Do some therapy on yourself and minimize your blocks now.
Nothing has the power to completely alter perspective and therefore your thoughts and actions and life quite like a question, or 25 healing Questions to ask yourself for that matter. Inquiry leads to understanding. The quality of the answers we arrive at, correspond directly to the quality of question we ask. The better the question, the better the answer.
One of the most important things to realize about a question is that a person learns far, far more from the process and work involved in answering a question than from the answer itself. This is why spiritual teachers throughout history have tended to pose so many questions to their students rather than to simply offer a direct answer. This is so that we can INTELLIGENTLY CONTEMPLATE what we are actually asking ourselves. The intellect only takes us half way. The mind is not enough and a sharp intellect seldom gets anyone anywhere decent. The intellect is only deigned to answer questions. But life is full of questions, and endless array of them, and very few questions are answered aside from the ones you need to survive. Mystery and thus belief or faith are as necessary to life as re-questioning our thought are. Yes, you need to re-question a ton of the answers your mind made up to help keep you safe. For example, “I need my mommy”, or “If he leaves me I will die”, or “I cant live without her” were all once very true for you. Today the need has changed. Adapted at the very least.
Requestioning who we are, what we think, feel and do is essential for anyone who wants to keep on growing to the best of their ability. We all thought we needed less questions and more answers right? Requestioning things brings perspective like no other therapy. It is like the truth itself, that sets you free from stuckness, confusion and even reduces that nagging sense of hopelessness that can haunt you at 3:30 am in the mornings. So here is a list of 25 healing Questions to ask yourself. Grab pen and paper and go for it. And yes, most healing is still done today with reading and writing. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
MindYoga : read the list of 25 questions. Contemplate some of them by thinking deeply about them. Re-questioning our thoughts is how we heal, grow and awaken to what really is.
- What do I really want for myself at this point in my life and why do I want it?
- What am I willing to struggle for?
- What specific risks am I willing to take to be happy?
- What do I want badly enough that I will say YES to any of the downsides that might come with that thing?
- What am I so committed to that no amount of failure could prevent me from continuing to do it or to aim for it?
- If I knew that life was not only roses, but also thorns, and I had to choose my thorns, what thorns would I choose… What pain will I choose or say YES to?
- Who do I feel I am meant to be in this life?
- What do I feel I am meant to do in this life?
- Imagining that I died yesterday, what would I regret? What things would I have done differently? What things am I glad that I did? If I got another shot at life and was brought back to life today, what would I now have the courage to do that I didn’t while I was alive? And what advice would I give to myself sitting right here in this chair today if after my death, I could come back to this moment?
- Who do I need to be to achieve my purpose?
- What do I not know?
- If I had all the money in the world and could never run out of it, what would I do with my time, energy and resources?
- What would I still do even if I never made any money doing it?
- What If I lost everything yesterday and so I no longer had anything to lose… What would I do if I had nothing to lose?
- What is the number one belief in my life that holds me back and prevents me from getting what I want in life?
- If I were to watch myself like a fly on a wall, based on what I am seeing relative to my thoughts, words, routines and actions, where can I expect to be in five years?
- If I knew that I was going to die one year from today, what would I do with that time?
- What gift am I meant to give this world in this life?
- What do I want people to say about me behind my back and how do I want to be remembered?
- If my six-year-old self could see me today, what would he or she think of me? What would he or she want me to change?
- What makes me forget to eat and sleep?
- When do I remember feeling the happiest in my childhood and why?
- What would I take a stand for and what would I take a stand against?
- What would I risk my life for and why?
- What about my life is worth smiling about right now?
