” We are all connected to each other , biologically to the earth , chemically, to the rest of the universe, atomically. I find it elevating and exhilarating to discover that we live in a universe”. ….. .There are 12 spiritual laws of the Universe : The first law is The law of Oneness : This is the foundational law which everything in the universe is connected . What we think , say and do and Believe , has a corresponding effect on others and the universe . WE are Spirits in the material world, song by the police. https://youtu.be/cjBAJpTJlZc Week 8 was an amazing realization of all of the mind principles and laws coming together . I was reading the laws of the mind and following the 7 day diet and then in my research I had my AH HA MOMENT! I didn’t understand how they worked and the depth of why they worked……
Let’s start at the Beginning
When you don’t understand the connections between the spiritual laws , you encounter obstacles . You feel lost , frustrated , and confused about your purpose . once you are aware of them you feel more confident , productive and reflective .
There are 7 universal Laws (Hermetic Philosophic Laws) by which the Universe is governed . These are based on the pursuit of Gnosticism – ancient religious ideas and systems pertaining to spiritual mysteries used by both Ancient Egypt and Greece dating back to the 1st and 2nd centuries A.D. These themes and ideas would get you killed for heresy and blasphemy at the time and were discussed in whispered tones and passed down from a master to a student in moments of extreme trust. The first three are immutable , eternal Laws and they are” Absolute “- meaning that they can never be changed ; the last four are Transitory, mutable Laws and they can be “better used” to create your ideal reality . According to the Kybalion, “the Universe exists by virtue of these Laws , which forms its framework and holds it together.” Knowledge of these laws as well as the Law of Attraction is necessary to consciously and intentionally transform your life in the direction you choose, and create your new reality and achieve true mastery “
1) Law of Mentalism ( Immutable ) The truth that “All is Mind “meaning that the “Universe itself , at an underlying level is Mental.” All phenomenon of life , matter and energy of the universe are thoughts of an infinite and Universal Mind which is of infinite intelligence and the nature of conscious thought. All energy manifests from the Universal Mind. This Principle explains the true nature of “ENERGY,POWER, and MATTER. Your reality is a manifestation of your mind . This is true MIND POWER.
The old Hermetic masters wrote:
” He who grasps the truth of the Mental Nature of the Universe is well advanced on the Path to Mastery .Without this Master- Key, Mastery is impossible, and the student knocks in vain at the many doors of the temple “
2)The Law of Correspondence (Immutable ) “As above , so below ,as below , so above “. There is harmony between the physical, spiritual and mental realms. There is no separation since everything in the universe originates from one source. There is a correspondence between the laws and a phenomenon of various planes that manifest as being and life. We can solve problems by deducing what exists a layer above or below the surface to infer a pattern of what lies in -between . “KNOW THYSELF AND THOU SHALT KNOW ALL OF THE MYSTERIES OF THE GODS AND THE UNIVERSE.”
3)The Law of Vibration ( immutable) “Nothing rests,. everything vibrates. The Universe is pure energy vibrating at different frequencies . From the ALL, which is pure Spirit , down to the grossest form of matter , all is in vibration – the higher the vibration, the higher the position in the scale with the Spirit the highest . The spirit is so infinitely rapid and the lowest form of matter is so slow that they both are practically at rest. The Law of Attraction has its foundation in this law .: like energy attracts like energy . All of our thoughts and emotions are also vibrations . You can learn to control your mental vibrations at will . This is thought power.
4)The Law of Polarity ( Mutable ) : The Principle of Duality “Everything is dual , everything has poles ; everything has its pair of opposites; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree.” There are two sides to everything . Things that may appear to be opposites are really just extremes of the same thing . Heat and cold are in truth varying degrees of the same thing . This applies to light and darkness , energy and matter , love and hate ,good and evil , and fear and courage . Where does one leave off and the other one begin ?
Rising above the Law of Polarity
This law only operates in the physical and mental realm , not the spiritual.
By focusing on the good even when things appear to be going badly, then in time you will arise above the the Law. It is possible to change the level of vibrations in ones own mind and in others.
5)The law of Rhythmn( mutable) Everything flows out and in , the pendulum -swing manifests in everything right and left . This is seen in the waves of the ocean , business cycles , swaying of your thoughts , and in your personal success and failures. This law is manifest in the creation and destruction of worlds, the rise and fall of nations, and in the mental states of man . The Hermetists apply the Mental Law of Neutralization . The Masters can USE the law and consciously with the use of the WILL attain Poise and Mental Firmness not achieved by the masses who swing back and forth like a pendulum that never rests.
Rising above the Law of Rhythm
Become aware of the subtle start of the backward movement of your endeavors whether it is to improve your health , your finances, your relationships, or any goal! When you feel that the Law is starting to draw you back , do not be discouraged or fearful. Knowing that you are one with the omnipotent Universal Mind, for which nothing is impossible , keep your thoughts focused on your outcome and fight to remain positive no matter how far this transitory Law pulls you ! Even if your efforts meet with failure , find comfort that by virtue of this Law , the upward motion must start again . In time ,the backward movements become less negative and you raise yourself higher.
