The Universal Laws are all inter-related and are founded on the  understanding that everything in the universe is energy, including humans, and that energy moves in a circular fashion. At the microscopic level, we are a whirling mass of electrons and energy atoms spinning rapidly. In fact, everything in the world is comprised of energy and we are intimately connected with this sea of energy, this sea of whirling electrons.

Our thoughts, feelings, words, and actions are all forms of energy. What we think, feel, say, and do in each moment comes back to us to create our reality. Energy moves in a circle, so what goes around comes around–a.k.a Karma. The combined thoughts, feelings, words and actions of everyone on the planet creates our collective consciousness, it creates the world we see before us.

The exciting news is, because our thoughts, feelings, words and actions create the world around us, we have the power to create a world of peace, harmony and abundance. In order to do this, it is essential that we learn to control our thoughts and emotions. Understanding and living the Universals Laws moment to moment helps us to do this.

There isn’t just the Law of Attraction! The Secret made the Law of Attraction well-known, but without learning about all the Universal Laws and mastering those  too you may be left high and dry when it comes to manifesting the life of your dreams.

When you don’t understand and/or live in harmony with the Law of Attraction, Vibration, Polarity, Rhythm, Gender, Cause and Effect, Perpetual Transmutation of Energy, Reciprocity, Mentalism, Correspondence, etc., you will suffer as those laws are not biased and are fixed and they operate despite one’s ignorance.

1 ~ The Law of Divine Oneness

We live in a world where everything and everyone is connected to everything and everyone else.  Every single thing we are doing, saying, thinking and believing effects others around us as well as the universe we are part of.   We are all connected.

2 ~ The Law of Vibration

Everything single thing in our universe moves, vibrates and travels in circular motions.  These very same principles of vibration apply in our physical world through our thoughts, feelings and desires.  Everything has it’s own vibrational frequency from sounds, to things and even our thoughts.  Your vibration will attract like vibrations to you.

3 ~ The Law of Action

To see the Law of Attraction in Action we must take inspired action.  To manifest the things we desire we must engage in actions which support our desires as well as our thoughts, dreams, emotions and words.

4 ~ The Law of Correspondence

As Above, So Below.  Energy, Light, Vibration and Motion all have their corresponding principles.  Everything on the physical plane has a corresponding principle out there in the universe.

5 ~ The Law of Cause & Effect

Nothing ever happens by chance.  We reap what we sow, every action has a reaction and consequence.  What we put out there we get back.  Karma….

6 ~ The Law of Compensation

As for the Law of Cause and Effect what we put out we get back by way of abundance in all area’s.   By helping others and taking positive actions great things will come back into our lives.  We will be compensated for our good deeds, give your heart and soul to everything.

7 ~ The Law of Attraction

What we think about we bring about, our thoughts become things.  All of our thoughts, feelings, words and actions are producing energy which in turn attract like energies and things into our lives.  Negative or Positive like attracts like.    The Law of Attraction is also known as the Law of Love ♥

8  ~ The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy 

Simply put, everyone has the ability within them to transform their life.  We can do this by understanding these universal laws and changing our energy.  It’s up to us to do it! Higher vibrations consume and transform lower ones; thus, each of us can change the energies in our lives by understanding the Universal Laws and applying the principles in such a way as to effect change. More importantly it explains that even thoughts are energy that also transform and manifest in our lives in direct accordance to our mindset & the type of attention we apply to them.

9 ~ The Law of Relativity

Everyone has challenges! We are all given challenges for a reason, opportunities to learn and grow.  These challenges are sent to strengthen our inner light.  The law also wants us to  look at other people’s challenges and problems worse than ours so we can gain perspective.  It’s all relative.

10 ~ The Law of Polarity

Everything has a polar opposite good or bad.   This is the Contrast and Clarity, when you know what you don’t want in turn you know what you do want.  Focus on the Good things you want

11 ~ The Law of Rhythm

Everything moves and vibrates to certain rhythms.  This can be seasons, cycles, stages of our development and patterns happening in the universe.  We need to stay in flow throughout these rhythms of life.

12 ~ The Law of Gender

Yin & Yang.  Everything and everyone has feminine and masculine principles and energies, this is how creation happens in the universe.  We must all find the balance between the two to master our lives.

