Understanding Universal Laws


The 7 A's: Simple Concepts to Help You Use the Universal Laws Effectively

by Christin Sander

Below are 7 key principles – each of which start with the letter A. A is the first letter – and you are the first priority so it's fitting. The number 7 interestingly enough is the number that focuses on self-awareness and spiritual connection – it is the number of the seeker.

What you do to bring light and strength into the world affects the whole. A is for “all” as well, so use these simple principles to help you encompass and effectively use all of the universal laws as a cohesive whole.

In my previous hub “The Twelve Universal Laws Explained in a Nutshell” I covered the various universal laws that all work together to allow you to manifest your goals. It goes beyond merely the “law of attraction” because LOA has a direct link to all of the other laws, making them one unit with many working parts that are all dependent on each other. Think of your body - the brain, heart, lungs are all what give you life – not one or the other. They all work together and all exist because of each other.

The principles outlined below are designed to help you remember in short order how to apply all of the universal laws to your daily life. They will help you to more quickly and efficiently start changing your life for the better. I know the universal laws have done wonders in my life and I love to share them and hopefully make them easier for others to remember and apply.

If you are not aware of the 12 universal laws I suggest checking out the hub I mentioned previously and then coming back here to follow up. See the links.


We tend to be creatures of avoidance and habit which can quickly lead us into a rut and cause us to miss out on a lot of potential in life. As we proceed on autopilot, we lose awareness of our surroundings, we drown out our inner voice in the daily “humdrum”. Meditation every day, a deliberate quieting of the mind, even if only for a few minutes, can help train your mind/body/spirit to focus again together as a cohesive unit.

Total awareness is the first step in learning to truly tap into the power of the Universe. Awareness allows us to connect fully with the “here and now” - we can quickly analyze what it is we are feeling and adjust accordingly.

Awareness is the key to a full and abundant life, if you are not able to be fully aware of what you are doing, thinking, and feeling and understand it, you will not be able to consciously manifest effectively. The rub is you are always manifesting – whether you are aware of it or not! Your ability to be aware determines your ability to control what you create.


It can be hard to accept things that are not to our liking. We grow impatient with others and feel a desire to control our circumstances outwardly. We direct our energy towards what we see as a “problem” - and fight that issue – rather than accepting it and changing our focus onto what we do want.

What we resist persists and the most effective method for solving problems is to stop thinking about them so much! Does this mean we put our head in the sand like an Ostrich and ignore the world around us? No. It means we consciously choose to accept that all things have a reason and a season and then we can better focus our energy in positive, meaningful ways. Universal law states that everything has an opposite, all things come full circle. You can't have anything without it's opposite polarity. Simply put you cannot eliminate evil by railing against it – you have to turn your energy towards the light and manifest what you do want.

Acceptance allows us to be “pro” rather than “anti”. Remember what we focus on manifests. Focus on what you want to see and develop – not resisting what is or trying to push back against what you don't want to see.

This ties into the law of gender – when you plant a seed it requires time, space, and nurturing to grow. Often we become impatient with the manifesting process. Our desire for instant gratification is typically steeped in fear – fear we won't get what we want, fear of being powerless, fear of whatever else you can come up with. Impatience and anxiety are guideposts that tell us straight away we are not facilitating the manifesting process.

We must allow the universe to deliver our wishes in the way and time that is for our highest good. When we push back or resist we create more of what we don't want and may actually push away new opportunities etc. We must allow the universe to decide how to deliver what we need.

Money is a good example here. People focus on manifesting “money” but money is an illusion – the paper itself truly has no value. What most people truly want are the underlying things they feel money will provide them – peace of mind, freedom, stability etc. When manifesting money or sustenance we need to not focus on “bills” or bank accounts – but focus on feeling free, secure, etc. Abundance comes to those who practice feeling abundant – not to those focusing on “want” or “need” or a specific money target.

You can cut up old magazines and have piles of worthless paper in your hands ;) - remember the money itself is not truly what you are after – focus on what you want that you feel money can provide and then open up and “allow” the universe to deliver this abundance to you in the way that will best serve your highest good. If you get too caught up in what you hope to see – you resist the opportunities and new potential that are trying to manifest for you.


