If you’ve ever tried to let go of a thought you were believing, you probably found it impossible. That’s because your beliefs sit deep inside you. They are not influenced by just wanting to let go.
There are two parts inside each of us in any stressful moment: a wise, mature part and an immature, crying baby. The wise part is impatient for the baby to stop crying. But you can’t make a baby stop crying. You have to listen to it, hold it, ask what’s going on.
When you ask questions to the crying baby inside, it starts to feel safe and can begin to communicate the issue. It feels heard. The wise part listens and takes notes. This is the beginning of trust and mutual respect. When everything has been said, the wise part asks the baby if it would like to question what it thinks.
When the crying baby inside you questions what it thinks, it starts to see things differently. It may find the same wisdom that the wise part in you saw all along, but it discovers it on its own. Or it may find even deeper wisdom than the conscious mind could see. This inner-discovery is what transforms the experience. This is meditation. It is where genuine letting go takes place. And it happens without forcing.
Once you see the value of respectfully asking yourself questions, the next question arises: what questions do I ask? Luckily, this is a well-travelled road by those of us who love The Work of Byron Katie (The Work). The Work consists of first asking the stressed mind what exactly is bothering it, then asking four specific questions and looking for turnarounds to gently challenge any stressful thought. This process is simple and can be done by children. But it is profound. It is a meditation. And it deepens with regular practice. Are you ready to go from stress to free? Stress relief is only a few questions away.
Even if you can’t change reality through action, you can always create more space inside yourself by questioning your thinking. This means that NO situation can completely shut you down. You always have some wiggle room.
How are you living with money? If it’s not peaceful, notice what you’re thinking and try questioning what you believe. This can be a great place to start your journey with The Work.
