Metaphysical Laws—The Twelve Universal Laws Explained in a Nutshell

Law of Attraction is only the beginning...

Many people are familiar with the “Law of Attraction” now due to the popularity of the book and movie “The Secret”. Unfortunately the laws of the universe are a bit more complicated than all that. Although movies like this are a great primer for introducing people to universal laws, they fall a bit short in their ability to teach people all they need to know. Due to its limited size, it over-simplified a lot of things that I feel are very important to understanding and working with the Universal laws in meaningful ways.

Many people get frustrated with trying to manifest their ideal reality. They try things like vision boards, affirmations, focusing on what they do want etc. only to find that they are still coming up short. They may target this energy to things like money or cars, when what they truly want is security and freedom. Does the law of attraction even work? Yes. Yes it does, but it requires a deeper understanding and application of all of the universal laws together in order to truly make it work in your life.

The law of attraction is merely one of the twelve – yes twelve, universal laws. Recognizing and getting a brief understanding of the full circle of universal laws will make working with the “law of attraction” easier.

Trying to work with only the law of attraction is like trying to catch a fish without a hook – or bait, or the fishing pole. You could just hop in the water and try to grab the fish – but it sure is easier when you have a tool and know how to work with all of its respective, but interconnected parts.

So, here are the other universal laws explained in a nutshell with some real-life examples. More searching and seeking is recommended – but hopefully this will spark the desire to learn more.

The Law of Divine Oneness

There is one word I love that I believe sums this law up nicely – Namaste. In it's literal translation “I bow to you” what it truly means is I honor the place in you where the light of God abides – when I am in that place in me and you are in that place in you – there is one of us. In other words – all things are connected and we are all one. It is a way of acknowledging and recognizing that connection we all share.

All life, all energy comes from one source. We are all connected – period. It doesn't merely extend to those we deem likeable or those who believe what we do etc. We all come from the same source and are living expressions of the divine. We must learn to recognize the divinity that is within all things and respect it.

You are not a tiny, insignificant drop in a vast ocean. Your goal is to learn to see the ocean within the drop. Those who see themselves as perpetually “small” are sending vibrational energies that are also “small”. You are a part of an energy source that is so vast, so immeasurable that the mind cannot comprehend it. This lies at the core of you – and every being.

The Law of Vibration

This law states that all things are made of energy. You've like heard the phrase “vibes” as in “I didn't like that place it had a weird vibe”. We are able to intuitively sense the energies around objects, places, other people etc. The law of vibration tells us we must align our energy with what we want to attract. We do this through the power of our emotions (as a sort of barometer to tell us if we are on the right path) and our thoughts, which we can choose to redirect at any moment. Feelings and thoughts combined are powerful things.

A good lesson here is learn to let go! If something irritates you – bless it for teaching you a lesson in spiritual wisdom and then send it packing :) Not fully recognizing this law is also why the law of attraction fails miserably for many people. You must truly act as if you are already what you WANT to be – in order to align your energy with that and help it manifest. Notice I said “help” …. keep reading ;)

The Law of Action

This rule states that you must facilitate the other laws with inspired action. You cannot sit on your butt and expect things to fall into your lap without effort. Does this mean you have to struggle? Absolutely not! If you are “struggling” to reach your goals it means you are not aligned with them properly, or that they are not the right goals for you.

Hard work, when it is something you are passionate about, should be challenging, but also come easy. For me, it's writing. I know that my writing flows easily because it is what I love, and it is the tool that allows me to do what I am most passionate about – helping others. I also challenge myself to write in different ways and to try new things in life so I have more to write about! You must take inspired actions every day that help you move towards your goals. Without action, you might as well forget the rest.

The Law of Correspondence

This law states that your outer world reflects your inner world. Simply stated, you are destined to experience what you think about and your world reflects this to you every day. If you want to change external circumstances in your life, you must change your inner world first.

Those who seek inner peace and clarity find that their daily lives and routines flow more easily and harmoniously. They are better able to cope with life's little upheavals and carry on. Those who get stuck in anger, resentment, and other self-sabotaging emotions and beliefs find that they tend to draw more chaos into their lives – and they likely don't realize they are doing it.

For example, I turn the TV OFF. I read just enough news once or twice a week to stay abreast of what is going on. As a society we tend to focus on the negative – news broadcasts bombard us with hundreds of negative thoughts, images, etc. In turn, our society has become paranoid and fear fuels so many things.

When I was a kid I ran around outside until it was dark – today kids are stuck inside because everyone is terrified of the bogeyman. We have a skewed perception of how the world actually is because we feed that image regularly.

I refuse to live life according to fear. Want to see how beautiful the world is? Go outside on a sunny day and smile at a random stranger. Chances are they aren't going to mug or kill you – they'll probably smile back.

The Law of Cause and Effect

This law states that what you do comes back to you. Many spiritual traditions have taught this universal wisdom in various ways. The most well known “You reap what you sow” or “karma”. If you are passionate and driven in positive ways you will put forth powerful energy and actions that will return to you in the form of rewards. On the other hand, if you are negative and hurtful towards yourself and others, this returns to you as well in the form of consequences.

