The Hermetic Laws
Hermetic means ‘secret knowledge’ or ‘sealed’.
Most magick is founded on philosophy, with the Hermetic Laws being one of them. These principles are a set of philosophical beliefs based on the ancient writings of Hermes Trismegistus, circa 300 BCE. These principles were found inscribed on emerald tablets and discovered by Alexander the Great when he unearthed Hermes Trismegistus’s tomb.
The Seven Laws
- The Principle of Mentalism
- The Principle of Correspondence
- The Principle of Vibration
- The Principle of Polarity
- The Principle of Rhythm
- The Principle of Gender
- The Principle of Cause & Effect
The Hermetic teachings are found in all areas of the world as we know it and within all religious and mystical teachings. The appeal, as well as the application, are absolutely universal. The teachings have been repackaged for profit over and over again in our modern-day lives, for example, ‘The Secret’ and the ‘Laws of Attraction’.
All seven Hermetic Laws can be applied to business too.
