There are five mystical laws which govern our reality. These laws, when understood and accepted, can lead us to greater clarity, mastering our life’s purpose, and allowing us to access the whole of our power.
When we fight against these laws, whether knowingly or unknowingly, we are met with greater challenges, a sense of confusion about our life, ill physical and mental health, and an overall sense of powerlessness.
Each of these laws is always and unchanging. They are forever working in your life whether you are aware of them or not. By acknowledging and accepting these laws, you can learn to use them to your advantage, much in the same way as learning gravity taught us how to fly.
1. There is Only Now
The first mystical law reminds us that there is only right now. The past exists only in memory and that memory is happening right now. The future exists only in thought and that thought is happening right now.
This law tells us to remain fully present in the current moment, conscious only of what is, and not fretting about what was or what could be. It does not mean to forget the past or not think of the future, but rather to acknowledge that every thought one has is right now. All of our power is in the now.
“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
Beliefs that we need to heal past traumas or fix something that occurred yesterday pull us out of the now. It places our thoughts on things which are no longer within our control because our control only exists in the present moment. You are exactly who you are right now. You are precisely where you need to be right now.
Pull your conscious awareness only to the present moment and therein lies all of your power.
2. Forgiveness is Necessary
The second mystical law calls us to forgive. Forgiveness is a necessary component of staying in the present moment, acknowledging that everything is as it should be, and allowing us to be completely who we are. Forgiveness does not have anything to do with forgetting the past nor does it mean remaining in situations which are ill for our health and well-being.
Forgiveness is simply acknowledging that what was done was done and we have complete control over our now. It frees us from seeking justice or revenge which only serves to steal our joy, and lets us release this to higher forces. It allows us to see that everything happens for a reason and helps us to be exactly what we need to be. Lessons have been given to us and we can now forgive and move forward.
“Forgiveness is a mystical, not a logical, command. It makes no sense to the reasoning mind, because the reasoning mind is incapable of forgiveness. Genuine forgiveness is a self-initiated mystical act that requires the assistance of grace to release you from the compulsive and often self-righteous chatter of the ego, which continually enforces a position of entitled anger or hurt.” ~ Caroline Myss
Forgiveness applies to us as well as to others. Forgiving ourselves for our perceived mistakes, for remaining in a situation we should not have been in, or for giving someone more chances than we wished we did. Forgiving ourselves tells us that we are doing the best we can in the moment and it frees us from “shoulding” ourselves and taking away our power. Forgiveness allows us to place our energy back in the present moment and not in rectifying the past.
3. Everything is an Illusion
Our entire reality is based on our mind. Everything we see, hear, feel, taste, and smell is based on what our minds tell us. We cannot see reality as it is as we can only comprehend it through our mind. Thus, everything we experience is an illusion of the mind.
“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.” ~ Albert Einstein
Acknowledging that all is an illusion frees us and empowers us. It reminds us that nothing outside of ourselves can take away our power nor can it create our reality. Only we can create what we experience in the now. We have the power to train our senses to perceive reality in any way we choose.
Everything in our experience is an illusion of the mind and therefore through making the active choice to see the world in a new way, we can alter this illusion. No one can take this power away from us.
4. Trust in Divine Intervention and Synchronicity
This fourth mystical law reminds us that we are a piece of something bigger; something that is working for the highest good of all. Everything that happens is for a reason. We are all divinely connected in manners beyond what we are capable of perceiving and this connection allows for continuous synchronicities upon our path.
How many times has something happened that turned out to be a blessing in disguise? How many moments have you experienced that seemed insignificant until you saw them as part of a bigger picture? This is divine intervention. This is a piece of an energetic ballet that brings things together to work on a larger scale.
“At various points in our lives, or on a quest, and for reasons that often remain obscure, we are driven to make decisions which prove with hindsight to be loaded with meaning.” ~ Swami Satchidananda
The paradox of this lies within the acknowledgement that we are in full control of our existence and no one can remove that power while we experience divine intervention which seems outside of ourselves. The fourth mystical law as a paradox cannot be explained and yet it is truth. Trusting in ourselves and our own power while acknowledging synchronicities from a divine plan is the closest we can come to understanding this paradox.
5. Maintain Congruence of Mind, Body, and Soul
The fifth mystical law tells us that, regardless of our purpose in our own lives or in that of a greater divine plan, we must seek to achieve and maintain a congruence of the mind, body, and soul. Essentially your beliefs must match your actions and your actions must match your beliefs at all times. This congruence is only possible when we can achieve a full acceptance of each aspect of ourselves.
Often called “alignment” or “awakening,” congruence of the mind, body, and spirit occurs when we are in complete harmony with ourselves and the world around us, rather than fighting against what is, allowing for divine graces to naturally flow to you and through you in order to achieve your life purpose. It is the natural state of all things.
“Be congruent, be authentic, be your true self.” ~ Mahatma Ghandi
These mystical laws are eternal. Using them in conjunction with the understanding that the world is ever-changing and our power is always within us, we are able to tap into our intuition and harness our personal power in order to achieve our life’s work. Not only does working with these laws rather than fighting against them bring ease and abundance to our lives, but it also enhances each experience calling us to exist in a state of appreciation and awe as the world unfolds around us.
