The Twelve Laws of the Universe #6

Welcome to the final part in this six part series on the Twelve Laws of the Universe. I hope it has been as enjoyable for you to read as it has been for me to write.

I have learnt a lot whilst working on this series and it has also made me realise where I have been falling short in my own journey with the Laws of the Universe.

There have been moments, along the way, where my faith has wavered, but, on the whole, I have overcome these hurdles and have learnt a great deal about myself, my journey, the Universal Laws and how we can all apply them to our own lives. Most importantly, for me, I have realised that this is truly what I want to do in life. I want to help others discover the power they have within them to become whatever they want to be. To have the life they have always dreamed of. I am not there yet, but I know I am on my way. I now fully understand the ebb and flow and how it is all a part of the journey.

Today we are looking at the Law of Rhythm and the Law of Gender.

The Law of Rhythm

Everything flows, out and in; everything has it’s 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 – Kybalion

The Law of Rhythm teaches us that everything has a flow. If it goes up it must come down, it swings to the left, therefore, it must swing to the right. Ebb and flow, to and fro, in and out.

As we learnt with the Law of Polarity everything has an opposite. If it goes one way it must go the other way. We have high points in life and low points. We cannot have one without the other. The trick is to remember that when the chips are down things can only get better.

“When you are on a down swing, do not feel bad. Know the swing will change and things will get better. There are good times coming, think of them.” – Bob Proctor

There is an order to everything. Nothing is ever chaotic. The Law of Rhythm is always working. We see it in nature, in our seasons. One flows effortlessly into the other.

We see it in our economy. Before every low there is a high and after every high there is a low. It is the Law.

There is a rhythm to everything. We are born and we die. For every death there is a birth. The circle of life continues. Order prevails. The natural rhythm of life continues moving in an orderly fashion.

To apply this Law to our lives we must remember that for every low there must, by Law, follow a high. Do not look upon the low periods in your life as punishments or never ending holes of despair. See them for what they are, lessons preparing you for the high that is on it’s way. How can you truly appreciate the highs without the lows. Without one there cannot be the other. Everything happens for a reason, we must find the reason and learn from it in order to allow the pendulum to swing the other way. We must accept the low periods for what they are and move with the flow of the tide. If we chose not to accept them then we will forever be fighting against the tide and ultimately the tide always wins and we will be left defeated and exhausted.

The Law of Gender

The Law of Gender is as simply as it sounds. Every masculine has a feminine and visa versa. In the physical realm we are all manifest in either masculine or feminine form but ultimately we are all androgynous with both male and female qualities it is only our dominant quality that determines our gender on the physical plane.

Everything in nature has it’s masculine and feminine. This is how everything is created. We cannot have one without the other. Both parts are needed. We must accept this in order to progress and grow. No side is more important, stronger or dominant than the other. One cannot work without the other. To fully appreciate all there is in life one must accept this Law. We were all created equal. Opposite sides of the same coin.

“This is, in truth, the Creative Law. This Law decrees that everything in nature is both male and female. Both are required for life to exist.” – Bob Proctor

This Law tells us that all things need time to grow. Everything from a human child to a mighty oak takes time. We must nurture it and allow it the time to germinate, to sprout and to slowly transform into the wondrous creation it was meant to be. We cannot rush nature. To rush nature is to interrupt the process and in doing so we ultimately damage the end result.

Think of your dreams as tiny seeds that need to be planted, tended to, watered, loved and cared for. Each stage requires a different level of care. You cannot rush the process or the seedling will die before it has had chance to grow. Your dreams are the same. You must nurture them, love and care for them. Allowing them time to manifest. To reach your true potential you have to allow yourself time to grow.

I read a beautiful story on another blog (Sparklyjen.com) about a butterfly that I think fits this law perfectly.

 Thank you for joining me on this six week journey through the Laws of the Universe. I really hope they have helped inspire you in some way and that you have a better understanding of how the Universal Laws work. I think it is clear that they are all needed for us to manifest a life that fulfils our true potential.

