Universal Law

Universal Law

Author: Tony Davies

Have you ever had “one of those days” when absolutely everything goes wrong? Have you ever wondered why some people are successful, while others spend their entire lives struggling? Do you ever get the feeling that someone is out to get you because everything you touch goes wrong?

If you’re like most people, these thoughts do occur to you from time to time. But what is the answer to these questions? Is it a question of luck, could it be fate or is there something else going on here of which most people are unaware?

The answer is both all around us and within us, and is called Universal Law. Just like there are Natural Laws that govern nature (such as gravity), there are other Laws which govern all that happens in the universe. From the spiritual to the physical to the mental, everything that happens does so according to Law.

You see, the Universe around us is a very orderly place in which nothing occurs by chance. Even though one cannot see the Laws, or hear them, smell them or taste them, they are there. They apply to everything and everyone – nothing is exempt. Whether one is aware of these Laws or not, they still apply - just like the Law of Gravity. Even though one may not be aware of or understand Gravity, it always works. No matter who you are, if you decide to step off the top of a tall building, you will fall at an increasing rate of speed until you reach terminal velocity or until you impact the ground.

So what are these Laws and how do they work? There are literally dozens of Universal Laws that exist, but for ease of understanding, they can be distilled down to a main seven:

1. Law of Control

2. Law of Accident

3. Law of Cause & Effect

4. Law of Belief

5. Law of Expectation

6. Law of Attraction

7. Law of Correspondence

From these seven, everything else flows. The beauty of the Laws is that once one understands and lives in accordance with them, life becomes extremely simple.

Law of Control

The Law of Control simply states that we have high self-esteem and feel good about ourselves to the exact degree that we feel we are in control of our lives. Unfortunately, the majority of the population does not live according to the Law of Control, but rather by its inverse, the Law of Accident. The truth of the matter is that every one of us is in total control of our life, but until one takes the step to determine that they are personally responsible for what happens to them, then they cannot help but live by Accident.

Law of Accident

This Law states that we feel badly about ourselves and have low self-esteem to the degree that we feel events and circumstances control our lives. In other words, we are the victims of whatever else happens around us. If good things happen, then we benefit, but if bad things happen, we play the victim.

Law of Cause & Effect

This Law is also known as the Iron Law of Human Destiny because it is so profound and powerful. Simply stated, the Law of Cause & Effect says that everything happens for a reason. All actions have consequences, as do all inactions. Distilled down to the simplest possible terms, this law states that for every effect in one’s life, there is a specific cause. The law can also be applied in the physical sense through examination of Sir Isaac Newton’s third Law of Motion, which states that “for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” If, for example, you were to hold your hand over a candle’s flame (the cause) the effect would be that your hand would burn and it would hurt!

The truly wonderful thing about this law is that by definition then, we should be able to manifest that which we truly want (the effect), simply by exerting the same causes that others before us have exerted and been successful.

Law of Belief

The Law of Belief states that whatever you believe with feeling and conviction becomes your reality. It is not until you change your beliefs that you can begin to change your reality and your performance.

You have heard the doubters and the naysayers out there who always proclaim “I’ll believe it when I see it!” In reality, it is the other way around; it is not until you believe it, that you will see it (no matter what “it” is)! Self-limiting beliefs are perhaps the most detrimental of all thoughts, since they absolutely will keep you from the success that you may want, but don’t believe you can attain. There is an old saying that goes ”whether you think you can or you can’t, your right!” This saying is completely congruent with the Law of Belief.

Law of Expectation

Simply stated, the Law of Expectations tells us that whatever one expects, with confidence, becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. When one expects with confidence that good things will happen, they usually will. If, on the other hand, one expects a negative outcome to a situation, then the outcome will usually be negative.

Our expectations play a key role in our own outcomes and they also have a remarkable effect on the people around us. What we expect from those around us determines our attitude toward them more than any other factor. In turn, the people around us tend to reflect our attitudes right back at us - whether the expectations and attitudes are positive or negative, good or bad.

Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction states that we attract into our lives, that which we focus our thoughts upon. If your thoughts are constantly on positive outcomes and good results, then that is what we will manifest. If, on the other hand, your predominant thoughts are on negative outcomes and poor results, then that is what you will attract. This is based on the fact that the Universe is simply vibrational energy in motion. Emotions, thoughts, feelings and objects – absolutely everything has a vibrational frequency. Since like attracts like, it is only logical that the vibrational frequency of your predominant thoughts will attract results that have a similar vibrational frequency. We know that emotions that are love-based (love, desire, happiness, wonder, joy etc.) have a very high vibrational frequency, whereas emotions that are fear-based (anger, hatred, intolerance, fear, sadness etc.) vibrate at a very low frequency.

Law of Correspondence

“As within, so without” is an old saying that perfectly describes the Law of Correspondence. This simply means that what happens on the outside is merely a reflection of what is happening on the inside. Your outer world is a reflection of your inner world. An individual that is unhappy and living in conflict with themselves, will always exhibit negative behaviors on the outside. Sometimes, one can mask these negative behaviors and thoughts, but the true feelings will eventually reveal themselves. Everything in our lives is a mirror of what is happening within us. If you want to make your outside life better, the only way to accomplish this is to change what is happening on the inside.

