Magic, Creative process
LUCILLE CEDERCRANS: Nature of the Soul, Lesson 28 and 29, page
347: “The Art and Science of Magic, which we might also accurately define as the art and science of service, operates according to fixed laws which the proba­tioner is learning to manipulate. These laws control the movement of energy, force, and substance into prede­termined patterns, which we call forms.

As the Soul comprehends the Law, and manipulates it in cooperation with Divine Purpose and Plan, He masters the form nature and not only liberates himself from its prison, but uses it (the form nature) in service to The Christ.”

359:” The appearance of form on any plane of existence pre­supposes that its cre­ator has consciously or uncon­sciously cooperated with the law, and that working under and with that law, he has followed a certain process which we call magic. The process results in an appearance of form, where before there was no form.”

363 – 366: “The laws which have to do with the creative process concern:

  1. The illumination of the three.

We are concerned here with the equation of spirit, matter, and consciousness. Into what relationship must these three be placed in order to produce a mani­festa­tion of the Plan? …

  1. The appropriation of substance and its creation into devic form.

The building of the form proceeds in four frequencies of prime matter. This means that behind all form on any plane of existence are four frequencies, sometimes referred to as the four elements of earth, air, fire and water.

They are known by the occultist as
1 = esoteric light
2 = esoteric sound
3 = esoteric color
4 = esoteric vibration.

These four frequencies of prime matter make up the substance of any plane of existence, and are the stuff out of which the devic form is constructed.

The magician must appropriate these four elements, and in their proper combination construct the devic form into which the Plan can be carried into outer manifestation.”

Magnetic Attraction
ALICE A. BAILEY: Cosmic Fire, page
782: “The response of the substance to the atomic vibration upon the particular plane involved.  This concerns the second group of Pitris, whose function it is to gather together the substance attuned to any particular key, and to aggregate it around the permanent atom.  They work under the Law of Magnetic Attraction, and are the attractive energy of the permanent atom.  On a tiny scale each permanent atom has (to the substance of a man’s sheaths) a position relative to that which the physical sun holds to the substance of the system. It is the nucleus of attractive force.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: White Magic, page
521 – 22: “These prisoners of the planet fall into two major groups …

First, the substance of all forms, or the multiplicity of tiny atomic lives which, through the power of thought, are drawn into the form aspect through which all existences or all souls, mineral, vegetable, animal and the animal body of man, express themselves. … Under the Law of Magnetic Attraction and owing to the impulsive activity of the Universal Mind as it works out the purposes of the solar Logos or of the planetary Logos these constituents of the matter of space, these atoms of substance, are drawn together, manipulated in a rhythmic manner and held together in form.”

Magnetic Control – 4th Systemic Law
ALICE A. BAILEY: Cosmic Fire, page
569: “b. Seven Systemic Laws.—Subsidiary to the three major laws, we find the seven laws of our solar system.  Again we find the law of analogy elucidating, and the three becoming the seven as elsewhere in the logoic scheme.  In each of these seven laws we find an interesting correlation with the seven planes.  They are: …

  1. The Law of Magnetic Controlholds sway paramountly on the buddhic plane, and in the development of the control of this law lies hid the control of the personality by the Monad via the egoic body.”

583- 586: “4. The law of Magnetic Control. This law is the basic law controlling the Spiritual Triad.  Through this law, the force of evolution drives the Ego to progress through the cycle of reincarnation back to union with his kind.  Through separation he finds himself, and then – driven by the indwelling buddhic or Christ principle – transcends himself, and finds himself again in all selves.  This law holds the evolving lower self in a coherent form.  It controls the Ego in the causal body, in the same way that the Logos controls the Monad on the second plane.  It is the law of the buddhic plane; …”

LUCILLE CEDERCRANS: Creative Thinking, Lesson 18, page
71: “The three recondite laws behind the fact that energy follows thought can be defined in the following manner:

  1. The Law of Polarity. …
  2. The Law of Magnetic Control. When a magnetic field is created within the mind and maintained there, mental substance is set into motion in the pattern dictated by the will. A thought is born via the magnetic control of substance.
  3.  The Law of Precipitation. …”

Magnetic Impulse – 2nd Law of Group Work (esoteric name: The Law of Polar Union)
ALICE A. BAILEY: Cosmic Fire, page
1216: “Law 2.  The Law of Magnetic Impulse.  The law governing the primary realisations by any atom of its environing contacts, and the going out, or feeling after, by that atom so that eventually a relation between that which is realised as part of the group and the unit is established.  This is not the same thing as making sense contacts, as the relation established is between the Self in all, and not between aspects of the Not-Self.  This law is sometimes called “The first step towards marriage,” for it results in an eventual union between the man or atom and the group which produces harmonious group relations.”

