A question and some people don’t like it, as if oneself is being attacked. Seriously, I have always been taught to ask if you don’t know or don’t get it. When you ask questions, you learn.
In addition to being a medium, healer and teacher, I am a writer. I’ve been a reporter for nearly 30 years writing articles for newspapers and magazines. I ask questions. It’s what I do. Just ask my grown children.
Backstory: The kids knew if they brought a boyfriend or girlfriend home, they would be asked questions and then more questions. I swear my daughter prepped dates before they came over. My son once tried to hide one of his girlfriends. Did I mention I’m a reporter?
Even today the kids know if I find something out, I’m going to ask and not just one or two questions. My two fabulous grown children have pretty good heads on their shoulders.
In a group setting, when we’re discussing plans and someone shares what they need to, questions come to my mind in seconds. Some people might think this is a superpower and maybe it is, but some people get mad when I ask questions they don’t want to hear, or they don’t know the answer to. Trust me, they are always good questions.
At times, I blurt questions out. It’s so I do not forget. I remind myself that bringing a pen and notepad is a good idea. This reminds me of an adjunct instructor I had at UCF. For a long time, he was a reporter, covering politics. He never had a pen or pencil when he needed one. I kind of picked that up from him.
Do not allow anyone to stifle your questions. The more people resist answering those questions, the more you know there’s something to them, something going on behind the scenes. Become a reporter – a good reporter always leaves the best question for last knowing full well that the interview is about to be over.
In some instances, it may be time to look for a new opportunity in your life. They say when you let people, places and things go, others will appear. Ask Spirit (God) to assist.