Hello again everyone. I hope I find you all well?

I hope you have all had a chance to read the other four posts in this series, if not you can catch up on them using the links at the end of this post. I have had some really positive emails and comments about this series so far and look forward to hearing more from you all.

In today’s post I will be looking at the Law of Relativity and the Law of Polarity. Some of you may already be familiar with these Laws but for those of you who are not let us explore further.

The Law of Relativity

Image result for the law of relativity

The Law of Relativity teaches us to compare our problems to the problems of others. What may appear like a catastrophic event to us, when compared to the problem of another, suddenly pails into insignificance. Things begin to be put into perspective. As my mum always said:

“There is always someone worse off.”

Now I know that sounds harsh, looking for someone who is worse off than you to make yourself feel better, but that is not the meaning of this Law. The point is that no matter how bad a situation seems to you, there will always be someone in a worse situation, thus making your problem seem not so bad after all.

For example; we look at our busy lives and complain that we have little time to socialise or relax, yet when compared to someone in one of the third world countries, for example, you begin to realise how lucky we are in our western society. Everything is relative. In our modern world we have become so obsessed with technology and material possessions, we have lost site of the simple things in life and forgotten how blessed we are to have running water, food in our bellies and a roof over our head. We are not in war torn cities, fearing for our lives, not knowing where our next meal is coming from. Our main concern is that we might lose internet connection for a few minutes!!!

Everything only exists because it is made real by it’s comparison to something else:

  • Light vs dark
  • Hot vs cold
  • Good vs evil
  • Big vs small

It is all relative. It is all about how we relate it to something else.

You may think you don’t have enough money until you compare yourself to someone else. To them you may appear rich as they have far less than you. The Law of Relativity says we should stop comparing ourselves to those who have far more than us because this only serves to make us have feelings of lack. These feelings of lack are sent out into the Universe as vibrations of what we want more of so we will be sent more things to make us feel we don’t have enough (bills, debt etc.)

By comparing ourselves to those less fortunate than us we begin to appreciate how lucky we really are and how blessed our lives are. We begin to be grateful for what we do have, therefore sending out feelings of abundance and gratitude. Our vibrations become positive and the Universe will send us more things to be grateful for, more abundance!

This Law reminds us that what we believe we have is all relative in comparison to someone or something else. We can use it to our advantage or to our disadvantage, depending on our outlook.

There will always be someone who has more than you, someone who can run faster than you, is smarter than you. But in comparison there will always be someone who has less than you, runs slower than you or is not as smart as you. Look at what you have and be thankful. Be positive about your situation. Look for the good in everything.

It’s all about how you look at the world around you!

If you are grateful for what you have now you will always have enough because the Universe will ensure you always have things to be grateful for.

Check out my Friday Share from 05/05/2017 for a little reminder.

The Law of Polarity

Nothing is one sided. There are two sides, or poles, to everything. Everything has an opposite. The difference in between the two extremes is called polarity.

Everything has an opposite.

The Law of Polarity states that opposites are just different manifestations of the same thing.

Sir Isaac Newton said that:

“every action has and equal, and opposite, reaction”

The purpose of the Universe is equilibrium and synchronicity. It is said that love and hate are actually the same emotion. For how can you hate someone you have never truly loved. Only someone you love can stir such emotion in you to cause you to hate them because only the actions of someone you love could hurt you so deeply that the love could turn to hate.

The Law of Polarity enables us to experience life at it’s fullest. Without experiencing one thing how can we appreciate another?

How can you appreciate heat if you have never experienced cold?

How can you appreciate abundance if you have never experienced struggle?

  • Love vs hate
  • Hot vs cold
  • Good vs bad
  • Big vs small
  • Failure vs success

All things work together. Without one you cannot have the other. Therefore, all things, good and bad, success and failure, abundance and austerity must work for the higher good.

