Universal Spiritual Laws
You've all no doubt heard about the 'Law of Attraction' by now (if you haven't, here tis) -
To understand the Law of Attraction, see yourself as a magnet attracting unto you the essence of that which you are thinking and feeling. And so, if you are feeling fat, you cannot attract thin. If you are feeling poor, you cannot attract prosperity. And so on. It defies Law. The more you come to understand the power of the Law of Attraction, the more interest you will have in deliberately directing your thoughts—for you get what you think about, whether you want it or not. Without exception, that which you give thought to is that which you begin to invite into your experience.”
The first Law of the Universe is ‘As above so below’.
‘Peace within leads to peace in your life’.
Your body is a mirror of your deep, often unconscious, inner feelings. This law applies to the physical body. Inner feelings are reflected in the way we build our bodies.
· If we feel emotionally or sexually vulnerable inside, we may develop a protective layer of fat over our abdomen and hips, as these are the places where we hold our emotions and sexuality.
· If at an inner level we feel un-loveable, we may build a big chest to protect our heart centre. ie. muscle/body builders with muscley chests are often hiding feelings of vulnerability. A woman will unconsciously build big breast to indicate her need to nurture or to be nurtured.
· If we feel deep inside that we must shoulder the responsibility for our family or even the world, we build ourselves big shoulders. If, on the other hand, we have no intention or desire to carry responsibility, we build sloping shoulders that allow burdens to slip off.
· If you have a pain in the neck, ask yourself, ‘Who or what am I allowing to be a pain in the neck?’ · A pain in the backside - ‘Who is the pain in the backside?’ · A pain in the heart - ‘Who am I allowing to hurt me?’ · Indigestion - ‘What experience can’t I assimilate or stomach.’ · An ache - ‘Who or what am I aching for?’ · Unable to hear clearly - ‘What don’t I want to hear’ or ‘Who don’t I want to listen to?’ · Stiff hips - ‘How can I change my attitude to moving forward?’ Anything on the right side of the body mirrors attitudes to do with the masculine, men, the future or our career. The left side reflects the feminine aspects, our attitude to women, the past or our home life.
· Our animals will reflect your inner qualities back to you. If your animals have seemingly different characteristics, each one is representing a part of your personality – that is why it has come into your life.
‘As soon as you are ready to ask for help you are ready to receive it. You are ready to accept the wisdom that goes with it. Then the higher powers will align themselves to help you.’ You unconsciously transmit your energy out to the Universe. Some of your qualities are magnetic and others repellant. You have drawn towards yourself everyone and everything that is in your life. In regards to the people in our lives, we attract these which represent something about ourselves, be it good or bad, positive or negative. People who do not resonate with our energetic frequency are not attracted to us.
The vibration you emit is made up of your conscious and unconscious energy – some repellant, some magnetic, some neutral. The underlying law is ‘like attracts like’. We attract into our lives people and situations that have similar vibrations to our own. Negative qualities such as depression, neediness, selfishness, desperation, greediness, unkindness or thoughtlessness transmit on a low frequency. If we have these elements in our personalities we will magnetize someone with similar energy into your life. Positive qualities such as love, happiness, kindness, delight and generosity transmit on a higher frequency energy and magnetizes people with similar energy into your life.
Look around you and note the characters around you in your life. They are in your life for a reason. Our underlying beliefs attract situations and people to us. If you have a belief that you are not deserving, you will attract people into your life who mirror that belief back to you by treating you badly. If you believe that you have to serve others, you will attract people who need to be looked after in some way. If you believe that no one could possibly understand you, you will magnetize and attract people who do not understand you. The person who keeps drawing the same type of person into their lives is continuing to broadcast the same message.
The Law of Attraction works on many levels. If you are out of harmony with life you may attract food which disagrees with you. If you think self-critical thoughts then you are taking little swipes at yourself. If you are burying rage you may draw in attack. If you feel you do things because you feel you ‘should’ or feel obligated, then you are in bondage. You will attract situations and people that keep you bound. If you think negative thoughts you will attract negative people and situations. If you are sending out positive energy, you will attract help when you need it.
