A Thousand Keys
If you want to create real, lasting change in your life then ask more questions! A question is like a prayer. When you pose a question to the world, the natural polarity response is to receive an answer; it’s like two magnets that are attracted together through opposition. Both the positive & negative polarity exists because we live in a polarity universe. Masculine energies naturally balance out the feminine. Dark magnifies the light and a good day is often more recognizable after hard times. And each problem seeks its solution.
The answers to any questions can be answered within a moment. How many times have you asked a question and before you have even finished the sentence, the answer has arrived? How would that even be possible if asking questions didn’t naturally attract an answer? Like two magnets drawn together, it can show up instantly!
But sometimes the answers don’t come right away. In some instances we have to ask the questions over & over again until we can create enough energetic space to house the answer. Maybe something within our own consciousness needs to shift to allow the answers to come forth. But a delay in response doesn’t mean we are not meant to know the answer. It just means that more energy or alignment needs to occur for us to line up with the answer.
How we ask a question is very important as well. Depending on how the question is asked, receiving no answer may be THE answer. The Universe is very literal in its response to our intentions, so make sure you are posing questions that give you a clear answer. For example, “If I was to know if I should stay home or go out with my friends tonight, what would the answer be?” If you get no answer and you are already at home, then maybe the answer is to do nothing…in other words stay home!
Some questions induce more profound results faster than others. For example a higher charged question regarding losing weight may be, “What would my life be like if I lost 30 pounds?” verses “How can I lose weight?” You can speed up the process by asking your questions more frequently as well. The authors of the ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’ series did just that when they kept asking over & over again for the name of a best selling title for their book. They had to ask the question many times until the answer finally revealed itself in meditation to one of the authors. Sure enough, those books went on to be huge best sellers as they were intended!
Asking your question in many different ways is also highly effective. For example, “What will it take for me to lose weight?” “What will I have to change in my diet for me to lose weight?” What will I have to change in my exercise regime to support my body in losing weight?” “What have I not yet considered that I need to change in my life for my body to lose weight?” Asking the question in many different ways covers all your bases. Then enough energetic space can be created for your intention to be answered, and subsequent change, to rush in!
Children are our best example of this process put into daily action. They continuously ask questions and that is why they grow & change far more rapidly than adults do. As we get older, we often are conditioned to stop asking questions and this limits our ability to expand. When I was a child, I can remember my brother saying to me, “Stop asking so many questions!” This always confused me because I didn’t’ know how else I was to obtain the knowledge I was seeking. So it is no surprise that as we get older we get more set in our ways! This is because the more you think you know, the less you are connected to new possibilities & potentials that are awaiting you.
Sometimes our lives intervene when we become too stagnant in our growth process. Tragedies can force us to ask the tough questions that we would not otherwise think, or have the courage, to ask. After a tragedy, people often will ask themselves, “Why is this happening to me?” or “What do I need to learn from this experience?” Ironically, on some level the individuals involved were probably asking to WAKE UP and the tragedy was the catalyst to that change! Other life challenges, such as divorce and job loss, will also encourage people to re-evaluate their lives and question their current life path.
First up…Just Ask! No question is too big or too small for the Universe to answer. If your mind can think of the question, than the answer already exists! And by asking as many questions as you can everyday, in as many different ways possible, ensures the results you seek! Not only that, but the expansion that you create within yourself is also helpful to all those involved. By expanding into your greatest potential you allows others to thrive along with you!
Once we receive an answer, we have to trust what shows up! If we start second guessing the answers that come forth than we disconnect from the co-creative process of change. So if trust is a huge issue for you, start by asking the small questions first until you regain enough trust in the answers you are seeking. For example, “If I was to know where my glasses are, where would they be?” In this example you might not have such a huge investment in the answer as you might with a question about something like your finances or career. Like anything the more you practice something, the better you become. So the more you trust the process the more powerfully it can work for you.
The next step is to take inspired action. For example if you are asking how to lose weight and what shows up is to change your diet, than honour what shows up and do your part in the creative process. I know of so many people who spend hours a day meditating but refuse to show up in life and do the necessary work. By showing up, you are co-creating with life instead of being a victim to life. When you are in that space, before you know it your will be receiving the desired results you have intended for.
Finally a dash of gratitude keeps the transformations coming! Give thanks and celebrate when your questions find their answers. For you have just CONSCIOUSLY co-created with the Universe and expanded into a new greater potential for yourself. And the more we are grateful, the more the Universe brings forth that to be grateful for!
Are You Awake?
Regardless of where you are starting from, asking the questions is just the first step. The hard part is staying awake enough to receive the answers. Often we live in autopilot and are completely shut down to the co-creative process surrounding us. Our senses become dulled and people stop paying attention to the synchronicities & magic unfolding around them. By staying awake, the mind can refocus on the present moment and tune into the deeper meaning of life and the miracles surrounding us.
Staying awake moves you from a place of “I don’t have” or “I can’t” to “How can I?” or “When will the change arrive?” When that happens stagnant energy is instantly replaced with renewed, fresh energy. Try it! Try being in the midst of a problem and feel how heavy you feel by not having the solution. Then try asking a question that is specific to your situation and feel the anticipation that flows through you as you await the answer. You will feel more alive and more connected to life!