All is Love

Sometimes you have to experience adversity to appreciate prosperity, sadness to appreciate joy. The Law is there to teach us. To help us learn and discover.

In every failure we find success

Image result for inventor of lightbulb 10000 fail quote

If Thomas Edison had not failed he would never have invented the light bulb and we’d all be sitting in the dark! If it had not been dark he would never have tried in the first place!

Every situation is only ‘good’or ‘bad’ by how we perceive it. Something you consider to be bad another may think is good. Take a step back, look again, is it as bad as you first thought? Is there a lesson to be learnt?

Every one of us is sent a series of lessons. We must learn from these lessons before we can move forward. If we do not learn then the lesson will keep manifesting in different ways until we learn what is has been sent to teach us.

Look for the positive in EVERY situation!

By looking for the good in all situations we will learn our lessons quicker and progress faster.

The same is true for people. Always look for the good in everyone. Positive thoughts create positive energy and send out good vibrations to the Universe and as we know the Universe then sends back more things to be positive about!

You can see that, as with the other Laws we have looked at, there are strong similarities in these two Laws. The general thread through all the Laws is the same. It is about working with all the Laws to achieve our dreams. At first this sounds daunting but as you learn more about each Law you realise that they are all interconnected and work seamlessly together.Please check out the other posts in this series below:

The Twelve Laws of the Universe #3

download (1)

In this weeks post I am going to cover the Law of Correspondence and the Law of Cause and Effect. As with all the other laws you will see the repetition and similarities to the other laws I have already covered. There is a fine thread that runs through all twelve laws, linking them together intrinsically reinforcing the fact that to manifest your desires and master the Laws of the Universe you need to incorporate all twelve laws.

The fact they are all so similar makes it easy to blend them all together to fulfil a life of harmony, love, peace and unlimited abundance in every way.

the-emerald-tablet

The Law of Correspondence

“As above, so below”

“As within, so without”

“On Earth as it is in Heaven”.

as-above-so-below

This law states that whatever is happening in your life is a reflection or what is going on in your mind.

Your outer self is a direct reflection of your inner self. The conversations we have with ourselves create the realities we see on the outside. The same goes for the conversations we have with the universe or God. What we send out we receive back.

This should remind us again to be mindful of our thoughts for they create our reality. If you want to know what you are thinking just take a look at what’s around you. If you don’t like what you see change the way you correspond with yourself!

All our thoughts, feelings and beliefs manifest in our outer self.

All that we see in our universe is an outer expression and manifestation of the inner will of the infinite Mind.

This law highlights the fact that absolutely everything you have or experience within the physical world, i.e. relationships, friendships, material possessions, career success, finances etc, were all first created on the inside, in the MIND, and later manifested on the outside. Therefore, everything you experience in life is of your own making. This means that if you want a different reality in the physical plane first you must create it in the spiritual/mental plane.

Michael Jackson knew the answer…

The Law of Cause and Effect

Ralph Waldo Emerson said the Law of Cause and Effect is the “law of laws”.

“What goes around, comes around.”

“What you reap, you sow.”

download (2)

Some call it Karma. Some call it Fate. The point is that how you behave, how you speak to others, how you treat others will eventually come back and bite you on the arse!

If you are kind to people. If you treat people with love and respect then ultimately that is what you get back.

I hear you……

“Hang on, I’m kind to everyone but some people are just so rude!”

Let go…… that’s their issue. Just as you will be treated kindly by someone else, when you least expect it in return for your own kindness, they will be treated badly when they least expect it.

My mum always told me that “every action has a reaction”. Every cause has its own effect. Therefore, everything in our lives at this moment is a direct effect of a certain cause. Remember the equation from my post E+R=O Event+Response=Outcome. It’s the same principle. The Cause is the Event+Response, the Effect is the Outcome.

