It’s helpful to become aware of the fundamental laws that govern our Universe, as we build our spiritual foundation. And unlike societal laws, Divine Laws are never broken. Even if you don’t believe in them, these Cosmic Laws still apply to you and to every other form of energy, from a single atom to a giant blue whale.
I would consider them the starter pack to Spirituality – the things that we’ve known all along at a soul level but have forgotten due to the ‘amnesia‘ of our human life. Let’s take a look at these laws now, shall we?
#1 – The Divine Law of Free Will
While we can’t control what’s happening outside of us, we have free reign to decide what internal state we would like to be in as we respond to life’s ups and downs.
So instead of us saying that someone or something “made me feel” angry, we can take our power back and reorient ourselves by realizing that they triggered or activated the anger/sadness/frustration that was already inside of us.
Another example of this divine law is that we can NOT use the law of attraction to attract a specific person into our love life. And as much as it can break our heart and make us angry towards God for not fulfilling our heart’s desires, the divine law of free will reminds us to respect personal choices. In other words, we’re not the only ones with free will!
The Divine Law of Free Will also reminds us that our way of thinking or behaving is our choice, and may not be the only way to do things. It opens up our appreciation for different ways of living (live and let live) and invites us to be less in our heads, judging others for their choices.
That said, this law is also known as the Law of Inspired Action because it states that our decisions are not outside this universe, nor are we independent from the greater consciousness. Our free-willed decisions are also inspired by our intuition, guidance from soul guides, and previous karmic debts. We are constantly tapping in and out of God’s plan!
#2 – The Divine Law of Cause and Effect
This is probably the most misunderstood of all the divine laws. Karma is simply restoring balance for ALL things, bringing everything to full cycle. So any good that’s in your life, is also karma.
Karma is NOT always the bad guy.
Your well-being, finances, relationships, and friends that share good food and music, all are a reward for good karma. So I encourage all of us to move beyond being scared of it, because you will always get what you deserve – the good and the bad, both. It is the law of completion and a reminder that nothing in life is permanent!

#3 – The Law of Divine Compensation
You’re not wrong to expect something in return for what you do for others. And you might wonder why despite all the good you do for someone, it doesn’t come back from them. Where’d all the good Karma go now, eh?
Remember free will?
Well, that person is executing their free will in treating you with less love. That’s not your fault. However, through the law of divine compensation, the Universe will always bring that love to you, through a different means.
If you let go, you will quickly notice someone much more loving taking his or her place. This isn’t just about romantic relations, it’s true for everything – you will find someone else playing the role of a better sister, brother, best friend, mother, or father if you can stop being stuck on the one who’s failing.
By holding onto unhealthy relationships, we become our greatest enemy because we are the ones holding ourselves back from the Universe delivering what we so desire (and deserve).
If that sounds like a struggle you’re dealing with, take a minute to understand how to stop loving too much.
And this isn’t limited to love. It is also applicable to opportunities, resources, and rewards. You can’t be jinxed out of your good karma, and you can’t be deprived of what you truly deserve.
Sure, somebody might try to harm you in the short-term, for their own benefit, but you will be given what you deserve. At your end, just stay open to receiving!
#4 – The Divine Law of Grace
As humans, we are way too hard on ourselves.
And for some reason, we believe that God is that way too. We get worried about punishment, or worse, going to hell. Before I expand further on this law, I want to take two minutes to clarify this whole ideology of going to hell, to begin with. I hope you enjoy this short video practically exploring the concept of heaven and hell.
Yes, we all have karmic debts to pay for our past doings. But it doesn’t mean that the Creator will indefinitely punish us. I have experienced countless examples of “miracles”, and I continue to see others share this sentiment: The Universe truly does have your back. Are you ready to let the light of divine grace in through the cracks and ease the pain in this darkness?
And think of it – the Creator isn’t just sitting in a temple to be worshipped or offered sweet treats to. Rather, she (or he) is everywhere and in everything, always listening to you. Omnipresent. Fully aware of everything going on around you, and within you. Even before you are aware of your own needs.
So don’t hesitate to tap into that all-knowing, all-pervasive divine being, and ask for grace.
#5 – The Divine Law of Oneness
There is only ‘one God’, an Ultimate Creator.
Krishna, Buddha, Allah, Shiva, or Christ are not Gods, in the sense that we’ve made them to be. They too are souls, just like us.
They are, however, Enlightened souls that became messengers of the Universe, spreading the message of Love and Peace in dire times when the world was losing sight of its direction.
