Cause and Effect: Make the Most of This Law

The Law of Cause and Effect is probably the most known universal law. Few know, however, how to apply it efficiently. Learn the secrets today.

the law of cause and effect


What Is the Law of Cause and Effect

There are many definitions explaining the meaning of this universal law. Cause and effect simply mean that your current situation is the result of your past efforts, and the future will be the crop of your today's thoughts, words, and deeds.

Many people have written about the Law of Cause and Effect, not only psychologists or self-help gurus. For example:

The universal law of cause and effect states that for every effect there is a definite cause, likewise for every cause, there is a definite effect. Your thoughts, behaviours, and actions create specific effects that manifest and create your life as you know it. " - IQ Matrix

This is the immutable universal law, which means that it will always work and cannot be changed. You can only try to use it to your advantage living, however, according to it.

What Can Trigger the Law of Cause and Effect

This law can be triggered by anything, starting from thoughts and ending with your body reactions, e.g. coughing or vomiting. Let's see how thoughts can cause positive or negative effects:

Thoughts And the Law of Cause and Effect

Everything starts with thinking. Many people do not realise that each thought they have in their minds, materialises. Therefore, if you want a happy life, start with your thoughts. They may be the reasons for your troubles.

Change your actions, and you change your life… Transform your thoughts, and you will create a brand-new destiny.

Your mind is like a garden or a meadow. Your goal is to keep it neat and tidy, only with uplifting thoughts, having any weeds (i.e., the negative thoughts) eradicated.

If you neglect your garden, the weeds start to create events in your life in harmony with them, which simply means negativity and misfortune.

For example, if you are constantly afraid of breaking a leg, eventually you will have an accident and your leg will be broken indeed. This will be the effect of your past thinking.

Let me give you a more positive example now.

Suppose that you want to see someone and are thinking of him or her. Suddenly your phone rings and this person wants to talk to you and later... meet you. However, the same rule will apply when you think that the other person will criticise you... believe me, he or she will.

Emotions And the Law of Cause and Effect

Thoughts have a direct impact on your emotions. When you think, a given frequency is fired and wired by your brain which triggers the brain to release chemical substances aimed at the inducement of some reactions by the body, mostly by producing hormones.

Hormones, in turn, stimulate emotions. For example, adrenaline is responsible for stress, and serotonin is for happiness. Both emotions will have a different impact on your body in the short and long run. Adrenaline will inhibit the proliferation of cells, regeneration and digestion, happiness will induce them.

Moreover, negative, or positive emotions stimulate the brain to think more similar thoughts and release more chemicals, unless you stop this vicious cycle in the case of negative thoughts and emotions.

The consequences of your emotions go even deeper. You record them in your DNA, so cellular memory will store all your traumas but also the moments of great happiness. Your thoughts and emotions are also stored by your subconscious mind, ready to be wired and fired at any time in the future.

Behaviours And the Law of Cause and Effect

In other words, these are your deeds. Just think about what will happen when you do not observe stopping at the red light, just because there are no cars.

You may avoid a fine once, but the next time, in a similar situation, either someone will do the same against you which may even end with an accident or the police will find you and you will face negative legal implications for your act, from being fined to arrest and imprisonment (e.g., in the case when reckless driving, after drinking, caused a mortal accident.

Beliefs And the Law of Cause and Effect

Beliefs are the roots of our thoughts. In case of negative beliefs, they are like the most solid roots (i.e., rhizomes) of a nettle (although nettle can be good for tea and can be used as a cure.)

Therefore, sometimes you need to do a thorough ploughing and destroying of all your belief systems to start attracting happiness to your life.

It is proved that just changing one word can change your life and make you happier. For example, if you substitute "should" with "could", you will be less stressed out.

It is also possible to diminish negative emotions, saying "I'm irritated" instead of "I'm exasperated/furious etc." Also, avoid foul language as its vibrations are extremely low. More about creating a wonderful life in your language soon on my blog.

How To Make the Most of The Law of Cause and Effect?

The Law of Cause and Effect assumes that all that you have, experience, do and think now is the result of your past thoughts, words, actions and beliefs. Hence if you are not happy with the effects you have created, change the causes that created them in the first place.

1. Determine the Cause and Effect Affects Relationships

In the beginning, do it in writing. take your diary and write down all the events from last week or even the month. Then answer the questions below, for each of these events:

  • What was the reason for these crops?

  • What have done before?

Identify the specific things you will need to do to get the results that you want. You need to understand yourself and how you act as a person. You also need a good knowledge of your belief systems.

List your current results in each area of your life in a diary. Look at the results that bring you unhappiness. What could be their reasons?

2. Take Massive Action

Firstly, make the decision to focus on, and do, the things that other happy people have done. Secondly, model someone who is happy in each area of life.

Look at your list now. Who could be successful, happy, and fulfilled in the areas you are struggling with? Find these people. Then learn how they have achieved their success and follow their recipe.

Sometimes taking “action” just means believing that you can do whatever your heart desires! Then you manifest it by saying all around what you want to be, e.g. a millionaire, a spiritual coach etc.

However, always remember that your goal needs to be aligned with your soul plan and promote the values of the Light.

2.1 Work With Your Mind, Emotions, Body And Soul

The articles below will help you to tackle and win negative thoughts and vent negative emotions. Work on both issues at the same time. use your diary for observations and transformations, e.g., writing affirmations that disarm negativity.

  • venting your emotions,

  • dissolving negative thoughts

  • meeting your soul plan facing your challenges and life lessons,

  • taking care of your health

2.2. Watch Your Language

I have already mentioned the importance of your tongue for creating a positive life. Find some examples below and check how they resonate with you while being used.

Moreover, you can say the same thing differently and start feeling differently. In the examples below, the first word is stronger in meaning and emotional impact on you. Notice that the words on the second, third and fourth rows gradually weaken the meaning of your message. So, from livid, you go to discomfort.

There are also many sabotaging phrases that you use every day. Said differently, they empower you instead of disempowering you.

Disempowering phrase

Empowering phrase

I can't ...

I won't ...

I should/shouldn't...

I could/ couldn't, I would/wouldn't ...

It's impossible (to) ...

I can handle it.

I'm stupid/an idiot..

I am learning ...

Empowering and disempowering language

These are only some examples of how you can change your language. Create a habit in which whenever you catch yourself saying a sabotaging word or phrase, you instantly change it into a more positive one. Always remember that your words create your life, the same as your thoughts and deeds.

2.3. Beware of Your Deeds

This category of creation is easy to explain. Some proverbs are saying that we should treat our neighbours the way we want to be treated. So, if you want more love in your love, always behave lovingly, even in the case of the beings who have done you any kind of harm.


Meditation will help you to learn more about the reasons for what is happening in your life, and it also shows you the consequences of your current actions, thoughts and words.

3. Persevere

Some more facts about your deeds: if you take action and do the things that others have done, eventually you will end up with the same results - the positive or the negative ones, depending on the people whom you model. We want happiness, aren't we? Then model positive people.

However, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” It is going to take some time to change your current situation. Use your diary again to monitor your progress.

But remember that Rome is being built constantly and every brick matters. Laid in the wrong way to be different from the rest, this one brick may cause your Colosseum will collapse. Hence, always beware of your thoughts, language used, emotions and deeds.

It will not take a lifetime to change your situation, but it will take “some” time, in a good or bad way. And the more challenging the process of changing your life, the bigger the reward.

Never give up! Stay focused, find out your causes to ensure you are doing the right things and tweak your approach if necessary.
