Refining your Questions and Answers
How do we know what questions to ask?
Once we have the question, how do we know which answers are options?
When we have problems or concerns, we use the techniques of intuitive living to resolve these issues. Often we may have a question but no answers from which to choose. Being mindful and paying attention to life will show you the answers you need. These answers can come from anywhere; Friends and family, homeless folks, therapists and gurus, The TV/internet/movies, our thoughts, and even our dreams. The absolute perfect options for all of your concerns are always available IF you pay attention. The ways spirit/god/universe speaks to us are plentiful:
You are walking down the street thinking about whether you should quit your job as an au pair. You pass a bench with an ad for courses in welding. Most would walk right by and continue to perseverate about whether to keep their job or not. However, being committed to intuitive living, you would connect the thought you were thinking, and the information presented. Change jobs? An advertisement for welding? Hmmm? So we now have a question to ask—to weld or not? We proceed with the technique.
Do I have access to the information regarding whether I need to become a welder? If yes:
Am I genuinely detached from the answer? If not, do the work to see the perfection to either be or not to be a welder. Then ask the question.
Is it for mine, the planet’s, and all sentient beings’ highest good to pursue a career in welding?
If the answer is yes, move forwards and do not hesitate. Life will support your decision
One of my favorite ways of obtaining information when I have a question is using automatic writing. Now I am not talking about going into a trance and having some dubious spirit move through me and give me answers— just because someone is dead does not make them necessarily wise or useful.
The technique I prefer is to sit in front of my keyboard and pretend/imagine/relax into the feeling that there IS a part of me that IS the creator. I then ask the questions as the small me and answer as the creator. I let my fingers do the talking. What I write at that moment often may not make sense or sound contrived. However, when read later, the kernels of clarity become evident. Another way is to imagine if whatever higher being you believe in could answer your questions. What would they say?
When using this method, be aware that:
If it is not nice, it is not right:
Spirit will never speak in negatives!
Spirit will never order or command!
Spirit will never judge and will ALWAYS forgive!
Once you have obtained some possible answers to your questions then run them through the intuitive living algorithm.
This type of automatic writing can be a great source of useful information. However, it is pretty easy for the small “i” to sneak in its two cents. ALWAYS CHECK!
ANECDOTE: HOW I BECAME A PHYSICIAN
One of the pleasant consequences of intuitive living is that you are in “the flow.” When your goals/needs align with the needs of the many, the Universe/Creator will do whatever it takes to help you succeed. The fact that I was able to complete the journey to becoming a physician at my age and with my non-traditional life history was, at least to me, significant proof of the power and benevolence of the creator.
