Some call it the science of physics. Some operate with these ideas as being part of the metaphysical and spiritual realm and aim to achieve a higher conciseness. It is where science and the supernatural meet in the middle because regardless of the “why” they usually agree on the results. These are the basic laws of the universe.

One of those laws is the Laws of Polarity. The basic definition of polarity is diametrical opposition. The Law of Polarity states that all things under the Universal Laws has its own polar opposite. Yin/yang, is just one good example.

Everything in the universe has its opposite. You have a right and left side to your body, a front and back. Every up has a down and every down has an up. The law of Polarity not only states that everything has an opposite . .it is equal and opposite. Within every failure there is potential for success.

Everything in life has an equal opposite. It is up to us as to what side of this pole to experience. Yes, let me repeat that another way. I actually would say it is up to us to challenge and then decide for ourselves what side of this pole we will CHOOSE to experience. You can CHOOSE which side of the pole you want to experience life.

Without one we would not have the other. If we did not experience sadness we would not know enough to experience joy. Without pain we would not have pleasure. These polarities or polar opposites all work together for the greater good. We need only to understand this and appreciate this fact. Mastering The Law of Polarity is necessary in achieving the sense of harmony, fulfillment and wellbeing that you were born to experience in your life. A life experience absent of the Law of Polarity would deny you the ability to have this wonderfully, fulfilled life.

The Law of Polarity was created and exists as a means to enable each of us to explore and experience life to the fullest. As an example - if what you perceive as bad did not exist, would you know when you were having a good experience? If poverty did not exist would you know what it was like to experience wealth? If failure did not exist would you know what it was to experience success? If there existed no such thing as death, we could not fully enjoy and appreciate what it means to experience life.

We can suppress and transform undesirable thoughts by concentrating on the opposite pole. It is the law of mental vibrations.

We live in a world of duality. However, these opposites have no absolutes, there is not one point where you can say one starts and the other begins, it is a scale range. There are two poles or opposites; the difference between the two extremes of one thing is called polarity. There are degrees of difference between the extremes or poles, no absolutes. This laws states that, in fact, these opposites are simply different manifestations of the same thing! Napoleon Hill, author of the classic Think and Grow Rich, wrote "Every adversity, every failure and every heartache carries with it the seed of an equivalent or a greater benefit."

There is no good or bad, big or small. (My intuition tells me that some of you are still resisting this. Go back and read it again in a few days.) Law of Polarity is saying that these things are the same just on opposite sides of the spectrum.

It is all in how we perceive them. So in essence, everything you are experiencing can be put into the perspective – What is the lesson and what is a positive take away I can embrace? Mastery of the Law of Polarity requires learning how to maintain balance, focus, and detachment from the distractions of the material world.

The Law of Polarity contains a full spectrum of possibility ranging from the extremely light to the extremely dark and any number of points in between. By developing this understanding and learning to fully accept and surrender to whatever may show up in your life in the way of events, conditions and circumstances and learning to understand that ALL THINGS, regardless of how perceived, work together for good, you will have made incredible progress in your given ability to mold, shape, and achieve a quality of life that you consciously desire to experience. The Law of Polarity exists as a means for you to learn that within every perceived problem lies its solution.

You do have a choice to experience whichever end of the spectrum of polarity that you choose to experience. If you are experiencing what you perceive as unpleasant circumstances, you only need change what is causing those circumstances within yourself.

Take a look at the chart below and have a conversation with yourself. Do you see the possibilities if you change your perspective? Will you change your perspective? Can YOU change your perspective?

The good news is that through discovery and correct implementation you can learn to harmonize your thoughts, beliefs and actions with it which will provide you a life of Fulfillment, Joy, Profound Inner Peace and Limitless Prosperity in each and every area of your life.

What we choose to refer to as Abundance and Happiness.

I deeply believe in universal principles running our personal and professional lives. I also believe that, in order to run your life or business effectively and with peace of mind, you need to have some basic knowledge about these universal principles.

An Example of the Law of Polarity in Action

This is from my own life: My husband left me and he left me for a man. I was the mother of two small children and we were also business partners together. He served me with divorce papers and an injunction to not be able to do business under our joint business name on my birthday. He took every dime out of our bank account and left the state. I had literally one dime in my purse. Yes, he had cleaned out my wallet as well.

It took me a while to see the positives…….. a very long while. But there were many. Here are a few:

 I learned that my children come first, no matter what and consequently, I was an excellent mother, even in times of crisis.

 I was very good at business and had an excellent business reputation and was able to build a bigger and better business due to this, along with my creativity. My confidence has never wavered since this time.

 I learned who my friends were and they still are, years later.

 I learned my mother really did love me and she was someone who I could count on as a mother and a friend.

 I learned compassion, even for people who were hurting me and I learned what boundaries look like to protect myself while still feeling that compassion.

And actually, the list goes on and on.

Would I have chosen this experience for myself? Of course not!! I am very grateful for the lessons and the growth as a person it afforded me. The first lesson was, my attitude made all the difference in the world. At first, I was too busy surviving to feel sorry for myself. When things started to slow down and I could take a deep breath, I found I didn’t WANT to feel bad or sad or mad. And that I really liked myself and my life a lot!!!

So……how bad was the divorce and ruined business, really? The initial circumstance was horrible but the benefits were immeasurable!!!

Try it in your own life, whether personally or professionally. Keep in mind that for everything “bad” there must be something “good”, and find it!

Remember, Swami Beyondananda has the following definition for succeeding: “finding the seed in what sucks!”

OR I like to say, everything is a lesson…. And how I choose to demonstrate life, sometimes lets me be the lesson for others.

Activity
List THREE experiences that you consider negative or even traumatic and then list for each experience something positive that you gained or achieved because of that experience. (Simple example: I was widowed at a young age. If I had not been widowed, I would have not taken over my husband’s business and learned all the things I did, that lead me into a career that I had for 27 years. I learned about the justice system, I learned how to turn grief into a passion and I learned the importance of living life daily as it was short and could be shorter than I expected.
