Primary Universal Laws
This topic, broadcast on October 2nd 1987, examines twenty
primary Universal laws that when applied, assists us in maintaining the balance
in our lives. This is an extract from
Dick Sutphen's book Lighting the Light Within.
The Universe is perfectly balanced by natural and moral
laws with regulatory vibrations to maintain order, when you work within the laws
you can be assured of an eventual positive outcome. When the laws are
transgressed you can be assured of suffering; the only purpose of this is to
teach you a better way.
Law of Harmony.
This law supersedes even the fundamental law of Karma, for harmony is the
supreme potential of balance. The purpose of Karma is to attain harmony.
If you throw a rock into a pond you disturb the harmony of the pond, you
are the cause, the effect is the splash and the ripples that flows out and
back until harmony is restored. Similarly, your disharmonious actions flow
out into the Universe and back upon you, lifetime after life time, until
eventually your own harmony is restored.
Law of Reincarnation and Karma.
Until you have resolved your Karma and fulfilled your Dharma, which are
the deeds you must do, you will continue to reincarnate into sequential
lifetime upon the earth. Neither God nor the Lords of Karma bestow
suffering upon you during these lives, you and you alone decide what you
most need to learn and in your earthly sojourns, and for each life
experience you seek out other souls, often with shared histories, and
always with Karmic configurations matching your needs. Whenever you act
with intention you create Karma. Actions are considered to be thoughts,
emotions, words and deeds, and the motive, desire and intent behind each.
Disharmonious acts must be balanced in the future in this life or in a
future lifetime, to have Soul growth.
Law of Wisdom,
wisdom erases Karma. If you have the wisdom to learn your lessons through
love and wisdom you can mitigate your suffering. Sadly, we seem to learn
the fastest through pain, through directly experiencing the consequences
of our actions. As an example, you greedily take from others, and instead
of learning through wisdom and love that this is wrong, you have to
experience from others someone greedily taking from you, whether later in
this life or in a future lifetime.
In your last life you were married to a Soul who is your mate today, and
whom you cruelly left for another in that previous lifetime. Before you
were born into your current life, you agreed to be left by your mate,
under similar circumstances—this will allow you to balance your
Karma—and directly experience the pain of abandonment. If through the
wisdom of Master-Life-Awareness it is easier to detach consciously from
the relationship with love, you will ease the pain of parting while also
passing your own test, and thus absolving Karma and evolving from within.
Assume that you have Astrologically destined a severe relationship test
for May of your 35th year. If you have learned through past life
awareness, as well as present life learning, to be positive,
non-judgmental and without expectations in your relationship you may only
experience an argument with your mate on that fateful day in May, but if
you haven't learned your past lessons, and have intensified your
disharmony during your relationship you might experience a divorce in May
of your 35th year.
Law of Grace.
Karma can be experienced to the letter of the law or in mercy and grace.
In other words if you give love, mercy and grace to others, you will
receive the same in return.
Law of Soul Evolution.
Everyone on Earth shares the goal of Soul evolution whether they realize
it or not. We have reincarnated because we desire to evolve spiritually.
By rising above all of our fear based emotions and in so doing learning
how to express unconditional love we raise our vibrational rate, and move
closer to a state of harmony. Even where it appears that we are not
evolving we are in reality making progress. We learn through the pain of
our disharmonious acts, which can be viewed as our mistakes or failures.
This is the law of Soul Evolution.
Law of Bodhisattva.
Bodhisattva is a Sanskrit term commonly accepted by most Metaphysical
adepts today. It means one who has transcended the need of Earthly
incarnations but who has chosen to return to the earth to support others
in achieving enlightenment. A Bodhisattva knows he will never really be
free until all souls are free. Most serious students of metaphysics have
entered the Bodhisattva Development Stage of their evolution.
Law of Vibrational Attainment.
The entire Universe operates on the same principle of vibrational energy.
