When you first think about the universe and manifestation and creating a bigger and better life, your mind instantly thinks of the Law of Attraction.
One because it’s one of the most well know laws that everyone and their old dog Fred talks about and two because that’s the law the movie “The Secret” is based on.
You may then also be wondering why you’re trying to manifest something and it’s not working.
That’s because the law of attraction is not the only law of the universe.
In fact, there are 12 universal laws that all work together. And in order to master manifestation, you first need to get a handle on these important universal laws.
12 Universal Laws
1. Law of Oneness
The Law of Oneness states that we are all connected, we are all one, we are all one with nature, animals, the planet and we are all one with the universe.
This law is very much connected with that saying we all heard in school, “don’t do to others what you don’t want done to you”.
A modern example of this is if you see someone on social media that has something you want, a new car, a pool, whatever, and you become jealous and begin to speak or think negativity about that person.
Your subconscious mind takes everything literally and personally and thinks you are saying those negative things to yourself and will begin to find evidence and proof of what you’re saying.
The Law of Oneness teaches us to be kind to others even in our thoughts and remember that what we say about someone is actually being said to ourselves.
2. Law of Vibration
Everything in this universe holds a vibration and each vibration emits a specific frequency.
There are high vibrations (positive) and low vibrations (negative) and every single thought, emotion and feeling have a different vibration.
The vibration you feel is based on how you feel about the situation, person, place or thing usually based on past experiences.
Such as a puppy may make you experience a high vibration, meaning feelings of joy, love, happiness. But money may make you feel lower vibrations such as feelings of anxiety, anger, frustration, or sadness.
Depending on the vibration you feel, high vibe or low vibe, you will attract more experiences into your life that emit those vibrations.
Such as the puppy and feeling joy, love and happiness. You’ll experience more things in life that emit those high vibrational feelings and vise versa.
This is why you’ll hear people ask how to stay in a “high vibe” state or how to raise your vibration because they want more high vibrational things to come into their life.
3. Law of Correspondence
The Law of Correspondence is similar to the Law of Oneness. It states that everything in your outer world is a direct reflection of your inner world (your thoughts and feelings).
In order to change anything from the outside, you must first change from the inside.
If you want to lose weight but hold the belief that’s it not possible for you or you’re jealous of others can lose weight more easily, the outside variables (such as exercise & diet) will only get you so far.
Change begins on the inside.
4. Law of Cause & Effect
This is one of the most straight forward laws and is usually referred to as karma, whatever you put out into the universe will come back to you.
Everything you do has a reaction and/or consequence.
This law is just another reminder to be intentional with what we say, what we do and what we think because it will all come back to us in some way or another.
5. Law of Attraction
Alright, for the most part, we all know what the law of attraction is but let’s break it down anyway. The Law of Attraction states that like attracts like, like vibrations will always attract like vibrations.
If you’re feeling joy and happiness, you’ll attract more things into your life that bring you the feeling of joy and happiness and vise versa with negative emotions, thoughts, and feelings.
Again, your vibration is determined by what you focus on and how you feel about it.
Let’s say you’re focusing on money and wanting to bring more money into your life but you feel feelings of guilt, anger, frustration, sadness, fear, anxiety every time you think about money, you’re just going to attract more situations around money that make you feel those feelings.
Your subconscious mind is always trying to prove you right, it’s a “yes man or woman” and always says yes to you based on your thoughts and feelings.
The idea here is to match the energy of what you want, ie. love, happiness, abundance (all high vibrational things) by embodying the feelings you would feel if you already had those things you want.
6. Law of Action
The Law of Action states that no physical manifestation happens without physical action.
Basically, you can’t just sit on the couch and think about a new car and then receive that new car without taking the physical action of going to a dealership, making the purchase, etc.
The best type of action to take is inspired action.
Inspired action is action that feels good, feels right, comes from a higher place and has higher vibe emotions associated with it.
And sometimes the easiest way to get clear on what actions you need to take is to take any kind of action because whether the action you took gets you closer to your goal or not, you’ll have clarity on what not to do so you figure out what needs to be done.
7. Law of Compensation
The Law of Compensation is very similar to the Law of Cause and Effect but states that whatever you put out you will receive back in the form of monetary blessings.
To utilize this law you want to give to others what you want to receive in return but the kicker is you must to it without any expectations.
There’s a much different energy when you volunteer because you have to in comparison to if you just wanted to help and weren’t required to and aren’t expecting anything in return.
That’s what this law is referring to, the way you feel and what you expect when doing a “good deed”.
8. Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy
The only constant is change.
This law states that higher vibrations consume and transform lower vibrations which means we all have the ability to change a lower vibration into a higher one.
If you have a friend that is in a lower vibration (negative emotions) and you are in a higher vibration (positive emotions), you are able to bring your friend into a higher vibrational state because high vibrations transform lower vibrations.
9. Law of Relativity
The Law of Relativity states that everything in life is neutral and is only given a meaning based on our feelings and emotions.
A blade of grass has no more meaning than 1 million dollars.
We just choose to give 1 million dollars a specific meaning based on what we were taught and the way we feel about it.
This law can be applied to challenges in life because we all are going to have them but how we deal with them depends on how we view them because everything is neutral.
You can choose to see challenges as lessons to learn and it’s up to you if you’re going to learn the lesson and move on or if you’re going to attract the same lesson again by repeating the same behavior and holding the same emotion.
10. Law of Polarity
The Law of Polarity can be frustrating at times because it can seem as though we’re manifesting things we don’t want.
But how do you get clarity on what you do want? By figuring out what you don’t want.
Maybe you went through a really tough breakup but that opened up space for you to find the person of your dreams that fit into your life much better than your ex.
Or you got fired from your job which opened up space for you to figure what you really want out of your next job opportunity.
This is when you can really use the Law of Relativity and chose to see the lessons and blessings in life and figure out what they’re trying to teach you.
11. Law of Rythm
Everything in life goes through an ebb and flow, a light and dark, a different season and this law reminds us to go with the flow and understand that nothing lasts forever.
When there is darkness, there will be light.
The easiest place to see this law is work is in the seasons.
Winter is a darker month, a colder month, and then there’s spring and summer and so on. Just as spring will always follow the winter, the harder parts of life will always give way to easier parts.
12. Law of Gender
The Law of Gender has nothing to do with biological sex but focuses on the feminine and masculine energies that everything in the universe has and the point of this law is to balance both energies equally.
Masculine energy is focused on the hustle and grind and work energy and the feminine energy is much more flowy and for receiving.
You can also think of these energies as yin and yang.
Both energies are required in life and both energies have a time and place to be used.
The goal is to be aware of both energies and try to balance them as much as you can to live a more comfortable life.
