EPISODE 124: “The Seven Cosmic Laws”

August 5, 2020

These days all kinds of “spiritual authors” have all kinds of books about “spiritual laws.

However, most people mix and match “laws” that tend to validate their model of reality.

In this episode I quickly cover the “Seven Cosmic Laws” brought to the world by Hermes Tresmegistus and though the laws were just published around 100 years ago, the manuscript is believed to be over 10,000 years old.

These are the laws that govern as laws and as you’re listening to this episode you’ll find two things: one, it will be obvious why your life has unfolded in the way that it has and secondly, you’ll start to see just how powerful you are.

The Seven Cosmic Laws are known as Hermetic Wisdom and in this episode I lay out all seven for you.

The Laws…

1. The Principle of Mentalism:

The All is mind; The Universe is Mental.

2. The Principle of Correspondence:

As above, so below; as below, so above. As within, as without; as without, so within.

3. The Principle of Vibration:

Nothing rests; Everything moves; Everything vibrates.

4. The Principle of Polarity:

Everything is dual; Everything has poles; Everything has its pair of opposites; Like and unlike are the same;Opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; Extremes meet; All truths are but half-truths;All paradoxes may be reconciled.

6. The Principle of Rhythm:

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.

7. The Principle of Cause & Effect:

Every cause has its effect; Every effect has its cause; Everything happens according to  law’ Chance is but a name for law not recognized’ There are many planes of causation,but nothing escapes the law.

8. The Principle of Gender:

Gender is in everything; Everything has its masculine and feminine principles; Gender manifests on all planes.

Transformational Takeaway

Our lives are governed by cosmic laws and when we know these laws we then have the “scepter of power.”

Achieving Universal Knowledge Through the Kybalion 

Okay, the seven cosmic laws. There's a book you can find it online, obviously on Amazon, and it's called and I mentioned it before here in the podcast, it's called the The Kybalion K Y B A L I O N . Now the KYBALION has the seven cosmic laws in it. And when I say seven cosmic laws, like I talked about in the introduction, it's not you know, I'm not taking anything away from anyone but Deepak Chopra had, you know, a book many years ago about like the seven spiritual laws of success or something like that. And that's all well and good and great. But that's not what I'm talking about. These laws are believed to be at least written around 10,000 years ago. And you might be thinking what gem there was no recorded history 10,000 years ago, and I'll get to that in just a minute. But these laws basically, are basically ancient principles that rule your life. And once you know the ancient principles, then you have a lot more influence in the outcomes in your life.

Now, how did I come to know about this book? And to be candid, I probably never would have heard of this book had my brother in law Don Javier, the shaman not told me about this. Now, he doesn't have any books. I mean, if you go into his house, he doesn't have a single book. In his office, it's all spiritual healing tools. And I mean, no books, none. And being a shaman and the sorcerer, he doesn't get us information from books. He goes right to the source, you know, the divine mind. But many years ago is the first year that I met him and I said, Hey, what do you want for Christmas? And he said, you know, many years ago, which this is probably not true, he's leading me to the book for a reason. He said many years ago, somebody gave me a copy of a book called The Kybalion, and I lost it. So why don't you get me another copy? Now, the truth is, he didn't want a copy of The Kybalionand he was inadvertently telling me to go discover the Kybalion and for myself, and what did I do? I went out right away, and that's this is back. I mean, we didn't have Amazon and all this and I had to go to a bookstore and special order it and all that kind of stuff.

But when I got the book, I dug into it and I found it to be, I found it to be life changing because it has which I'm going to share with you in this episode, it has seven principles of life call it whatever you want. The seven cosmic laws, seven principles, whatever, but it had, it has seven principles that completely changed the way that I thought about life. And I also want to be candid, it took me several years to really start.I don't know if I want to use the word mastering. But it took me several years before I came to what I would call more masterful or advanced understanding of the laws. The copyright is around, I don't know 1904 or something like that. And the author is known as the three initiates, meaning there's who knows who wrote it. It's believed that her mess the rest Miss justice, which I'll talk about in just a minute, I wrote the book thousands of years ago, like 10,000 years ago ago when the manuscript is that old, and it's published in the 1920's or 19 final no four or five No, I think four or five anyway I don't know because I haven't looked people don't have a copy have not looked at it and a lot of years.