When Einstein discovered that "matter is energy." he opened the
door to merging science and metaphysics. The scientists have proved that
energy cannot die, it can only transform (reincarnate), and, by its very
nature, energy must go forward or backwards, it cannot stand still, for to
do so is stagnation, resulting in transformation. You are energy. Your
skin, which appears solid, is actually trillions of swiftly moving
molecules orbiting each other at a specific vibrational rate; a physical
life rate you have earned in the past as a result of how harmoniously—or
disharmoniously you have lived your past lives and your current life up
until this moment in time. When you are harmonious for a lifetime, you
will have attained the highest vibrational rate—the God level.
Law of Free Will.
The law of free will operates in three ways.
Although many of the major events in your life are
Astrologically predestined, you always have free will to mitigate the
impact of the event, or to transcend it entirely. This will result from
how you live your life up to the situation you have destined for yourself
to experience. If you give grace and mercy to others, are positive,
loving, compassionate, and demonstrate by your action that you have
learned past lessons, you can minimize disharmonious experiences!
As you obtain Master of life awareness and develop
conscious detachment, you will be far less affected by worldly events than
in the past. A Master of Life enjoys all the warmth and joy that life has
to offer, but detaches from the negativity by allowing it to flow through
him without affecting him.
You always have free will in how you respond to any
situation. If you respond with positive emotions, compassion and
integrity, you have probably learned your karmic lessons and will not have
to experience a similar situation in the future.
Law of One.
Every Soul, living and discarnate, is connected at the level of the
collective unconscious, deep within the Higher-Self. We are all part of a
great energy gestalt called God, and because we are part of God, we are
God. It is the goal of the gestalt to move the energy forward, creating
more energy. So, in living harmoniously, we each increase our vibrational
rate and intensify the vibration of the entire gestalt. When we are
disharmonious, we decrease the vibration of the entire gestalt, because we
are one, everything you think, say and do, affects every other Soul.
Law of Manifestation.
Everything manifest begins as a thought, an idea. Ideas and experiences
create beliefs which in turn, create your reality. If you are unhappy with
your current reality, you must change your beliefs and your behavior.
Beliefs can be changed when you recognize those that are not working for
you, and begin programming what will create success and harmony in your
life. The unlimited creative power of your mind, through dedication,
awareness and training, can be the wisdom to rise above your Karma. Within
physical and spiritual laws, you can manifest any reality you desire to
experience. In regard to changing your behavior, you must decide which
disharmonious behavior you want to eliminate. Then be aware that you don't
have to change how you feel about something to affect it, if you are
willing to change what you are doing.
Law of Conscious Detachment.
Buddha's earthly teachings are best summarized with one of his statements,
"It is your resistance to what is that causes your suffering."
and by suffering, he meant everything that doesn't work in your life;
relationship problems, loss of loved ones, loneliness, sickness,
accidents, guilt, monetary hardship, unfulfilled desires, and so on. When
you accept what is, you accept the unalterable realities in your life
without resisting them. Some things are facts. They exist, and no matter
how much you resist them, there is nothing you are going to be able to do
about them. Change what you can change, but have the wisdom to accept
unalterable situations as they are, without wasting mental or physical
energy attempting to change what you cannot change. Out of acceptance
comes involved detachment. The ability to enjoy all the positive aspects
of life, but to allow the negative to flow through you with out resistance
and without affecting you.
Law of Gratitude.
From the perspective of Karma and the Law of One, the more you give, the
more you will receive. The more you assist others, the more you will
assist yourself. The power of this Law also works in your day-to-day life.
Law of Fellowship.
When two or more people of similar vibration are gathered for a shared
purpose, their combined energy directed to the attainment of that purpose
is doubled, tripled, quadrupled or more. This esoteric awareness has been
used by covens, esoteric religions, healing groups, and recently,
worldwide meditations for world peace.
Law of Resistance.
