(Part – 1)
Asking the right questions creates a quality life filled with what it is that we desire. They direct our mental focus (your intentions) which determines how we think and feel. Asking the HOW and WHY creates a subconscious collaborative effort with the mind which has access to energetic depths and dimensions you may not be connecting to on a conscious level. This is similar to Noah St. John’s work on “afformations” in asking “Why?”
The difference sometimes comes down to the questions you are consistently asking yourself. Are your questions disempowering? Why does this happen to me? Why can I not catch a break? How are they able to get away with that and I cannot? Your brain will look for the solutions and answers even if it’s not correct just to match the vibrational frequency that you are emitting which unfortunately is of lack and limitations. This is where things or your experiences will show up as low self-esteem, you’re undeserving, not worthy, not tall enough, short enough, big enough, thin enough, smart enough, you picked the wrong field, the wrong spouse, etc.
However, if you ask the right questions such as how can I be a contribution to others? Why do I know collaborating with others is the best journey for me? How can I achieve saving $500,000 a year over the next 10 years with ease and success? If you are more comfortable with $50,000 a year then start there. The same is true if you are wanting to achieve saving $1 million dollars a year. Remember, the dollar amount is all in where you are currently at and based on how you FEEL! Why are my products and services desired and purchased by everybody? Where do I receive financial freedom? How do I receive love? Why is my heart so open and joyously connecting with phenomenal people who are like-minded and heart-centered? The key is develop a model or pattern of questions that empower you regardless of what you see around you or may be currently experiencing in your life. This enables the subconscious mind to become collaborative and it will search for answers and solutions that mirror your vibrational energy the same as before only now this is one of hope, desire, possibility and for the highest-good of others. It’s a win-win and the Universal energy loves to support a collaborative effort for the highest good for others just like electricity, indoor plumbing, the automobile, the telephone, internet and so forth. Remember to phrase your questions as if it has already happened NOW!
Below is a list of 7 basic questions (Tony Robbins questions on “What” and “HOW” with NLP) to start with if you want to positively change your life. I love to use these for asking questions with retraining and collaborating with the subconscious mind. This will provide you a higher vibration energy on creating lasting change in your cherished life beginning today, right now! Grab your journal and let’s get started …
- What am I most happy about in my life right now? What about that makes me happy? How does that make me feel?
- What am I most excited about in my life right now? What about that makes me excited? How does that make me feel?
- What am I most proud about in my life right now? What about that makes me proud? How does that make me feel?
- What am I most grateful about in my life right now? What about that makes me grateful? How does that make me feel?
- What am I enjoying most in my life right now? What about that do I enjoy? How does that make me feel?
- What am I most committed to in my life right now? What about that makes me committed? How does that make me feel?
- Who do I love? Who loves me? What about that makes me loving? How does that make me feel?
If you really want to create a shift in your life you need to make this a part of your daily ritual just as brushing your teeth and bathing before you leave the house. As you consistently begin asking these basic questions, you’ll find that you’ll access your most empowering emotional states on a regular basis and you’ll begin to create mental pathways to health, happiness, excitement, bliss, pride, gratitude, joy, peace, commitment and love.
This will direct your focus (energy flows where ones focus goes) and increase your vibrational energy on what you want and desire through what is called gratitude for what you already have right now. Your feelings are an intangible form of energy and is one of the most powerful forms you emit every moment of the day.
This will lay your solid foundation to build on. It will provide you the insight of where you are, what you may need to change or modify and where to put your focus. Remember the basics of indoor plumbing, kitchen appliances, the air you are breathing, the ability to navigate physically regardless of a disability and all of the other basic essentials due to the mere fact that YOU ARE ALIVE right NOW needs to be recognized with heartfelt sincerity.
This is what it means to have gratitude. This energy of appreciation is necessary and needs to be brought forth and acknowledged for the simplistics of ease in your life today for everything you have and use. I know some of the simplistics seem silly but remember it was just a little over a 100 years ago that most of what you enjoy today without even giving it a thought was merely just a desire by others who came before you.
If you aren’t able to access the true depths of sincere gratitude then try going without using your electricity for a full day, the internet, your cell phone, texting, your automobile or public transportation, your washer and dryer; and so forth.
You’ll want to work on this everyday for the next several days before you go onto creating the ultimate vision for your cherished magnificent life. This will allow the subtle shifts to occur in raising your vibrational energy.