The inner attracts the outer. If something in your outer world is not what you want it to be, look inside and shift how you feel about yourself. You will then automatically attract different people and experiences to you. Do not send out negative energy and wait for a disaster to be magnetized towards you. Send out positive energy and wait for a miracle to be drawn towards you.
But did you know there are other Universal Spiritual Laws that are just as helpful and important as the Law of Attraction?
There is -
THE LAW OF ATTACHMENT
The 'Law of Attachment' teaches us what the Buddhists teach us – that one of the root causes of suffering is being too attached to someone or something. Being too attached to an outcome – eg: "will my business or relationship be a success?" – doesn't allow for energy to flow. You get too fixed on a desired outcome and there you remain.
Yes, it's only human, but part of our gig here on Earth is to overcome our base natures as we move towards mastering the Spiritual Laws. If we are angry with someone or dislike them a lot, we stay attached to them. If we love someone or something, we can be too attached. You can have anything you wish in your life - but if your sense of self-worth or your happiness depends on having it, then you are ‘attached’ to it.
Know this: Whoever or whatever you are attached to, can manipulate and control you.
Cords are formed between people who have unresolved issues between them. Every time you send thoughts or words of anger, jealousy, hurt, envy or need to someone, you manifest a tiny thread which attaches to them. An occasional thought may dissolve it, but if you consistently send negative feelings out, the threads will form ropes or cords. These will remain and bind you together, until they are released.
In subsequence lifetimes, the cords will reactivate and draw you inevitably towards those with whom you have unresolved issues. This is to enable the soul the opportunity to do things differently. We can be attached to things or objects. Negative energies such as greed, pride, envy and need can send huge cords to objects like houses, cars, bank balances and jobs. This is why it is called ‘the trappings of wealth’.
You can, of course, have a beautiful home, a great job and a lovely car to drive - but, if you need to live in that beautiful home and you need to drive that fancy car to give you status or security, it then becomes a ‘trapping’.
In regards to relationships, you are entitled to enjoy a wonderful, loving relationship with a suitable partner. Neediness though, cords you to your partner with the result that you are pulled to and fro emotionally (and psychically). Co-dependant relationships enmesh you in cords so that it is difficult to feel objective about the relationship, or to leave your partner. You are bound.
When a parent becomes bound to their child it becomes difficult to release them into adulthood. A child may be so attached to a parent that it is difficult to form and maintain mature, adult relationships with a partner.
Attachment is ‘conditional’ love. Unconditional love dissolves the cords that bind. If you need someone to behave in a certain way in order to love them, then that is NOT love – it is attachment. We hold (and cling) onto others for our sake, not theirs. When we put our hopes, desires and expectations on people, they react from their own patterns. When we accept them as they are, this is Love.
It is very common for a whole family to be entangled in cords of co-dependency. Shame and guilt bind you to memories and hold you back. When you are ready to forgive yourself for your past actions, you dissolve these restricting cords and the memory looses its energy.
Forgiveness dissolves cords for all time. Our souls wish for us to face and release all our unresolved issues and life lessons so that we are free to move forward. When you forgive someone and totally let go of what has happened in the past, you free both that person and yourself.
Ask the Angels to help you cut your cords or do it yourself. The most powerful way of releasing attachment is by intention, visualization and unconditional love for the self and others.
As Diana Cooper says; "Detachment is a prerequisite for enlightenment."
THE LAW OF PROJECTION
All aspects of ourselves are reflected back to us. All that we perceive outside self is a mirror of something within. Therefore, everything that we see outside is a ‘projection’. We project our energy, both positive and negative, onto other people and assume it is within them, often denying that it is within us. Every time you say the words ‘you are’ or ‘he is’ or ‘she is/he is’, you are projecting something of yourself onto someone else. When we assume that someone else feels as we do, it is a projection. For example, statements such as ‘you must feel awful about that’, or ‘you must be so happy …’ are both projections. You are putting your feelings on to the other person. We project our fears on to the world. It is more comfortable to imagine that someone else has the qualities we wish to deny are within ourselves.