The Law of Attraction

Like attracts like. Positive energies will attract more positive energies and vice versa. This is why it is important to focus on manifesting positive energy through the use of the various laws of the universe. It goes beyond merely “wishing” or “hoping” or “visualizing” as so many others teach. If you want to attract positive energy – you have to line up with it and apply yourself.

Cosmic Voyage (powers of ten in the universe)

If you ever need proof that the universe and all things in it (yes that includes you!) are created to perfection watch the above documentary.

The Law of Compensation

You get back what you give to others. There is a saying “misery loves company”. It means that when you are miserable, you tend to attract other people who are also miserable, and it becomes a vicious circle that feeds on itself.

Fortunately, the opposite is true! If you want to receive more of something in your life; be what you want to see! Give freely to others what you hope to receive. Does this mean if you need more money you should throw away the money you do have? No, but you should be generous and share abundance according to your current capacity to do so.

Provide for those who are in need by giving of yourself. Be generous and share abundance in its many forms with others – and abundance and prosperity will return to you.

The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy

Energy is in constant motion and all energy eventually manifests. This law also states that you have the power to change your life. Higher vibrational energies consume lower energies, so if you don't like the path you are on – change it, or more importantly “allow” it to be changed.

Rather than try to “force your will” on people or circumstances, rearrange the way you think and choose to empower yourself. I call this the “learning to go with the flow” law. When we resist change or try to assert a false sense of control over the external world it always leads to struggle. We must learn to embrace change, work with energies and “allow” circumstances, opportunities, etc. to manifest according to divine providence.

The ego's need for a false sense of control can block the flow of positive energy that will actually bring you the ideal circumstances you are searching for. It is fear-based thinking and can undermine your progress in all the other areas if you don't recognize it.

The Law of Relativity

It is what it is. Nothing is good, bad, big, small, etc. until it has been experienced and compared to something else. This law also tells us that sometimes “s**t happens” ;). Energy is always manifesting – period.

This law teaches that every soul will face some challenges; it's what you do with those challenges that define you and determine what you become. You can “fold” under the pressure or rise above and allow your trials to strengthen you. Learn to use your life's challenges as stepping stones rather than stumbling blocks.

One strategy that works when you feel a bit overwhelmed is to know that regardless of what you are suffering at the moment, someone has it worse.

Keep things in perspective. That broken arm might hurt, but somewhere, someone else may have broken both arms and their leg! “This too shall pass”. In times of sorrow or adversity, learn to glean the wisdom and the blessings.

The Law of Polarity

All things have an opposite. Day and night, masculine and feminine, joy and sorrow. Without one the other would not exist. When working with universal laws we use polarity as a way to determine our focus.

Thoughts and ideas that are not working for your highest good can be removed by consciously directing your attention to their opposite. Feeling sad? Watch a funny movie. If you feel angry, rather than dwell on that emotion, focus on what you can do to manifest its opposite. In this way you find solutions that are inspired and empowering.

Anger is often demonized and as a result, we tend to push it down until it explodes into something destructive. If something angers you, turn it into proactive behavior. Don't complain or lash out - DO something.

The Law of Rhythm

“ To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven. ”

All energy vibrates and moves according to its own rhythm. These rhythms establish cycles and patterns. Think of the seasons, all of which form a full year. Each season has its own purpose and function, but is a vital part of the full circle.

Learn to harmonize with the higher vibrational energies that you seek to attract. Raise your vibration through the understanding and practice of the other universal laws, and harmonize with those higher energies.

Meditation is a means that many use to connect their energy to their source and as a result they maintain “higher frequencies” and that sense of connection throughout the day.

The Law of Gender

All things have both masculine and feminine energies – yin and yang. All things require space, time and nurturing to grow.

This law tells us that when we plant a seed(masculine) it requires time to grow and manifest(feminine). This is the law that requires patience and persistence and tells us not to give up before the goal is reached.

33 yrs traiiing path of the warrior path...people r nuts....keep the you going

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on July 22, 2019:

Many different philosophies touch on the same concepts yes. Kind of like every religion has their own version of the "Golden Rule" so to speak.

Maurice Glaude from Mobile on July 17, 2019:

Are most of these laws taught by a dferent name or teaching? They seem very familiar.

jack on May 01, 2019:

How does one know that these Law are true to all things? What constitutes them as Laws? When did they become Laws and not just theories? Just curious.

Regina A Brown from United States on January 31, 2019:

Thank You for this information. I know now what the Law of Attraction is and I will apply to it to my life. :)

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on July 14, 2018:

You're very welcome Roma, go forth and manifest great things in your life :)

Roma Alex on July 14, 2018:

Your article is exactly what I needed at this time exact time. Thanks, sister!

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on May 01, 2018:

Thanks for the read and comment Steven.

Steven M. on May 01, 2018:

I have been aware of the energy that makes all things tick from a young age and have learned to dial it in better as I've gotten older. I still struggle at times with all of it but always manage to put my feet back on the lighted path.

My relationship and home,work, etc, are strong and I know that staying in harmony with all creation is of vital importance.

