A couple of weeks ago I started a personal inquiry process to begin “living the questions,” I began with the question Who am I right now? Since then I’ve brought the question out of my pocket at least a dozen times. I mean that literally. I wrote it on a little sticky and carried it in my pocket. It continues to bring me back to the present, to a deeper sense of authenticity as I live it. I noticed I want to share the process with others, so I’m calling it the Juicy Question Collection Project and inviting everyone to chime in. I’ll keep posting my question and yours and we’ll see what we learn together.
Juicy Question Two: What am I believing right now? To get the best traction, I’m going to a place where I feel stuck. I have a couple (or more) areas I can find more than a little stuckness, but the one that shows up as a guide multiple times a day is mindless eating. What am I believing when I reach out to food to reduce the feeling of stress? As I work with myself, just as I do with clients, I notice that finding these beliefs takes practice, but then it’s easier. I have a top ten list of beliefs that cause me to leave the moment and reach out for “comfort.” Here’s number one: There’s not enough (time, not enough of me, you name it).
So many questions come flooding in about this one belief, but just for now, I’m living this one. Adding it to my collection by jotting it down and then living into question.
What’s on your top ten? What other questions show up for you? Let’s begin together to live the questions.
