Universal Law #8: The Law of Compensation - Ashley Brothers


The Law of Compensation serves as a cosmic mechanism for maintaining balance and harmony through reciprocity. It is rooted in the belief that every thought, emotion, intention, and action generates a reaction and a consequence of some kind. Because the universe has an innate sense of justice, whatever energy you invest and put forth into the world (whether it be positive or negative) will be compensated with a similar energy in return.

You can’t cheat or beg the universe to give you what you want. This means that the universe isn’t going to hand you what you want for nothing. You have to earn it in some way. You either have to put in the mental, emotional, or physical effort to get the results you seek or you have to raise your vibration to be in alignment with that goal or desire. If you invest nothing, you get nothing. If you do not energetically match your desires, you will either never have what you want or you will lose it shortly after obtaining it because not only does like attracts like, but only true matches form long-term bonds.

Mindset plays an important role in the Law of Compensation. Lazy or negative people, with a victim mentality or lack/poverty mindset, don’t get very far in life. They will find or create more unsavory events, circumstances, and relationships that validate and perpetuate their victimhood and poverty. People who are multi-millionaires are positive, hardworking, and outgoing, and they get paid relative to the difficulty of the problem they are solving or they have created products or services that have value for a lot of people. If what you have to offer is not valuable or in high demand, you won’t make money. So, a person has to be aware of what they are contributing to the world and how others are responding to it.

As with any true justice, you are rewarded for good deeds or punished for bad ones. If money has been gained through harming others, the perpetrators will be punished eventually, but if money has been gained through purity of heart, then fame and fortune will continue and multiply.

If you seek more information about the Law of Compensation, I invite you to embark on this journey of self-awareness, accountability, and responsibility, understanding that the energy we invest in the world echoes back into our own experiences. Join me in unraveling the profound implications of this universal law, discovering how conscious living and ethical choices can influence the reciprocal nature of compensation and contribute to the harmony of our personal and collective existence.

Positive Effects of the Law of Compensation:

  • Abundance Through Generosity: One of the positive effects of the Law of Compensation is abundance through generosity. When you give freely of your time, resources, or knowledge, the universe responds by compensating you with abundance. Acts of kindness and generosity create a positive flow of energy, inviting reciprocal blessings into your life.

  • Success Through Diligence and Hard Work: The law rewards diligence and hard work with success. When you invest effort and energy into your endeavors, the universe compensates you with opportunities, achievements, and the fulfillment of your goals. Consistent and focused work aligns with the natural flow of compensation.

  • Fulfilling Relationships Through Love and Compassion: Love and compassion form a powerful currency in the realm of the Law of Compensation. When you contribute positively to the lives of others through love and empathy, you attract fulfilling relationships in return. The energy of kindness is reciprocated, creating a harmonious exchange.

Negative Effects of Ignoring the Law of Compensation:

  • Scarcity Mindset and Lack: Ignoring or violating the Law of Compensation may lead to a scarcity mindset and a sense of lack. If you withhold generosity or engage in negative actions, you may find yourself in a cycle of scarcity, experiencing a lack of opportunities, resources, and abundance.

  • Strained Relationships and Discord: Negative actions and behaviors can strain relationships and create discord in your personal and professional life. The Law of Compensation responds to negativity with corresponding energy, potentially leading to conflicts, misunderstandings, and a lack of mutual support.

  • Missed Opportunities for Growth: Disregarding the law may result in missed opportunities for personal and spiritual growth. If you fail to invest positive energy and effort into your pursuits, the compensation may be a lack of progress and missed chances for expansion and development.

How to Use the Law of Compensation to Manifest a Better Life:

  • Practice Generosity and Acts of Kindness: Embrace the spirit of generosity by practicing acts of kindness. Give freely of your time, resources, and positive energy to others. The Law of Compensation responds to generosity by reciprocating abundance and blessings into your life.

  • Invest Diligence and Passion into Your Goals: Manifest a better life by investing diligence and passion into your goals. Work consistently and wholeheartedly towards your aspirations. The energy you dedicate to your endeavors will be compensated with success, opportunities, and the realization of your dreams.

  • Cultivate Love and Compassion in Relationships: Foster fulfilling relationships by cultivating love and compassion. Treat others with empathy and understanding, creating a positive and reciprocal energy exchange. The Law of Compensation responds to harmonious interactions by enriching your connections and attracting supportive individuals into your life.

  • Align Actions with Positive Intentions: Ensure that your actions align with positive intentions. Before making decisions or taking action, consider the potential effects they may have on yourself and others. By aligning your actions with positivity, you invite corresponding energy and compensation into your life.

  • Be Mindful of Your Thoughts and Beliefs: The Law of Compensation is sensitive to your thoughts and beliefs. Be mindful of the mental energy you emit into the universe. Cultivate a positive mindset and beliefs that support your goals. The compensation you receive reflects the energy of your predominant thoughts.

  • Learn from Mistakes and Course Correct: Acknowledge and learn from mistakes rather than dwelling on them. If negative consequences arise from your actions, use them as opportunities for growth and learning. Course correct by adjusting your behaviors and aligning with positive energy.

  • Express Gratitude for Abundance: Cultivate an attitude of gratitude for the abundance in your life. Express appreciation for the positive experiences, relationships, and opportunities you've received. Gratitude amplifies the positive energy you emit, attracting even more abundance through the Law of Compensation.

  • Visualize and Affirm Abundance: Utilize visualization and affirmations to manifest abundance. Envision your life filled with prosperity, joy, and success. Affirm positive statements that align with the life you wish to create. Visualization and affirmation serve as powerful tools for influencing the energy you attract and the compensation you receive.


The Law of Compensation invites us to become conscious architects of our reality by recognizing the reciprocity inherent in the universe. By practicing generosity, investing diligence in our goals, cultivating positive relationships, and aligning our actions with intentions, we can harness the power of compensation to manifest a better and more abundant life. As you navigate the intricate dance of cause and effect, you'll find yourself on a transformative journey toward a life filled with fulfillment, prosperity, and harmonious reciprocity.
