Power of Your Subconscious Mind
Why should you limit your problem solving
skills to conscious techniques only if, researchers say, our
subconscious mind works 200 million times faster? Unlock your inner
Our conscious is only a small fraction of the
subconscious, and the conscious has only a small fraction of information
that is available to the subconscious. Actually, information that is
available to the subconscious is unlimited, and cues are around you all the
What you need is just to tune your subconscious
mind into relevant cues by focusing on a specific problem and opening your
subconscious. If you do so, relevant information, insights and solutions
will suddenly come to you seemingly from out of nowhere.
Process of Problem Solving
“One should never impose one's views on a
problem; one should rather study it, and in time a solution will reveal
advised Albert Einstein. Cultivate burning desire to solve the problem
you face. Visualize inspiring and joyful problem-free future. Analyze the
problem for a short time, brainstorm some solutions but don’t finalize any.
What you need to do is just to start the ball rolling, and then let your
subconscious mind take over the task. Saturate yourself in the problem and
then take a break. Shelve the problem for a day or two,
even if you think you can already see a solution. Don’t think about it – it
should not weigh on your conscious mind.
Although you are not consciously thinking about
the problem, your subconscious is working on it, and will amaze you by a
simple and elegant solution that is nearly impossible to produce
deliberately using a linear, logical thought process. Trust your
intuition. Intuition is how you gain answers from the subconscious and
gain insight on how to solve your problems. Write any flashes of inspiration
down, and then later evaluate how you can use them to solve a complex
problem. If a few days pass without an insightful solution announcing
itself, start thinking about the problem again. but try to define it in a
better way this time, so it becomes easier to solve.
Your subconscious is very open while you relax,
meditate or are asleep. You are also most prone to receiving insights when
you are taking a bath, or staring at the sea, or doing something physical
rather than cerebral. Just be positive, use
positive affirmations – especially in the morning and shortly before you
go to sleep at night – to install new beliefs.
