Series: The Hermetic Principles

  • Principle of Vibration

    Principle of Vibration

    Everything vibrates. Nothing is at a complete standstill. Everything has a resonance.

  • Principle of Rhythm

    Principle of Rhythm

    Everything flows in and out, everything has tides. All things rise and fall. The Pendulum swing manifests in everything. The measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left. Rhythm compensates.

  • Principle of Polarity

    Principle of Polarity

    If there’s motion, there has to be position. This is Polarity. Everything is dual. Bad is a lesser degree of good so it’s not its opposite as a separate static state, but rather it’s the same energy at a different polar degree.

  • Principle of Mentalism

    Principle of Mentalism

    This states that all is Mind. Mind is the nature of the All. The universe is mental. Infinite living mind = Spirit. Our material world and what we see is only one aspect.

  • Principle of Gender

    Principle of Gender

    There are masculine and feminine aspects to all things on all planes. Not “male” and “female” per say. Masculine is projective—Feminine is receptive. Together they instigate the creative process. All things are in a process of creating something.

  • Principle of Correspondence

    Principle of Correspondence

    There is always a correspondence between the laws and phenomena of the various planes of being and life. As above, so below.

  • Principle of Cause and Effect

    Principle of Cause and Effect

    Every cause has its effect—every effect has its cause. Nothing has just one cause or one effect. There are many planes of causation and no absolute direct routes as there are continual causes and continual effects existing on many planes and levels. Always, free will is the wild card that can have many effects.

  • The Hermetic Principles

    These are from the writings of Hermes Trismegistus. Some say that all great religions have a few mystical truths at their core, and all religions point to the esoteric tenets of Hermeticism. These religions include, but aren’t limited to Christianity, Buddhism, Zoroastrianism, Judaism, and Islam.
