Why the 7 Universal Principles Are Important for Kids

There are seven universal principles that provide a strong foundation for us all and are based on the idea that there are natural laws that are always at play. By teaching your kids these principles, you can give them a set of guidelines that will help them feel supported even when things seemingly do not go their way. Keep reading to learn more about each principle!

What are the 7 Universal Principles? And why are they important for kids to learn?

The 7 Universal Principles are a set of laws that govern the universe. They were written by Tehuti, the Ancient Egyptian spiritual and intellectual master, and shared in the book The Kybalion. The principles help people better understand how the universe works and how these natural laws apply to our lives.

They are more widely known as the 7 Laws of Tehuti or 7 Universal Laws. However, when explaining this concept to young people, I find it easier to use the term principles.

These principles guide people on their path towards spiritual enlightenment, but also provide practical advice for living a happy and fulfilling life.

The Universal Principles do not replace any spiritual teachings; instead, they work alongside them to further enhance your understanding of life. These laws are universal and apply to us all.

The Seven Universal Principles are:

  1. Law of Mentalism: The all is mind; the universe is mental.
  2. Law of Correspondence: As above, so below; as below, so above.
  3. Law of Vibration: Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.
  4. Law of Polarity: Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites.
  5. Law of Rhythm: Everything flows, out and in; everything has its tides; all things rise and fall.
  6. Law of Cause and Effect: Every cause has its effect; every effect has its cause; everything happens according to Law.
  7. Law of Gender: Gender is in everything; everything has its masculine and feminine principles; gender manifests on all planes.

What are some of the benefits of teaching your child these principles at an early age?

We often think about teaching our children how to be kind, honest and respectful. With the help of these principles, we can teach our children how to make choices that are in alignment with who they are.

Teaching children how to love themselves is one of the most important things we can do as parents. These principles will help provide peace and direction while also reinforcing to children the beauty in trusting their gut feelings.

The Seven Universal Principles foster self-discovery and growth while giving children a foundation for living in harmony with themself and the universe as they grow and experience life.

By teaching children the 7 Universal Principles at an early age, they can begin to practice these principles, which will be helpful to them as they enter the adolescent and young adult stages.
