Do You Ask the “What If” Question?
The energy of possibility is far stronger and more exciting than when we are talking about our issues. Have you ever noticed how you feel when you get stuck in negative thoughts? When you are thinking or talking about your issues you become inward focused, and so does your energy. When fear, doubt or worry become the focal point, it is easy to get sucked into a downward spiral that works to keep you stuck.
Granted, this is not where we want to be, yet we all find ourselves there from time to time. When you recognize that you are stuck, that awareness is 80 % of the making a change. After all, nothing can be changed unless there is recognition of it.
Thinking about what is possible is one way to change the energy and look beyond the issue. Begin this by asking a what if question?
- What if everything is working together for my good?
- What if all the negative things I think about myself, simply are not true?
- What if all my needs were being met? What else might be true?
Asking what if, begins to open your thinking to a story that is larger than your own. It helps you to think beyond your own limits and into a world of possibility. But mostly, you will begin to notice and expect to see the small miraculous parts of life that are there for you every day.
I want to leave you with one of my favorite quotes:
When your life is filled with the desire to see holiness in everyday life, something magical happens: ordinary life becomes extraordinary, and the very process of life begins to nourish your soul. ~Rabbi Harold Kushner
