“Courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding your whole life.” ― Shannon L. Alder

Few things are a more powerful catalyst to change our state of consciousness than questions.

When was the last time you’d been asked a question that altered your perspective or helped you understand yourself better? Can you remember what that question was? How did it make you feel to be asked that question? What did you experience while answering it?

The questions you ask yourself reflect the quality of life you have.

If we continually ask why our lives are so miserable, we will get answers that mirror our questions. These types of constricting and draining questions only perpetuate the current state we are in.

If we want to begin changing how we feel, we want to begin doing the opposite, which is by asking expansive questions that allow us to see different perspectives than what we can see currently.


Examples of expansive and perspective-altering questions are:

  • If I felt fully loved and supported right now, what would I do in this moment?

  • What decision feels most expansive, unknown, and aligned?

  • If I had no fear, what would I feel, and what would I do?

  • What is my intuition telling me in this moment?

  • If Unconditional Love were a person, what would it tell me in this moment? (A simpler way to phrase this is: What would Love say right now?)

Choose the question that you naturally gravitate to most and ask yourself it right now, and wait for the answer. Don’t let your inner critic or ego answer the question. If it tries to answer, gently ignore it and wait for the answer that comes from beyond the negative chatter in your mind.

The answer that comes from beyond the ego is called many things like the soul, intuition, God, Higher Self, or Universe. You can call it whatever you like, but the common thread is that it is beyond our personal fear-based mind.

This is the soft voice that gently guides you through life with answers that are aligned with who you truly are. It is the voice of peace. Listening to this voice is what allows us to live a life full of love, joy, and abundance. It’s the part of us that knows what we desire deep within our soul and contains the best versions of ourselves within it.

You know this voice, but have probably become more familiar with the negative chatter in the mind. It’s time to become reacquainted with your own intuition and soul. Knowing the difference between those two voices in the mind will make a world of difference for you from now on. The simplest way to know the difference is by tuning in to how each voice feels.

Energy doesn’t lie.

Your intuition will feel light, expansive, unknown, and aligned. Your ego will feel draining, heavy, constricting, and full of fear. Your intuition is always speaking; you just have to listen :)

With All My Love,
