Non-resistance is key to receiving answers. Other than that, there are no rules as to how to ask the questions. Neal Donald Walsh wrote out his questions and then God wrote the answers through him. But you could be in a meditation where you ask and receive. You could be running, mountain climbing, floating in a pool, or doing something that doesn’t require strict attention, where you can open yourself up and release resistance and ask…then listen for the answers. You can ask out loud or silently, all that matters is that you ask with the intention of receiving an answer.

To get that answer, you must be non-resistant. That means you let the answers come to you. You don’t try to form them. If you feel you are struggling to create the answer, then that’s your ego doing the talking. You have to be willing to allow your mind to be free and open in order to hear a response.
