By now, everyone has heard of the book The Secret by Rhonda Byrne thanks to Oprah’s book list in 2006 but what most people don’t know is that the secret has a secret.
Although the Law of Attraction was well presented in this work, most people don’t realize that the Law of Attraction is just one of nine cosmic laws brought forth in ancient Egypt (circa 3,000 – 6,000 B.C. depending on your source) by an Egyptian deity known as Thoth or Tehuti. This mysterious figure is know in later Greek tradition as Hermes Trismegistus and is credited in the Egyptian tradition as the source of all knowledge, Mathematics, Alchemy, Astronomy and Medicine but perhaps the most pervasive accreditation given to this figure are the nine cosmic laws which govern our physical and mental universe:
I. Mentalism – All is mind; the universe is Mental.
II. Correspondence – As above, so below; as below, so above.
III. Vibration – Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.
IV. Polarity – Everything is Dual; everything has two poles; everything has a pair of opposites.
V. Rhythm – Everything flows out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall.
VI. Cause and Effect – Every cause has its effect; every effect has its cause.
VII. Gender – Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine principle.
Added from the Nine Axioms of Tehuti
VIII. Growth and Creation – Every living thing has a creation and grows over time; every living thing grows
IX. Breathing – Every living thing appears to breath in and out to survive; an acknowledgement of according to its creation; the breath is spirit
Encapsulated in these nine principles are the seeds of understanding not only how to attract what we want but also how to use these interweaving principles to manifest any desired change in our physical reality. Furthermore, as divine beings (created through divine processes), humans are the physical embodiment of these nine principles. From the vibration atoms that comprise all matter to the manifestation of duality as male and female, these unbreakable truths govern every aspect of our existence including what we attract to our individual experience.
