the law of correspondence

Understanding and Applying The Law of Correspondence.

Most of us have heard the old adage that our outer world is nothing more than a reflection of our inner world – as within, so without, as above, so below.  Well, you may or may not realize this, but what this actually is, is The Law of Correspondence.

This is probably one of the most important Universal Laws we know of.  The Law of Correspondence basically says that our current reality is a mirror of what is going on inside us.  Our reality is a result of our inner most dominant thought.

If our life is filled with unhappiness, chaos or is just straight up unfulfilling,  it is a because that’s how we are on the inside. If we hold negative thoughts internally, then our outer world becomes filled with turmoil and strife.

Here’s the danger in holding negative thoughts.  Ultimately, the negativity becomes a self-perpetuating situation.

What do I mean by “self-perpetuating” ?

Here’s what I mean…

When we start to feel bad on the inside, our perception of the outer world starts to look bad. The worse the outer world becomes, the worse we then feel on the inside.  It’s like when obese people say, “I eat because I’m unhappy and I’m unhappy because I eat.” It all ends up having a direct impact on our reality.

There is only one way to escape this self perpetuating treadmill…SHIFT YOUR PARADIGM

As within so with out, or, as below so above.

paradigm shiftIn order to change our outer world, we must first take a good look in the mirror and change the inner man.

In fact, it’s no secret that the very foundation of ALL Self Help Courses is to ‘change from the inside out!’  You can do everything in your power to change our outer world, but if you don’t change your inner world first, you will continue to experience unhappiness, unrest and un-fulfillment in your life. Your reality will always, always, always reflect your inner beliefs and world.

There is not one case I can think of where our outer world isn’t a reflection of our inner world.  It’s like this in every way, shape, form and aspect of out life.

Let’s kick this up a notch..

If we really want to see change in our outer world, we must first change our inner world – our thoughts, beliefs and attitudes.

If we want less wars, less famine, less violence, less bigotry, less sadness, etc…then we must first start with the man in the mirror.

I think Michael Jackson, (The King of Pop) once said it best when he sang…

“I’m Starting With The Man In
The Mirror
I’m Asking Him To Change
His Ways
And No Message Could Have
Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World
A Better Place
Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change.”

Stated another way, our current situation is a direct result of the way we think. If we want to shift our paradigm, then we must change the way we think!

In a way, this Universal Law is a lot like the law of attraction –  you attract to yourself what you feel on the inside.

There are many, many things in our life that we don’t have complete and total control over, but the one thing we do have total and complete control over is our thinking.

The only way to get what we truly desire in life is to change our thought patterns.

With that being said, changing thought patterns is a difficult task for most people.


…because it’s easier to point fingers and blame others for our misfortunes.

Let’s face it – it is much easier on our egos to blame someone else for what is wrong in our lives, than it is to accept the responsibility!

Here’s What The Kybalion says…

“As above, so below; as below so above.” — The Kybalion.

as above so belowThis Principle embodies the truth that there is always a Correspondence between the laws and phenomena of the various planes of Being and Life.

The old Hermetic axiom ran in these words: “As above, so below; as below, so above.” And the grasping of this Principle gives one the means of solving many a dark paradox, and hidden secret of Nature.

There are planes beyond our knowing, but when we apply the Principle of Correspondence to them we are able to understand much that would otherwise be unknowable to us. This Principle is of universal application and manifestation, on the various planes of the material, mental, and spiritual universe — it is an Universal Law.

The ancient Hermetists considered this Principle as one of the most important mental instruments by which man was able to pry aside the obstacles which hid from view the Unknown. Its use even tore aside the Veil of Isis to the extent that a glimpse of the face of the goddess might be caught.

Just as a knowledge of the Principles of Geometry enables man to measure distant suns and their movements, while seated in his observatory, so a knowledge of the Principle of Correspondence enables Man to reason intelligently from the Known to the Unknown. Studying the monad, he understands the archangel.

 The key to personal happiness, freedom and peace of mind is to change your thoughts! By focusing exclusively on what it is that we truly desire, and by eliminating all thoughts of what we don’t want, we can begin to shape, mould and build our lives to our own specifications!

Here’s what you can do next…

If you want to start building the life you desire, you can do these three things…

  • Take a hard look at yourself – seriously, take a long, hard look.  Look at your career, your relationships, your health and your financial situation. Ok, now let’s say that your financial situation is in dire straights or not exactly where you want it to be, here’s what you need to do…  Ask yourself this questions… “How are my inner thoughts and attitudes causing this situation in my life ?”  

For example, “What are my beliefs about relationships?  …and then ask yourself, “Where did these thoughts come from?”  …and “Why do I think this way?”  “What is the root cause of these thoughts?”  You’ll have to dig deep, but the payoff will be huge and when you are able to finally dissolve these old limiting beliefs.  You’ll start to see your outer world change and reflect your new beliefs of your inner world.

  • The next thing is to do what very few people ever do, “Take full responsibility for whatever is happening in your life.” Most people are more than willing to take responsibility for the good things in their life, but rarely do they want to take responsibility for the bad things in their life.  So in order to break through, you need to take responsibility for both. You can start doing this today.
  • Last, but certainly not least, visualize the world that you truly desire and focus your thoughts on this. To help you out with this, I put together a free video training for you, complete with workbook and all.  Creating The Perfect Life.

If you want to take control of your life and your circumstances then you to need to understand how the Law of Correspondence works and how to apply it in your life.  This blog post should help tremendously.

If you want positive change in your life, look inside first.

The bottom line is, by changing the quality of your thoughts, you will change the quality of your life!

There is no mystery to achieving success – it is available to all of us.

Most people aren’t even aware that Universal Laws exists, so the very fact that you’re even reading this blog post proves that you’re in the top 3% of all people on the globe.  Congratulations!!  You’re well on your way to Mastering Your Life!

My next blog post will be on the Universal Law of Polarity.

In the mean time,

Emitte lucem et veritatem,