The Law of Cause and Effect ( Mutable ) Every cause has its effects ; every effect has its cause . Every one of your thoughts has its origin in your inner or mental world : Thought power. Every one of your thoughts , words or actions , sets a specific effect in motion, which will come to materialize over time .” Everything happens according to Law ,” and nothing ever ‘merely happens,’ and there is no such thing as Chance” – the Kybalian . SHIT DOESN’T HAPPEN ? The masses of people are carried along , obedient to environment , the wills and desires of others stronger , and other outward movements. The Masters become MOVERS They help to PLAY THE GAME OF LIFE instead of being played and moved about by others wills and environments . They obey the causation of the higher planes , but they help to RULE on their own plane .
Master the Law of Cause and Effect
To become a master of your destiny, you must master your mind. EVERYTHING in your reality is a mental creation. This law applies on all three planes of Existence : the spiritual, the mental and the physical . The spiritual plane cause and effect are instantaneous; the other two planes have a time and space lag between the cause and the eventual effect . When you focus on your chosen goals with intention using creative visualization, what you create in the physical world is automatically manifested in the spiritual world , and with PERSEVERANCE, PRACTICE , AND CONCENTRATED THOUGHT , it will come to materialize in the physical world . This is profound!!
The Law of Gender: Gender is in everything , and has its Masculine and Feminine Principles . The law works in Creation , Generation, and Regeneration. This affects the Mental ,Spiritual and Physical planes. The principle affects animals and plants, minerals , and electrons . Although these elements are ‘sexist,’ the male elements listed are energy , self reliance, logic and intellect , and female elements are love , patience , intuition , and gentleness . There is no room for sex , lust or perversion by the Hermetists .
The Law of attraction Explained
This law was not mentioned in the 7 laws but it is the most important one because it holds everything together . You attract into your life those things , circumstances and conditions that correspond with the nature of your dominant , habitual thoughts and beliefs ( conscious and subconscious ). Like energy attracts like energy . The law of vibration states: we vibrate at different frequencies. Your dominant frequency is determined by your dominant mental attitude. A positive mental attitude attracts positive experiences and circumstances . You need to have a definite purpose (DMP) which becomes a necessity (burning desire) and not a luxury . To consciously attract that which you choose into your life , you need to bring the energy of your thoughts and your actions into vibrational harmony with your choice (perfect health or success). Creative visualization is the technique to reprogram your subconscious mind and attract those circumstances that you consciously choose. The knowledge of the law empowers you to take full responsibility for your current conditions by understanding the attraction POWER OF YOUR THOUGHTS. By taking responsibility for your LIFE, you grant yourself the power to change it . There is no judgement whether a thought is good or bad. You submit your criteria via habitual thoughts and beliefs and the law brings your perfect vibratory match . You don’t have to learn to work to apply the law since it’s already working in your life . Your primary goal is to adjust your mental attitude by changing your predominant thoughts and beliefs . To master your life , you must master your mind.
Problems with the Law of Attraction :
It takes time and repeated efforts for your subconscious emotional vibrations to catch up to your new mental focus . Your negative beliefs affect your circumstances . The law of polarity has a role in creating your circumstances. The law is dual so you attract the whole spectrum of something . You can’t attract financial abundance without the potential for lack , and you can’t attract success without the potential for failure. The net effect of the two laws working together in the face of subconscious negative beliefs , is that at best your circumstances are left unchanged and that at worst , you attract more of what you don’t want. If you are attracting more of the same circumstances that you don’t want , then a negative belief rather than your mental focus is determining your outcome . How do you bypass your negative beliefs and free your subconscious mind to attract what you want to experience ?
If you have the “opposite” of what you want in life , the chances are that you probably have an existing negative belief to what you want . The laws work well together if you already have a positive belief ( running a marathon if you are already healthy ) . The answer is to place your focus on something that is by -product of what you want but not specifically what you want . Example : if you want to have lots of money , focus on giving money away or giving and receiving expensive gifts . This keeps your subconscious mind from fighting your conscious mental focus and ensures the creation of your intended outcome , as it helps you to transmute or change your negative beliefs into their positive equivalents.
What about Emersons article on compensation? After understanding the other laws I realized that the article was about the law of Polarity , the law of rhythm and the Law of Cause and effect !
These are the laws not mentioned : The law of inspired Action , the Law of perpetual transmutation of energy , The Law of Compensation and The Law of Relativity .
What does all this mean ?
Obviously we are on the proper course for training the subconscious mind with creative visualization and habits , and working on our definite purpose to make it a necessity . WE ARE ALL CONNECTED THROUGH THE UNIVERSAL MIND . This ALL makes sense and its all amazing !
