Are Your Questions Empowering?

Updated: May 1, 2022

Is it possible to create a vision when your navigating circumstances and situations that aren’t your preference? I am here to tell you, that this is probably the best time to do create a vision. The only way that you can overcome your difficulties is to go within; and to begin asking different questions with the awareness that there is an answer to any question that you ask.

The quality of the questions YOU ask will be reflected in the results YOU see in your life. Often though, when we're “caught up in what feels like tough situations, we ask disempowering questions. Questions like: What's wrong with me? How did this happen? Why me? How can I pay for this? How can I stop the pain, what should I do?

You will get answers to questions like this, but they will come from your very limited database of human experience, with thoughts and stories like…you were born on the wrong side of the tracks, this always happens to you, or because (fill in the blank). Often, we just get a list of excuses as to why we're experiencing what we are. When we’re in this state of mind, it feels like we don’t have a choice, and we are living condition-based lives. We need something to change outside of us before we can feel better. Victims have victim stories. If you desire a new experience, it is time to ask quality questions.

So, what makes a question empowering? I’d like to invite you to ponder the question: why are you and I even on this planet? Scientists say that the odds of any one of us being born is 1 in 400 trillion. It doesn’t really seem like we are here by accident. So why are we here? My mentor would say to evolve our souls. As spiritual begins having a human experience the content of our lives is the curriculum for how we do this. If this truly is the case, then why not get everything this experience came to teach you?

Empowering questions that can move you forward are: What's trying to emerge in my life? What is the growth opportunity here? What will support me through this? What's my gift to share? What is my purpose? What would I love more of? What would I like less of? If you ask empowering questions, the universe WILL answer in a way that you can understand. The truth is, you can choose in each and every moment, how you want to use these experiences to grow. When you ask empowering questions, there will be inner promptings, intuitive hits, nudges and dreams. The right person or resource suddenly shows up at the right and perfect time. The answers will come in a way that speaks to your soul. These questions, asked with sincerity will move you forward.

Your part is to make yourselves available and listen for the answers. This is available to every human being. Gandhi said “the Voice of Truth is as loud as our willingness to listen and it's within every one of us.” Know that this voice does not judge or berate. Once you ask with sincerity and curiosity, the universe will answer. When you ask,” what's trying to unfold within me” you’ll start to get hints. Then you can ask, “what’s a step I can take in the direction I want to go”? And as you take those baby steps, inertia becomes momentum, and then possibilities start to reveal themselves. Potential starts to be activated, and you’ll find yourself looking back and thinking, I’ve changed. I'm different, when did that happen? For transformation to happen we have to give up our resistance to circumstances, conditions and situations. Additional questions you can ask yourself to align yourself with the energy of your Higher Self are: Am I listening? Am I receiving? Am I available?

Imagine for a moment living into the energy and possibility of these questions?

What if everything really is working together for your good? What if all your needs were met? What would you be doing? What would you love? What if you could? Can you feel the expansive energy of these questions? Pain and conditions usually push us until a larger vision emerges and this energy pull us. Life is progressive. You are a unique expression of Divine Energy and IT delights in expressing its nature through you. So, why not ask empowering questions?

A powerful question I'd like to leave you with, one that you can ask yourself at every age and stage of life was posed by Howard Thurman: "Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive? Then go do it, because what the world need is people who have come alive."

Here's to a life that makes you come alive!

Blessings, Lynne
