Words Have Deeper Meaning Than You Think

Words! They are the most powerful tool in our grasp, having the ability to connect us or pull us apart at the same time. Words have been created and recreated over again throughout the centuries all over the world, in all kinds of languages and dialects. Words represent us as people, as cultures, and give us a profound way to communicate what is going on within our minds and souls. But what if I told you that words are even bigger than all this? That the meaning behind our spoken word is deeper than you could have ever imagined?

Energy flows through words as it does our bodies, spirits, and the rest of the universe. Each word we speak or write resonates at different frequencies. Even in an age where we communicate mainly electronically through texting, emails, or social media, the feeling behind our words can still be sensed on the receiving end. You’ve heard the timeless advice to never respond to someone when you are angry, and this especially holds true when you realize the strength of the energy behind your words.

This strength goes farther than we could have ever imagined, especially with new studies that show that DNA can be reprogrammed by words and frequencies. Russian scientists are still working on a theory of conclusions found that there is a genetic code within our DNA that parallels the very roots of language. All semantics of language—from dialect to the actual diagraming and breakdown of a sentence in any world language—are practically identical to the set rules that our DNA follows. This is a huge breakthrough as now we know that the language of a human being has never been coincidental, but instead is something biologically written within us from the day we are born. Essentially this means that when we communicate, is it our DNA that is being verbalized. So, in turn, we are able to reverse this order of events and use words to change our DNA patterns. By using the right type of frequency and vibrations merged with our phrases, we can influence and morph cellular metabolism. What does this mean to non-scientists? It finally makes sense why things like hypnosis have such a big effect on human beings. It explains what intuition really is. Can you just imagine how much we could tap into within ourselves if we could block the negative vibrations brought on us from negative words? Our gifts could be limitless.

Just the ideal of this discovery has major implications on how we live our lives, how we see ourselves, how we interact with others, and how we lead. The persuasion and influence behind DNA syntax is much like the Neuro-linguistic Programming technique. NLP is a dynamic approach to how we communicate with our words. Founded in the 1970’s, NLP is based upon the belief that there is a strong connection between language, experience, and brain processes, and that this connection can be altered to obtain ultimate prosperity in our lives. With a single word, we can change our perception of the world around us, which in turn changes our reality. With this mindset, there are no limits to our empowerment. NLP consists of 4 basic fundamentals:

1. Rapport: This is the methodology of how you nourish and build a relationship with yourself and with others around you. It is what will change the way you look at the world and the way that you exist in it.
2. Sensory Awareness: This comes about when you begin to understand the vibration and energy behind words and embrace the concept of “perception is reality”. When you tap into all your senses, your perception and how you literally sense the world around you is infinitely changed, and this brings about an awareness that is truly transforming.
3. Outcome Mindset: When you set expectations and beliefs about what outcomes will be in your life, you can literally begin to see those outcomes before they happen. This mindset puts words and phrases out into the universe with positive energy, which in turn causes a magnetic shift of outcomes you wish for towards you.
4. Behavior Flexibility: This is another level of clarity awareness that comes when you readily change behaviors that just aren’t working for you in your life.

Knowing these four basic building blocks that make up the pseudoscience of NLP can better help you to understand just how powerful a single word can be. Verbiage such as “aware”, “beyond”, “freely”, and “discover” are examples of NLP using specific words to elicit powerful responses that trigger emotions and send out real energy into the world. These emotions paired with this energy evoke action to create a life that is full of a deeper meaning, substantial gifts, and a fruitful existence as not only a human being, but more specifically as a successful entrepreneur. Isn’t it amazing that just one word can make all the difference in our lives? This also carries over into the power we have as leaders within our business, and how understanding the impact behind a single word can be a tool you use to build your brand and your relationships with customers. In the NLP spectrum, this is more specifically known as embedding commands.

