Direction is all around you: wherever you look, you face a different direction and furthermore you have behind you and to the side of you other directions still.
There are hundreds of possible directions, 360 precisely, the number of points on a compass being equivalent to the degrees in a circle: so, at any time, you are at the centre of a circle, but one the boundaries of which you cannot see because they stretch into infinity. That thought alone is interesting in itself, but it becomes even more significant when you remember that the choice you make about where to stand will change how you feel and what happens, sometimes imperceptibly, sometimes obviously.

Depending upon where you are, your position is likely to be on a leyline of some sort since the earth is filled with energy and vibration, inevitably affecting you somehow. These lines can be strong or weak, positive or negative, stimulating or depleting, and, since each directional point has its own spirit and character also, to be aware of and sensitive to the earth lines and the directions can be very helpful for your well being, assisting you to decide, for example, where to plant seeds, where to put your bed, where areas in your home need strengthening, or where strong energies need controlling. Some people believe that to live on a recognised important leyline facing in one of the key cardinal directions will be auspicious, but often this not so: the power of the two factors can be so overwhelming it becomes destructive and unbearable, resulting in ill- health, relationship issues and the need to move.
The lines of direction in themselves can form etheric highways unconnected with the earth, creating leylines in the air that are used by travelling souls or entities to reach their destination, just as bats fly using hedgerows and lines of trees to guide their path. When these astral roads follow the route of an earth leyline, they will be especially strong: if your house is on the route, there may be certain places in it which feel cold, or not peaceful, and you may wish to put a crystal or flowers there to deflect the energy and encourage it to go around or over where you are.
Be aware of your direction. Know the directions of your home, your desk, your chair, and practise sensing the differences as the compass points change around you. You have a "best" direction for you: recognise and use it, and as your sensitivity develops as to what is strengthening and what is not, you will reap the rewards of using the directions as tools for your growth, healing and protection, rather than allowing them to control you.