Can you see how these Laws are all linking together? The common thread is this:

  • Your thoughts create your reality
  • What you put out into the Universe is ultimately what you will get back
  • If you don’t like what’s going on on the outside world change what’s going on inside
  • Thoughts are powerful things
  • We can tell what we are thinking but what we are feeling and what we have created
  • We can change our reality at any time by changing the way we think and feel
  • Positive Mind creates positive life
  • Negative Mind creates negative life

So next time you say something, think something or do something think about the effect it will cause. Are you speaking from a place of love and respect? If not are you prepared to accept the consequences of your actions? How do you want to be treat/spoken to?

I hope you are enjoying this series on the Twelve Laws of the Universe and I hope you are learning something that will help you on your journey. If you missed the first two post you can catch up on them here:

Dorrie and the Witch Doctor

41Z51ZLSMdL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

This was my favourite book as a child and if I’m honest it is still one of my favourites to this day. It’s a beautiful little book about a young witch, named Dorrie, her beloved cat Gink, and her grumpy, old Aunt Agra. My mum used to read it to me when I was young and I always loved the different voices she would do for the different characters. When I got older and had children of my own I read the story to them, trying my best to be as good at the voices as my mum (failing miserably lol). I also bought copies for my nieces when they were toddlers but I’m not sure my sister had the same enthusiasm for it as I did.

I still have my copy of the book. It’s lost it’s cover, the pages are all faded and ripped around the edges, most of it is being held together by sellotape and love, but it’s mine and I love it. I can’t imagine ever parting with it. It’s not just the story but the memories it holds for me.

20170426_092955

As you can see it’s really a bit tattered, but it’s well loved. The ironic thing is I am so careful with my books and always have been. I really am anal about book marks and not turning corners of pages over. Books to me are something to be cherished and cared for. Apart from age related damage all the damage to this book was done by other people. Maybe that’s where I got my phobia of loaning my books out from lol.

Anyway, as usual, I digress!

The point of this whole post is that in the book Dorrie’s Aunt Agra starts off horrible, moaning, grumpy and downright rude! She has pains in her head and pains in her toes” (I so wish there was a voice option on posts right now!). She has allergies upon allergies and generally she is not a very nice person. Her arrival at Dorrie’s house completely changes the mood of the place, so much so that Dorrie develops Auntitis! The Witch Doctor attends and Dorrie is soon back to normal, thanks to a box of chocolate peppermints. However, while he is there, he looks at Aunt Agra. He teaches her to smile and he teaches her stand up without shouting (there’s also some more choclate peppermints). Aunt Agra’s pain goes away and she starts to feel like an entirely different person. The mood in the house completely lifts and they all have a party!

The book reminds me of the Law of Attraction. How being negative can impact on your health and well being. How constantly being in a paid mood breeds more negativity and more health problems. It shows that the power of positive thinking can greatly improve our state of mind and therefore our health.

I wonder if the author knew about the law of attraction when she wrote this book or if it was just happy coincidence. I wonder why I never noticed the significance before. I wonder if this book, out of the entire series, was gifted to me at such a young age to introduce me to that Law of Attraction. I wonder if it came into my life again when my children were born and when my nieces were born to ‘shove me in the right direction or maybe it’s just a lovely book that holds special memories for me and it is only now that I can see the hidden message because now is the time I am ready to receive it.

Dorrie and the Witch Doctor is available to buy on Amazon along with other titles in the series.

This is my personal recommendation and I have not been paid to promote this book or Amazon.

Snot & Mascara!

Everything I seemed to have read recently has been about the proceeding struggle before something great happens to us. It is not that I have actively sort out these types of posts or images, they have just arrived at my feet like little soldiers, offering support when I felt like I was losing the battle. All neatly filed in line, one after the other. A constant reminder that the struggle is leading to something great. The lessons I am learning now are preparing me for what is to come. Each little soldier bringing with him his own first aid kit in the shape of a blog post or instagram feed. Gently pushing me forward, even though my heels are firmly planted in the dirt and my fingernails are clinging on for dear life to the tattered remains of what I am leaving behind. Too scared to tip toe forward, as I urged others to do in my post (One small step) not so long ago that I can have the luxury of claiming to have forgotten it.

