Our brains work a bit like Google - the questions you ask determine the answers you get.
If you ask 'how come I am so miserable?' or 'why do bad things always happen to me?!', the answers you get will probably be rubbish and make you feel awful.
If, on the other hand, you ask 'what can I be grateful about in this moment?', 'what is incredibly beautiful in my life right now?', or 'how can I relax and work at the same time?', then more useful answers will come to you.
This PDF contains the most powerful questions that I've come across in 7 years of exploration. Here's a few:
Suppose tonight while you sleep, a miracle happens. When you awaken tomorrow morning, what will you see yourself doing, or believing about yourself that will confirm that a miracle has taken place in your life? - this question immediately drops all of your barriers to achieving or having what you want. Now that you know this answer, all that is left is to take the steps towards making it happen.
To start & end your days feeling great, ask yourself the following questions:
1. What am I most happy about in my life right now? What about that makes me happy? How does it make me feel?
2. What am I most committed to in my life right now?
3. Who do I want to be today? What do I want to feel today?
4. What’s special about today?
5. What’s something beautiful that I can see today?
Questions to remain in the present moment:
1. What do I love about this moment? - Instead of forgetting the gift that each moment brings by worrying about success and failure, ask yourself this question and remember how filled with joy and love this very moment is! That way, you can never fail. Everything is already given.
2. How do I want to feel right now? - this question immediately re-centers you, and allows you to go within to see how you feel, and imagine feeling better. It can be useful in difficult situations when you have forgotten that you are control of your own feelings, and that no one can have an impact on your emotions unless you allow them to.
3. How can I let go and allow what I want to happen with less eﬀort? - this question turns the focus away from difficulty into effortlessness and flow. What if what you are doing can be done with a lot less effort?
