You are open beings. And if you are open you cannot expect to walk through the world with its fluctuating energy and not be affected. That is the importance of awareness. Awareness is everything. Why? Because when you become aware of the energies flying about in the busy world, you will be able to navigate your way through energetic minefields without taking them on, without exploring them, or running them around your own system. – You will be able to let those energies that don’t belong to you go.
