Spiritual Law is as if there is one stick; a continuum. Even if things seem opposite, such as hot and cold and light and dark they are two ends to the same stick; different degrees of the same energy. Cold is the absence of a degree of heat. Dark is the absence of a degree of light. Everything is on this continuum. For every action there is a reaction. This is the Law of Cause and Effect, or as Ralph Waldo Emerson called it, the Law of Compensation. Our thinking and consciousness may change, but the Law is constant. It is principle.
The Law of Spirit is impersonal. We personalize the Law. It works the same for everyone. Water will refresh, or drown life. Gravity will bounce the ball when we drop it, or kill us if we jump out of an airplane without a parachute. If someone has a consciousness of mutually loving relationships or perfect health, they’ll draw to them experiences that support their beliefs—just as someone who has the consciousness of lack and limitation will draw effects that support their beliefs. This is not the universe choosing who will have and who will go without; it is the universe saying, “Yes” to all we choose. Even if our choices are not ones of joy, we are free to choose.
What is something you would like to create in your life? (Better health, order, increased loving relationships, more positive cash flow…)
- Take that idea and nurture it. As an example, if you want to create better health, look at what you’re putting into your body, your sleep patterns, what you do – or don’t do for your mind, body and soul. What are you saying about or to your body? Are you are willing to make one small change this week toward your goal?
- Envision the outcome of what you want to create. (It can be improved health, increased wealth, more loving relationships, a fantastic job—whatever.) What does the outcome look like? What does it feel like? In your mind, what are you hearing you and others say about your wonderful outcome? Where are you? What are you doing? Who is with you? Bring in all your senses as strongly as you can into the creation of your vision in mind. Come from a feeling glory and celebration – of really being in the moment where this creation is taking place. Not from a feeling of wishing, hoping, yearning for “one day” – because those are feelings of lack (I wish I had…) and your body will take on the feeling of lack instead of feeling of, Yippee!!! It’s like daydreaming with intention. Make it fun.
Are you washing your ten-year old car as if it is your new Jaguar? Or are you not washing it, and talking trash about it when you get into it?
