Defining Universal Law
Whether you know it or not, our reality is driven by fixed “laws” that determine the physical nature of the world we live in. You cannot change them, and they are affecting everything you do. You can continue through life oblivious to these laws, or you can start to understand them and utilise them to your advantage.
Let’s start with some simple definitions:
A law is an existing condition that is binding, immutable, fixed and cannot be changed. It just is.
A universe is a system of energy and energy appearing as physical matter.
Universal law is the set of natural, non-man-made and immutable conditions that determine how reality and consequence operate within the realm that humans exist in.
Two types of law naturally exist and function together to create our reality and impact our experience here on planet Earth. Universal law is just one of them.
- Universal law – Determines the nature and characteristics of energy in the physical reality we experience.
- Natural law – Determines natural human morals, rights, values and responsibilities through natural human actions and behaviour within this reality.
In addition, humans have created their laws, which are subjective and can be changed, so technically are not even laws.
- Human (or legal) law – Determines actual human morals, rights, values and responsibilities through human-made systems and regulations.
Why Does Universal Law Matter?
A universe is just one reality and one part of the infinite consciousness. Universal laws are like an agreement between aspects of Source Consciousness as to how a particular aspect of reality will benefit the aspects of Source that choose to experience it.
Our universal laws are a set of unique conditions that govern Earth’s physical experience and reality in the third and fourth dimensions. Before coming here, all souls who come to Earth agreed to these universal laws as a unique experience.
In other parts of infinite consciousness, energy will function differently to create different realities for different experiences.
These conditions constrain all souls who come to Earth. However, human beings are ethereal or energetic beings who come to Earth within a physical body. These laws can provide opportunities for new experiences as well as challenges.
How Many Universal Laws Are There?
Universal laws exist and operate regardless of whether human beings exist, believe them to be true or want them to be true. We can only begin to know and understand these laws in our human form by observation, personal experience, and research.
There is much debate about how many universal laws there are. There is also much confusion about what is universal and natural law, and they often become intertwined.
For our purposes, we are considering the laws and conditions that govern the physical reality outside of us, rather than the laws that determine human behaviour, which I refer to as natural law. These labels are purely one way of categorising so our human minds can understand these different concepts.
There is frequent reference to 3, 7, 12, or 20 universal laws, and sometimes even more. Many ancient and modern texts attempt to describe or explain these laws.
Objectively, Source knows the universal laws and how many they are, as Source created them. There are 12 widely accepted primary universal laws that we will consider here. However, many more physical conditions in our reality could be regarded as secondary universal laws or sub-sets of these primary laws. The number is not essential as it is just a way of trying to sort and understand these conditions of reality that we are living within.
The Twelve Universal Laws
We can start to understand and focus on the twelve universal laws and how they appear in our reality. This is a very brief introduction to each law. They can all be delved into a lot further to understand and master their application in your own life.
- The law of divine oneness or mentalism | Everything is inter-connected through a field of energy and affects everything else.
- The law of vibration | Everything in the universe moves and vibrates on a continuum or spectrum.
- The law of action | Action must be applied to create in the physical realm.
- The law of correspondence | The universe is holographic and is self-similar across all scales. What exists in one world, realm, being or thing exists in all worlds, realms, beings or things.
- The law of cause and effect | Nothing happens by chance. You create your reality as the energy of every word, thought, emotion, action and behaviour have an effect or consequence of the same energetic vibration and frequency as that which created it.
- The law of compensation | You get in return what you give, or what you sow you shall reap.
- The law of attraction | Like energies (positive or negative) attract like energies across physical, emotional, mental, spiritual and ethereal realms. Our inner realm determines the level at which we vibrate and attract into our outer world and life.
- The law of perpetual transmutation of energy | Energy is continually changing form. Nothing is permanent, and everything is temporary.
- The law of relativity | Everything is only made real compared to something else.
- The law of polarity or duality | Everything exists on a continuum or spectrum between opposites and can be moved or changed.
- The law of rhythm | Everything moves in rhythms and cycles and shifts from one end or polarity of a spectrum to the other and back again.
- The law of gender | Everything has feminine and masculine energies which must balance.
So what do we do with these universal laws?
Under the law of oneness (where everything is interconnected), understanding universal laws means we can consciously start creating our reality through our thoughts, emotions, actions, and behaviours.
Under the law of vibration (which says everything moves and vibrates as energy), we can start to understand how energy works in this physical experience on Earth.
Under the law of action, we understand we must be an active participant in creating our reality. Just thinking about what you want will not create it in this third and fourth-dimensional physical realm.
Under the law of cause and effect, we can consciously consider the outcomes of various actions or inactions and take responsibility for what we create in the world and the consequences of those creations.
Under the law of compensation, we can start to consider our communities and fellow human beings.
These are just a few general examples of beginning to apply universal laws in your life consciously. By studying, understanding and implementing, you have far more control over the reality you create and participate in.
You can begin to explore these laws, learn more and be an active participant in creating reality, or you can continue at the mercy of universal laws.
The choice is yours…
