What If You Aren’t Asking the Right Questions?
Why low quality questions will give you poor quality answers back (duh!)
Eight years ago, I discovered (the tough way) that when it came to achieving goals and manifesting experiences I truly wanted, I was frequently (and inadvertently) activating the vibration of lack instead of activating the vibration of my soul’s desires.
It was easy to predict the result if the one leading the story was the idea of lack of any kind, although I didn’t see it that clearly back then.
The outcome was more often than not, the result didn’t match my desires… but nevertheless, it matched (perfectly, I have to say), my predominantvibration.
I’ll share with you in a moment, one of the simplest and most practical resources I have in my tool-belt, to activate the right frequency when it comes to manifesting your desires.
I discovered it almost a decade ago and still use it to this day to shift gears and activate within a matching frequency with the one of my desired experience.
But first, since whoever is talking about «vibration», «frequency» and «energy” without being a scientist, is very rapidly confused with an ultra-spiritual-new-agey-fan (which depending on your definition, I might also be), let me quote for authority purposes related to the subject of energy, and to bring some interesting and useful concepts to the table, someone who has been called “One of the most profound integrative thinkers of our day.”.
Richard Barret is a British author who writes about leadership, leadership development, values, consciousness as well as cultural evolution in business and society.
This excerpt belongs to his book «The Metrics of Human Consciousness»:
“«The limitations of our senses.»
Why are we not more aware of our four-dimensional energetic reality? The answer is simple.
We are not aware of it because of the limitations of our physical senses. Just as the being living in two-dimensional awareness could not sense height, we as three-dimensional beings only have a vague awareness of the four-dimensional energetic world of our souls.
We have five physical senses which we use to inform
us of what is happening in the physical world around us.
Everything we can personally know about our external physical world is experienced through these senses.
However, the physical senses that the human species (and all other creatures) have developed are extremely limited in terms of the frequencies of vibration that we can sense, and consequently are at odds with much of what science tells us.
There are vast ranges of sound that we cannot hear, and there are vast ranges of radiation we cannot see or feel. It is as if we are trapped within a body that only allows us to experience a very small part of reality, the three-dimensional world of physical forms.
The truth is we live in a multi-dimensional energetic world, but because of the limitations of our senses, we only perceive three of these dimensions. Thus, we can state that three-dimensionality and physical form are not properties of the world, but are properties of
Everything in our physical universe is composed of matter, and at the same time is contained within an energy field that is “invisible” to our physical senses.”
According to his perspective, nobody can escape the “energy world” even if they consider «vibration and stuff» to be too new agey for their taste.
Keep Barret’s concepts in mind while we go back to my story from eight years ago.

You might relate to this pattern I detected in my behavior:
- I wanted something with all my heart.
- I aligned and infused my actions towards the materialization of that desire, from a very intense and precise state of being.
- I used imagination daily to connect to my desire already being a done deal.
- I felt super excited, and giggly just thinking about it (for a while).
- I kept my focus on the ecstatic feeling, connecting and acting upon my desire.
- Since we live in a physical universe — and the illusion of linear time is active — there’s a time/process to everything. So time started to pass by and… sooner than later I began to feel anxious and questioning if/when that what I wanted, was ever going to happen.
BOOM!!! I started to feel discouraged and went on a downward spiral.
The moment I started doubting, excitement began to go down, and my disbelief went up.
As a defense mechanism, I chose many times to settle and change my focus towards desiring something else.
Something “more viable and possible,” according to my belief system of the moment.
Then, the pattern started again… although with a different target.
Have you ever lived anything similar (give or take)?
What to do when you feel you’re living a Groundhog day?
Break the spell!
The Tool that will help you activate the vibration of your soul’s desires
I’ll give you a clue.
The tool that will help you activate the vibration of your soul’s desires as opposed to activating the vibration of lack has to do with the headline and subheadline of this post.
“What If You Aren’t Asking the Right Questions?” and “Low quality questions will give you poor quality answers back.”
«Powerful Questions» are the mighty tool to recover the focus, re-direct the energy and connect to the field of infinite possibilities.
Did you know that the way in which survey questions are asked can affect the final results? (Politicians and Corporations know this pretty well btw).
A biased question is a question worded in such a way that a particular answer is favored over others, without the respondent even being aware of it.
This response is the reflection of a state of being generated by the oblivious positive or negative connotation, automatically given by our beliefs to the question being asked.
By the same token than in a survey, the questions you ask yourself have a direct impact on the response patterns you will create for yourself without even noticing.
Also, they will modify your vibration from which you’ll generate the perspectives you will be using to interpret the data and feedback from your circumstances.
Knowing all this…
What if in the face of a goal we want to achieve, we choose questions that raise our frequency to the highest, so we keep ourselves in an upward spiral of excitement?
What if we use wording the invites us to consider the best possibilities and scenarios?
What if we create an inner clear sky, instead of a cloudy one?
If anyway, we don’t have absolute certainty on what’s going to happen, what if we choose whatever feels best here and now?
The more and longer we manage to stay aligned to the essence of our desires, and connected to the field of infinite possibilities, the more we add to that upward spiral — independent of how things will end up showing up in the physical world.
And the higher level we reach in that spiral, the more we connect to ideas, opportunities, and resources that vibrate at the same high vibration.
To begin any question with «WHAT IF» + an idea that triggers in us the frequency of exciting, joyful, light, empowering possibilities and scenarios, will help us maintain a higher vibration.
Even using neutral or amusing projections will be more helpful than using fatalist, cynical, self-deprecating, anxious, worried, uncomfortable or pessimistic ideas.
This exercise is not a simplistic “thinking positive” or “wishful thinking” one, but a deep and intense experience where science and spirituality meets.
So next time you find yourself blocked or anxious because you opened the box of doubts, judgments, and fears, try any of the following questions.
And HEY! If you come up with other «What ifs…» please, by all means, add a comment and let me know for Leo and I to try them!
Note: in the following questions, substitute «this» for whatever is relevant for you.
- What if this challenge is a joke?
- What if this circumstance/person is a blessing?
- What if this is preparing me for something greater?
- What if this serves a greater purpose?
- What if this is my soul asking for something to be embraced?
- What if this is a mirror for me to see more?
- What if this is what I need to evolve to a next level?
- What if this is a surprise yet to be revealed?
- What if this is a loving invitation?
- What if this is part my excitement?
- What if this is my perfect path unfolding?
- What if this is nothing?
- What if this undesireable experience won’t matter a few months, weeks, days, hours from now?
- What if this is love talking?
- What if I use this as a stepping stone to jump from?
- What if this is just smoke and mirrors?
- What if I embrace this as a gift in disguise?
- What if I’m wiser than I think and I’m perfectly guiding myself?
- What if this hides the message I’ve been waiting for?
- What if circumstances begin to cooperate with me?