Okay, so Hermes who was Hermes. So it's believed that Hermes was several, in carnations of a great, great cosmic energetic being. He's been associated with even the name Hermes Trismegistus, which means three times great. Hermes as has been associated with the Greek God Hermes, and the Egyptian God Thoth. So I want to read some stuff here. I'm going to read a little bit to you in this episode, and then I'm going to break it down for you very simply. But in the book, The Secret Teachings of all ages, about Hermes, the quote is this. Hermes is the master of all arts and sciences, perfect and all crafts. rulers are the three worlds scribe of the gods and keeper of the book. The books of life, Thoth ,Hermes Trismegistus . The three times greatest the first Intelligencer, who is regarded by the ancient Egyptians as the embodiment of the Universal Mind. While in all probability there actually existed a great sage and educator by the name of Hermes. It is impossible to extricate the historical man from the mass of legendary accounts, which attempt to identify him with the cosmic principle of thought.

That's a mouthful. Let me just put it this way. He's regarded to be one extraordinarily powerful, all knowing, all seeing cosmic being who, perhaps at multiple times, incarnated on planet Earth. Okay. And he's believed to be the author of The Kybalion. And he also wrote the hermetic corpus, which is a series of ancient texts, and they're basically full of ancient spiritual and cosmic wisdom. Which even you know, in the last several years science and in particular physics is demonstrating. Alright, so that pretty much wraps that up the hermetic teachings. What is hermeticism? And let me read this to you because I can tell you, but I want you to have accurate representation to make sure that I don't say something out of that it's really not. But hermeticism the hermetic tradition represents a non-Christian lineage of Gnosticism, which is a name for a variety of ancient religious ideas and systems dating back to the first and second centuries AD. Now I want to point out I want to interject or even even though it says religious, it's not that it's not dogma, okay, so I want to be very clear about that. There are surviving writings of hermeticism are known as the Corpus Hermetica, which is composed of a series of letters from from a master her Hermes Trismegistus, when he tries to enlighten his discipline. These letters were lost. To the Western world after classical times, but survived in the Byzantine libraries,

On the fifth century, the letters were rediscovered and translated into Latin by the count, the Court of Cosimo De Medici. Yes, grandfather to Lorenzo de Medici, the patron of Leonardo da Vinci and several other Renaissance science artists. Oh my gosh, that's a mouthful to get that out. These letters were so influential during the time that they acted as a catalyst in the development of Italian Renaissance thought and culture, being a gnostic tradition. Hermeticism is a school of ideas and systems that focus on the pursuit of gnosis meaning, the pursuit of empirical knowledge pretending to spiritual mysteries. Okay, now the breath again, I mean, that's a whole lot to say. But I wanted to give you kind of a grounding. I mean, you can go get the book and you can actually You can actually, you can Google. And you can even find the seven cosmic laws in PDF format, etc, and download.

And many, many years ago, I even had the domain name called the seven cosmic laws. And I had all of these in a very easy to understand format on a website. And this was literally probably 20 years ago and I maintained it for a couple of years and let it go. But these are very powerful principles, and I want to go through each one. And I want to explain the principle to you. I want to read a little bit to you about it, not much, maybe a paragraph or two about each one to give you a different person's perspective and then I want to break it down in the very simple language for you.

Okay, so let's get into the seven cosmic laws. The first cosmic law is called the Principle of Mentalism. And basically what it means is this the all is mind The universe is mental. So the first principle is the principle of mentalism, the all meaning everything that there is that exists in the universe or universes, is mental. Now let me read something to you here very quickly one paragraph and then I'll break it down for you. The first principle embodies the truth that all is mind, meaning the universe itself, at an underlying and foundational level is mental, that all phenomena of life, matter and energy of the material universe are thoughts of an infinite and universal living mind. Which means all things share a connection and the fact they exist within the mind of air quote “The all”.

Another way to put this would be like I'm gonna segue here would be like, everything is the quantum field. Everything is the quantum dimension. Everything is a great grand, mystery. Everything is a reflection of God if you want to use that word to concretize it a little more let me keep reading here. So, let me back up last sentence, which means all things share a connection and the fact they exist within the mind of the all as it is put and therefore, they are all subject to the laws of created things. The mental universe for the sake of experiment can be explained as an infinite intelligence, intelligent field, and even the nature of consciousness itself, creating a dialogue of thought, which dances with thought.

