It is important to know how energy works so we can have freedom of choice in our lives. Energy expressions have two components which govern their movement.
The Laws of Energy Attraction sit in the cardinal directions. (Remember the cardinal directions of a wheel stabilize the energy.) These are the qualities of energy and whether it attracts or repels. The factor which has the greatest bearing on each law is whether or not we as humans know the law and use it to come into alignment with the energy which is present.
The Four Choices of Energy Response sit in the non-cardinal directions. (The non-cardinal directions move the energy.) The factor with the greatest bearing on the choice of energy expression is the understanding that we do have a choice about how we respond to energy, and that our choice makes a difference in the quality and richness of our life.