1220: “For each of these Laws, there is a definite formula and symbol.  At this stage of teaching or through this Treatise, it is not possible to reveal or impart the formulas.  The symbol may be described …

Law 2.  Two balls of fire united by a triangle of fire, thus picturing the triple interplay between all atomic structures.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: Esoteric Psychology II, page 109 – 117
110 – 112: “This Law of Magnetic Impulse governs the relation, the interplay, the intercourse, and the interpenetration between the seven groups of souls on the higher levels of the mental plane which constitute the first of the major form differentiations.  These we can only study intelligently from the angle of the seven ray groups, as they compose the spiritual aspect of the human family.  This law governs also the relationships between souls, who, whilst in manifestation through form, are en rapport with each other.  It is a law, therefore, which concerns the inter-relation of all souls within the periphery of what the Christians call “the Kingdom of God.”  Through a right understanding of this law, the man arrives at a knowledge of his subjective life; he can wield power subjectively, and thus work consciously in form and with form, yet holding his polarisation and his consciousness in another dimension, and functioning actively behind the scenes.  This law concerns those inner esoteric activities which are not primarily related to form life. …

The Law of Magnetic Impulse is in the soul realm what the Law of Attraction is in the world of phenomena. …

This law governs also the relation of the soul of a group to the soul of other groups.  It governs the interplay, vital but unrealised yet as a potency, between the soul of the fourth kingdom in nature, the human, and the soul of the three subhuman kingdoms, and likewise that of the three superhuman kingdoms.”

696: “There is a law called the Law of Magnetic Impulse or Polar Union which plays an active part here.  This law governs the relation of the soul of a group to the soul of other groups.  It governs the interplay, vital but unrealised yet as a potency, between the soul of the fourth kingdom in nature, the human, and the soul of the three subhuman kingdoms, and likewise of the three superhuman kingdoms.  It is, owing to the major part which humanity has to play in the great scheme or Plan of God, the law which will be the determining law of the race.  This will not, however, be the case until the majority of human beings understand something of what it means to function as souls.”

697: “Just as the Law of Attraction, working on the physical plane, brought them together as men and women into one group effort, so the Law of Magnetic Impulse can begin to control them when, again as a group and only as a group, they unitedly constitute themselves channels for service in pure self-forgetfulness.”

Magnetic Resistance – the laws of magnetic repulsion and attraction
ALICE A. BAILEY: Cosmic Fire, page
90 – 91: “These golden hued pranic entities are in the air above us, and are specially active in such parts of the world as California, in those tropical countries where the air is pure and dry, and the rays of the sun are recognised as being specially beneficial. Relations between man and this group of devas are very close, but fraught as yet with much danger to man. These devas are of a very powerful order, and, along their own line, are further evolved than man himself. Unprotected man lies at their mercy, and in this lack of protection, and man’s failure to understand the laws of magnetic resistance, or of solar repulsion comes, for instance, the menace of sunstroke. When the etheric body and its assimilative processes are comprehended scientifically, man will then be immune from dangers due to solar radiation. He will protect himself by the application of the laws governing magnetic repulsion and attraction, and not so much by clothing and shelter. It is largely a question of polarisation.”

Magnetic Work
ALICE A. BAILEY: Rays and The Initiations, page
404: “Constantly, therefore, this great circulatory process goes on, demonstrating anew the essential synthesis underlying all life – human, planetary, systemic and cosmic; it reveals also that the Law of Attraction, the Law of Magnetic Work, and the cosmic Law of Synthesis are three aspects of one Law for which, as yet, we have no name.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: Rays and The Initiations, page
248: “He must study the five meanings of magnetisation.  This refers to the five modes in which the Law of Magnetisation works; this is another name for the Law of Attraction.”

Magnetism – Subsidiary law of the Law of Attraction, 2nd Cosmic Law
ALICE A. BAILEY: Cosmic Fire, page
1169: “4. The Law of Magnetism.  This is the law which produces the unifying of a personality, and though it is an expression of lunar force, it is, nevertheless, of a much higher order than the law of physical sex. It is the expression of the law as it is demonstrated by the three major groups of lunar pitris. These three groups are not concerned with the building of the forms of the animal kingdom, for they are the builders of the body of man in the final three stages of the path of evolution:

  1. The stage of high intellectuality, or of artistic attainment,
  2. The stage of discipleship,
  3. The stage of treading the Path.

The lower four groups concern themselves with the earlier stages, and with the animal aspects of attraction in both the kingdoms.”

