A reader asked why we ask the “why?” questions in the What Your Body Wants to Hear Meditations. I explained the theory behind it in my blog post Why Do We Ask Why?. A few of you tried making a positive affirmation then asking a question and felt the difference in the energy between the two. People who initially thought it would be a negative thing tried it out and realised that far from being negative, it opens us up to the many blessings we actually do have in our lives. It helps us see what is going right for us. In the case of physical healing, it reminds us of all the parts of our bodies which are working beautifully.
The “Why” questions are a method of bridging from the releasing statements to the positive affirmations. It could otherwise be too large a jump for people to go straight in to really feeling the positive. It is also a way to get around the mind saying “yes but..” to a positive affirmation. There is a very different energy around the “Why” statements, try it for yourself, you will probably feel it. For example if you say “I am abundant” your mind will probably jump to the reasons you are not abundant, “I’ve got this debt/I haven’t got any money” that kind of thing. If on the other hand you say “Why am I so abundant?” the mind tends to go to the things you are abundant in, love, friends, pets, health etc. There is less resistance to the “Why” statements and they help to lead you in to the positive.
This video is a powerful illustration of what happens to the mind/body when you state something you don’t believe is true as opposed to asking a question.
Instead of fighting with our brains and bodies, let’s choose to work with them. As one lovely lady said after listening to the What Your Body Wants To Hear: Support Your Heart programme:-
“I’ve found out your work is not about trying to “overcome” something or even to heal something “wrong.” Your work is intended to promote well-being”.
She was absolutely right. All is well.