Never a slave to money fashion or ego, my life, my family and the love I have for it and all the wonders of creation, have helped me and mine live more in harmony with all creation which I believe puts us closer to God and maybe what he really is trying to teach us. Thanks.

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on April 04, 2018:

Davey, I wrote this piece based on a lot of reading and studying over the years and the understanding I've developed on the subject. If you go to your favorite book store, search engines, etc. you too can find a lot of information and take what resonates with you and leave behind what doesn't. Have a wonderful day.

Davey on April 04, 2018:

What’s the source of the information on these 12 laws?

Who’s compiled and interpreted/coined them this way?

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on December 06, 2017:

Thanks for sharing your thoughts John. We are all living expressions of the source so indeed, we should look within more for our answers. Most people have been indoctrinated to distance themselves from "God"

John King on December 06, 2017:

I enjoyed the read very much and was in the 10 percent of people. I feel I need to explain my vote. I have been a guest at many parties pretending to have psychic powers. I had a lot of fun entertaining people with my so called abilities. I use regular playing cards and they would say what ever I wanted them to say. Like many preachers use the Bible. I have come to believe I know very little. God is inside everyone but few know to look there. Hugs love and light

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on November 22, 2017:

You're very welcome Flavio glad you found it helpful, Christin

Flavio on November 22, 2017:

Although I understand and use the law of attraction I was looking for an article to have a better understanding of it, and bang your webpage giving me awareness of the 12 laws and to reassure me of what I knew from other sources. Thanks a lot Christian. Love and Light

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on August 20, 2017:

Yes David, I believe so thanks for the read and comment.

david close on August 19, 2017:

this is all very cosmic and true

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on March 09, 2017:

With matches or a lighter yes

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on February 20, 2017:

A struggle is something where you keep running into obstacles, the process doesn't feel like a challenge, it feels like a battle. Challenge is positive, struggle is like a battle where you keep having problems and they don't seem to resolve. If you feel challenged and have to work hard to grow that's positive overall. If you are pursuing something and you never progress, your heart just isn't in it, or you have to constantly struggle/fight to get ahead and it brings you now joy - then you're on the wrong path.

StarQueen on February 20, 2017:

Hi Christin,

I have a question I hope you might be able to shed some light on. With regards to the Law of Action, you wrote if we are struggling to reach our goals maybe we not aligned with properly or they aren't right for us. What did you mean when you said "struggle"?

You said there should be challenges but also come easy. Looking for some clarification mostly because I would like to know if I am not aligned properly or if I'm pursuing goals that may not be right for me.

So, just not sure what you mean by "struggle" because I do believe there are challenges to a life that we love and desire.

Thank you!

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on January 20, 2017:

What many people refer to as "God" I view as sort of life itself - God to me is not a deity in the sky looking down on us, more the source or the all that is. As for the afterlife, I suppose we'll know when we get there. That being said, I do believe consciousness survives physical death. You would have known what I meant by "God" had you done more than skim by the way as I believe I explained it in this article and on my blog :) Thanks for skimming though :) Have a great day.

Nate Carter on January 19, 2017:

Hello, I skimmed through the website and long paragraphs of words, but I was wondering what is your view on the afterlife? because I seen the name God written a couple of times

Malizen on January 11, 2017:

Affirmations does work , without faith and feelings involved in your affirmations they does not is that simple . Another fact may be your subconscious beliefs sabotage your new affirmation so if you think ''Affirmations does not work'' you make from it affirmation it self - that kind of affirmation if much easier to believe and make it true cause your subconscious sabotage will rush it with such stronger energy that has been hold on for years and years there . Be aware of it , everything is possible , and when i say everything i mean it with whole my being ! Have great day

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on January 10, 2017:

You're very welcome Joseph, so glad you found it helpful :)

joseph lawson on January 10, 2017:

Thank you, thank you and thank you...

I believe I have found this at a very important and pivotal point in my life.

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on January 03, 2017:

Thanks Manu - so glad you enjoyed it.

Manu Garg on January 03, 2017:

Its was nice and very informative.

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on September 21, 2016:

Hence the title "in a nutshell" and the fact it's an article and not a book RealandTrue, but thanks for your input.

RealAndTrue on September 21, 2016:

I'm sorry. I'm not sure why I feel the need to respond here. Maybe its the underlying tone (?).

This is a good Basic article, but there is so much more to this. It can be made to make sense theoretically, but practically, there is a lot more to it.

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on September 15, 2016:

Sadly, HP did away with the vote up and like buttons many months ago, but I do appreciate the comment and five star rating :D thanks so much!

maggs224 from Sunny Spain on September 15, 2016:

An excellent hub well written and enjoyable to read. I have only just come across the law of attraction recently and your hub has drawn the 12 laws together in a very easy to understand manner. It has been a while since I have commented on a hub and I would normally have hit like and vote up but I can't find those things so I will have to settle with giving you my own ***** five star rating :D

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on September 15, 2016:

Thank you Paula, I appreciate it.

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on September 15, 2016:

Thanks so much I really appreciate it and I'm so glad you enjoyed the hub :)

Way to go, Christin!! CONGRATULATIONS!!

