The Universal Laws of Energy and Change: Part 2

The Universal Laws of Energy and Change: Part 2 by Jan Engels-Smith

Last time, we covered the first 2 Universal Laws of Energy and Change:

  1. Energy follows intention.
  2. Whatever you add energy to multiplies.

Here are the explanations for the final 2 Laws:

3. Thought followed by word and action equals form.

Universal Laws of Energy

 

This law is an extension of the previous law—whatever you add energy to multiplies. However, this law is about the amount of energy present in a given situation. There is a significant variation in energy from one circumstance to another. Thoughts function initially at a low frequency. When we attach spoken or written words to thoughts, we increase their energy frequency. Speaking and writing add additional form to thoughts. What may have been a random thought assumes more explicit form. In other words, intention is more clearly defined and given form. You may have noticed that when you explain something to others, it becomes much clearer to yourself. This is because your random thoughts become organized and take the form of statement. This takes energy, which is then stored in the words. Words as speech and script are powerful. They become like contracts with the universe,and should be taken seriously.

Taking action or putting energy into motion is the follow through for what is thought or said. Intention manifests into action and co-creates. In other words, thought followed by words and action equal form. This equation can be applied to something as minor as baking a cake or to a major endeavor such as building a house. Everything ever invented began with a thought, which was then put into words, and then translated into action, which resulted in the invention materializing, or taking form. After the thought, words, and action followed, something materialized. The process of enlightenment, or becoming spiritually connected, follows the same pattern. You have the thought that becoming more aware is what you would like for yourself. You speak of this to others, and you take action by reading books, listening to teachers, journeying to spirit, etc. The end result is a changed you, a new form.

4. What you believe—becomes.

The writer Anais Nin wrote, “We do not see things as they are, we see things as we are.” Not only are you a reflection of your thoughts, but also the world you see around you is created by your thoughts. There is an ancient Chinese proverb that states, “When you have a cart and a horse you have three things—a cart, a horse, and a cart and horse.” The interdependence and integration of all things results in the whole being greater than the sum of the parts. To understand the parts is not to fully understand the whole for the whole is much more. Belief systems consist of individual thoughts and attitudes, but they also are more than the sum of these. Conflict and contradiction in our thoughts creates a dysfunctional whole. Clarity comes as the mind, spirit, and body achieve an alignment.

Underlying every thought, every word, and every deed is your belief system. What do you really believe about life, about yourself, about God? Belief systems are complex. They are your core, fundamental to your entire being. Belief systems will directly influence every facet of your life. Do you really know what you believe or how you came to believe it? Most people are not aware of how they obtained their belief systems. Many are handed down from parents, schools, churches, cultures, societies, and other environments.

Part of becoming awake and aware is to discover what you believe. Belief systems make you think, say, feel, and behave in certain ways. If you work backwards from your behaviors, you will always find a core belief that controls your behavior. But belief systems are choices, and they can be changed. You need to determine if your beliefs are supporting or blocking your healing and growth. One person can change a belief, and in turn change the world. As Ghandi said, “We must be the change we want to see in the world.” In order to do this, you need to explore your belief systems in great detail, get to the root of their existence, and then decide what changes you want to make.

Scientific Laws and Universal Laws

Playing Both Ends to the Middle: Scientific Laws and Universal Laws by Jan Engels-Smith

People who have spiritual power have learned how to work with energy. Working with energy requires an understanding of both scientific laws and universal laws. Scientific laws change as science progresses. There were once laws that supported the beliefs that the earth was flat, was the center of the universe, and that light only travels in a straight line. These laws held true until science advanced to discover other possibilities, at which time new scientific laws emerged. Scientific proof supports a set of beliefs until a new scientific model redefines reality. Many scientific truths have passed into myth, which only exists from the vantage of hindsight; it was only truth in the context of the time that spawned it.

If history is an accurate predictor of our future, then we must assume that the current scientific truths will eventually become myth as new truths emerge. How confident of our scientific truths can or should we be? The American dramatist Arthur Miller observed, “An era can be said to be at an end when its basic illusions are exhausted.” Our mental models of reality may never be more than “illusions” that we, as a culture, have commonly agreed upon. The models have the feel of truth because they are widely shared. They create our current paradigm.

A paradigm is a constellation of concepts, values, perceptions, and practices shared by a community. That constellation forms the basis for how a community defines and organizes itself. Scientific paradigms, widely accepted by advanced societies, have become the basis of defining reality for our world community. Primitive societies that may not share scientific worldviews are often targets of programs intended to convert them to higher truths. At times, however, we have discovered that the primitive paradigms were, in fact, accurate. A good example is recent medical discoveries that validate the potency of traditional medicines and the role of mind-body-spirit connection in the healing process. Once considered to be of the realm of witch doctors, these are now receiving serious attention from the scientific community.

Our beliefs — even our scientific knowledge — color our observations and perceptions. We look for evidence to corroborate what we know; we find the evidence because that is what we are predisposed to see. Consequently, we continually reinforce as true that which we already know. This is done at a subconscious level, but it is how paradigms govern our lives. Breaking out of these paradigms is difficult, and it takes strong character to go against such compelling and accepted societal norms. History is full of accounts of people being persecuted and, in some instances, killed because they supported new discoveries in science. Hindsight being 20/20, two hundred years later it is easy to say, “How could they have believed something so ridiculous?” What will be said of our beliefs two centuries from now?

In truth, all things are possible and people are limited only by their own imaginations! That is exactly why the spirits are forever asking us to broaden our perspectives.