Embedding commands is the center of what NLP can be used for in regards to business. As an apt entrepreneur, you’ll want to be expert at persuasion techniques and having a real effect on your staff and your customers. Becoming valuable to people that work for you and people that invest in you is crucial to your livelihood and long term business goals. Let’s take a look at a list of amazing language-based strategies that work both for the spoken word and for the written one.

1. Know the Energy and Use It: Every single person is different in many, many ways, and you absolutely have to know exactly what type of energy lies within the person you are persuading before you delve right in. For instance, a statement that commends a mother and touches her deep down will not work for a young boy. Pointing out the high skillset of a manager versus a line level staff employee likewise uses completely different words. This strategy can be applied in one-on-one conversation or in an email. Either way, you have to cater to the specific individual in order to steer him or her in the objective direction you wish for.

2. Find the Emotional Button: Gear your words towards an emotional value within the person you’re communicating to. What positive words that resonate with your audience will jump off the page and grab hold of someone? Depending on what exactly you are trying to accomplish, a singular word such as “significant” or “love” can gain the attention and reaction you want from the person reading it.

3. Be Inquisitive: As a basic rule of social engagement, nothing peaks a person’s interest more than when you ask questions pertaining to them. Showing real focus on someone will instantly make them feel as though they are important, and therefore they want to become involved with what you are doing. Inserting the word “you” is the ultimate way to portray authentic interest in whom you are speaking with. Sometimes, making someone feel special is all it takes.

4. Be Enthusiastic: Nothing is more motivating than getting excited about your passions when you are trying to persuade others to invest in those passions. When you’re jubilant about what you’re trying to accomplish, this comes across in phrases that contain the word “benefit”. When the people around you realize that out of your excitement comes real advantages for them as well, they begin to lean towards you. Shine the light on how your ideas or passions can make their lives better.

5. Flip the Coin: On the other side of the spectrum of being excited and jovial, you’ll want to also showcase just what negative effects can come on if your audience doesn’t see things your way. Just as there are magnificent words full of positive energy, there are also words you’ll use that pack a negative (but albeit productive) punch. If someone is hesitant or reluctant to get on board with the ideas you are trying to persuade, you have to target their emotions so that they have a clear view of what they would be missing. Great words for this are “losing”, “last”, or “is not”.

6. Steer Clear of Yes or No Questions: When you can limit someone’s options, you create a tunnel leading people to where you’d like for them to go. When the only choices for an answer are Yes, No, or I don’t know, you come to a permanent halt in the conversation. For instance, instead of asking someone if they would like a sandwich, you would ask them “Would you like a turkey or ham sandwich?” This completely changes the entire direction of the conversation and by limiting the choices, the person is automatically required to make a decision (which will most likely swing in the direction you wish for).

7. Stay Away from Conjunctions: “And” is the only connection word you should be using in any sentence to someone you are trying to persuade. All other conjunctions like “but”, “however”, and “nor” hold inexplicitly terrible connotations for those reading or listening. A negative feeling is produced when you use these words, as they make someone feel trapped by limits. In fact, these words can be so powerful that someone will stop paying attention altogether once the word is uttered. People want possibilities, so give them lots of “ands”!

8. Be A Storyteller: One word can have a huge impact on someone, but so can a bunch of words and language creatively strung together. Since the beginning of time, people have been in love with stories and the art of good storytelling. Tell the person a story that their identity can relate to, that focuses on the “plot” of you coming to the point in which you want them to come to now. You’ll be amazed at what positive tale can really do as a persuasion technique.

9. Use the Ultimate Gateway Word: Because. That’s right. This is the ultimate gateway word because it gives people a feeling of trust and compassion towards what you are saying. Here’s a great example: You ask someone if you can use their personal printer. They might agree, but chances are just as high that they won’t, or they won’t be so happy about sharing their expensive ink, paper, and time. Add the word because and see what happens. Ask someone if you can use their personal printer because you have to print your airplane boarding pass for your flight. Chances skyrocket up that not only will they agree, but they will also have a sense of positive connection with you. By adding the word “because”, you just became relatable and trusted because you had the courtesy to give someone a reason at all. That adds something else to the plate that any and every one on this earth is drawn to: humbleness.

