How are you?Let’s dive into the depths of this question!
This question flies around constantly, more than we even realize. We ask it, we answer it, and we accept it as common courtesy. But what if we did more than give a one-word reply, what if we expected an honest answer every time we asked this question? I believe if we gave more attention to this simple conversation of, “how are you?” we’d live in a much a different world.
The other day, as I was walking into a restaurant, I asked, “how are you?” And I got the classic answer, it was all of a 15 second conversation. I have that conversation almost daily with people, as I’m sure many of you do. For some reason, that specific day it stuck with me. Why do we settle? We’re all human, we’re all in this life together – so why not connect?
I noticed when I asked the question of, “how are you?” I just naturally expected the one-word reply. I realized, maybe if I was to expect a more connective answer, a more honest answer, I’d receive it — whatever you expect, you receive.
Energy, frequency and vibration are the most powerful things in this Universe. We all have the gift of being able to feel energy because we are energy. In this case, it all starts with the energy of how we ask this question. The game of energy is like the game of catch/throw – throw some high vibrations, catch some high vibrations. What you give is what you get.
I know, we all lead busy lives, and we all have our ups/downs. And somedays, answering “how are you?” in an honest way seems like diving down a vulnerable rabbit hole. But what if we were to open up just a smidge, what if we were honest with our souls? Think about it, could anything “bad” really happen?
Vulnerability is the first step to anything, and when we are vulnerable, we can lean into our feelings and use them to jump!Ace
The next time I ask, “how are you?”, I will smile and let my aura spread the highest vibration of love. I’ll expect a connection and I’ll open my heart to the moment. You never know how you can touch someone or make someone’s day. A bit of kindness or an honest check-in of how someone is feeling could totally change their outlook on life. We’re all here to help each other.
The next time I answer, “how are you?”, I will smile and let my aura spread the highest vibration of love. I’ll check in with my feelings and trust my intuition on how to share. I will protect my energy, but I will put my full effort into being authentically me. I’ll throw the frequency ball back with an honest answer, maybe it’s just a sentence or two. But I will take a leap and connect, because connection makes us human. In a world testing our freedom to connect, I will always open my arms.
So, how are you? 😊
PS – Shout out to my family and some friends…in honestly answering “how are you?” with them, I got to see this in a new way. Good conversation is such a gift to me, and I feel blessed to experience it with some amazing people.