Man-made laws – see also Basic Laws for the public in the section Groupings
ALICE A. BAILEY: Esoteric Psychology I, page
303: “The final postulate which I seek to emphasize is that the keeping of these three laws will lead necessarily to an urgent desire to keep the law of the land in which a particular soul has incarnated.  That these man-made laws are inadequate I well know, and it is needless to point this out.  They may be, and are, temporary and insufficient to the need.  They may fail in their scope and prove inadequate, but they do, in a measure, safeguard the little feeble ones, and will be regarded therefore as binding upon those who are seeking to help the race.  These laws are subject to change as the effect of the three great laws makes itself felt, but until they are wisely altered (and this takes time) they act as a brake on license and on selfishness.”

GEOFFREY HODSON: Theosophy for the Lawyer

  • “Human law, in its impersonality, impartiality and strict justice, like mathematics, is a most direct expression on earth of the Divine in the Cosmos. For the highest possible definition of God is as the Principle of immutable Law under which all things great and small, macrocosmic and microcosmic, are conceived, made manifest, densified to the deepest degree, polished, perfected and finally withdrawn. In the Macrocosm all is law and law is all. This is the highest, noblest of God and ideal of Divinity. God is immutable Law.”
  • “Human law mirrors divine law. The man of law is an agent of that law. The touch of heaven rests upon the miscalled dry-as-dust procedure of the administration of the law.”

Materialisation or Hidden Radiance – 3rd law produced by the activity of the three aspects
ALICE A. BAILEY: Esoteric Psychology I, page
377: “In the next race, the Lemurian, the triple activity of the divine essential attributes demonstrated as the Law of Materialisation, or (as it is sometimes called) the Law of Hidden Radiance. This law concerns the Light which is in man, and the covering of that Light, in time and space, in order to produce its intensification and its consequent and subsequent radiation, so that, through humanity, light may eventually reach all forms of divine expression.”

ALICE A. BAILEY: Cosmic Fire, page
216 – 19: “Thus can be seen the wonderful synthesis brought about by the evolutionary working of these three cosmic laws, – each of them embodying the mode of work of certain cosmic Entities or Existences. The final two will be taken up in their right place. Now we will touch but briefly upon the law of matter, that of Economy. …

As the note of the first or Mahadeva aspect, follows upon the other two, he realises himself as pure Spirit and on the consummation of the chord is merged in the Self, or the source from which he came.  Mind is not, matter is not, and nought is left but the Self merged in the ocean of the Self. At each stage of relative attainment, one of the laws comes into sway, – first the law of matter, then the law of groups, to be succeeded by the law of Spirit and of liberation.”

Mental Plane
LUCILLE CEDERCRANS: Applied Wisdom, Dark Forces, page
179: “However, when the individual becomes aware of the Laws of the mental plane, when he becomes aware with the power of thought, he is then faced with decision. He cannot escape conscious direction of energies, for as he becomes aware of the Laws of the mental plane, he becomes more and more cognizant of the fact that his thoughts direct energy into manifestation. Therefore, he is faced with the choice as to the path of manifestation his energies shall take. Will he lend his forces to the activities of the White or the Black Lodge?”

Monadic Return – Subsidiary law of the Law of Attraction, 2nd Cosmic Law
ALICE A. BAILEY: Cosmic Fire, page
1040: “This spiral-cyclic activity, which is distinctive of all forms, can perhaps be comprehended more practically if we study it as an expression of four laws, taking each one briefly in turn: …”

1046 – 1054: “2. The Law of Monadic Return. …

It will, therefore, be apparent, that the “Law of Monadic Return” which we have just been considering, is the sumtotal of those influences which have a direct bearing upon the monadic atoms, which affect its progress cyclically, and which stimulate it, or retard its activity according to the strength of the initiating life.  It is only after initiation that the human atom reaches a stage in its development where forces and influences begin to be comprehended.  When the methods are understood whereby adjustment is consciously made to extraneous force currents, resistance to retarding forces is initiated consciously and with scientific accuracy, and the man consciously puts himself into line with forces which will swing him along on the path of return.  There is in this thought no undue complexity or cause for discouragement, for ever the potent force of electrical energy will offset the more lethargic vibration of solar fire, and solar fire itself in due time will negate the effects of “fire by friction”.”

Mutual Attraction
ALICE A. BAILEY: Cosmic Fire, page
367: “As earlier pointed out, each Heavenly Man is linked with one of His Brothers under the Law of Mutual Attraction, which manifests so degradingly as yet upon the physical plane, through the life of the human unit, imprisoned in physical form.  Psychically the link is of a different nature, and such a link is found between the planetary Logos of the scheme we call Venus, and the Logos of our scheme.”
