Here’s a simple process you can play with to easily get answers to them, even the important ones. Maybe you won’t get answers all of the time, but you will some of the time, and sometimes they are so profound you can hardly believe they came to you so easily.
(And no, the process isn’t channeling, even though I’m about to open my story with that.)
A Question Asked
Over the holidays, as part of my decision to stay in touch with my intuitive side as much as possible, I decided I would channel on a regular basis. (When I first learned to channel I did it every day for months. But that fell off as it got to where I didn’t “have” to do that anymore, and could always connect at will even with longer gaps in-between).
If you’ve ever channeled or even participated while someone else is channeling, you know that during the session you usually get into a slightly altered state. In this state, your questions suddenly become unimportant to you because you somehow know that all is well, or you at least get a different perspective on your life where you don’t feel as threatened or desperate, and you don’t feel a need for anything, including answers to your questions.
Sometimes, when I channel for myself, I simply forget my questions since I’m operating from a different part of my being than my rational.
So as I mulled over what questions I could ask that were relevant to my life (since those are the most powerful evokers of answers), one glaring question came to my attention.
It’s not really the point of this story but it was about betrayal, something that seems to be a pattern in my life. Betrayal (sometimes simply abandonment which is a form of betrayal) by best friends, by regular friends, by family members, by institutions, by the government, by the so-called justice system, etc. But big time, life-shaking betrayal. No matter how well I think I’ve processed through it, the pain of it periodically comes back to haunt me, sometimes at the most inconvenient or unexpected times. Well, I’d been grappling with it again over the holidays.
So I wrote it down on a sticky note:
And I went about my holiday break, fully intending to ask that the next time I channeled.
An Answer Revealed
Well, I didn’t channel over the next few days but I noticed that there were some thoughts that would appear in my mind now and then, usually when I was doing rather mindless things. An idea was developing, seemingly on its own and out of the blue.
By about the 3rd day I realized that not only was it a complete model that was presenting itself to me, but that it was in response to my question!
As soon as I realized this, I also felt guided to write it down, too; just like I had my question. It seemed to be a part of the process of earthing it, and bringing it fully into my life. Sometimes when I do a similar thing, the idea clarifies itself as I write, but in this situation that wasn’t necessary. It was all there, clear as day, right from the start … all fresh, and alive, and very very relevant.
Note: I can’t wait to tell you what the idea/model was that revealed itself. It so totally answered my question, and then some. In fact, just assimilating the answer completely processed the betrayals for me. And I haven’t looked back. So far, it just isn’t an issue anymore. (Of course it’s only been a few weeks, but still. It feels significantly different.)
However, as part of my new leaf, I don’t want my posts to get too long, so what was revealed to me will have to wait until another day. (Are you familiar with the acronym TL;DR? Too long; didn’t read. Gotta love it as I never read super long posts, and I sure don’t expect you to!)
The point of this post is not what I found out, but that if you present your question to the Universe, to Source, to your Higher Self — who or whatever that part of you is that knows the answer that is most appropriate for you to hear at this time — you’ll get an answer.
Get Answers With This Simple (Yet Powerful) Process
There are lots of ways to do it but I am especially enamoured by this one right now.
Here it is:
1. Do you have a burning question right now? One that you really want an answer to? See if you can clarify what it is.
2. Write it down. This is optional but is helpful in the beginning. Just make sure you do something to explicitly ask it, though.
3. Pay attention. See what unfolds. The answer may be prompted by things in your environment (anything from normal, everyday activities to unusual “signs”), or it may simply be whispered to you in your mind or heart. It may come quickly or over the period of days or weeks.
4. Acknowledge the answer. Appreciate it. Apply it.
It’s deceptively simple. Don’t let that persuade you that it can’t do heavy lifting.
I used this process a few more times over my break and again got really great answers, and some very quickly. And the best thing about them is that they were more about teaching me to fish than feeding me one, you know? In other words, I was given a new way of seeing or thinking instead of just one answer to get me by until next time.
Pretty cool if you ask me.
I’d love to hear if you’ve ever tried this. Or if you’re willing to try it and report your results. Or maybe you have a better, easier way to get answers?
