4 Law of Correspondence
The saying "As above, so below; as below, so above." expresses the essence of the principle of Correspondence. This law explains that there is a harmony, agreement, and correspondence between various planes of the universe. And since everything in the universe comes from one source, the same laws, principles, and characteristics apply to everything.
Correspondence establishes the interconnectedness between all things in the universe and keeps all things relative to each other. It also allows to foresee the character of phenomena and things, which aren't yet known. But the correspondence is found in certain broader sense and no analogy is absolutely the same in detail. There can be noticed constant similarity, but no two elements are identical. In the universal creation everything is unique.
How the Law of Correspondence shows in life
Everywhere in universe you can find the same patterns - from the smallest electron to the largest star. You can notice them in the construction of human bodies, in the structure of minerals, plants, animals and in the geometry of hurricanes and galaxies. They are known since ancient times and are also used consciously by humans in various cultures in architecture, art, design, technology, etc. Some of these principles are known by names like the Golden Ratio, Fibonacci sequence, fractal geometry or sacred geometry.
Let's look at some examples for an illustration of the principle. Everywhere in nature we find the sphere. The form is often noticed in fruits and berries. And all kinds of other phenomena are manifested in this form: be it a soap bubble, planet Earth, other planets or the sun.
Another example: All vibrations emanate from a source point in every direction in waves, shaping constantly increasing spheres. If you drop a stone in the water, it causes spherical vibratory waves, which are seen as increasingly enlarging circles on the water. The same principle works with all other vibrations - sound waves, light, magnetic waves and phenomena of subtler planes like thoughts.
As within, so without
This law expresses itself not only in "outer" phenomena, but also in your inner world. (The subtle planes of thoughts, emotions, etc.) Your outer life is a reflection of your inner life. "As within, so without." There is a direct correspondence between your thoughts, emotions, feelings and the way you experience the external world. All events, circumstances, people in your life are actually manifestations of your inner world. The thoughts, beliefs and emotions, feelings we hold in our conscious and subconscious minds manifest their likenesses in our external circumstances. Our outer world is a mirror of our inner world. The mirror of the Universe is absolutely honest and accurate: it shows even your deepest secrets and unconscious beliefs and feelings. Every single person and situation in your life is a mirror of an aspect of yourself, positive or negative.
Applying the law of Correspondence in life
You experience the world the way you do because of who you are, not because of how it is. Everything what you see, hear, feel and experience is a mirror of your thoughts, emotions, beliefs and feelings - you see in the world what you carry in your heart and mind.
When you understand this, you can take responsibility about your life and to fully accept, what you are creating without resistance or negative emotions. There are no coincidences, everything happens by reason and every person you meet and every situation you find yourself in shows something necessary to you. It can be a positive or negative aspect of you. If it is a positive experience, it means you are in harmony with yourself and in flow with the universe. If there happens something negative, the reason of it is to show to you some unconscious, hidden and often painful or undeveloped aspects of you, which need to be changed for your own good.
Life is always righteous and everything happens for your good, although you may not see it. It can be hard to understand and accept various negative experiences life brings to you. It may happen that you choose to see yourself as a victim controlled by other people and circumstances. Maybe you see somebody or something as only negative and bad, but in the front of the Absolute everybody is equal - the saint and the sinner, since everyone has a perfect role in the greater unity and spiritual evolution of humanity.
If you realize this, you can release resistance, judgement and various negative emotions and thoughts, when you experience something negative. You can let go fear of negative situations and the attitude of victimhood, when you understand that the universe organizes everything in your life for your highest good and spiritual development.
So if you meet challenges and negative experiences, you can ask yourself some questions to discover the reasons of the happenings and the life lessons it brings to you: 1) Why did I attract this situation? 2) What kind of thoughts, emotions and beliefs did this situation mirror to me? 3) What should I learn from this situation? 4) What should I change in myself and my life?
When you take time for contemplation and listening to your heart, you can find out the reasons for various situations and persons appearing in your life. Then you can clear and release negative thoughts, emotions and beliefs to invite positive changes in your life. Exactly the work in the inner world - with your thoughts, emotions, beliefs (conscious and unconscious) allows to change something on the "outside". When you change the invisible, the visible will follow.