Okay, let me break that down and put it in the simple words because over the years even though Don Javier referred this to me, he's I've always I've learned it this way and broken it down into simplicity. If you were to go get the Kybalion and and read the actual hermetic teachings in the text, which I encourage you to do, it's kind of to some small degree like reading the Bible. Metaphorically speaking a lot of these and vowels and those and a lot you know, it's kind of like written because it was translated into Latin like six 700 hundred years ago. So it's kind of like okay, I have to kind of drudge through this a little bit you know, and kind of kind of work to get through this.

So I'm going to break down each one of these principles after I share with you the formal definition of it, I'm going to break down and share with you in simple words, simple words is this. Everything is mind. Everything is mental. There has been one mind in the universe, and we are all inlets and outlets to that one mind. Now Carl Jung called it the collective unconscious, I call it which I've learned is the divine mind can we can all tap into and we are all part of the divine mind. Now to concretize that physically, let me give you an example. You can go out into the ocean literally wait out to waist deep and even ankle deep doesn't matter. And take a little teaspoon and take a couple of drops of water out of the ocean. But you know what, you have those couple of drops of water from the ocean, but it's still the same as the whole of the ocean. And you pour it back into the ocean and then emerges with the ocean again, the same thing with you is that you are part of everything. And you have access. Let me just keep on going here and I have no notes on any of that. So I'm going to hop around a little bit, but you have access to all define confident,cosmic infinite wisdom.

Literally you were part of the all and being part of the all you have access to part of the all through divine mind, which you access through what we human beings called the subconscious mind. And one of my programs I teach people if you want answers go to divine mind by giving them and your subconscious mind to go to divine mind to get the answer that you want. Because you're also your independent individual subconscious mind is really a part of divine mind. And to give you an example there, I've got a question for you. And I have a question at the end of each one of these seven laws. So one of the questions is, have you ever had like an amazing idea? And you're like, Oh, my gosh, this is amazing. I mean, no one's ever thought about this before. I mean, I'm a genius. I mean, this is like, Wow, I can't believe nobody thought about this. And then you get online and you're like, oops, other people have already thought about it. Why? Because we're all connected to the source, which again, quantum field quantum dimension, God infinite field, great, grand mystery. We're all literally plugged in to divine mind. So have you ever had that experience before?

Another simple example here would be is have you ever been with somebody and you've been quiet and you've been thinking something and the other Person automatically says, You know what, I've been thinking XYZ, and you're like, Oh my gosh, I'm thinking the exact same thing that you are and this exact moment. Well, that happens is because we're all consciousness, we're all part of divine mind and we are all connected in divine mind. So that being said, the final question I have before I move on, is how can you take that knowing and use that knowing that you're connected to divine mind? How can you use that to transform your life? So the first cosmic law is that the all is mind and the universe is mental.

Okay. The second called cosmic law is called the principle of correspondence. And plain and simple. And by the way, when I when I explain the law here in the podcast, this literally is from the Kabbalah in the principle of correspondence As above, so below As below, so above, as within, so without, as without. So within. Now let me read to you basically what someone else said about this and then I'll go to my simple words. This principle embodies the truth that there is always a correspondence between the laws of phenomena in various planes that manifest as being in life. Grasping this principle is what allows one to deduce the hidden solutions to problems by looking at what exists a layer above and below the problem to infer the pattern and shadow nature of what is in between, which means the problem so just as the knowledge of geometry allows one to measure the cosmos and map its movements, as a dance of spears and spirals, observing the principle of correspondence we can come to know the whole of the Universe by exploring the higher and lower nature of things, which surround the mystery and likewise discover more ourselves by experiencing and studying the world we are, integrally a part of through the pursuit of gnosis the micro is in the macro and vice versa.

Okay, so what's the simple words the simple understanding of this is that the physical world in front of your eyes is a reflection of higher consciousness and higher energy. The higher energy is literally underwhelmed with your physical life and your physical life is in around with your higher energy, your luminous body your higher self and divine mind. Now as I understand this, for example, and Judaism to starve David is a representation of as above so below and so below as above the two triangles pointing opposite directions. When you look at this recently, for example, I was in hold for a well I go to Whole Foods when I shop and I saw a Romanesco Broccoli. Now do you know what that is? It's basically broccoli. And it's called Romanesco Broccoli, but it looks like fractals meaning and you can look that up online fractals, meaning it looks like sacred geometry. There's all these spirals. And I mean, it's, it's mind blowing spectacular. And you see things like this in nature, like roses and flower petals and different things. And we're like, wow, how did that happen? Well, it's a reflection in the 3d world, the physical world of divine intelligence, which is mathematics, and mathematical energy and physics.

