“When you talk about what you want and why you want it, there’s usually less resistance within you than when you talk about what you want and how you’re going to get it. When you pose questions you don’t have answers for, like how, where, when, who, it sets up a contradictory vibration that slows everything down.” ~Abraham Hicks

Asking some of the journalistic questions (who, what, where, when, how) is second nature to me. I usually don’t ask why. Instead I substitute a what question for it. This is probably a result of my conditioning as a child. I can remember asking why for just about anything my mother would tell me to do, and why for anything and everything I could not understand. Eventually she would answer, “Why is a crooked letter. Stop asking.” And in time, I did stop asking why. Though I must say that my desire to want to know was never squelched.

When I meet someone I want to know all about them. Who, what, where, when, how questions inform me the quickest way.

When I was a recruiter in the Staffing industry, I found the journalistic questions to be the most valuable ones to ask in order to understand what candidates’ needs and wants were in order for me to be able to identify their ideal jobs; the clients who paid my fees for finding those candidates were subjected to those questions as well so that I could do a great job filling their job orders.

Now as a Life Coach asking my clients questions, who, what, where, when or how is how most of my sentences begin.

As I read the words for this month it hit me that my skill set and habit of asking who, what, where, when, how and leaving out asking why is getting in the way of me being more masterful at being a conscious creator. This has been a wake-up call. Lately I’ve begun the practice of describing a desire and then explaining why I want whatever it is.

How about you? Are you being meticulous by stating what you desire and why? Are you remembering to omit asking how, where, when, who? I’d like to hear from you about your
experiences.
