The very first thing you should do is to arm yourself with all the available information so your subconscious has enough material to use. Open your mind to whatever may be relevant to the task at hand. The idea is to harbor different pieces of data that you begin to connect even the most uncorrelated elements.
Once you have collected all the important elements, leave your ideas to ‘ferment’. Let your subconscious work on those thoughts day in and out. Studies show that inspiration works better if you leave it alone. You will find yourself more receptive to insights when you aren’t thinking of anything in particular.
Go through the Creative Process
Time spent doing things that allow your mind to rest is creative time. It may be taking a long drive, a short walk, a warm shower, or a day hike. To allow your intuition to reach its full potential, you need to learn how to relax and let it find its own way out.
3 POWERFUL STEPS TO AWAKEN YOUR INTUITION:
STEP 1: Acknowledge your intuitive power
You have an incredibly powerful subconscious, you have to learn to trust it. Go beyond the logical explanations of the issue at hand and go with your gut. Partner with your subconscious and harness its powerful potential.
STEP 2: Speak to your intuition
Set clear goals for your subconscious – what solutions, what answers, what insights. Speak to your intuition confidently, repeatedly stating what you want from it, but express it as if your subconscious has already begun the process and is now doing the work for you by repeating the phrase to yourself: “right now, my intuition tells me…”
STEP 3: Relax and recharge
Have faith and expect that the right answer to the issue or problem at hand will be revealed. Go to bed with the confidence that when the sun rises tomorrow morning, the answers will soon be clear.
These 3 steps will only take you less than 10 minutes and it is best to practice them before bedtime. It’s in the transition from wakefulness to sleep, where you switch from conscious to subconscious, that you can best reach and train your subconscious mind.