In order to live the successful, happy life we all deserve, it is necessary to understand and live by Universal Law. The best way to do this is to first and foremost, take control over your thoughts and to stay in the present moment. Ask yourself constantly; "What am I thinking about right now?" If the answer is something negative, then take the opportunity to change your thoughts. This will start to put you back in control of your life which is the first step to lasting happiness and peace of mind!

Quantum Physics and Life

Why Study Quantum Physics -- Quantum Physics and Life (achieving health, wealth, and happiness)

Author:Jason Randhawa

The only answer you need to the question, "why study quantum physics?" is because you can learn how to consciously create your reality. Quantum physics is the only science that takes you (as the observer) into consideration. It is, in my opinion, the most empowering science.

When you apply the theories of quantum physics to your life, you will experience health, wealth, and happiness. Quantum physics teaches us that our observations bring the world into existence and therefore provides us with the opportunity to change both us and the world.

Your reality is in the form of possiblities laying out in front of you. Those possibilities remain as such, awaiting consciousness to choose from among them and bring the actual events into experience. This is what you are doing on a constant basis. Even right now, you are choosing the event of reading this, out of the infinite possiblities of things you could be doing right now. The important thing, that you should realize, is that you choose!

Many quantum physicists explain that we choose our reality, through our thoughts. The best scientific experiment done on this was what Dr. Emoto did with water. If you don't already know, he developed a technique using a very powerful microscope in a very cold room along with high-speed photography, to photograph newly formed crystals of frozen water samples. With this technology, Dr. Emoto then produced different focused intentions through written and spoken words and literally presented it to the same water samples, the water appeared to "change its expression".

Dr. Emoto discovered that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward them. He found that water from clear springs and water that has been exposed to loving words shows brilliant, complex, and colorful snowflake patterns. In contrast, polluted water, or water exposed to negative thoughts, forms incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors.

More scientific evidence of the power of thoughts in creating reality comes from a recent study done at Harvard by Ellen Langer and Rebecca Levy. They compared memory loss of elderly people from different cultures. Their findings were that Americans, who live in a culture that fears old age and believes that our powers decline as we age, had substantial memory loss. Compared to elderly Chinese, whose culture holds older people in high esteem, showed almost no memory loss.

As you can see, our beliefs and ideas that we take for granted are constantly affecting our reality.

To be able to use quantum physics to better your life, which is the best reason why you should study quantum physics, you must realize that you do create your own reality. This puts you in a point of power. From here, you must simply think thoughts that will attract whatever it is that you want from life (health, wealth, and happiness).

Universal Secrets of Turning Adversity Into Possibilities

Universal Secrets of Turning Adversity Into Possibilities

 by Stephen Hopson

The secret is this: Napoleon Hill once said "Every adversity carries within it the seed of equal or greater benefit."

If in the midst of great pain, discouragement or heartbreak you seek that seed and fertilize it, you will eventually overcome adversity and turn it into a university of possibilities.

Think about it. The universe is governed by laws. It is knowledge of these laws and using them to your advantage to achieve your dreams that will determine your life's path.

One of my favorite universal laws is the law of giving. This lends credence to the idea of asking others, "how may be of service to you?" When we give and expect nothing in return, the universal law of giving operates in a way that you get something in return. There is a constant exchange of energy between you and the universe. When you give, you get.

One word of caution. Universal laws are not meant to be manipulated. If you simply give to get, you cause the flow to stop. When you give with your heart and with no expectations, you will receive much more. What goes out must come back. Such is the dynamic energy that defines life.

Deepak Chopra said in his book "The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success" that in every seed is the promise of a thousand forests. But the seed must not be hoarded; it must give its intelligence to the fertile ground."

The same thing can be said of sharing our knowledge and talents with others so that they may benefit. Perhaps your knowledge and experience will help others shave some time off the learning curve.

Perhaps you have money to give away. Money is a form of energy. If you hoard it, it will not circulate for you. If you want to make more money, give away some of what you have now and watch your abundance grow!

The return is dependent on the amount you give from the heart without any strings attached. Give with joy. Give with faith. Give with confidence that you are not losing anything.

The universal law of giving also covers receiving. Be open to receiving as well as giving. It doesn't have to be anything materialistic. When someone pays you a compliment, thank that person from the bottom of your heart. If you're outside and the birds are singing, be thankful for the divine gift of hearing.

Be in a grateful frame of mind and open to receiving gifts. It may not come in the form you expect but they are gifts nevertheless. Accept them graciously.

When you give and receive graciously and with gratitude, you allow the universe to keep the circulation flowing.

Food for thought: Where ever you walk today, give someone a gift. It could be a prayer, flower, a compliment. You could send an email to someone you've been mentoring with a valuable tip. Provide others with value - find a way to enrichen their lives. It could be a statement of confidence in them. It could be a quote you read in a book that would help someone at that moment. When you receive a gift, accept it with gratitude. Keep the cycle flowing.