10. Point Out the Action: This is an awesome persuasion technique that is definitely subliminal in its own rite. To do this, you announce to the person you are communicating to what they have done that has led them up to this point. For example, we will use an employee scenario. Let’s say you’re speaking with someone on your staff who you’d like to promote. To use this method of persuasion, you would say, “Your quality of work has been incredible over the last six months. You have expressed interest on several occasions of wanting to further your career, which tells me you are definitely ready to take on more responsibility with our company.” By walking through the motions that this person has gone through to arrive at this point, you open the door for them to walk right through to where you want them to be.

11. But Above All Else… don’t lose grasp on your integrity. You may be using your higher knowledge of persuasion, but you should be doing so as your authentic self with no ill intent. Understanding the power of words in the universe isn’t about conning other human beings. It’s about transforming their lives as you have done to your own. Be honest and be forthright in your actions.

How to Reprogram Your Mind to Get What You Want

The Power of the Mind
The most powerful tool mankind has ever developed is one we’re born with. While no doubt the first thing that comes to the mind of many is our hands, or even more specifically our opposable thumbs, these are tools that are useless to us without the one that sets us apart from every other creature on the planet. That tool is the MIND. Within the mind lay the foundation of every amazing achievement ever reached by our species in its time on this world. Whether we’re discussing the discovery of fire that truly set society and technology in motion, the study of the passing of the seasons and the area of agriculture that helped found civilization, or the great technological marvels that have let us see into the vastness of the Universe, and the microscopic hidden secrets of cells, all of this is due to the amazing versatility of the human mind.

What Lies Within
From the moment we are born, it is within this amazing organ that all of your potential is housed, and common spiritual wisdom says that your pituitary gland is the “seat of your soul”. Long before the existence of this gland was known, the powerful white light of the Sahasrara, the Crown Chakra represented by the thousand petaled lotus, was said to be located here. This was believed to be the “source of all wisdom”, and is the point at which the soul leaves the body when we pass from this Earth.

What we can take from this is that the power of the human mind has been recognized as the driving force behind everything that makes us exceptional. In recent years there has been a growing and intensive interest in just what kind of strengths truly lie within (our know your life purpose), and what power the human mind has to envision and make manifest our desires, hopes, and dreams (live by the Universal Laws).

The Levels of the Mind
Frequently we hear people talk about the conscious and subconscious (or unconscious) minds, and how much of what we actually think and feel is often hidden within the murky waters therein. It’s well known that what we consciously bring into our lives in both thought and deed can have a profound effect on our ability to heal, our happiness, and even our success in our lives (as per the Law of Attraction). Less commonly spoken of is the superconscious mind, an aspect which we will talk about after having clarified the power held within the other two levels.

The Three Minds
3minds

Conscious – The active analytical portion of our mind, our active awareness
Sub-Conscious – The home of instinct and storehouse of experience
Super-Conscious – Our Greater Awareness

Our Conscious Mind at Work
This is the part of our mind that, with the material brain, takes in and analyzes the data we receive through our ears, eyes, nose, mouth, and touch, and that which facilitates all physical movement and activity. It is here that our understanding and beliefs about the world are formed, and it is here alone that we have the power to shake our rigid paradigm and turn it around. From there it can be fed down into the subconscious to help fundamentally alter how we view the world.

As we mature and learn, the conscious mind not only helps us stay on the straight and narrow, but actively helps us determine what our manifestation of the straight and narrow is. No two people have the same perception of the same event, nor do they share the exact same moral standards or beliefs about what is truly, fundamentally, right or wrong. This is due to their individual experiences and ability to analyze and draw their own conclusions from the experiences before them.

