I remember a time when I would cry because of some changes in my life. I was one that if I got close to someone and they left my life (lost friendships) I would cry and miss them terribly It was not until I became awake that I realized that these thing have to happen, changes are expected in order to have balance in the world and in our lives.
What we think is bad, of losing a friend or companion, or moving to another state, town, country, even if it is not our desire, is really how it ought to be in our lives, for structure and balance.
I have always hated changes, I did not conform to change very well and still do not. It was a very hard lesson to learn as I grew up that nothing is constant, everything shifts, which is the Universal law of rhythm.
The Law of Rhythm
Everything vibrates and moves to certain rhythms. These rhythms establish seasons, cycles, stages of development, and patterns. Each cycle reflects the regularity of God’s Universe.
“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.”–The Kybalion.
The Law of Rhythm states that the energy in the universe is like a pendulum. Whenever something swings to the right, it must then swing to the left. Everything in existence is involved in a dance… swaying, flowing, swinging back and forth. Everything is either growing or dying.
This law can even be seen in the cycles of economies, there is a high period then a low period. Our seasons, you can see that the seasons are in a continuous flow of summer to winter. Everything goes through cycles, yet everything has a rhythm or a pattern. What seems to be random is actually very orderly. The law of rhythm also governs our economy, health, relationships, and spirituality. Let’s say that you’re at peak potential with your health and fitness. If you realize you’re at the peak, then you can foresee your health and fitness dropping some. However, instead of viewing this “drop in health” as something being wrong with you, you now view it as a sign to rest your body. Then, by law, you have to grow to a better and higher state of potential.
Masters know how to rise above negative parts of a cycle by never getting to excited or allowing negative things to penetrate their consciousness, the key to success in mastering this law is in balance. Never allow your emotions to swing too far to the left or right.
Before my family migrated for America from Jamaica, I was sad and upset that we had to leave. I loved Jamaica, and never thought I would leave the land of my birth. It was years after, during a medium session with my mentor Padrino, I was told by a spirit that I had to leave Jamaica in order to know my path and to be who I was meant to be, staying in Jamaica would not be possible for the route my life would take in later years. I remembered crying as we left the island, not knowing where I was going or what would befall us.
Again when my mother told me to leave her house, I was saddened by the fact that I had to go as a teenage mom. I was being pushed out to face the world on my own, the thought was dreadful, but although I had many rough patches, clawing my way through life, I now realize and understand why she had to do what she did to me, and I thank her for the heart it took for her to send out a young child on her own to face the world, though it hurt a lot at the time, fear and sadness dancing in my mind, I took the step and it worked out for me in the end.
For years I use to tell my children and people around me that soon I would be doing a lot of travelling, I had no idea of where I would be going, no plans for what I would be doing or to where and whom I would be going to. This is after my awakening, and I had realize that this law of Rhythm existed along with many other laws in the Universe. I knew that I would not be sitting in my house day in and out, I would be flying from here to there doing my work as a spiritualist/traditionalist and a meta physician, this thought was with me steadfastly, it was not a wish or a dream to me, but a reality.
The time came when I met a very influential person through my work, I divined for the person and they saw all the revelation told to them by me the oracle. This person was a world traveler because of the nature of their business and wanted to introduce me to the world, they began to take me along on their many trips, by this time I had gotten use to change and realized that it was needed for the world to continue and for our physical and spiritual growth, yet while jet setting around with my new friend/client I still knew deep down that this wasn’t it.
I was meeting people others would be impressed with, not I however, as I view everyone’s lives as celebrated, some may be highlighted more than others, but we are all stars in some form or the other throughout our lives, a celebrity status with all the fandangles does not impress me. To be honest, I am awed by the little old man or woman up on a hill in Africa or anywhere who has wisdom and knowledge abound, of Nature, Oracle, the ancestors and all of the Universe, I would sit at their feet without food in the scorching sun, all day everyday.
The time came later for me to travel and explore more of the world, gaining more spiritual knowledge and meeting people as I mentioned above. This is what I reflect on some time and wonder if I had not let go of the wicked baby father, or if I had struggled to stay in some situations which was not conducive to me or my spirit, how could I get to where I am now. It made me understand change and why it has to be. The Law of Rhythm. There are so many universal Laws, not taught in church or by our parents to us, or even in school, but they have great influence over our lives, if we only know and understand them.
People go in and out of our lives all the time, let them go (not talking about death, but a renewal of friendship or companionship), new people will bring a renewed energy which is needed for not only their growth but also your own.
Never get too emotionally tied up with anyone, this is a hard lesson for me as I am loving and am quick to get close to people and when they disappoint me it hurts. Love everyone, but know that they may not be there for you always, (everyone has their own path to travel), if you are able to understand this, then the change, when it comes is easier to deal with.
I LOVE YOU ALL
Here are the 12 immutable Universal Laws
The Law of Oneness
Everything is connected to everything else. What we think, say, do and believe will have a corresponding effect on others and the world around us.
All of humanity and God are one. We are always connected to force of God because the energy of God is everywhere at once, and permeates through all things living or material, as well as the the knowledge of God is infinite and always available to us. Each soul is part of God’s energy.
Everything that exists seen and unseen are connected to each other, inseparable from each other to a field of divine oneness. Divine all knowing, the matrix, pure consciousness or universal mind energy, sometimes also known as Life Force or God. Everything is one.
Increasing awareness of this law will increase our awareness of God and awareness of being connected to everything. It is important for us as a human race to start realizing and understand this law. As we do, we will realize that what we think of each other should only for good. As we think of the good in others, they will in turn think of the good in you. It is essential that the thoughts, feeling and actions be for good, for we “reap what we sow”.
