1. You know your thoughts are a greater force than matter, energy and power combined
You are aware that you are made of something much greater than you could ever have imagined.
Each one of us are a part of the Universal Source, where all beings and all things truly manifest from.
Everything that exists all around you, your body, your chair, your desk, your computer, your house, your city, is actually just refined matter, which is Spirit.
You understand that mental thought penetrate every plane of existence. Really, all of these planes are forever held inside of the Mind of the All. The greater reality and everything in it first has had its origin in the (invisible) Mental Plane.
You are aware that your mind is a piece of the Universal Mind with merely degrees of difference.
You know through experience the true natures of ‘Energy,’ ‘Power’, and ‘Matter’, and that they are subordinate to the mind.
Everyone’s personal world as well as the collective reality we share is actually a manifestation of our minds.
We are the creator and the creation itself. You know that it is only through your mind that anything and everything can even begin to become manifest.
2. You know when you change your thoughts you change your world
You know the old Hermetic saying, “As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul”.
Even deeper still you know that it declares that our current outer world is in also just natures mirror. It shows us what is actually happening inside of us.
You know deep down why all of the self help books out there are written intrinsically about how to change from the inside out.
Your inner nature is always being revealed to you through reflecting back to us in our outer mirror (reality). Any thoughts and images that you happen to think about inside of your mind tends to want to begins to manifest themselves quickly in our external world.
The subconscious mind takes everything as it is, it does not filter any of what it is given, and just begins to re-create exactly what it is you are focusing on the most.
Whatever you do on the Micro level, so you will do on the Macro level.
You understand that it is your job as an incarnated spirit inside a human body, to completely and totally choose how you want to emotionally react to that which you happen to experience.
3. You know that by changing your thoughts you change your vibration
You know that everything is in constant motion (physics, duh) and vibrates at its own rate of vibration, including you.
Only when you combine your conscious awareness with your will can you alter your reality.
The real secret to “The Secret” and the “Law of Attraction” is just a practical application of mental transmutation.
Where you choose to change your mental state (your thoughts) that changes your vibration to match (your frequency).
The real method of mastering your environment is through working on your personal vibration.
It is vital that you maintain a mindset of well directed emotions while also sending loving thoughts out into your environment.
This is how you create a large ripple and current within the entire matrix. Your will empowers it.
Alignment is not all about focusing on “attracting”, the real power source behind manifesting has always been your vibration.
You vibrate your frequency out into the ether and then your dominant energetic patterns are drawn back towards you.
They manifest in the form of syncronicities, things, people and experiences that are an exact match of alignment to your set vibration.
4. You know that polarity is power
Opposites are said to actually be identical – they differ only by degrees, why makes them seem totally different.
You know that everything in our physical reality has its opposite and that all extremes meet. Polarity is all about extreme opposites, which are actually different degrees of the same thing.
Temperatures such as hot and cold aren’t distinct phenomenons in themselves, but the same thing, again with their only difference lying in the matter of degrees.
On the mental plane, polarity manifest as love and hate, fear and courage, greed and compassion.
These feelings are all but varying degrees of the same thing. Polarity just means that there is duality in all things, and all opposites are merely halves of a greater whole.
The difference is always determined by your vibration. Some emotions are at a higher frequency (love) whereas others are on a lower frequency (hate), these are representations of polar opposites.
As you persevere to observe your mind, you can work towards shifting your perception towards Unity.
This is one of the old alchemical secrets that rises you above and beyond what your brain has been continuously conditioned to perceive.
5. You know that everything is in constant flow and has its tides
The Universe is not running at a chaotic and disorderly rate, it is actually quite orderly as it is continuously moving to specific rhythms.
Specific rhythms appear in nature all around us. They are the seasons, its cycles, its stages of growth, and we see in in patterns within Nature.
Like a pendulum, rhythm flows…
…swaying, flowing, swinging, going from left to right, back and forth, back and forth, indefinitely.
It doesn’t matter where you are, something is either growing or its dying.