This is what makes the conscious mind such a powerful tool in learning to become aware of our thoughts. Here is where we decide actively what kind of person we want to be, what is important to us, what our values are, and establish our belief about whether or not we can achieve those things. If you consciously decide that you are incapable of achieving something, your mind will feed this down into your subconscious, and from there it will manifest into your reality (as per the Law of Attraction). Thankfully we have control over this spiritual muscle, and can help prevent thoughts and beliefs like these from ever penetrating into our subconscious.

Our Sub-Conscious Mind
Let it first be said that there is a separation between the physical brain, and the spiritual mind, and the brain is merely the vehicle which the spiritual mind acts through. The subconscious mind is the storehouse of all of our lives experiences, and it is from this place that all new experiences are interpreted. The danger inherent to letting the subconscious mind run unabated, is that what it interprets a new situation as is not necessarily what is actually true. Many people have their lives deeply affected, and potentially positive experiences turned sour, by previous experiences and instinct overpowering their sense or knowledge of what is truly going on in the present.

On far more than a psychological level, the subconscious perception of reality can in fact become manifested reality. Our subconscious mind, unlike our conscious mind, never truly rests. Instead it works day in and day out, absorbing and processing information and creating energies that are sent out into the Universe to affect our lives in ways both subtle and direct. When you consider the things we dwell on in our subconscious, the kinds of old patterns and tapes that can get stuck on a replaying loop and manifest into reality, you can see how learning to control this powerful aspect of our mind is vital to a truly happy life.

To help take control of our subconscious mind, it is important to learn and control what kind of information comes into your life, and allow only that that will enhance and drive your life forward to what you hope to achieve come in. If what you’re experiencing in your life right now does not fit what you hoped your life would be, it’s time to start bringing in new information to your subconscious, and start altering your reality from it’s very basis.

The Super-Conscious, Our Greater Awareness
So we’ve discussed the active conscious mind with it’s analytical nature and ability to shape the foundations of our sub-conscious, and the sub-conscious mind that can take the energies of our beliefs about ourselves, others, and the world and bring them into reality, so what’s left? What is the Super-Conscious?

The Super-Conscious is a limitless part of our nature, that part which is capable of bringing anything into existence, and puts us into touch with the universe of the whole. Our priests would tell you that the super-consciousness is God, or Buddha, or simply our ‘higher power’, while Science would call it the ‘Unified Field’. What is truly within the super-conscious is our infinite capacity to achieve anything, the absolute realms of possibility all combined. It is everywhere, in everything, and stretches out into the infinite reaches of space, time, and beyond.

It is important to understand that the nature of the super-consciousness means that it contains the potential for absolutely anything we can imagine, regardless of what conventional reality tells us is so. Every conceivable state of being, from the deepest despair to the greatest spiritual exaltation is held within this vast and limitless area of our mind. What you choose to experience within this area is entirely up to you.

What a tragedy then that so few people truly understand how to utilize and turn this aspect of their consciousness to living the lives they believe they deserve? While many of us dream within this realm, fantasizing about the life we could have, so few of us take those dreams and push them forward into a cognizant reality. By learning to take this part of our mind actively in hand, we can take anything we dream of and craft it into a tangible reality.

The Three Working Together Unlocks Limitless Potential!

There is nothing more important than living a happy and fulfilled life, after all, that’s what we’re here for, isn’t it? There is nothing to be gained by going through our lives without achieving our full potential, to be everything we have dreamed of being. By learning to master these three spiritual levels of mind, you can have, be and do anything you set your minds to!

Harness the Power of Your Thoughts and Live by the Universal Laws

A Law is the term used for something that is usually either immutable or easily verifiable as true. Throughout the years, business owners, philosophers and just ordinary people discovered a variety of concepts that have taken on the title of ‘Laws.’ All of these, regardless of your profession can have an impact on your life by revealing ideas and actions you have been involved in. Acting on the positive aspects and avoiding the negative elements as much as possible will maybe not gain you riches, wealth and a dream life; but if you’re wandering through life wondering why things aren’t better, then reviewing these could help you redirect energy to better choices and subsequent better results.

