We all have a subconscious mind. We don’t really talk about it that often because, quite frankly, it’s a confusing concept.
Your subconscious never stops working, it controls your breathing, blood circulation, and digestion. Even when we sleep, the subconscious mind is firing away; hence why most of us dream.
Imagine it like this. Your conscious mind is like the tip of an iceberg, you can easily see it and interact with it. Your subconscious mind is the other 95% of the iceberg; you know it’s there, but you can’t always see it or interact with it.
What if you could make your subconscious work for you, even while you sleep? Although this is extremely difficult to study, many of the world’s great minds believe this is possible. Many of them practice a similar exercise to boost their creativity and clarity, using the subconscious.
- 10 minutes before bed grab a pen and paper and write down questions, requests, and goals for your subconscious. Be as specific as you can.
- When you first wake up, immediately go somewhere quiet and dump out all your thoughts onto paper. Right down answers to those questions and requests, anything that comes to mind, even if it doesn’t seem like a good idea.
This is a skill that will take practice. But with consistency, you can become adept at achieving creative boosts thought this method.
Remember, your thoughts are the blueprint of the life you are building one day at a time. Learning to channel your thinking — both consciously and subconsciously — will show you where you want to go, and how to get there.