The 21 Sub-Laws

There are also 21 Sub-Laws which relate to the human characteristics we need to embody in our lives ~

Report – Harvard Study Has Good News for Homeopathic Medicine

by John Weeks, Publisher/Editor of The Integrator Blog News and Reports

The American Journal of Public Health published a survey article out of Harvard that shows that homeopathic medicine, while still only used by a small fraction of the U.S. population, has jumped 15% in use. In addition, most users put homeopathy among the top 3 complementary strategies they use in their health care.

The interest of this journal in this publication is linked to possible public health benefits from the use of homeopathic medicine. The principal investigator was Michelle Dossett, MD, PhD and the team also included placebo expert Ted Kaptchuk, OMD. They hail from Harvard’s School of Public Health and from a Harvard Medical School affiliated hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess. The teams notes that prior studies of homeopathy “suggest potential public health benefits such as reductions in unnecessary antibiotic usage, reductions in costs to treat certain respiratory diseases, improvements in peri-menopausal depression, improved health outcomes in chronically ill individuals, and control of a Leptospirosis epidemic in Cuba.”

The data was gleaned from the 2012 National Health Interview Survey. The researchers explored the prevalence and use patterns of homeopathic medicines among U.S. adults in relation to other complementary and integrative medicine (CIM) use. Versions of this survey in 2002 and 2007 found use of homeopathic medicines at 1.7% and 1.8% of the adult population, respectively. The 15% growth in the recent half-decade corresponds to an overall use rate of 2.1% in 2012. The most common conditions for which people sought homeopathic treatment were respiratory and ear-nose-and-throat complaints as well as musculoskeletal pain syndromes. Users tended to be more educated than non-users.

Use of homeopathy in the US is lower than in many European countries. The authors note, for instance, that surveys have found rates at 8.2% in Italy and nearly 15% in Germany. A recent Italian wire-service story reported findings of a 2012 survey by a homeopathic manufacturer that found much higher use, at close to one-in-six adult Italians.

The Harvard team reported that positive views of homeopathy were much higher among those who saw a professional homeopath compared to those who simply purchased the pills from the store and self-prescribed. Those who consulted professionals were more likely to feel that homeopathy was “very important in maintaining health and well-being.” The sense of the importance of the remedies was also stronger. More of those who’d consulted a homeopathic practitioner thought that homeopathy helped their health condition “a great deal” than did the self-prescribers.

Naysayers, who believe these medicine are nothing more than placebos, will likely question the additional perceived value post practitioner visit. Is it anything more than the greater level of investment in a placebo one has if the placebo is practitioner-recommended rather than self-prescribed?

The article came to The Integrator from homeopath and author Dana Ullman, MPH, CCH (pictured). He sent notice of the Harvard publication and of the recent report on Italian use with this note: “Here’s some GOOD news about homeopathy!”

Ullman adds: “This survey confirms that a certain well-educated and well-satisfied group of Americans benefit from self-prescribing homeopathic medicines as well as from going to professional homeopaths. Although these numbers are much higher in select countries in Europe, it is more than reasonable to support individual choice in health care. Just as our country is a melting pot of different cultures and races, our health and medical care likewise needs this healthy diversity.”

Homeopathy has taken it on the chin the last two years. The Harvard study was published amidst a renewed flare up of bad publicity following a controversial 2015 report from the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council. The chair of the report, general practitioner Paul Glasziou, MD blogged on the controversial findings at the British Medical Journal. A wave of postings from anti-homeopathy writers, such as this, immediately followed.

Weighing the public health potential of homeopathic medicine requires a wading into a river of twin ambiguities. These can each be true simultaneously: 1) homeopathic treatment only has value as a placebo, and 2) expanded use of these medicines can be useful tools in the public health campaign against antibiotic overuse. This 2008 study, for instance, found that 13% of doctors use antibiotics as placebos. Mightn’t we have been better off, from a population health perspective, had they prescribed homeopathic remedies and not delivered this extra load of antibiotics onto the terrain?

French researchers spoke to this potential last year when they concluded that “management of patients by homeopathic GPs may be less expensive from a global perspective and may represent an important interest to public health.” The Harvard researchers included a similar note: “Because of potential public health benefits associated with the use of homeopathy, further research on this modality and targeted studies of users are warranted.”

