This article extends the Introduction to Part 2 to be found at the above link.
Edited from the original by spiritual authors, Shannon Kaiser and Vasavi Kumar, LMSW, MSEd, as they share their perspective on why these laws are important and how we can put them into practice: https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/the-12-universal-laws-and-how-to-practice-them
In these days of immense upheaval and confusion it might be worth slowing down and thinking about the reality of our glorious universe and how we might engage the natural energies given us freely by a power greater than us.
Some people talk of the 'Law of Attraction' but what about the Law of Polarity, the Law of Divine Oneness, or the Law of Correspondence? That's right, the Law of Attraction is but one of the 12 Universal Laws, and getting familiar with the other 11 can help us unlock a more spiritually aligned life.
The 12 Universal Laws are thought to be intrinsic, unchanging laws of our universe that ancient cultures have always intuitively known. The laws are often associated with 'Ho'oponopono', a meditation for freedom originating in ancient Hawaiian culture. Some of the laws, however, are also attributed to hermetic philosophy going back to ancient Egypt.
The list of ancient laws has withstood the test of time which Kaiser, Kumar, and plenty of others around the world, still work today. All of the laws are about mastering your life with love and joy. Here is an introduction to the themes and underpinnings of each Law, and how to apply them:
Law of Divine Oneness: The first and most foundational law of the universe is the Law of Divine Oneness, which highlights the interconnectedness of all things. It says that beyond our senses, every thought, action, and event is in some way connected to anything and everything else.
How to apply it: Kaiser notes this one can come off a bit heady, but applying it in real life entails being compassionate with others, and recognizing that we are all one. She recommends working this law by asking questions like, "How can I show more compassion and acceptance toward those I don't understand?" or "What would love do?”
Law of Vibration: At a microscopic level, everything is in constant motion, vibrating at a specific frequency. This applies to matter but also one's personal frequency as well. This law says that our vibrational frequency can inform our lived experience.
For example, "You may be able to receive money but perhaps you can't hold on to it," Kumar notes, "because vibrationally, you could be operating on a lower level."
How to apply it: If you feel the need to elevate your frequency (good vibes, anyone?), there are lots of great practices to do so, including yoga, sound bathing, and chakra work.
Law of Correspondence: This law states that patterns repeat throughout the universe, and on a personal level, our reality is a mirror of what's happening inside us at that moment. Think "As above, so below. As within, so without."
How to apply it: Kaiser's mantra for this law? It's happening for you, not to you. "If our life is chaotic and fearful," she says, "it's because there is chaos and fear within. If our life seems calm and grounded, it is because we feel peace within." In any troubling situation, she suggests asking what the situation can show you about yourself, and what requires healing within.
Law of Attraction: Undoubtedly the most talked about universal law, the law of attraction is often used for manifestation. It says that like attracts like, and you get what you focus on. Not only that, but you have to believe what you're seeking is possible to obtain. It is similar to the law of vibration in this way; it's important to learn how to vibrate at a level that attracts what you're seeking.
How to apply it: If you want love but do not give love, for example, you're sending the universe a message about your priorities. If you repeat an affirmation but don't believe what you're saying, it's useless. "When we focus on what we want versus what we don't want, it will show up in our life," says Kaiser.
Law of Inspired Action: Closely related to the law of attraction, the law of inspired action is all about taking those real, actionable steps to invite what we want into our lives. Often the inspiration comes from within. "Inspired action is that gentle, internal nudge," Kumar says. "It's not always a plan of action."
How to apply it: Practicing this law is all about slowing down, getting quiet, and creating space for internal guidance. When we let go of our need to arrange and control how things will work out and are instead open to all possibilities, it makes room for new ways of achieving the goals that we might not have considered otherwise.
Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy: This law states that on an energetic level, everything in the universe is constantly evolving or fluctuating. Every action is preceded by a thought, with thoughts themselves having the power to eventually manifest in our physical reality. Ever been around a negative person and felt your own positivity depleting? That's one example—but it can also work the other way around: Higher frequencies transmute lower ones when applied with intention.
How to apply it: Knowing this, we can actively seek to uplift negative energy around us by maintaining positive thoughts and actions.
