14 Spiritual Laws to Know and Use

If you think the Law of Attraction is all you need to know about the spiritual law, think again…

Using spiritual power to change your and others’ lives depends on knowing the Spirit (or being aligned with God/universal intelligence) and applying spiritual laws wisely. Much attention has been paid of late to the Law of Attraction due to huge amounts of publicity around “The Secret,” which started as a book, expanded to a DVD, and then became a movie. But other spiritual or universal laws can be studied and applied. The two sets of seven rules described in this article are probably the best known.

Seven universal laws are attributed to Hermes Trismegistos of ancient Greece. These seven Hermetic laws are well known and generally accepted by many as containing great truths. Other people believe this is all a bunch of new-age nonsense, but I think the reality is indeed there from my experience. The best treatment I’ve seen of the Hermetic laws is by Alan Seale in his book Soul Mission, Life Vision.

The Seven Universal or Hermetic laws are:

The Law of Mentalism — Also known as the Law of Mind or the Law of Spirit. The law has two aspects. The first aspect states that everything is mind or Spirit. Everything arises out of thought or universal consciousness. Thought creates. The second aspect is that everything exists within the mind of God, and the sense of God exists within everything. This is the core idea of many mystical traditions — that there is a great unity or oneness with God.


The Law of Correspondence — This is often stated as “As above, so below. As below, so above.” The microcosm level of the human being corresponds to the macrocosm level of the universe. The inner group of objects held in thought corresponds to reality’s outer level of things.

The Law of Vibration — Also called the Law of Resonance. This law says that everything is in motion. Matter, energy, thoughts… everything is vibration. This law has two subsidiary laws: the Law of Attraction and the Law of Change. The Law of Attraction says that like attracts like — i.e., similar vibrations attract or resonate, and dissimilar vibrations repel one another. For example, health thoughts can attract health; wealth thoughts can attract wealth. The Law of Change says that change is constant and to be expected as normal since everything is in motion.

The Law of Polarity — The subsidiary law is the Law of Relativity, which says that everything is relative and nothing exists alone. Everything is close to other things. The primary rule is that everything exists on a spectrum. What are often referred to as opposites are the ends of a range, but are there points throughout the divide between the poles or opposite ends?

The Law of Rhythm — This law says that all of life, even non-life (planets, moons, and stars), exists within an order or pattern or combinations of cycles and patterns.

The Law of Cause and Effect is often described as “As you sow, so shall you reap.” This law states that in interacting systems, actions or events cause or lead to resulting conditions. Cause precedes effect.

The Law of Gender is often referred to as “yin and yang” and has two parts. The first part says that masculine and feminine energies are within everything: male being strong, forceful, and assertive; feminine being contemplative, nurturing, and yielding. The second part is that things come in their own time, and there is a natural gestation period for things to develop and manifest.

Another famous seven laws are the Seven Spiritual Laws of Success from a book named Deepak Chopra. I have used these seven laws as contemplative meditation subjects for many years, so I am quite familiar with them. His seven laws are:

The Law of Pure Potentiality — Spirit is pure consciousness, and we humans are pure. Pure consciousness is pure potentiality — the field of all possibilities. The universe is creative and abundant.

The Law of Giving says that the universe operates through dynamic exchange. Energy and intelligence naturally flow. From the human point of view, giving and receiving are necessary to participate in this dynamic process.

The Law of Cause and Effect — Every action generates a force of energy that returns to us like kind. Giving love brings love to us in return. Giving money or value produces money or value that returns to us in style.

The Law of Least Effort — Effort can get in the way of natural participation in the universe. The natural effort- an effort that is true to one’s nature- is the “least” effort.

The Law of Intention and Desire — Inherent in every intention and desire is the mechanics for its fulfillment; intention and desire in the field of pure potentiality have infinite organizing power. Intention and desire can lead to action (cause), producing an effect. Intention and desire are also hts (reasons) whichthatcreate the intended result if focused (attention) in the present.

The Law of Detachment — Detachment is giving up the attachment to the result. It is free to step into the unknown, the field of all possibilities, and surrender to the universe’s creative intelligence. It allows the universe at the quantum level to respond and react. It will enable creation to happen most freely.

The Law of Purpose in Life — Everyone has a purpose based on a unique gift or special talent. When we use this amazing talent in others’ service, we experience the glory of our Spirit, accomplishing a divine goal and living a dream of the soul.

There are occasional references to other spiritual laws such as the Law of Love, the Law of Abundance, the Law of Growth, and the Law of Giving — and these may or may not map to the fourteen laws mentioned above. I think they do, but I will leave it to your reasoning (or imagination) to determine how.

The spiritual laws can be (and have been) studied and analyzed for what they mean to to us human beings and their potential consequences. They can and do have many different or subtle interpretations. But the key thing is that the laws have a spiritual meaning and practical usefulness in how they can benefit us — both spiritually and materially.

The key is learning how to use the spiritual laws effectively. The rules can be applied singly but can be used most effectively when taken together or in combination. True spiritual power is when a person knowingly and wisely applies spiritual laws to produce further insights, spiritual bliss, peace of mind, loving relationships, health, happiness, abundance, and true enjoyment of life.