That which you resist you draw to you, and you will perpetuate its
influence upon your life. Resistance is fear, so it is something you need
to Karmically resolve. The Law of Resistance assures that you let go of
the fear by encountering it until you are forced to deal with it by
learning conscious detachment.
may have a strong resistance toward people of the Asian race; Black race,
Jewish race, your mother-in-law. Your resistance is fear. The quickest way
to overcome that which you fear is through direct experience, thus you
will reincarnate as an Asian, Black, Jew, or mother in-law in a future
lifetime. When you attain Master of Life awareness and stop resisting
[your fear] by consciously detaching from the negativity, the problem will
be resolved. Most disharmonious situations are solved through a change in
your viewpoint. By changing your perspective, you can usually eliminate
the effects of a problem, and if you are no longer affected by a problem,
you no longer have a problem, although nothing about the problem situation
may have changed. Another aspect of the Law of resistance states, that
which you resists, you become, if not in this lifetime, in a future
Law of Attraction.
"Where your attention goes, your energy flows." You attract what
you are and that which you concentrate upon. If you are negative, you draw
in and experience negativity. If you are loving, you draw in and
experience love. You can attract to you only those qualities you possess.
So, if you want peace and harmony in your life, you must become peaceful
The Law of Reflection.
This Law says that the traits you respond to in others, you recognize in
yourself, both positive and negative. It has four primary manifestations:
That which you admire in others, you recognize as
existing within yourself;
That which you resist and react to strongly in others is
sure to be found within yourself;
That which you resist and react to in others is something
which you are afraid exists within you; and,
That which you resist in yourself, you will dislike in
In other words, you have chosen to incarnate upon the
manifest plane to learn to rise above the effect of fear. Those fears will
always be reflected in your reactions to others, Thus your goals are very
obvious once you recognize how to perceive them. As you let go of the
fear, you automatically open to expressing more unconditional love.
Law of Unconditional Love.
The expression of unconditional love will eventually result in harmony.
Unconditional love is not romantic love. It is the acceptance of others as
they are without judgment or expectations. It is total acceptance of
others without attempting to change them, except by our own positive
example. The law of unconditional love says, "If you go out of your
way to express unconditional love, you automatically rise above fear, and,
as you transcend your fears, you automatically open to the expression of
Law of Magnetic Affinities.
By Astrologically choosing the time and place of your birth, you determine
the nature or the effects you will experience in your life. On the other
side, before we are born, we make decisions about the lifetime we will be
entering into. You chose your parents, other souls to interact with you,
and the Astrological configurations of your birth which determine your
character, personality, abilities, restrictions, and timing for strengths
and weaknesses. If all of this seems too complicated to be real, be aware
that you are only using five to ten percent of the capacity of your brain.
And the brain-mind researchers say the human brain has 200,000 times the
capacity of the greatest computer ever built. Such calculations as I've
just described would be no problem for such a computer.
Law of Abundance.
You have within yourself everything required to make your earthly
incarnation a paradise if you choose to accept that which is your divine
birth-right. We live in a Universe of abundance, although the majority of
those populating our planet appear to view it as a Universe of scarcity.
Law of Divine Order,
If you seek to understand the Law of Divine Order, study the natural
balance of nature, for it works very much the same way. Everything is as
it should be, although mankind (our energy gestalt) is far from
experiencing its potential of total harmony. There are no accidents. Your
energy, translated into thoughts, words, emotions, and deeds, causes all
your experiences. This assures that you always have the learning
opportunities you require to resolve your Karma, and, as with you, the
collective thoughts, words, emotions, and deeds of mankind create the
environment for us all. If enough souls focus their energy upon peace, we
will have peace. If the majority of souls are filled with anger, we may
all have to experience war. We are all one, and like the many
sub-personalities within you, the dominant traits of mankind (the entire
gestalt) will emerge to resolve our group Karma.