Law of Cause and Effect: Relatively straightforward, this law highlights the direct relation between actions and events. What's important to note here, according to Kumar, is we often can't see the effects right away, but they will come back around.
How to apply it: Trust that every action will have a reaction—good or bad. "What you put out there may not come back to you at that moment, but that vibration, that energy you put out there, has a ripple effect," says Kumar. "If you're coming from a place of anger or resentment, if you put that energy out there, you'll eventually be affected as a result."
Law of Compensation: The law of compensation relates closely to the law of attraction and the law of correspondence. "You reap what you sow" is the main takeaway, with the law stating your efforts will always come back to you positively. If you are seeking something, you must contribute in some way toward your goal.
How to apply it: To work with this law in a manner that attracts (or compensates for) love and support, for example, Kaiser suggests asking yourself, "Where am I being called to serve and support others today?"
Law of Relativity: This law suggests that we are inclined to compare things in our world, but in reality, everything is neutral. Relativism exists in all things, and in the end, meaning comes down to our perspective and perception.
How to apply it: Applying this law can help us understand the tougher parts of our lives with greater compassion. For example, if we're feeling ungrateful for our living situation, it could be because we're comparing our arrangements with someone else's. Instead, we'd be better off appreciating what we have without needing to compare it to something else.
Law of Polarity: This law says that everything in life has an opposite; good and evil, love and fear, warmth and cold. The key understands these are all two sides of the same coin.
How to apply it: Kaiser works with this law through the mantra All contrast brings more clarity. If you're facing a difficult situation like a breakup or a health challenge, for example, tune into what the opposite looks like, which can reveal a new perspective or lesson.
Law of Rhythm: Cycles are a natural part of the universe. Physically, you can think about the seasons on Earth. In our own lives, we can remember that integration is just as important as growth. Kumar notes, "We expect ourselves to be one way all the time, whether we're thinking about our health or even productivity," but this is not sustainable.
How to apply it: Take note of your inner rhythms and try to work with them instead of fighting them. Are you feeling run down? Maybe it's better to give yourself some rest instead of powering through.
Law of Gender: And lastly, the law of gender has to do with the masculine and feminine energy that exists in all things. Kaiser notes that much of our society has historically operated from a masculine, "hustle and do" mentality, which doesn't allow for much room to just be.
How to apply it: Achieve your own balance between the divine masculine and divine feminine energies in order to live more authentically.
The Bottom Line: And there you have it: the 12 universal laws. Before you get too overwhelmed, integrating them into your life is more about understanding and conceptualizing them in a way that makes sense to you. Kumar notes it doesn't have to be so analytical; "Understand the concept and keep it on the back burner in your mind," she says, to learn how to work with them in day-to-day scenarios. Now that you've been introduced to these laws, chances are they'll come up in your life again and again.
To add to the excitement of this discovery I can supplement it with these 10 Essential Truths from C.S. Lewis’ – 'The Screwtape Letters'. I am not going to summarise these truths here but will leave it the reader "to seek and thou shalt find" https://theinwardturn.com/10-essential-truths-from-c-s-lewis-the-screwtape-letters/
The report made by John the son of Zebedee reads: “So Pilate entered into the governor’s palace again and called Jesus and said to him: ‘Are you the king of the Jews?’ Jesus answered: ‘Is it of your own originality that you say this, or did others tell you about me?’ Pilate answered: ‘I am not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests delivered you up to me. What did you do?’ Jesus answered: ‘My kingdom is no part of this world. If my kingdom were part of this world, my attendants would have fought that I should not be delivered up to the Jews. But, as it is, my kingdom is not from this source.’ Therefore Pilate said to him: ‘Well, then, are you a king?’ Jesus answered: ‘You yourself are saying that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone that is on the side of the truth listens to my voice.’ Pilate said to him: ‘What is truth?’”— [John 18:33-38; Matt. 27:11-14.]. When Pontius Pilate asked the question it has been answered, and the answer can be given to the honest seekers and lovers of “the truth.”
So in the 21st century, how true is our truth now? Here is a short description of what we are all up against: https://interestingengineering.com/zelenskyy-deepfake-russia-ukraine?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=mailing&utm_campaign=Newsletter-17-03-2022
