The Principle of Cause & Effect

The Principle of Cause and Effect

“Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause; everything happens according to law; Chance is but a name for Law not recognised; there are many Planes of causation, but nothing escapes the Law.” – The Kybalion.

Do you believe that your current reality is the result of your own thoughts and actions?

Have you taken radical accountability for your life?

Or do you allow the world to push you around like a feather in the wind?

If you are unaware of the Principle of Cause and Effect, you are probably the Effect of your environment.

Rather than the Cause.

You allow the wills and desires of others to dictate where your life goes.

And I don’t say that lightly…

It doesn’t feel good knowing that your life has been in someone else’s hands.

I have been there myself.

But when you take a step back it is easy to understand why.

The system we are a part of has been designed specifically to make you do as you are told.


You have free will.

You have the power of Choice.

You are creating your reality in every single moment.

But if you are unaware of your power…

How can you perceive the idea of becoming Player One in the game of life?

What is Cause and Effect?

“For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction” – Newton’s Third Law.

There is no Effect without a Cause.

No Cause without an Effect.

All paths have an original first step.

A chain reaction of events follows that first step and ripples out in all directions.

And you can choose what that ripple looks like…

Because as a human being, you have the superpower of choice.

The choice of what to say.

The choice of what to think.

The choice of what to do.

Your choices ripple out into the aether of space and time.

They affect the reality around you.

You are creating your reality in every single moment through your choices.

Absolutely nothing happens by Chance.

And everyone intrinsically knows that the decisions they make will lead to a certain outcome.

It’s why so many people are stuck in the paralysis of analysis.

They never make a decision due to the fear of the outcome.

It is the fear of failure.

The fear of the unknown.

So they believe that they are leaving it up to Chance by not taking action.

However, not taking action is in itself, a choice.

A Cause with an Effect.

“Chance is but a name for Law not recognised.”


The most common events that people use as an example of Chance are a coin flip or the roll of a dice.

Yet when you take a moment to examine the possible causes…

You will find many factors that contribute to the outcome. 

Let’s look at rolling a set of dice.

The position of the dice in your hand.

The muscular power used.

The technique of the throw.

The level of friction that the dice come into contact with.

These are all causes that will contribute to the number that the dice present.

Are these factors difficult to control?

Of course.

However, they are all still factors that lead to the end result.

If you look at your life as a whole…

There have been countless decisions made either by yourself or the people around you that have led you to this exact point in your life.

One thought.

One feeling.

One action.

Can completely change the trajectory of your life.

The trouble is, that those thoughts, feelings, and actions most commonly occur unconsciously.

It is your job to become conscious of what you are actively making happen in your life.

It is your job to become the Cause, rather than the Effect.

Examples of Cause and Effect

If you discipline a dog, he will follow your commands.

If you water your plants, they will grow.

If you meditate, you will understand yourself and become more aware.

If you lift heavy weights, you will become stronger and your muscles will grow.

If you practice speaking, you will become a better speaker.

If you think positive thoughts, you will live in a positive reality.


If you do not discipline yourself, you will develop impulsive and addictive behaviour.

If you eat junk food and avoid exercise, you will become overweight and unhealthy.

If you smoke 30 cigarettes a day, you will ruin your lungs and your overall health.

If you avoid your problems, they will grow until they hit you like a tonne of bricks.

If you avoid social situations, your social anxiety will skyrocket.

If you think negative thoughts, you will experience a negative reality.

Every Effect has its Cause.

Every Cause has its Effect.

Nothing happens by Chance.

You get to decide what Effect you experience.

And if you take an honest look at your life…

You will realise that the life you live today is the Effect of your previous thoughts and actions.

How Do I Become The Cause?

Awareness is the precursor to change.

The first step is becoming aware of the fact that you can actively and consciously take control of your thoughts, feelings, and actions. 

By using the Principles that come above Cause and Effect:

  • The Principle of Mentalism
  • The Principle of Correspondence
  • The Principle of Vibration
  • The Principle of Polarity
  • The Principle of Rhythm

You are able to:

Use your Free Will to generate positive thoughts.

Correspond your thoughts and actions with your desired outcomes.

Raise your vibration through aligned thought, feeling, and action.

Shift your state toward a more desirable pole.

And neutralise the backward swing of the pendulum.

Actively becoming the Cause of your life, instead of being a feather in the wind. 

You have to take control of your conscious mind and what thoughts you allow in.

Because thoughts are the ancestor of action.

Thoughts are seeds.

Whatever you think about regularly will grow.

Thought corresponds with action.

Positive thought corresponds with positive action.

Positive thoughts lead to positive feelings and positive actions.

These positive thoughts, feelings, and actions will raise your Vibration.

This rise in Vibration will allow you to shift yourself toward a more desirable pole on the spectrum of Polarity.

If you do this while you are experiencing a negative state…

You will neutralise the backward swing of the pendulum.

And in turn, transmute the negative to the positive.

The Superpower of Choice

You have the power to choose what to think, say, and do in every moment.

Even when you are feeling terrible.

Even when you are fulfilling obligations that you’d rather not be doing.

You have the ability to shift your perspective.

To make the best choice possible in your current situation.

To improve the lives of the people around you.

To be a force for good in this world.

Your vibration will rub off on the people and the world around you.

It is up to you to make sure that you are vibrating at a high frequency.

It is your job to turn lead into gold.

It is your job to transmute the negative into the positive.

You are creating your reality in every moment.

Whether you cause ripples of light or dark is entirely up to you.

With energy,


Improve Your Health.

Expand Your Mind.

Raise Your Vibration.