Drs. Milanovich and McCune in, The Light Shall Set You Free (1998), state there are 12 Universal Laws, and 21 sub-laws, that describe ways in which cause and effect are related. The Universal Laws can also be viewed as guidelines for behaviors that will enhance our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual growth. Dr. Bailey works with her clients to help them understand and apply these laws to their lives.
The Universal Laws are all inter-related and are founded
on the understanding that everything in the universe is energy, including us,
and that energy moves in a circular fashion. At the microscopic level, we are a
whirling mass of electrons and energy atoms spinning rapidly. In fact,
everything in the world is comprised of energy and we are intimately connected
with this sea of energy, this sea of whirling electrons.
Our thoughts, feelings, words, and actions are all forms
of energy. What we think, feel, say, and do in each moment comes back to us to
create our realities. Energy moves in a circle, so what goes around comes
around. The combined thoughts, feelings, words and actions of everyone on the
planet creates our collective consciousness, it creates the world we see before
The exciting news is, because our thoughts, feelings,
words and actions create the world around us, we have the power to create a
world of peace, harmony and abundance. In order to do this, it is essential that
we learn to control our thoughts and emotions. Understanding the Universals Laws
help us to do this.
1. The Law of Divine Oneness:
The Law of Divine Oneness helps us to understand that we
live in a world where everything is connected to everything else. Everything we
do, say, think and believe affects others and the universe around us.
2. The Law of Vibration:
This Universal Law states that everything in the Universe
moves, vibrates, and travels in circular patterns. The same principles of
vibration in the physical world apply to our thoughts, feelings, desires, and
wills in the Etheric world. Each sound, thing, and even thought has its own
vibrational frequency, unique unto itself.
3. The Law of Action:
The Law of Action must be applied in order for us to
manifest things on earth. Therefore, we must engage in actions that support our
thoughts, dreams, emotions and words.
4. The Law of Correspondence:
This Universal Law states that the principles or laws of
physics that explain the physical world – energy, Light, vibration, and motion
– have their corresponding principles in the etheric or universe. “As above,
5. The Law of Cause and Effect:
This Universal Law states that nothing happens by chance
or outside the Universal Laws. Every action has a reaction or consequence and we
“reap what we have sown.”
6. The Law of Compensation:
This Universal Law is the Law of Cause and Effect applied
to blessings and abundance that are provided for us. The visible effects of our
deeds are given to us in gifts, money, inheritances, friendships, and blessings.
7. The Law of Attraction:
This Universal Law demonstrates how we create the things,
events, and people that come into our lives. Our thoughts, feelings, words, and
actions produce energies which, in turn, attract like energies. Negative
energies attract negative energies and positive energies attract positive
8. The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy:
This Universal Law states that all persons have within
them the power to change the conditions in their lives. Higher vibrations
consume and transform lower ones; thus, each of us can change the energies in
our lives by understanding the Universal Laws and applying the principles in
such a way as to effect change.
9. The Law of Relativity:
This Universal Law states that each person will receive a
series of problems (Tests of Initiation) for the purpose of strengthening the
Light within. We must consider each of these tests to be a challenge and remain
connected to our hearts when proceeding to solve the problems. This law also
teaches us to compare our problems to others’ problems and put everything into
its proper perspective. No matter how bad we perceive our situation to be, there
is always someone who is in a worse position. It is all relative.
