It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.
It is so natural to want concrete answers in life. Back when I was making my living doing private readings, that’s what most people came to me for: Directions, guidance, and ANSWERS. “Will so-and-so ask me to marry him? How will this business deal work out? When is my kid/mom/uncle/partner ever gonna straighten out their life??, When is he coming back?”
Boy, do I understand. Especially with so much uncertainty these days, everyone wants to know: “When will coronavirus get under control? Should I quit my job? Is my relationship with so-and-so gonna last when we can’t see each other?”
As humans, we have a natural desire for certainty. But that desire often handcuffs us, keeping us locked into a single way of seeing the world. There is so much more that Spirit has in store for us, but we can’t see it because we are so tied to our reality.
That’s why before we can talk about getting answers, we have to talk about asking the right questions.
In my readings, I’m a stickler about this. Ask a weak question, and you’re gonna have a weak reading. That goes for Oracle Card readings, and that goes for life, too!
Right now, there are a lot of people going around mumbling, “Why me? Why me?” and “Things are so bad, what’s the next bad thing that’s gonna happen?”
When you are asking those kinds of questions, guess what: You get what you ask for! If you’re asking “Why me,” your mind is gonna come up with 101 reasons how you screwed up, why your life sucks, and how it’s all your fault. If you ask, “What’s the next bad thing that’s going to happen,” you’re going to see your life through that lens. You’ll see how your tomato plants died, how your best friend forgot your birthday, how your boss at work spoke a little sharply during the last Zoom meeting. You go from zero to negative 100 in about 10 seconds flat because proof is all around you!
The crazy thing is, proof of the opposite is all around you, too. While some people are saying, “Why me?” others are asking, “How can I help? How can this work out for the highest good? How can I contribute?”
Now, I don’t want to be someone who is all kittens and rainbows and unicorn farts… I know that there is awful, horrible stuff going on. And I also know that what we concentrate on, grows. If we stay focused on the problem, all we see is the problem. If we focus on the solution and affirming that, we will discover solutions! And, if we open up our perceptions, we can see so, so much more. Focusing only on what is wrong, limiting our questions to the negative, will not empower us or serve us. It will not help us see new ways of becoming. We’ll just be stuck in the same old patterns and the solutions may be harder to discover.
