So you know the importance of your thoughts in creating your life experience. And you know that if you could shift your thoughts effectively, you could feel better.

But… you sometimes feel like your brain is sabotaging you… always coming up with the worst-case scenario or jumping to the scariest conclusion, leaving you trembling in a corner somewhere.

Okay, that last part may be a little overly dramatic, but you get the gist.

Well, here’s a tip I ran across that I think might change things for you… for the better!

You can actually trick your brain into working for you in all its powerful, problem-solving glory. All you have to do is ask different questions. Higher quality questions.

Let me explain.

The universe (or source energy or God or whatever you’d like to call it) is always answering our questions. And our brains (or our egos or our rational minds or whatever you’d like to call it) are always answering our questions, too. They act sort of like interpreters for the universe.

So, whatever you ask, your brain will leap into action to find the answer. If you ask a question like: “Why does this kind of thing always happen to me?” or “Why doesn’t he love me anymore?”, the rational brain will start searching the “files” in your mind for anything that could be a potential answer. That means you are going to go down a path that is not going to feel good, right?

But… what if you changed those questions into ones that are actually empowering and cause your brain to search for an answer that will be of service to you?

Higher quality questions sound something like: “What can I learn from this?” or “How would unconditional love respond to this situation?”

Each and every life situation has a corresponding higher quality question (or set of questions) that could be asked… you’ll know when you’ve found the right one for your predicament when you feel instantly better, lighter, more expansive as you ask it of yourself.

Has this helped? In the comments below, share a situation from your life that could have been improved quickly and easily by asking a higher quality question. Were you able to come up with one?  If so, share that with us as well.

The more practice you can get with coming up with these higher quality questions, the better. And your experience can help others, too!
