In reading about how we create our world physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, I’ve noticed a consistent theme around energy – it is always there.  So what does that mean in our everyday lives?   Bring energy into your field of awareness and pay attention to it.  How often have you said (words), done (actions), felt (emotions), or thought something only to ignore it or brush it off.  Then that very thing actually happens in your life and you remember that you had an inkling of it before.
