Term: As Above, So Below

DEFINITION:
An expression used in many spiritual and magickal traditions that is a shortened version of a passage from a document called “The Emerald Tablet of Hermes.” In full, the section reads: “That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above, and that which is Above, corresponds to that which is Below, to accomplish the miracles of the One Thing.” The “miracles” refers specifically to alchemical practices, although it has been generalized to all magickal practices. Today, many people use this expression as an explanation for the relationship between the Divine and humanity. It implies that the spiritual world must follow certain laws of nature, and what happens on a spiritual plane must manifest on the physical plane, and that it’s possible to modify what’s on the spiritual plane through actions on the physical plane.