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on September 15, 2016:

Universal Law is the foundation of all that we do think and say.

following the laws is what brings us in line with Manifesting and enlightenment.

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on July 20, 2014:

Thanks Jaz for commenting and sharing peaceful vibes :) The feedback is much appreciated.

Jaz on July 20, 2014:

Thanks for the hub and posting. My hope is for all to see we have more alike than dislike with Donnie, Sinbad the Sailor and All for that matter. May we feel, think and allow harmony to rise through sharing of knowledge and beliefs, both powerful and really one of the same. Namaste.

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on April 12, 2014:

Thanks for the comments - I agree with you. Unfortunately, it can be hard for many people to realize due to all the things that seem to want to sabotage individualism.

Grace Marguerite Williams from the Greatest City In The World-New York City, New York on April 11, 2014:

I believe that success comes when one is aligned with one's true talents and purpose. If one is doing something that is disconnected from his/her true talents and purpose, the road to success will be difficult and if success is achieved, it will not be an authentic success. I believe that success comes from knowing and realizing one's true passion and purpose in life.

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on February 03, 2014:

Thank you David :) much appreciated and many blessings to you as well.

David Samuel on February 03, 2014:

This HUB is a great refferance and will indeed be bookmarked, thank you. I scanned through the comments and am glad everyONEs opinions and beliefs are all in good faith and direction. Without words let's feel this great love our Heavenly Father and Divine mother have blessed us with. Without words let's feel the support our star brothers and sisters our giving us in the prolific time. Lets thank each other for allowing ourselves to express our perceptions and belifes so that we have something to referrance from. Remember it is what rresonates with YOU that matters. Feel your vibration rise as you swim in Divine love. Remember the seven sacraments of Truth

All is One

Honor One another

Honor Ones self

Love is Divine power

Surrender personal will to Divine Will


Stay in the Moment

Namaste friends and have a Happy 2014

Miguel hijo de Dios on December 13, 2013:

Have a nice day and i'm sure you're having a great Christmas! best regards from Venezuela ;)

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on December 13, 2013:

Thanks Miguel :) have a great day and I really appreciate your comments!

Miguel hijo de Dios on December 13, 2013:

I've watch it! is a cool show... i loved the time's behavior episode! all of that philosophical and brain pain is caused by the Morgan Freeman's excellent storytelling and tone of voice hahahaha.

"feel there is a magnificence and beauty to the process of life itself that we simply can't fully understand. " - That's called Faith! it doesn't matter if you think god is white with a beard, a blue boy with jewels, a fat indian dude or even a source of pure energy, those are just easy ways to meet and comprehend the idea of a God... But you are able to detect that there is something beyond our understanding and within us all and all around us! and i appreciate that on your writing! keep up the great job!

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on December 13, 2013:

Thank you Miguel. I appreciate it. There aren't as many polarities as people often perceive. While I consider myself technically an atheist (I don't believe in a diety), I am deeply spiritual and feel there is a magnificence and beauty to the process of life itself that we simply can't fully understand. In my way of thinking and exploring reality - science and "God" are not that far apart :). I have been watching a series lately "Through the Wormhole" narrated by Morgan Freeman - and it is truly special in its way of exploring all the larger questions also. It blends science nicely with exploring the larger mysteries of what is beyond our present understanding. It makes you philosophical and makes your brain hurt at the same time ;). I'd highly recommend watching it :)

Miguel hijo de Dios (The Observer)/Christian Mike on December 12, 2013:

My god Christin! what a nice article! i have criticized several hubs in here, but yours have the power to combine science (metaphysics, energy and laws) with religion (God, universe and divine) without making a conflict! Great way of seeing and living life and reality! That´s always been my way of perceiving it all... just letting it flow! having nice thoughts and feelings empowering the wisdom and clarity, realizing that we are not alone and our presence in this realm or life have a much bigger significant that most people think.

i encourage you to explain and train almost all the Ph. D's and "experts" that always have a mocking way of talking about this kind of deep topics just making a negative wiew of it just to show themselves as prepared and studied persons, who really don´t even know how to live their lives at it bests. (they do not even believe in God, much less understand that we are all united and belong to a single source)

"To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven" *_* Everything has its time!! Count me as a follower ;) PEACE!

Thanks for reading janesix

janesix on September 18, 2013:

This was a great post. I don't necessarily believe in the law of attraction, but some of the other laws seem to make sense to me.

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on August 16, 2013:

Thank you MDavisatTIERS for the lovely response. I agree it is a very disillusioning experience for most who try to implement fractured pieces of the whole works into their lives. They give up on it in frustration right before their lives can truly change for the better.

Marilyn L Davis from Georgia on August 16, 2013:

Excellent article. Having all 12 together allows us to see the flow and realtionship that each has to the other. I find it interesting that people take a particular law, usually attraction, and then become disallusioned when attraction does not seem to work in their lives.

As a person in long-term recovery for almost 25 years, the number 12 will attract my attention, and in hopping around, found this Hub. Awareness and Mindfullness will lead me where I need to go, I just need to be open to the possibilities and then thank the source, and the embodyment of the source for the guidance. So, thank you ChristinS for guidance. Voted up and following

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on August 06, 2013:

Thank you WiccanSage I appreciate the lovely comment.