There was a divine intelligence which everything is mental the first law there is divine intelligence that runs through everything in the way of consciousness and energy. You know, a simple example would be is how does a potato seed know how to grow into a potato or potato or whatever you plan to get potatoes or how does a kernel of corn know to grow into an ear of corn and a stalk of corn and how does an acorn know How to grow into an oak tree there is divine intelligence in the seeds. So in the way that this was explained let me break this down for you very simply, when it says that as above so below so below as above and it said basically we have to go to a higher level. What I always go to myself when I'm looking to solve air quote problems, which I don't believe we have problems in life, we have circumstances and it's a matter of how we interpret them. When I'm looking for solutions, I'm looking for guidance, I'm looking for answers. What I do is I literally before I go to bed, I actually toss a question to my subconscious mind. And I will even verbally say subconscious mind, connect with divine mind and bring me the answer or the solution to XYZ.

And there's also an episode here one of the earlier episodes probably in the top 30 Top 30 that I created meaning the first 30 on DreamTime and using dream time, it's your inlet to all that is at your endless divine mind. It is literally your connection to unfettered pure consciousness. But when I'm solving something in my life, and I want to go to higher mind, I literally go through my subconscious mind and ask my subconscious mind. Literally, you know what, okay, this is my physical world, let's go to higher energy higher mind to literally find answers for this. So that's my simple answer for that going from the lower which is the physical 3d body to higher mind which would be 5D fifth dimension six dimension and higher consciousness and luminous pneus and luminosity. So the question for you and I've already answered this is how can you apply this principle to your own life?

Okay. Principle number three is the principle of vibration, and The Kyballion and explains it as nothing rest. Everything moves, everything. vibrates. Let me read a little quips quick snippet here is this principle embodies the truth, that nothing rest, everything is in motion and everything vibrates, and explains that matter, energy and even Spirit are simply varying rates of vibration. Hermedesis believe that even thoughts have their own rate of vibration and can be controlled like tuning an instrument to produce various results for the aim of self and environment mastering as your understanding of vibration, frequency harmony and resonance increases, so to show your power over yourself and your world, okay, this is pretty simply physics, meaning nothing is at rest. Everything is in movement, everything vibrates. It's simply a higher frequency or a lower frequency.

For example, I'm not going to do it because it'd be loud for you, but I could tap on my microphone and it's a hard plastic. Well, that's still composed of electrons, neutrons and protons, which are moving at a lower speed than let's say, the, for example, wherever you're listening to me right now, it's electromagnetics. It's you're listening to me maybe through the through thin air through your phone or from iTunes, listening to the podcast, but you're listening through thin air, which is again, electromagnetics, that moves at a higher frequency than a lower frequency, which is the the microphone. So let me make this very simple for you. And a way to apply this is because everything vibrates. There's a concept called sympathetic resonance.

Sympathetic well, let me go let me let me explain this. First. Let me say it's simply everything attracts its own vibration. Consider that everything attracts its own vibration, and whatever you're vibrating, which is in terms of thought, which is the first mental law, whatever you're vibrating is what you attract in your life. You've heard the old phrases before is that love begets love. Hate begets hate. What you're thinking is your vibration and your frequency. And now let's go to sympathetic resonance. And this is a concept where, for example, that you can have two pianos in the same room. And you can strike let's say, the A chord of one piano, and the A string of the other piano, those corresponding to that particular a chord will also be vibrating and resonating, and there but nobody's even touched it. Why? Because when you push the A key on a piano, you know and push it really hard. that sends out sound and everything is sound, which is frequency, and that sends out sound and A chords nearby the A chord of the other piano or resonate with it because it isn't the sympathetic resonance.

Basically, what this means is that you vibrate In a certain frequency and if you're why do you think miserable people attract miserable people and happy people attract happy people and happy thoughts attract happy things and sad thoughts attract sad things. Now you may want to go back to episode number nine and its own money and in that episode I talk about that when because money is energy, its resonance, its frequency, that any thought you have affects your feelings, thought is Fifth Dimension feelings are Sixth dimension. So when you have a thought which is left brain and then you go into the feeling which is right brain, you're literally also shifting dimensions from fifth dimension, the sixth dimension. So we go from thought to feeling to vibration to frequency and whatever your frequency and is, which is physics because your physical body is frequency, and your thoughts are frequency. Whatever your frequency is, is what you attract back to you. This is why In layman's terms, they always say what you're seeking is seeking you. So let's take this to practical application.

