“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration” – Nikola Tesla
If you are one of the 65 million people who have enjoyed Paulo Coelho’s ‘The Alchemist’, chances are that you’ve been introduced to the Law of Attraction. However, that is not the only law you should look into. There are a total of 12 laws of the universe as per Dr. Milanovich and Dr. McCune in The Light Shall Set You Free (1998) that shape your life. Philosophers, thinkers and other great men have attested to the fact that understanding these spiritual laws equals holding life’s magic wand to success.
12 Laws Of The Universe
The 12 universal laws encompass the laws of divine oneness, vibration, action, correspondence, attraction, cause and effect, compensation, perpetual transmutation of energy, relativity, polarity, rhythm and gender.
1. The law of divine oneness
As the name suggests, this law says that we are all connected. Humans, animals and nature are all interdependent and intra-dependent. Our thoughts and actions do not just impact those around us but the whole universe.
Next time you’re outside, take time to appreciate nature and do not do anything that is harmful to any other being.
2. The law of vibration
According to this law, every particle in this universe has a certain energy frequency and it is never stationary. While this is easily proven for macroscopic bodies like planets and galaxies, it is also true for simple things like your chair and your comb.
To maximize your productivity, you must try and maintain positive energy.
3. The law of action
As per this law, to achieve a change or to manifest something, one must take action. Some claim that all of this is gibberish, and none of these laws are true, including the law of attraction. That is because they fail to follow the law of action.
If you wish to achieve something, get off your couch and take action, do something about your dreams!
4. The law of correspondence
This law suggests that all the laws that govern the physical world energy light have their counterparts in the etheric realm. This is a straight pointer to repetitive patterns observed on all scales in the universe.
A great example would be the movement of planets around the sun and the movement of electrons around the nuclei. How similar in nature yet diverse in size and functionality!
Similarly, your life has patterns too. Look out for them and try to avoid the faulty ones that lead to decisions.
5. The law of attraction
Remember how insixth grade our science teacher told us ‘opposites attract’ in reference to a magnet? Well, it’s not the same here!
In fact, it’s totally the opposite – ‘like attracts like’ is what the universe believes in. If you wish to have something in life, you must reverberate energies similar to it. If you stay positive, you would get back positivity from the universe.
Paulo Coelho’s, “When you want something, all the Universe conspires in helping you to achieve it,” is true. However, to make it work you must keep in mind the law of action as well.
6. The law of cause and effect
Ralph Waldo Emerson wasn’t wrong when he called this the Law of Laws. The law of cause and effect states that you get back whatever you send into the universe. This essentially means that there’s nothing that happens ‘by chance’ or ‘by luck’, you get what you give. When Newton stated in his third law, “Every action has an equal and opposite reaction,” he sure knew what he was talking about.
7. The law of compensation
An extension to the law of cause and effect, this essentially states that you get the kindness and positivity that you bestow on others. If you have a lot of friends, money and a good family, that is because you were good to people too.
8. The law of perpetual transmutation of energy
This law is based on the constant nature of change. The universe keeps changing and every being has the ability to change their circumstances, no matter what they are.
9. The law of relativity
This law makes it clear that every individual is tested by the universe by the means of problems and hurdles that can be overcome. This also helps humans gain insight and ponder over the fact that nothing is good or bad until and unless it impacts something else.
10. The law of polarity
Everything in this universe has an opposite – matter has antimatter and while matter makes up the world, antimatter destroys it. These opposites help us appreciate the world. While you wish to quit your job, you do understand what isn’t right for you. When you go through a bad relationship, you come to recognize what you are looking for in a partner.
11. The law of rhythm
Everything moves according to a rhythm, and just like a rhythm everything in the universe has its ups and downs. Do not let the downs hinder your thought process. This law establishes seasons, cycles, stages.
12. The law of gender
Knowing these laws is your first step towards a better tomorrow. You now hold the tools to shape your future and make conscious decisions that will lead to desired outcomes. We, the beings of this universe, alone hold the power to create heaven on earth. Incorporating spiritual teachings in everyday life is a small, yet powerful step towards the same.
