You have a theory of how life works and then bang, someone or something blows that theory out of the water. And you say, well, okay it’s true some of the time. And then another theory shows up…seemingly out of the blue and you give that a whirl. And before you know it another theory bites the dust…hmmm it seems life doesn’t work exactly like that either.
And one fine day, you come across some ideas and principles that you tentatively test and woohoo they work. You discover that there are two actual outlooks on the world, two outlooks that we all share…a natural focus and a spiritual one.
It’s the spiritual focus that allows us to fulfill our desires…that leads us towards the life of promise and possibility that awaits. There’s a magnificent inner world that supports us in attaining and achieving our desires…all our desires. But we must take control, we must learn to use our powers and not be used by them.
Everything we want, everything we desire must be ours in consciousness before we can experience it in our physical world. We must find a way to create a prosperity consciousness if we’re to be financially free, or a health consciousness before we can know true health.
There are laws of life that operate every single solitary moment in our life, whether we’re conscious of them or not. As we master these laws we learn to think in a way that is essential to our wellbeing; we learn to balance our thinking, guiding our thoughts towards progress, towards our ideal life.
Eleven, sometimes forgotten Laws of Life.
The Law Of Thinking.
This law relates to the power of your thoughts. Every single thing in our world today started as a thought in the mind. And we begin by having a clear picture, a vision of the things we want, or the person we want to be.
The Law of Supply
Tells us there’s an unlimited supply. Never mind what you see on the tv or read online or in newspapers. Whatever anyone tells you, there is plenty of everything to go around. Our success depends on us becoming aware of this abundance. We can’t experience what isn’t in our awareness.
The Law of Attraction
Does this one need any explanation? Probably not. Where we put our attention is what we attract into our world. Like attracts like. Have a negative thought or two and pretty soon they’ll bring their brothers, sisters, aunt Sophie and uncle Jim along until you have a huge family of negative thoughts wandering around in your head, making you miserable. Nuff said.
The Law of Receiving
Can you say yes, to what you want? Without your hands and sometimes your arms open wide to receive, you won’t get it. Be gracious, allow what you want to come in. You’d be surprised at how many of us turn away the great things that come knocking on our door, because we don’t know how to receive. Receiving is the other side of the coin from giving. Be a generous giver and a gracious receiver.
The Law of Increase
Explains how we can experience a greater and more expanded life. Being grateful for where we are, giving thanks for what we have aligns us with the law of increase. However good life already is, it can continue to increase. Finding something to praise during times of difficulties helps to kick the difficulties out of the door.
Law of Compensation
Plant cabbages and you wouldn’t expect to harvest strawberries. This is what the law of compensation tells us. Plant thought seeds of woe and sorrow and lack and we can hardly expect to get bountiful joy.
The Law of Non-Resistance
Ooooh this is a good one. If you’re pushing against something in life, don’t think it means it’s going away. On the contrary, it’s going to get bigger. This is one of the really powerful laws. Focusing on what’s wrong, or the obstacles or the negative in anything, be it an event or a person just means that you’re giving your power away and your power is the fuel for all these things to grow stronger. Don’t do it. Learn to ignore or release what bothers you.
The Law of Forgiveness
Holding on to hurts and grievances creates an energy that attracts more things to be hurt about in our life.
Whatever we hold against someone, even if it’s a belief of sickness, or poverty, or anything else, we must let it go, by believing him to be what we know he would desire to be. In that way we have forgiven. Changing our concept of someone is forgiveness, just as much as letting go of our grievances against them. Forgiveness is complete forgetfulness. If you haven’t forgotten then you haven’t truly forgiven.
The Law of Sacrifice
Is about being willing to let go of the old in order to experience the new. We can’t keep the old thoughts and beliefs and live in a new state of consciousness. If we want to be different, we have to have new ideas from which to think. We give of ourselves to improve our life.
The Law of Obedience
Simply means that these laws govern our lives, like it or not. They’re operating every day, in every aspect of our world and we’re either working in harmony with them, or pushing against them…and we know what that means. Not a good news week that’s for sure. The laws aren’t meant to hurt us, but to work on our behalf, to support us to fulfill all the desires of our hearts. Use them well. It determines your destiny.
Have you given your power away lately? Are you practicing using any of these laws? Do share in the comments and encourage us all.

Well, Elle, this might be a first for me…the first time I find I actually agree with “laws” whole-heartedly and practice them enthusiastically 🙂
Welcome Joy, so nice to have you join in the conversation. How great that you are already practicing these principles…imho we need to be using them all to live the greatest and most blessed life we’re truly meant to live. Which means my dear one, that you are leading a wonderful life and all I have to say about that is woohooo! 🙂
The Law of Non-Resistance – I really like that one as well. It can really be an eye-opener when you see it manifested in your life. For most, it is a lesson we need to learn more than once.
Thanks for the continued inspiration Elle.
Hello Dan, your presence is so welcome…pun intended. I so agree with you…I’m discovering that I push against things I didn’t even know I was pushing against! I’m discovering that imperturbability is the one place where I can be sure I’m not in that old ‘resistance’ mode. 🙂
Yes, yes, yes. So often I find “laws of life” to be confining and narrow, but these feel freeing. Thank you for sharing.
good food for the thought
i believe if someone managed to use all of these tools together then his life will improve a great deal
Thank you Elle…. I’ll share this with a group I’m meeting with this afternoon. I know it will be an asset to their growth.
Welcome Shauna Marie – hope they enjoy it. 🙂
