A profound way to kick-start our personal healing is to begin to ask questions. Asking questions inherently shifts the balance of power from outer structures to our inner ones. It re-empowers us. It re-engages us.
Asking questions is an act in itself. We must let go of the idea – the naïve assumption – that when a question is asked, an answer must immediately come.
As we begin to ask the big questions like, “Do things need to be this way?”, “What can I do to help?”, “Are there other options?”, and
“What have I been doing to hinder?”, we plant a seed for discovery. We are actually asking our own unconscious minds – and the collective unconscious mind – to awaken to deeper truths and more expansive awarenesses of good.
When I work one-to-one with individuals in Coaching and Healing sessions, I often ask questions which puzzle them. I then explain that these are ‘seed questions’ – questions which will evoke new ways of thinking, new ways of being, new ways of perceiving.
