Law of Mentalism Made Simple

Most people are familiar with the axiom “as above, so below”, which is the Law of Correspondence as written in the Kybalion.  The Kybalion is a collection of 7 universal laws usually accredited to the god of wisdom in Ancient Egypt named Thoth, also called Djehuty.  The first of these laws, as stated in the Kybalion, is the Law of Mentalism.  The Universal Laws are simply the “rules” that the universe abides by.

You see, everything begins with thought.  Nothing is before thought.  In order for anything to exist it must have been conceived in the mind first.  The mind is the bridge between the soul and the human brain.  Let’s look at this on a mundane level to keep the Law of Mentalism simple and practical.

A thought, which is the product of the mind and soul, can be looked at two ways.  We have conscious thoughts and subconscious thoughts.  Conscious thoughts are thoughts and ideas that you are aware of and create rationally and intentionally.  Subconscious thoughts are thoughts that you are not aware of and are seemingly automatic.  Most routine things we do as humans such as brushing teeth, washing clothes, and driving familiar routes are things we seem to do automatically because it doesn’t take much thought or effort and therefore the actions are seem thoughtless.  When we do new or unfamiliar endeavors we must put more thought and effort into them, at first.

Without conscious and subconscious thoughts anything we do or make is not possible.  Your subconscious mind is a product of repetition.  Your conscious mind seeks to identify, label, and justify thoughts and actions.  The subconscious mind is automatic and the conscious mind is current and attentive.  They work hand and hand in the physical reality.

Every invention and natural occurrence in our world was first a thought.  The thought can be looked at as pure energy that gives rise to the physical manifestation of such energy.  That is why modern science will tell you that everything is made up of energy.  Energy, especially at the subatomic level, can not be measured with regular, everyday instruments.  Yet, it still exists.  Similarly, your mind can not be measured with instruments and tools but your brain can.  Your mind is not your brain.  The brain is what your body uses to “channel” in the mind.

Also in the Kybalion we have the Law of Polarity.  This law explains how everything has its apparent opposite.  The polarity of physical, that which you can see and quantify, is spiritual or, that which you can not see with the naked physical eyes.  The mind which is accredited with thought gives rise to everything that we see.  Our reality is the product of our collective consciousness which is the embodiment of all our thoughts thus, all is mind and the universal is mental.

Remember, everything you see and do is either conscious (aware) or subconscious (unaware).  The key is to become more aware of what you were previously unaware of.  This is how we expand our consciousness and become more enlightened.  Consciousness, simply meaning awareness, affords us more choices to make more evolved decisions.  Chance favors the prepared mind!!!!!!