1) The Law of One (also commonly referred to as the Law of Pure Potentiality): Also considered the first spiritual law because it involves the beginning of things. What we are and where we come from is something we often are ignorant of and when we consider the power and limitless options that our origin offers us is liberating. Too often our choices and desires are selfish and influenced by fear. By acknowledging our power, by reconnecting to it through meditation, spending time in nature, we can relearn what we are capable of.

2) The Law of Sufficiency & Infinite Abundance (also commonly referred to as the Law of Prosperity): In “Healing Letters,” Myrtle Fillmore said that “Prosperity is the result of complying with laws that are revealed by the Spirit of truth within. Those who are prosperous and successful are the people who have a rich consciousness. They open their minds to rich ideas, and then cash in on these ideas in an outer way.” Prosperity is often maligned as a sign of inequality. There are well known Jewish proverbs exhorting the practice of tithing and many very wealthy people have been significant tithers. They didn’t expect a return like an investment would, but believed that giving opens the way to receiving. Abundance and Prosperity are similar in that they involve great wealth, but the significant difference is the former aids your inner you; body, mind and spirit and the latter, frankly, affects your wallet/bank account. What do you have more of than you’re aware of? Which are you focusing on and perhaps causing imbalance to the other? “The Richest Man in Babylon” by George Clason is a timeless classic book and most of its message still holds true today. It teaches the values of saving, overcoming poor habits such as procrastination and being able to take advantage of opportunities.

3) The Law of Vibration: Life involves motion; we walk, we talk, we think, we feel. All of these actions create vibrations. Some are easy to detect, like earthquakes. Others require sophisticated devices like electron microscopes to see everything around us is moving. Objects that have different harmonics, frequencies/ vibrations, do not mix and can sometimes repel each other. What are you thinking about? That you can’t afford our rent, you can’t pay for the things you want; you are generating vibrations in your thoughts that are repelling positive results. If there is something you want to achieve, your thoughts and actions must be in synchronicity with that result.

4) The Law of Free Will (also commonly referred to as the Law of Choices or the Law of Responsibility & Accountability): In the Christian faith, Free Will could be considered the cause of the Fall of Humanity from Grace. Free Will was exercised in the Garden and things haven’t been better since. Free Will also empowers people facing decisions and consequences to remain true to their moral core. Interestingly, some have posited that this is more of a ‘Right’ than a Law. All living things have the right to choose and it should be respected. You can of course lose control of that right through your choices. The Apostle Paul said, “All things are permitted but not all things are good.” You have the freedom to eat junk food, and now have the accountability of exercising or buying bigger clothes. You have the freedom to drive as fast as you want. The accountability of paying fines or losing the ability to drive is the result of that choice.

5) The Law of Attraction (also commonly referred to as the Law of Manifestation or the Law of Intention): This is considered a connected law to the previously mentioned – the Law of Vibration. What do you want? Why do you want it? How do you want to feel when you get there? What are you willing to do to achieve it?

The Law of Attraction is the most powerful law in the Universe and is the science of attracting more of what we want, and less of what we don’t want. Our words, thoughts and feelings create our reality. By focusing on positive or negative thoughts, one can bring about positive or negative results. We can only ever omit one vibration at a time (being it positive or negative) and the Universe will pick up on it and send back a direct match without knowing whether it’s good or bad for us. Each day our brain produces 50,000-70,000 thoughts (about 50 thoughts per minute) of which 95% are the same as yesterday. So it is within our power to choose better thoughts and feelings if we want better results.

Here are a couple of quotes supporting the above:
“The essence of that which is like unto itself, is drawn.”
(-Abraham)

“What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: Our life is the creation of our mind.”
(-Buddha)

“Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become your character. And watch your character, for it becomes your destiny. What we think, we become.”
(-Margaret Thatcher)

“There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.”
(-Shakespeare)

“A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks he becomes.
Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.”

