The 33 Universal Principles for your Spiritual Awakening

The 33 Universal Principles for your Spiritual Awakening

Principles and laws apply regardless of whether you are aware of them or not. For instance, if you park your car in a prohibited parking place, you will be fined – whether or not you know it is a prohibited place.

Cosmic laws are no different; they have always influenced your life. So it is better to know them, respect them, and use them in your favor.

These Universal Principles apply to any tradition, culture, or faith. They are rooted in the fabric of the Universe.

1. Universal Principles: Law of Mentalism

It’s also known as the Principle of Oneness, which states that we are one. We are the sun, the moon, the earth, and all its inhabitants. 

“The Universe is Mental – Held in the Mind of the All.” 

The Kybalion

Everything is created in One Mind, the Mind of the Source Energy, which we are experiencing. And It is experiencing life through us.

2. The Principle of Subjectivity

Each one of us lives a unique and subjective reality, created by us, for us, in a contract that we signed before coming to earth. Each one of us is the god of our own reality, a god with small “g.” This means that we are the protagonist of the dream and the dream itself. This text you read now is a reflection of your consciousness, reminding you that you must wake up.

3. Principle of Vibration

Also known as Law of Energy: “Nothing is still, everything moves, everything vibrates.” At the fundamental level, everything is energy, and consequently, everything is in constant vibration. Nothing is solid; everything is vibrating, solidity only exist through the perspective of the observer.

4. Universal Principles: Law of Attraction

Also known as Law of Analogy or Principle of Harmony. Our reality is the reflection of our thoughts, words, feelings, and behavior. Through choice and action, our energy travels to higher dimensions that are later manifested in this dimension.

5. Principle of Cause and Effect

Nothing happens by chance, everything has a cause, and for all causes, there is an effect. All choices and actions have consequences that we personally will experience at some level. We reap what we sow.

6. Principle of Polarity

The opposites are identical in nature but different in degree. Hot and cold are different degrees of temperature, while faith and justice are different degrees of love. Everything is the same, and our differences are only extremes of the same One Thing.

7. Principle of Rhythm

Everything swings in a rhythmic flow. After the day comes night. After the winter comes summer. Life has a series of ups and downs. What goes up has to go down.

8. The Principle of Transmutation

The higher vibrations consume and modify the lower ones. Choosing faith and surrendering over fear generates growth. Everything exists and is created in mind, so individual transformation results in a change of experience.

9. Principle of Neutralization

We can neutralize our present experience by applying the Transmutation Principle. Challenges and obstacles are only inferior vibrational illusions and can be canceled by generating a higher vibration.

10. Principle of Surrender

Also known as the Law of Allowing: “What we resist persists.” Events are happening for our own growth, and when we resist them, we make things worse. Resistance is a fear that must be healed for our growth. By surrendering, we transform fear into faith.

11. Principle of Faith

As love is the only truth, fear is simply an illusion and can be transmuted through faith application and practice. Faith is unconditional love in action.

12. Principle of Manifestation

Every idea begins as a thought and becomes a reality through action. Thoughts are the seeds of manifestation and require action to sprout. So you can state that Behavior = Manifestation.

13. Principle of Belief

Also known as the Law of Expectation. Everything we fully believe in our subconscious mind influences our thoughts, words, feelings, and, ultimately, our behavior. Our behavior creates our reality, so when we change our beliefs, we change our reality.

14. Principle of Action

Or the Law of Behavior. Behavior is the driving force behind manifestation. Actions are energy in motion that generates emotions. Emotions are experienced in the heart center and emit a much stronger vibration than thoughts and words alone.

15. Principle of Gestation

Everything has its own time to manifest. There is a time of gestation for all manifestations. This is experienced as a “quantum delay” in manifestation.

16. Principle of Prosperity

This is the law of cause and effect applied to abundance-based on how much energy we put into a project or endeavor. The more love we put into our initiatives, the more abundance we will experience. It is also known as the Law of Divine Compensation.

17. Principle of Charity

This is the law of cause and effect applied to give to others. The more you give to your community and those around you, the more you receive in return.

18. Universal Principles: Law of Relativity

Or the Principle of Initiation. Each person will receive a series of challenges and initiations to strengthen their inner light and align it with their life’s purpose. To find your purpose, look at your past.

19. Principle of Gender

Everything has its male and female principles (Yin Yang). The All or God is expressed in various degrees of gender with aspects of each. Binary gender exists only as an archetype.

20. The Principle of Reflection

The traces you see in others are within you. The state you see the world is a reflection of your own internal state. You are everything and everyone experiencing itself as a reflection. The universe is your mirror.

21. Principle of Fellowship 

When we work with others towards a common goal, the energetic result is exponential. Communion becomes more than the sum of its parts.

22. The Principle of Infinite Evolution

Our soul or essence evolves from a state of fear into love through reincarnation. Death is an illusion. Our essence will continue to grow towards a state of perfection to infinity.

23. The Principle of Wisdom

By obtaining wisdom, we can neutralize cycles of cause and effect. Wisdom is the highest vibration that consumes and transmutes all lower vibrations.

24. Principle of Harmony

It is necessary to strive for a state of balance and harmony with the universe. The extremes are inharmonious by nature and disturb the balance of the Universe. This includes connection in the body through moderate diet and exercise.

25. Principle of Abundance

There is an abundance of all that is necessary and desired in the Universe. Because we live in our own subjective reality, there can be no limitations. Everything will be provided and can be achieved through the practice of faith.

26. The Principle of Discipline

When the discipline is applied to action, goals can be achieved quickly, and further evolution can occur. Discipline is the key to rapid growth and manifestation.

27. Principle of Alignment 

Our behavior is aligned with the reality we will experience. By aligning our behavior with the desired experience, we can manifest what we want.

28. Principle of Forgiveness

When we forgive others, we also forgive ourselves. Through forgiveness, we heal ourselves and approach a state of supreme love.

29. Principle of Flow

By practicing surrender and non-resistance, we access the divine flow of creation and experience ease in our manifestations.

30. Principle of Free Will

We have the free will to make any decision we choose. This is the greatest gift of God or the Universe. Because of this, we must never hinder the free will of others; doing so is preventing a gift from God.

31. The Principle of Grace

People who work for the common good will receive more than they deserve or have worked for. Grace is an exponential force that can neutralize cause and effect.

32. Principle of Healing

Each of us can heal through mental techniques. As we are an expression of the Wisdom of the Universe, we are by nature healers.

33. Principle of Animism

Everything in the universe has its own fundamental perspective of consciousness, including plants and animals.

The Universal Law

Everything in the Universe is love. Love is the only truth; everything else is an illusion. Therefore, love is the only law!
