“If you want the answer—ask the question.”
~ Lorii Myers
This week’s energies support asking, and being in a space to receive answers.
Here are a couple of the techniques we’re using on Retreat to help get us into the asking and allowing space:
Hand on Heart
Stand or sit quietly for a moment and slow your breathing. Close your eyes and relax your body. When you feel calm, place your hand over your heart. Feel that connection to yourself, and ask your heart ‘What do I most need to know right now?’ Trust the answer you are shown.
Working with Cards
Choose your favourite oracle or tarot card deck. Think of a problem where you are seeking guidance or clarification as you shuffle the cards. Break the deck into three piles and turn the top card of each pile over. The first card gives insight into the situation as it is now. The second card shows the action step needed to help you resolve the situation. The third card gives insight into the potential outcome of the situation after applying the action step.
Ask for a Sign
Asking for a sign is about throwing your question open to the Universe. You can ask and then trust that the sign will make sense and be obvious to you. For example, I asked for a simple yes or no answer and a bus with the word YES in three-foot-high letters pulled in beside me so that the word YES filled my windscreen. Ask to see a specific image or thing, as acknowledgement of a question, or in answer to it. Perhaps you are driving and you ask to see a yellow car if the answer is yes. Or you ask to see a particular type of bird or something else you’ll recognise as being a sign. Stay open. Trust what you see.
Above all, use this week to work with your intuition. Know that if you ask, and allow, the answers will come.
Sending much love to you from Retreat,
