When we like someone's energy, it doesn't necessarily mean we love that person.
Liking a person's energy means she or he emanates something that makes us feel good. We feel we benefit from that emotional presence, or from a physical, professional, or financial connection.
In this type of relationship, the focus is not on the person, but on ourselves, and on the benefit that a person's energy brings us.
Love, on the other hand, is about a heartfelt connection and experience of oneness with someone else that is self-sufficient in its own existence. This means that even if it’s not reciprocated by the other person, we don't get affected by it, we don’t long and linger and feel empty. We’re just grateful for that person’s existence, period.

The oracle psychograph the following: "You go. You...
Did you know there are five ways in which Consciousness speaks to us?
Depending on our levels of awareness, they can be kind, or intense.
The kindest language of consciousness is the language of symbols & signs in waking life.
You may hear the lyrics to a song, or see a movie, or different people will mention the same story or a specific word that may intuitively guide you in what you have to do or where you should go.
Another way consciousness speaks to us is through meditation. In meditation, we get insights, but this requires discipline. We must be willing to hear consciousness, and take the time to slow down, sit down, and meditate for at least 5 or 10 minutes.
Ideally, every day, but if it's not possible, at least twice a week.
If we're not paying attention or taking the time to hear these two subtle languages, Consciousness may speak to us through dreams.
In this case, we discern the dreams that come from Consciousness from ordinary...