(-Gandhi)

6) The Law of Deliberate Creation: When you understand and follow the laws of Vibration and Attraction, you then realize that what you WANT is what you attract. When we are ignorant of, or ignore the Universal Laws, the results of our lives happen by default instead of choice. These three laws work closely together so when you realize what you want, you determine to get what you want and then act to get what you want, you are then deliberately acting with the intent of achieving a goal. This law can be explained as it follows – some people make things happen, some people watch things happen, and others wonder what happened. You must choose the actions and emotions that lead to your goal. When you know, and apply these laws in a conscious manner, you create your destiny and the goal you want to reach will happen.

The law of attraction is at work whether we are aware of it or not. So everything we focus on, we create. Whenever we are aware of our thoughts and consciously thinking of what we want, we create deliberately. Whenever we are not in alignment with what we want, we create by default. Creating deliberately requires discipline, focus and letting go of things, but choosing to live deliberately is very rewarding as you get to live the life you want to live.

Below I’ve listed a couple of quotes supporting the above:
“If you don’t build your dream, someone will hire you to help build theirs.”
(-Tony Gaskins)

“You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going, because you might not get there.”

(-Yogi Berra)

“When you’re living by default, you’re automatically reacting to life in habitual ways, many of which may be limiting you and your life. In contrast, living deliberately means making more conscious and constructive life choices. When you’re living deliberately, you’re living from a position of responsibility; you’re making choices with greater awareness. You’re taken yourself off autopilot, so you’re better prepared to align your actions with the results you want to achieve.”
(-Lauren Mackler)

7) The Law of Conscious Detachment (also commonly referred to as the Law of Allowing & Believing or the Law of Least Resistance): Detaching is knowing that all is well and trusting that everything will unfold as it meant to, whenever is meant to. Allowing and detaching means releasing our attachment to what we want to manifest and how it is to come about. Allowing and detaching also means letting others be who they are. Attaching ourselves to people or outcomes moves us into a space of lack, fear or doubt. And when we are stuck in the “What If” mode about what could happen if we don’t get the result expected, we’re attracting negativity and the problems that go with it. Let go of the attachment, don’t give up on the goal and continue the positive actions.

8) The Law of Action & Commitment: Today we pride ourselves on multitasking. How many things can we do at once? How many can we do well? At all? Organizational experts described people like this as “bouncers”; moving from one task to another, starting to clean one room then stopping to begin another task leaving a trail of unfinished jobs behind them. We must focus on the task at hand whether it be cleaning a room, developing a relationship, completing a job task or even reading a book. If you’re not committed to finishing a task, you are not being deliberate in creating your goal, you aren’t attracting the results you want. Action is equally important to completing a goal. A wall full of sticky notes about how you’re going to accomplish all these things, yet the only action is adding more sticky notes isn’t the action that’s helping you. Commit yourself to the goal and take whatever action is needed to support it.

9) The Law of Expectation: What are you expecting to happen in your life? Is it positive or negative? It’s particularly challenging because we can be thinking about something at a subconscious level and when something bad happens we go into “Eeyore” mode and proclaim, “Well, I should have seen that coming. I never had a chance anyway.” Believing and desiring the same thing can be hard. Least resistance connects with Conscious Detachment by accepting people and things as they occur. It doesn’t mean to give up because something might happen, it means when you’ve done what you can, accepting that elements like Free Will can affect the course of an action you didn’t plan on. You believe, you allow what happens to happen and trust that it will happen at the right time.

10) The Law of the Present Moment (also commonly referred to as the Law of Living in the Now): This law actually doesn’t have to do with a gentleman in a blue police box. It connects to the Law of Vibration by establishing time as a factor of universal synchronization. There is a time for all things and in our busy society where we have different time zones and people working different shifts – no wonder we’re confused and off kilter! In the movie “In Time”, time is a currency for payment of wages, purchase of goods and services and when you’re out of currency, the final bankruptcy is death. We must observe the ancient cycles and slow down when needed and work when needed and take our fingers off the fast forward button and appreciate life, which leads us to living in the now.

