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.
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.
