We have choice of how we express our energy each and every moment, which determines whether we lose or gain energy. For example, imagine you are in the presence of a certain person and you feel repulsed by them, so you move away energetically. Let’s say you are in a negative space. You have four basic ways of responding to that energy. You can:
- compete with it, putting yourself into a win/lose situation
- oppose it and stay closed to the person
- create a conflict energy and see one of you as right and the other wrong
- align with the energy and risk losing your autonomy.
In our everyday experiences with people and energy, we have a tendency to react to energy instead of seeing it as a challenge of choice. Whether we gain or lose energy within our own circle depends on addressing the energetic challenge from a place of choice.