Mackenzie Sage Wright on August 05, 2013:

I first started learning about these about 25 years ago, it was such an eye opener and no matter what has happened to me since then they've been proven over and over. Great hub, great presentation.

Viva Jones from UK on June 25, 2013:

This is an amazing hub that I've now bookmarked and will come back to again and again. A huge amount to take in but you've written it in such a clear and easy style - thank you!

Maggie Bennett from New York on March 15, 2013:

As a metaphysician I appreciate you educating the public. Well done. Great hub! Voted up and awesome.

Kerry43 on November 19, 2012:

Good afternoon, ChristinS, wow, such an interesting panel of comments!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading your article. Well done:)


Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on October 11, 2012:

Beautifully stated Crystal and how wonderful it is to open ones mind and heart to exploring our larger purpose - whether you believe it is a God or Diety or simply just something larger that we are all a part of - it's amazing to seek. I love how you describe your answers flowing gently to you and I believe that is because rather than trying to "make" God answer you or resisting dogma that didn't resonate with you, you opened up to the alternative which was "allowing" the universe to guide you. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts - well done.

Crystal Tatum from Georgia on October 11, 2012:

Wow - I hadn't read all the comments before I posted my first comment. I guess that saying is true - "The world is divided into people who think they are right." And with so much at stake concerning these questions - what is life, why are we here, who is God, how can we know God - I suppose it's no wonder our discussions can get heated.

Personally, I am only just coming to learn more about beliefs and practices that fall outside what is acceptable of the religion I was raised in. After more than a decade without praying, I only commenced to pray again after someone gently suggested to me that perhaps God wasn't what I thought, that I could be free even to define God for myself. I needed that sense of freedom to even be willing to try and connect with a higher power. I don't know if that's right or wrong, but I do know that it's more effective than not connecting at all. And I have felt a connection at times. I've heard that God only answers one prayer from the non-Christian - the prayer of salvation. But that's not true, because I'm not a Christian, and I have received specific guidance following prayer, guidance that I never would have dreamed up on my own, and it came to me easily and gently, and it was like floating versus struggling. So what is that? That's something, and it's something that didn't happen to me when I was praying to a God I was scared to death of and angry at, the God of the Bible. It happened when I prayed to a higher power that I can't quite define but that I believe at least has my best interest at heart and is wisdom, and yes, that wisdom is within me, if I still myself to access it. I don't know what is true, and I'm starting to doubt that there is one truth only, but I do it's surprising what can happen when you are open-minded.

OK, getting off my soap box for now...

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on October 11, 2012:

Thank you Crystal for reading and commenting much appreciated.

Crystal Tatum from Georgia on October 11, 2012:

What a fantastic and informative hub! I'm interested to learn more about these laws now. Voted up and sharing.

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on September 04, 2012:

thank you for the comment manatita44 Much appreciated :)

manatita44 from london on September 04, 2012:

Sound writing. Great detail and yes, good for creating awareness. Let us hope that these 12 laws help us all to be better children of the One.

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on June 16, 2012:

Thanks for reading and commenting CBartelmey. I don't mind the stir, because it means people are engaging and communicating and that is how we all learn and grow :) I will check out your hubs as well.

CBartelmey from Colorado, United States on June 16, 2012:

Well this caused quite a stir, but these topics usually do. I write on similar subjects so I will definitely be following you and I thought this was a well written Hub.

Donald Beres Jr from Valparaiso, Indiana on June 15, 2012:

I will be creating A hub Here Shortly As not to upset ChristinS Hub Here any more on what I believe. If you Like You can Seek It Out On My Hubpages Site. Sorry If I Hijacked your hub Posting ChristinS I just meant to Answer MizBejabbers comment to me. Donnie/ Sinbad the Sailor Man

Yes I did, Donnie/sinbad. I chose to enter this dimension with a flesh body as a housing for my soul. I also chose which family I would become part of (though I sometimes wonder why). I don't disagree with you that God exists or that the holy spirit existed at the beginning of what we call time. Perhaps I misunderstood you when I though you said that the only way to salvation was through Jesus. Jesus the body didn’t exist in the beginning, only the spirit did. That is strictly a man’s religion view. You say you are not a bible thumper, but your first post is exactly opposite to that. Is that what you really mean?

Your second post still speaks of God as an external creator that we have to “find”. The metaphysical viewpoint is that we are part of God and we either acknowledge that or we don’t. We don’t have to “go to the Source” because the source or God never left us. Meditation is to silence our own egos and listen to God, not to go looking for him.

Then I read your post to me which seems to contradict your first two posts.

Your third paragraph beginning "What I look to is the Creator.... Not man's understanding of the universal norms" disagrees with your first and second posts. I can't disagree with you on this at all. But I think the 12 universal laws are the creator’s law, not man’s law. I think that man incorporated bits and pieces of them into man’s religions. Would you please clarify your thinking for me on that.

