Natural Law: The Seven Hermetic Principles
The general principles of Natural Law are based on the teachings of Hermes Trismegistus otherwise known as Egyptian God Thoth. He was the messenger of the Gods who brought their teachings down to Earth.
There are seven basic underlying principles plus the binding principle which binds the other seven together. All eight together are the Master Key through which universal wisdom is de-occulted and no longer hidden.
They are Hermetically sealed because they are immutable and cannot be changed.
1. The Principle of Mentalism
All is a manifestation of mind. The Universe is mental: our thoughts manifest things and events in our reality.
Thoughts create our state of existence and the quality of our experience here on Earth.
Thoughts drive our behaviour so be responsible for your thoughts and, therefore, everything you create for yourself.
The ALL is substantial reality underlying outward appearances.
This law explains psychic phenomena.
The Master Key unlocks doors in the psychic temple of knowledge and the path to mastery.
Energy, power, and matter are subordinate to mind.
2. The Principle of Correspondence
‘As above so, below: as below, so above.’
Correspondence between the planes of the material, mental, and spiritual universe.
The Universal Law of the holographic universe whereby the microcosm comprises the whole.
A way to move the obstacles to the unknown.
Known to unknown.
3. The Principle of Vibration
Nothing rests: the universe is pure vibrational energy.
Everything vibrates in vibratory motion.
Matter is energy in vibration.
We should be in control of our own mental vibrations and those of others with the formula.
4. The Principle of Polarity
Everything is dual with two poles.
Opposites are identical in nature but different in degree.
Extremes meet in the middle.
Heat and cold are varying degrees of the same thing; a change in vibration.
Paradoxs of light and dark, soft and hard.
On the mental plane: degrees of love and hate.
Change the vibrations of hate to the vibrations of love in your mind.
Good an evil require us the to take the middle path.
Mental Alchemy is transmuting love to hate using the principle of polarity.
5. The Principle of Rhythm
Tides rise and fall.
The pendulum swings in motion to and fro, equally on both sides.
Action and reaction.
The rise and fall of nations.
Hermeticists can overcome its effects by formulas and methods.
The Mental Law of Neutralisation enables us to escape its effects by neutralising the rhythmic swing through strong will.
6. The Principle of Cause & Effect
Every cause has an effect and every effect has its cause.
There are many planes of causation and no such thing as chance.
Manifested realities form due to their causes. That which has already occurred.
Humanity is trapped on the plane of effects with self-inflicted suffering.
Rise above cause and effect by mentally rising to a higher plane to become causers and effects.
The masses are obedient to the environment and the wills and desires of others’ suggestion.
Pawns on a chessboard.
Rule on ones own plane and be masters.
7. The Principle of Gender
Gender is manifested in everything throughout the Physical, Mental, and Spiritual planes.
In the physical it is expressed as sex.
On the mental plane it is the masculine and feminine aspects of the mind.
Right side of the brain: Feminine, Intuition, Compassion, Creativity.
Left side of the brain: Male, Intellect, Logic, Analytical.
The human brain has been hacked with mind control by the system to prefer one side of the brain.
When both are in balance the true intelligence is born.
Work on yourself to find equilibrium between the right and left hemispheres to how yourself and natural law.
No creation is possible without it because everything contains two elements.
8. The Lost Principle
Binds the others together.
These principles can also be found in the Kybalion and are summarised in Mark Passio’s talk on Natural law: to to around the 3 hour mark on this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChgCh2Gui5M
