Hello hello my friends,
Welcome back to the Modern Manifestation blog! Feel free to tune into today's topic in the podcast.
I get a lot of questions about the spiritual laws of manifestation, or the 12 Universal Laws. This isn’t surprising considering there aren’t a lot of great resources out there for this info (Trust me, I looked…)!
In fact, I didn't even know there WERE laws until a year or two into this whole manifestation concept… and I'm sure (I hope) I'm not alone!
For the next several weeks, I am going to cover each of the spiritual laws in this blog and on my podcast (link below). But first, let’s lay some groundwork...
While I use the term “law” throughout this and future posts, take it lightly! I don’t love that they’re called “laws” because they’re not “all or nothing”, “right vs wrong”. These concepts are really more like guidelines…. and spiritual or not, you’re probably living by many of these ideas already.
And, despite my research, I couldn’t figure out where these laws came from (agh!). The most robust answer I found was: all of these laws have shown up in some capacity in every major religion… Aka they’re probably ancient.
While this answer doesn’t completely satisfy my “need to know”, I recognize that a part of operating in this world means I have to have faith and trust in my intuition. So, with trust we go...
The Law of Divine Oneness
The Law of Divine Oneness states that we are all interconnected through our creation by a Creator. In other words, whatever spiritual being or cosmic order created me, also created you using the same material.
When I think about this law, I think about the fact that we all are made from essentially stardust (literally). To summarize the Smithsonian documentary, “We Are All Stardust” (linked below), we are all made up of the same elements produced by particles in the Big Bang, or the creation of the universe. Whether you believe this was divinely orchestrated is up to you, but I choose to believe a Source Energy was behind this.
In other words, we are all parts of the same whole, pieces of the same puzzle, made of the same substance. The particles within me are the same as the particles within you. Or, if you’re spiritual, “the divine within me recognizes the divine within you”. This continuity of creation is also our connection to one another.
We are all created from the same single cosmic boom. We all have the same essence, the basis for life, flowing within us; our molecules and atoms constantly interacting with one another.
Fun fact: When we touch something, we’re actually experiencing our electrons repelling from other electrons (of the other object or person). We're not ACTUALLY touching anything….. ever. Our atoms are communicating with other atoms that signal “touch” to our brains. This interaction happens at a cellular level every single day. Article linked below if you want to learn more about this…
Are we really separate beings? Or different iterations and expressions of the same particles and elements?
Said differently, and more spiritually, we are all created by the same essence of source (Spirit, God, Goddess, Universe, Jesus, Mohammed, etc.). We are all embodiments of this infinite source energy. We are source energy individually and our collective consciousness as a species is what creates the experiences that shape our physical world.
Ever heard of expressions such as, "love thy neighbor", "what goes around comes around", "treat others how you want to be treated", "karma", "3-fold rule", etc.? These ideas and expressions originate from the concept of Divine Oneness, or the Law of Divine Oneness.
As a society, we have unintentionally starved ourselves of connection to one another, and to our divine oneness as a result. While technology, drive-ins, remote work, etc. have made our lives easier, we’ve also lost a sense of community.
As we strive to rebuild our human connections to one another, this desire for oneness has created many of the buzz words we hear today—synergy, collaboration, interconnection, unity, etc. Divine Oneness is already a popular concept that, for better or worse, has been used to create nations, corporations, and political movements. This interconnection of source energy is all around us, all of the time.
A great example of this law at work is the: "Effects of Group Practice of the Transcendental Meditation Program on Preventing Violent Crime in Washington D.C.: Results of the National Demonstration Project, June-July 1993".
This was a study conducted by Social Indicators Research to test the impact of meditation on a city with a history of violent crime.
They selected Washington D.C. and sent 4,000 participants to the city for the sole purpose of practicing Transcendental Meditation (TM) every day. The
researchers hypothesized that the meditators, after accounting for their pro-rata share of the total population increase, would have a 25% net positive impact on the rate of violent crime.
To the shock of the police deputy and many others, there WAS an overall decrease in violent crimes. The maximum weekly decrease over the month-long study was 23.3%, with an overall decrease of about 15.6%. And yes, this data was compared to the same timeframe a decade prior as well as in the months leading up to the study.
In other words, the meditative participants created a substantial positive effect on crime in D.C. For more info, there is a link to the JSTOR article below that you can reference!
And like any decent hypothesis would, this effect has been studied and repeated hundreds of times with similar results using different barometers like health, happiness, crime, poverty, etc.
What we can learn about the Law of Divine Oneness from the study above is that we are more powerful than we know. If enough of us chose to do so, we could impact the world. We could create more peace, heal rainforests, end cancer, and so much more.
When we spread love and connection in the world, the world is a kinder place.
Have you ever felt heavy or sad, angry, upset and you couldn't understand why? Sometimes, you need to look at what is happening around us. The Law of Divine Oneness means that our interconnectedness causes us to pick up on the energy of things happening outside of us on a macro AND micro level.
As an example, I felt exhausted all year and it took me awhile to realize that my external environment (COVID, politics, gun laws, abortion rights, religious freedoms, etc.) was draining my energy. When I realized that these external forces were causing my internal feelings, I was able to make a conscious change to protect my energy.
We can choose how susceptible we are to the external energy we experience as a result of Divine Oneness. We can choose to let it go of the negativity around us and flood ourselves with love and healing through meditations.
Using this law, I've leaned into group classes like Breathwork and yoga as a mechanism for healing because I know most people there also want to spread love and healing. By the Law of Divine Oneness, every person with positive intentions on these classes will be share that intention with me, and I will return the same to them.
Now that you understand this law, you're probably like, "Ok, cool Bre, but what do I do with this information?". Great question!
How to Use the Law of Divine Oneness to Manifest What You Want
Using this idea of interconnectedness, we can create ripple effects throughout our lives by focusing on how we feel and how we conduct ourselves in this life. In other words, to manifest the things you want, you have to trigger the avalanche of positive outcomes.
You can start this ripple effect by vibrating differently; changing your frequency. If you're a long-time follower of mine, you're likely already doing this by learning and healing through meditation, trauma recovery, overcoming perfectionism, becoming more compassionate, etc. You likely already know what raises your energy, so do that. Don't over complicate this.
Create change where it's needed, embrace what is working, and set a positive intention. As Wayne Dyer says, "do what feels good".
If you still need some inspiration, design an experiment for yourself to fine tune your unique needs and build self-trust in the process.
Design an Experiment to See What Works for You
Consider trying a study, like the DC study, on your own life. Create variables and setup your own experiment. Maybe you meditate on sending love every day. Maybe you visualize success every day. Maybe you focus on someone who needs support and send them positive light every day. Maybe you focus on repairing a relationship or healing your body. Have fun with this! Design an experiment for yourself and define your metrics.
Instead of considering this as a leap of faith, prove the concept of manifestation to yourself so that you no longer doubt. After all, knowing something versus believing something are two very different things. These laws are intended to help you understand manifestation at a deeper level, to believe at a deeper level, so that you can create the life you want without fear of being proven wrong. So, go out there and create the evidence you need to believe, and to achieve.
I used to be a skeptic of manifestation, and sometimes I still am even though I talk about it all the time! When I get to this place, I create micro-experiments for myself. This brings me back to a place of knowing and acceptance, this allows me to let go of control. This level of knowing is what keeps resistance at bay.
Thank y'all so much for hanging out with me today! Have a fantastic rest of your week, and I will catch y'all next Monday. Until then, go out there and manifest some miracles.