Your posts seem to contradict themselves between metaphysics and man’s religion. Do you really know what you believe?

MizBejabbers true a one dimensional wheel can be traveled by an ant and the ant will eventually find the the Hub; most likely.

I am not a Bible worshiper or a Bible thumper. I do reference It quite often. Why? Because I believe what the inspired men of GOD also Believed and Believe. But before these laws were. The Creator was. Before these laws were. The Saviour was. The Word and the Saviour Are One in the same as the Creator.

What I look to Is the Creator Not His Laws as define by Men or this Natural Planet our earth. Not Man's Understanding of the universal Norms.

Which can be surpassed and circumvention at any time By either of the two I have mentioned herePlus One other known to some as the Holy Spirit. The Word became flesh, which this world knows in the form of our Lord and Saviour the Lord Jesus, the Christ. Who is God Almighty with us in this dimension as we are and as we were.

The 12 Laws as I see them Are but only what we can deduct and reason them to be. The Creator GOD has much more in store for Us all then these supposed 12 Laws of the Universe. He is not beholding to them in any other place but here and now as He has proclaimed the eternity is not in subject to these Laws of our known universe which I a sure you is a rather tiny and limited space.

Why would I take the view of men who do not even know the makings of their own back yard or all that the sea here holds, as they think they know the outer limits of our earthly realm.

True there are guide lines in place here; but not one is unbreakable or common for those who are not of this world or planet. There are limits placed upon us all who are Here at our own choosing. For believe it or not you as a spirit chose to enter this realm or dimension in a flesh body.

Thank you MizBejabbers for the lovely comment and I appreciate you reading and commenting :)

Doris James MizBejabbers from Beautiful South on June 14, 2012:

Christin, my hat's off to you for doing such a wonderful job of condensing the 12 laws into a hub. Despite the fact that I spent 7 years in a metaphysical school and have studied for 37 years, I wouldn't have thought it could be done! I love your answer to Heather, and my heart goes out to her. I also have enjoyed the comments from your enlightened readers.

Sinbad, these 12 laws have been around longer than the bible. The bible is based on them, and so are Jesus' teachings. Remember, a wheel has many spokes, and an ant can travel any of them to get to the hub.

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on May 14, 2012:

Cormac, thank you for the lovely comment - truly. So glad you found this hub and that you enjoyed it.

Namaste to you as well friend


Cormac on May 14, 2012:

Hey Christin.

Beautifully written article indeed! I was inadvertently aware of some of the other laws by complete accident. Lol. I never knew any other titles of any of the other laws, only the law of attraction. But through your talented, flowing writing skills, many have been enlightened :) thank you for sharing such beautiful and interesting information :) you are a tribute to the world :)



Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on April 29, 2012:

Thanks Mr Happy and Christo for the lovely comments and for enjoying the hub. I'm so happy you found your way here and took the time to comment - that's always appreciated. :) Christin

christollesseb from UK ME ASIA on April 28, 2012:

Oh what a joy to find this Hub! You have explained everything so simply that all can get a grasp of these awesome concepts. So well written and constructed. The whole thing flows so beautifully. I will certainly look forward to reading more of your wise words. Voted across & Up!



Mr. Happy from Toronto, Canada on April 28, 2012:

As Alice DeWonder said, "That's a fairly large nutshell; but interesting." Haha, I love Mrs. Alice's comments - always!

I only follow one Law and that is the Law of One: we are All One, All is connected.

I find this actually helps me in manifesting my personal power. We can be anywhere at anytime and we can manifest anything we wish as long as we do it with clarity in the mind and purity in the heart.

We are powerful beings, it's just that this three-dimensional perspective has many of us trapped and unable to see beyond.

I enjoyed your write and I see You. Cheers! : )

P.S. Many thanks to Born2care. I got here following his trail. All the best!

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on April 28, 2012:

Thank you Bruce for such a lovely comment. I'm glad you enjoyed the hub so much and are sharing it :) I look forward to reading more of your hubs as well. Thanks, Christin

Rev Bruce S Noll HMN from Asheville NC on April 27, 2012:

Hi ChristinS!

I don't know where to start. I suppose the best place is with the quality of your hub. In its content and context, in my opinion, it is flawless.

I enjoyed the writing style as well. It was easy to read and I am grateful for its simplicity.

Some will agree, some will not. Some will have one set of experiences, others a different set. The power in this hub, in my humble opinion, is in the first law. "The Law of Divine Oneness." We may not all have the same beliefs, and some may even dispute the following fact; we are all connected. There is simply to much indisputable evidence. Even then, an argument to the contrary will be made.

It is as much a part of our humanity as the power of choice. (The one human characteristic displayed in every individual on the face of this planet) We are connected even though we choose to separate ourselves from each other and thus from the source of all being.

I will bookmark this hub and respond with a hub entitled "Laws That Cannot Be Broken." In our beliefs we may deceive ourselves and each other, but the laws you have so eloquently stated cannot be subverted by an ego. They simply are!

There is a question the 12 laws present relative to our place in humanity and our desire to be as one. It is like that of a partner in marriage; "Do I want to be right, or married?

Voted up across the board and sharing!!!

