Why Do We Ask Why?

tn_peacefulquestionA reader asked me a very interesting question about the What Your Body Wants to Hear process. I thought it may be of interest to others. So here’s our conversation:-

“Hi Barbara,

I found your website which led me here. Your writing on how to Heal Your Relationship with Money really impacted me. One area I don’t quite understand is the “why” questions…Can you share why ask “why”.

Thank you again for such beautiful writing/work!”

“Hi,

Thank you for getting in touch and for your kind words.

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. I hope this helps.

Thank you so much for your interest. I’d love to hear how you get on and if you feel the difference when you say “Why” statements rather than jump to positive affirmation. Blessings, Barbara”.

“I did feel the difference and this makes perfect sense! Thank you so much! Many Blessings to YOU!”

I invite you all to try it out for yourselves. Do you feel the difference?

I also invite you to submit any questions you may have here on my blog or on our Beyond Affirmations Facebook page.

Namaste,

Barbara
