The Law of Attraction
The Law of Attraction is the magnetic power of the universe to bring together similar energies. It is the force that creates all life--from galaxies and planets to rocks, plants and people. All thoughts, living beings, situations or circumstances are comprised of energy that operate under the universal laws of physics. It is the art of understanding that like attracts like.
Medicine Wheel - 7 Directions
A 5,000 year old symbol that recognizes all aspects of creation. It represents all life--animal, plant, mineral and spiritual worlds working in harmony and interconnectedness. Like a wheel in motion, energy can take many forms and moves through cycles. By working in unison with the flow of energy, we can maximize personal growth and experience deeper levels of well being.