Have you ever met someone, and the second you meet them, you're like, I don't know, I just clicked. I mean, I feel like I've known this person for 1,000 years, or you meet someone, and they they seem nice enough. And you're like, there's something about this person, I just don't want to be around this person. There's something that feels off about them. So let me give you a simple takeaway here. What I teach people to do is stop thinking about how you think about something and start checking in with how you feel about something. One of my friends called me one time, and he was gonna he was looking at two condominiums and they were very high end condominiums and he couldn't decide. And he goes, Jim, what do you think I should do? And I said, I want you to stop thinking right now and get out of your analytical mind. I want you to sit down, close your eyes get quiet. And I want you to see how you feel about each condo, there will be your answer. So what he's doing is he's tapping into vibration by getting out of his thinking and going into his feeling. So the question for you is, is how can you apply this in your life? If you want my head the way there's to apply this is again to get out of thinking and to get into feeling how you feel about things and what is the vibration of things that you're feeling? Do you feel good about the vibration? Do you feel bad about the vibration or do you feel neutral?

Okay, the next principle number four, the principle of polarity. Now the Kyballion explains it this way. Everything is dual. Everything has poles everything has its pairs of opposites, like and unlike are the same. opposites are identical in nature, but different and degree extremes meet. All crews are but half proofs. All paradoxes may be reconciled. Now, let me explain here a paragraph. So it's maybe 100 words, but let me read this here. So it explains that there are two poles and everything and the opposites are really only two extremes of the same thing. The difference being only in degree and obvious example being hot and cold, both being temperature varying only and degree, and that there is no clear crossover moment when hot stops becoming hot, and starts becoming cold and vice versa. With no absolutes on either end. The same can be said of light and darkness, hard and soft, big or small, and even love and hate. With love and hate. There's no clear point where one emotion becomes another and when it passes through, like dislike or indifference. All are merely are perception of the degree. And the principle of polarity exists to explain these paradoxes, let me l read one of those sentences again,all are merely our perceptions of the degree.

Now this principle is important to hermeticist because it suggests that we can change the polarity of a degree to a higher or to a lower degree by recognizing that it's all you know, one emotion but we can change the degree of emotion. Now, let me give this to you in simple words, Don Javier was talking to me many years ago and we were talking about anger. And he said to me, very simply, very quickly, change your polarity. And I'm like, what, what do you mean, even though I bred this years earlier, and what he meant was is change the intensity of the of the degree of the emotion, change the intensity of it all. Okay, so keeping it simple anger because so many people experience anger. And honestly, I used to also I'm not an angry person in this day and age. But when I was told to transfute it to polarity, meaning shift the polarity on the scale, it's kind of like back in the 70s and 80s. When you went to the doctor, you sit, you know, you stood on the scale, and they had a little weight that they moved over. And all that kind of stuff to balance it.

And I learned many, many years ago is that my brother in law has always said to me, always, which I've talked about a little earlier, change your vibration, and changing your vibration is changing your polarity, and you have the power to do that. To give you a great example. And a question that I have for you, which I'm going to jump ahead here is, is have you ever been in an argument with someone, maybe your husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, you're in an argument, and then you're like, you're heated and you're angry, and then you resolve the argument and then you go to love or kindness or whatever it is. Notice you're having emotions, but you're having degrees and your opposite polarities.

There was a movie oh, gosh, 10 years ago. And I think it was Steve Carell, I think I don't remember. But he said something in the movie that literally demonstrates us. He said to his wife, that he said, I loved you, even when I hated you. Not consider that I loved you even when I hated you. And it makes perfect sense to me. I mean, I think all of us have experienced that in this day and age, I recognize that if I'm in a negative emotion, I'm in a negative vibration, and I'm in I'm in a negative frequency. And I have to move that I have to move it to love or to peace or to kindness or to well being, which by the way, well being is the highest frequency and vibration you can be in. But through this law, I've learned the law of polarity. It's just simply degrees and I have to ask myself, to what degree do I choose which everything's a choice to what degree do I choose to function with this particular emotion? So the question is, and I think it's pretty simple as How can you apply this to your life?