Peace be with you & Namaste!

Rev. Bruce S. Noll

thank you Jrocks I am so glad you enjoyed the hub and very flattered that my article was the first one you read and that you are sticking around :) HubPages is a great community and I am sure you will like it here. Thanks!

Jrocks4u11 on March 14, 2012:

Christin S,

I am reading a hubpage article for the first time today. I really liked this article. I read most of the comments and I have to say that I am very impressed with your ability to stay above the negative comments. Those actions truly show what kind of person you really are. It is those kinds of actions that truly resonate with people. You "practice" what you preach. Continued success with your writing. You have a new follower.

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on February 20, 2012:

Thanks again everyone for the lovely comments. I am happy this hub has been enjoyed :).

markbennis on February 20, 2012:

This was a very interesting read and thanks for compiling it all together, voted up.

purpelypink from India on November 19, 2011:

Simply amazing, I never knew there are 12 laws.

AngelTrader from New Zealand on August 03, 2011:

Just wanted to say Christin what a lovely response you gave to Donnie. The amount of religious intolerance displayed on hub pages astounds me! Well to be honest the amount of intolerance to everything considered different or not the 'norm' is amazing. But I guess Hub pages is merely a reflection of society in general!

Why do people feel the need to push their opinions down other peoples throats? Live and let live. Life is an individual journey within our own version of reality. If it works for you brilliant but I don't see the point in trying to cajole or force someone to accept a different reality. There are lots of 'bullies' here on hub pages.

Christin don't be drawn in to their cycle of fear but always stay in your light.

@TK don't worry, you may be surprised at how close your spiritual family really are!

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on August 01, 2011:

@Daniel - thank you I appreciate your comments and I am glad you enjoyed the hub.

@TK I understand your struggles living in the heart of an area that is not always hospitable to different ideas. I do have a few close friends though and we share regularly and it does feel good to be around others who share similar thoughts/ideas. :) best wishes to you on your search.

TKs view from The Middle Path on July 31, 2011:

Hi Christin,

Went and checked out your blog. Damn. Just makes we more homesick for my spiritual family. Our views are so alike. Hopefully I can find more of our brothers and sisters in my region so I can get this level of interaction more often.

Have a creative day,

Daniel Peebles on July 31, 2011:

Hi Christin:

I find your article to be uplifting and inspiring and I voted it up the same. It was very clearly written. You have a good grasp of the universal laws. And I much appreciated how delightfully you responded to the dogma in the comments. Very well done.


Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on July 31, 2011:

Hi TK - yes it was just a clip from it someone posted on youtube - but it was the part that showed in detail the power of ten which I just found really beautiful and amazing to think about.

I get it on the frustration :) - totally. I know I shouldn't let certain things pull me in and yes it always does end up in a never-ending cycle.

I have certain family members that are much the same way. well-intentioned and passionate and they love to strike up conversations quite regularly that go against what we believe in, on purpose, so I've had to learn to disengage. I don't always do it very well admittedly but I'm working on it :)

TKs view from The Middle Path on July 31, 2011:

Thanks for posting the video Christin. It ended a bit abruptly at the 8:35 mark so I don't know if all of it loaded. I can imagine from what I saw how impressive it must've been in the Omnimax. Morgan Freeman does some wonderful educational videos. If you haven't seen any of his "Through the Wormhole," series I highly recommend it.

I understand your frustration, I suggest takeing a nice deep breath and letting it go. The last thing you need is to allow yourself to get dragged into a battle that can only be a repeating circle with no point of resolve.

I'm going to check out your blog.


Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on July 30, 2011:

Again Donnie

I respect your right to believe what you please - I didn't go seeking out your hubs to tell you why what I believe is right - you chose to do that. I am not offended - I will be truthful and say I find it annoying that people who are religious feel the need to start debates. I understand you do so from a place of love and that you have good intentions. I don't fault you for that.

What I have a hard time swallowing is the whole "respect" you claim to have for the beliefs stated here in one breath and then in the very next breath you once again state that your perception of the truth is the only right one ;) that I find a little irritating, but again I understand your intentions are noble and although I find your beliefs misguided and you find mine the same way I don't believe I have to be right at your expense - I believe that in a vast universe that we cannot comprehend - there can be more than one reality and that duality and separation are nothing but an illusion in the end.

In fact I blogged today about this very thing :)

Donald Beres Jr from Valparaiso, Indiana on July 30, 2011:

I stated what I believe nothing more nothing less. 1=1 1+1=2 2+1=3 3/3 = 1 "Time" never was and now it Is. And the time is coming when it shall never be again.

Even though there are many ways here to achieve different outcomes of sameness. This is not so with GOD and can not be so. To, about His source either you believe or you do not.

You can not make acceptations to the Father as a He, She, or IT when He States He Is I am that I am He means All that I am ALL at any given point in our Time and all at once. Not His for He Has no Time restrictions upon Him as we do.

And I can't share the same God or God source If we are not in the same Plain. Sorry you took offense to my comment. It may be you are the one. Who does not respect the beliefs of others or is it only my belief's that you do not respect? It is your opinion that my reality is my opinion.

