The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy

The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy can be recognized in the never-ending action of change in everything around us.  We all transmute energy in every intention we have and the action we take.

Have you ever defused a negative situation?  If you have, you understand how you can transmute the energy around you in many ways.  In an escalating argument, for example, a sincere apology can transform the energy instantly from negative to neutral or even positive.  

Universal LawsThis is part six of a twelve-part series about ancient mystical teachings called the Universal Laws or Hermetic Principles.   The focus of this article is twofold;  The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy and creating art exploring this principle.

Many believe that by harnessing the Universal Principles, you can achieve inner peace, a deeper connection to the universe, and a greater understanding of yourself.  The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy is the sixth law.

In my Soul Artist series of classes, among many topics, we use our art journals to explore the Universal Laws.  My vision quest notebook was the inspiration for my classes.  As I sought answers to spiritual questions, I kept a journal that chronicled my exploration.  This spiritual art provided mental landmarks for each new concept I learned. 

Similarly, Soul Artists create art journal pages as they delve into each lesson.  

The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy provides many opportunities for Soul Artists to explore in their journals.  For example;Perpetual Transmutation of Energy conveying energy in motion.  Being conscious of our choices and judgments; realizing that we have the power to transform energy.  The concept of co-creating with divine potential.  Personal alchemy; energy coming to us in one form and through our thoughts and actions, transmuting that energy to something completely different.  Or, doing small things every day that transforms your personal energy; lift you up, and make you feel energetic and happy.

When we bring awareness and conscious intention into thoughts and actions, we transmute them in a form of personal alchemy.

When I think about the Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy, the premise of the movie, It’s a Wonderful Life comes to mind.  

”Each man’s life touches so many other lives, and when he isn’t around, he leaves an awful hole, doesn’t he?” the angel Clarence says to George Bailey.  We learn that George Bailey had an impact on his family, his town, and more.   So many things would have been different without George. Bedford Falls, for example, would have been Pottersville. Not only would Zuzu and the other children not have been born, but George also saved his brother Harry when he fell through the ice on a pond.  Harry then went on to save lives in the war; lives that might have been lost but for George saving Harry.  The point is, we have no idea how significantly our lives affect others.

Perpetual Transmutation of EnergyWe have hundreds of opportunities every day to transmute energy.  

Even small actions can have profound effects. Each day, when you consider that you have a choice in how you respond to every situation, it helps you realize your power.

For example, assume you are impacted by something negative in your environment, such as seeing a driver on the freeway cut someone off.  


You have an array of choices you can make in response,

You can choose a thought that triggers a corresponding emotion like annoyance or anger.  

Or, you can make a different choice to try to transmute the energy within your emotions; perhaps feeling compassion for both drivers.  Feeling grateful that no accident resulted, or choosing to look for a way to show courtesy to another driver yourself will transform the energy to an even higher level.

When you can transform the negative energy into something neutral or even positive, it’s a form of personal alchemy.  You are transmuting energy.

As you begin to see yourself as an energetic spark; you recognize that you are an integral part of a magnificent creative force.  Perpetual Transmutation of Energy Connecting to that, you begin to flourish at a new level. 

It is a kind of freedom; knowing that you are a miraculous being; a difference-maker who is co-creating your life.

Your intentions shape your thoughts, words, and actions. 

The Universe responds to each of your thoughts, words, and actions.  You are shaping your reality and you can continue to shape it throughout your whole life.  

Spiritual teachers tell us that thoughts are things.  If you can imagine it, you can manifest it. 

The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy contains the idea that all energy in motion eventually manifests into physical form and can then manifest back into energy.

Perpetual Transmutation of EnergyWe have the unending ability to change the energy within and around us.  We’ve learned that higher vibrations have the capacity to change lower vibrations.  It is possible to transmute negative energy into positive.

You can personally change; you are never stuck.

Energy can be changed in endless capacity.  If you ever have the belief that you are trapped where you are    whether, in a relationship, job, location, or body, it is simply untrue.  You have the capacity to change every single thing in your life by changing the energy within and around you.

If you have ever followed the advice; ‘fake it till you make it or walk in like you own the place’ you have tapped into this law.  

You know that by changing your inner energy you can transform yourself. 

I am an introvert, but I know that I can transform my energy and behave like an extrovert for a period of time.  It is said that Marilyn Monroe could walk down 5th Avenue without a second glance or be mobbed depending on whether she ‘turned on’ her inner star or not.

To put The Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy into action on a practical level, think about doing small things every day that make you feel vibrant and abundant. 

Any mood-lifting activity can make you happier and raise your vibration. 

This can be anything that lifts your soul.  For me, a walk outside with my dog, singing alone in the car, and creative time are my go-to mood elevators.

Come into your power and take advantage of the hundreds of opportunities every day to transmute the energy within and around you.
