How to Ask a Question of Life
There are often questions we have that just seem unanswerable. It can seem as if there just isn’t anyone to ask who knows all the details or really understands – and really? There isn’t. No single person can see your situation perfectly from your point of view.
However! Your own life can! It knows the situation from all angles including the ones you haven’t thought of yet. They’re just there, waiting to be seen. You could say that that’s actually what life’s about – answering our questions. We usually just aren’t aware of it.
So how do you begin to see these answers? First you have to ask. Then pay attention to what’s around you.
You see them by getting very specific about what you want to know about, and then paying attention to what happens next. You can even take part in this synchronicity in the making by giving it a helpful nudge by putting yourself in an environment full of stimulation.
In fact, you can even just turn the radio on, or flip to a page in any book – especially a book you find meaningful or is an old favorite.
Notice what you notice – that’s the whole point. It may seem like an obvious thing that you’d notice whatever it is that pops up immediately, of course you would – it’s actually that easy, we just tend to disregard it as too easy. It’s not. It’s life – your life.
Imagine your life is playing charades with you – and it wants you to win. The players are the visions and sounds set before you for the next five minutes or for as long as you pay attention. You hold the question, your life holds the answer – and it’s giving it to you.
In fact, your life is giving you answers all the time! It’s up to you to receive them. Notice what you see and hear, and in particular notice how you feel when you do. Guts, heart, deja vu and even a jolt or sinking sensation are not uncommon when you sync up with one of life’s answers.
Give it a try! You’ve got nothing to lose :)
If you’ve done this once or a thousand times and would like to share your experiences, feel free to comment and join the conversation! Your words may just be someone’s answer ;)

I asked the question — what is my life work? And opened for the answer … and Lissa showed up, speaking all that I know and believe..(thank you for sharing that video) Okay, now what is the next step, how do I step into sharing this for my life work?
Hugs to all especially All That Is
My sense is this is a question you’ve been asking yourself for a long time now, while doing other things. Who’s to say you’re not already sharing this for your life work, simply being who you are and carrying the resonance in your heart wherever you go and in whatever you do?
Everyone’s answer to this is different. No one can tell you who you are or how to shine that forth…it’s something you discover for yourself over time, and you do so with the listening :)
Listening can go through all kinds of periods of activity and non – resting and acting, it’s cyclical in nature just like the earth and her seasons. Sometimes it’s the perfect time to be with others…other times you just need rest. Sometimes you need help, sometimes you just need to be left alone.
Becoming aware of those natural rhythms so you can step in time with them would be the ‘next step’ if I had to make a guess. Listen for the constant whisper (your guidance never leaves you, nor the rhythm – it can only be drowned out), then go where you feel led :)
