The Law of Cause and Effect

The paragraph/s below have been taken directly from the SGR program. Make sure you read the “Our comments” section at the bottom for a more detailed explanation.

Whatever you send into the Universe comes back

Action-re-action are equal and opposite. Say good things to everyone; treat everyone with total respect and it will all come back. Never worry about what you are going to get, just concentrate on what you can give.

Every cause has its effect; every effect, its cause. There is no such thing as chance. Everything happens according to law. Nothing in the entire universe ever happens, unless it occurs according to law. Nothing ever escapes the law. It is impossible for the human mind to conceive of starting a new chain of causation, for the simple reason that every effect must have a cause; and in turn, that cause must have an effect. Thus, we have the perpetual, never-ending cycle of cause and effect.

Ralph Waldo Emerson called The Law of Cause and Effect, The Law of Laws. You are, of course, very interested in RESULTS. Your physical health, your relationships, and the respect you earn, your material income. You must concentrate on the CAUSE, and the EFFECT will automatically take care of itself. That is how the Law works.

Outlined below are four affirmations to help you focus on CAUSES:

(Preceded with the words: “I am so happy and grateful now that…”)

I maintain a balanced diet and exercise mentally and physically every day.

I maintain close contact with all of my loving and meaningful relationships.

I treat everyone with the utmost respect. I am a good finder.

I continually think of creative ways to provide better service.


THE LAW OF PSYCHOLOGICAL RECIPROCITY (incorporated within The Law of Cause and Effect) When you put a positive out, you will get a positive back, but rarely right away. When you put a negative out, you will get one back. Rather than be caught by this law, we should use it. When someone gives you a positive, give them one right back. When someone sends you a negative, step aside and let it keep on going.

Our Comments

The way you can use The Law of Cause and Effect to your advantage is expressed really well in the affirmation examples that are given above.

If you work out a way that you can focus on those ‘causes’, i.e. mental/physical health, relationships, respect, income, the effect will be that they will come into being…they will happen. You may want to make up your own affirmations using your own language that suits you better.

Remember also that this law works regardless of what you focus on. If you constantly tell yourself, and believe that “I am hopeless at public speaking”, the effect will of course be exactly that.

Knowing that there is always a cause, followed by an effect, you can use The Law of Cause and Effect in a really wonderful way by concentrating on the causes that you want, and thus having a direct influence on the outcome.

Whatever you send into the Universe comes back.

And hey…give someone a great compliment today – it will eventually come back!
