experience a life free of limitations. It is a path that can lead you to personal freedom and a life based on love rather than fear. The Toltec tradition, as I teach it, is not merely a bunch of concepts. It is an approach to living – an approach that, if practiced, will undoubtedly change your life completely and truly set you free.

After the Toltec conquered the city of Teotihuacán, around 700 AD, a secret society formed within the Teotihuacán civilization dedicated to preserving the knowledge of the wise ones. I have come to call them the “Ancient Ones.” The Ancient Ones were a race of indigenous people who were recognized as teachers of spirituality, science, and the arts. This secret society embraced the ideals of priestly rule and peaceful behavior for which the city of Teotihuacán was formally known. The apprentices who carried this wisdom forward became known as “men and women of knowledge.”

According to the Toltec, the Ancient Ones understood the illusionary nature of reality. They realized that life was limitless and that it was our mind’s perspective of reality that caused all our suffering and limitations. They knew all of life was part of a great mystery and that there was no way to separate the secular from the sacred nor science from spirit. To a “normal” person, they appeared to be magicians or wizards because they could perform great feats such as heal the sick and affecting the weather. They could also manifest material objects and influence time.

After the Spanish conquest in the late 1500′s, the knowledge became a carefully guarded secret passed that was passed down and subtly altered (like a great family recipe) through various family and community lineages. Today, this information is slowly emerging and being shared more openly.

The Toltec tradition is a wonderful journey, a journey in which you will find your true self and have the opportunity to re-create your life. It is a blueprint for living that shows you how to experience life in a limitless manner. This tradition will show you how to make profound, permanent changes in your life. And the tools will enable you reclaim your ability to create whatever you want, whenever you want it.

My Story

It was my good fortune to meet Sister Sarita and Don Miguel Angel Ruiz, a Nagual, and Toltec Master of the Eagle Knight lineage, in the early 80′s. Miguel, himself, was still a student; I observed first hand his transformation and growth as I pursued my own. They both freely shared their knowledge, love, and wisdom with me. I am extremely grateful that when I completed my apprenticeship, I was told to go and teach in my own way. The gifts I received during the years of my apprenticeship continue to unfold and I share that wisdom through my writings and with my students.

The Toltec Tradition is based upon three masteries: awareness, transformation, and intent. As you explore this site, you will find a great deal of information on how you can apply these masteries to your own life. Applying them and using them on a daily basis is something only you can decide to do for yourself.

To truly transform your life and remove the obstacles that hold you back requires deep, personal introspection. You must be able to see your filter system before you can let it go. Certainly, you can do this on your own, but I have found that once you decide you want to achieve personal freedom, it is helpful to find a guide to assist you. As a Toltec Master, I pride myself on creating a loving and nurturing space that will allow you to go deep within yourself so you can transform your life at the deepest levels.

My ability to love, the freedom I experience, and the wisdom I can access is a direct result of my own apprenticeship. I freely share that love with all of my students and show them how to access that wisdom for themselves. I show my students how to let go of their fear and experience love instead.

Your final destination on the Toltec journey to personal freedom is a profound awareness of yourself as a divine being. Once you completely align the intent of your small self with the intent of your spirit, magic becomes an everyday occurrence. You are free to embrace the beautiful light of divinity that lives within everyone and everything.

Life is a dream. The quality of your dream depends upon whether your mind or your spirit is in control of your life. The Toltec Way is a wonderful journey in which you will find yourself and learn how to be happy no matter what is happening in your life. Freedom is a way of life well worth all the effort it requires.

If I can be of assistance in your journey, please let me know.

    I am currently reading The Four Agreements, and understand it. My question is when I was so throughly domesticated by my parents its hard to put into practice the teachings. The bad feelings and personal abuse are still there.

    • Susan says:

      It is simply a matter of retraining your mind. But in order to retrain your mind you have to be willing to take responsibility for your thoughts. You aren’t your thoughts, your mind or your body you are a limitless being of light that brings life to your body. Your spirit was NEVER domesticated it was just having fun watching the show.

      When you change your point of creation from your mind to your spirit magic and miracles happen and joy becomes your way of life.

      Shifting your point of creation and retraining your mind takes dedication and practice but it is time well spent.

      With love, Susan
