God did not send us into this world alone. And He is constantly speaking to us, but it is up to us to "receive all that the Father hath."
Tips on Asking:
1. Find a quite place.
2. Write down a question that you have been pondering.
3. Fill your temple with truth and light by reading scriptures, singing a hymn, praying, writing in your journal, or testifying to yourself with truth statements (thoughts, mantras, words that you know are truth).
4. Take what you believe is the answer to your question (after you studied it out and come to your own conclusions) and state that is what your going to do (as an affirmative statement).
5. If the light (spirit) stays with you, your course is true. If it leaves (you have a stupor of thought) the answer is no, or not exactly. :)
