The Power of Your Inquiry

On my journey of awakening I realised the power of my inquiry, and the response, for me. Have you seen this, for you?

There’s something I noticed… there’s noting more powerful than having your question responded to directly. There’s nothing more powerful than being asked a question directly, for you, and looking and responding, for you.

I remember being in nondual community groups, reading inquiry transcript books, watching inquiry videos and feeling like I ‘got it’. I could resonate with the person’s experience and then, as the guide or teacher responded, I would nod along in agreement. Feeling like I could totally see the truth of it all, and I would be totally agreeing with the guide or teacher.

Only to then find myself caught up in confusion and feeling the discomfort of identifying with something I am not.

And then seeing myself asking almost the very same question I’d been nodding along to the answer for just hours or days before.

Or sometimes I would follow the beginning of an inquiry or exploration, but then have a different question to the one presented in the book or video, and feel like I needed to ask that question before I could continue my thread of inquiry.

And then I noticed, this is where the greatest power is.

When I was in direct contact with a guide on a call — or even just in comments in a post — my experience was entirely different.

It was like the whole thing landed more deeply.

It was as though the question had to come from within me, and be responded to within me, with direct guidance or pointing or asking from the guide, for me.

I’ve noticed it as a guide too. The seemingly same question can be responded to quite differently. It’s like there’s an energy in the questioner which leads to a certain response in that moment for that person.

And so, to me, this is where the power is. This is where the recognition really happens. This is how we go deeper in seeing who we really are, rather than nodding along and then forgetting just moments later.

The power is in your question, and the response — for you — in that moment.

Do you want this?

If you do Sara and I would LOVE to be your partners in that. Get in touch with us here so we can talk options.

With peace, love and joy, Helen

    My work involves exploring with people who are on the awakening and enlightenment journey. They’ve already seen a lot but they can also feel that their understanding is more conceptual than felt, and lived. They can feel that there is more to be seen and understood and yet they also don’t know how to ‘get at’ that. I focus on this shift from conceptual into the deeper, felt understanding of it.