‘It takes one to know one.’
‘A pot calling the kettle black’. Etc.
If you burying your hostility and express it as passive anger, you will project hostility on to those around you and will imagine that people are aggressive whether they are or not. You will selectively imagine angry or threatening attitudes where none are intended or expressed. Those who project their hatred/anger/rage think everyone is out to get them. We project our insecurities and our sexuality on to others. The person who is paranoid about the morality of others is projecting their own underlying immorality. Someone who suspects that all around him are cheating him is projecting his inner cheat. As a consequence he may attract cheats into his life. Someone who accuses their partner of being unfaithful is projecting their own lack of faith in the relationship.
On the positive side, we also project our gracious, powerful, beautiful and brilliant qualities on to others. Every time you think or say good, positive things about people, you are projecting your own qualities within. We project our love on to others. A person who is kind will imagine that all around them are also kind, and will attract this energy into their life. Projecting yourself on to someone else prevents you from taking responsibility for Self. Most people do not even realize that what they are saying is actually within them. It is a powerful form of denial.
THE LAW OF REQUEST
Under Spiritual Law, if you want help you must ask for it. The Law of Request teaches us to ask when our souls are ready, with clarity and intention. It is our personal responsibility to ask for the things we need in our lives. With the Law of Request, we are NOT to impose ourselves upon others. If you push yourself upon someone who hasn’t asked for your help you help you prevent them from sorting out their own situation for themselves, hindering their own learning process. Also, when you force your help or advice on to someone, you bear the karma if it goes wrong. It is bad manners to rush in uninvited and most likely your help will be ignored or unappreciated. (If someone is in obvious need of help such as drowning or stepping into traffic, you step in and help in some way...) However, if you feel upset and stressed by the mess someone else has gotten themselves into, then it is a reflection of something going on within yourself. (Spiritual Law of REFLECTION) and is an indication that you need to look at yourself rather than attempt to rescue someone else.
If you are involved in a difficult situation at work or in your career, the experience and learning you gain from dealing with the problem and overcoming it may be the perfect stepping stone you need to move you on in your career. The experience teaches you new and different skills and prepares you for promotion or change in career path. You wouldn’t appreciate it if someone leaped in and took over without asking your permission as that would be interfering and it would block you from having the life experince. In the spiritual realms, Angels, Spirit Guildes and Higher Light Beings are unable to interfere with your life choices. Instead, they will stand by with patience and compassion and watch you making a mess of your situation if that is what you need for your spiritual growth. They will though, save you from serious accident if that is not your karma or designated life experience, and even death if it is not your time or right Exit Point. Not only is it spiritual bad manners for them to interfere but it also stops you from learning your life lessons from the experience. There are times when it is appropriate to ask for help from your Spirit Guides and Angels. As soon as you are ready to ask for help, you are ready to receive it. You are ready to accept the wisdom that goes with it. Then the higher powers will align themselves to help you.’ The answer most often lies in the question and the more clarity you have in your question, the fuller the help you will receive.
Some people are constantly crying out, ‘When, what, how, why?’ They want to know the answer to one question after another. But these are demands rather than questions. They come from a place of desperation and neediness, rather than a centered open place. The person who is steadfastly walking the spiritual path goes within to find answers. As soon as you are ready to know something, the ‘teacher’ will appear to provide it. This may be in the form of a book, a person, a television program or a magazine article, etc.
‘The Universe is waiting to help you .... all you have to do is ask.’
THE LAW OF RESISTANCE
Every time we focus on something we are ‘calling’ it towards us. With our thoughts and beliefs we invite people, situations, experiences and material things into our life. When they arrive, if we do not really want them, we try to push them away. Many people invoke the Law of Resistance without being consciously aware that they are doing it. Your unconscious mind and the Universal mind work similar to computers. You cannot tell a computer ‘not’ to bring up a certain file if you have clicked on it, as it cannot accept negative instructions. It will assume you DO want that file and bring it up. Your conscious mind can discriminate between a negative instruction and a positive one - but your unconscious mind is fully engaged cannot tell the difference.
