Universal Laws

Universal Laws

The universe is governed by many different universal laws such as the Law of Attraction, Law of Vibration, Law of Cause and Effect, Law of Forgiveness, Law of Abundance, Law of Relativity, Law of Polarity, Law of Perpetual Transmutation, Law of Rhythm, Law of Sacrifice and many more.

Universal force

There is a Universal Force, which is present in the whole universe and manifests itself through it. This Force is intelligent and it consciously manages the cosmos and maintains it in everlasting harmony with the help of universal laws.

These laws are constant, mathematically precise, balanced and graceful. They never err even once. 

The universal principles regulate with absolute precision all aspects of creation - all events, conditions and circumstances experienced by everyone personally or collectively.

These laws apply to everyone, irrespective of age, nationality, geographic location, gender, educational background, world view, social status and so on.

When you work WITH the laws your life will start to flow, but know this: they do not "punish" you for not being in harmony with them.

It´s not like breaking a man-made law like stealing and get a punishment by being sent to jail. The law of man can be broken, but no Law of Nature can be broken. Nature knows no violation of her Laws. 

What we, as humans refer to as suffering simply comes up when you we are not in harmony with the laws - when we´re not working with them.

But how many such UNIVERSAL laws are there?

Some claim there are 7 universal laws, others say there are 12 universal laws or 20 universal laws or even more.

Searching the internet and the literature will provide you with many different numbers as to how many laws are in existence. No-one really knows.