Rhythm governs the cycles of society and the economy. Just like the ebb and flow of water, there are times of high tides and low tides.
Always flowing as just another example of a cycle, it’s a rhythm, it’s a pattern.
Every pair of opposites have their own rhythm, that happens outside of time, in movement, in a finely aligned dance.
The rhythm is the dance of the Universe that enables the transition to change and to move from one opposite pole to another.
For every action there is always an opposite and equal reaction. After every success there will be failure. When living in abundance, there soon may be times of scarcity.
Rhythm is quite important to your mental state and wellbeing.
When shit hits the fan, the key is not to be negatively influenced by the harsh pendulum swing. Thats it.
It’s not always easy though. The main focus for every being is to not get attached to anything.
It’s important not to base your happiness and emotional wellbeing on external circumstances, people or objects. These are always outside of your control, and focusing on these external circumstances is the main cause of anxiety.
It is your own highest and best interest to strive towards an indifferent and neutral state of mind. One that is blissfully unattached no matter what conditions you find yourself in.
To consciously be the observer in any situation and be receptive to any information from a truly neutral perspective.
This neutral perspective strives towards being in absolute acceptance of all things exactly as they are.
6. You know that there is importance in every thought, word, choice and action
The choices you make are causes in themselves, whether consciously or not these actions will always produce corresponding outcomes and effects.
If you reflect on your life you can see the effects and results of specific actions or inactions taken.
Whatever you put out (cause) will have a result (effect). The same is true with personal relationships.
If you happen to treat the important people in your life with love, compassion, respect, and honesty (cause) you may experience having loving and solid relationships that are fulfilling and rewarding to your happiness and state of mind (effect).
You can be successful in any area of your life. Whatever it is, whether you desire a more favourable outcome in business, relationships, or love…
…You should be able to exert the same efforts (causes) that others before us have exerted and achieve success (effects).
You know how to emulate the saying “fake it till you make it”. While remembering to also take the necessary steps where you are doing the things that others have done (minor action) to get what they wanted.
Eventually you know you’ll end up with the same kind of successful (massive action) results over a period of time. If you stick to it!
7. You know that everything has Feminine and Masculine energy
The Masculine Principle is always existing in the direction of giving out, freedom, expression; and is connected to the will to achieve something and to take the necessary action required. Masculinity embodies Yang energy. The Sun and its flames heat the Earth while simultaneously nourishing it.
The Feminine Principle is always existing in the direction of receiving, absorbing, reflecting; is connected to the subconscious and has a much larger field of operation. Femininity embodies Yin energy. The Moon as a satellite, with its control of the tides, it is the embodiment of water that heals and restores the wounded warrior.
It is vital that there these two forces must always be in balance.
Without the Feminine, the Masculine tends to act without restraint, order and reason, often resulting in chaos.
An the Feminine alone tends to be in a state of constant reflection and fails to act or do anything, often resulting in stagnation.
Your conscious thought process must be rooted in the sacred union of both the Masculine and Feminine principles.
When both the Masculine and Feminine principles are working together, there is meaningful action that will always lead to success.
8. You know that in order to change anything in your life, you must care
You are aware that the driving force that really makes anything happen, is you (has anyone seen the Lorax?).
It’s actually up to you, whether you care or not, in order to begin to generate your own life experiences.
To care is to create, and to create is to care.
This means care about our every thought, word, feeling and action.
Care is the combination of desire and will together, and then becomes manifest in our world.
You care on a day-to-day basis and this becomes the conscious driving force behind your thoughts and actions.
It is not enough to just talk about what changes we want to see in the world. It’s much more than just feeling “right”.
If something means enough to you, and you care enough to actually want to change anything about it, you do it through doing your part with outer actions.
The Law of Attraction is really a basic law of the Universe which in itself runs through all of the seven Universal Laws listed above. The Law of Attraction can be seen as the technical output of the lost Law of Care.
You know that the symbol Seed of Life is the all encompassing circle which is the container for all of the other principles.
You are the container like the Seed of Life, this hidden and lost Law is the one that governs all of creation itself.