Perhaps the way to move forward is to allow skeptical doctors to deliver homeopathic medicine to their patients while announcing to them that it is a placebo. Kaptchuk and others have reported that the placebos can still work. If they have more significant positive value, well, that healing can take place without the skeptic’s approval.

Have you wondered if hypnosis, a.k.a. hypnotherapy might be right for you?

Have you read books, taken workshops, had psychic readings, counseling, psychotherapy, taken prescriptions and OTC drugs etc. and still struggle? You might have emotional blocks preventing you from moving into your happiness and desires. These blocks include, but are not limited to, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, OCD, Bipolar, phobias, social anxiety, post-traumatic stress (PTSD), addiction–food, substances, etc.

Working With a Hypnosis Practitioner Is a Common and Empowering Choice to Create Changes.

Millions of peoples’ lives have been improved using this effective tool of the mind. Whether it’s someone you personally know or celebrities such as Ellen DeGeneres, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, sports players, Olympic contenders, and the list goes on, hypnosis sessions are an empowering, healing, and transformational  process.

Achieving a trance state is a natural ability of the mind, and a hypnosis practitioner is a person who has learned the skills to direct you into a trance state necessary to complete your goals and guide you through a healing process to affect positive changes.
Still, not all hypnosis practitioners are created equal. A hypnotic trance state is completely safe when practiced and performed by a Certified and experienced professional.

As you know finding the best practitioner is critical. The answers to the following questions will determine the level of expertise and if she/he is the best practitioner for your needs.

When you ask these questions, you will be insuring the success of your sessions, and you will experience the positive changes you desire.

1.) Is the Hypnosis Professional trained for a minimum of 100 initial educational hours and certified?

A well-trained and experienced hypnosis practitioner will be Certified by one of the three prominent certifying organizations, The National Guild of Hypnotists (NGH), The National Board for Certified Clinical Hypnotherapists (NBCCH), and The American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH). An active member in-good-standing will provide you with a copy of her/his up-to-date annual certificate if you desire and it will be displayed prominently in his/her office.

For the best results, accept no substitutes.

Many hypnosis practitioners get their initial training (some as few as 12 hours) and stop learning. Highly regarded hypnosis practitioners obtain 100 initial hours of training and attend national conventions to obtain specialty certificates of completion on a regular basis to guarantee you the most effective, modern process. Evidence of continuing education is significant.

2.) What Experience Do you Have Working With ___Issue? 

Ask for details about their experiences resolving the issue you are struggling with. Ask for success stories, and ask for failures too. Find out why the treatment didn’t work for some people could give you a clue about whether or not the practitioner is qualified to work with your particular issue or need.

Highly skilled practitioners take a thorough history regarding childhood, education, significant relationships, career/work. Last, but not least, she/he allows you to interject what you believe is important to achieve your goal(s).

3.)  What is Your Process?

Ask the therapist to describe exactly what a session is like, and how exactly she/he will address your needs.  Many therapists will ask follow up questions to this question such as asking you what your specific goals are.  If the therapist doesn’t ask any follow up questions after you ask this question that is a red flag that the therapist might not be experienced enough to treat your issue(s).

A leading question such as this one gives you the chance to judge how well the practitioner will take the reins and direct the progress of your work. If the therapist seems flustered or doesn’t know how to respond to the question it’s safe to assume that if your process doesn’t go along the same lines as one-size-fits all modality, she/he might not know what to do. You deserve a practitioner, who will design a process specific and unique to your needs.

A challenging question like this one is a great way to throw a curved ball to see how she/he handles the unexpected. As you know when you’re working on any mental/emotional issue at any point a curved ball could come up, so you need to know if the practitioner is capable of smoothly dealing with the unexpected.

4.) Does the hypnosis practitioner perform individual sessions face-to-face, via webcam or phone?

The experienced hypnosis practitioner knows that the most effective method is a one-on-one session versus a group session of dozens or hundreds. It’s true, some people have temporary success with a recorded or group session, but the success rate is short-lived. However, individual face-to-face, webcam or phone sessions are exponentially more effective when the process is custom-designed to your needs.

Be cautious of the practitioner who invites you to their office and only has you listen to a CD with headphones. Why bother when you could have done that at home?

5.) How many sessions are required? 