If you think a thought or make a statement often enough it will access your unconscious mind. Some people have illness in their lives because they ‘resist’ illness. If you are continuously thinking ‘I don’t want to be ill’, the word ‘ill’ filters constantly into your unconscious mind … making you ill. ‘Don’t’, ‘can’t’, ‘won’t’ and ‘not’ are words which invoke the Law of Resistance. For example, the thought ‘I won’t ever find a perfect partner’ resists the perfect partner; ‘I don’t want to be poor’ brings about poverty; ‘I can’t live in that awful house’ keeps you living in that awful house; and ‘I won’t ever be like my mother’ ensures that you will become just like her.
On the positive side, statements such as ‘I am healthy’; ‘I deserve a perfect partner’; ‘I welcome riches’; ‘I live in a beautiful home’ bring that energy towards you. “Never resist failure or poverty. Instead attract success, wealth and abundance. Always embrace the positive rather than resisting the negative.”
The Law of Resistance is triggered by ‘victim’ consciousness. A victim is someone who blames others for their fate, believes the world owes them, and they generally feel sorry for themselves. When someone is thinking ‘Poor me’ or ‘I am so unlucky’ they are being a ‘victim’ who is resisting abundance and generosity. If someone is blaming another for what is happening in their own life, then they are a ‘victim’ who is resisting taking personal responsibility for what they themselves have created.
When we feel angry or guilty we resist the joy of life and the magnificence of ‘Self’.
THE LAW OF REFLECTION
The mirror of the Universe is so honest and accurate that your deepest secrets show up in the reflections you see of yourself. Every single person and situation in your life is a mirror of an aspect of yourself, good or bad, positive or negative. When the Universe presents us with someone or something in life, this is a mirror. The Spiritual Law of Reflection reminds us to look in the mirror and change ourselves. The more a characteristic in someone else bothers you, the more your soul is trying to draw a reflection to your attention.
If the Universe really wants to draw your attention to something, it will give you three (3) mirrors to look into at once. Water reflects what is happening to your emotions or spirituality. If your emotions are ‘leaking’, then this is telling you that you have unshed tears or unresolved emotional issues and this will manifest itself in leaking or dripping taps and the like. Rivers, lakes and oceans carry the emotional and spiritual life-force of an area. Water also symbolically washes and purifies. Fire is hot and bright. A fire in the hearth or campfire may indicate a peaceful, comfortable, warm centre. A rampaging bushfire reflects the anger and hostility of all those affected by it. Fire is also a transmuter of negative energy. Earth is solid, but can change form. If you get stuck in the mud, it has something to tell you about where you are at in your life. An earthquake tells you that the foundations of your life are not as secure as you may have thought. From Earth there is new growth. Air is energy. Air represents communication and new ideas. A hurricane or strong winds blow away outmoded thinking from an area, and heralding the new.
Your car also represents aspects of you. If your brakes fail it may be a warning for you to stop something you are doing. The lights don’t work - can you see where you are going in life? The paintwork is scratched and battered - are you feeling dented or battered? Flat tyres - are you feeling deflated or is someone letting you down? Are you letting yourself down? The horn doesn’t work - maybe it is time that you speak up for yourself. Flat battery - are you feeling flat; have you run out of energy? Gears - gears facilitate the movement from one speed to another. If your gears are grating this could be indicating that you may have trouble making a move in your life.
Animals reflect the qualities and characteristics of their owners. A well-disciplined, good natured, friendly dog reflects an owner you can trust and feel comfortable with. A wild, savage or noisy dog will warn you to be careful of its owner, even if your impression is of a gentle person.
Whatever comes into your life, look into the mirror and see what it has to teach you. Once we understand the Law of Reflection, we can expand our spiritual growth by looking at what life is telling us.

Good Evening Captain, I just want to thank you for taking the time to write such a beautiful Enlightening post. It is absolutely inspiring and I JUST LOVE IT,,,,,I WILL READ IT MANY TIMES AS IT IS A KEEPER. Thank You so much, you have made my DAY.....Leinida
I'm glad! I think these laws are vital to our understanding and growth.