The trouble with difficulty is that when we are faced with it and when we are going through tough periods in our lives we are often blinded by the circumstances with which we are faced and therefore cannot see where we are going. Sometimes the struggle is too hard and we cannot see a way out. We lose faith in the almighty that this is not forever. This is just preparing us for something better. These are the times when we need to stop and use our senses to envelope the struggle. Hold our faith. Accept that this will pass and from it we will learn a valuable lesson.

I have been finding life hard of late, both at work and personally. Up until today I was coping. I was taking it all in my stride. I was allowing the Universe to do it’s thing and trusting that whatever was going on was not going to last and that I was going to learn something profound from this whole experience. What that would be was not my concern, I just had to accept it and wait for it to pass. Like I said, that was up until today, when for no particular reason, it all became way too much! Oh God, my poor friend at work! I spoke to her on the phone about something very small when the floodgates opened and within minutes my nicely made up face became a picasso of snot and mascara! Not a good look for any woman. This is when all my senses and super powers (see my previous post on our six super powers) kicked in all at once and I was totally overwhelmed with emotion. The trouble was that I was using all these senses and superpowers in a negative way. Let me explain:

Senses

Sight – everything I looked at seemed an impossible task. The pile of papers on my desk appeared a mountain of unfinished work. My inbox glared at me like a challenging gladiator, daring me to open up another email demanding more work.

Sound – all the noise around me seemed magnified. The laughter I could hear felt like garish, horror movie clowns surrounding me and mocking my failure

Touch – everything I touched seemed to go wrong. The PC kept crashing, my favourite pen ran out. I caught my finger in the filing cabinet.

Taste – my tea suddenly tasted like the milk had gone off!

Smell – I even convinced myself that because I’d become such an emotional, blubbering wreck that somehow I developed a personal hygiene problem and now smelt like a sweaty camel! (don’t ask, coz I don’t know where that came from!)

Super Powers

Imagination – Oh boy! What fun games we like to play with ourselves when we are having a moment. Like all things imagination, we can get a bit carried away with it, especially when we are imagining the worst. I had convinced myself that due to my total inability to function like a normal employee and cope with the pressure I was the worst employee ever in all of crap employeeville!

Intuition – my intuition was telling me that something far worse that the snot and mascara monster was still to come and the gut feeling I was having was nothing to do with my own overactive imagination and totally out of control mind but because I was picking up on more bad stuff to come.

Memory – well that went out the window with Reason followed closely behind by Will!

Perception – the only superpower left and I think it’s clear what I done with that because it was my, quite clearly, hormonal, twisted, perception that started the whole snot and mascara episode off in the first place!

By the time my friend got to me I was makeup free (all but a few sogging eyelashes being glued together by remnants of mascara), sweaty (but not camel smelly) and exhausted.

I had followed none of my own advice. I had taken no heed from all the books I have read about self care. I did not step back from the situation, take deeps breaths, go and get some fresh air to clear my mind. I did not look at my surroundings and take in the positive. I did not harness my senses and super powers to lift my above the struggle and allow myself to view it from a higher plane of clarity. No. I just imploded into a hysterical, middle aged, very likely menopausal, hormonal mess.

nullnull

Lucky for me all my harping on about positivity and the Law of Attraction has obviously rubbed ofi on my friend at work. She dragged me away from my office and tramped my round one of our other sheltered housing schemes to visit some tenants. At the time I thought she was bonkers and I protested like a petulant child being dragged to the shops with their mother.

null

But you know what? It was the best thing ever. I got to catch up with one of my tenants that I’d been trying to reach earlier in the day. I also met up with another tenant that I needed to see to collect some paperwork and had scheduled a visit for later in the week, thus freeing up my time later this week. I also got to meet the resident woodpecker who was proudly tapping away in the tree in the garden and whilst waiting for my lovely friend to finish what she had to do I got to sit on the bench in the communal garden, with the sun on my face and watch as the blue tits and robins flitted about the bushes and trees.

null

And so inner peace was restored

It wasn’t until I got home that I realised. All the troubles of late are leading me to something better. Although I cannot see it at this time that is what is happening. I must remember to embrace the struggle, find joy in the hardship and seek out the lesson even if it means entering the darkness and facing the monsters.

