Hermetic principles are dated back to first century A.D when a renowned author, names as Hermes Trismegistus, outlined the foundation of Hermeticism by presenting these five basic, yet highly influential principles. Adhering to these spiritual principles has proved to improve ones life to a boundless extent.

7 Hermetic principles:
The Principle of Mentalism:
The Universe is an affiliation of our mental projection. In other words, what and how we think shapes our reality. If this universe is the manifestation of our consciousness, then, we can say that we have the power to create the life exactly as we want!

This principle explains how two seemingly opposite things are actually identical but with varying degrees. Like, when we are experiencing some negative emotion, we willingly practice shifting that emotion to a more positive one by controlling our spiritual energy. This Induces positivity and healing.