As you gain a fuller understanding of the laws, you will see how they are all related and overlap each other and govern the world we live in.
Everything consists of, and exists as energy. Your subatomic particles aren’t fixed, in fact, particles may be flowing into and out of you now from: this page, the sky, the floor, your best friend and your worst enemy. In other words, there is no separation. How would you behave if you really knew that you were not separate from life, your friends, colleagues and every being that has ever existed? The answer is this – probably differently.
Law of Vibration
States that anything that exists in our universe, whether seen or unseen, broken down into and analyzed in it’s purest and most basic form, consists of pure energy or light which resonates and exists as a vibratory frequency or pattern. All matter, thoughts and feelings has its own vibrational frequency. The thoughts, feelings and actions we choose also have their own particular rates of vibration. These vibrations will set up resonance with whatever possesses identical frequency. In other words, your thoughts are inseparably connected to the rest of the universe. “Like attracts like”. As you choose good thoughts, more good thoughts of alike nature will follow and you will also be in vibrational harmony with others with like thoughts.
Science reveals that everything in the manifest universe is ultimately composed of packets of energy; quantized units vibrating at specific frequencies. Quantum physicists has shown that, although matter may appear to be solid, when you look at it through a high-powered microscope so that it is broken down into its smallest components: molecules, atoms, neutrons, electrons and quanta (the smallest particles measurable), it is ultimately mostly empty space interspersed with energy. So, in essence everything is comprised of energy and empty space. Everything that appears solid is the frequency of the vibration of the energy that makes it up. An interesting fact about this is that the denser the object, the higher the speed of vibration. At the same time, the lower the density of an object is, the lower the speed of vibration.
For us, thought is where it all begins. As your conscious mind dwells habitually on thoughts of a certain quality, these become firmly imbedded within the subconscious mind. They become the dominant vibration. This dominant vibration sets up a resonance with other similar vibrations and draws them into your life. This is easier to understand if you consider that from the metaphysical view, the whole universe IS MIND. In turn, your vibrations affect everything around you – your environment, the people and animals around you, the inanimate objects, even the seemingly ‘empty’ space and they, in turn, affect you.
Your feeling at the present moment dictates your vibration. It is said that feeling is a word to define conscious awareness of vibration. So, your feeling at the moment is your vibration you are in which sets up things of like nature. Positive feelings = positive circumstance, negative feelings = negative circumstances.
Law of Action
The Law of Action must be employed in order for us to manifest things on earth. We must engage in actions that supports our thoughts dreams, emotions and words. The Law of action states that you must do the things and perform the actions necessary to achieve what you are setting out to do. Unless you take actions that are in harmony with your thoughts and dreams and proceed in an orderly fasion towards what you want to accomplish, there will be absolutely no foreseeable results. It is here with the law of action that most people falter when pursuing success. It could be their fears or laziness that get in the way.You can also relate this law to that of the law of cause and effect. The cause is your action, as you take the action there will be a corresponding effect, that of which you may know or only the Universe will know the effect, but there will be an effect. Only by taking actions which correspond with our free will desires will the universe know what to bring into your life. If you wish to learned, then take the action steps to learn – read books, study, etc.. only then will the universe know what you are striving for.
When you take action, from the smallest thing from writing a To-Do list in the morning, you set into motion corresponding effects that change your immediate future, and if you follow up day after day it can become a habit way of living and the results will be exponential. But if you fail, to take that first action, then there wont be much in your future for results.
This Universal Law states that the principles or laws of physics that explain the physical world energy, Light, vibration, and motion have their corresponding principles in the etheric or universe “As above, so below” “As within, so without” or “Whatever is above is like that which is below, and whatever is below is like that which is above”Your outer life is a reflection of your inner life. There is a direct correspondence between the way you think and feel on the inside and the way you act and experience on the outside.
Your relationships, health, wealth and position are mirror images of your inner world.
Nothing happens by chance or outside the Universal Laws. Every Action has a reaction or consequence “We reap what we sow”. Ralph Waldo Emerson said the Law of Cause and Effect is the “law of laws”. The most important lesson involving human conduct and interation is seen in the Cosmic Law of Cause and Effect. “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction”. Every human thought, word and deed is a Cause that sets off a wave of energy throughout the universe which in turn creates the effect whether desirable or undesirable. The law states the effect must to physical manifestation. This is why good thoughts, words, emotions, and deeds are essential for a better world for the all create good effects.With every thought of intention, action and emotion that is transmitted from you, a person sets into motion unseen chain of effects which vibrate from the mental plane thought the entire cellular structure of body out into the environment and finally into the Cosmos. Eventually the vibratory energy returns to the original source upon the swing of the pendulum.
The law of cause and effect states that every cause has an effect and every effect becomes the cause of something else. This law suggests that the universe is always in motion and progressed from a chain of events.
If you want to look at this law from a philosophical point of view, every cause and effect had its worldly purpose to what we are experiencing today.
According to the nature of your actions, the Divine omniscient consciousness will assign corresponding effects. In order to benefit yourself and society as a whole, mankind should use their free will of choice and perform good deeds with the awareness that what they think, act and speak about will effect the entire universe. The prosperity of life is created by our own deeds in helping others through thoughts and actions. The motion or action will give appropriate result, according to the divine justice.
Example of this law in effect is shown in the following example, one I hope everyone can understand and apply to their life appropriately as they see fit: Whenever the food, rest, work, sexual activities and use of thought-force are over-indulged or improperly used, we find that the related organs are adversely affected. A simple example such as this can make the people understand the law of cause and effect.
