Like Newton’s law of universal gravitation, there are immutable laws of the universe that govern our reality and life experience. When you understand these laws, you can shift your life in a very powerful way.
In this article, I’m going to share 12 laws of the universe that are always working, whether you believe in them or not. I believe they are designed for your benefit as a creator, because life gets a whole lot more fun when you start applying them.
How many laws are in the Universe?
Honestly, we don’t truly know the answer to that but I’m going to share 12 laws of the universe that we do know about. How do we know about these? Quantum physics have been proving them and before quantum physics were around, people used their intuition and logic to understand them.
Similar to how people used to think the world was flat and then we had our minds blown by learning that it wasn’t (sorry, flat-earthers) we are coming to understand our universe in a way we never have before.
For the longest time, we’ve believed in matter and physicality. Most doctors diagnose based on what they can see and go no further beyond that. But we are learning that all the way down to our very basic structure, we are made of energy–not matter.
Why should you care about this? Because it opens a whole new world of possibilities. Think about it: everything, even dis-ease…is NOT born of matter…it’s all energy. And energy can shift.
How the Universe works
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”
Your body, thoughts and emotions are all energy that have a frequency and vibration of their own. A very thought has its own level of vibration and frequency. Think about that for a bit.
The universe is logical and balanced. As you will learn below, there are no effects without a cause. Things of a high vibration do not dip down and tango with lower vibrations. It’s not possible.
This means that if you get intentional about the way you think, feel and believe, you can alter and shift your reality.
If everything in this universe is energy with its own vibration and frequency, it means that everything can be shifted. You can begin flowing with the laws of the universe instead of struggling within them and feeling victimized by life.
The 12 Laws of the Universe
These laws were not created by humans, rather they have been observed and recorded. They do not change like the laws of man change. These laws are immutable and always working.
By learning, understanding and applying them to your life, you can change your life experience from one of strife to abundance and joy.
1. The Law of Divine Oneness
“The most important principle of divine philosophy is the oneness of the world of humanity, the unity of mankind, the bond conjoining East and West, the tie of love which blends human hearts.” Abdu’l-Baha
This law states that: We are all connected to one source, made of the same thing. We are like an interconnected web of energy, and everything we do sends vibrations throughout the entire web, affecting the collective consciousness.
Life hack: See everything and everyone as a God-being manifested in the physical form. Everything and person has a Divine gift to give you if you are open to receiving it.
2. The Law of Vibration
“How you vibrate is what the universe echoes back to you in every moment.” Panache
This law states that: Everything in the universe is energy vibrating, from your body to your thoughts to your emotions. Love is of the highest vibration and hate is the most dense and base vibration.
Life hack: Spend a few minutes every day thinking of things to appreciate so that your vibration rises to one of love. Watch what begins to happen in your life as a result.
3. The Law of Correspondence
“Everything we do is infused with the energy with which we do it. If we’re frantic, life will be frantic. If we’re peaceful, life will be peaceful.” Marianne Williamson
This law states that: Your outer world is always a reflection of your inner world. As above, so below; as within, so without.
Life hack: Stop reacting to the outer world and begin intentionally creating it instead. The outer world is a by-product of your inner world, which means you must change how you feel and think before your outer world can change.
4. The Law of Attraction
“Imagination is everything; it is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” Albert Einstein
This law states that: The level of your vibration attracts circumstances, experiences and people of a like vibration.
Life hack: The more time you spend tending to your thoughts and emotions, the higher your vibration will be, and the more you will begin to attract things that vibrate on the same level. Health, abundance, love and joy are all high vibrations, and you can rest in the knowledge that these will flow to you when you find yourself feeling them before they manifest.
5. The Law of Inspired Action
“Action that comes from the feeling of inspiration is action that will produce good results, for you are allowing the laws of attraction of the universe to carry you.” Esther Hicks
This law states that: Action taken from an inspired, high-vibrational place will yield tremendous results compared to action taken from a place of struggle and low vibration.
Life hack: Ask yourself as many times a day as you remember “What do I feel like doing now? What would be fun to do now?” You are always being led towards action that will yield to you through the law of attraction.
6. The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy
“Thoughts become things. If you see it in your mind, you will hold it in your hand.” Bob Proctor
This law states that: All energy in motion eventually manifests into physical form and can manifest back into energy.
Life hack: Since everything is energy in motion, to manifest something into physical form you need to slow the energy down. You do this by feeling into the vibration of the desire. Feel vibrant/abundant/successful/in love now in order to manifest it into physical form.
7. The Law of Cause and Effect
“The universal law of karma is that of action and reaction, cause and effect, sowing and reaping. In the course of natural righteousness, man, by his thoughts and actions, becomes the arbiter of his destiny.” Paramahansa Yogananda
This law states that: Commonly known as the law of karma, what you put out comes back to you.
Life hack: Understand that nothing in your life is by chance. It is all a reflection of where you have been mentally and emotionally. Love others and wish the best for them. Judge nothing and blame no one. The more love you send out, the more you will receive back.
8. The Law of Compensation
“When you understand the law of divine compensation, you realize that in the presence of spiritual consciousness, there is more than enough compensation for any diminishment in materiality.” Marianne Williamson
This law states that: The law of cause and effect is applied to our abundance.
Life hack: Serve the world with love, no matter how small or menial you feel it is. Allow others to serve you. Intentionally put yourself in a place of ever-flowing giving and receiving. It is the divine order of things.
9. The Law of Relativity
“Normal is an illusion. What is normal for the spider is chaos for the fly.” Charles Addams
This law states that: Nothing can be judged as good or bad until it has been experienced and compared to something else.
Life hack: Understand that life happens for you, not against you. Use everything you experience as feedback for fine-tuning your desires and the direction you want to go in.
10. The Law of Polarity
“We cannot experience sadness without an idea of happiness. Light cannot be experienced if we do not know what darkness is. To feel successful, we must have a sense of what failure is.” Unknown
This law states that: There are two sides to everything and everything has an opposite on the SAME spectrum.
Life hack: Take something that’s occurring in your life that you don’t like, and name its opposite. Use the law of polarity to help you focus in on what you do want in order to move in the other direction. Understand that negative experiences can help you propel in the opposite direction.
11. The Law of Rhythm
“The whole world moves according to the laws of nature in an auspicious rhythm of innocence, intelligence and divinity. That is Shiva.” Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
This law states that: There are patterns and rhythms to everything. Everything ebbs and flows, swinging to the left and back to the right. Like every season, everything has a purpose and function in the grander scale of the universe.
Life hack: See the good in every cycle and stage. Acknowledge and enjoy the positive that comes with every rising and receding tide. Allow yourself to experience the beauty in every unfolding and ever-changing cycle of life. Don’t let current and temporary negative situations bring you down–understand that nothing is permanent.
12. The Law of Gender
“You are here to enable the divine purpose of the universe to unfold. That is how important you are.” Eckart Tolle
This law states that: Everything has masculine and feminine principles within it and must be in balance.
Life hack: In order to manifest your desires, you must strike a balance between doing and receiving. Taking action and resting. Realize that when you focus on a thought or feeling, it goes into a state of incubation and is then “born” into physical reality. Inspired action must be balanced with patience and faith.
When you come to understand and incorporate these universal laws into your life, you begin to see everything differently. I personally see myself with less judgement, more love and more deep inner peace.
This whole beautiful experience is for us to expand, grow and enjoy. Even the darkness serves its purpose when we understand that it makes the light so much brighter and our desire for clarity so much stronger.
While it’s all truly a mystery, I believe that we can rest easy with the faith that this whole cosmic dance is one of love and expansion.