11) The Law of Gratitude: What are you grateful for? A fantastic job? Wonderful spouse? Big bank account? A family, food, running water? All these are simple things that we take for granted, but many would give everything for. A speaker from India who was living in the U.S. and was picking up his father at the airport was annoyed that he had a flat tire at the curb. His father smiled and admonished him to be grateful for having three working tires and a car when so many were without. A present trend on social media is a challenge to post three or more things that you’re grateful for that day. This helps with adopting a positive attitude and also using the Law of Attraction for bringing to you what you are desiring.

12) The Law of Polarity (also commonly referred to as the Law of Yin & Yang, the Law of Opposites, the Law of Contrasts or the Law of Duality): Duality is the definition of our corporeal and spiritual self. We are part of the energy that is the Universe and we will always continue in another form, in another place. The challenge is bringing these two opposites: matter and energy into the same purpose. Both are needed to reach a higher understanding and purpose because without the essence of what we are, there is just an unreasoning form. There are opposites in many shapes in nature and when we seek understanding on how they exist, how they co-exist, we look to the world around us and through meditation, we look within and see the one.

13) The Law of Cause & Effect (also commonly referred to as the Law of Sowing & Reaping): The Bible states, “That which you sow, you shall also reap.” Science gives us examples of action and reaction. The oft-used phrase, “Actions have consequences,” negative yet true. Throw a stone into a pond and you see ripples beyond the entry point. This connects to the Law of Karma for understanding the effect of our actions beyond the event itself, beyond this present life. Doing good things richly balance our life and show an example to others that can benefit them as well. There will always be mistakes, bad choices that can affect us, Free Will can show us that. Focusing on helping, not hurting, building and not destroying travels like those ripples throughout and touch others, and ourselves in another place and time.

14) The Law of Forgiveness: Forgiveness is a powerful tool we have for Karma, for Deliberate Creation and Gratitude, yet it can be the most difficult to use. Being wronged by others brings a myriad of responses ranging from anger to pain and forgiving someone for their actions has been holding them back for years, or even lifetimes. The process though is quite simple; “I forgive you.” You are finished. The act is done. Walk away, if need be. All that can be done on your part has been done and the person’s response, or lack of, is not required. Sincerity of course is key and if there is some action for reparations that you are capable of doing then this is Karma and Accountability.

15) The Law of Reflection: When you look into a mirror who do you see? Even if it’s a rippling lake or funhouse mirror, you see the core of who you are. When we do not take action to meet our physical needs, the mirror shows our enlarged frame. When we are in pain and believe all is well, the reflection will reveal that. Being cruel and hateful to others is reflected in the way they treat us and when we seek to help, to heal, when we remember Karma, Sowing and Reaping based on our Action, there is the positive image we will see as a result.

16) The Law of Cycle (also commonly referred to as the Law of Periodicity or the Law of Rhythm): Life moves in regular cycles, music operates in rhythms when in harmony. We breathe in, we breathe out. Even things like the stock market moves in cycles, people see rise and falls in prosperity and have good and bad days. All around us we see the truth of Cycles and we can have faith that downswings become good and prepare for the hard times that can follow prosperity. We run into trouble when we dwell on the negative and believe that is all there ever will be or that we are destined for only problems. There will be problems indeed, we learn from them, we are strengthened by them and we will move through them, in time.

17) The Law of Growth (also commonly referred to as the Law of Divine Order, the Law of Gestation, the Law of Evolution or the Law of Progress): Norman Vincent Peale said, “Every problem has in it the seeds of its own solution. If you don’t have any problems, you don’t have any seeds.” Growth and progress is a natural element of life, if something isn’t growing, it has no life, no potential. Growth is not always easy and can be painful. This is a challenge in Duality as the Life energy doesn’t experience the pain of growth that the physical does and is frustrated by it. Knowing what change can bring, preparing for and accepting it lets us progress and move on and when partnered with Karma, promise a better future. When a purpose is determined, you must be patient with the growth of that goal. If you don’t nurture it, fertilize it with good thoughts, actions and support, that goal will never mature or even develop beyond just a wishful hope. Accept the time required for full growth, prepare it carefully and in time, the birth of your dream will be real.