This post is deleted!
Thank you for doing all that for us to help us learn and see things on another wavelength.
Knew i was go through the Reflection for a reason.
If we are confused or lost on our lifepath, it is because we are blind to the wealth of clues and messages that our guides and angel helpers send us every day. Each person and situation that is drawn to us is a huge clue to what is going on inside us.
We do not recognize in others what is not in our own selves. We wonder why we keep attracting angry, frustrated people to us at work - it is because inside we are angry and frustrated about something. We wonder why we attract abusers or cheaters in our love lives - that is simply because inside we cheat or abuse ourselves or others and don't trust ourselves enough. We cannot find a job, not realizing the Universe is complying with our subconscious wish to not have any work or responsibility. We can't find partners who want to commit because we have this 'other person' (the subconscious) inside who deep down fears commitment. When you and this 'other person' push in the same direction, you move forward. When the two of you push against each other, there is a standstill.
If your life is not making any progress, ask this 'person' inside why they are pushing against what your conscious mind really wants. If your conscious mind doesn't know what it wants, ask this other person what he/she wants in order to get a clue, though it might be the opposite of what you need. For example, your other person might tell you he/she wants to withdraw from life and love so as to be safe and not get hurt - then you will know you have to go out into the world and face it head on, doing all the things you fear. Or it may tell you that he/she always wanted to work in medicine but there is a fear of not being good enough or failing. Then you will see you are already failing by not trying for what you want. It will be a big clue about what might be holding you back and what fears you must push through in order to achieve a happy future.
Lucky us, getting all these insights sent to us by those who love and protect us!
This was just beautiful and so very enlightening...I have printed it and will read it over every day....thank you Captain!!
Lots to think about. Its not easy to change your way of thinking especially when its deep inside & hiding. Lots of reflection to look in all the places I've been stuffing my emotions & thoughts....I can't wait to be lighter & free of what may be holding me back.
If you think in a negative way, you will get what you focus on, ie. "It's not easy to change". But if you reverse that to "I find it easy to change", you will make progress. One of the universal laws is that you get what you focus your attention on (Law of Attraction) - so if you focus on difficulty and struggle, then that is what you attract.
Doubt prevents manifestation. If you don't believe that a relationship, a medicine/surgery/a diet or health regime/healing, a job, a creative project, an idea, or whatever will work for you - despite it being effective for many other people - then it will not work for you.
TheCaptain, What if you are a positive person and think the best, but occasionally doubt creeps in. How can you get the best in life if this always seems the case. People tell you that they love to be around you, that you are a kind, good person, good with customers, but boom they let you go, just when you thought everything was getting better, after this you start to second guess yourself, your life and even if life is going in the right direction. I try to see the positive in life until something bad happens to me and than I think of all the reasons why this happens to me. They saY that you do not get more than you can handle, but I sometimes wonder if the spirits do not know how fragile you really are? I know tha everything hapens for a reason, sometimes our health and situations are more than we feel we can deal with. So if indeed we feel this way, are we attractiing life situtaions such as this?
Yes so very enlightening !! Thank You Captain ! now I have to get back to work and read them again and find out my screwweee
Sporty, your guides know exactly how much you can handle and what you need - better than you do. You need to look at the people and situations in your life to see what they are telling you. they are clues to what is going on inside of you. If you are tired and unhappy, you will attract the same old tired, miserable situations and people until you try a new way of living. If people around you are lying to you, it is because they are mirroring the lies you tell yourself. Are you lying to yourself about needing all the people in your life? Are they really making you happy?
Losing your job also tells you something about yourself, that maybe the bosses lost confidence in you as you lost confidence in yourself. Or maybe they saw your age as being an impediment - if you yourself feel that you are 'too old'. Whatever you feel about yourself will be reflected in the things that happen to you. So if things seem to be going wrong in your life, you are being asked to put them right by making necessary changes that you may have feared or put off making. At the bottom of all these experiences, you are being asked if you like, trust, and respect yourself - and believe you deserve to be happy.
This will help as I come back and read over--I'm sure there's a message for me--in fact, I know there is.