Don’t be suspicious if the practitioner tells you that you might only need one session, because it’s quite possible that hypnosis will create the desired result for mild issues or addictions in one session.  But, if the practitioner states it will definitely only take one session that is a red flag.  No practitioner can definitely say for sure how many sessions you will need without an in depth discussion about your history and what you desire to achieve.  An experienced practitioner will  be able to give you an estimate of how many sessions it will take, but be wary of any practitioner, who tells you exact number of sessions. No matter, the issue you are unique and your process to resolve an issue is unique. One-size doesn’t fit all.

It’s important to understand that the number of sessions needed is an estimate, so avoid being locked into an exact number of sessions when you think about budgeting or payments.  There is no way to know for sure when the hypnosis will begin to work or when your issue(s) will be resolved. A lot of factors, such as how receptive you are to the hypnosis process, will impact the number of sessions needed to see the results that you desire.

6.) What is the Practitioners Success Rate?

Keep in mind that no practitioner has 100% success rate. But you are entitled to ask overall how many people she/he either resolved their issue or taught them how to manage effectively. For example Fibromyalgia, Lupus pain or other chronic pain might have an unexpected flare up during a stressful experience. Then, the person has one of two options, using the skills to work through it on their own, or calling for a quick tuneup.  After all, what you are ultimately after are results so what are his/her typical results?

You can ask for referrals. Some practitioners have a list of people who have agreed to allow their as a reference, but if the therapist that you’re talking to doesn’t have such a list it doesn’t mean that he/she has no satisfied clients.  Client confidentiality is very important, especially for people with trauma based issues.

Practitioners often have written testimonials on their website. Ask him/her if testimonials are available.

7.) Does the practitioner offer a Free Confidential Consultation?

The choice to work with a hypnosis practitioner needs to be made with confidence; for that reason, highly effective hypnosis practitioners offer a Free 15 or 20-Minute Free Confidential Phone or webcam Consultation.

During the consultation, she/he will ask about your goals and give you a brief overview of a custom-designed process for your success. You will learn about hypnosis and become comfortable with the hypnosis process. She/he will answer any questions you may have.

8.) Does the practitioner teach strategies, such as Self-hypnosis to manage flare-ups, Communication skills, Assertiveness to manage life?

This is a very important question to ask if you are interested to improve you life on a deep level. Because the practitioner has his/her own unique treatment method based on his/her education and experience if you want to use self-hypnosis in conjunction with your healing process it will be more effective if you use the hypnosis style and tools in order to hypnotize yourself as well as learning effective life skills.

The goal of healing vis-a-vis hypnosis is to create an empowered healthy person. If the therapist seems more focused on how long he or she can keep you in treatment instead of creating empowerment and healthy functioning you need to know what your desires are and if she/he is willing and/or capable of assisting you to achieve it.  As you know there are some unscrupulous hypnosis practitioner as all other professionals, who are in it more for the money than their for the person’s success.  In the procession, it is called churn and burn. You don’t want to let anyone take advantage of your desire to become healthy.

9.)  Does the Practitioner assign Homework?

Homework might be readings about the particular issue you seek to resolve, or it could consist of self-hypnosis sessions that will help you relax and reinforce the new patterns that are presented in the treatment sessions, or it could consist of other activities designed to make the process more effective, more quickly.

If the practitioner tells you that he/she assigns homework and describes the type of activities that fits the person needs that tells you that the practitioner has your priorities in mind. By giving homework that fits your needs is preparing you to take over your healing process. Using self-hypnosis and other exercises are something that you can do on your own in the future after you have stopped formal sessions to make sure that you stay on track and to make sure that you avoid dragging the original issue back into your life.

Not all practitioners believe in assigning homework and a practitioner that doesn’t isn’t necessarily ineffective, but if it comes down to picking a practitioner who gives homework and one who doesn’t you will be time and money ahead if you pick the one who assigns homework specifically for your needs. Assigning homework is a strong indication she/he will work along with as a partner from the start to make you independent and not dependent on a long-term therapy process.

10.) If you find her/his profile is deficient in any of these areas, it is a red flag she/he is poorly trained, and there may be cause for concern.

The answers to these questions will help you select a highly trained practitioner. You will be more relaxed knowing you are obtaining the services of a well-educated and experienced professional.

What’s the next step? Use highly specific keywords to do an Internet search. Certified Hypnotherapist and the issue you wish to resolve. Such as: Depression, Certified Hypnotherapist.