And yes I am secure In my opinions as your are yours. For these are the only Ones we shall be Judged By. But that makes neither one of us right about the whole truth and nothing But the TRUTH! This day has not yet come, but is on its way be it today, tomorrow, or one billion years from now. All things Will Change this is a standing order and not a Law.

Donnie/ Sinbad the Sailor Man

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on July 30, 2011:

Donnie, I respect your opinion - you obviously don't respect the beliefs of others and that's fine too - you are free to be who you are.

I approved this post because I believe it shows the very height of arrogance and ignorance that humanity needs to move away from.

Anyone who believes there is only ONE Truth is never the one to stand up and say theirs is the wrong one. I wonder why that is? So many people feel they have to be "right" at the expense of everyone else. That is smallness and fear based thought at work.

Those who are convinced the "end times are coming" have been around throughout history - and it's a great cop out to having to accept responsibility for humanity and the Earth NOW. That is one of my biggest peeves with religion - the belief that you die and go to some wonderful utopia as an everlasting reward... Where is the incentive to better yourself and to stretch your limits? Where is the personal accountability to be the best possible human being you can be?

You are entitled to your opinion Donnie - but if you are here seeking converts to small mindedness you are on the wrong hub.

I will believe in "one true path" when someone proclaims from on high that theirs is the wrong one - until then I'll call it nonsense... I don't need you to forewarn me of impending doom dearest - because it simply isn't going to happen and if it does it will be due solely to mankind's inability to grow up and think for himself - not because of a war between a diety and a devil.


Donald Beres Jr from Valparaiso, Indiana on July 30, 2011:

I Believe:

That many believe that there are endless paths, But I also Know this is wrong. For I know there are Three that bare witness in Heaven of the truth of all matter and all that matters. There is GOD's truth, Our source and there is Satan's truth, the Darkness and there is Man's truth, the gray area that are very brains are made of, the dust of the torn Heaven.

I know the laws very well and Have put them to work quite often. and found them to be lacking without the truth, that I deem to be the Truth.

You are where many of Us consider to be at the tipping point or at Zero Buoyancy you have come to the Man's Belief the Chosen path that Eve was seeking and which she and Adam then desired.

Neither Man's or Satan's truth are worth anything. For with out the Source of God there is no Truth or anything. Which Satan is seeking he wishes GOD to start Over and be alone once again. As He was in the Beginning.

We on the other hand stand between looking to the darkness and to the Force please forgive the star wars reference's but these similitudes are in every written work and every movie and every thing we know and see, but we are blinded by are Own Lust, Sin, Desires as well as by Satan's.

Again these are mine or my beliefs and many others, I set up no treasure here for this plain, but for the next. For I know GOD has Come to This Plain and did so As We Are in the Flesh. He Came to reveal this Light or this truth.

And I know GOD will not allow this Dualism to continue forever. And I believe It is coming to and end as we know it very soon today, tomorrow or in another million years it doesn't matter it will end when the source deems it so.

And So I know that when Jesus states He is the First and the Last or the Alpha and the Omega he is speaking to the truth of the matter. That was and is still being reveal here in our plain.

Before Jesus, there was only questions and doubt. While Jesus live there was questions and doubt. But when He die and was resurrected the Doubt and the questions were removed once and for always.

The truth is now out there! And Man and Satan are joined together to this Waring of the truth of the Source of GOD. Who is the Alpha and the Omega and None can find this Truth anywhere, but where it Lies!

It is no longer here in the flesh and Man and Satan both want it to be and stay hidden, to try and Claim their one third of GOD's Heaven.

There are many Humans seeking a union with Satan and there Shall be many, Many, Oh so many more join when the Anti-Christ is here incarnate as he is not just yet.

But if things are aloud to continue unchecked he will arrive soon I feel it in my very Soul. 1111 10 12 7 3 1 I haven't a clue so don't bother asking.

Enjoy your path and your beliefs and I shall mine also, but be fore warned there is only ONE path to the true source which many will soon be seeking. Meditation is very beneficial when seeking the truth of the GOD source, but is it not better to seek GOD Himself?

I still love this Hub it is a very enlightened HUB Thanks for the share and the communications and views, we are all so opinionated at times and at times we all wonder to what is and what is not.

Donnie/ Sinbad the Sailor Man

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on July 30, 2011:

Thanks TK - I added the clip from it and embedded it into the hub - Enjoy it :) it's astounding to think about!

TKs view from The Middle Path on July 30, 2011:

Thanks, I'll take a look at the link and if you do come across a link to the movie that would be great.

Have an awesome day!

Christin Sander (author) from Midwest on July 30, 2011:

TK - I totally agree! Everything in the universe is mathematically perfect! and we are just starting to wrap our heads around it. - I watched a movie several years ago actually (in an Omnimax theater to boot so it was overwhelmingly moving and beautiful) about the power of ten... how everything in the universe can be seen from a quark to the most vast expanses of what we can perceive - measured perfectly to the power of ten in either direction... amazing stuff - here is a link to the idea and I will see if I can find a link to that movie I watched - I recommend seeing it if you can rent it :)
