Understanding the Universe: 12 Universal Laws
Have you ever wondered how the world just continues to revolve, with or without us?
The sun will continue to rise and set without our asking; the moon will continue its phases without our cues; nature will continue to grow and flourish without our say so.
There are laws that govern the universe we are a part of, whether we acknowledge them or not.
Ignoring the universe's laws can result in life being a lot more exhausting than it needs to be.
This isn't just limited to spirituality; it can be experienced in all forms, including our physicality.
So, what are these universal laws?...
The universal laws are comprised of 12 essential concepts that connect together to ensure the balance and harmony of life on Earth.
Interestingly, our species alone have long caused an imbalance in our ecosystems and communities (cue climate change, famine and war). Is this due to our human nature or our ignorance to the laws that keeps things going?
Let’s find out...
The Law of Divine Oneness is the idea of our interconnectedness.
Nothing exists in a vacuum, nothing stands alone.
This couldn’t be further from the societies we see now...seeped in individuality and hoarded wealth. If this was a law that we all understood and followed, many of the division we see today would not exist. Our stubbornness to obey this law has led to mass inequality, poverty and incarceration. We have become accustomed to separation and distinction when in fact we are all connected to the same flowing source of energy.
According to Dr. Wernher Von Braun...
“The Law of Vibration is one of the basic laws of the universe. It decrees that everything moves, nothing rests, we literally live in an ocean of motion.”
The law of vibration explains that every molecule and particle in our universe is in ceaseless movement and perpetually carries energy. This applies to all parts, big or small. Our bodies themselves are comprised of molecular structures that carry energy; our brains being the most powerful resource of such.
We use our brains to think, our brains do not think for us.
The Law of Inspired Action is the conduit to which we manifest our thoughts, dreams, feelings and speech.
This is pretty self-explanatory and something we are taught in one way or another growing up. We are always told to work hard to get what we want. In essence this is true, however your actions must be inspired by the determination and drive of accomplishing whatever you choose to believe. To believe is to understand what may still be intangible.
So, sis, write that to-do list, 5-year plan or business model. Tell the universe, God, your higher-self...what it is that you truly want.
This law is linked to the first law of divine oneness in the aspect of recognising connected patterns throughout our universe, regardless of time and distance.
The importance of this law is to teach us that our outer world - anything external to ourselves - is simply a reflection of our inner world.
This profound principle illustrates that our current reality is like a mirror to what happens inside of us. Whatever your reality looks like is a result of your inner most dominant thoughts.
5. Cause and Effect
We have all heard that “what goes around, comes around”.
This law does not believe in coincidence or luck, it’s the belief that everything happens for a reason.
It specifically explains that every single action produces a reaction. After a while, we realise this is true. If you’re yet to understand this concept, there may be unlearned lessons that have not been dealt with yet.
This law is deemed as secondary or an extension to the Law of Cause and Effect; it means what is projected out is what will be received in abundance. This works both ways, so be careful!
Intention is everything.
The Law of Attraction is undoubtably the most well-known principle due to viral sensation film and book “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne. However, it is probably the most misunderstood one of them all.
It works only on the basis that you are attracting things of the same frequency as you.
Therefore, like attracts like; anything and everything you see in your life is something or someone you have attracted. Sis...faking it til' you make it, will not work.
8. Perpetual Transmutation of Energy
This law focuses on our free will to take charge of our lives and change the conditions of it how we seem fit.
Energy is constantly moving; its limitlessness is our opportunity to mould and form how we want it to be manifested materially.
We are constantly engaging in an exchange of energy, a conversation, a text, a double tap...it's all energy taking form. Our attention and our focus are how we choose to transform energy.
Everything that exists is neutral when looked at in isolation. Nothing in particular (a person, behaviour or experience) is considered good or bad until it is compared to something else. This pinpoints the futility of passing judgement, when ‘it is what its is’. This law is meant to give us clarity and perspective in the midst of tribulations, because there will always be someone who had it worse.
Everything we know is relative.
The Law of Polarity reminds us that everything has an opposite. This is how we are able to distinguish good from bad, positive from negative etc...
This can be understood through the concept of yin yang...by contrast you can receive clarity.
This is related to the divine movement of all that subsists in our universe, from planetary transits to seasons on Earth. These cycles are all a natural aspect of our universe which operate on certain vibrations to establish the stages of development that we experience.
"Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates." - The Kybalion.
Energy is manifested in two major ways: masculine and feminine. It exists in all creation, like in animals through sex. This law states that both male and female are required to exist.
As humans we all possess a degree of both, so learning to balance these two types of energy will lead to a more fulfilled life, through the acceptance and receptiveness to all sides of our being...