Okay, number five, the principle of rhythm. everything flows out and in. Everything has its own tides. All things rise and fall, the pendulum swings manifest and everything. The measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left. Rhythm compensates. Okay, let me read a paragraph for you here. Maybe 70 words or so and then I'll break it down to this simple words. When you're in tune with the principle of rhythm and understand that every mental state exists and rhythm always ebbing and flowing. You can learn to use this principle to your advantage by polarizing yourself to the degree you desire. Then through awareness of this principle and how it manifests holding yourself there to keep the pendulum from swinging back backwards to its extreme. Now backwards to its extreme. Earlier I said which is a lie I didn't say it it's in the Kybalion is that the pendulum swings as far to the left as it does to the right. You ever noticed that if you're prone to mood swings, your mood swing will go far left far negative, negative, negative, negative, and then it swings back far right? I'm happy and I'm joyful and Yipee and Yay. It's because the pendulum swings as far to the left as it does the right. And what we want to learn to create is that we're which we'll get to in a little bit later, with the seventh law, where we want to get to in life is a place of balance with our emotions, because again, our emotions come from our thinking and that affects our vibration and our frequency.

So let me take this into simple words based upon the way that it was explained the pendulum to the left pedulum into the right, I explained that, but let me give you let me give you One of my takeaways from this a big one, and it's been a life.How do I say this? It's been very powerful that I've come to know this at a very deep level, is everything has a rhythm. Everything has an ebb. Everything has a flow. Just like your life, you have an early life, you've hopefully an older part of your life, the tides and now the ebb and the flow. But where I'm going with that is the phrase, everything is temporary in life. What goes up, must come down. So think about that in your own life. Everything is temporary, and what goes up must come down. So I asked you at the end of every one of these, how can you use it the way that you can use this is the realization that even your moods for many people, you go to elation and all this kind of stuff, and then you come back down again and recognize when you recognize the polarities, and the ups and downs, then we have better influence over whether or not we're going to the extreme lows or the extreme highs. And those are taxing for a lot of people and energy draining for a lot of people. But when we recognize that now that we know it, we have more influence over the highs and the lows and the ups and downs in our life.

Okay, Principle number six, the principle of cause and effect. And the Kabbalah explains it this way, and it's pretty darn simple. Every cause has its effect. Every effect has its cause. Everything happens according to law chances, but a name for law not recognized. There are many planes of causation but Nothing escapes the law. Let me read a simple paragraph. This principle embodies the fact that there is a cause for every effect and an effect for every cause, meaning that nothing merely happens for no reason, and that there was no such thing. As chance and harmony with the principle of correspondence there are higher planes dominating lower planes. And nothing is escapes the principle of cause and effect. Nothing happens without explanation. Okay simple words, my words, gems words. Everything again is cause and effect. Everything in your life is the effect of some cause. Now, slow down with that everything in your life is the effect of some cause. Newton's third law of motion Sir Isaac Newton, for every action, there's an equal and opposite reaction. Something is causing something because something is pressing upon something. So, so many people run around saying, Oh, I had bad luck. I have bad debts, why can't I get a break? Well go look in the mirror because you're the cause of the air quote, The Bad luck, okay? And it's really important that we be a responsible in our lives and we accept this, that everything in your life is a result of you being the causation for it.

Now, let me give you a huge takeaway here for you. Okay, money. I think most people will stick with me on Monday because I want to tell you about the money workshop that I have coming up and give you more details and a link to register in just a minute. People don't understand money, they have it backwards. People want money, which is the effect not ever stopping to think well, what is the cause of the effect? I'm going to just be candid with you. And I mean, this please hear in my heart, I mean, this humbly. I attract a heck of a lot of money in my life. I don't chase money. I don't count money I used to. And when I would chase it, it would run away from me. What I do my cause is this podcast is perfect example. My cause is this. How many people's lives can I create expansion in how many people's lives can I raise to a higher level how many vibration can I raise to a higher frequency? Because when I do that I create expansion. And this is what I know when I create expansion for people, people will pay me for creating expansion for them. What I do not do, which is what I did many years ago, which is what you guys do, you're like, Hey, come on live Come on universe. I want money, money, money, I need money, I have bills, chop, chop, I got a visa bill, I got a date, I got a car payment, chop, chop, my mortgage is due.

