The Seven Hermetic Principles

1 - Principle of Mentalism ”The ALL is MIND; the universal is mental.”

2 - Principle of Correspondence “As above, so below; as below, so above.”

3 - Principle of Vibration “Nothing is at rest; everything moves; everything vibrates.”

4 - Principle of Polarity “Everything is dual; everything has polarities; everything has it’s pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled.”

5 - Principle of Rhythm “Everything blows, out and in; everything has it’s tides; all things rise and fall; the pendulum-swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates.”

6 - Principle of Cause & Effect “Every cause has it’s effect; every effect has it’s cause; everything happens according to law; chance is but a name for law not recognized; there are many planes of causation; but nothing escapes the law.”

7 - Principle of Gender “Gender is in everything; everything has it’s masculine and feminine principles; gender manifests on all planes.”