Now we are going to discover what your passion in life is. What are you passionate about? What keeps you up at night thinking, planning and doing with sheer excitement? What gets you jumping out of bed in the morning with enthusiasm to start your day? Before you answer these questions it’s important to note that the one trait that all successful, fulfilled people have is a passion and enthusiasm for life! You need a compelling vision for your life, one so powerful that it will push you to do whatever it takes to achieve it.
This is finding your WHY? What brings you joy and fulfillment? And in this, you’ll discover your purpose. You’ll identify the one unique gift and talent that only YOU possess and the reason you are here.
Okay, so to create YOUR ultimate vision you need to spend a couple of hours to a full day in an environment that you won’t be interrupted and in a space or place that inspires you such as an art or sculpture museum, a park, the beach, ocean, a river or lake. A place and space that enables you to relax, breathe and to be in a state of awe. Do you know where that space or place is? Write it down. When can you take the time (this week) to go there? Schedule it and so it is done! Be sure to bring your journal with you!!!
After spending some quiet time there, you want to grab your journal and answer these very basic questions below. Be sure to journal anything that came for you such as inspiration, ideas, feelings or repetitive images. Again, this is you building your solid foundation to build on and grow from.
If all of a sudden money was not an issue for you and you had the energy and vitality of a child to begin your journey anew without fear, what would your life be about? What does that vision look like? Or better asked, what do you want to be and do when you grow up?
- What do you want to create in life?
- What does it look like? Feel like? What do you see, hear, taste and feel? Describe it in detail!
- Where is it? Where are you living?
- What do you want to be, give, feel or share?
- What challenges would you be excited to conquer and overcome?
- What do you want to contribute to your own life and positively to the lives of others?
- What are you really good at?
- What excites you when you are doing it?
- Why are you doing this? What are the benefits to yourself and others?
It’s really important to FEEL emotionally with your mind and body this vision to the fullest as if it has already been created and you are living it right now! This is the intangible forms of energy working collaboratively on your behalf with the Universe.
By experiencing this desire with your feelings, you will create a constant focus continually reminding you what it is that you are committed to creating in your life, business or career. Write out EVERYTHING you SEE and FEEL in detail! This is your true desire so be sure you’re experiencing complete fulfillment emotionally, mentally, physically, spiritually and financially.

Next comes the focus, organization, planning and details of your vision. This is getting you from where you currently are to where you want to be. This is where you add specific details that are measurable results of what you are going to achieve in your life. What are your goals? Within one month — by six months — by one year — by three years — by five years and so forth.
Remember, you’re young, money is not an issue, there is no fear and you can do, be and have ANYTHING that YOU DESIRE!
Capture your ideas, meetings, communications and results that need to be accomplished. This step is getting the ideas out of your head and putting them onto paper as quickly as possible. Allow this to be exciting and to feel good. This is your planning and organizing stage. This is organizing your thoughts! Create a mind-mapping picture of what to do, the departments, duties, etc. Here’s where you commit to blocks of time to work on specific outcomes. Once you’ve created the blocks of time now you need to schedule it. These are the things that must happen at a specific time related to your vision such as meetings, classes, gathering information, purchasing property, etc.
Ask yourself …
- What do I want?
- What is my outcome?
- What specific results do I want to achieve?
- Why do I want it?
- What’s my purpose? What is my motivation?
- What is my plan of action to get it done? Provide details and deadlines!
- Who can help me? Whose done this successfully before that I can ask questions?
- What can I do within the next 48 hours to initiate the energy of movement in this?
Here’s where you want to print or cut out pictures and words that inspires you or describes your vision. What song would be the theme song of your life? Remember, you are just beginning in life. It’s not what it is or how it was, it’s this is what it’s going to be!
Doodle, draw, paint, color; be creative with it as there is no right or wrong way to describe your ultimate vision. Surround yourself with pictures, drawings, memento’s, sounds and words that gives you the FEELING of having already achieved it right now!
You are the co-creator with the Universe and whatever it is that your true heart desires WILL come into fruition.
Now it’s time to CELEBRATE! Whether it’s just completing the thought of plan, doing what you committed to do within 48 hours, scheduling the meetings, calling those you would like to collaborate with or those you can learn from, etc. it’s now time to CELEBRATE! It’s essential to celebrate every victory regardless of how small or big. Again, this is emitting those high vibrational FEELINGS of EMOTIONS that will co-create with you and the Universe; and ultimately, get you there!!
I hope you are willing to take this month to commit to discovering your passion and purpose. These are just a few of the fundamental basic building blocks to creating your ultimate vision and Living the Life of YOUR Dreams with Passion!