That's focusing on the effect and not the cause. 100% where I keep my attention on my money is not even how much value that I can create and how much service Well, it's partly but it's there's also polarity to that which I talk about in the money workshop. But what I look at is again,what cause and to what degree can I be an extreme and healthy calls in the world so that I reap the benefit of that back to me. Plain and simple, that's cause and effect, the most of you're working backwards, you're wanting the money first, which is the effect without focusing on the cause. You want to bring more abundance in your life, then focus on the cause, not the effect and the effect will happen automatically. So, another takeaway here is this, how can you apply? Have you ever felt that things in your life were just there spinning like, spinning like crazy? There's all kinds of things going on and you're like, why is this happening? Why is that happening? Again, I alluded to it earlier. Go look in the mirror, because you are according to this cosmic law, the principle of cause and effect you are the cause of the effect in your life.

Okay, let's round it out here and then I want to talk to you a little bit about the money workshop that I have coming up that I guarantee you will be a huge cause in your life to help you create significantly Better effects and outcomes in your financial life. But we'll get there in a minute. Okay, the seven cosmic law is a principle of gender. Gender isn't everything, everything has its masculine and feminine principles, gender manifests on all planes. Okay, let me read something here.This principle embodies the fact that both the masculine and the feminine exist in all things, not just in sex but in the creative nature of all things on all planes, and harmony with the principle of correspondence. This means that the masculine and feminine exists not only in the physical plane, but also Well number one, the mental plane and the spiritual as well. The principle of gender plays a role in all things generation creation and regeneration. Nothing can come into being without the use of this principle. So the way that it's broken up in this like to give you an example of this tangibly that everyone will know is the yin and the yang.

It's masculine and feminine. And again, to recapitulate here, it's not about sex. It's about gender and gender energy. And I can read people's energy very quickly and I will see some men like most of my male friends have female energy. Now what I mean by that, even though they're heterosexual, they have female energy, which is very nurturing, very loving, very heart energy. And then you might see a woman for example, that she's like a go getter, she's the one who brings home the bacon. The dad is the one who really enjoys being the dad and the daddy and all that and wants to be a stay at home dad. And the mom is the one that has, you know, let's let's I'm a driving force and I'm a partner, my law firm and all this kind of stuff. Well, even though by gender, she is a female, she is exhibiting masculine energy, and even though he is by gender, a male his exhibiting feminine energy.

Now, masculine energy tends to be more driving and more future oriented. And feminine energy tends to be more present. And in the moment, so what we want to do is we want to create balanced in life between the driving and the future and I have to make this happen and I have to make that happen to being more exhale. Ah, more peace, more centered, more grounded, more balanced. And yes, I have these things to do these things to create. But you know what, I can do it from this moment. And when you're balanced, literally like that's why the yin and the yang is balanced. Think about that. Seriously, consider that as balanced. It's not lopsided. It's not like the Yang is bigger than the yin or the yin is bigger than the Yang. When we get into that place, now we're in a place of balance. And here's the thing. Notice that all the keys above the principles above are all about finding the balance in them. Now this is not in the Kybalion and but if I have to guess which I'm guessing here, this is why this is the last principle because all the other principles are about balance and being in the present, which you've heard me talk about on other episodes, and being at peace. So, you know, I'll ask you how you can use this, but let me give you an example.

Have you ever felt like you're just caught up in a whirlwind? I mean, like the world comes and gets you by the collar and just whisk you away? Well, guess what? That's Yang. That's masculine energy, and you're out of balance with your Yin energy, and you want to balance both both. Okay, so let me recap these in just a minute. But before I do, I mentioned it now for probably a month but on August 11, I'm hosting a workshop at 3pm Central Standard Time. And the workshop is titled How the law of attraction repels the money and abundance you want, and how to become rich. Now, in this workshop, I kid you not. I mean I, literally over the years I spent so many years struggling with money. And I couldn't figure out why I had read every book out there books by Stuart Wilde and Napoleon Hill and think and grow rich and, and Wayne Dyer, and all these books for all these years and Earl Nightingale and the secret of the ages by Robert Collier, which by the way, is an amazing book and the Kybalion and for years prior and I'm like, Jim, why can't you put it together? Why can't you do something simple like put step one and step number two together? I mean, it can't be that hard. Well, it was hard for me for a lot of years and I struggled with money for a lot of years. And as I shared with you a little earlier, I'm not that person. I'm not that identity. I'm not in that place anymore in my life. Money is quite abundant and it flows into my life in abundance and a lot of it.

