The Kybalion focuses on seven principles that are said to govern all aspects of life:

As Above So Below
  1. Mentalism — the belief that everything has an underlying mental cause
  2. Correspondence — the idea that there are patterns between physical objects or phenomena
  3. Vibration — all matter vibrates at different frequencies
  4. Polarity — opposite forces create balance in nature
  5. Rhythm — things go through cycles over time
  6. Cause and Effect — every action has an equal reaction
  7. Gender — male & female energies exist within each person

These principles form the foundation for understanding how energy works in our lives — not just physically but spiritually too.

The ideas presented in The Kybalion have been embraced by many spiritual seekers who use them to gain greater insight into their own personal growth journey as well as understand more deeply how they can interact with their environment around them from both physical and metaphysical perspectives. Ultimately it’s up to each individual reader whether or not they find value in this work; however those who do may find themselves better equipped for navigating life’s challenges while also tapping into higher levels of consciousness than ever before!

Taken from book “The Kybalion” which is not an easy read and this articles has my takeaways.

“The Principles of Truth are Seven; he who knows these, understandingly, possesses the Magic Key before whose touch all the Doors of the Temple fly open.” — The Kybalion.
