Questioning As Part Of The Spiritual Journey

questioningQuestioning has been a big part of my spiritual journey. Something that I have written about before in a couple of my blogs. Yet as I come to the end of my challenge I realise that asking questions has also been a key part of my whole life.

I had a lovely comment from Angela on yesterday’s blog. She said “How well you seem to understand yourself. It’s refreshing and honest. Reflecting on how we work must be the key to opening ourselves to new adventures and advances. I enjoy very much reading your blogs and insights.” As I wrote my answer it made me think about the all questioning I have done.

Here is what I said: Thank you Angela. I feel a key part of our spiritual development is the realisation that we have to become self-aware and self-reflective. The questions I have posed to myself in my blogs are all in an effort to understand what makes us successfully balance the Spirit Within with the human experiences we all have. It’s not an easy balance by any means. Our perceptions are distorted. This world is energetically demanding. And yet we can find hope and altruism all around us if we look. Especially if we take that new journey and connect with the non-physical beings who want to help and sustain us. I would encourage anyone who wants to develop their intuitive abilities to write, journal, diary. It’s very cathartic and enlightening.

I know that writing has been a big part of my life too. Daily journals and diaries, notebooks collected over years, scraps of paper with notes, quotes and jottings. Questioning myself, the world and the unknown. What I can see now is the gradual emergence of the Spirit Within. The unconditionally loving part that nudges me along the path to knowing myself more completely. A compassionate voice encouraging me to step through my fears and move forward being the best I can be. It’s there. Hidden in all of the words, thoughts and feelings. Each question another step in listening to and learning about myself.

Questioning is the way to evolution and enlightenment. My Guides say they always prefer goats rather than sheep. I haven’t followed blindly. I’ve been hard work a lot of the time. Yet I also know that I serve through what I do from the best possible of motive. I serve because it’s what I choose to do. Have you started asking questions yet? If so, also remember to write. The answers you get might surprise you.

Embraced! Questions Keeping My Mind Open And Receptive

EmbracedI’m working on my Oracle card set. Doing so I’ve realised that I have embraced such a lot of things I once questioned. Even the idea that randomly picking a card from a pile was a way to get my questions answered.

Yet that is what happens. I’ve used Tarot and Oracle cards for many years now. They give me an insight into the way the energy in and around me is flowing. And a long time ago I embraced the support these psychic tools can give me. I guess I could have stopped at that point when I felt that I had found a source of help. But some part of me still had questions. And I was determined enough to want answers. Looking at that search for answers it was about certainty. In an uncertain world I want to know that everything will turn out for the best. So I have continued to ask questions. With the realisation that the act of asking questions is only useful if I keep my mind open for the answers. Whether I like them or not.

I know it is easy to fall into seeing or experiencing my life only from one point of view. I ask questions to check in with how others see life. Because when I have embraced another world view I can update my understanding of what life is all about. Even of my self. And what I am about. Questions help me to know that I can grow, evolve, live different choices.  Questions can also shake me out of my certainty. I feel it’s good to have my views challenged. Because those views might actually be restricting my choices and keeping me from more love, joy and laughter.

When I have embraced the answers I’ve already received there will still be more questions. Life is a progression. A flow. Otherwise all I am doing is going through the motions. And forgetting to embrace all that life has to offer me. Not a pattern I want to encourage in myself. What questions are you asking?
