We are Beings of energy and energy is governed by Universal Laws and Principles. These Laws are the spiritual/energetic framework of who and what we are. They govern ALL, creating the guidelines for our behaviour and ultimately how that behaviour effects our lives. These Laws hold a Truth that cannot be altered. They create the foundation for our lives within all faiths and beliefs.
It is a great advantage to understand the principles of energy to be able to see the bigger picture while working with the states of consciousness of your clients. Consciousness is what creates and structures the reality that we experience. The density of physical form that we embody is energy slowed down in vibration to exhibit a solid mass. All form is a projection of creative consciousness manifested as systems for us to navigate in this world from our nervous system to the electrical system to the transport system, as well as the financial, economic and political system which are all created from our belief systems. All of these systems of energy are ultimately governed by (although not always adhered to) The Universal Laws or Principles.
In the field of consciousness, we accept that this is an infinite realm of potential and possibilities. As is intended, this practice involves working with all aspects of thought formed energies that are not readily tangible or logical to the conscious limited mind. As a practitioner, it is extremely helpful to be intimate with the nature of energy to then be able to translate this to the client.
Law of Attraction All forms of matter and energy are attracted to that which is of a like vibration. Like attracts like. Whatever thought (energy) is focused on the most, is what will be most attracted in life. The Universe unconditionally supports who we are in every moment by ensuring that whatever we broadcast out into the universe through our thoughts, feelings, words, and actions, produce the equal vibration that is attracted back to us.
Law of Detachment In order to successfully attract something into our lives, we must be detached from its outcome. If attached, the resulting expectations create feelings of mistrust, doubt and fear of your desire being realized. Trust, acceptance and having faith are the dominant feelings to focus on.
Law of (Unconditional) Love The primary Law is the Law of Love. ALL exists within this Law and is created from it. In human terms, it is the complete and total acceptance of what IS and what IS NOT. Love is the harmonious flow of energy that is constantly flowing into and through us, whether we are aware of it or not. Love is our Essence of our Being, connecting and unifying ALL that IS. Love is allowing ourselves to be who and what we are, allowing all the same rights to everyone. Love is our Nature.
Law of Manifestation Everything created begins as a thought or an idea. Ideas and experiences are the energetic fuel that create our reality.
Law of One Everything is energy – everything is connected to everything else. We are all part of the infinite energy of the Universe (Source, God, Great Spirit, Creator) consciousness. The energy of our thoughts, words and actions then affect the collective unconsciousness of the Universe within and around us.
Law of Resonance Energies of the same vibrational frequency and quality are drawn to each other. “Like attracts like.”
Law of Relativity
The Law of Relativity states that nothing is good or bad until you relate it to something else until the mind assigns a ‘positive’ or ‘negative’ emotion to it. Everything “just is” in comparison to something else.
The Seven Hermetic Principles “The Principles of Truth are Seven: he who knows these, understandingly, possesses the Magic Key before whose touch all the doors of the Temple fly open.”
~ The Kybalion
Hermes Trismegistus as the Alchemist
The Kybalion – A study of the Hermetic Philosophy of Ancient Egypt and Greece.
The book was authored by three individuals calling themselves The Three Initiates.
The content of this book according to the authors, is believed to be the essence of the teaching of Hermes Trismegistus.
1. The Principle of Mentalism “THE ALL is MIND; The Universe is Mental”
2. The Principle of Correspondence “As above, so below; as below, so above.”
This Universal Principle states that the principles or laws of physics that explain the physical world (energy, light, vibration, and motion) have their corresponding principles in the universe. Our outer world is nothing more than a reflection of our inner world. What is happening on the internal individual level is also happening on a global level and visa-versa.
3. The Principle of Vibration “Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.”
The Principle of Vibration states that everything in the Universe moves, vibrates, is in motion in circular patterns. Vibration is in everything, from the tiniest molecule to the biggest rock, in physical and biological systems. Vibration is in matter (energy, light and sound) Every mental and/or emotional state of thoughts, feelings, desires, has its own has its own unique vibrational rate frequency.
4. The Principle of Polarity “Everything is Dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled.”
The Principle of Polarity states that everything is on a continuum and has an opposite. We can suppress and transform undesirable thoughts by concentrating on the opposite pole. It is the law of mental vibrations. It also states that two contrasting sets of qualities are actually just two aspects of the whole and not two separated and distinct things. Every set of opposites represents a unity consisting of a reunion and balancing of the opposing poles. Together they build the unity of the phenomenon itself.
5. The Principle of Rhythm “Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates.”
6. The Principle of Cause and Effect “Every cause has its effect; every effect has its cause; everything happens according to the law; chance is but a name for law not recognized; there are many planes of causation, but nothing escapes the law.” (also known as The Law of Karma)
Any action produces or returns a result or outcome in exact proportion to the act or cause, which initiated it. There is no such thing as chance as an uncaused happening. If we cannot see a cause for an event it does not mean there is none – it just means that the cause is obscure and not known. There is always continuity between what has happened in the past, what is happening now and what will happen in the future.
7. The Principle of Gender “Gender is in everything; everything has its masculine and feminine principles; gender manifests on all planes.”

Hermes Trismegistus (Greek for “thrice-great Hermes”) is the combination of the Greek god Hermes and the Egyptian god Thoth. In Hellenistic Egypt, the god Hermes was given as epithet the Greek name of Thoth. He has also been identified with Enoch. Both Thoth and Hermes were gods of writing and of magic in their respective cultures. Thus the Greek god of interpretive communication was combined with the Egyptian god of wisdom as a patron of astrology and alchemy.
The Kybalion was first published in December of 1908 and is now in the public domain.
