Better Questions for the Vibe
A quick peek at my in-box would reveal a variety of questions from clients and readers that go something like:
- “Why is this such a struggle?”
- “How come this works for everyone but me?”
- “Why am I so stuck?”
- “What’s taking so long?”
I wish I were exaggerating, but these are typical questions from some of my favorite folks. Not hard to imagine how a person might come to feel like they need help after pointing themselves in this direction, huh?
Because we get what we vibrate, and because these questions reveal vibrations ranging from frustration to despair, you can see how the good stuff can’t make its way in under these circumstances.
We gotta raise the vibe before we can expect anything good to happen.
And Coach Suzanne Hansen recently shared a powerful way to do that – by asking new questions.
(I’d heard of afformations before, but never played with them until now. Thanks, Suzanne!)
Afformations are new questions that allow you to better align with the results you want. Noah St. John says they’re more powerful than regular affirmations because they don’t trip up the conscious mind (which rejects statements that aren’t true) and because they cause your mind to focus on what you want.
Plus, our brain tends to fill in the gaps of missing information, so we’ll start finding answers to any question we ask.
I’m a huge fan of regular old affirmations, but I gave these a try because of Suzanne’s enthusiasm. And now I understand why she was so excited!
Here are some of the questions I started entertaining:
- How did I get to be such a great writer?
- Why am I so happy?
- How did I get so thin?
- Why am I so RICH?
- Why do I have such a great life?!
And seriously … you guys wouldn’t believe the upgrade my days have been experiencing since then! (And they were pretty good to start with!):
Two of my foster kitties were adopted together yesterday!
I wore a skirt to a wedding that got rejected for the last formal event because it was a little snug around the hips. This time it was like my big sister stretched it out in advance! (And I don’t have a big sister!) I also noticed less jiggle the next day. Huh. Now I’m paying attention.
I delivered a draft article to my editor ten hours before deadline! (That’s unheard of for me.)
You money mojo folks who said you wanted to pay after the event – man, you are really rolling the dough my way! I can’t say I didn’t expect that, but honestly – it’s very cool!
Today as I started a fabulous day with several things “supposedly” not going my way (appointment reschedules and cancellations and such), I imagined this is what it must be like on ecstasy or something, because I was on cloud nine for no reason other than it was a gorgeous Monday and there were fresh strawberries in the refrigerator.
Seriously, I smiled and waved at construction workers in traffic. I waved people in who were trying to merge in my lane. I rolled down the window to chat with a nice lady who was looking at my dog in the car. And I’m drug-free!
And guys, I’m just getting started with these! Just wait till I come up with even BETTER questions!
In fact, how about we share some with each other now? Let’s create a nice bank of powerful questions to entertain! I’ll start us off with a few from this guest post by Noah St. John:
- Why do I lose weight so easily?
- Why am I so enchanting?
- Why am I allowed to do, be and have all that I want in life?
Your turn, everyone! What are the questions that line YOU up with what you want most in life?!
Can’t wait to hear them and try some out myself!
