The Path of Energy by Dr. Synthia Andrews, ND

The world we live in is far greater than anything our five senses interpret it to be. It is a sea of energy from which all events, circumstances and creations unfold, and according to Dr. Andrews, our bodies are pre-wired to tap this potential and utilize these frequencies. As more and more of us awaken to the realization that our inner sensitivities hold far greater powers than we ever realized, and we can learn to tap this invisible energy force, using it for the good of ourselves and the planet.