And when I decided to do this workshop I sat down and literally I'm like Jim, how did you methodically and it's all brain based but how did you get from like being broke and digging in the back of your chain your car for change and, and buying literally a box of macaroni and cheese and tuna, and that's your dinner? How did you go from there to where you are today, which you're literally wealthy? How did that happen? And what I did as I sifted through all this, I put together this workshop I've never delivered it before. I have delivered this content in various ways in different sequences to all of my students. And as you're about to discover, if you watch a short video on the page, I'm going to send you to one of my students, Jake, but he's one of thousands has gone from literally scraping by on 4,000 bucks a month and paying his bills to like 30 something thousand bucks a month. And a matter of six months ago learning this from me. It's very simple, but this workshop I'm going to talk about the six pillars that I've learned over the years. And they are shifting your money, locust of control. Number one, secondly is about identity and how identity plays into your wealth and your poverty. Third is your subconscious brain based habits, fourth, prosperity, consciousness. You can do all the things that you think are going to be the cause of money, and you're going to have the effect, but you don't have the effect because you don't have high prosperity consciousness. Number five is separating your work from your money. Yes, you heard me correctly, separating your work from your money because what most of you do is you make your work your money, and then when your work goes down, your money goes down. Why? Because you have them illusionary and you're honestly tied together. And then number six is self autonomy.

Now you can register for this program, it is not free and it's not free for a reason. It's normally what I would charge for this is $297. The investment is simply going to be $97 with a 100% guarantee, meaning if I don't blow your mind Plain and simple. If I don't blow your mind, then ask for a refund and it will be issued to you within 24 hours. I also want to share with you that I'm this is the first time I mentioned mentioning it on the podcast and this will be mentioned on every single episode of the podcast. And we're something at 1.2 million downloads, which means we have a lot of traffic on this podcast. The reason I tell you that is I have I have a lot of people like, I think 600 people promoting this. Some are smaller promoters. Some are larger. The reason I tell you this is this call is limited to 1000 people. The reason I tell you that is because if you wait to register later, you're going to be locked out. Literally you will be locked down because this will fill up very, very quickly. I wouldn't be surprised if it fills up in the next couple of days.

Anyway to domain name, go to my website, or go to this go to this domain. money, And you're going to find the page here, and you're going to see videos and testimonials. And I'm going to explain more about the program and what it is and all this kind of stuff. But here's the thing. I'm taking 100% of the risk if you literally want to stop living paycheck to paycheck to paycheck, or you're scraping by, or you're struggling, or you're just what I call getting by month to month, or even if you're making money, but you want more. This is not for people scraping by, it's not for people living paycheck to paycheck, and it's not for people making a lot of money. It's for all of these groups, because everyone wants to do better. And as you're going to discover very quickly on this training, I can help you wherever you are, do much, much better financially in your life. Okay, let's recap here very quickly, and then we're going to call it an episode. So the seven cosmic laws from the Kybalion and first cosmic law is the principle of mentalism. The all is mind and the universe is mental. The second principle is the principle of correspondence As above, so below, as within, so without, as without, so, within and by the way that will correspond to the money training on identity.

The next principle is the principle of vibration, nothing rest, everything moves, everything is everything vibrates. Remember I said we go from thought to feeling to vibration to frequency and you attract back the object of your predominant vibrations. Law number four Principle number four the principle of polarity everything is dual everything has poles everything has pairs of opposites, like and unlike are the same opposites are identical in nature but different than degree, extremes meet all truths are but half cruise, all paradoxes may be reconciled, reconciled. On number five, the principle of rhythm. everything flows out and in, everything has its tides and rise and things rise and fall, the pendulum swing manifest and everything. The measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left. Rhythm compensates law number six, the principle of cause and effect. Every cause has its effect. Every effect has its cause. Everything happens according to law chances, but a name for law not recognized. There are many planes of causation but Nothing escapes the law. And then number seven, the principle of gender, gender isn't everything. Everything has its masculine and feminine principles, gender manifest on all planes.

And then finally again, get registered, go to and get registered for the training how the law of attraction repels the money and abundance you want, and how to become rich. I mean, who doesn't want that? Right and even if you don't want to become rich, which which by the way, becoming rich is a very different spiritual thing. See people actually attribute most people erroneously say well, it's about ego know, becoming rich is noble because now you're connected and you're pulling from divine mind and divine mind is infinitely rich. And because you are a part of infinite mind, which we talked about earlier, because you're part of intent and divine mind, you have access to the riches so whatever you do get registered for the money workshop August 11 3pm, Central Standard Time Thank you for being on this episode, and I will catch you over on the next episode.
