- The Principle of Mentalism:
- “The all is MIND, The Universe is Mental.”
This means be careful what you think because you get back what you think about. If you say “I’m not good at cooking” then you never will be. If you say “I’m going to fail this exam” then you will fail that exam. If you say “I am an artist” then you will do things to be that artist.
- The Principle of Vibration:
- “Nothing rest, everything moves, everything vibrates.”
This means that all of matter is vibrating at the molecular level. The reason you see color is because it is vibrating at a certain frequency.
- The Principle of Correspondence:
- “As above, so below, as below, so above. As within, so without, as without so within.”
This means that space and matter are connected, instead of being separate entities that they are one. You cannot have a figure without a non-figure. You cannot see matter without non-matter.
- The Principle of Polarity:
- “Everything is Dual and has poles or opposites, opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree.”
This means that on Earth there is duality which means everything has it’s opposing factor. EVERYTHING…..hot/cold, up/down, in/out, good/bad, love/hate, ugly/beautiful. This is important to understand because you can not have one without the other. Knowing how to apply this to your life you have to understand the next principle in detail.
- The Principle of Rhythm:
- “Everything flows, out and in, everything has its tides, all things rise and fall, the pendulum-swing.”
This means that what ever swings from the left in one way also swings to the right in that same way. Explained easily you can have boiling hot water or freezing cold water. The hotter our summers get the colder our winters get. The greater the evil in the world the greater the enlightenment in our world. The more attention a subject gets in a negative way from the media, the more attention it will get in that positive way as well. Not many can understand this.
- The Principle of Cause and Effect:
- “Every cause has its effect, every effect has its cause, everything happens according to law.”
This means that even though you may think you are just one person and can not create a ripple effect, you can. Everything you do effects another human being in one way or another.
- The Principle of Gender:
- “Gender is in everything, everything has its masculine and feminine principles.”
This means that even though our sex is female or male, we have both the energetic bodies of these “sexes” in us. To have balance you must accept yourself and know you were born into your gender at this time for a reason. Honestly, as a child I struggled with this because being a female I felt more male inside. My energy was more masculine. As I aged I accepted myself and embraced my femininity and blossomed with balance.
Now, this is amazing stuff. Isaac Newton placed great faith in these concepts. He wrote about the Corpus Hermeticism often and wrote that his writing was transmitted from ancient times in which secrets of the start and forces of nature were revealed. This religion is parallel with early Christianity. I thought it was very interesting to see how our Christian beliefs systems have took some twist and turns over the years.
As above, so below is the Principle of Correspondence which means exactly what our trees can teach us… as above, so below. That which is above corresponds to that which is below to accomplish the miracle of ONENESS. Whatever happens on any level of reality (physical, emotional, mental) happens also on every other level.
Does this get you thinking? Does this cause you to question what you believe and why you believe it? It should so; yes it does but what about all that you have been taught up to this point? Is your programming taking over in your thought process yet? I know for me, having this knowledge feels like I’ve hit GOLD. What is gold? Gold is precious metal!!!!
Turning lead into gold is the alchemist way from within so without. Who would not want to know or understand these principles and apply it to your life? Get control of your own ideas, know that you are a co-creator with infinite intelligence.
So, what is hermeticism?
Short answer: Hermeticism is an ancient (before Christianity) spiritual, philosophical, and magical tradition. It is known as a path of spiritual growth. Hermeticism takes its name from the God “Hermês Trismegistos” (Greek, “Thrice-Greatest Hermes”), a Græco-Egyptian form of the great Egyptian God of Wisdom and Magic, Thôth. Seeing the word magic does not mean “magic” like we understand it though, basically it means what you create…..Yes you are a co-creator.