Maybe that is the lesson I am being shown. Maybe there is another. Maybe the soldiers were there to encourage me to take the first step forward into the darkness. Maybe I was being shown the power of the senses and super powers and how they can be good and bad when not kept in check.

I don’t know. Clearly my lesson is not over. Whatever, my journey is moving forward and I must follow the yellow brick road, like Dorothy, facing whatever challenges come my way. Greeting new friends, foes, fears and triumphs before I get to the Emerald City and all the marvelous wonders this infinite Universe has to offer.

Jack Canfield · Learning · Success Formula

E+R=O

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

So as you all know from my previous post Don’t forget synchronicity I’ve been doing an online course with the delightful Jack Canfield. Yesterday’s homework was to focus on my past successes. This, for me, is easier said than done. However, I have to say that when you really think it about and start to write down what you have achieved in life, no matter how big or how small, you really start to feel positive about yourself.

You see, we always seem to remember the bad things, the stuff that didn’t go right. We mull it over and over in our minds until it becomes so much bigger than it really is. How many times has something happened and you’ve felt embarrassed? You replay it again and again in your head until it is such a monumental event that you never want to leave the house again! When, in reality, nobody else, other than you, has given it a second thought.

So let’s start focusing on the good! Our achievements. Our successes.Give it a try. You’ll be amazed at how good it makes you feel and how motivated you will be to take on your next challenge because you will know you are capable of anything!

Today’s lesson was all about E+R=O (Event+Response=Outcome).

Jack says that no matter what happens in our lives (event) the outcome is determined by our response. Our response is the only thing we have control over. Therefore, it’s our response that determines our success and happiness. We create our outcome!

Put it this way. Something happens to you at work. A colleague does something that pisses you off. Maybe they didn’t complete their part of a certain task or ignored a job that needed doing? Now this is where we choose our response. We can either react badly and so we get a bad outcome or we can react in a positive way, therefore, we get a positive outcome. It may be that the reason our colleague didn’t complete their part of the task is because they were busy dealing with something else or they weren’t feeling too good. Maybe they didn’t know how and were too embarrassed to admit it. Maybe they just couldn’t be bothered! The truth is, it doesn’t matter why they didn’t do it, they just didn’t do it. Now we can choose to let this stress us out. We can choose to get angry about it. Does it change anything? The answer is no!  Our response only affects us. It doesn’t change the event, it only changes the outcome. If we choose to react in a positive way we will receive a positive outcome.

I know it’s hard, especially when how others work impacts on our workload, but this is where we choose to let it stress us out or we choose let it go, to take a positive response. E+R=O.

We are the creators of our happiness. We choose what decisions we make. We choose. We respond. We create our outcomes.

I quit smoking last year. I gained weight. It wasn’t the event, me quitting smoking, that made me gain weight. It was my response to me quitting smoking that made me gain weight! I chose to eat to substitute my not smoking. I chose food over cigarettes. My choice, my response = negative outcome. Now I am exercising and eating healthy again. I am losing the weight I gained. My response to my weight gain = positive outcome.

I can’t wait for tomorrows lesson. This course has taught me so much. It has also reminded me to keep a positive mind and take responsibility for my outcomes.

Everything we are experiencing in our lives, right now, is a direct result of what we have thought. How we responded to things. We are the creators of our universe. If you don’t like what is in your life, change what you think and how your respond. Only we can change our outcomes. Only we can create what we want. The blame game needs to stop. Nobody else controls us. If you want something to change only you can make that happen.
