The Law of Cause and Effect (Karma) – Summarized

“Everything abides by the law of cause and effect” – Open Your Mind, Open Your Life

The law of cause and effect, also known as Karma, says the energy you give out through your thoughts, words, and actions will ultimately come back to you in one form another. This is because, at the most basic level, everything is made up of the same connected energy. Although we are individual beings, we are still connected to this universal source of energy. So whatever we do to someone else, we are ultimately doing to ourselves.

This universal energy, that makes up everything in our existence, moves in a circular nature, which means that it returns back to itself. This what the saying, “What goes around comes around” means. Whatever you give others you will eventually get back yourself. It’s like a karmic boomerang. So, as you can see, it is in your own best interest to be loving, honest, and compassionate to others because your actions in that moment (and every moment) are creating your future.

The law of cause and effect is just one of the universal laws that teach us how to manage our own energy to be happier, healthier, more successful, and able to attract any future we desire.

The Universal Laws

1.  The Law of Oneness.  Everything in our existence is made up of vibrating energy.

2.  The Law of Vibration.  Each thing in life has its own unique vibrational frequency.

3.  The Law of Attraction.  Energy attracts like-type energy. Positive energy attracts more positive energy.  Negative Energy attracts more negative energy.

4.  The Law of Action.  When opportunities arise action is often needed to help desires manifest.

5.  The Law of Cause and Effect.  Energy is circular; whatever thoughts, words and actions you choose for yourself and others will eventually come back to you to create your future reality.

6.  The Law of Compensation.  Whatever type of energy you give out, through your thoughts, words, and actions, comes back to you ten times stronger.

7.  The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy.  Positive energy will always transmute (transform) negative energy into positive energy or the negative energy will be forced away.

8.  The Law of Relativity.  Your reality of anything depends on your point of view.

9.  The Law of Polarity.  Everything has two poles or opposites.  There are many points of reference along the continuum from one polar opposite to the other.  These points are instrumental in making small manageable changes to move from one place or emotion to another.

10. The Law of Rhythm.  Everything has its own rhythm or cycle.  Rhythm is needed to keep and restore balance.

11. The Law of Gender.  Everything has an opposite.  The opposites are needed so that either side can be truly known and appreciated.

12. The Law of Correspondence.  Because everything is connected, all of the laws correspond to each other.

Here is the introduction section in my new book, Awaken Your Power!


What if I told you that you could create your reality with your mind? I am not talking about making your dreams a reality through only hard work and action, but you also have the ability to actually affect the chance, coincidence, or lucky events that happen in your life by the way you think. Yes, you can create luck. Luck is defined as a force that brings good fortune or adversity. This force that brings good fortune or adversity is within your control. This book will show you how to master this force and how to use it to create the life you want to live. You were meant to use your mind to influence the reality you experience.

What if I also told you that you already are creating with your mind and always have been? That’s right—you have been creating your own reality all your life and probably didn’t know it. It is time for humanity to begin consciously using this amazing power to take responsibility for creating their own reality. This book will teach you all the skills you need to be able to do that.

This book also teaches about the universal laws that apply to us all, whether we believe in them or not, and how we can learn to use them to our advantage to create the life we desire. Anything is possible with the universal laws. If you want to be rich, successful, healthy, happy, or find the love of your life, it can all happen by learning to master these laws in your life.

Not knowing these laws is like trying to play a game without knowing the rules or how they affect us. The truth is that we are playing a game, the game of life, and it is time again for us to relearn how to work with these laws to positively influence our own lives and the lives of those around us.

What if we could prevent or heal any illness? Anything is possible when we learn to use these laws to our advantage. Most of us don’t realize that we have the ability to influence the future events that happen in our lives. The truth is that through our thoughts, words, and actions, we can—and do—influence our own lives every day, usually without knowing it.

Although many are attracted to this wisdom now, there are others who are not yet ready for this empowering information. Regardless of when it is needed, the wisdom of this book sits waiting now and forever for anyone who is attracted to it.