18) The Law of Soul Purpose (also commonly referred to as the Law of Dharma or the Law of Empowerment): The Law of Life Purpose states that we are profound creatures who have taken physical structure to satisfy a reason. Everybody has a reason for living — an extraordinary blessing or unique ability to provide for others, and for each interesting ability and representation of that ability, there are additionally one of a kind needs. When we mix this special ability with service to others, we experience the ecstasy and exultation of our spirit. This is the objective of all objectives.

There are three parts to the Law of Dharma, otherwise known the Law of Life Purpose.

The first part states that each of us is here to find our actual Self, to discover that we are profound creatures, or godliness in camouflage.

The second part of the Law of Dharma states that each of us has an interesting ability that we are here to express. Our ability is unique to the point that nobody else alive has that ability, or that interpretation of that ability. When we are communicating our special ability — or more than one ability as a rule — we are upbeat, and we forget that time exists.

The third part of the Law of Dharma says that we are here to serve our kindred people with our ability. By posing the question “In what capacity would I be able to help every one of those with whom I come into contact?” we join the representation of our interesting ability with administration to mankind, and make full utilization of the Law of Life Purpose.

Dharma is a moral law, considered by Hindus to be life’s foundation. It is our code of conduct that we craft based on observation of the Universal Laws and reflect in our actions. Dharma encompasses patience, honesty, reason, truthfulness, learning and self-control. How we engage with those around us and in turn are interacted with create happiness when Dharma is used positively.

19) The Law of Acceptance (also commonly referred to as the Law of Unconditional Love or the Law of Non-Judgment): Acceptance is realizing that things simply are. Knowing that there are Universal Laws that affect us, even though we may be unaware of or choose to ignore them. Non-Judgment is accepting others the way they are because of the Universal Laws effects on them. There are happy people in spite of their circumstances who obviously understand Rhythm and Cycles that is reflected around them. Others are bitter and lash out because they aren’t in Harmony with the Vibrations they seek or should follow. We allow these events to move around us and help when we can, forgive when we should and always accept that is their choice. Love is found in every faith and culture and showing that love is Karma that will ripple forward to another time for our growth.

20) The Law of Reincarnation & Karma: Karma is important for literally, the long term view of your existence. There are things that you may not finish or experience in this lifetime and if your actions are not dedicated to bettering others, you will not accumulate karma and move to a higher purpose. It is said that “we are the heir of all the ages” and are solely responsible for those inheritances. The Free Will that we use for gain or ill will reflect back on us. Reincarnation is considered in quite a number of philosophies and cultures that state the human soul reincarnates on Earth until moving on to a higher state of consciousness. Karma and Reincarnation are considered the ultimate justice rendering results of a good life or a wicked life to that individual who was never recognized – or caught for their deeds. It is also considered a better alternative to the Christian faith’s concepts of Heaven and Hell where a person is sentenced, or rewarded forever based on possibly a few actions committed on Earth whereas through Reincarnation, previous errors can be corrected through enlightenment.

21) The Law of Gender: The law of gender shows itself essentially in all things as masculine and feminine. It is really this law that administers accurately what we know as creation. The law of gender manifests in the animal kingdom as sex. This law decrees just about everything in nature is both equally male and female. Both of them are needed for life to really exist.

Gender is within almost everything; everything possesses its masculine and feminine principles. Everything together with everyone is composed of both masculine and feminine constituents. Among the outward expressions of feminine qualities are love, patience, intuition and gentleness and also of masculine qualities are energy, self-reliance, logic and intellect. Recognize that inside every female are placed all the inert characteristics of a male, furthermore inside every male the ones from a female. When you are aware of this fact you can then understand exactly what it means to be complete.
