So I was doing an exercise earlier involving flipping a coin with the aim of making it land on a chosen side, through energy channelling. I noticed that the exercise was harder when I wanted it to land on only the heads side, but it was fairly easy to make the coin alternate between heads and tails. This got me thinking about balance and the role it plays in the world around us.
Now the majority of us don’t believe in the threefold rule or karma ( myself included ), but I think the idea of balance that underpins both of these ideas is a sound one. The problem with these ideas of karma and what ever you cast coming back three fold, is that it oversimplifies the way balance works.
The universe doesn’t care if you’re good or bad, right or wrong, but what it values is the balance of actions. In the same way the coin falls more readily in a consistently alternating pattern of heads and tails, the world around us seeks to balance one action with the opposite. Now this doesn’t mean the direct opposite happening to the person causing the initial change, more that the opposite of the initial action is always reflected in the world in equal measure.
We can apply this style of thinking when considering how and why our magic manifests the way it does. Imagine you cast a wealth spell to increase your income. There are a number of ways I’m which the universe could balance the change you’ve created ie. Manifest the magic you’ve cast.
You’ve pushed the idea of wealth out into the world, so the world pushes wealth back at you. Eg. A lottery win
You’ve raised your income, so someone elses drops eg. You inherent money from a dead relative, shifting their wealth from them to you.
You’ve decided to no longer remain where you are, financially, so someone else must remain in their current position eg. You get the promotion and the other candidate doesn’t.
As you can see, there’s a number of different ways the universe can restore balance. When we begin to think of manifestation of our results as a balancing act, where we place a weight on a scale and the universe has to balance out the other side, we can begin to analyse where our manifestation may come from and adjust our rituals to more effectively aid the balancing process ie. Speed up manifestation speed.
Like I said, I’ve just thought of this, so haven’t had time to test it. What do you lot think?