Appreciation doesn't mean simply being grateful for what you see as good in your life, it means opening up to embrace all of life. Look at every aspect and facet of it and be in awe of it. Love the experiences and appreciate the beauty in all things and people – even what you don't understand or cannot fully comprehend.

The universe is so vast that none of us can wrap our minds around it. We cannot always understand the larger reason or purpose behind many things that happen. That is why they say hindsight is 20/20 – we often can't appreciate an experience fully until we have had it. Experience is why you are here – it is what gives your life purpose and meaning.

Don't only embrace what you see see as good or “right” – embrace all of life and all of life will reach out and hug you back :). Life is beautiful – stop every day to take a moment or two to really, fully appreciate everything you have experienced and what it has shown you and taught you. Reach out and embrace it on a deeply spiritual level – with an open mind and heart. It isn't enough to simply say “thanks” - although that is a good start. You have to really, at the depths of your inner being, appreciate your life and your blessings, but also what you don't know. When you do this the universe opens up to you and you open up to living a life beyond limits.


Our emotions are a gauge into our thoughts and where we are directing our energy. When we don't feel good we know that it is time to adjust our perspective and refocus our thinking. This can be done in a variety of ways – from focusing on the opposite end of a spectrum (if you're feeling blue – watch a funny movie and laugh) to consciously choosing to redirect our energies. Instead of getting angry – focus on problem solving or solutions.

Adjusting is something we need to do regularly to ensure we stay on the right path. The blessing with adjustments is that we have the power to adjust as often as necessary, to find what works for us – or doesn't, and adjust accordingly. More people resonate with the word “adjust” than “change” ;) - because change tends to frighten and make people feel out of control. Adjust implies that you choose your direction – which is more acceptable to most.

Often a simple shift is all that is needed to remedy a challenging situation. Adjust accordingly.


In school you were often told that in order to make good grades you would need to “apply yourself” - in other words you have to take an active interest and make an effort. The universal laws are no different – if you want to fully benefit from them you have to learn to apply them. It requires effort (but not struggle) and dedication.

You can't try it once or twice and then just decide it doesn't work because you didn't get what you wanted when you wanted it. Universal laws are there and they are working – despite what you do. As with anything you get out of it what you put in. If you apply yourself towards practicing these principles your life and circumstances will adjust accordingly.

If you make no effort at all to apply them they will still work in your life and you will likely manifest things that are not to your liking or will allow yourself to become overpowered by others and outer circumstances as opposed to controlling your own destiny.


You have to be willing to actually attain the goal. Well DUH isn't that the point? I can almost hear people saying, but often we resist reaching our goals despite wanting them with all our heart.

It seems odd, but many times the very thing we want we also fear having, so we keep pushing it away or we move away from it without finishing what we started. For example, I love to write. I know I was a born writer and even before I could put actual words on the paper I would pretend to write and then read my stories back to my grandparents. They used to buy me tablets that I would fill. Despite knowing that I was pretty much born to write and that it makes me joyful to put words on paper – there is still a small part of me that has fears in place.

My long-range goal is to have a book published. The idea of it is thrilling and I feel very energized by that goal, but once I reach it then what? I have to do it again, or face the fact that I reached my goal and now I have to put my attention elsewhere. Those reservations have allowed me to get right to the brink of my goal a few times now – and not quite over the full hurdle. I know I have to address my reservations and remove them before I can fully manifest that goal.

Sometimes our desire to attract something is more alluring to us than actually acquiring the target. We've all heard the phrase “the thrill of the chase”. It applies here as well. You have to actually be willing to attain, to own, the goal you are after without reservation.

Many people recognize fear of failure as being a hindrance, without acknowledging the fear of success.

So there you have it – the “7 A's” that will help you understand and use the universal laws effectively. Learn more about the universal laws and how they affect your life by visiting my Universal Laws Explained blog via the links section.

      Christin, I always learn so much from your hubs on this topic - or should I say, I am reminded of what I learned previously. There was a time when I read a lot about metaphysics, practiced meditation, was aware of the universal laws and so on. All of that definitely influenced my life in a positive way.

      There is a lot more I could say but my thoughts aren't organized enough to come out in any coherent way so I'll just leave it at that. Looking forward to reading more on this subject.
