Are You Asking the Right Questions?

Asking the right questionsHave you ever gone looking for an answer to something and no matter what you do, where you look or what you meditate on the answer never comes?

If this has ever happened to you (or is happening now) you might want to ask a different question; Maybe the question you’re asking isn’t really yours!

Now you might be wondering what I mean by “is (are) the question(s) really yours?” What I’m asking you to ask yourself is where are your questions coming from?

Are you asking questions out of habit? Is there programming in place that causes you to ask certain questions or go on a quest to find answers for someone (like a friend or family member) other than yourself?

As an aside, it’s also possible you are receiving answers to the questions you are asking but you don’t necessarily recognize that no answer is THE answer. A perfect example is if you are constantly asking yourself “what is wrong with me?” and you don’t get an answer. Could it be that you’re not receiving an answer because there’s NOTHING wrong with you? Yes, dear ones, in the world of “everything is energy” no answer might actually be THE answer!

If at first you don’t succeed…

When asking questions simply ask a question then allow it to lead you to another question and then another. You may find that when you allow your questions to lead you to other questions your next question might answer to your previous question!

If the same question keeps coming up over and over or you find yourself stuck or in effort, make it a point to change the question. For example if you’re asking why this or that is happening (or hasn’t happened) to you or for you, change the question to “what do I need to clear to create space or raise my having-ness” to move forward?”

This is where you might notice the question wasn’t yours in the first place. Try not to judge whatever comes up for you. Just notice your energy and your thoughts. As spiritual seekers looking to heal, whether you like the answer or not, you are receiving valuable information.

Ask the right questions and the answers find YOU!

All healing starts with not only asking the right questions but continually asking questions. In the grand scheme of things, you don’t know what you don’t know (none of us do) and how will you find out if you don’t continually ask questions? When you ask the right questions the answers WILL find you. Allow your answers to come without expectation OR resistance.

It’s best to be open, in neutral and set your intention to accept the answers even if you don’t necessarily like what they are. If an answer doesn’t seem to come or you feel stuck in a never-ending loop of asking the same question over and over, check to see where the question is coming from or if it’s even yours.

If it’s not yours, let it go and ask a different question. If it IS yours and you’re still stuck, look within to see 1. if you already have the answer but haven’t acknowledged it yet and 2. if you’re asking a question directly related to what it is you really want know. It might be that you’re afraid to ask because you’re afraid of what that answer might be.

When you ask the right questions, you will receive answers. You may find that your question keeps leading you back to you because really, you already have your answers. Your answers live in your heart, your mind and your curious spirit. Look inside! You have a treasure trove of answers just waiting for you!~Shine Your Light Debbie

Are you Embracing ALL of You?

To truly BE who you are it’s important to embrace ALL of who you are!

Fact: Love, joy, happiness, and passion are energy vibrations.
Fact: Boredom, apathy, sadness and ANGER are energy vibrations.

Can you have and embrace ALL of those emotions and feelings; The good the bad and the ugly? The positive AND the negative?

As human beings we have a full spectrum of emotions, feelings and energy vibrations that are not only a part of us but a part of being human. Denying, ignoring or stifling any of these vibrations limits you and in essence you are denying a part of yourself and the human experience. While it is true that as spiritual beings we are pure love, we took a body this lifetime to have a human experience and no matter how much you don’t want it to happen the fact remains that as humans we get angry, sad, bored, apathetic etc.

Most of us are taught not to get angry and to forgive those who have treated us badly. Forgiveness is wonderful BUT forgiving doesn’t mean allowing someone to treat you like a doormat or invalidate you. You cannot control what others say or do but it IS ok to get angry! It is also OK to use your anger as a healing. Here comes the tricky part; Allowing your anger to flow in YOUR space without lashing out or sending it out to someone.

Allowing your anger, or any other emotion or feeling for that matter, to flow through you is empowering. Giving yourself permission to have these perceived negative feelings is a step toward growing and expanding positive feelings and emotions like love, joy and happiness. The reason I used anger as an example is because it is one of the emotions that many people have very little permission to have. For you it may be some other emotion.


We all want to keep our focus on love and light and being happy (at least I’m in hopes that all of you reading this want those vibrations in the forefront) but the laws of nature need balance. ALL your emotions whether in the emotional body (energetic) or the physical body serve a purpose. From a young age boys are taught not to cry and girls not to get angry (or whatever else you were taught to stifle) but denying a part of you denies a portion of the other part. There is always a dichotomy and you can’t have one without the other. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Newton’s laws apply here too!

There is day and night, two sides to every coin, and a plethora of emotions & feelings each with a direct opposite that make up our very BEing-ness. Having your awareness and embracing those dark or negative parts of you in addition to light and love gives you the ability to expand your human experience.

You cannot, nor is it necessary to, control what you are feeling. If you are doing this you are in resistance and it’s going to fester and may ever cause you to get stuck. Allow feelings & emotions to bubble up and BE. Feel your feelings & emotions, embrace them,  acknowledge them then release. Believe it or not the more you embrace and acknowledge what you are feeling the faster you are able to release it!

Embracing your anger and acknowledging it allows you to love that much more. Feeling your sadness allows you to experience more happiness. Having a good cry makes the laughter that much more joyful. Embrace the reality of human experience! HAVE all that you are! BE who you are! Accept and acknowledge ALL your feelings and emotions as a part of you!~Shine Your Light Debbie
