In this lesson, we explore the second layer of conflict (-3), Universal Polarities and Energy Patterns.
There is a basic physics principle: Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Keeping this in mind can help you understand Universal Polarities because they always come in pairs. If someone is acting "defensive", then there is an equal and opposite "attack" somewhere else in the relationship. If someone is dominant than someone else is likely to be submissive.
Understanding this layer can help us see how our own unconscious behaviors actually *create* some of the behavior in our partners that is most problematic for us.
When we practice the same responses over and over for a lifetime, they form familiar "energy patterns" in our bodies. These energy patterns have very predictable ways of interacting with each other. In this lesson, you'll learn about how they interact and begin to see that a lot of your conflicts are not even personal to you, and are truly universal and experienced by everyone with similar polarities and energy patterns! That's a great first step toward being able to choose differently.
