Hello and welcome to part two of this article-series!
Now with my last post on the Law of Mentalism, lets pick up on to the second law, the Law of Correspondence
This law states, “as above; so below; as within; so without.” The meaning is simple, your outer world(your reality) is a complete reflection of what you believe to be true(on the “inside”)
Similarly like the first Hermetic Law, the Law of Mentalism; the Law of Correspondence works within the confines of a person’s self talk and habits
Whereas, the Law of Mentalism makes whatever you believe to be true in your universe(reality), the Law of Correspondence tells you that if you want to change your reality it must start within
Lets look at a hypothetical situation:
A man around the age of 35 looks at himself in the mirror and says to himself, “I need to get in shape! My body has gained a little weight and I’m not happy with it. But I’m not too sure if I can stay motivated to do it. Matter of fact, forget it, I’ll always be like this.”
In this situation this man has thought to himself he’s not happy with the way his body is, and is looking to change it. Unfortunately he has already given up and decided to stay where he knows he doesn’t want to be.
Now this story isn’t to shame anyone’s body, because as long as you love yourself the way you are that’s all that matters. But for our hypothetical middle aged man, you can tell he’s not happy and wants change, but he doesn’t want to change his self talk and habits
A person who truly wants to change his life must look within their selves and discover any limiting belief or habits that prevents that change from occurring.
To make it simple, change the way you think, and you will become whatever it is you want to be. Of course make realistic changes, no one’s going to become a billionaire mogul overnight. But anything is possible if you put your mind to it!
The third Hermetic Law is the Law of Vibration. Its law states that everything moves, everything vibrates, and nothing is at rest
If you were to take a rock and examine its molecular structure, you’d find that it is indeed “vibrating”, or moving. On a metaphysical(spiritual) viewpoint of this law, the way to work with this is to imagine how something would feel if you were to have it right now; say like a million dollars ,or, a new job. It can be anything you want
To attract that same vibration of [insert what you want] into your life, imagine how happy you would be, how easy life would be, or even how proud your family would be, for it to be happening right now. Anything that gets you into the mindset of it already being there counts
I’ll let you in on a secret. There are two conscious minds that everyone has(there may be more but I’m keeping it simple), the conscious mind, and the subconscious mind
Your conscious mind is your everyday, awoke, thinking mind that goes to sleep at night. Your subconscious mind is what controls your bodily habits when you’re not aware, say like a routine that you do so often you forget you’ve done it.
The difference between these two is that the subconscious mind doesn’t sleep, it’s always functioning, and it can’t tell the difference between good and bad. Nor can it tell whatever you daydream about is actually happening to you, or, is a figment of your imagination
So, by the way the Universal Laws works, and how your subconscious mind works, just imagining and being in the moment of wherever your visualization takes you, is actually happening. Visualize it enough and it will actually affect your reality(universe)
Okay, so with my preferred structure of keeping things short and to the point, I will end part two here. As always, do your own research to get an even better perspective of these laws and leave your thoughts below
Thank you for reading!
Oh, hello again and welcome back! I’m glad you’ve returned because I would like to share some knowledge that can help make you turn your own lives around
If you haven’t read my last post Meditation Made Easy, click the link and it’ll bring you right to it
If you don’t know, an affirmation is a repeated word or phrase that a person can use to bring about positive changes. The one thing a person may not know is that they use negative affirmations all the time
Let me give you an example as to what I mean:
Say you wanted more financial abundance in your life. An easy positive affirmation is,”I am financially abundant.” Or,”I am attracting wealth with ease.”
While those are good affirmations, the only problem is the opposite of those phrases a person repeats to themselves daily:
“I am never going to make enough money.” And,”Why am I always having money problems”
Everyone must be careful of what they say to themselves out of habit. Saying a positive affirmation is only half the battle, the other half is censoring what you unconsciously repeat
With that said here’s the perfect book for you all to read. I myself highly suggest reading it, and many more like it to get a better scope of how to control your life, starting with the spark of it all: You
What is meditation?
I’m glad you asked! To put it simply, meditation is all about focusing the mind and concentrating on things such as your breath, for example
It can also be seen as daydreaming (with a purpose), which works well with the Laws of the Universe.( I’ll address them all in a separate post, but I digress)
In my experience, you don’t have to sit in lotus pose if you choose not to. It’s as simple as either laying down, or, sitting in a comfortable chair.
You can even listen to your favorite music of choice. And, if you’re laying down meditating, try not to fall asleep; if you do, that’s great. You’ve made your body and mind relaxed, the trick is to not fall asleep so keep practicing!
As for what to meditate on? That solely depends on you, dear reader. For beginners I’d say to focus on your breathing
Focus on feeling your breath on the inhale, and on the exhale. In through your nose, out through your mouth. Or whichever is comfortable for you.
What works for me, may not work for you, so bear that in mind as you learn different techniques.
I am an advocate for doing your own research on topics, and I would highly suggest you research it as well. You may learn new techniques, whether its for visualizing or breathing.
I love to learn new things so let me know in the comments anything you want to add, or teach
