The Laws of the Universe are there to help us to learn our way back to love and truth. So when we are off track, out of balance, stuck in some faulty thinking, belief, interpretation, attitude, we have lessons and challenges. These are not a punishment, bad, wrong for us. They are exactly what we need to show us what needs healing and clearing so that we can progress along our spiritual path. If we don’t heed these lessons and seek to understand what they are teaching us, they come back again and again until we do heed them, listen to them and seek to learn what they are teaching us. Each one of us, if we think about it, can see lessons, hard experiences that have been repeated over and over in our lives.
So we learn in the school of hard knocks until we take responsibility for ourselves and the suffering we experience and seek to understand what it means, what it is teaching us. We take leadership over our energies and stop giving our power away to the victim and powerlessness and blame.
To help us with this we need to work with the Universal Laws.
We all recognise some of the physical laws such as the law of gravity but most have never thought about the laws at the psychological level even though we are familiar with a lot of them.
Some of these are –
What you hold in the mind, you create, make happen, what you expect, you bring toward you.
“All that we are is the result of what we have thought”. Buddha
Every cause has an effect and every effect has a cause.
What you sow, you reap. What you give out, you get back.
What you focus on increases. What you give attention to grows.
If you are feeling low its telling you something. If you sit with your journal and listen using questions such as –
Why am I feeling low?
What do I think is causing this? Ask your Higher Self and Spirit to help you to understand.
Try to trace the feeling back to thoughts you have been entertaining.
If you persevere, you will understand what’s going on for you and what you need to do to clear and heal this experience.
It’s wonderful to make the effort to do this work and take charge of your energies rather than letting them run you. Now you are in charge and you have the power to make different choices and to change your experience.
