Because, the truth is, life is simple when you understand the processes of nature.
As Raymond Holliwell said, “All of the processes of nature are successful. Nature knows no failures. She never plans anything but success.
She aims at results in every form and manner. To succeed in the fullest sense of the term we must, with nature as our model, copy her methods. In her principles and laws, we shall discover all the secrets of success.”
Everything in this universe is an expression of spirit, and spirit operates by exact laws. You are subject to those laws in the same manner as nature is. Therefore, Holliwell was right; we definitely should copy nature’s methods.
While there are more, I suggest that you pay particular attention to the following seven laws to help you live in harmony with them and consciously create the life you want.
1. The Law of Rhythm
The Law of Rhythm embodies the truth that there is always a reaction to every action. Everything is flowing in and out, swinging backward and forward, moving up and down.
This Law governs the movement of the planets in their orbit. It can be observed in the rising and setting of the sun and moon, the ebb and flow of the tides, the coming and going of the seasons, and in the rhythmic swing of consciousness and unconsciousness.
TIP: You are not going to feel good all of the time; no one does. If you did, you wouldn’t even know it because low feelings are what permit you to enjoy the high feelings. When you are in a downswing, know the swing will change, and things will get better. Good times are coming—choose to think of and expect them.
2. The Law of Polarity
The Law of Polarity decrees everything in the universe has its opposite: hot-cold… good—bad…inside—outside. There are a right and a left side to your body and a front and back. Every up has a down, and every down has an up.
This Law also states that everything has an opposite that is equal. If there are three feet from the floor up to the top of a desk, then there are three feet from the desktop down to the floor. There could not be any other way.
TIP: Understanding the Law of Polarity helps you see both sides of a person, situation, or circumstance.
Plus, you’ll feel more empowered and inspired as you move in the direction of your dreams because you will understand that you make something negative or positive by how you choose to think about the situation. You’ll be aware that it’s your thoughts and choices, not your circumstances, that will create the life you desire.
3. The Law of Cause and Effect
Everything in the entire universe happens according to Law—there is no such thing as chance. Every effect (result) must have a cause, and in turn, that cause must have an effect. Thus, we have the perpetual, never-ending cycle of cause and effect.
Ralph Waldo Emerson called the Law of Cause and Effect “the Law of Laws.” This Law decrees that whatever you send into the Universe comes back. Just like everything has an equal opposite (the Law of Polarity), action and re-action are equal and opposite.
TIP: You are, of course, extremely interested in the effects in your life—your physical health, your relationships, the respect you earn, your income. If you concentrate on the CAUSE, the EFFECT will automatically take care of itself. Think good things about yourself and everyone else, treat yourself and others with respect, take care of your body, and it will ALL return to you. That is how the Law works.
4. The Law of Gestation
Gestation is the amount of time it takes for formless energy to manifest into form. This Law declares that there is a set incubation or gestation period for every seed (physical or spiritual)—a specific span of time that it needs to follow its blueprint to come into physical form.
A baby goes through a gestation period of 280 days. A carrot gestates in about 10 to 12 days, though some varieties take up to three weeks. Certain things in the world and life tend to have “normal” gestation periods, but as the human race and technology progresses, these gestation periods often get shorter and shorter.
TIP: When you have a goal or intense desire, have patience, and believe in the end result. Patience is not the ability to wait but the ability to maintain faith and keep a positive attitude while waiting for your desire to come to fruition.
5. The Law of Perpetual Transmutation
Everything in the universe is energy. Energy is the cause and effect of itself, and it cannot be created or destroyed. The Law of Perpetual Transmutation decrees that energy is constantly in a state of transmission and change.
This Law explains the creative process, such as why the thoughts that we hold in our mind with emotion must move into their physical counterpart. It also explains prayer. Prayer is the movement that takes place between spirit and form with and through you.
TIP: We are responsible for many of our lives’ conditions, and we have the power and free will to change them. Energy is flowing into your consciousness constantly. Become an alchemist and transmute it into whatever conditions you choose through your focus and by getting emotionally involved with the idea of the change you want to see.
6. The Law of Vibration (and the Law of Attraction)
Although most people have heard a lot more about the Law of Attraction, the Law of Vibration is actually the primary Law. The Law of Attraction is secondary.
In a blog post called “The Law of Vibration Vs. the Law of Attraction,” I detail these laws, but I’ll summarize them here.
The Law of Vibration decrees that everything ever created, from the smallest atomic particle to the tallest skyscraper, is in a constant state of energetic motion.
The thoughts you think and internalize (get emotionally involved with) are in control of the VIBRATION you’re in. As you become conscious of this vibration, you refer to it as how you are “FEELING.”
There is a connection between your FEELINGS and what you ATTRACT to yourself. That’s because your feelings lead to your actions, and your actions attract the people, things, and experiences you are in harmony with. Another way of saying that is the vibration you’re in attracts the results you get in life.
TIP: Don’t allow your current circumstances to dictate what you think and how you feel inside. Instead, live from the inside out by choosing and focusing on thoughts that align with what you want. Doing so will cause changes in your vibrational field to attract or create the results you want in life.
7. The Law of Relativity
Each of the laws I’ve covered here is related to and corresponds with each other. In fact, all universal laws must be in harmony, agreement, and coordinate with each other. Understanding the Law of Relativity will help you understand this and solve many of the secrets of nature that seem paradoxical.
For example, all rates of vibration are either high or low, but only by comparison with those above or below them. All sizes, distances, weights, and heights are relative too.
The bottom line is everything in life just “IS.” We make a thing big or small, good or bad, close or far, easy or difficult by comparing it to something else.
TIP: When you relate your ability to perform a skill that you are not proficient at to someone else who has mastered the skill, you will not look good. That is using the Law against yourself. Instead, make a habit of using this Law to your benefit. Instead of using it to compare yourself to others, use it to heighten your self-esteem by acknowledging your accomplishment and your infinite potential. You will then become aware of how special you are in the light of truth.
Nothing happens by accident
This is an orderly universe; nothing happens by accident. The images you plant in your marvelous mind instantly set up an attractive force which governs your results in life. You must remember, though, that this process is equally as effective with negative images as it is with positive ones.
Although it is true that everything you will ever want is already here, if not inf form—in substance, it is up to you to get into harmony with it.
Since you do attract everything into your life by law, it would be a wise move on your part to begin forming the habit of thinking only of what you want, regardless of the conditions or circumstance you may presently find yourself facing.
