1. The Law of Divine Oneness

Law of Divine Oneness | The 12 Spiritual Laws of The Universe

Everything in the world is connected to each in one way another. This law of the universe expresses the how every single being is part of one divine nature. Every thought, word and decision you make is bound to affect others on a scale that you might never have imagined.

Whilst we may see ourselves as separate individuals living our own life experiences, the awareness that we are all part of a vast interconnected cosmic ocean is empowering and enlightening at the same time.

In the stillness of your presence, you can feel your own formless and timeless reality as the unmanifested life that animates your physical form. You can then feel the same life deep within every other human and every other creature. You look beyond the veil of form and separation.

Eckhart Tolle

2. The Law of Vibration

Law of Vibration | The 12 Spiritual Laws of The Universe

To fully grasp this law of the universe you need to understand that the entire universe is made of particles of energy that is constantly vibrating. This applies to all living and non-living creatures, everything is vibrating a specific pace and it’s individual energy is defined by the speed at which its particles are vibrating. You may feel more positive and happy when your vibration is high, whilst the converse may also be true where you may feel sad and depressed in a low vibration state.

What this means is that we can alter certain outcomes in our lives by raising our vibration levels, such as our current mood, emotions and degree of motivation. This is a particularly powerful law and mastering it can help raise our vibration levels to enjoy better health, happiness quality of life.

3. Law of Correspondence

Law of Correspondence | The 12 Spiritual Laws of The Universe

Similar to the Law of Divine Oneness, the Law of Correspondence explains our the inter-connectivity of the universe through repeating patterns or cycles which explain the relationship between all forms of life. So too are we affected by the patterns within our lives and learning to understand these patterns and even altering them may lead us on track to a more rewarding and abundance filled life.

Understanding of life begins with the understanding of patterns

4. Law of Attraction

Law of Attraction | The 12 Spiritual Laws of The Universe

That which is like unto itself, is drawn. The Law of Attraction dictates that “like attracts like” and that everything which shows up in your experience is not a result of mere coincidence or luck, but rather because you have attracted its presence into your life. This law is especially important to understand because it comes with the realization that you are the sole creator of your own reality. Because the law responds to your thoughts which activate your vibration, you will manifest whatever you focus your mind upon.

Some people believe that merely thinking is enough to apply the law. Thinking is in fact the starting point of all achievement, however it is the burning thought which persists in the mind which inspires deliberate action that eventually creates the reality that we so desire. No fleeting thoughts or wishful desires has the ability to manifest itself, we must give life to the thoughts in our minds that we want to see being translated into its physical equivalent.

Thoughts become things. If you see it in your mind, you will hold it in your hands.

Bob Proctor

5. The Law of Inspired Action

Law of Inspired Action | The 12 Spiritual Laws of The Universe

This is very much linked to the Law of Attraction and in most cases, the one law that is missed out most of the time. Every wants to attain success quickly and to be able to have the power to “think” everything they want into reality at the snap of their fingers. But the Law of Inspired Action is the vehicle that will bring your manifestation to life. You apply the law of attraction to create powerful, dominating thoughts whilst at the same time applying the law of inspired action to bring you closer to your goal. Neither law can be absent of the other if we want to manifest any thought into life.

“Inspired action” sounds difficult, but it really doesn’t have to involve great effort or consume all of your time. It’s all about taking the little steps in the right direction to achieve your goals, and every little step counts. As long as you do something which brings you closer to your dream every day.

6. The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy

Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy | The 12 Spiritual Laws of The Universe

We know that energy neither be created or destroyed, it be only be changed from one form to another. In this way the universe is always in balance and yet there is also a constant movement in the energy patterns in every particle at the molecular level. Our energy profiles are determined by our vibration levels which explains the changes in our emotional states, moods and motivations at different points in life.

If we find ourselves in a period of low vibrational energy, understanding this law will allow us to realize that we can actually improve our current states by exposing ourselves to higher frequencies so that we can absorb more positive energy into our lives. This is why it so important to constantly surround yourself with things that allow you to get closer to your goals, because you are indirectly transmuting energy to all the things around you.

7. The Law of Cause and Effect

Law of Cause and Effect | The 12 Spiritual Laws of The Universe

This law is very similar to Einstein’s law of Third Law of Motion which states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Whilst Einstein’s Law of Motion covers physical applications, the Law of Cause and Effect extends to all spiritual aspects of the universe as well.

Not just your actions, but every thought, emotion or desire causes a movement in energy and thus has an effect on you that can bring about positive or negative outcomes. In some cases, the intangible factors may have a strong reaction on you than any physical stimulus. Be mindful of the thoughts that you send out to the Universe as they can have a powerful ripple effect on your life and those around you.

Through the law of cause and effect we choose our destiny. Moreover, we are our own prophets for we constantly project our future state by the seeds we plant in the present.

8. The Law of Compensation

Law of Compensation | The 12 Spiritual Laws of The Universe

The greatest verse use to express this law would be the phrase “you reap what you sow”. The Law of Compensation essentially dictates that you receive whatever you put into the Universe. This applies to your thoughts and actions.

The law doesn’t differentiate between good or evil, it operates more like a mathematical formula which calculates the compensation for whatever act you do and pays you back in kind. Think about it like a form of Karma in your life.

9. The Law of Relativity

Law of Relativity | The 12 Spiritual Laws of The Universe

Think about this fact, whenever we make a judgement about something we are always in comparison to something else – for instance an already established standard, or perhaps our own individual standards. The Law of Relativity basically explains that our judgments are always influenced through comparison with many subjective factors, there is never a truly unbiased judgement.

Understanding this law is empowering because it reminds us to suspend judgement on people and our own current circumstances because we understand that there is a multitude of perspectives on life. You may feel poor right now because you compare yourself to your rich neighbor but from the perspective of the country’s national population you may be considered very well to do.

This is also important when applying the law of attraction because switching perspectives is crucial to focusing on the right thoughts. If we constantly focus on “being poor” then guess what kind of thoughts and opportunities will we attract? Always make it a point to cultivate positive perspectives in whatever circumstance that you are in.

10. The Law of Polarity

Law of Polarity | The 12 Spiritual Laws of The Universe

This law explains that for every thing that exists there is an entirely opposite existence which also exists. You can’t understand what light is without also knowing what darkness is. The beauty lies in the choice of our decisions which defines the polar outcomes that we receive. Life is after all a spectrum and we exists at different ends of that spectrum in different points of our life. When we go through hard times, the reminder of this law will allow us to yearn for and appreciate the positive developments in our life.

I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more..
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.
I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting…
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good- bye.

11. The Law of Rhythm

Law of Rhythm | The 12 Spiritual Laws of The Universe

This law is also known as the law of perpetual motion because the world is constantly changing and revolves around cycles. Everything in the world moves in cycles. This rhythm of life is a natural process and applies to all areas of our life stages. As individuals we need to not only understand this law, but also know when to make the most of the opportunities presented in each of these natural cycles.

12. The Law of Gender

Law of Gender | The 12 Spiritual Laws of The Universe

Similar to the Law of Polarity, the Law of Gender refers to the manifestation of the divine masculinity and feminine within an individual. This duality needs to exist in balance in order for any person to feel at ease and healthy. This is not to be confused with biological gender.


These 12 Spiritual Laws of the Universe exist perpetually and work in tandem to govern existence as we know it. By understanding them and applying them into our lives, we gain deeper awareness into self-development and become more empowered to building out a life of abundance.