Respecting such Enlightened souls is great. Following scriptures that talk of their Divine Messages is fine too. And through prayer, you are simply seeking their support in your life. But no ‘God’ is better than the other.
They are not meant to be idolized and merely kept at an altar. Rather their truths are meant to be embodied so that WE can be the very Gods we worship.
Going further into this law, it teaches us to embrace duality and practice tolerance, by remembering that we are all connected as a collective consciousness.
Everyone is simply following their own Spiritual path, and invoking any ‘God’ is simply tapping into their unique strengths. We are all a part of the Universe, and thus there is only One of us actually here. The Ultimate Creator and we are Him/Her existing.
If you’re really willing to open your mind, start praying to ALL of them. Having an entire team working with you increases your chances of gliding smoothly through life exponentially! This brings me to the next point.
#6 – The Law of Divine Intervention
No one is keeping score up there, for how well we managed to face our life’s hurdles all by our glorious selves.
This law reminds us that there’s no need to struggle unnecessarily, there’s no need to reinvent the wheel. There are no brownie points for suffering more. That’s all there’s to it folks. Pray all you want – nobody’s judging you!
I have written tons of stories and examples, examining the different ways in which the law of divine intervention works in our life. Let the Universe create for you, by learning to surrender and invite the change you typically resist.
#7 – The Law of Correspondence
Or, as the saying goes, as above, so below.
You are capable of becoming just as Enlightened and powerful as the God you worship. You actually, eventually will be, FYI. That’s the whole purpose of this journey and the point of talking about these divine laws.
I can’t make as convincing a case in a few hundred words, as a book could. So if you’re looking for a mind-blowing, compelling argument, Conversations with God is the book that will challenge your belief system about this.
#8 – The Divine Law of Absolution
A major responsibility we have in life is to respond to external events with acceptance, faith, and grace. We need to start asking ourselves, what is the underlying lesson in this, and approach it with learning, instead of resistance. Or what I like to call moving out of the “victim mindset“.
Everything is absolute and will come to completion in due course of time. No sooner, no later.
In other words, if you’re not meant to die – you will survive that accident even if everyone else does not.
If you’re not meant to reach somewhere, you will notice indefinite hardships that eventually stop you from getting there.
These are extreme but important examples of divine laws in action because some events in our destiny are planned for us, to challenge our learning. Instead of denying or getting furious, it is better to quickly move into learning the lesson and growing your spiritual strength!
#9 – The Divine Law of Infinite Possibilities
There are people who come to work every day and crib about how awful it is. But, are we doing something about it?
The same goes for relationships – you give excuses in the name of ‘no choice’ to stay in unhealthy relations. And then, you mourn how poorly you’re being treated. It is true for everything in life.
Anything you can crib about is capable of being swapped for something better. It’s available, but the question is – how badly do you want it?
The Universe does not want us to be unhappy and the divine laws remind us that this is all really the ego-mind sabotaging us!
Fear is making us too scared to explore, and too afraid to step outside our comfort zone. And so you see, you’re the one that’s settling for less than the best.
The Universe always has our back. We are the ones that need to make a choice to want more, to want a shift that holds room for this Divinity to be a daily part of our life.
We are the ones that need to step outside the limiting beliefs of our logical, conditioned minds. So, if you ever think of what’s possible for you, let this law remind you, that everything is. You don’t need to focus on the how, just that if you believe in it, it can be true for you.
#10 – The Divine Law of Guidance
There is no such thing as coincidences.
Have you ever experienced this, where you kept seeing, hearing, and reading something from various sources? Where psychology will dial it down and call it Confirmation Bias, the Universe does not believe in coincidences.
Pay attention when the Universe speaks to you. If you’re looking for signs – stop ignoring them when they do happen to you! Angel Numbers, feathers, dreams, and intuitive hits often become a huge part of these synchronicities we see.
Here are all the different signs of divine guidance, and how you can pay attention to their underlying messages.
Note: I’m not talking about social media websites drawing in ads for things you browse. That’s not the Universe, that’s just a lot of creepy AI.
All that being said, if you asked me where you should start in your spiritual journey, I’d say start from here. Allow yourself to put these divine laws to test for you.
And take note of how they manifest in your spiritual journey. The more you are able to work with them, the more grounded you will become in your spiritual faith. And the more you will experience the soul, finally, be able to identify and heal the ego-mind.
Happy healing, dear one!