10. The Law of Polarity:
This Universal Law states that everything is on a
continuum and has an opposite. We can suppress and transform undesirable
thoughts by concentrating on the opposite pole. It is the law of mental
11. The Law of Rhythm:
This Universal Law states that everything vibrates and
moves to certain rhythms. These rhythms establish seasons, cycles, stages of
development, and patterns. Each cycle reflects the regularity of God’s
universe. Masters know how to rise above negative parts of a cycle by never
getting too excited or allowing negative things to penetrate their
12. The Law of Gender:
This Universal Law states that everything has its
masculine (yang) and feminine (yin) principles, and that these are the basis for
all creation. The spiritual Initiate must balance the masculine and feminine
energies within herself or himself to become a Master and a true co-creator with
In addition to the 12 Universal Laws, Drs. Milanovich and
McCune (1998) state there are 21 sub-laws of the Universe that are governed by
the Higher Self. Using Milanovich and McCune’s stellar work, Dr. Bailey works
with her clients to understand and apply these laws to their lives by first
differentiating between the voice of the ego and that of the Higher Self, and
then by practicing techniques designed to align one’s self with her or his
Laws: We are beings of energy. Energy is governed by universal
laws and principles. These laws come from and are imbued with Spirit. They are
Divine Laws. There are many laws that govern us at our different levels of
being: Spiritual Laws, Mental/Emotional Laws, and Physical laws. Our egos, with
functions on the mental/emotional level, try to control these laws. These laws
dictate the results of our thoughts and actions.
When we perform an action our put out thought,
we try to control the results. But we cannot as there are too many laws working
at too many levels for the ego to manage. The best we can do is to perform our
actions consciously, with good intentions, and leave the results or consequences
up to Spirit or Divine Law. For example, only a fool would stand in front of a
moving train and demand Spirit to save him or her. Physical laws dictate that
the impact of a moving train on the human body will kill it. Further, to make
such a demand on Spirit is the ego's feeble attempt to control Spirit through
giving Spirit temptations or tests . Modern science is continually discovering
laws at the physical and mental/emotional levels. We intuitively know many of
these laws such as the Law of Love. We are also discovering many of these laws
through our life lessons. A few of laws are addressed below.
How often have we heard the words: "God is Love". St. Francis of
Karma means nothing more that "action". The Law of Karma is the Law of
Cause and Effect. Every action or thought has an effect or consequence. The
nature of that effect depends upon the nature of the cause. If the cause is
"good", the effect will be "good". If the cause comes from
negative thoughts or evil, the results will be equally negative or evil. We reap
what we sow. If a person sows evil, they will eventually reap what they have
sown. Freedom from the Law of Karma requires us to be unattached to the results
of our actions, provided we perform them with good intentions, following Divine
Law of Reincarnation : This the Law of Death and Rebirth . It involves our
soul's cyclical return to the earth or other planes until we free ourselves from
our negative karma (Samskaras) and can be purified and unified permanently into
the One source. We are all energy fixed in time and space based on the Law of
Causality (Karmic Law). The difference between the cause and effect is merely
the name and form we take on. Beings that do not obtain liberation, manifest
again, and again, with their desires, attachments, and latent tendencies (Samskaras).
Law of Forgiveness: We cannot purify ourselves as long as we harbor negative
feelings of hate, anger, intolerance, criticism, etc. towards others. It is in
forgiving others that we forgive ourselves. Simply put, we cannot be forgiven
until we first forgive others.
Law of Abundance: As a person thinks in their heart, so are they. We create our
realities with our thoughts. If we think good and beauty, so shall we find good
and beauty. What we hold in our consciousness expresses itself in life. If we
hold poverty, illness, war, and other negative thoughts, they will manifest.
Thus what we think or visualize comes into manifestation. Learn to create in
life that which we want.
of Unification: All souls are unified in the one soul of the Great Spirit once
they have obtained liberation, freedom from karma.
of Empowerment: We are empowered. We have a choices. We can choose our thoughts
and visualizations. We are co-creatures with Spirit. Behind all creation is pure
energy, one essence or Spirit. We have a powerful tool. That tools is our
thoughts and visualizations. With our thoughts and visualizations we can create
our own realities. Our every mood can create good or otherwise. What we call
forth in others is actually within us. If you look at another and see good or
bad, so it is. Actually, it is neither good or bad, but is merely what we see
and call it. You can create what you want in life by by taking your attention
away from the things you do not want and refocusing on the positive things you
do want. Remember, where you attention goes, your energy flows.
UNIVERSAL SPIRITUAL LAWS OF CREATION
